    my main concern is that the calories and the protein are too low on non - workout days.. maybe just add in a scoop of whey on those days? about 30g protein/160 cals. any input would be greatly appreciated.

    when in doubt always keep protein more high than low due to the thermogenic effect of breaking it down, studies have shown bodies tolerance for very high grams per pound body weight tolerance to protein when working out without weight / fat gain, the body will oxidise and use in other ways
    this is obviously as long as the total calories for the day fits within your macros or total calories. protein also helps feel fuller for longer so yea go for it would be my personal answer

    one other thing as a general rule it is healthier to alternate your protein sources so maybe switch up chicken and steak on occasion ? also might stave off boredom
