Typical Monday and Wednesday Training ScheduleI told an online friend of mine Rich Tweten who is a personal trainer in Vancouver about my training day on Monday.
Rich is know for training movie stars. One of which is Kristen Dalton who was in Stephen Kings "Dead Zone" and just recently played Jack Nicholson's girlfriend in the Oscar winning "Departed" from 2006.

He was surprised at how much work I do, so I thought I'd post what my days are like on Monday and Wednesday.
These two days are special because of my Taekwondo training. I do Taekwondo on Mondays and Wednesdays, so they're added to my normal training routine.
7am Wake up, have a glass of water and a cup of Calli tea
8am Meal #1 Egg White and Chocolate Whey Protein Mix drink with about 1 Tbsp of Udo's oil
9am In the gym for my morning cardio on the Cybex ArcTrainer
10:30am Meal #2 - 8 Egg white omelet with 3 extra whole eggs, ¼ cup oatmeal and a handful of raw cauliflower
1:00 Taekwondo training for 1.25 hours
3:00 Meal #3, chicken breast and a large salad
4:30ish Weight Training - Chest and Back (currently)
5:30 Meal #4 Post Workout Shake Egg white and Chocolate Whey protein shake with 1 Tbsp Udo's oil
6:30 Meal #5 Steak or Chicken breast and large salad
9:00 Meal #6 Chicken breast or Steak and large salad
This would be on a non carbohydrate cycle day of course because there are no starchy carbohydrates in this meal plan.
This just happens to be what I was doing on Monday June 25th. Protein shakes are not typical, but I'm finding that with the amount of training and the travel times associated with them, I just don't have the time to cook full meals in between training times
Food is more thermogenic than protein shakes because it requires so much more work to digest it, that it burns a lot of fat in the process. At least with the shakes, I'm getting the protein and fat that I need from the best bio-available protein sources… egg whites and whey protein. If I had the time, I'd favor a cooked meal over the shakes
So yes, three training sessions on Mondays and Wednesdays. 9am, 1pm and 4:30 pm
