Training

Balancing Training and Rest

Jefferson enjoys training hard. His workouts sometimes last up to two hours and are extremely high in volume.

However, Jefferson also knows when it’s time to take rest. After five consecutive days of working out, he’ll take two days off to let his body recover.

This is crucial for Jefferson, as his intense workouts break his muscle fibers down. With two days of rest, his muscles are able to fully repair and grow stronger each week.

Stretching

Jefferson’s philosophy on training is to not only be strong and look good, but to also keep a high mobility of his muscles.

In order to achieve this, Jefferson makes sure to stretch after his workouts. This not only makes him more flexible, it also improves the blood flow to his muscles and reduces the chance of an injury when working out.

Nutrition

To keep his muscles supplied with energy, Jefferson eats a moderate amount of carbohydrates. These include sweet potatoes, brown rice, and quinoa. Which are all complex sources of carbs.

Jefferson may also eat a simple form of carbs before and after his workouts, when his muscles need a quick supply of glycogen. His favorite form of simple carbs are fruits – mainly bananas and citrus fruits.

When it comes to fats, Jefferson’s favorite food sources are avocados, nuts and seeds, and coconut oil.
