He realizes that recovery is key when it comes to building muscle.
Back and Arm Workout

Eating Clean While Traveling
In his line of work, Jordan’s schedule gets really busy from time to time. There is a lot of traveling, going to fitness events, and coaching his clients. Naturally, during all of this, Jordan wants to stay on top of his diet.
He achieves this by planning all of his meals ahead and using meal prep services. This allows him to stay ripped even when he’s moving from hotel to hotel every week.
Jordan has 6 meals a day and 42 meals a week. Out of these 42 meals, only 1 is allowed as a ‘cheat meal’. Other meals are extremely clean and strict with plenty of lean protein, healthy carbs, and good fats. Jordan also consumes a lot of fiber to help with digestion and nutrient absorption.
Here’s Jordan explaining his diet in more detail:
“I get a lot of people who message me and ask ‘man how do you eat sushi, pizza, burgers, ice cream, etc and stay lean’. You guys have to remember this isn’t a daily thing, I diet hard every single day eating only 1900-2000 kcal, do 50 mins of cardio every day and eat nothing but clean quality foods.” Jordan Strickland
