Workout and nutrition by Grant A. Williams

Sometimes I get people asking how often I work out and what I eat.

Here I will explain briefly what I do:

Monday to friday, morning workout from 7h til 7:50

A 50 minute workout will consist on either a quick 5 minute cardio workout and slight stretching.
The Ill break into  each exercise with light weight and growing gradually until getting to the highest weight possible and repeating that highest 3 times and then doing two series with half the weight.

For example:

Inclined dumbell lift will be:

10 x 15kg
8 x 20
6 x 22,5
4 x 30kg
4 x 30kg
4 x 30kg
10 x 15gk
10 x 15kg

And I do that approximately with all exercises.

A peck day will consist on about 4 different type of exercises and on the same day I'll do bicep workout and wil consist on the same process but maybe only do 2 or 3 types of exercises.

Inbetween series I'll either be jumping rope, box jumping, crunches of doing some squats to keep the heart rate high.

This is what a week can look like:

Monday - Chest and Biceps
Tuesday - back and Triceps
Wednesday - Legs and Shoulder
Thursday - Chest and Biceps
Friday - Back and Triceps

If I go saturday I'll do about 10 mins cardio and less lifting.

Then Sunday I'll try to do a few hours on the bike outside or hiking.

Monday then will then start with Lets and Shoulders. So I workout a muscle group every three days.

I will do that type of workout for about 3 months and then change over to a lighter weight and more rep rutine.


I've been a vegetarian since november 2015. So I eat no animals, meaning no meat, white meat, fish or seafood. I do eat cheese and eggs, vegetables, fruit, grains, nuts, seeds and others.

Heres a great salad I prepared using Quinoa, much better than using cous-cous. Cous-cous is made from flower and Quinoa is a grain/seed full of nutrients.
