I started doing this a few weeks back. Actually, I’m not sure. Maybe a month, it could be more. Before, I go on, I want to stress that everything I’m saying has to be done in a specific order. The order is as important as the actual steps. Mucking around with it will leave you with a sub-par experience. Here we go.
First, get at least seven and a half hours of sleep and no more than nine. And don’t go drinking the night before. I’m not sure why that range of seven and a half to nine works, but based on personal experience it seems to be the sweet spot. When you wake up make sure you have a ton of morning light. Open all your windows and turn on all your lights. You need to have as much light as possible. I can’t stress this enough. This will help you wake up much faster than usual – that is if you don’t do this already.
Follow this up with 8,000 IU’s of vitamin D. There is a lot of debate on how much vitamin D you should be taking. I’ve experimented with daily doses ranging from 2,000 to 8,000. Personally, I didn’t feel anything until I crossed 5,000 IUs. Once I got to 8,000 that was a real eye opener. We’re talking the equivalent of a large Starbucks coffee without the post caffeine crash 5 hours later. Make sure to have the vitamin D with breakfast. I usually eat a 4 egg omlette with some mushrooms, red peppers and bacon. It’s important to include a fat because Vitamin D is fat soluble.
Now go to the gym and do some high intensity interval training. I usually do a crossfit session, which has the same effect. You’ll want to do something like hill running, 10 sprints with a 30 second rest in between. Or you can do a crossfit workout like Cindy (as many rounds as you can of 5 pulls, 10 push ups and 15 squats in 20min). You want something extremely intense for a short period of time. Don’t do anything longer than 20min.
After the workout you should be feeling pretty good. It’ll be like you just heard a really funny joke and you’ll want to start laughing for no reason.
Here’s where you’ll take a normal adrenaline rush and turn it into an energy explosion.
Go buy a 100 gram bar of dark chocolate within the range of 70-85%. Eat this about an hour after your workout. And finally another 2 hours later get a small americano from Starbucks.
Here’s your day
– Wake up at 10:00am and have breakfast
– 12:00pm work out
– 1:00pm get home from the gym
– 2:00pm eat chocolate bar
– 4:00pm have americano
Quality sleep + Vitamin D + Endorphins + sugar + caffeine = AWESOMEHOLYFUCKARGGGG!
