Q&A with morellifit – Vol. 1


Welcome Morellifit Family to a workout nutrition Q + A with Michael. Today we focus on nutrition that has to do specifically with your workout routines.

Q – Can you eat protein prior to your workout?

Michael – You can. For me it’s not right up into your work out. 

Q – What is more important to eat before your workout?

Michael – Fuel for sure! But a couple things you need to take into consideration. When was your last meal? If you ate two hours ago, and you had lots of carbs you potentially don’t need to eat before you work out. Its all predicated on you. Your body, your goals, and what your training looks like. If you’re going on a treadmill for 45 minutes you don’t need carbs for that; sweet potato, white rice or any carbs for that. It all depends on your training. But you definitely want to have some fuel before and after a work out.

Q – What’s HIIT? 

Michael – High Intensity Interval Training. It’s my number one selling program bar no one. And I think we just passed 100,000 students world wide. Hittmax.com is essentially my version of high intensity interval training. I basically took plyometrics and strength and married them together to give you HIIT MAX. In a nut shell it is high intensity exercise followed by either low intensity exercises or a short period of rest.

Q – What is the best way to bulk?

Michael – Eat. If your really lean, like skin and bones and a hard gainer, and your goal is to bulk I hate to say it, but it’s milk and peanut butter. Almond butter if you want to go a little healthier and whole milk, pasture raised and the more organic the better. If you are lean hard gainer, that is highly recommended. Me and D are the opposite of that. We look at a cheese burger and gain weight. The moral is that you have to eat above your TDEE. You need to figure out your TDEE and you can go to morellifit.com and click on the blog. There is a BMR calculator so you can figure out your TDEE. Now in order to gain weight you have to eat above your total daily energy expenditure. If you don’t you won’t gain weight. If 3500 calories is a pound, then eat 500 above your TDEE for 7 days. In a week, you know that you’ve gained a 1 lb. You always have to remember, the cleaner you eat, the cleaner the gains.

Know that I’m thankful for your support, and I’ll always have your back.

Be patient. Stay the course. And let’s get fit, together.
