The Mike Tyson training program may or may not be for you. In fact, some bodybuilders do not like to run as it consumes nutrients and energy that they want to save to build muscle. If you do both without a long rest, you may end up losing muscle when you burn off the nutrients. There are bodybuilders who run, don’t get me wrong. Running builds up muscle fiber in the legs, it is best to rest after your workout before running.
As for Mike’s diet, oatmeal is a good option. The steak, if it’s lean, is good too. Pasta? Well, there are mixed opinions on eating pasta, but you should definitely avoid pasta made from white flour. Whole wheat is a good carbohydrate for a bodybuilder. Based on the list provided, you are lacking essential fats. You should consume healthy unsaturated fats such as fatty fish, nuts, seeds, olive oil, and flax seed oils. Eating 5-7 small meals throughout the day has also been shown to be a much better plan than just having three meals.
