30 Bananas a Day!

80/10/10 athlete's daily routine

I've been into 80/10/10 the past two and a half years :)

My schedule changed to being extremely simple yet productive. Enjoying EVERY single day as it is my last!


5:20 Waking up, drinking 1-2 L of water, sipping a 15 banana + grape juice smoothie while listening to some of my favorite songs, "One Day" by Matisyahu is a great one I like. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WRmBChQjZPs

6:00 I fill up two waterbottles, grab my Scattante cyclocross bike, and head off to do a 3 hour, 44 mile ride climb and descent off of Mt. Diablo's summit. Amazing views!!! A lot of wildlife, spotted a few tarantulas, mountain deer, jack rabbits, squirrels, and one time a mountain lion!

9:00 Back already to home. I eat 10 mangoes that I prepared from last night, and head on my bike for about 15 minutes to the YMCA (a popular gym in the US). Do 3 miles of easy swimming, get out, change, and lift weights for half an hour. I talk a lot to the guys over there that strength train. Then I do a 18:00 5k tempo run on a treadmill and go take a great feeling shower. Feeling refreshed, I stretch for a bit and cycle back home.

12:00 I blend up a 2K cal dateorade with mixed berries and sip it while listening to some more music :)

12:30 My roommate drives me and himself over to the UCB campus and I either study in the Life Sciences library (my favorite one!) or sit in lectures for classes.Between classes I eat at least 1500 calories of oranges, watermelon, apples, grapes, and/or sweet pineapple.  I help a lot of people by editing their papers or doing a bit of tutoring for fun. Sometimes I go to UCB's government meetings and speak my opinion up over there.

7:00 Getting home from a short drive with my roommate I eat three heads of lettuce + some spinach + an avocado + grape tomatoes. I like to wrap in grape tomatoes with lettuce and eat that way, tastes so incredible!! I prepare everything for tomorrow. Right after I read for an hour. Anything from philosophy, psychology, literature, to physiology, something that forces critical thinking.

8:30 I get ready for bed, chat and say goodnight to someone special I fell in love with :)

8:50 Knocked out!


Life is great! :D I'd love to spend the every last day of my life like this(: I feel really peaceful.

Thanks Kevin! Beast mode definitely sums it up, hah. It worked like nothing else has for athletic performance. Glad it is for you.

Tiffani, I use a variety of resources, depending on the time of year and price. But a combination of Trader Joe's, Ranch 99/Seafood City Asian market, and two wholesalers nearby Concord along with Costco typically works out well. I'm usually in Berkeley and Pleasant Hill/Concord. 

I'd highly recommend sitting down and doing some math to work things out, and searching online for "wholesale produce" with your city. This lifestyle definitely requires you to be a good planner and strategist if you have a busy schedule.

Hi, I am also from the Bay Area and fruit is so exspensive!!! Do you mind me asking who your supplier is? Or how to get a supplier to sell it to me cheaper in bulk? Thx!

Haha, thanks Richard, the wings might take a while though lol ;) but yes, I didn't start working out this much overnight. Haha, more of something that built up over the past 10 years. Everything starts small, whether it be taking a 15 minute walk and doing some pushups everyday, or be able to sink in a few pages out of a textbook. Just make sure you're having fun with it and living how you WANT to live (:

Damn man, one hell of an inspiration! Thanks for sharing your routine, I read it before but it didn't sink it.  You are what we all should be aspiring to be, exercise and diet wise!  We can all do so much better than we are doing, your going to force yourself to evolve acting like that! Your probably going to sprout wings next...

Oh my, amazing you can pull this off, very inspiring. Don't know how you can exercise that much on a full 10 mango belly :D
