    Getting Huge.......Then getting Lean!


    Hey ladies and gents. I'm finally back.....fall ball is coming to and end and I can get back on it full tilt. Over the past 8 weeks I've managed to gain about 13lbs. I'd guess bout 5lbs of bloat (20gr Creatine mono/day and maybe 2lbs of fat. So maybe 6lbs of LBM.

    I've been training off and on with a shoulder issue but I'm finally clear to begin lifting (thanks igf-1lr3!)

    The diet is pretty spot on usually looks like so.....

    Meal 1:
    2 scoops Whey
    bowl of total or oats

    Meal 2:
    8-10oz chicken
    1/2 cup long grain rice

    Post workout:
    3 scoops ATW blend
    1/2 carbo force
    2 packets low-sugar oats

    Meal 4:
    8-10oz lean ground beef (boiled in water and strained)
    50gr whole wheat pasta
    1 cup pasta sauce (low carb)
    parmasion(sp?) cheese

    Meal 5:
    1 scoop Syntha 6
    1 scoop Muscle Milk
    10oz skim milk

    Meal 6:
    8-10oz chicken
    1 cup veggies
    sesame oil
    oriental seasoning

    Meal 7:
    8-10oz ground beef
    1/4 cheese
    seasoning

    Meal 8:
    1-2 scoops Casien in water

    I consume A LOT of sodium.....I mean A LOT. Only supps right now are All The Wheys TCG mix, additional Creatine Mono and digestive enzymes.

    I'm not be taking too many supps because cash flow is low.Just the occasional pre-workout mix and creatine mono

    Workouts will be pretty simple until my next DC blast OCT. 13th

    Monday: Chest and minor tri work
    * I'll throw in some CG bench and kick backs for tris
    Tuesday: cardio and abs
    Wednesday: Legs and minor shoulders
    *I'll throw in side and rear laterals along with shrugs for shoulders
    Thursday: cardio and abs
    Friday: Back and minor bi/forearm work
    * I'll throw in some CG pull-downs and bicep 21's for bis and DC style forearm work.
    Saturday & Sunday: OFF

    I always do rotator stuff before the workout. that makes the most sense to warm it up first to me

    Well im back on it! I felt really good 2day and got after it.

    135x15
    155x12
    185x10
    225x8

    CG T-Bar Row

    I'm really surprised with the weight I was moving 2day. I didn't really eat too much and got light headed as hell during my workout a few times.

    I added LG Sciences SLIN to my protocol Monday, forgot to mention that. 2caps before breakfast and 2caps post workout.

    Im taken next week kinda easy workout wise then hitting DC hard again since baseball will be totally done for about 8 weeks. I plan on putting on some serious size over the next 12 weeks. Im shooting for 15lbs total. 1lb of LBM/week and throw in some water weight for good measure

    just getting my weights down for DC training next monday. thats all my workouts will be this week. Being sick took a toll of strength a little but im sure it'll bounch back next monday. I did each exercise until I felt it getting tough then stopped. I prolly could muster 2 or 3 more reps on each

    Flat BB Bench
    225x6x3x1

    Seated Behind the Head Smith Press
    135x15x8x5

    Reversge Grip Bench
    135x15x6x4
    -I finally got this move down, I can really feel it in my tri's

    Then I did the DC stretch for each. I'll post my diet up here some time later this week as I am really happy at my results thus far with it.

    I will also try and get pictures up but it's a rough week with midterms and scrimages...I'll try my best.

    Diet


    Here's what I've been doing lateley. Im really impressed with it thus far.

    On non workout days I take in carbs after cardio and before and after practice; 50gr at each time. Each sunday I've been doing a mini-carb load. I'll eat maybe 400gr carbs for the day and just sun 2 higher fat meals for a higher protein/carb meal.

    Meal 1:
    6whole eggs
    1 scoop whey

    Meal 2:
    8oz lean ground beef
    1/4 cup cheese
    1TBS EVOO

    Pre-Workout:
    8-10oz Chicken
    1/2 cup Brown Rice

    Post Workout:
    4 scoops Whey
    50gr WMS
    2 Packets Low-Sugar Oats

    Post-Workout Meal
    8-10oz Chicken
    1/2 cup Brown Rice

    Meal 6:
    8oz lean ground beef
    1/4 cup cheese
    1TBS EVOO

    Meal 7:
    2scoops Casien
    1TBS EVOO

    Totals
    Protein:400gr 40%
    Carbs: 250gr 25%
    Fat: 150gr 35%
    Calories:~4,000

    damn 2day suck'd! Started out GREAT then turn ****ty quick. I got in 35min of fasted cardio then got in my whey and oats post cardio. Meals 2 and 3 were perfect. Got my pre practice meal in and we did our core work then it got bad.....real bad. We did Indian Runs for an hour strraight. No breaks so I probably ended up running close to 10miles.

    As soon as practice was over we had study tables so I had to stop at MacDonalds and pick up 5 dbl cheese bugers (minus the cheese and add big mac sauce!) Its a cheap big mac and I suggest everyone whos bulking to add them in every now and again. That got me 125gr of protein and 150gr carbs that I desperately needed.

    I just got another shake in with some EVOO. Hopefully 2maro will go better....im beat.

    Well today was also so-so. I was just lethargic the whole day. I started double dosing the last vial og my pGH I found monday and I didnt think it would have this kind of reaction......but maybe. Just a bad day I assume, not the pGH.

    I re-vampd my diet a little after some help from some guys over at intense muscle. I know I know I complained about some happenings over there but I feel like the diet is nailed down.

    I trained legs 2day and it was a day to figure out what weights I am going to use on my 3 exercises for hams/quads

    Barebell Squat
    275x6

    Leg Press (narrow stance, heels hanging off the bottom)
    6 plates each sidex8

    Tip-Toe Smith Squat
    235x8

    Lying Leg Curl
    12x10

    Seated Leg Curl
    110x12

    Single Leg Curls
    60x10

    I did 2-3 sets before each of those final weights to get a feel then stopped about 2 before failure just to get an idea like I had been doing earlier in the week.

    It was kinda tough after that long run yesterday but I pushed thru it. My joints hurt and muscles were a bit fatigued

    Welp baseball is fist ****ing me right now. We had a 5hr practice 2day!!!! Then coach took us out to eat with a $20 limit, so I of course got steak. Diet hasn't been too bad just not getting in as much whole food as I wanted. I went thru 2 Met-RX bars at practice. Their protein plus ones I think, the oreo mud pie ones.

    I did abbs and cardio. Since I've droppd my carbs my abs are back to where they were. I've dropped like 1lb I think so there goes some of that water. I feel good though. 2maro is going to be another light day. Im going to get an idea for weights. I'll try and get some pics up this week, if not by next when baseball fizzles down.

    Got some good streching in

    I changed up my carbs to just 2 meals post workout and here I am almost 23 hours post workout and still feel full, and mosty importantly, not bloated.

    The school scale put me in at 191lbs. I dont know about that but I did get a little off the diet on saturday with a lot of sodium and little water. We'll see what its like at the end of the week but for now that will be my DC starting weight.

    I dont really have a goal set for my end weight just that my waist stay under 32.5"
