Body weight remains the same.
    A new gym can throw you off a little until you figure out your routine. It's like getting a new car takes some time to figure out all the toys..


  2. Day 5:

    Leg day. Started off with some light front squats and worked my way up from there. I will admit that front squats are very humbling and I just can't load on the plates like back squats. They do however feel much better on my back and knees and I'm able to really target my quads with them. I then moved on to leg curls followed by leg extensions and leg press. I started to cramp up whole doing calf raises though. Body weight remains the same.

  5. Add Avocados or bananas into your diet (avocados have a higher potassium content than bananas)

  7. The past few days I have been trying to down as much clean food as possible. I'm hitting Subway for lunch everyday and consuming 2 other meals during my shift. As the saying goes "If you wanna be big, you gotta eat big". Trying to hit 3500+ calories per day

    Well to give you an idea of my diet I'll list my normal staples. Oatmeal, fruit, and protein shake in the morning. Second meal a few hours later is usually a meal replacement bar. Lunch usually consists of a wrap, sandwich or sub. A banana and some nuts a few hours later. Then before I leave work I have a pre workout meal of oatmeal, more fruit and a protein shake. Post workout I have my last shake of the day mixed with a few tablespoons of dextrose. Dinner an hour later either consists of some form of chicken breast, tuna or Tilapia and some potatoes or rice with a salad. My final meal of the day includes natty peanut butter, some eggs and another banana. My apologies if this post is grammatically weak, I'm at work now and typing from a phone isn't my forte.

  14. Day 6:

    Had an intense shoulder day. Between sets I was amped beyond belief and just wanted to keep attacking the weights. I had to force myself to leave the gym. Also started dermacrine today. Body weight will be measured tomorrow morning.

    Nix the meal replacement bar, last meal of the day make it red meat. With breakfast add 2tbsp pb to your oats with a tbsp of honey.

    Macadamia nuts and almonds should be a staple in there,
    Psalms 62:1-62:2

    Halo takes some time to kick. You need to find your TDEE and how many kcals your actually eating instead of guessing too.

    Give it time
