    lean gains will do that to ya!

    I wouldn't worry too much about the calories being up by 200, you are going to experience an increase in protein synthesis and calorie burning while on cycle so I am not so sure you shouldn't be 3200 2200 anyway.

    Oh if you do go to 3200 2200 just drop back down to 3000 2000 right after cycle, if I keep the save cals for too long into PCT it turns on me right quick.

    Just watch your body comp very closely, when you go into pct watch closer. Gets really tricky...

    Day 5

    Had a different schedule today. Got my lift in early because we had to travel to my brothers place 4 hours away. Hit workout 3 at 0900. I had a great training session today. I feel I am doing a great job with focusing on the muscle group being worked. I didnt get the calories I needed today due to the hectic schedule, but I stayed in my feeding window and had decent macros. Supplementation stays the same, and I am begining to see some results (in the mirror). I will have weight and body fat updates on monday.

    Training

    Workout 3 Reps Weight Reps Weight Reps Weight Reps Weight
    DB Shoulder Press 8 40lbs 8 40lbs 8 35lbs 7 25lbs
    DB Pull Over 8 50lbs 8 50lbs 8 40lbs 8 30lbs
    Smith Incline Press 8 125lbs 8 125lbs 8 105lbs 8 85lbs
    Reverse Grip Bench 8 165lbs 8 165lbs 7 85lbs 7 65lbs
    Hex Bar RDL 8 205lbs 8 205lbs 8 175lbs 8 135lbs
    Lex Extension 8 140lbs 8 130lbs 8 90lbs 6 50lbs


    This was a great session today I feel that the weights I chose were near perfect. I hit my reps range perfectly failing between 6-8. I know that the numbers arent high, but the focus and attention to muscle groups is spot on.

    Nutrition

    2,883 calories
    Fat: 101.9g (38%)
    Carbohydrate: 115.4g (19%)
    Protein: 263.3g (43%)

    I should have had more carbs than fats today, but I was very limited due to traveling. Hope to get right tomorrow.

    Day 6

    Dosed 550-XD as usual. I forgot to bring my RecoverPro, but used some of my brothers universal bcaa caps. I followed Doc's recommendation of just eating one large blow out meal with the family. We went to an Irish pub and had some Irish Nachos with grilled chicken and a chicken bacon wrap. Needles to say I am still stuffed and eager to get back to my normal nutrition. I'm thinking I probably had somewhere around 4,000 calories today possibly more. I still followed my 16/8 feeding window. I will have to be careful tomorrow to stay inside my macros which will be challenging because mom is cooking Easter dinner. I don't foresee any issues with this also I'd like to get some kind of cardio in tomorrow.

    Yah the extended fast and one meal is how i handle these situations and then when I start eating I try and fill up on protein and veg as much as possilble before I hit the carbs. This actually stuff from the lean gains site it's gold in these situations and I will employ it again today. I will also do some fasted cardio to prepare. It's a great way to go about it, you can enjoy yourself guilt free ...

    Those big meals will put your mind at rest so you aren't in temptation all the time and at times your body even needs those extra nutrients! Especially since you are on 550XD, Coming along nicely sir lovin this log!
    I hope everybody thinks i'm crazy, because you cannot be a sane person and go through the type of pain i am willing to put myself through to be where i want to be, Once I completely win the war between my mind and body, my reign will begin. ~Me

    Thanks Tiny, thankfully this is just one in a long while that my patents come to see me so the temptation is only here while they're here! Not that I don't like that they come down to see us but they don't really understand the whole Lean Gains approach and are constantly asking if I want something to eat lol. This morning I got to watch everybody eat eggs bacon toast and jalapeño cheese grits. Not that this was something I just had to have, but it's amazing how much the mind thinks it wants food when it is right in front of your face! I held out then tore up a whole rotisserie chicken (no skin) at 1300hr. Yeah boy! Tomorrow back to the gym baby also stepping on the scale and checking BF%

    It's cool they know that I do my own thing. No worries. It's not like they aren't going to eat just because I choose to do things the unconventional way.

    Day 7

    Another day with family. Heading back home tomorrow am and going right to the gym...I can't wait! I did ok today getting in 2800 calories. My macros could have been better, but considering the circumstances not bad. I will check BF% and weight tomorrow. I'm sure I'll be holding on to some water and I appear to be puffy right now. I plan to hit the gym hard this week maybe throw in some hyperfit sessions to battle the intake from this weekend. My dad is coming next weekend, but he is more health oriented if you will meaning he is a regular in the gym and understands nutritional needs. Hopefully it will prove to be a better weekend. After this I see no more hurdles to stand between me and my goals.
