    thanks mate..yeah downtown has all kinds of things to do, seriously - concerts, nice new library, new convention center across street from me, the Embassy is down there ~a block down (concerts/plays etc), a park is within short driving distance with pool, and they just refinished the tennis courts so I got new ones to play one...the ballpark was built couple yrs ago, is really one of the nicest minor league parks in the country, very well laid out and atmosphere is very family-oriented - I take my son to couple games every yr..festivals go on down there, fair once a yr etc etc...also, wish I woulda lived down there for last couple yrs, the venue (art museum) where the bb'ing shows were held I competed in twice, Midwest open (Nat'l qualifiers) will now be within walking distance of my crib, how cool would it have been to be able to walk over there, go compete, and just walk home? then walk back for night show...wow

    everything all pretty much within walking distance, ima be getting my walk on that's for sure

    yeah things are in route to procuring on that front, gonna take me awhile to get so in meantime I got some nice orals to use up, then sweet PCT planned...be couple months before I hit the dark side

    Pad sounds awesome man! The city really isn't so bad, once you adjust to the little inconveniences like traffic - there's a lot of positives to offset all the negatives. Gf lives right next to Forest Park in the Lou & it's def very different from my place in the burbs but it has its own charms. And if we're bored, it's purely our own fault lol

    lol...yeah man, excited as hell, and traffic on this particular street is not all that bad tbh - prolly helps it is on one-way street too
    our downtown is laid out really well actually, is not where rush hour/traffic jams congregate & occur



    forgot to say earlier: had an AWESOME workout (yes again), mauled some chesticles and widened the back, no abs today
    50min of pure power/swoleness

    and this meal I just got done eating, dinner tonight, was ungawdly tasty..couldn't find my cam off-hand, and was hungry/dint feel like letting my albacore tuna steak get cold (things aren't as good then), so I dint hunt down the cam to take a pic -- you'll just have to imagine:

    4oz mesquite albacore tuna steak + 5oz canned chunk white tuna w/ salsa
    salad/croutons/dressing + 2 slices pineapple
    1/2c old-fashioned oats + 2oz almond milk sprinkled w/ cinnamon
    1 serving tomato basil mini rice cakes + 1 full size white cheddar rice cake
    740cals, 90/70/12.5

    total cals for day after 500cal shake before bed will be 4265, with ~585g carbs
    it has been a fun day

    huge office in there, so will have combo office on one side/workout area on other
    when I say it is huge, I kid you not..that room and my bedroom are biggest rooms in place, with living room not too far behind
    where it skimps to allow for these huge rooms, is the kitchen and dining area - which I don't mind at all, kitchen laid out well to be able to use both sides/counters at once, and dining room I rarely use regularly anyway (always eating in either office or living room as I watch tv)

    Gf just used Two Men to get her stuff from the burbs to the city here - they're like 150/hr here but they rocked it out like they were getting paid accordingly. She was really happy with it, so I'm not complaining.

    I think the rate is more since they are using 4 guys instead of 2
    yeah they seem like legit business, pretty professional actually..always thought they were cheesy for some reason, I dunno one of those silly preconceptions you get for one reason or another that is based on absolutely nothing LOL
    had a friend recommend them for the move, pretty glad he did

    I actually had the exact same unfounded notion, but when I mentioned them to others after they made it so easy for her it sounds like other people have heard really good things too.

    UPDATES:

    all right, figured this was good time for first weekly update on the state of things...
    so it's been going pretty well - training has simply been phenomenal day-in/day-out; body comp has been solid/leanness maintained, weight gain accomplished; and cals have been ramped up in conservative fashion (yet still a bit more accelerated than originally planned)

    all that said: I see ways to improve this thing
    and it's all based around increasing caloric load a bit more aggressively and substantially, due to the fact weight has been static for couple days now, and in fact lost a pound overnight last night, despite going up slightly in cals...metabolism is simply on fire and stoked currently

    so, today will consume ~4500 cals, 585g carbs, and 75g fats -- as we raise the cal/carb load, fats can't help but increase a very small amount, as typically there is still small amount of fats in even the driest carb sources I have; altho, I did pick up some more beans, a blend that contains 0 fat, and will be consuming quite a bit of sirloin with these for awhile going forward
    my plan now is to be ~5000cals by this sunday or Monday, and touching 6000 by the following week after that -- altho all this eating is fun as hell, ima have to split things into another feeding I think, as meals are now all coming up on exceeding 800cals per, and will be getting a bit larger than what I want to consume at one time before too long

    on the training: again even tho this has been just outstanding, and even tho strength has been on turbo boost, and even tho I am adding size -- I want even more of all the aforementioned
    so, after this last day of the split tomorrow and rest day following, I will be going to a 5-day split, 1-basic-bodypart-per-day protocol that I have always found to work extremely well for growth...I just want to bring more isolated muscle group volume to the forefront, and really squeeze all avenues for growth here in the final stages of grow time

    I say "final stages of grow time", and what I refer to is the hormonal run; however, in all honestly I have some really cool things planned for a killer PCT period, and see no reason why I cannot continue to push the cals/training, and continue the growth cycle, thruout PCT (and beyond for that matter)...seriously
    we'll see how it goes, but I'm pretty confident how this is all gonna turn out

    anyway, there you have it, first update in the books -- look forward to some great progresss to report on in the next update, gentlemen

    Awesome update.

    So you will be going to seven meals a day? Decreasing time between meals or adding a before bed feeding?

    right, would be 7 meals/day
    decrease in time between meals (2.5hrs roughly instead of current 3hrs), adding another meal somewhere in day and not disrupting bedtime shake - which, the shake is now slightly over 500cals and will always be my smallest "meal" of the day

    will have to happen at some point, esp once I get towards 6k cal load...just no way i'll want to be eating 1000cal+ meals, meal-in/meal-out

    little shot of dinner #2 tonight
    this looks kinda messy (well it is actually lol -- wasn't supposed to look like this) but tasty as hell
    was 1/2 Hormel wrap (pepper steak & cheese) with 4oz ground turkey breast - and on the wrap under all that meat is 1 TBS bbq sauce+dijon mustard+wasabi...2 servings tri-blend beans, salad with dressing+pineapple, and 1 serving tomato basil triscuits+1 serving spicy buffalo wheat thins



    I should have used the full Hormel wrap, but it had 10g fat in it, and I wanted to fit in a triscuit/wheat thin combo tonight, which has 9g fat in both combined - which gets me out of my allotted fat range intake zone; so, cut a wrap in half (still thought I could load it up and roll it back up, yeah right what was I thinking )...on the wrap, aside from sprucing it up with sauce mix, also added some finely chopped green pepper...and on the salad, I never been a big combine-fruit-and-salad type guy at all, but last night I threw a piece of pineapple in the salad and surprisingly it was pretty damn tasty; so, I eliminated the croutons this evening (reducing fat intake by 1g lol), and tossed both slices of pineapple I had in there -- never would have thought of this it it hadn't been for the raspberry merlot dressing I been using, something about that+pineapple combined just sounded refreshing (and, it was!)

    cals for this meal: 845, macros 120/55/16.5

    time for some food porn

    since I was up insanely early this morning (ran fasted LISS @30min upon rising, followed with fantastic breakfast), decided I wanted an addtl meal in me before I hit the weight training session, instead of just having breakfast as my preWO meal; so, had this little gem:



    6oz chunk light tuna w/ salsa, peppers
    4oz 93% ground turkey w/ 1/2 TBS bbq sauce
    .5c brown rice
    natty PB (.5 TBS) and strawberry preserve (1 TBS) sandwich on 2 slices toasted Ezekiel
    3 plain rice cakes
    895cals, 110/75/15.5



    this followed breakfast, which as mentioned was just wonderful: (no pic)
    2.5 servings steel-cut oats w/ 135g banana+.5 scoop isolate+2/3c almond milk
    5oz 96% lean beef
    1 slice toasted Ezekiel cinnamon raisin bread
    860cals, 120/65/15



    dinner here this evening:



    2 slices toasted wheat bread
    4oz ground turkey breast+2oz ham+2oz white turkey meat+red bell pepper
    covered with 1oz philly cream cheese+1 TBS bbq sauce (loving this bbq sauce, yum)
    1 serving roasted garlic parmesan potatoes
    salad+raspberry merlot dressing+2 slices pineapple
    875cals, 120/70/16


    total cals for day after (early) bedtime shake will be ~4675 -- and, we have broken the 600g carb mark fellas, barely but still..
    macros will be 605/395/75

    been having a hankering for some cream cheese (haven't had this in at least 2yrs) ever since I been eating the bbq sauce...wanted to taste the mix on one of my big meaty sandwiches -- it did not disappoint, was delish

    you can see, so long as you stay within your working cal range, and are using majority clean micros for your sources, you can actually get a lot of play and fit some semi-questionable choices in here & there occasionally

    cleared
    and, i'm having the opposite problem right now, not growing as quickly as I anticipated/want to


    so, with the above in mind, have made some small adjustments to the dietary course
    in essence, I simply have to increase the fat levels some, being so low is hindering me...idea was to stay lean and fairly dry while I grew, but too little fat in the mix is detrimental to the growth process..i am not necessarily a fan of calculating/planning my meals by macro "splits" ie ratios; rather, I just use ratios as a general guideline to loosely get an idea of how much of a given macronutrient I will want to consume based on cal load
    but now, looking at more of a traditional split to base things off of, I settled on roughly a 50/30/20 course, and the cal load gets some stability as well for a good 1/2 week to a week as we see how this plays out
    so, on off days now (which is today as I take 2 consecutive days off) cals come in ~4500, roughly 560/340/100
    on training days cals will be ~5000, roughly 625/375/110
    4-7 days on this stable plan, we will assess from there

    the obvious advantage right off the top with this bump in fats, is more flexibility (and fun for that matter lol)...it will allow me, if I continue to use lean meats, to get quite a bit more carb sources in play - like more brown rice triscuits @4.5g fat per serving, and my Popped! flavored mini rice cakes (which are roughly same construct as triscuits ie 4.5g fat/21g carbs/130cals per serving)...will also allow me, if I wish to use a fattier cut meat, to eat some ground sirloin (~2.6g fat per ounce) and not-ridiculously-lean steaks




    had this nice meal last night - under those 3 egg whites there is the other half of that Hormel wrap, along with 4oz ground turkey breast, slice of pepperjack cheese, bbq sauce mix, and diced orange bell peppers; and 2 servings beans on the side, 1 serving red bean brown rice triscuits, 2 white cheddar rice cakes, and salad/pineapple
    ~880cals, 110/70/16.5

    LOL not really worried about it my man
    I really need to replace some of my furniture anyway..not the tv or things like that, but couches/entertainment center etc, they been around forever and the couches especially have taken a beating with wear & tear from kids growing up
    in a perfect world, would just throw out these now and buy some new pieces, but I've had a sh1t-ton of expense lately and now is not the time to be spending more $ furniture, when I got stuff that still works just fine

    i'm thinking of getting rid of my cat too - i'll be traveling some here & there for days at a time, and don't want to have to worry about having someone come in & take care of cat, or boarding him somewhere..plus, fukker is shedding something fierce, I don't want all that hair floating around the new joint either
    making all kinds of lifestyle changes here, hahaa - 42 is a new snags




    speaking of new: I look like a new guy, seriously beefy and filled out this morning....had me a cheaty night last night, got cals up to ~8500 (just to play around and feel it), didn't stay the cleanest (lot of simple sugar/some fats on large portion of the extra cals), really just wanted to see how my anabolic stack would allow the excess to be sucked up, so call it an experimental foray; weight was ~206 upon rising this morning
    backing up that with ~5200 planned cals this day (already made out my menu for rest of day) as i'm staying aggressive with the steady caloric increases - but, we stay clean today and go back to strategic simple carb loads/timings, surrounding training, which was chest this day (and a pretty phenomenally strong session it was, too, wow...skipped abs, but did do 30min LISS upon waking in separate session from chest)
    will be interesting to see the fallout from these cals over the next few days, anticipating it highly

    ahahaaa...well man, these things are always relative of course
    on the overall picture, sure I agree with you, that really isn't all THAT many cals to be eating..
    comparatively speaking tho, when most around here are trying to improve bodycomp or lose weight (so gross excess caloric ingestion is not conducive to this), or when you compare the fact I just came out of bb'ing show prep and was down to ~2200-2300cals there for a minute a very short while ago --- then it DOES look like a lot of food, quite simply

    remember tho: i'm still working on getting to 6kcals, which is still ~20% more food then I am eating here...
    now THAT is getting up there, no matter how you slice it

    Still learning about my nutrition and wanted your take on Tdee. Calculating Tdee requires one to use height, weight and activity level. Should the "weight" used be total weight or weight corrected to remove fat content? Also, as lifters, what "activity level" should be used? "Moderate" activity level I think is wrong for me lifting for an hour and then sitting at a desk for 8 hours. Opinion? Snags, do you use this?

    Agree with this^^. If I stick to Tdee I respond with fat gain in the stomach area. Snags, keep or ditch Tdee?
