    I completely understand where you are coming from. I suppose my comment was not implied as taking what you are doing to replicate it or anything (if I do this I will be Snags Jr lol) more so to just because I enjoy the overall picture and another facet of your training.

    In any event, I have learned a sh*t load from following this log and your previous one. So thanks Steve.

    ...and ya that plate of food looks delicious.

    cool simon - always appreciate your kind feedback, makes me feel valued or something LOL
    seriously, is always appreciated bro



    cals will be just shy of 6200 today as I stay basically static from yesterday
    6190cals, 850/440/118


    legs session today was another fantastic workout...wheels were rotated and aligned appropriately, got their beat down on
    basic in its format, anything but basic in its execution -- intensity (and strength) just thru the roof

    ATG BB squats
    5x12/10/8/8/8

    seated leg extensions, 1-legged
    4x12/10/8/8

    BB SLDL
    4x12/10/8/8

    lying leg curl, 1-legged
    5x12/10/8/8/8

    standing BB calf raises
    5x12
    *toes rotated pointing straight/in/out/in/out

    7.5min warm & cooldown on treadmill

    session took ~1hr to complete, rest periods varied, was longer on heavier BB work, shorter on lighter isolation work

    and speaking of good - so was my training session today (yet again)...been having just one sensational training day after another, bad ones seem not to exist anymore..

    was shoulders & abs this day

    6 sets abs (ab roller, weighted decline sit-ups)

    BB front press, seated
    5x12/10/8/8/8

    DB front raises
    3x12/10/10

    lateral raises
    3x10/8/8

    bent-over raises
    3x10/8/8

    DB shrugs
    3x12/10/10

    of course 7.5min warm/cooldown on tread

    on the dietary front today, am targeting 6350cals/900g carbs...we'll see how it goes, but I am on track to this point

    couple update pics, weight still hanging 211ish, gaining seems to have slowed...gotta rectify that!

    some interesting eating today...made my totals -- kind of
    hit cals, but fell a bit short in carbs; also still a tad too high on protein, fats will suffice I guess
    6375cals, 875/460/122

    will work to smooth things out, but change is constant -- tomorrow (off from training) will dip to ~6000cals, then come back THUR and hit 6500 before I continue moving up the ladder

    I do see 7k (and those 1000g carbs) in my future, very soon

    but in all seriousness, I like how you add bell peppers. They are some of my favorite veggies!

    love me some peppers man - very easy way to add nutrition to a meal, and gives me a break from making greens all the time too

    couple food pics from recently, here's part of breakfast this morning..can you say calorically dense?
    ~900cals in this bowl of cereal alone



    what's in there to make it so dense, you ask...

    1/2c steel-cut oats
    1 pck Emerald breakfast-on-the-go mix
    1 honey graham bar (organic energy bar) diced & crumbled
    1c raspberries + 1c almond milk
    touch of cinnamon to add to taste






    finally used little enough meat that I could make a fajita proper-like, rolled & tucked..
    was 5oz steak+2oz mesquite turkey breast..bowl of frosted mini wheats w/ fruit stuffing + a serving (1oz) of wheat thins for a treat & change of pace










    another too-large and overstuffed fajita, stuffed with can of white chicken breast+ham+turkey+cheese+peppe rs+bbq sauce
    also had 1/2c potatoes, couple slices of toast

    Food looks awesome.. and a breakfast of champions I dare say.

    I almost bought some canned chicken the other day when getting my albacore tuna... just can't bring myself to it. Taste/texture is good? I mean obviously to you it is or you would not eat it, but hopefully you know what i mean?

    taste is okay - more a matter of convenience than anything else
    actually taste is pretty good in those fajitas along w/ the turkey & ham, and I was just getting burned out on albacore tuna and needed a break for awhile hence the original switch over to this
    overall - I gotta say thumbs up

    three kings is right - I think I am getting close to my saturation point on the caloric ingestion aspect, but will push it a bit higher still just to be sure


    you guys thought that 900cal bowl of cereal was large? lol....I just outdid myself - can you say ~1200cal bowl of cereal?

    was:
    1/2c steel-cut oats+3 cups frosted flakes
    2 scoops Muscle Milk+1 scoop whey protein
    1/2c raspberries+1c almond milk+1c water
    1190cals/170g carbs

    that was large - and yummy

    It's not too bad, would use some every now and then when I lived in a dorm. Just kept the rice cooker going and added a can of whatever and a ton of Tabasco. Not bad, I prefer canned food to microwaveable most times.

    Canned chicken is ok. I crush it up with a fork and season it when I used it. A particular brand makes a lemon pepper type but I can't remember witch one. My favorite though.

    SAMs has these huge azz cans of premium can chicken. I like to dump whole can in bowl and pour picante over with a little cheese. It is cheap and quick.

    I am just getting triple ginormous here bro

    so I weighed myself last night, later in the evening -- was kinda shocked (hadn't weighed myself except in AM upon rising for awhile) when the scale read 218 ... upon rising today, was 213.5....large, and veiny as hell for some reason today

    great workout - esp considered my allergies have kicked up something fierce...molds & ragweed must be high all the sudden, it got pretty bad really quick .. still mauled my way thru the session, looked like this:

    pull-ups
    3x12

    bent BB rows
    6x10/10/8/8/8/6

    cable pulldowns to front
    4x10/8/8/8

    long pulley rows, D-grip
    3x10/8/8

    BB DL
    4x12/10/8/8

    obligatory 7.5min warm/cool on treadmill

    session took me just over an hour


    I did make my totals yesterday btw, 5950cals/800g carbs
    today we go to 6500cals/900g carbs as planned

    This question may seem a bit absurd, but I'll ask it anyway. I'm curious to know if you're shltting way more than normal or if you're body is just absorbing everything and your bowel movements remain consistent? Reason I ask is, you've gained A LOT of weight in the past few weeks after a pretty drastic cut. Just wondering how your body is reacting to the sudden (albeit progressive) increase in caloric intake and whether or not it's rejecting anything at the same time.

    the adaptation has ben very smooth - surprised me, really ... I think the slow(er) increases had a lot to do with that adaptation, tbh

    on the bowel movements: that is an interesting topic..you'd think i'd be sh1tting all the time, at least regular-like, right?
    such is not the case; it's been sporadic, sometimes going 2-3-even 4 days without sh1tting, then all the sudden i'll have 3-4 bowel movements in one day....rather interesting phenomenon

    I think the legs are making some fantastic progress..out to put some srs size on these guys this off-season, get them back to where they used to be pre-injuries ... they are feeling pretty healthy and strong, ROM is best it's ever been since I suffered my issues, so don't see any obstacles that will hold me back

    I'm impressed with the continued level of vascularity and definition even through the addition of 40lbs.

    yeah me too, tho that has been a goal, not much you can really do about it if you start going down the wrong path (ie wrong dietary excursions) .. has been a pleasant surprise, at this cal-load

    you're putting me out there on front street dude!
    is no-no for me to be wearing my old tee's and "other" company gear
    yeah i'm not necessarily a MM fan, but I got this couple yrs back, when I picked up a bunch of cool stuff on a discontinued/clearance deal from a local sup shop where the owner is also one of my boys; ie, HELLA insane deals
    I would never pay reg price for anything like that, no way

    is a pretty simple recipe really, guys

    1) good controlled eating; plus
    2) consistent, dedicated, and targeted training with a plan of action; plus
    3) hormonal compounds that are smartly chosen to aid goals; plus
    4) other supplements that also further those goals
    (in that order)

    that said: it's one thing to intellectually and intuitively believe you are making the right choices that will give you envisioned results; it's altogether another to have that vision realized in reality ... since this is the first time i have ever undertaken such a large project as this, i honestly can say it is gratifying to be proven correct in my calculations & assumptions




    speaking of recipes:
    this meal here is turning into a fav of mine rather rapidly, very tasty, nutritious, structured calorically well -- and keeps the taste buds entertained nicely



    fajita (this time stuffed w/ 4oz ground turkey breast+3oz mesquite turkey deli slices) + bbq sauce + peppers
    1/4c basmati rice + green beans
    3oz sweet potato fries
    natty PB & strawberry preserves sandwich on 1 slice wheat+1 slice Ezekiel toasted
    960cals, 145/60/18.5
