Hello and Welcome to my log.
I just completed a 30 lbs body-fat loss and that diet, cardio is over now. Now it is time to up my calories some what , get back into training moderately heavy again, and put on some muscle. If you have not seen my pictures of about where I am here they are Nov 13 th 2010 withdrawal, A quitter never wins and a winner never quits - Bodybuilding.com Forums
Goal: My main objective is to stay lean, close to my current body fat levels, and gain some strength. The reason why as a bodybuilding competitor I am focused on being lean year round is because I did some long and hard dieting the past few months getting 30 lbs of body fat off. I used to think it was okay to keep this much body fat on, now I know to be a competitor I have to stay lean ,not ripped, year round.
Nutrition: Currently is 225-275 P, 250-300 CHO, and 50 F = 2500-2600 calories. I may up it from here as I progress and I will reduce calories if needed if body fat is. My Plan right now is doing Chris Acteos contest rebound , not following to the exact T because I am again really making sure I stay lean.
The reason why I am not taking in as much protein as I normally do is that in Chris Aceto's rebound article it says with all the carbs/ just getting done from hard dieting not as much protein is needed as the carbs helps shuttle the protein into the muscle. After I stall with this method I'll go back to higher protein
Training: My shoulder still has some healing to do and I am doing exercises that do not bother it so i can not push real hard, especially on chest and shoulders. Basically My goal is do the best I can do while paying to strict attention to my form and anything that causes any even slight pain , avoid it.
Sleep- 8-10 hours per night on average.
Supplements" Current supplements I use regularly are
- Great pre-workout drink really got a good impression of it the first time I tried it and it helps a good bit with my pumps in the gym.
- I take this with my pre-workout meal as it may help with extra aggression. It also is a potent sexual enhancer. Ever heard of guys taking Viagra pre-workout
- This is the best of the best natural testosterone boosters I have come across indicted by the human study it has on it. This is the only testosterone booster I know that has a human study showing its effectiveness increase free testosterone by over 98 percent. I am attaching a PDF of the human study or you might can find it if you google it.
