    Your doing the 5/3/1 for your bulking phase? Awesome. People think these "lower rep" programs are for powerlifters / strength athletes only, 5/3/1 is great for hypertrophy, just remember to squeeze your glutes and drive through the heels through the entire rep on squats, no bouncing the bar with excess momentum with deadlifts! What grip do you usually use with your bench press / military press movements?

    For dead lift I go for regular or hook grip if too heavy, shoulder with. I like to avoid the over-under I don't wanna tear my biceps!! For the military I use snatch grip sometimes but mostly for military and bench I use medium grip

  6. Ok people...progress so far 1 week in:

    -Started at 127.6 and Now I sit at a hefty 133.6 weighted NAKED this morning upon rising. That's 6lbs.
    -Max on the lifts remains the same but the strength is UP , I managed some sorta PR on my dips , also endurance is up quite a bit and I can squeeze in extra reps of my max's of the 5/3/1 days it seems.
    -Motivation: Solid
    -Mood: UP
    -Cuts: kinda still there, bloated out some of them...

    So as for the weight...I am gonna tapper down a bit of kCals since I dont wanna gain THAT fast , and the thing is , carbs seem to be NOT my thing. So instead of my BMR being set at 2400 I'm putting it down to 2200 since I only get out of the house for 1 or 2 errands and to do my workouts. So kCals for wokout day will be 2640 and for rest day they will be 1800, I will move around the Macros just a bit for the satisfation of less carbs and evaluate this week how things go.

    Macros: 180-200g prot/ 40g fat / 300-350 carbs workout days. 180-200g prot/ 85 g fat / 50-60g carbs. (Not gonna count trace carbs like veggies)

    Thoughts on this? I think we can say my diet was a bit overshot :S since ITS IMPOSSIBLE to even gain this much weight, even on a juicing cycle, and it being or containing lean body mass, this looks to me like mainly bloat and fat :S I'll post progress pics later today so you guys can help me figure out if its all bloat or if I am putting on at least 1/2 lb of LBM per week :'3 which I certainly hope so...its my first time bulking and going really heavy on it!!

    (On a side note...I'm tempted to leave diet as it is and cardio as it is...I like the foods...And I can shed out fat fast , would this be smart too? Is this diet helping my goal , or being counterproductive oO?)

  8. Great job bro!!! 6lbs in a week...that's good...if you think it's mostly bloat and fat you should up your cardio but keep eating more...try doing HIIT cardio for 20mins and 20 to 30mins walking and regular cardio...I heard HIIT cardio boost your metabolism....great work bro...keep it up!!!

  9. Probably several pounds of your gains have been water. I would think this because you used to follow a low carb diet before this, and you also say you feel bloated and jiggly like you've gained fat. The increased carbs is something that will cause your body to hold more water than your used to, especially since you were a low carb guy before. So, don't feel like you've gained a bunch of fat. I'd say a few pounds is water from the increased carbs. Bulking is a bit uncomfortable, but you'll be glad that you stuck it out and held your course in the long run. This would be my explanation of your feeling bloated and like you've gained fat.

    My advice: keep eating how you were. Don't try to tinker the diet. Weight gain will probably slow down a bit now that you've sucked up some water. It won't get much more uncomfortable. Keep up your hard work!

    Thanks man! I think I'll do HIIT twice a week and regular low intensity twice a week too.

  16. Ok so nutrition is still high for now, and delicious might I add? Meal one was:

    -1 banana
    -1 cup of oats
    -2 whole eggs
    -1 cup egg whites
    Now with theese I mixed the eggs with the oatmeal and made a sort of pancake , then I used the banana as a topping...Dear lord, delicious!! I missed bananas all through my cut!!
    Accompanied by:
    -1/2 cup lean beef broiled with purple onions squash and mushrooms, no salt or fat added , beef was 97/3% fat
    -4 slices of Oatnut Orowheat bread.
    -1 baked sweet potato no fat or salt added.
    This past made 2 bad ass kick ass sandwiches!! delicious!! I used the sweet potato orange interior for the bread and then topped it with the meat/veggies and covered! MUNCH!! , I'm so ashamed at the way I ate today hahahaha I even ate the crust of the sweet potatoes!! :$ I was SO HUNGRY!!
    Macros:1,441kCals 197g carbs 29g fat 96g protein.
    As a snack I had a while ago:
    -1 sweet potato
    -1 cup cottage cheese (fat free)
    -Same 1/2 cup ground beef.
    Macros: 413 kCals , 36g carbs 5g fat 51g prot

    I just dosed my glycobol and in around 30 mins I'll have my last meal for my last 900 kCals with like 150g carbs, 60g prot and like 10g fat.

    I guess I'll just keep the nutrients at top and simply increase the number of cardio sessions AND the number of kCals burnt in the cardio sessions.
    Also, this happened to me yesterday and today too, after my second meal I just feel...drowzy like i needed a nap and went ahead and did , for the life of me this naps bring me back to life , but I have never been a nap person...is this normal?? Because of the stack?

  19. I've felt my body needing more rest in times that I've been pushing it pretty hard. I know this sounds like a "duh" answer... But it's more than that. My dreams are more vivid and I sleep better at night in addition to being able to sleep during the day time, which I couldn't do otherwise. I wonder if this has anything to do with the increases of IGF-1 and the corresponding effects on muscle building? Could be a good sign, it is for me, at least.

    Perhaps I'm way over thinking it, but from listening to my body this has been my experience.

    For chest and shoulders I had some help from IFBB Pro Ben Pakulski explain how to activate your chest / delts during bench presses / military presses, pretty much using a wide grip, keep shoulders down and depressed, drive hands in together on the negative but obviously don't let your hands move. And for dumbbells always keep the dumbbells well outside of shoulder width, you will have to go lighter when doing this, but longterm you will get more bang for your buck.

    Hope this helps and puts you into beast mode even more
