    First off gotta thank Jiggmanbill for helping me out with the Recoverpro and Celorza for hosting a great first promo in which I picked up TTA-500.

    Normally I don't take BCAA's because I think it's fancy kool-aid but I was recommended it quite frequently in my discussions on Intermittent fasting, I have tried other blends such as Recon and Amino Energy but they aren't what I am looking for. Recon has a bunch of filler and carbs that I simple do not want for fasting reasons, and I didn't really want to add extra caffeine with Amino Energy. I received a couple samples of RecoverPro and I really liked the lemon flavor, mixed smoothly and tasted like..well a lemon (a refreshing lemon at that). I was going over the samples of what I liked or didn't like with Jiggamanbill and I brought up the fact that I wanted to try BCAA's with my IF bulk. Low and behold I am now the proud owner of my very own tub.


    Diet
    Trying to keep this clean and lean. I did a dirty bulk once and I am still battling some of that extra poundage lol, don't wanna go that route.
    three-five hundred over maintanence which will put me around 3000-3200 per day.
    Proteins are going to be mainly eggs, chicken, tuna and ground beef. Oh and milk.
    Carbs brown rice is one of my favorite carbs, I have a little rice cooker that I have mastered. Breads and pasta are a staple of my diet as well. CAN'T FORGET THE VEGETATION! Gonna be eating my veggies as well, gotta get those vitamins in.
    Fats coming from peanut butter (the real stuff), heard to try coconut oil and EVOO. I normally use spray for my cooking as it doesn't add any macros but I like to drizzle EVOO in from time to time.


    Routine
    Right now I am on a 5 day split of the typical
    Monday Chest
    Tuesday Back
    and so on.

    Since I was doing a slight leaning phase my goal was to keep my weights the same and maintain mass, now that I am going into a caloric surplus I am going to either 1. Focus on more volume or 2. Train each group at a higher frequency.
    I was thinking about trying a 3 day split. Normally hit the gym after class around 1-3 pm and start feasting immediately afterwards until I have to work.

    If you have any suggestions I am all ears!


    Supplementation

    I will be using.
    A preworkout (ConDense or Ignite 2)
    BCAA's (Lemon RecoverPro)
    TTA-500
    GHenerate
    No Whey Pumpkin Pie, protein for me is seasonal why not choose a flavor to match
    and other random items I might just throw in for a day or so.
    again suggestions?

    I kind of have stages outlined for my bulk and this is the first one. Gauging myself to see what I need to add.


    Anyway, can't wait to get my second log rolling! <3

    Good luck, I didn't have much luck with IF.


    I think working out fasted, then refeeding is the ticket, my work schedule just didn't allow it.

    I liked it for leaning but more importantly it just fits my schedule better. If I don't like it I am busting out the cooler and carrying around 3 meals and 2 shakes all day again. lol :P

    If I was still on my 3pm-130am work schedule, it would have been ideal.

    I can easily pound down 4000+ calories in under 8 hours, with over 250g protein, even eating mostly clean foods. And I enjoy that way more than graze all day

    bcaa's help a ton even with 300-350 plus protein grams a day. Timiung is important with them like pre intra or post workout and I like them in between my meals, when I arise in the morning and when I wake up during sleep

    as far as your diet it looks like a lot of calories for 190 lbs. how active are you throughout the day?

    I am very good at nutrition so if you need any pointers here feel free

    This would be mainly waking up, after class/20-30 minutes before gym and at night before bed.

    Really? I figure 3k was around general, I am not too active normal walking back and forth and job requires standing and walking, some times carrying stuff or unloading a truck.

    Thanks man!
