I keep my cardio to 2 days a week when I am bulking, I only do that for blood pressure/general health reasons, not to stay lean.
    I know I've gotten into such a cardio groove, it's going to be hard to back off. I think the toughest part will be eating above maintenance calories, and keeping them CLEAN. I have no problem housing 4 - 5k calories but making sure its wholesome food and not crap will be the challenge.

    At least you know that. I have a few friends that go to the gym with me and don't understand why they can't see their abs, but they eat pizza 3 times a week. I mean, don't get me wrong, I love a good cheeseburger, but keep it to the cheat meals, and even then keep those sensible.

    It IS hard though, these days not to get caught up in eating out especially as a young person with a social life.

    Get used to eating brown rice and oatmeal... and a lot of it. Eating eventually becomes a mechanism when you get into the swing of things. I am at the end of my first real "planned" bulk. Put food in front of me and I become a machine... just put it on your plate and finish it. Cook healthy, and cook big... I try to cook a few meals at a time if I have the ability to, that way I don't have to bust out in the kitchen, my food just needs to be heated up... I think having to cook is what drives a lot of people to slouch on their diets. Eat red meat too, I don't know why, whether it is the iron or the zinc or what, but red meat makes me feel stronger and more like I am growing than white meats do. It could just be my imagination, but I swear by red meat when trying to get bigger... not as much when trying to cut down.

    I LOVE oatmeal. I've been eating the following as my preworkout meal for the past 4 month's on my cut (with the help of P-Slin):

    1 cup of Oatmeal
    1/2 cup Walnuts
    2 Tbsp Cocoa Powder
    1 Tbsp Cinnamon
    1 Tsp of Honey OR Molasses
    1 Medium Banana

    Me too dude. I eat a bowl 3 times a day. Easiest, fastest way to get your carbs in... for me at least. One of the rare healthy things you can prepare with just a microwave. Plus you can make it taste like anything you want (or nothing , like I prefer half the time) w/out adding too much unhealthy sugars/fats.

    Ah the microwave. Don't forget you can poach eggs in the microwave too. I couldn't believe it when i first saw my wife do this... I'd been skipping breakfast for so long (before I started working out) until I found you can scramble eggs in there, lol.

    Just scramble your eggs up with a half shell of water, heat for a minute, stir, heat for another 30 seconds or as long as it takes to finish (just eyeball it). if you dont take them out and stir at least once, they'll blow up on you.

  9. gmc4180, what kind of supps you took during your fat lost transformation???

    Haha, funny story about eggs. I had eaten too many one morning about 3 weeks ago I was at the gym and lost my stomach during some squats. I only made it to the trashcan... and some girl who was doing abs on the bench behind me had to make her own run for the bathroom after seeing me lose it.

    I couldn't help but laugh. Finished my workout too... I haven't seen her since. Whatever. I like my gym empty anyway, more weights no waits.

    Tell me about it... Enrollment has probably doubled since May 1st! Friday's are still my favorite day though. The gym is a ghost town for those 24 hrs. Then Saturday morning back to chaos!!

  18. Awesome, just awesome. .. your chest rounded out and everything. You definetly took some years off your looks. Good job dude

    Thanks Bobby!

  20. Here's one critique for ya, you're ****ing tall! We'd look pretty funny stood next to each other. lol
    You've done a great job man. It takes serious dedication to make a real transformation so congrats. I would smart bulk if I was you. You have some weakness that I can see so in addition to bulking I would try to also bring those weak areas up so that you don't create an even greater imbalance. A balanced physique looks awesome no matter what stage of development you're at. Give these a little extra; upper pecs, lats, posterior delts, triceps and claves. You can either do more work volume for these areas or place them at the beginning of their training days to up the intensity. Keep up the good work man!

  21. good work dude
