Hello everyone! I have been a regular reader of these forums now for a good while and am looking for some help. Im an 18 year old senior in high school(i would say fully matured, havent grown in 4 years) and have been lifting weights on and off the past three years. I have been going at it seriously the past 6 months or so.
I know the first thing everyone seems to want to know is the specifics so I'm 5'9" 195 lbs. I believe somewhere in that 23% body fat range. I measure 38" at the naval, 42" at the chest, 24" at the thigh, 13" at the bicep.
My current Workout schedule is
Mon: Upper Body (Bench, Incline, Curls etc..) Cardio
Tue: Lower Body (Squat, Deadlift) Cardio
Thurs: Upper Body Cardio
Fri: Lower Body Cardio
(Bench Max: 200 needs a lot of work, squat max 375, just starting on deadlift so not sure)
My overall goal is to continue to gain muscle while dropping 15-20 lbs.
I know about many of your views on BSN, but i ran across a blowout and was able to get some stuff cheap. My current supps are:
I have been struggling with the weight loss part to date. I know the biggest limiting factor right now is my diet. I think my Caloric Intake is around the 2500-3000 range right now. But as of the last week i have been watching what i eat and have been draining myself on the cardio.(Nitrix has been improving running endurance) I rarely eat fast food, i dont drink pop or carbonated beverages. (NO is the most caffeine ive had in years)
Current Schedule is:
7:30 Wake up and take Nitrix and NO Explode
9-10:30 Lift and Run
11 Take Nitrix, Cellmass, and L-Carnitine
12 Eat (Salad with Chicken breast, two servings of fruit, milk and protein shake)
5 Cellmass and Nitrix
6 Supper (Protien shake and high protien low carb supper)
Like i previously said i have been making some gains in the weightroom. I have come miles since i started 6 months aggo in overall strength and feeling. I still have a visible gut though and really want to drop it. I have tons of questions and could probably throw them into 4 different forums but i figured i would start here.
Any diet suggestions?
I have been looking at recreate for weightloss but am worried about the hormone side of things that go along with it, any suggestions?
What can i do differently to increase weightloss?
What would be a good supp list for next time? (RPM, Leviathen, Neovar?)
Sorry for writing a book but any help would be much appreciated!
