Xtatic's Back into it Log!!!
after being away from the gym for about a month or so i started today once again. im right now 5'10'' 150lbs. my goal is to gain as much weight as i can. somewhere around 15-20 pounds would be nice in 8 weeks. Im going to track EVERYTHING. from workouts to diet. im going to be hopefully eating 5000+ calories a day clean.
lets get to it. this was my first workout back today

Weight: 150.2 lbs.

now that's a workout
one bit of advice, do deads first. and there's no need to exceed 5 reps with them at any point. JMO.
09-28-2006, 08:33 AM
If your diet break down is pretty much accurate and you keep your workouts like that you'll be seeing very nice results in no time. I'd say right at 6 weeks expect for people to start noticing. Nice work man!
09-28-2006, 10:36 AM
Workouts look good. Im sure your strenght will be back in no time and the weight should come easily by the way ur eating.
09-28-2006, 03:27 PM
im here to learn so whatever advice just keep sending it. as far as the deads go do them first and say 3 sets of 5 reps each???Originally Posted by Beelzebub
also i carry a journal with me at ALL times and write down EVERYTHING i eat. and i prepare about 3 meals for me to eat while at work. so far my body is going through its adjustment to eating so many calories so ive been feeling a little off but nothing major.
i track everything on fitday.com is there a way i can like copy that and post it here or send a link so someone can check it out themselves?
09-29-2006, 11:21 AM
you can probably cut and paste it, no?
as for the deads, multiple sets of 5. all depends on how heavy you go. right now 3 sets is fine, but later on, more will be required. gotta figure the more weight you use, the more warmups you'll need to build up to it. as an example: my last set on deads is in the 600's and it takes about 6 sets to build up to it. whatever your last weight is now, do 2 sets of 5 with it and bump up by 10lbs each week. keep moving up and when the 2nd set drops to 4 reps, post it up and i can judge accordingly.

Day 6 missed 2 days cause of schedule
my diet so far (its 11pm i get out of work at midnight and heading to gym straight after then some sleep) is 4439 182 392 312
lately ive been having trouble reaching the 5000 mark. any advice on foods to eat that will give me more calories? the chicken and turkey and fish that im eating is high in protein and not a lot of carbs.
as far as workout is going today i will do Triceps/Biceps and legs to make up for the days i missed
will post up exact info later. as far as leg goes i will do squat and press.

150lb taking in 4000kcal+ ? Are you a hard gainer? If you are then your goal is completely unrealistic...
About healthy high calorie foods, buy some nuts. Cashew being my favourite.
10-02-2006, 09:46 AM
by hard gainer do you mean hard to gain weight? lol if so then yes i am.Originally Posted by Ziricote
im going to have to get me some natty pb. im eating a lot of almonds unsalted and peanuts as far as nuts go.
yesterday went like this
45* skull crushers
Cable pulldown with pause
Seated Overhead Dumbbell Ext.
Olympic Barbell Curls
Hammer Dumbbell Curls
Dumbbell Preacher Curls
I was reading on the HST work out and thought id give it a shot. only doing 6 reps on 3 sets....

It's not hard to go over 4000kcal imo, it's just hard to get over it without getting bloated which I really hate.Originally Posted by Rivet
10-02-2006, 07:31 PM
At 150 I doubt Icould go that high with clean cals. Now yea I can, but as you say I hate the bloat. I cant stand it...Originally Posted by Ziricote

so far so good though. ill have my last two days posting up later when i get home. ive gaines 5 pounds so far. now trying to keep it going.
10-04-2006, 01:13 PM
Five pounds are great gains! How do your workouts feel? When I started eating to gain I got big strength gains.

Best time to weigh yourself is in the morning after your system is....Hmm emptyOriginally Posted by xtatic
10-05-2006, 12:40 PM
Yep!Originally Posted by Rivet
Btw what tempo do you lift with?
e.g. Slow eccentrics, fast concentric (3 seconds down, 1 second up)
10-05-2006, 07:00 PM
slow everything i guess you could say 2 sec down and 2 up? i dont know dont really time myself just make sure i do the excersize right.Originally Posted by Ziricote
the reason i weigh myself then is cause that weight is accurate. the one i have here at home is give or take 10 pounds
