Been at it for 2 weeks and wanna start a log. First and foremost Im a beginner but like 5/3/1 over the other programs as it gives alot of form practice which I love. I do BBB and am making huge gains already to my physique and physical strength. I just feel awesome going through my day whereas before I started I felt like crap alot.
I was the guy who always did cardio before and never lifted. I am 5’11 and about 163 lbs. I am skinny fat tho but I am not letting that stop me from bulking and getting strong. I dont want to be “functional”, have “abs” or anything else. I have two goals in life, get big and strong and become a college professor one day. Both are equally important and easily doable along side each other. An hour in the gym 5 days a week, sometimes 6, is not hard. I follow the basic 5/3/1 templates but have found that adding an extra squat day has HELPED not hurt my progress. Perhaps this will change.
My diet is the following:
Morning - 6 eggs and 2 apples
PWO - 60g whey and 50g oatmeal(sometimes I have a cookie/chocolate here too only PWO)
Another meal of 2 ounces of nut and 20 ounces chicken breast and veggies
Another meal of a pound of chicken thighs and some veggies
Comes out to anywhere from 22-2500 cals and 280ish protein. I am serious about getting bigger and stronger and everyone on here who has done it eats 2g of protein per BW. Im almost there and once i get rid of these chicken thighs and go back to turkey/chicken only I will be at 320.
Anyway training is 5/3/1 as stated. Will post progress on lifts and workouts most days. Regards to all
