Good day fellow T members,
The name is Adam,
I'm showing the results of my training and diet and routine since 1-20-09. I started on the Velocity Diet (Thanks Chris!) Early January. I have continued to follow Chad Waterbury's Training regiment that goes along with the diet at the same time. (Thanks Chad!)
I have continued to follow Waterbury's training program for the last 5 months..My diet is very clean, it consists of Metabolic Drive for 4 meals per day, I have lots of eggs, red meats, and vegis..not too big on fruits but I get them in when possible. I tried the Anabolic Diet and I did not have what it takes to stick with it...it wasn't that I disliked the food options, it was that I couldn't keep track of it and follow it the way I needed to. So I changed to a High protein moderate fat diet with about 30-40 grams carbs daily (Not including the vegis/fruits.)
I lost 40-50 lbs in the past 4 1/2 months and put on some significant lean mass. I'm not here to ask if I could be in a show or anything of the sort, mainly to show the results I earned from following the program.
I don't max my lifts so Im not posting numbers on max lifts...but I will post some weight that I push in the program I'm following. I did max for 3 reps on bench last week but I have no idea how to get the vid off my blak berry and onto the PC to show it...so your not getting the numbers until I can post the video.
Front Squat- 4x6 225lbs, full ROM
Close grip bench- 4x6 275lbs full extension, pause at bottom 2" off chest.
Push Press- 4x6 175lbs
Chin up- 4x6 no assist all boy weight.
Romanian dead lift- 4x10 245 no wraps...I just got Lynx performance grips so should help with the grip failure I keep having.
Straight bar curl- 4x10 95lbs
Bent over barbell row underhand grip- 4x5 265lbs
Dips- 4x5 90lbs on weighted dip belt. Full ROM.
I also do a ton of static plank exercises in a unstable environment, using a TSX suspension trainer.
All the lifts that I posted ARE NOT done for max....many of these are done back to back with little rest between sets, 30-45sec rest time.
I think that I have posted everything needed to make this a successful post. If you need any more stats/pics/ info let me know and I will get them on here asap.
I will post some max video lifts this week. Going to hit it hard tomorrow after a good 2 days of rest.
Shoe size is 13...pics to come haha
