Will do this after my squat DL workout today.
I started keeping a logbook about 7 months ago, and I’m not sure If I should post all that here or not, as it would be very lengthy post. I’ll wait to hear from a mod about whether I should do that or not.
My current goals are to build strength. A year ago I was at approximately this weight when I tried to do a bodybuilding style cut. Either I didn’t do it correctly, or it was just a poor choice at 185, but I lost a lot of strength. Since then I’ve started doing strength training. This past summer I did Rippetoe’s starting strength, and this past fall I met up with some powerlifters, who’ve really helped me with my form on the basic lifts, and switched up my programming so that it wasn’t as much of a bear as starting strength, which allowed me to make gains, though small.
My original goal was to have a good physique, and I felt that building a strength base would get me there. While working out with powerlifters, I’ve become stronger but the physique aspect is not central.
My long term goal would be to have the best of both worlds, to have a large strong and lean physique. I know that I am very far from this goal. I’m very interested in DC training, but I have not been training (seriously) long enough to attempt it.
I try to get around 40-50 grams of protein with every meal, and I eat 6-7 times a day, usually trying to avoid carbs except pre/post work out and breakfast, and almost always after six. It usually works out 1.5 grams of protein per lb of bw for me right now, which is nice! An average day would look like this:
7:30 wakeup 1 scoop of whey protein shake mixed in water
8:30 breakfast 3 eggs 2 handfuls of baby spinach, 2 large pieces of whole wheat toast (40-60 grams of carbs)
10:30 2-3 scoops of TEAMSKIP or whey protein, 10-15 baby carrots, almonds
1:00 1 can of tuna, 1 tbsp of mayo, spinach salad. Low GI carbs if I have a workout
3:30 Workout (usually 20 grams of whey and a piece of whole wheat toast PW)
5:00 dinnertime! Usually I’ll go to the dining hall. I try to eat read meat at this point, some cooked veggies for a change, and whatever complex carbs are around.
8:00 1/2 cup of cottage cheese
10:30 1 1/2 scoop of whey or TEAMSKIP.
Also, 4-8 fishoil per day and a GNC multi.
That’s that! Diet criticism is appreciated.
