This is going to be, "My Plan Of Action" for the next year!
I'm currently on my final week of the V-Diet, and my extended transition period ends on the 17th of May. And I'll be eating at maintenance for 1 week till the 25th of May.
I'm basically going to be continuing with fat loss from the 25th of May till the 12th of July;
I'll be following CT's Regressive Ketogenic Cycle, and probably running 2-3 back to back cyles, with 1 week break in between each one before moving on to my mass gain phase. CT says that a person can loose 4-5% on each cycle, I'd be happy with between 3-4% on each one.
1st Cycle: 15th June - 12th July
2nd Cycle: 20th July - 16th Aug
I'm weak, very weak, and one thing I've always wanted to do is get the numbers up on all of the main lifts. That's my first reason for doing Starting Strength, the second reason, the more strength I have, the more muscle I'll be able to build with my later mass gain programs.
I'll be following a Carb Cycling approach on this phase. I'll be eating moderate carbs on training days and low carbs on all other days, with 2 cardio days a week on the low days.
HSS 100 Chest Specialisation - 4 Weeks
This one is kinda obvious. I'm doing this to add mass to my chest. I like these programs and chose them over the others because they focus on one muscle group at a time and have 2-3 specialist days, one working on width and the other working on thickness.
I'll be using a Carb Cycling approach in these programs, meaning Carbs at breakfast around workout, PWO shake and PWO meal only. On the specialisation days, this will be Surge Workout Fuel Pre and Peri Workout and Hydrolysed Whey + Vitargo PWO.
On non specialist days, I'll only be using Hydrolysed Whey + Vitargo Peri-WO and PWO.
HSS 100 Back Specialisation - 4 weeks
Again, obvious to why I'm doing this, to add mass to my back, but the other reason is to make sure I have a balance between the anterior and prosterior of my body, which is why this will be done directly after the chest specialisation.
HSS 100 Shoulder Specialisation - 4 weeks + Get A Great Ass - 6 Weeks
Building big cannonball shoulders! I haven't been blessed with great shoulder width or development so this will be a great way to increase the perception of a V shaped frame.
Big shoulders also look fucking great! Plus girls love guys with Great Glutes!
Maintenance - 2 Weeks
I'll be doing 3 day a week TBT training as de-conditioning, just to allow the muscles to relax a bit, so they can have a chance to rebound and grow before I move on to the next training program
Maintenance Low Carbs diet. Carbs (Oatmeal/fruit only) at breakfast and PWO only. Protein with all meals of course. And P+F meals the rest of the time.
Super Hero Training + Awesome Abbs - 12 weeks
This program is all about looking good. It specifically focuses on the muscles that make you look good, the "beach muscles".
If you guys haven't seen where this program spawned from, it originally came from here;
This again should come as no surprise, I'm not an aspiring pro BBer or PLer, all I want is an awesome physique, and to me that means awesome abdominals along with the other muscle groups mentioned above.
Carb Cycling again, but I don't think I'll need as much calories on the awesome abbs days, so I'll be treating those as low days, but by the time I start this program, my BMR may have gone up quiet a bit due to the increased muscle mass from the previous 3 programs.
Maintenance - 1 Week
So that's my plan for the next year, although I will allow for some flexibility if needed.
All of the training programs are well thought out and have yielded great results for other T-Members that have used them in the past.
I know there'll be a lot of support from members, and a lot of people that'll read all of this and probably give me shit.
