I’m finally starting out on Monday. I’m 170lbs now, 6ft, semi-lean.
I want to gain as much muscle as possible w/ minimal fat gain for the next 2.5 months…
Then I want to cut down to 5% bodyfat, no matter what weight i’m at.
Once I get to 5%, I just want to maintain until late fall, trying to gain muscle keep bodyfat the same… Then i’ll go on more of a real bulk.
What type of diets would be best for each phase? I’m a complete beginner, 17, 170lbs. I’d like to get to around 180-185lbs before I cut but that might noy be possible–gotta be optimistic though =)
Training for each phase? For the bulk, just intense, lifting 4 days week? For the cut what should I do? And maintanence?
What other advice would you give me? What foods should I avoid? Only supplement i’m taking now is whey and a multivitamin. Is meal timing important or is it just overall calories? My school has pretty crappy lunch, I might just start skipping it.
