First off I’ll tell you a bit about what I’m doing now. I’m training for size and strength. I train mixed martial arts and brazillian jiu-jitsu @ american top team in port st. lucie. I currently weight about 166 pounds (up 10 pounds in about two weeks it seems like) I’ve been told that I should bulk up.
I’m about 5’10 or so, give or take an inch. I’ve been going to the gym for about 3 or 4 months now and recently have been missing days. I just managed to get in a full 3 day week and plan on continuing this routine. I do Bill Starr’s 5x5 routine that I got form elitefitness.com.
My 3 rep PR’s on friday were, squat 155, bench 145, bent row 125, deadlifts 165. (I feel like I can do much more then that on my DL, and I do DL’s on wed. not fri.) I’ve been trying to eat around 3k in calories per day. I try to eat more on lifting days and less on off days. I want to do HIIT on tue. and thurs. as well.
I plan on taking creatine daily as well. I’ve added a lot of fat to my belly in the last two weeks!
Does this seem like a solid bulking plan?
How much weight should I add if I want to be around a solid muscular 170-180 pounds. (remember I want to do a mixed martial arts fight eventually)
Also I seem to be adding weight fairly easy with what I’ve been doing lately. (unclean bulking) and beer drinking!
Is there anything that I am doing wrong besides the obvious unclean bulking and drinking?
Anything else you guys reccomend I start doing? For example if I wanted to record this in a journal, what would be the most important things I log/track?
Thanks for any help, it will be put to good use! I’ll post some low quality cell phone pics if necessary. They really are crappy though. thanks again!
