Critique my new diet/training program.


#1

Long time reader making my first post. I'm 16, currently recovering from a tonselectomy, and in my 2 weeks off ive re-designed my diet (according to massive eating) and training.

Check it out at http://www.exelarm.com/diet.htm, and feel free to critique!

Hey all...here's the guy's program from the link. I thought he'd get more responses if it were easily visible.


HERE IT IS:

I went ahead and calculated my calorie requirements according to T-Mags MASSIVE EATING and came up with the following figures:

Weight: 75kg
Fat Mass: 10% of Weight = 7.5kg
Fat Free Mass: Weight - Fat Mass = 67.5kg
Resting Metabolic Rate Formula: 22 x FFM + 500 = 1985
Cost of Activity = RMR x Activity Factor (1.6) = 1985 x 1.6 = 3180
Cost of Exercise Activity (Weights) = Body Mass (75kg) x Duration (1) x MET value (6) = 450
Cost of Exercise Activity (Bike) = 75 x .5 x 3 = 115
Thermic Affect of Food: RMR x 0.10 = 200
Total Calories Needed: Activity + Weights + Cardio + Thermic = 3180 + 450 + 115 + 200 = 3945

Below is my brand new bulking diet which I will begin next week after I've fully recovered from a recent tonsilectomy. I posted it for a critique on abcbodybuilding.com, and after exhausting all their advice, thought I would post it here in case you guys have any comments or improvements I could make.

According to the "staggered" approach, this amount of calories will give me an excess of 115 4 days a week which are cardio free and an extra 450 calories on my rest day, a total of 910 calories surplus a week.

Feel free to critique! Also, below the diet is also my new workout which will go along with my new bulk, you may awell critique that too. I probably should mention my current stats aswell. ATM they are:

16 years and 9 months old, 5 foot 11 inches, 75kg
bench: 70kg x 6
squat: 90kg x 6 (slightly below parallel)
dead: 80kg x 8

goals: bulk, BULK, B U L K!

thanks guys!
