At it again, this time I'm fixing my fuck ups from my previous diet, learning the hard way I suppose but learned something none the less. Recently I'd been dieting down trying to get to 200lbs from 240lbs, lowered my calories down to stupid and F'd my metabolism up, killed my strength and didn't lose any real weight(20lbs). Now it's time to fix my metabolism and make with the growing.
Little back story January 2008 I was 300lbs of shit, dieted down to 214lbs and looked like bad so I did a mini bulk to 240lbs but F'd that up too and just got fat so I dieted back to current weight of 220lbs. Needless to say I'm a bit worried about getting fat again so the name of the game is slow and steady.
The plan doggcrapp straight from the nation article http://www.tmuscle.com/free_online_article/sports_body_training_performance/how_to_build_50_pounds_of_muscle_in_12_months
The only changes from this will be due to my limited equipment in my home gym. I'm debating a gym membership but we'll see how it goes with what I have.
The diet, targeted carbs because I'm still carrying a bit more weight than I'd like to be. I'll be having on metabolic shake or equivalent carbs 30ish minutes prior to training and one serving Surge post workout which will comprise my carbs for the day. This will evolve throughout the process and likely increase as long as I'm not gaining too much fat.
The rest of the time will be 5-6 meals a day of protein and vegetable or nuts. In an effort to do this slowly and controlled I'm starting off at my diet calories of 1800-2200 cals and slowly up them each week until I feel comfortable that I'm not gaining too much too soon.
Like I said I wrecked my strength with my last diet, even though I was lifting hard I still lost strength.
Monday was my first day and was really just feeling things out so here goes day 1 of my DC training.
warm up- 95X20-135X10
working set- 175X10
DB Military press-
working set- 45x22
Reverse grip bench
working set- 2x255x10
Yep, I'm a pussy...hopefully that will change...nah fuck that...that WILL change soon enough.
Tonight is my second night of DC, more feeling out but I do have a base to go from.
I don't really have an end goal at the moment other than to like the guy in the mirror.....
