Today I stumbled accross this program by Dan John which really appealed to me:
I like it because of it’s simplicity and because it encorporates 3 full body work-outs instead of splits. I am not necessarily a beginner (I have been training for a bit more than 7 months), so I am not a complete noob in regard to the exercises.
I am however a complete noob in regard to dieting. I have read up on nutrition and tend to keep it easy for myself by focusing on macros and eating enough veggies and fruits to stay healthy.
The program talks about eating a lot to gain mass, but would you reckon it is really about heavy bulking/cutting? I am unsure whether bulking/cutting works for me, I’m more the type of guy that sticks with one “diet”, makes it his habit and continues that endlessly. Hence, I’m curious if I should pursue this kind of mass building program and simply eating a bit more, which could yield sub-optimal results.
I do realize that since I’m still quite new to lifting the program will probably work regardless of my diet (as long as I hit my macro’s), but I’m keen to hear some more experience thoughts on it.
Just some stats to give you guys a view of who I am:
Height: 1.88m (6’ 2")
Weight: 83 kg (183 lbs)
Diet: Hit macro’s, eat above maintenance + enough fruits and veggies
Work out: 3x/week
Lifestyle: Sedentary except for biking to work (~30 min)
I hope you guys could give me some advice regarding this program and the diet that suits it!
Thanks in advance and I look forward to your replies!
