Here is my story:
I used to (up until nov 2008) play college football. I was an undersized Offensive Lineman (6’2, around 260-265lbs) and I got hurt pretty bad. A nagging shoulder injury turned surgery and a torn meniscus in the knee later, I have decided to give up football and turn to training for fun and to look good.
Sunday I weighed 260.0 lbs on our school scale. The sad part is that I have put on 23 pounds since my freshman year. And it wasn’t all muscle I’ll tell you.
Now that I don’t have the fear of being too small in my head from football, the focus has turned to getting leaned out, and then getting back to building 20 inch arms!
I am going to give Dr. Berardi’s Get Shredded diet a run for its money for the next 6 weeks. ( http://www.T-Nation.com/free_online_article/sports_body_training_performance_diet_mass/the_get_shredded_diet )
Diet will be roughly
~50g healthy fats
~20 g carbs
every meal, 4x day. This will give me 2920 calories, essentially my BMR.
10x fish oil capsules (3 at every meal plus 1 before bed)
20g creatine (5g between every meal)
1 scoop Greens+ (Daily, before breakfast)
Training Wise I will be following Destroying Fat
War Room Strategies to Maximize Fat Loss
by Christian Thibaudeau
4 workout sessions a week, mixing up 2 heavy lifting days (one with post-workout sprints) and 2 circuit training days with sustained cardio (20-30 min sessions)
Thoughts on training, how I am feeling and general updates will come at least 3+ times per week, most likely more.
Wish me luck ladies and gentlemen. Here goes everything.
