My first contest is 15 weeks away ~~~ (June 15 ~ Carolina Supernatural).
I started my cut at 220, and I am down to 207. Target is 190-192 (Open light heavyweight classification). I’m also considering the Masters 40-50 division
Here’s my diet as it stands right now.
2 scoops of protein powder
1 boiled egg
280g of Grilled Chicken & 28g of grits (hey it’s the south)
Greek Yogurt & 2-tbs of p-nut butter
5 boiled eggs & 28g of grits (2 times a week I’ll replace the eggs with tuna)
2 scoops (56g) of protein powder.
~ My routine has me lifting
Monday (chest, tri, sho),
Saturday (Back, bi, sho, abs)
Sunday (legs, delts, cardio)
I’m coming off a shoulder strain, and do therapy on it nearly daily.
I workout between meal 5 and 6.
Drinking only water.
Still eating whatever I want on Sundays ~ (without going crazy).
Monday seems to be the day to know where the facilities are ~ lol. I started weighing myself on Tuesday as a result.
I thought I’d start my post with the key on my diet, as I have moments where I’m hungry (especially between meals 3 & 4) ~ and sometimes I break the diet at that point.
I also wonder if I’m not getting enough carbs.
Attached pic was taken about a week ago. Sorry it is not a series of mandatories. My wife is not a fan of the BB scene, and isn’t keen on taking pictures of me (that I will then post on the internet) ~~~ lol I seriously doubt I’ll ever convince her to take a picture of me posing. Heck, for that matter, I’d be surprised if she even comes to the contest. No worries, she’s an awesome woman. I’m blessed to have her.
Relative to me and me only (and not comparing myself to anyone else), I thing my lats are a strength. Legs okay, calves better.
Weaknesses: shoulders, hamstrings, chest, biceps.
