I already take Zinc and Mg, so until I run out I probably won't get any ZMA. Thanks though.
Right now I have a mega-shake PWO with about 17-34 grams of whey protein, some cottage cheese or ricotta cheese (IIRC it doesn't slows down the absorption of whey), milk, greens mix (Udo's), a lot of fish oil that provides about 3:2 EPA:DHA, a banana, creatine, glutamine, flax seed(2tbsp), and yogurt (not a ton of yogurt though).
I have the same thing before bed minus the greens and creatine/glutamine, and more cottage cheese. I get about 70-80 grams of protein each time, and 800-1000 calories.
I'm going for over 4000 calories a day, preferably about 4500. My metabolism is WICKED fast.
I've been lifting seriously for a few months (5-6) but I knew plenty about form and exercises before that. Lifted some in HS, now I'm 19 and a sophmore in college.
I'm doing ABBH. I am 6' 175, BF about 8%, deadlift about 300, not sure of max squat right now and bench max 200.
I want to bulk to about 195-200 with about 6-7% BF as a finished product, so I expect to get to about 210 before I need to cut.
When I get to 185ish I'm going to do what CW recommends for "an equal product of strength and mass" and when I hit 200ish I will slooooowly pack on quality muscle with the emphasis mostly on strength.
I'm basically a recreational lifter, I enjoy lifting and I like the idea of being strong. I do interval work and enjoy aerobic stuff like running and cycling, and am doing some GPP.
I don't think I need the Alpha Male at all. I'm going to try a 12-week cycle of Carbolin 19, and as someone in the thread recommended I will soon buy a bottle of Surge to try it out. Can you mix 1 scoop with 1 scoop of whey protein? That would be good for my wallet
Thanks for the help, and any advice based on my stats is greatly appreciated!
