I am loving the posts on here, so much damn info it’s almost overwhelming. Anyway here’s a question for those interested in putting their two cents.
I am 23, 6’2" and 256lbs at about 20%bf (I would like to get down to around 10%). For once in my life I would like to see my abs. I know that’s totally retarded sounding in a “Mens Health” kinda way. But I have been a chubby kid with asthma my whole life regardless of diet and workout routine.
This all changed when this site motivated to me to stop being a lazy low T girly man.
I have been weight training (I also box in the super heavy weight division :201+ lbs: in local exhibitions) for a good year now and slowly but surely I am seeing changes in my composition. I have learned an ENORMOUS amount from t-mag. SO with the knowledge I have obtained from this wonderful site, this is my plan. Please critique at will. Keep in mind I am also a landscaper so I am very active everyday.
First 8 weeks.
The BEAR 3x week for 2 weeks (transitional time between programs)
50% RM Load (I want concentrate totally on bar speed and total deep squats to build speed)
During This time I will also supp the routine with pullups, deads and dips.
My cardio During this time will be sparring once a week and boxing workouts once or twice a week with my trainer. Also working outside, leaf season is coming…ick.
At this point I should know wether or not I will be entering the Golden Gloves Tournament, if I am I will go back to Meltdown 1 and eventually to 2. If not I will embark on CT’s OVT program or something in the big three nature and look like the damn Hulk at the programs end.
During this time I will be using Hot Rox at 4 caps a day (first 8 weeks) and ZMA at night. I have also placed an order for four bottles of the new MAG10. I plan to single dose during the meltdown phase and If I do embark on the OVT program I will double dose on and off for two to three weeks at a time for the duration of the program.
And almost forgot the most Important part. DIET. I will be folowing the zone diet which is basically 40% carbs-30%protein-30%fat (I need the carbs!).
The meals will be brought to my house everyday by zone gourmet for the next 12 weeks. I usually get a good 6 meals and a couple of snacks such as a balance bar or a protein muffin. I discussed my activity level with the nutritionist and my protein intake has been adjusted accordingly (I still have my post worksout shake regardless of what they give me). So if you feel inclined to give me your opinion I’d appreciate it or if you feel the need to flame thats just as good.
I think this the longest damn post ever. but thank you if you read the whole thing.
