I haven’t written here in a while, but I get useful information everytime I write. Okay, In 5 months I’m leaving to go to boot camp, so I am reluctant to go to one of King’s, Alessi’s, or Poloquin’s intense strength or hypertrophy programs. I have also just started a Brazilian Jui Jitzu/Stick and Knife fighting/Kickboxing class held MTWT for 2.5 hours. Now according to King, I don’t want to overtrain, b/c I am also taking 14 hours of Physics, Precal, Lit., and Humanities, so I have very little time. I was originally hoping that the martial arts would be enough to strip the fat and keep muscle for me, but now I’m convinced I need to work out. It seems cycling between 2 and 3 days a week would be optimal for my recovery ability with the given stress. I can only afford to buy some ADVANCED PROTIEN, MULTIVITAMAIN/MINERAL, MRP’S, FLAX AND FISH OILS, MD-6, and SOME CREATINE. Given that I weigh 180 and am probably back at 12-15% bodyfat (Damn those holidays), I REALLY want to lose the fat, possibly gain some strength, learn theses REALLY cool martial arts classes, pass all of my classes w/ between a 3-4.0 avg., and possibly get some tail on the side, he he.
ANYWAY, I’ve got a good grasp of the t-dawg/low carb diets, and I’ve read the massive eating/bulking diets, but was gonna try folloing the “precision nutrition” article on the backfiles, where I’ll be eating high quality carbs and protiens. Given that I’ll only be able to workout on MWF mornings (alternating b/w 2-3 times/week every 3 weeks), do you guys have any suggestions for splits and maybe excersize selection that I could use? Like I said earlier, as soon as I leave for bootcamp, I’m not gonna be able to do what I want as far as gaining muscle for about 5-10 months, so I don’t want to start those “Twelve weeks of pain” programs until time permits. Also, do you guys have any suggestions for literature on dieting?
