Looks pretty solid. What’s your height, weight, and bodyfat percentage? Also (and not that we necessarily need to know this, but it would be helpful), but how does this plan compare with your previous plan? In other words, without having a basis of comparison, it’s difficult to gauge whether your approach will be adequate. You should have increased your daily caloric intake by approximately 500 calories.
Another difficulty lies in not knowing how many calories, or in what macro breakdown, you were taking in previously. Keep an eye on the scale. If you’re gaining more than 1.5 or 2 lbs per week, consider additional cardio before your first meal or post-workout, or fewer carbs in meals 5 and 6.
Finally, take progress photos every week or every other week. I realize this isn’t a diet-related suggestion, but taking photos will allow you to assess whether the weight gain is quality or not. Hope this helps.[/quote]
just gettin ready to do my first comp so this is what i’m gonna start up on after, from 2300 cals to 3600 plus some until i start noticing a more fat gain than wanted…would like to stay 12 percent or less all year. I’m competeing in the light weight division (almost 5’8"… i’ll be walking on about 145 started dieting at 165ish 12 weeks ago. I know i will probably get shit for being so light and competeting, but i wanted to get to know the process of everything and if it’s really something that i would like to pursue for years to come, rather than waste years of “mass building” and then walk on stage my first time and get blown outta the water cause i had no idea what to expect or do. i learn better through experience, (as i thnink most people do, there’s only so much stuff you can listen to and read before you actually get your feet wet).
i plan on carb cycling my days from highs, moderated, and lows…obviously the one i posted is a high carb day
yea i photograph myself every few months for personal reference.
