The time has come! I gonna begin eating a little larger, so that I can add some nice, quality muscle.
For the past year or so I have been at the same weight, fluctuating very little on the scale and only gaining moderate strength gains. It took some time to face fact, but it’s now all so simple. It’s math. Calories in vs. calories out.
My problem has also been the intake level, as I eat very strict and make excellent food choices. While at 180 lbs.(I’m 6’ ft.) I have been eating way to little (even though my feedings were frequent) at around 2300 calories!
Anyways, I did some rough base calculations to start with, and I’m gonna initially bump my calories up to 3500.
I want to keep excessive fat gain as little as possible (doesn’t every one) so I want to make sure my choices are on point. Here’s a diet I put together, using what I had been eating, but just adding more!
Please make some suggestions and edits.
As far as training, I’m doing a full body routine MWF and 1 hour of MMA (it’s more technique, not really any conditioning) at 10AM and track (sprint) practice at 5PM for only about 30 minutes (warm-up, stretch, a few sprints and drills, then cool down, pretty brief) on TThS.
As for goals, gaining about 10 lbs. muscle mass (so about 20-25 lbs. on the scale), then losing some fat back down to 175-180 lbs. (I’d like to stay on the leaner side for track/martial arts)
I appreciate it guys.
