ok thought i would post on here to get some advice from people to make sure i dont waste my time or go down the wrong path and get bad results.
I am back in the gym after some time off due to injurys and personal things. My goal is to bulk up all this year and some of 2013 to be ready for a bodybuilding comp by August/September of next year.
I am currently at 198 pounds and im gaining roughly 2 pounds a week. my current split is
day 1 Legs and calves
Day 2 shoulders and traps and some forearms
Day 3 Rest
Day 4 back and Lats and some Abs
day 5 bi’s and tri’s and calves
Day 6 chest and some abs
im doing 6 to 7 excercises each session 4 sets and a rep range of 12-15. and the excercices i use differ from week to week but will include the big 3 every week IE squats, Deadlift and Bench. i add more sets in for the big 3 so might do 5 to 6 sets.
My diet is pretty much the same every day here is a basic example.
7.30 am 400ml milk 2 scoops of ON whey and some porridge OATS 1 scopp of BCAA
10.00am 1 grilled chicken breast and a handfull of tomatoes
12.30am Tuna Pasta with some onions or sweetcorn (sometime forget the veggies but try not to)
3.00pm 3 boilded eggs and some sort of cracker or brown bread.
5.00pm 3 handfulls of mixed nuts
train for an hour to an hour and a half straight after completing training i will have another 2 scoops of ON whey and 1 scoop of BCAA
8.00 Steak and VEG, Chicken breast and VEG, chcicken and Rice, Minced Beef and pasta or rice with VEG IE usualy meat pasts/rice and some veg
10.30 400ml of milk semi skinned 2 scoops of ceasin
I will have a cheat meal on a saturday which will usualy mean a huge pizza to myself with chicken wings or some sort of Kebab with Veg. and i might chuck in a desert on top of that ie a big chocy bar.
I also take 45mg of Zinc, 2 multivitimians and an omega 3 tablet. and 4 ON creatine tablets, soon to swap for 2 scoops in my shakes as cheaper and more creatine.
So one is my goal realistic? two am i eating and training enough? three is there any tips or things you reckon i should change? I will post pics up when at home to show what i am at now after 2 months. thanks for the advice guys and this is my first attempt at bodybuilding so i know im definatly not going to be 100% correct at what i am doing.I did strongman before this and just concentrated on getting fat and big and lifting big. so a big change in direction.
