I just wanted to share some progress. I'm not trying to say these numbers are anything unheard of, but if you look at the progress, it's kind of neat.
Now keep in mind when I bench I keep very nice form, no bouncing it off my chest or anything like that. I'm in complete control the whole time. I come down at a moderate pace then hold for a split second, and then explode.
My best in May of 2005 was 275#. Today 6 months later it improved 295#. How good is a twenty pound improvement in six months? What I changed is my diet.
It currently goes something like this...
3000 plus calories
250 grams of protein
Slow burning carbs through out the day (not sure of exact amount)
After work out:100 grams of simple carbs in the form of fruit, with protein shake
Hour after that I eat my final ?large? meal of the day about 600-800 calories
NO explode 3-4 scoops
BMI Whey Protein
I took 2-two week cycles of MAG-10 well. It ended about 3weeks ago.
For once I really feel like I'm making some decent progress. Now, while I feel the MAG-10 certainly helped. I'm more inclined to say the diet is what really did it.
One more thing, I'm not one of these guys how spends all his time on the bench press, I kind of consider it one of my weaker areas. Probably has something to do with being 6'2" with long arms, I don?t know. I?ve been lifting steady for 2 years now. My goals are recreational body building not power lifting.
