Started training a year ago. Didn’t know what i was doing until February. Went on a cut… Then a bulk in March, on which I gained like 8 kg (ate WAY too much, including total crap like ice-cream). Then back to a cut… Was all done by September, but gained like 6/7 kg in a couple of weeks.
Now, I’ve cut down to a pretty slim 71 kg (not that cut, but hey, it’s starting to get very mentally challenging for me to cut at this point, plus I don’t think I can get any more “cut” since there’s not much to cut TO!). Gonna go on a lo-ong bulk to at least 80kg.
Experience shows that I don’t react very well to carbs, so I’m going to stick to 1 carb meal on workout days, 2 carb meals on non-workout days. I’m also thinking of implementing “control days,” as per Thibaudeau.
The program I’m going to use for the first 7 weeks is Stripped Down Hypertrophy. 3 weeks on/ 4 days off, then 3 weeks on/ 4 days off again. Not quite sure where I’m going to go from there…
Anyway, for the log!
Breakfast - 2 whole eggs/2 egg whites w/ 15 grams of coconut oil. Some tomatoes and cucumbers with apple vinegar.
Brunch - 200 g of low-fat farmer’s cheese, scoop of Metabolic Drive, tsp olive oil.
Snack - Kefir, 350 mg
Lunch - 150 g of beef + tomatoes/cucumbers/onion
Pre-workout (1 hour out) - scoop of Metabolic Drive, tbsp avocado oil, might have a plum or something, too.
Para-workout - 40g of BCAA’s
Post-workout - SURGE
Dinner - more meat, light vegetable soup, and I’ll probably throw in some fibrous bread with hummus in there, too, since I’ll probably want some slow-burning carbs post-workout.
Planned Training for Today: (I haven’t trained for about 10 days, and Stripped Down Hypertrophy has pretty small rest periods, so going light for the first 2 training sessions)
Chin-ups with red or blue bands… haven’t decided yet. Will probably start with blue and go on to red if these don’t offer enough resistance.
Military Press, 36 kg
Good Mornings, 36 kg. I usually bend my knees a bit on good mornings… Should really work on that.
Bench Press, 75kg
Bent-Over Dumbell Row, 29.5kg (each hand)
Squats, 95 kg
