Thought I’d sign up and start a log to keep everything together.
Bit of background in case anyone else is reading this. Been training for approx 2 years. Started at 6’1 and 155lbs. Been following a bodybuilding type split for most of this time and am currently 210lbs at 6’1. I’d estimate bodyfat to be around 15%. Only started paying attention to diet for the last few months. Before that, was just eating clean, but not limiting amounts or macros.
Decided I wanted to focus on strength now that I have a semi-decent base to start from. After reading Wendler’s 5/3/1 ebook, I’m gonna be following the programme for as long as I can get results. I’ve never really tested my 1-rep max, so will likely adjust my training maxes for my second cycle.
Diet wise, I’ve found that my body is well suited to intermittent fasting, and will be using this layout:
Training days - 2828 kcal, 200g protein, 354g carbs, 68g fat
Rest days - 1885 kcal, 200g protein, 54g carbs, 96g fat
Once I get to 8-10% bodyfat, I plan to slowly increase the amounts to gain some more size. Will be checking weight and measurements every Sunday.
