Strength Program For T-Dawg Diet

man to tell u guys the truth...i couldnt take doing the velocity diet. i did it for 4 days and felt sick and depressed i dont know why. drinking the same protein shake every day just made me feel real sick and i couldnt sleep at night. 

however, on the bright side it was a great jumpstart to doing the t-dawg diet which i started today. while doing the t-dawg diet, would this strength training routine help me increase my strength also?

Day #1: Monday
Pull-up: 10 x 3 weighted
Bench Press: 10 x 3
Squat: 3 x 8
Hamstring Curl: 3 x 6
Calf/Biceps/Triceps exercises: 1 set each 6-10 reps
Ab exercise: anything goes

Day #2: Wednesday
Deadlift: 10 x 3
Rack Pull: 3 x 3-5
Flyes: 3 x 8
Overhead Press: 10 x 3 standing, cleaned from floor
Calf/Biceps/Triceps exercises: 1 set each 6-10 reps
Ab exercise: anything goes, but different than previous session

Day #3: Friday
Dips: 10 x 3
Rows: 10 x 3
Lateral Raises: 3 x 8
Lunge variations: 3 x 6-8
Calf/Biceps/Triceps exercises: 1 set each 6-10 reps

The only thing I would reccomend dropping is the lateral raises and flys…they seem unnecessary.

Hey

I am going to try and hold out another week or two with the V-Diet, if I go anymore crazy I too wil switch to the T-Dawg diet.

How did the switch feel? Wouldn’t the cal. intake messes up your metablism?

dude it went well…

it was a good disciplinary step towards the t-dawg diet cuz i dont have much cravings now. i still have lost 5 pounds and kept it off even coming onto the t-dawg diet so it went well
