I'm doing a body transformation at work starting December 1st and ending March 1st. The problem is that I have shoulder surgery at the end of this month and will be in a sling for 5 weeks and won't be recovered for 5 months! I'm not sure how long after the surgery I am going to be able to do any cardio (recumbent bike), but have been told by others that it most likely wont be for a few weeks after the surgery (December 12th or so). Most likely I will be able to do light upper body exercises after the second month. I have been working on my diet, workout, and supplement regime (plan) for the contest and am curious to see what my fellow T-men and women can come up with. For the first cycle I'm assuming little to no activity, medium carbs to ensure recovery, lower calories due to inactivity, and a thermogenic in order to burn a few extra calories while I channel surf. Here are my stats:
Height: 5' 10.5"
Body Fat %: 15% (but hoping to raise that to around 19% by the time the contest starts)
Background: CSCS, MFS, avid fitness reader, workout-aholic
The floor is open to suggestions...
