Long story short, I found myself much more accountable for diet/workouts when I keep a log on here and am going to do that once again.
Back story, fat my whole life, now I’m not fat, but not lean. Mid september 2007 I was 218.6 (That number still haunts me) at 39.3% BF at 5’10 1/2. I’m currently 172 and had my bodyfat tested today by a student at the gym and had reading of 9% on calipers and 19.5% on the underwater weighing, although I held a shoe up for the caliper readings and believe that helped me a little bit. It’s safe to say I’m somewhere in between there and honestly do not care too much about the number, just how I look.
Goals: Diet down to a visible six pack, then get as big as my genetics will let me go. My dad was a bodybuilder/competitive lifter so hopefully genetics will let me be massive and I can draw on his knowledge and trial and error for quite a bit of things. In 2 years or so or when I’m ready, I’d like to compete in a powerlifting competition as I’ve recently fell in love with the deadlift and squat.
I’ll post bi-weekly pictures, measurements. Daily workouts and diet log.
Diet: 1500 on off days and 1800 on lifting days, mainly chicken, eggs, veggies, fish oil, flax seeds, and Metabolic Drive.
Supplements: HOT-ROX, BCAAs (I love these), ZMA, Resveratrol, CLA, Creatine along with some Vitamin D. If you don’t take around 10 tablets (About 1000 IUs each) of vitamin D a day, start doing it. I’ve yet to catch an illness while taking them and thats been around 7 months now, supposed to cut down on cancer risk greatly as well.
Workouts: Undecided currently, I just got done doing 5-7 sets of 3-5 reps on 3 day split for 4 weeks so gonna try something different than that. My roommate is a gymnast (strong little fuckers) and did a 10x10 workout with him yesterday that has me fried today. I’m gonna get the workout off of him today and take a look at it, supposedly work each body part twice a week, once for 10x10 and once for 5x5 except for legs which get squats and deadlifts for both of those. Using compound lifts when possible (Bench press, clean and press, dips, pullups etc). If I can keep up with the volume on this diet then I’ll probably try that.
So once again, I’d like to be lean for one time in my life and then get enormous.
