trying to swithch things up this week and well see how i like it;

my workout consists of a 3 day split of full body workouts

6 total workouts, each 3-4 sets but different intensity/volume each day

day1: Heavy **** with low volume
day2: Hypertrophy, generally 50 total reps per exercise (ie: deadlift @ 205x50 reps)
day3: isolation with high volume low intensity
day4: Rest day and then Repeat [:

i started a new diet today as well keeping it simple;
1 gram of carb per pound of lean body weight @ 170/day and 300 grams protein 2500 calories total

started weighing out and preparing food ahead of time

okay enough typing time to hit day 3 and **** **** up

12-28-2009, 11:26 PM
wierd how when i started preparing my meals before hand i suddenly get super dedicated and my bottomless appetie went missing?

im 5 meals down with 2 to go and i dont feel i can stuff it down and it is already 930pm... im only at 2100 calories far below my goal

anyways pretty damn good workout today! bought a new watch with a big second timer and i never let myself rest more than 30 seconds between each set, good overall pump

tommorow is rest day but well see i think i have a date with the stairclimber :moon:

^^^ i actually decided to hit chest today after hitting the gym for cardio sesh

LISS on the stai stepper and then some chest

too much stimulants this day, and too little carbs
