yeah, that sounds like a good idea, especially if you are just starting to workout again. better to start slow and work your way up IMO :)

yup and thats the part I hate really, I just wanna be at where I left off but I guess that would make things to easy

okay here is the meals for today pretty similar to the previous day. As a note I am using saturdays as my day for a cheat meal but this being my second day I just had a frappacino from starbucks.

meal 1: 2 pieces of rye bread with tbsp of peanut butter/each

meal 2: 1 cucumber and a bun with ground beef and sourkraut and flecks of bacon

meal 3: can of V8(slept in) and another bun as above

Had some espresso before going to the gym

meal 4: protein shake

b33fc4ke
05-03-2003, 11:05 PM
now for my work out it was a plain cardio day but I did do some work on the shoulder. I did some extreme light shoulder press and it felt okay, did some rotator cuff exercises no pain, and i tried some bench and felt mild pain so I am guessing I am at least a couple more weeks from being able to add some semi serious weight to my bench. For cardio I rode the bike for 15mins at a higher tempo than previous cardio session. Starting next week will push it alot harder. Also as another footnote I finally did some cooking of rice so my meals will be better.

b33fc4ke
05-03-2003, 11:49 PM

was this shake post-workout? if it was, you might want to forget the nuts,becuase they will just slow the absorbtion of the whey. if not, leave them in. ;)

Looks like you need to eat more cals IMO (in my opinion:)) and also get some more protein and healthy fats in your diet. Might try entering your diet into a site like www.fitday.com to help you track your diet.

Stick with the 1g of protein per lb. of bw and spread this total out over 5-6 meals per day.

As far as healthy fats you could try and get some fish oil, flax oil, nuts, natural peanut butter, olive oil, etc. into your diet.

I would also throw some type of high GI carb (dextrose) in with your protein shake that you are having postworkout. This will refill muscle glycogen that is depleted during training.

Nice leg workout by the way, and good luck with the journal.

thanks bradley thats a real useful site, the only thing I don't like is that every site I check out says I am severly overweight or close to it when I am just big, like last time I measured i only had 16% bf and that was last summer so I mean unless that is overweight i dunno.

b33fc4ke
05-07-2003, 01:05 AM
okay so I did 30mins of cardio this morning at a moderate pace.

Food

meal 1: 1cup oatmeal w/ handful of raisins and protein shake

meal 2: same as yesterday

meal 3: same but with a big salad, no dressing

meal 4: .5 cup roasted pumpkin seeds and .5 cup walnuts

meal 5: the guy at Mcdicks messed up i was buying for my friends(they did a favor for me) and he gave us an extra milk shake so I had a small strawberry milkshake

I wouldn't really worry about that. All those charts and things say I am overweight to. They don't take into account that you are carrying around more muscle than the average Joe walking down the street. I just use the site because it is an easy way to track cals, and I don't really pay attention to all the other features.

Since you know that you usually eat like this on Wednesdays then you could just have this as maybe your planned cheat meal. Nothing wrong with eating something you like every now and then:)

okay so today I went in and rode the bike for 35mins again used the on board heart rate monitors and held 130bpm. I skipped for a bit and I think i am just gonna do that instead of the bike its waaaaaaay more strenuous.

b33fc4ke
05-09-2003, 01:39 AM

Congrats on the willpower not to drink. I personally haven't had a drop in about 2 months. Not that I had a drinking problem, but even the occasional drinking can hurt your diet & lifting.

I have found that I usually get a higher HR and feel like I have done a more strenuous workout in types of cardio that use a larger portion of the body. This includes the eliptical trainer and running, but not cycling. The things I dislike about running and skipping are related to supporting my body weight. Weight bearing exercises take me more time to recover and have a greater risk of injuries. Good luck with your goals.

b33fc4ke
05-09-2003, 12:21 PM
well skipping does involve a good portion of your body if you think about it, your core is used (or how else would you stand), legs(to jump), arms(gotta turn the rope somehow) and I find it really helps me get that cut in my calves so there is a split betweent he 2 heads

b33fc4ke
05-09-2003, 12:22 PM
but as a note the weather here has sucked asssssssssssss huge, as i would like to run in the morning but I am a big baby and its cold soooooooooo..........ah hell just gimme a tissue.....sniff.

No probably not as long as you keep the meals within reason. A couple of slices of pizza or some Chinese food is not going to make or break your diet. Just take it all into consideration when planning out what you are going to eat for the day.

b33fc4ke
05-12-2003, 12:02 PM
k sorry i didn't post yesterday but i have a cold......so i didn't eat all that much just drank water and drank turkey broth. I played hockey even though that probably wasn't the smartest thing to do. I will be taking the next couple days off to recover but I will still post my diet

b33fc4ke
05-13-2003, 12:45 PM
k again sorry i didn't post i was reformatting my computer and i jsut got busy with d/ling the updates and all that great stuff. So anywho heres my diet for the monday

meal1: 1cup oatmeal w/ handful of raisins and protein shake
meal 2: ~6oz pork tenderloin w/ 1cup rice and 2cups carrots
meal 3: 1 can tuna w/ 1cup rice, 2 cups steamed spinach
meal 4: 1/2 cup of roasted pumpkin seeds
meal 5: lamb chop with spinach egg bacon salad(no dressing)

So how are those pumpkin seeds? I remember having them as a kid, but i dont remember if they were good.

b33fc4ke
05-13-2003, 01:58 PM

b33fc4ke
05-14-2003, 11:22 AM
chins:
set 1
wide BW+10 x 10 rest = 30secs, medium BW+10 x 5 rest = 30secs, close BW+10 x 5 and 3 forced

set 2
wide BW+10 x 7 rest = 30secs, medium BW+10 x4 rest = 30secs, close BW+10 x 4 and 4 forced
*I think the reason for the dramatic increase in strength here is that the chin bar i used was angled instead of straight I don't know if that makes a difference, also don't know if i noted that I count even an attempt to pull myself up as a rep

bent over rows
135 x 10, 155 x 10, 155 x 7

hammer strength rows
45x10, 90x11, 90x10

b33fc4ke
05-16-2003, 12:39 AM
okay so today was a ****ty day for food, i just wasn't hungry all day weirdess thing. All i had was some oatmeal and a sandwhich, coffee, carrots and a couple cookies all day. Barely even drank water. I went and say matrix last night so i was kinda tired today not quite squatting intensity so i am gonna save it for tomorrow and i did arms today.

b33fc4ke
05-26-2003, 02:55 PM
okay so i have really been bad with my posting. I will report though all has been going fairly well. But I am having a bit of trouble with my diet. During the week its all great and dandy but when it comes to the weekend I have alot more difficulty eatting on a regular basis (ex 5- 6 meals). I am running around more and don't have access to a microwave most of the time if anyone reads this and has some ideas for me that would be great. Also, I will note my shoulder is still hurting I made an appointment for the docs this friday to see if it may require phsysio or something else. If you read the second last post I made it will explain a little more. So last week I did mainly cardio everyday and I did back on friday (couldn't do chins) and legs on sat and calves on sunday with cardio and hockey. Thats what my work outs are going to consist of for awhile till the shoulder gets better.

b33fc4ke
05-27-2003, 02:03 PM
okay I had a pretty full day yesterday so I didn't get a chance to work out.

meal 1: 1cup home made granola w/ protein shake
meal 2: 1can tuna w/ 1cup rice and hot sauce and 1 cucumber
meal 3: same as above but with 2 cups steamed spinach
meal 4: turkey sandwhich w/salad sans dressing
meal 5: hot dog with everything (we went out, i was hungry :( )

b33fc4ke
05-28-2003, 01:26 AM
so today I started out doing some HIIT with my skipping rope. Just went for 4mins 30s/30s.

meal 1: 1cup homemade granola w/ protein shake
meal 2: 2cups carrots w/ tuna wrap (lettuce, cheese, pepper, some ceaser dressing)
meal 3: same but with 2cups steamed spinach
meal 4: some bread and banana

b33fc4ke
05-29-2003, 01:08 PM
I'll post my workout when I get home today, I don't remember the weights and reps I did. I have a Dr. appt tomorrow about my shoulder to see if I should go to physio. This is being a real paing in the ass because i can't do wide grip chins, or shoulders or chest at all. But here was what I ate yesterday.

meal 1: 1/2 cup home made granola
meal 2: protein shake
meal 3: 1cup rice w/ 1can tuna and hot sauce and 2 cups carrots
meal 4: 5 pieces of pizza
meal 5: Denny's lumberjack slam

I hate to say it I have lost motivation to continue posting my progress as of late. I am dissappointed in myself for the lack of discipline in following my diet. I am going to take this weekend to rejuvanate myself and come back on monday with a vengence. I will be getting some progress pics done this weekend and I will post them sunday night probably. Till then adeu

here is another pic marathon. Roughly the same poses as last time around. This is approx. 3 weeks of strict dieting and 1 week of slacking.

an attempted lat spread, i don't think i did it right cause my lats look bigger when they aren't flexed. Also if anyone notices any improvements over the first set or hell even comments would be appreciated.

Thnx everyone
