Workout Days Monday, Wednesday, Friday 2017 kcal
Non-Workout Days Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, Sunday 2179kcal

Goals: 10% BF@ 170-175 by 4/1


So thats my diet...for workout I'm basically following WBB routine #1...

Did Shoulders, Tri, Bi workout today (day 5)

Military Press in Rack : 1 x 1, 2 x 8 reps @ 115,95,95 (need to increase this should help my bench which is around 215x5 mostly chest power)

Seated Dumbbell Press : 2 x 8 reps @ 30's DB (not heavy, but had problems keeping it balanced)

Standing Lateral Raises : 2 x 10 reps @ 20's DB (way to easy), 25's DB (decent, burning last 2 reps)

Narrow Grip bench Press : 2 x 8 reps @ 115, 115 (wasnt feeling **** in my tris or chest, but my shoulders were dead from before so i didnt want to add to much more weight)

French Press : 2 x 8 reps @ 60,60 (too light, will increase weight next time)

Barbell Curls : 2 x 6,8 reps @ 80,60

Hammer Curls : 1 x 6 reps @ 30's DB

I've been slacking on my bi's a lot and it shows, I was curling 120 a few months ago :(

Overall, the workout was decent - shoulders was intense, tris was weak, bis were fairly intense

I have some problems with DB's because I've been using BB's for over a year and have a little balance problem, but no big deal. I slacked off for a 2-3 months and didnt workout, but my lifts should be flying up soon.

Well, thats it for today..

Why do workout days get less calories that non-workout days or is it the other way around?

dxiw
01-31-2004, 10:09 AM
sorry thats a typo - my workout days are 2179 @ 240g protein and my nonworkout at 2017 @ 239g protein (the difference is nonworkout days have 130g carb and workout days have 160g) I thought an extra 30 carbs give me energy for my workout (its my pre workout meal)

dxiw
01-31-2004, 10:12 AM
So today is Saturday, 1/31/04...

I woke up late around 9 AM blah... drank my non workout day shake - mm mm I love the vanilla designer whey haha..

JUst gonne skip the protein bar meal since i woke up late and head straight to the 2 wraps at noon.. no workout for today! but my shoulders and bi's are nicely sore...

I will post more tonight...

BTW Very happy bout my diet!! I've kind of gotten used to it now that its my third day and the hunger craving are dying off almost totally. I'm gonna post weekly progress pics in here on my diet... so basically one every thursday... well thats it for now..

dxiw
01-31-2004, 09:26 PM
So I cheated big...the veal was lean and nice..but rice...I ate a whole plate..prob like 100g of carbs...oh well even more motivation to be strict next week!

drew
01-31-2004, 09:40 PM

well damn...I just ****ed up today again...morning was good..then my parents took me out with them (big mistake)..ended up eating olive garden (salad and veal parmegiana)... so I'm gonna skip my 4pm meal... I'll clean it up by eating a salmon fillet with some spinash leaves for dinner and a whole chicken breast for dinner...that should take care of the protein requirement ..and I probably killed on the carbs..but this week will be a time to clean up! strict diet all the way...

oh and I went and bought some 60lb dumbells...yay

dxiw
02-01-2004, 09:13 PM
cleaned up for dinner yay! ate salmon with some feta cheese and few spinach leaves - i plan on doing 1 chicken breast and 5g of glutamine before bed.... I bought some glutamine too - will be doing 5g nightly before bed

dxiw
02-01-2004, 09:14 PM
so that makes a total of 8g of glutamine non workout days and 10g on workout days overall..

well due to possible kidney problems i'm changing my diet to 120-140g protein

drew
02-03-2004, 08:04 AM
Nice workouts.

What is the possible kidney problem? Were you told to decrease your protein intake, or are you just assuming that's the problem? Have you seen a urologist?

dxiw
02-03-2004, 06:57 PM
Well I had protein in my urine a few months ago - I think it was a mistake but not sure...anyways thats not the main reason to turn down the protein...

i'll explain in a second..

ok about today
good diet, lots of salad, lots of vitamins/minerals, healthy fats, about 120g of protein

back to the protein thing...

I talked to my uncle a famous nephrologist for 2 hours yesterday (he is 225-235lb and very big/strong) about weightlifting and he explained me the medical background behind all this and the large amounts of protein not only stress the kidneys but are unneccessary .. he eats 130-140 g day and is huge... basically, medically inactive ppl need 0.8-1.0g/kg and weightlifters need 1.2g/kg on nonworkout days and 1.4g/kg on workout days - anything extra gets wasted and overstresses the kidneys - ever notice how older bodybuilders and powerlifters have nasty health problems? this is one reason - another thing he told me is after hard workouts drink lots of water - when muscle tissue breaks down it releases creatine phosphokinase which is an enzyme that is very nasty for the kidneys, by drinking lots of water you can help wash it away.. and lastly he said - strength, speed and endurance is healthy - size is not - medically, when a muscle cell gets larger it has less power per unit area and the cell itself begins to get restricted from nutrients...he recommends some hypertrophy to look decent but not to be huge because its really unhealthy for you. In fact when big bodybuilders get in car accidents the stress releases 100x the CPK that a normal person would have and they usually have renal failure which leads to death or dialysis - in order words, unless your trying to a large amount of fat - high protein is not only unneccessary, but dangerous on long term - u may not see effects for years. He suggests lots of salads and healthy vegetables/fruits for cutting and for bulking bread/pasta/etc. I'd rather play it safe and healthy rather than be huge and in 10 years be sitting in the hospital. The healthy way to train is to develop more fiber in the muscles not to enlarge existing ones - that can be dangerous for them. Also, another thing to watch out is that heavy lifts create a ton of chest pressure which can kill u if ur heart valve fails - happenned to some of my dads patients (he is heart doctor). I know its hard to beleive - but look in any serious medical textbook and muscle hypertrophy and high protein diets are linked to all sorts of health problems and a mess. I think I will be like my uncle and train for strength and healthy size (more fibers) as well as endurance. He basically recommends for teens and people under 21-22 to lose all fat from cardio/exercise rather than diet - as an adult (23-24)+ you should begin dieting - and moderate protein, just low carb - see medically low carbs no matter how low can't hurt you - but protein can be a mess .. in fact I remember when I visited him and his gym buddies in CA a few years ago how they were huge and only ate 140g of protein - i asked how and they told me you have to eat all natural and good sources of protein - they all seemed to be against supplements - and now that i think about it the first year i started lifting at age 13 I ate about 130ish grams of protein all natural and went from 134lb to 176lb in 7 months..all muscle bf% went up 1 or 2%

dxiw
02-03-2004, 07:00 PM
my new diet is looking around 70-80g fat (all unsaturated natural healthy), 200-250g of carbs (all salad veggies & fruit) and 100-120g protein (chicken and other natural sources)

1800-2200 cals .. I'll prob increase the carbs to 250-300g if I'm getting hungry

my BMR is 2010 cals and my activity is about 1500 more...so I'll be losing weight regardless

dxiw
02-04-2004, 08:37 PM

feta cheese

alrite diet has been going ok (with a few small cheats everynow and then like eating too much dressing with the salad, etc.)

I posted up pics of my 1 week progress, I think I'm improving little by little...

todays my sisters birthday - so the dinner will be a definite cheat - but thats it I will keep it strict for the next month or I'll shoot myself - gotta be determined

lets see as far as workout goes i had to take off a week for some medical crap....but back and stronger than ever

monday did chest and back on the wbb workout

bench was 205x6,4
incline db was 120x6,6
didnt do dips
pulldowns was 135x4,125x8,105x10
deadlifts was 250x4 then decided i need to improve form over wieght lifted so i did 190x8,15 just for good form practice (wasnt hard to lift still got great workout though because lower back could handle easy but other parts couldnt)
barbell rows was with 70lb did 2x8,10 (not heavy but burning from being exhausted)

diet - crappy way only 2 pig out meals

workout - almost died (read why below)
bench press 4x6,6,5,2 @ 205,205,215,215
on the third bench set i tried for a 6th rep and get stuck - my spotter wasnt paying attention thne he realizes and its too late he couldnt lift the bar - so he calls another guy (all this with the bar on my chest) my arms are so dead they both can't lift it (skinny guy) by now much chest is about to crack and reddish blue so i tell both of them to grab the bar on one side and i let go of that side, they drop it and it misses me by an inch on that side using my other arm i manage to get the end of the bar off of my chest and leaning against something.. i immediatly crawl out from under.. god i never thought a normally easy 215lb could be heavy..****ing ****ty spotters.. i tried for another set and only got 2 (stuck on third, different spotter)
so hopefully friday will be a better bench day - i'm gonna go all the way upto 270 on the neg (dont be fooled by the 215 incident today i got stuck 1 inch below the pegs, then was stuck with it on my chest for 12 minutes...)
db bench press 2x15 @ 60's
flies 1x15@ 35's
lateral shoulder raises 1x10 @ 30's

what a terrible day for lifting..

but the end of the day was awesome - i got a letter from MIT in the mail that I had been accepted!!!! I spent the rest of the day celebrating and jumping around (though my chest still is red...argh)..

ectx - don't worry I'm sure you will be soon :)

so I went to the gym with my uncle (I'm visiting him in Cali this week). LA Fitness seems like a nice gym, they had a lot of good equipment and some HUGE natural guys. I'm doing my uncle's routine this week which will just be arms today and chest/back on sat because of schedule conflict. He does a hardcore bodybuilding routine and I'm gonna start on it - finally getting a membership to a real gym (rather than my wannabegym at home). HE taught me a lot of cool stuff, and for the first time in months I felt my biceps and tricep ready to blow up. We started off doing supersets of standing barbell curl and then skull crushers. Instead of the usual warmup set and then full blast, I did it my uncle's way which really blasted me, I really like his higher volume workout - granted it took almost 4 hours (1:30 of bicycle cardio) it felt really good. Downed a MetRx protein shake afterwards..

8:00-9:30 Bicycle Class (cardio, more conditioning than fat loss)
9:30-11:00 Weights:
Triset:
Standing BB Curl 6x12,12,10,10,8,10 @ 40,50,60,70,80,60
Skull Crushers 6x12,12,10,10,8,10 @ 40,50,60,70,80,60
Close Grip Tri press 6x8,8,8,8,8,8 @ 40,50,60,70,80,60

Superset:
DB Alternating Curl 4x10 @ 20's,25's,25's,30's
DB Tricep Overhead Extension 4x10 @ 50,55,50,50

Tricep Rope Pressdown 3x12 @ 80,100,120

This workout emphasized form over weight, I really focused on recruiting the muscle and I got a much better workout than my usual using higher weights and low reps.

i'm really focusing on blasting legs - i only started them a month and half ago although i have been lifting for 3 years... i need to get them to catch up...i mean they are like 25" but they don't seem anything big at all. i'm just hardcore bulking and doing hard leg sessions - and everything else is improving. legs are truly amazing - i mean i started my bulk at 179lb @ like 10%ish...now 2.5 weeks later i'm at 189 @ 12%... not bad... my plan is low 200's maybe 210 around 14-15% and then cut it away... its weird though cause i have higher bf% but my abs and stuff look more defined - i think its the larger size - today after workout my top 4 abs were sticking out like an inch maybe more..it was crazy...

Decided to hit the forearms 3 days a week as my grip sucks a monkeys ***. So today i started:

all DB weight is per arm

superdupertriset:
DB Wrist Curl 5x10,15x10,30x4,20x8,20x8,20x8
DB Other Wrist Curl where you twist the wrist halfway.. 5x10,15x10,30x4,20x8,20x8,20x8
DB reverse wrist curl 5x10,15x10,30x4,20x8,20x8,20x8

superset:
BB Wrist Curl 40x10,40x10,40x10
BB Reverse Curl (first set was actual reverse curl others were reverse wrist curl)
both exercises holding contraction for 3 seconds...40x10,40x10,40x10

15 min of posing/flexing forearms..looking nice

very junk bulking...loaded 3000 cals at breakfast and about 3500 more just at lunch..still gotta do dinner

Body Statistics

Bodyweight: 193
Bodyfat Percentage: 12.5% caliper tested
New Measurements: forearms - 12.25R/11.75L (up from 11.5/11.25) arms - 15.25R/15.00L (up from 14.65/14.5) waist - 35 (but 6 abs still showing so whatever)

Finally making some nice gains and i look huge in the mirror... I was wondering why so i ran a count - turns out the last week i've been eating aroun 5000 cals a day and these last 2 days 6000 cals a day... really coming out nicely.. my last bulk i ate 4000 and i was barely gaining..even now i'm maintaining bodyfat without gaining at 6000 cals.. pretty crazy huh oh and no supplements except heavy doses of vit c/e

DISASTER!!!!!


I had a great time in Oregon this past week, I was there for the international science fair. However, unfortunately, all we did is eat junk food for the whole week and a lot of it and were also unable to work out. I came back today, and I weighed in at 198 (nude) but 16% bodyfat. Not only did I become fatter, I think I lost some muscle. I feel so disgusting with my body and its depressing me, to make things worse I can't workout until this Thursday :( I don't know what to do, it seems I just killed my bulk, I was doing great at 14.5% at 200 lb and now after this week of disaster I gained fat and lost muscle... how disgusting... my abs are very faded now and I am soo depressed. What do I do?????? :( :( :(


to top it all off, I'm very stressed about having to make up 3 weeks of school work and my parents are putting a lot of pressure on me about random stuff. I'm afraid to look in the mirror because I want to cry... this is so sad.. why I am I putting this in my journal

whew! I feel so much better, I took a long shower and shaved most of my body and after 2 meals of high protein and carbs my muscles are starting to swell up, also, being shaven I see some better definition than I did before. I remeasured my bodyfat to be 14.3% whew boy did I get scared before..

ack bodyfat is creeping up again..around 15.5%.. gonna start cutting in a week and a half of ultimate diet 2

anyways, leg workout was yesterday but i was too lazy to post it.. only had 15 min so I didnt do much..but seemed to work.. I am nice and sore

Parallel Squat 45x10,135x10,225x6,225x6
ATF Squat (these are really a bitch) 225x6,225x5

working on form more than anything, the weight isnt that difficult (exxept the ATF, the parallel was light, I must have no ass muscles lol)

starting UD 2.0 next week, I will be making a new journal, this week I will be doing the muscle media bench routine cause i just need something different to do, and next week I do into UD2.0. I need to cut my lard ass from 16% @ 205 to 8% @ 185-190. Wish me luck! This has been a good journal to me!
