Hey all,
I guess I'll just introduce myself.

I am a 16 year old male that has been lifting weights since i was 13. I started out at the local YMCA, as soon as I was old enough. When I transfered from a prep school to the local public, I started the school lifting program, with free wieghts-basically bench, squat, power clean, dead lift, and military press. Then when I was 14 I joined the only gym in out town other than the Y, which only has machines. The Fountains, is a small family owned business, and that is where my real lifting began. I got the basic run through by one of the local's, do this and that and this, 3 to 4 times weekly. Since then I've developed a diet and schedule, and added a little bit of supplement, under instruction of a girl that works out at the gym, and is a trainer in St. Louis.

As follows:
Mondays: bench, incline dbs, decline dbs, 2 pulling exercises for my back, dont know names
Tuesdays: smith machine squat, calf push ups, quad curls, extensions, i think i'm gonna add lunges
Wednesdays: db curls, preacher curls, sometimes bar curls, and always cable curls slow with light wieght and 15 reps, and tri's workouts, dont know names and i vary a lot, can't find stuff i like much
Thursdays: shoulders - arnold press, machine press, barbell chin ups, and db shrugs
Friday: rest or chest

Also, 2.75 miles run walk over a period of 43 minutes, mon through fri

Meal One: 2 egg whites
Meal Two: protein bar, started with Luna, went to Pure Protein, now on MesoTech, next box will be NitroTech i think
Meal Three: 5 egg whites, one egg yolk, baked potato, broccoli/califlower
Meal Four: cup of cottage cheese/yogart
Meal Five: a chicken breast, salad, usually
My 6th meal is supposed to be a piece of fruit, but usually dont get it in

Creatine, loading right now, have GNC Pro
Hydroxycut, started it yesterday, 4 pills a day

last checked: 225 lbs., 23% bf
started out at: 250ish, a lot more bf
just short of 6ft, big frame

Looking to lose more bodyfat, and upsize my muscles.
I need to get back to my diet, and I was looking for inspiration and found a board in my favorite style, vB, so here I am. Looking forward to a good time and lots of learning on this board.

Check ya later

i just did a calorie count, and stuck to that diet 100%, i'm only getting about 1100 calories

according to some calculator my BMR is 2265 calories

i am wanting to lose body fat, but should i up my calorie intake?

Also, does any mod want to be super friendly and move this to Journals, if not i'll just start a new thread over there, but it would be cool if you could

I would increase your calories to about 2000 and adjust from there, 1100 is way to little. Also cancel the fruit before bed, replace it with a some sort of quality protein source. Eat that peice of fruit with breakfast along with about 6 egg whites instead of 2. Try to count your protein, I'd go for about 210-250g a day spaced at about 2.5-3 hours inbetween doses. Don't load on the creatine, take 5-6g postworkout and thats it. The loading will probably only make you hold more water. Use the money you'll save on creatine to buy some glutamine. I take 20g a day of it although that is on the high side, probably 10g a day in 2 5g doses would be good.

well today at school this hydroxycut is making me hyper as heck and on minimum dose, its 1 in the afternoon and i've only eaten 2 protien bars, didn't have money or time yet, after school i will do the eggs and something, then lift about 4.30 or 5

i read the creatine article last night, 2 g a day, i need a scale or something

lots of water, lots of water, keep the comments and advice coming if you have it, all is welcome

2g a day? I guess I must have missed that study.
