View Full Version : Dude Where's My Bulk???

07-30-2006, 10:51 PM
After a really bad start to the new years, I stopped training for a few months. Was going to muay thai and bjj for a while in feb, but had to quit due to lack of fundage. Anyway, was at a party the other night and ended up gettin a little tipsy, lol. Well, I just randomly stepped on the scale, and turned up 140, which is about eight pounds more than I was expecting. I've been taking in between 1600-3500 calories a day (mainly pasta and sandwhiches) for the past few weeks, without lifting. i'm gonna do a hard lift monday and see how that goes, then plan out the rest of the schedule. Like i said, I'm just getting back to training so it may be a couple of weeks before i get the numbers up again.

monday arms

Barbell curls....... 30 lbs 3 sets of 6
Hammer Curls...... 30 lbs 3 sets of 6
Upright rows.......30 lbs 3 sets of 6
Dumbbell Delt Presses....16 lbs..... 3 sets of 6

two pimiento cheese sandwhiches......approx 300 calories for snacks at work before lunch
half a bag of angel hair pasta with sauce for lunch....approx 1350 calories
chicken salad sandwhich for snack after lunch...approx 140 calories.
two more bowls of angel hair pasta after work....approx 750 calories.
plus gatorade most of the day through work, not sure about calories....
roughly 2740 calories.

the lift was pretty much dead on, felt good. taking today off, and chest tomorrow.

Flat Bench..............3x6 at 75--80 lbs
Incline Bench..........3x6 at 75--80 lbs

ugh. lol, but thats all im concerned with right now is calorie consumption..lol.

fixing to get a couple of sandwhiches and watch family guy, then call it a day.

Keep it up Skinny Diseal...bulking simply comes down to a eating game!

Good luck

08-02-2006, 11:56 AM
yep. already had two sandwhiches at work, ham and cheese and pb n j..lol.
got off at twelve today, fixing to make some pasta, then take a nap before I workout later.

08-02-2006, 12:21 PM
GL with the training. Im sure those 8lbs will help with some stronger lifts a few weeks down the road!

08-03-2006, 03:33 PM
chest workout was really good, ended up adding a set of 25 pushups. This heat is killin me at work, and I've only been working half days this week. I'm working till twelve tomorrow, then going to Espn2's Friday Night Fights with my friend of nine years. Fifth row, aisle, baby. Lmao. Should be a good card all around, but then again boxing has yet to get the "easy way out" fight mentality of the ufc fight planner. :rolleyes:

I'll post todays meals before bed.

08-05-2006, 12:11 PM
I just woke up, hungover and hungry as hell from last night. Snack right now, is ham sandwhich and three packs of ramen. Lol, are vodka calories good for bulking?

08-06-2006, 03:23 PM
just woke up about an hour ago, now i'm scarfing down whats left of a lb of angel hair pasta with sauce (3000 cals total), gonna get a couple of sandwhiches after i watch tv for a while, then gpicking up the tomato paste so i can try the piccadillo recipe for dinner.:strong:

08-27-2006, 12:42 AM
I know I need to keep up with this more, but work has been hell. I'm trying to maintain 143-145 for a boxing match September 9th. I'm doing a Lot of sparring, and dropping my calories to 2700-3100 a day. My confidence is through the roof now, and I'm looking forward to putting on a good show.
Will start posting meals again in the morning...:micro:

after the letdown for not fighting, took a week off from going to class. Today ran a full mile, hard, and did three two minute rounds on the heavy bag. The running sucked, but I have to start pushing through it more. yesterday ate two bags of ramen noodles, a box of mac and cheese, and two cups of rice with butter.

Don't really feel like getting all the calorie info right now, trying to quit drinking and it's kind of rough, so I'm starting to get cranky. :mad: I enjoyed drinking for a while, but lately it's gotten to the point I vomit/ pass out every time, so if nothing else i'll take a break for a while. Been clean two weeks today.....and its been a rough two weeks, lol. Oh well. Monday's chest day, I'll post after my workout.

What's your split like? Any reason you're doing a chest only day?

What's your split like? Any reason you're doing a chest only day?

actually I'm thinking of tweaking my current split, I'm starting to feel stronger. I work chest one day because it seems like chest is hardest to get results on, so I try to just do one chest workout and push it harder. Maybe I have the right idea??

any hints/ tips/ help greatly appreciated....I'll have to post my current split in the morning, I'm worn out from working ten hour shifts..:whiner: lol.
