Intro - So, I've been reading these forums since 2003 and figured it's about time to start something up. I'm always looking for tips/advice and always looking to improve, so I figured I would make a journal....
Me - 5'11 193 26y/o. Have lifted on and off for 7 years, and very consistently the past year.
Goal - A lean 200#
Routine - 5 day split. day1 - chest, day2 - back, day3 - shoulders, day4 - Legs, day5 - Arms. My days off vary, but I always take a day off lifting between days 5 and 1. I pepper in abs 2x's a weeks and cardio 4 days a week (2x's 20 min. HIIT, 2x's 60 mins LISS).
Diet - Im usually awake around 8, lift at 9.
Meal 1 - scrambled egg wrap (5 egg whites, 2 whole eggs, throw in a vegg, and a TB or so olive oil, in a whole wheat wrap).
Meal 2 - 2 scoops MRP (approx 400 cals, 50 grams protein, 40 grams carbs)
Meal 3 - lean meat/fish w/veg. potato.
Meal 4 - 2 scoops MRP
Meal 5 - either 1 scoop MRP, cottage cheese/fruit, or more eggs.
I take just a multi vitamin and a couple Venom's everyday (before workout and during 2nd meal)
135X12, 185X10, 225X8, 275X8, 315X6
WG pull ups
BWX10X2, BWX8, assistedX10X2
Bent over DB rows
Bent over reverse flies
Cardio - 60 mins elliptical. LISS
Pretty good day today. DL's felt good, but by the time I got to the DB rows I was spent. Later start to my workout could be the reason. Cardio got me sweating good.
Military DB press
50x10, 75x8x2, 75x6x2
DB front raises
BB upright rows
65x10, 85x10, 95x10
Cardio - 15 mins, fairly intense elliptical
Felt super weak today. Had little desire to hit the gym. Usually rep 80-85, but was too lethargic to even rack up the 75s to get the 80s. Yikes. Came home and had a 60/60/20gram protein/carb/fat shake. Bout to bury an egg wrap.
Have been reading all the HTC articles....hmmmm
