I signed up mostly to start an Online Journal, I must admit. That said, here is my somewhat personal information. I don't like my Information or pictures posted all over the net, I am paranoid like that. Maybe when I get a better feel for this message board thing, I will post before and after pics.
I am 5'10, 185lbs- have no idea of my bodyfat percent. Probably pretty high, 15% or so. I am going to bulk anyhow. It will probably be march before I got down to 8% or so, and bulking in the spring isn't something I want to do. My goal is to hit 190 at 8-10% BF by the end of my cut. My lifts are not great, but I have seen on here that it does not matter, only that I progress. That I will do.
My diet for this bulk is not going to be great. I will be eating about 3800 calories, and eating a bunch of chicken and rice doesn't work, even beef and rice gets old when I am eating 600 calories a meal 6 times a day. I simply cannot gag enough down to reach my caloric intake.
I will eat healthy however. Many vegetables, fruits, and as little processed foods as possible. Burritos will be supplimented once in awhile for the sheer calorie intake. I count calories meticulously, and keep my Carbs at ~55%, Protein at around 15% and Fats around 30%. I will limit my fast food to once or twice a week. Pastas, beef, chicken, milk, eggs, veges, fruits, yogurt, rice, etc. I won't cover much on diet, except to comment on total calories consumed and if I cheated and ate mcdonalds that day or not.
I don't follow any particular routine, just a 3-day split, with low volume. (relatively) I will work on incresing my volume slowly. I am not a beginner really, but not quite intermediate. I lifted for a few months in the past, quit, and started again recently. For the last few months, I have been losing weight. I was starting to get to be a porker. (195+)
I am also an ex-smoker, only been smoke free about a year now. My cario fitness is pretty sad. During my bulk I won't do much, if any at all, but I will work on it in March.
My bulk plans go 11 more weeks. Until March 23rd. March 24th I start my Cut, and plan on being in swimsuit shape by the around May 20th or so. When my cutting phase starts I will focus on diet in these journals.
Hmm, I think that covers all my personal information and goals. Now comes the fun part.
