    Cyc's road to buffness

    Ok, starting tomorrow i'll embark on my journey. As i've said before, i'm 5'7", weighing in at an incredibly pathetic 115lb. Short term plan is to gain AT LEAST 30lb in 6 months, hopefully reaching around a 10% body fat percentage by that time. I'll need all the encouragement I can get.

    I'll be on the Wanna Be Big routine so long as i'm progressing my lifts.

    Day 1 : Chest and Back


    Flat Barbell Bench Press : 2 x 6-8 reps
    Low Incline Dumbbell Press : 2 x 6-8 reps
    Dips : 2 x 6-8 reps


    Chin ups : 2 x 6-8 reps
    Deadlifts : 2 x 6-8 reps
    Barbell Rows : 2 x 6-8 reps
    Shrugs : 1 x 10 reps

    Day 2 : OFF

    Day 3 : Legs

    Squats : 2 x 6-8 reps
    Hack Squats : 2 x 6-8 reps
    Leg Curls : 2 x 6-8 reps
    Straight Legged Deadlifts : 2 x 6-8 reps
    Standing Calve Raises : 4 x 10 reps

    Day 4 : OFF

    Day 5 : Shoulders, Triceps and Biceps


    Military Press in Rack : 2 x 6-8 reps
    Seated Dumbbell Press : 2 x 6-8 reps
    Standing Lateral Raises : 2 x 10 reps

    Triceps :

    Narrow Grip bench Press : 2 x 6-8 reps
    French Press : 2 x 6-8 reps

    Biceps :

    Barbell Curls : 2 x 6-8 reps
    Hammer Curls : 1 x 6-8 reps

    Day 6 : OFF

    Day 7 : OFF


    Abs to be done on any training day of personal choice.

    Crunches : 4 x 8-10 reps

    My prospective temporary diet is detailed here.

    2 whole eggs
    4 egg whites
    1 glass milk

    500 cal

    146g carb

    Meal 3:

    31g protein
    10g fat
    50g carb

    Meal 5:
    Same as meal 3

    TOTAL: (estimate)
    3750 calories

    129.5g fat

    PLUS about 12 glasses of water per day.
