    On the road to 300

    Hereeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee's Ryu!

    Hey!! well.... decided to start a new journal because everyone else is so here we go. Ended my cut right before I went on vacation about 3 weeks ago. Now I am up a few lbs a lot of it water, probably a lot of it fat, but also some muscle. I was working out and doing cardio while on vacation just because I love doing it. I was literally eating crap all day long beyond being full just because... I'll give myself the benefit of the doubt and say 6000 calories a day!!!! Anyways... the plan now is just to get bigger and gain strength and lift more then I was lifting apparently before I ended my bulk, I will eat x amount of calories as long as I am gaining strength, when I stop I will up it to x amount of calories again.

    Bodyweight = 165 lbs this morning

    The diet right now.....

    ~2500 calories (starting calorie intake... is it too little I guess we'll find out)
    1g/b protein
    30% fat from healthy sources (trace fats, fish oil caps, peanut butter)
    remaining calories coming from carbs

    - this roughly works out to be 40/30/30 ....
    none of this protein+fat protein+carb crap... and fitting in cals in about 4 meals sometimes 5. Clean Clean Clean Diet... it's amazing how easy it is to get about 170 grams of protein and see people struggling to get that much in.

    Main sources of food

    Protein
    - 98% lean ground beef, eggs, chicken, fish, and turkey
    Carbs
    - Oats, brown rice, sweet potato, black beans, veggies
    Fats
    - Peanut Butter, Fish oil caps

    Supplementation

    Vitamin C
    Vitamin E
    Multi Vitamin
    Whey (PWO)
    Started Creatine again as well...
    Fish oil caps

    Workout

    - Upped the frequency lowered the volume, split the body into upper and lower... so hitting things about once every 4 days or twice a week switching one or two exercises the 2nd time around. Workout below as of now...

    Upper Body Day 1
    Bench Press 2x4-6
    Dips 2x4-6
    Pullups 2x4-6
    Rows 2x4-6
    Skulls 2x4-6
    Hammer Curls 2x4-6
    Seated Press 2x4-6
    Laterals 2x4-6
    BO Laterals 2x4-6

    Upper Body Day 2
    Replace dips with Incline Bench
    Change grip on pullups

    Lower Body Day 1
    Squats 2x4-6
    BB Lunges 2x4-6
    SLDL's 3x4-6
    Standing Calf Raises 2x4-6
    Seated Calf Raises 2x4-6
    Shrugs 2x6-8
    Abs

    Lower Body Day 2
    Deadlifts 3x4-6
    Leg Press 3x4-6
    Leg Curl 2x4-6
    Standing Calf Raises 2x4-6
    Seated Calf Raises 2x4-6
    Shrugs 2x6-8
    Abs

    Countdown to Iraq part deuce = 40 days

    Time to eat...

    thanks for the kind words CoCoa

    Today's Training

    Sleep = 8 Hours
    - over the course of the last month my sleep has improved greatly, I fall asleep a lot easier as well as stay asleep a lot longer with the occasional urge to urinate at some point in the night
    Diet = ~2500 calories
    Meal 1: 1 cup oatmeal, pb, egg white omelette with veggies
    Meal 2: 1 cup oatmeal, 1 scoop whey, few berries
    Meal 3: WW Pita, ground beef, veggies, PB
    Meal 4: WW Pita, ground beef, veggies, PB
    Meal 5: Black beans, brown rice, turkey, veggies

    Workout: Lower Body

    Deep Squats: 205x5 205x5
    - Dropped weight to focus on form and depth
    Smith Lunges: 160x8/8 160x8/8
    - Not counting resistance of bar, each set was close to failure especially those on my left leg, I might also be stepping differently with my left leg as I feel it may be hitting differently while performing the exercise
    SLDL: 185x6 195x6 195x6
    - Dropped the weight and using form in linky here http://www.bsu.edu/webapps/strengthlab/images/sldl.mpg
    Standing Calf Raises: 275x10 275x10
    - Weight was fairly easy, used full rom up and down with a squeeze at the top
    Seated Calf Raises: 90x8
    - Full ROM, squeeze at top... thinking about dropping these and just doing standing calf raises as it hits the whole calf muscle anyhow.
    Shrugs: 225x10 225x10
    - Another exercise I dropped the weight to focus on full ROM and pause at the top.
    Abs: 2x8 on ab machine, 2x12 cable crunches

    Total Time = 45 minutes

    Thanks BigC

    Yeah Nic getting deployed again unfortunately unless something happens otherwise (they deem me not capable of going)

    I think my weight will be down even from 165 seeing as now that my diet is back to clean I am peeing like a race horse... so I am definitely holding a ton of water that is being flushed due to the change. I also saw spiderman2 at the cheap theatre since it just came out there today... they also released collateral and king arthur which I was planning on seeing. Anyone else seen either of the two? good/bad?

    edit: is leaving 5 times to go pee during the movie excessive?? lol.

    How's it going ryu?

    Nice gains, that your going through at only weighing 165. I'm also already deployed, and this is my first time it's not so bad. Talking about the movies, its unbelievably cheap for dvd's out here! take it easy.

    I heard Collateral was good from some of my friends. Tom Cruise is a huge badass in it. King Arthur was supposed to be one of the worst movies ever made, but I didn't see it,lol.

    Here's some "new journal"



    for ya'.

    Also, this is just my 2 cents, but in your upper body routine i would do the seated presses after your back work. The way you have it(after arm work) your tris will be fatigued and give out before your delts will on the presses=your delts will suffer development wise. If you do the presses earlier your tri's will be a little fatigued, but they won't suffer development wise. Does that mumbo jumbo make sense, lol.

    Today's Trainin

    Sleep = 8 Hours
    - I don't know if its the increase in calories... the increase in carbs... or the increase in fats but sleep is awesome.

    Diet = ~2500 calories

    Meal 1: Oatmeal, PB, Eggwhites, veggies, apple
    Meal 2: WW Pita, ground beef, veggies, PB
    Meal 3: Oatmeal, few berries, veggies, chicken
    Meal 4: Black beans, brown rice, veggies, chicken, pb
    Meal 5: Sweet potato, veggies, chicken, pb

    Weights = Rest Day

    Cardio = Spinning class
    Total time = 45 minutes
    avg heart rate = 130 bpm/60-65% mhr
    - first time doing the class, I really enjoyed it. It was something different and took away some of the boredom being with other people in a class. A little awkward being the only guy, well not really... but ya will probably do spinning on Sunday's was thinking class was a little longer but started a bit late and stretched for a few at the end. Love the variety with resistance and intervals... never really got my heart rate passed 150 but wasn't look for a real intense cardio session anyway.
