    BaWL§ Diet (NHE) / Training Journal

    Introduction –
    I am a 22 year old male, 6’1” and 240lbs @ ~20%. Until my calipers come in the mail, hopefully soon, I am guessing my bodyfat. I would call myself a pure endomorph, which has one hell of a time losing weight / fat. Part of the reason for me starting the journal, is to get peer critiques on my diet.

    UPDATE...1/28/02
    Calipers finally arrived...the measurements translated into a little less than my inital guess. On page 120 of the NHE book...I highly recommend it so far.

    Body Fat % - 18% @ 238 on 1/28/02

    Goals-
    Lose fat, maintain muscle, and get ripped

    Diet Plan-
    NHE Diet, the book is in the mail along with the calipers…as for now I am using this site as my source. I was previously on a keto diet so the metabolic shift phase can be skipped

    Training Plan-
    Monday – Back and Biceps
    Tuesday – Cardio and Abs (45 min, low intensity)
    Wednesday – Chest and Triceps
    Thursday – Legs
    Friday – Cardio (45 min, low intensity)
    Saturday – Shoulders and Abs
    Sunday – Cardio (1 hour, low intensity)

    **All training days will last under one hour to prevent overtraining**

    If I were you I would say something about following NHE in your subject of the first post of your journal. More people familiar with NHE would reply. Like BaWL§ NHE or something whatever. Anyway thats not important... now that I know youre following NHE I am going to frequent your journal.

    I can see that you havnt gotten the book yet. Rob recommends training EVERY other day. Or every 2 days. To otimize your body's natural anabolic hormones. For example I do this split.
    Sun- Rest
    Mon- Legs
    Tue- Rest
    Wed- Pull
    Thu- Rest
    Fri- Rest
    Sat- Push

    Really is working well for me so far. Well see what happens I guess. I have made some great progress on NHE. I am glad to see someone else giving it a shot and keeping a journal. How old are you and whats your height, weight, etc.

    Sh*t I didnt see your first post. My bad. Anyway my bad my bad. I am wondering is your goal fat-loss or what? Because you have to be careful you dont do the NHE Bodybuilding Plan.. which is a mass-plan.

    Tuesday – Cardio and Abs (45 min, low intensity)
    Wednesday – Chest and Triceps
    Thursday – Legs
    Friday – Cardio (45 min, low intensity)
    Saturday – Shoulders and Abs
    Sunday – Cardio (1 hour, low intensity)


    Rob recommends interval type cardio for optimal fat-loss. Personally I dont think that it matters too much. You might want to try and push, pull, legs routine. Thats what really has given me some big time strength gains etc. Hopefully youll experience the same while following NHE. Also Rob basically forbids counting calories, grams of protein, etc. He just states that NHE is a lifetime eating plan not a fad diet where you write down everything. Thats why its pretty obvious in my journal I dont keep track of all that. He simply says under ~20g carbs for the first week, then ~30-60g of carbs after that.. carb-up meals on every 3rd night and 4th night.



    Are you going to be taking any carb-up supplements?

    I plan on using the NHE for mainly fat loss.

    When you are using the split:
    Sun- Rest
    Mon- Legs
    Tue- Rest
    Wed- Pull
    Thu- Rest
    Fri- Rest
    Sat- Push

    Do you perform interval cardio on your off days? I noticed in your journal that you complete all your workouts within an hour. That is one reason why I chose the four day split inorder to break out shoulders and abs into there own day. I workout during the lunch hour.

    I plan on taking ALA 30 min prior to the carb-up. Would you suggest anything in addition to ALA?

    Thanks for the help.

    Yeah I am about to do my interval cardio now hehe just woke up. Anyway yeah on rest days I do 20 minutes of interval cardio on my stationery bike. 1 minute low level and then 1 minute high level pedaling very fast and hard. Works well I think.

    Anyway I take 600 mg. ALA and 3g of l-arginine (helps with glyogen compensation) 30 minutes before carb-up. Then I take 5g creatine + 5g glutamine peptides during the carb-up meal. This is all in my journal bro.

    Good luck with NHE.
