Hello. Thought I'd start a journal to keep me motivated. Ive decresed my weight Im using on all my lifts by quite a bit-the reason is perfect form. Im getting a complete stretch and contraction with a tight squeeze at the top. My program looks like this:
Monday and Friday
Bench press 3x10
Wide-grip pulldowns 3x10
Behind the neck barbell press 3x10
Barbell curl 2x10
Barbell wrist curls 2x10
Leg press 3x10
Dumbell bench press 3x10
Upright barbell row 3x10
Alternate dumbell curl or chins 2x10
skull crushers 2x10
reverse curls 2x10
Im not going to count calories yet-Im just going to eat more and keep eating untill I see a gain in weight. If you think it would help to count, let me know. Im pretty sure I could rip through 3,500 calories so I really need to think of eating as a full time job and maybe hit somewhere between 4-4500.
My height is 5'7 or 5'8..and my weight as of now fluctuates between 150-152. My goal weight is 175. This bulk cycle will not end untill I hit that. Also, I lost about 50 pounds on the benchpress because i quit doing it(muscle memory) and now im concentrating back on it-yet with perfect form..no partial movements..no bouncing..nice, controlled reps. Im concerned with the weight im benching ONLY if its in perfect form.
I will be eating all day for 2 main reasons..
1) Its the only way I can get enough calories throughout a day
2) Studies have shown that eating fewer meals can decrease LBM because of the myoproteins being catabalized. ( I learned that in these forums, thankyou)
Throughout my program, I will be increasing the sets.
