I figure everyone else does it, so I'd give it a go!

My gym is closed for graduation today (college campus) so I'll be putting some info up tomorrow - but here's some starting stats.

Phase: Bulking
Weight: 224lbs
Height: 5'9"
Bodyfat: ~13-14%

Maxes: (Attained/Estimated)

Squat - 495/500
Deadlift - 503/510
Bench - 330/335
Incline Bench - 265
Flat DB - 110x x 10
Incline DB - 105x x 8
SOHP - 210
DB Seated Press - 80s x 10
Full ROM Widegrip Pullups - 7 @ Bodyweight

I've listed what I consider to be the lifts that I want to see increase the most.

Goal:
Gain about 5-10 more pounds before the end of January and with it increase my maxes in all the above lifts. Even if just by 5 pounds.

Change in strategy, decided to start my cutting phase early. Right after Christmas.

This is mostly due to financial restraints (Eating 4500+ calories a day is expensive, lol), as well as the fact I'm eager to drop back down to single digit body fat.

So new goals:

Starting WT: 225lbs
Starting BF: ~14%

Goal WT: 208lbs
Goal BF: ~8%

Goal Timeframe: 12 Weeks (4 weeks 2lbs/wk, 4 weeks 1.5lbs/wk, 4weeks 1lbs/wk)

Focus: Maintain maxes.

Will post my first workout Saturday. College gym has weird hours during break. :[

Focusing on maintaining maxes. I'll make my first post the day after Christmas

I was able to make it in the gym for about 40 minutes before it closed today. I really need to start getting up earlier + I hate these winter break hours.

Anyways, this is all I got done today, but I'm really proud of the squat numbers as it's definitely a personal best for reps.

Weight: 224.2

Squats

405 x 5
405 x 5
425 x 5
425 x 4
425 x 4

GHR:

1x9 (Failure)

Sidetracked. I'm a cheerleader for ball state university and we're going to nationals, so after 4 hours of throwing girls in the air and holding them there (Sometimes two of them) I haven't really had the strength to workout.

We've got a couple days off though, so I got back in the gym.

My pullups are really coming along, I was proud of what I got yesterday as a few weeks ago my pullup deadhang max was only ~7.

6x5 Deadhang pullups
Pulldowns 150x10, 165x8, 180x6, 195x4
Cleans 245 5x1
Shrug machine 395(max) 3x15
EZ Bar Curls 35/side+bar x 10, 35/side+bar x 8, 35/side+bar x 6

Oh and weight was down to 218.8 this morning.

I also realized I used nightfall as my alias on this site and not jmstanton, would it be possible to get a mod to change this to "NightFaLL's log"?

So I've decided to start updating this regularly as I've started The Ultimate Diet 2.0 by Lyle Mcdonald (Even though he's an @$$h0l3, haha).

Weigh: ~209
Goal: ~200-204 (~8% bodyfat)

Yesterday I did this for my glycogen depletion workout (60% of 1RM 6x15 per body part - all done with between 30-60 seconds rest):

Flat bench + DB Row Superset:

Bench
190x15
185x15
185x15

DB Row
90s 3x15

Incline Bench + Pullup Superset:

Incline
145 3x15

Pullup minus 60lbs(My endurance is bad since I haven't done short rests in a long time, this will get better quick I'm sure)
3x15

Lateral Raises:
20s 3x15

Machine Pulldowns:

90lbs/side 3x15

Incline Machine Bench:

90lbs/side 3x15

Machine Low Rows:

90lbs/side 3x15

Machine Wide-Grip Bench:

90lbs/side 3x15


Notes:

This workout pretty much wrecked me, I haven't lifted above 8 reps in forever + I give myself ~3-5 mins rest between sets (maximal strength) so this was tough, felt nauseous the whole time.

Today is lower body depletion day, I may end up throwing up - the good news is that there's less lower body to do.

Diet yesterday was:

(Not counting breakfast, it was my last 'non diet meal')

~1000 calories (Probably close to 2k total with breakfast - sausage, biscuits/gravy, hashbrowns etc)

16oz chicken
1c Cottage Cheese
Protein Shake

~162g protein.


Today's diet is going to be:

1700 Calories
225protein
85carbs
50fat

I'm going to keep this updated, so you guys make sure if I don't update it to get on my case - I'm focused on hitting 8% before pool parties start happening. :)
