      Bottomed out my squats today. Never thought I'd be able to. My hamstrings made contact with my calves, can't get no lower. Very happy about this. Didn't think I'd ever get there.

      But woah it's way harder. More comfortable than when I was stuck at parallel but can't do near the same weight. Like starting over again.

      Operation 3500 calories a day starts tomorrow...I weigh 190 lbs right now and my target #'s will be 3500 cal's/ 481g carbs / 78g of fat / and 219 g protein

      This is the meal plan tomorrow

      1st Breakfast
      better oats 1 package
      1 banana
      -------------------------------------
      2nd breakfast is my super death shake (all out of babies chilledman sorry)
      1 Tbsp PB
      1 cup blueberries (frozen)
      1 scoop strawberry whey
      1 cup strawberries (frozen)
      1/2 avocado
      2 cups 2% milk
      1/2 container (15tbsp) of pure egg whites

      1 cup plain oatmeal w/ a skeet skeet of honey
      ------------------------------------

      Brunch
      1 scoop of whey w/ water and 1 tbsp of natty PB
      1 banana
      2 turkey sammiches on whole wheat w/ mustard lettuce no mayo

      ------------------------------------------
      lunch
      1 cup rice
      salmon filet
      salad (2 cups baby spinach w/ balsamic vinegar and olive oil)
      2 tuna sammiches on whole wheat 1 tbsp of mayo each

      -------------------------------------------

      Dinner
      2oz whole wheat pasta w/ 1/3 cup home made sawz
      8 oz grilled steak
      1 cup leafy greens

      and a late night snack of 1 cup oatmeal w/ another skeet of honey

      gonna be pretty close to the same thing every day except dinner will change and the lunches will vary a bit...Trying to hit 6 days a week w/ this and 1 cheat day (where I eat all these other meals but also splurge on one meal of whatever the hell I want)

      Trying to keep the fat intake low so I don't get too much chubbier than I already am but I know it's inevitable. I'm ready to stop being a skinny/fat boy.

      eating fat doesn't make you fat. Eating carbs will make you fat and you have a crapload of carbs in that diet.

      good....I friggin hate eating all of those carbs...

      If you guys don't mind what would you change the carb intake to and what would you up the fat up to?

      Competed in the CT open yesterday. Made all three of my snatches and set a 5kg PR. Made my opening CJ, missed the jerk on my 2nd attempt because I got a little careless and hit myself in the chin lol, and then came out with the same weight for my 3rd and made it easily. Apparently there was only one other person in my weight class and he bombed out, so I won lol.

      Not bad for my first weightlifting meet.

    17. 08-06-2012 10:50 AM #1277

      85/110 in the 105+ so nothing at all to write home about. I'm dealing with a pretty severe shoulder impingement and possible partial tear in my biceps tendon so that makes snatching and jerking difficult. Prior to the meet I hadn't totaled in probably 12 weeks. I felt like I could have cleaned probably 130, but with my shoulder I don't think I could jerk it.

      Not exactly true both fats and carbs are necessary and eating fats while intaking carbs that spike your insulin levels is really when you store the fat. However I would tone down the carbs an increase the protein even if this is a bulk diet..

      Did several Farmer's Carries with 160-170. Course is 60 feet (the parking lot painter recently set up 10 yard hash marks - very cool!)

      The "bigger boys" are doing them with 200-240. I simply cannot make it all 60 feet with that, and it feels like my back is going to break. The real trick is keeping my shoulders back, in which I have a weakness.

      increasing protein is easy..I can handle that. As far as toning down the carbs eating those 4 sandwiches today was like a friggin torture method. If I could use the same meat on one sandwich that would cut down on some carbs and also to kick out the oatmeal at dinner. I'm going to have to make up calories in some way though..

    23. 08-06-2012 01:08 PM #1283
      Evol.. Tell me your goals with this 3500 cal diet and I can help you out or atleast show you what I would do... I actually have a pretty good 3500 cal - bulk diet bookmarked on here somewhere , I'll try to pull it up

    24. 08-06-2012 01:13 PM #1284
      Here's the 3500 cal diet I use when bulking but this is built for a 200lb male around age 25 with a good workout regimen... Me being slightly heavier I up the total cals to almost 4000


      Meal 1: Pro/Carb

      8 Egg Whites, 1 Scoop Of Whey Protein, 1 cup oatmeal

      50g protein / 54g carbs / 5g fat



      Meal 2: Pro/Fat

      Lean Ground Beef, ¼ cup swiss cheese, green veggies

      55g protein / 2g carbs / 20g fat



      Meal 3: Pro/Carb

      Chicken Breast, 1 and a half cup Brown Rice

      55g protein / 64g carbs / 3g Fat
      **Disclaimer: Meal 3 can be a pro/fat meal if you are ultra sensitive to carb intake.


      Meal 4: Pro/Fat

      2 Cans of Tuna, 1 Tbsp Full Fat Mayonnaise, Veggies

      60g protein / 2g carbs / 13g Fat



      Workout


      Meal 5: PWO Nutrition

      2 Scoops Whey Protein / 80g of Dextrose

      40g protein / 80g carbs / 0g fat



      Meal 6: PPWO

      Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast, ½ cup Brown Rice (Measured Uncooked)

      50g protein / 70g carbs / 3g fat



      Meal 7: Pro/Fat

      Lean Protein of your choice, 2 Tbsp Natural Peanut Butter
      50g protein / 5g carbs / 18g fat



      Meal 8: Before Bed

      3 Scoops of Whey Protein, 1.5 Tbsp. Flax Seed Oil

      60g protein / 3g carbs / 21g Fat


      That turns into approximately 420 grams protein, 250 grams Carbs, and 83 grams of fat. This is roughly 3500 calories

      Donuts are what grow when you plant cheerios in the garden...Totally natural dude

      And thanks for that meal plan I'm going to use that as a guideline...it looks much more manageable to me. My goals are to simply bulk up/get stronger not so much for body building reasons but because I want to lift heavy **** over and over and reap the benefits from it as naturally as I can.

      Evol how much do you weigh? And how much do you want to weigh?

      I'd like to do a serious bulk this winter too. Haven't done that since I was 19, but back then it was not a healthy bulk. Just ate whatever I wanted. I gotta figure out a meal plan for around 3000 cals.

      I actually agree with Chilledman. Read up on backloading, donuts are perfect for it.

      Just ran 2 miles at a pretty fast pace, non stop. Feeling really good. I've been lifting for a few good years but I havent ran over a mile since highschool. I'm probably gonna start doing this just for sh1ts.

      Yep 3 days a week I squat....I'm doing the SL 5x5 program (I've been doing it since Feb of this year)

      I've been putting on weight slowly but I just want to eat enough to maximize the work I'm doing and to help my body recover.

      On that note..had a terrible squat day this morning. I don't know what it was exactly that caused this there are a few things that probably added up to it.. but I went in after a week off and tried to start where I left off w/ 250lbs for 5x5 and it felt like it was 500....

      Meagered out a 3,3,2 and called it quits because my form was going to **** and I felt like I was going to drop it....
      Bench and rows were perfectly fine 185/160 for 5x5

      I usually drink creatine/bcaa's on a regular basis but wasn't drinking it at all for my week off so I'm not sure if that had any effect today. I also was a dumbass and went w/ some friends yesterday after work to try some snatches/overhead squats/cleans...I didn't do anything heavy I was just trying to learn. So it may be possible that I burned my legs out a bit more than I had realized.

      Anyway I'm going back in on thursday and trying 250 again. If it still feels like a mack truck I'll drop 10% off and go back up again.
