  1. Take it really easy the first week or two or you'll burn yourself out and not want to come back. Do only a little weight and focus on your form.

    The half vegetables thing is not working out. I just eat what I can of what I've been eating already. Last Saturday was a short ride (23.5mi) because of the heat AND because of running over glass and ruining my tire.. that sucked. Maybe 1000 calories on that ride. This week: Monday: 500 cal cardio, lift for abs and forearms mixed in Tuesday: 1250 cal cardio, lift for chest and tri's before cardio Wednesday: 750 cal cardio Thursday: 1000 cal cardio, lift for back and bi's mixed in No bike ride this Saturday, celebrating my friends bday instead. Almost all cardio is on elliptical at 10/20 resistance

    Thursday 5/23: normal workout with a little bit of interval running/walking for 100 cal Saturday 5/26: 43 mile bike ride with light hills, 1650 feet of ascent. 2063 cal according to my app Tuesday 5/29: 400 cal on elliptical for 33 mins, short 1st half of workout, interval 9.5-10 mph run/walk for 100 cal, short 2nd half of workout, 12 mins of 15% incline at 2.5/3mph for 120 cal Today 5/30: 530 cal on elliptical for 45 mins 3700 for this week outside of lifting. I don't have a clue how much I burn during the lifting so I'm keeping those calories in the back of my head. But my goal is at least 500 calories on the 4 gym days and 2500 on the 1 bike day. That way if I miss a day or come short on a couple, I'm still at 4000 cal/week outside of lifting. The ultimate goal is to get my stomach fat from 14mm to 6mm while losing as little muscle as possible. Lets see how far I get after 3 weeks. I started at 175 (my scale) and now am at 172.5. Oh ya, guess I'm changing the diet a little too.. half vegetables/salad for my meals. Not happy about that.

    Rode a metric century on Saturday, had a terrible sinus infection Sunday through yesterday, and felt well enough to go to the gym today. I finally broke the 100lb dumbbell mark on the flat bench for all 4 sets of 5. Almost fell off the bench on the very last rep but I made it without the help of my spotter. Even crazier, I was doing cable flyes and got a minor cut from the coupler grazing my upper arm. On the last set, I put it to more weight than I've ever done and felt the blood drip down my arm. My friend couldn't help but laugh cause it looked pretty ridiculous coming from such a small cut haha As for my weight, I should be a few more pounds than what I really am. 2 weeks ago I got super drunk and had a 3 day hangover and consequently lost about 7 pounds. I had a cup of wheaties and half of a dinner over the entire 3 days with a minimal amount of water throughout the hangover. Gained almost all of it back during the week. Then because of the sinus infection, my appetite went down and my top teeth hurt so much that I was never in the mood to eat more than 2 bowls of cereal on Sunday through Tuesday so I lost a few pounds there. Currently I'm 175.5lbs but found out my cheap home scale is exactly 4lbs under so 179.5 I guess. I think tomorrow will be my last day of training hard for gaining weight. Next week will probably be the start of the running for fat loss. I'll try a few weeks of that.

    This new plan is working very well. I weight myself right now and I'm at 177.5. The lifting is intense tho. Many times I can't finish a full exercise without his help on the last 2 or 3 reps because the weight is so much. The great part is he's all about form so he'll stop me if I'm doing it wrong and correct me. We get on the treadmill for about 10 mins before and after the workout too. I'll keep this up until after next week ends then focus on losing body fat. I'll keep doing intense workouts but I expect to lose a lot of strength because I'll probably be running a lot. I'm hoping to be around 183 before I shift gears, then lose about 5-10lbs of mostly fat or however much it takes (within reason) to get to under 10% fat or whatever I'm comfortable with. I HATE running.

    Guess I haven't updated this in a while. Hellraiser training sucked. It was really boring and I hate doing hi reps with little weight. I did that for about 6 weeks, then went to my usual 4 sets of 5 reps. When on the hellraiser training, I went to Arizona for a week. I ate like crap and only went to the hotel gym once and lost 3 pounds to 169 from 172. Finally I'm back to 170 and am about to start a new plan with a friend that's been lifting for years. He convinced me that water is really important so this last Monday I have a new goal for myself- drink a gallon of water every day before I drink any soda. This isn't the strictest goal ever.. if my buddies go out for drinking then I'll have a couple beers if I've had enough water for the day. Plus I have a higher protein intake now so all of this combined should really help. After 4 weeks, I'll probably start a plan to get the body fat down as low as I feel comfortable with. The last plans weren't a complete waste tho, I can't CAN comfortably do 90lb dumbbells of the flat bench now for all 4 sets of 5.

    new plan, still gaining little by little. Hell raiser training or whatever it's called. My partner wants to switch exercises after 4 weeks even tho the plan calls for 12 weeks of the same exercises.. I agree. She's had a trainer before and knows more about this whole deal I think

    So I stopped the 3500 cal/day diet after the first full week of January and have been on a 'eat smart and kinda healthy' diet for lack of a better name. I wake up a little earlier to eat breakfast- a bowl of cheerios or a bagel with cream cheese about 3 servings of nuts/trail mix or 1 serving of granola for a snack at work throughout the day lunch is either carb emphasized on workout days or well balanced on off days. In either case, I try and get comfortably full. I try and eat a small snack before the workout but this isn't a big deal to me because the snack at work keeps me happy after workout dinners are protein emphasized and always follow a protein shake. Off day dinners are well balanced and enough to make me comfortably full No more laying in bed being uncomfortably full, no constant eating, no constant cooking. A good fit I think. Best part is I'm up 3.5# putting me at 168.5#. I also changed the workout midway through January. I'm 3 weeks in, have another 3 weeks to go before I change it again. It's basically a burnout of each muscle group. 1 exercise for each muscle group, drop the weight after each set, rest about 10 seconds, do as many reps as possible on the 4th set to reach fatigue. This routine is a lot faster than my normal routine so I get home with plenty of time to eat a good dinner before bed at 9:30-10pm. I might keep this up for longer than the normal 6 weeks per routine, but probably not too much longer because I think this is a definite contributor in the weight gain.

    I finally did it- 80lb dumb bells on incline and flat without hurting myself. But I'm stopping the 3500 cal diet. I didn't enjoy it, I was constantly eating and thinking about the next meal and had trouble falling asleep because I was so full before bed. Most importantly it was VERY frustrating to see that after a full week of sticking to the diet and getting as much as my suggested daily servings as I could, I had LOST a half of a pound. I'm just going to have more fruits vegetables and try to eat 3 good meals a day with a snack here and there. If I was the weight I started at before the diet, I probably would have quit too. I was looking for at LEAST a half pound gain to stay on, hoping for a full pound after a week of it. But lose a half pound? Get real. The it's not worth that kind of effort with those results.

    After taking a week off from the gym from being sick, I started the new diet yesterday- 3000-3500 calories/day of fresh or 'healthy' (*shutter* ) food. The hardest part will be breakfast because I barely wake up with enough time to change my clothes for work. If I finish this dinner, I'll be at almost 3200 for the day and it's not as easy as I thought it would be. I have to eat like a whole plate full of food 4-5 times a day to make it.. I've been full all day! First world problem, right? I'm not going to post my daily meals or anything, but in case you were wondering the meals will be something like this: Breakfast: Cereal/oatmeal/bagel, banana, 16oz juice snack: nuts/trail mix/granola lunch: tuna sandwich with romaine, cheese and mayo, 1/2 can of beans, orange, 16oz juice snack: nuts/trail mix/granola pre-workout: soup, bread, milk post workout: protein shake w milk, chicken fillets with sauce, pear, romaine salad with dressing, 16oz juice dinner (non workout days): beef tips with onions and sauce, a full romaine and spinach salad with carrots, broccoli and other crap, milk, a banana, bread, whatever else to make 1000 cal before bed: yogurt I'm NOT giving up soda during work tho. This is a huge change and it's miles better than how I used to eat and I'm not about to become a health nut. I'll still eat out on the weekends with my friends, drink a ton of beer if we're in a drinking mood, I want this to be as enjoyable as possible so if I have to keep old bad habits to maintain this, fine. I hope this works, my first round of groceries should last me 1-2 weeks so I'll make the decision to stop or keep it going at the end of the 2nd week. The good news is that I had so much energy at the gym.. picked up right where I left off + some for a couple exercises. The bad news is that I can see Mondays and Wednesdays will be tough to be in bed at a decent hour. MWF are workout days and I usually get home from the gym at 9-9:30. I'm STILL eating dinner just because of prep time and because I'm a super slow eater. It's bedtime NOW

    Putting off 80 and 80 to next week. I guess I was in better shape last week compared to this week. Doing 3 sets of 15 now on roman chair for abs so that's nice

    Did 80's on flat and 75's on incline today wooooo! Next week I'll try 80 and 80 if I feel good about it. But I ran into a friend today and I did part of his workout.. intense tricep workout that got me so tired after we were done! I'm going to put it in my normal routine for this 6 weeks. But the main thing is I'm really going to try to improve my diet. I've got a little money saved up and I'm putting together a grocery list based on 3500 calorie diets to bulk up. I don't have a problem eating (lol who does?) it's just making the effort to squeeze in 5 meals a day. That and taking the time to make the meals.. It'll have to be like clockwork in order to make it happen while having them all spread out by 3-4 hours. Right now I eat maybe 1500 calories/day in 2 meals- lunch @ 1pm and dinner @ 9pm The plan: Breakfast @ 7:15am. Trail mix @ work before and after lunch- might have to get permission for that.. Lunch @ 1pm. Meal right after work @ 5:30pm. Dinner @ 9pm. Meal before bed @ 10:30-11pm.

    Last week marked a new 6 week interval but my goal of 170lbs is out of sight unless I pretty much double what I eat. I'm stuck at 164-166 and eat when I can until I'm full. If I had it my way I'd eat a few times during work plus lunch. But the upside is that I'm flat pressing 75's and incline 70's much easier than before. Think I'll try 75 and 75 sometime this next week.

    2 weeks of light cable curls and upright rows with 3 specific forearm exercises really helped. I wanted to test what I could do on the curls and was able to max out the machine with very minimal pain. Think I'll go back to light load til the end of the week, increase moderately for all next week then see how it goes after that. I was able to move up in weight for a few exercises too compared to when I started: Smith Machine Shrugs [65lbs each side] Cable machine palm up wrist curls [87.5lb] Isolated Chest press (individual arms) [115 each side] Isolated Chest press Decline [125 each side] Isolated Chest press Incline [100 each side] Cable Tri Pulldown [80] Cable Curl [50] - light load Cable Upright Row [50] - light load Dumb bell fly [47.5lb] kettle bell pronation [12lb straight curl bar palm down wrist curl [40lb] Dumb bell curl [42.5lbs] Lat Pull Down [240 3 sets, 255 1 set] Peck Deck Fly [200] Roman chair knees to chest [2 sets of 15] oblique crunches [2 sets of 15] Dips with no aid [3 sets of 10] Machine curls [150 (2 plates from max)] The bad news is I'm stuck at 164.5-166lbs. I've been fluctuating in that range for 3 weeks. I eat a lot better than I used to! I hope I'm not leveling out

    Bought a set of hand grips but they only hand medium tension at walmart. Whatever, I'll use them til it takes too much time to start feeling a burn. Last week I noticed I stopped gaining weight, this week too. I started eating suber subs from save mart now to be a little healthier than hamburgers. $8 for a super sub that makes 3 meals compared to $3-5 dollars for 1 burger meal is another benefit. And I started on glucosamine at the beginning of this week by recommendation from my friend.
