Alrite everyone (please tell me if im doing this journal wrong as its my first time!!)
Been a member of this site for a year a bit now but never looked into doing a journal I just used to come on for nutritional advice and training tips! Having been training seriously now for around 2 years mainly focusing on hypertrophy/ strength training (5-8 reps) due to my body type being ecto/seismorph I was looking to gain weight and size by using these types of training and also eating 6 meals a day cramming as much food in me as possible!!
Here are my stats as they stand today: Profile Stats
Height: 6ft 1
Weight: 14st 2 lbs
BF%:16 Body Stats
Top of leg:24.5"
Waist:35" Lifting Stats:6-8 Reps
Starting as of tomorrow this will be my new cutting diet I am taking the traditional route as to cut out alot of the carbs in the evening meal and also reduce them in the other meals I will be eating throughout the day. Also snacking on nuts and fruits and eating plenty of red meat aswell as chicken, tuna etc
Mug of green tea
Quark, Natural yogurt, berries, half a tspoon honey
Pre work out:
Handful of mixed nuts, 2 slices wholemeal toast, natural peanut butter
Post work out:
Protein shake, HMB
Red meats, chicken, tuna large handful of wholemeal pasta/rice, vegetables
Oat cakes with cottage cheese and spinach, Fruit smoothie
Prawn stiry fry, small handul of noodles, green tea
Also throughout the day I will be sure to drink at least 4 litres of water and eat 5-6 piecies of fruit. Rough Idea of my Training plan (will be looking to do 3 sets of 12-14 reps) Monday AM
Flat bench press
Incline DB press
Flat cable flys (drop set)
Standing cble flys PM
Interval weighted vest run 20 minutes Tuesday

Usually at weekends I may make up circuits at the gym or attend a circuit at kickboxing to keep me active!

O and the protein I am using is Myprotein total protein mixed with HMB will be using this twice daily after work out and when i feel necessary!
