tourniquet's progress

Well I'm going to start tracking my progress from today. I've had a few health issues recently so my focus has been a bit off - not gym related, but i've not been able to train consistently in the past.

GOALS: Bulk up, better definition, trim stomach fat, bigger legs!

Starting weight 149lbs. Pic to follow.

Wish me luck!

    TQ, with your 40 minute run, are you just doing a staeady pace on a treadmill?
    If so, then this is a long time to run and you will start to eat valuable lean muscle mass. Be careful here. I advocate HIIT cardio (thanks to MT!)

    You basically ate no protein from 4:15. That means you body will be without for 13.5 hours. Not good mate.

    The 40 min is just a marker. Usually, that means about 5 min warm up (walk, after stretches), 20 min HIIT (2 min 100%, 3 min 60%), 5 min warmdown. After weights I'll probably do a few minutes on the x-trainer. I'm doing the Reading half marathon in 6 months.. so I need to get my aerobic fitness up a lot. I know this will hinder my muscle gain, but I've made some gains even with this intensity.

    I guess I have plenty of time to get myself in shape though.. would you suggest cutting out so much steady cardio until the muscle gains are evident?

    add another whey protein later in the evening, after the one at 8:00? I forgot to mention that most of these are taken with water, except the one in the morning.

    Sarnie van didn't get called this morning, so I have no tuna sandwich.

    I really should have brought my own

    last couple of weeks have been going well. Have started reading a lot more about half marathon training and have decided that my weight gain plans are nigh on impossible! That side of things might need to stick on the backburner for a while, though the training will continue!

    Gonna be going for full on endurance training.. Wish me luck

    OK.. so it's been a long tome

    Well the Reading ½ marathon was yesterday - and I came in with a time just under 2h 06m [:P]

    Pretty pleased with the time, considering the injuries I've had over the training period (pulled hamstring, ankle sprain).

    So anyway.. this endurance stuff is great fun ;) Working on my strength at the gym as well, so all in all feeling pretty damned fit at the moment!!

    Anyway.. am going back to normal strangth training next week until the start of July (another run in August!)

    btw, anyone know how to break an addiction to Satay chicken??? [:P]
