Thanks! I need to get some supersets and such in there. I have read and re-read the articles but I just haven't tried it yet. I guess my thinking is I haven't plateaued so I don't need to do them yet, keeping it simple.

Broccoli is good!! Eating it everyday wouldn't be a problem for me. It's just food like tuna and scrambled eggs I have problems with eating every day.

Good luck with your bulk Jenn! I'll definately be checking back to see your progress.

Hi Jenn,
Correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm not sure 2 tbsps of ea. malto/dextrose in your pwo shake are the measurements you want. If my numbers are right, 2 tbsp dextrose gives you about 28g carbs, whereas 2 tbsp malto gives you only 12.5g carbs. Not the 50/50 mix of carbs you are looking for.

V.

Holy cow, you are right. Thank you so much for pointing that out. Math is not my strong suit.

But the nutrition label is almost the same for both malto and dextrose. .5 c is 74g for dextrose and 75g for malto. I'm 144 lbs so I need 36g of each, right? Why does your number for malto seem so much lower?

Here's what I get from my labels:

dextrose - 1/3cup (80g) = 75g carbs
maltodextrin - 1/2cup (50g) = 50g carbs

I broke that down into tbsps and got:

dextrose - 1 tbsp (15g) = 14.1g carbs
maltodextrin - 1 tbsp (6.25g) = 6.25g carbs

Yes, according to The Window Of Opportunity article if you are bulking you want 5g carbs per every ten lbs of bodyweight which for you would be 72g carbs (36g each).

So about 36g carbs coming from dextrose would be 2 & 1/2 tbsps and about 36g carbs coming from maltodextrin would be 5 tbsp & 2 tsp.

Thanks, V. I'm going with my label for now. I am going to e-mail the co. and ask if it's correct.

Today was back, my youngest made that decision for me when he got up at 2:30 and couldn't go back to sleep right away. I couldn't leave him alone, poor sweetie had a nightmare.

BB pullovers-2x 10 40# 8 45# 6 50#
BB rows-2x 12 65# 10 70# 8 75# 6 80#
deads-2x 10 110# 8 115# 6 120#
t-bar rows-2x 12 75# 10 80# 8 85# 6 90#
Wide grip pullups- 3 x 2 then negatives **

The pull-ups just didn't happen today. I got 3 sets of just 2 in, last week I was much stronger. I am not used to doing back the day after chest and my tri's were still sore from yesterday.

The good thing is I haven't felt this sore in a while so maybe my body needed the mix up.

So far today's menu/times are wacky
Menu
2:30 1 scoop whey 2 TBSP maltodextrin
4:30 1.5 scoop whey, 36g malto/36g dextrose
6:30 .5 c. oatmeal
10:30 1 c cc and handful almonds
13:00 1 TBSP PB 1 slice 7-grain bread
14:00 1 c broccoli 1 TBSP parm cheese (wasn't hungry b4)
15:00 1 TBSP PB

Probably tuna and a sweet potato later. I've got carb-itis today and all I want to do is sleep. I can't believe I was messing up with the malto-dex for these few weeks. Doh, live and learn.

Yesterday's eating was horrible. I ended the day with some tuna and mayo, and a protein shake before bed.

Today was cardio. I was supposed to do ABs but I will tackle them tomorrow. My motivation is starting to wane. I need to get back on track.

Jenn,
Don't worry about yesterday, it's over. Just put it behind you and forget about it. One bad day isn't going to hurt you so don't let that one day cause you to throw everything away. Try and keep your spirits up and stay focused. You know you can do it.
