Consuming baked white potatoes instead of sweet potatos post workout allows me to capitalize fully on the 3 hour post workout window of opportunity. If another meal is not consumed within 30 minutes of the simple carbohydrate and protein meal, blood sugar and insulin levels will crash! You will be right back to where you started, a catabolic state! My diet is designed to take full advantage of nutrient and supplement timing. You'll notice the majority of my calories and carbohydrates are consumed within the hours around my workout as suggested in Paul Cribb's article, The Anabolic Nutrient Timing Factor: http://www.ast-ss.com/articles/article.asp?AID=77.
My first meal is designed to increase blood sugar levels and take advantage of the period of increased insulin sensitivity you experience upon waking. I eat Frosted Flakes because they are a high glycemic index carbohydrate that will elevate my blood sugar quickly, just like I want. Together the frosted flakes,milk, and protein make an awesome tasting combination that will increase nutrient transportation and shuttle protein into my muscles like crazy during this important time.

My weekend nutrition will vary slightly from what I follow during the week. I don't train on the weekends and therefore don't consume the post-workout meals as listed in the post above. My primary objective on the weekends is to consistently consume quality protein throughout the day. I also leave room to loosen up on the schedule a bit. On one weekend day I will follow this schedule :
Nutrient Ratios: approximately 2125 cals, 235g Protein, 210g Carbs, 40g Fat

Meal 1:
1 scoop ON Whey
1 serving Frosted Flakes
.5 cup skim milk

Meal 2:
1 Perfect Rx Meal Replacement
Creatine HSC

Meal 3:
3 oz. Chicken
6 oz. Green Veggies
1 Tbsp Golden Flaxseeds

Meal 4:
Detour Bar

Meal 5:
6 oz. Lean Steak
6 oz. Salad Greens
6 oz. Green Veggies
6oz. Sweet Potato

Meal 6:
1 Perfect Rx Meal Replacement
1 Tbsp Natural Peanut Butter

On the other weekend day I don't go crazy and stuff myself all day long but I do enjoy a good meal of whatever I want, some clean meals off my normal weekday schedule and a bite here or there throughout the day. I try to keep the total calories under control but still enjoy myself and satisfy my cravings. I want to be productive on the weekends but I also don't want to put too much pressure on myself. This allows for a little mental break so I can follow my nutrition 100% during the other 6 days of the week.

Goals for First 8 week lifting cycle:
Setting small short term goals is a great way to constantly work towards achieving the long term goals you want to achieve.In order to help me improve my daily performance, I will outline a list of goals and objectives I wish to accomplish during the week ahead and then review how well I did at reaching them.

1. Follow my nutrition and supplementation plans 100% 6 days a week.
2. Be smart with my weight selection so I am working effectively in the 4-6 rep range with great execution.(Max-ot style training)
3. Complete all scheduled cardio sessions with the proper intensity. (16 min Max-Ot style)
4. Focus on form and execution of every exercise.
5. Pay special attention to post workout nutrition and supplement timing.
6. Prepare for each training session the night before.
7. Keep my vision of what I want to create in mind at all times in the gym.

Current Stats: (As of Competition on April 24th)

This is the workout schedule that I will be following for the next 8 weeks. I can't wait to get back into the gym after this rest and recovery week. I will hit the weights with the same amount of intensity that I did pre-contest. I am excited to start lifting again because the last few weeks before the contest I felt extremely drained and lacked energy in some of my workouts. However, my weights only decreased slightly over the 17 weeks of contest prep. So now I am charged and ready to go and hit the weights so I can pack on that much needed mass so I can one day compete at the national level.

1. Squats....3 sets 4-6 reps (After warm-up)
2. Leg Press….2 sets 4-6 reps
3. Stiff Leg Deadlifts....2 sets 4-6 reps

Tuesday - Chest
Chest:

2. Barbell Rows....2 sets 4-6 reps
3. Cable Rows....2 sets 4-6 reps
4. Pull-ups....2 sets, each to failure

Hey, Holly. Nice journal! I love all the details.

That is great that you realize the importance of goal-setting. There are some fantastic articles in the Journal of Hyperplasia Research (blue tab above) that discuss that vital concept. You might find them interesting! [img]/forum/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]

Good luck with your bulk! Personally, I would try to clean your diet up to make your gains as lean as possible. Again, lots of great articles to read here about such strategies. [img]/forum/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]

This looks like a great plan. I'm interested in your nutrition strategies since they are a bit different than what is followed by lots of people at ABC.

What is your end goal (weight, bf) with the bulk?
