Intro

Howdy. Been a reader for a long time..last year i went on a great 2 month cut that ended unfortunately to some mental health issues, but thanks to modern medical science, and prozac, im feeling for the first time i can remember in my 25 years of life, happy and motivated. And i have a pass to the gym.

So yeah, im excited to do more deadlifts, so what?

I need to nail down my diet before i do anything else..ive been going to the gym pretty much every day, spending about an hour doing a little cardio and some random lifts, really just feeling out this new gym...it was built last year and has tons of stuff in it.

My biggest flaw in dieting is that i sometimes stop eating, and i know that is no good for anyone. It takes a lot of motivation to eat every 3 hours. I just have to get into the swing of it again. Last summer i was taking down 3 shakes and 3 meals every day, and feeling great.

I plan to focus on my core lifts, Bench Press (actually, DB press), Squat, and Deadlifts. I also plan on working my traps, delts, and back also with a few additional lifts. Hell, im probably going to do more than i schedual every day anyways, but i want to focus on my main lifts and then just let the bricks fall where they may, so i dont feel constricted or hassled by a set schedual of 10 aux. lifts.

More to come real soon.

Diet


Going to start with a cut, diet around 2500 cals. Im going to use www.fitday.com as i already have tons of custom values entered for the normal healthy foods i eat. I will spend a week using fit day then i will figure out exactly what my diet is going to do.

Foods:

Oatmeal
Eggs
Cheese (cottage and other)
Whey
Chicken (lots of it!)
PB
Wheat Bread
Brown Rice
Spinach
Green Beans
Some fruits (cant cut them out, you just gotta draw the line somewhere )
BBQ Sauce
Salsa
Whole Wheat pasta every now and then
and some other BS.

2 weeks into getting back into lifting, feeling great and ready to get serious now that im passed my "tune up" phase.

Im really into the idea of a revolving diet that i have read about from links from this forum, and to me, it makes sense. On the days you lift, eat a little bit more than your baseline cals, on the days you dont lift, you eat less. Simple to me.

I usually buy chicken breasts 6lbs frozen at a time and cook them up 2lbs at a time each. After i grill them, i cut them into roughly 50g chunks of chicken, and build my diet that way. I picked up 3lbs of fish, i love it anyways. When i eat my meals, i usually accompany it with big bags of frozen green beans and frozen spinach, dose it with olive oil right out of the nuker.

Im going to start on a cut diet, i have a goal to lose about 30lbs of non-muscle mass. I go all the way whenever i go to the gym, i take my pwo after each workout, i need to start taking my multivitimin every day. I eat a lot of fruit and a lot of fresh veggies, i have the resources to do what i need, so im going to do it. more to come

Im thinking some sort of 7 day split for this. I was also considering doing a full body work out every time and have a 9 day split, but we will see how this goes, and maybe for my first alteration a month from now ill try a full day and see if i can keep that going.

Had a nice workout yesterday:

DB Press, 40x10, 45x10, 45x6 (failure)
Shoulder Press, 65x10, 65x5 (shoulder started to hurt a bit, so i cut it off early)
Lat shrugs, 60x10, 60x10, 60x10, each with a static hold at the end
rear lat shrugs 60xa few, mostly just a long static hold to finish it off
Flys, 15xwhatever, needed to use more weight and have an idea of what i want to do before i do it again. I plan on doing these more, i could have done a lot more weight to get a better workout, but i was just testing the waters.

Great workout thanks to the deadlifts..by the time i got to the lats, i was huffing and puffing so hard, i did a few reps and had to throw in the towel. Pretty good for my 2nd day into this schedual, only way to go now is up.
