View Full Version : Becoming A Giant - Time to Bulk

Been on here for almost a year now,already went through one cutting journey in the spring to summer with great success. Unfortunatley as I started my post summer bulk I suffered a minor set back as I aggrivated an old football shoulder injury,nothing serious but it prevented me from doing any shoulder work for a good month. After the aggrivation of the injury, life got in the way of my goals as a new girlfriend entered my life. (currently engaged) She didnt dissaprove of my training but as any new couple does we spent most of our free time together, seriously limiting my gym time. Next on the list was diet. My diet wasnt exactly junk food, but it wasnt as clean as I normally like to keep it. Eating out every weekend and popcorn at the movies is not my idea of solid nutrition. I adapted to what was happening and went on a three day split in the gym,thus leaving me with 4 days off from the iron, more than enough to keep the GF happy. Or at least I thought. The three day split tapered off to two day a week marathon sessions,then eventually I got discouraged and took a whole month off. I arose from that month off with a new found motivation and fire in my eyes for the iron. I have been on auto pilot since i finished my cut,but now its time to get huge.

Height- 6'00
Current weight- 195
Goal Weight- 215

Supps.

Pak,Pump,M-stak,Torrent

In the gym I will be doing a 4 daysplit. It will look like this:

Monday- OFF
Tuesday- Chest and Biceps
Wednesday-Shoulders/Traps
Thursday-Legs
Friday-Back
Saturday-Off
Sunday-Off

The three days off should give me enough rest to recover for the next week. I gave legs and back thier own days because i really like to concentrate on completley destroying those two bodyparts.

Diet- A rough guideline of what I will be eating

6:30- Protein shake
7 Am- 4 whole eggs, 4 egg whites, bowl of oatmeal,1 bananna,pak
8 Am- Pump,M-Stak
11 Am- Torrent (PW)
12 Pm- Large Chicken Breast, 2 cups Brown Rice. Broccoli
2 PM- Ground Beef 2 cups Brown rice,asparagus
4 PM- 2 cans of chunk light tuna,sweet potatoe
6 Pm- Protein Shake(52 Grams)
8 PM- Natty PB on slice of whole wheat bread
10 PM - Bowl of cottage cheese,with almonds and strawberries

I will adjust the food intake as nedded depending upon my results. Looking forward to sharing my results with everyone. Time to strap in and get ready for the ride.

Been really busy lately so havent been able to post any updates about the bulk. The first couple weeks of it have passed by very succfesfully. Im getiing all my calories in easily most days,while at times its a struggle to choke down those last couple of meals. Im taking in 3900 calories a day. The ratios are 50% protein 30% carbs and 20% fat. Ive gained 3 pounds in the last two weeks ,not monumental but deffinately a positive sign. For me life is all about goals. Some big and some small. To reach those larger goals you first have to get the smaller ones completed. So for starters my small goal is to hit 200 lbs by the end of the week. Im really hitting the gym hard as usual and seeing some awesome gains. In addition to the balls out workouts I do,the supplemental combination of Pak,Pump,M-Stak and Torrent is certainly what its craked up to be. My energy in the gym is through the roof and my pumps have been incredible. My fiancee told me yesterday that my shoulders were looking significantly larger than normal,and my chest looked fuller. Thats something I could never get tired of hearing. Its still early in the bulk but I dont appear to be adding too much bodyfat, I think my gain is striclty in lean mass. Heres a sample leg workout from last week since I didnt post any.

Squats- 135x15(wu)245x10,275x8,295x8,305x5,310x2(PR)
Leg Press- 270x12,360x10,450x8,500x5
Leg Extensions- 4 sets at 150, on last set immediatley dropped weight to 110 and did ten reps,then a static hold for one minute on the last rep.( Hurt like hell)
Lying Leg curls-4x10
DB Lunges across gym floor- 3 sets with 45 lbs DB( almost fell over on these)

Huge pump in the ol wheels. Its leg days like this that make me love the iron even more.


I had two cheat meals this week. One being one of those huge Mcdonalds b-fast with the eggs saugsage and pancakes.The other was a pizza buffet. In which I crushed a huge plate of pasta, and had 4 or 5 pieces of pizza. Not too bad. Looking forward to Tuesday and the chest workout.

Pretty good back day. Trying my damndest to get that 400 pound deadlift.Diets staying solid and the bulk is going well. I weighed in this morning at 199. Almost reached my weekly goal.I will deffinatley shatter that weekly goal by Friday. Christmas is around the corner and im looking forward to spending time with the fiancee and the family. I have to work Christmas day so I'll miss out on the great Christmas feasts,so ill be at work cooking my chicken rice and lean beef for the holiday. At least I have the day after Christmas off. The gyms closed on Christmas Day so im gonna hit it up early in the morning and get my shoulder work in. Then the day after Christmas Ill hit the legs.

I crushed two huge pieces of Pumpkin roll today. Thankfully this is a bulking journey so I dont feel as bad.It was some damn good stuff too. haha. Didnt get to do shoulders today,the family decided to open presents today since I had to work evening turn today and evening and midnight tommorrow.Not the best of holidays so far,but im getting through it allright. The day after Christmas Im off so ill be doing a two session training split. Morning will be shoulders,traps,and calves then evening will be legs. Looking forward to it should be an interesting change of pace for the day for me.

Did arms today,felt pretty good

Close grip BB press- 4x215
Skull Crushers- 4x10, dropped weight and went to failure on last set
Pressdowns-4x 10,10,8,5
Overhead DB extensions- 3x10- 75lbs

Still eating big and getting my macros in. Almost finished with my M-Stak cycle,one more week left. Im deffinately impressed with the effectiveness of it. Of course without the hard work ive put in im sure my gains wouldnt be as big. I'm weighing in around 205. almost 210 at night. My squats have went up tremendously along with my deads and bench, and pretty much every other lift. I can visually see a big difference in my traps and shoulders. Its still a work in progress but im making some good steps in the battle

With all the things ive got on my plate right now like helping my girl plan a wedding(which I have no fucking clue how to do) searching for a house,and working I dont have much time for sleep. I usually log seven or eight hours except on Sunday when I work a fucked up midnight then evening turn swing shift. But today I got home from work and couldnt go to bed because I had to meet the realtor to look at a house we were considering buying. So im running on about three hours sleep right now and dont get off work until ten. I try to get my rest in on my three days off I have on the weekends but i usually end up staying up late playing xbox then waking up to the sound of my girl wanting me to cook breakfast at eight in the damn morning. This has to change. Sleep is one of the most important aspects of recovery and its the only area im lacking in right now. Hell maybe ill take Saturday and lock myself in a dark room and just sleep all damn day. Chest and Biceps tommorow

Thanks bro. Yea im sticking to it pretty well. I have kinda put some changes into slightly. I make sure to at least get 4 whole meals a day and three shakes. I never let my tank get empty. If im hungry and still have an hour or so til my next meal, ill slam a shake. Hunger is not a good sign on a bulk. I like to mix chicken with lean beef and steak.Right now im eating at least a steak every day with two or three of the other meals being lean ground beef. I still use chicken every now and then but I find the beef is packing on the mass like crazy.

Got some good rest this weekend along with a couple cheat meals. Lots of carbs for the coming week. Cant wait to hit the iron on Tuesday. Im considering adding maybe one or two days cardio. Not too much just 15 or 20 minutes on two or three days. Just to experiment a little,never really been a fan of cardio on a bulk but im gonna give it a try. Off Monday then Tuesday brings me to chest and bis.

Overall pretty good back session. New Pr on the deadlift, i feel like i couldve done a couple more reps but i wasnt really trying to see what my max was and the grip slipped. I think sometime next week im going to do a max session just to get an idea on my numbers. Time to shovel down some ground beef. Later

The bulk has been going really well but with a possibility of a better job oppurtunity at another fire department im going to have to put the bulk on hold and start throwing in alot of cardio. The physical test for the job is the CPAT and it mimics the duties performed by firefighters at an actual fire. It requires alot of endurance and cardiovascular capabilities, something that is not covered during a bulking phase. So for now im going to change things up and do some low weight high reps and the dreaded cardio. Heres the plan....

Sunday-off
Monday-Off
Tuesday- Chest and Bis Intervals on the treadmill for 10 minutes
Wednesday- Back and Tris- 30 minutes moderate cardio
Thursday- Shoulders/Lats- Interval cardio
Friday- Legs- 30 minutes of light cardio
Saturday- 60 minutes of moderate to light cardio.

Im going to keep the rep ranges high at around 10-15 and the weight moderate. Cardio sucks but it will be nice to see my six pack again.

Ill post the diet tommorow

Cardio has been the story of my life here recently.Me and my buddy have been getting up at 7 AM every morning and hitting the cardio hard. we do 3 days of 30 minute sessions on the treadmill and 3 sessions of sprints at the track with a 20 pound weight vest on. The weighted sprints are probably the hardest thing ever but weve gradually built ourselves upo to where we can do 20 40 yard sprints with the vest on. As far as weights go ive kinda shifted gears. A friend of mine got us an old truck tire to work out with.we drag it push it pull it and beat it until were worn out. Its deffinately different but its getting me in serious shape. Not sure what its doing for my strength but ill let you know
