This is my first thread start, I hope I don't start off wrong right off the bat. I want to start a journey in order to get feedback from the members who can help me get on the right track. I have been reading and researching and understand that nutrition is just as important as training. I have been training steadily for about 2 years or so, still consider myself a newbie though. Anyways some stats: After starting my 8-5 three years ago, I started to notice how bad I was starting to look and feel. Started gaining weight, got up to about 210.
Since I have gotten as low as 175, currently at about 185, don't have a way to measure my bf (24%-27%) except for my electronic scale (which I know can't be too accurate). My goal is to get lean, ideally I want to bulk up a little more, but I think I should be building on a lean base when it comes to getting bigger.I am 5'7".
Started training around January last year, and even though there is plenty of room for improvement, I feel I have come a long way. I'll start by posting my training log/ food log. I really need help with my nutrition planning. I read the threads under diet, but feel lost in terms of getting started.
Going on a 4 day split right now: Back/Tri, Legs, Chest/Bicep, and Shoulders/Traps
I don't always do the training in the same order, but I try to do something like putting a day off in the middle, and leg day between two upper body days. (Kind of like Back, Legs, off, shoulders, chest). Monday was shoulders/traps, yesterday off, today back/tri.
Today's Training:
Back/Tri
Went to the gym after a Softball game so didn't do much of a warm up.
Walked @ 3.5 on the treadmill for 15 minutes.

So for the las week or so, I've been eating really crappy... My training has stayed about the same though. I'm making it a point to get it together ASAP. Today I am getting back to Muay Thai, and going to be talking to one of my buddies who's a trainer about putting together a meal plan I can stick to and prepare. I guess I find it so difficult because I have not started at all, I think I have the discipline to keep up with something once I get started... Will post this past week's training log tonight...

I would consider it agressive, then again I'm only a beginner and just learning about it, but you're not just waiting to counter all the time. You're timing combos and attacks.

1-animal pak
2-animal omega
3-animal flex
4- uni-liver (about 10-12 a day)
5-cr2 creatine ethyl esther
6-n*sh**gun pre

8- on whey pre and post
9- casein at bedtime

I can't wait to run out of the no stuff and cr2, I tried a sample of shock therapy/storm, and loved it! The store I get all my stuff at doesn't stock storm, so I'll have to order that.

Today I did the cardio before lifting while I waited for my workout partner for the day. 25 minutes incline @ 10... Putting in the work, Just gotta keep the diet in check and incorporate the Cuts as soon as I find a place that sells the new formula already. Might go by the store where I buy everything, maybe they moved the older ones already.
Open about tomorrow, Muay Thai...

Very nice, man. You do chest/bi and back/tri huh? How do you like that?
I like it to br honest with you. Feel like I can do more volume on each part this way. I switch between that and chest tri, back bi kinda deal. However, my next switch I want to get into something like I've been seeing in almost everyones journey: back, chest, delts, arms, legs. I gotta see how I map that out. Got a few life changing events on the way so that'll determine a lot. Moving in with my girl, baby on the way and probably swithing to a different gym (this'll let me try s new routine). It's been hard to try to get either of the guys I work out with to switch it up more than the push pull type of change I described above.
Hmm, sorry my answer was that long, I've been wanting to address that for a while. I'm open to suggestions actually. My main concern is basically i'm gonna be needed around the house more, so I'd like to get either a 3 or 4 day split going.

Nice workout today. The BB/DB superset must've been rough.

It's very reasonable to do a 4 day split and most people will tell you 5 is too much anyway. For a while I did Chest, Back, Delts/Traps, Legs (although I still lifted 5 days/week). I've recently added an arm day though and I'm liking that. I'll be on a 5/3/1 soon though which is 3 or 4 days a week. I would guess that a lot of programs are geared toward a 3 or 4 day per week gym schedule so maybe that would be better than a typical split. Just a few thoughts...

Cardio was in the am, 30 minute run/walk before going to work... Getting it in...

On a side note, was thinking of doing a split like:
-arms
-back
-chest
-delt/traps
-Either do a day just for wheelz, or include a different group with each of the previous days in order to try to run a 4 day split instead of 5, that would be a little hard for me.

I don't mind getting it in, don't get me wrong, I just got a little one on the way, moving, and a whole lot of other shit going on so I can't get in the gym as often as I'd like to. Think its worth mentioning that I'm throwing in some Muay Thai (kickboxing) classes on wednesdays. Thoughts/suggestions?

What's up brothers!? I'm back in here! I been doing as much as I can in terms of Iron time, finished moving and pretty much settled in. Baby boy is here and healthy, tons of fun/work/sacrifice, but at the end of the day it is all worth the effort.
Now to the matter at hand. I been getting a couple lifts in here and there with mscuillo. Awesome liftin partner for sure, he always got a plan and motivates the hell outta me. So this week is going to be an incomplete split as well, with the gym closing early today and closed tomorrow.
I'm gonna just start posting my log next week and take it from there. I am aiming to get a 4 split going, something like (back/bi,delts/traps,chest/tri,wheelz).
As I've mentioned before I am completely open to advice/suggestions, so please keep 'em coming. My diet is what really needs work, I'll begin posting those as well, and I'll be brutally honest with it. I'm pretty sure the reason I hadnt posted that before is because I know how bad it is. I'm gonna make every effort to prep my meals ahead, again, not to make excuses because I know others have even less time than I do, but I have a really hard time juggling my time between work, baby, and house work. Sorry for the long-winded post, that's all for now... 1

Try to get some more cottage cheese before bed too! It is a slow-acting casein protein and will be released through the course of the night; which will help anti-catabolism!! Usually a cup or so is good for an 8-hour sleep. It's not that heavy on the stomach either, so you can eat it with something else if you prefer!! Everything else looks good and I know you're putting the work in the gym too buddy!! Wheels tomorrow!!

Do the cottage cheese with one scoop of protein; either mixed in or separate. That will give you enough pro before bed and the benefits of the cottage cheese!!

Keep doing what you're doing!!! Look how much progress you've had in the last 3 weeks!! Actually, both of us have made significant improvements since we started crushing it together!! Bring your camera next week and we'll get some delt footage as well!! Just make sure to keep pounding your protein and good carbs!! Once that Stak kicks in, you should see more changes as well!! Lots of H20 throughout the day as well will help your muscles get fuller and rounder!! But, judging by the food you're eating, the lifts you're having with me, and the progress you're making...you're on the right track!!! Just keep staying as consistent as possible!!

So I've been trying to figure out an easy way to import my meals without having to retype it all... Formatting comes out crazy otherwise... I'll try this, if not, I'll just post a link to a shared document at the end of each week...

Took the day off iron yesterday, went for a run for about an hour with wifey though, pretty glad, it was nice weather out too... Meals are still on point, I'll put up a link tomorrow for the week's work so that I can get some feedback from you guys... Here's the squat video we got last time I did legs with mscuillo.

So I had to go into work today, after running around and doing errands with them fam. After looking on their website, rushed to the LA Fitness location that seemingly closed the latest in the weekend, only to find out it closed like every other location. Was able to finish up though, just no cardio and had to superset Tri pressdowns and skull crushers... Here's how it went:
Standing MP (95,105,105,105) (12,8,8,6,4)
Machine MP (90,110,140) (16,17,10)
Standing side laterals (20,25,25) (15,15,15)

So I gave up on trying to share my meal log from dailyplate, but basically I'm keeping it clean, and taking in an average of about 2300 cals. Last night I smashed back, then went home and prepared my meals for today something along the lines of Rage's outline. Only had enough for 1 day, will have to make more in order to pack a couple days in advance. Here's how back went:

BW pullups (13,12,10,9)
Deads (135,185,235,235) (15,10,8,8)
Cable pulldowns (115,130,145,160) (15,12,10,8)
Reverse grip pulldown (130,145,160) (10,10,10)
T-bar row (90,90,100,100) (8,10,10,10)
Straight Arm Pull down (7,8,9,8) (10,10,10,11)

Followed it with 30 minutes cardio, geez the treadmill is so damn boring... I easily went for a run outside the other day, an hour went by painless, but damn the treadmill is agony.

Shiiiet I don't even wanna imagine...

Went over to Sunset Place to get the lift in with Mike, we did the delt work together and he stuck around and convinced me to finish off the rest of my work. It's hard for me to get in the gym 5 days so I'm glad he talked me into throwing in tri's... Here's how it went:

Once again no cardio, had to pick up the little one after the gym, and I hate rushing my lifting. I'm guessing I can just go for 3 cardio sessions a week, so maybe one day after weights, then two of my days off the gym.

What's up people? It's been a while, I've never stopped lifting but it's been really hard for me to get on here and post my work. I took a couple of weeks off the iron, sick the first, family in town the second, but I'm officially back in the game and the goal is still the same... GET STRONG !! I figure that body fat I'm always trying to get down will take care of itself as long as I eat correctly and throw in some cardio in the mix. So without further ado, here we go:
4/13 Chest/Bi

Incline DB (55,65,75,85,85) (12,11,10,6,5)

Hammer Curl (35,40,40,40) (13,10,10,10)
Wide Grip Straight bar (bar, +10,+30,+30,+20) (20,15,10,8,10)
Since I was a little pressed for time (as usual), I just went into the sauna after lifting, first day back in a couple weeks but the numbers are still about the same, so I'm happy about that.

4/15 Back
Pullups 5X10
DB Rows (60,70,80,90) (15,12,10,10)
Deads (135,205,225,245) (15,10,10,6)

Lat PD (100,130,145,145) (12,10,8,10)
Wanted to get an fst set in, but decided to jump in on this cardio kickboxing class, a lot more intense than it sounds actually, hehe. I figured, worse case, it beats hitting a treadmill... Liked it though, I was beat at the end of all this... Stay tuned...
