    I have a very large frame (football players build) and at present I workout three to four times per week with the following schedule.

    Mon.-cardio (treadmill) 1.5 miles at 3.0 to 3.5 speed for my warm up at a incline of 0 to 2.5,then I hit the weights. I was doing 12 reps but, I just dropped it to 8 reps and increased the weight. Lat pull down 3 sets 8 reps of heavy weight. Tricep pull down 3 sets 8 reps heavy weight...heavy weight for me is 120 lbs., 130 lbs. and 140 lbs. on the tricep pull down. Seated rows 3 sets 8 reps heavy weight... 120, 140 and 160 lbs. Butterfly machine or peck deck which ever you prefer 3 sets 8 reps...120, 140 and 160 lbs. And last but not least the chest press 3 sets 8 reps of heavy weight... 120, 150 and 175 lbs.

    Tues.-Strictly cardio... I change the intervals every 1/4 mile. Start with 3.2 speed and at 0 incline, 3.2 speed and 2.5 incline, 3.2 speed and 5.0 incline, 3.0 speed and 0 incline, 3.0 speed and 7.5 incline, 3.0 speed and 0 incline, 3.0 and 2.5 incline, 3.0 speed and 5.0 incline, 3.0 speed and 0 incline and 3.5 speed and 0 incline for a total of 2.75 miles. I the move over to the leg press for 3 sets 8 reps of moderate weight...300, 400 and 470 lbs.

    Wed.- Repeat of Monday

    Thurs.- Repeat of Tuesday

    For someone my size trying to lean out and gain muscle mass in the process, how many calories should I be eating a day? Is my workout routine going to get it done? If not, what would you recommend? Any idea of a good diet or even a grocery list? If you were me what would you be doing?
    whats the point of the varying cardio incline intervals?

    Flax Seed Oil

    First i am amazed at how much food you consume. And it seems that you are eating constantly. Are you able to have this diet on a regular work schedule? And i am interested to know the benefits of flax seed oil. Any reason to take it more than once a day?

    I was amazed at how much food you consume and the frequency with which you eat it. I was curious about the effects of flax seed oil and why you consume it more than once a day?

    So I started a new diet 1 week ago which included me eating 4 cans of tuna in a day. After some research, seems that the recommended maximum for a male who is 200lbs is 1 can per week or 3 cans of light tuna per week. Any more and you are being exposed to too much Mercury. Ive seen some of the members' daily diets and a lot more than the recommended max is being consumed.

    Any thoughts?


    Nevermind.....did a search, found other threads.

    100g mixed veg

    Total for meal 5, Kc 668g, P 72g, C 69g, F 8g

    Total daily macro's

    Kc 2960
    Protein 245
    Carbs 395
    Fats 90

    I have been on this diet now couple weeks, have gained 3 lbs but my waist line has increased from 37" upto 38"

    Considering i am trying to build qualirt lean muscle but decrease my belly fat this may be a totsly wrong diet...

    When building muscle mass, the workout is only half of the battle. The other half is your diet. Without a good diet, is impossible to gain any measure of lean muscle mass. That is because the workout serves as stimuli making your body build muscle tissue.

This diet I use for gains in lean muscle mass, by only having 3 meals a day consisting of carbs, means only 3 spikes of insulin per day, keeping you leaner. I will do cardio 3 time a week, low intensity 20-30 minutes. I like walking. I will be following this kind of diet for the next 2 ½ month as I want to lean out a bit and gain some quality muscle before I go to the Arnold’s to meet all my fitness girl-friends…lol…please keep in mind i am about 200lbs, so adjust the total calories as needed...enjoy it, post questions below and I will try to get to them as often as I can. And of course let me know what you think of this idea. Thanks…XXL

    would you suggest i consume the same amount of carbs?

    How much protein should i consume each day?

    What about days where you do not workout at all?

    The amount of fat level per day for me at the moment is 47gm.

    Thanks.
    170lbs. Endomorph?? Kinda goes against eachother...170 is pretty much average...but i would suggest taking the carbs down a bit maybe 50-75(225-250) but you have to gauge whether your energy is ok...you could increase you fats but i would change carbs first...see how that works for you...good luck

    I'm a division 1 college pitcher 6"1 196lbs trying to gain lean muscle mass. My goal is to be 215 by spring. How much calories should I eat a day? I'm currently taking muscle farm whey protein, muscle farm casein protien, and creatine, along with fish oils for joint health. Any other substances I should take or should I just focus on getting the necessary calories I need?

    Are you checking macros in that? Sounds high in carbs and light on protein. Fats sound less than ideal. Could be cleaner.

    Macros are protein, carbs and fats. Short for macronutrients

    Im 19 and new to working out and to this forum ive been looking around and it seems that the popular consensus is that diet is pretty much the biggest factor for getting swole and making the most out of everything you do so naturally i want to know if i can improve my diet here is the diet i am currently trying to do.

    meal 1
    4 egg whites
    ~1 cup oatmeal (i dont weigh my food but i guess i should start)

    meal 2
    ~200g protein source (chicken lean beef or fish typically salmon)
    ~1 cup carb source (usually brown rice or quinoa)

    meal 3
    ~200g protein source (chicken lean beef or fish typically salmon)
    ~1 cup carb source (usually brown rice or quinoa)

    meal 4 post workout
    3 scoops of syntha

    meal 5
    ~200g protein source (chicken lean beef or fish typically salmon)
    ~1 cup carb source (usually brown rice or quinoa)

    meal 6
    2-3 scoops syntha

    some other comments i have are that i am 5'8 at 153 lbs I've always wanted to workout never got motivated enough to actually start until between semesters this year because i was starting to get a gut so i am trying to burn fat/gain muscle at the same time and despite being a chubbster i never can get all of the meals in i typically end up eating 5 meals subbing one for a cup of brown rice while i sit here and research the forum so should i force myself into eating that 6th meal? Another problem is that since im on winter break i have no legit schedule and therefore do not have specific meal times i eat when i get hungry some days i wake up at 4 in the afternoon the next 5:30 it may help to fix this by adding structure but times roman mentioned an appetite stimulant periactin

    a few other things there is no sugar in my diet and i drink only water apart from white flood(just got it today) and protein shakes i drink atleast a gallon typically around 1.2 and i add salt to everything maybe thats bad but crave it supplements i currently take are 1500mg glutamine 500mg carnatine 2000mg creatine and a one a day teen advantage multivitamin i typically take these first thing when i wake up but read creatine bottle for the first time today and say that it has 500mg glutamine(reason for extra glutamine because my glutamine caps are 1000mg) and it says to take it right before working out should i take any of the other supps pre workout aswell?

    open to any and all suggestions thanks in advance

    EDIT: i typically run 20 minutes pre workout and burn ~200 calories which is a slow jog and then walk 20 minutes post workout should i switch to all walk and possibly adjust times?

    So many ideas here! My deal, current d ol 50mg daily, 400mg enth wkly and just started 100mg tren ace eod.
    My diet needs some work but I have a good ideas. I'm 6'7" tall current weight 278lbs. I'm not eating enough but do eat mostly on a 6 meal plan. Summer time is hard to eat as scheduled where I work and I go lift about 530pm, still in uniform, hot and sweaty from the days work. Post workout shake hits my stomach like a brick. How many calories should I eat daily? I'm sitting on 20% body weight.

    I'd love to adapt this diet, my problem is I need at least 2 hours after eating before working out otherwise It seems I get really queasy feeling. Probably because I'm not in the best shape.

    hi guys.
    I have to be honest guys my diet looks extremely bland to this but its working for me.
    meal 1...
    8 eggs whites scrambled 2 pieces of wholemeal toast with 60g of oatmeal
    meal 2...
    protein shake 1 hour later
    meal 3&4&5&6...2 1/2 hrs gap ish!!
    80g brown rice broccoli &100 g chicken
    I will also have a post workout shake too workout time vary with shift work.
    but this wat I eat 90% of the time sometimes mix it up with lean mince and pasta and obviously the odd cheat day bout once every 10 days I know its bland but its easy to cook the night before and I can eat hot or cold..

    Wow. I don't think I can even afford all that food. Living in a third world country has its challenges.
