    Hi Nark Nova,

    thanx to you guys I had my first real 6 pack ever last summer but I lost a liitle too much muscle and wanna avoid that so my plan is to keep cals higher this time and cut through being clean on the diet and exercise whilst mainting strength. Strength dropped a lot last year on my cut..

    I have applied a calcuculator of 1.5 Age 37. Currently 191lbs and calliper tested at 9% b/f though I think I’m a little higher maybe 11%. Looking to cut bodyfat down to 7% over next 6 weeks. Is that possible/probable with the following diet and activity?

    Should I include 30 mins of 60-65% after resistance work on Monday and Thursday?MHR

    2.3oz Oats made with soya milk, 1 whole egg, 5 egg whites
    Cals 536, Carbs 52, Pro 40, Fat 15

    Reviewing your post now.

    Had to dig tru the thread to find it.

    Here we go:

    Noted.

    For reference, your current stats:

    Quote Originally Posted by mg1228 View Post

    ^^Current LBM 149.64 lbs.

    Just an FYI... Your goals entail: an 8lb increase in muscle + 7 lbs of lost fat.

    I've stated this to make some things clear to you.

    5 lbs of muscle in a year is a lot of muscle... unless you're either new to working out, or steroid use .

    You listed no cycle here... So I don't assume it factors in to the equation.

    That being said, I think, unless this is a long-term goal, you've a divergent focus here.

    7lbs fat loss is a walk in the park.

    So... we'll fixate on that bit.

    Just had to go back and edit the rest of my post, and I've just read the following:

    Quote Originally Posted by mg1228 View Post

As most of my noticable bf is in waist--very little on my legs arms shoulders chest, I guess that came from 4 years of drinking 8-9 miller lites every nite
    Noted.

    As stated above, we'll focus on getting you sub-10%

    It's pretty straight-forward IMO.

    When you've reached your goal bodyfat percentage, then you can lean bulk.

    i.e. add LBM slowly and judiciously, without adding fat.


    Quote Originally Posted by mg1228 View Post

    Noted.

    You may need to switch things around to keep progress happening.

    A lot of guys settle into a groove and then seem unable to realize that it this very complacence that's resulted in their stagnation.

    Quote Originally Posted by mg1228 View Post

    I'd suggest you change brands.

    You need more control over your ratios than that.

    Quote Originally Posted by mg1228 View Post

    re: 'huh'... That was a bewildered response on my part.

    Namely because that pwo meal is horrible... particularly for someone of your weight, LBM, and goals.

    Clean it up!

    Quote Originally Posted by mg1228 View Post

    I would suggest a leaner cut of beef, if you're opting for beef... or another meat altogether.

    Again, these things add up.

    An extra 18gr of fat is a shitload... particularly for one meal already laden with carbs and protein.

    If you were keto-dieting it would be a problem.

    But you're not keto-dieting.

    Quote Originally Posted by mg1228 View Post

    Not insult intended mate... but this sucks.

    Your LBM is 149 lbs... not 249 lbs.

    You aren't using insulin , or any other nutrient-partitioning agent.

    You have absolutely no justification for piling 80+ grams of carbs pwo on top of a bunch of already carb-laden meals.

    Quote Originally Posted by mg1228 View Post

    Too many calories by far.

    Drop to 2100 kcals on cardio-only days... and 2700 on training days.

    Once every 14 days... bump the kcals up to 3k... and call that a re-feed.

    Moving on to previously unanswered posts made by you:

    Quote Originally Posted by mg1228 View Post

    No.

    It means that you need to be judicious about where (i.e. within which meals) you add flax.

    Fat, like the rest of your macronutrients, should be spread out over the course of the day.

    Ok, mr. INCREDIBLY UNDERAPPRECIATED GODSEND Nark , here's my stats !

    looking to bulk up over 10 weeks.
    plan on taking 400 mg deca weeks 1-8, 500 mg test prop weeks 1-10 then cut naturally afterwards.

    age 24

    6'3"
    195 lbs
    14% BF

    using THE equations
    my BMR is 2060 and TDEE 3600 cals

    I plan on lifting weights 4 days a week (45 min - 1 hr), cardio twice a week (30-45 min) to keep from gaining too much bodyfat, one day rest.

    this is my design diet based on what i can afford and eat.

    BREAKFAST:

    1 cup whole oatmeal
    1 SCOOP ON gold standard
    1 tbsp peanut butter
    1 pill fish oil

    -610 calories
    = 66.5 carbs, 42 protein, 16 g fat


    MEAL 2:
    4 pieces whole wheat bread
    4 ounces chicken breast
    5 pills MEGA EFA fish oils

    -470 calories
    = 62.5 carbs, 44 g protein, 10 g fat


    meal 3 (pre workout):
    1 1/4 cup whole oatmeal
    1 cup liquid egg whites
    1 tbsp peanut butter
    2 pills fish oils

    -600 calories
    = 70.5 carbs, 42 g protein, 15.5 g fat





    ----immediately post workout----
    (40 g) dextrose (should this be adjusted?)
    5 g creatine
    (1.5 servings) ON Gold Standard (36 g protein)




    meal 4 (post workout):
    1 1/4 cup whole oatmeal
    1 tbsp peanut butter
    6 oz chicken breast
    2 pills fish oils

    -630 calories
    =66 carbs, 54 protein, 16.2 fat


    meal 5
    1 cup whole oatmeal
    4 oz chicken breast
    1 tbsp peanut butter

    -580 calories
    =66.5 carbs, 42 protein, 14 fat



    meal 6
    1/4 cup whole wheat oatmeal
    2 oz chicken breast
    2 tbsp peanut butter
    2 pieces whole wheat bread

    1 scoop ON Casein

    -625 calories
    =54 carbs, 54 protein, 21.5 fat


    3935 calories

    450 g carbs (47%)
    311 g protein (32%)
    89 g fat (only 12 g saturated) (21%)


    fiborous veggies thrown in aplenty.


    what do i need to tweak considering i will be cycling? GOD BLESS YOU!


    PS - How many kcals should i be looking at consuming on my rest day, and what ratio (carbs/pro/fat)?

    I've never used a diuretic in my life to be honest.

    I always manipulate water/potassium/sodium/carbs.

    Technically, I don't carb deplete either... Neither do i do typical glycogen-depleting work-outs.

    I keep to my normal training routine until just over a week out.

    Then I train bodyparts in order of development.

    i.e. my last training session will be the bodypart which is lagging the most.

    This occurs 3 days out.

    This is done so as to keep it 'fuller', due to the post-training fluid retention and glycogen supercompensation.

    5 days out, I significantly bump my water intake... keeping the sodium added to food constant. (I keep sodium as constant as possible during the prep)

    I stop adding sodium to foods on wednesday after my last workout.

    Most foods contain sodium, so cutting it results in a reduction of sodium ingested... It does not eliminate all sodium being ingested.

    I stop adding sodium at this point because it serves no purpose.

    No additional sodium when training is intense = cramps.

    With training ceased, additional sodium is no longer necessary.

    The natural sodium content of foods is enough at that point.

    I don't mess with sodium loading and depleting because I think it's far too extreme and unpredictable.

    re: water.. I do reduce it generally from 2 days out... again @ 1 day out.

    The day of the show i don't ingest water... 'cept a mouthful or so with meals to aide in carb transport and storage.

    I opt for carbs which have a decent percentage of water in 'em... Like potatoes.

    It's pretty simple honestly.

    The physique was better prior to injury... but i'm not bitching.

    I've worked hard to get back where I am at present

    I would suggest that you revise this...adding it at least some pwo cardio... 20-30 minutes.

    Reading your other threads, your ultimate goal is re-composition.

    You can't afford to half-ass it.

    Kcal intake days 1-6: 2900kcals.

    Day 7: 2300kcal.

    Macro spread on days 1-6: 290 gr protein; 290 gr carbs; 65 gr fat
    Macro spread on day 7: 260 gr protein; 200 gr fibrous carbs; 50 gr fat

    20-30 grams... i.e. half of your fat allotment.

    "I would suggest that you revise this...adding it at least some pwo cardio... 20-30 minutes."

    -20-30 minutes after EVERY workout yes?

    -do i take my post workout dextrose and shake immediately before or immediately after the cardio? or some space in between?


    and i know i'm gonna get alot of shit for this, but a kcal is a calorie right? :X

    So you dont have to go looking for previous posts...ill summarize self/goals

    I'm a 25 year old professional baseball player who is coming off of Reconstructive Shoulder Surgury..

    I currently sit at 189 Pounds, (6 ft 4) but my playing weight has always been around 215-220 @ 9-10% bf..I stopped lifting for 6 months and lost a lot of my appetite for a solid 10 weeks after surgury and lost a lot of weight..

    I'm a very hard gainer and Its a necessity that I preform heavy cardio everyday (6 days a week). (swim 2 miles, run gym sprints for 35 minutes). I lift as heavy as I can, but I'm reluctant to dead lift/shoulder press/bench big amounts due to the new shoulder.

    My goal is to get back to my playing weight by October, in time to report to the Latin American Winter Leagues


    ok..now help....

    too many calories? too much protein? or are the Fitday calculations just wrong?..I eat everything that I listed without problem...and I'm certainly full, but don't feel gorged...

    thoughts..

    thanks guys
    Too many calories? I'd say 'yes' at a glance.

    It's too much protein at any rate.

    In addition... I don't like your macros at all.

    Have you seen any increases in bodyfat thus far?

    Please list your total amount of activity per day.

    e.g. duration of swimming, weight-training etc.

    I'd also like to know if you were still able to do cardio during your period of inactivity.

    Also you stated your current weight, as well as your 'normal' bodyfat percentage... but you didn't state your current bodyfat percentage.

    Please state that at this time.

    From 11% to 7% @ your current weight... that's a journey of 10 lbs.

    So it's definitely possible.

    Time to assess if your diet et. al. will support it however.

    That depends.

    The cardio listed below... is that what you're currently doing? Or is it what you intend to do?

    If it's the latter, what are you currently doing?

    If it's the former, then the answer to your question is 'yes'.

    Pretty solid diet... but too many calories IMO.

    If you were lean-bulking... yes.

    Cutting.. no.

    I can appreciate you not wanting to lose strength etc.

    However, you've gotta decide what your primary goal is.

    Additionally, don't confuse looking flat with actual muscle loss.

    Not much I can say here.

    I'd drop the Wednesday HIIT session, in favour of active rest.

    looking to bulk up over 10 weeks.
    plan on taking 400 mg deca weeks 1-8, 500 mg test prop weeks 1-10 then cut naturally afterwards.

    age 24

    6'3"
    195 lbs
    14% BF

    using THE equations
    my BMR is 2060 and TDEE 3600 cals

    I plan on lifting weights 4 days a week (45 min - 1 hr), cardio twice a week (30-45 min) to keep from gaining too much bodyfat, one day rest.

    this is my design diet based on what i can afford and eat.

    BREAKFAST:

    1 cup whole oatmeal
    1 SCOOP ON gold standard
    1 tbsp peanut butter
    1 pill fish oil

    -610 calories
    = 66.5 carbs, 42 protein, 16 g fat


    MEAL 2:
    4 pieces whole wheat bread
    4 ounces chicken breast
    5 pills MEGA EFA fish oils

    -470 calories
    = 62.5 carbs, 44 g protein, 10 g fat


    meal 3 (pre workout):
    1 1/4 cup whole oatmeal
    1 cup liquid egg whites
    1 tbsp peanut butter
    2 pills fish oils

    -600 calories
    = 70.5 carbs, 42 g protein, 15.5 g fat





    ----immediately post workout----
    (40 g) dextrose (should this be adjusted?)
    5 g creatine
    (1.5 servings) ON Gold Standard (36 g protein)




    meal 4 (post workout):
    1 1/4 cup whole oatmeal
    1 tbsp peanut butter
    6 oz chicken breast
    2 pills fish oils

    -630 calories
    =66 carbs, 54 protein, 16.2 fat


    meal 5
    1 cup whole oatmeal
    4 oz chicken breast
    1 tbsp peanut butter

    -580 calories
    =66.5 carbs, 42 protein, 14 fat



    meal 6
    1/4 cup whole wheat oatmeal
    2 oz chicken breast
    2 tbsp peanut butter
    2 pieces whole wheat bread

    1 scoop ON Casein

    -625 calories
    =54 carbs, 54 protein, 21.5 fat


    3935 calories

    450 g carbs (47%)
    311 g protein (32%)
    89 g fat (only 12 g saturated) (21%)


    fiborous veggies thrown in aplenty.


    what do i need to tweak considering i will be cycling? GOD BLESS YOU!


    PS - How many kcals should i be looking at consuming on my rest day, and what ratio (carbs/pro/fat)?
    Revise this diet based on the suggested kcal range I posted in response to your ealier question.

    Repost it after you've revised it, and I'll answer any further questions from that point.

    89 g fat (only 12 g saturated) (21%)

    My suggestions:

    Reading your other threads, your ultimate goal is re-composition.

    You can't afford to half-ass it.

    Kcal intake days 1-6: 2900kcals.

    Day 7: 2300kcal.

    Macro spread on days 1-6: 290 gr protein; 290 gr carbs; 65 gr fat
    Macro spread on day 7: 260 gr protein; 200 gr fibrous carbs; 50 gr fat
    Your questions:

    Keep the ratios just about the same with every meal.

    PWO cardio will be your friend tru-out this process.

    Thanx for this dude

    The cardio listed below... is that what you're currently doing? Or is it what you intend to do?
    It's What I've been doing for a few weeks so I will add 30 mins after each upper body workout. And drop my Wednesday HIIT for pre breakfast fat burn.

    Pretty solid diet... but too many calories IMO
    Noted. How many would you suggest I drop or change my multiplier to?

    Also, do I drop cals evenly across my macros or just from carbs?

    And, will I need a refeed at all?


    Also can I post a link to last years transformation. Thanx to Nova for his diet advice last year. I wanna be bigger, better and leaner this year!!

    no i didn't, my bad


    re: Milk.

    Interesting carb choice.


    normallly i don't use milk, just trying out this stuff, it had interesting stats so i decided to mess with it, per cup 90cal/12gpro/6gcarb/0gfat

    An hour later
    Apple 85/0/23/0
    Preworkout shake 100/0/25/0
    contents: Creatine monohydrate, AAKG, ALA, Buzz Saw(mix of creatines and arginines), Beta Alanine
    Personally, I don't like how this is structured.

    What's your rationale?
    that day i didn't have a choice, i got a call right after that meal and was told that that i had stuff to do today, which gave me a very small window of oppurtunity, i just finished the preworkout powder mix and will be switching to something with so carbs, i didn't realize it was chocked full of maltodextrin when i bout it, but i normally will either have 30g of carbs from oatmeal or a banana before the gym
    -CNS[/QUOTE]

    any other info you need, thanks for the critique


    btw, how would you change the structure?
    i have to start working out now later in the day(after 4-5) because of school

    I do about 100 Laps in the Pool each day and it takes around 30 minutes to complete. Swimming takes place directly after Lifting for 45 minutes.

    I do a serious Plyo routine with box jumps and such for 20 minutes on Mondays and Thusdays

    I also Run 2 miles every day on my lunch break. Typically takes me about 14 minutes to finish the run. On top of that I have a fairly active job that results in me walking 2-3 miles a day.

    I lift M-F. With a Legs/Back/Bi-tri/Legs/Chest split.
    Legs and back lifts are heavy, arms and chester are lighter..do to tenderness in repaired shoulder. Each workout takes about 50 minutes and I do an average of 5 excercises per body part.

    I haven't seen any increase in body fat thus far and I currently sit @ 12 percent via caliper test.

    I wasn't able to preform cardio during my period of inactivity because the jostling motion really hurt the repaired parts (I had the cuff totally rebuilt, as well as the Bicep Tendon cut and stretched.

    thanks

    Hey Nark and Nova thanks for doing this!

    I've just finished putting together my bulking diet and would love if you could critique it...

    I'm 27, 5'10" 160lbs. ectomorph. I'd like to bulk up to 200lbs.

    I have no idea what my BF% is so have attached pics as I figure it would be helpful. I'm on a HIT weight training program 3 day per week, approx. 90 minutes each day. I was 140lbs. 4 months ago and have gained 20lbs. in that time by just eating every 3 hours with no plan. I have since plateued and realize it's time to buckle down and follow a diet.

    So here it is:

    hey nark a couple of questions...

    -about how much dextrose should i have pwo? 40g? whey 40g as well?
    (2900kcal, 290 carb, 290 protein, 60 fat your suggested macros for me) and should i continue or discontinue use of creatine during my cycle?


    -i'm currently on an antibiotic (amoxicillin) and anti-inflammatory as part of my post wisdom tooth removal. my consumption of it will end the day i begin my AAS (tomorrow, thursday) should this affect or be affected by my use of AAS beginning tommorow?


    -even though i'm bulking, would it be best to do my cardio-only days first thing in the morning on an empty stomach? or same time as my regular resistance training?

    also, what is the suggested BPM range for cardio for me?


    -lastly, do you know which thread you could direct me to displaying your preferred training methods for Bulking? i have heard so, so many different theories (5-8 second negatives, drop setting, pyramiding e.t.c.) and would like to get your take on what you believe is best for bulking.


    i'm in between jobs right now so i should have one within 2 weeks or so, so i'm not going to post my diet as its only going to be temporary. i'm following the macros and ratios to the T for now, and as soon as i have a stable schedule i will post my diet accordingly. Thanks for your time once again, Nark!
