Don't worry about the weight. You've likely gained a couple of pounds due to water retention caused by creatine supplementation.

You're not going to gain too much muscle right off the bat like that. The first adaptations (strengthwise) are going to be neural in nature for the most part.

If you act sanctimonious I will just list out your logical fallacies until you get pissed off and spew blasphemous remarks.

neural?

I haven't been unrealistic with my expectations, but I AM trying for a pound of weight a week or so..

If I keep staying at 210 or less for much longer I'll know this varying calorie amount per day thing isn't working (2800, 3200, 3100, 2900), and I should just keep it above and close to 3000, and see what happens..

Oct 2/08

PreWO shake:

70g of waxy maize, 30g of whey, 2.5g. of Creatine, some walnuts

WORKOUT C

10 min w/u run

SQUAT

NWx10x1
50x5x2
110x5x4

Felt good, felt like I was on my toes a bit too much on the last reps on the 3rd set, so added a fourth and tried to be really strict..

PRESS

40x10x1
60x10x1
90x5x1
100x5x3

This was with one of those fixed weight barbells, like a free-weight dumb bell..

If looking at it as a barbell with plates, 100 - 45 = 55lbs..

ROWS

50x8x2
100x5x3

FRONT PLANKS

40 sec. x2



PWO shake:

70g of waxy maize, 30g of whey, 2.5g. of Creatine

PWO Meal:

Egg white omelet w/ cheese and back bacon, salsa, 1 tomato, 1 apple.

Cals for day: 3400 Protein: 288

If you don't care if you put on any fat then - 1lb a week is 4lbs a month and 48lbs a year. When you look at it that way it seems like a lot of weight.

I'm happy putting on 10lbs a year. I'm 230-235 and still have abs , so lean mass is the best for me.

TALO's Sig:Cheap and good bulk supplements from Canada Protein

Here is a curve ball for you. You probably don't need to have the same PWO shake every workout. On very high intensity days, I will add about 60-70g of WMS to my PWO shake. On light days or pressing days, it's normally 30-40g. I basically put back in what I'm taking out...a harder workout will deplete my body more than a light day, so why have the same shake both days? I don't know if this makes any difference to you, but I thought it might interest you if you hadn't already considered it. What you're doing now is "safe" and I don't know if there's a reason to adjust anything, but if you ever want a lighter shake after a lighter workout, then go for it.

Looks like you're doing well with the diet. Keep up the good work.

Huh..

But what's a "light" day?

Probably my WO B, where I'm doing stuff like split squats and pushups,.... and deadlifts.....

Hmm.. Maybe not so light....
