Wantings Summer Prog.
Today I Purchased M.A.S.S. Cycle from NxCare
Heres some backround information about it
Its 21-day cycle for about $41 at GNC I figured for $41 I could give it a shot.
If I find good results I'll continue it through the summer at the same time I'm taking a Multi Vitamin and Whey Protien. My diet will be anywhere from 150-200+ grams a day. I don't really count carbs and fats and am thinking as long as I dont pig out on unnecessary things I should be alright.
As of right now I do very little cardio except for playing basketball a couple times a week for 30mins to an hour. Since school is out I think it will be hard to get a game going so I'll take that out and run a couple times a week for 30 mins or so.
The Mass Cycle came with a workout routine any input on how effective it would be reading the book its actually quiet detailed
Day1:Chest/Back (exercise,sets,reps,rest between)
Bent Over Row-(4)(8,8,8,5)(3)
Incline DB Press-(3)(7,7,7)(3)
Squats-(4)(8,8,8,5)(3 mins 4 before last set)
seated calf raise-(3)(10,10,10)(2)
Side DB Lunge-(3)(8,8,8)(2)
DB lateral Raise-(3)(8,8,8)(3)
Bent Over Lateral-(2)(10,10)(2)
Incline DB Curl-(3)(8,8,8)(2-3)
Day9: refer to day 1
Day11: refer to day 2
So on to day 21
Let me know how you like it and if you have any comments/suggestions on how I could make it more beneficial to myself
I think thats enough typing for now I'll post more later.
Day1:I woke up took 2 multis and 3 anavol pills.
had school till 11 (last day) got home too pwo shake with 3 more anavol pills
Had a pretty good workout all and all. A little more volume than I'm used to but I got through all right. Got home and took post w/o shake then had to head to work. my total protien is about 230grams today which is the min. id like to have. I would of ate more but between school and then work 3-8 it messed with my day. Also school was a reason that I wasn't going to do this until now.
Goal by the end of the 21 day cycle: 155-160
Goal by the end of the summer:170
I hope those are realistic goals The biggest part is just eating and every free time I have will involve eating/digesting
Day2:Rest day chest was sore as hell, but heres the diet today
woke up had 3 eggs and some slices of bacon 24gs of Protien
2 hours later (10:30ish) Bowl of cereal with scoop of whey about 35g
12:30 can of tuna 48gs
I was stuffed till 5ish had a hamburger 25g
Finished night off w/ shake 60gs
Todays total: 192 I should of had one more meal even if I had to force myself another tuna sandwhich or something that would of bumped me up there
Work out days are easier I usually get 100 grams or so from shakes
not really caring about gaining fat not to say I want to gain like 5lbs+ in it but if I gain some no big deal.
Haven't posted in awhile. Day3 (legs)almost kicked my ass but I got through it though now day 5 they are still sore. Day4 was just a rest day and today I woke up extra early before work to get in my workout.It was shoulders and traps which I have not done in a few weeks now. Reason being after every workout my right hsoulder would kill me. So far its not hurting which im pleased about.
So far I'm happy with this cycle. Any results right now are probably in my mind, but im optimistic about this. I am finding it hard to eat though every 2-2.1/2 hours I try getting a meal in and its hard.
Well tomorrow is day 9. First time hitting chest again I'm hoping to put up more weight than last time. Arms went well aside of working out with old men. I came out smelling like Old Spice. Experimented with Protein Pancakes not bad even though they came out chocolate do to my powder. They do need syrup cause otherwise it's really dry. 200g a day is my goal workout days its over that cause I drink about 100g.
1.) One can of tuna at 12:30 filled you up until 5ish?
2.) Where's the carbs? It's just as important as protein for bulking! I see a bowl of cereal, and the bun for your hamburger. You NEED carbs or you're not going to grow.
I couldn't eat that day. My appetite is getting better but yeah I had to force that also I'm drinking a lot more water which is filling me up as well and i need carbs my mom is on a no carb diet so she stopped buying bread and it sucks I need to tell her to pick some up.
Tell her to buy you some oatmeal and brown rice. It'll cost her about $10.. Just remember, if you ain't eating, I assure you you're not growing. All depends on how badly you want to achieve those goals you posted. The mass stack won't put the weight on you if you aren't eating.
At least try to eat smaller meals spreadloaded throughout the day. If you get filled up so quickly on so little food, you may need to divide that in half and try to eat a little something every 2 hours.
Okay well I told her the convo went a little like this.
Yo mom we need bread so when you can get some good.
she says "I thought you weren't eating carbs"
me:"No thats you I'm trying to gain"
she gives in and I'll have my carbs now. for breakfast would oatmeal be better than eggs? Or I guess I could do Oatmeal and a shake for morning then workout comeback and have a shake n eggs.
It sounds like you're working on your appetite while at the same time you may be worried about putting on fat....that's a psychological block that could sabatoge you.
Even though you don't eat much do you tend to keep on fat anyway? I can understand how hard that could be. But the bottom line is you've got to get your calories into gain land like 0311 said. You'd be much better off CONCENTRATING on moving up you calories to a predetermined level and see how you gain. If you start to gain an unexceptable level of fat then you can adjust. And you haven't even considered the macronutrient ratio yet which, although I'm no expert, can make a big difference in fat gain...
It's all about nutrient partitioning. Get some fish/flax oil also if you can...you need it for proper fatty acid motabolism.
