I thought I would bring my journal up here to be with BigDaddyD's.

I started on keto a week ago Monday and it has kicked in pretty well now.

I am 212 on the nose this morning according to my home scale...I am down 11 now since my trip to Mexico in mid August.

My plan right now is to do the following in order to claim both trophy's at the Rx Muscle Arnold competition:

Keep the same training split and do 16-20 sets per session in 4 different exercises...I never do the same exact things 2 weeks in a row:

M-legs
T-chest
W-back
Th-shoulders
F-arms

Note, I do not do any ab or calf work...the good Lord gave me calves so I concentrate on the stuff he did not give me.

Cardio after training, starting at 60 minutes per day. Will do cardio only on weekends both days. Target heart rate of 125-130 for now.

Diet is going well, typical day is:

Preworkout at 6 am: 2-3 eggs and 1 cup of egg whites, scrambled..with hot sauce

Postworkout: 2 scoops of whey and 1.5 tbsp of peanut butter

Meal 3: tuna or chicken, 2 cups of green veggies, almonds or peanut butter depending on what I have around

Meal 4: same as 2

Meal 5: chicken or steak, veggies

Meal 6: same as 2.

taking the following supplements, most at doctor's orders to help with my heart disease risk:

fish oil: 2 capsules 3x a day
vitamin c: 2g a day
CoQ10: 100mg 2x a day
Gluco/MSM: 2 a day
Multivitamin: 1 a day
ZMA: 3 a day
niacin: 500mg 2x a day, slow release
Green tea extract: 1 3x a day

No fat burners for now, but I have some on hand if need them

gman
10-13-2009, 11:05 AM
Today was chest day

Feet on bench, hands on upside down bosu ball pushups: 25 30 30 30 22

Incline bb press: 6/175 4/175 5/165 5/165 4/165

Incline flys: 9/55 8/55 8/55 7/55 6/55

EZ bar pullovers: 10/85 9/85 9/85

60 minutes on bike, 124 bpm average heart rate.

Mike you gonna need someone to take pics for you. Trying to pose/flex while holding a camera is not letting you flex/pose at your best.

Get your wife to take the pic, practice in a mirror until you get the "feel" of the pose and then have her snap the shot.

I know how hard it is Mike. My wife made cookies last night and asked how many I wanted. Not IF, but how many. I had to bribe her to stop tonight to buy me some fresh salmon and greenbeans. UGH....I definitely know Mike!

Did back today... 2 scoops of whey before I headed out and a handful of supplements.

BB shrugs with straps: 12/315 8/335 7/365 6/365

Rear delt movement from Dave P video (hard to describe this one): 14/55 and 3 sets of 12/55

Wide grip pullups with straps: 8 8 6 6

Two hand db rows: 10/90 10/90 9/90 8/90 (90 in each hand)

Underhanded inverted rows at smith machine: 8 7 8 8

60 minutes on exercise bike, heart rate of zero (the monitor never picked up my heart rate)..I was sweating pretty good at the end though!

Not feeling it today, really was wiped out during the cardio

Got into the office and had 2 more scoops of whey.

Right now, it is easy going.

shoulders

4x through the following circuit, no rest between exercises...90 seconds rest between each circuit.

upright rows using 45lb plate
arnold presses
db laterals
front raises using 45 lb plate
db shoulder presses

then 60 minutes on bike at 126 bpm average

am shaking and jittery right now, not in a good way...had coffee before and after training, but it usually does not affect me like this.

Sounds like a recipe for a bodybuilder casserole :drool:

Got my trip to Ohio all planned out.....just a lil 12.37 hour leisurely drive, lol

Matt, I meant that's it, no fat today. Every day counts and I fucked up yesterday so need to balance out by going low fat today.

Never would have guessed 12 hours from tulsa to columbus

Do the challenge, only do it online as you won't fit into one of the categories. Post up progress picts and see how much you can gain by March. We'll keep you honest :)

Macros today so far...might have 2 scoops of whey at bedtime, which will change things some

54g far, 42g carbs, 269g protein

I did eat one ounce of peanuts, and the lean body shakes had 9 g of fat each, plus 6 fish oils...hence fat was still 54 g... still a great day.

I will be over 300g of protein if I have 2 more scoops of whey, at only 1900 calories or so.

I ordered some dried egg whites and been adding them to my shakes for 60 or so grams per shake. been working nicely

gman

I kind of like doing the whey thing, makes it simple...2 scoops and you're done. No weighing, no measuring.

bigdaddyd
10-16-2009, 08:39 PM
Yeah, I am doing that. 2 scoops of whey and 2 or 4 scoops of the egg whites.

I tried the pea protein. It's a very mild taste, would mix well with juice I think. Good nutritional profile. Unfortunately I reacted to it :( Still stuck eating chicken. I envy you Mike!

that's bad, Pam...I was crossing my fingers that you could take it...it's so convenient to be able to use whey.

Even having the equivalent of 10 scoops today, no stomach ache, no gas, no problems at al

I did have 2 scoops of whey later last night so ended up

1,884 calories, 56g fat, 52 g carbs, 317 g protein

Today I am going to go do an hour of cardio, but no lifting...my tendinitis in my left biceps tendon is really hurting, so I am glad I have a break for a couple of days from using my arms in training

Going to my daughter's first swim meet of the season this afternoon, should be a lot of fun

I'm at 255 right now. When I had my body comp checked in the spring the girl told me 207 would put me at 5%. I was down to 218 about 4 years ago but have put on a lot of muscle mass in the mean time.
