Hi all. I'm fairly new to this site, very little know me. I'm creating a log, to keep track of my daily nutrition and training. Now I'll tell a little about myself, some things may surprise you.
I'm 5'7", 143 lbs. Beginning bulk: 123 lbs. Current BF %: 8.5
I'm 15, been training for a year +. As a starter, I'm competing in my first show on June 28th; OCB Central Eastern Seaboard States. I am continuing my bulk until mid-may, as my body fat accumulation has been low due to keeping the bulk cleaner. Nutrition is my number one priority, so you will soon see that my meal log is what will be posted here, more often then the training.
Unlike most teens, I'm not into supplementation. I take what I need to take, nothing more. At this moment I am taking ON whey protein and Nutraplanet Leucine. I use the following as a nutritional aid, and to further help in protein synthesis and muscular hypertrophy.
So, let's get started.
My current split is a bit on the rather basic side, which IMO is the easiest way for my body to adapt to a certain stimuli. It's 5 day, with an undulating rep range of. I've begun to work to full strrength, instead of following my rep ranges. I do this to continue the procedure of progressive overload, and try the best I can to focus on the sacroplasmic and myofibrillar of the muscle cells.
Day 1: Chest
Day 2: Back
Day 3: Off
Day 4: Shoulders
Day 5: Arms
Day 6: Legs
I had just come off of an UB/LB split, which focused on the types of hypertrophy, and needless to say, it resulted in CNS drain. So that needed to be ended with some strategic deconditioning.
...Now, my diet.
I'm bulking. I don't use the standard formulas to develop my macro nutrient breakdown. I've edited my nutrition to how my body responds. I'm an ectomorprh, hardcore hardgainer. I keep my protein at around 1.5-2g/lb of bodyweight. My carbs at 350-400g and my fats at 80-110g. Nutritional timing is just as important to me, so that's not a problem. Nutrition is my passion, or is turning out to be.
NOTE: I'm in contest preparation. So updating my log won't be as continuous as yours may be.
Thanks for reading. Today's an off day for training, so I'll begin this journey with today's meal log.
Have a good one.
