Iam ready for it man.
Hmm hard to tell, but if your job is demanding make sure you get to proper amount of cals and macro's. There are enough guys who can build proper physiques with a physical demanding job, you only have to monitor your progress and overall feeling to make sure your body dont burn out. Be alert for signs of overreaching and dont be afraid to deload if your feeling tired.
Macronutrients are nutrients that provide calories or energy. there are 3 types of macro's which we all know:
You need to be in a caloric surplus. Only than you will gain weight and your recovery will be at his best, the down side along with that is your gonna gain some bodyfat as well, dont worry about that too much but dont go overboard with the bulk. If you are gaining too much bf cut some cals and repeat. Another reason to monitor your body.
^^Exactly, well said.
Like I told you in your nutrition log bro, you told me you're a meso/endo. So, if I'm correct, you really don't need a deep, excessive caloric surplus, where someone like me does.
I think, honestly, 1day recovery is fine with you.
The problem is, 5x5 revolves around the multi-joint, compound lifts. And that's fine, but the more of the musculature involved in certain lifts, the heavier the load on the CNS (central nervous system). Which will ultimately cause you to over-reach and go into drainage/adrenal fatigue.
The nutrients you take in help refrain your body from psychologically draining, as well as neurologically. Keep strong bro, and listen to your body.
That's the biggest key to the sport.
Yeah, it's solid for mass gain.
But I'd probably cut to the single digits, then bulk up. The higher the body fat%, the number of insulin receptors is decreased which also decreases their sensitivity. Plus you also stimulate other hormones which makes it harder to gain lean mass.
Just my opinion, and it's up to you. I'd be gladly to help you out either way.
You have to keep in mind that this program is build around the dual factor training principle. This means overreaching is part of the programm. 3-4 week overreaching (volume Phase) followed by 1 deload week and 3 weeks intenity. Its planned overreaching but monitoring your body is absolutely essential.
Singel digits: 0 to 9%
Double digits: 10 to 99%
You should be at the point overtraining, not past it. This is a negative outcome no matter the training principles designed. You should be overreaching the week before the deload, anymore than that is neurologically taxing.
Cutting now will make it easier for your next bulk.
Do you know your current BF%?
