Wow I jumped in this thread late lol. Congrats on on the new workout regiment Eagle. What are your goals? I don't know if ya remember but last fall at the track and even at the chilly cook off I weighed 247lbs and looked like a butter ball walking around on tooth picks lol. To make a long story short I cleaned up my diet started back at the gym and I currently weigh 185lbs. I feel better than I've ever felt and my strength is up at least 25%.

Here's a run down of what I do.

Clean diet!!! 2500-3600 cal oer day
200 grams of protein per day (A mix of shakes and whole foods)
2 scoops of White Flood pre workout
Workout 5-6 days a week
Mon-Chest
Tues-Back/abs/cardio
Wed-Legs
Thurs-Shoulders/abs/cardio
Fri-Bis/Tris
Sat-Abs/cardio
Sun-Rest

Thx man! My goals for now are really just to try a honest workout plan and see what it does for my strength, size, weight, energy, back health... Etc.

I'm naturally pretty strong, but I've already added significant strength and stamina after just a short few weeks of effort. Right now I'm loosely following p90x with a coworker. He's lost crazy weight, but he doesn't intake more than 1500 calories in a day. Insane.

I need to work on the diet piece if I'm goin to lose weight. For now I'm adding weight/muscle so the scale is showing me gaining weight.

Looking forward to my workout tomorrow after missing today.

protein from whole foods is always the way to go but, protein powders do come in handy for breakfast and an afternoon snack.

post workout with fast digesting carbs is always good to..........

You hit the nail on the head. I try to get most of my protein intake through whole foods. And I supplement shakes before/after workouts, while at work, and casein before bed. I also cycle my carbs and try to eat mostly slow digesting carbs throughout the day with the exception of eating fast digesting carbs when I wake up and post workout.

ugh, I took it up a notch last night and am really feeling it this morning. Not looking forward to moving my air compressor today and running 1" galvanized pipe through the rafters. I can barely get my arms above my head. fml

Planning on taking today off to heal a bit.

Hey Eagle, the other thing I forgot to mention is progress pics. It may sound a little weird but taking pics over the coarse of your transformation is a great way to see where your at and what parts of your body need more attention. Trying snapping a couple pics once a month and you'll really start to notice the change.

Good progress for sure. I'll never see 180s again. I trimmed some fat, now I'm bulking w/min protein intake. Today scale said 237. As soon as I start taking it more often I'm going to start shaping up (adding to that #) quick I have a feeling.

Your pretty tall so there's no reason for you to cut to 180s anyways. If you bulk and gain 10lbs of soild muscle over the winter then try to cut down to 200-220lbs your going to look like a f%cking MONSTER!!! I'm going to stay as lean as possible till race season is over then bulk over the winter and cut back down to 185 in the spring. Just remember, the lighter we are the faster our cars will run lol!!!

I can be heavier and just turn up the boost a little!

I've NEVER been lean. Even when I was in HS at my prime I had a little cushion, no matter that I could run a mile in 5:45. I'm starting to actually feel stronger now than I was then... kinda getting scary in a good way.

What do your guys' daily food intakes look like? I can't seem to get a good medium from day to day. I write down what I eat along with the calories(truthfully estimated usually...ha), but can never seem to find a nice spot that will work the best. Daily I'm at anywhere from 1,500 to 2,200. I don't take anything, I used to do protein shakes but didn't seem to feel that helping enough to continue to spend the money. My weight right now is about 216 if that helps.

Truthfully, I don't track my intake at all. I try to be reasonable. Workout days I allow myself a few more calories only cuz I get jittery if I keep my intake low. Normal days I try to get 1 protein shake in during the day, lunch is a sammich and some veggies, dinner is suaully something remotely healthy, but I tend to eat the most at dinner.

But then stuff like Lukes sneaks up on you and throws it off. I dont have the discipline to steer clear of those days yet.

My wife tracks her stuff EXACTLY every day. It's worked miracles for her. So obviously there's something to say for tracking religiously.

Yeah I can tell that my habits are a bit better after starting to track what I eat. But I'm like you, and haven't been able to kick those bad days out as much. The last couple weeks I've had a few Lukes-style nights

Pizza is ok, not great, but ok. Just don't eat the entire thing yourself.
