My workout is an upper/lower split, 4 days a week, focused on the main compound lifts with very little accessory work.
Sup blades. Today I decided that I'm going to start going on a 2000 cal diet, while continuing weight lifting 3 days a week and cardio on off days. At 6'2 200.7lbs, I'm not really overweight as I have some decent muscle (although most of that is in my back/legs), but I definitely have neglected my diet while bulking up. Before, I would easily get in 3-4k cals. Now, I wasn't just eating junk, but I was, hopefully, just eating too much. It's crunch time here, and I really wanna move in to the new place next month and be able to feel comfortable taking my shirt off and jumping in the pool. I know that might sound lame, but it's something to keep me motivated.
If I feel like 2000 is too little calories, like if I have no energy to work/work out, then I'll jump up to 2250 or something. I know ideally I would start at around 2500 and go down, but I don't have time to waste, so here goes. I'll be both weighing in and updating this post every day like a journal. I'll even be writing down every little thing I eat.
Current lift maxes
(for reference, will compare at end of 2 weeks):
Squat-255, Deadlift-340, Row-230, Bench-175, Press-140
Height: 6 2
Starting weight: 200.7
(I've always dreaded going on a diet like this, but I think it's what I need):
Lean meats (fish, chicken, pork), vegetables/green lettuces, fruits (mainly before/after exercise), brown rice, sweet potatoes, green tea
Whey protein, Fish Oil
Today is my off day, so I'll probably just do a few hundred pushups/chin ups at work for some cardio. Photos will be up soon.
