    Road to The stage

    Thought I should start a thread in the teen section vs. new comers since I've been here for a couple of months.

    Current transformation: 244-227 -14%bf +21lbs lbm (don't have specific bf% loss and muscle gain from 254-244)



    Wasn't happy with my results over the last 2 months so decided to amp my meal plan up a bit.

    Wake up: 1 scoop stim pre-workout w/ 50-60mins of cardio
    Meal 1: 16-20oz liquid egg whites w/ greens
    Meal 2: 50g protein shake w/ optional quest bar
    Meal 3: 8-10oz chicken or turkey w/ greens
    Meal 4: 8-10oz chicken or turkey 1/2 cup white rice w/greens
    Meal 5: 10oz seafood, steak, chicken, or turkey 4oz sweet potato w/ greens
    Meal 6: repeat meal 5 or 50-63g protein shake with 1Tbs peanut butter.

    Goal is to get down to 15%-18% over the next two months.

    I have no idea what my daily caloric intake is, never really been a fan of tracking calories.

    For the last 5 months i've been on a 5 day split normally go until I feel like I Need a rest day
    Monday: chest n tri's
    Tuesday: back n bi's
    Wednesday: legs n calfs
    Thursday: Arms
    Friday: shoulders n traps

    Normally I do main lifts with warm ups then 8-5-5-3-3 then acc. I do just regular 3x8-12, but my strength plateaued and it seems like my gainz are too, so i'm planning on switching to this for awhile. Actually made a thread wondering about good splits for mass and strength. As for my lifts, my deadlift and squat are embarrassing to say the least, yet my pulldowns and rows are pretty strong. Bench is alright I guess not really happy with any of my lifts for my weight and size.

    What do you squat and dead? You had a pic in your other thread where you were Low Bar Squatting, nothing looked out of the ordinary as regards form or that?

    I only squat ass to grass with a narrow stance normally and i'm not flexible enough to go heavy on a wider stance. But my squat is probably around 275 and my deadlift was 335 with awful form 4 months ago and havent been able to pick that up since. Bench is around 265, I feel like I should be alot stronger than I am. But when I started lifting again after a year long break my max bench was 155 squat was 185 and deadlift was 245, so the gains are there, but they have completely stopped for me. Havent gone up much if any over the last 2-3 months.

    As for side notes on my lifts, for the deads if I can get it off the ground I can do 3-5 reps with it, and the squats once I hit the bottom of the hole I can either get it up or not, I don't stall if I get out of the hole.

    Have you considered Jason Blaha 5x5 or something along those lines? Squat, Deadlift, Bench form the core of them routines and you hit them 3x/week, with linear periodization you can make impressive strength gains in 6 weeks, plus the overall metabolic cost of working all major muscle groups every workout lends itself well to cutting.

    As far as I'm aware, incorporating pause squats helps with strength and stability out of the hole, also deficit deadlifts for improving your initial pull strength.
