Well I'm starting a journal. I don't know if I will get comments/tips or whatnot and maybe it will be a comeplete waste of time...hopefully!
I just turned 19 years old and I have 5 1/2 months to get strong as I can before I go back to college. I am currently 180 lbs pound, 5' 11" and at approx a 10-12 percent bf. The most I've ever been was 190 lbs. I've been weightlifting a bit more than a year now, almost exactly a year actually. However, I've only had a good training program for the past 4 1/2 months. The biggest thing I started doing in the last 4 1/2 months is...training LEGS.
I'm one week into a cut and diet/training is going great. I've also started doing HIIT twice a week. I'm on a low carb/refeed diet.
As for supplements I am currently using the following:
Whey, fish oil capsules, multivitamin, lean fuel extreme(which I've already had fantastic results), and glutamine.
I train 4 times a week. My program is as follows.
monday - chest/triceps
tuesday - back/biceps
wednesday - HIIT cardio for 10-20 minutes/rest
thursday - shoulders/traps/grip/calves
friday - quads and hamstrings
saturday - rest
sunday - HIIT cardio 10-20 minutes/rest
I've been training at a high intensity for the past 2 months and I'm going to start my training journal with an unloading/active recovery phase for a week. I know I know, what a way to start a journal. In a week I'll be back to with a much higher intensity.
Thanks to anyone who wishes to follow this. If anyone wants to support me on this journal I will gladly do likewise.
