    The Meltdown - Pylon's Journal V 3.0






    With school being over in 2 weeks, I'm almost ready to commit time to the gym again. I've decided I want to start with a hard cut, and the 6 week program in last months M&F caught my eye. I'll spend the next couple of weeks getting ready to start, getting the wieght range set up, working through the exercises to shake off the rust, and be ready to go after I'm done with classes. Official kick off date will be Monday the 26th.

    The program is 6 weeks of cycle training. W/outs are every other day, alternating between BB and DB workouts. Cycles are run 3 times, 20 reps, with minimal rest. Intensity increases each week, going 30, 40, 40, 50, 60, 60 % of 10RM on each lift. Here is the list...

    BB day
    deadlift
    Bench press
    squat
    BO row
    OH press
    romanian DL
    upright row
    incline bench press
    lunge
    dips

    DB day
    deadlift
    incline db press
    step-up
    1 arm db row
    db lunge
    romanian DL
    OH DB press
    side row
    bench dip
    DB squat

    Like I said, the next couple of weeks are just to shake off the rust and figure out approx max on each move so I know what to do for the program. Should be a good time.

    I also expect to be on the boards more, so I will try to keep up with everyone. Keep in mind, if I'm not on the board, I'm probably not in the gym.

    It's a far cry from the HIT plan I was on last time I was really going, but the goal is a little different too. I will likely go back to the HIT program after the 6 week cycle.

    Thanks guys. Looking forward to getting back at it seriously. It's amazing how much you miss is after a little time off.

    I'm spending this weekend enjoying time with the family and food. Had a graduation party for my nephew yesterday (complete with cake, wings, BBQ, etc.) Headed to the movies today (Cars, for the boy), probably lunch while we are out. Tonight will be grilling a mess of chicken, stocking up on veggies for the week. Also sorting out supps for the coming plan. So far it looks like this, with w/out around noon:

    AM - 10g glutamine, 400mg caffeine, 90mg green tea, 5g arginine, multivitamin, 2.4g omega3 complex, 1.25g calcium citrate, 1g psysillium husk, 2g glutamine sulfate

    2 hours pre w/o - 400mg caffeine

    1 hour pre w/o - 5g arginine (empty stomach)

    45 min pre-w/o - 40 g slow carbs, 20g whey, 5g creatine, 10g glutamine, 90mg green tea

    post w/o - 80g fast carbs, 40g whey, 5 g creatine, 10g glutamine

    evening - 90mg green tea, 5g arginine, multivitamin, 2.4g omega3 complex, 1.25g calcium citrate, 1g psysillium husk, 2g glutamine sulfate

    Daily intake to include 300g protein, min 150 oz water

    Thoughts? Suggestions?

    Cars was very good. It's longer than most Pixar flicks, and stretched the patience of our 3 yr old, but we all enjoyed it. Make sure you get in a bathroom break before it starts, then enjoy!

    OK, prepped and ready to get started in the AM. Picked up the sups I needed for the cycle, got everything entered in my calendar on my blackberry to remind me of what I need and when. Plan to relax tonight, get a good night's rest, and start the 2 week ramp up to the new program in the AM.

    It's about 15 right now, mostly because some of what I put on the schedule I already had, just in smaller amounts, so have to take more of each one to get the amounts I want.

    See above for the list...

    A slight change of plans for this week. Once I got to the office I started have some...um...minor...intestinal...issues. Nothing serious, but not the kinda thing I want to take to the gym, you know?

    So, new plan is to start the rust-off tomorrow (full body BB), which may actually work better. I have a final in Marketing tonight, so I will be better focused if I'm not dead. (That's just a guess, of course.) Plus it puts me on track to do cardio Wednesday, then a full body DB workout Thursday before softball (weather permitting). That should make sure I am loose for the game and not tied in knots.

    Ordered the rest of the sups I need for this run today, should be here by the end of the week. Very exciting!

    I think that's a good idea Py. I've already decided to get some prizes together....so if you no one else does -- that's cool with me. I don't mind.
