So I'm new to this whole bodybuilding scene. I've been reading my ass off for about 5 months now, trying to absorb all the knowledge possible.
I tried Max-OT, and loved the workouts but hated how I didn't feel my muscles were being hit as hard as possible in terms of hypertrophy.
I tried a higher volume approach, and loved how I felt "pumped" and such but hated how my weight never increased.
So I finally grew a set and tried out P.H.A.T. and I love it!!!
I am actually carrying quite a bit of fat so I'm cutting, but I'm one of those strange people who can get stronger on a cut. And I don't cut too drastically.
So without further ado, here is some info:
Weight: 208 lbs --> I started dieting in mid-February and I was 221-224 (somewhere in that range)... my diet hasn't been completely consistent but if stuck to I go down 1-1.5 lbs per week.
My goal weight is actually about 180, and I think I have a fair but of muscle underneath all of this fat. The goal ATM is going to be building my strength and muscle endurance.
Here's the program:
Day 1: Chest/Back Power
Day 2: LISS Cardio +Shoulders/Arms Power
Day 3: Lower Power
Day 4: LISS Cardio + Abs (at home) + Foam Rolling + Full Stretch
Day 5: Chest/Back Hypertrophy
Day 6: LISS Cardio + Shoulders/Arms Hypertrophy
Day 7: Lower Hypertrophy
Day 8: LISS Cardio + Abs (at home) + Foam Rolling + Full Stretch
Day 4 and 8 look like hard work, but trust me I take it pretty easy with the LISS Cardio.
Anyways, I would love criticism because I am a bit indecisive in terms of bodybuilding. One thing I know is that I AM comfortable with this workout program... not so much with my macros, which are the following:
60F/145C/260P... I log my stuff on FitDay and will be posting my macros every day.
Thanks to anyone who gives me comments or advice, it is not expected. I am mostly trying to use this just to log my workout info for myself, but maybe one day I will be able to look back and see the progress I have made step by step... That being said I am seeking criticism if possible!
