    Weigh in update after some holiday damage

    Here's the update:

    Beginning weight Aug 24 - 117
    end of week 1 Aug 31 - 117.4
    end of week 2 Sept 7 - 118
    end of week 3 Sept 14- 117.6
    end of week 4 Sept 21 - 120.2 -
    end of week 5 Sept 28 - 117
    end of week 6 Oct 5th - 117
    end of week 7 Oct 12th - 118.5 TOM, increased cals to 2800, added creatine
    end of week 8 Oct 19th - 119.5
    end of week 9 Oct 26th - no weigh in - weighing only every second week.
    end of week 10 Nov 2 - 120
    end of week 11 Nov 9th - no weigh in
    end of week 12 Nov 16th - 120.25
    end of week 13 Nov 23rd - no weigh in
    end of week 14 Nov 30th - 120.25
    end of week 15 - Dec 7th - no weigh in
    end of week 16 - Dec 14th - no weigh in
    end of week 17 - Dec 20th - 122.75
    end of week 18 - Dec 28th - no weigh in
    end of week 19 - Jan 4th - 125.25

    I really expected this number to be higher than that considering all the shiit I ate over the last couple of weeks.
    The OBF contest I am in is over next week so I'll post some progress pics then. Then I will re-assess - maybe do a mini cut before resuming, or may just go to maintenance for a bit.

    I'll return later with yesterday and today's workout.

    Yesterday was leg day:

    Squats
    5*6 - 135lbs

    Deads
    5*4,4,4,3,2 - 175lbs

    Good Mornings
    5*5 - 65lbs

    Goblets
    3*9 - 50lbs

    DB Calf Raise
    3*25 - 50lbs

    Today - Arms

    Pushups
    5*20

    Pullups
    5*singles

    Hanging Leg Raise
    5*15,15,12,12,12

    DB Curl
    5*6,6,5,5,5 - 35lbs

    Tri Press
    5*8

    BB Curl
    4*12,12,12,10 - 50lbs

    Skulls
    4*12,10,8,8

    Here's a little teaser photo in preparation for next week My son loves to snap pics so when he says " Mom, can I take a picture of your muscles?" I had to oblige.

    Sun Jan 6th 2013

    Well yesterday I worked out in the evening as opposed to 1st thing in the morning empty stomach. This is my first evening workout in probably 5 yrs! Anyway I had an AMAZING workout. Not sure if I can attribute this to food in my belly or if it was just a fluke. So I am gonna experiment with this and see how it goes

    Back and Traps:

    Started with a 5 round circuit of pushups, pullups and hanging knee raises:

    Pushups - 5*20
    Pullups - 5*2,2,1,1,1
    Hanging Knee Raise - 5*20,20,20,15,15

    Rack Deads
    5*1 - 205lbs - Yeah Buddy!

    BB Rows
    4*5 - 125lbs. Bring it on baby!

    One arm Row
    3*12,10,8 - 35lbs

    Upright Row
    5*5 - 70lbs

    DB Shrug
    3*8 - 50lbs

    Then finished off with 20 min LISS - 10% incline, 3-4mph.

    LOVED THIS!!!!

    Be back later with tonight's workout

    In. Girl I will never understand how you can eat that much, have great strength, and stay that lean. It's baffling! Anyhoo... you look great! How long are you bulking for?

    Thanks girl! I am as baffled as anyone else. I mean, I am a middle aged woman....isn't your metabolism supposed to slow down as you age?? I guess having a 5 yr old kid keeps me moving all the time How long will I bulk...I don't know. Fridays pics will make my decision..

    Pushups - 5*20
    Hanging Knee Raise - 5*20,20,20,17,15
    Pullups - 5*3,2,2,1,1

    Bench
    5*4,4,4,3,3 - 120lbs- went for a 5th rep on the first set - BIG FAIL! Got stuck under the bar and had to inch my out

    Incline DB Press
    2*6,5 - 45lbs
    2*12 - single arm - 25lbs

    Decline Bench
    2* 5 -120lbs
    2*7,6 - 115lbs

    Bradford Press
    5*5,4,4,3.5,3 - 55lbs

    We are similar ht and wt, so maybe I can ramp up my metabolism to your neighborhood one day. I can dream right?! I'm still experimenting with figuring out my maint. and bulking cals. I've gained 4# since I started increasing a month ago, but I've been at 129 for the last couple wks, eating an avg of 2400 a day. I'll bump it up soon if I stay here another week, but I have a hard time believing I'll be able to get away with more...

    We are similar ht and wt, so maybe I can ramp up my metabolism to your neighborhood one day. I can dream right?! I'm still experimenting with figuring out my maint. and bulking cals. I've gained 4# since I started increasing a month ago, but I've been at 129 for the last couple wks, eating an avg of 2400 a day. I'll bump it up soon if I stay here another week, but I have a hard time believing I'll be able to get away with more...
    I kept bumping up little by little. - 100 cals at a time until I hit 2500 cals - which was where I was at last bulk. I did not want to go higher than that as I was REALLY SCARED to eat more. At my coach's urging he convinced me to jump from 2500 to 2800 in one fell swoop. And I have to admit I fought him on this tooth and nail until finally he told me to just shut the f&^% up and do it. If I felt crappy, gained too fast, blah blah he promised I could go back to the cal level I was comfortable with. However I felt great ...stuffing myself constantly is a chore but my numbers in the gym have increased significantly and ...surprise surprise I did not blow up like the Pillsbury dough boy I wish I had listened sooner. Live and learn I guess.

    Seriously though... I'm thinking you are both ectomorphs.
    Absolutely NOT a fattie girl! I think at my age.....having a 5 yr old keeps the metabolism hoppin'

    So I am taking a rest week this week. And here is another shocker - my coach thinks its a good idea to keep my cal level at 2800. I am not so sure, but Imma do what I am told this time. I guess if I gain a ton I can always cut back after. But...its only a week, and I know when it comes time to lean out I can do it. I can lean out like nobody's business....so recovery at bulking cals. Who'd a thought????

    Other news - I no longer need a belt to hold up my fav pair of jeans. This is good news - means I am finally gettin some glutes! Next stop - bigger jeans

    Thank you! I will post updated pics periodically for sure Eat up, girl. Are you bulking too?

    So Rest Day #2. Spent the morning cleaning my son's room - toys, clothes, books, the whole shabang! Then after school I took him and his little girlfriend ice skating. I swear I burned 500 calories trying to get their damn skates on and tied

    I rewarded myself with 2 glasses of wine, though

    So you've been at 2800 since Oct 12th I think it was? And you were 118#? Is 126 your most current wt? If so it sounds like you found your 2-3# a month sweet spot. Did you notice a big difference in your strength when you bumped that high? I'm giving my 2500/a day another week, and I'll bump again if I'm still 129... 300 cals at a time sounds like a lot, but maybe your coach is on to something

    Yes that is correct and yes - big difference in strength when I bumped up that much. I should add that the extra cals we bumped were fats. Another scary thought to me at the time, but its working....my macros look something close to this most days: 300 carbs, 200 pro, 100 fats.....

    Are you doing any cardio right now?




    So Day 3 of rest and I am going nuts Spent the day house cleaning and researching some new workout plans. I have narrowed down to 3:

    This one I would roll right into phase 6,

    Any opinions or suggestions?

    Hmm... My protein is more like 130-150, fat 100-130, carbs somewhere in the 200's. So if I tried your coach's model it would be a lot more protein.

    I'm not doing any cardio, just 3 total body strength sessions a day. I haven't actually tried cardio for several months, but when I did most activities would aggravate my hip flexor- cycling, walking hills, jogging, stair climber, etc. I could get away with the elliptical as long as I kept the pace down. So, just eating and lifting

    I'm going to check those out when I have more time. I'll let you know what I think.

    And how does everyone reply to multiple lines at once with the responses in order? When I try to do that everything but my last response comes out shaded the same as the OP's text; hence everything of mine at the bottom right now.

    I'll try and explain multi quotes as best as I can - at the end of each post in the left hand corner there are 3 icons. Click on the middle icon ( the one with the - sign), then go to the next post you wish to quote and do the same thing. Once you have done this for every post you wish to quote , go to reply in the right hand corner. Then just fill in your comments between the posts and hit submit. Hope I explained that okay

    Day 5 - 2 more to go. Sun can't come fast enough. Still have not decided on a program yet. I better get on that!
