    Goodfellows gains log

    Alright I wanted to write something up and get feed back for where Iím at right now because this is the most serious Iíve actually been about eating right, not drinking and excercising with good technique and programming.

    So Iíve been off for about a month and I am just eating around 4000 calories a day and staying consistent with the gym trying to keep some of what I got on cycle. Iím 27 and sitting at 175 with I would guess around 12%bf. All and all Iím feeling pretty good considering my body is probably making shit for testosterone. There was a week there that was pretty tough but I just dug it out and tried to stay motivated. Iím ready to get everything back to normal and start making natural strength gains again.

    Honestly the last week and a half is where I started actually focusing on eating right and tracking my calories. Iím pretty much just following the fitness pal app and eating healthy Whole Foods. 450 carbs 200 protein and 120 fat on average I would say. Iíve actually been feeling amazing in the gym and healthier in general compared to randomly eating bullshit before. I plan to do this bulk till I hit 190 or for about 8-10 weeks.

    Im hoping this log will help me stay motivated and focused on my road to getting bigger. Iíll try and read through some of the others and see how you guys update your logs and probably follow suit. Looking forward to hearing tips or feed back.

    Wanting to go from 175 to 190 in 10 weeks while off cycle might be a bit aggressive. I think there could be too much fat gain in there for your liking.

    Ya I’m noticing that i guess. i can maintain right now but I haven’t really been able to go up in weight. The good part is so far I have kept most of what I gained on cycle. But as far as hitting 190 I was just questioning whether I should have a time frame on my bulk or should I just continue to bulk(within reason and health) until I reach my goal weight.

    If it were me, I'd try to maintain my newly gained weight for a bit, get used to the new weight before making another run at gaining. To each their own though.

    I'd focus on my new nutrition requirements. You did say that it's only been a week and a half where you've been trying to focus on nutrition. There's low hanging fruit there, get that dialed in.

    alright I’ll work on some maintenance for now. It’s pretty crazy how I can be around 176-177 at night then I wake up and I’m like 172-173

    That’s not crazy. That’s normal. That’s also why you weigh yourself In The morning, after The business.

    Alright did some heavy dead’s and pendlay rows today. Felt pretty good but I think I’m gonna go ahead and take a recovery day tomorrow.

    Hit 365 for 3 sets of 3 then a little cardio at 315 after. Been loving the pendlay rows after dead’s to keep my lower back from burning and getting too pumped unlike a typical barbell row.

    May try to start updating once or twice a week with programming, diet and weight.

    Damn strong work and you left a few reps on the table. You competing or considering it? You got 4 plates in ya on a bad day. Nice job!
