Cut down to -300 once per week b/c my nutrition isn't as clean as I like. Seems to be working well at the moment.

I do 500 over maintenance when bulking
500 under when cutting

you should try pull ups instead, harder but works the lats a lot more

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

A buddy of mine is a fitness freak and he just comes over and we work out in my basement workout room. Been going every day for just about 2 weeks and I'm already noticing resluts. I'm also eating a lot of vegetables and fruits and getting my protein.

That's great. There's no motivation like seeing noticeable, positive changes. Results will keep you hitting the weights more than anything else, honestly.

What sort of lifts are you guys doing? A lot of compounds? If not, I'd suggest incorporating as many compound lifts as possible. Because, if seeing results is what you want, compounds will get you there a hell of a lot faster than isolation movements - the curls, extensions, etc.

We try to mix it up a little. Cardio is my bread and butter. Not dying is my number two reason for being in shape, number one is keeping up with the woman.

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

I run 3 miles 2x a day. Once in the morning and the other in the evening.

MWF I focus on my legs. Squats, power clean, etc.

TTH I focus on the arms. Bench, curls, dumbells, jerks, deadlifts.

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

The thing i'm struggling with right now is the nutrition side of things. Here's what i've had today just for basis;

breakfast -
2 weetabix
semi-skimmed milk

dinner -
2 eggs
spaghetti
2 slices of thin sliced ham

And for tea i've got salad, with chicken and mash. I think i'm okay when it comes to meals, but it's snacks where I fail on. Has anyone got any ideas on the type of foods I should be eating? I understand that protein is pretty much the way forward, although everything seems to be in 100g's so how would I weigh my intake of protein? Just any suggestions would help, as I struggle with the nutritional side. I do eat a lot of fruit, and i'm rather sick of eating it constantly for snacks. There must be something else that's decent for snacking on.

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

^ tuna + wholemeal crackers

or yogurt, some walnuts and oats

or celary/carrot sticks and cottage cheese or hommus

or fruit salad

or a small tin of baked beans

really depends on what your goals are, what you like to eat etc. Try things out see if they work for you.
