Week 5 update (early)

Okay. Here is my daily diet with what I weigh out and calories. Hope that is what you’re looking for. My diet rarely deviates from this. Maybe one day I’ll have a handful of nuts, or a few chip etc. But rarely and only limited. To be honest, this feels like a LOT of food to me so there really isn’t any desire to go off plan.

Im moving up again on the scale so I’ll keep this until I stall. The amount of rice is quite a lot so next, I’ll try adding in an extra banana and apple etc.

I’m sleeping better this week so I’m feeling better too. Gym progress this week is down but I tried lowering the weight and working more on each contraction. I think the first few weeks I was feeling so good I was chasing numbers a bit and losing that mind/muscle connection some. That might also help my joints feel a bit better too.

one other thing. So the end of last week I noticed that the outside of my right knee was bothering me after hack squat. In fact, I stopped mid set because I started to feel it during the reps. I’ve always loved hack and it’s never bothered me, even while doing full range of motion. Tried playing with my feet position and toe point, but it all hurt still. Only thing that has changed is the weight. Anyway, I’m gonna back off that movement for a week or so and come back to it and lower the weight a bit and see how it feels in 1-2wks.
Now, that I’m thinking about it…I did have to substitute in smith squats and after that was when it started bothering me. (I do these ass to grass) Wonder if I didn’t get my feet position right for my hips etc. Anyway, that may be it.
nice layout of the diet bro
 
End of week 6

So, the ground turkey. I just cook it in a pan and throw some pork seasoning on it because it’s supposed to be my “sausage” with my eggs. Really simple and easy.

So gym and lifts have been steady. I mentioned I was having some knee pain in my right knee so I’ve held off on doing hack squats or any variation. I’ve instead concentrated on my hams which is a weak body part for me. I’ve made some steady progress in that area so hopefully that will translate to increase in size…I know this will take several years of constant work to really bring it up but I’m game for that. Knee is feeling better, but I’m gonna hold off on Hacks for a few more weeks I think.

Next, I moved my HGH to the PM instead of the AM. It makes me really sleepy at work and that on top of fatigue from AM gym sessions…anyway. Still been having some issues with carpel tunnel. As I mentioned before, I think I’ve had an issue with the before ever starting on HGH. Any constant pressure on the back of my elbows brings it on. I had several nights that I had good sleep but the last 2-3 have sucked.

Lastly, I mentioned that my weight was dropping and the suggestion was to raise my calories across the board. Well, I did this and now, 2wks later, I’m just over 240. My total calories is just under 3800. I’ll tell you, I hear folks taking in 5K+ calories. I don’t see how in the hell they can do that. I’m so full all the time. Eating is become a chore. I might be able to push up to 4K for a few weeks but I don’t know how long I can handle that. Also, 240 was my goal weight and I planned on taking 12wks to get there. So I’m already there at 6wks. My starting weight was 230, so I know 10lbs is not that impressive, I just didn’t think I’d be able to do it. So I’m gonna go a few more weeks and just see if I can hit 250. Either way, in 3wks, since I’ve hit my goal…I’m gonna transition to a cut and see low lean I can get.
Also, I realize in the past when I tried to bulk it went okay but this time has been so much better. I realize I was just scared to push the calories up, never going past 3000. I’ve done a much better job at keeping the calories clean and pushing up the carbs. I’m excited to see how this will translate over to a cut since I have so much more wiggle room with calories going into it.

Anyway, thanks for the encouragement and suggestions.
