    Hey, this is my first (and far from my last) post on F and N--and probably the only/main reason I got a subscription, to be honest.

    I know you are probably sick and tired of yet another noob asking a bunch of dumb questions, but I know you guys know your shit and I'd rather trust you than some ass shat, or PT, plugging their goods.


    This is my workout:


    Day One
    Chest and triceps:
    • Bench press
    • Incline/Decline press (alternate weekly and use dumbbells and barbells for variety).
    • Close-grip bench
    • One exercise on weakness.
    • Pec flyes Press down
    • Overhead extension/skull crusher (alternate weekly).
    Day Two:

    Cardio and core:
    • Various Cardio.
    • Punch bag.
    • Core exercises: crunches, decline sit-ups, leg raises and obliques.
    Day Three:

    Back and biceps:
    • Lat pull down
    • Seated rows
    • Set of barbell rows
    • Shrugs
    • Reverse flyes
    • Deadlift
    • Preacher curl
    • Alternate arm curls (alternate standing and seating every week).
    • Concentration curls
    Day Four:

    Cardio and core:
    • Various cardio.
    • Punch bag.
    • Core exercises: crunches, decline sit-ups, leg raises and obliques.
    Day Five:

    Shoulders and legs:
    • Shoulder press
    • Arnold press
    • Front raises/back raises (alternate weekly)
    • Squats
    • Leg press
    • Leg extension
    • Leg curl
    • Calve raise
    Day Six and Seven:
    • REST!!!
    I will be starting it officially from Monday, 16th May and will keep track of it in a training log here. I'll be posting some pics soon, so you can mock my broliness. :noes:



    My diet will be something like:



    8am
    Oatmeal, two eggs, brown bread, pure fruit juice

    10am (post workout):
    Protein shake + piece of fruit

    12pm:
    Tuna + pasta + salad

    3pm:
    Piece of fruit

    6pm:
    Skinless chicken breast with rice, a sauce and potatoes.

    9pm:
    Protein shake.


    Any recommendations? (I'm expecting an "Eat more" response and maybe "A bit too many exercises in one session"!)


    Also, any tips on how to get rid off/satisfy my killer sweet tooth--if anything, that'll be what beats me. :hsugh:


    All stats (weight, height etc) will be posted this Monday.



    Thanks for having a look at this! :x:

    Good question...


    Essentially, I'm aiming to lose around 20lb's of flab at first and then go from there. But would that be counter-productive in the long run when I want to bulk up?


    Thanks for the link too.

    if you've got a decent amount of flab on you, you can still gain some muscle while losing that fat if you lift right, eat 2k or so and have high protein intake.

    i wonder if i'll get flamed for that?

    PWO you need simple carbs like sugar or even some plain sweets (to satisfy your sweet tooth), the sweeter the better because your body needs the nutrients fast and fruit does not provide this.

    Infact, fruit is one of the worst things too eat because Fructose in fruit is stored in the body at a later date, this does not create an insulin release to tranport all the nutrients and protein to your body

    I had intended to eat around 2k and drink around 60g of protein a day through protein shakes, the chicken/tuna etc would be extra. How's that sound?

    Would a sports drink (Lucozade) do the same job as the sweets? It replaces all nutrients lost during the workout and provides what you need (energy wise) PWO, supposedly.
