Me: age: late 20's height: 6'0" weight: 182lb today (down from 200 a month ago ) Experience: On and off for about 10 years now. Never seem to stick with it for more than 6 months. I'm familiar with the basics, but know just enough to make myself look like a moron by asking stupid questions . Been playing around with the Bill Starr routine for about a month now, and I think I'll stick with it. Noob goal: increase big 3, basic strength, good form. Challenges: 1. Food: This is the big one for me; eating enough [good] food to reach caloric excess. I know some guys will eat pizza and all kinds of shit while they bulk, but I like the idea of a clean bulk; at least as the noob I am. I don't have a lot of disposable income (see #2), so eating quality will get $$$. 2. Sleep: I'm a student and I work, so it's rare that I'll get more than 4-5 hours of sleep on weeknights. Weekends are better, but I know that while you can run a sleep deficit, you never run a surplus, and there's no such thing as "storing up" sleep. 3. Unavoidable cardio. Usually twice a day durring the week, 35 minute stints that have my HR around 120-140bpm, which is midrange for me (naturally high heartrate ftl). This is going to make eating enough even more of a challenge. Any advice on what to do about any of the above is welcome. Current Supplements: 1. ON whey. Probably more per day than most people would think is good, I'll usually have between 4-5 scoops a day. 2. Primaforce CEE liqui-caps. 2gr before workout, 2gr immediately after. 2gr on an empty stomach on offdays, sometimes I do a second does (seems to help). 3. Fish oil. Fuck, why didn't i get the enteric coated stuff? 4. Centrum Performance (1/day). Will probably get some Adam or something similar in the future, but I need to use these up first.
