In the past, I wouldn't do 93% of the number - I just found that to get 2-3lbs a month gained, I could add 250cal to my burn # and this would yield that sort of weight gain. But, like I said, playing things very safe cuz I legit just wrapped up dieting

After a week of doing the 93% thing, I will add a small surplus to it and then re-assess to see how things are.

I'm just about to transition into cutting and got a bodymedia fit. According to it, I burned ~3100 cals today.

I worked out legs but it's not like I walked around too much or anything. I weight ~145 lbs. Does this seem high to you? Or will it become more accurate over time? If you feel that this is more appropriate for a PM, lemme know! Don't wanna derail your log.

Thumbs up love your work

Subbed.

I have a very similar bulking plan to yours, although without the Bodybugg (I'm saving up for one) I am following a very slow transition into higher calories.

Basically adding 100 Grams of carbs per week until I see the scale start moving upwards. I only want to see a weight gain of around 500 grams per month, Focusing on my strength gains and recovery more so then weight gain.
You have actually encouraged me to start my own bulking log.


I look forward to seeing many more pics of cheesecakes fella. Train hard mate

Today is a rest day. But lots of NEAT ahead and drumming. 174.9lbs today. Weight has been still going down ... cals last night were just shy of 3,800, I was actually in a 20 cal surplus as per the BB readings. OH NO!!!

Here is how I looked this morning: http://imgur.com/EH24v2E

Still feel semi puffy in certain areas and have water retention when I wake up so who knows what "true weight" actually is, given that it's been steadily dropping day to day since starting this "maintenance" calories for the past couple days.

I dunno, bro. It's largely irrelevant to fret over. Just monitor your weight daily to get an idea of the readings, track your food, remain consistent and see how things unfold.

I've had gnarly cal burns of 5,900+ ... waiting for those days. SOON.

Thanks! Two pieces of the Smores cake left. Probably will finish it tomorrow. And either tomorrow, or Monday I am baking this one: http://www.tasteandtellblog.com/rees...er-cheesecake/

I am doing a cheesecake every 4-5 days as per this list... in order. Yeah, I'm amazing: http://www.buzzfeed.com/rachelc19/20...t-tonight-4emp

Oh, also, on another note... Sleep has been really bad these past couple weeks. Likely from dieting. Gym performance these past couple days have been AMAZING, but sleep is really bad. 5-6 hours a night. Naturally waking up very early as well... 7am, 8am. Used to wake around 10am. It's OK cuz I can get work done in the morning, but this is an interesting thing to note.

Quick update, more later...

Today is Legs 2. Finished cheesecake. Making another one tomorrow.

Last night I figured "treat yourself", so my cals were at 3,500 (20 over my 93% burn) and had an additional cheesecake slice which probably put me over 4,000.

Today I woke up and I am .2lbs lighter than yesterday. Weight has still been dropping since eating more: 174.7 today

You should do reverse pyramid rather than standard pyramid, so start with your heavier weight then work down to the lighter weight, it's more efficient.

@ oval61251 ... yeah, I am still trying to figure out how to work an RPE system, plus, I don't even know what my "weights" are given that I have lost a lot of strength during my cut, getting a feel for things, etc. but yes, reverse pyramid training how I'd usually do things... still easing into it, man - go easy

Here's how I was looking during my leg workout yesterday:
http://imgur.com/VRZcB2L

I am quite surprised how full I look for what my weight was yesterday. It's very bizarre for sure.

Last night I made cabbage rolls and cheesecake. Just had two slices of cheesecake. This bad boy came in just under 9,000 calories for whole cake.. HAH!

Cheesecake:

Let's talk about the cheesecake before moving to the cabbage rolls...

It is a PB & Co White Chocolate, chocolate egg nog, Reese's/Oh Henry Chocolate bits cheesecake with a Reese's cereal crust. The topping is milk chocolate melted in with simmered chocolate egg nog topped with Reese's minis. It is a very healthy source of calcium and other essential nutrients!

My burn yesterday was 4,000ish and cal intake was 3,600 or so. Still going off of the 93%. My sleep was really bad and I woke up 2.8lbs heavier today but that is pre-poop which I am gonna do after writing this post.

As for yesterday's workout:

Legs 2

Glute Bridge
185 x 10
205 x 10
225 x 10
245 x 10

Reverse Hyper
36 x 2 x 12

Hack Squat
1p 25 x 10
1p 35 x 2 x 8
2p x 8

DB Walking Lunge
40 x 3 x 10

Leg Curl
105 x 2 x 10
115 x 2 x 8

Seated Calves
1p x 3 x 12

Standing Calves
3pps x 10
3pps 25ps x 3 x 8

Cable Crunch
75 x 12
85 x 3 x 12

I am gonna swap the leg extension on day 1 with walking lunges and put the leg extension after the hack squat. I haven't done DB walking lunges in a long time and really felt em in my glutes which I think would be a nice addition to the glute heavy training that I am focusing on, especially on day 1.

Im guessing you just budget your "fun food" into your daily calories? I have had great success and results by doing Lyle's GBR over a years period, picked up 20lbs without too much fat gain. My opinion is to go with that and not worry about specialization training at this point you should'nt be worrying about any "lagging" body parts. His routine is very well balanced and should place mass on you evenly throughout.

The cat shirt automatically adds about 15% to strength levels, so good call.

Also, the reeses cheesecake is basically a little piece of heaven
