Pauls training and nutrtion log (constructive criticism plz)

#1 Postby killer_octave » Tue Dec 28, 2010 1:18 pm

Hey all
I am coming off a 6 month break from the gym feelin pretty weak and frail but im gonna push through and see if i cant whip my ass in shape. I am 5 11 168 pounds the skinniest ive ever been. i was walking around at 185 pounds about a year and a half ago before i went vegan.

today was my first day back in the gym routine as follows:


dY 1

Dips 10 reps body weightx2

wide grip pullups 10 reps assisted at 50lbs x2

sqauts 10 reps at 125lbsx2

military press 10 reps at 60lbs x2

calves 10 reps at 90lbsx2

abs 15 reps bodyweightx2

ive chosen to do low weight high reps and hopefully add reps everytime i do this routine and eventually up the weight.



Okay now for diet:

breakfast: apple,tangarine, 1 cup oats with handfull almonds and 1/2 cup pumpkin seeds, water

after workout: Protien shake which includes rice milk, 1 scoop nitro fusion, tablespoon hemp oil, vitamin d drops, banana handfull pumpkin seeds, water

lunch: sweet potatoe curry served over 1cup rice cooked, water

snack; almond cashew butter and banana sammich, water

dinner: marinated portabella mushrooms mashed taters and greens


Okay i need your help guys i want to gain a little weight and some lean mucle back, so constructive criticism is welcomed.

agreed. Glad to see the bulk protein coming through also. I am a firmm believer in 1+ grams per lb of bw.

I've learned over the years to always do WAY less then you anticipate being able to do when starting up again after a break. Smart call on your part. I was off for 1 3/4 yrs myself and just got back. Started off with 30 min 3-4 times pr week and 9-12 sets and gradually over the course of a month went to 4-5 times pr week, 1+hr per session 12-18 sets and from high reps to lower reps (15 to 10). After consistency everything else just seems o come together naturally. You can do it, you got this!! 8) :wink:

Look forward to checking back and seeing your continued progress.
Where do you get your protein?

Nice!

Keep at it man. I got the skinniest I have been since I was a teenager from a more than year-long absence from training to do other things.

I'm back and climbing that weight ladder again too.

All the best!

I don't know about your diet. Maybe I am eating too much, but what most of the poeple here post as one day food, I actually eat in 1 or two sittings. I think you should eat more, and I think carbs. I don't think it's good idea to eat pumpkin seeds (I LOVE THEM!) and almonds before workout. Fats slow you down. You need more carbs before working out. Leave fats for the evening. And again: you should eat more. If you can't eat that much, blend your food and eat. Thats what I do most of the times. I gained 10 kg in half year eating like that. But what I mean is, let me give you my todays menu:

blended 7-10 bananas (depends on size) +3 spoons ground chia seed as breakfast
2-3 cups self-made hummus with loads of tahini + 1/2 kg whole wheat bread lunch
4-5 apples as snack
250 g pasta (before cooking) with some tomato sauce for dinner + head of broccoli
and 100 g of almonds blended with water and roughly strained to get milk, before bed

no protein powder at all;)
and lots of lemonade with no sugar...

I used to believe that, since it was on the back of my Whey Protein Powder when I was in high school.

I keep hearing conflicting figures about that... like

1g protein/1kg body weight

or

0.7- 2.2g protein/1kg body weight.

What figure is correct. Getting 170g of protein is a little hard for me, or even cost effective on my unemployed college student salary
