Training:
Rest day

I'm changing my workout split again. This week has been slightly modified. But beginning next week, I'm going to a 4-day split, plus an additional "bonus day" to hit some body parts a second time. And I will only be doing cardio once per week. This is my plan for the next 6 weeks or so. Depending on how I look around mid-February, I will begin my pre-contest phase somewhere between the end of February and mid-March, which would give me 12-14 weeks pre-contest for a June show.

Weight is steadily increasing, which is great!! The tweaking in my splits is working. I want to add a little more size (I'd like my weight to be around 115 lbs) before I begin pre-contest in 6-8 weeks. Looking at my progress photos, the added weight doesn't appear to be body fat. I will also be getting my % body fat done again soon.

Training:
"Bonus day" for a little extra emphasis on a few body parts

Warmup:
10 minutes on eliptical

Superset: 5 x 10
Cable curls
Cable pressdowns

Superset:
Db curls 5 x 10
Dips 5 x 20

Superset: 3 x 10, plus one to failure
Side laterals
Rear laterals

Smith machine squats: 5 x 15

Lunges: 4 x 15

Bench step-ups: 3 x 15

Leg curls: 1 x 50, used rest-pause until I reached the full 50 reps; first failure was around 33 reps

Stretching:
15 minutes

Nutrition:

Total macros:
Carbs 303 gm
Protein 149 gm
