No problem Dylan. I have already completed this program before and got massive gains; 30% on all compound lifts. Any suggestions on content people on the forum would like to see would be much appreciated (workout videos, recipe videos along the way etc).

4g creatine

Late Night snack (yet to have) : Rice protein (1 scoop), 1 cantaloupe and 2 bananas

29/1/2013

First official day of Bill Star's 5x5 with a video!

517C/52F/156P 3211 Calories

3 grams creatine pre-workout (creatine phosphate levels spike to 125mmol/L within 3 hours after ingestion then decline, allows you to workout longer and harder)

I should be well over this sickness by tomorrow and back on track to hit PR's within the next 2 months. Goals to beat are 140kg squat, 180kg deadlift and 100kg bench press.

Thanks guys,

John

Off day:

30/01/2013

3grams creatine

597C/57F and 264P!!! 3848 Calories

Underestimated the protein calories in soy milk. 1 scoop not two scoops of rice protein with soy milk shake next time.

Need some scales so I can track my weight. I'll probably just measure myself at the gym today anyway. It's 1am and I just feel like smashing the weights tomorrow!

Edit: Date added.

All of that is good, keep doing what you're doing, I don't think you need suggestions really.

Off day:

01/02/2013

No Creatine!

792C/39F/141P 3922 Calories

Ate lots of bananas, rice protein poweder and ate out at a vegan restaurant (Vegie Bar in Fitzroy, Melbourne if you know it)

PS: Tell me if you live around Melbourne and we could exchange vegan info over a coffee.

Not going to go into exactly how much of everything I ate was very limited, except for dinner. Early morning and late night the day before :(

Also had a soy and rice protein shake before I went to sleep, not a good day :(

This is what I had with me on my 6 hour trip today, no excuses.

Training tomorrow.
