  • Chad Byers' Progress Update #6 by Chad Byers


    Please note: This is Part 7 of a series of articles following Chad Byers' quest to gain 30 pounds of muscle in a year. To read/review Part 6 (where you will find links to the previous articles), please click here:

    It has been one month since my last update, and since then I have gained 2 more lbs. (current weight is 212 lbs.). My diet has remained mostly the same as last month, and I am still alternating between higher and lower calorie days. I am eating mostly raw fruits and vegetables with cooked food occasionally, but not every day.

    I am still eating a pre-workout meal on strength training days. This meal is in the morning 2-3 hours before my strength training session and includes 1/2 cup of oats and 1/4 cup of blueberries.

    My training has changed this month. On strength training days, I have gone to an upper body and lower body split. I have cut out all conditioning workouts.

    I have also increased the amount of Cell Block80 that I have been taking, from 2 servings/day to 3 servings/day, including one pre-workout.
