a biggest loser type challenge has been issued at my work starting tomorrow and lasting 60 days. figured i log my progress here, since this is where i've been getting my inspiration from for the last year +. there are two categories in the challenge, one for most fat lost and the other is for most lean mass gained. i've signed up for the lean mass gained, since there are more fatties around here than skinny people. in the past year i've gone from 192lbs+ to ~162lbs and i've been stuck there for the past couple of months. i'm 5'7 on a good day. i figured it would be better to attempt the lbm challenge, since i've been down to 155lbs before and felt skinny and weak. that's only 7lbs from where i'm at now. diet will more than likely look something like this: meal1 - super mega awesome shake that i have every day: 8oz water - 2scoops ON - 1/2c quaker oats - 1/2c frozen bluberries - big tbsp of adam's natty pb. meal2 - nature's valley granola bar + handful of almonds meal3 - 7oz can of tuna - 2tbsp kraft light zesty italian w/evoo - 1tbsp sweet relish and 2 pieces whole wheat bread meal4 (pre workout) - Yoplait non-fat yogurt and 1 scoop ON (post workout) 2 scoops ON + 20oz gatorade. meal5 - chicken breast, brown rice, broccoli meal6 (pre sleep) - 1cup lowfat cottage cheese w/ imitation vanilla and cinnamon Workout is basically Pur's routine w/ my current numbers: Mon - Legs 3x5 overhead squat w/ bar 3x5 back squat 135,185,195 3x5 front squat 115,125,135 3x10 romanian deadlift 135,145,155 3x10 leg ext 90,100,110 3x10 sitting leg curl 70,80,90 Tues - Chest 3x10 flat bench 135x10, 185x6, 185x4 3x10 incline bench 135x10, 145x8, 145x6 3x10 sets db fly 25, 30,35x8 2 sets weighted dips 2x15(bodyweight) Thur - back (i do these back to back for 3 sets) bodyweight pullups (wide) 15a,6b,4c front pulldown wide 85a-c cable row 70a-c behind the head 40a-c 3x10 bent over row barbell 65 3x5 deadlifts 135,185,225,245x2 fri - shoulders/arm 3x10 db press 40,45,50 3x10 cable side laterals 15 3x10 cable rear lateral 15 6x10 sets shrugs behind the back/front 105 bb tris 3x10 rope pushdown 80,90,100 3x10 sets french curl bar 40x3 3x10 sets reversed push down 80,90,100 bis 3x10 straight barbell curl 65 3x10 sets preacher curl curved barbell 55 2x10 sets hammer curl db 20 now some pics - me at 192lbs: (carry a lot of weight in my legs and love handles...) me boucning between 161-166lbs: suggestions are always welcome.
