For it to be effective, you will most likely have to increase the total volume by doing more lifts per session to reach the desired stress within every single session. Intensity might also have to go down if you increase frequency. You will also spend more time training over the whole week, which will affect your recovery, calorie demands and possibly injury risk.

Hm, maybe i'll just do regular sheiko with some cardio and secondary excises on the other 2 days.

I take like a minute or so between warm up reps, and each working set takes about a minute or two to get positioned and do the lifts. So warm up takes like 5-10 minutes, and then each set with rest time takes about 5-6 minutes give or take. Even taking off the rest time for the last set, that's still ~30-35 minutes easy. So today I'm doing 5x4, and then a super set of tricep pushdowns and lateral raises. I will see how long it takes but I'm thinking it will be at least 45 minutes.

 

4 minute rest between sets sounds excessive, but I guess it makes sense at those weights? Also, I'm not sure what the point of doing bar warmups is if that's so far up from your working weight. I'd think that warming up with 135 would be more than adequate.

I also stopped using BB's so.../shrug.

For a 2.1k ish cutting diet 500 calories below TDEE, I eat about 150-200g of protein (195lb bw), 150g or less carbs, and 100-150g of fat. The main reason I like fat is it keeps me fuller than carbs do.

couldn't agree more

I wanna do slow bulk and hit ~170 to evaluate things there. I'm about 165 right now. I'll probably cut back down to 160 after sitting there for a month or two. I'd like to hit like 180 or something, but I doubt I'd be disciplined enough about eating this year to be able to get there in a way I'd be satisfied with.

 

I also wouldn't fit in any of my shit, so that's out of the question haha.

 

The happiest I've ever been with how I've looked is when I was a fighting 165. Hoping that doing the recomp stuff will help. It's crazy how much thicker everything looks when you can do front squats and bb rows haha.

At a decent low rep workload 4-5 minutes is OK. I used to take 6-7 minute breaks when I was deading heavy. And the bar set is kind of high speed to get blood to my arms and get my heart rate a little bit up.

Workout today was 5x4 bench and then 3 supersets of tricep pushdowns and lateral raises. I think I overestimated... I want to say the whole workout was ~35 minutes.

Where them compression shorts with short inseam? I like the Nike combats but my gym shorts have like a 3" inseam so usually they be poking through.

Yeah, do that instead or try to find another program that has you lifting more dys per week. After reading around, I don't think splitting sessions are good. Everything about Sheiko seems to be just that way for a reason. There are some CMS-routines that are 4-5 days a week. Anyway, I'd start with the routine on the forum for the class you qualify for.

 

I know some guys people who add accessory lifts on top of what is included in the Sheiko-rutines, so you could def do that. Usually direct work for arms, rear delts, lats , the core, and maybe some unilateral leg stuff. Some non-taxing cardio won't hurt either. Long term it will just help you cope with the increasing volume of lifts.

Just spent 17 dollars on lunch. Fucking whole foods. Then again, it was almost 2 lbs of food ahhaa.

On the other hand, I'm full as hell and it was a protein and fat delight!

 

I think I'm going to cap myself at about 1.5lb (~15 bucks) for lunch and eat most of it at lunch and some ~2 hrs pre-workout.


I started eating breakfast/coffee at home so I wouldn't spend a ton of money out and I sneak into a free dinner for residents every night so that's cool. End up getting a heaping plate of food for nada, but I have to stick around work till 9 haha. Such is the life of a research rat.

 

Do you guys take any pre-workouts? A couple of guys at the gym (residents included) have been trying to convince me to start.

One of my goals is to get as big as possible without outgrowing my interview suit, so... I guess I'm up to try whatever?

wouldn't structure your life around one suit. if you can grow and it causes you have to buy a new suit, its worth it to buy a new one.

I took trenbolone suspension once preworkout, was a bit intense.

$15 for lunch is crazy. Most I spend is like $5, now I just do 2 shakes of protein flour, coco power, 1 scoops of whey and almond milk.


The suits I wear for work are about $50, give no fucks about them and they look good on me.

Fat = flavor except when you are full and you still have like 2 to 3 pork ribs left and you look down on your plate and see all that fat trimmings makes you wanna barf.
