better off with an upper lower split

day 1 upper
day 2 lower
rest
repeat

bodybuilding is exhausting in a different way, more focused on small things than big things

Baklava.

I don't even know why I asked, I was never going to make pumpkin pie over baklava. Rolls or diamonds and what filling though? Prob do diamonds with pistachio since it's my first time making them.

Ah, true. This black dude I work with has some giant biceps and doesn't even work out.

Looking to cut some weight after gaining weight for ~18 months. I'm up about 15-20 lbs in that time frame, currently 6'5", 225-230 lbs.

 

Ballpark estimate from MyFitnessPal is that on a typical day I eat 3200 cal. 60 g carbs, 220 g fat, 250 g protein, 6000 mg sodium, 30 g sugar. I basically eat low carb when I cook at home. If I'm at a friend's place or out, I don't worry about eating low carb. That's only a couple times a week. Plus beer ~3 days a week.

 

Any quick recommendations beyond eating a lot less, or a target daily calorie intake? I figure I'll drink less beer. I'm not training for any kind of competition, just looking to cut some weight for the first time in my life. Maybe see what I can lose in about 2 months of dedicated cutting.

 

Should I make any adjustments to my workout plan? Right now, it's generally:

 

1. Chest/Triceps (push)

2. Back/Biceps (pull)

3. Legs

4. Off day, or 30-40 min cardio

 

Sometimes I'll do 20-30 min of cardio after push or pull day. Sometimes I take an extra off day or do 30-40 min cardio after pull day.

Hard to say if you should adjust your plan if you don't post your plan.

Sunday is the final day of the 4-week adaption cycle for the 4-day intermediate Sheiko program I am running.  My knees are starting to ache throughout the day.  Not sure if I am just being a bitch.  Will continue on with the program but be cautious if my body is telling me it is too much.

 

edit: tomorrow would normally be the last day of the week program-wise but my gym is holding a PL competition.  Hopefully I can stay long enough to see Tee Cummins hit a 1900+ total.  Heard he was growing to 242 but he cut down to 220 for his competiton a few weeks back.
