    This is the start of my bulking journal. At the start of this program, I will have just finished the Waterbury 10/10 transformation. I'll be continuing with another Waterbury plan - Anti-Bodybuilding Hypertrophy. Update: going to do WS4SB.

    Weight:
    175.5 end of 10/10
    184.0 end of 1-week deload
    174.5 :( 10/18/08

    Congrats on making the commitment to chase down the big 1000...:spaz:

    :gl:

    Just keep in mind that it is a war of attrition....it's not a race...:nope:

    Take it at a pace that your body (and form) can handle.

    I'll definitely be following along!

    I suspect that the 10/10 has indeed added a decent amount of lean mass - I'm not necessarily thinner, but the weight redistribution is pretty nice. I finally look like someone who works out, and I'm starting to get the classic V shaped upper body.

    I've got 3 more workouts (Today, tomorrow, and Thursday - no days off), then I'm doing a few days off from lifting to recover from the TBT. My joints really need it - I think I may have really overdone some of the exercises after reading some of Chico's thread about SLDLs and keeping your knees from locking out. I've been having pain in my hip where the ball and socket connects and also the back of the knee. I made some corrections to my form, but I think I need some time off to heal.

    I'm really excited to try out my max lifts for the big three (actually 4 since I'm doing the press as well). This bulk will focus on the Chest and Delts primarily and the quads/hams as a second. I'm pretty happy with my back and trap development, so I'll be doing mostly weigthed chins and pulls rather than full-on back workouts (of course I'll be doing a variety of deads too).

    Thanks to everyone upstairs for being such great inspiration!

    Good luck Billy. You can do it. It will be interesting to follow your progress and get some motivation from your efforts.

    Thanks, I hope not to disappoint. I'm shooting for 3lbs a month, I know I can add the weight - I'm just hoping it's lean. ;)

    Just saw your pictures, great work and a nice transformation. Waterbury seems like good stuff.

    Looking forward to your future success also!

    cheers

    Thanks!

    I'm just putting my nutrition plan together. :bang:

    This is by far my least favorite, although I think I settled on my macro ratio - I just need to set my meal times and figure out my supplements. I still have a few days, so I'm not getting too upset - hopefully I can talk Mastover into checking it out and giving me some tips.

    Think I'm going with a 35/45/20 split as such:

    Code:
    	
    	F	C	P			
    6:00	5	55	36				
    8:30	5	55	36				
    11:30	5	55	36				
    2:00	5	55	36				
    4:00	0	20	10	pre-wo			
    5:00	0	55	30	PWO		
    6:30	20	30	36				
    9:00	20	1	36						
    total	60	326	256
    
    
    Shooting for 2900 cals, which I know is low but my plan is to really limit fat gains. If I'm not gaining after 2 or 3 weeks, I'll keep adding 200 cals until I do.

    First bulk workout!

    Squats:

    5 x bw
    5 x 45
    5 x 135
    5 x 185
    3 x 225
    1 x 245
    1 x 265
    1 x 285 (New PR) :spaz:

    Standing Calf Raise
    3 x 17 x 255

    Stiff leg deadlift
    5 x 135
    5 x 205
    3 x 5 x 245

    Cable Crunch
    3 x 15 x 50

    I was going to superset leg curls/extensions but I thought I'd wait and see how bad my DOMS is tomorrow - will probably do them next week.

    Holy freaking god. As the day wears on I'm in more and more pain. I need to get home so I can take a few ibuprofen or a horse tranquilizer.

    Thanks!

    Diet yesterday was not where I wanted it to be - I missed my last meal of Cottage Cheese and Natty PB because I fell asleep. I could barely keep my eyes open and missed the end of Fringe. :(

    Today I'm going to do a chest workout - I'm not going to plan too much ahead of time. I'm sure I'll do BPs and dips, but I'll figure out the rest when I start.

    I'm considering going back to WS4SB for another run, I don't think I ran that long enough to get much out of it.

    Diet was spot on as posted above.

    Today's workout:

    Bench Press
    10x45
    10x95
    5x135
    3x155
    3x175
    0x195
    10x135

    Incline DB fly
    10x40
    3x12x70

    Dips
    7xbw
    5x20
    3x5x40

    decline Skullcrusher (ez bar)
    10x40
    3x5x80


    Good workout - not great. I was pressed for time, I had band practice and had to make meals on the go and try and play with the baby. Reasons, not excuses... I should have spent more time warming up, I think I could've got 3x195 benches had I done some light cardio and another warmup set at 115 and perhaps one at 145.

    I was pleased with dips, and my tri's were screaming for about an hour. I think my chest will be pretty toasty tomorrow.

    I asked Mastover to look at my nutrition plan and make some comments - he graciously gave me some different numbers to work with and I'll be making some changes this weekend. I'm pretty close to what he's recommended, so it's not going to be a complete redesign.

    I'll be getting my VS and CP either today after work or tomorrow from Vitamin Shoppe. I find the convenience of buying local, plus the reward points at the end of the year actually make it cheaper. I should be getting about 15% back, and they send me good coupons all the time.

    I don't buy certain things from them (Xtend being one of them) because they are just out of their minds (+$20 from other vendors), but like everything a little shopping saves you big.

    Workout tonight will be back and shoulders, probably:

    Deadlift, building to 3RM
    Chinup
    Military Press
    BB Rows
    Weighted Leglifts

    I've been looking for online promo codes before I make the purchases and I have gotten lucky a couple of times. Make sure you look for coupons from the stores your buying from. You'll be surprised what a 15 second search can save you.

    Weighed in on Saturday, came in WAAAAY under where I'd thought I'd be. I'm not going to make any adjustments yet, I'm going to take another week and see where I am. I've been eating a ton, but I've also been ummmm... eliminating more than normal, I can attribute this to an increase in fiber from all the oats/cheerios.

    I'm beginning WS4SB, which will be my official bulk protocol. Last week was just a shock to the system to get it prepared and see where my strength was after the summer cut. My squat came up, but my dead went down by a bit. This is an ok tradeoff for me since my squat was really lagging, and I know I'll get back my deadlift in no time.

    Woo hoo! Another WS4SB's! We should start a club!

    EDIT: I just did.

    Are you running version 1,2, or 3?
