Ok i'm gonna attempt a journal again just to keep track of progress. This year I just want to grow in size not really worrying about bodyfat since cutting is a lot easier for me. I'm currently 175lbs at ~12% body fat. My current plan is HSS-100 by CT it is a 16 week routine with 4 stages my diet is semi clean diet as I have a tough time gaining weight. Here is what I have done so far as I just started this routine on Tuesday. Plans for this year: -Duruing high volume phase of routine will eat only red meat (any suggestions if I should eat a fatty cut or a lean cut?) -Cut for 2-3 weeks inbetween routines to keep fat minimal. -Throw in LISS on off days -Work on abs more -Incorporate more olympic lifts Current Supps: VPX NO Shotgun - I really like the energy it provides I like the this one Matrix 5.0 Protein ON fish oil caps ON multivitamin Creatine Mono Xtend Tuesday Front Squats 4x8 A1 leg extensions 3x12 A2 leg press 3x10 bulgarian split squats 4x10 leg press 1x100 Wednesday Bent over rows 4x8 A1 wide grip cable pull downs 3x12 A2 chest supported rows 3x10 Rack pulls 4x10 cable rows 1x100 haney shrugs 5x5 machine shrugs 1x100 All I gotta say is this program is pretty damn brutal no matter how little weight I use I cannot do 100 reps non stop. I guess I'll have to build my way there but wow am I sore. I really haven't been this sore since I first started working out. I usually don't like body split routines but the program looks fun and interesting it also allows variety. Its kind of strange my legs were not so sore the day after but 2 days after they're like even more sore?
