Ups `n Downs in Bodybuilding Part 5


Strict Diet MuscleAfter i bulked that muscle mass some time passed, spring came and along with it came sunny days, heat and i started wearing thin clothes, but in a particular day at school it hit me!

I went to school in a black short sleeve shirt and a colleague of mine told me:”Hey Johnny you`ve gone fat, look at your belly.”

Those words made me realise a thing, f*%k bulking and muscle mass, i`ve bulked enough and i waited for summer to come faster.
When summer came i`ve already had a plan in my mind with a strict diet and some basic exercises from P90X (i will talk about this program in a future post) and a bodybuilder routine.

Let the bulk (muscle mass) go away and say hello to a shredded body with lean muscle mass!

So let me explain my new workout and diet plan.
Diet Plan
I was used to eat unhealthy as i`ve told you in the previous parts, and that made me put a lot of fat along with the muscle mass.

I stopped eating:

  • white wheat bread
  • sweets
  • fried food
  • pork etc.
  • I stopped drinking sodas too and it was hard, i`ve noticed that i was a sugar addict in some ways, but i was determined to have a shredded body and get some lean muscle mass.

    I ate 5 times a day, every day for 3 months, meals that included: chicken breast (cooked in the oven, or grilled), lots of fruits (apples, oranges, bananas but after workouts because of the carbs, etc), dark rye bread (one slice per meal), a lot of tuna, oatmeal, boiled eggs, cheese, vegetables and generally healthy stuff. I drank 3-4 litres of water per day, and sometimes milk. Remember though bulking isn`t good if you don`t know the proper way to do it.

    From P90X i got the ab workout, some diet advices and a few plyometrics exercises.
    2-3 days a week i ran 1 mile to improve my cardio and in the same time i got a nice tan because i ran in the heat just wearing shorts when the sun was shinning 😀 to catch two rabbits in one shot.
    I went to the gym 4 times a week and had a normal workout program:

  • Monday- Chest
  • Tuesday-Back & Biceps
  • Thursday- Triceps & Shoulder
  • Friday- Abs & Legs
  • In 3 months i got my body from 87 kg to 73 kg and i really was shredded. I got V- shape abs and it was nice to have a body like the models from GQ.

    Bulk isn`t an option! 🙂

  • Whilst I believe the post is on the proper road there are actually two tips which i don’t accept.
