Okay right now I weigh in about 164lbs and my parents think I am too thin, well I was thinking about starting to bulk up to 185-200lbs and have good muscle so I am strong etc, I am currently training martial arts but really here I am talking more conditioning. Right now I have more fat than what I would like so heres what I am currently doing and such.
What I will soon have available to train:
Sandbag training(in incs of 1, 2, 5, 10, 20)
My own body and determination..
For the rest of the school year the max daily I can put into workout is 2 hours and on the weekends more. Over the summer I plan to work like 6 hours a day, yeah I will give up so much for so little.
hmm whats your opinion, should I stick to 200 push ups a day(to build better muscle and upper body for when I start dead lifting etc) or go upwards to 500-1k through out the day, like 100 an hour or something like that? Now I know thats sorta bad as you keep ripping your muscle which you want to do, but most likely not in that access? So how many do you think I should do a day than like perhaps skip a day from doing upper so that way my muscles can re-gen and that day I rest and do core such as plank etc.
So perhaps like this? (of course my diet etc)
Monday X push ups
Tuesday core work, plank, wall squats, Israeli sit ups
Wednesday X push ups
Thursday some core, leg work(majority)
Friday X push ups
Saturday core work, plank, wall squats, Israeli sit ups
Sunday X push ups
This will help me build up my upper body and core. Basically what I am trying to do is get in better shape so that when I have my TRX, and all my sand and such I am in shape and able to efficiently do it. Why eat 3.2k-4k calories a day when I do my heavy workout, just to have half of that go to waste! So what do you think of this idea to do for a few short weeks?
explanaton of situation/todays diet
Now my parents are thinking I am getting too, thin. Personally I would appreciate it if at some point that me you/my dad can have a chat about all of this as he understands it, like where me and you are on the mic and I just have the output be the speakers so he can hear you etc. Okay really right now I am cutting weight because I want to in better shape, but not cut too much so when it comes time to put on the weight I am able to do it so I do not waste the calories and all that stuff, basically makes sense. Or do you think I really shouldn't cut and just start doing heavy work out and bulking up? But I believe that can be an issue as I have some not needed fat and I think I would need more muscle? So should I bulk or not? Now since I am currently cutting this is what I ate today...
2x Fresh Bananas
1 cup of 2% low fat cottage cheese(90 calories and 20 from fat)
1x Deli sandwich (Swiss cheese, lean turkey, lettuce, whole grain bread)
1x Peanut butter protein bar( http://www.amazon.com/South-Beach-Li.../dp/B001G7RBMG
) has like 140 calories and like 8% of daily protein
1x Protein bar(peanut)
Pasta noodles, with lean hamburger meat, cheese(not sure which kind) baked, not sure what else was in it, maybe sumore cheese?
A glass of Milk / Water
Okay really what should I start eating, perhaps a diet like this http://www.ext.colostate.edu/PUBS/foodnut/09362.html
, but I do in the end want to put on weight, just not sure how I should come across doing it? Thanks for the help man, want to get this sorted.
Oh and I also did this for my work out, took it easy as my lower body workout yesterday was rough so I had sore legs(still do)
x200 Push ups
x150 Squats with res
x100 sit ups
5 minutes of plank & wall squats
Not very much but since I dont have gear yet and I am trying to explain this to my parents I need to take it slow.
Really I also know about creatine but heres a quick re-cap, and again I am very serious about changing my life style, as Ive been doing hapkido, wrestling etc for years and I used to start hard training in spring and summer for 1-2 good worth wile fights, cut weight then stay okay health but not very strong in the winter, keep in mind I train my technique all year just not my body soo much.
Current Weight 164 range, with not enough muscle
Goal 185-200lbs with a good strong body, flexible etc
I can train like 2 hours or so on a school day @ home and like 6 over the summer.
I hope to achieve this by the end of the summer? Wish me luck and reply if you can help!
