Well, my plans are changing a bit. My goals were to get below 10% BF, get my bench to 250, squat to 450, and deadlift to 450 for the year. Anyone that knows anything about weightlifting knows that to add crazy strength, you really need to be throwing back the calories. You can do both at once (which is what I was doing) but it takes longer and I am impatient. So I have decided to actually do more of a bodybuilding style routine until I get to the lean level I am after (main goal) and then my metabolism will be reset, which means I can start throwing down the calories, and start making some big strength improvements.
With that being said, I am pretty close to my strength goals anyway (b=260, squat=400, deadlift=450) so I have a great base as it is. Lean is what I want first...so that's my focus first.
I know guys on another board that reset their metabolism and are eating crazy amounts!! It's taking them like 4500 calories a day just to even start gaining a pound. Metabolism is where it's at!
