Thank you all for entering, we got into double figures!
Name: Gavin Rainey
Height: 6 foot
Goal: To bring myself down from 19 stone to around 14-15 stone and be a hell of a lot leaner.
Method:I will be training 4 times a week using a 5/3/1 program with high intensity or steady state cardio at the start of each session. I have also given up energy drinks and am following a strict diet within an intermittent fasting window of midday to 8pm.
Name: Tom powell
Height: 6feet 0 inches
Goal: By July 1st 2017 My aim is to be 170lbs. When I hit this point I will slowly bulk up with the aim of adding around 0.5lbs per week. This will mean that my weight by January 1st 2018 should be somewhere in the region of 180lbs-185lbs. By slowly bulking the aim is to add a good base of muscle whilst minimizing the fat gains. I would also like to become stronger and increase my 1rm on the big four excerciuses. I want the following. Squat=130kgs 1rm, Deadlift=135kg 1rm, Bench Press=75kgs 1rm and Overhead Press=60kgs 1rm.
Method: strict calorie control diet for the cutting and bulking phase. 500 calories defecit for the cut and 250 calorie surplus for the bulk. Four day split at the gym. Day 1 focusing on legs with the primary excercise being the Squat, Day 2 being Chest and Arms with the primary focus being Flat/Incline Bench Press. Day 3 is for back with the two primary excercises being Deadlift and Barbell Rows. Day 4 is an upper body day focusing on Overhead press and lots of accessory work for Biceps/triceps/deltoids. Each day will include low to medium intensity cardio using the treadmill on and incline or the Cross Trainer.
