so i was a regular on gymnation but seems to have lost a lot of the usual follows, wondering if ppl migrated over to here now? anyways just starting up log here while i scout which one is more active. i find logging somehow keeps me more consistent especially with bit of feedback loop that you get to create with online training logs.
i used to just want to bulk and get big, then i really got in to hard core cycling (300-400km per week), then i got in to power lifting so bulked a bit again, then small injuries took way more time off than i should have and pretty much been inconsistent ever since. latest thing for me is mainly calisthenics but wanna regain some strength too. also looking to look like i lift.
have been lifting for some years now, was 47kg when i was 21 finished uni (28 now), saw a mate who took some mass gainers and went gym and buffed up. i decided to copy him , except i didn't go to gym for my first year and just took mass gainers. i shot up from 47kg to 65kg at like 30% body fat, one and only time in my life that i was so fat. eventually i started going gym and more or less have stayed in same weight range (60-65kg) ever since but plenty of recomping in that time. just putting some progress pics of my past year, glad i took regular pics even when i wasnt training cos now that i'm back to it, i didnt realise how far i've come from last year for example in terms of recomp.
b/w currently floats between 60-65kg.
bf% uncertain, feeling relatively close to the leanest i've been in years though.
supps stack :
mornings ; supermarket random branded 1 a day mens multi, vitamin c, iron tabs, l-arginine (just started on this stuff last week, absolutely love it lol, looking and feeling full/pumped through the day with this). recently added diablov1 single scoop to morning stack along side 1 scoop MT creactor. i know it's not the intended purpose but i added diablo for the nootropic side effects / morning dose of caffiene as i don't take coffee anymore due to staining my braces and this has filled that gap really well to keep me going through day at work.
nights ; zma, vit d3, fish oil
pre workout ; some unbranded pre workout supp from (dont think allowed to mention other shops names here?) @ 1 scoop + 1-2 tabs of larginine.
proteins : i take some n-mass when i haven't fulfilled my imaginary food quota for the day or if i trained extra in something like went long hike or mountain biking etc. just aquired some muscle tech 'gold whey' with dat dere whey peptides in it. shoutouts to the dude that gave me good deal on it today in store @ xplosive westgate.
the bank approves of how cheap the titan RTDs were going for.
