An outline of my advanced hypertrophy training program
Are there good foods and bad foods? Eh…
Hormones, Macronutrients, Carb Targeting and CrossFit while dieting
Bill’s 2016 Bodybuilding Pre-Contest Plan
Well, one month on my own without the family at home (#bachelormonth!!) and then another 2.5 weeks on vacation have put me at highest bodyfat in quite some time.
I generally have a decent handle on nutrition most of the time, but the last 2 months, not so much and I’m paying the piper.
Right now I’m also coming off my longest time off in the gym in recent memory as well (about 1 month), and man did I feel that today during the workout!
Now, I was going to get aggressive from the start and begin tracking macronutrients (which are protein,carbohydrates and fat), but have decided to start a little easier and do what I call the “fist portion” diet. It’s an old diet from body for life. It’s certainly not the best, but it’s a good place to start.
It goes: 4-5 meals a day, each meal consisting of:
1 fist sized portion of protein
1 fist sized portion carbs
1-4 fist sized portions of vegetables (for this I’ll used water based, not starchy veges)
This plan also allows for 1 complete day off, but I won’t go too crazy on the day off.
Ok, here we go. I’ll also be recording my meals on myfitnesspal, but the portion sizes will be estimates because I’m not weighing and measuring my foods just yet.
In addition to the nutrition, I’ll be training at least 4x per week, shooting for 5x.
The first pictures are always the hardest to take for most people, but you have to see where you’re starting:
Beyond the WhiteBoard Fitness Levels
"It’s not how much you work out…it’s what you eat…really? October 2014 was my first figure competition and a very different nutritional journey. I met with Bill regularly during the pre-competition process. He said (I’m paraphrasing here, in a Moses at the burning...
Howdy everyone. After a long delay, the blog is back and I have quite a bit of catching to do. I might have said this in a few posts about various dinner recipes, but I REALLY mean it this time when I say Taco Pie one is probably my favorite Paleo meals to make for...
I first want to thank Bill & Joyce for putting holding Beat The Streets last Saturday. It was a great team effort - organizing the team WODs and bringing in Walter & Aaron from Hero. They taught us about sustainable food and how to break down a chicken and...
Muffins are perfect anytime of day, especially for breakfast on the go, a mid-morning snack or a before and/or after a CrossFit workout. Sweet potato muffins were my go-to snack and a quick bite before a workout for quite awhile and I even had a tradition with my...
Happy October! I don't know about all of you, but a ridiculous amount of people coming up on my Facebook news feed were posting pumpkin statuses and pictures left and right - pumpkin coffee, lattes, muffins, cookies, BEER....in the first week of September!! Too early...
