OK so week 2 is done and as previously stated Layne Norton has now taken over my training and nutrition last week. Really liking the new routine which is focused on trying to bring up my chest and arms over the coming months. Diet has been kept the same as I had it set for the first week which is Protein 288, Carbs 308, and Fat 49 I think Layne just wants to see how my body responds to the macro’s its on before making any kind of changes up or down. So my previous weight was 203.4 lbs and this week I am 204 lbs so a gain of .6 for the week. I track my progress from Saturday to Saturday but report to Layne on Mondays so will see if anything changes for the coming week.
Normally when I am in a muscle building phase I track all my macro’s except for what I eat for supper so I can eat with the family but Layne wants me to track everything so there is a slight difference in what I estimated I was eating versus what I actually at this week. I had estimated I was eating 2900 calories but this week it was actually 2825 calories so seeing an increase in weight at that level shows my metabolism is still low after the diet. My estimated maintenance calories for 204 lbs and 10% BF is approximately 3362 calories.
My shoulder continues to improve and I would says its at 90% at this point. Today’s workout is Shoulders and Arms so another good test! I plan on posting up the first progress pictures in another 2 weeks.
