Random pre-bulk ramblings.
Happy Friday everyone! I’m doubly excited about this weekend because after all the planning and anticipation I’ll finally be starting my bulking diet on Sunday, and my bulking training will commence on Monday. I’ll be doing a complete set of measurements on Sunday or Monday morning, and I’m certain that they are going to be quite bad (for me). I’ve lost a lot of size over the past year, and my body fat has been creeping up since the JSF cruise.
This bulk means much more to me than just adding some muscle: it represents a return to training, diet and discipline that has (mostly) been lacking over the past year. Short of an injury, there will be no excuses and no deviation from my plan: 100% clean diet, no missed workouts, no alcohol, 8 hours of sleep every night, NO POPCORN and intense, brutal training sessions.
Because I’m starting this bulk with a higher body fat percentage than I’d like, I may wind up higher than my target of no more than 12% body fat by the time I’m finished. I can’t worry about that now. I’ll deal with any extra fat when I start cutting in January. Right now what I need to do is eat and train like a monster, and not worry about whether or not my abs are showing this winter.
Time to eat and get to work. Have a great day!
