Post-bulk plans.

2009

My body is telling me that it’s time for a break. After 16 weeks of non-stop, extremely intense and brutal workouts I am really starting to feel the cumulative effects. I’m dealing with quite a few nagging aches and pains that, while not serious, are not exactly pleasant, either. A week completely off from training will do wonders for me. Here’s the plan…

Next week is the final week of my bulk (my bulk ends on Sunday, January 25th). The week after my bulk (January 26 – February 1) I will lift, but I’m going to do fairly low volume workouts, and back off on the intensity levels quite a bit. I will continue to eat my bulking diet during this “transition” week. On Monday, February 2, 2009 I will be taking a week off from pretty much everything: I’m taking a week of vacation from work and a week off from updating this site. I also won’t be doing any weight training during this week. I will resume training and updates to the site on Monday, February 9, 2009.

After I return from my vacation I will enjoy a somewhat relaxed diet for the remainder of February and will be doing comparatively light workouts. By “somewhat relaxed” diet, I mean that I’ll allow myself one cheat meal per week, and some popcorn on the weekends. I will continue to abstain from alcohol. I am going to start my cut on Monday, March 2, 2009. While I’m cutting I will not be having any cheat meals, and there will be no alcohol. Once again I’ll be working with my good friend (and now JSF sponsor!) Mastover, and this is something I’m very excited about. I will approach this cut with the same attitude that I had for my current bulk: 100% consistency, no excuses and unwavering dedication. I will execute Mastover’s plan like a machine; by this summer my hard work will pay off, and I’ll get to hit the beaches with the best physique of my life.

I’ve got a lot of work to do today, so I’d better wrap this up and get back to it. Thanks for stopping by – happy Friday!
