Today I jogged to the gym ( about 3/4 mile), rode the bike , keeping my heart rate above 135bpm, for 25 minutes with a 5 minute cool down.
Then 3 sets of 20 weighted sit ups (5lbs, next week will be much more)
3 sets of 15
Planks 3 sets till fail.

I was given a few samples of CytoSport Monster Milk at the GNC a few weeks ago and finally got around to drinking it. My opinion of this protein is its one of the better tasting. Monster Milk mixes very easy just with my shaker, blender not needed. 50 grams of easy digestible protein, can’t beat it!
Yesterday I started taking Renewal spray, so far I have noticed a slight increase in energy and focus. Still to early to make any other judgment, as for the taste its kind of like watered down vodka.
My current weight was 168.5lbs.
Today we did the 5x5s again, gotta love them.
5 x 5 @ 230lbs then I did 135lbs till fail and I got 30! only hit 23 last week.
Incline Smith machine
5 x 5 @ 180lbs
Decline Dumb bell flies
3 sets of 10 @ 40lbs
3 sets of 10 @ 130lbs supersetting with push ups till fail.
5x5s are KILLER! try them out.
In order to gain solid muscle weight bodybuilders need more food, more often.
Don’t gorge yourself, but be prepared to eat and train hard. Protein from red meat, poultry and fish build muscle most effectively. Milk by the quarts, containers of cottage cheese and lots of eggs will add significantly to your muscle bulk and power building.
Whole grain breads, cereals and muffins work well for carbohydrate and fiber intake, while potatoes, rice and pasta are the most stable and popular sources of carbs. They burn clean, and with intense bodybuilding training they’re not likely to store as bodyfat. Bring on the vegetables of your choice, variety here is good. Complex carbs, fiber abundant, vitamins, minerals and exotic micro nutrients lurk in these foods.
Between meals shakes of protein, plus peanut butter and bananas are convenient and powerful ways to add to your positive calorie count.
