3 sets x 12 reps x 170 lbs (77kg)

I guess I`ll beat my goal of 220lbs for reps =)

Hi guys,
I`ve been neglecting my virtual log, but rest assured I`m still lifting. Or, well, trying to lift!
Finished my cutting diet, almost total failure! Lost a lot of lean mass, but at least I learned a lot in the proccess.

I will try to update more!

About the deadlifts, haven`t improved since my last update, cutting diets suck and make you weak!
Just started a bulk again, now the good times will begin =)

Looking forward to seeing you get back into it again. Sorry I'm not sure if I've ever posted in here although I do pop in from time to time and check what you are up to!

Take care and have fun with the bulk, always fun MF.

Approximately how many calories are you planning to eat per day? I always have a hard time bulking without it turning to fat.

I had the same problem last year. Bulked hard = gained fat.
After this bulk, I did a cutting diet and shed 8kg (17lbs ). The cutting was easy for me, I`m a `skinny` type of guy like you.

Now I`m planning my diet and training with a vegan bodybuilder which is a friend of mine here in Brazil.
The first thing I did was to cut processed processed carbs. That means no sugar, no flour, no bread, no pasta . . .
My carb sources are brown rice, sweet potatoes, regular potatoes, oats and fruits.

Right after I decided to stop cutting, I slowly switched to a higher calorie diet, that`s one mistake I made in my past bulk, I calculated that I should consume 2600 calories and started eating that amount overnight. This time I`m taking my time, in the end of my cutting diet I was consuming 1600 calories a day, I switched to 1800 calories and in the subsequent week to 2000 calories. Doing that my goal is to gain max. 0.5kg (1 lbs) every 10 days.
So i kept weighting myself (first thing in the morning, fasted, after i pee) until my weight seemed to go up. I got to 2200 calories. After 10 days eating 2200 calories I gained exactly 0.5kg(1lbs).

So, thats where I am at right now, it`s not even been a month since I went back to bulking, almost 1kg (2.2lb) up. And that will be my strategy, go up slowly and without consuming anything processed.

My training is a simple ABCD split, 4 days a week (5 if I feel like going an extra day). And sometimes if I feel like it I do some intermitent running (run 1min/walk 2 min/run 1min/walk 2min) for 15 minutes top.
The training strategy is to keep the weight training constant and as I consume more calories I will do more activities to burn some extra calories and speed up my metabolism ( some short HIIT activities, never exceeding 15 minutes)

Was that clear? If you want I could post my current diet. Seems to be working now that I have some help from a friend =)

I'm not posting a lot, but I'm consistent with my training and diet.
Just deadlifted 253lbs (115kg) with TERRIBLE form this morning.
First time lifting heavy, next time I will improve my form :D
