Default George's Training Log

Editing this post - this is my journey in trying to find out what works best for me. It is a smattering of a bunch of different things. I will place my goals on this first post and edit as I obtain them.

Goals:

Rethinking these at this time.

Thumbs up

6 Weeks cycles are probably the best for cycling everything you want to do.

Aye, but Steven works on 4-6, Coach Sommer works on 8-12. I'm kinda splitting the difference.

Rest day. Spent the day rolling on floor with son and watching Rush Limbaugh tell it like it is.

Looks like you've got a pretty good training plan there. Its very similar to something I'm going to try once I'm done with my steady state cycle in 2 weeks. Only difference is I'm gunna add in some power cleans, squats, and deadlifts, cuz I miss em so much.

And good call on the 6 week cycle. 8 weeks takes too long.

I'll be watching with interest...

Yes your goals are almost exactly like mine. Right now I'm using Tabata intervals mainly for my HIIT training because well, I like them and they work! Right now the biggest issue I have is unfortunately having too MUCH muscle. Taking care of that with only doing 2 leg days, lots of water and fiber, and eating less than I normally would. Oolong has a great slimming effect as well, I drink it and green tea all day now.

And that would be where our goals differ. I'm actually trying to gain mass while working on bodyweight skills. I'm at a skinny lil 140 lbs right now, and ideally I'd like to be around 160-165 lbs.

Actually, no you don't! You can get a lot stronger without getting much bigger. For your height that weight is great. Actually for my height (5'11") 165 is ideal.
