My split this week was:
- Saturday – Off (felt sick)
- Sunday – Full Body
- Monday – Cardio
- Tuesday – Lower Body
- Wednesday – Cardio
- Thursday – Upper Body
- Friday – Cardio
Felt sick on Saturday, which is really strange for me. I had some weird anxiety going on, light headedness and a weakness feeling. Took the day off and ate a surplus of calories and hit the gym hard Sunday. Felt amazing on Sunday. Everything felt light and it was a really good workout. I was very sore for 2-3 days after however, so I did legs only on Tuesday. On Thursday hit another Upper Body workout, which wasn’t the best in the world and I lost a few reps on Bench. Chinups were on par though. I also reduced the number of exercises on Thursday, but was still very sore on Friday. I plan to start my workouts on Saturday this week and take Sunday off.
I’m thinking about doing the Velocity Diet (at least my modification of it) for the next month. I plan to stick to the workouts which is 3 full body workouts with one body weight challenge day. Every day hit at least an hour of walking which is really easy for me. Saturday will be a lifting day and most likely a cheat day where my calories go up from whatever I want. Sunday will be the bodyweight challenge and Tuesday and Thursday will be the other lifting days. Monday, Wednesday and Friday will be rest days of cardio/walking only. I should mention though that my workouts will be different than the ones recommended. Basically I’m setting up my version of the V diet. I’ll probably write a more detailed plan next week.
I’m sure as hell not doing the expensive supplement plan they recommend for this. I do plan on sticking pretty close to the calories though. The calories are 1400 on rest days and 1800 on workout days. I’ll throw in one cheat day, which I guesstimate will land about 3000 calories. This will throw my average for the week at about 1800 calories.
This week I averaged roughly 2150 calories. The V diet calls for a lot of protein and minimal carbs and fat. Not the worst thing in the world, since I do like protein. As long as I get in enough protein though and hit the calories then I dont really care that much. Breakfast and lunch will be high in food volume, but low in calories and dinner will be the biggest meal of the day.
Not sure why, but I just felt really motivated to try this out as least as closely as I can. Maybe just a need for change or more organization in my diet. I think I will like this setup. Also really looking forward to the bodyweight challenge. I actually really enjoy those type of workouts.
My roommate who definitely has some weight to lose as finally asked me to help him drop fat. Its about time haha. He doesnt need to try anything fancy and I put him on a 3 day split with walking on at least 4 days of the week. Diet is high-ish in protein (120 grams) with 40-60 grams of fat and 250 grams of carbs. He likes carbs and carbs are cheap, so I feel he will like this setup. A lot is just about educating him on making better overall choices with food and getting rid of processed food.
