Excerpt: Hi, everyone! I am new to EF but have been following some posts for about a month or so. This will be the first post for my log journal, and I'm not really sure how to start this off because I have quite a few things to share, some background to give, etc. But, with all that aside, I am very excited to get started and get some feedback. My goal is to gain 5-10lbs of lean muscle mass on my upper body. I know that nutrition is a HUGE part of the gaining process, but I am currently in

    Looks like you're in pretty good shape, girlie!!! Love the avi!

    I still think you're working your legs too hard. Don't work them if they're still sore....you may already know that, but just in case. The only way to know if one thing works better for you is to try it. After you're done with the Dual Factor - maybe try training one muscle group a week and see which way you get a better result. (just can't get passed training legs 3x a week. that's just not good.)

    So anyway, what's your age? We have the rest of the stats except that one. Age effects metabolism too.

    Re: IcePrincess Journal

    Good morning, everyone!

    Scorpiogirl, I am 26 years old (in four days!) Thank you so much for all of your help... I promise I'm not working my legs again when I'm sore, and you're right: after I've evaluated the whole 5x5 program, I'll figure out what to do next.

    I have all of my stuff ready to post, but I have 3 questions first.

    1. Is it is best to have the majority of calories earlier in the day, even while bulking, or is it best to spread them evenly throughout the day?

    2. Same question but with carbs...Is it best to have majority of carbs in the morning, even while bulking or is it better to spread them out throughout the day?

    3. When bulking, how many calories should I be taking in and should it be on the 40/30/30 ratio? I know that it is based on individal body types but what is the "general" rule?

    Ok here it goes...DAY 2

    November 21
    7:30AM
    ½ cup Apple Juice
    3 Egg Whites
    1 Whole Egg
    ½ cup Oatmeal with 1 packet of Splenda
    20 Grapes
    ½ liter of Green Tea

    11:00 PM
    Protein Shake mixed with water
    2.3 oz Heart to Heart Cereal
    ½ liter of Green Tea

    1:30 PM - GYM TIME!!
    Squats: 5x5 (100 lbs)
    Bench: 5x5 (50, 55, 65, 70, 80 lbs)
    Bent Row: 5x5 (50, 55, 65, 70, 80 lbs)

    2:50 PM
    Protein Shake with 6 oz of Skim Milk

    4:30 PM
    1 Grilled Chicken Breast
    ½ cup of Noodles (spiral)
    1/8 cup Onions
    ¼ cup Broccoli (raw)

    8:00 PM
    3 oz White Turkey
    1/8 cup Onions
    ¼ cup Broccoli
    ½ cup Navy Beans

    * 1+ Gallon of Water throughout the day!

    TOTAL Calories = 1311
    Protein 133 g (40%)
    Carbs 158 g (48%)
    Fat 19g (13%)


    I'm excited...next week is week 4 of the 5x5 program, where we set records on all of our weights! My husband and I are both feeling very strong this week, so next week should be GREAT!

    Happy Birthday in advance, Sag Girl!

    1. Is it is best to have the majority of calories earlier in the day, even while bulking, or is it best to spread them evenly throughout the day?
    Spread your calories out evenly during the day.

    2. Same question but with carbs...Is it best to have majority of carbs in the morning, even while bulking or is it better to spread them out throughout the day?
    Try to keep your carbs more toward the beginning of the day or immediately after a workout.

    3. When bulking, how many calories should I be taking in and should it be on the 40/30/30 ratio? I know that it is based on individal body types but what is the "general" rule?
    I'm thinkin' you should probably start somewhere between 1500-1600 calories a day with your stats, so you're in the right range already. If you feel you need a little more, up it 500 calories at a time until you reach a point where you're gaining, but not putting on too much fat.

    40/30/30 is also a good starting point.

    As far as body type, you and Bunny are REALLY similar. She is taller than you, but structurally (sp), you could almost be twins!!! I'm not sure that what works best for one person would work best for another, but it's always interesting to talk to someone who has a similar body type and compare a little bit as far as gaining and losing.

    You're on the right track!!!! Keep up the good work!

    Hey girl I haven't officially said hello yet! What branch are you in? I'm ex-Air Force.

    "Height: 5'2"
    Weight: 119 lbs
    Body Fat: Hard to get in the middle of a desert.
    Measurements: Looking for someone with a flexi-tape"

    Did you find a flexi-tape yet?? I'm sure I can mail you one or there is a good site to buy electronic body fat calipers and a measuring tape comes with it:

    http://store.bodybuildingfactory.com...OVMTC=standard

    That's the website. I have those and I think a few other girls on here may also.
    Good luck on the muscle gain! It will definitely be an adjustment. Just remember you are probably going to gain some fat with lean body mass gain but you can minimalize that with ie. HIIT training and a clean diet of course. So don't freak out

    Re: IcePrincess Journal

    HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE!! Hope everyone eats LOTS of YUMMY food!

    Scorpiogirl - that 2 min drill is AWESOME and it is fun to see how many you can do consecutively!!

    Treilin - No, I have not found any flexitape yet. The source I was going to get it from was on R&R so...I have been checking into ordering some myotape as well as some calipers online - I am thinking that they will be a HUGE benefit to me!! Thanks SOOO much for offering to ship them to me, that is so sweet of you!! YOU ROCK :-) Like you said, this muscle gain has been a HUGE change for me...I feel like I am getting a large as a cow - though I know it is just my head. I have to keep convincing myself that I WILL be able to lean back out once I met my gains!! :-) I am just so grateful for all of the many supportive women on here and seeing that they are feeling the SAME way I am.

    Ok...here is dinner - I improved my calories a little but still not getting as many as I should!

    8:00 PM
    1 cup of tuna in water
    1 slice of swiss cheese
    1/8 cup onions
    ¼ cup potato salad
    2 tsp sour cream
    ¼ cup salsa
    ¼ cup broccoli

    Total Calories = 1255
    Protein 122g (40%)
    Carbs 145 g (45%)
    Fat 23g (16%)


    I am thinking that I need to reduce my carbs a little as well as increase my fat...all while adding calories!! :-)
