Would anyone be so kind as to post anice 2 meal sample diet with this macronutrient breakdown?

225 pro/90 fat/225 carb

Also, for those who have underwent bulking and cutting cycles..

What's the reason behind "tapering" off your kcals slowly in the bulk-->cut transition? Why can't you just do it abruptly. Man of Steel guy went from 5k to 2.5k overnight...

Just started p90x yesterday after gradually allowing myself to gain about 40 pounds in the 2 years since I did p90x last. Can't believe I let myself get this out of shape.

Edit: Just got off the scale, weighed in at a pudgy 245 right now.

I used to weigh 275 lbs but am now down to 250 lbs.


I want to improve my cardio/stamina greatly. I have a resting heart rate of 90.

I can only jog for a minute before getting out of breath and having to stop.


How can I get to the point where I will be able to run a marathon? That is a long term goal I would like to shoot for.

Very inspired by what bmulls has accomplished in terms of his physical conditioning! I want to get to that level one day, but I get down on myself a lot and worry that I might not get to that point. Just feel like it is so far away to reach that.

Here's my cali split borrowed and compromised from Convict Conditioning and Pavel Tstatsouline's Naked Warrior:

Monday:
One-Arm Chin Up (Not a real one with the hand assist.. the bicep contraction is UNREAL) 3 * 5
Pull-Up 3 * AMRAP
Inverted Row/Front Lever try (Lol)
Hanging Leg Raise (SLOWWWWW) 3 * 8
Bridge 3 sets * 5 or so


Wednesday:
One-Arm Pushup 3 sets AMRAP
Elevated Pushup 3 sets AMRAP
Dips 3 * 15-20
Leg Lifts
Janda Sit-Ups
Planks
Ab Rollouts with Hands

Friday:
Hill Sprints
Pistol Squat (Assisted)
Bulgarian Split Squat
Glute Ham Raise with legs tucked below something sturdy

Hill Sprints for cardio. Jump rope Tabata style for cardio. Pickup basketball.

By no means big or strong but holy fukk feeling athletic and shredded. Cherrypicking dudes on Fastbreaks and lvery lean. Would get ass kicked by a squatter in like three seconds though hahah.

Later on in life will revert back to weights.

Then keep building it up until you can reach your goal.

Have you done before/after pictures or measurements?

It's hard to notice changes in yourself, but pictures of where you started help to better visualize it. Also, people will notice it better than you can.

Good luck. Just stick with it. I can't tell you how many times I've wanted to quit the program, but you just have to stick with the program if you truly want results.

You can't go wrong with eating fish as a meat.

If you do it too quick you'll lose a greater amount of muscle. When you cut you are going to lose some muscle no matter what, even pro bodybuilders on loads of roids lose some. But the slower and more methodical you taper the calories off the more muscle you can keep.

Lifting heavy weight too will burn calories like crazy and for much longer afterwards than cardio. Most of all, you need to simply do it. You need to do it for many months too. Carve out a place in your schedule that you know is always free. Use that time every day to either lift or do cardio.

How many days a week should I be doing cardio, and how long should each session be?

Take it one step at a time (no pun intended). If you can't take the intensity of jogging for a minute, then walk. Start somewhere, like 30 minutes every morning or as often as you can then work your way up from there. And don't worry, man, everybody has to start somewhere, and that basecamp differs from person to person. Go hard, buddy.

Personally I usually do about 45 minutes to an hour, 3 times a week (this is just for additional cardio like jogging) outside of the actual program I'm doing.
