  • Primal Journal: What a Savage Eats! 6 months to gain a stone.

    My goal over the next 6months is to gain a stone of lean muscle sticking mostly to a primal diet.

    For the past 3 years I have been doing variations of mixed cardio and weight training sessions. I have bulked up before on a high carb/high protein diet with good results, but this also increased my bodyfat too. Should be interesting to see how much more difficult it is to increase muscle mass on a low carb, high fat, high protein diet.

    My current workout is as follows:
    Cycling to work 5x a week - just over 10 miles a day.
    Weight training 3x a week - Mon, Weds, Friday
    Bodyweight training/yoga - Sundays

    Due to the nature of my work I tend to walk up to 3-4 miles a day aswell.

    Strictly no extra cardio sessions, which will be hard as I do love a good 40-50mile bike ride, but cant afford to be burning off extra calories.

    Weight training is usually a 5x5 routine for 3 compound lifts. For example:
    Monday - Squatts/deadifts, hanging leg raises with pullups, overhead press.
    Wednesday - Reverse Lunge, one arm dumbell rows, bench press.
    Friday - Squats, wide grip pullups, shoulder press/lateral raise.

    From previous reading I am aware that I will have to consume an incredible amount of food to even come close to my intended goals. I aim to post my daily feeds up on here and we shal see how i get on! The workout is subject to change also, if i get bored, or find it not challenging enough.

    I am also not giving up Dairy products as I seem to be able to tolerate Lactose and they provide a valuable source of protein, fat and calories!
