Heavy Hittin Bodybuilding Plan Week 2

Heavy Hittin Bodybuilding Plan!
Week 2
By Strength Runner founder and Trainer Dave Gluhareff or on Facebook under TrainWithDave –
Last week for (Week 1) I had you go “Heavy” with 5 circuits 5-10 reps but this week (Week 2) I want you to use “Medium” Weights, aim for 4 circuits of 10-15 reps! Your goal should be to be getting muscle pumping burn about 65-75% of the way through each set and barely be able to get a 15th rep because of muscle bursting pumps!  These “Medium” weights will trick the muscles from expecting Heavy weight like last week and you will crush this workout with some serious intensity!

Dave’s Heavy Hittin MASS GAINING Nutrition Plan: Daily Blueprint:
** I eat 4000-5000 calories per day before a big race adding fuel and gaining size, 3000-4000 calories per day on normal (non-race prep) days. I weigh 235lbs now.  The following Meals & Snacks are spaced out 2-3 hours all day from waking to bedtime
** To GAIN muscle MASS You need to at least be eating 10 calories per pound of desired body weight at the minimum so if you want to be 210lbs ripped, and that’s fair and logical for your bodytype and frame, then you need to eat at least 200x10 = 2100 calories daily spread out throughout all 7 meals/snacks below.
** If the 10 calories per pound of desired weight does not help you GAIN MASS only maintain size, take the next step and increase Lean Proteins and Complex Carbohydrates by 25% each day spread out throughout each day.  If this makes you feel too full or heavy right away cut back the increase in calories to suit your tummy and digestive system.  
** Make sure that for minimum protein intake you are eating at least 1 gram of protein per pound of a healthy bodyweight so if you are 210lbs that’s 210 grams of protein spread throughout 7 meals – 210 divided by 7 = 30 grams of protein per meal/snack. 
** Get on track with my Heavy Hittin MASS GAINING meal & snack plan to build your well-earned muscles!
