I'm entering my third week of my offseason, but wanted to do this log right, starting off with a little background about me and then dive into the details of my offseason plan.
My name is Miguel De Dios, I'm 27 years old and I have been training for 9 years and been bodybuilding for about 3 years now. I just finished a year long contest prep three weeks ago in where I competed in three shows. Some highlights include winning my IPE pro card and placing second in my NGA pro debut.
Looking ahead and thinking big picture, I plan on taking 3-4 years off from competing and really focusing on building as much lean tissue as possible, while addressing many weak areas.
Contest prep stats:
-Stage weight: 151-152 lbs
-Weight post show/first day of offseason: 153 lbs
-Contest prep macros: 205 protein, 70g carbs, and 35g fat (not including refeeds/diet breaks)
-Current weight: 155 lbs
-Training split: Push, Legs, Pull, Upper, Lower
-Off days: Light cardio & stretching
-Current macros: 225g protein, 350g carbs, 40g fat
Going forward the plan will be to gain 2-3 lbs/month for 6 months to land somewhere around 165-171 lbs. From here, we'll maintain, possibly mini cut or push further depending on how I feel and look.
Anyways, I'm excited to hold myself accountable and really make this the most productive offseason to date.
