    I"m kindof worried about zig zagging and if it would have any effect on my gains. We can use my bench for an example

    115/125/135/145/155/165
    135/145/155/165/175/185
    155/165/175/185/195/205

    This kindof is what my cycle looks like b/c all my weights are 20lbs apart for the maxes. Is that too much zig zagging or should i do something different?

    That's too much in my opinion. i would use smaller increments until you're sronger or use the larger increment for the last two workouts i.e.,

    130, 135, 140, 145, 155, 165
    150, 155, 160, 165, 175, 185
    170, 175, 180, 185, 195, 205

    I think the best way would be to use smaller increments though:

    140, 145, 150, 155, 160, 165
    165, 165, 170, 175, 180, 185
    185, 185, 190, 195, 200, 205

    ya i think this would be the best way

    140, 145, 150, 155, 160, 165
    165, 165, 170, 175, 180, 185
    185, 185, 190, 195, 200, 205

    is that better?

    but for my 15s i'm going to go with 10lbs each workout, what do you think about that?

    thx bro...i'll report back here every 2 weeks and let you guys know the results i'm having....hopefully i can restrict my calories and gain some muscle and lose some fat at the same time [​IMG]

    i weight around 195 at 15% bf or maybe less you can see the outline of my abs so it cant be that high

    Trying to take in 3000 calories a day, what do you think about that keystone?

    3000 calories is approximately 15X your bodyweight. I roughly calculate that to be right around maintenance. Sounds like you are looking to lean up a bit and running a HST cycle at or around maintenance should work great for you. Give it a try and see exactly how your body responds at that caloric level and tweak if need be. [​IMG] You could even throw a little tabata in there on your off days to help also.

    you need 12 cals per pound just sitting around..so take your weight in pounds multiply by 12 thats your basic cals but then you have to work out how many cals you will burn by exercise and daily jobs etc.. [​IMG]
