w00t. I read that you can gain muscle on pretty much any well-designed weight training program as long as you eat enough, and I think that eating more will help my owie recovery anyway, so here it goes...my very first bulking cycle. Basically, I'm going to snarf down 2400-3000 calories of good food each day and switch my cardio to 1-2 sprint sessions a week. (High-intensity cardio has an anabolic effect.) After I put on a few pounds, I'll drop my caloric intake and take off the extra fat that will certainly have come along for the ride. I'm way past that beginners' window of awesomeness during which you can build muscle and lose fat at the same time, so I'll have to accept some squish along with the meat. I won't wind up with too much padding, though, and I do have the discipline to get rid of it soon after I'm done, so don't worry, Mom, umkay? =P
