Casey Training log – November

Hypertrophy: the enlargement of an organ or tissue from the increase in size of its cells.

 

This marks the second phase of my hypertrophy program. Four weeks ago my bodyweight was sitting around 235-238lbs. After four weeks, and a big increase in calories per day, I’m sitting around 244-247lbs. The ultimate goal is over 250lbs, so I still have plenty of work to do. And those last few pounds will be more difficult than that first big jump. Why am I doing this? I need a “training cushion” because going into powerlifting meets I tend to lose weight for a number of reasons that I won’t discuss here. How am I doing this? Well, it looks something like this…
