Day 3 and what an exhausting day it has been. I struggled through a back workout. No real update on Bulk-Up since it's only Day 3.
If you haven't visited Andro Factory's site lately head there right now! Go now!

I hope everyone had a great weekend. This past weekend was the NPC Junior USA's and if I didn't have enough motivation to claim a Top 5 performance now I definitely do. My goal for 2013 is to claim a Top 5, so I can compete in certain national shows and one being the Junior USA's. The guys there definitely looked great.
So now onto my update...I was outside working all weekend in the rain, so I knew I had to cheat slightly from my diet to take it slightly higher calories. My fear was that enough the BULK-UP is helping me, I would lose weight like I normally do. I took in around 4,000 calories, but definitely higher than normal sodium levels. As you can see I actually was able to put on weight. BULK-UP is really helping me out. I look fuller and slightly bloated from the sodium, but with rounded, fuller muscles. I will continue to track my weight to see if it goes down once the sodium is expelled. Water intake is around 1-1.5 gallons/day.
Back to training and normal precise diet this week.

You ever have one of those days when everything just flies by and you don't know where time went? Well that is my day so far. I feel like I haven't gotten anything done, but a ton has gotten completed, work wise at least.
So you should have noticed that my weight dropped. Yes the gain was all water weight. Solid gains don't come that easy when you are dieting for a show. I have currently 4 meals down so far today with 3 more to go. Shoulders, upper chest (my overall weakness) and abs will be worked tonight at 8:00 p.m. I really hate the night workouts, but if I'm focused then it'll be go time.
No news on BULK-UP since it's only been 1 week. Same energy as a week ago.
GO HARD OR GO HOME!!!

Happy Friday to all! Even though it's Memorial Day Weekend it really doesn't seem crazy to me even though I live right by the Jersey Shore. I hope everyone has a great weekend. Cook up some chicken on the grill and have it with grilled sweet potatoes and asparagus. Now that's a healthy meal.
So I just finished my first week of BULK-UP @ 8 caps/day. My weight has increase 1-2 lbs. depending on the time of day. I did notice a strength increase yesterday. Incline DB press has always been a weak point until yesterday. 2 weeks ago I got up to 75's for 8 (full reps no spot) and yesterday I got 90's for 6. Hmmm...BULK-UP is starting to work. The rest of the workout was good as well.
I will be doubling up my workouts this weekend, so 7 meals and 2 workouts each day. Are you ready to join me?
Have a great weekend all!!!

Yeah I'm rdy for this! Jersey is a small state and of course you live on the infamous Jersey Shore! I live 10 min past lambertville N.J. in P.a. you by pt. Pleasant/ Seaside?
05-25-2013, 03:15 PM
PA will always have a share in my heart. Went to college in PA but Jersey born and raised. I live 30 min from Belmar. My contest prep coach lives by Seaside.
BULK-UP is giving me so much strength I need a massage to get out the knots from the new weights I'm lifting. I'll take it if it means I'm getting bigger.
Get BULK-UP to witness new found strength.
10 weeks till my next competition!

I'm still mapping it up. I have used revolution pct before but it depends on how the cycle turns out.

Weight: 180-181 lb.
I hope everyone had a great Memorial Day Weekend. Even though I live by the Jersey Shore my focus was on getting to the gym, cooking my food for the week and relaxing. A competitor shouldn't spend their time partying. If so, then the lack of dedication will shine through at the end.
I couldn't be any happier about BULK-UP. I have been sticking to the same exact diet as prescribed by my coach and I have gained 3-4 lb. and my body fat % has gone down. On top of that strength is through the roof. 1-arm DB bent over rows for 6 reps each arm @ 120 lb. BULK-UP really has helped me increase my strength.
I am currently 9.5 weeks out from the NPC Tri-State Championships and I am gearing up for a great performance. My calories are still at 3,500 calories and no cardio yet. You know the cardio will come in soon, probably at 8 weeks out.

Thanks man. My main goal is next year to be at 186-190 at 4% body fat. This is just a stepping stone towards then. I was 170 at 4% at my last show.

So here I am sitting at my desk contemplating if I should go to the gym tonight for my 2nd workout of the day. One thought says yes while the other says no. With BULK-UP inside me I can't let Andro Factory and all my fans down. I am currently finishing up my 3rd week of BULK-UP and I have gained 4-5 lbs. eating the same amount of calories. Oh and I almost forgot to mention that my body fat % has dropped from 7.7% to 6.1%. That is without any cardio. I don't feel any changes mentally, but something is definitely working. I am currently 8.5 weeks out from my next comp and cardio will begin in about 2 weeks. I just listen to my coach and follow his commands.
Go Hard or Go Home!!!
Off to the gym I go.........

Haha nice post, I've had that returning to the gym urge so many times at college. Always a real mindgame

What can I say about BULK-UP. My weight hit 183 yesterday. That means a 6 lb. gain in only 3 weeks. This product is incredible. I don't feel any different, but the weight and strength is increasing. I have tried products from other companies and I always felt lethargic, but so far no negative effects for BULK-UP. I spoke to my coach earlier this week and the leaning out part will be starting in 2 weeks, but BULK-UP will help to keep me full and large throughout the rest of the 8 week period of BULK-UP. Even though it's raining in the Northeast I will still be training, eating, cooking and food shopping this weekend. You should be too!!!

Awesome physique! Keep up the training!
Freedom means nothing here.

Thanks guys. Look out for my best post later this week. Here's a teaser I'm 8 weeks out and my diet was just changed by my coach...

So what a week it has been. I am still on BULK-UP don't worry. I know you're looking at my weight and going what the hell is he doing. As you can see I have leaned out from my last picture a week ago. You may be asking what happened. Well I will tell you.
I spoke to my coach and it was time to knock out some body fat, but maintain my muscle and strength. That is why I am opting to continue to run BULK-UP. The great thing is that I will be able to compare contests pic from my last contest to see how much muscle size I did put on. I literally lost 4 lb in 4 days from the switch of diets. I am eating 48.62% protein, 22.89% carbs and 28.49% fats. My coach will reevaluate me next Tuesday to see where I stand. I am currently 7 weeks and 1 day away from my next show. This diet is easier to prepare, but harder to focus throughout the day. I guess I will take the good with the bad. I also added in 6 days of 30 min. steady state cardio. I was originally doing no cardio. The stepmill is my best friend now.

Thanks man. Dieting for a comp is total head games. I only know what my diet will be until Tuesday then I will send my coach my pics. The rest is up to him.

It's time to take off the fat! 6 weeks till show time and now the fat has to come off. I can honestly say that I feel like a totally different person once my coach changed my diet. Calories down, carbs down, intensity up. With Bulk-Up still going at 9 caps a day I can still keep the strength and muscle size. Those are the reasons why I still look big and full even though the weight is literally falling off.
