  1. Yeah Madds you're learning that I'm pretty much the smartest person in the world, lol!

    Seriously though, I've gone through a lot of what you're going through in this prep. Just trying to offer my advice & personal experience.

    Good to see you're still progressing well. That's a super low amount of cals, but if it aint broke dont fix it! just be careful post contest with your food in take, after going that low you'll be primed for adding fat (along with muscle!)

    Great dedication bro! Love it.
    ill be splitting it up 30 min stepper break drink some water 5 minute break... 30 minutes again... stop eat my first meal for the day. after I finish wait 15 minutes lay in the tanning bed relax for 15 minutes... after that ill mix up my.protein shake... start my weight lifting, my weight lifting will be split up through out the day, so for example chest morning... triceps evening after cardio again...
    after I finish my workout ill go home eat most of my meals the rest of the day. then stop hour ahead of cardio time and start again...

    the manager at my gym said "i think your here more than me now..." lol....
    def made me feel likei dont have a life.... lol honestly I really dont right now.... even my gf is calling me her old man, cause im so grumpy...

    today is rest day... I need it...

    yesterday I did another hour of cardio after two hrs of yard work, and then worked outonsome leg curls.... nothing to crazy... im still trying to fight this cold...

    still having a hard time sleeping....sigh...
    I had to chug some juice last night with piracetam in it... knocked me out!

    I think the ephedrine is keeping me up....

  9. one thing thats really cool about this dieting and getting ready for a comp, is the dedication is through the roof and how I have found my passion. I have dreamed about doing bodybuilding.... ever since high school... I had crohnes disease from freshman year of high school, now for the past two years its been under remission... my crohnes disease would kill my muscle gaines I would have a flare up and would be skinny at 140 lbs...

    I am so thankful for where im at now... and its only the beginning my friends...
    I am a christian and I thank God for his healing hand...

    But it just all shows for a healthy lifestyle we need to focus on four things
    physical health, mental health, spiritual health, and nutritional health.

    also to keep my dedication I canceled my cable for my house. so all I have is music and reading...

    also I have internet and I watch you tube motivational bodybuilding videos, during this time I noticed it helps to get me back on track and help me realize why im doing this...

    Prayer and visualization is whats helping me... this is the hardest I have ever trained... and I really wanna step off the treadmill and go to a buffet but... I just keep picturing #1 in my head... Im learning so much through this and even about my body... I think anyone should do this...

    Well you've made me want to step up and compete, it sounds like a really good experience. I've been thinking about it for awhile and your progression is pretty inspiring, you've given me some insight that has made me decisive about something I've gone back and fourth on. Good work and thanks.

    Meals going good. Im making some awsome progress got a bodybuilders perspective and asked one of the pro guys that i know at my gym.. I took off my shirt and he helped me with my poses, and he said my legs are weak something ill need to work on after contest but my abs are my strongest suit and should show them off every chance i get... also my arms are another strong point... he told me to focus on my obliques more this week so my abs will really get to pop... He told me i have a really good chance up there on stage... made me smile big time hearing that from him....

  13. Been feeling exhausted today... Went and speed walked around the boat. 1 min of jumpin jacks, 1 min of diamond push ups, 1 min of pushups incline, 1 min of burpees, 1 min of crunches... walked for 45 min. practiced posing for 15 minutes...
    Got all of my supplements in but water i couldnt do it today... i just have no passion today... my focus is not there at all today... I dont know what happened... tomorrow is a new day though... We all have our hickups...

    thanx hts... im worn out thats for sure... whats weird is im already planning my next lol.... psycho....

  16. Ya getting discouraged comes in waves, and comes and goes like the tide. Sometimes I'm super motivated and excited about the gym, and other times I'm just not feeling it - usually cause I'm tired or hurting. That's why I like being on cycle, I'm overly pumped all the time.

  17. Ya I've started the first steps of planning competition. I can't find a good local event to register for, just ones that have passed - is there a good resource for that? Anyways I've been trying to talk to the one friend I have that's pro and it's just been an argument on lightweight vs heavyweight, and going on trt. I'm like stop trying to make me do that, I'll do it if and when I'm ready, but I'm not yet.

  18. It's ok. Like you said tomorrow is a new day. Happens to everyone.

    Best advice is don't shoot for a class, it's your first show so you have zero idea how you'll react. Pick a date 12-20weeka pre contest and start dieting. Weights only a number.

    Guy I know placed extremely high at north America's and was a lightweight and looks bigger than guys I've seen 20lbs heavier. All presentation ;-)

  20. thanx everyone... smash where you live? theres a couple near me...

  21. Ya you're right I don't, I just feel having goals will be good for me. Its like right now I'm not really working torwards anything and this will give me more motivation and help me feel more fufilled about what I'm doing. Not to say I'm not motivated or happy where I'm at, I'm just feeling like I'm wandering around aimlessly if that makes any sense. I know weights just a number, and I've heard I "look like I put on some size" even though I'm lighter - should I even be checking my weight really? Could I do this all from appearance in the mirror?

    I'm in southern California, and I'm willing to drive to a different county for this.
