TEASER NON PUMP PICS!!!!
Im going to be cuttin grass tomorrow and hopefully get some good sun goin on. Then the GFs for the night, but legs and shoulders are friday and hopefully more pics then.
sorry its taking so long, dont mind the glare off my pal as$. No im not irish either, italian and german.
Head was down a bit to far, but back is def a strong point, look at the V....you know it!
I hate my side chest, one because i think my arms look small in it and 2 chest is a weak point for sure.

Your back is sick for sure brother. I wouldn't sweat the tan either bro. Just get some of the spray on sht. Lots of tanning places have the sunless mist tan now so you could just hit that up. It last like 2 weeks and cost about $20 so....

Also, you look a lot bigger than I pictured haha, diesel back for 185 brother, legit. You might be onto something with the core thickness too, cause I am a deadlifting junking, 475 x 10 , and honest your back looks more impressive because it gets so narrow @ the bottom, my obliques just jut out to the side <sigh> Anyways, props keep it up, Resident Evil 4TW

In regards to tanning. Im going to try and get some natural base, its a must form everyone i read and talk too.
I have some Jan Tana competition tan and posing oil already.
I am going to be cutting it close on the bulk then cut. I was just trying to figure it out at work today. I wanna hit it hard soon, i may start my Mdrol/Havoc bridge soon, 2 on mdrol at 20/20 then 4 or 5 on havoc at 30/40/40/40 or 50
I wanna gain but not get messy, thats why im keeping the mdrol short, and due to my past gyno. I have a thread in the steroid section on that situation and am set on it.
Ill begin to carb cycle prolly early august, prolly 5 low-no carbs, 1 medium, 1 high.
Then 1 month out i will be basing my diet around the palumbo type. Moderate fats, high protein, low carbs and of course as with any, hope to eat at least 9 times a day....but i doubt it cause i have work....
IF all else faisl for this comp. I WILL be cutting down hard as i never have, and many say after its a great time to grow. Plus i have to know what works for me when i do compete.
I will be competing, wether this show or another one next summer.....or whenver. And youll know about it!

Been doing work.
Been chosen for the MusclePharm Assault log, currently waiting PM to see what supps im allowed o use in conjunction with that...that will determine next cycle.
But, The famous Trauma1 has been a very loyal man and helped me out alot.
Due to my financial situation and wanting to try Havoc so bad cause i know its one of the highest placed PHs out, and have never got my hands on it....
--He personally is going to give me one bottle out of HIS OWN stash, so i will purchase one to extend the cycle too about 5-6 weeks. Dose dependant.
Trauma1 has been very helpful to me since i came to anabolicminds and ran across him the first time. Everytime i PMed him he answered with more info than i asked for and ideas also.His threads are fun and his posts are to the point when he is helping someone, so i will dedicate that log to him when i open it.
That being said, my nutra order has had to shrink some more and the scale is going to be gone. I will have to measure with spoons to get as accuate as possible but should not be any issues.
The Assault log will open when i get it.
The PH log will open with it or right after it.
Pics will be present in both.
I kind of stepped on my own toes as far as timing for this show goes but im sure ill get it figured out.

I been on track 3-4 days lifting 4th is auxillary day, little things i feel i need to hit again or leagging parts. 1 day off then at it again.
I been starting every day with some machine work, 2-3 sets, one warmup 15+ one moderate reps 8-10 one low 4-6 been going good. Feel more pumped during and after workouts like that, only doing it for chest, back and legs.
Nothing new to report, been cleaning up the diet some but will gain it back once i un my PHs

Hittin a back day in a few then tonight a party. I will be having 1 or 2 drinks, maybe some Pomegranate(sp?) and Vodka or Sprite and vodka, only 3-4oz worth of vodka all night though. I dont drink much, first time in 4-5months. I will be combating the muscle degenerating effects with a shake postWO, then a whole meal. PreParty, some creatine, Glycerol mono sterate to hold water in the muscles. Milk thistle, Xtend and a multi.
I will be using all the same tomorrow again for sure.
HAve agood weekend everyone.

I ended up with about 6oz of vodka over all. 1 1/2 cans caffeine free Sprite, and a Monster. It was mixed and i feel fine this morn. I knwo my limit and i hardly ever drink like i said. So im going to Pre-load some creatine and glycerol mono sterate, slamsome water. Eat about 2-3 times, then go to the gym round 4.
Lots of protein today and carbs. Pom juice.
I dont know if its a good idea to lift but i dont wanna get off schedule so i may not push to hard.
Its legs today.

Anywho. I feel great. Been eating clean. I noticed i kicked my metabolism by switching to alot of "snacks"/ meals...eating about 7 times a day but only gettin around 3000 cals.
Prep for Palumbo diet beigns next week. Loading up cals hard all week to account for a weekend away and prolly some drinking. I know i shouldnt but i never do! this month is my only exception.
I adjusted my side chest pose so it looks WAY better now. I get a little stomach vaccum going and go the angle down so my shoulders, tri and chest look thick.
Thanks for stoppin in everyone.
No new additions to supps yet, just the Assault tomorrow, at the end of that i forsee a PH/IGF/GHRP6 run coming.

Yea carbs are almost non-existant in it. Its based off of good fats around 100-150g a day pending bodyweight and about 1.2-1.5g protein per lb bodyweight.
Alot of people use it if youre on though...not sure how it would be for nattys, but since i am in between, im going to give it a shot.
If not try the Velocity diet, i hear thats tough but well worth it also.

well after i was leanign out for ahwhile...i decided to opt out....yes yes i know i should do it but the following is why im NOT...anbd i knwo excuses are for babies, but these are reason.
1. School is about to start and dieting and school dont mix. Especially being on campus fomr 8am-6pm 2 days a week and friday half that then working 30+ hours a week.
2. School the semester/year is HUGE for me, determines if i get into a 4 year school
3. I was NOT happy with my shape once i drop 8lbs or so. Chest stayed small, abs/back were good. Calves shrank to much.
4 I wanna be big. Id rather focus on hittin my goal of 220 fairly lean/clean then cut for the Mid-Illinois show next April.
So, i do apologize for taking up everyones time but thanks for the support.
DONT FOGET Jjohn is still doing his!!!! Support him!
Ill be around and doing the show me and Texas' set up for Feb 1/2nd

Makes sense MT...Gotta respect school being a priority. You got plenty of time to step on stage...Hell, I'm finally getting around to it and I'm 27...I'm a little behind...
What are you looking to study in school?
08-18-2008, 06:11 PM
Focus on Micro/Immunology
back up is Biology with a Clinical Lab Science degree.
I have other option in biology from toxicology to endocrinology so im not exaclty decided but i have about a year before i have to lock in.
Thanks for the support. Ill be gettin on stage in April though for sure. I PROMISE! I really dont wanna do all this work and then let it pass me by, im young and have time but i wanna get the feel for it now, hit up school, then maybe come back to BBing if i have the time, money and love for it still.

Good luck with the competition Twitch, I'll be following your progress. Mine is October 26, so it'll be fun to watch you get ready about the same time as myself.
Are you going to post up any pics to help us see your progress better?
