    MentalTwitchs gettin down to business


    I been at it for awhile now. I feel like i have the portions, not the size, the determination, and such.
    Goal- OCT. 25th Mid-Ill Continental
    THEN possibly cruise into the NOV. 1st Illinois- Ironman

    I understand these are 2 highly honorable shows and very very competative. Im game though.

    Currently, just eating. Im on many supplements and no gear. I use Pslin every other day to avoid stomach issues, Super Enzymes by NOW, Centrum daily, Fish Oil, Bcomplex, Storm by Universal Nutrition, Glycerol Mono Sterate(bulk) and other little odds and ends.

    I am planning a cycle soon after my Accutane run.

    Im rockin' a Trey Brewer-esque off season, not as bad though, see ab outline still.

    Im at 185~ want to hit 215~ and then cut, or just gain/maintain what muscle i gain.

    No target stage weight, just come in shredded.

    It will not be an extensive log, more 3-4 times a week. How i feel, gains, and hoping to get pics every 3-4 weeks.

    Ill try to get some start pics up soon. I been tryin to catch some sun but it only comes out when i work...chicago weather...blah.

    Need to bring up/out-Shoulders, calves, forearms(maybe) chest.

    Good points as of now- Back, (i think its great haha), bis, quads, and hams(but we'll ahev to see come cut time, right now hams looks wide and see them some.

    I will save BF% guesses for after i post pics.

    Peace.

    maybe....just keep it in your mind thats what i did. I eventually turned fomr not about weight but about sculpting and shaping.

    On the opposite note...i pulled(Deadlifted) 405 for 2 tonight. It felt great. after 4 warm up sets.

    hope to get pics up soon.

    Thats been my hardest mental change. Going from lifting with guys and lifting heavy to training with a pro trainer and sculpting and buliding muscle. I feel like an azz occasionaly when people are watching me and i'm doing lighter weights at higher sets with plyometrics thrown in. But damn has the muscle packed on and the cuts came out...

    exactly. On some lifts when you drop the weight, negative reps or even just really focus on contraction makes it somuch more noticeable and you feel it much more.

    I might throw in some balance ball(i guess ill call it) work once i start to cut.

    ha. nothing.
    GHRP6 starts in a day or 2 at 5on2 off. 300mcgs
    I havent been able to get anythign else as far as AAS. I been trying. I had 1 person tell me they could, and then clearly lied. Another just doesnt want to but says he will...
    I have another way i may expend soon.

    Its going to suck hardcore going in fairly clean. But im guessin im only going in at lightweight once i cut so i dont think itll matter to much.

    Live and learn.
    Ill prolly do the Mid-Illinois show next year in April no matter what.

    EDIT: Id also like to make it clear, if the budget doesnt allow for it and other factors come into play, i may drop form these 2 and just shoot for next year. If i dont feel like i can hold my own, i wont be doing these ones.

    well, i ran Mdrol awhile i just got rid of gyno and dont wanna walk that road/chance again. I was thinking bout an extended havoc cycle. If i cant get any within a month i will resort to OTC stuff to add to my GHRP6.

    So yea, if you have any good OTC ideas not involving M1T, Mdrol and PPlex im down. I have SERM access in a heartbeat. I plan to get some Deisel Test Hardcore soon too to stack onto things when i cut, which ill have Clen, Winny, and maybe some other things for that.

    Peace.
    GHRP6 is reconstituded and ready to go.

    When your starting as a newbie you dont want to be seen throwing around light weights but now that I actually know more about bodybuilding and such, I feel that doing lighter weights more reps with pauses or concentration onto the muscle really helps to sculpt the muscle. The owner of the gym always told me to take my shoulders with light weight and heavy reps and extreme concentration. The same theory was applied with his wife and in all seriousness she isnt even competiting but she looks like she has EXTREME competition potential, (semi low body fat even after just having a kid) Ill keep my mind focused and maybe in a year or two ill hit up a natural show? who knows just mayyyybe for fun. I could always use that in my pick up line, hey baby, im a body builder. wanna dance?

    ill have to think about that. I think straight into it would be ok. Maybe start Torem and Deisel test right after and only run the Torem for a week?
    I think i could get away with straight into it though since ill be using a test booster right after. I have letro on hand to now always just incase.

    Chest/tris/calves
    legs/bis
    back/shoulders
    the next 2 days are up for grabs, i have to regulate by how i feel. If the legs are to sore i wont do back since i dont have good support, so ill hit chest and something else little.


    Abs are done at will since im only bulking now, i understand they need to be built etc etc. They will become regular at 2-3 months out for sure.

Although at my height thats not a lot considering how much muscle mass is covered. Im trying to hit the stage in two years at a possible 205-210. I think its do able considering the success of my first year. Youngins make the quicker gains for sure. What Im thinking about doing is hiring a personal trainer. I think joe franco might be the man im looking for. I feel that I lack in certian areas and a trainer whos been down the road will be able to point me in the right directions and such. You might want to look into it twitch. Under 200 bucks for 3 months of cyber training including diet plan/training questions about contest prepping. Makes me a little more comfortable doing it if I have someone whos there to guide you through it.

    GOOD LUCK DUDE!

    Im probably like 18% or 17% right now. I dropped down to 211. I checked today. So far it doesnt look like muscle mass suffered. It just looks like I dropped some fat and lost quite a considerable amount of water weight.

    AIming for 190 lean at 6'0! Then clean/lean bulking it up.

    P.S Im glad your doing a log twitch. It helps me monitor how the other guys are doing there stuff and how they do. Great way to learn from others and hear of their experience.
