Show Time....Nov 8th.
It's show time baby.......I finally made up my mind to do a show after a 3 year hiatus. Feeling refreshed after taking a whole week off, now it's buisness time! I guess I could bore ya'll with the formalities of age and the like but blah blah blah..... I'll just post my diet and weight training log. My diet and training arn't the norm. Took me 10 years to get to this point so if you wanna try it go ahead but don't expect crazy result do to different biomechanics. First part of the week is power workouts, I hit this when I'm fresh and really just focus on getting the weight. At this part of the week I don't give a damn about squeezing and sh&&t. When you got 345 on incline you ain't thinking bout squeezing, you wanna get the sh&&t off you. Then the last part of the week is Volume Training, superset, drop sets, giant sets....everything. This is where i focus on the pump and squeeze. My week is broken down like this.....
Monday is the WHOLE upper body, it goes down like this Incline Press, Barbell Row, Da lift, Barbell Millitary, Hang Cleans 5 sets 5 reps.
Tuesday is the WHOLE lower body, squats, stiff leg deadlift, seated and standing calf raises 5 sets 5 reps
Wed off & 1 hour cardio
Thursday WHOLE upper body, Incline press, side laterals, lat pulldown, Hammer dips, hammer rows, Hammer curls, Zottaman curls, Rev shrugs, Skull crushers, Rear laterals, seated rows..... 3 sets 12 reps of all exercises. I'm practically out of breath the whole workout...
Friday off 1 hour cardio
Sat WHOLE lower body, super set Leg ext with squats, super set leg curls with stiff leg, drop set standing calf raises, drop set seated calf raises......4 sets 20 - 30 reps
Sun 1 hour cardio
Meal 1 5 eggs, 2 cups spinach
Meal 2 2 scoops Nectaur, 1 tbls peanut oil
Meal 3 8 oz Lean GRD beef, 1 cup broccoli, 1/2 tbls olive oil
Meal 4 2 scoops Nectaur, 1 tbls Peanut oil
Meal 5 8 oz Chx, 1/2 avocado, 1 cup green beans
Meal 6 (post workout) 2 scoop Nectaur, 1/2 cup oatmeal
meal 7 8 oz chx, 1/2 avocado
Meal 8 1 scoop Nectaur, 1/2 tbls peanut oil
Supps: Venom 3.0, Kre alklyn, Nectaur Whey Protein
Thats the whole sha bang, oh by the way my starting weight is 241 lbs and I'm 5'9. Going to be around 205 - 210 this time around. I will post my first log entry tonight. Stay tuned.....

Yo 2 hours of D-ball ain't no punk, man I was sweating like a run away slave...but I had fun and they did too. They are around 15 - 16 years of age, so tha yung dudes saw how big I was and thought that I would be slow. Should have seen the look on their eyes.

Naw I'm 241 - 239lbs these where from last year at the end of my gaining phase.
06-24-2008, 03:38 PM
Nice split. I was going a split like that previously (upper power, lower power, off, chest/back hypertrophy, legs hypertrophy, arms/shoulders hypertrophy) but have since switched it into each workout like that.
Everyday starts off with one power movement, for 4 sets x 6-10 reps of pure power, followed by slow and controlled reps.
06-24-2008, 03:42 PM
It's taxing the first few weeks but after that the pistons get going.

So all pressing movements are out, all I could do was push downs, preacher curls, kick backs, side laterals and rows. Really didn't go that heavy niether. My fiances gonna check my out tonight, she a physical Therapist. Man I was pissed as hell, but I could'nt be mad at any one but myself.

07-01-2008, 12:09 AM

Seated Calf press 290 x 15, 295 x 15, 320 x 12, 320 x 12
Felt good, sqauts still not where they should be, got get back in the groove with those. There's a sweet spot on my back where I place the bar, and I seem to lose it when I take time off. Everything else is moving up nicley, with leg curls I might have to up the reps.
Diet wise I start what I call up revving, right now I'm around 2,700 - 2,900 kcals. Now it's time for me to throw in some more calorie until I get to my beginning calorie base. Around 3,800 kcal. Then I'll start adding cardio until I reach 1 hour 5 days a week. Thats the reason why I start contest prep 20+ weeks out. I actually gain muscle while doing all my diet changes.

weighed in today at 235, which might sound like I'm not losing weight. But I'm upping my cals to 3,800 so I'm actually losing fat and filling my muscles with glycogen at the same time. I should be 234 or so Sunday.

That will give my knees a break. I don't get sore with heavy weight anymore and my legs stopped growing with heavy weight so I gotta change things up. Hell I might even go to 40, we'll see.
