  1. Weight: 192.2

    Top Sets:
    Deficit Deadlift: 325x10
    GM: 145x12
    Hack Squat: 235x20
    High Bar Squat: 235x15

    All numbers went up today. Volume went up as well. By the end I was falling to the floor after each set. I didn't think I was going to make it through, but I did. This better pay off in the end.

  2. hey when your counting your cals, do you count all carbs? I ask this because i have these tortillas that are:

    80kcals
    8g protein
    18g carbs - 12g fiber
    3g fat

    Now, this added up not including the -fiber is 131kcals.. but the package says 80, what do you do?

    Also, are you using myfitnesspal for your diet?

  3. Honestly I don't really count calories. I count protein from meat, fats from nut butters and oils, and carbs from rice and sweet potatoes.

    If I were you i would just subtract the fiber from the carbs.

  4. Yesterday

    Weight: 194.4

    Top Sets:
    DB Rows: 55x20
    DB Rows: 45x16
    Pulldowns: 105x17

    This was another pretty high volume workout. My lats were dead by the end. I adjusted the technique a bit and it really seemed to take my biceps out.

    Today I'm feeling pretty sick. Hoping its gone soon. We have a hurricane coming through, so a lot if gyms are closed today and tomorrow. I'm hoping I start feeling better by this afternoon and can get a lift in at some gym somewhere.

  5. Yesterday:

    Weight: 196.4

    Top Sets:

    Smith Calf Raise: 230x20
    DB Upright Row: 35x16
    BB Curl: 65x14

    This is the highest volume day yet. However the muscle groups are relatively small, so not anywhere near as bad as my leg day. Sweating like crazy by the end of the workout.

    Today:

    Weight: 194.8

    My calves are quite sore today. Biceps and shoulders feel pretty good. I'm almost over this cold I think. It started to move down in my chest yesterday. I got a lot of that crap out and I feel quite a bit better today.

    Today I get an entire day of clean cheating. I'm quite happy about that. However, the 10 days following will be very strict, no cheat meals. Next time I post pics I should be in the 180s...

  6. Just found another show on Nov. 10th. Planning on doing both shows. The Nov 10th one is an NGA natural show. The weight classes are a bit different. The plan for that one is to come in at 180 in the middle of light heavies. Then 176 for the NPC show two weeks later.

    So right now I'm 11 weeks out of my first comp. I'm getting stoked

    Cant wait to see progression, keep on pushin it bro!

  8. Yesterday I was still recovering from being sick (almost completely over it now) so I got to have a clean cheat all day. I consumed right around 4000 clean calories.

    Today

    Weight:195.2

    DB Bench: 95x16
    DB Bench: 80x14
    Cable Tri Ext: 130x20
    Pushups: BWx17
    Body Skulls: BWx21
    Incline DB Bench: 40x13...

    So much volume and pretty high intensity as well. My triceps are dead. I couldn't even feel them during the last few sets, it was like they were numb... Awesome workout.

  9. dude if your are going to compete you shouldnt be going up, maybe a pound or 2 following a high carb day but just being honest you don't look 11 weeks out, you look closer to 15 weeks. i promote a natural bb show and natty shows are about conditioning and if you dont have shredded glutes your not in true contest shape.

    Keep following along, I think I'll surprise you. Since I've decided to do this contest a few weeks before the other, we will be getting more aggressive. Again, good things to come.

    I'm not quite sure what you mean by the only going up a pound or two after carb ups... It's all about how depleted your glycogen stores are before the carb up. If I happened to have a lot of sodium as well, obviously its going to add a bit more weight.

    The plan is to drop 1.5 lbs a week. That's 16lbs. If its all fat I'm looking at 1% bf... Unrealistic, I'm hoping for 3%
    Need2 Transformation Progress http://anabolicminds.com/forum/needtobuildmuscle-mrsupps/167648-legacyfighters-needtobuildmuscle-contest.html

  11. sorry but you look like you are more than 16 lbs over contest weight , you look more like 25lbs but contest dieting isnt easy so best of luck either way.

  12. I'm at 10% bf at 194 lbs. That means 19.4lbs of body fat to be 0%. 25 lbs would be a significant loss of muscle mass.

  13. Top Lifts:

    Sumo squat: 335x4 no bueno (form was off)
    Sumo Squat: 295x10
    Sumo squat: 245x12
    GM: 165x8

    So much freaking volume today. I've been dreading this workout for the last five days... It hurt so good. Almost 20 sets total and finished in just over an hour. I thought the gym staff was going to have to clean me off the floor. It's not going to be easy to get out of bed in the morning.

  14. Weight 193.4

    Pull-ups: 15lbsx12
    Giant Set Pull-ups: 10,5,5
    DB Rows: 50lbx20

    Great back session today. I beat or tied all my reps from last time, and used more weight. Very nice pump in my lats, traps, and rhomboids. Almost no pump in my biceps. Exactly what I've been wanting. Still leaning out.
    Need2 Transformation Progress http://anabolicminds.com/forum/needtobuildmuscle-mrsupps/167648-legacyfighters-needtobuildmuscle-contest.html

  15. Weight: 193.2

    Top Sets:
    Calf machine: 145x27
    BB upright Rows: 95x15
    DB Curls: 40x12

    Very very high volume today. My calves were on fire. I'm seeing better separation and vascularity in my calves. Upright rows took me a couple sets to get the right hand position, the first couple sets were bothering my shoulders. The delts are starting to get more separation. Biceps went well. Pump was solid all the way through and I swear my biceps look bigger than they sir when I started dieting, AND I've got new stretch marks to prove this. Things are going well so far.

  16. Weight: 192.0

    Top sets:

    Low deads: 335x8 grip issues
    GM: 155x10
    Hack squat: 245x17
    Squat: 245x10

    Today I had to use a bar with almost no knurling. It seriously felt like a smooth bar. Grip was the limiting factor on deficit deadlifts. Hack squats went really well, but I had to shorten rest periods. Short rest periods really got to me during squats. I just died out. Another really solid session.

    I'm looking pretty lean today. Serratus are starting to show even when not flexing. Things are comic.g together

  17. Weight: 190.2

    Top Sets:

    DB Rows: 60sx20
    DB Rows: 50sx17
    Pulldowns: 110x18

    Another day of insane volume. Everything felt awesome. Great contractions, minimal bicep involvement. Weight is down and I'm looking leaner. 10 weeks out today. I've got a lot of progress to make yet, but I have no doubt that I will make it.

  18. bbing now? all over the place lol

  19. Yea, I've always wanted to do at least one Bodybuilding comp. You can learn so much about how your body reacts to diet and exercise when getting ready for a comp. That's the main reason I'm doing it. Plus all the volume is really going to set me up nicely when I decide to go back to powerlifting. My technique has gotten much better on squats because of BB'ing.

    Once I finish with my competitions in November I'll be switching back to a powerlifting and Olympic lifting hybrid program. I'm hoping I don't catch the Bodybuilding bug and just want to continue doing that... I would rather be a strength/power athlete.

  20. Yesterday

    Weight: 190.6

    Top Lifts:

    Smith Calves: 245x26
    DB upright Rows: 40sx20
    Cable curls: 110x14

    Ridiculously high volume yet again. PRs across the board. Monster pump in my delts. Had some cool new vascularity wrapping all the way around my bicep and front of my shoulders. Still looking leaner.

  21. Today, 189.0

    Today is the first day of my deload. Weight is right on track. Still have a long way to go in 10 weeks, but still feeling good about coming in at sub 4%
    Need2 Transformation Progress http://anabolicminds.com/forum/needtobuildmuscle-mrsupps/167648-legacyfighters-needtobuildmuscle-contest.html

  22. 193.2

    Weighed in several hours earlier than normal, and ate a little later than normal last night. So my weight today most likely isn't very accurate.

    Day 2 of deload felt great. Feels like I'm doing speed reps.

  23. In for more

    You'd be surprised. Bf fluctuates a lot with water retention. I was looking at losing like 40 lbs. got my bf tested at 210 and was 9%. I ended up weighing 188 at weigh ins and was heavy.

  25. Oh yea, I definitely understand that. But ive been down around 5-6% bf before. Occassional carb ups and lots of water tend to give a bit better idea of actual bodyfat loss, if that makes sense. I could drop ten lbs in the next three days with strict carb and glycogen depletion.

    Yesterday I weighed in at 189, but 3 of that is probably water so my real weight is around 192-193. I started off at 199 so 6-7 lbs of real weight loss is all that I would count
