  4. I plan on it. Still debating whether I should stick to lighweight or go back to physique though. I kimd of prefer Physique, but the odds pf turning pro as a lightweight fbb are just better right now due to the popularity of the new physique category.

    I just do Physique, weigh in pre show about 200lbs, plan on being at 205 lbs this season. If I had more mass, I would do BodyBuilding, but I think minimum I need to be 212-217lbs at my height.

    Physique is challenging with all the competitors, but fun too. More fun for females then males.

  7. Got a time table for may next year to do a local north east NPC show. Currently around 250 clean bulking looking to start cuting after new year to 225 and evaluate. At least that's the plan so far anyway till I see the schedule.

    Physique is geting very competitive at least in the NY metro area.

  9. ^yeah last comp was a beast. First time I took stage, for pre judging, there was 38 others with me. The judges did 3 cuts just to look at the competition together. Out of the 38, 30 were worthy and looked good. Leaness is becoming awesome. Competitors are dropping more and more fat, and becoming g very rippied

  10. How much cardio do you end up doing to prep?

  11. I do cardio consitently all year. I maintain 10-12%BF when not competing. When in pre comp mode, about 6 weeks out I perfect my diet, and add 15 min extra cardio. How I judge it, is I make my diet a 3,500 cal deficit a week, so 500 cals per day. Thats a lb of fat. As I get 4 weeks out I readjust depending how I look. The mirror doesnt lie, and neither does my wife. If I need ledd cals and more cardio I bump it up, if I am looking good I stay the same. About 2 weeks out, I do it again a re evaluate depending on my mirror. If I need more fat loss I add cardio in the morning, fasted with BCAA. If not I keep it the same.

    This is similar to my plan this off-season. Fasted cardio 5 days a week for 45min with 2 scoops modernBCAA on my belly. It's working awesome right now.

    As of late I'ved been concentrating to stay lean year round too, much easier to cut. Funny about your wife..mine is the same she is tough on me too lol!
    Im debating if I should do 45min cardio or 15-20HIIT....So far been doing 10min HIIT with alow carb diet to maintain, but im on the fence what to do contest prep between HIIT or reg 45-1h cardio
    Do you take any fat burners like t3?

  14. I prefer cardio training. But thats because I like to split it up with my workouts. Days off of work I do Morning cardio and evening workouts. If need be I would follow up with more cardio.

    As far as T3, I have never used it. I have a bottle of liquid T3, but didn't want to mess with the Thyroid. I do like Albuterol and Clenbuterol. Some people dont like them, I think they are effective. Just start out slow.

    I like modern BCAA, USP did a good job with them. I had about 10 sample packets and they were pretty good.They are nice and fine, not gainy. I was mixxing Blox with Dymatize 5050 unflavored BCAA which I like too. I have a lot of Dymatize 5050 (1000g) so I am thinking of MIO with the unflavored BCAA, I will let you know if it mixes well. And how it taste.

    I would rather preffer not to take t3 for same concerns as you stated. I got a box just in case, but I might give clen a shot first and alternate HIIT and regular cardio.
    Do you keep weight training sessions short and intense?

  17. Right now I am bulking. Trying to add a little to my biceps and back this year. So I hit weights, do slow reps and still keep my rest about a minute. I warm up with about 20 reps of light weight and do 4 to 5 heavy sets. I shoot for 8 to 10 reps. Sometimes less.

    Once I am done with about 45-1hr of weight training I jump on cardio.

    That's my schedule on days I work. When I am off, I may do cardio in am and weight training in evening.

    Yeah I really like USP bcaa. I logged iSatori bcaa a bit ago. Not bad either. I like to do them before before and mix two servings. When I get up in the middle of the night I take the second serving. Works out pretty good for me anyway

    My sessions are very similar to yours, try to keep it under 1 hour. I've been doing something similar where I do high reps to warm up then drop reps and increase weights. About 1 min rest seems to be my sweet spot too, sometimes I superset and it gets even more intense with great pumps.
    For the next few weeks Im going to hammer compound exercises and only train 3 days a week and every time to failure. I need to shock the body into growing a bit. Have you tried something like that or used a different method?

  20. Last year, I did a push pull routine, with a 2 day split. Mon (chest/back) tues (shoulders/Abbs/cardio) wed off thurs (legs) fri(bis/tris/cardio) sat off sun (cardio abs). My workouts were long, about 2 hours some days. I grew nicely though. After 8 weeks, plus upping cals to about 500 over maintnance, I put on about 10lbs. About 4 was muscle when I cut back down. I was strict on my calories and when I ate.

    After those 8 weeks, I changed my routine to one body part per day and 6 days a week working out. I completed my workout with cardio and a short abb routine. This leaned me while keeping my muscle.

    Purpose of bcaa with cardio?

    Since its fasted and on keto, BCAA insure that muscle is being spared and if there's glucogenisis(sp?) going on, they'll take care or it. Also helps suppress cortisol, which is highest in the morning. Leucine helps kick start protein synthesis so my meal could be considered more anabolic when I do eat & leucine has also been shown to create insulin sensitivity to some degree.

  24. Simply put BCAA=Muscle Sparing

    especially when fasted. it's muscle fuel.
