    Madds87, Contest Prep for Coastal USA Bodybuilding August 17th!


    HERE IT IS!

    Madds87 is at it again! I took a nice little break from my last and first show back in October and I feel as though I have taken enough time to "Bulk-up". I have been training hard and heavy, and I think im ready!

    MY competition is a while from now. 25 weeks away to be exact. This will allow me plenty of time to get as much muscle as I can and to mature that muscle before I start to really cut up for my comp. Of coarse I can still slowly lean out since I have plenty of time.

    MY Stats:
    5'8
    192
    Fat % I would say im up there. I wont be tracking my fat, I will be judging through pictures.

    MEASUREMENTS (Not Flexed)
    Arms:15.5"
    Quads:25"
    Calves:15.5"
    Forearms:13.5
    Chest:42.5"
    Midsection (across belly button):38" (YIKES!)

    DIET:
    (this will change of coarse)
    Meat: Ground Turkey, Chicken, Fish (Swai, Tilapia, Salmon), Beef (Slow roasts only)
    Veggies: All!
    Fruits: All
    Carbs: Pasta, Rice (Brown, White, Jasmine, All grains), Potatoes (all), Occasional biscuits and bread.
    My goal right now is 4500 cals but will also try to get 5000. I will cheat sometimes since life is hard sometimes and a perfect diet 100% of the time is almost impossible. These cals will also decrease once I get closer and closer. My diet is getting cleaner and cleaner daily.

    Staple Supps:
    Fish Oil 10grams daily
    ADAM Multi 2pills
    Neem 2pills
    Cycle Support 4pills
    (Everything else will change throughout time)

    I was able to get sponsors through my off time. Special Thanks to ANDRO FACTORY and 24/7 Family Fitness in Rincon, GA. They are my daily inspiration to become PRO one day.

    My training will vary and change also. I will be posting my training up throughout the week. I will also be doing videos. We will see how that goes im not a director.

    Welll im not sure man.... it all depends on how some of these cycles that i have up my sleeve work... my ultimate goal would be a sweet solid 180.... but well see im really hoping that the igf lr3 will solidify my gains for my pct... we will see though... last contest was around 165... so anything above that i would be happy.... honestly if i was 165 that would be a sick 165....

    I did anything and everything lol.... mostly deadlifts and partial deadlifts (partials you use a sumo stance deadlift and only lift the bar to just a little below your knee. I would use light weight and go for like 30 reps.)
    Back extensions, good mornings, cable back extensions. Deadlifts worked really well for me just had to do lighter weight and higher reps...

    I tried to go back to diet, but was only able to get 4000 cals yesterday and also ran out of groceries. So I had to get creative. I only ate three meals but they were big ones. This weekend I will be going out and meeting up with family. Time to eat and recover from all of my workouts this week. For bfast this morning im going to go get me a philly I think.... Or a philly omelet.... yum yum.... I started this thread near the end of my workouts this week. Ill be starting workouts again this coming Monday, which will be legs again. Im also excited about tonight, going to see the new movie "Jack the giant slayer". Should be good.

    Hmmmm.... The High reps do suck... Hitting 20 to 30 just blows! lol.... But how do you finish your deadlift? Do you hyper extend at the top of each deadlift?

    Okay!
    Felt better today and did some chest and bis.

    Incline smith bench 10x10
    Cable flys incline 3x15
    Machine flys 3x10
    Incline smith bench 4x2 heavy heavy 1 set of 20 then another of 50.

    Preacher curls 3x10 slow and contracting

    I discovered that if you tilt your elbows inward that you can focus more of your outer peak of your bis.... never done that before and def made my bis hurt...

    Also have some Bulk Up coming in and i will start taking it once it comes in for a six week bulk. Maybe ill hit 200! Crossing my fingers!
