    Yes if you can get to where you can sleep holding an iron cross on the rings your lats will just grow and grow.

    I was always mesmerized by these guys. I wanted to be a gymnast when I was a kid so bad. I knocked myself out more than once teaching myself front and rear hand spring, areal cart wheels, front flips, even got to where I could do a round off into a back flip which was awesome.

    Kleen is getting more ripped by the day. Comparing these pics to those early on really shows the work and dedication. It's like the sculpture that shows a chiseled body coming out of a block of stone. Congrats and keep it going!

We are still not done, it was a bit crazy. So Saturday knowing I had a limited time we went to the gym and I did my legs, was supposed to start with squats but the racks were all in use so I started with leg press first. I went a bit heavier on the leg press this time since I was fresh.

    Leg Press Feet Low and close together to activate quads - 60 seconds rest - 630x10, 720x10, 720x10, 720x10, 810x10, 810x10, 810x10, 810x10 - Squat rack opened up so I moved over to the Squats before someone took them.

    Squats 90 seconds rest - 135x8, 225x8, 315x8, 365x5, 385x5, 385x3, 395x3, 395x3

    I was out of time here, all of the waiting around for leg machines really cut into the workout but I still got plenty of work done.

    Sunday off and painting all day

    Monday - Chest and Back

    Superset A = 10x10 & 60 seconds rest
    HS Incline Chest Press (weight per side) - 95x10, 95x10, 105x10, 10, 10, 10, 10, 10, 10, 9.5 almost made that last rep but couldn't get it.
    Wide Grip Lat Pull Down - 170x10, 190x10, 10, 210x10, 10, 10, 10, 10, 10, 9.5 gave it hell trying to get 10 but just wasn't happening.

    Superset B - 4x10-12, 60 seconds rest
    DB Flat Bench Press - 80x12, 95x12, 95x10, 80x11 - Was very hard but impressed I got this heavy after 10x10 pressing.
    HS Row Pronated Grip - 70x12, 70x12, 75x12, 75x11 - I was pulling hard by the end it was some serious work even at this lower weight.

    FST-7 Free Motion Cable Cross Over - 45x12, 45x12, 12, 12, 12, 12, 20 - I change the angles on a few sets of this and then pushed for maximum reps on last set because someone interrupted my rest period and I ended up resting about 90 seconds.

    FST-7 Close Neutral Grip Cable Rows 150x12, 12, 180x12, 12, 12, 12, 10 - Talk about a massive pump, arms were popped out off my sides, swollen up like I was stung by bees!

    Okay so here are my pictures from Monday morning 211.2 lbs dry weight. I am thickening up and still leaning gradually. THings are going really well at this point.

    Thanks Monte! Lots of pushing right now, diet has remained on point and training is very productive.

    Thanks Kenpo! That is the goal, trying to hold as much mass as possible while getting leaner is a longer process then a full on cut but it is worth it in the end.

    That's impressive.
    Thanks Luke, changes are coming at a great pace. I have no complaints, even though I didn't get as much training this past weekend and beginning of the week I see changes. All of the activity with the painting and going up and down ladders all day kept me burning calories.

    Thanks Bean! I am happy with the plan as it stands. I have about 2 more weeks then we will be adjusting to some lower calories and what not, changing to a lower volume level and keep on crushing it.

    Thanks Doug! You are correct when it comes to changing my body I can get it done pretty well once I have my motivation and a plan I am confident in the execution becomes almost automatic.


    I was supposed to do some dead lifts yesterday but my lower back was aching all day. I think it has to do with all the hours on the ladder and not getting in enough water over the weekend. On top of that last night I just felt sick to my stomach and was still feeling rough this morning. It is better than yesterday but I don't want to be pulling 400+ lbs while experiencing this type of stomach discomfort or lower back pain. I will have to go lift tonight and if my lower back is not quite happy then I will just do arms and shoulders then hit the deads later in the week or something.

    Yah deads when not feeling 100% would be tough. There are a lot of exercises you could do to replace them that are almost as good though.

    Haha I have really been working on muscle density. Very impressive isn't it.


    Sorry I haven't been on much I have been sick as a dog for a few days and then my Mom just came to visit so it has been a bit rough to get on the computer. I have not been to the gym since Tuesday and am just now starting to re-hydrate. Tomorrow will be my first workout since getting ill. Although I am not 100% yet I am itching to get into the gym.

    Surprisingly I look pretty good for having been sick most of the week. I have been working hard to try to get calories in and keep them down. I am maybe a little leaner, obviously not as much progress as the last two weeks but still progress none the less. At least I think that I am a bit leaner I am sure due to not getting quite the amount of cals in as I needed. I am still going to take progress pictures tomorrow and post them up.

    Okay so I lost some weight while being sick. I think I look pretty damn good for having an unscheduled week out of the gym. I think I look better than last week. What do you all think? Be honest...

    Yeah I do direct arm work this is my issue for certain, my arms are just over 17.5 flexed with no pump. I have been training them but they seem to be stuck. Unfortunately along with that my back is so damn wide and thick and grows without any real effort so they get completely overshadowed by my back.

    AMEN on the light weights.

    Speaking of light weights this was my first workout back from being sick.

    Yesterday was a push day, more strength based with a twist. I was doing 2 second negatives on every thing instead of just exploding it up and down quickly.

    Push Day -1 Strength rep range 3-5 on compounds and 6-8 on isolations. Tempo 2-0-1, 90 seconds rest between sets.

    Incline BB Bench - 135x5, 185x5, 225x5, 245x5, 255x3 + 2 assisted - Yay I had a spotter for that last one. Surprised how well my shoulder held up. The slower negatives definitely made for some hard work but still a good lift.

    DB Flat Bench - 100x5, 110x5, 120x5, 125x4
    - I did a 15 second negative on the last rep since I knew I would not get another rep.

    Decline DB FLies - 55x8, 55x7, 55x6
    - Wow what a burn in the pecs. Felt amazing.

    Shoulder Press - 110x10, 155x5, 170x5, 185x3


    DB Side Raise - 45x8, 45x8, 45x6

    Dips Body Weight Close Grip one set of 45 dips. I really wanted to get 50 in one set here but couldn't muster anymore go. I was supposed to get in CGP, and Skull Krushers but ran out of time so the max reps on Dips was my improv...

    That back double bi shot is insane. Your back is always so damn impressive. Legs are looking vascular and beastly. Nice work can definitely see you leaned up.

    Def looking great Chris! What do attribute your monster back to? Genetics? I know you work your ass off but I'm just curious. Keep at it. Boss body at work. Cannot wait to see the final package .

    Turtle Back, that is awesome! I have never heard that one before. Thanks, and not sure that I would say I am looking better than you but I will definitely take that as a major compliment. As far as my arms I really feel I need solid 18-18.5 which is what most people my size have at this body fat. However I would venture to say my arms are a lot leaner than most guys holding as much fat as I am in the stomach. My arms won't shrink much so hopefully I can still have at least 17.5 inches on stage even 10-15 lbs from now. I did mention to Matt I wanted to focus a bit more on my arms to get them growing along with my medial and rear delts. I feel I can just do some maintenance on my back and chest while concentrating on those areas but I think Matt is planning a way for me to grow them more while pushing the limits on the shoulders and arms. I will say from the back though I can definitely see that my rear delts have come up.

    Thanks Jeff, things are going surprisingly well considering I am just coming off an illness.

    Rick! Nice to have you in the log. I am giving this one a bit of hell but am taking notes from a coach this time around. Some very interesting dietary modulation going on that keeps me on my toes.

    Yeah it was intense. I barely got the 125's up for that 4rth one so I just fought it all the way down. This is the heaviest I have been on DB's in quite some time. I honestly didn't expect to get up to that weight with the 2 second negatives.

    Thanks Bean! I would attribute my "monster back" to a few different factors. My traps are a lot of genetics, my lats have always been a pretty good spread. However most of my thickness especially the lower traps and lats have come up drastically since I began to do more dead lifts and rows.

    Alright back again this time it was a pull day.
    Took 1 scoop IGNITE 2, 1 scoop Creatrona, one scoop Apple BCAA SAA in pre workout mix upon rising and then another scoop of BCAA SAA in my water bottle and went of to the gym. Was majorly energized by the time I got into the gym.


    Tempo 2-0-1, Reps 3-5 on compounds and 6-8 on isolation, 90 seconds rest


    Wide Grip Weighted Pull Ups - BWx5, BW+10 x5, BW+25 x4, BW+25 x3 - This was pretty hard, I have not done wide grip pull ups in a long time.

    Barbell Bent Over Rows - 135x5, 225x5, 275x4 - I had not done these in a while too and was decently impressed with 4 reps at 275 considering the 2 second negatives.

    Bent Over DB Dead Stop Rows 80x8, 90x8, 110x8 - again numbers are looking very solid. I can't complain at all about them.

    Face Pulls - 130x8, 140x8, 150x8 - These felt great, a bit challenging to post up to do them at the 140 and 150 but felt great on the rear delts.

    Barbell Curls - 135x5, 135x4, 135x3 - Man these were really hard especially the last reps of the second and 3rd set and required a little body english to get to the top but the 2 second negatives were very strict. This is much heavier lifting than I have been doing for biceps.

    DB Curls - 45x5, 40x8, 40x5, 35x6 - Biceps were just toasty by this time. Was a great workout.

    Crunches - 15 reps with 2 second negatives every 15 seconds for 5 minutes. Man talk about abs burning. One of the bricks in my upper abs got cramped up at the end, lets me know I was killing them.

    Matt just changed up my macros a bit, I am back to 250 grams of carbs a day every day for a little bit. Protein came down a tiny bit to adjust for the calories. I think things are going really well.
