  1. Build up to cut down MCcrews road to the SD physique show!


    So I competed a few years back in bodybuilding and got stomped on for being tallish but not massive. My muscle definition was stellar but the bulk was just not there so this time I am going to switch styles and see if I can go pretty boy and compete in the San Diego Mens Physique category next march. I stay some what lean through out the year and I know that if my diet stays on point I can do a beneficial lean bulk and put on a few lbs then come the first of the year work and shred down. I will be documenting my supplementation, work outs food and posting progress pics. Any and all supplements that I take will be of my own pocket book (unless a rep wants to sponsor me )

    I welcome any and all advice/ criticisms and any and all questions
    Cheers


    Stats
    6 foot
    203 lbs
    12-15% BF

    Target for bulk
    210lbs
    14-16% BF

    Target for cut
    195-200lbs
    4-6% BF for show

    I just never knew you were in such good shape and were in a position to compete.

    I always assumed you were just another gym rat (because I've only come across your posts in passing).

    It has been a few years since i have competed and I think that if the option to go into a physique competition vs body building I would have done really well. I am basing my assumption just looking at the people that competed in this years SD classic. I will find my old photos and post them up and let the AM community be the judge but I have spent the last few years building and building and now that this class is gaining a bit more reputation I think it would be a fun time to jump in and do it again.

    If I live every moment believing, then the chaos in my heart will be a beautiful thing.-
    I am in love, but not in love with someone or something, I am in love with my life. And for the first time, in a long time, everything is inspiring.-

  17. Ok So I was thinking it over last night and I am going to make this run with out any synthetic hormonal assistance. I have a few bottles of epistain M1A and few other things but I want to see what I can do on my own. I am going to do a 60 day run of Erase, DAA, and ARA, along side a pre-work out while Im bulking so I can keep a hard appearance and also to see if I would benefit from running it (minus the PWO) during contest prep into the show. For the next two months I will be running a 5x5 work out routine going 2 days on 1 day off. I will be hitting my calves 3 days a week because if Im going to be judged in board shorts I want those puppies to pop! I will be running roughly 400-600 cal above normal but the excess calories will come from high protein med-low fat meats and complex carbs.

    It was! but it was arms and chest day for everyone else. I am convinced that people are doing three two day splits at my location. Day one Chest Day two arms & repeat over and over again. I actually had a guy ask me if I was really "using all that space for my lunges" I just laughed and let him continue his smith machine chest press.

    Oh BTW made a bomb dinner last night oven roasted butternut and sage pasta with pine nuts and a little bit of olive oil and a bunch of garlic! Sooooo good!

    If you have a lower carb version, but it always tastes better when someone else makes it.

  26. Lol at the comment. The overall message I got from the article is to not keep things bottled inside until you're about ready to blow up. More likely to feel repressed and resentment. Express yo self.
