Early Contest Preparation
DISCLAIMER: I'm just a gym rat who is tired from working out without a goal. I don't want to dedicate all my life, money, and time just to win a competition. I'm doing this for fun, so once it starts affecting my other goals in life, I will just quit!
So, here is my story....
I will be stuck in Japan for 3+ years on a PhD scholarship. I have a reasonable income, so much time to exercise, cook, and sleep, a small gym where I'm the only one working out(!!), and above all, I can get juice legally in here :headbang:
So here is the plan:
1- The Contest:
It's a Japanese physique competition. I won't expect any professionals over there. Nothing near the sizes and conditioning of American and European ones.
I'm thinking of joining the competition on August 2015.
From now until April (with some breaks) I will be on keto diet priming before bulking up. I tried many types of diet and I found that it is giving me the best results mentally and physically. I wanna be at 10% by that time.
After that I will have a 14 weeks bulking up cycle (1.5 g/lb protein, 500g carb and 100g of fat to be adjusted according to my body weight), 3 months maintenance, another 14 weeks of bulking up, 2 months maintenance, then 3 months cutting and contest preparation (keto diet or low fat medium carbs?). Very low sugar, I don't mind bland and boring food, and I drink 200ml of whiskey at least 3 times a month.
4 days a week, ~50 minutes per day. Upper body, lower body, and repeat. I don't do cardio coz I do all my transportation either on feet or cycling, in addition to spending most Saturday's dancing! I will consider doing cardio during my contest prep months. I have a very old injury in both wrists, which don't allow me to do curl like movements easily. I usually substitute curls with hammer curls
Bulking up with 400mg - 600mg of Tren E and 125mg Test E, cruising with 125mg Test E, and prepping on 400mg Tren Ace and 125 Test E. I can handle Tren easily with minimum side effects. My biggest concern is losing breath when I do heavy workouts or dancing. This had led me to many panic attacks and vomiting before. I tried using Singulaire, and I could use it to alleviate some of the symptoms. However, this relief is only temporary and it wouldn't last for more than 6 hours in my case. I don't have night sweats, and no sleeping problems. I might use Prami to counter the sexual side effects (it's very hard for me to ejaculate on tren!!).
I'm living in Japan, where steroids are legal. I can even get HG steroids. Still, I prefer getting UG from the sponsors coz it's much cheaper.
Multivitamin, flaxseed oil, creatine, and glutamine.
6- My current stats:
5'9, 190lbs, ~15% bf.
I'm an absolute beginner, and I hope that you can give me enough advice regarding training, diet, gear, supplementation, and schedule.
