    Legs are looking sick bro. Yeah good idea to back off when you felt a little pain. Like you said recover to hit quads another day then being benched by a serious injury. Lol 3 more weeks seems like ever especially when you body is working against you. Stay strong brother. You got this.

    Thanks a lot my friend! Def 3 weeks will feel like an eternity specially because i am feeling hungry all the time LOL!...Last few weeks are always tough...Last night i was watching the UFC fight at Buffalo Wild wings and i was feeling tired and so hungry that i had to leave before the last fight finished to come home and eat ...Tilapia + brocolli LOL!...my wife had some wings and the smell was driving me crazy!! LOL!....

    Yeah Johny..that fight was not what i was expecting and on top of that i was sooooooo hungry...that i couldnt stop looking at everybody's food LOL!...Hey tilapia is great...low fat content/high in protein and tastes great...it cooks pretty fast so you need to use medium temp while doing it...and you will get a moist interior with an almost crunchy ext....righg now i only use garlic powder to season it and then i add mustard when its done

    Update:

    Yesterday i trashed my DElts and Arms...great workout!

    I think is time for some full body update pics...Today i am 3 weeks out and i only have 2 more weeks to really push my self..because the last week its easier...more carbs and less exercise...

    On the other hand today i have scheduled High intensity cardio + calves..however my legs are feeling like rubber bands but i will find a way to get it done.

    Thanks for the ongoing support Johny! i appreciate it.....On the other hand i am glad you give my Delt triset a go! Yeah bro i dont use alot of weight either...normally 35's-40's dumbells and i end up with my delts trashed and looking like cannon balls LOL!.....One more thing...Do the triset after and heavy Overhead press exe (DB overhead Press or Military prees 3 sets x 5) and that is one killer delt workout....just try it and have ready your ice pack once you get home

Being so depleted and trying to pull 2.3 times my own bodyweight didnt feel really smart specially because it will only take one second to lose my form and get injured.

    Yesterday as usual i was feeling pretty depleted and drained...it was my 3rd low carb day and i had Calves + HIIT scheduled. I had a Decent Calf Workout nothing like i used to do a couple of months ago and it pissed me off but what can i do...i am running on low fuel...I hate the last 2-3 weeks before a show!...Anyway I started with HIIT wondering how i was going to pull it off...i decided not to think about it and eventually the adrenaline kicked in and after i finished my 15th interval i told to myself What the heck...Let’s keep going...till i collapse LOL!...someway somehow i managed to hit 30 intervals total! When I step off the machine my legs were shaking but i was feeling really good about my workout

    Pain is momentary but the satisfaction after reaching a goal last 4eva

    First of all thanks for stoping by my friend...i really appreciate the kind comments about my conditioning...i am NOT a big guy in any way... so my conditioning and my symetry are my strenghts. Getting ultra shredded is the only way i have a chance to beat the big boys LOL!....

    Also yes i feel very fortunate to be with the Genomyx family now and i will give my best shot to represent the company according to their principles and high standards

    Update:

    Feeling tired and with lack of energy seems to be something normal nowadays...did i mention how i hate the last 3-2 weeks before a show LOL!..Yesterday i did Back/Chest but i dont feel like typing my workout..this is how I tired i feel right now...i dont even feel seating infront of the computer

    Most people dont realize how hard this is...at this point specially when trying to push your body to unknown limits of bodyfat levels...my body is fighting back hard and i am trying to push it harder the other way.....But i wont let him take over...we are going to do it my way!!!!!:

    Today i have legs + cardio! It is going to be really tough mentally because my body dont want do lift heavy anymore to avoid wasting xtra energy and is making me feel like Sh!!T...but i cant be broken that easily! So it going to be my way or i will pass out....

    A little over 2 weeks out and i will beat this prep once again...i will raise my own standards as far as conditioning and keep the bar higher just to be pushed a liltle higher next year...thats the way it is! NO Easy way out...just hard work, the natural way

    Last night i had Scheduled High Intensity Interval Training for 35 min (5 min warm up/15 intervals/15 minutes cool down. Legs felt like if they weighted 100 lbs each from all the cardio + leg workouts that i have been doing...pretty much i have been beating my legs down without breaks for weeks...but yesterday was not the day to let them rest either...SO I DECIDED TO PUSH TO THE LIMIT AND I GOT 30 INTERVALS DONE with only two more weeks to go i need to keep pushing and finish strong! i will have time to rest once the show is over.

    This coming week will be the hardest and toughest of them all...its time to depleate carbs in other words i will be on a low carb all week starting tomorrow. Next one is easier..its peak week and i will eat more carbs to fill out and i wont be working out too hard either.

    Finally a couple of shots from two weeks out once i got back home from cardio

    Yesterday was Lowerbody Day.

    I was surpriced that i felt a lot better than monday. So i decided to push but being very carefull because i dont want any injuries right now...i am ready to start my offseason at full speed in 2 weeks and i have to be healthy.

    In addition you will notice that i dont change my core exercises during my prep and thats because it helps me to stay injury free. Let me explain ...by doing the same exes I can still do very heavy stuff right ( for example 2 weeks ago i was doing romaninan deads with 405) because my soft tissue are used to the weight and the angle of the movement used..for instance i can push as heavy as i can and get the benefits of heavy weights but without risking an injury. If i decided to for example start doing hacks squats right now my muscles would be ready to push a good amount of weight but not my tendons and the result could be an injury. okk nuff talk

    10 pl/side x 10

    3. LEG PRESS DROP SET ( This thing hurts)
    10 plates/side x 10 + 8 plates/side x 10 + 6 plates/side x 10 + 4 plates/side x 10 + 2 plates /side x failure.

    Finally today is the last day of depletion...i just need to make it thru LOL!...however i have to admit that yesterday was not a bad day at all...i had a tough time at the gym at first but i had a good workout overall and i was not supper hungry either. I am looking supper hard right but flat and i am drinking +1.5 gallons of water and eating more sodium. Tomorrow i will start loading carbs slowly and I WONT BE TRAINING sat & sun...Finally a few days off the gym!! well almost i have to do HIIT cardio..but with more food in my system that is going to be like a walk in the park

    Yesterday i did Back/Chest. I dont really feel like posting all my workout today..but the workout was great and i did 40 minutes on the threadmill to finish.

    Today will be the penultimate leg workout of this prep...and this will be the a tough one because i have to push hard...but after this one everthing is downhill!!...i am so exited that my legs will get a break after ive being beating the hell out of them for 20 weeks LOL!

    Today i started to carb up...and i am holding water and not looking that sharp because of the sodium load phase. LOL! on the other hand finally the carb depletion is over and i can get to eat more! However i had a bad day today...i felt very tired and very hungry! I need more food!!...monday is my highest carb day and i am really looking foward to that

    I did HIIT Cardio only today...it was very painfull to finish the intervals...legs are very tired.
