    BPS...the man, the myth....the sponsored athlete!


    at my own title (don't worry I'm not arrogant, I just thought it had a nice ring to it.)

    So anyway, after seeing a few of the sponsored athletes post some information about themselves I thought that I would get in on the action, so without further ado....here it goes....

    Screen Name: Big Poppa S
    Real Name: Steve
    Age: 28
    Ht: 5'11
    Wt: Current 261lbs, Last comp 208lbs
    Sport(s): Bodybuilding, Powerlifting, Hockey

    So who am I? I've been an athlete all my life, playing everything from hockey to baseball, lacrosse to track, and anything and everything inbetween. I eventually started focusing on hockey playing junior back in Saskatchewan (home province) and University in Ottawa. After I finished up my competitive hockey career I was looking for a new challenge to motivate myself in the gym... luckily enough my girlfriend had just started competing in figure competitions so it was a natural fit for me to take up bodybuilding. Although the training was vastly different from what I had been doing for the last 8 years I immersed myself in it, competing in 3 shows in my first 2 years, placing 4th, 3rd and 2nd at the provincial level. Everything seemed to be going great until my girlfriend got accepted to take Dietetics and Nutrition on the otherside of the country....after much conversation we decided to make the move. Looking back on it I now think it was definitely the right decision however we've spent the better part of the last 2 years trying to recover from the expense and the culture shock. So mainly for financial reasons I haven't done a BB show in the last couple years, however now that we're back on our feet I feel it's time to break out of my shell again.

    Being out here on the East coast there are not a ton of BB shows to compete in (they are few and far between) so to fill the gap I have recently taken up powerlifting, and will be competing in the Provincial meet at the end of May (as a MST sponsored athlete!! ). I plan on qualifying for the 2009 Nationals either at this meet or at another one later in the summer. Bridging the gap between those shows I will be competing in some strongman/highland games events. Talk about busy!! Finally, in the fall, as long as my body is still holding up I am planning on doing my first BB show in 2 years at a Drug tested show held in New Brunswick. It's going to be a long (but great) year and I am extremely happy to have Matt and MST partnering with me along the way.

    Misc Info. Some extras about me..... I am a certified personal endurance and strength trainer, previously owning a PT business prior to my move (gave it up for a steady paycheck, so we could get back on track). I volunteer coach Pee Wee AAA hockey (11 and 12 yr olds), as well as playing on my own "gentlemen's" team during the winter. I also just started assisting with a Spring strength and conditioning program for the same age group of kids that'll run till June....as you can see I like to stay busy! I am also a former GNC (I know they're the devil ) employee, I think I've tried just about every type of supplement you could imagine (no PH's or AAS, just not my style), so if anyone has training or supplementation questions feel free to ask.

    It has been and is my lifelong goal to not only give myself a healthy body but to assist all those interested in also achieving their goals so it is an amazing boost to me personally when a company like Millennium Sport Technologies turns the tables to assist me!! Thanks again guys!!! Looking forward to a great year!

    OFF TOPIC: Does MST have a facebook group yet? It seems like FB is a new marketing tool for many companies in the fitness industry....if not anyone have any interest in creating one?

    No, I'll just be watching this one due to the Provincial powerlifting meet at the end of May(DD's not competing either due to this summer being her first dietetic internship and the fact that she would've had to be carb-depleting during finals - which is never advisable), however, WNSO/FAME Maritimes is a go so far, it'll be in October.

    Seems like it's been forever since I've been on here....My laptop is kaput so I've been trying to log on using my old desktop system (old as in I bought it in 2000) and it's having it's own issues.

    The workouts have been going pretty decent, I strained my back a little doing deadlifts but I've rested it up nicely and I'm ready for my max-out week. I'm not sure if I'll have videos for these but I'm going to try (depends if the GF will do it or not).

    I'll keep on updating here rather than starting an actual log, so be on the lookout for the max-out updates coming this week!

    Max-out Squats


    It wasn't too bad but I was really hoping on getting a little more..... regardless I still have almost 4 full weeks of prep before the meet so there's still time for progress, plus I was not wearing a squat suit. Haven't decided if I'm going to use one or not.

    FYI - I also forgot to take my camera to get some video, I'll make a note so I remember tonight for Bench.

    Squats

    10@135
    10@225
    8@315
    5@405
    1@435
    1@475 - didn't quite make depth, maybe an inch from it.
    1@475 - easily made depth
    1@505 Personal Best - again, didn't quite make depth, 2 inches to go.

    - that's it by the end of that I was pretty tired.

    Cardio

    No cardio, wanted to make sure that my legs and body were ready and rested for the squats.

    Energy Level: I was pumped and ready to go, energy was right where it needed to be. 10/10

    Workout Rating: A+, I'm actually quite happy with the lifts as my prior PR was 495 and was no where near depth so there is definite improvement but if I want to get 600 at the meet I've still got a lot of progress to make.

    Post Workout Musings: I feel that I'm on-track to make some good lifts, I really just want to get my lifts on the board for my first contest and I'll let the placings end up where they end up.

    Macros:
    Calories: ~2500 kcal

    Water intake: 7 litres

    Morning:
    1 Fish Oil
    1 Multi
    2 Shred-XS
    3 Kreaceps

    Lunch:
    1 Fish Oil
    2 Shred-XS HARDCORE

    Pre-workout:
    1 Fish Oil
    2 Shred-XS
    1 scoop Ragnarok

    Maxed out bench tonight, although I'm not very happy with it so I'm not going to post the vids. As you can see below my lifts wouldn't have been accepted so there's still room for progress

    Bench Press

    10@135
    10@225
    8@315
    3@355
    1@385 - this would have counted as I paused and pressed perfectly.
    1@405 - I paused fine but struggled on the press, holding the weight for a count of 1 on your chest really makes this hard
    1@405 - once again was able to hold the pause easy but struggled with the press.
    1@425 Personal Best- I put on the extra weight just so that I could feel it at arm's length, but I ended up giving it a shot, and although I didn't use a pause I was actually able to get this for a new PR!

    Cardio

    30 minutes on the reincumbant bike done this morning. Probably going to start walking on the treadmill again just so that I can maintain my cardio/endurance.

    Energy Level: Good energy level, can't complain there. 9/10

    Workout Rating: A, even though I was a little unhappy with not being able to get legitimate lifts I understand that there's still room for progress and that keeps me motivated, plus busting out a new PR is always nice.

    Post Workout Musings: Deadlifts tomorrow and then I'll know where I'm at with the "big three", still got around 4 weeks of prep so there's still some time. We've also decided to stage a "mini-meet" with some other guys who are doing their first meet, there's going to be some judges helping us out so that we're all ready for Provincials.

    Only 3 because I'm also using Ragnarok later in the day. I find that people take way too much creatine, I'm a firm beliver in the law of diminishing returns so taking more doesn't always mean more progress.

    Thanks Matt, check out the bench results from yesterday...I'll be doing the deads tonight, there's still room for progress over the next 4 weeks, I am also going to start experimenting with a squat/deadlift suit and a bench press shirt, so the max's might jump up a bit next time around.

    having..... trouble...... maintaining....... focus....... avatar.... is.... too...... powerful!!

    Thanks, I've been loving my Rag-Cord5-SXS pre-workout combo, it's been awesome! I've been energized big-time for all my workouts. I've also noticed a pretty decent stim effect with the Shred HC as well. I'm actually going to adjust it and take the SHC in the mornings with my Kreaceps and then take the SXS prior to my workouts. I'm feeling that I really don't need to take 3 servings of thermos a day right now as I'm really not trying to cut hard yet. I know what you mean though as the last few thermogenic/stim products I've tried (prior to the combos above) really haven't given me much (although Sub-Q by Fusion was pretty good).

    Well for the third day in a row I did a max-out last night. It was deadlift day and I really had high hopes of setting some new PR's.

    Deadlifts

    10@135
    10@225
    8@315
    5@405
    1@455
    1@495 - went up real easy.
    1@545 - FAIL - only 3 quarters way up
    1@545 - FAIL - by this one I was wiped out and had nothing, only half way up.

    Cardio

    30 minutes on the reincumbant bike and 15 minutes on the X-trainer done in the morning prior to work - gotta make sure that I stay in the right weight class for the meet at the end of the month!

    Energy Level: Energy was really good, but Deads are so exhaustive that by the end I was dying out quickly. 8.5/10

    Workout Rating: A, Although I'm happy with how easily 495 went up I think I made a mistake by going straight to 545, should've sent to 525 first. In actuality I had 2 50 pound plates on the bar and was also using a 50 pound bar so all the lifts above 315 are probably close to 15 pounds heavier, but without actually weighing each plate/bar I can't verify exact amounts

    Post Workout Musings: I have previously done up to 565 in deads but that was starting by pulling it off the rack, going down and actually using some momentum (almost bouncing it off the floor). For the meet it has to be lifted directly off the floor so I'm still working on that.

    NOTE: For my next Deadlift day I'll be doing "rack pulls" to work on my sticking point...... also on my next Bench assist day I'll be doing some board work (i.e. 2x4 running down the middle of my chest) to also work a sticking point. Finally over the next 2-3 weeks I will be trying out a squat/deadlift suit and a bench shirt...... so stick around as some PR's might be getting SMASHED!!!

    Congrats on the new job and the sick lifts

    Strong numbers on both the bench and deadlift especially raw. Once you are using a shirt and suit those numbers are going to climb instantly

    Just bought a new computer this weekend. HP, 3GB RAM, 500GB Hard Drive, and I did the upgrade to the 22" widescreen panel monitor. I'm a little pumped about it right now!

    Yeah, I got way more than I needed, but it was on sale so it was the best deal.... regardless, the way technology is going it was "outdated" before I even bought it.... lol!

    EXTRAS


    Although they weren't scheduled, I did a Bench assist workout on Friday and a Back Assist workout on Saturday. They both felt really good. I did some board presses on Friday rather than the close grip bench press and was able to do:

    10@135
    10@225
    10@315
    5@365
    3@405
    3@405
    5@365
    5@365

    All done with ample pause at the bottle and were all pressed to lockout without any assitance. So it's nice to see that I'm still making progress, the board presses should help out alot. As for back I didn't add in the rack pulls yet, they'll be done tonight for 10 sets of 3 at 90% of my max. Then next week I'll be back to full Deadlifts, I'm just trying to throw some extra's in to help me progress as my prep time is slowly dwindling away. Some guys were actually amazed that I was willing to do a meet with less than 2 months of actual powerlifting under my belt, but I'm of the opinion that you learn the most by doing, so I'm tossing my hat in the ring as soon as I can!

    Deadlift day


    I've moved Deads and Squats around to try and maximize my energy for the week, choose to do rack pulls today to work a little on my sticking point. There's really not enough time to really work on sticking points, etc, but I can still get a day or two in that might help me out a little.

    Rack Pulls

    10@135
    10@225
    8@315
    5@405

    3@495
    3@495
    3@495
    3@475
    3@475
    3@455
    3@455
    3@425
    3@425
    3@405

    Total weight lifted: 20,460lbs - nice!

    Cardio

    None, ~DD~ started her internships and has to get on the road pretty early so we don't have the time to get it done in the mornings. I figure the only time I'm going to have available for some cardio will be on my assist days and possibly the weekend so I'll be making a little bit of an adjustment.

    Energy Level: Energy was awesome, but I was definitely wiped out after the 10 sets. 9.5/10

    Workout Rating: A+, I love doing rack pulls, you can lift a tremendous amount of weight. 3 sets of 3 at 495 was really awesome, I almost wish I had more time to prepare so that I could really work hard on these and improve my full deadlifts.

    Post Workout Musings: The workout was plain awesome, it was hard but I was able to persevere. Hopefully, it'll help me a little with my sticking point as I really focused on exploding out of the hole.

    Macros:
    Calories: ~3000 kcal - although this many kcals really powers the workout, it almost feels like too much right now as I feel totally full throughout the day, probably will drop it back down to 2500

    Water intake: 7 litres

    Morning:
    1 Fish Oil
    1 Multi
    2 Shred-XS HC
    3 Kreaceps

    Pre-workout:
    2 Shred-XS
    1 scoop Ragnarok
    3 Cordygen5

    Deadlift Assist day

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Was late getting to the gym last night as ~DD~ had the car. I had to rush it alittle but still put together a decent deadlift assist day. However, my lower back is crazy sore so I took it relatively easy as well.

    V-Grip Pulldowns

    12@210
    10@230
    8@250

    Wide grip Cable Rows

    12@200
    10@220
    8@240

    Barbell Shrugs

    12@225
    12@315
    - didn't go any heavier due to back stiffness/soreness.
    - no "holds" either.

    Machine Preacher Curls - it was crazy I've actually been noticing alot of improvement in my arms since starting my powerlifting training, guess it's true that the old basics are always the best!!

    12@120
    10@130
    8@140

    DB Hammer Curls

    12ea@40
    10ea@45
    8ea@50

    Cardio - done after workout.

    I rushed the workout so I was able to get 25 mins in on the reincumbant bike, the workout and cardio took 50 minutes total.

    Energy Level: Energy wasn't a problem, even though it was later on in the evening, although I had some crazy heartburn during cardio. 8.5/10

    Workout Rating: B+, I'm satisfied with this workout because I think it's about the best I could have done under the circumstances, no problems with it at all.

    Post Workout Musings: Probably won't be able to work out tonight as my GF has the car again and I have to coach Spring hockey at 7:30 until 9:00, gym closes at 10, and the GF usually doesn't pick me up from work until around 5ish, maybe I can still get some lifting in just can't waste any time when I'm there...... we'll see....

    Macros:
    Calories: ~2500 kcal

    Water intake: 7.0 litres

    Morning:
    1 Fish Oil
    1 Multi
    2 Shred-XS Hardcore
    3 Kreaceps

    Afternoon:
    1 Fish Oil
    2 Shred-XS
    3 Cordygen5
    1 scoop Ragnarok

    Bench Day

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    So instead of moving my bench workout back a day I was able to get to the gym with enough time (although slightly rushing) to get it done. I don't want to push too many things back as next week I start a new job and you never know what kind of time you're going to have available.

    Bench Press

    10@135
    10@225
    5@315 -these felt really difficult - I didn't realize how much energy switching deadlifts and squats around would take out of my upper body.

    3@335
    3@335
    3@315
    3@315
    3@355
    3@335
    3@335
    3@355
    3@355
    3@335

    Total weight lifted: 15,285 - ouch... not good!

    Cardio

    I skated with the spring hockey team that I'm helping coach, it's not really good cardio but by the end I have a decent sweat on.

    Energy Level: Energy was okay, I was a little tired from the upper body/back work done over the last 2 dats. 7.5/10

    Workout Rating: B+, this one wasn't great by any means but I kept trying to push it hard, (see the "wave" style in my sets), so I was at least pushing it with all I had left.

    Post Workout Musings: I think my body just has to adjust to this split, maybe I should go back to doing squats first, but with roughly 3 weeks left before the meet I'm not going to worry about too much (I'll make a decision when I plan out my post-meet workout schedule). I'm sure the switch-up is keeping my body "guessing", so a little muscle confusion can't hurt.

    Macros:
    Calories: ~2500 kcals

    Water intake: 7 litres

    Morning:
    1 Fish Oil
    1 Multi

    Cardio

    Was late getting to the gym again due to "the better half" having the SUV, so no cardio was completed. Man, I gotta get back on track, not only to maintain my "wind" but also to ensure that I stay in the right weight class

    Energy Level: Energy was really top-notch. 9/10

    Workout Rating: A, the upper body got a real amazing pump and burn from this workout, my chest was already so pre-exhausted that the inclines, shoulder presses and dips were all extremely tough!

    Post Workout Musings: Time is getting short, but my workouts are going great, I'm starting to get a little excited/nervous for the meet, gotta send all the fees today and book my hotel......can't wait!!

    Looking great in here Steve. I really like your new split. I think once you adjust to it it will really pay off. Your numbers are looking really strong and you are going to do really well.

    Now we just have to get you a second car

    Deadlifts


    Been a little lazy on the updates for the last couple days.... I've continued to make some changes to my lifting schedule as the meet draws closer, I've wiped out the "Assist" days so that I can focus all my energry on working on my 3 main lifts (working with the suits as well), so I'll be doing the lifts on 3 consecutive days taking 1 day off and then repeating until it's meet time.

    Deadlifts

    10@135
    10@225
    8@315
    5@405

    3@455
    3@455
    1@495
    1@495
    1@515
    1@515 - fail, was wiped out.
    3@455
    3@455



    Cardio

    None.

    Energy Level: Energy was awesome, using the suit for the first time took alot out of me. 9.5/10

    Workout Rating: A, the workout felt really good, but I still need more practice with the suit.

    Post Workout Musings: Progress is continuing quite well.... not much longer

    Macros:
    Calories: ~2500
