    Sleep aid, hardly, lol. I am super-pumped about this weekend, however I am so tired by the end of the day I literally feel like passing out just walking up the stairs of the house.

    Needless to say, once my head hits the pillow I am out in minutes.

  6. Good luck , cant wait to see pics and hear how you did!

  7. Thanks for all of the support everyone!

    1 Day Out

    As far as eats go, I had 30g of carbs at breakfast and will begin my carbup at 5:30, eating ~10-20g Pro and ~30-40g CHO every two hours up until bedtime (I will probably get 4-5 of these meals in).


    I'll be heading over to Grand Valley to meet up with a couple of my buddies and will be staying in their apartment over night and heading to the contest venue with them Saturday morning.

    This will most likely be my last post until either Saturday night or Sunday afternoon.

    :bb:

  8. Results:

    I ended up placing 2nd in the Open Men's Tall class. There was some tough competition that showed up. The winner of my class was a late-30's early 40-'s year old. Personally, I think I may have been slightly leaner than he was, but he definitely had more mass overall and surely more muscle maturity. I'd happy with the 2nd place finish, edging out some of the other competitors that I placed higher against in my class.

    The overall winner had an amazing physique. He's a member of the Chicago Police Department and was just built like a rock. Being only 27 years old, seeing him has giving me a goal of what type of physique I hope to achieve in the next 5-6 years.


    And finally... everyone together now, "second verse, same as the first..."

    I will now be continuing my prep for the upcoming show on May 31. Sunday I did 45 minutes of cardio while eating roughly 300g protein, 125g CHO, and 50g fat. Today it will be back to hitting the weights.

  9. Congrats on the 2nd place finish!! Did you get pics from the show?

  10. Good Job Brother! I'm sure there were a lot of people there and the competition was tight...silver is certainly never anything to be ashamed of. Congratulations!

  11. Congrats Matt! Second place is always terrific unless it's a fight to the death

    Keep up the great work, perhaps first place is only two weeks away

  12. congrats, brotha! second place is a great achievement! that guy had plenty of years of training on you - imagine how much more size you could have in that amount of time! a lot of people say bb'ers are in their prime at around age 35, so you have a while to go. keep it up, man, and you'll have that gold in no time!

    Thanks a bunch!

    I'm waiting for a buddy of mine to get the pictures uploaded from his camera. He's been busy with work all week and sadly he was the only person who took pictures for me at the contest.

  16. 10 Days Out (Wednesday)

    Protein ~275g
    Carbs ~300g
    Fat ~45g

    Worked legs and did 20 minutes on the stair-stepper post workout. Went back later in the evening and did 30 minutes of walking on the treadmill.

    Overall it felt good to increase my carb intake for the day. The leg workout went alright except I managed to tweek my back a bit on the Hack Squat machine (of all things) on just my 2nd working set. I felt as though my form wasn't an issue, as I definitely was not going near as heavy as what I have before. My back was pretty stiff for the rest of the workout so I just took it (pretty) light, sticking around the 12-15 rep range for the rest of the workout. Today (Friday) it feels MUCH better, however I will be taking it easy on any lower-back work coming up, whch really shouldn't be an issue anyway leading up to the competition as I will be doing depletion workouts all throughout next week.


    9 Days Out (Thursday)

    Protein ~300g
    Carbs ~180g
    Fat ~50g

    Hit Chest and Arms. My back felt stiff at the beginning of the workout, but after about 20 minutes into it I didn't even notice it. Followed the workout with 40 minutes of walking on the treadmill.


    8 Days Out (Back on track!)

    Macros similar to Thursday

    Focused on my back today followed by a few sets for shoulders. I focused more on form, really trying to "squeeze" out each rep. I also did more pull-down type of exercises taking much of the strain off of my lower back in an attempt to not aggrivate it once again, however I did do a few sets of chest-supported rows which didn't bother my back at all.

    I followed up the workout with 30 minutes on the treadmill.

  17. Sorry all for not updating this as regularly as before. Things got very hectic the week before the competition, BUT I am happy to say that I finished 1st in the Open Men's Medium division in the OCB Circle City Championships yesterday!!!!

    I lost in the overall to a couple of great competitiors, both of whom actually have their pro cards in different organizations, making it a real treat to be in a posedown with such high caliber athletes!

    Pictures taken by the photographer on hand will be up i 24 hours, so Iwill be sure to post a link to some of the pictures once I find them!

    I just wanted to say thanks to everyone, as well as Matt and MST, for all of your support!

    Congrats! You looked great. How tall are ya?

  21. ~6'0

    Surprisingly I was placed in the medium class as opposed to the tall class. However, I think the shortest person in the tall class was ~6'1 or 6'2, and really, most of us in the medium class were all very close in height.

  22. wow congrats bro...you look ripped up in those pics...great work!!

    Just curious. I am 6'4 so wasn't sure how they decided on divy you guys up.

  24. Figured I would post a quick update.

    I was originally going to do another bodybuilding competition on June 7 in Noblesville, IN. However, this show ended up being postponed until September.

    As a result, I am now preparing for one more competition that is being held in Ann Arbor, MI on June 28. Right now I am just under 3 weeks out, pretty much trying to just maintain the conditioning I brought to the May 31 Circle City Championships.

    Not to mention, I have also just started an Internship with Walgreens and have put in over 40+ hours of work this week. So I'm afraid that is the reason I have not posted quite a regularly as I had been. I will try to update this on a more frequent basis as the competition day comes closer.

  25. good luck on maintaining...as well as the internship! Keep us updated brother.

  26. Awesome on the internship!!! And good luck on the next contest!

  27. Less than 2 weeks out. I'm still alive, although most likely unplesant to be around due to being hungry and tired.

    However, I have never been so determined to come in as sharp as can be. I'm pumped!

  28. Im sure you'll do great man!

  29. Let the countdown begin!

    1 week out.

  30. kick some ass, brotha! what's the internship w/walgreen for, if ya don't mind me asking?
