I also had my regular meal, very delicious today, I mixed it up this though, I usually just crack my egg whites and throw them on the pan with a 1/2 tbs of olive oil and then after cook my onions in 1/2 coco oil. This time I put all my egg whites and onions in a bowl and added the olive oil and about a tsp of garlic powder and cooked it on the coco oil. It was amazing, it got me extra motivated. I spent some time prepping myself up before heading to the gym by reading the latest MD Magazine. I also did something different during training. First of all I decided to take my ENDURANCE while training. I put 2 scoops in my gallon jug and off to the games! At the start of the workout I was doing well, going heavy of course but then too heavy. Luckily I responded by lowering the weight to the point where I could still go heavy enough for a full contraction and stretch for 6-8 reps. I was doing that earlier when it was super heavy, but my form was crap, and the weight was controlling me, it should and always should be yourself controlling the weight. ENDURANCE keep me focused and energized throughout the session. Within about 90mins my workout was finished. I've never seen a fireman in full uniform at the gym before, but after I did my standing calf raises on the SM some guy who hopped on after I finished using it dropped a 45 on his foot and burst open. I wont go into detail lol but you can imagine what they had to clean up. I also did some shopping today, got me some workout books/ bodyfat caliper, and measuring tape. This Sunday I'll post some pics. But here are my stats/ workouts/ meals:
    BF: ~7.5%
    Waist: 32
    Chest: ~40
    Arms: 15 (I want these SOB's bigger lol)
    Neck: 15
    Legs: 24
    Calves: ~17

    Meals:
    1. 12 egg whites, 1 1/2c oats, 1 green tea.
    2. 2 Tbs almond butter.
    3. 8oz tilapia, 1/2c brown rice, 1 1/2c broccoli.
    4. 5oz tilapia, 1/2c brown rice, 1 1/1c broccoli.
    5. 5oz chicken breast, 1 1/2c broccoli.
    6. 5oz chicken breast, 2c broccoli.

    Back workout:
    Wide Grip Chins 4x8-10
    BO Rows OH Grip 4x6-8
    T-bar Rows 5x6-8
    1 Arm Rows 4x6-8
    Rev. Lat Pulldown 4x6-8
    -Superset-
    Rope Straight Pulldown 4x6-8
    Iso Hammer Low Row 4x6-8

    Calves:
    Standing SM Raise 5x15-25
    Seated Raise 5x15-25
    Tibia 5x15-25

    I realized after last night of being a bit discouraged that nothing else matters to me but this all of this. Bodybuilding. I'm sacrificing some of the things I used to like to get to the level I want to be. In the end to me it will be perfect. Final note, I've been thinking about after this comp to not compete for a while, I made and "after show" goal to take about 4-6yr layoff from competing to pack on the size. I did some math and thinking from 2013-2017 Bulk naturally in 2017 I'll be 23, and that's when I believe I would start cycling. And somewhere between 2018-2020 begin to compete in the NPC and begin my journey and life goal to become a pro. This is a dream, my dream, and will give it my hardest to fulfill my destiny and reach where I want to go.
    Good attitude Aggie. Eyes on the prize!

  2. Quick question? With my diet being around 2250 cals and 15 weeks out from Saturday, do you think I'll come too flat due to over dieting?

  3. your legs are definitely your strong point so far, just need to add some definition on them probably a few more high reps on the leg extension machine and bulk up some mass on your biceps and triceps. not too bad for a start though

    What kind of deficit are you at now? I mean you're always guaranteed to lose size on a cut, but by making sure your calorie deficit isn't too extreme and by giving your body calories at a maintenance level or a slight surplus once or twice a week you can minimize muscle loss. Then before your contest you'll want to deplete your water levels and then carb up to refill glycogen and plump your muscles back up.

    As Far as deficit the diet i've been posting lately is my current set up. A few weeks ago is was nothing but sweet potatoes for carbs now complex carbs are down and i'm eating more veggies.

    Thanks man, my arm workout is 6-8 rep range right now(just switched it last week).

  7. What are your opinions on Kris Gethin's 12 week hardcore trainer for cutting?

  8. Sorry for no recent updates fellas. I've been working throughout the weekend. Monday I'll will update everything over the days I didn't log. You'll all be impressed by the new pics. Natural EFX is making me lean! Stay tuned. Happy holidays to you all!

  9. Update a bit late but here we go. Over the past few days I've been gone from the gym. It has sucked but I've been tending a minor injury from the weekend. I was squatting last weekend, and during my 3rd set I had this pulsing pain in my upper traps. My lower back also was flaring up from stiff deads. I had to call it a night. I was upset but I accepted the failure. I reevaluated my program during the 3 days off. My diet is still the same I didn't cheat at all this holiday. I was strong and still highly dedicated and motivated. I switched to one of my old routines that did a lot for me. Today I lifted legs and killed it. I still have the rest of the day for my meals. Other than that everything's been on par. Tonight I'll post my meals, and workout. LEAN EFX! I love this stuff still to this day. I'm buying another bottle asap. I'm really looking good and I believe its gonna take me to the top spot. FORMUTECH is legitimately my staple for this prep.
    Stay tuned!
    Here's a recent pic. No one was able to take pics so I had too. My bad. Next time I'll have better pics.

Oh well, I'll be back on track in no time at all. But you, my friend, have some kind of will power and drive. Can't wait to see you place 1st in your contest!

  17. Update for Dec. 28. Going back to my old split has been working very well lately, I did back today, and noticed I still have my strength in the exercises I did. Day by day I feel leaner and look it as well. I've been working on my posing after my workouts for about 5-15mins each time. Everything is looking pretty defined and proportionate. Tomorrow I'll be 14 weeks out and I know for a fact i'm on right road for the victory. My diet and I are still getting along very well, No Binges! Holidays were a big test of my will and I didn't touch a single thing, but my own pre-made meals. I stay strong, and kept going. That's what I'm doing throughout this prep. I believe that in the next couple weeks with the scheduled changes to my diet is going to put me even higher than the others compared to what I thought earlier. I'm winning this thing. I'm not letting anything stop me, I'm gonna go out and get what's mine. It's GAME TIME.
    Here's my log for my meals/ workouts I've done past days/ week. Sorry I haven't been logging sooner, just been working alot making money for this prep, this next check i'll have some money to save up for my IAFS- (International Association of Fitness Sciences) training certification and also start saving up for my bulking phase after this contest.

    I am SO glad I don't like any of that stuff. I have slowly moved from liking very few sweets to basically liking none. There are only a handful that I would even think of eating. Great problem to have. LOL.

    Kudos for staying on track during the holidays. I dieted once during thanksgiving and Christmas and it was hard, but not nearly as bad as one would think.
