    Still wish more definition was coming in.. don't know what I can do.. skin won't tighten up around waist anymore..

  14. Its definetely a process trying to get the fat to melt off man. You just have to keep pushing and working towards the goal.

  17. fasted cardio morning

    15 mins treadmill spd 3.0 incline 3.0

    25 mins escalator stepmill

    So.. I don't know how much true fat I have left around my stomach, it's a lot of skin around my stretchmarks.. which I have a lot of.. I forgot to mention I used to weigh 325 pounds a few years ago.. size 52 waist.

    Also waking up this morning I noticed my right peck lost a little more fat below the nipple.. and instead of tightening up closer to the muscle, I now have a crease like on my left side.. loose skin really sucks.

  18. Workout 3/31/11

    let me preface this by saying I got pissed off at how ****ing weak I am.. and didn't have that great of a mood.

    WU 10 min stepper HR 135

    Deadlifts: WU 95 x 10r x 2s, 135 x 10
    145 x 10r x 3s

    I stopped there, my lower back was hurting and didn't want it to hurt so much I couldn't do the rest of my workouts.. and it did anyway.

    Wide grip upright rows: WU bar x 10 x 2s,
    95 x 10r x 4s

    Power shrugs: WU 95 x 10 x 2
    135 x 10, 225 x 10 (grip gave out) 135 x 10

    Precor free elliptical 28 mins, lvl 7 and 12 intensity, 4 min intervals
    HR 145-150

  19. lower back strains suck.somehow yesterday I tweaked my left side of my neck and upper back just stretching to the right.**** hurt every time I turned to the right for like 6 I gotta be getting old or something.

    I hope it heals soon bro.back stuff makes life suck.

  20. I don't know if it's more of a pump or pain, but it literally disables me if I push it too hard. I'm a tall guy, and deadlifts are a big motion.. and i'll be the first to admit, my back isn't my strong point especially lower.. it's something I definitely am working on..

    Wish I lived closer to my chiro.. only 30 bucks a visit and he's good. No one up here is near that cheap without insurance.. but I swear by em.. regardless what others say.. I wouldn't be able to do any of these workouts today without it... had serious football injury that regular docs said I wouldn't be able to do much for the rest of my life.. messed up knee/hips/back.. few years of chiro and I was back at it.

  21. Workout 4/1/11
    Weight 232

    WU 10 min stepper HR 135

    185 x 10r x 3s, 135 x 8.

    20 mins treadmill, 3.0 spd, 3.0 incline. HR 140

    man deadlifts are killing my lower back.. but I can tell the difference in how it looks.. needs to keep getting stronger.. i hate being so damn tall.

  22. Today did some fasted cardio on the elliptical

    30 mins, lvl 8 intensity, HR 150..

    I also experimented with some ways to cut water weight (only last night) and when i woke up I weighed 228 vs 232 the night before.. not too shabby for just one night. Will be fun to do a few days of contest prep.. I'm a total newbie so hopefully I don't look like crap.

  23. LOL, a few days of contest prep? Dude, it's been 12 weeks of contest prep!!!

    Keep working those deadlifts, they'll pay dividends, just make sure form is spotless!
