  3. So I inreasedcals by about 300- all carbs. Picked up some glutamine/bcaa's mix from vitamin shoppe today. Ive never used either.. so im excited to see myself hopefully hold onto some muscle.


    Back:

    Deadlifts 135x10, 225x8, 315x8, 365x6, 315x8

    Lat pulldowns 160x10, 8, 140x10, 10

    Close grip pulldowns 120x9, 9, 9

    Shrugs 120'sx 10, 10 135 on smith x 12/12, 10/10

    Forearm curls check

    only 15 min cardio the gym was closing

    I was thinking about it during my workout tonight.. Im probably losing weight because of altered nutrient-insulin process with such clean eating. Im taking in about the same amount of calories I was before the diet.. just more protein and carbs instead of fat, and much cleaner with no cheat meals every three days. So even with the increase in calories I should continue to gradually lose weight.. the concept is that im gaining muscle and losing fat (recomping), therefore my BMR is increased requiring more calories for maintanence.

  6. Ill monitor weight again wednesday.. also i may increase my water intake atleast half a gallon. This creatine is causing me to hold subcutaneous water and that happens when there isnt enough water in cells.

    Im quite solid and lean around the waist in the am so im pretty sure its water and not fat.

    Water balance is crucial for looking lean. I hate it when I forget to bring my water to work or out with me and my body just bloats up

    Man drive around for work so i took my gallon jug with me but it got warm.. gotta invest in a small cooler lol

    And for some reason my tap water has tasted like dirt the past few days.. im on the east coast so maybe the hurricane had something to do with it.

  10. I'm in bro. Workouts look solid. When was the pic taken at the contest in relation to the first pics posted?

  11. Sorry for the delay to the few of you who are following lol... school and work.. ugh!

    Day 16

    Weighed in at 204.5 wednesday morning right after rolling out of bed. Thats 1 pound down from sunday so I increased carbs to 1/2 cup of oats for meals 1, 2, and 3.

    Im not real sure if I can actually grow and lean up at the same time without gear. Pulcinella accomplished it but he was running some stuff 20 weeks out from his show.

    Im wondering if I should simply try and keep weigh loss to 2 pounds or less each week instead of attempting to stay around my starting weight (209). I look like i may be getting leaner in the mirror and my strength isnt diminishing noticeably.. great pumps and look big with some veins popping in the gym. Theres one vein in my right bicep i use to kinda monitor bf%.. it dissapears when I go over 13 or so percent. Its barely visible now.

    Any suggestions?? Ill probably try and keep my starting weight to make the results seem valid. If im leaner at the end with same bodyweight, it will be a success.

    Tonight was arms, nothing spectacular. Was closegripping 245 for 6-8. Had a nice pump and threw in some FST's at the end.

    Good to have you bro. Good question, that was this past April. I wasnt conditioned at all.. got 4th. I was the biggest guy there at about 5'9, 218. I really wanna shred but its like im an endo around the waist lol. Hopefully this extremely clean eating will do the trick

  14. So what's the overall goal man? Are you wanting more to shred down or gain.. i feel like you are conflicted?? But i would say if you weigh the same w/ lower % at the end that's def a success... and u would have gained muscle and lost fat. Are u taking anythig otc to help hormone wise? even a natty test boost could help

  15. Look good in your contest pic, however; I think you needed 6 more weeks of dieting. I am sub'd Bezoe

    No hormones. Just BCAA's, glutamine, creatine, fish oil , and multi. I guess my goal is to recomp. Im gonna follow his regimine.. he stated "grow into a show". He meant that the leaner you get and more you grow, the more clean calories you can take in. He said he started at 2500 cals and 20 weeks later right before the show he was 5000+ cals.

  17. Day 17

    Ran out of ****ing eggs last night so didnt get any this morning. Everything else diet wise on point. Up to 1.5 gallons h2o.

    Back:
    Pull ups- bodyweight x 10, 8, 8
    DB rows- 120's x 10/10, 10/10, 10/10
    Iso lat pulls- 2 plates +25x 10 , 10
    Seated Rows- 150x10, 10
    Shrugs- 120'sx10, 10... smith machine 135x12/12, 12/12 (these i stand with my side to the bar and shrug each shoulder isolaterally)
    Calves check

    Felt pretty good.. its cold as the arctic in my gym, hardly even break a sweat i hate that ****. Athletes like to be warm when they train lol

    Oh and a side note.. im one belt hole down. Not sure what my weight is I may check that tmrow instead of sunday so I can adjust accordingly

  20. Day 18

    Man im craving a large pepperoni pizza and cinammon sticks lol.. gotta stay focused.

    203.8 this morning.. **** **** ****

    I keep increasing cals and keep losing weight. Its been a LONG time since I ate this clean consistently. Even when I dieted for the show i was getting about 2 cheat meals a week.

    One thing I am concerned about is the lack of good fats in this diet and their numerous functions in the body- inluding TEST PRODUCTION. Pulcinella was definetely using plenty of gear during this diet.. but for me, without gear, its gonna be hard to keep strength up without adequate fat intake. I can only rely on endogenous test.. thats makes me worry. I wonder how much a few teaspoons of EVOO would affect the results?

    Because my weight was down again, ive added cals again. Another 1/2 cup oats added to meal 4 and 2 whole eggs thrown into the PWO shake.

    Chest tonight:
    Incline DB press 100'sx10, 110'sx8, 100'sx8, 8
    Iso press 2 plates x 10, 8, 8
    DB pullovers 105x10, 8,8
    Incline flys 45'sx10, 70'sx5, 50'sx7 (tried the 70's because last time i did flys i was up around 70's-80 pound dumbbells.. havent done flys in awhile and I weigh alot less now)

    I felt weaker tonight.. indicates a loss of muscle and i can feel it. Im really debating adding some fat..

    Ill have some pics up tmrow

  21. Craziness with adding more and losing more! Two things that I would like to comment on; one being that two cheat meals a week during a show diet is a "bad idea" Another thing is that just because your losing strength doesn't mean your "losing muscle." Strength is more than just having muscle, there's neural adaptations dealing with recruiting more motor units to perform the designated stressors to the muscle your targeting. Also I am positive you know that some days are better than others, just keep on doing what your doing and see how things go. Don't let one day get ya down bro. Train your mind so that your body will follow. It's all about strength of mind, little mishaps take as they are and steam roll over them. Keep on going I am keepin up with this thread

    Actually strength and muscle are very closely related. Loss of muscle mass means a loss of muscle fibers able to be recruited through motor units. Motor unit is the nerve cell body and the fibers it innervates. No fibers to innervate means less neurons firing, which will elicit a weaker muscle contraction. A neuron either fires or it doesn't- all or none principle. Nevertheless, you are right about other factors affecting strength, but IME I can tell that my body is getting weaker. Usually happens in pressing movements first. Ive had to decrease weight during legs also. I just dont wanna diminish too much.

    And next time there will be no pizza and cinammon sticks during contest prep.. the gf was a bad influence but shes history

    So my plan is to increase fats through whole eggs. Pulcinella considers this one of the exceptions
