  3. i always feel good after some tennis.



    this might be the last pic you guys see of me as a 40y/o..birthday is in a week, and gaining has slowed a bit, still ~ 192.6
    so i doubt i'll hit 195 before i turn 41.
    still amazed i'm eating as much as i am and seeing the weight gain slow tbh..my Pp run has pumped new life into this old body, gotten me back on track.
    (tennis was straight sets win btw, 7-5 and 6-3)

  4. breakfast
    5oz turkey breast
    1 slice ez cr toasted w/ butter
    1 whole egg/2 whites
    1 cup grape nuts flakes
    1 cup almond/coconut milk
    large banana
    ~625cals



    training:
    hip thrusters, RDLs, bi/tri supersets, mixed in ab work.
    warmup/cooldown cardio.
    was supposed to be an off day, but i may not be able to train for next 2 days so got it in while i could.
    feeling good - esp after tennis yesterday.

    postWO nutrition:
    1 bagel (no butter)
    1 TBS honey
    30g isolate
    6oz Mountain Dew

    the dew just sounded good today.

  5. I have been doing hip thrusters for a couple months now with some nice returns. It really activates the glutes and upper hamstrings.

    Ya one of my go to exercises when trying to get some serious glute activation. Really helps people learn to fire the glutes.

  7. i don't do them enough.
    tend to get lazy and run RDLs and leg curls majority of time, with the occasional GHRs thrown in.
    need to get some more variance here.

  8. Yah I have been using Almond milk for my shakes recently ....man.. oh which reminds me if you want Protein pudding here is a very simple recipe that will take as little as 30 minutes...

    1 cup of almond milk, 2 scoops of myofusion shake and refridgerate for 30 minutes or longer if you like... fuggin pudding and it's fuggin good!!

  9. i used to make protein pudding yrs ago, back when Beverly still made Ultra Size protein..
    once you have that as a pudding, nothing else really ever compares.
    i miss that stuff.
    have used myo in there before tho, not bad.
    muscle milk is pretty tasty too.
    love the almond milk! and this new combo almond/coconut that just came out, groovin on it..bout time somebody thought of that.

  10. haven't shown a dinner plate for awhile, thought this was a good time.
    bustin out some variety tonight..baked red potato on the side, salad too of course.
    main course:
    5oz turkey breast
    4oz laura's lean 92% beef
    1.5oz chicken breast chunks



    and, i stocked up on a few snacks, one shelf of my pantry..


  11. all right..time to take this thing to the next level.

    dietary consumption will be increased gradually now, macros/micros get a bit cleaner for awhile..the goal is to get to 5k cals -- and potentially hit 195 by my birthday.

    started this upward movement yesterday actually, hitting 4250cals on a non-tennis playing day.

    eating this many cals will require a slight sacrifice in chosen foods, to ensure no accompanying fat gain..

    workouts will also take on a slightly different structure, as i constantly evolve.

  12. In for epicness to come. That is a lot of food, bet things are about to get crazy.

  13. crazy indeed.


    update shots after a beast of a caloric excess last night..i broke 195 with a quickness, and with a lb to spare.




    how much i'll retain after normal caloric threshhold is up in the air, but i sure seemed to have sucked it up decently o/n.

  14. 5k in clean food. You are a machine.
    Just inject.

  16. That is a ton of calories...makes me feel puny with my nice and slow gaining on 3500+.

    But I guess that is because you dwarf me! At least you cook up some interesting looking food, so many people think eating clean means boring as hell meals.

  17. Yah I think Steve has a pretty quick metabolism ... but his attention to detail is stellar. That's why I am going to pick his brain on my next prep... that or hire him as my cook

    is a sh!tload of cals for sure.
    harder than you think to eat clean and get those cals in...
    weight gain is going well over the last week, i've broken the 200# mark after a sloppy day or two of consumption - which shows me all the more that when dealing with this amount of cals, gotta keep 'em super clean if i wanna stay lean.

  20. Could not agree more here. I got a little sloppy as well and started looking like crap. Time to clean things back up. I also found some Blue Diamond Honey Dijon flavored almonds!! Got real sloppy with these. Lmao

    it was my birthday week AZ, so a few festivities were had.
    last night i went to that hibachi grill buffet again, hit up all the same things i ate last time except think i had ny strip steak this time too..was delish!

    really wanted to try and get out to chicago and hit up a training session with bluerocket - i was at a casino that was only ~45min away from chitown - but it just dint work out.

    training is going decently..got some tennis on tap this afternoon..be interesting to see how i feel/move with these added extra lbs.

    I also found some Blue Diamond Honey Dijon flavored almonds!! Got real sloppy with these. Lmao
    ahaa, yup easy to do.

  22. Well, a belated Happy Birthday youngster! Glad you were out celebrating. The extra pounds definitely affect quick sports like tennis. My son played basketball for his highschool weighing about 180lbs. He is now over 200lbs and he says it just hurts to move that much weight around.

    I was 140-160 in high school...now about to be 25 weighing 220 (with fat :/) and I agree with your son!

    so sore i had to take sunday off from training.
    (and i lost both sets to boot)

  30. I am due for a break, and will take a week cuz I have been going hard for too long... I am not heavier but just not feeling the power...

  31. and i am due for some shufling of the macros.
    blew past 200# (204 to be exact), time to get pre-emptive and shape the duration of my dietary course now..
    will look something like this:

    1st 4 weeks: gain phase
    week 5: hardening week
    weeks 6-8: gain phase
    week 9: hardening phase
    weeks 10-11: 2-week gaining
    week 12: same as week #9

  32. Looks like your body likes what it's being treated to.

  34. dinner last night.



    5oz ground sirloin
    2oz steak strips
    10oz sweet potato
    2 cups veggies

    gonna love my new dietary script..won't be as much variety, but i don't need variety right now lol.

    i'll break it all down in my next entry, stay tuned.

    lil update pic of 200+lb snags these days.


  35. dietary guidelines look a lil like this for now:

    meal #1: 3 whole eggs, 5oz lean beef, 1/2 cup oats

    meal #2: protein drink w/ healthy fats

    meal #3: 8oz chicken breast (or other lean protein source); 3/4 cup cooked brown rice (or other complex carb source); 2 cups veggies

    meal #4: 2 cans tuna or 8oz turkey breast, 1/2 cup cottage cheese, 1/2 cup unsweetened pineapple
    (option B - protein drink w/ healthy fats)

    meal #5: 8oz steak/beef/fish or other lean protein, 8oz baked red or sweet potato, salad

    meal #6: protein drink w/ healthy fats


    training days only:
    30min preWO, a ~260cal shake (~45g carbs/20g protein)
    immediately postWO, a ~415cal shake (same as above + 25g isolate)
    eat 60min following postWO shake

  36. Looking solid and the food looks good. Planning seems solid too.

    Planning on adding my own food pics to my log when i do make something tasty.

  37. Like the plan

  38. thanks fellaz.
    one last bit got lost in the shuffle somehow lol..
    continuing the theme of 'change', i shifted training parameters today as well.
    switched up routines and stepped outside of my own program designs for a rarity to run something diffrent, a blast from the past.
    some of you may know this program.

    day #1 of a 60 or 90 day plan (haven't decided yet)
    chest/biceps, 12 sets x 4 reps
    A1) 30-degree incline DB bench press
    A2) inclined DB bicep curl

    was good session, needed something to break me out of the rut from 'traditional' training, this was something i haven't done in like 3yrs..... there's enough built-in change within this program that i could run it if desired for the 90 days, we'll see how it goes.
    felt pretty damn strong this morning.

  39. day #2
    legs/calves, 5x5
    A1) narrow-stance squat
    A2) calf press
    B) deadlift

    nice session this morning, dietary choices are flowing well..conditioning improving should be much improved within a week.

  40. a small substitution on breakfast this morning.
    3 whole eggs, 2oz sliced cheese
    bagel, no butter
    grapefruit
    ~590cals



    and then, time to re-up on a few supps, protein mostly.
    i'm not a GN guy by any means, but i got a hella deal on these and the protein is certainly useable.



    haven't had any super pump in like forever, thought i'd give it a run.
