    in other news: 210 this morning!


  2. Three weeks ago, on the phone, you were roughly 177 if I remember correctly. 210 now? Holy Christ.

    ooooo a para sighting!

    it's called two very opposite extremes of the scale, broham&cheese
    neither is truly representative of weight I will carry "normally" -- altho, 210 is A LOT closer to what norm will soon be, surely

  4. Remember that time you moved 33lbs in 3 wks?

    LOL
    well when you put it like that it does sound kinda silly, doesn't it?
    do I hear 44# in 4 weeks? mmmm that may be pushing things, but I think 37-39# in that timeframe is eminently doable

    thanks drew
    hopefully I don't start feeling immobile as hell - that's what has always curtailed my bulks in past times, just haven't felt good when I reach 210-215 range, too bulky and inflexible
    so far, so good on that aspect, tho belly feels pretty damn full all the time



    quick notation of protocol change:
    so I moved my glycomaize+isolate shake back to 1/2hr preWO, and moved the BCAA+SAA to intraWO
    not only does this make intuitive sense, I knew that when the preWO shake started getting larger it would mess with my training -- if I eat too close to training, stomach doesn't feel right, even wms or such other carb or even larger amount of isolate -- small glycomaize+isolate was okay but any bigger I would start disliking it
    anyway, this works much better in all aspects, am glad I made the switch

    I like to eat about an hour pre workout. Not full when I go and by the time I'm done, get home and finish my bcaa it's time for my next scheduled meal.

    yeah my protocol changes based on my bodycomp goals, sure..
    for now, looks like this:

    preWO meal is completed ~120min prior to start of training
    preWO glycomaize/isolate shake comes 90min later (so ~30min prior to training) along w/ MaxPump
    immediately upon starting training: begin consuming BCAA+SAA, sip thruout first 20-25min of session
    immediately end of training: postWO shake (rice krispy treat+2 rice cakes+2 TBS brown rice syrup+30g isolate)+CreaTrona (4g)
    ~35min following completion of shake: consume postWO meal

    I really like this set-up, for bulking times

    I was curious how you will find your tennis game on the weekend after this major shift..

    I find it quite amazing how you are able to manipulate things perfectly to achieve your goals to a tee... impressive my friend.

    will be interesting, i'm sure

    thanks my man
    experimentation thruout the yrs has been fun, and edifying

  12. It seems I like to eat and immediately drive to the gym. Then I take my time with prehab / foam rolling/ warmup and chat a few with friends (before I start, never during).

    Drink my pre somewhere in there.. Otherwise i'm too hungry at the gym to concentrate.

  13. isn't it interesting how we all have our preferences
    I developed my main preference (90-120min eating prior to workout) over the yrs simply due to overall wish to maintain lean composition, fueled by my belief of training with more empty stomach than full therefore ability to burn more bodyfat within the training session itself ... had the added benefit of finding I felt better, when on more empty/digested stomach than with fuller belly due to eating closer to session -- I mean it's not like I feel sick with full belly or anything (like some guys do), just sluggish and less energy

    I have also never been big into the "designer carb" options, always prefer whole foods, but I do have to say I am enjoying this glycomaize a lot

  14. a little more traditional snagalicious meal



    5oz steak
    1/4c basmati rice
    orange & red grilled peppers
    beans
    2 servings brown rice triscuits+1 serving tomato & basil popped! rice cakes
    not pictured: 1 scoop isolate
    910cals, 25g fat (most fat in a meal I've had for awhile)

    friggin meal was tasty as hell

  15. Gotta say snags the best thing about your log ( besides the volume of information ) is your food porn.

    cool luke, glad you are enjoying


    so my son stayed with me last night - he hadn't seen me in 2 weeks, tho we been talking and I've updated him on my progress..
    soon as I took my shirt off later in the day, he was like "whoaa dad! I could tell you were bigger when I first saw you, but now without your shirt on I can see what you mean about what that added weight would do for you! you're huge!" LOL

    he snapped couple pics before we went out and played tennis early this afternoon - really pleased with the shape of the back, looking pretty solid back there...legs are coming along well too (tho it's tougher to see the progress here), beefier, still veiny, and stronger! I mean I just been pounding iron in during training, been strong everywhere but leg strength has really shined bright





    lookin forward to mauling the chesticles tomorrow, been thinking about it ever since I sucked at tennis today
    can def feel the added weight (~10# above normal playing weight currently), i'm just getting too big to maneuver and have the flexibility I once had, I mean I don't feel too inflexible or anything but reaction time seems to have slowed a millisecond, and that is all it takes to mess me up...so, ima have to recalculate my moves out there, work on getting better foot/court position to make up for my dimming speed

    that may help a bit with overall flexibility, but I don't think it will improve my reaction time/movement any....it's all a matter of carrying the extra weight, and adjusting accordingly
    been there before - but instead of backing off because I don't feel athletically comfortable, I will see it thru all the way this time, tennis (or anything else) be damned
    eye on one prize at a time LOL

  19. now THIS is a wrap





    thing was so big I couldn't even roll it right, shoulda just used two tortillas and layered one on top

    stuffed with 5oz steak+4oz rotisserie chicken deli slices+pepperjack cheese+bbq sauce mix+peppers
    garnished with 1/2c basmati rice
    salad/dressing/croutons/peppers and 3 pineapple slices (ate two of them finishing up cooking)
    put this meal ~1040cals

  20. Looking huge man.. Dinner looks tasty as hell too. I know I don't have to say this but be careful you don't pull something playing tennis. That is the problem with slowing down and still trying to make a play (stretching way out to return the ball)...

    Yes, I remember you saying in earlier logs that your athleticism decreases after 200+ lbs BW. Been following and wondering why you're moving up to this high weight competition in sacrifice for tennis speed and agility. Curious, When you get your pro card, as "super large Snags", will you maintain or drop weight to favor athletics? Do you have a long term goal?
    May I suggest using this app to track your bloodwork tests:

    great point my friend, very true - thanks

    mmm 200 is my normal carrying weight (195-200 range); it's actually 210-215 where my athleticism suffers -- which is where I am at right now

    the end goal is to add muscle and overall size, and win a pro card; all else (athletic-wise) is secondary to that..where I go from there is TBD but I think this sport may be my future -- much as I love tennis, it certainly holds no future for me

  23. Understand. With this new resolve of yours, you are going to be huge. Fellows competitors, move out of the way because something large comes your way! Good lifting and we all know you can do this hands down Snags!

    yeah -- my meals

    so today, plan is to take cals to 6000-6100 (prolly on the higher side), carbs should be 825-875ish, protein ~425, fats 120ish/125 tops
    guys who follow me know I typically like to have breakfast & dinner be my two largest meals of the day, breakfast because it also doubles as my preWO meal; and dinner just because it's my last true food feeding of the day and I follow with only shake until sleep, plus it just makes intellectual sense to have a large dinner....the breakfast being large due to doubling as preWO meal is not so important when i'm consuming preWO shake of wms+isolate, but still something I like to structure in a certain way

    so - I figured i'd put a nice chunk of the extra cals at breakfast...
    that said: breakfast went above & beyond this morning, came in ~1220cals, 165g carbs mammoth
    featured such good things as 5oz steak, 1/2c steel-cut oats, serving oatmeal squares cereal, 1c almond milk, 1c raspberries, slice of pineapple, scoop of whey -- and a pop-tart ahahaaa

  25. absolutely fantastic training session this day - it was pretty intense

    I guess I should touch a bit on training parameters, so let me regress.. first, let me say that - after a stim break - I brought back a preWO energy matrix this day...Stimul8 baby, and boy oh boy was I stimulated LOL..feelsgoodman

    so was chesticles and abs; i'm keeping things very basic, not many tricks but intelligent maneuvers where I see fit...set tempos have been slowed, yet still explosive (but controlled!) in the concentric portion of the lift, tension on the muscle thruout entire movement....rest periods ~2min most of the time, tho I may take 2.5min or even 3min on legs some days
    format today was like so:

    4x weighted decline sit-ups
    2x flat crunches, non-weighted, max reps

    incline DB
    5x12/10/8/8/8
    *last 3 sets of these were done with 125 DBs, I mean I was just mauling these things like baby rattles

    flat bench BB
    4x8
    *mid-grip, to middle of chest

    decline BB
    3x10/8/6
    *I rarely do these, and they have to be done just perfectly to really make them worthwhile
    wide-grip, to top of chest/bottom of neck

    and that was that
    of course there was 7.5min warm-up & same cooldown, on treadmill

    then ran thru the postWO shake, and ~40min later had this big tastiness:



    2 servings mac & cheese+1/2 TBS butter+can chunk tuna
    1c raisin bran+1 scoop whey+1/2c almond milk+1/2c water
    1000cals, 145/70/17

    so at that point, with breakfast+postWO meal, and pre/postWO shakes, carbs are sitting ~435, which would be about 1/2 my daily allotment of carbs scheduled for today -- a perfect ratio

    you know I was thinking, as I adapt and get used to eating all this food, it's really gonna suck when I go back down to lower cals & carbs gonna be period of adjustment, that's for sure
