  1. Today's morning workout:

    I opted for a nice morning workout at our brand new fitness facility at work. I brought along my shaker filled with 1 scoop of Primal EAA and 6 scoops of Xtend. I ended up getting in a good workout and I intend of keeping some sort of morning routine in my workout schedule, even if it consists of light cardio and minor bodyparts like abs and forearms.

    Shoulders:

    Seated Dumbell Press w/ standing cable press
    Warm-up - 45lb per sidex12 w/30lb per side
    1 60lb per sidex12 w/30lb per side
    2 70lb per sidex10 w/40lb per side
    3 75lb per sidex10 w/50lb per side

    Cable Side Lateral w/Barbell Upright Rows
    1 20x15 w/65x12
    2 30x12 w/70x12
    3 30x12 wx75x10

    Reverse Peck Deck Flyes:
    1 80x15
    2 100x12
    3 110x12



    Notes:Great morning workout. Not the hardest or heaviest I will go but it was a nice workout none the less.


  2. Last night's workout (9/20/07)

    Back and Biceps

    Back:

    Barbell Deadlifts (from the floor)
    Warm-up set 135x15
    225x10
    315x10
    365x6
    375x3

    Biceps:

    Bar+60x6

    Notes: All in all it was an awesome workout. On the 3rd set of deadlifts, I hit the zone. I have no doubts it was the combo of good nutrition and that extra 1/2 a scoop of Primal NO2 I took before my workout. That stuff gets me so amped and the back pumps I had last night were out of control.

    I lifted at the fitness facility at work today, so i worked with what was there and got a pretty good workout out of it.

    Dialene 4 has been the perfect partner in my morning workouts. I have used so many stims that just hit you hard in the morning, especially when taken on an empty stomach. The slow-release of Dialne 4 has been a really welcome edition to my current suppliment regemine

  9. spreading the gospel where it's aready been spread!!!

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    So I was in the gym last night for another glorious leg day and I happened to run into a friend of mine from one of my old gyms. He was a cool guy and over time we had just lost touch. So we started BSing in between sets. We chatted about the old gym, other gyms and the fact that the Powerhouse gym in the area that he attended normally had been shut down by the cops due to Steroid distribtion, that's the reason he had come to my gym.

    In the middle of our conversation he spotted my shaker cup (which was filled to the brim with Grape Xtend and Primal EAA) and we got to talking about suppliments. I then quickly mentioned about Xtend and some other Scivation supps. To my surprise, not only had he heard about Xtend but he said he loves Xtend and is already on his 4th tub of Lemonade!!!

    At the end of my sets, I slipped him a copy of the Cut Diet - Volume 2 book b/c he was telling me that he would like to tighten up his diet and drop a few lbs.

    It was really good to see that the news is out there and Xtend is creeping into places that you would not expect it to be!

    Wow, what a freakin workout! The back workout by itself was great but the bicep tri-sets were off the hook. What a freakin pump from those! Highly reccomended!

    I took Thursday, 10/4 off completely. No cardio, no lifting. It's good to have one of these days every once in a while. As long as keep my diet in check, which i did, there is no reason to really sweat it and I am back with a vengence today and psyched to hit Chest and Triceps later on 2nite!

    Another awesome workout. I was able to get to the gym a little earlier than normal today, but that didn't throw me off one bit. It wasn't too crowded around the gym so I really didn't have to opportunity to be spotted when I need it, so I aired a little on the conservative side, especially with the bench exercisies.

    Today is the first day of my tri-phase training program. On tap for this evening's workout is Chest and Shoulders. I can't wait to begin this specialized program and really take advantage of this in order to help grow and make those weak points a little less weaker!

    The suppliments I am using will not change much. I will keep using what I have been using in addition to keeping the same suppliment schedule. I am currently using the following suppliments:

    Scivation Xtend - old school grape baby!
    Primaforce Beta Alanine
    Primaforce Glutamine
    Primaforce Primal NO2
    Scivation Primal EAA
    Multi-vitamin
    Scivation Sesamin
    Scivation Anagen
    Scivation Fenotest
    Scivation Dialene 4 - before morning cardio ONLY

    I will post diet info shortly!

    Seated Calf Raise x 4 sets

    Notes: What a great workout. I haven't messed around with 4 plates on the barbell Squat in quite a while but I had my spotter and I felt good today. It was just one of those days that came without any warning. There was no indication that I was feeling strong today, that was until I stepped under the Barbell and went to work. All was good once my knees got nice and warmed and then it all came together from there!

    Tommorow will bring some challenge nutrition-wise because I have to attend an all day seminar for work but I'm sure I will find a way to make it work. Even if i have to excuse myself in order to indulge in my chicken and green beans outside of the meeting, i'll make it happen!

    What a GREAT back and Traps workout. At Sporto's reccomendation, I switched out my normal Wide Grip Pull-ups with Rack Pulls. I hasn't done these in a while and I had forgotten how MONEY these are. I was thinking about keeping these in my routine for at least a couple more weeks. By the time I was done with my 4 sets of Rack Deadlifts to start out the day, my lower back was pumped like nobody's business! Great stuff. I can't wait until next week, where the workouts will stay the same but I will add a 5th set to every single exercise.

    Notes: It's days like these that I wish my gym wasn't down 3 flights of stairs. The trip up those stairs on a leg day like this is like climbing Mt. Everest. Another great tri-phase workout today. The addition of the 5th set tacked on a little extra time in the end but it was well worth it. I definitly milked those 90 seconds in between sets. I used every last second to recover, regroup and get my mind focused for another intense set.

    It was really great to run into a really good friend of mine at the gym last night. His name is Alex but like everyone at the gym, I have a nickname for him. His is Diese On Top (D.O.T.). He has a massive upper body but weak ass legs. My training sessions with him are always rediculiously intense. The way we feed off each other's energy is just insane. I hadn't seen him in a while and he joined me for a couple sets of legs and for the ones he didn't join me in, he shouted me out from the other side of the gym just to piss me off in the middle of my sets. Great Stuff!

Not only are my shoulders fried by the time I hit them, at the end of the workout they are completly toasted to the point of not wanting to raise my arms or carry my gym bag out of the gym. Thank g-d for the shoulder strap on my bag. This will be the last week of this combo as the Tri-Phase training goes into the Second Phase of workouts next week.

    10/24 -

    AM Cardio - 33 Minutes on Treadmill. Just for fun I threw in 5 1-minute sprints just to make things interesting. I was very happy with my stamina on these, even though you could wring about a gallon of sweat out of my t-shirt by the time my cardio session was over. I sipped on my usual 6 scoops of Xtend during my treadmil work.

    Followed by some basic Rotator Cuff Exercises - my left Rotator Cuff has been giving me some problems as of late. About a year ago I hurt my right rotator cuff. I didn't take any time off but I definitly babied it. It was during that time I did some research on some basic exercises to help strengthen the joint so I am going back to those now before it gets any more agrivated than it already is.

    Well this was the last back and traps workout during the Tri-phase program. What a freakin workout! Rack deads have become a new favorite for me but I think when I switch back to doing deads again, I am going back to deads from the floor. I just like the full motion of the lift and I fell that I get a better stretch from them as well.

    Notes: This was the final workout of both Week Three of the Tri-phase training but also the final week of the 1st phase. Now, on to phase number two. This phase is all about heavy and hard. I have never done an upper body/lower body split over a consistant number of weeks so I am really excited to see how I respond. Monday starts the first day of week number two for me.


    10/29

    AM Cardio: 32 Minutes on Treadmill.
    Followed by Abs:
    Hanging Leg Rasies

    On Tap for 2nite: Triphase Training - Week #4 - Phase #2

    A little about Phase 2 from the Tri-Phase Training Book:

    Phase 2?Intensity
    The Goal of Phase 2 is to lift a near maximal load for low reps. There will be no
    changes in the number of sets you complete, just the load you lift.
    ? Week 1 = 6-RM

    Rest time = 2-3 minutes between sets.

    Workout 1 Upper Body A

    Upper Body A
    Bench Press 3 X 2-6

    2 225x6
    3 225x6

    Notes: One thing that I can definitly say about my tri-phase training to this point is that handling heavy weight it alot of fun. It's definitly not near the volume of sets or exercises that I am used to but this is a different game. The heavy squats were great and I broke out the belt last night for a little lower-back support.

    By the third set of each exercise I really got a nice pump going. I think it had a little bit to do with my Xtend mega-dosing and of course my scoops of Vasocharge that I took pre-workout. It is very early but I can definitly see my mega-dosing yielding some great results.

    Notes: Well that puts to rest the upper body for week #4. What a pump I had going by the end of this workout. The heavy weight really forces you to step up your intensity. It's you against the weight and there is no losing that battle. This week of six reps per exercise has come to an end and next week starts 4 reps per exercise. Now that is going to be hell - and I can't wait!

    *Due to a work commitment this evening, I had to push my training up to this morning. Being the creature of habit that I am, I enjoy training at the same time but I will have to suck it up and push some weight first thing in the AM. A couple Dialene 4 and a couple of Vasocharge scoops upon wakening and I was good to go!

    10 Minute walk on treadmill to warm-up lower back and hamstrings (which are still a bit tender from the heavy Stiff Legged Deadlifts on Tuesday 10/30)

    Lower Body B:
    Deadlift

    1 365x6
    2 365x6
    3 365x6
    Leg Press
    1 10 plates per sidex6
    2 10 plates per sidex6
    3 10 plates per sidex6
    Standing Calf Raise on Smith Machine
    1 435x6
    2 435x6
    3 435x6
    Abducter/Adducter Machine - 3 sets of each

    Post-Workout Cardio: 25 minutes Low Impact on Treadmill at a 2.0 incline.

    Notes: Although I would have perfered to attempt this workout at my regular time, this kicked a$$. The Dialene and the Vasocharge gave me the kick that I needed to push through this simple, yet heavy workout. This just about wraps up the first week of Phase 2 training on the Tri-Phase system. I feel that I am enjoying this workout plan and I find my strength is increasing nicely as I go along.

    I am traveling to Ohio this weekend for pleasure, not business. I hope to get the opportunity to train at last twice possibly, both saturday and sunday. I am traveling on Monday and I don't see myself getting the opportunity to train on that day so my weekend training should go as follows:

    Friday - OFF
    Saturday - Weak Point Training plus Abs and Cardio
    Sunday - Tri-phase training Phase #2 Week #5 - Upper Body A
    Monday - OFF (possible cardio)

    On another note, my Fiancee has really stepped up her training as of late and is really getting into good shape. She has a very hectic schedule to work around and I really admire her for what she is working through. She did mention to me that she would like to step up her nutrition game so it looks like I will be buying her some Xtend. She isn't big on suppliments as is but I think Xtend is basic enough (yet will fill the void in many areas) for her to take.

    Notes: Well I am back in New York after an extended weekend away in Ohio. I had a lot of fun and I was very glad I was able to keep up my training. Yesterday was a great kick-off to Week #5 of the Tri-Phase training. My left shoulder is starting to feel a little bit better but I am still being very conservative with it and going a little bit lighter on the exercises that are giving me pain like shoulder presses, so I can allow it time to heal.

    I have been employing rotator cuff exercises every other night and i am allowing more than enough time to warm up my shoulder jointed before starting any exercises.

  22. 11/6

    Morning Cardio: 35 Minutes of Low Impact Treadmill Work

    On Tap for 2nite:

    Tri-Phase Training Week #5 - Lower Body A routine.

    I wanted to remind everyone that the NEW issue of Natural Bodybuilding & Fitness Magazine is out on newsstands as of this week. It features the WNBF's own Jim Cordova on the cover and there is contest coverage of the June 30, 2007 Hercules show where I won my pro card!!!

    In the contest coverage section, there is a picture of me (in a front relaxed pose) along with a couple of sentences about the Middleweight catagory that I won.

    You can check out the cover here at www.wnbf.net

    I picked up a bunch of issues already at a News and Magazine store in the airport but the magazine is available at Borders, Barnes & Nobles, gyms and newstands nationally.

    I will try to post a picture of the article as soon as I can.

    Last night's workout:
    11/6 - Tri-phase training week #5 phase #2

    Lower Body A

    Barbell Squats
    warm up set 135x15
    warm-up set #2 225x12
    1 405x4
    2 405x4
    3 425x5 - PERSONAL RECORD (that's what I'm talkin about - YEAH BUDDY!!!)
    Stiff Leg Deadlift
    1 275x4
    2 275x4
    3 275x4
    Standing Calf Raise on smith machine (b/c my gym is too ghetto to have a standing calf raise machine!!!)
    1 405x15
    2 405x10
    3 405x10
    Seated Calf Raise
    1 225x12
    2 225x10
    3 225x10

    Notes: Hell freakin yeah! With an increase in calories and a really good workout program, I am showing good strength gains. I had a really good spotter last night and I really went for it at the squat rack. I was happy to get to a personal record for 4 reps on my third set.

    Now that the weather is getting colder here in the northeast I really have the need to sufficiently warm-up and stretch very well before I hit the weights. This applies for when I am going light or heavy. It's so tempting to just want to run into the gym and hit the iron right away but I always have to remember to stretch and do some moderate cardio so I don't hit the weights before my body is ready for it. But trust me, my mind is ready as soon as I walk through the gym door!

    11/7- AM Cardio
    35 minutes on treadmill

    ABS -
    Hanging Leg Rasies
    Swiss Ball Crunches

    DB Shoulder Press 3 X 4
    DB Shrug 3 X 4
    Skull Crusher 3 X 4
    DB Curl 3 X 4

    11/7 - It ended up being a cardio and Abs only day. I decided to move my PM workout to Thursday. That will help to set up the rest of my week quite nicely. The rest of the week should look as follows:

    Thursday - Upper Body B
    Friday - Lower Body B
    Saturday - Weak point training (probably looking at hitting chest)

    11/8 - AM Cardio - 35 minutes on a treadmill at 0 incline

    Notes: I chose to go very conservative with the incline press due to the fact my left shoulder has been bothering me. I wasn't very happy with having to go lighter than I intended but in the long run, it was in my best interest.

    Tomorrow i am heading into the city (NYC) to attend the WNBF World's event. I am psyched to see the best of the WNBF compete and of course, I will be rocking the Team Scivation gear! It is going to be a HUGE show and in the end, it should be a real battle.

    11/9 - AM Cardio 35 minutes on treadmill

    On tap for 2nite: Tri-phase training - Lower Body B

    11/9 - Tri-phase training - Week #5 - Phase #2

    2 435x6
    3 435x6

    Notes: Well that wraps up week #5 of tri-phase training. According to the program, I have 4 weeks left. Next week, the exercises stay the same but the reps go down to 2 per set, the number of sets stay the same at 3 and the weight I am pushing will go up! A lot of the low-rep exercises will definitly require a spotter so it will be key for me to recruit some innocent bistander in the gym to help me out.

    My WNBF/INBF Worlds experience - 11/10/07

    It's great when you can just attend a show, rather than competing. Your job is just to show up and enjoy the competition just like the rest of the audience. I felt this way, until I got to the front doors. As soon as the opened, the sights, the atmosphere and the smell all converged and there was only one thought on my mind - competing. There is nothing like attending a show to get your competitive juices flowing. This also served as a great opportunity to meet up with some people I already know and meet some that i only know from on-line.

    After spending close to 45 minutes trying to find a free place to park my car, I was able to find a spot and walk over to the venue. It was held at the same High School where I won my Pro Card back in June, so it was really great to go back there and just chill. I met up with fellow WNBF (and NGA) pro Raf V. (raf2003) and it was great to chat with him. We had met back at one of my first NBI shows and we have kept in touch ever since. There also just happens to be a very interesting 2-page spread on him in the current issue of Natural Bodybuilding and Fitness. We talked about competing, our current and future plans and exchanged stories and of course watched all the action on stage.

    I got to the show just as the Lightweight Pro men took the stage. Brian Whitacre awesome right from the start. His conditioning is a model for others to follow. Shawn Clarida looked amazing as well and you knew that he was going to contend for a top spot right out of the gate.

    Jim Cordova looked unbelieveable. He is quickly becoming the face of the WNBF and that is hard to argue with. Great size with great conditioning. Full, hard and dry. Just plain awesome. As soon as you saw him, you new he had a true opportunity to take the show and he did.

    In the heavies it was a battle between Rodney Helaire and Ben Tennessen but in the end Rodney won out and it was hard to argue with. I am sorry I did not stay for the night show, the final posedown must have been a battle for the ages!

    It is always great to attend a high profile event (that you are not competing in). There were probably a lot more people from the BB.com boards at the show but it is tough to seek out people and even tougher to recoginze people in their off-season physique.

    Since this was the last WNBF event of the year, I would say this has been another great year for Natural Bodybuilding and the WNBF as a whole. There are a lot of young superstars out there and it should lend itself to some intense battles for the top spots in the comming years!

    The most important thing I believe I gained from the event is knowing that I am going to bring a truly complete package to the pro stage. I believe I can hang with these guys and that belief is all I need. I can not wait to get out there with the best of the WNBF and bring the best that i can.

    Notes: A great tri-phase workout. Half the battle going into this workout was attempting to figure out the type of weight I could do for 2 reps at 3 sets per exercise. Once I had this figured out in my head, I really dug in and went for it.

    11/13 - AM Cardio for 30 minutes on Treadmill at no incline

    Notes: Awesome workout! This is the last week I will be squatting like this because this is the end of phase #2. Next well, I will beging phase number 3 and phase 3 is all about frequency. I was so psyched to get those 2 reps with 455. I broke down and used a belt, but it was for my own good. Having a confident spotter makes all the difference with these. Even if it is someone to just stand behind you. The mental aspect of having someone there to spot you is more than 1/2 the battle.

    Notes: That is it! That's a wrap on phase #2 and week #6 of Triphase training. Honestly, I have not felt stronger. This is the best I have looked at 197 lbs and the best I have felt cardio-wise during the "off-season"

    I have decided I am going to take a cue from Mark Lobliner (Scivation) and starting in the first week of January, I will be running a 10-12 week cutting phase. During that time I will switch over to either the Cut Diet or the CHA Diet (www.scivationbooks.com) in order to keep my body guessing. This will not only serve to keep me lean and drop a few LBS of fat, but it will also prime my body for the Lean Mass phase that will immediately follow.

    11/19 - AM Cardio - 35 Minutes on Treadmill

    For those who are not familiar with Tri-Phase Training (www.scivationbooks.com), I am in the 7th week of the 9 week program. This week starts Phase #3 which is the frequency phase. Here is an except below taken directly from the book:

    Phase 3?Frequency
    The goal of Phase 3 is to hit each muscle more frequently than Phase 1 & 2.
    Workout 1 Whole Body A 2 X 4-6 Rest = 2 mins
    Workout 2 Whole Body B 2 X 6-10 Rest = 90 sec
    Workout 3 Whole Body C 2 X 10-12 Rest = 30 sec
    Workout 4 Weak Point
    Each workout uses different exercises and different rep ranges, though the same exercises could be used for each workout if one prefers. The goal is to do two sets of an exercise for each muscle group. Here is an example of how this workout could be set up:

    Muscle Workout A (Mon)
    Squats
    Stiff Leg Deadlift
    Seated Calf Raise
    Flat Press
    Bent Over Row
    Military Press
    Barbell Shrug
    Close Grip Bench
    Barbell Curl

    Workout B (Wed)
    Leg Press
    Lying Leg Curl
    Standing Calf Raise
    Incline Press

    Notes: What a freakin' workout today. I was pumped up to start another week of the Triphase program and I really hit it hard today. It was odd adjusting to two sets on each exercise today but that only meant that I should go harder on each set. With two sets on each exercise, there is a bigger picture in mind. This phase of the program is all about frequency. These same muscles will be hit again on Wednesday and on Friday so all out taxing of the muscles is not optimal here.

    Notes: Since I was visiting Northwest Ohio for thanksgiving, I had the opportunity to train in a town just outside of Columbus called Pikerington. I ended up training in a gym called Power Shack Fitness. (www.powershackfitness.com) Some of my favorite workouts are on the road. I just love visiting new gyms, meeting people, and getting the chance to use a variety of equiptment.

    Notes: Well, now it is the day after my Chest/Back Superset workout and I can safely say I was totally spent. Those supersets really knock the crap out of me. I was sweating like a dog in the gym and I even had to take a couple of extra seconds in between sets to regroup and lead the charge towards another go around! Supersets can really test your endurance. I have used supersets in the offseason and I occasionally employ Tri or Giant sets, but I haven't used any of these in a while and this was a nice shock to the system.

    Although the tri-phase system as it was written does not call for such a workout, i decided to employ this anyway. My OFF day will fall on Thursday of this week instead of my normal wednesday off. I am not sure I would reccomend using your weakpoint training day during the week (the tri-phase system calls for it to be scheduled on a Saturday) but my plans may not allow for me to hit the gym on saturday so I flipped it and used yesterday as my weak-point day. We will see if that impacts the rest of my training week negatively or positively, but as always, listen to your body and obey any warning signs including soreness, fatigue or lack of interest.

    Notes: What an awesome workout. It has been a week since I have started the Cissus/Elastamine combo and I really am shocked at the results. A week into the supplimentation, the pain in both my left rotator cuff and right knee has almost subsided all the way. I feel about 1/3 of the pain I was feeling before and this pain was going on for close to 6 weeks. I have regained a lot of flexability in addition to feeling substancially less pain and this is only 1 week into the stack!

I really felt the fatigue on the exercises that take the most out of me, such as deadlifts. As soon as I am 100% you can sure as hell count on some masstive PR's comming through!

    Notes: It was another ridiculous leg workout today. It took a couple of minutes longer for my knees to warm-up today but when they did, it was ON! My quads were fully pumped by the time I finished Squatting. Or maybe it had something to do with the Vasocharge dose I took right before I hit the gym. I love that stuff and it really forces me to hit the ground running and have an awesome workout.
    I had the opportunity to workout at a great gym in Charleston, SC and I was able to use a couple of machines that I don?t normally use. I tend to notice that even if the machine is the same type or brand even as what I normally use, the small differences really can shock the muscle. All machines age at different rates depending on upkeep and frequency of use and these machines were just what the doctor ordered. And of course, I was rockin my Team Scivation T-shirt to the fullest!

    Notes: My original plan called for shoulders on this day in addition to chest and traps but I tabled those for either 2nite or tomorrow. Sometimes you just have to listen to your body. If this workout is any indication of what lies ahead for me in 2008, it's going to be a sick year.

    Monday, January 7th, I am going to start dieting for a 10 to 12 week period...depending on my progress. I will once again be using the Cut Diet and following it to a T. It's time to start stocking up on almonds, avocados, and grapefruits!
