    I have another pic where i'm even leaner but i don't know how much i weigh..

    Here it is, there's also a pic from the back you can see striations which i never noticed

    Attachment 44045

    Considering i had no idea what i was doing right here it makes me feel even better i accomplished it. This was from pretty much a home workout i put together with pushups/pullups that i had done for a couple months. I also did that Insanity cardio program which is what initially got me really lean.
    damn this is MEAN progress!!!

    I've been getting that a lot lately, Makes me feel really good that i look heavier than i actually weigh , I did think about seriously cutting but i'm just gonna keep my fat under control and march forward 1Lb at a time.

    and you're talking about cutting bi work by doing pull ups, is this the compound exercises you were talking about? i wasnt even sure what the hell you meant by compound when you mentioned it earlier ..but this makes sense.

    you'll never catch me dead layin off bi's, probably some of my favorite lifts.
    any advice for compounds that would build the forearms?
    Those pic's were from around July 11', August i went on a roadtrip then when i got back i started going to the gym instead of doing home workouts. THAT'S when i blew up!

    What i meant by that was i'm gonna do bodyweight chin ups with bi's prioritized so when i do them i focus on using my arms more. I'm pretty sure a 230Lb "Bicep" curl will be better for me than the normal DB work i did. Plus i have had trouble growing my arms more so i may need to not work them directly as much. I do a lot of heavy rowing too. As i'm typing this my arms still feel sapped from my workout even though i cut out 2 entire bi exercises.

    Thanks man! I REALLY messed up my diet though, not by bad foods. But i seriously was trying to eat like 1000-1500 calories while doing this insane cardio program. If i would have eaten around 3k i would have been as lean or leaner and bigger. I learned really quick though and that's a good thing.

    Thanks!

    Oh and you guys would FREAK if you saw older pic's than that, their from about 2 years prior around 2008 i seriously looked so skinny that i myself can't believe it! I had a SMALL sized shirt and my arms weren't even close to filling out the sleeves, This was when i skated a LOT but i probably didn't eat enough so i wasn't intentionally that skinny. It is going to make an absolutely insane transformation/motivation for people once i finally am content with my physique and time to get on stage and begin my dream.
    I hope everybody thinks i'm crazy, because you cannot be a sane person and go through the type of pain i am willing to put myself through to be where i want to be, Once I completely win the war between my mind and body, my reign will begin. ~Me

    Sorta haha, it's kind of a joke between a guy in the gym and me. He always makes fun of my hands because since my bones are so tiny my hands look smaller the bigger i get. He always talks about the burger king commercial haha it's pretty funny though

    Man i really hope so, i want the illusion to be as drastic as possible. PAUL DILLET IS THE PERFECT EXAMPLE OF THIS! 6'1" 285Lbs, but had smallllll joints/bones. One step at a time is what it's gonna take.

    Other notes for today:

    As soon as i got back from training i started to get hungry... not just normal hungry after a workout either i was STARVING, i sailed through a HUGE bowl of 4 Cups fruity pebbles and 24oz of whole milk for post-workout glycogen replenishment and after ALL that i felt the same as before. Appetite is seriously blowing up right now. Don't be surprised if you see 5k+ calories for today, i'm THAT hungry!! Good thing though!

    I know right? It's a shame the guy stopped competing/training, i mean seriously if i had that physique i would dedicate myself to just being a motivational freight train for people.

    Oh they were it was almost painful too! I have been having an annoying feeling on my left lat right by the teres area. I have been using a tennis ball on it and it seems to be getting better little by little. Glad to motivate you man kill the sh*t outta your pull day!

    Yea the lats are hard to massage but the tennis ball trick works well IMO.

    The cool thing is i'm not forcing it like before, i'm just hungry more often. Metabolism is definitely picking up speed again! I'll keep updating if the pain continues, it seems to only be like a soreness honestly but it feels weird that's why i'm cautious.

    I still can't comprehend how big he must have been i mean the average IFBB Pro is like 5'9"-5'11". THE OLYMPIA IS GONNA BE KICKASS! Probably gonna watch it on a webcast, i really want to go to the Arnold Classic Expo next year. If i score a job at my gym they go every year so maybe i could tag with them. People tell me they leave with hundreds of dollars worth of stuff like supp's and shirts/etc.

    Well, what i'm doing with higher calories on training days is to try and off-set the cal's i burn from training. Off days since i'm not training 4400-4600 seem to be fine since i'm not doing anything really. Weight is 231.4Lbs (+12.8Lbs) as of today, it's cool how my weight goes up here's an example from last week.
    226.2
    225.4
    225.2
    224.7
    226.8
    227.2
    227.6

    I added a little bit of cal's around when i was 224 and that did the trick. It won't be long now till these XL sized shirts will be too small

    GETTING READY TO TRAIN C/S/T Ironically i need to work on all these areas so today i might drop the sets a little bit depending on how i feel because that's how i train, Instinctively!

    Another awesome workout, it seems though as my compound lifts get heavier and heavier that after about 2 exercises of 3-5 sets i'm TOAST. I couldn't get overhead pressing today my tri's were so wasted from dips. Not a bad thing though workout was shorter but WAYY more intense. 2 hours today which is 30 minutes shorter. I think this increased recovery is the key to my arms/chest/shoulders growing.

    Chest/Shoulders/Tri's *RECOVERY EDITION* 9/16/11
    Duration: 2 Hours (-30 minutes)
    Mood: Focused
    Energy: Great
    Other notes: This workout was a lot shorter but i KILLED myself on RGIBP and Weighted Dips today. Gonna see if this increased recovery will help my arms grow. Focusing more on intensity for the next 2 weeks. Not doing fascia stretching for a week to let my connective tissue heal up as outline in DC training description.
    CHEST WORKOUT PR BY ITSELF MEANS NEW WEIGHT I HAVE NEVER USED.
    Reverse Grip Incline Bench Press on Smith-
    105 x 18
    195 x 8
    235 x 9 + Held last Rep until failure. *PR* +5 Reps and Hold.
    245 x 5 + Held last Rep until failure. *PR*
    Dips-
    +25 x 6 *PR*
    +25 x 10 + 3 Negatives *PR*
    BW x 10
    Drop set to
    -20/-40/-60/-80/-100/-120/-140
    Flat Bench on Smith- Chest/Tri's were fried from dips so i just did two sets.
    105 x 16
    175 x 8
    Leaning 1 Arm DB Fly- Removing these for a week.
    Cable Crossover- Also Removing these for a week.

    16 Sets

    SHOULDER WORKOUT- For those wondering, I train Rear-Delts with Back since i do a lot of pulling/rowing.
    Seated Smith Machine OH Press- Did 1 set of Higher reps with rest pause. I now know why they call Dips the upper body squat!
    105 x 16
    Dumbbell Laterals- Strict form until failure then a few cheat reps.
    35 x 12
    30 x 8
    30 x 16
    25 x 8
    25 x 10
    20 x 12
    15 x 14

    8 Sets

    Total: 24 Sets

    The whole point of this workout was to hit it hard and quick. I want to see if my recovery improves more if i cut my workouts a little shorter. My main focus is gonna be intensity.

    .:Update on TestoPro:.
    Day 19 (11 to go!)

    -Confidence is still up
    -Alpha-Male shows it's face everywhere
    -Libido is about the same as last week.
    -Aggression is up but not in a bad way, stress levels are low.
    -Strength is still increasing along with size
    -231Lbs today (+12.4Lbs) Minimal-to-no fat gain, In fact i still look leaner then when i started.
    -No acne problems, i think my face has actually cleared up a lot while on this which is definitely a plus.
    -Jeans are fitting a lot tighter on my legs and butt making it a little harder to put them on but waist is still the same size. I almost can't get my thighs in them anymore! Still seeing lines in my legs so they did have fat gain. Butt is probably from those heavy rack pulls.

    -TestoPro is some good stuff AI!

    I'm tellin ya'll i don't mess around with bulkin! You have to KILL yourself in the gym though first then your body NEEDS that food. Pic's at week 4 will show the progress.. No doubt in my mind best recipe for mass is Compound movements, adding weight to them every workout or reps every workout and rest (which i always have used 6-7 days before i train it again) + a good amount of food/calories.

    Thanks man! I knew today was gonna be the day for dip pr's and those Reverse grip i should have had last week but either way i'm happy with it! That last rep with the heavy weight i held for about 10-15 seconds it was BRUTAL. The exercise is tricky though, i would not recommend going all the way to chest with it as it puts your elbows in a really awkward position. I stop a few inches short of my chest and just before *******. I still gotta give it another few weeks to see if it really is developing my upper chest/tri's. I know for a fact it hits front delts REALLY good.

    The eggs in the shakes are alright, if anything they add "thickness" to them which makes them harder to drink but gotta do what you gotta do haha Taste is....meh

    Thanks matt

    Oh i definitely will man, only thing stopping me is money and food haha

    I also noticed something very important, I always train my legs with around 20-30 sets which seems to be making them grow more and more. So in an essence i probably should be doing less sets for my upper body considering it's not made to handle the amount of sets my legs need since i'm walking on them all day. I mean, i don't walk on my hands with my shoulders and tri's all day so that could be a factor why my legs are so far ahead of my upper body. I posed at the gym and usually you expect to see a guy with a good upper body and lacking legs but even with my upper body being alright my legs dwarf it. Idk if that's a good thing or bad thing. Back seems to respond well to more sets but bi's don't like it either. I'll probably be cutting out more sets to see if this works, i also have been thinking of possibly doing a 1 week HIT style "recovery" which would be 1 set per exercise all out aiming for a PR, This way i would still be improving my strength/size and giving myself 2x more recovery considering these workouts would probably last 30 minutes as opposed to 2 hours, so actually 4x more recovery. That seems like a really really good idea...
