  2. Yesterday I did an hour of fasted cardio with only 5g of BCAA's and yohimbine. Later that day I went and did chest and back. Here's how it went down.

    While dieting I do higher reps, usually 8-10. Sets are usually 3-5. Nothing is ever set in stone, I go by how my body feels and push it until I think it's had enough.

    -Hammer Strength Incline Press

    -Bench Press

    -Chest Press
    compound setted with:
    -Pec Deck

    Then on to back

    -Hammer Strength Iso-lateral Rows
    did these alternating arms, no rest in between arms

    -Hammer Strength High Rows

    -Yate Rows

    -Lat Pull-Downs

    -Straight Arm pushdowns

    I then finished with some extreme stretches (DC style)

    Afterwards I took two caps of slinshot and had my carb/protein meal. Felt pretty good about today. Nothing adverse.

  3. Today I did about 2 hours and 15 minutes of full court basketball. It was pretty fun but I should have stopped earlier cause I feel so exhausted now. I took my slinshot when I got home and am just now finishing up my carb/protein meal.

    Lift the fücking weight from the floor, or leave it on the ground. The thoughts are supposed to be daunting. The pain is meant to be tormenting.

    SO true! I could never have done two hours of cardio on a treadmill straight. I would have gone insane. Sports on the other hand, I can go all day!

    The stretches are great. Dante Trudel (DC Training creator) has alot of good info on his website about it.

  9. Today I did Olympic Lifts. I did the Clean and Jerk move in particular (enter crude joke here Fl3x ).
    I felt pretty good and had some good lifts. I felt more loose then times past and could dip under the bar better on the clean. I did these for about two hours. However, I had my boys with me and had them practicing them in between sets as well. My older wanted to go up a little so here's a video of him attempting 37 lbs. Btw, he only weighs 50 lbs.




    I'm about a month out from my competition and still have some work to do but I'll think I'm on track so far. I'm interested in hearing others thoughts unless you don't know what you're talking about cause you suck. Alright, go ahead and attack! I'm not posing but I do hope to get some of those pics soon. My buddy who I am training for him first competition has access to a school with a stage that we can use for practice.



    I had my slinshot 15 minutes before my lunch today. I ended up working out a couple hours afterwards and have to say, I had some great vascularity showing through during my workout, more so then usual. I'm feeling pretty good and really good about the workout today.

    So after my Oly lifts, I had a protein shake, waited 15 minutes and then did my metabolic sand conditioning. I forgot to take a picture so you guys would understand what I'm doing but I'll grab one next time. I did a series of functional exercises in the sand at a gym called Fitness Origin, next door to my lifting gym. I do several stations with 70 seconds doing each individual exercise and then 20 seconds of rest in between exercises. This is then repeated for three full rotations. Similar to cross fit but not really. Not really cause it's all in sand which increases stabilizer work and the focus is on proper form, not amount of reps. So here's what I did today:

    -Push-ups

    -Bicep Curls with resistance bands

    -Bear Walks

    -Battle Ropes, alternating arms in quick succession

    -Kettle Bell upright rows to a Reverse Lunge

    -Skull Crushers using TRX

    -Lateral Frog jumps

    Then repeated 3 times. It was pretty exhausting but felt great to get it done too. I then stretched and ate.

  12. Today, I thought, was very productive. I tried something new today for my cardio session. I used Lyle McDonald's Stubborn Body Fat 2.0 protocol (SBF-2). This is how it looks: In the morning I took 17.5 mg of SNS Yohimbine and 200 mg of caffeine, per protocol. I also added in 25 mg of synephrine cause I love that stuff. About 30 minutes later I did fasted cardio exactly as he has laid out. It went like this on my home elliptical:
    -5 minutes of warm-up
    -5 minutes of High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) with 15 sec all out and then 45 sec slow
    -5 minutes rest
    -40 minutes Low Intensity Steady State (LISS)
    -Immediately followed by 5 more minutes of HIIT, this time with 30/30 interval splits
    -5 minute cool down
    For a total of 60 minutes.

    Later this evening I did another 15 minutes of LISS and then proceeded with my chest/back superset workout.

    -T-Bar Rows
    supersetted with:
    -Incline DB Bench Press

    -Lat Pull-Downs
    ss w/:
    -HS Wide Grip Chest Press

    -Close Grip Seated Cable Rows
    ss w/:
    -HS Incline Press
    ss w/:
    -Straight Arm Pushdowns

    All exercises were done with 3-4 sets at ~10 reps.

    I finished with practicing my posing routine.

    I feel pretty good and can already feel the soreness in my chest.

    Working on that, each weeks it seems to get a little better.

    For the SBF cardio session, I wore a Polar telemetry strap that syncs to my elliptical. According to what it showed, and I'm going off of memory here, it was just over 500 calories.

  16. I did LISS cardio again this morning for 60 minutes. It actually seemed harder to get through then the SBF.

    Then I had my lunch consisting of: two grilled chicken breasts
    large salad of baby spinach, lettuce, and alpha sprouts. Topped with white wine vinegar (consisting of a whopping 3 calories)
    6 oz of blackberries
    grape fruit and a mandarin
    and two Slinshot of course!

    Tonight I will do more cardio in the form of basketball.
    Serious Nutrition Solutions rep

  17. Alright, last night I did my basketball as planned. Only played about an hour cause WAY too many people came. I had a good carb up day with plenty of Slinshot to help out.

    Well, this morning I spent some time in front of the mirror shaving and noticed that I looked tighter. I think the SlinShot really is helping.

    Today was a bit brutal. I started the morning with 60 minutes of LISS cardio on the elliptical. Later in the day I went to the gym and did Olympic Lifts, working on the snatch. While I was doing it, a girl came up to me and started talking to me about technique. I listened, and actually learned quite a bit from her! I guess her husband is on the olympic team.

    After that I did another 30 minutes of cardio. I then sat in the steam room for about half an hour which gave me a lovely headache. I went and tanned afterwards and upped the time and ended up pretty red.

    A couple hours later I returned to the gym to train my wife when she got off work.

    So now it's about 10 pm, but I'm not done yet. I make myself a wonderful and filling salad consisting of lettuce, spinach, alfalfa sprouts, broccoli, 97% lean ham, and vinegar. I ate that in the car as I made my way over to my buddy's gym in a neighboring city (what a good friend! ). We then practiced our posing routines for over an hour. Got some good practice in today.

    I felt like I accomplished a lot today but man am I exhausted! Getting ready to go to bed now. Just wanted to reiterate the physique improvements that I'm already seeing. My posing buddy noticed it too.

    I only have 16 days until my competition and I'm really working hard on brining in the best conditioning I can, which is why I've kicked up the cardio. LISS done at ~60% of VO2 max mainly uses fat oxidation for the source of energy expenditure, which is why I do a lot of it. Plus it doesn't wear me out near as much. I just dropped my calories to my final low of 2,000 per day with 50% of my macronutrients being from protein sources to help stave off as much catabolism as possible in such a deficit. I'm also taking BCAA's throughout the day as well, which I feel really shines in cutting.

    My LISS workouts vary. I like doing them on the elliptical and treadmill. I have a Polar heart rate monitor that I wear and use to help me know where I'm at as well as my own feelings of perceived exertion. On a treadmill, I'll often have it at 3-3.5 MPH at a 1% incline. I do it semi-fasted, so only taking in about 5g of BCAA's right before I start. The BCAA intake I follow is based off of the research that Layne Norton did. Doing it like this, blunts any possible increase from insulin through the rise in exercise induced catecholamines, which then keeps me in a fasted state. This allows me to predominately burn fat for energy while helping to negate potential muscle wasting.

  20. I feel pretty drained today. Due in part to all my exercise yesterday but also because of my diet. Yesterday was my low carb day and I'm also following the Lean Gains diet, so I don't even eat for another hour. Regardless, I know I need to push forward to get the results I want. I don't think I could have done another elliptical session this morning without hating every minute of it and wishing it was over, so instead I did LISS with my wife by taking a walk around our neighborhood. I ended up walking for 52 minutes and 57 seconds. I went 2.32 miles at an average pace of 2.6 MPH and burned off 320 calories. Can't wait to eat, even though it's just a big salad and chicken.

    Thanks guys, certainly will be. I read a quote tonight that I really liked. "We become what we want to be by consistently being what we want to become each day." -Richard G. Scott

    Everyday I draw closer to my goals.


    So tonight for cardio I played some more basketball. Did about 2 hours of full court basketball. It was hard to find the energy tonight with how much I've been doing, but I managed to get some work done and have some fun doing it too!

  25. I did another round of fasted LISS cardio this morning. I tracked it again and here's what it looked like. It was 52 minutes, 2.55 miles, avg speed of 3.0 MPH, and 322 calories. I'm going to eat here soon and then head to the gym in a couple hours.

    Lunch:


    Salad with 10 oz of shredded turkey breast, a grapefruit, and blackberries.


    Dinner:


    Salmon and the white stuff is cauliflower, steamed to the point where it mashes down easily and makes a nice rice substitute.
