Yesterday I didn't make it. Duty called. Couldn't get out of work in time to make it. Its ok it was just cardio and Abs.
This morning I did fasted cardio, abs, and calves. Burn start while doing abs, love the feeling. Great placebo for me it like a game once it starts I try to see how long I can keep it and if I can make it more intense.
After cardio I had a decent breakfast. Good lunch and a little too much food for my preworkout. I am at the gym now waiting ony partner. I ate about 1.5 hours ago and still fill bloated. I ate 1/2 cup of oats with 2 tablespoons nati pb a handful of raisins (maybe 1/8th cup) and a scoop of whey ISO-100. Then 6 egg whites.
Have push/ pull arms today. Hope to get a good pump, put that food to work.
I weighed in on an empty stomach this morning 213lbs. So I am holding good. Been fluctuating from 213 to 215 for 3 weeks now. Last measure bf% at 8.9. Don't know how accurate, but the lowest I've measure in a while.
Time to hit the weights. Shout at ya later.

This weekeng was full of two brutal workouts. legs on Saturday, Back on Sunday. My body is feeling the pain today. Could barely get out of bed, after 7.5 hours of sleep I still felt like I was beaten.
However, Post workout Sunday sunday was my refeed. It was much more then I normally give myself, but I wanted to eat. I ate 35 wings. 25 with hot sauce and 10 plain. that meal alone was around 2200-2300 cals. Thats the first time in 14-15 weeks Ive ate over a two hundred cals over my daily norm. Even my refeeds are usually upped carbs by 50 or so and I eat slightly fattier food I wouldn't normally eat.

The idea of 30 wings has me salivating right now.

Man today was one of those days, kids sick 103 temp all last night, wife's birthday, and called into a meeting this morning on my day off.
With all that, I hit a slow ride this morning for 35 minute and 9 miles; then hit a meeting met the wife for a late brunch, tanned, and then hit weights. Did a upper body workout of front delts, rear delts, bicep, triceps, traps and then calves. Very fast paced 2 excersises per muscle group.
Felt good when I left. Rushed home got ready and we went to a movie. We saw end of watch. It's very good movie but bad ending.
Still applying DermaTherm post shower at night. Then pre workout in evenings. Really enjoying the pre workout application. Nice deep burn.
I am looking about the same wich I am happy with. Have to hold On To gains and want to keep the bf low during pct.
I feel stronger now then on cycle. Body is harder must be from the ai and serm. Will post up some two week out pct photos soon.

Thanks ryansm He is doing much better today. He is still sluggish due to no energy. But he's back to eating and looks much better.
I had an adventure last night. I got out of the shower and went to apply my DermaTherm I put it in my hand and as I sent to put it on my stomach and it dripped off my hand down to my crotch. That was one helluva burn. Holy cow I stood in front of a fan for 30 minutes.
I hit the gym this morning did 35 min on the stair master and abs. Felt great with a good deep burn. I took my shirt off in the locker room and wow were my abs vascular. They were nice and red from the DermaTherm but the veins were everywhere. Very impressive.
Came home from the gym and did about 1.5 hours of yard work the burn stayed the entire time. It's an adicting feeling. I really like it.
Resting up now to hit the gym for legs tonight. Gonna smash them. I Love legs I feel like it just takes everything to keep going and when I finish it gives me th same feeling I use to have after a football game or pt test.
10-04-2012, 01:31 PM
Oh man, I can only imagine the pain with last nights adventure.
10-05-2012, 03:52 PM
complete exhaustion when I was done with legs, I was soaked head to toe, sweated a lot more then normal.
my leg routine:
Squats: 135x20, 225 x 10, 275x5, 275x5, 275x5, 225x10, 135x10
Hack Squats (Hammer Strength) Heels together toes pointed out: 225x8 for 3 sets
Single leg hamstring curl (standing) superset with leg extensions:
100x10 3 sets 140x10 3 sets
Lying hamstring curl super set sitting calves
135x10 3 sets 150x failure toes in, out, and straight

I was dead afterwards. Could barely walk and feeling it today.
As far as DermaTherm, I am loving it. Woke up this morning shredded. slowly but surely I am getting leaner in the midsection. My strength is great for PCT its not down at all. I am weighing in at 213 to 215. still hovering in the 8-9% category. will test in another week. I really like that I feel dermatherm when my workouts get intense, it adds to it.

Christ, I would be dead after that session too. Good work.

Updated Body Shots
Week 2 of PCT started so I figuered it was time to post photos.
Really didnt like how these turned out, shoty lighting and grainy. excuse the iPhone, its the 4 so camera isnt that great.
Since last photos, I have completed two weeks PCT. I have upped cals 400cals while on PCT I am around 2400, 55P, 20C, 25F , then back and leg day 2600cal, 50P, 30C, 20F. My protein is either Hydrolized Whey, Chicken Breast/Tenderloins, Salmon, Lean Sirloin, Ground Lean Turkey. My carbs are Rolled Oats, Sweet potato, vegi's, and Fruits. My fats are Almonds, Cashews, Avacados, and PB. I make my diet on monday for the week and individually package it, except for dinner.
I have been doing a 1 meal refeed a week usually sunday afternoon post workout. But I am going to stop that for the next three weeks.
I feel alittle bloated today, but didnt want to post photos selectively. I would like them to go every two weeks. I ate a Double Meat Roast Beef 6" Sub with cheese, spinach, green peppers, and mustard last night. It was pretty much my dinner due to being in a meeting till 830pm. I thionk the high sodium in that is why I feel so bloated. I also ate two cans of Tuna yesterday, it was a hectic day. October is a busy month for us at work.
Try to show the vasuclarity I have in the obliques. It can be pretty impressive after a cardio session, this was after no workout, when I am dryed out from sweating it is even more vascular.

For some reason, the attachments are not working for me...anyone else?

Today was a good day. Started with fasted cardio stair master 45 min, abs, and calves. I tanned then went home, ate, and fell asleep. It felt great to have a day just to lay around.
During this mornings workout I had a nice burn, skin turned nice and red. I am liking the way derma therm is working. Apply it and still feel it hours later. Weight has been consistent at 213- 215.
Since on pct I feel really good. I ve gained strength surprisingly. Maybe it's the added calories.
I need to research some new oblique exercises. While I am this lean I really want to make them pop. Abs look good obliques have good veins but want more striations and muscle.
I haven't forgot about the photos they are on my work computer so I will repost them Wednesday morning.

I ve been using the derma therm for a while now, I really have enjoyed the product thus far. I feel it has really aided in my leaness during PCT.
I have decided that I am going to compete in Mens Physique in November. Its a smaller NPC event then what I have planned for April. I am very surprised that I have remained this lean through PCT and even gained strength. This is the best I ve felt during a pct. I was in the gym yesterday, after my workout I went into the locker room and started talking to a good friend of mine who bodybuilds and we got to talking about the November show. For a while now he has been telling me to compete there simply for experience before a much larger show,
He wanted to see my mid section, so I took off my shirt. I am probably 3% lower then him and he is competeing in body building for the November show. He instilled a little more confidence in me. He has been competing for a while and watched the Physique class come and grow. He thinks I am far above the curve in prepping. He said he wouldnt get any lower in BF% until the last few days. He said he would stop the sodium and take a water pill to dry me out a bit. But just maintain tiill then. I feel I would want to drop about 2% before the show.
My goal was to compete at 5% in Mens Physique for April. I am hanging around the 8.5-9% area. Since I ve been on pct I added caories, and it have really done me well in strength, I havent gained any weight. I have consistently weighed 213-215 lbs for a while now. Lately in the mornings I wake up very shredded more then I was on Epi. If I dried out, I could imagine how shredded I would look. I drink about 2 gallons a day, I drink 1 gallon out of a jug, plus 48 ounces of BCAA a day (2 24 ounce shakers), 24 oz of Pre workout (1 24ounce Shaker), 24 oz - 48 oz during workout, plus the little I take in with my shakes. I still feel in the mornings I look really good. Right after waking up I drink 40 oz of water. I drink 20 ounces then get ready for work, then drink another 20 ounces before I leave the house.
How big of a difference does it make to dry out pre contest. I don't have water pills. Would water/sodium depletion give me more striations, but keep vascularity. I know I dont want to be as lean as a body builder, I also want to keep good shape and not look flat. If you guys have any advice on this I would appreciate any.
10-10-2012, 01:15 PM
Wow incredible condition bud. Good luck in physique. I unfortunately cant answer the prep questions, as I am unfamiliar.
10-10-2012, 01:51 PM
Physique guys that do WELL --- do in fact get pretty damn lean, so I would say -- strive to get even leaner by November....
Drying out doesnt need to be over complicated and is as simple as a few adjustments. For a very very simplistic way to dry out naturally...
Water remains high last week (2 gals)
Sodium is Hi (as it should be throughout prep)
Carbs should be low in the final 2 days to further flush water and sodium
Sodium is REDUCED ONLY Friday (1 day out)
Water gets drank Hi all the way Til friday night around 9 pm...
Next morning --- sip only iced black coffee...
