    bean you would have a great shot to bring some sick conditioning to the table, if you were doing a bb show..
    obviously you don't want to do that, as that is not what they are looking for in physique, but still..
    great work!
    I really appreciate the kind words snags.

    I do completely understand and agree with what you're saying. I believe that's why my coach does so well he's not the biggest but his conditioning is always on.

    I think hopefully by this time next year I can do bbing as long as I keep the off season clean and I'm able to bring my legs up a bit. BB squats will help ;-)

    I wanted to be like "no, bean, I don't think you can do it" just to play devil's advocate and because the people who say "you can't do it" add fuel to my fire. Then I thought about it, and looked at your most recent pics and said "nah, he's gonna crush this shlt, no question about it. ".

    Alrighty peeps. I am excited to say that the fine folks at EBF have been nice enough to send me some AAv2 and recompadrol for these last 6 weeks. I am vevry excited asa I am getting low on AP and I loved AAv2 the last couple times I ran it so this is a win win. Plus I have new dosing instructions to help me avoid some GI issues with recompadrol. I went and edited the title of this thread as things have changed and thought this was appropriate. Should be a fun final 6 weeks.

    Today's chest session was great huge pump (thanks c20) :-)

    Warmup per usual

    Incline Bb press
    135x22
    165x18
    185x12
    205x7
    155x12 wide form failed around 12 I think so I stopped

    Peck Deck big stretch controlled reps
    120x15
    130x13
    140x10 drop 100x11

    Slight incline DB press (slow neg 2 sec pause with 2 sec contraction)
    70x12
    75x10
    75x8

    Ladder Push-ups (my favorite finisher) we don't have chains or anything so all body weight
    No rest
    Lowest setting - 41
    Mid setting - around 18
    Higher setting - 16 I believe

    My chest was on fire after this. All sets had minimal rest I'd say no more than 30 secs on most some there was no rest.

    Gonna get some sprints done today in the back yard!

    Solid workout bean.

    I did something today that you might want to try when doing ladder pushups. I don't have chains either, so I started off with stretch pushups (feet on 1' box while holding dumbbells for added depth/stretch) before working up the "ladder". I thought it was great for a little added intensity.

    Legs yesterday sucked tbh

    Endurance blows right now on leg day. Literally felt like passing out after ea set of smith squats. I usually take at the most 1 m rests but I didn't even keep track yesterday. Did a big leg press pyramid then drop back down, followed by smith squats then sldl and calves.

    Coach was there and witnessed this and told me this is normal right now and to just push through.

    Today is off day thank god. Had a nice Easter dinner last night Kobe steak backed potatoe no cream or anything, huge salad and some lobster. Very vascular and full last night and this am. Going to do some sprints tonight after work. Hope u all had a great weekend

    Don't worry about it bean. Your going to be more tired the later in prep you get but just as your coach said, push through.

    I hate cutting. I never prepped for anything really but during my cut cycles I have a lot of bad days in the gym. Just feels like your body is in a state of shock from drastic changes.

    boldened, doesn't have to be that way
    if it is drastic, then the problem lies in your approach
    simple macro/micro changes are just as beneficial (if not moreso) than whacking the hell out of caloric intake

    Don't start with the old guy talk Bean. Next thing you know this thread will become geriatric and members won't stop talking about growing hair in odd places. "My ear hair is out if control!..."

    It's totally normal to feel the way that you do near a show. Don't worry, just push through. This is what separates people who win shows from those who don't.

    Yes you all are right. I just went from feeling like a god to feeling like crap and just wanting to be done with my workout. Lol. It's all a learning experience for me. Thanks classic. When is your show?

    Bean once took out a whole spartan phalanx by him self. He took an Olympic barbell and used it as a bow staff to fend of their speers and arrows and then beat them over the head...so the legend goes

    Today was a struggle as well but made it through. Went with a bit more of traditional exercises today. Sweat was pouring and vascularity is through the roof. I'd say C20 is kicked in

    Had to rise at 3:00am today since my boss told me to start at 630 today. Cannot wait to switch jobs.

    Warmup

    Wide Grip lat pulldowns
    160x14
    170x12
    180x9 drop 120x12

    DB Rows
    80x14/12/11

    Pullovers
    50x15
    60x13
    60x12

    Stretchers
    120x14
    120x12
    130x10

    Rack Deads
    225x14/12/12

    Cardio after 15m. Also through in calves in between sets I'm hitting these damn things like three times a week and nothing! Getting frustrated
