    I broke 200lbs today for the first time! I guess some of my weight yesterday (at 200#) was bloat from eating the way you do on airlines, and it all settling in my intestines or something, since i weighed in at 198 today! whoohoo!

    Heres just a pair of front/back, from 5/14 when I started the body for life challenge, 6/10 when I started this log, and today. Quite a difference over 10 weeks i'd say! A total of about 20 pounds lost in that timeframe, plus a little bit of muscle gain.

    the details are seeming to escape me...


    Started on pslin this week, but due to unforseen box in the mail, i'm going to discontinue it for a bit (more on that later). Its the most amazing crazy stuff there is tho. I never got the real pump feeling from the bulk YG, but wow on pslin. I couldn't finish my arm workout (lower body was fine that day). After thinking about it, its probably because bis/tris get worked in the compound exercises early in the workout so are super pumped. Plus I ate the oats only about 20 minutes pre workout (since I workout first thing) and hit bis/tris about 40 minutes later, so right at the hour mark... anyhow monday's upper body


    Chest Barbell bench press - 12@85, 10@95, 8@105, 6@115, 12@85 - Barbell incline bench press 7@85

    Back Wide Grip Lat pulldown -12@75, 10@100, 8@112.5, 6@125, 12@75 - One-arm dumbell rows(numbers per arm)
    12@30

    Shoulders Seated Dumbell Press - 12@50, 10@55, 8@62.5, 6@75, 12@55 - Lateral raises(numbers per arm) 12 @15

    Biceps Barbell Curls - 12@50, 10@55, 6@62.5, 3@67.5, 12@50 Concentration Curls(numbers per arm) 7@15 - Hammer Curls(numbers per arm) 8@15

    Triceps Triceps Pushdowns 12@55, 10@67.5, 7@75, 5@80, 12@50 Lying Triceps presses 12@30



    The pump in my bicep was completely crazy. Even during the 12@50 I could feel it. The low reps were WAY harder to make it thru than any time before. Not bad tho!

    Wed was lower, and I experienced none of the crazy pumps, but also I had all sweet potatos for carbs




    Quadriceps Leg Extensions 12@87.5, 10@100, 8@112.5, 6@125, 12@100 - Barbell Squats 12@155

    Hamstrings Lying Leg Curls 12@67.5, 10@75, 8@75, 6@80, 12@67.5 - Dumbell Lunges 12 each side@25 pounds each hand

    Calves Standing heel raises 12@265, 10@265, 8@295, 6@345, 24@195

    Abs Cable crunches 12@150, 10@150, 8@155, 6@155, 12@142.5 incline leg raises 12, no weight

    Some increases on the lower weights on standing heel raises, but nothing else. Not bad tho as far as I'm concerned.

    Only 10 more days now left in my body for life challenge, and I weighed in at 197 this morning. Not quite enough time to hit the 185/10% bf I had planned on, but pretty impressive overall really. 20 lbs in under 11 weeks with one week being a vacation is solid weight loss, and i've had strength gains the whole time as well. I'm guessing i'll hit around 193-194 by the end.

    That will leave me another 8-10 pounds I think to loose to get the "look" that I want bodyfat wise. Probably take 3-4 more weeks, then after that the fun starts! Plan is to do a slow bulk, looking for 1/2lb or so gain a week in lean mass using all natural stuff. And then maintaining that over the next 6 months or so, to get back over 200lbs but staying under 10% bf. Its going to be a fun year!

    I guess beyond the original reasons I talked about for getting into bodybuilding, a piece of this is the thought of my 25 year high school reunion. I was class of 1985, so 2010 it is. I've managed to be successful in career + family, so the only thing left I can show off in is my body, and I want to really wow them there particularly since I was a meatball thru most of high school

    Well, thursday my prize pack from the totally insane applied nutriceuticals contest arrived, and it had some of their new anabolic aka stim free rpm in it so I started taking it. I was pretty impressed

    Chest Barbell bench press - 12@85, 10@95, 8@105,6@150 - prior was 115!!!, 12@85 - Barbell incline bench press 7@85

    Back Wide Grip Lat pulldown -12@87.5, 10@100, 8@112.5, 6@125, 12@87.5 - One-arm dumbell rows(numbers per arm)
    12@30

    Shoulders Seated Dumbell Press - 12@50, 10@55, 8@62.5, 6@75, 12@55 - Lateral raises(numbers per arm) 12 @15

    Biceps Barbell Curls - 12@50, 10@55, 6@62.5, 3@67.5, 12@50 Concentration Curls(numbers per arm) 7@15 - Hammer Curls(numbers per arm) 8@15

    Triceps Triceps Pushdowns 12@62.5, 10@67.5, 7@75, 5@80, 12@50 Lying Triceps presses 12@30

    Quite impressive on the bench press jump! not sure how much was excitement over a new supplement and how much was real, but way cool either way! Got a good pump from it, not an insane crazy break your skin pump like pslin I decided to stop the pslin until i'm through with this new anabolic. So current intake is about like this

    Every Day
    Fish oil caps
    CLA caps
    multivitamin
    glucosamine/chondroiting/msm
    applied nutriceuticals new anabolic
    T-force @ 4/day
    Reset AD - my best friend ever
    Shred-XS Hardcore
    Osteobolin-C @ 16/day
    powerFull - soon to be replaced by IGF-2
    2g beta alanine
    5g taurine
    10g bcaa
    yellow gold

    Workout days
    EAS Betagen + SANS V12
    extra 2g beta alanine
    extra 5g taurine
    extra 15g bcaa


    This is the 2nd bottle of t-force, so i'm guessing its time to stop taking it when its done. Not sure what to shift to next as a test booster really, or whether I should try a few weeks with none? I need to decide soon

    Monday was also a pretty hot workout day

    Abs Cable crunches 12@150, 10@150, 8@155, 6@155, 12@142.5 incline leg raises 12, no weight

    I was happiest to break thru the 80 pound boundary on the lying curls, I'd been sitting there a while.

    Wed was upper, not so exiting, but decent

    From the scale, it looks like I may be stuck at 197. It seems ridiculous given the amount of calories I take in (yesterday was around 1450) and the work level that I could manage to get stuck. I hit 197 on sunday, should have managed to drop at least a pound since. The cool thing is that it seems that Drive is helping in a major recomp way instead, as I can see (and feel) the difference. My waist is down between 1/2 + 3/4 of an inch i'd estimate, and I can see more definition EVERYWHERE. Even the calipers are reading lower, with no change in weight. Which really is even better than loosing the weight

    This is the last week of my body for life challenge too, so in some ways the pause in weight loss is a little extra irrititating. Its been a good 12 weeks, I learned a lot in that time. Really a pity I didn't wait a little longer to actually enter the contest, as I think as big as the transformation was from 5/14 to now, the change from 6/10-the end of august will look even more. The next 3 weeks from now is when the love handles will be really disappearing, and some definition in my abs starts to show. Oh well, either way I'll get there

    Depending on how progress ends up at my final weigh in this weekend, I may end up making some more mods to what I am taking. I am quite close to the short term goal, and want to make sure I hit it by the end of august at least.

    From 6-17 the calipers read around 21mm, today around 13, putting me at 16% now. Its been a steady 1%ish a week, which basically means my 2lbs of weight loss a week has been fat, not muscle. That was fairly obvious to me, as strength has continued to go up, but its nice to have more confirmation

    Keep up the good work!

    Ever think about doing some workouts more geared towards fat loss?

    Like Charles Poliquin GBC?
    Chad Waterbury's Summer Project?

    I kinda think at this point i'm heading into a recomp. I really had a target of under 10%, so i've maybe got 10-12lbs to go. I figure if I were to maintain scale weight, but gain 1lb lean body mass a week for the next 3 months, I hit my goal. Looking at the last 3 weeks, i've only lost 1 lb of scale weight, but I can see the difference in my waist, even in the definition on my forearms. So i'm pretty sure that in that time i've had some amount of recomp success. I'm going to look into those as well tho, just because I am getting a little bored of the same routine.
