The Primordial Off-Season Adventure of SnagencyV2.0

Page 3 of 9 First 12345 ... Last

  1. shoulders/abs this day..another fine session.
    seated BB military press/seated laterals, standing DB front raises, standing plate raises were order of the day, followed by some ab work.
    cardio warmup/cooldown as usual.
    ran out of my brown rice syrup, my store was out too, so went another direction for postWO nutrition today:
    1 cup shredded wheat
    2 TBS honey
    8oz almond milk
    (not pictured, 40g isolate shake in water)
    ~525cals total.

    my pleasure man.
    been loving every day i've used it, same great effect every time so far.

  4. back training this morning..tennis later this afternoon.
    chins/rack pulls/lat pulldowns/deadlifts were the chosen exercises of the day.
    not much to report - strength remains constant, energy levels fine (axon in play again ), feeling good overall..
    same old, same old.

    EDIT: dint want this update to be so boring, so some added info.
    i use the perfect pullup attachments off my reg pullup bar sometimes, to get a different ROM and hand position - usually when i do these, my body is parallel to the floor in the contracted position, and i pull back tight.
    well, couple weeks back i was doing these, and both PP grips snapped simulteously! almost coulda been a bad scene, if it weren't for my cat-like reflexes and ability to level myself out before i landed flat on my back lol..
    so, upon a search i find that i'm not the only one this has happened to - indeed, some couple thousand consumers experienced the same thing, and the company issued a recall over a yr ago. talki about being late to the party.
    e-mailed the company, ands they promptly issued a replacement with the new and improved grips.
    fyi for anyone still using those old-style grips.
    they looked like this:


    the new grips look like this:


    and this is what i mean by using my pullup bar with them..i built this bar into the ceiling in my garage, attaching to studs in attic.

  5. mid-day snaggage (oops, i mean snackage).



    strayed from the ezekiel with some pepperidge farms 15-grain bread..stuff is pretty good.
    sandwich has deli cuts of turkey breast, roast beef, and black forest ham with a slice of 2% pepperjack cheese
    can of bumblebee albacore chunk tuna w/ garlic salsa
    obligatory veggie medley

    ~475cals total

  6. i always feel good after some tennis.



    this might be the last pic you guys see of me as a 40y/o..birthday is in a week, and gaining has slowed a bit, still ~ 192.6
    so i doubt i'll hit 195 before i turn 41.
    still amazed i'm eating as much as i am and seeing the weight gain slow tbh..my Pp run has pumped new life into this old body, gotten me back on track.
    (tennis was straight sets win btw, 7-5 and 6-3)

  7. breakfast.
    5oz turkey breast
    1 slice ez cr toasted w/ butter
    1 whole egg/2 whites
    1 cup grape nuts flakes
    1 cup almond/coconut milk
    large banana
    ~625cals



    training:
    hip thrusters, RDLs, bi/tri supersets, mixed in ab work.
    warmup/cooldown cardio.
    was supposed to be an off day, but i may not be able to train for next 2 days so got it in while i could.
    feeling good - esp after tennis yesterday.

    postWO nutrition:
    1 bagel (no butter)
    1 TBS honey
    30g isolate
    6oz Mountain Dew

    the dew just sounded good today.

    looking good dude, if i was that lean i might just throw out all my shirts and just walk around topless 365...

    haha, thanks bro.
    kinda irritating when ppl stare all the time tho..can only imagine how really big guys get eyeballed.


    haven't shown a dinner plate for awhile, thought this was a good time.
    bustin out some variety tonight..baked red potato on the side, salad too of course.
    main course:
    5oz turkey breast
    4oz laura's lean 92% beef
    1.5oz chicken breast chunks



    and, i stocked up on a few snacks, one shelf of my pantry..


  10. all right..time to take this thing to the next level.

    dietary consumption will be increased gradually now, macros/micros get a bit cleaner for awhile..the goal is to get to 5k cals -- and potentially hit 195 by my birthday.

    started this upward movement yesterday actually, hitting 4250cals on a non-tennis playing day.

    eating this many cals will require a slight sacrifice in chosen foods, to ensure no accompanying fat gain..

    workouts will also take on a slightly different structure, as i constantly evolve.

  11. Yo holy crap. All these mushroom foods look too good. So do those almonds. I'll check them out, but I doubt I can throw them into my diet

    By the way, you must look kind of silly with a racket. The thing probably looks more like a lollipop in your hands, lol

    Anyways, looks like things are coming along nicely here.

  12. update shots after a beast of a caloric excess last night..i broke 195 with a quickness, and with a lb to spare.




    how much i'll retain after normal caloric threshhold is up in the air, but i sure seemed to have sucked it up decently o/n.

    Dude your huge especially for how lean you are

  14. smallish update..
    5k is a sh!tload of cals for sure.
    harder than you think to eat clean and get those cals in...
    weight gain is going well over the last week, i've broken the 200# mark after a sloppy day or two of consumption - which shows me all the more that when dealing with this amount of cals, gotta keep 'em super clean if i wanna stay lean.
    staying in hiding for the time being.

  15. and i am due for some shufling of the macros.
    blew past 200# (204 to be exact), time to get pre-emptive and shape the duration of my dietary course now..
    will look something like this:

    1st 4 weeks: gain phase
    week 5: hardening week
    weeks 6-8: gain phase
    week 9: hardening phase
    weeks 10-11: 2-week gaining
    week 12: same as week #9

    looks interesting.... Calorie shuffling should keep your metabolism from lowering...

  17. dinner.



    5oz ground sirloin
    2oz steak strips
    10oz sweet potato
    2 cups veggies

    gonna love my new dietary script..won't be as much variety, but i don't need variety right now lol.

    i'll break it all down in my next entry, stay tuned.

    that's the hope!
    otherwise, ima be as big as a house, and about as mobile.

  19. switched up routines today, stepping outside of my own program designs for a rarity to run something diffrent, a blast from the past.
    some of you may know this program.

    day #1 of a 60 or 90 day plan (haven't decided yet)
    chest/biceps, 12 sets x 4 reps
    A1) 30-degree incline DB bench press
    A2) inclined DB bicep curl

    was good session, needed something to break me out of the rut from 'traditional' training, this was something i haven't done in like 3yrs..... there's enough built-in change within this program that i could run it if desired for the 90 days, we'll see how it goes.
    felt pretty damn strong this morning..update pic of 200+lb snags.


  20. dietary guidelines look a lil like this for now:

    meal #1: 3 whole eggs, 5oz lean beef, 1/2 cup oats

    meal #2: protein drink w/ healthy fats

    meal #3: 8oz chicken breast (or other lean protein source); 3/4 cup cooked brown rice (or other complex carb source); 2 cups veggies

    meal #4: 2 cans tuna or 8oz turkey breast, 1/2 cup cottage cheese, 1/2 cup unsweetened pineapple
    (option B - protein drink w/ healthy fats)

    meal #5: 8oz steak/beef/fish or other lean protein, 8oz baked red or sweet potato, salad

    meal #6: protein drink w/ healthy fats


    training days only:
    30min preWO, a ~260cal shake (~45g carbs/20g protein)
    immediately postWO, a ~415cal shake (same as above + 25g isolate)
    eat 60min following postWO shake

  21. day #2
    legs/calves, 5x5
    A1) narrow-stance squat
    A2) calf press
    B) deadlift

    nice session this morning, dietary choices are flowing well..conditioning improving should be much improved within a week.

  22. a small substitution on breakfast this morning.
    3 whole eggs, 2oz sliced cheese
    bagel, no butter
    grapefruit
    ~590cals



    and then, time to re-up on a few supps, protein mostly.
    i'm not a GN guy by any means, but i got a hella deal on these and the protein is certainly useable.



    haven't had any super pump in like forever, thought i'd give it a run.

  23. day #3
    back/triceps/shoulders, 12x4
    A1) weighted pullups
    A2) weighted dips
    B) standing DB military press


  24. following the session today, pump was swell.


  25. SUN 9/16 - day #4
    chest/biceps, 5x8-12 w/ 3 supersets
    A1) 30-degree incline DB bench press ss w/ 15% decline cable flyes
    A2) inclined DB bicep curl ss w/ reverse-grip ez-bar curls

    tennis on tap this afternoon, coming to the end of that activity very soon.


    MON 9/17 - day #5 OFF
