Pretty solid day today, deff. felt like i had tons of energy, sorness?? not too much of an issue. Loving the food intake, here's a log of every damn thing i consumed today:
Total water intake estimation 1.5 to 2 gallons
1.5 scoops of whey/ mixed in with a cup of blueberries
2 tbs. of acai berries
2 tsp. of fish ol'
3 caps of greens plus
3 grams of beta alanine
cup of stir fried veggies covered in seasons
Spike shooter to wake my arse up
8 ounces of skim colby cheese
1 pm *CHEAT MEAL!* (number 2 of 3 for the week)
12 inch ham sub, on wheat, all the fixings
no cheese, no oils, just vinigar, mustard, and seasonings
2 handful mixed nuts
cup of strawberries/rasberries,
stir fry veggies (same as breakfast)
2 teaspoons of fish ol'
2 tbs. of acai berries
bout 1.5 liters of water with 2 tbs. of glycerine
30 grams of whey, 1/2 banana, 10 grams of bcaa, 5 grams of creatine mono., beta alanine, some glutamine
10:15 (post workout)
same as pre, minus the creatine, and beta alanine
before i go to sleep (PENDING)
40 grams of dark choco.
10 grams of BCAA
Now for the workout: word of advice, glycerine is not a good idea when your hittin' your back hard like a workout today,
I had the worst back pumps almost as bad as superdrol pumps ouch!
SupA sets! 60 sec rest, 5x8
A1 Wide Grip Pullups = not a problem
A2 Reverse Lunges = again, pumps in the lower back, not a prob.
B1 DB Push Press = i dont use a belt, i dont believe in them, feeling some indrect work on the erctors haha
B2 Single Legged Deads! = Alert! Alert! the pumps got rediculous
Overall, solid workout, im just not gunna run glycerine on days where im gettin a lot of work on the lower back

Decent workout today, i worked out with a buddy of mine, kinda slowed my pace down bit, but i managed to try to speed things up
workout looked like this:
6x3 super sets 60 sec rest
A1 Zercher Squat
A2 Weighted Chins
B1 DB Romanian Dead lifts
B2 Decline Bench Press
couple of notes: i upped the weight on Zercher squats quite a bit, i'm much more comfortable with them now tha i was earlier in this program. The load wasn't really that bad, but it's the manipulation of the arm placement under the bar that makes it akward. Also, Romanian Deadlifts went up about 10 lbs. as well, stil felt light, so i'll modify my next workout for these needs. Decline Bench press was a little of a let down, i havent done a pressing movement with the bar in about 5-6 weeks. Back than i weighed around 182ish, so it was a bit of let down that i couldn't bench as much
*** It's times like these that i think it's important to remember that in order to achieve our long term goals, we have to set realistic short term goals. I had to kind of remind myself that its lean mass, low bf% im going for right now. The strength gains can come later.
*** patience is the essence of achievement.

****ty workout today felt pretty exhausted during the workout, pretty sure its because the meal prior to my preworkout was my P+F snack, i usally go with the p+c meal about 1.5 hour before my preworkout drink, im gunna try to get some more sleep tonight, see if that helps
3rd cheat meal today: 2 slices of cheese pizza covered in shrooms and spinach.... hhhyeah i was trippin' ballz.. jk
02-26-2008, 12:47 PM
solid workout last night
6x3 super set
Lat pulls wide grip
Dumbbell romaninan deads
Notes: Zercher Squats went up
DB romaninan deads went up
dropped the weight for dips to really use good form
Food intake has been fine, notice an increase of hunger which is expected when your doing HFT, sorness minimal usally feel it towards the end of the week. I thnk the use of mesadosing fish oil and megadosing the BCAA, along with total calorie intake is contributing to that
Feeling a little softer, but i'll lose it on the next phase
will post later
02-27-2008, 11:32 PM
Ight guys haven't done a through job of updating lately just been busy with school, work and sh!t, so here it goes:
First off just a quick note, the clean bulking is coming nicely, the weight is really coming on! LIke fast! i'm a little worried that a lot of it could be fat, i still got about 1.5 weeks left on phase 2. The majority of my calories have been clean, other than the cheat meals waterbury says to eat through out the week, total of 3. And while, i've tried to keep these calories fairly clean, turkey, roast beef, ham subs, etc. i may need to rethink my total calorie intake on these cheat meals. Cut the portions down a bit. Another thing, im gunna do is stay away from the FREAKING SCALE until weigh-ins, that could be an issue as well pshycologically I see these numbers, but i gotta remember there just F!CKING numbers! Too many variables to consider (grief).
Another note, i've had a huge increase of appetite this week, this is obviously side effect of the HFT (five full body workouts a week) which is very demanding. While i manage to eat about every 2.5 to 3 hours, it seems, like i'm craving my next meal every 1.5 hours later.
I'm considering supplementing with some e/c stack, too kill the appetite, what you guys think of that?? i know e/c has some catabolic effects, but quite frankly, im killing the calories right now, and the bcaa's to where i should be alright
I've also noticed a decrease in sorness. I have gotten very little soreness during this phase, which is nuts! u would think training five days a week would kill u, but its had the complete opposite effect, my workouts have been more intense and stronger! My weights have consistenly gone up every workout. I'm sure the calorie intake, and macro breakdown is also helping.
training update: tonight i did 5x8 super set 60 sec. rest
Wide grip pullups
Shoulder Press (switched up from push press)
single leg deads
solid workout, no complains here. I decided to give shoulder press a try, ive been doin push press the past four weeks on 5x8(including from phase 1)
03-01-2008, 05:11 PM
Woke up this morning, took my morning piss, and stepped on the scale 172 lbs. So far i'm up about 4 pounds since the beginning of phase 2. One more week of phase 2, and then i will begin phase 3
Workouts have been great, i really believe HFT is a great way to increase size/strength as quick as possible, as long as your getting enough sleep and your getting enough calories you'll deff pack on some serous mass in just a couple of weeks. I got one more week im hoping to put on another pound or pound.5 which is deff. possible since the last 4 days of this phase = no training. EAT! EAT! EAT!
i'll be taking some measurements next saturday at the end of this phase.
03-01-2008, 05:21 PM
03-05-2008, 07:31 AM
getting real close to the end of phase 2, it's coming along pretty good, ive noticed my sleep has been off lately, like im having trouble sleeping as much as i used to, but the thing is i feel pretty energized throughout the day. Occasionally i take a nap in the afternoon, that could be it. Today is my last workout for phase 2
supersets of 5x8
A2 reverse lunge
B1 shoulder press
B2 single leg deads
After this workout i will have about four days to recover and rest, and pretty much be lazy.
Will be weighing in saturday morning, and i will be posting some measurements as well, no pics will be up cause honestly its only been 3 weeks, i rather wait for a more dramatic transformation
Phase 3 begins on sunday:
nutrition basically gets cut in half, snack are halved, removal of fruits from main meals
I will still be dosing with BCAA, although I will be using much smaller doses through out the day, instead of high concentrations around my workout and sleep.
I'll be running an E/C stack all 3 weeks, usallly i only run the e/c stack for about a week into a diet, but im gunna try to stick it out for three weeks
Training will consists of:
3 circuit style unilateral fullbody training, as the date gets closer i will go in more depth what exactly this looks like
as well as some HIIT on tuesdays and thurdays

I started a slightly modified velocity diet yesterday...
here are the links to the original articles in 2005

End of Phase 2
Thigh L/R: 24/24
Calf L/R: 15.75/15.75
Upper Abs: 33
Upper Arm L/R: 14.625/14.5
Upper Abs: 33.25
Upper Arm: same
Total increase of weight for phase 2: 4.4 lbs.
03-09-2008, 11:11 AM
Today begins the first day of phase 3. The calorie cutting begins. It's gunna be tough gettin rid of all that fruit from my diet. In order to kill my apetite i will be using an ECA stack. I'll probably be dosing this 2-3 times a day. I'm also gunna add some NEPA walks to this phase to help with the fat loss. I'll be performing NEPA walks everyday for the next three weeks. From my expeirence with NEPA walks there a great way to increase work capacity, and there actually very energizing and relaxing.
Here's a template of how my diet will look like the next 3 weeks:
can of tuna
mixed veggies or stir fry veggies
2 teaspoons of fish oil
acai berries 2 tbls. spoons
handful of almonds/mixed nuts
turkey/roastbeef with asssorted veggies
handful of mixed nuts/almonds (i think im gunna limit the amount of cheese during snacks, i always seem to have difficult digesting cheese)
TRAINING DAYS = pre/post workout drink
non training days = salmon with a sh!t load of spinach
2 teaspoons of fishoil
2 tablespoons of acai berries
peppermint tea (kill some apetite and quite refreshing)
right before sleep: 100 grams of dark chocolate with 10 grams of BCAA
the training gunna be:
3 unilateral circuit training = M,W,F
2 lactic acid inducing sprint/biking = T,TH
NEPA walks 25-40 min. = Everyday
I have 2 schedule cheat meals a week one on tuesday and the other on saturday. These meals will most likely be clean, with the addition of some complex carbs, for example: a nice sub
Week1 i will be voiding all cheat meals because yesterday i had a huge cheat meal (chick Fil A sandwach and huge milkshake) to finish off phase 2. I feel like my leptin levels have sky rocketed back to normal, therefore cheat meals won't be necessary for the first week.
Notes about Phase 2:
Phase 2 was pretty rough, the high frequency training will deff. catch up to u around the end of week two. I was constantly hungry even though i was taking a surplus of calories. People were saying i looked pale in the face and really tierd. The four days off at the end is a BLESSING. This quick break allows your body to recover from the harsh training u had to go through the past 2.5 weeks. Expect to put on at least 1.5 to 2 pounds in just these four days. Sleep kicked ass during the past 2 days, averaged about 9.5 hours of sleep a night, apetite is slowly going back to normal again, and i've gained color back in my face.
Phase 2 was a success. I put on a decent amount of weight the past 3 weeks. Although i do not believe all of it is lean mass, some seems to be fat, as ive lost some rippness and vascularity. I can't wait for the end of phase 3! That's when i'll really start seeing some results!
03-10-2008, 11:20 PM
Just got back from the first workout of phase 3, it looked like this
8x3 unilateral circuit training
rest: 30 secs between sets
A1 one-arm lat pulldown
A2 one-arm dumbbell bench press
A3 single-leg dumbbell deadlift
note: u perform each movement with the weaker limb first, do not hold dumbbell on other side, instead force your core to stabilize the movement, no rest between limbs
I knocked out this workout with a pretty good pace, kept the intensity up, i had to figure out what weight to use, so i will adjust next week, overall solid workout i like the idea of unilateral trianing, hits the core really well, especially one-arm dumbbell presses
food intake was minimal today, sucks having to knockout all that fruit. The ECA is deff. helping, its the intial days that are the worst when your leaning out, cause your stomach has to adjust and shrink down to size. Also, low carb diets have such a diuretic effect, already noticing my face is looking draw
03-12-2008, 11:13 PM
Phase 3, second workout:
unilateral circuit training: 5x8, 45 seconds rest
A1 1 arm (standing) DB shoulder press
A2 1 arm bent DB row
A3 single leg DB deadlifts
A4 pistol squats
solid workout, my obliques were so sore from the first workout. Seriously, if u wanna stimulate your core, like u've never done before, drop the situps, drop the leg lifts, sh!t drop the deadlifts for that matter, and do one of these unilateral workouts! nuts!
03-14-2008, 12:59 AM
horrible day today...
i felt soo sh!tty, the past couple of days ive grown increasingly sluggish, i had trouble sleeping last night, i kept on waking up! fcuk! I was so grouchy at work, anybody who walked into the store, i just wanted to wring their neck! on top of that i had to freaking study for a midterm for tommarow!
i think i may have to modify this diet. I'm thinking some sort of complex carbs with lean protein first thing in the morning, to help me get through the day. I'll try this out for the next couple of days, if this doesnt work, im switching out of waterbury's diet plan and I will be using Joel Marion's cheat to lose priming phase plan.
personally this plan may better be suited for me, week one is low carb/high fat, high protein meals, week 2 low glycemic load carbs (certains fruits/legumes)/moderate fat, high protein meals, week 3 moderate glycemic load (certain starches), low fat, high protein meal. If i do start this plan it won't be til prob. sunday. I'll go head and finish up the week with waterbury's diet plan
Increased carb intake, which i think my body is desperatlely in need of
No more cheat meals throughout the week
5 meals instead of six meals
... im starting to think the v-diet to 10/10 transformation is paying a toll on my body. I hope these adjustments will help. Although, i'm tweaking this diet, the training is still on 100%
03-14-2008, 09:09 AM
Could the waking up at night be because of the ECA? You taking it late at night?
Seems like you were getting some awesome results but if you arent functioning right then its probably time to switch things up
03-14-2008, 01:29 PM
part of the problem with waterbury's diet plan, is the use of green veggies at each meal.
Many experts like beardi and thibs over at t-nation, say certain veggies like spinach, brocolli, celery, peppers, contain so much fiber, that your body barely absorbs the calorie content found in these veggies. Thibs even sugggests when counting calories, to not even count green veggies. With that being said, im going to continue with waterbury's plan, becuase your right, i was gettin really good results with it; i plan on incorporating more variety of veggies, some with some calorie content, carrots, some peas etc. I think my sluggishness lately was caused by this.
ON workout days i will incorprate small amount of complex carbs in the morning prob. half cup of oat bran with some whey.
I think this will be a better option, so that im not completely ditching waterbury's plan.
I think part of the waterbury's plan is that is really simple. Convient? yes. but it's so simple, that certain issues, such as the one i spoke of above do not get answereed
so to recap: i will continue with waterbury's diet plan for the rest of phase 3.
03-14-2008, 01:34 PM
The anabolic stack is working pretty nasty for me. I now its probably mostly cosmetic and from some other things im doing but Im pretty pump'd all day long. I'm doing....
5gr Creatine Mono
Down at least 32oz water
