  1. Punthra's Contest Prep (DC Style Journey to the stage next June)

    Well I'm starting my contest prep really early as i will be logging my bulk and my actual prep. I plan on doing a bulk, a practice cut, one more bulk (Rebound), and finally my actual contest prep. I will be using a advanced DC training program, as the basic just didn't suit my needs.


    Workout A

    Incline Hammer Strength Presses (11-15reps) Rest/Pause
    Upright Rows (11-20reps) Rest/Pause
    Incline Skullcrushers (20-30reps) Rest/Pause

    Workout B

    Wide Grip Pulldowns (11-15reps) Rest/Pause
    Rack Deadlifts (6-9reps) + (9-12reps) Straight Sets
    Preacher Curls (11-20reps) Rest/Pause
    Reverse Grip One Arm Cable Curls (10-20reps) Straight Sets

    Workout C

    Seated Calf Raises (10reps) DC Style
    Lying Leg Curls (15-30reps) Rest/Pause
    Hack Squats (6-10reps) + (20rep Widowmaker)

    DC stretching will obviously be used as it is a key component of DC

    plan on adding supplements in as needed (microdrol will be ran at the end of september when my training is in rhythm)

    basic supplements such as creatine, fish oil, and protein will obviously be used

    i don't plan on writing out my meal plan as i have someone looking after that and it is just to much damn writing

    Anyways I hope you follow along as i could use the support and any advice that anyone can throw out.....I also plan on posting pics occasionally to show how my progress is coming along (please don't hesitate to comment as I need all the help I can get as it is my first time trying to compete in a bodybuilding competition)


    Height - 5'11
    Weight - 234 (remember i've been away from the gym for 2 weeks and have been eating crappy on purpose to allow my body to rebound)
    Training Experience - 7 years (4 serious)

    Hope you enjoy the ride and wish me luck on my jouney.

  2. Workout A

    Incline Hammer Strength Presses 360x9 / x3 / x1
    Upright Rows 155x11 / x4 / x3 (Didn't feel that strong on this exercise)

    - strength was pretty good for not training for two weeks and on a crappy diet

  10. Your fukkin strong bro. In for the win Punthra. LET'S DO THIS! Make that logbook your b!tch!
    ...GMG760 Version 2.0 ... Back from the dead.

  14. Nice workout... can't wait until I can do 270 on lats. Unfortunatley my gym's machine only goes to 240. I'm about 20 lbs away, and I wonder what will happen by the end of my next DC blast... may need to find a new gym. Which sucks because i love mine.
    ...GMG760 Version 2.0 ... Back from the dead.

  15. Use the pins to hold weight on the machine....that's how i was able to do 325 on close grip pulldowns. I'm sure 240 is definitely within reach for you!

  16. You, sir....are a monster! Nice job on those rack deads!

  17. Thanks Rantorcha!

    Workout C

    Seat Calf Raises (DC Style) 110x10

    Seated Leg Curls 195x11 / x4 / x2

    Hack Squats 600x7 / 400x20

    - pump was excruciating for calf raises

  18. Seriously. I think calves are what I dread most these days. The seconds seem to slow down around rep 8-9...
    ...GMG760 Version 2.0 ... Back from the dead.

  19. The cramping is the absolute worst! But my calves are fried the next day so it must mean they are growing....right?

  20. It's the only calf routine that has made a difference in my calf growth, which is ridiculously slow.
    ...GMG760 Version 2.0 ... Back from the dead.

  21. hack squats with 560.... jesus.

  22. I couldn't do this much on a sled but that's how much i can do on the hammer strength hack squat.

  23. What's the difference?
    ...GMG760 Version 2.0 ... Back from the dead.

  24. it's more of a squat on a pivot point....just seems easier.
