Bulking '12 Season Full swing
- 10-15-2012, 07:33 AM
No I bodybuild although I woud love to get into a powerlifting event one day. Ugh, gives me migranes I've never experienced before to where I can't finish a workout. The only time I couldn't deal with the stims. I saw it more for bulking - does well but, for the money, I found other things that suit me better. I dedicate Sundays to football and mass cooking sessions.By believing passionately in something that still does not exist, we create it. The nonexistent is whatever we have not sufficiently desired.

Mmmm food porn.
For size gains? This season I went with IGF2/NeoVar/TestoPro, RPM/Hemavol preworkout, I also keep Gut Health, Liver 40, and Lipo-PM as staples year round. Universal Real Gains as my weight gainer. I have Erase and never used it. I can dig out the before/after pictures. When I'm willing to open the wallet Chaotic Labz Annihilate is the most baller natty T boost I've ever ran.

ahhhh good to be back! if you missed out on my lulzy anabeta/endosurge log you can check it out here

Well i will get a retuning weight tonight before heavy squat day. In case you need a recap you can check out my final post in the supp log to see whats been going on the last month or so. As for late, ive been eating a very very good diet. Pushing 4k calories every day logged with myplate and of course food pr0n! I started on PHAT and am loving it! As layne as noted with his routine it can be tweaked and modified as much or as little as you would like in order to find what works best for you. I think the program style is awesome! Alternating heavy and hypertrophy on a bi-weekly basis! I dont change the rep range, just the exercises (however keeping compounds and isolations where they need to be based on laynes advice)
Heavy Squat workout tonight! Its good to be back and i welcome and thank everyone on my journey as i bulk from 155 to 200! Updated pics coming soon!

This is my last week of school. Im excited to be done and ready to focus completely on BULKING!!! (even though im doin work right now)
With the rough schedule comes a long ass workout tonight. Did Chest, Shoulders, Traps and Tris hypertrophy.
Upper body power was saturday so everything was a little tender but i knew i would be taking a good amount of rest days off so here it goes.
65s x 10, 75s x 10, 85s x 8, 70s x 10
Incline BB bench
135 x 12, 10, 10 PR reps
40s x 12, 12

Chest Press Machine
3 sets of 12
Dips BW x 20, 20
Seated Smith machine military press (never going back to this)
115 x 10, 135 x 10, 8, 8
20s x 12, 12
25s x 12PR, 12PR <---- PRs on DB flys, making gains everywhere!!!

50 + ez x 12 SS last set with 10 explosive dips
Center Press Down SS Outer Underhand Grip Press Down
8 then 12 superset, reversing the order every set for 3 sets
This workout was "sickening". LOL not once was i tired. I was pumped and fatigued like HELL but not once did i want to sell any rep, set or exercise short. I absolutely LOVE bulking on 4k calories. Im not stopping this bulk any time soon. Just picked up ON WHEY. Been using chocolate for years but i switched to vanilla and its the ****! Vanilla all the whey!
Obviously with bulking comes a little fat gain, but im not worried one bit. Ive never had a problem loosing fat and im not gaining much of it anyways except around the waist. I know that im gonna have to up the calories when i add a little more weight but right now 4k is the number to beat! Im just high on life right now. If i can continue this to 200 it will be my first successful consistent bulk.
Weight: 180 FUK YES!

Nice workout man. Kill it! I'll be glad to get next week over with.
12-06-2012, 04:01 AM
Last day tomorrow! I'm pumped.Originally Posted by CountryLiftin
Had a kinda ok ish workout tonight??? Only reason it wasn't good was cause my bis were taking all the load on every exercise! Hopefully they will grow due to the pure stress.
Numbers seemed down too. Not post worthy. Except the weighted pullup sets i did
BW + 25 x 4, 4, 3 (205lbs total)
When I got fed up with trying to hit the back at different angles I just went and did some high volume work for bis and fatigued the Fuk out of them till they were popping out of my skin and hopefully next back day will be more productive.
12-06-2012, 09:12 AM
Nice man just keep putting in the hard work and focus. A bad day is just that. Don't worry about it.
12-07-2012, 03:56 PM
everything will resume saturday as i will gear up for a full on focused bulk. i want atleast 20lbs during my 3 months off. shooting for 190 by Jan 15th and 200 by March 16th (my bday)! Im going to track every single calorie starting saturday starting with 4k and possibly uping to 4.5k towards the end of feb. Im gonna switch off phat for a while and go back to undulated 4 day split and give my body more rest that it needs. Gonna be starting it off strong with heavy legs saturday afternoon! Soo pumped! Gonna be a nice bulk ladies and gents!
More details later! For now....
12-07-2012, 04:45 PM
4 shocks tops sounds like a good mass builder just drink lots of water if you are gona drink. I am usually only drinking liquor if I am drinking which I don't do much at school, obviously. Just hydrate and your usually gona be all good, I haven't had any issues, or hangover. Most I had was this drink we made a few weeks ago, I ended up getting around 7-8 shots of vlad in 30 mins, lol. That was a bit iffy, but a fun night!
I thought you were gona tell me the girls wanted to celebrate so you burnt off some extra calories! hahaha.
12-07-2012, 07:04 PM

this is my goal physique in about a year. depending on how my bulk goes i might be able to get to something close by end of summer. Obviously this is just an aesthetic goal. Once i hit my appearance goal im going full strength retard hahaha
12-07-2012, 07:10 PM
The workout sounds good, personally I don't think you can go wrong as long as you push hard every workout, don't overtrain, and don't get stagnant with your workouts.
Lifting heavy is great but can take its toll. I have done a lot of high reps lately, I did mostly heavy this week though, it was great. The reps are obviously working. I have a huge chest as is so I don't have your problem. I just need to get the tris and shoulders up to speed. mostly tri. Sounds nice dude that is sweet, enjoy it! I haven't had shock top personally. Haha that sounds good, yes vlad is cheap vodka, made a new drink with arnie palmer and koolaide about half and half with the vodka. Its like 60 proof. Although I am not sure what exactly I got that night. Water is like all important... lol. Gota love those ab workouts! hahaha
I gave up physique ^ goals a while back, I just let them come and focus on getting strong and big as possible. Eat good, and lots of it, work hard and smart, let the gains come. I can't get lean enough and big enough to look that cut unless I do LG, and while some guys like it for building muscle I just can't seem to get enough food in to grow the way I'd like. I love it for cutting up though. Right now I just love where I am at with everything.
You are well on your way man just keep putting in the work.

busy, about to go to our varsity game (i coach JV) but in the mean time check out the grocery shopping. didnt lay out all the carbs, just the proteinz

Yea man i agree, i just watched laynes video on over training and how to maximize High Intensity and Over-reaching. I will be implementing his tactics for the duration of the bulk. I will start out over-reaching with heavy heavy workouts (gonna do alot more singles, tripples and negatives along with crazy high reps drop sets and rest pause on the B weeks etc). Then deload and go super low volume.
I wish i had more of everything! Especially chest like yours! In due time! I will become a beast. A 200lb ecto is comin like a freight train! Well i hope you enjoy the drinking because im not gonna be doing alot of it. But arnold palmers remind me of boating season! Every dam day on the boat wakeboarding and drinkin arnold palmers hahaa
I cant wait to get me some ab workouts son! Well the grass is always greener on the other side right? Strength goals are fun and much easier to track than physique goals. Physique is an art. Strength is just pure hell! Well i will be one of those guys eating a ton on LG and hoping to take full advantage of both directions in size and leaness. However, i know all i need to do to get lean is eat maintenance and increase my activity a little bit while combining solid fun workouts!
Im glad you like where your at man! Thats the entire goal of what we do. To be happy with ourselves. Its what drives us to work harder and preform better!
Bulking at its finest
