    Thanks, wasme. Yeah, the pain is pretty bad at this point. Trying to move after sitting down for a while is a big struggle and I've had to grab on to something a few times to avoid dropping to the ground. The slightest wrong move (or no move at all) feels like being stabbed in the spine.



    Here's an afternoon meal:

    *chicken breast, egg whites, omega eggs, spinach, chili garlic sauce (very spicy), fresh cracked black pepper, sea salt, red palm oil (used a small amount to cook eggs/fats will increase in a few weeks)

    I'm consuming 475g carbs today, but they're being kept to peri-workout and my final meal of the day (when training in morning). My carb intake will be much higher eventually (double and more on some days ) and they'll be spread out more throughout the day.

    ^^ I like this stuff better than regular Sriracha. I assume this is what Breezy is talking about, and yeah, it's pretty spicy.

    Yup, it's been a reoccurring issue for 10+ years. It usually gets aggravated once or twice a year and it's always something random that sets it off. I've never had the pain start while lifting or doing anything physical...last time I was tying my shoe. Thanks, will do.

    It's store bought and you probably need it.

    Thanks man. If I do any training, it'll be light arms with the majority being occlusion work.

  8. My back is feeling better, but not 100%. I was able to train arms yesterday and hit chest/shoulders today. My gym just got a ton of new equipment (and didn't get rid of any), so there was a lot of new machines that I could try, which were easy on my back. In addition to every plate loaded HS machine, there is now all of the "weight stack" MTS HS machines as well. There's a chance that my gym now has more equipment than any gym in history lol.

    I don't remember exactly what was done for arms yesterday, but it included some machine and occlusion work. Here's one of the new HS machines, which was easily the best bicep machine that I've ever used. The tension it provided and the contraction I could get was amazing for a machine. My elbows are actually positioned up above chin level, which is hard to tell from the short clip. I went back and used it for a bi/tri occlusion superset as well.

  9. Here's today's session


    Banded MTS HS Incline Press
    2 warm-up sets of 10
    5 sets of 8 (working up until failing to get 8)

    -I looped bands around the handles and under the bar running along the bottom of the machine. It provided a ton of extra tension and I preferred it over the banded plate loaded HS press.





    Banded Smith Incline Press
    6 sets: 20, 15, 12, 10, 8, 6 + 8 (drop)

    -planned on reverse band incline, but forgot the Pro Light bands



    Incline DB Flye-Press
    3 sets of 10 with drops to standard banded DB flyes


    Lying Rear Delt Raises

    4 sets working up: 25, 15, 10, 8 + 10 (drop)

    -focused on hinging at shoulders to keep tension on rear delts, as opposed to upper/mid back




    10 and 2 O'Clock Laterals
    4 sets of 8

    -to eye level/ slow and controlled eccentric


    Rear Delt Extensions
    3 sets of 10

    -cable/ D-handle attachment


    Reverse HS Machine Press
    3 sets of 8

    4 second eccentric/ 2 sec pause /explosive concentric to lockout /2 second flex

  10. While trying to figure out why there hasn't been any competition pictures posted I came across this:




    I don't understand how the NPC (or whoever) could drop the ball like that, especially at a big show, which I found out had 500+ (now pissed off) competitors (24 in my height class). I believe there were at least 4 BB media outlets there as well, but apparently none brought a photographer.


    Hopefully, I can find some pics from one of the other competitors at some point. Either way, my weight has been sitting at 222lbs for the last few days and look forward to competing as a bodybuilder.

    Wicked weak. I know NPC news, FLEX, and RX Muscle were there doing/filming interviews. They probably should have made a phone call in the morning when they realized there were no photographers. The show didn't end until around midnight and it's not like it was in the middle of nowhere either.

    Me too. Just picture a 210lb guy with a 36" waist standing next to 160-185lb guys with 26"-30" waists lol.

    A lot of the guys looked pretty big for their size and definitely had the "physique" look. I've come to realize that I can't pull that off very well with my build, especially if I can't use a side pose. Trying to look beastly and flexing, as opposed to standing and trying to look pretty, seems like a lot more fun too.

    Not a good picture, but this guy took 2nd in my class (great kid and one of the heavier competitors at 185lbs). I believe the guy that took 1st was around 180lbs and had been training for 2 years.




    I think this was part of the 1st call outs in the height class below mine. The guy on the right is in his 50's:

    Haha yeah. I randomly met his "good friend" the other day and that's what I was told (a lot of supplementation too). That guy is in e****lent shape. There was another 50+ guy in the HW bodybuilding class that looked amazing as well.

    Yup, not very cool.

    Thanks man, I hope to do pretty well.

    Lol nice. That's after dropping a notch on my belt too.




    No gym today, as I'll be working shortly and until the gym is closed. Hopefully, my back continues to improve, but I'll be on my feet all day, which probably won't help.



    Edit: Here's the older BB. It'd be great to be in that condition at any age.

    Yeah, I could see him winning a few classes and possibly overall at some shows, but don't think he even won anything in Masters.

    Yeah, he's all ripped up. I'll try to make someone show up next time.





    I had a great back session this morning. I'm still being cautious and avoiding certain exercises, but that hasn't prevented me from having effective workouts.


    Pull-Ups
    3 sets wide pronated
    3 sets wide neutral




    Prone Cable Rows
    3 sets upper back
    2 sets mid back
    2 sets lower back

    All of the new equipment at my gym has sparked my creativity lately and inspired new exercises and/or variations. I currently have about 50 things that I'd like to try in the next couple months. Theses rows were just awesome. I worked 3 different angles and destroyed every inch of my back, from top to bottom. This is probably my new favorite way to target upper back and I'll continue using all the angles going forward.



    Here's a video showing the 3 rowing angles used, targeting each part of my back:







    HS MTS Low Row
    3 sets of 10

    -supinated grip

    -same idea as plate loaded machine (bending over to pick up plates could be an issue, so these machines are a great option)




    DB Pullovers
    2 sets of 12

    -performing these wasn't an issue, but I chose to slide off the bench, instead of bending forward to get up and possible aggravating my lower back




    Stretchers
    3 sets of 10




    HS MTS High Row
    2 sets both arms at once: pumping style
    2 sets single arm: hard 2 second flex

    -pronated grip

    Plenty of volume, but nothing too "big" or "heavy". It goes along with my plan for the next few weeks anyways. After going hard all prep, sessions will be more pumping style and higher volume, while my calories climb. I'll finally have a few off days too.

    Thanks man, trying to get the most out of every rep . The contraction with these was awesome and I'll definitely keep them in the rotation. I thought about trying different bar attachments, but the single handles couldn't have worked any better.

    I haven't, but will look into it when I get home tonight. It's been improving and hopefully will be good by the end of the week. Haha yup, that's the last thing I want.

    What is your plan for days off? It seemed during prep you weren't taking many rest days at all. (1 per week or so?)

    I don't have anything set in stone, but will probably train 5 days per week for now (if I can force myself to take 2 days off). That's because I literally didn't have any. 7 days per week all prep and didn't miss a single session. That's why I hardly did any cardio as well. Meadows style.

  30. I trained legs this morning. I was ready to hit arms if my back couldn't handle it, but everything that I attempted went smoothly. Reps were on the higher end and the weight used was pretty light. That said, the session was still brutal.


    HS Kneeling Leg curl
    6 sets of 12-15 reps



    Banded Hack Squats
    machine x25
    bands x25
    50 + bands x20 + 10 count isotension
    90 + bands x20 + 10 count isotension
    90 + bands x17 + 10 count isotension + bands x5 + 7 count rest (lockout) + bands x 4

    -constant tension

    -heels close together, toes pointed out on block, driving with balls of feet (until final band only reps)

    -4th set band only: 5 second eccentric, pause in hole, explosive concentric to 3/4 lockout





    Here's the big finale. This was torture and I haven't been able to think straight since. Loved it though.







    Sissy Squat (stand)
    3 sets of 8 reps

    -5 second eccentric

    -arms out / leaning back
