Yeah I’d echo the above mate, really coming on great. Arms looking meaty and leaning out really well. Excited to see where you end up

This is almost best you ever looked, except maybe that picture from few years ago you once posted. I wouldnt chase the weight if I was you (trying to be heavier), I think you will place better even if you are few lbs lighter but overall your conditioning is better.

I weighed myself today, down to 220lbs (but not lean as you of course). I mean, it is kinda low for me, but i am not fussed, i reckon hey, it is good to have my body take a break from being muscular and then hit harder once quarantine clears.

I dont workout with weights as i am too cheap to buy the set for at home use as i can train in the gym for free (once it opens of course) so I do bodyweight stuff with band resistance.

Inverted rows (pullup bar between a desk and a cupboard 😀), band resisted pushups, lunges and lateral raises with dumbbells.

I totally agree. I’m likely going to just slowly put on size from where I end up. I love being leaner and don’t want to lose it.

When are you adding in more supplements and what doses
Last 6-8 weeks is gonna be Tren Var T3 and Clen. But that’s about all I know. This next week is still just 2iu GU, 500 test, 400 mast, gda post workout , Vasoburn pre cardio. And then just the usuals vitamin taurine creatine glutamine bcaa and whey. 2300off days/2800cals training days

I’m also secretly adding in proviron 50/day, Cardarine 10-20/day and more mast regardless of it being prescribed by my trainer the last 30 days prior to comp.

Will be interesting to see how you tolerate tren. Do you know what dose he will have you on? I hope he puts you on ace.

Tren should really help preserve that muscle while taking T3.

And it probably is going to be rough with no estrogen in your system but unfortunately that is what you gotta do pre contest.

At what point do you paint the "S" on your chest? Are you going to log throughout your entire prep? May be an invaluable tool for some of us that hope to tackle this accomplishment in the next several years.

Looking stellar...keep it up brother. Are you still dropping kratom through this process?

He’s conservative so I’d be shocked if he even gets it to 400. Ace, already have it at the ready.

Oh stop it Beaphy.
Ya, I haven’t been logging because we haven’t had a need to do much. Workouts are just pushups pull-ups dips resistance bands. Drugs have stayed the same largely for 6-7 weeks. Mast Test GH. And all he’s done so far is add cardio, and drop cals to 2800/2300 with no refeeds. That brought me from 240ish to now. The last two weeks have only been 1lb loss but I believe he is plenty happy for where we are at for 12 weeks. The deficit or cardio is definitely going to get changed up here soon, and I’ll be logging every single adjustment he makes all the way to the day of the show. It may be applicable to some, but keep in mind, it’s different from what a open class bodybuilder would do since MP they don’t want quite as lean. Hopefully we learn a lot about the process.

Getting vascular.
C0678E51-5835-45A5-ACE8-F9EAA98E77CF.jpg

Side by side from August last year 237 and last week 217.
I will be getting our 8.5 weeks out Plans tonight/tomorrow. New training new drugs new meal plan new fat burners added.
The first half of prep was mast @400 test @550
GH 2iu/day. It should start to get really good considering what we’ve done with so little so far.

You got good genetics for pec shape. Square chest.

Shoulders are looking good.

arms and chest look fantastic 😀

Legs seem stubborn 😐


Similar situation to mine. However my legs got smaller due to at home workouts. Lots of opportunity to do chinups, dips, resisted pushups, inverted rows, dumbbell work... somehow those lunges get neglected 😆

But my calves are eternally small. They are roughly 17 inches and they look like sticks at 197cm of height.

And aas didnt seem to help my legs at all. Mk surprisingly, however, did seem to help.

I don’t remember if you already said this but what’s your pro, carbs and fat intake in those 2800 cals?
