I weighed in at 169, but forgot to take the BF! Or maybe I didnt want to know.
The game plan is to get control of meal timing and planning. I will reduce carbs slighty on arm days, and off days. The goak is to know lose 1 pound of fat every two weeks. So, every other week I will post my BW and BF.

Note: New supplement that I am using is Anabolic Pump by USP Labs. After a few days specificaly today, I feel muscle fullness most of the day. And the last few workouts, I have been moving more weight in comparision to last year at the same weight. Pretty cool so far.

Prior to my last chest workout, my left shoulder was acting up. I injuried it many years ago and on occasion it flares up. Well, its flaring up. Last Chest training, I was able to have a nice workout. Going into todays, I was cautious and carefull. I may skip my next chest training to give it more rest, since it only hurt with pressing movements.

Friday, December 01, 2006

Well, the nice thing about bodybuilding and training, is the option to mix things up! In that case, I had a change of heart and I started the volume training again. Back to the 5 day split. Now, I know I had said that I was going to finish the Dc training, and it felt great. But for now, I thought it through, and going back to the 5 day split will be best for me as my pro show debut is less than a year away.

In other news, I reached a goal of mine. I will be sponsored by USPLabs!

Rest day.

Chest Delt Tri:

Mid Inc Db Press: 75/8,5,4

Just logged the working sets, either DC or straight sets.

Single Calf Raise: 45/8,5,5 rest pause
Leg Curl: 40/9,5,5 rest pause
Squat: 225/6 245/6,7 straigt sets

The great thing about this workout, is that the quads have to do all the work as the calves and hams are fried! Therefore the legs are nicely warmed up but the same time its harder.

Again, I am not writing the warm ups sets, but I will dictate which sets are rest pause or straight normal tempo sets. The bigger lifts will be straigt normal tempo sets for the fact of safety!

Sunday, November 19, 2006

Well, I thought it was time to mix things ups.

After doing a sucessful 4 day split for about two months, I have started the DoggCrapp Training. I have done this two times in the past and it is intense for sure! I know a lot of you think my workouts are short, but wait until you see what I do. But the key is all out intensity with 6 second negatives and combined with 3 rest pause sets that means only 15 to 20 sec rest between each set. For the next two months I will be doing the DC training and will only list the working sets.

Please email me if you have any questions on the training or the log itself

I didn't train for 3 days due to going to Baltimore to support a client in his show. In addition, I had a chance to spend time with the family as we enjoyed the inner harbor. After missing a few workouts, I am now renewed and focused on hopes to doing a pro show next year. It will either be the Cape Cod or DC show. It's go time! And I will leave it at that with keeping my workouts intense and each one driven to looking my best.

My plan is to compete in a Pro Show with in the next 2 years, but the focus over the next few months is to go basic and build muscle. I think my condition is up to par for the bigs, but I need a more size. I will continue to post workouts but not until Wednesday, as I will take off a few days.

I must give credit to dieting over a long period of time because strength has not decreased like in years past. Of course I am not as strong 20 pounds ago, but the strength is still good. And now that the body fat is low, I still need to be careful since the joints are not as cushioned.

Quads:

Strange workout due to stiffness in both knees. I led off with squats, in which I have not in almost two months. At that time, I was doing mid 300's for reps, and 385 for a double. Today, 275 felt like a ton. It just shows you that the body loses adaptation as fast as it gets it. All in all is was still a decent workout.

Leg Press: 2 warms 450/9,10 1 drop
