    Sweet progress pics man! Echo what everyone has said about conditioning. You did an amazing job getting only 10lbs over, so mad props there!

    I agree a bit with what Josh said about gaining a little quicker. I'm the first one to say that keeping the weight gain down is a great thing, however I think 10lbs in 6 months MAY be a little slow imo. Obviously you know what you're doing, but I think a LITTLE extra cushion could really bump your lifts up a lot and give your physique a nice push to grow.

    Thanks! I actually takled to Alberto about this yesterday since he is one of the big reasons I'm taking this approach this offseason. He told me he thought I was exactly where I should be, I nailed my reverse, and I'm in a really good place. He suggested, if anything, I slow my weight gain moving forward so I think I will just stick to gaining slowly up to 180lbs and see what I look like once I get there.

    Thanks! It hasn't always been easy, but hearing from guys like Ben Esgro, Alberto Nunez, Eric Helms etc. that I'm sitting in a really good place right now is definately some good reassurance that I'm doing things right.

    Thanks! I am really fortunate to have good relationships with many people in this sport I have a lot of respect for such as Layne, Eric Helms, Berto, Brian Ahlstrom, Ben Esgro, Conner LaValle, etc. and am even more fortunate that they are willing to give me some good honest feedback. There are really a lot of good people in this sport. And yea the pizza was awesome! It was my wife's refeed day and she put down 3/4 of another one so between us we put down 1.75 of those things in 1 sitting.

    I feel ya dude. Having people you can trust is invaluable in this sport.

    LOL at the pizza. As my macros dwindle I am finding that even on my refeed days I am trying to eat as much volume of food as possible, whereas before I would just get a pizza or something haha.

    Workout: Squat (275 for 3 sets of 12 Ties all time PR!!!), Deadlift, BW Pull Ups (18, 14, 12), Bent Rows, Rear Delts, Biceps, Calves




    Great workout to start off the week! This thing was brutal as the reps were mainly 12+ which is much higher than I have trained at in months. The 275 for 3 sets of 12 ties and all time PR and it really wasn't that hard. I probably could have gotten 3 sets of 15. Deads were a little rough as I had a huge pump after squats from the higher reps. BW pull ups were awesome as I got a tun of reps, but doing that many reps was brutal. The rest of my auxiallries were high rep as well. I'm surprised I'm not sore today, but I'm really not that bad. As much as I dislike high reps, it was a nice change of pace.

    Yea they have been a nice change of pace, but I'm really not a huge fan of the high reps. As far as sleep goes, I require a lot of it. If I get less than like 7hrs in a night I am definately feeling it the next day.

    Sweet eats man!

    Just looked over your photos from the 15th. Reverse seems to have treated you super well. I would say your strengths are your abs/legs/chest, and while your lats actually look pretty good from the front I think they still need more thickness in the rear poses. Delts are probably the big weak point and my guess is that your chest probably recruited a lot during your shoulder presses. Try pressing with a super straight back if you're currently using an arched form. Keep rolling bratha

    Thanks! I think that is a fair assessment of where I'm at. My legs and back have always been my weakest bodyparts, but I think I'm getting to the point where my legs aren't a weak point anymore and like you said I've improved my lats from the front. My back still needs more work from the back. As far as shoulders go, they really have never been a strong point and recently have started to actually become a weak point. I think this is due to the fact I haven't been doing much besides pressing for my shoulders lately; however, after taking the pics and seeing my shoulders starting to fall behind, I have recently begun incorporating a lot more shoulder volume via front, side, rear raises, upright rows, etc. Hopefully this will help to bring up my shoulders some.

    They are really good. The last time we made them we used mushrooms and 2x as much rice; however, since my wife is currently prepping we cut back on the carbs. Basically the way we make these to heat the peppers in a bowl of H20 in the microwave to soften them. We cook the turkey, mushrooms and onions in a skillet. Once those are cooked we add the diced tomatoes, cooked brown rice, and season it to taste with the spices listed. Then we stuff the peppers, put them in a pan, and cook at 350 for around 15min. Let me know if you try them and how you like them.

    12-20 Thursday:

    Diet: 202.5gP, 454gc, 71.5gF
    5:00am 3oz chicken, 1 1/2c rice, 1c brocolli, 1oz fat free cheese, apple, multi, 2 fish oils
    6:30-7:30am Core ABC
    9:00am 1 scoop whey, 1 1/2c oatmeal
    2:00pm 3oz chicken, 300g little red potatoes, 2 cuties
    6:00pm Jimmy John's turkey and cheese sub with mustard instead of mayo
    10:00pm 2c skim milk, 1.75c cherios, 2oz natty pb, 4 pices low cal bread, bagel thin, 1oz fat free cheese, fiber one brownie

    Water: 1.25 gallons
    Sleep: 7hrs


    Workout: Bench, Military Press, Incline Bench, a lot of delt auxillary work





    Long day....woke up at 5 and was out the door shortly after 5:30am. Got in a solid workout really targeting my delts which are a bodypart I'm currently working on bringing up. Headed to campus for the last day of mouse takedowns for a study we have been working on for nearly 1yr, caught up on some data analysis, studied, and then took what should be my last final ever after 8.5yrs of college. I still have ~2yrs left before I get my PhD, but I have now passed my phd qualifying exam and finished my coursework so that is 2 big steps in the right direction. Next up will hopefully be my Prelims in summerish.

    Hi Pete,

    You were the very first bodybuilder I started following in the contest prep section on BB.com. I don't think I could have picked a better guy to follow. Your work ethic and dedication is unequaled and I was so happy to see you win your pro card.
    I learned a ton from following your journal.

    Merry Christmas and Happy New year to you and your family Pete!

    May 2013 be even better then this last year.

    Cheers,
    Dean

    Well once you get into grad school class is just like something that gets in the way of doing reserach. I pretty much do research all day and class was just something I had to stop and go do. It will be nice not having to worry about classes once the spring semester starts. Hopefully this will give me time to start working on my proposal so that I can have my prelim exam late spring/summer (fingers crossed).

    I learned a ton from following your journal.

    Merry Christmas and Happy New year to you and your family Pete!

    May 2013 be even better then this last year.

    Cheers,
    Dean
    Thanks! That means a lot and I'm always amazed at how many people are following. I'm basically a regular guy who works hard. I don't have great genetics, gains don't come super easy, but I just bust my ass and hope for the best. Thanks again for following along and hope you had a good christmas.

    12-21 Friday:

    Diet: 205gP, 468gC, 78gF
    6:30am 2.5oz chicken, 350g little red potatoes, cutie, multi, 2 fish oils
    10:30am 1 scoop whey, 1 1/2c oatmeal
    2:30pm 1 scoop whey, 1 1/2c oatmeal
    4:00-6:00pm Core ABC
    7:00pm 2oz fat free cheese, 2 servings wheat noodles, fiber one brownie
    10:00pm 2oz mixed nuts, 1 serving oikos plain greet yogurt, reeses big cup, 8 pieces low cal bread, fiber one brownie, 1 bag 100cal quakes

    Water: 1 gallon
    Sleep: 8 1/2hrs


    Workout: Squat (315 for 4 sets of 5 and then a set of 12 for an all time PR!), Deadlift, Good Morning, Weighted Chins (4 sets of 5 with 70lbs on me), Biceps, Calves





    Really solid workout! Hit an all time PR on squats with 315x12 and that was after 4 sets of 5 at 315. This was actually an all time PR by 2 reps, but I'm ~25lbs lighter than when I hit 315x10. If you notice in my diet, we were running out of food due to the fact that we tried to get rid of anything that would spoil while we were gone for the next 5 days. I still hit my numbers, but eating 8 pieces of low cal bread in a sitting to do so wasn't all that fun.

    Saturday Morning Weight: 170.2lbs (been stuck between 169.9-170.2lbs for ~3-4 weeks so I added 5g carbs to each day and will continue to do so each week until my weight starts increasing)





    12-22 Saturday:

    Diet: 196.5gP, 452.5gC, 74gF
    4:30am 1 scoop whey, 1 1/2c oatmeal, mutli, 2 fish oils
    5:30-7:00am Core ABC
    10:00am Foot long chicken breast sub on wheat from Subway, 1 bag southwest chipotle baked lays
    3:00pm 1 scoop whey, 1 1/2c oatmeal
    6:30pm 4oz turkey breast cooked in cream of mushroom soup, 1 1/2 wheat buns, apple, fiber one PB+J bar
    10:00pm Pure protein bar, 2c cherios, 1.5oz mixed nuts

    Water: 1 gallon
    Sleep: 6 1/2hrs



    Workout: Bench (210 for 4 sets of 5 and a set of 10), DB Shoulder Press (80s for 3 sets of 5), Shrugs, Dips





    Worked out early in the morning before hitting the road and not the greatest workout. My left shoulder (front delt area) has been tight lately and bothering me somewhat, but the increased amount of overhead pressing volume and delt work this week has really aggrevated it. I can still do flat/decline without really any pain, but incline and military does not feel good. I have talked with Dr. Z swapped around some of my auxillaries to not hit inclines or militaries and will see what happens. It isn't the end of the world though as chest is probably my strongest bodypart and I can still hit side and rear delts to work on bringing them up.

    Thanks! I must have done a really terrible job with my posing in those pics (I guess that is what happens when you don't practice during the offseason), but my chest is def not a weak point. Everyone that has seen me in person lately and people at my gym can vouch for that one, but I do agree that shoulders are a weak point. Regardless, I'm going to have to get my left front delt recovered before I can really start doing a lot with this bodyparts. For now, I will just have to do my best working around things.

    12-23 Sunday:

    Diet: 197.5gP, 483gC, 80gF
    7:00am 1 scoop whey, 1 1/2c oatmeal, apple, multi, 2 fish oils
    9:00-11:00am Core ABC
    12:00pm 1 serving fat free plain greek yogurt, 3c cherios, 2c skim milk
    3:30pm 3oz turkey breast, 2 wheat buns, 100g green beans
    6:30pm 3oz chicken, 2c wheat noodles, 1oz fat free cheese, apple
    10:00pm layne norton brownie, 3c cherios, 2oz mixed nuts, fiber one PB+J bar

    Water: 1 gallon
    Sleep: 9hrs


    Workout: Squat (285x15,12,12 for an ALL TIME PR!!), Deadlift, BW Pull Ups (19 for an all time PR then 13 and 12), Rows, Biceps, Rear Delts, Calves





    Worked out at Titletown Fitness in Green Bay WI. It was a morning workout which I am not a huge fan of especially when squatting, but I had an extremely good workout. Hit an all time PR on squats for the 2nd time in 3 days. The high reps were not fun, but I gutted them out. Deads were fairly easy, but probably not as easy as normal due to how taxed I was following squats. Hit an all time PR on BW pull ups with 19, but then died on my 2nd and 3rd sets and only got 13 and 12. Finished up with some more axuillary work. This one took around 2hrs or a little more, but it was a really solid workout.

    Yea pics usually never do people justice, especially really white people like me who's pale skin tone reflects light, but that is what they make dream tan for. I hear you on posing. I was actaully winded after running through a round of poses for pics. That could also be due to the fact I do 0 cardio right now. As for the shoulder, I hope it heals up soon also. My plan is to finish this training block avoiding inclines and overheads, do some sort of deload/taper type thing, and see where I'm at at that point.
