    [img]*****://sphotos-b.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ash3/547350_10150992466371981_1263158333_n.jpg[/img]


    This journal will be my contest prep grow season leading all the way until my next pre contest diet. No set date, just personal records, a lot of food, and good times. I plan to rekindle with my long lost strength levels quickly as possible while maintaining body ccomp/weight. I will also focus on endurance my entire off-season, I will not stop some form of cardio at any point except for an injury.

    Weight room goals are scarce at this point until I reach my previous bests, which shooting for first of the year on the majority of my lifts.

    Physique goals are to make an extreme change in bicep/triceps/forearms, add/abductors, and pecs. The first time it 2.5 years I will work all bodyparts year round, even abdominals.

    Follow my journey to see me bust balls everyday, deadlift a lot of weight, eat a bunch of junkcfood and get fat , and do a few powerlifting meets around the country. Leggo my eggos, no slacking!!!!




    The first routine is sheiko 29 with focus on front squats, incline BB, and sumo pulling 90% of the time. I was extremely conservative these 4 weeks to adapt well. I feel strength will blast up by doing this, let's see!

    BB INCLINE
    135X10,10
    155X10,10
    175X3,3,3,3,3



    FRONT SQUATS
    135X10,10
    185X10,10
    225X5,5,5,5,5

    Sums stance Good morning's
    185x5,5,5,5,5
    SS
    LEG EXTENSIONS
    5X10

    BB INCLINE
    135X10,10
    145X10
    165X4,4,4,4

    Flat DB PRESS
    45x10,10,10,10,10

    Alt DB CURLS
    20x10,10,10,10

    Hammer curls

    Off day today. Here are some quick shots from the show the photographer took, hopefully get the high quality prints in a few weeks. I was shocked at how I looked on stage. I determined I was stupidly depleted, conditioning was better than most at this show, about the only one with signs of striated glutes and split hamstrings, and by evening I was a lot fuller but potential was wasted by that time. Peak Week was jacked up.

    I will do what it takes to progress, regardless of what is fun is not always optimal for constant progression IMO.

    It feels great. The progress I made in 2.5 years was great, but I feel I have better understanding of what I need to do even more. I will just have to wait and see if my thoughts will yield better results.

    Thanks my dude, lets see what our offseason can bring...I know you will be right behind me for progression as well

    Gotta keep it real brah

    I have done it before. When my hip was injured I ran sheiko with Front Squats for the entire run, it got me up to a deep 450 front squat. I also ran it for incline BB once before, getting me to 320lbs in 4 weeks after NEVER doing incline BB in that time frame. I am excited to see what it does for a sumo stance because 1. I never progressed well from conventional on sheiko 2. Sumo seems to be my stance of true maximal benefit. I think I will blow 600 out of the water in competion in no time by making this switch.

    Never once. I even replaced then and now the flies with light Dumbell presses +light accessory work added in. I thought it done just as much wonders for incline as flat. I only wish my dumbbells at my gym were heavy enough to try it.

    Feeling very sore from the Monday massacre. The workout this evening was killer as well, but I am only adapting to the training protocol at this point. All of my warm ups are consisting of hyper rep ranges, and then following sheiko repitition during the main sets. I am hoping this will help my stamina during training during the lighter/warm up reps. I think this will not only rid them as being warm up sets, but help grow some as well as I can still stimulate muscle fibers with this weight and rep range. HEre my 40+ set evening, HIIT PWO, and all done in less than 2 hours. DO WORK!!!

    BB Lunges
    95x5,5,5,5,5

    Sumo Deadlifts
    135x10
    225x10
    315x8
    375x3,3,3,3

    Conventional Rack Pull Deadlifts
    315x8
    365x8
    425x4,4,4,4
    (was only suppose to do 4 sets of 3 reps...I dun Goof'd)

    Lat Pulldowns
    100x12,12,12,12

    BB Bench Press
    135x10,10,10
    155x6,6,6,6

    (Really just put my feet up on the bench and focused on slow negatives,pause, and press...Really makes light weight rough)

    DB FLies
    20x10,10,10,10,10

    BW DIPS
    5x5

    Hanging Leg Raises
    BWx10,10,10

    Next week I want to add in some type of row and/or shrug movement to add into the mix, this week I am much too sore from the Monday workout using front squats. I've got to slowly accustome myself to the volume + adding more to sheiko is not always easy, but I want to add cals in slowly and training volume/intensity slowly. Patience is key at this point, and sticking to the plan

    Sorry for my lack of Food Pron, but macros will raise eventually and will be able to throw in variety on the meal by meal basis rather than daily. I gotta pick up some baking supplies and I will have some new stufff posted

    Oreo Cake Pop...Macros counted then SMASHED

    I am going to go over some points so far now that I am almost 2 weeks post show. Post show I tried sticking with my low macros to stay tight for my next weekend vacation, and it was a bust. I could not maintain control and I ate everything in sight, and I personally felt if I did not raise them I would just have major up and down macros, so I figured some structure with higher macros would be better than eating everything like a fat kid with low self esteem. I raised carbs 200g and lowered fat some, and I have kept with those macros for over 1 week now. I am starting to get that feeling again of being extremely hungry, and unable to control eating certain items that have been presented to me on the daily basis, my self control is about 50%. I am thinking of going ahead and raise my calories on workout days for 4 semi higher days, because I feel yet AGAIN that it would just be smart to eat structured higher intake rather than grabbing a donut when I see it laying in the box, and nobody is around so I grab it and eat. I feel if I raise my intake maybe the sensations will go away for a while like they have the last week until now, being they are starting to return. Anybody else have this issue post show, and did you do similar judging when to add back in macros as well? I know sometimes it should be based on how you look and weight gain whe nto add macros back but I feel it is mentally hurting me as well, like a strong eating disorder.

    My current counted Macros are 40/200/270... F/C/P

    I would like to raise them on Workout days to 55/350/245 and keep them at the above macros 3 days per week on "OFF DAYS"

    Any suggestions and ideas to keep me on the white line?

    It will only get better. I feel the epicness of food and PR's coming very soon, but I am trying to be patient doing this myself.

    So what you have outlined is basically caloric cycling. I don't see anything wrong with it. Give it a shot and see how it affects you!

    Food Porn will be pretty much better this week, food went up...Ideas are coming to play. I am normally a guy who enjoy eating the same type of foods on the daily because they are normally foods that satisfy me so I do not change often. Right now since my food intake will be moving up, I want to try new things baking and cooking that I never have. I owe a lot of credit to ideas from my bros following and journals I follow a long, but I do a lot myself and have made for years since I started as I always followed a IIFYM kind of guy before it ever existed. I will take some weekly pics tomorrow to check out my body composition is and weigh in. I actually do not care what my weight is as long as body composition is good. I am a big believer in being at the set point of gaining much quicker rather than taking 6 months post show to reach. I do feel though once you reach that set point it is best to maintain is a lot slower once you are in a surplus, and get stronger. I feel my set point for my strongest is around 190, and I will probably compete at this weight and grow into it without going much past 190 at any point if I can help it....

    Tomorrow is the second half of this session, the lower half, LISS, a lot of good home cooking, painting my house I am renovating, and of course chillaxin.

    I have always had high intensity focus on arm training, during prep I staretd going for a mind muscle connection, speed, and major pumps. I am going to give this routine a try for the first time this offseason. I am going to focus on high frequency and high volume 2x per week but wit hdiff exercises focused on each day, but similar rep/set ranges. I cannot wait until week 4 is over of sheiko. I am going to test a Max Effort Phase and then start the main compounds of flat Bench, Regular Squats, and stick with 90% of the time Sumo Pulls. After this cycle is finished my main focus will be to GROW at all costs.

    Yes sir, I feel as though it would be a good idea to raise calories by the workout day and a bit slower on non workout days. A bit more structure of eating more rather than gorging on snacks when given the opportunity and not counting will be a much better idea. Atleast if I gain to fast this way I can pull back because I will have known what macro amount caused it.

    Yes sir, I can agree to this. This reverse is much harder to grasp than in 2009 where I smoked my reverse as perfect as my contest prep. I have a disorder to where I am rarely ever full, or satisfied more or less so I just want to keep eating. During contest prep I am so focused in that I can work past it.

    Thanks man, I was pretty happy with how I looked in the evening show, fullness finally made its way through. I do think I could have been fuller earlier if I would have ate some more Friday evening or woke up earlier to get a bit more carbs in. I was playing catch up by mid day of the show and started getting nauseous from so much food, low energy from being on stage, and really restless. I just could not get in enough food at a quick enough rate. I actually had to quit eating and drink gatorade to get carbs in because I could get eat anymore.

    Woke up and took progress pics, pretty pleased with them. I thought I had done more damage. THe scale said this morning that I am only up 4lbs from my lowest weigh in during prep, and that is not bad considering I am getting on track now with things. Not that I never really got off my game plan, I would just eat extra things when they were presented to me, I always stuck to my macro plan, but sometimes additional snacks would be entered. I will say that is how I am, I only live once, and I LOVE food. I love trying diff foods, and if I am not prepping, and get presented food ive never had, I will devour it. I just don't enjoy that I feel like I am cheating myself by doing so, since I wanted to start my reverse slow, but if the food is prsented and I feel I may never try it again, I will try it as I said. WEight was 184.0 on the dot this morning, workout was great, and food was epic so far.

    Epic food the last two days, macros were tracked great, and feeling much fuller now. My performance in the gym is already on the rise and its only the first week, I know strength is about to get real up in here. Here are some pictures from tonight at a delayed Halloween party because of Hurrican Sandy causing storms and power outages locally all week.

    I did feel bad about not getting it out, but I thought I would wake up that morning to help you head out so it slipped my mind. On that note it is awesome to top with things occasionally, I wish I could eat the entire jar by itself though..You know whatsup

    Thanks again for the trip to my show brother. I can't wait for the Arnold because now I can actually go workout with you during our offseason training, and we can have an epic cheat meal somehwere in Columbus with every food option available

    WOrkout Week 2 is going amazing. I had a bit of a shoulder tweak all last week from sleeping on it wrong, so I have been utilizing the very light dumbell flies post pressing to stretch the pec/delt tie in. The real thing that hurts my shoulder is holding the front squat bar after so many sets. Front squats are feeling like butter, incline press with a pause each rep, easy...Deadlifts will be ripped off of the floor. Like I said, I do believe strength is going to blow up when the time to test it comes. I am excited to really push that envelope, especially since food is moving up pretty decent and in 3-4 more weeks I will have raised it a bit more if body composition approves.

    I took some post workout pictures. I have concluded I am still getting super flat post workout, muscle memory has not kicked back in, but I am hoping it will soon that food is going back up. I hit some back squats post front squats as program called for, felt good, cannot wait to smash!!!!




    Front Squats 75%
    135x10,10
    185x8
    225x5,5
    265x3,3,3,3,3

    2 second Pause Back Squats
    135x10.10
    185x10
    225x5
    275x3
    325x2,2,2,2

    Leg Extensions, 2 second pause at contraction
    110x12,12,12,12,12

    BB Incline Press, 2 second pause
    135x10,10,10
    155x5
    165x4,4
    185x3,3,3,3,3

    Db Press
    45x15,15,15,15,15

    Db FLies
    25x15,15,15,15,15

    DB SKullcrushers
    25x10,10,10,10,10

    Reverse Pressdowns
    70x15,15,15,15

    Single ARm Cable Extensions
    30x15,15,15

    Alt DB Curls
    15x10,10,10,10
    20x10

    Hammer Curls
    30x12,12,12,12

    INcline Db Curls
    15x15,15,15,15


    One of the best workouts I have had in a while..Felt strong, form tight on all counts. Intensity is not high, but I feel these workouts better, and will be incorporating more volume in my accessory training in the future with slightly less intensity. It will be a huge change for me from what I have done before.

    I hope I don't need to. If I did not eat some of the foods that I did I probably would be in even cleaner shape than I am now, and all things aside. I did eat 600 some carbs on show day and 350+ on Friday before not invluding our cheat meal post show, and my Sunday food massacre LOL. So like 700g of carbs easy. I do wish I would've spread things out, but my mind was really pushing me, but I will be sticking to the plan and aiming to get large by the Arnold so I can walk around big in my t-shirt and lift some massive weights when we hit up the gym.
