Personal Background: I'm a former division 1 athlete so I've always been into weight lifting and competitive sports. I started personal training in 2008 and open my own personal training studio in 2010. I also started competing in bodybuilding in 2010. In 2011, I got married and started writing articles for askthetrainer. This year my wife and I had a baby boy and I released my first ebook(MS3 Program). In the upcoming year I plan on competing in the INBA Arizona State Natural March 16th, OCB Valley of the Sun Natural in April, and possibly the OCB Arizona Natural in August.
OCB: Arizona Natural 2010 DNP
INBA: Forever Natural 2011 3rd place Men's Open
INBA: Forever Natural 2011 2nd place Men's Novice
OCB: Valley of the Sun Natural 2012 5th place Men's open
OCB: Arizona Natural 2012 5th place Men's open
Goals: My short term goal is to win my class. My long term goal is to eventually win an overall.
Training: I'll be using my own comprehensive weight training program(MS3 Program) and I'll be doing 20 minutes of HIIT cardio during my strength phase and 30 minutes of moderate cardio during my stamina and size phases. If you're interested in learning more about my MS3 Program, please pm me.
Diet: I'll be consuming 2500 calories with 219/250/69 carbs/pro/fat. I'm doing one weekly refeed and shooting for 2800 350/245/46 carbs/pro/fat. My goal is too eat as many calories as possible while still losing weight at about a half pound a week. I'll adjust my macros and caloric intake accordingly throughout my prep. Most likely it will be on a 4-6 week basis.
175lbs roughly 7% or 8% body fat.
My goal is to be in the 2%-3% range.
I'll post an update on today's workout and some photos later today.
Edit: I thought I'd add my supplement regimen
Caffeine(about 200mg preworkout on some days just depends on how I feel)
