    I find the sets of 10 to be really challenging. I think they are harder than doing the sets of 5 I do later in the week on Thursdays.

    Wow, I'm glad I peeked in here! Will be following. From your avi I would have guessed you'd been lifting for much longer- very inspiring and impressive transformation

    I'm reading your nutrition with interest as well. I would have guessed you would need more calories for that kind of muscle building but your results would say otherwise. I may have to rethink the 2500 a day I had settled on for myself.

    Thanks! Everyones metabolism is different. My metabolism is still recovering from my contest prep. Prior to that I was eating 3200 caloires a day so will slowly get back to that or hopefully maybe even higher. The higher I can get my metabolism going the more effective my next contest prep will be. I see you are bulking for 2013 is there a competition your are training for? I found having a goal like that really helped me stay focused and gave me a reason to push hard everyday in the gym.

    I see- that makes more sense about the contest prep/metabolic suppression. I'm not bulking for a contest or anything, just want to maximize my strength gains now that I'm getting into lifting I'm new to this and still figuring it out as I go along, but right now am aiming for a couple pounds wt gain a month. I'm willing to do that all yr if the lifts improve as well. People who just watched me lose 20# think I'm crazy, lol.

    So are you slowly increasing your cal. intake to rev up your metabolism back to where it was? How low were your calories and for how long? I would think a few months of a gentler deficit wouldn't have much of an impact?

    A couple pounds a month is a good target to shoot for. Lots of people think I am crazy as well, I guess its just part of being a bodybuilder.

    When I no longer gain weight at the macro's I am currently eating at I will increase. When I started contest prep I was eating 2500 calories on my regular days and at the end of prep 19 weeks later I was down to 2100. I started back building on 2800 calories figuring maintenance would be 2600 with 200 extra to have me in a surplus. So far I have been gaining on that amount and have not had to increase yet.

    Your squats looked great to me- the only thing that gave the effort away was your facial expression Curious what the belt is for- I see people wearing them when they are squatting heavier wts. Is it to help keep your back from rounding?

    Good workout which now completes week 2 of this 4 week block. I slept better last night then I did the previous week but I still was up several times in the night. Taped my bench press for Mike to check plus a quick pose at the end of the workout.

    Thanks Eric, my body does seem to be adapting which is good considering I have 2 more weeks to go. Sleep was better I didn't feel completely wiped out today like I did last time.

    Heh, I have always had a pretty expresive face. Gets me into trouble sometimes even when I don't say anything. The belt just helps stabalize your core and your lower spine you take in a deap breath which fills your belly and pushes against the belt and creates better pressure then without one. I try and do all my warm up sets with no belt to ensure I develope my core without a belt as well.

    Weight 200.4 lbs

    Macro's - Protein 275 g, Carbs 195 g, Fat 68 g - Calories 2492

    No workout today.

    Well weight is up 2.4 lbs from last Saturday. A big jump but last week was only a .2 lb increase so not going to worry about it during this volume block. I will probably do a one day fast on my taper and intro weeks to help keep the fat down. I think staying in the 8 to 10% BF range will help hormonally with adding more mass then staying at a lower %. I have gained one inch on my waist so far which is not bad. I think people can be so scared of putting fat on they limit or kill any muscle gains and at the same time others put on to much thinking its muscle and they just add a ton of fat. I hope I am hitting a happy medium and I am anticipating the weight gain to slow in the weeks ahead.

    It's been 2 weeks since I started taking Mutant Test and I honestly feel no changes. No increase libedo, no morning wood, zip, zero, nada, so I will finish off this bottle but I won't buy it again. Going to go back to just pure DAA from Allmax going forward on a 4 week on 2 week off cycle.

    That was some strong benching. I plan to do pretty much the same as far as BF is concerned. Once I start to raise my calories I plan to stay around 10 percent. My last bulk went haywire and I gained 30 pounds in 5 months, not doing that again.

    Thanks Eric. Both my squats and my bench this week I was struggling to complete 5 reps each set but some how on the 8th set I am able to dig deep and grind out 8. Hopefully I can continue to keep the pace up with 2 weeks left and the weight increasing. I gained a little too much at Christmas time and wanted to lose a bit of fat while not hurting my muscle building progress so I tried a one day fast based on Eat, Stop, Eat from Brad Pilon which seems to work great. I think its pretty easy to stay in a calorie surplus (anabolic state) 6 days a week and then fast one day to burn some fat. I don't want to use it every week but I think it can be an effective tool to prevent to much fat gain and not take 4 to 6 weeks off building to diet back down. At least that is my plan at this point. Its fun to try new things and figure things out on your own at times.

    Man tonight triceps where really pumped and doing 30 reps for lateral raises had my shoulders massive and feeling like bolders, don't think I have ever had a pump like that in my shoulders before. The video I posted earlier today had me motivated to hit the gym tonight.

    Weight 199.6 lbs

    Macro's - Protein 275 g, Carbs 275 g, Fat 68 g - Calories 2812

    Workout: - Working weight only

    Squats:
    1. 260 x 4
    2. 260 x 4
    3. 260 x 4
    4. 260 x 4
    5. 260 x 4
    6. 260 x 4
    7. 260 x 3 - Failed on 4th rep
    8. 260 x 6

    Deadlifts:
    1. 365 x 3
    2. Stopped workout
    3.
    4.

    RDL:
    1.
    2.
    3.
    4.

    Pendlay Row/ Incline DB Curls
    1.
    2.
    3.

    BFR Leg Curls / Seated DB Calf Raises ( BFR= Blood Flow Restricted )
    1.
    2.
    3.

    Not the best workout. Was sick with the flu today but wanted to see if I could still get my workout in. Struggled with squats and then the first set of deadlifts felt extremely heavy and I just had nothing left at that point. Felt if I kept going I was just going to end up hurting myself so best to just stop at that point.

    Thanks. In order to make the changes I want I have to push hard and be consistent.

    I don't think I've ever felt good about a workout that I did when I was sick so I don't even try now. And you only get one body so I agree treat it well and rest when you have to- you'll come back in beast mode

    Macro's - Did not track macro's today as I was really sick and did not eat much and mostly just slept for a large part of the day.

    No workout due to being sick.

    I have often done workouts where I have not felt 100% and it ended up being some of my best ones. I think sometimes people look for any excuse not to workout and tell themselves that the rest is better. Not saying that this is you but on the whole I try and be as consistent as I can possibly be with my workouts regardless if I feel great or feel bad.

    Welcome and thanks! The video is great and makes me being out sick and not doing my sets that much harder! LOL

    No workout today.

    I had thought of working out today to make up for missing yesterday but still not feeling 100% by any stretch but better then yesterday so I think the worst is behind me. Going to rest up the rest of the weekend and be ready to giver on Monday.
