    Stay hustlin'- My Journey to becoming a Natural Pro

    Hey guys, welcome

    As you can see by the title, this is going to be a long log- I've created two in the past, for my on/offseasons but I think from now on it is appropriate to have one big log that allows me to take thorough notes throughout my journey.

    I highly appreciate any feedback, and respond very well to constructive criticism- so let me have it!

    Throughout this log, I will be recording:

    -My daily macros
    -My workouts
    -How I'm feeling each day
    -Measurements/photos
    -My headspace during the journey
    -Observations I have while working out.

    All weights listed will be using the Metric system!

    My History:

    As a kid I always wanted to be a fitness model, I liked the idea of having a platform to communicate charisma, and inspiring others to follow a similar lifestyle. I had quite a bit of an obstacle though- I was 115kg at highschool (17-18 years old). I worked out twice a day at school, but with no knowledge/education- I was wondering in the dark.

    School:
    [img]*****://fbcdn-sphotos-g-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-ash3/542555_10151823659190157_950032893_n.jpg[/img]

    I managed to shed down to 92kg at the end of school, and did concrete laying for 6 months after where I got down to 86kg. University started, as well as stress/pressures to do with starting a new lifestyle- I ballooned back up to 110kg. I hated myself for this, and after I turned 20, I decided enough was enough. I shredded back down to 87kg (9-10% BF), got a bit of lean body mass and fulfilled my goal of competing at 21. I qualified for NZ Nationals at this show by placing top 3, and decided to train even harder towards this show. I came against what was quoted 'The most competitive category in years' I didn't place top 3 at this show, but came in at a personal best- 86kg at 6% bodyfat.

    Before I started prepping for first competition:

    First Comp:
    *Blue*
    [img]*****://fbcdn-sphotos-a-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-prn1/150977_10150768479741600_1006600396_n.jpg[/img]

    1 week before Nationals:
    [img]*****://fbcdn-sphotos-e-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-snc7/373844_162411040573368_338733477_n.jpg[/img]

    Transformation (2012):

    [img]*****://fbcdn-sphotos-c-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-prn1/163374_4532390222224_149973789_n.jpg[/img]

    [img]*****://fbcdn-sphotos-e-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-prn1/23756_4532394862340_862249941_n.jpg[/img]

    Here we are in a new year, I've started dieting down for my shows this year- I'm currently sitting at 93.8kg 13 weeks out from my first show of the year- Auckland Champs- May 18th I'm doing an INBA show after this (Natural, tested) in June. After these shows, The nationals for both federations are in October.

    Feeling confident this year to do some damage!

    Thank you all for your support so far, I appreciate it a lot! I learn something new from you guys everyday! Can't communicate it enough./.. THANK YOU!

    Let's see how much of a hustle this pro card is to get.


    ...LETS GO!

    Cheers guys Great to have you guys here


    Anyway, today was Lower Body Power day- I did calves the day before with arms/abs, so decided just to do Quads/Hams.

    Felt okay, pretty boring day at work so probably wasn't the most motivated, I've decided to come off Superpump for awhile too just to develop a bit more of a tolerance to it. Also a really hot day today!

    Monday
    Lower Body Power:

    Barbell Squats x5
    60kg-12, 100kg-10, 140kg-5, 160kg-5, 180kg-1 (went too far to the ground and paused too long, couldn't get back past parallel)

    Deadlifts x5
    60kg-12, 100kg-10, 140kg-5, 160kg-5, 180kg-1 (forearm grip gave out)

    Single Leg 45 degree Leg Press x3
    3plate-12, 5plate-10, 6plate-6

    Leg Extensions x2
    59kg-12, 86kg-10

    Romanian Deadlifts x3
    60kg-12, 80kg-8, 100kg-8

    Lying Hamstring Curls x3
    39kg-12, 56kg-10, 72kg-8

    Butt Bridges with 20kg Powerbag x2
    20reps each, 8 second time under tension each rep- hit it really well)

    Did some posing practice, losing weight at a really good rate at the moment, shouldn't need to move my carbs for at least another week. Sitting at around 94kg after having a refeed during the weekend.

    Good day, but have quite a bit to eat still :/

    Tuesday

    Day off today, so I adjusted my macros to 190 protein, 150 carb and 70 fat for the day (very sedentary job)

    I've been doing Intermittent fasting up until now for these days, it works pretty well as it feels like I'm just eating normally once 1 o'clock swings around

    Feel pretty so-so today, very long drawn out day at work... looking forward to being able to train tomorrow- Upper Body Power!

    Macros for today:



    Think my next preworkout purchase is gonna be White Flood, or 50 Calibre By Grenade... Here's the Label of the Calibre:



    Looks okay... but man I hate propriety blends... thoughts?

    Wednesday

    Morning:

    I've decided that I want to do calves/abs a a little bit of HIIT work (10mins) in the morning before work- the workout isn't longer than 1 hour, but works up a good sweat! As I noted from my last logs as well, my calves/abs respond very well to a Light, Heavy, Light scheme. I started taking Detonates this week as I managed to score some cheap- this stuff gives you crazy energy, I feel a lil strung out though If I don't workout in the morning- hence I've decided to adjust the intake to only one on non-workout days, normal two on workout days


    Calves:

    Standing Plures on Standing Calve Raise Machine x2
    15 tows facing in-15 toes facing out - 48kg x2

    Smith Machine Standing Calve Raises x3
    140kg-8, 140kg-8, 140kg-6 *dropset* 100kg-8, 60kg-8

    Seated Calve Raises x3
    2plate-12, 4plate-8, 5plate-5

    Leg Press Calve Raises x2
    2plate-30 reps x2

    Front Tibia Raises (with 12kg dumbbell of the edge of a bench) x1
    50reps

    Abs:

    Sit-ups on Decline Bench x2
    30, 30

    Knee-ups x2
    20, 20

    Broomstick Twists x2
    60, 60

    Kettlebell HIIT Ab work
    Golf Swings to Side Bends, 20 reps each side x3 (no rest)

    Single hand Rope Crunches x2
    32kg-20, 48kg-12

    Good burn in abs and calves, had to really push through with some of those sets as I did this workout fasted (with 1 scoop of BCAAs in my system)

    Having a sip on a Strawberry Lush from Tank while typing this... amping for Upper Body Power tonight!

    SHOULDER SEPERATION/VEINS OF PEACE


    ...so anyway, today was Arms as I goof'd my split trying to adapt around my training partner... Was a great workout, had a Lift Plus before it and honestly had one of the best pumps I've had in awhile- keeping it simple really does wonders.


    Had to get my Valentines hustle on with this one boys, ah well- was a challenging workout even though it was only 45mins!

    Thursday

    Arms:

    Cable Bicep Curls x4
    28kg-15, 42kg-12 x3

    ^Superset with Cable Tricep Pushdowns x4
    42kg-15, 64kg-10 x3

    Machine Preacher Curls x3
    26kg-10 x3

    ^Superset with Overhead Extensions x3
    38kg-10 x3

    Hammer Curls x4
    12kg-12 x4

    ^Superset with Dumbbell Skullcrushers x4
    12kg-10 x3

    Standing One Hand Tricep Extensions (Overhead) x2
    9kg-12 x3

    ^Superset with Concentration Curls x2
    9kg-15 x2

    Single Hand Cable Pull-aparts x2
    20kg-12 x2

    Overhead Bicep Curls on the Cables x2
    14kg-20, 20kg-15

    ^did all of this in 40mins, so you can imagine how short the breaks were :S Huge pump after this, have to do this format of working out more often!


    There is always time for gym!

    Upper body coming along well! Starting to get a real flow going on I feel... Here's a quick progress update-

    [img]*****://fbcdn-sphotos-f-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-prn1/11225_167145510099921_2068528656_n.jpg[/img]

    Sorry for bad lighting, you get a general jist I guess- obliques starting to shred up, losing all that excess fat around hip/bottom ab area.

    12 weeks out tomorrow, legs tonight!

    Haha GOMAD, that takes me back. I give it the tick if you are having trouble fitting your macros bro- but it's really hard getting a gallon of milk each day.

    One of those diets that looks great on paper, but impractical -

    get on dat der Sorbet time.
