    Matt's 2011 Contest Prep Log

    Whats up everybody! I have been lurking on here for a while and decided to start a log since I am going to compete next year.

    Background:

    I competed in my first competition in July of last year. There was not a novice division so I got thrown into the open lightweight class. I ended up finishing 4th out of 5, but I learned a ton from it. I tore my labrum in my right shoulder at around 7-8 weeks out from the show without knowing. I was doing smith machine front squats on an older machine and it jammed up on me when I tried to start the lift. I did not think the injury was that bad, but the pain kept lingering, so a month after my show I went to the doc and ended up having surgery in september. I lost a lot of weight while being sidelined and started training again this past march. Since then I have regained almost all of my lost weight. Now with a healthy shoulder I am looking to do some damage!!

    I will post my diet and training later tonight. Here are some pics to start and be able to gauge my progress. I have some comparison pics from my first show and now.

    I will be following your prep with interest.
    I am competing this April (2011) in a Junior Mens under 21 division.
    Hopefully I will be able to absorb some information from your log seeing as you have competed before.
    Your progress pictures are great.
    You have definitely added some quality mass an have good symmetry.
    Feel free to view my log and offer any criticism or advice.
    Hopefully we can stimulate some inter-log activity.

    Have you adjusted to the new routine?
    I find the traditional one body party split permits you to incorporate more intensity techniques such as drop sets, rest pause, forced, negatives, etc.

    Upper Body PR

    I hated to switch back, but I simply didnt like training bodyparts once a week. I will just continue to run the training split I had been doing before switching. Yesterday was Upper Body day and I forgot to post it. I got my max in some lift and will progress based on those.

    Barbell Row-275x5

    EZ Bar Curl-105x4(Got the last one but it was kinda cheating, not going to count it)

    Lying DB Ext-35x10,10,8 ( I had been doing skullcrushers, but might stick with the DB's for variety)

    Great Sessions.
    Pull Ups... definitely time to slap on some weight.
    I recommend Gluteus hamstring Bridges.
    An amazing powerlifting move that allows huge weight and big gains.

    Thanks!! I do weighted pullups on my power day and just warmup with bodyweight pullups on my hypertrophy days.

    I will look into the bridges exercise, thanks.
