    The Saga continues.....

    Okay, new journal time. I have run the old one long enough. So, I just got back from the Olympia, it was a lof of fun and I got to meet a whole bunch of cool people from here. Now it is time to get things cracking and start growing. I am right now thinking about competing in March (mid to late march) and hopefully a couple of shows right after that. I am pretty pumped up to compete after just coaching one of my clients in her first figure contest (at which she placed third and we have another one next weekend). She talked me into thinking about this show in March so I think I will shoot for it. Right now my body weight is fluctuating between 189 adn 191lbs. I got clipped at 11% bf. I want to really hit 195lbs at 10% by Jan. I know it seems like a long shot but it is just something to work towards. If I don't hit it no biggie. At any rate I don't want to get my BF% up any higher so that I don't have to diet for a long time to get in shape.

    My diet will be clean as always and I will log it if I have the time. It is pretty much the same thing everyday anyway.

    Training wise I am going to mix things up. I have been doing a lot of olympic lifting, conditioning type training and explosive/ballistic training lately. It is time to change things up for a bit. I will try a split that I tried a long time ago. Basically it rotated around so that one muscle group will get hit twice a week while the others will get hit once. In a four week period everything will get a week where it is worked twice. it starts like this:

    mon- back/ bi's
    tues- chest/tri's
    wed- off
    thurs- legs
    fri- shoulders
    sat- back/bi's
    sun- off

    then on monday I start with whatever what was worked on tues. like this:

    mon- chest/tris
    tues- legs
    wed- off
    thurs- shoulders
    fri- back/bis
    sat- chest/shoulders
    sun of

    See???

    I will do that for four weeks and then probably switch to something else like a two on one off push/pull/legs split.

    cardio- not right now. but I may throw it in now and again somewhere on the next couple of weeks

    supplements- I don't really use much. Whey, Flax and occasionally creatine. I have't used creatine for over a month now so maybe I will start that tomorrow.


    So I guess that's it. I'll see what kind of improvements I can make to my body and see how much size I can add in the next two months. I should be able to do okay if I can (a) stay healthy and injury free and (b) mentally stay healthy and free from depression (that one is a tough one for me).


    here we go..............

    Not necessarily what you are doing right this moment, but in the past I have seen the usage of a lot of olympic movements, uncommon exercises, and various other sport-specific type training.

    Oh yeah, I'll still do that stuff.

    A lot of people don't like to believe me that things like total body training, upper/lower splits, push/pull or olympic lifting routines can make you grow. Most people are so afraid that their arms will shrivel up if they don't train one body part a day. I think a grow better on one of the routines I listed above. The only reason I am going back to body parts for the next four weeks is to mix it up and doing something different. I will still do cleans throuhg out these next four weeks though. Nothing makes my traps grow bigger than cleans.

    I hear that. Full body workouts are awesome. They can condition you in a way that a regular training split simply cannot.

    Yeah, a new journal!! Great, looking forward to following along and I'm sure I'll get some great ideas for what to do for my program. Good luck man.
    I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain...
