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