    Cool The quest to be my best

    It begins...
    May the Lord Jesus Christ bless those who bless me as I gladly accept their blessings, and curse those who curse me all the while protecting me for any evils. In Christ name, amen...

    Today kickstarted being consistant in and out of the gym again... Hopefully I'll finally move towards my full potential. I'm not after quanity as much as quality however...

    Todays workout:

    Abs
    1) 3 sets of a superset using decline sit-ups and machine side twist

    Delts
    1) 3 light sets of machine side laterals for 15 reps each
    2) Reverse pec-dec for 2 sets of 15 reps

    Chest
    1) 3 sets of Smith machine presses for 20,15,15
    2) 2 sets of pec-dec for 15 reps

    Biceps
    1) 3 sets of dumbbell curls for 10 reps each
    2) 2 sets of standing dumbbell concentration curls for 10 reps each

    I'm just now able to spend the time needed to be my best. I haven't trained with any consistency for awhile now. Which is the reason I'm starting off slow and light. My workouts will change and step up in intensity quickly...
    May the Lord Jesus Christ bless those who bless me as I gladly accept their blessings, and curse those who curse me all the while protecting me for any evils. In Christ name, amen...

    Thankfully with the genetics I was given I'm still one of the more muscular guys in the gym. With consistant training the sky has no limits for me... I hate feeling weak however, but it's amazing how quickly muscle memory kicks into full gear.

    I currently weigh 282lbs. Down 3lbs. in as many days... I'm looking to get to 245lbs. At that weight I will look outstanding! I hope to be there in less than a year. More like 6-7 months...

    Thanks Kenwood. Same to you my friend...

    I'd post weights, but there's simply not enough space to write them out...

    I'm training pretty light right now.

    Here's my split for the next month. After a month I'll be stepping into a specialized program designed for athletics and speed. Please follow along if you'd like to learn...

    Training will be interupted by continued body cleanses. I hope to complete 4-6 within the next year. 2 a year after that...

    1) chest, cardio
    2) back, abs
    3) upper legs, cardio
    4) rest day - maybe cardio
    5) delts, cardio
    6) arms, abs
    7) rest day - maybe cardio

    Current supplement routine

    I just started this. It should last about 2 months...

    Morning:
    Greens tablets
    1 Prosource GTX tab(green tea tabs)
    2 Prolab Cuts II
    1 Universal Animal Pak
    1 Twinlab Tribulus
    ISS Reseach meal replacement powder
    1 IronMagLabs Essence (EFA's)

    Before training:
    1 GTX
    2 Cuts II
    1 tribulus
    3 IronMagLabs CEE
    1 scoop of ProtaQuest Whey (whey protein mix)

    After training:
    3 CEE
    2 scoops of Prosource NytroWhey (whey isolate)
    joint support supp.
    1 Essence
    1 tribulus
    1 GTX

    With dinner:
    1 Essence
    fiber supp.

    Before bed:
    1 scoop of ProtaQuest
    2 Cuts II

    This is more than I plan to take in the future... I'm just going to use supps I've had sitting around. Bought a bunch because not long ago I intended to start getting HUGE. Not my intentions now... I'm after simply bettering my appearance.

    All I'll take after this is gone is a whey protein, joint fuel, EFA's, and a natural antioxidant supplement...
    May the Lord Jesus Christ bless those who bless me as I gladly accept their blessings, and curse those who curse me all the while protecting me for any evils. In Christ name, amen...
