Thanks much!

Today I did:
5 min warmup on treadmill
Dips
Tricep machine
Tricep Ext with resistance band
10 min on Precor
Shoulder Presses and Raises
Lat Pulldowns(light/higher reps)
Preacher EZ curls(light)
15 min on Treadclimber

Will probably hit cardio tonight as well. Right now I have Tofu and italian green beans cooking in garlic olive oil. Will make some Quinoa with it. Let it digest for 20-30 min then do some cardio & abs and eat again.

Side Note: I must say the probars I eat are too damn good!!

P.M. Cardio:
30min treadmill
20min bike
10min precor

1 hour total cardio

Weight was back down to 180lbs this morning. Guess that hour of cardio helped last night! Seems like some days when I feel big, my nighttime weight is at 185lbs or so.

Today I trained chest only. Had a 5 min warmup on treadmill and then 15min on precor in between some sets. I just didnt have the energy today. Should have loaded up on some yummy ProBars!! But I didnt so... After an hour I felt my muscle energy just drained!!

Tomorrow is gonna be a leg day. Gotta eat big for it.

Awesome stuff my man!

I can't wait to see us all on stage!

6.5 weeks!!!!!!!!! Man, it is sneaking up on us. Keep pushing and pushing and pushing.....it all pays off. I'm going to diet hardcore in the final month. I'm still dieting now and have been for 12 weeks, but I'll take it hardcore (like Lean and Green does) pretty soon.

Luckily I'm lean all the time so I can get away with it now but will really crack down on it soon and it should be awesome.

I'll be in touch....very busy week....

8:15am-
15min warmup on Precor
Legs(I couldnt quite get into it today...too early I think and no workout partner)
15 min treadmill(inclined 5%)


2:15pm-
Lat Pulldowns 100lbx20x5sets (slow and steady)
1 Arm DB Row 60lbx10x5sets (really feel the squeeze)
CloseGrip pulldowns 135lbx10x5sets (pull hard. lats bow out)
Seated Rows 150x10x5sets (different angles to hit diff parts of back more/less)

weighted situps 20lb x 6 sets or so of 10-20

I was not quite with myself today. The second workout was a little better being the gym was not as crowded and I didnt change the poundage, but I had gone over 3 hours without eating and fatigue set it quick. My tan still looks good.

its easy (says the girl who's afraid of cameras. haha) just get in front of a camera and tell us what youve been up to. what have you been eating? How have you been training? rip into LnG and RC a little. you know, the usual! you cant be shy in front of us if your gonna get up on stage in your skivvies.

You are basically living on those things these days!

Nice work man; you are going to be so shredded come contest time.

I did 5 min warmup on treadmill
Biceps: EZ, Preacher, DB, seated machine
Couple sets of incline db press
pullups(countless sets with and without weights)
15min Precor
250 total pushups(5 sets of 50)


Im chillin on the bars until after competition. I made a Vega bar last through three different munch times. My protein powder is getting very, very low. I might have enough for 2-2.5 shakes. So LnG and/or RC need to hurry! Ha Ha. I have some alfalfa sprouts in my sprouting jar. In two days they already have mad roots on them. Cant wait til they get the leaves.

Today was a bit better even though my calories have been pretty low.

10min warmup on treadclimber
Leg Press (only went up to 5 plates each side)
bench 1 leg lunge
Jump squats
BB squat
leg extension
seated ham curls
some calf raises(weight machine)
20min treadclimber

My arse was throbbing after mu multiple sets of jump squats(I go below parallel and jump as high as I can each time). I looked like a zombie on the treadclimber at the end. Sweaty and head bouncing like a bobblehead toy.
