I'll post some more up after I upload them from my camera.
I was pretty happy with how it all turned out and I think I'm on progress for the show in a couple of weeks which I'm aiming for.

Got back to training yesterday, trained legs and back. I plan to stop training legs later this week to give myself more than a weeks rest.

Squats - Bar x 15
60kg x 8
100kg x 3
140kg x 3
160kg x 1
Seated goodmornings - 60kg x 5 x 3 sets
Pullups - 6 x 4 sets
Front squats - 100kg x 5 x 3 sets
Trunk twists - 10 x 3 sets

After eating pizza, bread and dark chocolate on Sunday after the comp I have got back into dieting again, I still need to lose about 3kg to make the 78kg I need to be for my weight class.

Meal 1 - Sunwarrior shake with 1tsp raw cocoa powder and 20g crushed flax seeds. I'm glad I got some more Sunwarrior because the Nitrofusion has too much sodium for this close to the show.
Meal 2 - 150g tofu, broccoli and celery, olive oil
Meal 3 - Same as meal 2
Meal 4 - Protein shake (1 scoop Sunwarrior, 1 scoop Vega), espresso
Meal 5 - Aminos, spirulina, creatine
Meal 6 - Sunwarrior and almond spread
Meal 7 - Tofu, broccoli, hummus

I may not say it often Joel, but you are a HUGE role model for me! Just like Jimi Sitko is, Ed Bauer and many others, but you're right up there near the top as a fellow competitive bodybuilder who I have so much respect for!

Awesome man! Not only a great physique but such an amazing attitude about everything and I really appreciate that about you!

Thank you so much for all the kind words!!

Robert, I don't think I'm up at Jimi's level yet but I take that as a massive compliment and appreciate that greatly.

dude why are you posting pictures of your face on my body???? lol


Haha... I was hoping you wouldn't notice... or mind! :lol:


Here are a few more, thanks to Noah from Uproar (and MVS) for taking the time to come and watch and take these photos. I'll have quite a few more over the next couple of weeks as I do the other shows.
