Jimi Sitko 2011 ** 14weeks out

#1 Postby Octopussoir » Tue Mar 29, 2011 3:01 pm

Like the title says: 17 weeks out from a local show or something out of state. I have a couple pics on my phone, but havent had the resources to post yet.


right now im holding around 172lbs-176lbs. My strength is up and have been quite lean for a while now and plan to stay that way.


Will post pics soon.

Any questions feel free to ask

Right now im eating a couple larabars(only $1 a pice near me at the moment) for breakfast and Vega Sport [acai berry]. A couple apples after. 2serving shakes of Sunwarrior [vanilla] 2-3 times a day. Then dinner its been tofu, quinoa/brown rice, coconut oil(for cooking), braggs liquid aminos, and veggies. Loving it. My 7yr old son is loving to eat healthy again too.

Right on!! Quick question if you don't mind...
Is the above diet strictly your "leaning out" plan? How does that differ from your general workout plan or bulking up phases??

Many thanks and go get'em this spring!!

This year I'm not bulking nor "cutting." The last two years I've cut out my food and didn't need to. This year I'm just going to keep eating clean and see where I go. Once the bars are gone and not on sale I won't be eating them anymore.

Tonight I did a 2 hour back workout. Back of neck has a crick in it due to upright BB rows. May need an adjustment or massage tomorrow. Felt decent during workout except for neck. Did some abs at the end and tortured them.

Hey thanks for the quick response!!
Great going on that 2 hour back session. It's going to take me awhile to get to that level.

Not sure if you've ever seen a photo or workout log of Jimi's, but for 99% of people, reaching "his level" is damn near impossible! He's a beast and an inspiration. Glad to see he's still posting! One of the most "hardcore" guys around these parts, and proof that disciplined training and eating can produce fantastic results on a vegan diet.

You're really kind. My "level" is obtainable, but you have to just keep pushing yourself every week to be better and better. I don't stick to one style of training. I cross functional training with bodybuilding with running, etc... Just the love for exercise gets me to where I need to be.

How much cardio do you do? I'm doing HIIT for three days a week and losing fat, but not sure if it'll kill gains or burn enough fat to get to around 5-8% bf.

To sum things up:

Yesterday I took off completely from training.

Got a deep tissue massage. I pulled left trap muscle which in turned stiffened my Splenius Cervicis muscle. Its still sore but have more mobility in neck.

Today I will do quads, abs, and biceps if I can make it to the gym.

djshrew- school is rough right now. cant wait until this semester is over.

Mary- theyre coming...

Sorry its been since last week that I posted.

Around Tues/Wed I pulled my left trap muscle and got a deep tissue massage the next day. Been laying off the weights since. I did however do an 8K competitive road race last Saturday and got 3rd in age group at 8:59 mile for 5 miles(8k). I then did a 5k the next day and was fun but not so challenging.

Yesterday(wed) i did a leg day and hit 315 squatting for a single rep. For me being just 172lbs Id say it wasnt bad. Did some abs and even came up with my own ab exercise. It freakin hurts!

Today(Thrs) Ive done some chest, back(rehabbing and strengthening traps/rhomboids), and a lil bit of arms. My bis and tris are lagging due to me being scared to work them due to my joint issues. It does feel better with my supports on, but I guess i just have to do it.

Rockin the Vega Sport(acai berry) just about every morning and its awesome.
