what did he do exactly?

Sorry Lelle, missed that one last ime :oops:

He did a kind of straight legs deadlift, but all the movement came out of bending his back, not of the hips *ouch*


SeaSiren, cool new avatar :shock:
:roll:


Thanks, roid-rage!
110kg can be heavy or easy - it depends on the person and the exercise ;) For me, rowing it with pronated grip is heavy!
The German Championship in Natural Bodybuilding will be on october the 29th in Werdau, Sachsen.


Hey Gorilla, schön, dass es Dir gefällt! Irgendwann müssen wir uns mal treffen - wenn ich wieder alles essen darf ;)


Day 38

The workout was quite a struggle today

Bench press: 115kg for 12x 1rep. After the 6th i had some guy spot me for safety. The next two were easy, but he only helped a little on the last rep. 8)
Incline bench flies: 32kg for 4, 4 reps
Dips: 55kg for 10x 1 rep. The first 3 reps were the hardest and had the worst form, the next 7 were fine in form and still not maximum lifts.
Barbell press: 55kg for 3, 4, 1 reps
Upright row: 57,5kg for 4, 4 reps
Squats: 145kg for 6x 2 reps. The first 3 sets were actually harder than the last 3... and the last were better in form. I think there is a good new PB coming up, for 145 is the heaviest weight i've used so far after my knee surgeries.

Tomorrow is the last day of heavy workout before the competition... i'll try to make it count! 8)

Day 39

Last heavy workout before competition.

Chin-ups: 50kg for 12x 1 rep. I did a slow negative after each rep, the last very slow plus loaded stretching.
Barbell row: 110kg for 3, 3, 3, 3 reps. It was just too heavy today :? I'm beginning to feel my strength decrease, i'm out of energy. But that's how it was supposed to be :P
SL Deadlift: 155kg for 2, 3, 3, 4 reps. This was the only exercise i felt stronger than last workout! Very clean, "easy" reps.
T-Bar: 105kg for 2, 2, 2 reps.
Incline bench Dumbell curls: 24kg for 2, 1, 1 reps. Negative on the descend, loaded stretching. Ouch :D
Barbell shrugs: 170kg for 4, 4 reps.
Pullovers: I gave up. Too heavy today, too exhausted, and my elbow hurt very disturbingly. No pullovers today, a set of pull ups instead with 10 seconds loaded stretching after each rep (4 reps).
Calves, seated: 160kg for 6, 6 reps.
Abs machine: 70kg for 4, 4, 4 reps.

If i'm ever gonna do this program again, i'll start with the same weights, but increase by smaller steps to end not with singles, but triples. The weight was okay for some exercises, but the pulling and rowing movements i feel better with higher reps, lighter weight and stricter form. But it worked as intended and i'm shredded as can be by now, at least as shredded as i can get without losing muscle tissue.

Tomorrow is "only" posing.
Sunday is rest day.

Monday the fun begins :P

Thank-you! It was taken on the bayside of Assateague Island, one of my favorite places to go. The island has wild ponies roaming, it's fairly peaceful there.

You should log onto your YIM on occassion.

Thanks Will!

Today i started eating low carb and high sodium, together with increased water intake.
The low carb makes me dizzy and slow in the uptake... i can't imagine doing that crap voluntarily for longer tahn the three days i'll be doing it... and with nonvegan food :shock: Incredible idiocy.

Day 40

Posing for 1 hour.
Had a little posing show in the evening at a friend's gym party :)

Day 41
REST!

Day 42

Easy pump-workout, 10-15 reps each set, to deplete my storages of carbs in the muscles. Did a whole body workout, but not the legs, they're supposed to be more shredded that way on saturday.
I was WEAK - crap low carb i tell ya! :lol:

Cardio for warm up (as always, but i've never written that extra in the log).
2 Bench press / pull ups super sets.
2 Barbell row / dips super sets.
2 Barbell press / upright row super sets.
2 sets SL deadlift.
1 set barbell curls.
1 set calves.
Crunches and side crunches.
30 min cardio.

Tomorrow something similar, and wednesday.

Greetz,
Daywalker ;)

Day 43

20 min on the bike.

Again, an easy workout just to deplete my storages of carbs further.

2 Bench press / chin ups super sets.
2 Barbell row / dips super sets.
2 lateral raise / Barbell press super sets.
1 set barbell curls.
1 set calves.
Tried out two machines i've never done before (and won't do again :twisted: ): Kind of a incline bench machine and a pullover machine, one set each. Those machines are crap, i prefer free weights any time.
Crunches and side crunches.
20 min cardio.

Totally FORGOT the SL deadlift :? Must be the lack of glucose...

Hey, what do you think of me!?
Of course i'm gonna post results! I'll show pics, rant about unfair judges (only if i didn't win :lol: ), tell you bits about the time backstage and onstage ... more information than you wanted! :lol:
You're family, of course i'll tell you! :D

Okay, i know. :roll:
I'm looking forward to the weekend, too!
I AM! :x

And i'm also looking forward to the carb-loading :twisted: :roll:

Today i spoke to the organizer of the competition. He told me it is possible that i can take part in international competitions as well - two weeks later in the US ;)
Unfortunately, though, i have to pay for everything (flight, hotel etc.) myself, so this is not gonna happen :(
But one week after the German Championship is the Swiss Championship, i could start there in the international class. Would be fun, but i guess i'll reject the opportunity. It's still too expensive, and i have three more contests in november/december. Did i already tell you about that?? The last is the WORLD Championship! This year it takes place here in Germany, and if i qualify one week earlier, yea, that'd be awesome! 8)

4 competitions are enough - i want to eat and bulk again :lol:

Thanks for the sympathy! I appreciate it!
I'll do my best to make you all proud!

Love and peace,
Daywalker
:)
