Also, there was some kind of a hair style contest thread somewhere. Please don't close it until I participate!




AHHHHHHHCK! Feel better Turku. I hate getting sick. It set me back two weeks at the very start of the year right when i wanted to start hitting the weights hard for the comp. You'll get back at it.

Don't listen to Zack either; he's WEAK. >:-)

The best hair contest was the thread i started, Richard is the only one that has stepped up to the plate so far! I hope we can get more entries and OF COURSE i will eagerly wait in anticipation of your entry once you feel better. Here's the link:

BACK IN ACTION!

I started eating 4k calories a day, in two chest training sessions i went from 5 reps of 185 to 10 easy reps (felt like i had 12 or 13) + 5 @ 205..

Undereating for a year, and almost no progression, time for you to catch me. ;)

Not bragging, it's just our strength is similar i like to compete with you. :D

I totally second you. It's GREAT to have a friendly competition going on all the time. It makes you push harder in every workout! I wish I could eat 4k calories a day... I've been a bit lazy and hardly had 3k kcal (3Mcal? :)) a day.

Yeah, the fever & stuff... I had really hard influenza for a whole week and this week has been a lousy training week since I've had to take real easy since I'm still feeling weak.

Thanks John V, L&G and Robert! I'm really happy it's over!

OK, the training:

Wed 28th January

1h 45mins bboying

Thu 29th January

1h 45mins bboying (as a substitute for my friend)

Mon 2nd February

2h 15mins bboying (really light action since I felt sick already)

Mon 9th February

2h 15mins bboying (really light since I still felt sick) :roll:

Tue 10th February

Light workout just to get some feeling back

- Bench press, barbell: 12 + 12 @ 62kg
- Incline bench press, barbell: 12 + 12 @ 62kg
- Standing shoulder press, barbell: 8 + 8 @ 44kg

Wed 11th February

1h 45mins bboying

Sun 15th February

- Deadlift, barbell: warm up @ 92kg, then 6 + 6 @ 130kg (287 lbs). Not bad but not good either
- Bent-over row, barbell: 3 x 12 @ 70kg
- Bicep curls, curl bar: 3 x 12 @ 40kg

Next week: hitting it hard again!

Yeah buddyyyy!! Back on it and soon back at my earlier weights. And soon after that, A LOT MORE! :boxer:

Tue 17th February

- Bench press, barbell: warm up @ 50kg, then 5+f + 6 @ 84kg
- Incline bench press, barbell: 8 + 6 @ 72kg
- Dips: 17 + 17 @ bw
- Standing shoulder press, behind neck, barbell: 7 @ 41kg

I planned to do more shoulder presses but my back is still sore from sunday's training. I'm amazed how I got in bad shape so quickly. 2 weeks and my back gets sore for doing a couple of reps. :?

Tuukka! Is that the right spelling?

Glad you're at it 100% and the reg nums are going to be put up and manhandled. Also your avatar continues to get more and more frightening. GEEZ.

Just out of curiosity, what does your future months look like in regards to bulking/maintaining/cutting?

I need some dance cardio; if we're not training, we're dancing! Get in on that best hair 2009 thread. Need you pic up or i'll snatch one from old threads. I may put an outrageous doo up just for fun but not include it in the contest....

Keep eating bro; anyone that is wondering how they can pack it down should come straight to this thread and check out the beast in action 8)

Yep, L&G, Tuukka is correct. I should be back @ 100 % this week. The avatar is partly frightening because of filter I used in photoshop... but body proportions are unmodified, obviously!

I should be bulking but I've been way too lazy to eat huge amounts of food. Well, I lost some of my belly but it'll come back as I start eating like a horse again.

BTW, awesome profile!!! Loves it!

Wed 25th February

1h 45mins bboying

Thu 26th February

- Deep squat, barbell: warm up @ 52kg, then 6 + 6 @ 84kg, 8 @ 68kg (still not that pretty reps :/ )
- Bicep curls, curl bar: 12 + 12 + 12 @ 40kg

Also, I'm now SPROUTING!

I got a power plug adapter for my automated sprouter today (I had to order an adapter from Hong Kong since they don't sell them in Finland) and now it's finally usable. I've never sprouted before, but now that it is just TOO easy (no soaking, just add water every 1-2 days and that's it) I will start eating sprouts every day!

I'll keep you updated by taking daily pics of my harvest. :popcorn:

Good job, L&G! You got 4/5 right! The middle one is fenugreek. (I said here before he got 5/5 right but I got lost in translation) :) I still have to get some bboying pics, then I'll send my profile. You'll see harvest soon, already sprouts almost visible!

Mon 2nd March

2h 30mins bboying

Tue 3rd March

- Bench press, barbell: warm up @ 50kg and 66kg, then 3 (-> leg cramp :evil: ) + 4 (-> another leg cramp :evil: :evil: :evil: ) @ 86kg (BAD!)
- Incline bench press, barbell: 8 + 8 @ 72kg (GOOD!)
- Dips: 19 + 22 + 17 @ bw (GOOD!)
- Lateral raises, dumbbells: 8 + 10 + 10 @ 14kg (GOOD!)

After 24 hours, remember: no pre-soaking or anything!

Image

And again after 48 hours:

Wed 4th March

1h 45mins bboying. Took quite easy since I wasn't feeling too good. In the evening I got some fever and major stomach pain, must be some virus or something since there's a lot of that going on here. I feel better already but I think I'll rest today since I still feel funny.
