Thanks a lot! :) actually i'm not THAT massive... but the more my body fat decreases, the more massive i look...

When i'm preparing for a contest people often ask me if i had gained some muscle mass and weight, and then they're quite surprised hearing that i actually LOST weight... :)
You can achieve a lot without meat and roids... if everything fits together: patience, discipline, perseverance, correct training and nutrition...and of course proper genetics. But even without outstanding genetics a lot is possible!

Yesterday's workout:

Squats
Ass-on-the-grass-squats
Leg extensions
Romanian deadlift
Pull ups
Chin ups
Seated cable row (close grip)
Seated cable row ( wide grip)
Dumbbell biceps curls
Hammer curls
Bench press
Decline bench press
Bent over dips
Barbell up right row (close & wide grip)
Seated dumbbell shoulder press
Standing dumbbell two arm triceps extension
Cable triceps pushdown

My battered knee is aching during the workout and givin me some imbalance while i'm squatting... but i GOTTA do something... or my legs will look worse and worse. Gotta fight my way through it!

Arvid I too do a whole body work out every other day, and on off day I'm doing some cardio and stretching/yoga. To bad were not closer I could use a training partner. Train hard show is approaching.

That's quite unusual... ;) most people think i'm kind of weird caus i don't do split training :)

But i like to train this "oldschool" way... on the days where i don't visit the gym, i do some training for my abs and calves at home...

Oh yes, i will train hard! I'm really focused on my contest now!
