“NO GUTS NO GLORY”

Here I am 9/22/08 back at it with a new mind set, attitude, and new goals!

If you thought my 18 week journey to my first show was nuts “brothers oh brothers” hold onto your crotch because this is going to be wild, bumpy, and crazy ride >)

http://forum.animalpak.com/showthread.php?t=19234

My first official amateur off-season, wow does it feel phenomenal to be able to eat more food and get ready to move heavy weight again. I have been bodybuilding since January 2008 and have achieved high and great honors in my career already especially after my first show on 9/13/08. This leaves me with feelings of accomplishments but phening for more to see where I will begin to take myself and see my full potential. Enough of the bullshit already, let me just get down to the nitty gritty of what’s about to go down and what to expect. Right now I do not know when and where my next show is, but I do know that the next time I step on stage I will be BETTER than I was the previous time. My main goal for my off season is to put on massive amounts of lean muscle mass and keep my bf% / gains very low, I am aiming for nothing higher than 15%. I am currently 182 lbs, I gained about 12 lbs post the show from taking a week off and EATING!!!!

Let’s start with training, I will be lifting 4 days a week, and doing cardio 1 to 2 times a week pending. Right now I have two different schedules I will be working with to adjust to my life and in case things pop up. Right now I will start with a Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday lifting schedule with cardio done on Wednesdays, and the weekend completely off. The other schedule I will work with when I consume more calories is Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday lifting with cardio on Wednesday and Friday, and Sundays completely off. This way as I consume more calories I can maintain a low bf %. So days that I train I will do 20 min of pwo cardio and my cardio days just 30 minutes of strong cardio. I will def not be doing AM cardio during my off season unless I MUST, other wise all my training will be done in the PM after work.

I want to finish my off-season weight about 205 -215 lbs, I can def do this being I used to be 225 when I played football in college. Just maintaining leanness is the main concern and goal. After speaking with the judges and the President of the OCB they said my main focus should be is put on some dense mass. So after hearing that, this is my main goal, so when I step on stage next time I don’t just wow the crowd, I blow them out the stadium. My dieting will be CLEAN, CLEAN, CLEAN, and, CLEAN. Everyone knows that dieting is the key to success; I will start off easy and begin my off season at 2000 calories. I am going to eventually work my way up to 4000 calories and maintaining that through out my off season. I am working and planning on where I will do something along those lines of a 4 week bulk and cut back for 3 weeks. This is not 100% yet but you will see and get what I will do, just follow and you will see how I will do and get busy, yyeezziirr!

I will also be splitting up my dieting and will have two different diets. I will have a diet for training days and diet for non training days, the main thing is on my off days where I am just doing cardio or am completely off I am taking in 200 to 500 fewer calories that are needed to keep fat gains to a very minimum. Also now I know this is the off season and room for leniency for cheating and sneaking in little snacks and treats. I finally learned and figured out a way to cheat during my off season without going crazy and bloating and gaining fat mass. So I will stick with my diet 100%, but form time to time will see me sneak in a little treat or snack. Also if you have not seen my post I have a bulletin with recipes that I love that will allow me to cheat but CHEAT SMART which is the key!

http://forum.animalpak.com/showthread.php?t=20282

Supplements, now this is going to be another key to my success, now we all live by ANIMAL products. Obviously I do being they assisted me in reaching my goals. I will not lie, I won’t be on as many PAKS or any really besides THE PAK as I previously was, reason being is I will be eating more food plus MONEY lol. I really can’t afford to break bank for supp’s. So I am sticking with basics and keeping it as simple as possible.

Supplements
ANIMAL PAK – Come on now this is the core and foundation of any supplementation aresenal!
ANIMAL FLEX – I have a whole can and half a can left over from my show prep so I will finish them off.
ANIMAL OMEGA – I have a few packs left over and will kill off but use mainly on my training days till I run out.
Universal Uni-Liver – Will start with 2 per meal then work up to 4!
Universal Real Gains - Will only drink when I can not eat a meal, but always great to have!
Universal Whey Protein – Will only use in cooking recipes and when need something quick, always great to have!
Universal Torrent – Will only use when I do not have time to eat a PWO meal!
Universal Storm – Will use for pre-workout and occasional pwo, plus lasts a long time!
Universal Shock Therapy – Will use for pre-work out no/pump in place of ANIMAL PUMP, plus lasts a long time!
Universal Super Cuts 3 – Will use to keep the fat gains to a minimal!
Universal Intra-Aid – Will use during training sessions to keep feeding the body!
Universal EAA Stak – Will use when needed, can always use this stuff especially WATERMELON!
Off Brand Glutamine – Will use 2 times per day, great amino for repairing and healing!
Off Brand Fish Oil – Will pop one with every meal on my non training days until I run out of OMEGA!
Off Brand Glucosamine – Will use 1 serving a day when I run out of FLEX!
ANIMAL Journey Log-Book – Will use 4 times a week lmao!

ANIMALS welcome to the danger zone………………………ARE YOU READY?

I have not been using all of my Universal/Animal supp's.....YET!

Mainly been using THE PAK, FLEX, OMEGA, and UNI-LIVER

I got a $#!T load of free samples (off-brand) and supplements from my show that I have been using instead. I have been using them as in the same scheme as I would my Universal/ANIMAL products, mainly because they are all one in the same thing.

Pre-WO/NO Products
Intra/Amino-Creatine-Glutamine Products
Post-WO/Creatine-Glutamine-Protein Products

Reason being is fuck it I got AAAA LLLOOTTTT of free shit so why waste them when I can save up on my Universal/ANIMAL products for the hard long run. I have been watching the threads about the PRE/INTRA/POST windows with Intra-Aid coming out and I have figured out what I will be doing and using when I hop on my Universal $#!t >)

STAY TUNED

I wish I can enjoy being a fat boy that much, I had a serious post show bloat so I am just trying to cut that fat gain down to keep gains to a minimal fat gain!

Working so far, I will eventually ease up on the cardio!

Everything is looking pretty solid my man!

These first two weeks haven't gotten off to such the great start that I was hoping for, due to traveling, running around, and spending with family!

I mean I haven't been missing meals, my lifts have been good and strong, and have only had 3 cheat meals in 14 days, just with traveling and getting ready to move, and other personal bs it still isn't perfect!

BBBUUTTTT there is so much time left that I am not going to kill myself with stress!

I have tubs of Real Gains, Iso-Whey, and Torrent!

I really only use any of the three if I am on the run, need something quick, or just do not feel like making or prepping that meal lol!

So yeah I def use any of those three in m diet, I just like to stick to whole foods because I stay full and less hungry, plus I just love to eat instead of drink lmao!

I noticed you use salsa in both your bulk diet and precontest diet.. is that mainly just to add some flavor?? Just curious. I might have to pick this up.

The salsa is def an adder for some flavor, salt and pepper can be just too bland and plain!

Plus you can put it on a lot of foods like eggs, chicken, steak, veggies, whatever!

There is not fat, no excess sodium, plus it helps you get those very little extra veggies in!

I find salsa to be a great flavor substitute and additive with out adding extra fat, calories, and blah blah blah.

During my cut for my show I eventually cut it out the last two weeks, but during my off season I use the recommended servings hat are on the label usually salsa is 2 tbspns, I also use bbq sauces, marinades, and other things during my off season.

The top two I use are SALSA AND MRS. DASH SAUCES

So what's your plan for cardio? Gonna trim it down to 2 or 3 days a week?

I have doing some looking and research on here and on bb.com and saw somethings that caught my eye!

I have two choices of what I can do for cardio

Workout 1
I can do 20-30 minutes of LI cardio after my lifting sessions and on my off days I take completely off (no lifting/no cardio)!

Workout 2
I can do no cardio after lifting, and do 30 minutes of HIT cardio on my off days (no lifting)!

So basically I will either be doing 30 minutes of LI cardio 4 days a week after my lifts or HIT cardio twice a week on my off days. This way I am not over training and over doing it and it gives me choices based on how I am feeling that day/week.

I like your thoughts on that, and you can switch it up from week to week. I've been slowly weening myself off of cardio, and i'm finding it harder to do than I thought it would be since I have been doing it for sooooo long. This is definitely the answer i've been looking for to how to handle cardio during my next bulk.

Glad I was of service and able to help!

Today is a schweet day because I am completely off and am going straight home and taking a nap lmao!

Let me know how it works out for you, I just started this method this week, so I will see how it works. From what I saw/read even though on your day off (no cardio/no lifting) as long as you maintain cardio year round, proper training, and proper diet your body stays at high metabolic rate even on your days of doing nothing!

Will do. I do have to say that 20-30 mins of cardio 4 days (5 in my case) seems excessive while on a bulk, even if it is light - what do you define as "light cardio"? Just don't want to waste the calories, but understand that keeping as much fat off as possible is important as well.

My post work-out cardio is basically going to be on the treadmill on an incline at 4.0 mph!

Yeah I am still eating more chicken than red meat do to keep my lean gains at a maximum!

I have my one serving of RED meat a day, but eventually will switch up when I want to switch up my diet and so forth. This diet I am on now is just for 12 weeks then I am taking a week off then going on another diet, I like switching it up and keep my body guessing lifting and diet wise!

I am def still growing on the off days, but I am a believer that your body doesn't need as many cal's and certain amounts of macro nutrients on off days. The things that i drop the most are my carbs. From what I have read and researched is that if you constantly juggle and cycle your carbs you are always tricking your body because it thinks it is going to get the same everyday and when it doesn't and you juggle it, it turns your metabolism into a fat burning machine.

I like this method and I feel comfy with it, plus I am still eating good amounts of food on my off days to keep my full.

Thanks bro i am pushing!

From what I have read and researched is that if you constantly juggle and cycle your carbs you are always tricking your body because it thinks it is going to get the same everyday and when it doesn't and you juggle it, it turns your metabolism into a fat burning machine.

I like this method and I feel comfy with it, plus I am still eating good amounts of food on my off days to keep my full.

Thanks bro i am pushing!

ALSO JUST BECAUSE YOU DON'T SEE IT DOESN'T MEAN IT'S NOT THERE

Meaning that trust me cheeseburgers, burritos, and pop-tarts are my best friend at time lmao!

Right on brother, looking forward to see the end result of this bulk

Nice numbers and good workout!! Still doing Cardio in your off season?

Thanks!

Of course I am; cardio in my eyes (and this is my opinion) should be done year round!

Besides it helps keep my fat gains to a very minimum, it helps with my muscle conditioning which in turn will help with my heavy lifts, also doing cardio helps increase your appetite, so like now when I am eating 7 meals a day cardio helps keep my appetite going so I can eat and grow. Also cardio helps with "duration" meaning that I can last longer during my lifts and get those extra reps as compared to not doing cardio.

So I choose to do cardio year round as in my eyes it is required; but that is my opinion).

Plus i only do cardio 2 to 4 times a week for a maximum of 30 minutes, whether it be post training or on my off day!

I like your ideas. Now will you vary in how long you do cardio in your off season and contest season?

Mr. Aestheticz
10-21-08, 10:36 am
I have doing some looking and research on here and on bb.com and saw somethings that caught my eye!

I have two choices of what I can do for cardio

Workout 1
I can do 20-30 minutes of LI cardio after my lifting sessions and on my off days I take completely off (no lifting/no cardio)!

Workout 2
I can do no cardio after lifting, and do 30 minutes of HIT cardio on my off days (no lifting)!

So basically I will either be doing 30 minutes of LI cardio 4 days a week after my lifts or HIT cardio twice a week on my off days. This way I am not over training and over doing it and it gives me choices based on how I am feeling that day/week.

This is a previous post on page 5 I think!


I like your ideas. Now will you vary in how long you do cardio in your off season and contest season?

Check it out this is what I have been doing, but lately been doing 30 minutes of LI after training and taking Tuesdays Thursdays and Sundays completely off, and I have noticed that I have been growing quicker and cutting more fat.

I noticed you said "Halloween Party" - to me that says......."I'm getting wasted" lol. With Halloween around the corner, what are your views on drinking in the off-season (obviously drinking is outlawed pre-contest).

I have gotten drunk twice so far in my off-season (did I fail to mention that lmao)!

I mean we all know alcohol is empty calories that our body does not use, and all these other allegations that it lowers testosterone and all this other blah blah blah (to me that applies to someone who drinks consistently everyday)!

There is nothing wrong with enjoying yourself and going out to have a few drinks with your friends, family, or significant other. Real quick my fiancee is my biggest supporter and fan, so when I sacrifice when getting ready for a show or something else she has to sacrifice. When i can't eat out she can't eat out, when I have to stop what I am doing to eat she has to stop as well.

She has sacrificed a lot out of her life and knows what the future holds because my plans become her plans. I made a promise to her that I would be very lenient at times (mainly twice a month) if she wanted to go out to eat , or for a few drinks, or both. So this past weekend we went out for a few drinks (ok a lot of drinks lmao).

There is nothing wrong with having some drinks during your off-season in my eyes as long it is not abused. I tend to have BACARDI AND DIET COKE OR GREY GOOSE ON THE ROCKS. I try to eliminate those excess sugars and calories form juices and beers. Also better believe the very next day my ass is on the treadmill doing cardio to burn some of it off.

I mean it is only 1 day out of the week (not Monday through Sunday like college lol), plus I still make sure my diet is 100% on course and on point, and if i know we are going out for a few drinks I drop my calories for that day so I am not adding more and more to my daily in take. So this weekend there will be no drinking (it is a party but nothing like that, more like a kid party for the kid sin her family lol), so diet soda or Hawaiian punch will be flowing lmao.

Right on brother, i'm the same way. I usually only drink on saturday and once in a great while on friday - and I too do the barcardi and diet or just whatever on the rocks. I used to drink 6 to 7 days out of the week (which would sometimes result in a 13-14 day binge) while I was in college, and yes I still woke up and lifted went to class, etc (my gpa was higher during this period than all of my college career - 3.5!). People read your journey and I thought this would be a topic worthy of discussion.

I have been doing a lot of look at my procedures and how I have been going about with my diet and I have come to realize I do not like it at all and it is very annoyinig!

I thought that keeping track and trace of every calorie would benefit me, I have come to realize it is fucking annoying and a pain in my ass. It would have me on edge always worrying about over eating and so forth. Fuck it I am not getting ready for a show so I do not need to keep as on my diet (count and track of calories) as much as I have been.

I have also realized that this diet i was trying was not working for me. I am just gonna stick with simplet meals and simple food choices, I was trying ot get too fancy and too pretty. I mean I will not be getting sloppy and be like fuck and gorge. I will just make smarter choices just go with the flow of how I am feeling appetite wise and so forth.

So i will no longer be poasting my diets and sof forth, if anything the only things I will be posting are my supps!

That's the same approach i'm going to take. I'm just going to make sure I get the protein in I want per day (atleast 2g per lb), and if i'm hungry i'm going to eat regardless of when my last meal was. I'm keeping my carb sources clean for the most part during the week - and I enjoy myself and do a little straying on the weekends.

Honestly bro it has been more of an effect on my stomach internals than more of a fat burner!

What I am saying is that it has had a pretty crappy effect on my stomach with a lot of gas and farting, plus it always makes my stomach gurgle/bubble!

I would stick with CUTS if I was you, Super Cuts I would rate 5 out of 10!

Honestly there is no fat with Torrent and when you mix carbs and protein there is an insulin spike that can increase fat gains, so I eat the pb besides the fact I love it but it helps control insulin spike and fat gain!

Alright as everyone can see my numbers have gone up eexxttrreemmeelly!

My dieting has been on point and my training has been intense, hard, and heavy!

I am officially 200lbs now with a bf% of 13% >), my legs are huge my back is sick, and I am gaining slow but great progress fillingin my chest!

Once again sorry that I have been MIA but i have no access to a computer what so ever!

I am trying my best to stay in touch and keep you all up to par, I have finally dcided that this journey will go on for another 88 weeks, meaning that i am taking a hradcore 2 years off until my next show!

i am loving the progress and results that I am seeing and have been getting, also with the move to NC I will need more time to get established and settled before i can worry about my next show. My fiancee and I are cccrrrraazzyyyy busy.

This is great news though brothers, this means you get to ride with me for a very long time and see just how fucking sick I will get, glad you all are sticking with me as long as you all are, I miss this place so fucking much and it sux i can not be on like I used to. Soon brother soon!

I Put 1/2 Cup Of Oatmeal, 4 Egg White, A Banana, And 2 Packets Of Splenda In 2 Seperate Blenders (fyi I Have The Magic Bullet)!

This Makes 10 Ounces Of Batter In Each Container/bullet Whatever!

I Use A 1/4 Of Batter Each Time Which Makes 10 Pancakes!

These Are Phenomenal For The Last Meal Of The Day, I Either Use Natty P/b Or Recently I Bought Some Nutella (hhheeeaavveeennn)!

Switching things up a little working on frequency!

Doing this can lead to great hypertrophy and real solid gains, people think you would be over training when in actuality if you really look at it i am doing 3 exercises for each body part on three different days w/ 2 sets equalling 6 total sets.

This leads to great strength and deelopment and puts the body into a great shock!

I like how you plan everything out and write it down for us to see. Is this more a diet to maintain or are you trying to gain?? Just curious. I am using pretty much the same supplements as you are right now minus the EAA stack. I went to shock/storm to give myself a break from pump. Take care!

This is a diet that I have made trial and error with and found that with this diet I have great strength gains and am able to maintain and keep my lean mass gains!

Long story short, I want to pack on as much weight as possible (mainly reach 225) and keep my bf% to an extreme low!

This diet is def working with the mixture of real low glycemic carbs and veggies and lean proteins with three different type of protein along with the supps.

I am also using super cuts to help trim fat and keep excess water off and that helps extremely also!

SO i am very satisfied with my diet and progress since hopping on it, plus I am tyring to lean up a little for the arenold classic lmao I can not go looking sloppy and represent ANIMAL!

I took a week off from training after training 12 weeks straight, I am 5 weeks into my secodn 12 week rotation! I will be switching my routines up every 3 weeks leadin gup to the ARNOLD!

The first three weeks I was training 6 times a week training each body part twice a week. Once day to focus on mass and strength and the other to do shape and conditioning (it worked out really well), but let me tell you tooka toll on my body!

I am now training 5 days a week, then the next three weeks will be training 4, and maybe the last three 3 times but prolly 4. I am doing this to tear the body down as much as possible in the beginning so that towards the last few week my body can repair quicker with more rest days and make greater gains.

This is an experiment I am trying and finding that it is really working well, weeks 7-9 FYI will be my RAW power building with heavy squats, bench, deads, etc. probably doing a 5 x 5 routine!

One thing that I have realized is that bodybuilding is about discovering anf trial and error and finding what best works for you, fuck what you read in magazines and all this other bullshit. Do not get it twisted there is absolutely nothing wrong with reading and researching and taking bits an pieces here and there.

What I am saying is that remember what works for one doesn't for the other, so find out what works best fo ryou and stick with it with little changes here and there.

My genral numbers are I weigh 207 and have 13% bf, NOT BAD!
