4 Weeks out of the Big O !!
August 29th, 2009

the countdown to the final 4 weeks has begun. Iím back home for a week now and my training is going really,really good. Iím back to my old style heavy training like back in the days for atleast 2 more weeks before I drop it down a bit. Iím injury free and super motivated which of course came from winning 2 shows back to back.
My weight is right where I want it to be at this point since our goal was to add a few pounds after the shows and fill out with still great condition. So far everything George and I planned happend just like we thought it should.
After I returned from Vancouver we adjusted my diet a bit with higher carbs.
My calorie intake was like follows

calories 3387
protein 435.5g
carbs 302.5g
fat 47.9g
sodium 1565mg

then 2 days ago we adjusted again to

calories 3044
protein 423.8g
carbs 234.7g
fat 45.3g
sodium 1547mg

we will probaly adjust on a weekly basis from here on out but the scale is not whats important for me, this time itís all about condition since I know that I have enough size and donít have to worry about anybody making me look small.

I feel real good about my prep this year and like I mentioned before itís possible to get better with each show and Iím about to prove that to everybody who thinks itís not possible.

Stay tuned for more updates

MORE carbs?

for fuck sake

Q: Last October I attended Dutch Grand Prix and had a chance to talk to many of my
bodybuilding heroes. Interestingly, once I started asking them several questions I have
realized that all of them train and diet differently. When I continued with specific
questions about contest preparation, I learned that some of the great champions (like
Dorian, Ronnie and Dennis James) count their calories and choose only several
different foods ( chicken, steak, egg whites, oatmeal, potatoes and vegetables),
while others (like Dexter Jackson, Cormier and supposedly Flex and Shawn) donít.
What is your approach?

A: As you just noticed it is possible to use many different methods of training and dieting
and accomplish outstanding results. You mentioned the names of probably the very best
bodybuilders in the last decade and as you realized they all have different beliefs about th
contest preparation. I am actually very close to some of them, and I am very familiar with
their programs. My friend Dennis, for example, is so precise that he would not miss any
of his meals for even a minute. Does he count calories? He measures everything he eats
and he would not use a single gram (of either protein, carbohydrates or fat) more or less
than what was planned. Here is example of his exact diet for the Mr. Olympia
competition (starting 16 weeks out):

4:30 AM protein shake (mixed proteins) total of 60 grams of protein, no carbs
5:30 AM 1 HOUR CARDIO
7:30 AM 150 grams of Oatmeal (80 grams of carbs), 15 egg whites (60 grams of protein)
10 AM    Training
11 AM    Postworkout drink (60 grams of protein, 150 grams of simple carbohydrates)

12:30 PM 300 grams of rice (120 grams of carbs), 300 g of Chicken breast (70g protein)
3 PM        300 grams of rice (120 g of carbs), 300 g of Lean Steak (60 g of protein)
5 PM        300 grams of rice (120 g of carbs), 300 g of Chicken breast (70 g of protein)
6 PM     Training
7:30 PM   Postworkout drink ( 60 g protein, 150 g simple carbs)
9:30 PM   300 grams of steak (60 g protein), 250 g mixed vegetables ( 30 g of carbs)
Midnight -  Protein shake ( 60 g of protein).

Exciting, is in it? I would go crazy on this kind of diet, but Dennis actually enjoyed it!
If anyone can believe this Ė he complained that he was constantly hungry?!?

I gotta go with the midget from Sweden on this one "dustin."
DJ is known for having huge carb-ups and then coming in looking all bloated.
His midsection has been distended for a number of years, and by all evidence, it's not returning any time soon, if ever.

Sorry to disappoint you, but Dennis James isnt GH15.  Considering he was at dinner at the other table with friends while we are in Dallas while GH15 posted, I can certainly vouch for that.

Hi Ron! Did you hear the news? These computer geeks in Silicon Valley invented this whacky thig-a-mah-jig called the 'Smart Phone' - not only is it a phone, but you can use one of these thingies to actually surf the web...even while you're at dinner with a bunch of schmoes! Amazing how in 100 years we've gone from riding on horseback to posting on Getbig from Sizzler!

Did you actually read the blog post? Higher carbs meant 302 grams a day. He then went down to 234 grams. Still pretty low carb.
