Chest:

Tri-Set:
{Smith Incline 1+1/2`s:
3 x 10 (1+1/2 reps counts as one rep,try these,really tough)

3 x 10-12

Pump Set:
Flyes:
1 to failure with 50 pounds (I got 16 reps)

I was pretty tired today and my legs are shot/sore, so I figured I`d do some Tri-Sets as you don`t really need to go real heavy if there is no rest between exercises.

3 x 15,12,10

Pump Set:
Stiff-Arm Pulldowns:
8 plates-15,drop to 6 plates for 10 more

Great workout,especially for being kinda` beat up!

Todays Diet:

Meal 1 -Pre-workout:
1 scoop whey in water

Meal 2 -Post Workout:
1 scoop whey in water

Let me see,I started cleaning up my diet in March and officially started my pre-contest diet on April 11th................lost 21-22 pounds.

For me this time around,I decided to enter later than I normally would,plus I had never gotten as fat before in my entire life......my waist was up to 39 inches due to pigging out on junk food,no cardio,reduced training frequency, and a general lack of enthusiasm for training,plus a new medication I was taking for depression puts extra weight on just about everyone who takes it.

So I was actually pretty terrible looking, and did have a deadline with a lot of fat to lose plus less time to do it in.

I am carb sensitive so I never really eat too high amounts (unless it`s in the form of apple pie)  Grin

Losing slowly is definately the right thing to do as it helps you to retain size.

Train hard and good luck!

I`m starving and this is the only way to satisfy my hunger.

I only ate 5 meals today though as I wasn`t active at all other than the 30 minutes of cardio I did.

Just looked at myself in the mirror  after a nap and I`m getting really ripped.

Makes me feel a bit more confident that things are working.

Never been to those two gyms though I`ve always wanted to train at both of them at least once.

I`m from Springfield in Western Mass.

I trained at Golds in West Springfield the last few years before I moved up here to Northern NY state.

I would like to ask you about water intake..do you drink water only WITH Meals or as well as between?

Ive heard Farah recommends having water ONLY when you eat a meal.

I drink a shit load of water all day and night,plus waaaay too much  coffee.

I only have one off day these days and that`s on Sunday....I might even do cardio at home if I feel the need to.

I would probably leave them the same or even increase them in preperation for the upcoming week of training.

If I look shitty in my opinion,I may lower them..........kind of an instinctive thing with me.

Carbs are not an essential macro,though they are the bodys preferred source of fuel and the body burns them first for energy over fat or protein,so If I go low or zero carbs,I like to think of it as if I`m burning bodyfat as fuel,instead of sugar/carbs.

Tired as all hell today,but looked harder.

Gonna` try to get more sleep tonight if possible and get up and do it all over again.

Training every bodypart twice weekly is tough,but I think it`s helping.

Poundages have dropped a bit due to my weight loss,lack of sleep,and low carbs,but I`m resting less between sets so the weights still feel pretty heavy.

24 days out and counting!!
