Thank you. In regards to your weekend carb refeeds....is it a controlled refeed? As in...pretty much just adding healthy carbs on top of  your Mon-Fri foods? Or do you just relax your entire diet for those 2 days and just eat what you fancy? Thanks again for your post.

Ahh....good stuff. Thank you for the replies. As you get closer to your contest dates....do you make the refeeds cleaner? Or shorten the days from 2 to 1? Hope these arent too many questions. I have found your take on nutrition as well as your training to really cut through the bullshit. Good stuff.

I only clean it last couple weeks as I conscious about not ruining what I have done
I do something slightly different prep week than the norm but I got the info from someone who makes money prepping so its unfair for me to give away that bit.

quick update, looked better today, was a bit flat last week and looked shitty, upper body chest and shoulders quite defined, legs coming through, still got my normal bit of fat around my abs and low back, always last to come off these days, never used to be, was always glutes in the past.

there is truth in that the creation of fat cells in an area always come back once they have been there, I never had fat on my abs until I stopped training in the late 90s, once its on it never really goes away permanently.

none...
I did a couple of weeks last year but stopped when I decided I wasnt competing in November

I should do some for general health, but for burning fat its just easier to eat less...

Training split at the moment? If I am correct...twice a week per bodyparts. Moderate volume of sets? Just basing that upon from what I recall reading in older posts.

I train instinctively, I dont have a bodypart in mind until I get to the gym.

I do chest arms
Back Shoulders
legs
sometimes back arms
chest shoulders

Sets I dont count, around 6 per exercise, do lots of drops and partials
I only use moderate poundages

Guy at the gym today told me had been off injured after tearing both quads on two separate accidents
one on pendulum squats using 100k and one on single leg leg extensions

he always says I dont train heavy enough.  Roll Eyes

Yes...I agree.  Too many guys concerned about pushing mega heavy weight. After I tore my left pec in 98....my surgeon...who used to be a competive bodybuilder as well as a competitive powerlifter told me to start training smarter and to concern myself with training longetivity. I was in my 20's at the time and stubborn, but I started to pick the brains of older bodybuilders in my gym at the time during my recovery and 90% of them told me the same thing. To pull the heavy weight ego out of my ass. Seems like building a balanced and muscular competitive bodybuilding physique got mixed up with maximal poundages somewhere along the line. I tend to feel that the early 90's appearance of Yates and his training philosophy caused a ton of this. I know it definitely influenced me at the time to go heavier and heavier and to implement forced reps and other risk inducing methods which helped me toward tearing my pec. My years prior to that...I trained way smarter, moderate poundages and other techniques that stimulated the muscle. I was and still am a big proponent of drop sets and also very very brief rest periods between sets. Thanks again for sharing your insight and this thread.

Do you do much in the way of supplements? I am talking vitamins/minerals here. Aminos, Glutamine, Creatine?

BCAAS and occasionally whey, that's it.

I have used all sorts in the past but they don't make any difference, seem a waste of money to me.

I use  vit C prep week
