Ro's Training and Diet Thread
« on: August 18, 2014, 09:15:08 AM »
Welcome to my new page where I will continue to share my bodybuilding endeavors and maybe more. I am in the zone now with my preparations and will be going out to Helsinki to compete in the Wabba Universe the 3rd weekend in November. 3 weeks prior I may step on stage at Wabba Ireland in Derry and defend my overall title there for the 3rd year. I am also guest posing at the BSN Classic August 31st in Belfast.

Its not all about me though so I welcome your interaction. Maybe this can be a space of learning and inspiration for all of us.

5 sets hack sled press 200kg x 10
3 sets each leg bulgarian lunges with 25kg kettlebells x 10
3 sets static wall hold x 1min, 45seconds,30seconds

Maybe go back for more this evening or just CV.

Nice to have a target on the calendar to work towards. Hopefully this thread contributes to your motivation and that of the other people that post here.

What you going to do differently this prep?

I am not sure yet what will be different, we will have to see. One thing is keeping my muscles from building up restrictive tension which can cramp the physique and hinder flow. Also do not want my neck,traps and delts to get too big which can happen once the tren is introduced. Also I may not run my dosages as high closer to the show as it makes the body ravenous in the later stages and the mind stressed needing more food to balance things out. GH will be added.

I want to experience a new scene. Perhaps my look will be more suited to it. Not ready to turn Ifbb pro so don't want to get lost in the pack. Nabba I have experienced and they reward the freak factor first so I aint got that.

I've found with ukfbb getting your face seen helps alot, if you have pro aspirations you want to be getting noticed, pics in the beef and UK flex etc... You have a great physique may aswell make the most if it.. Nabba has always went for chunky monkeys

If and when I am ready to give that a shot it would be through the Ribbf. Winning the overall national title does not allow you to get a pro card, one has to go to compete at one of the arnold classics or the world championships, therefore it is harder for an Irishman to turn pro. I think loyalty is the main bone with the Ribbf.

Great lat insertions. You brought up your arms very well, it's a strong point now.

From the pics of your last competition you could be holding less water.

Yes

No PH or nothing of the sort?

I believe you actually. You remind me of someone I grew up with, a good friend who around 18 started lifting and by 19 was in that kind of shape

the weirdest part is he hopped on gear and it all kind of went to shit due to running way too much test with no understanding of its sides
