3 Weeks Out

Coming to the final stretch here. 3 weeks to go from today as I type this. Gary changed up my diet one more time yesterday. I can't say that it is brutal, by any means, but this is going to be a looooooooooooooooooooong 3 weeks.

Rob and I are training again at the Firm Fitness Center in Rehoboth Beach. It is a nice change of pace. The owner,Paul, is a serious triathlete himself and understands what real athletes need to do to train properly. It is nice to be able to feel like we don't have to hold back for fear of offending anyone. Not that we get obnoxious or anything, but real sport athletes need to be able to do what they need to do to excel.

Anyhoooo I am getting freaky ripped, very hard, and striated everywhere. 3 more weeks to carve it all in. You shall be able to grate cheese on my striations when we present the final product!

4 Weeks Out

I didn't realize it has been soooooooo very long since I posted anything here. I am a FaceBook addict, lol, so that's where my postings and pictures usually wind up.

However - here is my 2010 Nationals progress update:

I apologize to many for leading them to believe that I might be competing as a lightheavyweight.
Unless I cut off one of my arms or legs or emaciate myself into a shapeless stick, my plan has been to be a heavyweight all along. I only said that because there are a few people who have no business to be, but are always up in my business. Just threw in a little curve to confuse them.

I'm 4 weeks out, and hanging around 153 today. I don't do what most typical bodybuilders do in the last couple of weeks before a show, with carb depleting, dehydrating, recarbing, rehydrating, and diuretics, so I will probably only lose a couple more pounds total in the next few weeks. Heck, we were way too far ahead at one point and had to add food, mostly carbs, back into my diet. I am right where we want me to be at this point. I have striations coming in everywhere, and the glute striations are showing more every day! Enjoy these progress pictures taken yesterday at 4 weeks and 1 day out.
