You would justify going to the gym if Trump was in there bloviating in it.

I mean, I’d probably drive to a different gym at that point, but yeah... overall :notwrong:

Been hitting that "Bank Holiday Workout" Will linked up about once or twice a week and then doing some other at home/at the park lifts with pull up bar, dumb bells, and bands. Overall :notbad: I seem to actually be maintaining some muscle based on looks despite being down 10ish pounds from cycling. I have gotten occasional knee pain recently from running :doe: , which I suspect is due to not doing squats/dead lifts :disappoint:

:iono: once it gets cold here I may consider starting up at a gym again.

I’ve got another week or so left of being off gear. Managed to maintain my weight right about 250lbs, down from a peak of almost 255lbs right before I got off. I was expecting to drop way more, so I’m pretty :fuckyeah: After I get back on, I’ll basically have all of November and then December plus a few months at the beginning of the year before I start prepping for a show. Next years schedule should be announced soon, and I’m hoping to find something local in late June or early July. That would have prep starting the beginning of March. In the four or so months between now and then once I’m back on gear I’m hoping to push my weight up to 260-265lbs. Hopefully wind up around 215-225 when I’m on stage.

YUGE. That is nuts, I can't imagine being 265, you will be almost 100 pounds more than me at that point :lolol: :impressive:

I actually feel pretty great here at 175-180.

It’s pretty crazy man. I definitely never thought I’d be this big when I started. After the show next year I want to get back up to 250lbs but stay under 10% body fat. From there I’ll probably just maintain that look/size.

Back pic was post-back workout ~2 weeks ago, and the second one is post-chest workout from the beginning of the month.

Brethren, shredding season is upon us.

I weighed in at 256lbs last week for my all-time high weight. Coach sent me my new plan to start cutting weight and re-sensitize my body to carbs. We pulled about 1200cals out of my daily plan, and I stopped eating so many damn cheat meals.. only doing one a week now. This morning I weighed in at 249.6. Quick little 6.5lb drop in a week. Almost all water weight for sure.

Finally remembered to take some measurements this morning too to compare to the start of last year.
SAWCE wrote: Sat Jan 04, 2020 4:29 pm Took my measurements this morning.

Broceps are the biggest and most symmetrical they’ve been, both clocking in at just about 17.25”
Forearms 13.5 and 14”
Thighs 26 and 26.75”
Calves 17 and 17.25”
Shoulders were 53” around (this was my one unflexed measurement)
Chest/lats 49.5”
Then to check body fat as I go back to bulking my stomach was 36.25” and waist was 35.25”
Hips were 41.75” so we’ll see if I can keep growing :datass:
Neck at 17”. I’ve dabbled in neck training before, but it’s largely untrained, so it should be able to grow relatively quickly.

Smaller measurement for each body part is the left side.
Forearms are clocking in exactly the same, which is :disappoint: I need to actually emphasize training them this year.
Biceps grew ~1” and both are clocking in at 18” now.
Thighs both grew ~1.5” and are 28” (right side) and 27.75” (left side)
Calves up about 3/4” to 17.75” each.
2.5” of fat on my stomach :lol: up to 38.75” right now with my waist sitting at 36.5”.
Hip measurement up 2” to 43.5”. :datass:

I’ll have michelle measure my shoulders and chest/back when she gets home.

Not exactly where I wanted to be, but considering gyms were closed for several months and I was having to workout around a weird injury in my quad, I’m generally happy with it.

Current look at 249.6:

Woof, I’m out of practice on my posing. Need to start practicing by myself and then as the show gets closer I’ll work with someone to help tweak it to maximize my figure. Also pale AF right now. Going to start tanning soon.


Image

This time before my last show I was about 214lbs.. sitting at 251lbs as of this morning. If that actually translates to 35-37lbs heavier on stage in the same or better lean-ness I will be super :fuckyeah: Would put me in the low 220s and less than 10lbs from my weight cap. Should make me pretty fucking competitive for an overall title win.

Damn bro. I’ve known you had gotten up to the 250s but seeing that pose, you are enormous.

Really :impressive: work. Chicken shakes for the win :lolol: And all the other hard effort.

Prep begins... last time starting prep I was 219lbs, this time I’m 242lbs. Decent gains in 2 years, but was hoping to be a little bigger and a little leaner flog into this one than I am. Will be interesting seeing where my weight ends up on stage.. last time I dropped to 185lbs, so should be roughly 210lbs this time.

Sparing your virgin eyes from having to see my hang piece outlined in my boxers.

Next year for sure :evilplan: I got up to 257 at my heaviest this time, and was coming up from 185.. hoping to not go below 210 for this show, so 275lbs should be easily attainable, and hopefully be there with much less fluff than I had at my prior 257.

It would be :neat: to see a progress pic timeline if you ever have time to waste... like starting at skinny :sawce: then as you lifted, then like start of each show prep, bulkiest of each show, post cut/day of show all chronologically.

Good chest thickness. Also massively improved arms but those are obvi.
