Dreaded Leg Day

The one thing about weight training, is constantly placing yourself in the mindset to always push more than you’ve ever pushed before. There is always a fear of not being able to accomplish this goal, or that you haven’t truly gained much strength to reach that point. The latter is an unfortunate moment, because then it means you have to either start eating more, or change up your training routine so that you can receive as much benefits from your overall workout.

Intermittent Fasting

Now this concept might be a little too advance for any beginners coming to my website, but for anyone who’s been lifting for a couple of months and still looking for a structured meal plan or a protocol to follow, this may be of some important use to you. Intermittent fasting, is just what you are thinking. It’s a fast. Everyone knows, a fast is basically not eating anything during a period of time. All you can have is water, and that is it. The first time I came across this eating protocol, I was a little confused on how it worked. I saw people posting pictures of their transformations, of gaining lean body mass via using this. So, obviously I was intrigued. Leangains.com, is the website that has the information that pushes intermittent fasting as a eating protocol that absolutely, without a doubt, works. Obviously, results come only if you follow it properly. Not only that but he also molds it into the concept that I tend to use, for my own intermittent fasting. This type of fasting, tends to work very well for people who work a 9 to 5 or 8 to 4, shift. It’s generally not conducive to some people, because the eating window when it approaches, may be hindered by other activities that is required of you. But, if you generally have lunch at 12, and wake up around 5 to 7 in the morning, this is a perfect eating plan for you. Firstly, you[…]

Deadlift 140lbs for 5 reps

before i get to it, i just want to apologize for any grammatical or spelling errors that you may come across, if anyone is actually reading this. i am making this entry to keep track of my lifts, and rather do this here than on a piece of paper or book that i am going to possibly misplace. anyways, just started doing some serious leg workouts, along with deadlifts. so, i need to keep a track of what i am doing so that i can progress nicely, and keep lifing or increasing my lifts every workout session. so today, on my deadlift, i did 140 lbs. i am concluding this from two; 45s, and two; 25s plates. if my math is wrong, or if i am suppose to incorporate the bar, please let me know. i am a dense towards these kind of things because of me now starting. i was also asked to join a powerlifting crew, so i am seriously contemplating that. with school and everything, i don’t know if i’d have time to even compete, if i join it. so definitely have some thinking to do. anyways, so 140lbs for the deadlift, and i want to go up to 150lbs next weekend. i am 145-148 lbs right now, body weight wise. so i want to be deadlifting more than i weigh, obviously. so next week; 150. 2; 45s, 2; 25s and 2; 5s (if can find some, if not, two 10s and then that pushes me to[…]

Why I got into bodybuilding

The reason why I got into bodybuilding, can be seen as the generalized reason nearly everyone gets into bodybuilding; to gain size. When I first started off the last semester of my senior year in high school, in 2003, I was about 110 lbs. I gained 15 lbs before the school year ended, and very quickly actually. Too quickly but it’s only later on did I learn, that’s what they call newbie gains. Afterward, college came around and I stopped but I was 125 lbs and a little happy about my gains. Fast forward some months, I got back into the lifting and gained about 10 more lbs. Leaving me at 135 lbs for a while. Then as school came to an end, and time was given to me, I did what they call a dirty bulk, trying to gain as much as possible and hit about 145 lbs. It seems I was very good at gaining in 10 lb increments lol. Anyways, so school started back and I ended up losing some of my weight, as expected but didn’t continue lifting. Ate about the same as I did on the bulk, and obviously gained some but never weighed myself around that time. Fast forward to summer of last year; 2010, I wanted to lose some of the body fat that I gained from over the years, with the dirty bulk and eating without training. So, I included a routine of a 5 day split, with 2 days of cardio.[…]
