We're BACK!

Yo!


I have got to say you are looking JACKED, especially compared to our last blog. Even though the numbers on the scale may seem strange, there is no question you gained muscle and lost weight. Your first two months back are always strange and I'm sure now that you've cultivated the habit, you will be able to control your weight much better. Your arms and shoulders seriously look way bigger! 165 is sooooo attainable it's crazy.

My stats as of today (April 12th, 2016):
215 lbs, coming in at approximately 20% body fat.
Bench: 225 lbs x 6
Deadlift: 315 lbs x 6
Squat: 225 lbs x 6

Main goal is to keep lifts where they are currently and drop body fat to single digit % over the next 12 weeks. Totally shredded by July.

I would say the bulk was overall a success, I really enjoyed not worrying about what I was eating and just focusing on lifting as heavy as I could. Unfortunately I don't think this is the healthiest way to live, so I'll leave that for the winter bulk season.

Supplements:
Whey
Creatine
Pre-Workout

Cardio and Abs Routine

Calorie Tracker

I would love to hear more about what your supplement guy had to say regarding your routine!

Also if strength and gains are your main goal, then we can definitely find a more appropriate routine for your goals!

Either the: Fierce 5x5
Or the: AllPro Novice Routine

Anyway, once again I'm so proud and motivated that you stuck to it for this long with me!

Love you bro :)

WEEK 2! You made it! I am very excited to continue on this journey with you brother. Your stats are great!




The photo above was after about two months of dieting. I am definitely an easy gainer and a slow loser...

P.S. I haven't actually used ephedrine since the first week I purchased it. Made me very anxious and uncomfortable. For my cut I'll just be following Jim's shortcut to shred.

Updated big three:
Bench Press: 225lbs / 6
Squat: 315lbs / 6
Dead Lift: 365lbs / 6

I've been hitting it every morning at 7am with my gym partner Craig. Mornings were always tough, but having a partner is huge in keeping each other accountable.

We're doing a 5 day split:
Monday: Chest
Tuesday: Back
Wednesday: Quads/Hams
Thursday: Shoulders/Calves
Friday: Biceps/Triceps

This has been our split since spring. I've added about 40 lbs to my bench, 90 lbs to my squat and 65 lbs to my dead lift.

The summer shred is on, 20 minutes of cardio and abs after work, burning about 500 calories.

We're 10 weeks out from Halloween, so if you plan on looking like a Spartan, throw away the chocolate bars and jump on the elliptical.

I'm hitting whey, creatine, bcaa and stacking ephedrine and caffeine.
