Gonna try this show again!

More like going to follow through with this show this year lol My wife knows I've been wanting to get on stage so as soon as I mentioned maybe doing a show she bout pushed me into it! I decided to shoot for the Jay Cutler Wyoming Classic June 24th. Im currently just about 12 weeks out and I'm prepping myself so this could be fun!...or bad lol these pictures are from this past Monday. I've been keeping my protein around 300g a day, fats are around 90-100g a day, carbs are fairly low through out the week ~100-200g a day then 1 reefed day that I will typically go up to 500g carbs and drop fats very low(similar to skiploading but I've never loaded more than 1 day I seem to fill out easy). PS. Im 6'1 fyi

I’m also going to keep a journal here. Perhaps it will help keep me more accountable haha. Im really looking forward to learning more about my body and its response to everything, kind of just looking at this first show as getting my feet wet. The next show I do I will budget for a coach. Currently at work but I will post up what my meals are looking like shortly.

hovering right around 237-241 still but I feel I look harder. I started HIIT 3x a week fasted and LISS fasted on all other days minus sunday when I do nothing but eat and nap. Also changing up my training routine to a Chest/Back,Shoulders/Arms, Legs then repeat leaving sunday out as rest day. Ill be super-setting everything but legs pretty much. I like to do ab training the days I do my HIIT before I go do my sprints. Other than that this last re-feed went really well, got about 500g carbs in which was my goal so today I started pounding the water. I think from here on out I want to aim for 2gal/day except on re-feeds of course.

Glad you are keeping a log here, Justin!

You must have a massive metabolism to get that kind of caloric intake each day. My old ass would pork up on that these days.
I'm jealous.

When did you start your prep and how much have you progressed so far?

My wife might compete in that show if she can be ready in time (she should be). I might see you there.

Thanks Skip! Started technically 16 weeks out(month ago). My metabolism is getting better haha but to be honest that was the largest re-feed/load I've ever attempted, not a typical day that's my fault for the mis-labling, i'll post up a typical days meal. It just so happened my re-feed fell on the next day I planned to post a meal. I was shocked myself at how I stayed hungry all day and even more shocked at how I looked the next day! Typical days meals are as follows currently 12 weeks out I also add about 1/2 tsp pink sea salt to each meal if its not already full of sodium, 2gal water/day:
Upon waking pre fasted cardio20oz water, 1tbl spoon applcider vinegar, 1 tbl spoon lemon juice(I use the bottled shit lol)
7:30-2 cups liquid eggwhites, 1/2cup oatmeal, 1tbl spoon Natty PB, dash cinnamon
10:00-170g chicken or fish, 3/4cup green fibrous veggie, 1oz almonds
12:30-2.5cups baby spinach, 170g chicken, 5-6 green olives, a little goat cheese, rice vinegar and salt
2:45-170g chicken or fish, 3/4cup green fibrous veggie, 1oz almonds
5:00(preWO)-1 serv cream rice, 1cup liquid eggwhites, 1 tbl spoon PB, 1 scoop TN Whey Iso, cinnamon
5:30-train;water intra
7-7:15(postWO)-2 scoops TN Whey Iso in water
8-170g chicken or fish(sometimes ill do leaner steak), 3/4cup green fibrous veggie, 1oz almonds

alright so weight is coming off pretty damn fast now and all I've done was added in 2 more days fasted LISS cardio and 400mg Synthetine pre wo. Pics in the trunks are morning of my high carb/load day and picture in the shorts is two days later. safe to say I filled out pretty good! the following days I continued to drop weight. Today I woke up at 224lbs(empty). 10 weeks out on Saturday!

thanks Skip. I very pleased with how things are going and honestly I haven't "suffered" much yet and im down 20lbs in 7-8 weeks. Right now I'm just trying not to overkill on cardio and to hold off on making adjustments until necessary(when progress stops lol) I feel like I can do 2hrs of cardio a day right now but I've just kept it to a simple 40min fast walk fasted and then I have breakfast and take a 20min walk to work then I train with weights in the evening. I decided against insulin for now, my better judgement says where I haven't used it its bad timing to bring it in during a prep. I'll experiment maybe in the offseason with it. As of right now I don't even think I will use Clen. I'm using 50mcg of T3 a day where I'm running growth(I think that's some bro science, needing to run T3 with GH maybe not) but I am new to T3 and it definitely has made quite the difference. Doubt I will go higher than 50mcg/day though I enjoy staying disciplined in diet vs relying on fatburners/thyroid enhancers. I'll update with progress pics in a week or so. Weight is right around 226-230 currently.

Weight seems to have stalled (~228-230lbs)but I look leaner/harder. Im really not hurting too bad for energy yet but im thinking of dropping my carbs 50g on training days(my meal 1 carbs) and keeping the other ~57g pre workout only also raising my fats if I start to feel sluggish which im sure I will. Still keeping the load/reefed day in once every 5 days or so but I may go as far as doing what I'd call an "Intermittent Keto" phase where I get my body to keto on zero carbs stay there 3-4 days then do a modest reefed, repeat. Just an idea I'm toying with. I really want to bring some impressive conditioning.

400-440g from when I wake up till 2 hours pre bed on Saturday(second leg day) then sunday Im off from the gym. Maybe try for more? I only do 1-2 sugary meals that day(typically pre WO) then I go to white rice or white potatoes. *Off day I drop all carbs and go to higher fats and protein. Only carbs come from fibrous veggies.*

I am not sure if you can go higher or not. I don't know your specific situation. It does sound like you are progressing well so I would probably just stick to the plan. However, you may be able to load a lot more, just not sure.

made some adjustments starting this week. Ive been on roughly 100g carbs(not counting veggie fiber) on training days 50g first meal of the day then 50g preWO. I lowered fats just a tad and switched my carb meals to pre and post training. Im only hesitant because I finish training at 7:30-8pm and I try to be in bed by 10pm so ive never liked the idea of having a carb meal post training that close to bed. I'm actually going to keep my load day the same and see what happens. Im starting the short ester goods 5/1(according to the plan but things may change pending on progress) so that's going to play a big role as well where im currently just on 500mg Sustanon/wk. Weight is up a few lbs from this weekends load but even with the weight stall before the load I feel composition has really been improving. Ill post up progress shots next Monday.

You too! Just a quick update. Dropped about 4lbs since Sunday so im guessing the water from my last load has come off. Look a little flat but leaner. Also to be noted all I've done with diet was switched my carbs out of meal1 and put them post workout. Calories still the same but WOW has my appetite gone up! Hopefully we got the ole metabolism fired up!

You look good and seem to be making strong progress. But if you want to really "bring some impressive conditioning," you're likely going to need to push harder.

Then again, maybe I just take longer to come into shape.

Consider Scott Stevenson's current condition. He said he's doing Team Universe on July 4th...

Best wishes with your prep.

That was actually water from the load. Weighed last night(normally weigh fasted) and I was 230 (guessing 227-228 fasted) so im also thinking the fat burning has really kicked in.

Comparing me to Scott Stevenson is like comparing a local Silver Gloves Boxer to Mike Tyson lol this is my first show...I have upped cardio though and I started Tren/Mast/Prop yesterday. Still no fatburners aside from 6iu Somas eod and I kinda want to keep it that way. I tend to adjust my diet weekly. Also ill be skipping on "scheduled" loads from here on out. It will purely be based on when progress slows or stops completely. Thanks though man! Definitely an interesting ride!

Well weight is back down to 225 and getting leaner! The scale has slowed a bit but I can see changes happening pretty quick just doing 1 big cheat meal a week now vs an all day load. Only thing I've changed is I upped fasted and Post WO cardio. After my workouts 5 days a week I'm doing HIIT on the stepmill for 20min. 8 weeks out and getting pretty excited! Still no fatburners. (I hate clen..)
