  • What's An Offseason? Road to the Stage 2013

    Thought a new journal was in order to move forward and progress. I want to compete again next May/June. I have a few goals I would like to achieve.

    -Stay Injury Free
    -Do a powerlifting meet
    -Hit a 405 squat
    -455 Dead
    -Stay around 190, tops.


    I hit my macros during the day yesterday, then went out to dinner and ate freely. Had escargot (my first time ever, it was good), glass of Malbec, salad, Chicken breast with a light coating, stuffed with spinach, parmesean and something else, and tiramisu for desert...I was stuffed.

    Todays Macros are 60/250/250.

    Felt good to get in the gym today. I was pretty vascular

    Flat Bench
    225x6
    205x6,6,6

    DB Row
    115x6,6,6,6

    Close Grip Pulldown
    150x6,6,6

    Standing Military Press
    115x6,6,6,6

    Overhead DB Ext
    100x6,6,6

    BB Curl
    75x6,6,6

    Felt good, but still missing some strength. It will come back though.

    Cardio
    Ran for 30 min, not too quick, 2.25 miles I think.

    Found a video from my show....I need to practice posing more, that way I don't get so tired up there, nerves, etc...Also need to get my legs more conditioned, among other weak points....
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eww5fzgbINY

    176.4 today. I was 179.8 the day after my show.

    Squats
    225x6,6,6,6 -------First time squating in months. Felt ok, just tight. Got better toward the end.

    Leg Press
    450x6
    540x6
    630x6

    RDL
    225x6,6,6,6

    Seated Calf Raise
    90x12,12,12

    Hanging Leg Raise
    3x12

    *Overall, a decent workout. Legs were a little tight. However, once I got into it, I felt better. Made sure to get nice and deep on squats. Hopefully those start to feel better...no rush though on the weight.

        Good video...thanks for sharing that link. Your color looked real good, breck. Posing practice sucks, but it definitely pays off. For those who havent been on stage, posing itself can take alot out of you.

        You still playing hockey now too? My little guy has a tryout for one of the select travel teams in the area. Really love watching those little guys play.

              Thanks Slide...I was beat up there, and didn't show myself as I would have liked. Still better than some though. We were all sweating!

              Yes, I am. I am in A league this year. Some former pros in our division. Much tougher than years past, and doubt I'll be getting 6 goals a game anymore..lol. Good luck to your son. Always cool watching the little ones play.

              Thanks Trucelt! From what I hear, they are more fun than bb'ing. You should do it...but only if you are 100% healthy. and that venue sounds amazing.

                      Thanks Belskie. Looking forward to achieveing them!

                      That is a decent shot. I really need to get shredded head to toe though. Hopefully not getting 50lbs over stage weight will allow that...lol.

                      Weight: 179...was 181 yesterday after some pizza, oreo balls and cake..it was good, but I am keeping it in check.

                      Gonna go for a run outside today in this thick humidity and 97 degree weather...then finish tiling my bathroom floor.

                      I started yesterday, only have a few more cuts today. My wife wasn't with me when I picked up the tile. I thought it was the right one. So she gets home and I'm in the shower and here, "wtf! this isn't the tile we ordered!"...oops! I guess I should have looked closer. Apparently the color was a little different. Nothing I can do now. Not gonna tear it all up, and it is my fault for taking it and not looking closer. I think it looks nice...lol

                      Then a hockey game at 4 against a team that beat us 12-4...but we only had 6 players and they had a full bench. I was beat.

                      Anyone hear heard of the "Average White Band?" I worked security last night for their concert on our riverfront...i've never heard of them, but they were not what I was expecting...lol. Kinda boring.

                          I just looked up that band...sounds like a bitchin' time. Not what I would have expected either just by the name. Popular back in the 70s...and I have never heard of them.

                          Good luck w/ the game..hopefully you have better participation.

                            Thanks man. Best I have looked, but I have a lot of room for improvement.

                            It wasn't my kind of music. But it was easy money. $112 cash, for 3 hrs of work...if standing around is work.

                            We had no extra skaters today, but neither did the other team. So it was 5 on 5...we won. I had 1 goal. We have a few amazing players on our team. 1 kid is 17, and the best player I have ever been on the ice with. Played some top JR level hockey and was picked up by a minor league team. I felt way outa place ..ha. It was a good workout though.
