  • Blast to 220

    I thought I would start this thread as extra motivation for myself.

    I'm starting this blast at a lean 200lbs at 5'5". On my last blast I was shooting for 210-215 and I didnt make it. I finished at around 206 due to reasons beyond my control. But that's history.

    I've got my new workout put together and I'm trying again. I've learned over the last 8 months or so that I dont gain all that easily. My body DOES NOT want to be over 200lbs. It just doesnt.
    With Dante's help I have dragged myself up from a soft 180lbs to a relatively hard 200lbs. And I mean dragged, scratching and clawing my way up in weight. My body fighting it every step of the way.

    Too bad it doesnt have a choice.

    To some people I am what would be considered "big". I am the resident freak at my office. Jokes all day long. Then I come onto this board and Im surrounded by In-Human, Baby, Raul and DC himself and I feel like a Q-tip. But damn is it motivating trying to keep up with the big boys.

    Because I want to be a freak. Not "in shape", not "pretty big", not "that guy has decent sized arms". A freak. Grotesque. The kind of look that makes women either recoil or drool. Lust or disgust, there is no middle ground. I've always wanted that but it has eluded me due to poor workout techniques and diet. It's close now. I can feel it.

    I'm going to check back in two weeks with an update. I hope to make a big jump by that time. Then after that DC only lets me weigh myself once a month or he gets irritated. And lets face it, I dont want to make him....angry.

    It's a push to 220 or beyond. Burn the bridges, there's no retreat. It's on.:grumpy:

      Gollum, It is tough to come to reality that you want this for yourself and noone else.

      It is not so much keeping up with the Smith's or the Jones's it is just doing the best you can with what you got given to you.

      Never get down on yourself, that causes catabolism and we do not allow that here. So keep your head up, you are a freak and you know it.

      DC turns us all into freaks whether its 190 or 300, so do the best you can, no do more than you can and you will have the physique you always wanted.

      And if you fail, I will be over to visit your fridge, so there is some damn incentive right there, and stay off the god damn scale!.

      I want to tell you, it is very tough for me to ge to this 300 lb mark, I am old and it is very tough to push this weight up, like you said it tooth and nail to gain at this point, but it is going to happen, it doesn't have a choice.

      So good luck, and I want to hear you are at 225 in no time...

        http://forum.bodybuilding.com/showth...hreadid=256548


        Hopefully this will give me some motivation to STICK to my diet, and training

        ...perhaps you should also also start one somewhere, im sure people would be interested in an actual "Dante worked routine"

        Ill race you to 225ibs!!

        Freaks all the way

              Hey Rackitup...I know that! I'm the one who convinced you to try DC training in the first place you maniac!! You remember when I posted the link to this forum? How soon they forget...

              I posted already in your thread. You're making excellent jumps in poundages. I'll see you at 225. The race is ON! If you get there first save me a seat.

              In-Human, I hear what you're saying. Believe me, I am not jealous of anyone's success. I cheer everyone on. I just get motivated by trying to keep up people who have a 100lbs on me. I'm extremely positive about this whole experience. And I will stay off the goddamn scale if you stay out of my goddamn fridge. I can barely afford to feed myself.

              Raul, I'll never give up. You know what I''ll do if I dont make 220 on this blast? I'll cruise for two weeks and try again. Always one more try.

              Thanks to everyone for posting. This is very important to me. In the "real world" I dont have anyone who gives a crap about training. So its nice to come on here and be surrounded by lunatics who share the same goals. Freak'R'Us indeed.

                  Thanks Hompie

                  Yes, I eat one meal less per day (grumble, grumble) and I also cut out all junk food. Well...almost all

                  I also lay off the olive oil and creatine while cruising. My cruises usually last a little longer than two weeks, actually. Like 2 and a half.

                  When I stop taking creatine I can easily drop a few pounds in a few days. And of course the one less meal and no junk helps too. I continue to train although not at a high intensity level and I drag my lazy no good ass through the freakin cardio that I hate hate hate.

                      Your poundages will go up, don't you worry.

                      When I started on the program all my weights had to be reduced. Especially for legs. I wasnt going deep enough. Now I'm lifting more than I ever have before and with GOOD form. I can now reverse bench more than I used to flat bench. Dig that.

                      In-human gave you good advice in your journal. Check it out. And I'll be lurking over there more often.

                      And when you reach your goals, it ain't because of me. All I did was point you in this direction. It's because of YOU and your hard work and having an open mind that is willing to accept something different.

                      BTW, what the hell does "knackered" mean anyway? Does that mean tired?

                        Cockney slang for exhausted, pooped yeah tired, and on that note, its growth time (bed).

                        YEah checked it out, appreciate anyones input in my journal too. Just Iv just started Reverse Grip BP, can really feel the tri, amazing exercises. I admire you mind-set, very similer to mine----just wanna be big!! plenty of time to look ripped and pretty, but the RAW MASS prevails before all else.

                        Freak is the best compliment even if meant as an insult....ever!

                        Thanks for your kind words, I didnt mean to hijack your thread. Keep up with the motivation, keep on rocking :showoff:

                        (hopefully with olive oil in my diet and less carbs, getting 3500 odd calories should be easy)

                            Im speculating Gollum has gained 30-32lbs of muscle in 8 months with his gain and body recompositioning from a soft 180 to a harder 206lbs. Without a doubt he has been my most consistent trainee as far as workouts---I seriously cannot remember the last time Gollum has missed during a blasting (meaning he always betters what he did the time before) --as you know 200 lean lbs on a 6 foot guy is pretty muscular but 200lbs on a guy 5 foot 5 is really thick especially for someone who has been clean as a whistle to get that 200lb point. Everyone has that sticking point. I had it at 256-260lbs before I brought it up to 300, Inhuman is kind of sticking a little bit now but we are knocking heads together to get him up past it, and Gollum has his at this 205 or so mark.....but he will get past this mark my words....the man has too much determination and there is not too many trainees of mine that despise the logbook as much as this man
