The Classic's Road to being a big girl

Postby Rab on Thu Oct 14, 2010 12:41 pm

New chapter, new journal

Was almost committed to doing the UKBFF Stars of Tomorrow & London Classic show in 4 weeks time (14 Nov), but after sleeping on it a couple of nights and considering everything I have decided to hang up my trunks until the Scottish shows spring 2012

Reasoning for this decision is due to having other commitments I need to focus on. Fiona and I are getting married in 9 month and I need to save for this. it would have set me back another few hundred quid to do another show which I cant justify and is just plain selfish. Im also burned out and been on for a while now. I tried to train ect but im so tired and need a rest from dieting. I also have no holidays left and have work to consider. I need to be focused on my job too which is difficult at best during last stages of diet

Fiona has been a total rock through this and despite promising to make it up to her for dragging her through this, she was still there by my side willing to support me to do the Stars of Tomorrow and the Brits next October. I've asked enough of her and been selfish in pursuit of my goals. Its time to give her some of that love and support back now for a while and help her with her goals and also give her the wedding day she deserves

So that's the dream over for now.

Id like to thank BSD for the sponsorship. I helped so much as I do this on a budget. I hope that I can continue to get support from you guys and will be (after a brief rest and recovery period) knocking my pan in to come back bigger and better to hopefully win the UKBFF Scotland Classic Class and go to the British finals and break right into the top 6. Thanks aswell to everyone on here who has supported me and encouraged me and a special thanks to Simon, Rilla and Gym Pig for making the trip to support at the Brits

I know hee Haw about bbing but should you not avoid the Scottish qualifiers and do a last minute one like Kami. it would mean only one diet for the year instead of two.

Simon. Fiona was really fond of you mate and thought a lot of you. She wss dead chuffed you said she looked 21 :lol: :lol:

Cleaver. Thought about that angle aye but I feel the 20 week odd gap is ok. Let's you have a break from diet, rebound and come in bigger and tighter. Gives me another productive growth window and also let's me support th e scottish shows in front of my friends sand family which is what its half about to me.

I fancy getting some growth on and doing the nabba scottish and going up against the big boys in ckass 1. Be shredded and pleasing on the eye ( no bag over face jokes please) and see what that gets me.

If I can come back a half stone up on the right places then I'm gonna be pushing my clkassic linit and be a much more complete bodybuilder. I don't intend to be much bigger. The clalass is suited to me so no point in being above that weight class

Definately a good idea to recover and replenish.

Have a look at keeping good liver health on a permanent basis as well as I'm still convinced that if this is in place then everything else will follow - 2g Milk Thistle and 1g NAC ED would suffice.

I think this is a smart move

Fiona probably needs a rest and you need to give her attention now ( shes fit and you have a face like chewed up caramel so cant afford to blow this one :D )

A little growth in key areas will also take you so far and you have the team to pull this off !

Best of luck journal whore !

Thanks mate...cheeky cnunt :lol:

Training wise to make the changes i need im gonna have to change things a little.

Ive been training quads and hams split to bring up hams and also give deadlifts a day away from back. this has worked to bring up hams and now my legs are a strong point so qill draw hams and quads back together. Do squats, leg ext, SLDL and leg curls just. My legs respond well and this is enough i think to have them slowly improve. squats and SLDL being the base exercises with the other two being changed about.

Im gonna drop standard deadlifts and do the sldl and on back night Rack deadlifts. reason being my legs seem to respond more from deads than mack so gonna take out my stronger hams from it and put it all on back. lats have imporved recently with some tweaks i made so will continue down that road.

Delts need bringing up further. Again...what i was doing beetween the Scottish shows and the brits did bring them up so will continue with htis outline still. heavy pressing and side laterals. simple and effective. soem twekas and intensity stuff added. Neil Hill has some interesting side lateral work ideas

With lats Rab, throw in some static contraction work at the end of working sets to really get those buggers to pop out and add mass.

wilWill do mate. i think the changes i made between shows to bring them up did a reasonable chunjk in the short time i had...and thats one thing i was doing. using a little less weight and workign on squeezing them better with as you say the strong squeezing statics

Probably do a back routine like so

Rack Deads
Seated Cable Rows
Tbar Rows
Soem sor of slow squeezy static cabel work. single arm low cable rows (mtorbike rows) or something

but

i do want to do some sort of DC training on the rebound so 2 back workouts need devising.
maybe

1. rack deads and seated cable rows
2. tbars and single arm cable work

My back routine is along the lines of:

Heavy Hammerstrength Rows

Squeezy Pulldowns

Heavy RDL

Then something squeezy again

With back you need around 4-5 exercises to hit all the angles and do loads of squeezy stuff between the very heavy work.

Staic constractions, rest/pause etc., will all help, bit for sheer mass heavy rows and RDL's work every time.

I'd sack off T-Bars in favour of Yates Rows possibly.

Medium Grip Weighted Chins are heavily underated for Back growth overall and worth adding in.

To add. Felt so very tired and run down the last few days. realised that it was alot to do with the show but also probably to dowith the fact ie been uing test prop, but ly last shot was tuesday before the brits so had went appx 10dason thngut winny after the duration of course. srted this out last night and started my rebound few weeks. 1.5ml of sus250 and 1ml of prop. seems to have done the trick. good sleep last night and im feeling mucho refreshed and more life about me today

this is good, but also a bit worrying for coming off.

Stil taking 50mg winny per day, 25mcg of t3 and 1/2 a letro eod. keep he water rebound to a minimum as last time i stopped everything and blew up with water retention like the michelin man. it was awful! Ill keep this up and not bother stoping anything for my first blood test. be interesting to see what it says

I'd drop the T3's to save your adrenals and start eating lots of greens to bring natural energy levels back up.

2-4 weeks post comp is probably where you'd look your best for the combination of size and conditioning for non show. Should try and retain that all the way through if possible.

Think your right mate. after that the glycogen super compensation settles down and the faqt creeps in to a noticable degree

diet has been cleaned up as of today

loking liek this

100g swis muesli (no added sugar and pretty low fat bar the nuts) with a little semi skimmed
60g milk & whey protein

60g oats with 20g whey porridge made with water

200g chicken
300g potatoes

same again probably with a few biscuits and a cuppa

train

whey and glyco replenish and a bit of fuit

hearty meal - home made lean burgers, maybe a roll or two

.....

...

bit liek that...slowly making it "clean" again but you know...still enjoyable. when back to work mid week it will be the standard 3x chicken rice/potatoes and veg, protein and oats porridge etc.

In short, cleanish, high carb, high protein and enogh to have me growing
