    My Show Prep Journal 2005 - with details

    I have decided to start a Contest Prep log.
    Starting weight 207lbs at 15%-BF current weight around 195lbs at 11%-BF, need to get down to 176lbs at 3-4%-BF for middleweights.
    This will be updated every week, please place all question within this thread and not PMs so everyone can ready the answers. Ok let’s get started.
    The before pics were taken 12 weeks out of my first show, my shows will be April 30th, May 14th and June 18th. As of right now the supplements being used are:
    300mg of Test Enenth E4D
    200mg of EQ E4D
    10mg of Anavar ED
    ECA stack 2 times a day Monday through Friday
    Clen at 120mcg Saturday and Sunday
    T-3 100mcg 5 days ON and 5 days OFF
    .75mg of Arimidex ED
    5iu of Humolog Tuesday & Friday mornings before breakfast, I find that enough to keep my muscle bellies round & full and maintain anabolism.

    Starting at 8 weeks out which will be next week, the supplements will be changing to:
    75mg of Test Prop ED
    75mg of Masterone ED
    100mg of EQ ED

    T-3 100mcg 5 days ON and 5 days OFF
    .75mg of Arimidex ED
    ***’s Oratropin 40mcg per day for 8 weeks
    ***’s GHRP-6 80mcg ED -2 injections of 40mcg each morning and 12 hours later or as close as i can get to spacing it out even
    ***’s .5mg of Letro ED
    5iu of Humolog Tuesday & Friday mornings before breakfast

    Cardio is done in the morning on empty stomach 30-45 minutes 5 days a week, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday & Sunday. Sometimes on weekend I do double cardio and go out hiking.
    My workouts are quick but intense usually getting me out of the gym in 30-40 minutes. All reps are done in 1 second positive and 4 second negative.

    Weekends off, just doing cardio.

    And here the most important part of it all DIET. All meals are in Bio-Zone ratios of 41% carbs, 31% protein and 27% fat except last meal & post workout meal. Later on this will be adjusted and fat percentage will be droped, The carbs are kept rather high as I work on my feet all day and need them for energy.

    8 weeks out update

    8WEEKS OUT – update
    OK I am 8 weeks out of my first show, this week I am making few changes & I will change my gear to:
    75mg of Test Prop ED
    75mg of Masterone ED
    100mg of EQ ED
    ECA stack 2 times a day Monday through Friday
    ***’s Clen /Keto at 80mcg Saturday and Sunday
    T-3 100mcg 5 days ON and 5 days OFF

    ***’s Oratropin 40mcg Morning for 8 weeks
    ***’s GHRP-6 80mcg ED (40mcg in the morning before breakfast & 40mcg before what I call dinner)

    I started the Oratropin-1 & GHRP-6 on Monday so far this is what I feel; my blood sugar drops about 1 hour post the morning Oratropin & GHRP, I feel tiered and hungry…my pumps are already beyond great, my vascularity has increased, my muscle bellies are always full and I do not look flat at all…and I lowered my carbs this week, so that is quite amazing…I have slept extremely well last night, which has not been the case before taking GHRP-6…sp far I am impressed I am reacting to it just the way I did to Injectible IGF-1r so I am looking forward to the upcoming weeks…I am attaching 3 progress pictures taken at 8 weeks out…next picture update will be at 4 weeks out, after 1 month of Oratropin-1 & GHRP-6 that should be interesting to see.

    45 gm of oatmeal

    15ml of jam
    30 gm of oatmeal
    8 gm of whey protein
    5 ml of Sunflower Oil
    Protein-30gm Carbs-25gm Fat-7.5gm

    After Training:

    Looking great Mike,

    Got 1 Q: Why are you taking T3 5 days on, 5 days OFF ? what's the benefit of doing that, and how long are you doing that for ? This is the first time i heard someone taking T3 like that... do you temper down at all ?
    I guess i had several Q's , not just one ..lol

    The T-3 method i am using was formulated by someone on this board, if you search around you will find the posts...i can;t remember who and i wish i did so i could give them credit...that person used 7-on 5-off schedule it fits better for me at 5-on 5-off...the idea is not to mess up your own Thyroid and keep it functioning at all times and yet still have the benifit of T-3 fat burning...i feel i loose around 1lb each 5 days while on and around 1/2lb in the 5 days off...it seems to work well for me...i will taper down once i stop, however i will proly continue at 12.5mcg for about 1-2 moths after my shows and cycle to remain somewhat lean and not become a big pig

    Hey mike im also your fan as far as getting ready for contests. You ALWAYS impress with your bodyfat levels and cuts. When your back is cut, its amazing. YOu had a pic where you were very cut and tan i have it on my other pc very impressive.
    Why are you taking clen only on saturdays, and why are you taking eca throughout the week? I would choose between the two if i were you, they both downregulate beta receptors, so if you go off clen to give them a chance to refresh, but take eca throughout the week, youre going in circles.
    Check out my other thread, started by cardiodan in this very forum. See if you can help man, thanks a lot!
    Good luck, illbe following this thread. Im going on spring break (snowboarding) then starting competitino diet.
    Ill follow nonetheless (ill try)

    Yo Mike... i'm curious as to the role of the sunflower oil you've included in most of your meals.

    Noting that there's a carbohydrate component in said meals... the addition of a fat source hasn't proven to be a problem?

    Not a critique...rather, curiosity

    I do not respond well to Tren i get boobies from it's progesterone related properties so it's masterone in it's place and i like masterone better right now, plus there is no liver toxicity with masterone...

    As for oil is in there for my monounsaturated fatty acids, good fats and to slow down the digestion of the carbs, i work phisically and need stead release of the energy...i have changed my diet since then and will update it early coming week...XXL

    Looks like you have everything laid out nice. You can tell you've done this before so i have faith in everything you do. stay strong

    btw, what is your fiber intake like? I see you are consuming various mixed veggies but i didn't see any brocholli in the diet. Do you do fiber supplementation? thanks

    Hey Mike I am impressed with all of your knowledge! I am concerned with my diet and supplementation. I would like your help if you had the time. My first show is July 31 and I would like to do well. I am 37, 5'9" and 225 with about 18% bf, give or take %. I have sixteen weeks and I started cleaning up my diet. I liked your diet, should I follow it. I am not taking var or clen or many of the other supps your on. I just need a helpfull hand in dieting and supplementation. I will do whatever you say to a T. You read my other thread so you know what I am taking at the moment. Please help. Thanks

    Hello Mike,
    It has been a long times since i have been able to contribute much on this board. I can see you have more then extened yourself to many here for some time.

    The information that you are providing the members on this board is priceless.
    Meaning pratical real life experences can't be replaced with any other method of learning. I think its great your willingness to share with everyone. I try to do the same thing for guys over at ab and get very little feed back. Maybe just not many over there competing.

    You and I will be starting at the same point I'm 5'6" and 207# at about 11%.
    I'm 43 years old and have competed as a middle weight 20 plus times. Yet I read your post and see how you are doing things and enjoy a different approach to reaching the same goal. Fresh ideas positive ideas are fun to read in our sport. My shows will be in the Fall. However with my desk job I will diet closer to 18 to 20 weeks to get back to 176.

    Thank you for spending the time you do keeping this log up todate and letting us share in your journey.
    I will you all the best come show time.

    OK here is another update, i manipulated my carbs a bit and dropped them as i increased my fat calories...this will be last adjustment, it seems to be working pretty good acording to my wife and few other people i have look at me every week (they have been in the game for a long time so i trust their coments) Other then that Oral IGF-1r has been stopped as unfortunatly all i could get was 1 kit...the results were good, and i would deffinitly do it again...GHRP-6 is still being used it's been about 5 weeks out it and another 2-3 to go, it is deffinitly doing something, i sleep a lot better and that is usually a big problem for me, i am tighter and fuller then usual, my vascularity is very good...my skin is thin, and i am gettin gleaner...overall i am very happy with the results from GHRP-6...training is going good...i am getting sick of dieting, i have allready done 13-1/2 weeks 3-1/2 more to my first show, 2 more after that to the next and then 5 more weeks to the last one...this is getting old in a hurry, but this are likely my last shows so i have to keep on pushing...i wil post pics this weekend as i forgot to take then this week, so they will be 3 weeks out pics...well here is the diet...

    Hey Mike,
    Can you give me some idea as to how many eggs = 250ml?
    I'm guessing you are buying liquid egg white.
    Also you are using 75 gm of oats is this = to 1 1/2 cups dry?

    What was your weight at when you hit 8 weeks out?
    What was your weight at for this last post? 4 wks out?

    Thanks, I'm watching your progress closly.

    250ml of egg whites is around 9-10 egg whites
    75gm of oatmeal = 1 cup of dry oats
    i have not really been weighing myself, i more go by the way i look and my waist measurment, as long as i loose atleast 1/4" of my waist i know i am doing good...i think at 4 weeks out i am around 183-185lbs, at 8 weeks out i was in the 190lbs range...my waist is currently 31-1/2" at 4 weeks out i usually compete at 30-1/2" to 31" for waist measurment and that's dry, so i am right on track i believe...hope that helps...i should have some 3 weeks out pics this weekend...XXL

    Mike,
    I know you told me you don't watch the scale that much. I still want to ask where your weight is? I'm guessing you plan on being on stage in 3 weeks as a small lt. heavy? We both know the light heavies are a hard class to compete in. One thing I have learned about shows is often there are a few guys that gun only for that show only. You and I compete in many shows and focus on one to peek at. I consider the middle and the Lt. heavy to be the best two classes in any show. You have to place 1st or 2nd to qualify. Remember being qualified last for two years. Have you not competed in a national qualifier in the last 22 months?
    You pics look good. The first is showing that you are starting to harden up. We both know you get harder as you go and the longer some supplements have to work.
    I hate to see you try to crash down to middle in 3 weeks knowing that you have five weeks later for the big dance. Yet, you must take 1st or 2nd. To be able to make it to the big dance. Tell me this do you have any other shows like 5 weeks from now? Thisa we will call a just in case show.

    I say stay the coarse you are coming in perfect if you ask me.
    Please step on the scale tomorrow morning and see where you are at.
    I'm guessing first thing in the morning you are looking very tight. Yes,
    keep on keeping on my friend.
    Good Luck,
    kdtl61

    Mike, As a competitor myself I must say you are right on track with your diet... these last 3 weeks should have your abs incredibly chisled, you definitely have lots of muscle mass and real good vascularity! Symetry is bang on as well... Good luck bud.

    Light heavies...LOL...i wish i was that big...i am going for Middles...i am kicking in around 180-183lbs right now, so just a few more to go...my shows are as follows...
    April 30
    May 14
    June 18
    I did not pay my membership dues last year and all of my qualifications have expired...remember i am in Canada not USA...also top 3 qualify for the next level of competition...so the first show is Level 1 and must have me qualified for the May 14th show...which i am dialing in for and hope to be 100$ for that one...the April 30th show is the most competitive level 1 show we have around here, always lots of good quality competitors come to do this how, so i can not be a slacker and must dial in atleast 90-95% to ceom out in top 3...as for the June 18th show...i am planning to eat for 3-4 days after May 14th show and the get back on the diet to loose what i gain in those 3-4 days...the june show is Provincial (State) championships, which will be my last show for a while...hopefully it will qualify me for the Nationals down the road...i hope this explains my overall plan...

    ...other then that thank you guys from your kind words and positive re-enforcement...three weeks to go to the first showdown...peace...XXL

    Mike,
    Thanks for explaining. I didn't know of your location. I guess I have not been around enough to know enough about you.
    Yes, I understand us middle weight never want to hit the stage at 178 or something and fall into the lt heavy. So, you need to be just about in your best shape for this first show.
    Keep up the prep Mike you seem to be on target. You know how much you can dry out. I have no idea as to what you lose in the final days. I lose about a pound. I only water deplete and use dandelion root to dry out. I have yet to try anything stronger.
    Keep us in the loop.
    Thanks,
    kdtl61

    your doing a great job of holding on to your muscle gains and only stripping off fat and water. at 3 weeks out you look much healthier and fuller than alot of bbers is see. keep your focus and good luck.
