    Aw you make me want to start haha...

    Gym time lads. Going to hit shoulders and legs. It's going to be nuts. I can already tell.

    Smashed a pound of chicken and almost a pack of weetabix and some rice.

    Raring to go... enjoying my bulk already

    Best of luck, Not sure what type of training your doing but are you sure you can properly train delts and legs together and give them each enough intensity and overload to make them respond to their max

    That workout was fucking nuts! That isn't an understatement. Pump was sick. Weights were sick. Muscle destruction was sick. I don't know if it's proper hit but I'll post up my exact workout as soon as I'm home... I believe you were correct Marcus absolutely couldn't face legs I would have collapsed if i done squats. Shoulders and hamstrings it ended up.


    Nearly fell up the stairs and also when taking my shorts off.

    That was nuts. If I was doing it right. You have my allegiance Marcus. Time will tell if my muscles respond.

    DAY 5

    Okay so this will be a long one sorry guys.
    Major switch up from now on I will be bulking lean hopefully. Tried out a new style of training (hit hopefully)... definitely enjoying eating a little more today... would love some suggestions on where to go with my bulk whether they be training diet or supplement related as I have never bulked before

    Weight 180lbs

    DIET
    80g oats
    6 weetabix (Will exchange for oats from now on)
    800g chicken
    750g brown rice
    500ml skimmed milk
    4 eggs
    Small bar of chocolate (sorry)
    3000ish calories

    TRAINING
    Shoulder press
    -warm up
    -working set 32kg dumbbells (8reps) to failure drop to 26 (6 or 7 assisted reps) to failure
    -working set 30kg to failure drop to 26kg to failure

    Side lateral raise
    -16kg to failure drop to 12kg to failure x2
    -14kg to failure to 12kg to failure

    Front delt pulley
    23kg to failure drop 12kg to failure x3

    Shrug
    40kg each side to failure x2

    Seated hamstring curl
    Warm up
    -55kg to failure
    63kg to failure

    Prone hamstring curl
    43kg to failure to 30kg to 18kg x 2

    EXCELLENT workout I loved this... however would require a spotted for the dumbbell press as I couldn't lift the second set of dumbbells above my head alone.

    SUPPLEMENTS
    3000mg fish oil
    Zma
    Msm glucosamine
    Creatine
    Bcaa
    Nac
    Preworkout
    Digestive enzymes

    Please do advise with any comments or thoughts. Thanks guys.


    Hope all the other guys competing are doing excellent!

    Woke up with a strange feeling of aching muscles... feels different than before. Can still lift my arms but it feels like numb if that makes sense. It just feels torn down

    No time for training today. Might have to have a protein shake aswell. Need to cram loads of food into a tiny lunch break and possibly vomit

    So, you have a choice.
    1) Don't do anything and wait for pain to go away, on its own.
    2) Do an activity to burn cals, build muscle, or provide relief to the area (and to your conscience).

    Me too.
    After having said it, I had to do it. (I was procrastinating because I was sore and tired too).
    ERG 5000M, time 22:22.1. Split time at finish: 1:57. Fastest split time than the whole twenty minutes leading up to it.
    And, this was the first time I made it past 12 minutes.
    Your turn!

    Aw man you're showing me up. I've had a hard day at work:/ dropping the folks off somewhere then I'll come back and rattle off some press ups I suppose....

    Quick question on the bulk... What about cardio? I really want to do some but should i?

    Good work! I already see a difference from your before pics!!
    Yeah, I think aerobic work is very important. Other than all of the benefits it provides on its own, it also allows you to eat a little more calories. That means you can get more nutrients. To me they're not the same. Calories are important but Macro-Micro and trace nutrients are what we are trying to get. It's kind of like the brutality of a strong-arm robbery versus a grift or a cat burglary. The last two take finesse and they make it more like an art. Aerobics allows this.

    Thanks alot! I never thought I'd be saying it but I really do want to do cardio.... I could definitely eat a little more.... as far a limiting fat gain should I forget about cardio doing that?

    I will probably start going a run a couple of times per week

    Same deal again today.... long ass shift with a shitty lunch break so scoffed loads of rice and chicken and protein powder before i left the house this morning... you should see my belly. I look absolutely pregnant. Definitely need to look into probiotics. Digestive enzymes don't seem to be doing much. Got oats rice and chicken to last me through the day.

    Traps and hamstrings are a little sore still today... going to hit quads at the gym tomorrow before work.

    My legs are really aching badly now. Quads aren't too bad but i feel like I've been shot in my hamstrings. Would using a foam roller tonight help alleviate some of the pain?

    https://youtu.be/Mb8krWbv1CI fast forward to 1:10.
    It would seem you need a strobe light and loud music for the leg rolling technique to work properly.

    Cheers man. Your post was the one that swung me into the bulk you and the other massively changed the direction I was going in lol. I actually don't mind pounding down the chicken and rice... I've not yet went to the nuts however.

    I always get a massive rounded top part of my stomach from the carbs.. though as soon as I fix that it will be all good
