    Been logging in a different place for a long time but figured I'll do this one again. The goal has shifted and is, probably, different from most of the people on here. I started pushing towards a physique competition last year around this time, but then COVID-19 hit, and I also re-evaluated what I wanted to do. I had never felt better and performed better than when I was doing CrossFit, which I stopped almost 2-years ago. I re-started that in my current location, and I love it! Going to compete again, and as I was number one in the last place, I hope to be even better here where the trainers and the people around me are top-level athletes.
    Goal one: (That is almost finished). I was a bit chubby, so all things CrossFit was a bit heavy to perform. It was especially running (insert Kelkel mocking comment here) and all sorts of gymnastics movements. I started at 201lb on August 23 and clocked in at 180lb this morning. Beyond some extra test, I ate a keto diet (Because it works like magic for my body) but did not add any other stimulants. Shooting for another 3-5lb for safety and then eat at maintenance and add in carbs again. Running now is a vast difference, commented on by one of the coaches, "Wow, did not expect that one," he said!

    I'll start posting my workouts also as I know it will be very different from most other training posted here. I have focused zero on strength during the diet, obviously, but do not need much more to compete.

    Wednesday workout:

    Empty Barbell Weightlifting Warm Up
    3 Rounds
    Behind the Neck Snatch Press x5
    Overhead Squat x5
    Snatch Balance x5
    Snatch Grip High Pull x5
    Snatch Pull Under x5
    Muscle Snatch x5

    WOD 1
    21-15-9 reps of:
    Overhead Squat, 115 lbs
    Push Jerk, 115 lbs
    TIME: 6min 1sec

    WOD 2
    4 rounds, each round for time, of:
    8 Bar Facing Burpees
    12 Front Rack Lunges, 135 lbs
    Run, 200 m
    Resting 3 mins between each round.
    TIME: 9 mins 28 secs | (2 mins), (2 mins 8 secs), (2 mins 32 secs), and (2 mins 48 secs)

    Will probably forget to log back and forth but it's more to keep myself on track I am doing it anyways.

    Man, it took me a while to figure out what that piece of equipment is between the treadmill and the bike. I was like WTH is THAT? Then I thought about the much less expensive model I have and how you move it from place to place and was like AH HA!

    No spoilers, though!

    Some updated pictures. About 25lb lighter as of today and my performance have DRAMATICALLY improved. Switching food and training over to competition mode in no more than 2-3 weeks. Super excited as I truly feel like I got a chance to compete among the best

    Some updated pictures of my small ass. While I do not care about esthetic looks at the moment always fun to look more ripped.

    30-min on a C2 bike at 145 pulse.

    Worked legs after that as the elite weightlifting crew was there using the other areas.

    Stomach still looks ok when at 3500/day. Going to keep increasing this until I realize itís to much.

    No training since Monday but donated blood for the first time since we moved to this new temporary home of ours. Cool thing they do, you could get a gift (T-shirt, socks etc) or choose to donate some money to the cancer fund for kids and adults. Pretty easy choice right there but not seen that as an incentive before.

    Considering my baby face that would not surprise me one bit.

    Sitting here preparing everything for the new week. Got a bit inspired by a thread about dbol and anandrol and have some extra leftovers so trying 25/mg of DBol and Superdrol for a week or so to test the waters a bit. Considering the intensity of my current workout schedule it might to much pump but Iíll just stop it in such case.

    Starting to test my new workout schedule tomorrow. Working with a top guy for the next 18-months as Iíll be 50 by the and my goal is to qualify for the CrossFit games in masters 50+.

    Sure there will be a lot of modifications along the way.

    Sunday and first training done. Got some Olympic weightlifting tonight and that will finish my first day towards my new goal.

    This am I did 30-min on this and kept a steady HR of 145.


    Then a quick 12-round Tabata on this one. 20s sprint, 10s walk. As itís a manual treadmill it works great when pace has to change that quickly.

    Tonightís workout was pretty brutal.

    Warmup
    Various kettlebell movements for 10-minutes

    Workout
    AMRAP in 45-min
    800m run
    10 deadlifts at 315lb
    800 run
    50 sit-ups

    Made it 2.5 rounds just about.

    HR maxed out at 185. Pushed it to 194 a while back but dbol and superdrol combo is making the pump a bit to intense to manage effectively. Only testing that for 4-weeks though.
