My Journey to that Physique Trophy
« on: September 16, 2015, 01:53:04 PM »
Introduction:

Welcome to my official thread on my progression to my ultimate physique, hoping it gets me placed well and receiving a trophy in my first ever event/step on stage.
Full natural, no test, no juice, just some Whey, BCAA's , and kick ass pre workout.
Iv'e come a long way from a fat lineman to a skinny anorexic ant to finally adding good muscle mass and maintaining a lower BF%.
I am currently in the midst of my clean bulk and would like to share my progress with you!



Current weight: 154 lbs as of 9/16. GOAL is to hit around 165 lbs while still keeping my 6 pack.
Another HUGE goal is improving my "V" on my back, have been making good progress, but still need work! Be prepared for alot of rows and lat pulldowns :P
Hitting chest and triceps today, will return with my reps and weight acquired, hope to impress some of yall. :)
Thinking starting this journal will make me even more excited about this Quest as well as keep me more active on IS. Cheers

Welcome to the journal section. You'll definitely get some good insight in here and even some criticisms ( constuctive or otherwise ). Learn what you can, when you can. Most of all just keep pressing on and increasing weights or reps as you can.

Best of luck.

what did you do instead?

You know the more muscle you have the better your body burns fat? You know where your biggest muscles are right? (Hint: below the waist)

no shit?

genuinely speaking you really just piqued my interest in developing my legs....

I mean I do hit leg day but never as intense or as consistent as all my other days, I guess it was because I always thought fuck it on stage im wearing swim trunks they don't care...

but im very interested in that statement right there; also dead lifts are my favorite (more for the back part for me) but I am keen to show you guys some leg day results and hope to grow :)
