2003

For the first time in a long time I really enjoyed my summer. After so many years of being fat, it sure felt great to strip off my shirt, go outside and feel confidence rather than embarrassment. I’m also very pleased that I’ve been able to gain some lean mass without adding any body fat during my summer maintenance/bulking phase. I experimented with several different bulking ideas over the past few months and now, with the last day of August upon us, it’s almost time for me to drop the “maintenance” part of my program and start a true bulking phase. With my new gym equipment – which is going to allow me to go very heavy in complete safety – and the knowledge I’ve gained this past summer, I should be able to really pack on a lot of sick muscle over the next few months. 🙂

Psychologically speaking, one of the most difficult aspects of bulking is accepting the fact that I will gain some fat along with the muscle. After all my hard work over the past 8 months, that’s not an easy thing to do! I plan to continue to eat clean, but also I understand that a certain amount of fat gain is inevitable when bulking. Even though I’ll being looking a little “soft” in my pictures as I progress over the next few months, I do so with the knowledge that I when I start cutting again in January, I will have the best body of my life by late spring 2004.

So, the “official” start date of my bulking phase is September 6, 2003. I’ll be changing my workouts, my food intake and my supplement intake on that date. I plan to bulk for four months, and will start cutting on January 6, 2004. Of course I’ll update the relevant portions of my site to reflect these changes, and will keep you posted with daily updates. It’s time to get big…

…and it’s also time for my workout! Today I’m doing 200 crunches followed by 23 minutes of HIIT cardio on the stair climber. After that, I’ll be doing a few hours of yard work and I might wash the car if the sun is still out after I finish my yard work. I also need to do some house cleaning and hopefully I’ll have time for a DVD later tonight. Have a great day, see you tomorrow!
