Forum upgrade complete; Leg day.

The forum upgrade was completed yesterday and it went extremely well. There are only a few outstanding (mostly minor) issues I need to resolve. There are a lot of excellent new features in the latest version of vBulletin, some of which I’ve listed here. If you are having any problems, please read through that thread before posting, as your problem may already have a solution. One of the most exciting new features of vB 3.5x… [Read more]

Forum upgrade notice.

I’ve been dreading it, but it’s time to upgrade the forums to the 3.5x family. It’s going to be a pretty big job, as I have to manually upgrade the custom skins and the hacks I’ve added. I expect the downtime to be several hours. I’ll try to get things back up as quickly as possible, and then I’ll work on the cosmetic stuff while the forums are “live” (keep in mind that things may… [Read more]

First bulking workout; New pictures; My strength training program in detail.

I’m still full from all the food I ate yesterday. It was tough getting it all down, and even tougher keeping it down after last night’s awesome back & traps workout! I know I sounded a bit like a giddy schoolgirl on a sugar rush last night when I posted to my forum journal, but between the endorphin blast, all the excess calories and the satisfaction of having an amazing workout to kick off my… [Read more]

The last three years: A retrospective.

As everyone who even occasionally visits this site already knows, today is the first day of my bulk and the end of my SGX cutting cycle. As I begin this next phase of my lifelong fitness journey, I thought it would be interesting to take a trip down memory lane and revisit some of the highs and lows I’ve experienced over the past three years…   January 6, 2003: This is where it all began….

Last day of cut; Thanks SwoleCat!

This is it – the final day of my SGX cutting cycle! Tomorrow begins my SUP2 bulk, and I’m looking forward to a productive season of big lifting, big meals and big gains. I want to take a moment to thank Chris “SwoleCat” Janusz for working with me over the past few months – it’s been a real pleasure! The small $200.00 investment for his SGX program was well worth it. Based on my own… [Read more]

Yet another change to my splits; Couple new pictures.

Of course I’m still tweaking my splits and my meals for my upcoming bulk. LOL. What can I say? I like to tinker! So, I worked out a 5-day split with SwoleCat last night, but now I’ve decided that I want to give my delts their own day (along with some trap work in the form of shrugs). Here’s the latest (and hopefully last) split, which I’ve submitted to Chris for approval. Monday: Cardio Tuesday:… [Read more]

More on my bulking plans: Splits, SUP2.

I received my The Road To The Arnold DVD from AtLarge Nutrition, so look for my review this weekend or early next week! You can learn how to get your own copy by clicking the below banner.

I’m feeling… [Read more]

New DVD from AtLarge; Last night’s workout.

AtLarge Nutrition has a very cool new DVD for sale: The Road To The Arnold. The Road To The Arnold chronicles Ryan “Bench Monster” Kennelly’s training and life leading up to the 2005 Arnold Classic. I’m not a powerlifter, but after checking out the preview video I think I’m going enjoy having this DVD in my collection. I’m extremely motivated by people who push themselves beyond all limits, and this DVD looks like a trove… [Read more]

Back to the weights; More on my upcoming bulk.

Today I resume weight training! It feels like I’ve taken a month off, not just a week. I can’t wait to lift tonight – it’s all I’ve been thinking about since the weekend. Even though my bulk doesn’t start until next Tuesday, I’m going to be switching the weight training portion of my program to SUP2 this week. I want to get a feel for the weight training portion of the program before I officially… [Read more]
