Monday, October 14, 2019 - Welcome, guest user!

Talking a bit about my bulking progress so far, along with a couple of predictions.

Yesterday I posted a stats comparison to mark the halfway point of my bulk, and tomorrow I’ll be taking the corresponding monthly photos. Back when I took progress photos every day the process became very routine, almost mundane. Now that I take “official” progress photos just once per month, I have to admit that I tend to get a little anxious about them. I think it’s because daily changes are small, but changes over a… [Read more]

End of the month stats (a couple days early).

I always take my measurements on Monday morning, so unless something changes in the next 2 days, I have my end-of-month stats for October. I’m very pleased with the progress I’ve made this month: Except for waist, hips, weight and body fat, every single measurement is now the biggest I’ve ever been in my life. That’s what I’m looking for! With over 2 months left in my bulk, I’m very excited to see what’s ahead…. [Read more]

“The cut-off time is 9:00 PM!!, you inconsiderate twit!”

I had a rotten night’s sleep last night. Nothing puts me in a worse mood than being disturbed in the middle of the night, especially for no good reason. That happened several times last night. One of Lisa’s friends got into a fight with her boyfriend or husband (I don’t know, or care, which) and called the house several times in the middle of the night. We’re talking 3:30 in the morning. Are you kidding… [Read more]

Lisa complements my arms, I inadvertently insult her; 19.25″ arms (pumped).

Guys, if your wife or girlfriend ever grabs your arm and says “Wow! Your arm is almost as big as my thigh!”, be very careful with your reply. This happened to me last night, and I messed up. “Thanks! I’ve really been working hard in the gym.” < – Good answer! “What? My arms are nowhere near as big as your thighs!” < – Bad answer! I chose the latter, and I’m still living it… [Read more]

My grocery lists.

I was recently asked what kinds of foods I’m eating now. While I can’t discuss my specific meals (due to the SUP2 confidentiality agreement), I can talk about the various different foods I eat. I buy most of my meat and seafood at Costco in bulk every 4-6 weeks, and I buy fresh food at the regular grocery store one per week. Here’s the list of most of the food items I buy from Costco… [Read more]

Posterior chain & Glute activation exercises.

Yesterday I was talking to 1FastGTX about my deadlifts and lower back, and the subject of posterior chain work came up. I’ve never done any exercises specifically for the posterior chain, but I’m going to start. Can you believe I’ve never done Good Mornings or Hyperextensions?! GTX has been weight training for over 15 years, and his depth of knowledge is very impressive. I also discussed this same subject with chicanerous, and he pointed me… [Read more]

Ego trumps rational thought – hurt my back doing deads.

Last week I violated one of my own “rules” by mentioning that I’d reached a strength-related goal for deadlifts, and how much I lifted. That was a bad idea, and it came back to bite me last night. Let me explain… First, as you may already know, I’m a very competitive person by nature. I’m competitive with myself, and with others. I can’t help it. It’s part of how I’m wired, and something that will… [Read more]

New chest workout; Opticen on sale; Titan review; November “100 Challenge”.

For last night’s workout (pecs), I changed from an all-dumbbell workout to an all-barbell workout (except for my finishing exercise, which is always cable crossover work). This is a pretty basic chest workout, but it gets results. I realize that some feel the decline bench press is not needed, but I really do feel that it has helped me, so I do it. Here’s the chest workout I did last night, and what I will… [Read more]

My Titan review is up!

I’ve been strength training using the Titan T1 home gym for the past 17 months, and I honestly believe that it has played a huge role in the progress I’ve made during that time. I’ve made no secret of that fact that I love my Titan T1 strength training equipment, but until today I’ve never posted a formal review of the Titan. The Titan is capable of so much, so it was rather difficult to… [Read more]

A day of rest; Adding fat while bulking.

Today is a cardio-only day, and I really need the rest. I’m nearly two months into my bulk, and five brutal workouts per week at maximum intensity over a four month period is a definite challenge to sustain (but I’m up for it!) I’m up to a little over 11% body fat now. While 11% body fat doesn’t seem that high to some, it is for me. I felt fat for the first time since… [Read more]
