    Hard training tonight, couldn't hold lots of weight on my back due to my chest so did what I could.


    Oly Squats

    65 x 10
    105 x 10
    145 x 5
    185 x 5 x 5
    145 x 10 x 3 - just to keep the other guys company and squats are awesome.

    Brodie Marshall 15years old and 75kg hit a 230kg power squat in wraps and a belt - strong

    Jake Marshall 20 years old 100kg nailed a 300kg squat in loose single ply briefs and wraps

    Lee Marshall tripled 300 with just a belt - cause he is a beast

    Trap Bar Beadlifts (in oly shoes)

    107 x 5
    187 x 5
    227 x 5
    267 x 5

    Wow, these seriously work the quads! Def gonna help improve my back dominant deadlift.

    Leg Press

    240 x 10
    320 x 10
    400 x 10
    480 x 10

    Leg Curl just a few ligth sets

    Few light sets of calves

    Standing rope crunches


    All my training was done betless as I can be arsed to wear a belt anymore while in the off season and I'm only gonna bother for max lifts in comp.

    For some reason I have got bigger after coming off gear - I attribute this to a sort of rest week after comp and coming off tren.

    Feeling strong (aside pressing)
    how come you bother with the leg press? i always thought it was for people too scared to squat

    I did do 9 sets of squats with more than 300lbs first.

    Leg press is a useful assistance for someone a bit more experienced - but it is certainly no replacement for squats.

    I do them in such a way to try to throw as much weight onto the quads as possible (the weakest part of my leg).

    As I am limited in what I can do due to my injury doing leg press would be not so good as say a clean but as I can't do that at the moment it is better than nothing.

      Diet will be lots and lots of food, something akin to this

      Meal 1 6 am- 200g oats, Protien & full fat milk

      Snack 1 - On way to work 7 am- McDonals Double Sausage and Egg McMuffin meal

      Meal 2 Same as meal 1 with added peanut butter and a couple of pices of fruit

      Meal 3 - 250g meat, 250g pasta/rice probably in curry/pasta sauce with onions/mushrooms etc thrown in

      Meal 4 - Same as 2

      Pre workout - Fruit, pre workout energy thing

      Post Workout - Lots of sugar, lots of whey

      Dinner - Similar to Meal 3

      Snack 2 - 4 rounds of cheese on toast




      Suppliments

      Gear - nothing for a bit, then onto Test, Deca and A-bombs

      Other - Pepties to increase appetite (very soon probably), Possibly Insulin

      "Legals" - The usualy, vits, protiens and what not.


      Current weight is 115kgs with abs which is just silly, playing rugby again has really stripped some fat so time for some bulk baby.

      And I probably wont update this day by day but will try to monitor once a week or so to post updates and possibly pics if I can be arsed to care.

      Why am I awake at this time - god damn HCG shot too late at night = Matt being awake!!!
      surely you're taking in far too many carbs there? and a hell of a lot of saturated fat and salt?

      oats in the morning, mc donalds breakfast will be high in carbohydrates. 250grams of pasta, twice in one day! seriously?! and 4 slices cheese on toast before bed, is just going straight to the waistline.

      admittedly you are 20 kg + bigger than me and more mesomorphic, but i know that if i tried to bulk on this diet i would just end up fat

      Are you a woman? I compete at a decent level, my strength levels are exponentially higher than yours - now calculate the newton output of said lifting and wonder why I was losing weight on 8k kcals

      Ok so trained well over x-mas, still suffering with my damn pec but its getting there, more physio soon, possible operation to re-attached and so on.

      I've been focusing on technique with front squats & oly squats - really sitting on my heels and being upright and totally raw - going very very well actually.

      I have also been doing a lot of flexibility work and doing more and more oly lifting, not there yet with the snatch but my c&j is much technically better - not been shifting big weights or anything just because I want to get these things right I have the strength already but the technique needs working not my ego.

      Does the maintenance of strength not rely on the amount of weight your lifting?

      Snatch is a bugger to get right, my pull is great (apparently) but above that its nasty. Cant keep my arms close to me so the bar comes out and iv gotta come to meet it which messes up the recovery. Its getting there though.

      Played a game last night with deadlifts

      starting at 220 we did doubles adding 10kg a set, just two of us doing it, change the weights then go, so pretty short rests.

      got from 220 upto 280 and it was bloody hard graft.

      We did this after split jerks, my legs are killing me today - good times!!!!

      Oly lifting tonight to loosen them off ha ha

      Don't know and don't know, they were using a 450kg tyre in WSM - I predict there will be some non reppers.

      An 800+ lb deadlift for reps is heavy ****, even if it is 9 inches higher
