Training/Diet Update

Taken a break from blogging because of the amount of work prep I’ve had to do recently. Training has been quite lack-lustre recently, with none of the often rumoured-mythical post contest strength rebound experienced . I’m a lot more sore after training the next day compared to when I was dieting, and injury niggles in…

Thai Diet & Training Routine.

My current daily Thai Holiday routine. 6am – 4 coffees. 7am – Pepto Pro + Leucine shake. 8am – Train + Pepto Pro + Leucine shake 12pm – Destroy Japanese All You Can Eat Buffet. Usually four rounds about 700grams of meat all up and various side dishes.     1:30pm – Icecream Sundae (or…

Post Contest Reflections

(Gahhh! I spent 30 minutes or so typing up this post last night only to find that WordPress didn’t save the final copy. Fuckity-fuck!) Anyway – Post Contest Reflections – Take 2.

Being of the same height, I therefore look to bodybuilders like Jeff who have successfully walked the path of the natural competitor. If you haven’t seen Jeff…

Bulking With Intermittent Fasting

Some people have asked me if I.F can be used when trying to gain muscle. They find it hard to believe that eating only once/twice a day doesn’t make you go ”all catabolic ‘n shit” and find it hard to conceive of being able to consume enough calories within a small eating time frame to…

Post Contest Binging

Post Contest Binging – Try this for an experiment – Take a bunch of bodybuilders who have been starving themselves for weeks/months, remove the pressure valve, expose them to food and watch what happens. In my own case, because I have an upcoming photo shoot this week and was planning another one next week, I…
