Let it begin - First competition Log

Recommended Posts

Hey guys!

Have been meaning to get this log under way so here we go.  I have started my competition preperation for my first contest in May,  this will be a 18 week preperation and i plan to log, trainings, nutrition, feelings, experiences, photo comparisons and AAS compounds used throughout the prep.

A bit about me...

I have been a sportsman all my life, always trained and just love physical activity in general.  My chosen sport was league, i had the opportunity to move to AUS and play in the younger NRL competition, awesome experience but at the time i was young, dumb & full of cum and my head wasnt screwed on.  So i came home and continued to train both in the gym and with league right up until 3 years ago, this is when i took a interest in bodybuilding.  I was intrigued by the different aspects of bodybuilding and the personal challenge it presented with the lifestyle changes required.  In the 3 years i trained about 2.5 years naturally, i knew i had a decent base from my resistance training so it was building from there.  I went through phases of learning how to diet down and gain weight, this in itself was a huge learning curb and how my body works.  The last 8 months i made the choice to use AAS, there is no complicated reason for it, i have ambitions and goals to compete and do well in addition im interested in how far i can take my physique. I view AAS as tools in bodybuilding, im a huge believer that a user must have some basic knowledge of bodybuilding principals at the very least, know the pros and cons of using hormones, and know how to train their fucking arse off.  Everyday I'm learning, thats why i love doing this.

Current Stats

Age: 25 years old

Height: 187cm , 6ft 2"

18 week out weight: 136kgs

 

The Rundown...

I have a coach that is assisting me this prep, basically i started my prep last week (Thursday 16th Jan 2014).In terms of traning i will be lifting 5 days a week, looks like this.

1 - Legs (quad focus)

2-  Chest, Calves

3-  Rest

4-  Back, Biceps

5-  Legs (Hamstring focus)

6-  Delts, triceps

7-  Rest 

i have programmed my training so i have split up my legs (quads and hams) as hamstrings is a weakness i would like to work on.  Coach has me doing 45min low intensity cardio and fasted first thing in the morning.  Cardio is everyday at this point (FML). *wacko*

Diet wise, 20 weeks out im consuming 3400 calories a day.  the focus is depleting so the coach says.  Macro wise, roughly 400P / 240 C / 100 F. Foods include the usual bodybuilding foods - Oats, Eggs , Chicken , Fish , Veges , Nuts, Whey.

Supplements (OTC) - Multi vitamin, Fish oil , HMB , Whey protein

Contest Cycle

now i had initially planned a rigorous cycle begining 20 weeks out.  however after talking with a few experienced BBers i decided against it and come to the conclusion it was probably too much for a first time competition.

i revised things and still have to double chech with coach but this is the plan.

18 weeks out

test prop - 500

Boldenone - 600

clenbuterol - 40mcg ED

 

16 weeks out

test prop - 500

Boldenone - 700

Masteron - 350

clenbuterol - 60mcg ED

 

12 weeks out

TNE - 200 (back and leg days)

Test prop - 210

tren ace - 525

masteron 350

clenbuterol 60mcg ED

 

WEEK 11 - added anavar 50mg ED

WEEK 10 - added t3 50mcg ED

 

8 weeks out

test prop - 250

tren ace - 700

Masteron - 525

proviron - 50mg ED

clenbuterol 60mcg ED

 

6 weeks out

test prop - 250

tren ace - 700

masteron - 525

proviron - 50mg ED

winstrol - 50mg ED

clenbuterol 60mcg ED

 

4 weeks out

test prop - 250

tren ace - 700

masteron - 525

proviron - 50mg ED

winstrol - 50mg ED

clenbuterol 60mcg ED

 

2 weeks out

tren ace - 700

masteron - 525

proviron - 50mg ED

winstrol - 50mg ED

anadrol- 50mg ED

clenbuterol- 60mcg ED

 

1 week out

few days before the show will drop injectables and will run oral through the to show day.  possibility of adding halotestin in last week at 30mg ED (210 per week) will discuss with coach.

Everything will be discussed with coach and may change along the way.  The peak of my AAS reaches just over 2 grams which is still a lots for me, if anything things will be tapered down and not up this is maximum dosages.  i will run ancillaries accordingly.  Letro, Aromosin etc will be used to take some water out within the last weeks,  i will update thread as i go.  this is not set in stone just yet, is subject to change.

 

Comparison Photos

i will document weekly, i will do my best to take photos in same lighting and place etc.

 

Thats all i can think of for now, look forward to it all and open to any advice, critique, opinions , help or whatever - it all helps :)

I've read a few articles suggesting High Intensity cardio is more benifical than Low Intensity cardio, I know Ben Pakulski does sled sprints etc which is much more fun than standing on the treadmill of 40 minutes! 

Edit: Found some links http://www.biolayne.com/contest-prep/best-form-of-cardio-for-bodybuilding/

not cycling clen just running straight through, wont go above 80mcgs.  i know studies suggest the downgrade of receptors etc but ive been talking to a few experienced bodybuilders who have run right throughout their contest prep, ive also run it for 12 weeks continuosly in the past and results were good.

HMB - ive never tried, it was reccomended by my coach to aid recovery and supress cortisol - thats if i could afford it.  so im gonna give it a go for a couple of weeks, if its shit il drop it.  So far recovery wise i feel sligtly better but too early to tell.

How i dose HMB.

1g prior morning cardio

1.5g pre workout

1.5g post workout

1g before bed
