Workouts For Friday May 23…

I had a good carb load over yesterday and today… I didn’t go crazy by eating junk, but I did eat a lot of oatmeal, rice, rice cakes, etc. to help fill out. I’m noticeably fuller and more vascular which is good. My bodyweight is also up a bit, I’m 206 lbs. today after my workout at the gym.

I trained at another gym today for variety. I didn’t bother keeping tabs on the exact exercises, weights, sets, and reps because the machines and equipment are a lot different then what I’m used to. So basically I just did a general upper body workout doing a few sets of each machine. I got an awesome pump doing this because I’m all “carbed up”.

This particular gym has been around for a while and some of the equipment they have in there is ancient… some of the machines must be at least 30 years old… I’m talking about the old chrome weight stack machines like you see in “Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Encyclopedia Of Bodybuilding” or in the old Weider workout books… I could almost pretend that I was back in the “Pumping Iron” days LOL

I practiced my posing in the locker room after my workout. And I filmed it using my digital camera on movie mode, granted the video quality is not great, but I can still see some improvements over last week.

I’ve posted the video clip here…

I’m really looking forward to the show now… just 2 weeks out and counting… even though I’ll be around the same bodyweight as I was for my last competition, I think my conditioning will be a bit harder. Mostly because I started my diet already lean, I never “bulked up” and got fat this time around, so my skin should be tighter.


  1. Are you going to carb up again this week, a little over one week before the show?

  2. No, I'm going to avoid all starchy carbs until Thursday before the show.
