Very long time, no see! Sorry I’ve been quiet right here on this weblog. Life has loads of issues taking place proper now. I’m busier than I used to be throughout my competitors season final summer season and fall.
Enchancment Season Replace
Bodily, I’m doing nice. I’m again to a wholesome physique weight. Really gained greater than I meant. The plan was 15 kilos. However I didn’t really feel “regular” once more till I used to be up by 25. After which I gained one other 5. My scale weight is fluctuating round 155 kilos now. I’m working to keep up it there.
This scale weight, for this enchancment season, feels drastically completely different than it did at this level after my 2015 season.
Higher physique lifts within the gymnasium have been productive. Eight weeks in the past I examined my bench press. Eight weeks in the past I used to be nonetheless recovering from a protracted contest prep, so I didn’t anticipate a lot, however the calculated 1RM was nonetheless about what it’s all the time been – round 125.
By “all the time” I imply precisely that. I keep in mind a time when it jumped as much as 128 and I used to be impressed by what number of YEARS it took to go up Three lbs.
Examined it this week once more. After eight weeks, my calculated 1RM was 146. Up 20 lbs in 2 months????
Yup. One thing is completely different.
I’m not tremendous thrilled with further physique fats, however that’s how my physique works. Once I’m anabolic, I develop. I develop the whole lot – not simply muscle. All tissues wanted to recuperate. Joints really feel good, too.
There’s that social strain although, proper? I’m not immune. It doesn’t matter what anybody thinks, my actuality is that I’m a bodybuilder, not a health mannequin. And it appears like I’m again underneath building in an enormous manner!!! Yay!!
However can we simply pause for a second and replicate on that bench. A 20-pound improve in bench press in 2 months?? Who does that? Hahahaha!

Instances have modified. Expertise has superior. I can now go into non-public apply. The plan is to retire subsequent summer season and start working with college students privately on-line.
