Thanks buddy and YES, after seeing the results of the Orlando Europa, I like my chances even better going into the national level events. Hopefully that IFBB pro card will be mine before year's end!

Last weight training day before the show was on Weds...now I'm just doing cardio until day before pre-judging. Practicing posing throughout the day to make sure I am hitting the best shots and turns smoothly and efficiently. No, we don't pose like bodybuilders but we still need to showcase our best features, emphasize that v-taper and small waist and make it look like we are on the cover of a fitness magazine up on stage.

Sorry I'm late on logging my training sessions this week but everything has been crazy (in a good way) since competing Sunday.

I always like to ease back into things slowly the week after a show because at this time it is very easy to get injured from the drying out process and all the stress the body ahs been through diet wise etc the previous week. It's also a great time to see some ridiculous pumps and vascualrity because you are essentially in stage shape as long as you didn't go ape shit and devour everything in sight post show and swell up like a tick. Been there/done that and swollen cankles and bloated mess is not a good look for me. I'm also already mid-prep for the NPC RI so the tighter I can stay the easier for me down the stretch and for peak week.

Was in FL on vacation from 5/16-5/21....trained at LA Fitness in Venice, FL...excellent facility. I also cooked and prepped all my meals while down there with just one cheat meal dinner out with my Wife. I won't recap the training sessions from down there since my time is limited.

Last night I did barbell bench presses for the first time since late February. I was close to having a pec tear at the time to go along with my shoulder girdle issues so at that time I decided to train chest with cables, machines and light dumbbell work exclusively until I healed up. I didn't go heavy (comparatively to how I used to press) but everything felt great and I felt I had a lot more left in me. There's still this nagging fear though of pushing too much and risking re-injury. It would be catastrophic if I tore a pec right now this close to Team U and would flush all of this past year's hard work and sacrifice down the toilet...so I checked my ego and backed off when I felt I needed to.

MY LEGS!!!! AWWWW!!! I had not trained quads/hams for the past 2 weeks because pre-contest I typically don't train them during peak week to fully focus my efforts on keeping my cardio sessions at 110% Not always easy to do when legs are sore from weight training and couple that with low energy levels due to depletion, it only makes sense to me to not train them. SO, last night I trained quads an...d hams and went real light with the weight and kept reps HIGH. Both Quads and hams tried to cramp up several times during the session and DOMS are ridiculous today...tomorrow will be even worse...

Actually I did do it immediately after training legs hence why i went light on the leg work. I'm only a little over a week out from competing so i can't skip any cardio sessions. During the off-season I never do cardio on leg day.

Quality man... Really quality. I'm just wondering what kind of effort it took to get your body that way. How long did you train for to prepare? How many workouts did you complete per week.

My 2013-2014 Off Season officially began yesterday and I am going to be starting off slowly to gradually build things back up. I lost a good deal of strength over the last 2 preps for Team U and the North Americans, especially on pressing movements. Although at this point moving maximal weight from point A to point B is no longer a priority for me, I still want to be working with respectable weights to assure continued growth. My main goal and focus is to build the best physique, not win any powerlifting or strongman comps. With that being said...here's yesterday's session:

I haven’t trained legs in about a month due to contestprep etc. Even though I went extremelylight and easy, I am already feeling the DOMS set in big time! My bad knee is a little pissed off form thesquats too but who cares! Lower backpumps were insanely painful after wrapping up squats. I attribute this to the amount of water I amholding in my lower back area after my post-competition gluttony week. This should work itself out after a week orso.

Lower back pumps have become almost debilitating. I know it is due to all the post-contestrebound water weight I am holding back there so it is only a matter of timeuntil that water is flushed out and it will be ok again. Until then, just gotta suck it up. Continued with my light training and ofcourse the lower back pumps made it very difficult (and painful) to do most ofthe movements.

Thanks man but believe it or not, I am still getting back my strength that was lost during my competition season. However at this point my training main priority is squeezing/contracting and stretching the target muscles, not moving weight from point A to point B. My days of using crazy weights (for me at least) are over. Trying to build the best Physique body for the stage and get my pro card. Off season macros varies but averages 2800-3500 cals/100 fats/ 100-250 carbs/ 200-280 protein
