Time for a change!
Started competing as a lightweight(<231lbs) strongman in November 2008, gathered quite a few trophies, been to nationals, but time to switch gears. Many more opportunities for me in MPD and natural BB.

I have followed the anabolic diet during competition season to stay close to 231, am continuing this approach with slight modifications- only 1 day of carbs and all clean food now.
Cardio is being done 4-5 days/week, generally 20 minutes of stairmaster now. Weight training is done pretty much instinctively.

I am 6'2" and turning 24 years old at the end of this month. I'm probably looking at 210 contest time, April 2013.
From 2008-2010 I trained literally ZERO chest. Got some work to do there.
That's about it...

The secret is that my body wasn't made to be a powerlifter or strongman lol. At 270 my waist was barely over 36". I trained and ate like a bodybuilder when I first started so I already know how my body best reacts for those purposes.
Here is a pic of me at 16 years old, 6 months after I started working out.

I will be following along here now to bro. Your a stork like me being well over 6' tall. I am 6'2" and only 200lbs soaking wet and carb loaded.....no joke. I have been powerlifting since the end of grad school in spring 2010 and prior to that I was bodybuilding since summer 2007. As of September 5th this year when I turned 28 I made the call to try out Physique and give that a go now. I am doing my first show Jan 19th in LA so will see how she shakes out!

Good to see other former powerlifters let alone one my age and height to follow along with.

Training still looks good bro!

I am playing with my split (in my head) to try and break out shoulders and arms from back and chest days. Right now it seems like tacking them on with back and chest leaves them less then optimal for full bore attention (which mine need).

I use a 3 day split now, legs, back/bis, chest/delt,tris. I have been with this for 8 weeks now. So far so good I would say. I just wonder if good could be great by someone taking arms out on their own. 2 a day training not possible for me now with work schedule and gym location. I got 1 shot to be there and then I am out for the day.

Not going to fret over it now but its just the part of our minds that say....what could I be doing better??

ushock
01-20-2013, 03:59 PM
The only way to know for sure if it will work is to try it! What I might do in your position is switch the days you train arms- back and triceps, chest/delts and biceps that way they get full strength. Or add in an arm workout before legs. Try something new for a few weeks, if it works, keep doing it!
