Been training for 10 years. Started off very into Bodybuilding, Dorian Yates was a big influence. Got up to 225 with a “little help” and decided it wasn’t for me. Been training pretty consistently the entire time.
Currently trying to lean out as my job as a consultant doesn’t lend well to being “hyoooge!” My current goal is to be an athlete. I respect guys who carry serious mass, but at 31 years old, I think those days are behind me. Here are my stats:
Roughly 10%-11% BF
Squat 365(Yeah, I know)
Clean and Jerk 225
My training is a mix of pretty much everything.
Certain days i will head in and do the following
DL 10x3 335
Clean and jerk 10x3 155
Weighted chins 45lbs 5x5
One Arm DB press 100lbs 5x5
other days i will split upper and lower body.
I also do “Alactic sessions” which I got here on T-Nation.
I’ve been working in some Kettlebell training as well. Been using the programs Mahler setup for a week or so, big benefit.
PLEASE TAKE THE FOLLOWING WITH A GRAIN OF SALT I’ve also recently been trying a little “Crossfit” style trianing. Only doing it for the metabolic conditioning component. I’m not buying into that style of training as the end all be all.
I also have the backyard “compound” setup. I’ll flip tires, work the sledgehammer and the slosing pillar of pain.
Lastly, I’ve been trying to do some sprint work. I’ve gotten a few good programs from Rosstraining.com. This guy is an animal!!
As far as diet goes, mostly low carb is my route. I’m a big T Dawg 2.0 guy. I try to get in anywhere from 200 to 250 grams of protein a day. I supplement with the following
8-12 Flameout caps a day
2-3 Metabolic Drive shakes per day with Benefiber and maybe some Luecine
BCAAs pre, peri, and post workout
Surge w/ luecine and creatine postworkout.
I think that covers most of it. I appreciate any and all feedback. Thanks everyone.
