Blackaggar's Quest to 300lbs!


#1

Yeah thats right, going to post workouts, what I eat and anything else thats worth putting in

Started week 3 of max OT I am very much likeing the arm workouts, my arms are starting to look a lot better? If that makes sense

Close grip flat bench
135x12
135x10
185x6
225x4
275x1
315x1
365x4

Overhead extension
50x12
50x10
65x6
75x3
85x1
110x8
110x8

Pushdowns
50x12
50x10
75x6
80x3
100x6
120x6

as you can see ive modified this a lot now ie more reps on pushdowns and i do the warm up on almost every exercise but i feel doing this is more joint friendly and probably size friendly

db curls
25x12
25x10
35x6
45x3
50x1
50x6
55x5
60x4

Incline curls
40x6
45x6 too light moar weight next week

Hammer curls
75x1
85x1
95x1
100x6 moar weight next week!!

Ive also found that as i guess what they would call and EASY GAINER i really do need a week for a muscle to recover 2x a week might get me stronger but i just stall in terms of size

What Ive eaten so far

9:00am
1/2 cup egg whites raw - drank this
3 eggs cooked in VCO
3 slices bacon cooked in VCO
3 chocolate chip pancakes with syrup
1 tall glass of milk

10:45am - pre workout
1 cup oatmeal
1 tbsp peanut butter
2 cups milk
2 scoops whey protein

1:15pm Post workout
2 scoops MASSIVE

3:05pm
3 scoops whey
2/3 cup nuts

when i get home im not sure what im going to have probably some more eggs and some toast and later tonight going to have another bowl of oatmeal with whey. I think whats been working best for me as terms of size is moderate-high protein, moderate to high carb and moderate fats. When my weight stalls Im going to add another cup of oatmeal.

Oh and after my weekend my weight this morning was at 240.5


#2

Great numbers dude. You gonna throw up some physique pics?

in for da updatez


#3

yeah sure tomorrow morning ill throw a new one up


#4

quest for 300 what? body weight!?!?!?


#5

Yes sir its been a dream for a while not because of the weight but just thinking about what numbers ill be able to pull at 300lbs is my main motivation

continuing what I ate today:

dinner
4 eggs cooked in VCO
4 slices toast with organic jam
1.5 cups orange juice

night time meal
2 cups milk
3 scoops whey


#6

Cool man. Yeah im around 238 right now and hoping to hit 260+ during this next bulk. We can both quest for 300lbs! haha. But for sure weight at 300lbs of muscle will be ridiculous. Its hard to even imagine! Close lifts to so should be a fun log to follow. Like bug said hit us up with some vids or update pics along the journey. best of luck bro.


#7

Definitely excited to see some pics, and will be following.

Good shit man.


#8


thanks man I dont know how to post more then one pic some im just gonna keep quoting and putting diff pics i took 3 today when i woke up lol


#9

Ah yeah 238 and i remember some of your lifts on BOI being awesome sounds good dude!

this is the pic i least want to show because thats where ALL of my fat is lol but here it is anyway


#10

And the tough guy pose lolol dont look at the things in my cabinets those are all collectables!


#11

Ill try and get a leg one today theres noone in the house this morning to take anything so thats why the pics are so far away haha


#12

Solid.

I dunno if you want critiques, but I'd say if I were you, definitely work on those arms, and back. Chest shoulders and traps seem pretty solid, but some more width, and arm development would really help you out from a physique standpoint. Wheels looking good too.


#13

No I deffinitely want critiques man and totally aggree with the arms Ive been trying to bring them up and theyre coming slowly but surely theyre a bit over 17 inches which compared to everything else is behind. Any suggestions on bringing them up would be awesome. I wasn't aware of the back width but thats really good to know, looking at them now I can see it needs work, my thickness has improved a lot and now Ill focus more on width, critiques will always be welcomed I want to be the best i can

#15

Goddamn, your a strong dude! You look very solid too, on your way to beastlyness for sure. I'm definitely in for this one


#16

Rear delt flys are something you might want to look into. MEadows also does this form where he does sets of 30+ and then drops down to do another 30+ reps of pendullums.

If you dont have bad wrists they say standing strict bb curl is the shitniz for your bicep peak.


#17

Unfortunately I do have bad wrists thats my achilles heel lol How about cable concntration curls? I was going to add 6x12 pump like sets at the end of back tomorrow like Kingbeef suggested in that one forum.

And yeah I have 2 bastardized versions of what meadows does that I made
for laterals i do the partials but i do heavy partials with say 120lbs for 15-20 reps
then no rest go to 60-60lb dbs and do another 15-20 reps then no rest go to 20-30lb dbs and do 8-12 reps, do this 4 times your toast and was doing this for rear delts last winter aswell resting on an incline bench and thats when my shoulders finally started to take off, meadows knows his shit thats for sure


#18

Thanks my man much appreciated!

what I ate the rest of the day -

dinner with my lovely girlfriend at kelseys:

lol yeah im obsessed with Meadow's workouts and utilize most of his stuff.
http://www.T-Nation.com/free_online_article/most_recent/building_a_biceps_peak
Heres an article about hitting the bicep head with techniques other than standing BB curl. Frankly my wrists dont give me much a problem in that aspect so i stick to BB curls and havnt tried any of these out but who knows they may be awesome ha.
