OTS BBB

EDIT.
Mission Statement:
To have the biggest, strongest body possible. To grow beyond all expectations. To smile when people say ’ don’t get any bigger’ and know I’m on my way.

Why?
No one in my family have done this. There are olympic level athletes, gold medal winners at endurance events. There are national level wrestlers and boxers. No man in my family has, to my knowledge, tested his abilities to grow, challenged his body day after day under heavy loads of iron, forcing it to grow bigger to overcome.

It’s always been in me, the desire to be strong and huge, but it has hidden behind the desire to be liked, the desire to ‘look good’ and be lean.

No more.

The beast has awoken, and he is reaching for metal and meat.

OTS Big Beyond Belief.
First time around, got into day 1 of the second ramp, then got sick.trained at home, too little quipment, too little food.

Second time around, got the Swine Flu after the first two weeks. Lost 7 kg in two days.

Third time: Done weeks 1-3, no problems, now on week 2 of supergrowth, and I’m up 6 kg from 5 weeks ago, with strength increasing on all lifts.I started at 90 kgs, and now I’m anywhere between 96 and 100 kg.I’ve been getting 4000+ calories each day and having a carb-up meal on Wednesday and Sunday, all protein and fat on other days.

So, here goes:
Workout 5 of Training Phase 1:

Slight pain in the back of the left delotid, or discomfort rather. Did some 50 and 80 kg BB rows with wide grip between sets, which seemed to help.

Workout 5,week 3 of Training Phase 1
Been experimenting with increasing carb intake from a 6 days off/1 to one 300+ g meal sunday and one on wednesday. Energy is more steady during workouts with this, but my midsection is increasing very noticeably.

I’ll stick with it though, as I’ll no doubt need the carbs on Ramp 2.

Standing Calf Raises
105x7,7,7

Also did some wide grip seated pulls since the left shoulder still feels a bit funny. Seems to pull things together a bit at the end.

Trainingphase 1, Workout 6
Last day of sweet 3 minute rest periods.
