Nice hike. I wish we had the kind of weather where we could actually go outside. Go jets.

Looking darn good. Especially your back. Didn't realize your were packing that much muscle. Don't know if I've ever seen a pic of you.

Thanks for the encouragement, BTB.

I'll be honest though, my arms, neck and shoulders are all an inch SMALLER than my best and my waist is three inches above where I like to be.

I'll say it was the 6+ weeks of rest I took while intentionally eating extra. That was completely necessary, but this year, taking a few smaller planned breaks should allow me to take maybe only 4 weeks off this December. That will help me maintain my size and lower BF% much better.

Don't know if we ever talked about this but have you thought of competing?

You see something?

I've thought about strongman or Power lifting (although I realize I'm quite weak even for my weight class).

Bodybuilding competition I may have thought about long ago, but I would need to add some serious leg mass to be competitive. Even though I've always focused on balance and proportion, my legs (lower especially) are still lagging. Maybe if I hit 185-190 @6-7% BF I would consider pushing further to compete.

I think you underestimate the competition. Most naturals compete at 160 to 175 ripped. The upper tier are 180 to 185, and the elites 185 to 195. I think you would do better then you imagine. Natural is all about getting ripped.

Ftw, Mr. Britain and Scotland, Andrew Chappell is 5'8" 163-165.

Anyway...not trying to be a pain by pressuring you. Just think you could compete.

Thumbs up Bulldozer Prep Session - Legs

Bulldozer-Legs

Warm up:
BW Lunges x 20, Jumping Jacks x 20, BW Pull ups x 8, BW Chin ups x 5


Front Squat: 65x20
Back Squat: 135x20
Front Squat: 65x20

Single Leg RDL: BWx10 each leg
RDL: 135 x 12,10
Single Leg RDL: BWx10 each leg

DB Saxon Side Bend: 8 x 20


Comments:
-Due to everyone's schedule, we moved legs to Monday and Arms to Tuesday. This may be an issue when the Friday DLs get serious.

-We obviously started light, but no one in my group (3 guys total) has squatted in a while. However, the back squat felt awesome to me.

-I'm just going to add 10 lbs per week to the squat and 5 lbs per week to the RDL and see where we hit the target of 5 mini-sets. Adding 10lbs per week on the squat for 12 weeks would mean 255 x 20. That would be sweet!

-This took an hour including the warm up, but I had to explain everything this time.

-Even though it was too light, I really like the WO structure and can see the potential. This won't be easy for long but it should be enjoyable and productive.
