Default Road To Glory

Most of you who followed my MAX-OT log have gotten to know me personally, but for the newcomers, welcome. I'm going to start off with a variation of Layne Norton's Power/Hyper and stick with that until/if I stall. This is RJ Perkins' variation of it which I am currently running: R J Perkins Profile! R J Perkins Pictures, Videos & Workouts | Muscle & Strength

Started the routine two days ago and so far it has been great to me! This is most likely going to be a multiple part log, leading to my eventual goal of competing in the INBF. Once I compete (I am planning on competing by senior year of college, provided there will be no setbacks/injuries).

One major setback I'm going to have to deal with will be a corrective jaw surgery. Basically when I had braces in middle school (got them on about 12 years old), my orthodontist had me wear overnight headgear and removed 3-4 teeth in the upper area. This pushed my upper jaw back and also restricted lower jaw growth. Now as a result, my facial profile (side view) is extremely out of proportion and I have a receding lower jaw/upper jaw and is a huge self-esteem issue of mine. From what I have researched (about 3 years worth of information) there are several different operations and I haven't had the surgery yet because you are out of heavy lifting/sports for 6 months minimum and the diet is mostly liquids for the first few months. I'm going to get several consultations soon and most likely have the surgery either over winter/spring break or next summer.

Here are some progress pictures for the unaware:


Built up this base after an inconsistent run of Macdow's 5x5:



Lifted on and off for about a year (about 6 months of bb-oriented splits and 1 or 2 of a strength oriented split for school (BFS; Bigger Faster Stronger)...and worked my way up to this in January:
(Abs flexed):




Here are some more recent pics after 6 Months on MAX-OT with my first consistent diet:
(Relaxed/Bad Lighting):



As you can see, my shoulders/arms gained the most in mass, and a lot of other bodyparts lagged behind. I am currently 167.5 lbs roughly 11% and cutting to 9-10% BF then going on a clean bulk.

This is my overall physique goal within 8-10 years:
Jon Harris:



I plan on winning my WNBF Pro Card within 3-5 competitions.

Going to post my first two workouts on the new split now

Video/Documentary (Until Episodes Run Out):

And so begins the epic journey for overall mass + strength gains. First impression is this routine is basically awesome. Only negative thing about it is basically my chest was weak from doing a chest hypertrophy workout a few days prior and not getting enough sleep in over a 72 hour period. Other than that, I was pretty impressed with myself. Figured out my "5RM" which are always going to be subject to change from this point forward .

Going to start with 155 for bench, 305 for deads, 100 + bar on Smith press, and 225 for shrugs next week.

135 lbs (5 reps)
155 lbs (5 reps)

Video/Documentary (Until Episodes Run Out):

Great leg workout today. Did not have high expectations at all for this workout, most of my leg workouts are sub-par but I think I have found what is needed in order to gain size/strength in them. Still had slight DOMS from last weeks hypertrophy leg workout, but it wasn't too bad. Second day working at DQ wasn't bad at all. After I lifted I went to the bank to deposit some money/checks then bought a Wii
Chilled with the lady after and played some Wii, can't wait for tomorrow's workout gonna lift with Dan and possibly my buddy Khanh who is the asian kid I sometimes lift with/used to train.
Next week I am starting with 205 for squats, 225 for SLDL and 350 for calf presses.

Actually your last two workouts are very good and mimic FBR quite well.
