2014 Arnold Pro Raw Challenge

2014 Arnold Pro Raw Challenge

Mar 4, 2014

I guess I’ll start this off with how the past few months leading up to this went. 99% of you don’t know this but in Dec my mother broke her hip. This was/is a devastating thing to happen to anyone. 3 days later my dog  Duke died. At this point I had no drive at all to move or eat let alone train for a big meet like the Arnold.  I spent hrs on end at...

2014 Arnold Raw Challenge Week 11 – Off the Beaten Path

Feb 19, 2014

Thanks to Mother Nature and the gym being closed for the weekend for an Oly Cert, this week became incredibly short.  Which I guess is good since I need to be looking more to my recovery than anything else at this point but it still tends to leave me kind of restless. Tuesday Before we get to Tuesday’s stuff……  On Monday I got an e-mail from...

Feb 13, 2014

This week did not get off to an auspicious start.  I knew it was going to be a little rocky.  The next couple weeks will be with my new promotion (congratulations and condolences gladly accepted…..), but I had no idea just how rocky it was going to get. Tuesday The plan was to be out of work by around 4:30 to actually get to the gym on time because I knew...

2014 Arnold Raw Challenge Weeks 6 thru 9 – In the Weeds but Still Training and Getting Caught up

Feb 5, 2014

It’s been a minute since I’ve managed to get a post out.  A really long minute.  I’ve actually been trying to get something written up for about the last 2 weeks but I just keep running out of time.  I am well and truly in the weeds in a way I haven’t been in a very long time.  So in the interest of getting caught up and not losing any...

Some More Arnold Training

So Training has been not exactly how I wanted it to go for the Arnold as of lately. Lots of stress on the body that is really screwing me up. The nerves in my arms and back are acting up because of it. I will do my best to perform but don’t know what I will be able to do come meet day if this keeps up. Pretty bummed out. SQUAT 1) 535×3 2)565×3...

Arnold Training week 1 and some inspirational words

Ok so I’ve been away for awhile. As of lately  I have been just working and doing what needed to be done. Now that things seem to be going a little smoother  with life in general, I can get back to trying to get stronger. I worked up to a x5 squat @9 on Saturday and cut it there. Just not feeling good yet. All the normal assistance work that I normally do...

Arnold Training cycle 1, week 2 and 3

So I had the the drive and motivation on the beginning of week 2 but my nutrition was off really bad and it showed in my lifts. No excuses. All my fault. SQUAT 525X2 555X2@10 BOOOOO!!! YOU SUCK! I hate crappy days. I shouldn’t let it bother me but it does and everyone around me knows it. I am pissed for the next week or until I can destroy a weight with...

9/14/13 SQUAT 495×3 535×3 560×3 * pressure was so high in my face that a 2 day old cut on my forehead started to bleed. Blood was dripping down my face.  KOOL! 9/16/13 BENCH 335X3 365X3 385X3 *This ties my best ever. I’m 10lbs ahead of schedule. I saw that my bench was going to start to fly up when my tri accessory work went up. Every time...
