    Default The Hunger For Success: LayzieBone's Offseason

    A round up of Contest Prep from last year:

    PreJudging:

    This was an amazing experience because I learned a lot about my body, lets get to the crazy story before I actually got on stage.

    Started the day with 2 meals of 4oz Filet and 10oz Sweet Potato with 3 TBSP of Almond Butter, i slowly started to fill out, and i was drinking more water than last prep, i had about 1/2-3/4 gallon all the way up until the stage and felt very good the entire time. Getting to the venue I got a touch up (3rd coat of Liquid Sun Rays) and my coloring was the best it has ever looked hands down. So i cannot complain about my coloring. The show moved slower than expected because the masters went first (35,40,50,60,70) Shelby Starnes made an appearance and competed and should take the 35's, John Meadows was RIPPED To shreds and should take the 40's but it will be close.

    Last year I was very light on my food during the show i had a few rice cakes last year very scared of being spilled, this year Jason said be aggressive and that i did. From arriving on the scene at the venue. After the 2 Steak/SP + AB meals. I ended up going through 12 Rice Cakes with peanut Butter, I had 3 cupcakes before going on stage (mini gourmet cupcakes) and i was as vascular and full as I have ever been. I even put honey on the rice cakes to get some extra carbs in me because carbs suit me very well. I had a buddy there (MattyH) off the forums look at me every hour to see how i was doing. and it was clear i was coming in my best and slowly filling out. I never realized that i was selling myself short but wow it took a lot to fill me out because i was flat in the morning no question. I may have had too little the day before but i woke up at 154 this morning and was 152 the day before (friday morning).

    Then the crazy thing happened. A guy in the 70's passed out on stage under the lights and the show was delayed 40 minutes. So after I got all pumped up, got my glaze on and hit those cupcakes right before the stage We had to wait for 40 minutes. Literally killing my glaze, kllling my pump, but it happens and life goes on.

    Getting on stage. There was little movement, one guy moved the entire time we were up there for the mandatories. I hit my poses and hit them very well, but the judges did not lie. Palumbo had two guys placed 1 and 2 near the center and here are the pictures with me being on the far right.

    All the judges had said to me the following:
    - Hands down best color on stage
    - Overall best leg size and symmetry with conditioning.

    Knowing that I made those improvements and improved my coloring from last year was a major win, not to mention I came in 10 pounds heavier this year and looked leaner than i did last go around. I dont know where I am going to place, but a lot of people told me 3 and possibly 4th. Regardless I have made major improvements but its sad I really wanted to do better or hope to do better but lets see what happens. I have made improvements so i cannot hang my head, but i followed Jason's Plan to a T and had a little extra because i was backstage from 9 a.m. till 11:30 and had 12 rice cakes + PB + Honey + 3 cupcakes before going on stage (mini bite size ones) and got into my best shape, posed my best, and looked my best. Cannot complain.

    Night Show:

    This went by way too fast. Arrived at the Venue at 5 p.m. because that is when the show started (which started off with Men's Physique) Between Pre-Judge and the night show I had a Steak/Potato meal at a local resturant and continued to snack on Rice Cakes + Almond Butter and I added a squirt of honey when hungry again had about 8 before I got on stage at 6:15 to perform my routine. The physique was done and over with in 30 minutes and all the routines/trophies. It was MOVING very fast. The second I got backstage they were flying through the routines and I had to rush through a pump up in 20 minutes and get ready to get glazed before getting in line and waiting to go on stage. While back stage I had the opportunity to run into John Meadows who ended up taking 2nd behind Shelby Starnes at the show (who made a special appearance) and ended up bringing his best package to date. I continued to guage myself in the mirror as I am a hard critique but i kept getting good remarks backstage about how i continued to fill out and kept looking better and better as the day has gone on. This was a stage shot took with a guy who i chilled with all day named Chris Bohonyi



    This time there was no hold up's got up there and performed my routine (my buddy MattyH took the video from the crowd)

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1TdopwJpx3g

    And some more pictures taken with my brother and mother.





    I ended up taking 5/5 in my class and my thoughts were as follows:
    "Bodybuilding is a very subjective Sport, regardless of your placing you just have to take the negatives and find positives. I did not place where I wanted to and came in at the bottom and took 5th in my class. Life happens and it will go on. I came in this year 10 pounds heavier, i came in leaner, I came in stronger, and looked the best I have ever been. My color was 100x better than last year, I was fuller, and i brought the best package i could possibly brought to the stage. I cannot hang my head I will just take what happened and use it as fuel to the future. This collegiate national stage has not seen the last of me. Get ready because I may be back next year to show how much I can improve this offseason to chisel my way up the ladder."

    The New Plan

    Legs
    Chest/Shoulders
    Back + Hamstring
    Arms + Chest


    After talking to john Meadows backstage and having him look me over he pointed out hamstrings from the back and overall chest thickness need to improve, and we talked about Mountain Dog Training for a bit. While he was getting ready for his pro-card and fell short he spent some time helping me out and setting this up out of his kindness. I am going to roll with this and start with lower volume Mountain-Dog Training for the start of my offseason and add as needed with an extra set. First and foremost I am going to ease into the intensity techniques to understand the program and read up on his site to understand what I am getting myself into

    Nutrition

    Carbs - 245/215 (Workout/Non)

    New log, new goals - nice!

    New plan looks good Bob, I particularly like the split - any specific reason for that split or just as a bit of variety from your Upper/Lower workouts previously?

    Good luck with it all - time to GROW.
    Consistency is the key

    Subbed... time to EAT & LIFT like its going out of fashion..... can't wait to see some of the food pics /amount you will be posting up!!
    Big Exercises FIRST. Finishing Touches Later ALWAYS

    "Here's the thing...Something like 80% of the population doesn't even workout. Out of the 20% that do 80% don't squat... And out of the 20% that do squat, maybe 10% of those actually SQUAT! Not smith machine squats, not 1/4, not 1/2, or 2/3 squats, but actual squats... So call me surprised when I see someone doing 2/3 plate full ROM squats so effortlessly"

    Gym 1RM's (December 2014)

    Squat: 180kg 400lbs
    Bench: 130kg - 287lbs
    Deads: 225kg 497Lbs
    MOHP: 87.5kg - 193lbs

    Big 3 Total = 535kg - 1179.67lbs

    Thank you all so much for the support and the amount of Sub's overnight! 5 star this bad boy, because its gonna get crazy this offseason. Lets make sure all of you keep me in check and make sure i have a very successful offseason. Last year i added 10 pounds to my frame from my stage weight and came in leaner/stronger. I need to do the same year in and year out. Here is to working my ass off and getting it done.

    Day 2 in the weight room resumes today, then its a crazy week of work with 65 hours starting today!

    Smash it!

    65 Hours of work, nothing is better than working and then training in-between to keep everything rolling.

    2300 calories to bulk??? I'm guessing you're slowly upping the caloric intake again.

    congrats on the DB Deadlift PR!
    Thats the whole point of a REBOUND, you dont just add 1000 calories after a 26 week or contest prep diet, that would = instant fat gain. You have to slowly rev up your metabolism. Do some research on Layne's website, Alan's Website, Martin's or Lyles about post-contest rebound. You slowly add back in calories and slowly drop cardio.
