Bodybuilding.com’s Project Mass – Round 2 – Day 41 – Strength Based Leg Day

StrengthLegDayGreetings, all.

How are you funky cats doing today?

Fat Buff is going to go under a few changes here in the coming weeks. Bigger. Better. Worry not, I’m still gonna be repping for all the Fat Buff cats out there, but things are going to be more expansive. With multiple writers, videos, even merchandise. Even a different name. So, look for that. I really want to turn this into a big deal, and I can’t do that with you guys. I really appreciate all those who have been following the website for months now, especially if you tell others. I’m going to do right by you cats, and promise that whatever time or energy you put into this place won’t be in vein, because things are going to get a hell of a lot better. Dig it.

My back, like I’m talking all over, lower, traps, and especially rear delts are sore. That high-intensity session of T-Bar Rows I did yesterday really did the trick. It goes to show that once in a while it’s OK to break form, and over-load the body. Of course, don’t be stupid and start doing sloppy Deadlifts, or Squats. But pick a safe exercise you can do a bit sloppy, and go to town.

Alrighty, let’s get it.

Bodybuilding.com’s Project Mass – Round 2 – Day 35 – Strength Based Leg Day

StrengthLegDayGreetings, all.

Everyone should have a day like this during their workout week. I love working out, but I freely admit that I some what dread this workout. Heavy squats, followed then by heavy deads/rack pulls are a task. These are the two most feared & disliked exercises in the weight-lifting game, and not only are they real heavy, but they’re back to back. So when you’re staring down the barrel of it, it can be a little daunting, and you can be a bit tempted to take it easy on yourself.

But don’t. I mean, don’t go hurting yourself or anything, but don’t take it super easy on yourself, and give up the chance to do yourself a lot of good. Not only will facing these exercises give you strength & muscle mass all over, but it also toughens you up mentally. Most people will not push themselves into an uncomfortable situation, but situations like those are essential for both muscle growth and growth as a person. So, c’mon, let’s get it, and don’t slack. Even though I dread it a little, I’m always so happy when I’m in the thick of it, and so will you.

Alrighty, let’s get it.

The photo wasn’t showing up when I did “preview”, so hopefully it’s showing up for you. Now, my computer is 10 years old, so perhaps that’s why it won’t show up.

As you guys know, I had a murderous adventure yesterday having to move. I got freaking sun burnt. Sun burnt! Who the hell gets sun burnt in this day and age? And it’s just a sun burn on top of my head to boot. I woke up feeling pretty beat up too. Because I worked out yesterday morning, heavy pull day, then 3 hours later I went on an hour long walk then had to do nothing but move heavy boxes and furniture non-stop for 4 hours. So, of course, what’s on today’s workout docket? Heavy squats, deads, and other fun things.

Alrighty, let’s get it.

StrengthLegDayGreetings, all.

Before we get started, there’s a brand new episode of Mercy Is For The Weak podcast, as well as the Man Movie Encyclopedia podcast located over at nomercysir.podomatic.com. Do enjoy.

For some reason, last night around 10pm I had some terrible heart burn, unlike I’ve ever felt before. It was terrible. I eventually fell asleep, but the stomach acid and such had me feeling like shit when I woke up, and slept almost 2 hours longer than usual. Now, this week with Project Mass is a recovery week where you’re not suppose to do more than 2 or 3 sets an exercise, with a very small amount of reps. So, with that, and feeling like shit, I almost didn’t go in. However, I decided to go in and do some cardio.
I got there, did about 5 minutes, started to feel better, and just went to do a light leg workout. I felt good about it, and was glad I did it. So, next time you’re feeling like you don’t want to hit the gym, just drink some water, some Gatorade and protein, get under the gym’s roof, and you’ll be good to go.
I do apologize, the workout for today isn’t going to be interesting at all.

Alrighty, let’s get it.

StrengthLegDayGreetings, all.

At the gym today I got a hell of a compliment. One of my friends, who’s been working-out for 20 years, warms up with 90lbs for Incline Bench Flyes, is big, as well as cut, thanked me for the advice I’d given him over the past couple weeks that set him on a path he’s real stoked about. He said I’m the first person whose advice he’s taken in 10, 15 years. I won’t lie, I felt real good about that. I love to help people, and to be able to help someone with so much experience made me feel very proud.
That’s why I said don’t ever half-ass your endeavors. When I really got into bodybuilding 5 years ago, I wasn’t doing much research, and was a bit dogmatic in my training. I stuck to one style for quite a few years, and wouldn’t listen to anything else. Well, almost 2 years ago all that changed. I began reading everything I could get my hands on, doing all the research I could, and then applying it through tests & trials. I made a choice to quit half-assing something I was doing, and instead be the very best at it that I could. What resulted from that have been the best gains of my life. I’m bigger, stronger, and more educated about the sport than I’ve ever been. I’ve helped myself become the best possible version, and have been able to help others as well.
People may say you have an ego, or it’s stupid to want to be the best at everything you do, but I say it’s foolish not too. There’s nothing bad that ever comes as a result of being your best self, and in being confident enough to stand toe to toe with anyone else in that field. As I said, no matter what the endeavor is, striving to be the best at it not only helps to create the best possible version of yourself, but can also help those around you.

Alrighty, let’s get it.

Bodybuilding.com’s Project Mass – Round 2 – Day 10 – Strength Based Leg Day – Plus, How to Start Eating To Help Your Goals

StrengthLegDayGreetings, all.

Had a person that I’m training say that it’s difficult to keep eating the right foods. they were wondering if they should just keep the house void of all junk-food.

In my opinion, absolutely not. I don’t like the idea of something controlling your life so badly that you can’t simply do what you want once in a while. A lot of people get so obsessed with losing weight that they believe they can’t have something a bit-off track here and there, and if they do, it completely ruins their day and they stress about it more than most things. I can tell you guys that the stress you put yourselves under regarding whatever you ate is so much worse for your body than just eating it would be. I absolutely guarantee it, as things like cortisol, and blood pressure shoot up when stress takes over the body. It’s literally one of the worst things you can put it through.

Look at it like this, let’ say you eat like crap 24/7. Just day in and day out. Is choosing to have a salad for lunch one day going to make any sort of difference? Of course not. So how will it when you reverse it?

Beyond that, the key I say is habit, and foods you dig. For me, I honestly eat the same things just about every day, at the same time, and have for literally a couple years. Buying them, cooking them, it’s all become 2nd nature to me because I’ve been doing them for so long.

Start small. Add some fruit, be it apple sauce, banana, pears, peaches, whatever to your diet at some point in the day, and try to always eat it at the same time. Then over the course of a few weeks, swap in some better things, things you like, and keep on going. Eventually you’ll have a great eating regimen that’s easy, that you enjoy, and that helps you with your goals. Not too shabby.

And on the flip side, the same goes for bulking. Don’t wake up one day and decide you’re going to eat 5000 calories that day. Start adding 100 calories extra to your day, and then ramp it up every week or two. You gotta stretch your stomach, and get your body use to eating so much, otherwise it’s just going to be a nightmare and you’ll end up quitting on it pretty soon.

Alrighty, let’s get it.
