At the moment with contest prep im doing a rolling routine.

We will have to see, there are a few available, but very ameture and novice with few sponsers and prizes etc. So I dont want to work my ass off and go through all cotest prep for little to no reward.

So far in April next year there is a big competition, will give me great time to put on some decent size and work on my weak points etc.

No doubt. Definitely an inspiration, man. I don't really want to compete, but I need to start making moves with this fitness stuff in one capacity or another. Seeing you go for it makes me want to push this shit forward.

Sucks that this is going to be my last week of PHAT for awhile. Still breaking PRs. Did 415 x5 today. My legs hurt but nothing like last week.

I think I'm going to do a strength based routine on my break from PHAT. Possibly WSB, Sheiko, or 531. If I go with something hypertrophy based I might do Matt Ogus' push/pull/legs.

A friend of mine asked to do a repeat shoot of one we did 2 years ago this Saturday. It'll cool to have some comparison of the progress I've made in that time. I'll be sure to post some of the pics here whenever I get them.

Thanks, man. I was looking at the pics from a couple years back and I've come a good ways since then. Unfortunately, it's nothing like the transformation you've made over the past year. So bear with me. lol

Really appreciate it. After the video next week I'll probably just start putting up fitness related videos. The info probably won't be too useful to the guys around here. Mainly just for people I know and facebook friends who are always asking similar questions.

Thanks man. You've definitely been a motivating force in my workouts.

Seriously, before PHAT I would have never thought I would look forward to Leg day. When I come back to the program with a few adjustments I want to make I think I'll be doing something similar with deadlifts. Gotta stop using my being tall as an excuse.

The footage I shot last weekend came out horrible so I need to reshoot this weekend. I'll have the final week's update ASAP.

In the meantime, here's a pic from the revamp shoot I did last weekend.

The legs have improved a whole lot since '10. We were trying to replicate the shoot from before. Back then I'd never dare show my legs. lol

Thanks, man!
WWBB doesn't have nearly as much volume, but you leave the gym feeling like you conquered the world. Every set is a challenge. I think if I had a dedicated spotter I would really be able to make the most of the program.

Yeah, I did all of PHAT without a partner. Only time I really wanted a spot was for the power chest exercise though. The personal trainers at my gym are always no where to be found whenever I need a spot, and random spotters need a 5 min crash course on not attacking the bar at my slightest hesistation during the lift. lol

For a couple of the weeks I had someone film me, but most weeks I just put the camera on a tripod. It feels a lot more natural to talk to someone holding the camera though. Looking at the tripod I go into "um.. yeah, you know... um. duhhhh." mode.

I'm going to be in Houston this weekend and have some guys that want to train with me for the day. Gonna get them to take some videos of me on my phone. Still 1080p but they wont come out as clean bc the iphone lens can't mimic the depth of field that my nikon lens has.

Nobody gives a shit about all that anyway though. We just want to see you lift dude!

I need to contact my local officials about getting this pioneer day though. That's badass.

@Swayz87 the photography/video stuff is just a hobby. I'm an electrical engineer. I'm in New Orleans, I just have some friends who recently moved out to Houston and I'm going to check out their spot.

I only got a few from this last shoot we did. I have a big one coming up in a couple weeks though. Hoping to get a lot of different looks on that one. Here's a couple others from that shoot though.

I mostly do power and lighting design. So mainly getting power to pumps/motors/etc. I'm actually stationed at a chemical plant right now. Depending where you are chemical engineers can make some serious bank.

I work for a consulting firm and it seems like the mechanical engineers are the ones who end up making the most.
