As requested I'm putting up my training log. Today is my last day of SD (finally!!) and I can go back to the gym again tomorrow. I'm beginning my fifth consecutive HST cycle, having only missed two workouts since my first one back in May. This wasn't my first experience with HST and had it not been for some minor setbacks I choose not to focus on, I'd be further along than I am now. That said, my progress over the last six months has been the best I've ever had and am now seriously thinking about bodybuilding competition. As of today, there are contests coming up that are 31, 39, 50, and 55 weeks out and I'm not sure yet which I'll enter. My immediate goal is to see if I can put on about ten to fifteen pounds in the next 14 weeks. If I can do that, I'll have time (about 16 weeks) to diet down for the first comp, and come in at the top of the middleweight class. This is also not my first experience with bodybuilding competition and have no doubt that I can get down to about 5% BF in that time. I just need to add some more muscle to come in at the top of the class. Currently: Height: 6 ft 1/2 in (really, really, tall for a middleweight, I know) Weight: 185 BF: ~15% Depending on how things go, I'll start thinking about moving up to the light-heavies next year. Here is a copy of my workout card. I have been developing a rather elaborate spreadsheet on OpenOffice Calc that generates the suggested weights for each workout based either on RM's, or on the max weight used during the last cycle, and then prints the workout card.
