First of all before I start getting into all of this I want to thank you for reading on The BeastPack! I am the admin or webmaster (someone called me that in the comments and it entertained me a lot) and if you’d like to know my backstory ill post it here (add back story article)
Anyways so here is me currently (November 2015)
As you can see i’m alright. I definitely lift but I aint no Arnold (yet). When you read my backstory (which you should do) you will know I want to be a bodybuilder at the age of 18 I am still behind because I have only been training for bodybuilding for 9 months (I trained for football for 3.5 years) but I plan to compete in a 2016 physique competition! that is why this series is called “Road To The Start” because I believe I can’t truly call myself a bodybuilder until i compete! so this is The Road to The Start of my Career!
These are going to be my weekly articles on how I am progressing. I want to make them very interactive where you can learn some valuable bodybuilding information and make it so we can discuss how I am programming, what I am doing exercise wise, and what we can do to improve it!
The plan as of now is to bulk till march while I am still working with my coach (I paid a coach for 1 year and march will be our last month together) and then when I start coaching myself begin carb cycling and get down to a low body fat and compete in my first show in august of 2016.
The last 9 months has been a large mix of ups and downs there were times when I was eating perfectly and training perfectly and there were times when I was soo depressed that I missed workouts and my diet was shit.
The last 2 months diet has been good and workouts have been great. With school it is very hard to stay on diet and exercise because of how busy I am. I go to school 6 hours a day, homework 2 hours a day, work 8 hours a week and owning The BeastPack which takes a majority of my time because I try to constantly write articles, always have posts queued for my Facebook, tumblr, and Instagram, working on personal training programs, researching more on personal training and trying to sell personal training and clothing. So often I get busy and miss a meal or not be able to get to the gym but I hope with these articles I can work on planning my days out.
So now let’s get into what these articles are going to look like by looking back at this weeks training sessions and diet.
This week has been one of my busiest weeks. I have 3 major projects due on the Monday so it has been a week of working a few hours every night just on school work. This extra amount of work has made meals hard to keep on track. I tend to do work in large chunks so often I miss meals because I am working and then all of a sudden realize it Is 10pm and I’ve only had 4/6 meals and I have to be up at 6am so now I gotta somehow cook and eat 2 meals in an hour so I can at least get 7 hours sleep. I’ve now made notifications on my phone so it yells at me so I can’t lose track of time but we will see if that works.
Workouts this week though have been insane. I started a workout diary which after march I will be posting (I am under contract that with my current coach I can’t share my program) so I will be keeping that private until we start making my program in march!
Workouts are going great though I am constantly getting stronger especially in my shoulders. My chest has been having great workouts I’m starting to get that ass chested look (when your chest starts to look like a booty when you go into your most muscular pose just like this)
Anyways this has been the first of my Weekly Progress Articles. In all honesty I don’t know what this will become or what the format of these will be this is an off the cuff idea to produce more content. I also will be making more content based around the science of nutrition, and fitness so don’t worry it won’t all be personal.
Thank you again for reading this please leave your ideas for these weekly articles let me know what you want for these and I will try to make it so!
