  • Guy can you tell us what type of training protocal you are doing at this time. I think it was Evan or PJ who said they were using some DC training. What are you doing?
    Though the pain may come over you, never let it overcome you.

        I do basic instinct training..I have a regime that I follow, meaning certain body parts on certain days but as far as my training...I train heavy all year round, but I always am switching it up, Ill do some days all straight sets, others Ill do drop sets, giant sets, I'll through in some fst-7 some weeks...I hate keeping things the same I like shocking my muscles and keep them guessing and growing..I spoke with Dave over the weekend, and after a few months of letting my body finish rebounding we have some plans for mass building for the up coming year that i am excited to start..

            • Guy,
              first off congrats on your pro card! I just noticed that you now have your own thread here! That's awesome.

              I was wondering if you could give a typical off-season's day from the time you wake up to bedtime from meals, supps, and how you manages to eat 8 meals a day with a day job. This could motivate some of the up and comers (myself included) who also have to work a steady full time job and see that it can be done.
              What type of work do you do, is it hard labour or office-type job?
              Last, how much water to you take in per day, 1 gallon, 2 gallons?
              All the best, thanks.

                Whats up bro and thanks, the thread was started by a member and they moved it here, definatly wasn't expecting anything like this but getting good feed back so just trying to keep up with it...So I'll start with your first question and work my way up..I drink about 1 1/2 gallons per day offseason, pre contest about 2. I work in an office, suit and tie all day long..sucks..lol..I do finance, basically mortgages, insurance, home and auto policies etc.
                My daily routine is usually this right now talking OFF SEASON:
                Wake up at 7:30am, prepare all my food for the day, check emails and website to make sure I answered any questions I have before work.

                Meal 1: 8:45am
                5 whole eggs, 1 cup oats, 1 tbsp oil, 1 scoop Isolyze, in a blender..PROTEIN PANCAKE

                Meal 2: 12pm
                8-10oz chicken
                1 cup rice
                1 tbsp oil
                1/2 cup nuts

                Meal 3: 3pm
                8-10 oz red meat
                potato
                2 tbsp oil
                asparagus

                Meal 4: 6pm
                same as meal 3 with 1 cup rice-no potato

                7pm leave work, usually get home at 7:20, change and head off to the gym to train.

                Meal 5: (pre workout) 7:30pm
                2 scoops isolyze
                2 scoops carbolyze
                1 tbsp oil

                Meal 6: 9pm
                same as meal 5 without oil

                Meal 7: 9:30-9:45pm
                Same as meal 1

                Meal 8: 11:30pm
                2 scoops isolyze
                2 tbsp natural PB

                NO later than 12 in bed.

                My supps right now are
                ultra juice
                acidophilus
                zma
                vit c
                coral calcium
                Uniliver by universal
                Artholyze-species joint supp
                Testostolyze-species anti estrogen
                Fiberlyze-spercies fiber
                Omegalyze-species omegas
                Isolyze-species protein
                Carbolyze-speceis waxy maize
                and yes I take all those species products not because Im sponsored by them but because they are very good and they work, if they didn't I wouldn't use them..The other products I take I get from vitamine shoppe.


                I eat meals 2,3,4 at my work, I bring a cooler to work and eat at my desk, my boss never says anything, as long as I do my work and get my shit done I can pretty much do what I want so it's good in some ways but I hate what I do Im looking for something else. It's not hard to eat even with a job all you need is a cooler and some tupper wear and your good to go..I don't understand how people bitch about it, its not hard. And I cook all my food on Wed and Sun..I cook in bulk to make my life easier.

                      • Guy, love your physique bro. It may sound funny, but I thought your tan is what really made you stand out at Nationals. Anyway, wanted to see what your gameplan was for 2009 since you are obviously going to take time off to build up into a quality 202 competitor. Were you thinking multiple DVD's to journal your experience? Not just the freebie stuff you put on "In the Trenches" here at MD. Were you thinking about being a major spokesperson for Species or other supplement companies (that may approach you). I think the most important thing for you is going to be the challenge of staying visible while taking the time to improve.

                        • Guy-

                          What do you think about Wheat Protein Isolate? My last competition after I dropped my water I was light real light at 210 lbs on May 3rd. I am now 265 lbs, I eat pretty clean other then having a protein bar here and there but I am getting 400 g protein a day and I am following a good off season program, my question is... I seem to have developed a fat ass lol, and I guess it really isn't funny but its like cellulite when I squeeze my glutes. My waist looks a little wide as well. I know I have to let my body grow and take in essential fat but I can't figure out where I am going wrong. Anything?

                            Also getting back to somebody's critique of ur calves?
                            I 2nd that your physique is perfectly balanced other than the calves that need to come up. Would you say thats attributed to being flat-footed? Im also flat footed (1 flexible arch, 1 rigid) and my physio noticed 1 calve has sigifcantly less girth than the other. I think its cos of the fallen arch, theres no adjacent calf muscle involvement when theres no arch. No stretch, therefore no squeeze. What cha reckon?
                            Yeah I have had flat feet since I was a kid, and I have orthodics for about 8 years, I actually just got fitted for my new pair 3 weeks ago...My calves definatly lag because of my feet, problem is when I do my calve raises my bottoms of my feet give out before my calves, the pain on the bottoms of my feet are unbearable...Playing football was a bitch sometimes too because if we had to do any distance running I was always hurting becuase the pain of having flat feet is ridiculous..When I was in HS I had to get 4 cordizone shots in the bottoms of my feet bc I had planerfacitious (spelling)..and you want to talk about pain, worst pain of my life

                              I am taking all of 2009 off and hopefully going to compete in May of 2010.. But things I do plan on putting together a DVD, but I am not sure how it would do, so when I get feed back from people I take it into consideration, I don't know how many people want to see a middle weight training, but I have gotten some decent feedback so that might be a good plan this year to put something together. As for species I plan to be with Dave/Species for awhile, things are being discussed about my future with Species so we will see what happens..
