  • Big Patt's Training Journal

    What's up people. My name is Patt Porter. A Personal Trainer, Strength Coach, and Contest Prep Coach from Florida. Bare with I'm new to posting a journal in a forum. I've competed in the N.P.C. since 2006 with moderate success, but now I'm ready to take it to the next level. My next show is August 20th in Orlando Florida, the State Championship, and I'd like some help and motivation from you guys, my peers here at MD! I'll get to my background and challenges later, first some stats and my Brutal leg workout from yesterday!
    Current Weight: 274 pounds

    Height: 5' 10 1/2" (Yes I want my half an inch!)

    BF: not known but right now soft and watery like superheavyweight would be at 16 weeks out

    Age: 38 and like all guys my age that have been training 20+ years I have minor aches and pains

    Ok my diet is handled by IFBB Pro Mike Horn, one of the smartest guys in the business and a great friend. For the current workout I sought the advice of Matt Kroc and I'm combining that with what has worked for me in the past. I just like having a plan.

    So here goes: Leg work 4/25/11 Monday:

    5 minute bike warm up.
    Leg Press Hell!
    Set 1: (With a 3 second descent) 4 plates a side x 10, immediately add a plate, 5 plates a side x 10, immediately add a plate, 6 plates a side immediately add a plate x 10. 30 reps total

    Set 2: 6 plates x10 add two plates a side!, 8 plates x 10 add one plate, 9 plates x 10. 30 friggin reps total

    Set 3: 9 plates x 10 add a plate, 10 plates x 8 add plate, 11 plates x 8. 26 reps total, done!

    Hack Squats: To rock bottom! Again with a 3 second descent. With these we touch the pin, If it don't "click" at the bottom, the rep doesn't count
    20 x 3 plates per side, 15 x 4 plates, 10 x 5 plates per side

    Squats: Now we squat!! Again in the hole to the bottom which doesn't allow me to use much weight at all after the first two exercises
    275 x 10, 315 x 10, 315 x 10, drop one plate 225 x failure at 25 reps or so

    Leg Extensions: 4 x failure at 30, 27, 25, 22 reps ([email protected]#K!)

    Standing Calf raises full stack 3 x 25

    Brutal! I'll start posting pics and video of my fat ass soon!
