    HG2018

    Previous log : https://www.tmuscle.co.uk/threads/hg2017.30500/

    This is an overview of the year 2018 which will be my 9th year of training.

    Plan is to complete a year of Powerlifting, ostensibly to hit 800 total in u110 category.

    Current weight is 262lbs/119KG. Height is just over 6 foot.

    DIET

    Diet is essentially the same as last year.

    I eat what I want when I want but essentially pretty healthy most of the time.

    Example diet :-

    2 scoops BulkPowders protein in 500mg hazelnut/almond/cashew soya milk.
    3 large jacket potatoes, 3 tins of tuna with light mayo, 8 boiled eggs, cheese.
    200g smoked salmon.
    Bananas and other fruit.
    Evening meal which is usually chicken/fish, potatoes/rice and veg. Monster portion.
    Dessert which is usually 1 bar 85% cocoa dark chocolate.
    2 scoops BulkPowders protein in 500mg hazelnut/almond/cashew soya milk. As much Whole Earth Peanut Butter as I can want.
    Fruit and fruit juice as and when I want.
    Fluids come from sparkling water (sometimes mixed with cordial) and occasionally diet Coke.

    No idea of total cals or macros and don't give a fook. If I am hungry, I just eat more. No alcohol as I am an all-or-nothing man and I cannot afford to go missing on a bender (on a personal and professional level). I don't smoke or take any recreational drugs.

    I don’t bother with peri-nutrition.

    SUPPs

    I seem to have become sporadic when I take these and when I take shakes - essentially I take them when I feel like it.

    2g Fish oils.
    1 multivit.
    1 Aspirin (on and off, when I have some etc).
    1 anti-histamine (Ceterizine Hydrochloride - general allergies).
    1 Ranitidine (stomach acid).
    1 * 500mg Celery Seed (this is pushed to 3 times a day if BP rises, also I have Lisinopril if the need arises).
    Apple Cider vinegar when I remember.

    TRAINING

    I have a long-standing left shoulder girdle injury which highly impedes my bench press and slightly impedes my deadlift. Squat is fine. Plan is to work on all three lifts whilst ensuring that upper left hand side and whole of the upper body is prioritised. Training is going to be programmed by the legend that is @LittleLiam.

    One of my aims this year is to improve the physique too, especially delts and arms. Here are a couple of pics pre-comp (August) at approx 123KG, 19 1/2 stones).

    COMP PBs

    750KG in u125 M1 category is my current comp total (only comp, August 2017).

    DL : 300KG (Aug 2018) - LittleLiam didn’t get vid due to phone storage running out. Actual PB is 305KG (February 2016) - see video.





    SQ : 300KG (Aug 2018) - see vid. This equals my best gym lift of 300KG (February 2016).



    BP : 150KG (Aug 2018) - see vid. Gym lift PB is 166KG (June/July 2013) - no vid.



    Since the injury (approx 4 years), my BP has decreased by 16KG, DL I have added just 17KG but SQ (unaffected) I have added 70-80KG. Treatment on LHS injury is coming along nicely (once weekly Sports Massage Therapy) and I will confidently predict that I will beat all existing comp and gym PBs this year.

    Current base figures are approximately 260DL, 250SQ and 145BP.

    AAS

    All Chiron unless mentioned.

    I go to Orlando with family on Mar 31st so I have approx 12 weeks for phase 1. After Orlando, then phase 2 is comp prep and comps (awaiting LL to find some decent comps for me).

    2.5g Test E pw.
    1g NPP.
    10mg SD on waking and before sleep.
    50mg Halo pre-WO when needed.
    1 tab Aromasin when I need it.
    1000iu Pregnyl HCG pw when I remember.

    I will drop to a 500mg pw cruise for 4 weeks when I want/feel it is necessary.

    I like GH so may add some when I can be fooked.

    HEALTH

    I take health very seriously and try to follow the findings in this OP.

    https://www.tmuscle.co.uk/threads/sensible-precautions-whilst-using-aas.32313/

    I have a new job starting January 8th which will include travel so I’ll have to see how I can fit the training/food/gear around that, I am 100% determined to go all out this year, no drink at all too, so I will make it fookin happen.

    2018 is the year I smash some PL comps, break all PBs and finally stop benching like a phaggot!!

    Have you ran slin before HG? I can’t remember.

    I’ve just played with long slin for the first time n must say I was quite impressed with the recovery n fullness added. There wasn’t gh huge issue of fat storage or major nock on insulin sensitivity with the way I ran it.

    Drop me a message or can discuss here if you think it may help n want the info.

    Thanks mate, I'm happy to discuss here if you are?

    JW had me on 180iu Lantus per day and I got fat. You had me on 15iu Fast pre and post-WO and I got ripped. I'm happy to give anything a go (apart from Max's lifestyle :D ).

    Squatting 300KG is hard work, I can assure you of that :lol:

    It depends on whether I weight cut and go for u110KG or stay at u125KG.

    u110KG : 310+ SQ (wraps), 170+ BP, 320+ DL.
    u125KG : 330+ SQ (wraps), 170+ BP, 330+ DL.

    Are they realistic?? I don't know but that is what I will aim for over the whole of 2018.

    All the best, congrats on the new job!

    Goals look realistic, no 'blips' will surely see those numbers fall!!!
