Haven't posted in a bit so here goes. Lol. Chest starting to shape. Very slow as waiting on a MRI scan for my rotator cuff. Left shoulder and arm so weak compared to right side. Very disheartening and frustrating as gains very slow but I'll keep at it.

Leanest 205 I've ever been! The gains don't mean shit if its fat and soft, learned that the hard way so I'm bulking differently this time. Better diet and bigger push in the gym. #Ted #diabetics #diabeticmuscle #fitness #weightlifting #vikingfitness

Make your own 200 lb DB πŸ˜‰ After pulldowns and a few higher rep sets with the 175's...my brain starting ticking.
After seeing @jjanowit ducktaping the shit out of lighter DBs to hold more weight...I did what I could with my bands lol
Not the prettiest. But this deep in the workout. Who cares. Sometimes you just gotta move weight. And the back is one muscle group which I have seen to respond to brutal force.
6 more weeks. Strength is OK. Depending on the day. And depending on how much #Razor8 I take πŸ˜‰

This is the year...I'm telling you this is the year I'll bring it. @troponin_nutrition and I have learned a lot about my body and how my #diabetes reacts to things during prep. @teamallmax #bodybuilding #bodybuilder #gym #muscle #dbrows #back #backday #rows #heavy #trainhard #lift #contestprep #npc #6weeksout

Thank you so much to my @teamedge coaches and family @ingridromero1 and @joediscuillo πŸ™πŸ»πŸ’‹ They were by my side, supportive, positive and guided me through this challenging prep... and to put some icing on my chocolatey reeses cake, I earned 3rd place πŸ† πŸ€— A big thank you to @spectrumfitnessproductions For allowing me to be a part of the #norcal show! .

I don't think there is ever an "easy" prep that any competitor goes through, it shouldn't be easy! But with the right team, coaches and support, nothing can stop you πŸ‘πŸ»

Off-season in full swing now haha. Weighing 190 right now. All the progression I have made in the gym in my key lifts is seriously putting on size. For the first time my upper body is looking bigger than my legs.

Sorry...yes another diabetes post. It's a huge part of my life so... yea.
But I am excited and super proud. Only diabetics now truly how hard blood sugar and insulin control can be.
The past 2 weeks my average sugar has been 102! 80% in range, 19% low and only 1% high!
With exercise, strict diet, and understanding the pharmacology of insulin, I have been able to achieve and hold perfect and even better than non-diabetic control over my diabetes.
I am excited to see how I can keep this going. I will be healthier than ever, no different than a healthy non-diabetic.
And for my bodybuilding goals...I will look great at my show but looking in the future. I will be able to grow muscle easier, while staying leaner and performing in the gym better.
If you have a diligent mindset and drive...you can do this. Make your doctors scratch their heads at how you did it. My doctors ask me questions all the time.
This is our health we are dealing with here. Why half ass it? Why risk having to deal with complications?!? I really just go by feel and watching my Dexcom. I bloused .8iu all day for 95g carb. Only used 23iu basal.
Thanks again to @dexcom The technology you have for blood sugar monitoring is priceless. Every diabetic should have a Dexcom in my opinion. Using the handy reports in the Clarity app I can really dial things in. #type1 #type1strong #diabetes #diabeticmuscle #diabeast #diabetic #type1diabetes #t1d #health #insulin #cgm #bloodsugar #medicine #insulinpump #proud #prouddiabetic @medtronicdiabetes #dexcomwarrior

Lightest I have been in years. But not terribly flat which is odd. 2 scoops of @teamallmax #hvol had me looking nice and full. Oh and...#razor8 has been my savior this prep. Long days suck but Razor gets me in the zone within minutes 😎

Over the past 90 days I've brought my average blood sugars from 137 to 105😊

6 meals per day, with carbs in the first 5 meals.
The past 2 weeks have pretty much been just like this. Very stable. The only peaks in blood sugars are planned around my workouts to give me a bit of a "sugar reserve" while training.
I compared my day yesterday to what a non diabetics blood sugar tends to be.
Essentially like a non-diabetic.

1.7iu bolus and 25.925 basal...27.625iu total. Non diabetics average 35 to 50iu naturally produced.
Being very basal driven, there really are no peaks or valleys in insulin.
Technically better than a non diabetic 😊
If I can maintain my average bg of 105 with how I have things dialed in right now. That makes an A1C of 5.1 😊😊 #type1 #type1strong #diabetes #diabetic #t1d #dexcom #cgm #trendline #TrendlineTuesday #health #bloodsugar #insulin #insulinpump #diabeticmuscle
