MOST RECENT

Possibly the worst start to the week, sleep wise I have ever had!

Had a few extra things going on and haven't managed to actually get in bed for long enough during my usual little nap times with baby, during the day, to actually get to sleep.

Due to lack of sleep I had almost a full serve of pre workout when I trained at 5pm and still felt so wired last night in bed, I couldn't get to sleep, hence the extra late sleep time.

Feeling like my body is starting to not cope very well with so little sleep, day to day... hopefully my heart continues to beat for a while longer at least.

My favourite photo from the 2018 Arnold Classic Australia Fitness Expo.

Client @Brian_Carminati taking a lovely photo with little @ZacPerna

The reason I appreciate this photo so much, is because Brian only has one leg and the leg he doesn't have, is still bigger than Zac's.

--== TRAINING & NUTRITION UPDATE ==-- I have been very consistent with my diet this year. The goal has been to prep my meals like I used to, get all the good animal and plant meals in each day and if I want to eat more or if I am provided with extra calories, then just add those on top of the base diet. No skipping meals to then fit my macros. No reducing portions of good foods to fit in shit. Just eat all my meals and be consistent with that... as that is something I was definitely not doing for the last half of 2017 and my training and physique really suffered because of it.

Base diet macros still around: P300 C200 F100, but I would be averaging so many more than that each day, mainly from fruits, nuts, yoghurts and any other foods I am gifted.

Weight has been hovering between 99-101kg the last few weeks. Starting to feel big and strong again in the gym. Everything has been progressing weight/rep wise of late, except for legs, as my left quad has been rather tight the last 2 weeks. I have been a little worried about tearing it, so I have really backed off on my quad stuff and will stretch and roll it out and hopefully loosen it up, so I can get back into squatting some PB's. ^_^

Going to keep eating up and training hard for the majority of the rest of the year, focussing on getting bigger and stronger. The last 4-5 years I stayed very lean and my training was constantly plateaued, so feeling fat and happy about making some gains again now.

Twenty percent bodyfat may look unimpressive, but my mental state is always so much better the fatter I am and my training always progresses much smoother. *CONTINUED IN COMMENTS*

@Kate_Bulavina 13 months post comp, calories almost at 3000, 9kg up on stage weight and still looking fairly lean!

Kate competed for the first time ever, 13 months ago and won her division and the overall in the ICN Rookie Show. Over the last 13 months, she has reversed her calories up in a controlled manner, gotten stronger than ever in almost all her lifts, slowly and steadily gained weight and definitely grown some more muscles in the process, especially through the lower body, which is where our emphasis has mostly been.

Still in great shape and with such a strong calorie intake, means she has a great capacity to diet back down for our next comp prep.

Well done Kate, on everything thus far and I can't wait to see you up on stage again later this year, with some new glutes! ^_^

Friend and client (Notice I put friend first? That is so I don't get bashed.) @krista_mindtomuscle 6 months post comp, 5kg (11lbs) up on stage weight, calories up from 750/day (last two weeks of prep) to 2500/day now.

Feeling fuller, stronger, more mentally stable (some may dissagree) and still nice and lean.

This is what being controlled with your nutrition post comp and reversing your calories up gradually looks like.

If you want to have a productive off-season, without giving yourself 30lbs of fat and a 6 month cutting phase to diet back down again, then do as Krista does and eat sensibly post comp.

Reverse dieting for the win.

So how do we stay lean and make gains still?

Eat at a calorie surplus (slight surplus) and progressively overload.
Stay safe. ^_^
