Personal Update – October 2012
Hi brothers and sisters in iron! How have you been doing? Been strict with your dieting and training? I hope you are. Well, on my side, if you’re wondering how’s my progress, here’s a lil update.
Yup, that’s me, as of 3rd October 2012. I now weigh 84kg, but my weight (along with strength) is increasing rapidly. This is the heaviest I’ve ever been and I’m glad to say I’m also leaner than I was the last time I bulked. I plan to go up to the 90+kg region without becoming a puffy boy. Haha.
Diet wise, I’m eating really big. I’m not counting calories or macronutrients but I’m constantly stuffing myself with tonnes of nutritious clean food like eggs, beef, veggies, whey, almonds, protein bars and oats (yes, the farts are really bad). I’ve also upgraded my supplements to the highest of highest quality, premium brand – Maximuscle. For post-workouts, I use Maximuscle’s Cyclone. It’s basically your fast-absorbing protein (only hydrolyzed whey and whey isolates), creatine and glucose mix but with additional powerful ingredients such as beta ecdysterone and HMB. Google these nutrients. I’m sure you’ll be impress.
My training has never been more efficient. I’ve been reading on many theories, researches, logs, interviews or whatever I can have my hands on, assessing, analyzing, evaluating and critiquing them and I’ve created a very, umm.. should I say, unconventional training method. At first I was doubtful about it, cause it’s kinda.. weird, but now I love it. It’s brief, so there’s no overtraining; progressive, so you’ll see strength gains in every workout (provided you consume enough clean calories); focuses on fascia stretching and most of all, it works. I’ve been on it for 4 weeks now and I went from 77kg to 84kg. And that doesn’t include the post-contest bloat because I started in September, way after my last contest. What is it? Sorry guys, I’ll have to keep it a secret for now, but I will be coaching it to clients who takes up my personal training services. And of course, I will keep on tweaking it to make it better.
Now this is the part I LOVE to talk about! So, what is my next big goal? Well, I wanna win Mr Kuala Lumpur 2013 overall and then Mr Malaysia 2013 overall. Wait, some of you guys are probably thinking, “Dude! You’re f*cking crazy! You’ll be only 23 and there are so many other guys in the game who outsize you by a lot!”. To you guys, I must say that you are absolutely…
I AM outsized by many competitors in the Malaysian bodybuilding scene. And it’d probably be a more practical strategy if I lower my goal to say, winning my category at Mr Kuala Lumpur and perhaps getting 2nd or 3rd at Mr Malaysia. But I won’t do that. Why? Cause even though my goals are hard to reach, they are what I TRULY want. I WANT TO WIN! I don’t want to settle for second. I really want to get FIRST! And that almost-impossible goal of mine is bringing out an impossible inner strength in me to keep on going. It’s pushing me so hard like nothing else before. When I’m walking to the gym and listening to my motivational playlist, it’s all I can think about and I sometimes even find my eyes tearing (serious). It makes me mad. It makes me happy. It makes me excited. It brings out the beast in me. It’s making me train harder and diet stricter. When such a goal is able trigger so many emotions in you, why settle for anything less?
So will I achieve my goal? Or will I fail miserably? Like Fabodylous on Facebook to find out what happens eventually.
