So Proud!

So my coach Dr. Layne Norton competed in the 2012 AFP Europa Raw Challenge in Orlando Florida on the weekend in the 220 lb class at a body weight of 213.6 pounds. So incredible to not only have a coach that talks the talk but walks the walk! Its the reason I went with Layne as my coach. Layne won … Read More

Week 8 Lean Gain Phase

So for this week Layne upped my carbs another 5 grams a day. In addition I decided to take this week off from training as I could tell my body just needed a break. So I upped the total carbs but then reduced my total carbs by 20% to account for the decrease in activity. Weight last Saturday was 206.8 … Read More

Week 7 Lean Gain Phase

After upping the carbs by 15g a day for the week my weight has rebounded and I weighed in at 206.8 lbs up a pound from 205.8 lbs last week. I still pushed hard on the power days but on the hypertrophy days made sure I was not going to failure until the last set. In a few cases I … Read More

Week 6 Lean Gain Phase

Set a personal record in deadlift of 350 lbs for 5 reps on Tuesday which was impressive considering I have not done any deadlift training for a month. Of course then I had to come home and find out my coach set a personal record himself in deficit deadlifts which is even harder then regular deadlifts. Layne is definitely keeping … Read More

Well another week and I am up another pound to 206.4 lbs so that’s 5.6 lbs gained in 5 weeks. Another killer workout today with increases in weight yet again.
