Week 10 Lean Gain Phase

Well I am pretty much over my cold now and this morning I weighed in at 208.8 lbs so that’s down from last Saturday’s weight but up from Monday’s 207 lbs. I am hoping for an increase of about a half a pound increase this coming Monday. If I can keep gaining a half pound per week I should be about 210 lbs the final Monday before I start my prep.

My chest definitely seems to be growing as are my arms so I am really feeling that I will be in a great spot starting my prep. I want to be competitive as I am not just doing this for the experience. Time will tell how well I do but I feel I have a solid base on which to compete and I am extremely pleased with what I have been able to accomplish with a years worth of solid training. I just need to focus on coming in as ripped as possible and with Layne in my corner I am pretty confident I will nail my prep. I need to take more pictures for Layne so will be posting those up tomorrow.

  • Hi VG,

    Just out of interest. What is your projected final weight range on contest day? and what is your height?

    Good luck!

    Kind regards, Graham

    • Hi Graham,

      I have yet to discuss contest prep with Layne as we have not entered that phase yet. I think Layne may have a ball park number but ultimately it how you look that matters most and what you judge by. I don;t have to make a certain weight or anything so I just need to focus on coming in as lean and ripped as possible. In my head I am thinking 180 to 185 lbs at 5′ 11″.

      • Hi Vanguard,

        You are focussing on the correct goals, ie. getting as lean and ripped as possible whilst still looking good.
        Just out of interest 180/185lb was the figure I had in mind for you considering your weight and how you look at the moment.

        Good luck!
