Weights and Meals

“Whatever It Takes” is a docuseries where a… let’s be nice and say “Husky” 51 year-old purchases the expertise of an IFBB Pro Bodybuilder to take him from the brink of “Fluffy” to Ripped and Shredded. How to eat, how to train, supplements, drugs… the ultimate objective to compete in a bodybuilding show… with every intention of WINNING. The trials and tribulations of becoming a 51 year-old bodybuilder, getting Shredded, and doing… WHATEVER IT TAKES… Day 1 Chest Pec-dec (to pre-exhaust): 4 sets of 12 reps – arch your sternum high, and on every rep, hold the contraction for 1 second. Incline DB Press- 4 sets; 15 reps, 12 reps, 10 reps, 8 reps (all to failure – pyramid up in weight)– use whatever grip is most comfortable and that you feel most in the chest. I personally prefer my elbows pointing down at about a 45 degree angle from my body, and I hold the dumbbells about midway between a pronated (palms down) and a neutral (hammer) grip. Dips – 3 sets to failure (add weight if you can) lean in on these, get a good stretch in your chest on all reps (use an assist machine if you […]

Should I Do A Documentary On Getting Ripped?

September 15, 2018

Would you like to see a personal documentary of what it takes to get from 300 lbs down to a ripped, stage ready 250? Even if you’re not looking to be a bodybuilder, the same principles apply on a slightly less painful regiment to simply get in the best shape you can. I have so many questions about how to train and what to eat that I thought this may be of interest to a large segment. I have a professional willing to coach me, both in the gym and with my diet. He seems to think I can actually win a show if I do what he tells me to do. He approached me, not the other way around, so I have no reason to doubt him. It’s a big commitment and it will require a lot of focus and dedication. So if I’m going to do it, I need a reason… especially a reason to document it. Let me know!
