Do you sometime feel or wonder as if...you're too much into it?

All I can think lately is my training, my foods, my upcoming contest, the mass I need to gain (God contest is only in July2004)...like it's ALWAYS on my mind, at work, at home, n my sleep...Gee, I almost bummed into a car this morning 'cause of this LOL...was listening to a song..and thinking of what kind'of routine I could do with it...

Precontest I understand the need of constant focus...but off-seasons, I thought I could or should be able to give my mind a break...but I just can't LOL.

I don't know if it because the Canadian scare the hell out of me, but I always feel like if I want my place on the podium next year, I have to work harder, eat better, make sure I have control on every aspect of my training&amp; diet...

Nath.

Hi Nath

Thanks for keeping us posted with your schedule.

Sorry for another interrogation but I am just genuinely interested !

BTW - I loved your photos ! You are definitely the best poser on the podium - you present yourself really well.

My questions relates to how you structure your day?

It looks like you do an early morning workout?

How many splits per week? How much cardio and when? Rest days?

Are holding down a full time job as well?

Do companies help you by sponsoring your BB efforts?

BTW - do you rest up a bit in the weekend ?!

Have a great day [img]/forum/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]

Sorry for another interrogation but I am just genuinely interested ! <font color="red"> Always a pleasure to answers your ?? </font>

BTW - I loved your photos ! You are definitely the best poser on the podium - you present yourself really well. <font color="red"> [img]/forum/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img] Thank's again, I've work real hard on the posing last year, my coach gave me good advices and I've check tons of photo (Juliette Bergmann is my all time favorite poser!) One thing I've learned is "not to be scare to take place on stage, be large and show it off!!" LOL </font>

My questions relates to how you structure your day?
It looks like you do an early morning workout?
<font color="red"> Yes, I always workout from 4H30 to 6H15am. Off season I do 30min cardio at night 4xwk, and I trained 4-5 days a week. Offseasons, I adapt my training to my family, precontest it more like the other way around LOL. When precontest I wake up at 4H to get additionnal 30 min cardio in morning and hit another 30-45min at 8h when the kids are in bed. </font>

How many splits per week?
<font color="red">I don't have a fix routine, go mostly by feel, sometimes I start my week with back, others with legs it's always different etc... I work out 4-5days a week, depending of the time I have allowed, I just make sure I hit each bodypart at least once a week...sometime two in off season if I feel a certain bodypart needs more work. </font>
How much cardio and when? <font color="red"> off season 3-4x30min...precontest start at 60minx7time/week increase to 1h30-2H cardio x 7time/week close to contest. </font>

Rest days? <font color="red"> off season...weekend are off...always. Precontest, cardio everyday, training 5xweek </font>

Are holding down a full time job as well? <font color="red">YUP, work 40hr/week, plus the house chore, plus the kids activity and school homework... </font>

Do companies help you by sponsoring your BB efforts? <font color="red"> NOPE, but will be working on this, this year (trying to find someone to sposored me at least for the plane ticket), competing is very, VERY expensive. </font>

BTW - do you rest up a bit in the weekend ?! <font color="red"> Well, if doing laundry, grocerie, meal for the upcoming week and cleaning the house is considered relaxing..yes I am LOL...to answered you question...don't really have the time to relax, but I'm very well organize and I luv' my life, I do take Sunday off wake up a bit later (6Ham) read, enjoy my coffee, stay in my PJ, and enjoy time with the kids and family. </font>

Have a great day [img]/forum/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]

4H30 am...wake up baby! Now the time. The time to get into the donjon and fried those legs [img]/forum/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] . Pick up a sweater, caffeine, water, wash my face and down I go into my basement (I train home).

Stretch and warm up, no music on legs days, breathing will be my music...time is to concentration...let's start this one slowly. 4 set of leg extensions, go for slow reps, go for that pleasant burning sensation....bloods is pumping into my legs...after the fourth set I am now ready for the SQUAT...I luv' to squat! Stretch again, let's start easy and feel the mouvement, go deep, push with heels... 2 set at 115#...now I think, time to get more serious, why not try theses "famous" 20 reps squats...and see.

Okay, I say, why not, I can do it...usually do appx. 140#-160# for 10-12 reps, so let's start this with 140#. 8 reps, breathing is noticeable...10 reps, breathing heavier, 12 reps...ouff!, okay I can do it, need to focus, go deep don't cheat!...15 reps, God give me the strenght, breathing is very heavy, legs are starting to shak, mind is playing game...18..rest and pause at top of the movement, 19 totally gasping for air...okay 20...go down Nath, deeeep!...go up...I said...GO UP!!! God, half way my legs are just like...missing, I hate and luv' when this happens, the fear of falling backward with the bar or getting stuck under it, this push or die feeling, now comes the adrenaline...and there goes number 20!!
I'm totally out of breath, feel sick &amp; dizy but do have this mega smile on my face! I did it...and I like it...after a good 2min break I keep the same weight, hit 12/10/8 and 6+double drop at the end. To finish this in beauty, I've drop the weight to 120# did 4 sets of lunges superset with 4 set of leg extensions (130#)-with last reps on leg ext.done with a static hold.

My legs are fried and I feel a bit sick, but I'm happy, I did my work well, and now can start my day!!

Nath.

Hey thanks for the feedback Nath.

Your schedule inspires me to keep hard at it too.

Currently I am doing 6 days per week cardio and I thought that was tough ! Next time I start to feel sorry for myself, I'll just think of you in your basement !

Good luck in your pursuit of sponsorship as well.
