    NPAA Canadian Championship Prep - 1 day out
    AM Walk

    30 min

    I completed my full carb fill-up plan as prescribed and I weighed in at 175 lbs bang on. I had to take a 20 min and 10 min salt bath at 3 pm, but that was nothing.

    I'm sitting in my hotel room at night, after my first coat of spray tan. I bought a dozen donuts to share backstage after the show. I cannot possibly wait to step on stage!!!! 4:30 tomorrow pm is Men's Physique (Awards at 6:30), and 7:20pm is bodybuilding (Awards at 8:30). IF, by any chance, I win Bodybuilding, the IPE pro bodybuilding is at 9:30 pm.

    I'm going to miss the UFC 217 which SUCKS, but hopefully it's worth the sacrifice. After the show, it's straight to Husky to wash off the spray tan, and then drive back to Edmonton to go out for my birthday.

    I found out last minute I had to pick a song for my BB routine. I picked this one, which should get the crowd pumping:

    Show Recap
    I won the show; got my IPE Pro Card by placing first in the Men's Physique division! I cannot explain how much this means to me. I thought this was going to be a make it or break it situation on my fitness career simply because I put so much time, energy, and money into this prep that I wondered if it all made sense. On the one side, I love training, and I feel like I belong in Men's Physique, but on the other side, a valid objective question is to wonder whether all the input is worth the output.

    They confirmed at the athlete's meeting that I would be on the next cover, and I had 119 heads turn around to look at me haha. That was both funny and awesome.

    Natural Physique/Bodybuilding
    I'll provide a bit of background about what it means because I can't quite say that Natural Bodybuilding is a mainstream sport yet.
    • NPAA is the amateur division of the IPE in Canada. This mean that achieving the NPAA Elite Pro status is the highest level of amateur natural bodybuilding in Canada.
    • IPE used to be called IFPA.
    • IPE is, as far as I know, the biggest north american natural federation. They have high level athletes such as the 3dmj guys, and Jared from RP.
    To put things in perspective, I cannot compete in natural Men's Physique in Canada anymore. I have to go down in the US because IPE never had a Men's Physique competition in Canada so far. I'm sure they will, and I'm sure it will be super competitive. I'm certainly not the only one in this position, and I'm sure guys will come out of "breaks" to compete in Canada if the opportunity is there.

    IPE had their very first Canadian bodybuilding show tonight. If I placed first in the NPAA Elite Pro Bodybuilding, I would have been able to move to the IPE Pro Bodybuilding show later that night; I placed third out of five. Bodybuilding was a lot of fun, and I'm actually glad I gave it a shot. I had several positive comments about my posing, although size was a weakness... obviously!

    What's Next
    I have a week off, and I can't remember the last time I had a week off. My goal is to enter a strength phase until Christmas and not binge eat to skyrocket my bodyweight. I want to take a competing break next year and focus on putting on quality lean mass.

    Deadlift
    Is it even possible to hit a 500 lbs deadlift by Christmas? I'm looking for a deadlifting program, whether it is 2 or 3 times a week for 4-8 weeks.
    I think I'll jump on Cube Predator for Bench and focus on my deadlift the rest of the time.

    Thanks @frystyle for reading; I'm glad to hear some feedback on my log. I hope it inspires at least two people to keep going in their journey. I cannot explain how much this log means to me. It keeps me accountable beyond belief. I don't lie in my log. If the plan is as follow

    Week 1 - Bench 3 x 10 x 225
    Week 2 - Bench 4 x 10 x 225
    Week 3 - Bench 5 x 10 x 235

    And I end up doing

    Week 1 - Bench 3 x 10 x 225
    Week 2 - Bench 4 x 10 x 225
    Week 3 - Bench 5 x 10 x 225

    I know damn well the third week didn't go as planned, but I'll write it as is. I feel bad about not hitting the numbers I should, but I don't tweak my log to look good. I'm honest in my log, even with the music I post. If, on that day, it's a house music song, or a pop song, or a black metal song that drove me to take it to the next level, I'll post it. If I skip a workout, I don't log.


    TL;DR:
    I won my show, I'm focusing on the DL competition until Christmas, I love my log, and I'm not competing next year.

    This album kept me alive the past few days, but especially this song:

    Fuck yeah!

    Sherdog logs ... love mine too. Writing everything down, even if it's nothing more than the workout helps so much.

    Decided to deload this week because I'm too beat up. Went full body to circulate the junk food I had in the past two days. I was 183 lbs post-gym, which is as high as I told myself I'd go.

    It's quite the trip to drive through the rocky mountains, in the winter, while blasting Amon Amarth. The landscape is breath-taking to begin with, AA just adds to the epicness and I get absolutely immersed in the moment.

    Spent a few days in Jasper, it was amazing, but I think I'm sick as I have a permanent headache and zero energy whatsoever.

    I decided to run a double cycle of 5/3/1 until Christmas. I looked around for a deadlift program and didn't find anything appealing. Plus, I figured sticking to a basic all around strength program is probably much better than running an exotic program that leads to temporary gains. I'll run the Simplest Strength version, 4 days a week, with a strength focus on my main assistance. I'll add a 5th day for the fluff.

    Taking the next two days off, and starting strong on Monday with my first 5/3/1 meso and right back into my diet. Weight is a bit higher than I'd like, but it's nothing alarming. A couple weeks on a structured diet and I'll be rigth back in the low 180s.

    I'm hiring a coach to program both my training and diet starting January 1st. I want to dedicate myself to bringing my best physique yet towards the end of 2018. I'll do a clean bulk and put some size on. I'm banking on the fact that the NPAA Canadian Classic 2018, held on November 3rd, will have an IPE Pro division in it. If not, I'll have to pick a show down in the US, or be content with being in the best shape of my life to kick my 30th birthday in Vegas.
