Bodybuilding Is Like Making Wine

Posted: May 13, 2016 in Uncategorized

When you start bodybuilding, you always need a plan.  You cant just throw poop at a wall and hope something sticks, bodybuilding is a well thought out operation.

Bulking up, dieting, cardio, etc. They all need to be planned out weeks in advance.

But things change….Nothing works out perfectly, and most often, you need to make changes midway into your routine.

It reminds me of making wine.

A couple years  ago I took a wine making course and I remember the teacher showing my how they can make corrections, even after the wine is already in the barrel.

If the p.h. levels were to high or two low, the wine experts would try their best to make slight adjustments to the recipe and correct it midway.

It is the same process with bodybuilding.

Right now, my cardio is doing great. Today I ran 3 miles in 18:40 and it is only early May.

Diet-wise, I am also on point.  Yesterday I weighed in at 157 and that is really light for this time of year.

So where am I slacking? On strength

My shoulder has been killing me for the last several weeks and I haven’t been able to go real heavy.  The lack of heavy lifting is really hurting me in the mass department.

Memorial day weekend is only 3 weeks away, and that is the official start of summer in NYC.

I need to add strength NOW.

Today I stretched out my shoulder for a solid 20 minutes and I was finally able to go slightly heavy in shoulder dumbbells.

For the next several weeks, I have only one goal in mind, ADD POWER.

My diet has been on point, my card is going great, now I just need to add the strength and I am there.
