Bulk Up Season Is Officially Over. Time To Get Ripped…

I am proud to announce that my bulk up season is officially over.

Although I still plan on pigging out slightly in the next couple weeks, especially during the Super Bowl, I am going to start adding more cardio to my routine and eating cleaner.

So how did my bulk up go this year?  GREAT.

Basically, I was squatting and deadlifting about 30 lbs heavier than last season and I also weighed 6 lbs lighter.

Last season I went up to 186 lb’s in body weight, this year I maxed out at 180.

One of the main issues I had this year, is that I don’t have a spotter.  I refuse to max out in squats and especially the bench press, without a spotter.  And it also helps to use the same person week after week.

Unfortunately, almost all of my training partners have dropped out over the years.

I have also decided to start my cardio earlier this year.  In the past, I have let my bulk up extend to either late February or even St. Patrick’s Day, but now I feel that it is too late in the season.

The last two years I was starting to peak in early September, instead of the middle of the summer.  By starting a lot earlier, I think I should be able to get cut earlier in the year and look great for Memorial Day weekend and July 4th.

I also don’t feel very healthy when I go over 180 lbs.  I am only 5’7-5’8 and in the last couple weeks I noticed that I was running out of breath from just climbing up stairs.

It can’t be too healthy to stay overweight for a long period of time and that is another reason why I wan’t to cut down on my bulk time.

With that being said, if your bulk time is short, you need to kill it.

Heavy lifting with no excuses.

Going to do my first run in 4 and 1/2 months today, wish me luck.
