    Of course I enjoy lifting--I love it--but I've only had one week off from lifting in almost a year, and I haven't skipped a single workout in that time. As you can only imagine (*zing* :D), I'm feeling a little burned out from training right now. A three-day split this summer will help ensure that I continue to love lifting. :)

    Hey John you eat a lot of egg whites in your diet correct? Do you buy the egg whites already seperated from the yolk in containers or do you just buy dozens of eggs and do it yourself?

    Thanks, those are expensive online, is that where you get them or at your local food store?

    I don't think I would trust buying eggs online...I've seen them in the grocery store for ~$2 a carton.

    I like the idea of a three day split for you, John, but I'm wondering what kind of exercises you are going to use for:

    Monday -- Chest & Lateral Raises
    Wednesday -- Legs
    Friday -- Back, traps, and rear delts

    If you're going to conventional deadlift, etc. on back day, I would reorder:

    Monday -- Back, traps, and rear delts
    Wednesday -- Chest & Lateral Raises
    Friday -- Legs

    This gives priority to your back musculature (where you have probably the most work to do as far as balance goes) and the least priority to legs where you already excel. Moreover, this splits deadlifts (assuming you'll be doing them on back day still) and squats in order to give you and, specifically, your lower back the most recovery between workouts, which will help keep you feeling fresh and free from injury.

    Excellent points, Chico. I agree with your observations, and will swap those days as you've suggested.

    I appreciate the astute input! :)

    "I'm pretty sure that by the end of this cut I will BE a cod fish."

    From Wikipedia:

    The Atlantic cod has two distinct color phases, gray-green and reddish brown. Its average weight is 10 to 25 lb (4.5—11.3 kg), but specimens weighing up to 200 lb (90 kg) have been recorded.

    Although I can not confirm it, I heard somewhere that Udo's Choice did not pass independent testing on confirming the stated contents as stated by the manufacturer.

    Does anyone have consumerlabs test results or similar?

    Again, this is third party info on my part - do not take it as fact please.

    Hi John,

    I just stopped in as I wanted to see how you were training these days as I think it's time I developed a new program. First off though, let me say that the latest pics of you are incredible! You look great, well done, your dedication and results are inspiring.

    I like the look of your latest training plan and think I will follow the principles of it for a while too. I like the the variable reps in each set. I think that will be a nice variation for me. I have one question: Do you keep the weight the same for all sets or increase or decrease it?

    [3 exercises per body part, except biceps, calves & triceps which will be 2 exercises per body part (calves will be worked twice per week).
    3 sets per exercise.
    First three sets of bodypart: 5-7 reps.
    Second three sets of bodypart: 10-12 reps.
    Final 3 sets of bodypart: 12-16 reps.]

    Thanks John.

    Take care and... well... um... keep doing what you are doing I guess!?!

    Yep, I've heard nothing but good about Udo's, so unless someone has something concrete to offer I'm not put any stock in 3rd party rumors and will continue to use the product.


    Thank you. :)

    The weights change from one exercise to the next, but I keep the same weight for all sets of a particular exercise. I chose weights that allow me to do the targeted rep range while still remaining very challenging.

    I like cod but the thought of having it for breakfast gives me the puke shivers. How do you prepare the cod?

    I douse it with lemon juice, put a little salt and a lot of pepper on it, wrap it in a foil pouch and bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes (depending on thickness).

    In honor of leg day I snapped a couple pictures of my quads before my workout.

    I'm 7.9% body fat in these pictures. I'm starting to see some separation. By the time I hit 6% body fat they should be etched in pretty well.

    They are boxers. I pulled them up so, you know, my quads would show. But thank you.
