    Soccerdad's Journey to 2nd NPC Masters Physique Show (Oct 12th)- Diet & Training Log

    Soccerdad's Journey to 2nd NPC Physique Masters Show (Oct 12th)- Diet, Training Log & Life Experiences

    I WANT THIS JOURNAL TO BE USEFUL, INSPIRATIONAL AND HELPFUL TO YOU SO ANYTHING YOU WANT ME TO ADD LET ME KNOW. I WON'T BE PUBLISHING MY WORKOUT IN DETAIL BECAUSE I HIRED A COACH AND I AGREED I WOULD NOT PUBLISH ALL THE DETAIL ON IT.

    Goal

    I want to get my pro card in 2014. I will be competing on October 12th at the NPC Texas Bodybuilding, Physique, Fitness, Figure & Bikini Championships / Houston Pro Show National Qualifier / IFBB Pro Show. I have 10 weeks to get ready. Even though I qualified for a national show at the Branch Warren, I might have to do so again if I compete in a National Show at end of July of 2014 at the Masters National Championships in Pittsburgh.

    Background

    I am a 42 year old (43 in August) marketing director for a health care company that got out of shape, got depressed and had a low energy level. I came from an athletic background (played division 1 soccer ) but did not make fitness/health my priority when I took an 8-6 job. My excuse is I traveled a lot and I worked too many hours to put fitness/health as a priority. After my father's health started to deteriorate, I analyzed my own life. I thought if I continue to do what I am doing, I would not be living a good quality of life in my future years enjoyed my kids and someday grand kids. I decided last year to enter the 2012 Dymatize Elite Ambition 12 week challenge as a motivation to get back into shape. I actually won the contest which shocked me. I actually thought there were a lot of better transformations than me but it was a very humbling proud moment and really helped me get where I am today (read the detailed story and my plan here:

    Chad Jackson Wins 2012 Dymatize Elite Ambition Challenge! http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/chad...challenge.html


    12 WEEK TRANSFORMATION IN THIS PHOTO



    Just kept going and since I was getting in good shape I decided to do a photo shoot just so I could go after something. Somebody told me about the Branch Warren Classic and 6 weeks ago I decided to enter it. I entered the Men's Masters Physique class. If you would have told me 2 months ago I was going to enter a men's physique contest, I would have thought you were crazy. I did it and ended up 2nd in my class. The crazy thing is after I got second place, some trainer told me backstage that I qualified for nationals and can try to win my pro card within 1 year. It has been a crazy few weeks but reflecting back on it all this week on vacation it has been a great ride.

    The best part about it is knowing I did this "drug free" (no anabolics, pro-hormones, etc). I also can't believe how many messages I have gotten around the world telling me that I have encouraged them to get into better shape or have a goal of competing in a show. I have loved helping people through the whole journey. It has been fun and the journey will continue as I prepare to get my pro card.


    Here are a few pics from the contest. I have a lot more in my profile. I also have a good timeline of photos from April of last year until now:

    7/29/13-- Very excited, motivated and BUSY

    7/29/13-- Very excited, motivated and BUSY

    This is my first day of working out on a new workout plan and being stricter on my diet. I will need to build some more muscle in my upper chest and also get some wider lats during this preparation for the October show. Can a 42 year old man build muscle in 10 weeks? We will surely find out.

    I got my new diet and workout last week and started executing on it today. I will be hitting all bodyparts (except legs) 2 times per week. (Layne Norton believes in hitting the body more than once per week -- http://www.simplyshredded.com/mega-f...ated-2011.html ) My training days will be Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday. I will actually have 2 days off without cardio. As I get closer to the contest I will add cardio back in. My macros on workout days like today are 250 protein/250 carbs/ 75 fat. I am eating 2,675 calories on workout days and 2,415 on non-workout days. Fiber is a very important part also and I will try to hit 30 g per day.

    Workout:

    Had a great workout today but only hit 2 sets of each exercise (chest and tris-- total of 10 sets 4-8 reps of each exercise). Will be increasing volume next week. Just trying to get back into it.

    Before workout (been doing this for 6 months)
    1 cup of coffee (200 mg caffeine)
    20 g of BCAA's w quart of water
    6 proteolytic enzyme pills on empty stomach (been trying this out for the past 6 weeks and my left shoulder is feeling a lot better after a year of pain. The only thing I have changed is this so I really believe it is working.)

    Right after workout
    1 cup of coffee with 5 g of creatine mixed in with 5 g of BCAA’s

    Meal 1 (after workout)
    2 eggs and 1 Cup Egg Whites
    4 slices of Ezekiel bread
    Supplements after meal 1
    2,000 mg Vitamin C, Multi-Vitamins, Vitamin D 4,000 IU (am going to increase this), Glucosamine Chondroiton, Zinc, and 2,000 mg Omega 3 Fish Oil

    Meal 2
    8 oz Chicken
    3 Cups raw broccoli/cauliflower
    1.5 cups of Cheerios

    Meal 3
    6 oz lean ground turkey
    1 1/2 cups green beans
    20 g of almonds (16 almonds)
    1 slice of Ezekiel Bread

    Meal 4
    8 oz of filet mignon
    1 cup of mixed vegetables
    1/2 cup of potatoes


    Meal 5
    2 scoops of protein
    3/4 cup of oatmeal
    1 cup of almond milk

    Approximate Calories: 2,675
    Carbs: 250 g
    Protein: 250 g
    Fats: 75 g


    I had a very busy day today. Was at a convention all day and had to do a dinner meeting. Got home at 9:30 pm. I am pretty tired and ready to go to sleep but wanted to make sure to post the blog.

    I posted this on my Facebook page but a lot of people ask me how I did my transformation. This quote sums it up:

    "Success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day in and day out." - Robert Collier

    There really is no "magic" or any supplement that can do it. It is just putting in the work (diet and working out) day in and day out.

    7/30/13—2nd Day Back and Biceps today

    I am posting before going to bed. This is my 2nd day back working out. I am not too sore but my coach only had me doing 10 sets yesterday so just easing my way into into it this week. I have a crazy week. Meetings from 7 am -10 pm at Monday through Thursday. I have all of my meals prepared but I will be eating out for 3 nights this week. Hope to be able to control the calories for dinner.
    I did back today early in the morning and learned some things. I have been seeing a guy in the gym that is in great shape (thought he might have competed in bodybuildling). Chris came up to me today and introduced himself to me and said he heard I did really well in my first physique competition. I think he learned it from bodybuilding.com. Chris is doing his masters in kinesiology and the gym is kind of his “lab.” I told him I needed to develop my upper chest more for the next competition. He told me that he made incredible progress on his chest implementing some negatives into his chest routine. He gave me the details and I am going to put it into my workout. I told him I don’t believe in “coincidences.”

    Workout:

    Had a very good workout today but only hit 2 sets of each exercise (back and tris-- total of 10 sets 4-8 reps of each exercise). Will be increasing volume next week. Coach put me on a plan that will just get me back into things without getting me too sore.

    Before workout (been doing this for 6 months)
    1 cup of coffee (200 mg caffeine)
    20 g of BCAA's w quart of water
    6 proteolytic enzyme pills on empty stomach (been trying this out for the past 6 weeks and my left shoulder is feeling a lot better after a year of pain. The only thing I have changed is this so I really believe it is working.)

    Right after workout
    1 cup of coffee with 5 g of creatine mixed in with 5 g of BCAA’s

    Meal 1 (after workout)
    2 eggs and 1 Cup Egg Whites
    4 slices of Ezekiel bread
    Supplements after meal 1
    2,000 mg Vitamin C, Multi-Vitamins, Vitamin D 4,000 IU (am going to increase this), Glucosamine Chondroiton, Zinc, and 2,000 mg Omega 3 Fish Oil

    Meal 2
    8 oz Chicken
    3 Cups raw broccoli/cauliflower
    20 g of almonds (16 almonds)
    Meal 3
    Skipped Meal to eat dinner (we will see how this works)

    Meal 4--Ate out at Brennan's Houston (same owner as Brennan's New Orleans)
    8 oz of salmon
    2 cups of mixed vegetables
    1/2 cup of grits
    1/2 cup of okra with tomatoes


    Meal 5
    6 oz lean ground turkey
    1 1/2 cups green beans
    1 tbsp Almond butter
    1 1/2 cups of cheerios

    Approximate Calories: 2,675
    Carbs: 250 g
    Protein: 250 g
    Fats: 75 g


    My President and VP of Sales found out about my transformation and contest today. It was fun sharing about the transformation and the experience. I am definitely “outed” at work and I am glad. I am sure a lot of other people will find out soon. At least I have a “story” (remember people love stories). I hope to help some people at work get inspired and make their own transformations. It is interesting how it catches on.

    I posted this on my Facebook page ( www.facebook.com/chadjacksonfitness ) today. This is so TRUE! Don't over complicate things.

    7/31/13—Middle of the week rest day

    This was a rest day for me. I don't know when the last time I took a day off during the week. I still have about 9 weeks until the physique competition and will not be implementing cardio into my workout this week. My metabolism is cranking right now. I will be doing chest again tomorrow. It will interesting to see how my body reacts to working a bodypart 2 times per week. I shouldn't be too tired this week with only 10 total sets. One thing the rest day has done has made me really want to go into the gym tomorrow. Excited (weird--really never felt like this before)

    Workout:

    REST DAY-- No weights or cardio

    20 g of BCAA's w quart of water

    Meal 1 (after workout)
    2 eggs and 1 Cup Egg Whites
    3 slices of Ezekiel bread
    Supplements after meal 1

    I posted this on my Facebook page ( www.facebook.com/chadjacksonfitness ) today. This is so TRUE!

    This one really hit home today. This is a great Jesus is Calling. Really good one if you are feeling "flustered or frazzled" today.

    Harl, thank you. You have had some kinds of transformation yourself. Used to see some pics and thought it was not possible without some help (steroids or hormones) but after doing it myself drug free, it can be done. I have said this before, in order to make a transformation like myself in 16 months, 10 year of lifting before my transformation helped a lot. Muscle memory is real and it helps to have a base of training but anyone can make a transformation.

    8/1/13—Chest, shoulders and tris for 2nd day this week[

    8/1/13—Chest, shoulders and tris for 2nd day this week

    It was a crazy week but the craziness is starting to wind down. My work schedule was 7 am - 10 pm Monday - Thursday with a lot of meetings. This was not in the office but in a big convention center. Lots of back to back meetings in different locations. I really didn't have control over my schedule and that is a mistake. I didn't do a great job planning but the good thing is I really didn't blow my diet. In fact, I ended up losing weight so probably didn't eat enough. For weeks like this, you really have to plan out your day. I cooked my meals for the week but didn't really plan my days.

    I had some early meetings today so waited to workout later this afternoon. Got with all high school kids trying to get buff. You don't see too many of these guys at 5 am in the morning


    Workout:
    Before workout today I did use a pre-workout since I was so tired. I used Bodybuilding.com's brand Scream. I like it. It doesn't make me jittery during my workouts and I don't have a hard crash hours later. For how tired I was, I had a very intense workout.
    I did 12 sets of chest , 8 set s of shoulders and 4 sets of triceps (8-12 rep range). I told some of you I would be implementing some “negatives” into my workout. I did 4-6 negatives after my set with incline dumbbell presses and decline dumbbell presses. Really focused on working on the chest during these sets. It will be interesting to see if I see any difference in my chest in mid – September.
    Everyone asks me how much cardio I am doing. I am doing NO CARDIO right now. This sums it up:


    Before workout
    20 g of BCAA's w quart of water

    Right after workout
    1 cup of grape juice with 5 g of creatine. I also had 5 g of BCAA’s in water (don't usually do grape juice. Usually mix it in coffee)

    Meal 1
    2 eggs and 1 Cup Egg Whites
    1 cup of oatmeal
    Supplements after meal 1
    2,000 mg Vitamin C, Multi-Vitamins, Vitamin D 4,000 IU (am going to increase this), Glucosamine Chondroiton, Zinc, and 2,000 mg Omega 3 Fish Oil

    Meal 2
    8 oz Chicken
    3 Cups raw broccoli/cauliflower
    20 g of almonds (16 almonds)

    Meal 3
    6 oz lean ground turkey
    1 1/2 cups green beans
    1 tbsp Almond butter
    1 1/2 cups of cheerios

    Meal 4
    6 oz of lean roast
    1 whole potato with butter
    1 cup of broccoli

    Meal 5
    2 scoop of Protogen ( whey, casein, milk protein, egg albumin)
    1 cup of oatmeal
    1 cup of almond milk
    Approximate Calories: 2,675
    Carbs: 250 g
    Protein: 250 g
    Fats: 75 g


    Here is a picture of me after running back from the gym in 10 degree heat (actually that was pretty dumb).

    I am 10 weeks out from the show. Still see abs but not as quite defined. It will be interesting when I will have to go on a calorie deficit diet again.

    8/2/13—Back, biceps and abs for 2nd day this week

    Wow, am I glad it is Friday! I have been able to sleep less when I have been in shape but I did not get enough sleep this week. I will attempt to catch up tonight and tomorrow night. I worked out very early this morning and attempted to try to catch up from being out of the office all week. Still could not get my head around everything I needed to do today.

    Workout:
    Incredible sunrise today outside the gym. Just thanked God for the day but my attitude was not great today. I will see if some sleep should help that.
    I did 12 sets of back, 8 set s of biceps and 4 sets of abs (12-15 rep range). I told some of you I would be implementing some “negatives” into my workout. I did 4-6 negatives after my set with lat pulls and seated rows. Really focused on width for back.
    I am seeing a lot of veins in my arms during my workouts (more than I have ever seen). I am still fairly lean but more carbs are making them “pop.” If I don’t have any setbacks I should bring a good package to the stage in October.
    Before workout (been doing this for 6 months)
    1 cup of coffee (200 mg caffeine)
    20 g of BCAA's w quart of water
    6 proteolytic enzyme pills on empty stomach (been trying this out for the past 6 weeks and my left shoulder is feeling a lot better after a year of pain. The only thing I have changed is this so I really believe it is working.)

    Right after workout
    1 cup of coffee with 5 g of creatine mixed in with 5 g of BCAA’s

    Meal 1 (after workout)
    2 eggs and 1 Cup Egg Whites
    4 slices of Ezekiel bread
    Supplements after meal 1
    2,000 mg Vitamin C, Multi-Vitamins, Vitamin D 4,000 IU (am going to increase this), Glucosamine Chondroiton, Zinc, and 2,000 mg Omega 3 Fish Oil
    Here is what it looked like.


    I bought a bunch of Muscle Egg (liquid flavored eggs - http://www.muscleegg.com/ ) and they are very tasty. You can drink them (which is easy when you are in a hurry) or cook them. I cooked them today which would have tasted great but it is kind of different eating chocolate mint egg whites on Ezekiel bread. It is not bad, but would rather have the eggs plain for this sandwich (which I love!)
    Meal 2
    8 oz Chicken
    3 Cups raw broccoli/cauliflower
    20 g of almonds (16 almonds)
    Meal 3
    Skipped Meal to eat dinner (we will see how this works)

    [b]Meal 4[b]
    3 Tacos with guacamole
    ˝ cup of black beans
    12 Chips
    Meal 5
    3 scoop of Protgen Protein
    1 cup of almond milk
    1 cup of oatmeal
    Approximate Calories: 2,800
    Carbs: 250 g
    Protein: 275 g
    Fats: 75 g

    I still can’t believe how good my shoulder feels. I remember when I had warm up for 15 minutes and it would still hurt. All I can say is ‘proteolytic enzymes.’ Going to bed in 20 minutes. Will be reading Jesus is Calling before I go to bed and hopefully renew my relationship with God today who got forgotten in the “busyness of life.” Good night!
