My first post in here.. And Im going to stay in here, really nice log bro
that back pics really shows ur genetics bro. u got what it takes to make it far as ive said, u got genetics, work ethich and knowledge. thats what u need to make it far in this sport. i would really love to see more sessions but i understand if ure busy.
as for those discrediting u and saying ure on something, they are loosers, pathetic, envious, simple minded people who needs to blame ur progress on roids just because they dont have what it takes to make it themselves. there will always be those people who doesent want it bad enough and who feel the need to bring down others. the only thing to do is ignore them, and keep pushing forward.
Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.
In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.
It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
Not to over emphasize achievement, but I have no genetics. Everything I built was from scratch. I weighed a whopping 88-91 lbs, freshman year of highschool. I started "lifting" beginning of sophomore year. Again not to sound egotistical in the least bit, because I'm quite the opposite, very modest, but genetics are nothing in my family.
Thanks for the motivation, and I couldn't agree more with ya

Everything looks good steve, i know hard it is to get that workout session in while doing soccer full-time, i once were a soccer player so i know how much times goes into that. your knowledge is amazing for being 16, like we say nutrition is so importand for the body. i know alot of soccer players and nobody did train really often all they did was bench press and db curls, that the basic what they do. i think when you give up the soccer, you´ll be a succesful bodybuilder if you choose to become one, meaning competing. also look really big for a 16 yr old
I haven't trained in 2 weeks. I'm a starter on varsity this year I really wanna focus on my game. Trust me when I get back, it's game time.
Thank you maxmonzter! I'm trying to be a well rounded kid, not just a bodybuilder. I'm majoring in biochem in college so I plan to stick with it my entire life. I'm focusing on doing well in school, maintaining starting center-mid pos for varsity and keeping my size I have. All this plus my girl and friends.
Thanks for all the support and sorry for no sessions!
Updates! Some good and bad news.
First, bad news;
I had gotten back from the doctor yesterday and I was told that my severe acute shin splints have progressed into stress fractures. If I continued to play, I would have needed a rod placed in my leg for them to heal. This puts me out of the season, and maybe even next season. Fucking sucks, last year I was not a starter on varsity, and this year I get injured for good.
My coach, when I got back from my first injury, had me do ungodly amounts of fitness to get back into shape. Example of 1session:
Magic Squares (sprint 1 side of the field, jog 1, sprint 2, job 2, sprint 3, jog 4, whole field, etc).
10 laps around track, in 15 minutes.
5 laps around soccer field, in 7 minutes.
4 min of suicides.
The good news;
I'm in the gym again! Diet is back on heavy and everything is where it's at during the summer! Just purchased creatine monohydrate, ON whey and BCAA's. Also have straight dextrose. I have no other choice, so it's time to get serious and do damage now.
No deadlifts. No legs. And little heavy-load, standing exercises.
Day 1: Chest
Day 2: Back
Day 3: OFF
Day 4: Shoulders
Day 5: Arms
Simple and works perfectly for me, better than frequency based program. My weights are ganna be down but no sweat I'll get 'em back.
So, here we go!! :)
