A Day In The Life Of A Hardcore Bodybuilder!

Find out what a typical day is like for a hardcore bodybuilder. Good luck to whoever attempts this training regimen. You will need it!
What does my typical day look like? For starters, I get up at 6 a.m. and eat my first meal of the day. Then I work my hams, abs and calves. This first session is one of two on the third training day of my cycle. The weights and reps are typical of the way I train on a regular basis. This style has come into place over the years of training and trial and error.

It emphasizes heavy poundages combined with high repetitions in a deliberate and controlled manner. Let me assure you, it's not for the faint of heart ... The second session will follow in the evening, and on this day, it's chest by itself. Good luck to who ever attempts this training regimen. You will need it.

Through the rest of the day, I'll eat meal 2, 3 and 4. After meal 4, I hit my second training session, followed by meals 6 and 7. Regarding my training, all sets are to my own natural muscular failure. I have no training partner and I hate using spotters. I need to get myself in a heightened state of awareness, and people milling around me make that difficult.

When you get to a certain point, you don't need some a-hole wearing genie pants standing over you screaming, "One more rep!" If you do, it's time for some serious reflection about what you hope to accomplish in this sport. You're born alone, you're onstage alone, and you're probably gonna die alone, so you might as well train alone. In my mind, some things in this life you gotta do for yourself and by yourself. Chest is no different. Here it is:

Another thing I want to stress is that I even now hesitate to put my own numbers in an article because too many people get caught up in numbers. Realize this: without an extreme muscular contraction (a hypercontraction) where you feel every fiber doing the work to achieve the desired effect, then you are absolutely wasting your time. Believe that. On a competition stage, no judge will ever ask you how much you bench or squat.

Having said that, anyone who knows me knows the personal pride I take in my own strength. For me it is one of the hallmarks of a dedicated warrior, one who possesses all the tools to go out and build a powerful diesel-truck, a machine-like body. And he has all the scars, rewards, trophies and pride that come with that kind of sacrifice.

Above I listed 26 sets and countless reps that make up just one training session for me. Don't get discouraged. Don't feel bad for me, cause the only thing that makes me feel alive is the struggle. I'm right where I need to be. I'm on point, right the f**k where I belong, in the sh!t, getting huge.
