Congratulations on making it through Week 10 of Gethin's Muscle-Building Trainer! That was most likely your toughest and most intense week yet, but don't get complacent. The final two weeks aren't going to be any easier. In fact, with only two weeks left, it's time to really push your training into high gear!
Giant sets are on the menu today. Not only will you be hitting some seriously hard DTP set and rep schemes, you'll be going through three exercises back-to-back-to-back without rest. It's going to take a lot of mental strength to get through this. Your body can do it; it's your mind that you'll have to harness.

- On your first giant set, you'll be targeting your quads, so put your feet on the bottom portion of the platform with your legs closer together during the leg press and hack squat.
- The second giant set is reserved for your hamstrings. To target them, move your feet to the top portion of the platform, legs wide, and push through your heels when you're doing the leg press and hack squat.

I’m not smart enough to be cruel. The smart ones always keep their secrets and kill you before trying to give you the kiss of life. All the while they are bleeding me, they try to create a need for me. I am weak but I am always on the lookout to get stronger. After a while, the hatred is easy and the kindness gets killed out of me. They try to feed me but really it’s a dirty underhanded trick. I wont let anyone in here because its always easier to close the door than to keep it open. I am learning a lot this year but the self-imposed blindness becomes a painful lesson to be taught. I’m always harder on myself, and that’s why I am no longer scared of anything or anyone. All the **** people can say to me now is so weak compared to the pressure I punish upon myself. I don’t think there is a skeleton as fragile as mine out of the gym and as strong within it. Its versatility is unexpected and always surprises me. I wish someone could wrap theirs around mine to neutralize it. I wish I could just be. I want to breathe. I want to sleep. I want to feel wanted. But words dont cut it, I need to feel it. If I was able remove the horror from me, I don’t know if I could do what I do. I wouldn’t be filming this series and I wouldn’t be writing this on a public domain. My hardened resolve puts me here. I need violence to hold me to sleep. The sedation and numbness of an average life keeps me awake at night. I have a large void to rent inside of me that can’t be controlled, because it will only abuse.
I have two weeks of this Bodybuilding.com video trainer left to film. I had a complete mix of emotions for the first time today. I was completing my 8th Giant Set which involved leg extensions, leg presses and hack squats all at 25 reps each with no rest. I began to laugh I was in so much pain. I almost began to cry but I wasn’t sad. I wanted to sleep although I wasn’t tired. Then I had to run to the toilet to be sick again. I got cold and had head rushes on loop but I was sat down.
I have so much anger, hatred, motivation and urgency screaming within me now I feel like tearing through my skin, breaking normality and chewing through humanity to finally show the world the Animal and Machine. I’m peaking now. I’m having a hard time controlling myself. I pray that my human body will keep up with the Animalistic instinct and the Machines materialization. It feels like my spine it changing shape. I see people outside who want to take a picture with me but its becoming really hard. They are nice people and they all mean well but its becoming tough to break out of the character needed to break the last few barriers. I only have one chance. My reclusiveness is the only thing I can rely on to get me there now. Everything else is either unpredictable or in my way. I have had lose myself in this to deliver. I’ve forgotten my face and I don’t listen to anyone anymore except my body. Everything else can remain broken like my reflection. I throw stones at it if I see weakness and I spit at it if I feel doubt. I wonder if this is what happens when you have felt your dreams destroyed and then rubbed in your face. I guess it’s the feeling you get when you have been voluntary chased, cornered and then pulled apart at the limbs. Its okay. I always end up walking away into a vacuum of my own company. Its where I grow and feed so others cant grow and feed from me. Time always scars my thoughts so I don’t think about the past. The less people I allow in my head, the less scars.
All that is important now are these two weeks. Two ****ing weeks left to deliver. I could’ve easily been swept under the rug considering all the amazing talent featured on Bodybuildling.com but they have never turned their back on me. I plan to prove my worth to them and every viewer, and I will not let 1% be left to chance. This is not a show. This is me bleeding my existence into every rep to pave a way that hasn’t been seen or touched. I am bringing the experience into reality for everyone to taste, fear, experience and face it himself or herself. They are all that matters now. I need to remain intact for them. I cant let them down. I wont.
