Marc Lobliner's Bodybuilding Journey - Contest Prep: Bigger And Better!

Derek and I hit chest and triceps and took 1 serving of Scivation vasoXplode preworkout. The pumps were UNREAL. We even took pics! Here is my latest journal entry listing detailed supplementation, diet and training split for major gains!

The Arnold Classic was one heck of a time! We did not have our own booth, but passed out Dialene 4 samples at the expo. Derek Charlebois, Layne Norton and I were on hand to speak to our customers and the best part is we even got to train together!

When business was done, training began. So while other companies went out after the show and got drunk, all we had is our Purple Drank... Xtend!

The first night, Derek and I hit chest and triceps and took 1 serving of Scivation vasoXplode preworkout. The pumps were UNREAL. We even took pics - it was insane! The next night, we did back and then Layne and I hit some legs on Saturday night. We were all blown away by what vasoXplode provided - insane pumps, bulging veins and incredible energy.

My training split has changed again out of boredom mostly. I tend to switch things up often. Here is my workout. I usually do high volume, low reps and LOTS of sets. To be honest, I have increased training due to how much I love it now.


Cardio Has Left The Building

It gets done, but only 3-4 times per week at night. My traveling has been kicking my glutes. Thus, since the weather is nice, I have been walking my dogs when not traveling after putting Kami to bed. Here is my new schedule when not on the road, although I have been gone every week this month.

  • 4:00 am: Wake Up
  • 4:00-5:00 am: Emails
  • 5:15-6:30 am: Gym
  • 7:00 am until 6:00 pm: Office
  • 6:00 pm: Kami time
  • 7:00 pm: Dog walk

Then I do what needs done in the house and work for 2-3 more hours.


The Diet

I am leaner than I was last installment! I have been experimenting with a plan that Derek and I talked about and it has been working well. It involves a little supplement magic.

My new experiment was spawned by my hero and mentor, Jim Stoppani, PhD, Science Editor for Muscle & Fitness and FLEX magazines. He is HUGE on ALCAR intake and has been researching Carnitine intake and insulin. It turns out that Carnitine intake into the muscle is dependent on insulin, something Chuck has been saying for a long time. His recommendation is the following:

Pre & Post Workout:

Alcalean

  • 3 grams Alcalean
  • 600mg Pure ALA
  • Fast Carbs (weight and bodytype dependent)
  • 20-40g Substance WPI
  • 2 scoops Xtend

I have modified this to fit Scivation's diet theories to stay lean and gain mass. Here is what I will do:

Pre Workout:

vasoXplode

Post Workout:

This gives me a whopping dose of ALCAR and the BCAA and whey will cause a nice, acute insulin response rather than a biphasic response as elicited by fast carbs. I feel that this will help enhance the uptake of the Carnitine and help me stay leaner than if I were to have carbs.

In addition to that, my diet has remained pretty constant with a nice cheat meal on the weekend and the rest of my meals comprised of veggies, protein and fats. Kind of like below...

Daily Diet:

    Meal 1:

    • 2 scoop SUBSTANCE Protein Powder + 10g Glutamine
    • 2 tbsp peanut butter
      MADE INTO SLUDGE!
    • 42g protein, 15g fat, 0g carbs

    Meal 2:

    • 2 scoop SUBSTANCE Protein Powder + 10g Glutamine
    • 2 tbsp peanut butter
      MADE INTO SLUDGE!
    • 6.5 oz PEELED ruby red grapefruit - splenda packets can be used to sweeten if desired
    • 44g protein, 15g fat, 15g carbs

    Meal 3:

    • 6 oz Chicken or halibut or Sirloin fillet or Tuna (albacore packed/canned in water) or LEAN turkey breast
    • Broccoli
    • 2 tbsp peanut butter or 18 almonds
    • 42g protein, 15g fat, 5g carbs

    Meal 4:

    • 2 scoop SUBSTANCE Protein Powder + 10g Glutamine
    • 2 tbsp peanut butter
      MADE INTO SLUDGE!
    • 42g protein, 15g fat, 0g carbs

    Meal 5:

    • 2 scoop SUBSTANCE Protein Powder + 10g Glutamine
    • 2 tbsp peanut butter or 18 almonds
      MADE INTO SLUDGE!
    • 44g protein, 15g fat, 0g carbs

    Meal 6:

    • 2 whole DHA, Organic eggs
    • 4 oz Chicken or halibut/tilapia or Sirloin fillet
    • Broccoli
    • 42g protein, 10g fat, 10g carbs

As you can see, I am NOT measuring vegetables. This is because if I do not cheat on my diet, I really need extra veggies to get my calories and fiber up. Since I am not stressing over getting veggies every meal, it would be really hard to overindulge on green beans only two to three times per day.

When the next update comes, I will be bigger and leaner.
