Marc Lobliner's Bodybuilding Journey - One Week Out From Heart Of Texas!

This is it. One week out from what was supposed to be a warm-up show and I am ready. I am peeled and it only gets better from here. Here are the details of my training, diet and more!

All my striations live in Texas, Texas is the place that shredded glutes like to be...

This is it. One week out from what was supposed to be a warm-up show and I am ready. I am peeled and it only gets better from here. My glutes should be in by game day and my weight is at 166.8 today! I will probably step onstage at around this weight post carb up. The advantage is that with the Bodybuilding.com video shoot, we were able to test how my body responds to certain things. Thus tomorrow, exactly one week out from the Heart of Texas, we will do a new carb up strategy.

Since I am so lean, we are going to add 10 ounces of YAM to meal 5 and keep the nighttime carb meal the same for meal 6. This is the advantage to being ahead of the curve, you can experiment! It will look like this:

-> Saturday Sept 8th Carb Meal Test:

    Workout Nutrition = 12 scoops Xtend in 20-24 oz cold water

    Meal 1

    • 5 oz Fish
    • 1/2 cup steamed asparagus
    • 2 oz Avocado or 2 tsp macadamia oil/flax oil/enova oil/olive oil/smart balance oil
    • 35g protein, 10g fat, 5g carbs

    Meal 2

    • 5 oz Fish
    • 1/2 cup steamed asparagus
    • 1 oz Avocado or 1 tsp macadamia oil/flax oil/enova oil/olive oil/smart balance oil
    • 35g protein, 5g fat, 5g carbs

    Meal 3

    • 6 oz Fish
    • 1/2 cup steamed asparagus
    • 1 oz Avocado or 1 tsp macadamia oil/flax oil/enova oil/olive oil/smart balance oil
    • 42g protein, 5g fat, 5g carbs

    Meal 4

    • 5 oz Fish
    • 1/2 cup steamed asparagus
    • 1 oz Avocado or 1 tsp macadamia oil/flax oil/enova oil/olive oil/smart balance oil
    • 35g protein, 5g fat, 5g carbs

    Meal 5

    • 6 oz Fish
    • 1/2 cup steamed asparagus or green beans or broccoli
    • 1 oz Avocado or 1 tsp macadamia oil/flax oil/enova oil/olive oil/smart balance oil
    • 10 oz sweet potato
    • 42g protein, 5g fat, 80g carbs

-> Meal 6 Carb Meal:

    Every 18th meal is carb meal. LAST MEAL and it replaces Meal 6. MUST BE eaten in this order and make it LAST 60-75 minutes... TAKE YOUR TIME!!!!!!

    1. 1.5 cup asparagus = 15g carbs
    2. 13 oz grapefruit = 30g carbs
    3. 1/2 cup oatmeal (measured dry then add water and microwave) = 30g carbs
      1 tbsp macadamia oil/flax oil/enova oil/olive oil/smart balance oil = 15g fat
    4. 16 oz yam or sweet potato = 120g carbs
      1 tbsp macadamia oil/flax oil/enova oil/olive oil/smart balance oil = 15g fat

    Carbs - 195g = 780 cals
    Fat - 30g = 270

The only change is the yam with meal five. This might give me that little extra mojo I need to fill out and do some damage! Considering how lean I am right now, it cannot hurt to try!


Cardio Cut

A lot of people were screaming at me for the amount of cardio I was doing-up to THREE HOURS daily. Did people think I actually WANTED to do this much cardio? Heck no-I have no time for it with Scivation, a child and a wife! Yet, I did it. And now I am over a week out and READY to step onstage. No last minute fat loss tricks or anything.

I have actually CUT cardio at a week out to only 45 minutes Pre Workout at low intensity. My legs are healing and getting those deeply etched cuts that I knew existed but were blurred by the swelling caused by all the cardio! All of that cardio and no muscle loss. It goes to show you how effective my diet truly is. YEAH BUDDY! The show I am actually dieting for isn't until October 20!


Training

As for what I will do the week of the show, I have been going hard and heavy with my 15 rep, rest-pause style. But next week I do not want to tax my muscles too much nor do I want to be sore on stage. Thus for me, Derek "Beast" Charlebois and myself put the following depletion routine together to ensure my legs are rested and I am ready to tear it up in Texas! Saturday will be my last regular workout-ARM DAY!

My next article will be written in two to three days and will detail what we have decided to do. Why can't I tell you now? Well, the body is not a textbook, and we will not know what we're going to until we see how my body reacts. Listen, I help people with their diet and training for a living, but I would NEVER do this without Chuck Rudolph and Derek Charlebois.

If you are serious about achieving your best conditioning ever, it is my opinion that you will get the best results if you defer to an expert even if you are one yourself.
