15-ish weeks until the Arnold, which is March 7, 2015.

I’m starting week 2 of offseason work this week. I’ve had enough time off now. I’m ready to get back to it. This will be all raw for 5 weeks.

I plan on bringing my bodyweight down to the 260 range vs 265 – 268 so I can make the cut as simple as possible. I’ll be working on dropping the weight over the next little bit.

I’m making Saturday a day to hit all 3 big movements – squat/bench/deadlift to ensure my back continues to have the conditioning necessary to improve. Also, I REALLY LIKE doing all 3 on one day, then just assistance work on the other 2 days. Works well, especially raw.

Normal warm-up: Always McGill big 3
Band fly
Band press-down

Mcgill chin: crap ton Heavy
band fly: felt like doing them Band Skull – again, wanted to do them
DB shrug: 3×12
One Leg GM: 3×12
KB Golbet squat: 3×12
Lat pull-down: 3×12
Band pull-apart: 3×20
Hammer curl: 3×12

Very good training session. Very happy with how training is going, and how my body is feeling.

FINALLY. Again, finally. I’m very grateful, but cannot become complacent, that’s for sure. Lots of work to do before the arnold if I’m going to have the showing I’m capable of. I’m fighting the battle of the bulge right now with the holidays. I will clean it up next week and get back on the horse.
