Friday, February 10th, 2006. Yesterday’s blog, “You MUST be on steroids,” stimulated some healthy comments and discussion, both on the blog publicly and in private emails to me. I replied to one post, and I thought it too important to leave buried at the bottom of the comments page so I have posted it in a separate blog here.

You’ve been in the gym, working your glutes off for months or even years and you’ve built a physique that you’re damn proud of! Finally, you have chiseled six pack abs – the type that “ordinary” people want and envy (but don’t want to put in the work to achieve). You’ve gained muscle too! You’ve built big, round “caps” on your delts, you’ve put some nice slabs of muscle on your pecs, your legs are pillars of strength, your back is a chiseled mound of sinew, and your arms look great from every angle in a t-shirt. Best part: You did it naturally. You did it with hard training, disciplined nutrition and a healthy lifestyle. And then…. Some BUTTHEAD comes along and says, “YOU MUST BE ON STEROIDS!” How do you respond? I recently received and replied to that question and felt compelled to share the answer with everyone. I’ve withheld the name for privacy.

Saturday, December 17th, 2005. Holy Hypertrophy! Has it really been a month and a half since I wrote my last blog entry? Wow, man. Those 6 weeks just flew by! The whole year flew by! But you didn’t think I was finished blogging forever did you? Based on my Bodybuilding Secrets email box filled with “where are you” and “what happened to your blog” messages, a lot of people thought I had blogged off into the sunset. Well…I’m BAAAAACK, and it’s time to get BIG! MUSCLE MASS SEASON has begun!

Sunday, October 30th, 2005. The results of the New Jersey NPC Gold’s Classic bodybuilding championships are in, and I was very happy to take second place in the middleweight division. The even better news is that I “improved my placing” over the last contest. If you’re wondering how I could “improve” by getting second at two contests in a row, then just check out the pictures and read today’s blog for all the details!

Friday, October 28th, 2005. Tomorrow is the second (and probably the last) competition of the 2005 season for me. My plan; get up on that stage and have fun! (and then go eat some PIZZA!). Then the quest will continue…

Tuesday, October 25th, 2005. We’re down to the final week before the second bodybuilding show of the season! Today finishes up the “depletion phase” (three days with reduced carbs and hard glycogen-depleting training), and tomorrow is my last day of weight training and the first day of the pre-contest carb up. It will mostly be a repeat of the pre-contest week prior to my October 15th competition, with a few little tweaks.

Monday, October 17th, 2005. I’ve finally “recovered” from Saturday’s competition (I slept like you wouldn’t believe Saturday & Sunday night, plus a couple of naps in between… it takes a lot out of you!) I also had a couple of good “cheat meals,” but today I’m right back to training and dieting for the next competition October 29th. Before I start blogging this week’s diet and workouts, today I’m simply going to post a few photos and details about Saturday’s show.
