I always try to train and keep in shape; but my party animal nature often works against me. I go through my ups and downs with it. Sometimes I’m on, other times, partying takes over, I let it go and gain on the booze pounds. But there’s nothing like an impending film to motivate you to work-out, so you can be at your best for the film. So I am now back in hardcore training, am trying to kick the cigarettes, am toning down on booze and am following a strict diet.
When I did DEADEN, I went for pure MASS. I wanted the character to look like a FREIGHT TRAIN. For TRIGGER though; I want to go leaner; which sucks for me cause my body type goes hand in hand with gaining mass fast – but has a hard getting cut – which means WORKING OUT HARDER.
The freight train look as I call it, that I got for DEADEN…
So here’s my routine, diet and the supplements I take. Why? Why the fuck not.
On DEADEN I took on a classic MASS work-out (full body work-out – 3 to 4 sets per exercise – reps of 6 to 8), now I’m doing circuit training (with reps of 8 to 10), which promotes weight loss, cardio and getting that rip effect.
Everyday: 3 set of crunches – as much as I can do.
On MONDAY, WEDNESDAY and FRIDAY I do this:
Clean and Jerk – Bench Press – Pull Ups – Close Grip Bench – Barbell Curls – Dumbbell Lateral Raises
I do these exercises one after another with no rest in between. Once I’ve done all 5, I rest for one minute and then do the whole thing again. I’m up to two sets NOW – I wanna get up to 4.
On TUESDAYS and THURSDAYS I do laps in the pool in the morning, then do 3 rounds on the punching bag, do a bike ride in the afternoon and then play hockey in the evening.
Diet wise, it goes something like this daily:
Breakfast: 2 Eggs and 2 pieces of Toast – ideally I should stick to only egg whites – but the taste is so damn boring…
Snack: Protein Shake with milk.
Lunch: Grilled chicken – green veggies.
Snack: Low fat Yogurt.
Dinner: Grilled chicken and broccoli or salad.
On weekends I drink and eat what I want. I may have to change that, depending on my progress.
As for supplements; when I did DEADEN I used Andro 1-AD Pro Hormones. It promoted gaining MASS very quickly – but at the same time it caused some water retention, hence I got big, yet a tad too puffy for my liking. On this run; I’m avoiding AD-1 and here’s what I take:
Every day I have a protein shake with milk (Nitro Tech Hardcore) and after every work-out I take a glass of Cell Tech Hardcore (with water). That’s it.
So there ya have it! I’m done!
