…However my latest blood test revealed nasty levels of triglycerides & a bad cholesterol ratio. So I am cutting out chocolate biscuits and all the rest of the junk. I started taking aspirin every night & Niacin. Next I will add phytosterols which will enable me to eat a more calorie dense diet without absorbing cholesterol.

The thing with triglycerides is they will rocket up if you say – munch on a whole packet of chocolate in one setting everyday for a year .. um yep I did.

So I cut it out no. Anyway if you focus carefully on glycemic index you can add some calorie dense foods back in while preventing the triglyceride spike – to do this there needs to be sufficient fibre & low glycemic food to keep the sugar effects down.

My bod at present 100 kg



I’m actually training more like a wrestler than a bodybuilder these days.

I need to get some shots done flexed – will ask a young lady to help out with that.

I have stubborn Arms !!!

Here are my Physique Pictures

Its not perfect as you can see. In fact there are two major things wrong with my bod.
front chest
front chest 2

front chest 3

1. My arms are too small for the rest of my body. All the rest has the proper bodybuilding proportions.

2. I’m a bit fat. I am smooth, my abs dont show and I have a bit of a pot gut from stuffing my face.

Positives –

I lose fat fast when I do aerobics (but I get overtrained).

I’m pretty strong and reckon I can gain strength from where I’m at now pretty fast.

I am in good general health.

My legs are lean and well developed proportionately.

I can do 1000 crunches easy. I bench more than my body weight easily.

Goals –

At present I am usually between 220 and 230 lbs at 5 ft 11 in. Steroid free for life.

I’d like to gain a couple of stone, get rid of the fat and enlarge my arms proportionately.
I’d like to increase over all size, strength and lean mass up to about 260 lbs.

At present I train 3-4 times per week. Splitting upper and lower body.
My workouts are 45 minutes and heavy. I do about 12 -16 sets per workout and some warmup.

My aerobics efforts are sporadic at best. I only run when its sunny and do about 45 minutes to
an hour on the rowing machine each week in total.
