I'll share another this week.  9 days out and we're not finished yet. @andrew_vu87 keeping me in line to be even drier. By far the best conditioning to date and the heaviest. #nofilters.

What's the benefit of being 40? Knowing that I'm doing what I want to do still at a high level. That the young people that look down at the aging process and those with a few years on them need to think twice. Will you be at the top of your game 20 years from now? Will your business reflect the same work ethic that you put into your body? Will you be just getting by or getting better not only physically but financially,  personal life,  and with family? I'm looking forward to see what the next 10 years bring in all areas of my life. Not because I'm leaving it to chance but because I'm putting in the work to be in a better place. #blessed #thisishowwedo #teampastorpump #letsgetit #letswork #letsdothis #bodybuilding #npc #ifbbproleague #mensphysique #figure #fitness #physique #classicphysique #flexappealmiami #FAM #fitness #apexmusclejournal

So I need to bring more conditioning and hardness.... so here we go. #wejustgettingstarted. 2 more weeks to go even crazier. @andrew_vu87 says eat nails , I'll eat nails. Almost game time. Let's bring it. #thisishowwedo #teampastorpump #letsgetit #letswork #letsdothis #bodybuilding #npc #npcpuertorico #ifbbproleague #mensphysique #figure #fitness #physique #classicphysique #bikini #noexcuses #noquit #doitformom #flexappealmiami #FAM
2 weeks out, carbs at bikini competitor's levels, and still grinding it out. Most find a reason to train "light" from the beginning of prep. You can keep that. Find a way to push hard , and smart, all the way through. Your body will only be as dense and hard as the training you give it makes it. #thisishowwedo #teampastorpump #letsgetit #letswork #letsdothis #bodybuilding #npc #npcpuertorico #ifbbproleague #mensphysique #figure #fitness #physique #classicphysique #bikini #noexcuses #noquit #doitformom #flexappealmiami #FAM #apexmusclejournal @intense.supplements @andrew_vu87 @flexappealmiami @morphogenben @liquidsunrayz @lsrathletepromotions

To post or not to post....what I always debate. Well, here we go. Already better than I was last year and still 2.5 weeks to go and heavier and harder than March at the Arnold. Thx to @andrew_vu87 for pushing me and getting behind me.  Even at 40 I still drive to get better and make each day count. Don't wait, hope, or wish to make changes. Force it. You need to push each and every day with a purpose.  It won't happen any other way.  #thisishowwedo #teampastorpump #letsgetit #letswork #letsdothis #bodybuilding #npc #npcpuertorico #ifbbproleague #mensphysique #figure #fitness #physique #classicphysique #bikini #noexcuses #noquit #doitformom #flexappealmiami #FAM #morphogennutrition @flexappealmiami @morphogenben @apexmusclejournal

Here's some of the movements from today's training.(swipe over for all 4 vids) Not a fan of recording myself but I know it helps a few of you out and I do it for that reason. Notice that all movements have that lat squeeze to keep it focused on the back and not arms. 3 weeks out but still pushing as hard as possible. @andrew_vu87 and I are going to take the conditioning where it hasn't been before.  #thisishowwedo #teampastorpump #letsgetit #letswork #letsdothis #bodybuilding #npc #npcpuertorico #ifbbproleague #mensphysique #figure #fitness #physique #classicphysique #bikini #noexcuses #noquit #doitformom #flexappealmiami #FAM #fitness #physique #classicphysique #bikini @flexappealmiami @intense.supplements @cardilloweightbelts

#throwbackthursday. For those who know , they know what this is. A dream come true to visit the house and see the legendary mantle of my mentor @lee_haney_official  As most of you probably get told by others "my friend is as big as you" or "my friend used to compete and told me..." I don't argue with people about training and diet. I discuss with those that know and can share and help build each other up.  I'm beyond blessed to have friends that "have competed " and know a thing or 2 that have taught me. To everyone who has helped shape me I'm more than appreciative. #thisishowwedo #teampastorpump #letsgetit #letswork #letsdothis #bodybuilding #npc #npcpuertorico #ifbbproleague #mensphysique #figure #fitness #physique #classicphysique #bikini #oldmanworking #doitformom #noexcuses #noquit

Push until the weights don't move. Some will see me train and say "he's not going through a full range " 
#1 Time under tension (TUT) never relax or let the target muscle rest 
#2. If you're still getting a full range of motion by the last rep then you aren't working hard enough. Keep the set goin until the weight is barley moving. Then you are done. 
Most quit when it gets hard.  That's when the set is just beginning. Learn to embrace the challenge and put in work like your supposed to. #thisishowwedo #teampastorpump #letsgetit #letswork #letsdothis #bodybuilding #npc #npcpuertorico #ifbbproleague #mensphysique #figure #fitness #physique #classicphysique #bikini #noexcuses #noquit #doitformom #oldmanworking #teamdoberman #apexmusclejournal #flexappealmiami #FAM #fitness

One thing you don't see me do is complain.  Not because there isn't negatives in our lives but because focusing on it is a choice.  In this game we choose to put ourselves through a bit of torture. If you want to succeed at business you will sleep less hours a night.  It's our choice to do or not to do it.  Whether a negative situation is self afflicted (which it usually is) or just a matter of circumstance,  you only have 2 options. 1. Complain , fold,  and get crushed under the responsibility  or 2. Man up, woman up and handle your business. Complaining won't solve it , actions will.

A few clips from today. First 2 exercise videos are a superset. Notice on every rep there is a pause on top. As @thedorianyates would always say, "if you can't hold the rep then you're using to much weight." 4 weeks to grind. @cardilloweightbelts @official_otomix @flexappealmiami @intense.supplements @liquidsunrayz @lsrathletepromotions @cjselitesuits @andrew_vu87 #thisishowwedo #teampastorpump #letsgetit #letswork #letsdothis #bodybuilding #npc #npcpuertorico #ifbbproleague #mensphysique #figure #fitness #physique #classicphysique #bikini #noexcuses #noquit #doitformom #oldmanworking

Sharing because @ifbb_santi said I gotta.  lol.  4 weeks out and a little quick video from this morning post cardio.  So no pump or carb load. Why last second  video?

Short clip of today's work. 4 weeks left to get it done.  Every one has an excuse to "take it easy today" , find a reason to push it harder.

Genetics... the excuse we use for coming up short and the "reason" other people achieve more than us. While it's true certain people have more going for them than we might have that's not a reason for us to not make the most of what we have. I've never seen anyone not train chest or bicep because of "weak genetics" yet legs can be completely ignored. If you want something bad enough you'll work for it  Put the phone down between sets and focus.  Learn how to train,  and that goes for every body part. Real work will always get real results.  #thisishowwedo #teampastorpump #letsgetit #letswork #letsdothis #bodybuilding #npc #npcpuertorico #ifbbproleague #mensphysique #figure #fitness #physique #classicphysique #bikini #noexcuses #noquit #doitformom #oldmanworking

Rest pause on the power laterals.  Go back and forth until you get to 2 to 3 reps. Today was 80lb dumbbell for reps of  12,6, 3. At 5 weeks out its a grind.  #thisishowwedo #teampastorpump #letsgetit #letswork #letsdothis #bodybuilding #npc #ifbbproleague #mensphysique #oldmanworking #doitformom #noexcuses #noquit #flexappealmiami #FAM #fitness #physique #classicphysique #bikini@flexappealmiami @cardilloweightbelts
