Old Navy's Quest to be Bigger, Badder & Better in 2010

Old Navy's Quest to be Bigger, Badder & Better in 2010

Most of you know a little about me if you have read any of my articles or followed my previous seven journals posted here and on other bodybuilding and fitness web sites these past five years.  My last journal, "Getting My Kicks on 'Route 66,'" covered my training and competitions this year, as a 66 year-old natural master professional bodybuilder.  I ended that journal after my final contest of the year, the 2009 NPA Nationals and Masters Universe in Burlington, NC on July 18,  where I placed First in the Open Men's Lightweight Class in the NPA Nationals and First in the Men's Masters 60+ Class in the NPA Masters Universe.  I was awarded a Natural Physique Association (NPA) Pro Card at this event.  I also hold Natural Pro Cards in the National Gym Association (NGA), the World Natural Sports Organization (WNSO-FAME) and in the International Drug Free Athletics (IDFA-Canada).  I have competed in five Natural Pro Shows, placing 3rd in two, 2nd in two and 1st in one.

My goal this year was to add size and compete 10 pounds heavier than I did in 2008.  I hit the stage on July 18 at 148.2, a little more than 10 pounds up from last year.  Goal achieved.

Today, I start "Old Navy's Quest to be Bigger, Badder & Better in 2010."  My goal is to hit the Pro Stage next year at 160 pounds of lean, hard muscle and stand up proudly as a 67 year-old professional athlete entered in my 30th competition.

I have lined up some good help.

Brian Andrews, President of All American EFX, has named me to "Team EFX" as a AAEFX Sponsored Athlete.  I am going to be his first "Senior Natural Freak!" Very Cool! 

I am using the "Flex Wheeler Signature Series" as part of my training regimen:

Kre-Alkalyn EFX PRO
Nytric EFX PRO
CELL RUSH
LBA PRO
LG5 PRO

I am also training with the AAEFX "Step-Load Progression" Principle and will report my progress over the next three cycles of the 18-weeks plan.

I will Train Hard and Train Natural in my Quest to be Bigger, Badder & Better in 2010 or my name isn't Old Navy!

Friday, July 31, 2009 – Week One of Step-Load Progression Training

Weight: 150.0 pounds

I really like this program. It calls for heavy lifting and I love pushing weight. My training partner and I do this plan on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Tuesdays and Thursdays are for cardio and muscle recovery.

Here is how Week One went:

Day 1 – Legs and Calves

Smith Machine Squats – 195 x 10 x1

Leg Extensions – 140 x 10 x 2

Standing Calf Raise – 190 x 10 x 3

Seated Calf Raise – 70 x 10 x 3

Abs Crunches – 125 reps


Day 2 – Back, Biceps, Abs

Smith Machine Dead Lifts – 175 x 10 x 1

T-Bar Rows – 60 x 10 x 2

Close Grip Pull Downs – 130 x 10 x 2

Low Cable Rows – 100 x 10 x 2

Shrugs – 42.5 x 40 x 2

Dumb Bell Curls – 32.5 x 10 x 2

Abs Crunches – 125 reps


Day 3 – Chest, Shoulders, Triceps and Abs

Smith Machine Bench Press – 155 x 10 x 1

Smith Machine Incline Press – 125 x 10 x 2

Seated Shoulder Press – 75 x 10 x 2

Dumb Bell Raises – 17.5 x 10 x 2

Lying Dumb Bell Triceps Extensions – 27.5 x 10 x 2

Abs Crunches – 125 Reps

It was a great first week. Each week, the work will become more difficult as we increase sets and increase weight loads. We are using the Smith Machine for much of the work to avoid rotator cuff problems.

I have only been on the AAEFX supplement stack for one week. I will report any changes or effects next week. So far, so good. Rocking & Rolling.

Friday, August 7, 2009 – Week Two of Step-Load Progression Training

Weight: 151.4 pounds

We kicked up the program in Week Two by doing five sets of the Major Exercises (Squats, Dead Lifts and Bench Press).

Here is how Week Two went:

Day 1 – Legs and Calves

Smith Machine Squats – 165 x 10 x 5 sets (85% of 100% Rep Max)

Machine Leg Extensions – 140 x 10 x 2 sets

Machine Leg Curls – 80 x 10 x 2 sets

Standing Calf Raise – 190 x 10 x 3 sets

Seated Calf Raise – 70 x 10 x 3 sets

Abs Crunches – 125 reps


Day 2 – Back, Biceps, Abs

Smith Machine Dead Lifts – 155 x 10 x 5 sets (85% of 100% Max) – This sucked!

T-Bar Rows – 60 x 10 x 2 sets

Close Grip Pull Downs – 130 x 10 x 2 sets

Low Cable Rows – 100 x 10 x 2 sets

Shrugs – 42.5 x 40 x 2 sets

Dumb Bell Curls – 32.5 x 10 x 2 sets

Abs Crunches – 125 reps


Day 3 – Chest, Shoulders, Triceps and Abs

Smith Machine Bench Press – 130 x 10 x 5 sets (85% of 100% Max)

Abs Crunches – 125 Reps

It was a great second week. Each week, the work will become more difficult as we increase sets and increase weight loads. We are using the Smith Machine for much of the work to avoid rotator cuff problems. This is Fun Stuff.

I am using the "Flex Wheeler Signature Series" supplements as part of my training regimen:

Kre-Alkalyn EFX PRO
Nytric EFX PRO
CELL RUSH
LBA PRO
LG5 PRO

This is the second week I have been on this excellent stack. It’s still early, but I am feeling stronger during my workouts and my recovery time is a little shorter than before. I have high expectations that this supplement plan, coupled with my rigorous workout regimen, will prove to be very beneficial.

It was a great third week. Each week, the work will become more difficult as we increase sets and increase weight loads. We are using the Smith Machine for much of the work to avoid rotator cuff problems. This is Tough Stuff.

Supplements:

I am using the AAEFX "Flex Wheeler Signature Series" as part of my training regimen:

Kre-Alkalyn EFX PRO
Nytric EFX PRO
CELL RUSH
LBA PRO
LG5 PRO
NF-PRO

I added the AAEFX protein supplement, NF-PRO 100% Pro-Grade Whey Protein. It has excellent content, mixes well and tastes great! I have the chocolate. It also comes in vanilla.

This is the third week I have been on this excellent stack. I am definitely feeling strong during my workouts and my recovery time is shorter. I have continued to eat clean while adding 2.4 pounds of mostly lean body weight.

Friday, August 21, 2009 – Week Four of Step-Load Progression Training
 
Weight: 153.4  pounds
 
We kicked up the program in Week Four by adding extra weight to some of the sets and adding a couple of exercises.
 
Here is how Week Four went:
 
Day 1 – Legs and Calves
 
Smith Machine Squats – 195 x 10 x 3 sets (100% of 100% Rep Max)
 
Machine Leg Extensions – 140 x 10 x 3 sets
 
Machine Leg Curls – 85 x 10 x 3 sets
 
Hip Adductor – 110 x 15 x 3 sets
 
Hip Abductor – 150 x 15 x 3 sets
 
Seated Calf Raise – 190 x 25 x 3 sets
 
Standing Calf Raise – 160 x 25 x 3 sets
 
Abs Crunches – 125 reps
 
 
Day 2 – Back, Biceps, Abs
 
Smith Machine Dead Lifts – 165 x 10 x 4 sets (95% of 100% Max)
 
T-Bar Rows – 60 x 10 x 3 sets
 
Close Grip Pull Downs – 130 x 10 x 3 sets
 
Low Cable Rows – 100 x 10 x 3 sets
 
Shrugs – 42.5 x 32 x 3 sets
 
Dumb Bell Curls – 32.5 x 10 x 3 sets
 
Abs Crunches – 125 reps
 
 
Day 3 – Chest, Shoulders, Triceps and Abs
 
Smith Machine Bench Press – 150 x 10 x 4 sets (95% of 100% Max)

Lying Dumb Bell Triceps Extensions – 27.5 x 10 x 3 sets
 
Unassisted Pull Ups – 10 x 2 sets
 
Abs Crunches – 125 Reps
 
It was a great fourth week.  Next week we set new 100% Rep Max for Squats, Dead Lifts and Chest Press.  We also add weight to each of the other exercises while dropping reps.  The idea is to lift heavier in the next five-week cycle.  This is an excellent training program.
 
Supplements:
 
I am using the "Flex Wheeler Signature Series" as part of my training regimen:
 
Kre-Alkalyn EFX PRO
Nytric EFX PRO
CELL RUSH
LBA PRO
LG5 PRO

NF-PRO
 
 
This is the fourth week I have been on this excellent stack.  I am looking forward to the next five-weeks of heavy lifting.  I am confident my AAEFX stack will help me achieve my lifting goals during this training cycle.  I am definitely feeling stronger.

Scott,

Unless I missed it somehow, can you explain the AAEFX "Step-Load Progression" Principle.  Or if there is a link somewhere, that would suffice.

Gotta say this is impressive friend.  As always, you keep on challenging yourself in so many ways it's quite obvious why you keep making good progress.

Update:  AAEFX Step Load Progression Program Download Link

I'm glad you found the link, Marc.  This plan Rocks.  It's tough, but fun.  I'm in the fifth week.  The plan lasts for 18 weeks.  I'm hoping to set a few Personal Bests before I'm through.  Hope all is great with you.

Friday, September 4, 2009, Week Six of the AAEFX Step-Load Progression Plan
 
Weight - 154.0
 
This was my hardest week so far.  As a weight trainer/bodybuilder, I love working out and lifting heavy.  This was a programmed week off.  I did nothing.  I work as the Fitness Director at a local YMCA.  I'm in the weight room several hours each day.  To not lift while around all that heavy metal was hard.  I'm having withdrawal anxiety.    Not really, but it was different.  I can't remember the last time I didn't train for a full week.  Step-Load Progression calls for a week off after five weeks on in order to rest, recover and aid in building muscle.  I will pick it up again on Monday, Labor Day.

Friday, October 15, 2009, Week 12 of the AAEFX Step-Load Progression Plan
 
Weight - 163.0

 
AAEFX Step-Load Progression calls for a week off after five weeks on in order to rest, recover and aid in building muscle.  This was the week off after the second five-week cycle.  I will begin the final six weeks, including a final off-week on Monday.

I spent the week doing light cardio and bodyweight circuit training. I didn’t touch a weight, but did a lot of pull ups, push ups, dips, crunches, leg lifts and cardio, including skip rope and tread mill.
I’m feeling really great.  My weight is up and my muscle tone is good.
