hello me and my wife are pro natural bodybuilder and figure pros, we compete mainly with the WNBF(past) and presently with the IFPA and the NGA. I presently won The overall NPC ELITE in Greensboro NC, which was a National Qualifier. so i will also compete in the NPC as well , maybe the Team U and master nationals. in the next couple days me and my wife will post some workouts as well as nutrition , training and supplements that we take. we also are sponsored by ATLARGE NUTRITION, so we will be giving you all the supplements we take as well. we both are presently in the offseason, but my wife dawn starts her pre contest diet the 1st of Jan.we will feel u in on what shows our worksouts etc, it should be fun and can be a learning experience for some, we r are glad and want to help any way we can.

thanks david and dawn trantham

first entry for training journal

first of all i am glad to be here posting my workout, so if i can help anyone please chime in. i just recently did my last show Nov 14, came in 2nd heavy at the IFPA Yorton cup in DC. i still am really lean, my goal is slowly gain strength and increase my mass, by eating clean foods with the execption of a cheat meal every now and then. (will post diet as well from time to time), i stress increasing my weights slowly because the last 2 years i have hurt my self by increasing my poundage to rapidly. (serious injury last year when i tore my bicep) so my goal is to increase my lean body mass by eating good clean bodybuilding foods, while trainging heavy and various other methods.

WOW WHAT A WORKOUT!!!!!!!


I MUST SAY THAT WAS A GREAT WORKOUT, AS YOU CAN SEE I TRAIN WITH VOLUME AND TRY TO INCORPORATE HEAVY LOW REPS WITH SOME MODERATE REPS OF 12. I WILL PROBABLY DO THIS FOR THE NEXT WEEK OR SO, THEN MAYBE TRY SOME FST-7 TRAINING TO MIX IT UP. I MUST SAY MY LEGS ARE ALREADY GETTING SORE!!! THATS A GOOD THING

MY DEIT TODAY WAS GOOD DON,T KNOW THE EXACT CALORIES BUT AT ALL CLEAN FOOD!!!

Strong lifting man. So you don't keep heavy compounds in your routine during prep? Still squatting or naw?

David Trantham
12-08-2009, 06:29 AM
yea i still lift heavy as possible, i just cut deadlifts out a 7 or 8 weeks before my show, i feel like its a movement that u can get hurt at when u get very lean. but the ansewer is yes i still squat all the way to my show, my weight amounts just go down. nothing else changes in my pre contest prep, in some movements i dont lose hardly any strenght, just mostly real power movements,such as dead and squats. this is probably due to all the cardio that is being done and the ware and tear on my legs.

Diggin the workouts in here. I've been battling with the post contest blues myself, getting fat, and trying to get back on the horse. This is definitely motivating!

How much over your show day weight from the Nov 14th show are you? I competed on the same day haha.

David Trantham
12-14-2009, 11:37 AM
as of today i was only 5lbs over my weight from the show on the 14th. i really trying to take it slow. even though i have on gained about 5lbs i have gotten a lot stronger in some of my lifts. i probably want compete next year, take time to really put on som lean body mass, my goal is to gain about 20 to 25 lbs which would put me about 5lbs heavier than last year.

It looks like you are hitting a lot of volume in your workouts. Do you always train in the 8-20 rep range or do you mix things up a bit?

David Trantham
12-16-2009, 10:22 AM
no usually i change it up,this week is higher/drop set week. leading up to this i was keeping rep ranges 6-12. for the next 2 weeks i am going to try to something different, mainly so i can get out of the gym fast for the holidays. i am going to cut out some volume. do about 8-10 power sets then do a fst-7 training for the 7 sets this will speed up my time in the gym and allow me to hit 2 different muscle fibers. hopefully i will see some results for it for 2 weeks. then after holidays i will probably go back to rep ranges 5-12 for about 3 weeks

i changed it up a little this week, i did more high reps and drop sets(which i think my leggs respond to better) also i did quads first then hams, in the past 6 or 7 weeks i waas doing quad exercise then ham exercise. by me changing it up my hamstrings were on fire,(this is a week point for me so hopfully this will help, and by the way as i wright this i am already sore.

hello everyone, sorry ihave not been posting lately, been really busy. though i have not worked in about a week and a half. where does the time go, their is not enough time in the day. been trying to spend time with family,hunting a little,shopping, and visiting my grandmother in the hospitol as well as working out!! come monday i will be back on schedule. thank god!!! bu.t it is good to have time to spend doing exactly what u want to do with no set schedule. all the food was good as well, though the lst couple days i have done a little better, eating mainly blue corn chips w/flax seed and some other kind of chips with flax seed. ( they are my favorite,i am hooked on them aas well as pop corn and the dreadful train mix!!! other than that i have been doing relly good. i been under the weather a little as well. i think my shoulder workouts suffered,but i bounced back for legs wed. they are so sore now i can hardly move. here is my workouts for the last three days (i may have forgot somethings) i hope everyone had a merry christmas and i wish everyone a happy healthy new year.

well today its time to get back to serious business(vacation is over) i have been eating a little junk for the last week or so. time to start eating 100% clean again. the way i look at it, is have a good solid year to put on as much lean body mass as possible, so its game time !!!!! need to bring up my week areas (chest and shoulders) my goal in a year is to gain a good soild 3 to 4 lbs of lean body mass. wish me luck.

Dave I was never a fan of the hack squat in my old gym because of the way it felt in my knees. At another gym I went to they had a V-Squat and I started to face into the machine, which was a fantastic quad exercise. My question with your diet is, are you concerned about the mercury content in tuna? Notice you have been eating quite a bit.

David Trantham
01-09-2010, 06:19 AM
i have ate tuna like this for years. 2 years go i was tested and the results came back neg. dr laughed when i told him i wanted to get tested (its take a extreme amount of tune to get infected) personally i thought it was all blown out of proportion.

just wanted to note my left bicep is still bothering me,i kind of figured out it hurts mostly with width grip pulldowns. so the next couple weeks i am going to lighten up my back routine by doing ,more reps with drop sets etc, hopefully this will give it time to heal.

Checking in...

I like the workouts. It looks like you still use a good ammount of "power" movements in your training and you show good strength in them too. I like that.

How long did it take for you to build up to that ammount of volume?
Something I'm really working on lately is my work capacity. I want to be able to add volume, still keep my intensity, and not burn out.

David Trantham
01-20-2010, 08:08 PM
I have been training for say 25years not necessary bodybuilding if used to play all sports in hs. Played basketball for many years until injuries then long distance running, so combined with all thses activites all my life, i never really get tired or burned out. If i do start to get tired or wore down i just take a little time off, i seem even at my age to recover really fast. I think anyone can do volume, it just takes time to get to that level. Your body can and will adapt to what ever you through at it.

I usually see guys do barbell press before the dumbbell press. Is there a reason you do the dumbbells first? Nice workout BTW.

i just feel better doing barbells if feel like the extrea range of motion works the overall shld better, as you notice i pretty much do the same for chest. overall i feel it works the muscle better. just my opinion.

on note my knees are starting to really stay sore, they have been bothering me for the last 2 years and i think my weight s show that from time to time, thats why i have to do so many warm up sets, and sometimes i am half way through my workout out before i feel really loose. i guess thats a sign of getting older.

I preferred hitting hamstrings before quads when I was more BB focused in my training. I didn't find it actually hindered squats all that much either and I could get into working sets quicker because I was warmed up.

as of this morning weight is holding still around 200lbs, last week got up to 202,but had a long weekend in the mountains of nc, did not each as much so maybe thats the cause of he weight loss. i still feel pretty good, i seam to be getting stronger in some lifts so i think i am making slow and steady progress.the only down fall is i may be over training at times, i stay sore alot. sometimes i need to listen to my body more , the fact is i love training!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm very impressed with your workouts. It seems a rarity for a guy to use heavy weights along with a lot of volume.

i am taking the year off, i need to put on some size (around205-207 in the mornings, my goal is to be 220 in the mornings) i know i need to gain about 13 lbs, but the good thing is i stay really lean, i am sure my bf now is 10% or less. 2nd my wife is competing this year and i am supporting her. my next show or the show i will be shooting for next year is the NPC master national probably next july.
