Awesome. I'm a lurker there.

It'll be good to have you on the board, your knowledge will be an asset.

Also, this is a pretty decent place. Again, welcome!

Lookie... Lookie... who's on here...The Sweet & Sultry Savannah! Nice to see a familar face. Are you going to watch any competition in Ontario this year? After the South Central I'm going to your home town to do the Ontario's. Hope to see you there!

BTW your picture thread was great!

Lookin HUGE man! I think you'll kick a$$ at the comp. Good luck.

looking way thick, silverb

what are your stats?

WillKuenzel

Your legs are definitely a nice strong point. Those things are massive! Good luck at the competition!

CanadianSilverb
04-16-2003, 11:14 AM
Thank for wishing me luck!
My stats are:
5'6"
255lbs offseason
right now 215lbs.... don't know what I will weigh on stage because my weight fluctuates by around 10lbs up and down every week.
I haven't done any measurement either.

04-16-2003, 01:02 PM
Looking awesome man! You look a lot heavier then 215lbs :thumbup: of course you are 5'6". How old are you and how long have you been at it? Again - looking awesome.

CanadianSilverb
04-16-2003, 01:29 PM
Thanks ericg! I think I might look bigger because of the size of my joints. I turned 25 this year and I've been hitting the weights serious since 18. After I won the Windsor Cup at 19, I stuck my head in college, got into the party scene, and wasn't training serious. I was eating only when I was hunger. Needless to say the progress wasn't going far. Now I've matured and taking my training very serious, I hope to make some serious change in my body.

Savannah
04-16-2003, 02:21 PM
I didn't know you were only 25!:eek:

CanadianSilverb
04-16-2003, 02:26 PM
LOL... I didn't think I looked older than that.

Relentless
04-16-2003, 02:26 PM
wow! your pic is all the more impressive given how young you are and that history

I'm sure many here would be keen to read it if you were to start a journal and record your progress here!

04-16-2003, 02:29 PM
Even more impressive man. Nice work!!

CanadianSilverb

After my first show, if your interested I will post a diet log for the next show 10 weeks after.

Relentless
04-16-2003, 02:35 PM
for real, that'd be useful

I'm cutting myself on a lyle-macdonald-driven keto, but would find it hugely worthwhile to observe a real competitor doing a pre-contest diet

Awesome..I can see why you're called Silverback.

Silverback
04-16-2003, 03:41 PM
Hi Ho Silver away!!

You look amazing big guy, your arms look hyouge! what are your vital measurements?

If i were a betting man, i would put money on you to win the comp without seeing the other competitiors!

nice work and great to have you around WBB

You have great size, huge. Your arms are great, legs solid, and the rest of you looks good as well. That said, you look quite smooth for 2.5 weeks out from a show.

Wolverine
04-16-2003, 05:57 PM
SB can correct me if i am wrong but i think that pic was at 5 weeks out. he's ready to blow them away..........

chris mason
04-16-2003, 05:59 PM
Whoops, my bad. I only saw the part about being 2.5 weeks out now. Let's see a current one.

CanadianSilverb
04-16-2003, 07:29 PM
Thanks for the props guys! I think I am going to post pics the day of the show. There is a lot of things that you must do the final week that will make you look flat, watery and small. You can't really judge a person in that state. It's usually the ones that look big, ripped and full that come in off.

Wolverine
04-16-2003, 07:36 PM
A_L shall rule on May 3! How's it going? Ready for work tomorrow? :cry:

Excellent shape buddy!

Can you lay out a quick diet plan you are following? Basic macros etc?

CanadianSilverb
04-17-2003, 06:12 AM
Yes, the gene pool was great to me. My mom has the same size calves as me and doesn't workout. LOL
One think I can tell you is, if you want to compete first have a couple year of serious training and do it. You will only get better in time. This will be the 3rd show I've done. Here is a pic on me when I was 19 and won the Windsor Cup in 1997.

Here's the famous back shot from last April. I've gain at least 15lbs of muscle since then.

I started dieting with the basic carb cycling diet and converted to the Keto diet a week and a half ago. Since I converted to Keto my fat just melted off. I have one carb meal a week. This meal is around 200 grams of carbs on one sitting. This week it was potatoes and a cup of rice. I was so hunger I almost ate it all in the checkout line. The people's faces were so funny looking at me. Here is what my diet consist of right now. It might change 2 weeks out depending on what I look like and how tight my skin is.

Pro 378 grams Carbs 4 grams Fat 63 grams

Meal 1: 6:30am
Shake

Meal 2: 8:30am
8 oz chicken

Meal 3: 10:30am
1 cans Tuna
2/3 tablespoon olive oil

Meal 4: 12:30pm
8 oz chicken
1 tablespoon MCT oil

Meal 5: 3:00pm
8 oz chicken
1 tablespoon MCT oil

Meal 6: 5:30pm
1 cans Tuna
2/3 tablespoon olive oil

You looked incredible at 19! How long had you been lifting at that point?


Your back makes me want to go lift more. What type of exercises to you prefer to do for your back?

Poor chickens. They never had a chance. :p


Great physique man, glad to see another canadian join the fight to take over this board from our limy commonwealth friends. :evillaugh

Do you eat this every day pretty much? Or do you vary? Just wondering as keeping carbs to 4 grams would mean that a lot of things with even trace carbs would have to be eliminated from your diet.

CanadianSilverb

HomeYield: I trained serious for two year before I did a show.

I had back surgery a week after that last pic. Everything have recovered incredibily well. Not 100% but up there. For back I ALWAYS do chin ups (all grips). My workouts vary but I'll give an example of my last one.

4 sets of wide grip chins to failure
4 sets of dumbell rows (reps 8, 6, 6, 6)
4 sets of seated cable rows (dropsets 6, 12)
4 sets of straight arm pulldowns (reps 8-10)
4 sets of lower back machine (reps 10)

I just want to hit all angles of the back before I leave the gym. No deadlift and barbell rows. ****ing my back up twice is not an option for me. To be honest you can build a back without those exercises. My goal now is to train but not strain.

ElPietro: You know what's funny. When I was young we had chickens. I used to chase them down all the time. They never liked me but I love them. The diet changes all the time depending if progress has stopped or if I'm ahead of the game. 4 grams of carbs from the shake in the morning. I haven't looked into traces of carbs in the other food.
