    Nice article. I have liked following the story. I hope there is a part 3 and 4. Days before the show, the day of the show and maybe more.
    Never shall innocent blood be shed, yet the blood of the wicked shall flow like a river. The Three shall spread their blackened wings and be the vengeful striking hammer of God.

    Holy smokes, laddie. You lost over 100 LBS and where's the excess skin from the tummy area? I'm just going to take a wild guess here and say you have the best genetics I have ever seen, maybe even better than BCC. And all natural, too?

    This is a useless quote that means nothing but yet defines me as a profound intellect.

    You know, it's funny because I wouldn't say Paul has great genetics actually.

    Chase reminded me of one of those guys who classically did have great genetics. Proportional, everything in the right place and seemed to be able to cut or bulk pretty quickly.

    Paul on the other hand has created an amazing tranformation, but I think he's had to work incedibly hard at it to make it happen and I don't think he is as proportional as Chase.

    Just didn;t want people to think that he had great genetics and did this easily

    Chase had very very elite genetics. He was just tapping into them when he feel out of touch. I always wonder what he's up to.

    Paul doesn't have those same genes, but he is busting his ass! Way to go Paul.

    Be interesting to see what Paul says but I actually do think his traps lag a little...

    But I think it's because he has fairly big shoulders/arms and they just overpower things a little.

    Still jealous of the abs though lol

    I do have a question -he's obviously ridiculous looking, but why are his pecs so small? Some of it is them being overpowered by the muscles around them, and some of it may be camera angles, but his chest just doesn't look very big.

    Yea, I donno about genetics. I was a fattie for the better part of growing up. If you see my pics from even 1 year ago you would probably not recognize me.

    Chase was a genetic anomaly. I have no clue what he is up to these days. Hopefully still llifting

    The only thing I think I have good genetics for is gaining weight, not the good kind either.

    Traps need to play some catch up. I have yet to lift in a caloric excess for more than a week at a time. This offseason will be all about finally bringing up body parts the proper way. Anything I've gained muscle wise has been on a long long cut.

    Pecs are tiny. For the longest time I had serious shoulder/back issues. Doing any kind of incline or overhead pressing was killer. Barbell work was impossible on incline or military press. As a result my shoulders were my weakest body part. My chest was next in line. Ever since I hired Phile Hernon to help me with a routine he suggested I worked solely with DB's for chest work and avoid any kind of pressing for shoulders. I relied on Side Laterals and the very occasional set of 1 arm DB snatches to bring my shoulders up over the past 6 months. I think chest will come along soon after but it will have to wait till after my shows. I don't think I'll be doing any growing on <2100 cals/day.

    Thanks for the interest in the article series guys. I know a lot of you don't really have BBing goals or ambitions but its nice to be able to give you guys an idea of what goes into getting ready for one of these shows. ALN has been a big part of it for me. Right now recovery is a big issue for me. I was always an insomniac but as I got into the later portion of my prep popping that ETS and sleeping a solid 8-9 hours a night has been clutch. Nitrean mixed with natty PB and warm water (sludge) kept me sane. The diet has been overhauled and I will go into it in more detail in the next article!
