I have been using HMB religiously for about 1.5 years now and it has made a tremendous difference in helping me achieve my goals. In May 2007 I won the Overall Iowa Championship, but failed to win my Pro Card, taking 2nd place in that division. Due to an injury I could not compete in 2008, then late that year I started using HMB to help with recovery and gains in muscle mass. In May 2009, I took 2nd in the Pro Division again and have been pushing myself for the past year, in preparation of winning this year. In January of 2009, when I started to diet for my competition, I weighed 212 lbs……as of right now I weigh 227 lbs and am getting ready to start my diet again. That is correct, I have gained over 15 lbs of lean muscle mass in 1 year (btw, did I mention I am a natural competitor? That’s right, no drugs! ) I am as lean, possibly even a little leaner than I was at this time last year. In May 2009 I entered the competition at 191 lbs, I am planning on competing at roughly 205 this year, so as you can guess, I feel this extra size will put me over the top. This year, along with taking HMB, I changed my workout routine to a strictly HEAVY workout every single day. Every single body part, including abs! My workout consisted of 5 days per week, 1 body part per day…..6 to 7 sets per body part, 4-6 reps per set….taking myself to positive failure on every single set ! Not only did I gain weight but my strength went up as well. I am now squatting over 600lbs, deadlifting over 550 lbs and benching in the neighborhood of 375 lbs ( I have never been a good bencher, so that is a lot of weight for me ). Oh yeah, did I mention I am 40 years old and I am as big and as strong as I have ever been! I have three weeks left of eating regular food and then the diet will start. I will diet roughly 14 weeks to get ready for the contest and then, hopefully, the rest is history!
