Yummy! Training videos 84Mightymatt youtube About me My name is Matthew Morgan i started out training and working out as a way in my option to save my life. I remember when i was young watching the movie predator and twins both with arnold in them and wanting to look like that and be that strong. Fast forward to when i was 18-25 and i had done none of that and had developed an addiction to alcohol and drugs. After 7 years of addiction i knew i had to do something to save my life. I was 250 pounds and extremely unhealthy. I woke up on day in December and decided this is not how i was going to live my life anymore, put on my coat and just ran in the cold for a few hundred feet lol. But i keep at it and joined a gym and fell in love with the discipline it gave me and the daily rewards from pushing my self to new levels of strength and fitness. I now had a new healthy addiction the i was and am proud of and it has keep me clean and sober for over 3 years now. I am training right now to compete in my first power lifting competition the 2012 APF IL Raw Power Challenge on December 9 this year.I am hoping to hit a raw elite total in the 198 pound weight class.Becoming and elite ranked power-lifter has been something i have been striving for since a started and i think i my finally be able to achieve it My current best gym lifts are 410 bench 540 squat and 590 dead lift. I also plan on competing and some bodybuilding comps next year. My motto is train life a power-lifter look like a bodybuilder just because you might be training for power thats no excuse to get fat!!! I have had the support of my family especially my brother who i train with and a wonderful girl friend in all of this. Diet Well i think that proper nutrition and everybit if not more important then proper training. I have always agreed with the saying you cant out train a bad diet. My diet consist of 7 600 hundred calorie meals a day with roughly 35 grams of protein in each one. I raise and lower my carb intake if i need to gain of drop weight.Lean protein complex carbs and healthy fats make up almost every one of my meals, but i allow myself a few meals a week to just enjoy some good eating whether it be ice cream or a double cheese burger. I think its important to sometime just eat something you really like and not worry about the nutrition. Typical daily diet 6 am oatmeal with peanut butter and American pure whey isolate 9 am 1 cup cous cous and 4 large eggs 12 am chicken salad on whole grain bread and some almonds 3 pm peanut butter and jelly sandwich with a American pure whey protein shake 6 pm (preworkout meal) Whole grain waffles and 3 whole eggs 3 egg whites with sugar free syrup and margarine 7 pm hit the gym 830 pm post workout shake (whey isolate and waxy maize) 9pm chicken breast almonds and 2 slices of toast 11 pm American pure whey Micellar Casein strawberry and 2 tbsp of natural peanut butter Training I always train hard and will focus my workout around one of the big compound lifts. I train four times a week doing an upper lower A/b split. If i don't leave the gym pouring sweat it didn't have a good workout. I usually train my main lifts ie bench or dead lift in sets of 3 taking 1 min 30 second breaks in between. I try to get 4-5 sets of 3 and add 10 to the bar the following week if i do it. My motto is train life a power-lifter look like a bodybuilder. For the assistance exercises ie curls dumbbell bench i train 3-4 sets 8-6 reps if i get more then 8 on the first set i will add weight.
