What’s going on Flex Fans? I am getting into the middle of this contest prep now and really shifting gears. I started getting ready for the Flex Pro at 16 weeks and we're now just under 11 weeks out. I have to say the last five weeks have breezed by and I'm sure before I know it we'll be at the four week mark and I'll be shifting gears once again. The last five week have been smooth in the gym: My strength continues to increase, my weight is slowly coming down and every day that passes I get a little more fired up about hitting the stage with Mr.Olympia, Dexter Jackson!

 When I heard Dexter was doing the show I think I stepped my game up about five levels! I know it’s going to be hard to beat Dexter but if we aren't trying to win why are we even competing? I can say this: I have all the respect in the world for Dexter but I am going to do everything in my power to make sure I get a good comparison with him and then let the cards fall where they may. I just finished a back and ham workout tonight. I am actually hitting hams twice a week to try and bring them up so I like hitting them after back since a lot of the back exercises I do involve the hams as well.



I like sticking to the free weight movements where I can, this was my workout tonight: Close Grip Pulldowns 3 Sets / 8-10 Reps One Arm DB Rows 3 Sets / 10-12 Reps T-Bar Rows 3 Sets / 8-10 Reps Barbell Rows 3 Sets / 8-10 Reps Seated Leg Curl 4 Sets / 20-8 Reps Pyramiding Standing Leg Curl 3 Sets / 8-10 Reps Deadlifts (off the floor) 4 Sets / 10-15 Reps That pretty much wore me out and then I came home to my favorite new meal: Tilapia, Rice, and Avocado. I know it sounds messed up because not many of us like eating fish and that includes me, but for some reason when I'm dieting….man its soooo good!

Alright that does it for me, gotta go smash a meal, look for me on my personal blog as well www.fouadhossabiad.com. Sacrifice Without Regret, Fouad 'Hoss' Abiad
