Marc Lobliner's epic IFBB pro card journey

Week 13—214 Days Out!

Weight on 2-1-11: 198.5 pounds.

AMAZING is one word to describe this prep. I have more energy than ever, feel better than ever and am actually increasing calories and getting stronger! WHAT IS GOING ON!?! I am loving the new Scivation pre-workout formula, SCIVATION NOVEM, coming soon to, and it has helped propel me to new levels of performance and energy, even within 4 weeks of a contest! WOW!

I am eating perfectly, training like a possessed MADMAN, and traveling and working like a workaholic. I am also finding time to rock the fatherhood thing and be an awesome DADDY! Kami’s birthday was last weekend and we had an amazing time playing soccer, doing sprints and having a party at Little Gym. My life is awesome!

Some update pics!

My wife Katie is also competing on April 30 for her first time and is in the zone as well. Pre-workout, 1,3 Dimethyl was weird for her. SCIVATION NOVEM does not have it in the formula so she is also benefiting from it. Training with her when I am home, which isn’t often, is a dream come true! Here is Katie!

I am up even more calories and am at over 200 grams of carbs per day. This is unlike anything I have ever done. I am getting drier, harder and losing even more fat! This will be the best Lobliner ever! I plan on wowing some people!
