Marc Lobliner's epic IFBB pro card journey

Update 4—277 Days Out!

SHREDDED GLUTES AT 225lbs! Yes, I said it. I have been eating as much as possible and allowing wiggle room, such as pizza and a brownie sundae for my birthday, and good-ole NC BBQ AND OF COURSE Thanksgiving! Yet, I remain between 220 and 225 with shredded glutes. I am officially at the point where I need to eat and eat a LOT!

This week, my brother and his family came over and we enjoyed holiday fun together. I always say, bodybuilding should enhance and not take over one’s life. Unless competing, ENJOY the holidays, ENJOY good food with the family and ENJOY life! Life is about balance and bodybuilding can fit in with your other hobbies and goals!

Here are my current shots! Since I am focusing on my legs, here are some new ones!

I am still looking to gain some size and rock the North Americans on September 2 of next year. BUT, the main thing is, can my family handle, and are they deserving of another prep? The simple act of eating dinner with my family is a blessing. I am not yet sure if I am willing to give this up. I need some more time to think. FAMILY is way more important than a pro card!

It worked for the back, now it is going to BLOW UP my legs! How exciting!

My diet stays at this level. BUT, I will be adding in MORE free meals until I put on some fat. Might as well enjoy this bulk! For a refresher...

56 grams protein, 15 grams fat and 60 grams carbs per meal with a special post workout formula to be released later. My typical day of meals assuming I train at 4pm looks like this:

  • Meal 1 (7am): Scivation egg pancake made with 1 cup egg whites, 1 scoop Scivation Whey and cinnamon blended, cooked like a big pancake! 1 cup (measured uncooked) oatmeal, 99g blueberries, 30g almond butter.
  • Meal 2 (10am): SLUDGE! 2.5 scoops Scivation Whey, 1 cup oatmeal, 99g blueberries, almond butter.
  • Meal 3 (12:30pm): 8oz chicken, 240g brown rice (cooked), 1 tbsp macadamia nut oil.
  • Meal 4 (2:30pm PREWORKOUT): SLUDGE! 2.5 scoops Scivation Whey, 1 cup oatmeal, 99g blueberries, almond butter.
  • Meal 5: Lean meat like 96% lean ground beef, 8oz sweet potato, 30g almond butter, broccoli.
  • Meal 6: Scivation egg pancake made with 1 cup egg whites, 1 scoop Scivation Whey and cinnamon blended, cooked like a big pancake! 1 cup (measured uncooked) oatmeal, 99g blueberries, 30g almond butter.

Marc, I'm so glad there are people like you in the world to look up to. Devoted, intense, and with an unreal work ethic. I've been lifting for 18 months and started originally just to lose weight. Im down from 320 to 250 and made great strength gains. I've decided now to work towards doing my first contest. Im still about 28% body fat so I have a long way to go, but you are one of my biggest inspirations. Thank you.

PS - "sludge" rules!
