Day 386: While I Was Sleeping...


I lost the auction for my "old camera" on eBay by $2.50!

Seems like a "bid sniper" got me in the last few minutes (while I was asleep) which is quite a common practice on eBay. I am so desperate now to get my "old camera" back I started racking my brain this morning on what other options I have.

I Had A Brainwave!

How's this for a "genius idea"! Take my old camera back to Olympus to get repaired! What an amazing concept, I'd never even considered this back on Day 361 when I "destroyed" my old camera.

So today I did exactly that. I took my camera into the Olympus head office in Osaka and was told it would only cost ¥13,000 to fix! They will even deliver it to my apartment when it's ready, which should be by December 12, 2007.

I am so excited at the prospect of having my old camera back that I am now on a "mini mission" to do it justice by ramping up my training in the next 14 days in anticipation of my new/old camera arriving!

5DSA Update

Today I decided to take the day off from 5DSA Training to give my quads a rest from the destruction I have wreaked on them in the past 3 days. However, I will be back in full force tomorrow and Saturday to finish the Five-Day Structural Attack (5DSA) by doing 35 and 40 minutes straight on Barbell Squats.

Right now my quads are in so much agony its hard to even get off my chair (let alone ride my bike to work!). I have a feeling that the "proof will be in the pudding" come Saturday when I compare my 5DSA Day 1 stats to the Day 5 stats. Judging by my Squat numbers yesterday this is unconventional approach is working.

Until tomorrow...

Eat Clean,
Shred Hard,
Think BIG!

P.S. Lilla and Suzette, here are my quads! As you can see, still a lot of work to do!

Below are my Day 386 pics for November 29, 2007: Mission 4 - Day 11 of 125.


Lilla said...

Don't know what you're talking about - they look pretty good to me! ;)

Debbie said...

I've got to agree with Lilla, your legs are very strong, Adam! Will be curious how your legs react to your new program.


Suzette said...

oh yeah, looking good! ;)
What is your favorite quad exercise?

Michael said...

Adam, I'm really going to be interested in your comments after you finish this quad challenge because it really interests me. Your quads look pretty decent...not as good as mine, but great nonetheless (just kidding about the "not as good as mine" part :-) ).

Hi Adam,
Would something like your Squat Fest help out a female? Meaning, in my case, what I want to do it lose volumn, not put it on...would I then do the volumn of reps without weight, or use weights? High reps without weights? What?

Am so amazed at your dedication and pain endurance. Wishing you all success!

Adam Waters said...

Thanks Lilla, Debbie and Suzette! My favorite now is definitely Barbell Squats as they are the best for mass building.


Adam Waters said...

Hi Michael, I'll definitely have a full report tomorrow mate, stay tuned!

Adam Waters said...

Hi Lynda, to improve definition I would stick to Muscle Rounds in Surge as I found this technique really slimmed down my legs during Mission 1. High volume with short rest periods definitely worked for me and I believe that would work for most people, men or women.

You look really good and you have clearly done great things with your body. It looks like you might have a slight spinal misalignment. I would recommend seeing a NUCCA Chiropractor. It will improve your overall health and posture and help you as you continue body building.

Best Regards,

Thanks David, I'll do that when I'm in the US in March.
