My Bodybuilding Chest Workout on Tuesday

2. Incline dumbbell press

80 lbs x 15 reps
100 lbs x 10 reps
120 lbs x 8 reps
130 lbs x 8 reps

Lifetime best weight: 160 lbs x 5 reps.

I decided that I wasn’t going to go for more.  Mike O’Hearn and Chris Cormier were doing 170s.  That day.

3. Flat dumbbell press

80 lbs x 10 reps
100 lbs x 10 reps
115 lbs x 7 reps

4. Decline hammer press

230 lbs x 15 reps
270 lbs x 10 reps
360 lbs x 8 reps
360 lbs x 9 reps

Lifetime best weight: 540 lbs x 12 reps – I can still d this on a good day!

5. Incline flyes on arched incline bench

45 lbs x 10 reps
55 lbs x 10 reps
65 lbs x 10 reps
70 lbs x 10 reps

Lifetime best weight: 100 lbs x 12 reps – I stopped there to make sure I didn’t compromise form and turn it into a press.

6. Dumbbell triceps kickbacks

45 lbs x 10 reps
65 lbs x 10 reps
75 lbs x 10 reps
75 lbs x 10 reps

Lifetime best weight: 100 lbs x 12 reps – a little body english but not a s much as you’d expect.

Memorial Day Muscle Beach International

Muscle Beach Venice bodybuildingThis photo is from me at the 2007 Memorial Day Muscle Beach International contest: I got 2nd place in the Heavyweights.

I weighed in at 215 for this one.  In the gym around 243 a couple weeks before.  Measured bodyfat at 4.5%.

I came back at July 4th to win the Superheavies, those are the photos above.

I still did indulge in burgers and dogs after this show. Back on the diet the next day though!

Jason’s a really great trainer. I do the virtual personal training program because I know form, I just don’t have the knowledge to build my own plan. Jason’s always been very responsive whenever I have questions. He doesn’t give you a cookie-cutter plan; I have a few physical limitations and my gym doesn’t have the widest variety of equipment and he was very understanding and helped find the right exercise substitutions. I found the diet plan really helpful because it’s flexible enough where I can try different foods, but specific enough about how much and when to eat so I actually see results. Be clear with your goals and stick to what he says and you’ll definitely be happy with where you are in just a few months.

If you’re looking for rapid transformation success Jason Kozma is the best personal trainer available! Very happy with the guidance, accountability, and humor he provided during our training time together. He genuinely cares about getting his clients the best results possible. If you are not in the LA area he also has an excellent online personal training program. Highly recommend.

I live in Chicago so I used Jason's online personal training. It was a great experience especially for the price. He would monitor my workouts each week and let me know if I should be able to go heavier on an exercise based on everything else I was doing. He'd also review my recorded diet and tell me where to tweak things. He was also good about reminding me to update my weight and progress pics, and he'd adjust the workouts or diet based on that. He was honest about how much weight/muscle I should expect to gain and didn't try to make huge promises just to get business.
