*** Members' Interview with dazc ***

dazc, a member for 6 years now, is happy to answer your questions this week.  dazc is also getting ready for his first competition and you can check out his journal here

The usual things apply: please use this topic to ask him any questions about  lifestyle, training, diet and progress, or anything else.  Please, nothing too personal or invasive. Please bear with him and give him time to reply.

dazc, thanks for agreeing to take part in this interview. A few questions from me to start with:

1) Can you give us a brief rundown of how you got into working out and how long you've been training?

2) How is your competition prep coming along?

3) Can you recommend a film?
 
4) What car do you drive?

Thanks!!

    Excellent choice.
     
    Daz, I often hear you talking about eating to bursting. What do you eat in these mega meals?

    My username has nothing to do with my religious beliefs.....

    Daz - why were you called MCL in this column until a few hours ago?

    Who does your contest prep?

    Seriously, tell us a bit about your job - you burn a lot of calories in work and a lot of calories doing cardio, and eat comparatively a lot of calories as well.

    Does it ever get hardgoing?

    Do you ever think you'd prefer a desk job? And the metabolism of a dormouse's ear?

    How nervous are you about your first show?

    What other things you haven't done yet do you plan to do in life (not just bodybuilding)?

    Can you build a dwarf wall conservatory with a solid brick back wall up for me if I buy a dismantled secondhand one off ebay?

    Thanks!!

     
    hi hazel, thanks for the interview,  i should start by apologising to everyone for being grumpy over the past couple of months.  im dieting lol
     
    i started training nearly ten years ago, i had always wanted to get bigger, but up untill that point had been too busy with other things, cycling, swimming, motocross, trails riding, karting, skiing have all been hobbies, some still are.  some i have been very good at and could have gone far, others i enjoyed but was only average.  things fall by the wayside as your life changes, or money doesnt allow.
     
    competition prep, is i think going ok.  i have had some pretty major ups and downs, but i guess thats normal
     
    last film i watched that i really enjoyed, that took me by suprise was 'the hunting party'  normally i cant stand richard gere but in this he was very good.
     
    i currently drive a VW touareg. and ride a yamaha warrior

    Daz, I often hear you talking about eating to bursting. What do you eat in these mega meals?


    a typical sort of bulking meal for me would have been say- large lasagne, couple of jacket spuds, veg, large garlic bread or maybe 3 buttered bread buns,  couple of slices of cheese cake, with lots of double cream. a cleaner example would be couple of large chicken breasts cooked in garlic butter and olive oil, with rice (250g uncooked easy) stirfry veg with lots of mixed oils, couple of bread buns, large grapefruit, and some other fruits.

    What sets/reps work best for you?

    What does your bulking diet look like?


    i have done reps in the 12-15 (and higher) range now for quite a while, with more sets, 4-5 and 2-3 exercises.  For years i would chase the big lifts though i always worked in the 8-12 rep ranges, but this led to way too many injuries, lots of which are ongoing.  this was a combination of work, training and the various sports i have put my body through over the years.
     
    bulking diet was never set in stone, was simply as much decent food as i could possibly eat at any one time, with as much junk after that as i could eat, 8 or more times a day.  when i couldnt eat then i would use shakes and smoothies.
     
    the JSS super smoothie on here (bulker) written by james played a large part in my diet

    my contest prep is all my own work. . . . . . lmao!
     
    i have a building company, always employing between 5-8 full time staff as well as 3-4 subbies usually.  i try to work in the higher end of the market, though at the moment will take on all projects.  I am FMB registered as a masterbond builder.  i am registered with the NHBC as a new housebuilder.  in previous years i have done my own speculative developments of new houses, and barn conversions as well as work for clients.
     
    on average i work ten hours a day monday to friday,  and 6-7 hours saturday and sunday.  Its a difficult time to be in, and i face more and more competition from guys working out of a van, for cash, with no overheads such as public liability, contractors all risks, trade backing etc etc.  But lots of people would take a gamble with the most valuble thing they will ever own, and get these people in, than spend an extra 15% and get the backing that comes with a firm like mine.
     
    My job is very stressfull, building work is always stressfull and emotional for clients, and while i do my very best, i am available 24 hours a day for them, and i often take not only the things from the work, but also the stresses of their personal lifes, passed along and taken out on myself.  I have seen a marriage breakup from the stress of a full house remodel, when they tried to live in a static on site with children to save money.  not fun.
     
    a deskjob would be great. . .  for a few months.  but i would get bored very quickly.  I do regret not having made more of myself, in terms of my earning power though. i was above average academically though at the time choose instead to go to work after a levels not university.
     
    doing in again i would choose a career in medicine.
     
    i am very nervous about my first show!
     
    i would really love to get to being mortage free, and do alot of travelling, maybe 2 months a year to a single place.  there are so many great places in the world, i would love to see as many as possible
     
    i could give you a tutorial, and you could do it yourself ??

    i love the warrior mate, i think it will be with me for a long time.  Bikes are a big passion of mine, ill post up some pictures of other creations of mine in this thread as well.  Custom built bikes and streetfighters are my biggest love of all.

    i do indeed!  here she is -

    breeds i like, obviously rotties,  DBD, westies.  i love all dogs, but those are the only three i would set out looking for.  But i spend quite a bit of time at the rehoming centre, and im sure once my house is in order (middle of an extension)  i will be homing some more dogs in need of love and care.

    here is a picture of me, about 6 months after i started training specifically to gain weight.  Before that my sport was skiing (which i still love as a holiday)  before that it was cycling and swimming, alongside the motorsport stuff.
    I have a very weird feeling looking at this picture, at the time i had very little concern at all about what i looked like, or how i was built.  I could pull girls on a night out like noone you have ever met, and dont ever once remember thinking about wether my arms looked ok in the tshirt i had on lol.  The futher you get with bbing, the more image concious you become, and you start to feel tiny or fat, or both.  Its actually hard to look at this photo for me now, based on how i think about my body now.

    heres where i was on my cut before righty took over after i decided to do a show.  Up to this point i had dropped half a stone, but lost some muscle, as i had carbs way too low, and cardio was way too intense.
