Gears or no gears?
Either way, good work. You'd look pretty ripped with a tan.

No gears for six years. This is my undieted "walking around condition"

Thanks for the compliments!! I train at home and never get much feedback (other than from my wife).

props for a job well done,
thank your maker for those freaken awesome genetics
your lean, how strict is your diet?
or shall i say, what does your normal daily diet look like?
07-04-2009, 05:01 PM
Yes, diet and supplement regimen would be helpful, thanks!
07-04-2009, 05:25 PM
I'm a vegetarian (lacto ovo). I get my protein from whey and some eggs. I eat a ton of carbs (bagels, breads, oatmeal). Honestly my diet is not strict at all. The only supplements I have used consistantly for the last few years are a multi vitamin pak and creatine mono. I do take flax and olive oil as well. I have trained at home in my garage for the last four years using a fairly basic set up.

Jeeze bro. If that is 40, you definitely have not had any drop in test LOL.
Your quads and legs look solid as hell.
What is your actual routine like?
props on the results.

Mon: chest and bi's
Bench press: warmups-135 for for 10, 185 for 8, 245 for 4.
work sets: 275 for 8, 315 for 8-10, 315 for 8.
Incline bench (wide grip): 245 for 8-10, and two more sets usually at 225 for about eight reps.
Flys: 3 sets of 20 using 50 lbs dumbells. I don't have anything heavier. Yes it sucks.
I usually finish chest with a couple of sets of dips (20-30 reps).
dumbell curls 3-4 sets of 50 lbs db's for 10-20 reps
Hammer curls 3- 4 sets with 50 lbs db's
I end the session with a cset or two more of dips (20-30 reps)
Tues: legs- I do two different rountines depending on how my knees feel.
1. warmups sets: bar for 20 reps , 135, for 20 reps, 185 for 8 reps, 245 for 4 reps. work sets: 275 for 8-10, 325 two sets of 8-10 reps that's it.
2. bar for 20 reps. six sets of 135 for 20 reps.
I don't do any direct hamstring work. my low back just can't take it anymore. I also quit doing calf work. I really have no means to do them effectively at home. I'm kind of pissed because I used to train them hard. After not doing them for three plus years they look exactly the same.
Wed: off day
Thurs: shoulders and triceps
lateral raises: three sets of 15-20 reps
rear delt raise lying on bench: three sets of 15-20r reps
Seated millitary press: 155 for 8, 175 for 8, 185 for 8.
I usually do a couple of sets of dips (20-30 reps) as a delt finisher.
Triceps: overhead rope extensions 3 sets of 15-20
Pushdowns: 3 sets of 8-20
skullcrushers with 50 lbs dumbells 10-20 reps. Bar skull crushers really bother my bad elbow.
I end the session with one or two more sets of dips (20-30 reps).
Pulldowns/or pullups 3 sets
seated rows three sets
bent rows three sets of 225-245 for 8-10 reps.
Shrugs: 3 sets of 315 for 8-10 reps.
I don't do any ab work...ever.

Nice routine. Hell you trump many a 40 year old, though there is a 50 year old on here who posted last year who was huge! Thats probably you in 10 years lol.
Nice workouts, and as I said before great results. And on a no meat diet as well. I couldnt survive without meat myself. Then again, no reason a person cant run without it.

There was a guy I knew who was in his 60's when I still trained at a gym who made me feel bad about myself.

Good lord! That's some incredible size and strength for a natty lifter, let alone being a vegetarian. I can just imagine what you'd look like after a gear cycle and a couple lbs of beef every day. You'd be a monster.

Hey Devil, I think we know each other. This is Greg W. Just moved back to Oregon a few months ago, living on the southern Oregon coast. You still have an awesome physique! BTW, I'm hanging at around 264 lbs, you might say I've been in a bulk phase for the last four years!
