  7. Let me shave the rug off I'll look lean. The hair is nice during a bulk it makes me look more cut. But when im lean it hides the lines...

    I had more weight before that but the guy messed up the video and I was not able to repeat that set. My goal is 135 soon.

  8. looking great man!

  9. Update.

    Unhappy with my bench lately so I am switching to speed training for a bit. Today I basically did 10-15 working sets speed bench with various weight, chains, and Bands.

    In between sets I let my ADHD roll and would just do random exercises. Lots of rows holding at the chest, yolk walks, box jumps, push/pull the sled. Stretching.

    Added some updated pics so I can keep comparing them to past progress pictures. Weight fasted am 176

    On a side note pulled 450 DL raw grip (chalk) after squats Monday. That's a PR for raw grip. Then failed at 425 after.... Again I did 6 working ATG sets of squats first.

    Greatly appreciated. Lack of updates due to house projects/work. It keeps me motivated to have this thread.

    It turns out moving 20tons of sand, brick, and limestone is a good work out.... #runningwiththewheelbarrel

  12. Manual labor is no joke!

  13. Been a while since I had a good update. This is from last thursdays work out.

    weight 172.

    Power snatches PR!!! 195


    Summer is almost over, I dont gain fat easily so I will most likley start to add calories slowly. My overall goal is to stay same bf% and get to 190. I was there before I got injured and I am hoping muscle memory help! My training has kept my strength very respectable to where I was even 200+ Now that I go to my new gym, The only problem is affording the food it takes for me to gain clean weight...

  14. Nice!! I've been thinking about starting some oly lifts they just look so fun

    Oh they are. Nothing feels more powerful than heavy oly lifts. And most people in the gym can't do them.

    The benefits that I find transfer to my other areas of training/fittness is unmatched. Explosive power, endurance, stamina, and coordination.

  16. Updated pics.

  17. Honestly don't know how you could improve where you're at haha

  18. Bigger, faster, and stronger! Appreciate the support my friend!

  19. Looking diesel man. Great progress so far, but keep on the grind.

    O and Oly Lifts are definitely legit.

  20. Thanks! I weight about the same as when I started working out 8-9 years ago...

    I bulked for the first years but not to dirty, then dirty bulked. That put me at around 210. Then I cut to around 180ish. I stopped yoyo dieting and now I try to make slow consistent quality progress. Staying fairly lean. Cutting 30lbs sucked. It took 6-7 months of hard dieting. I would rather just avoid that situation. Oh and lost TONS of strength-size in the process...

  21. New DL PR today 365+ 2" wide bands on each side

    No idea how much those resist, but I failed every past attempt at it.

  23. First of all I'm not even on page two but damn congrats u are beautiful lol no homoeroticism there keep it up, I am trying for lean and strong too and just started a log/run and am gonna Try to adopt some of your training/dieting methods. So I'll be on this thread often.

  24. ^ yupp he's got the best of both worlds right now. Strong but also cut as hell. A great balance of the two is my ultimate goal as well

  25. Finished reading, keep the log up, they are self motivating, and make you want to be stronger and leaner

  26. Cardio is huge on abs too, and you do huge cardio 5k isn't something anybody on here can proudly say they do as their cardio session

  27. Kickin ass man!

    That's why I dig AM - wanna learn about getting shredded - there's some prime examples around here

  28. Appreciate the support! I will always answer any questions, and be happy to do so.

    IMO typical body building is out dated (especially for us natty guys). I dislike low carb diets, do whole body work outs, and listen to my body. I have trained with plenty "unnaturals" I respect every ones decision as long as mine is respected as well. I am much smaller than SOME OF THEM, but almost as strong, and pound per pound I am much stronger. Work ethic goes a long way. But in all fairness I am miles behind many, I just want to see what I can get my body to accomplish.

    5k is only like 3.5miles. Personally good music, loud in the head phones, and a special herbal medication make a 5k pass like an... Herbal medication.

  29. That's awesome I have that herbal medication too that's how I've been able to get myself to an easy mile... Well not because of it but because of going to the gym afterwards and just focusing and pounding it out and then treadmill afterwards, 3 months ago I couldn't run a straight mile but now I can kill it

  30. First post, saw this thread first and I'm really impressed .. The amount you can lift for that size is amazing keep it up!
    Questions on your cardio.. How often do you do the 5K? Do you believe in losing muscle from cardio?
