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

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

Nice!! I've been thinking about starting some oly lifts they just look so fun
07-24-2012 01:14 PM
Oh they are. Nothing feels more powerful than heavy oly lifts. And most people in the gym can't do them.

Looking diesel man. Great progress so far, but keep on the grind.
O and Oly Lifts are definitely legit.

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...

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

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

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

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.

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

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?
