Where does that say, in that statement, you have to eat like **** and put your health at risk in the process?

You can eat big and still watch the fat intake I'm 6'5 265 pounds with a 10% bf with the help of my doctor I will reach
my goal of 300 pounds this year.And my health is great,Just
been to the doctor all vital signs are perfect.Everything is where it should be,So you do your diet and I will eat what I want.Remember SIZE MATTERS
RB (assuming you're the same),
that's an incredible feat; however, we're referring to the jeff lewis's of the sport. he's not 10% bf. hell, it'd be a compliment to say 40-50% bf. the squat is ridiculous but where is the line drawn? health has to have some consideration.
Exactly, RB you're not even close to what i'm talking about. You guys are the bonus to the sport. Someone you can look at and want to attain. Hell watching Beelz is what got me wanting to actually pick up the PL routines. I wasn't trying to insult you guys.
hold up, let's solve something here first. theragingbull, are you the same as from MMI? i'm suspecting not.
No never heard of MMI,When I grow up I want to be like Beelzebub !
lol, um ok. welcome to the board strange ragingbull
Thanks for the welcome,And keep eating and remember size
matters.I don't know about the rest of you but I got into
lifting too be big and you have too eat to get there.
I'm not quite clear on what you're trying to say here...Something about remembering to rest and getting there by sizing your lifts?
You might want to clarify the intent of that message as it comes in pretty damn vague.
All I want to know is these massively lean dudes at 208, even the guy at 225, is how much gear it takes to get that physique with those lift numbers.
i don't believe anyone here is disputing that. of course you have to eat big to get big. but we also have calorie restrictions. eating big doesn't mean eating out of control. the subject of this thread is very clear - morbidly obese powerlifters and the health consequences of letting your bodyweight climb into the 400-500lbs range.Originally Posted by theragingbull
I don't get the high bodyfat thing either, who cares how much you can lift when you're on the verge of dying and look like a guest from the Jerry Springer show.
probably dependant on the time it took them to get there. I don't know enough about the sport to comment further but I wonder if there's a reason for the extra fat in power lifters on averafe or if the strict dieting to stay at some of those low levels are felt to be too restrictive.
blame genetics. gear helps but it ain't transforming anyone into a different bodytype.Originally Posted by ktw
No, but it sure makes things a whole lot easier. Genetics or not, I'm sure some of those guys have fairly large drug regimens.Originally Posted by Beelzebub

j/k bro, I agree
without a doubt. i've talked to a few with their cycles and some are absolutely ridiculous. but i've seen much worse with bodybuilders. guy at my gym is a national competitor in bb'ing and told me he takes anywhere from 1G-2G's per DAY, and he considers that small time to what the pros are taking.Originally Posted by ktw
lol, no. it ain't worth arguing. how about this disclaimer: based on my observations.Originally Posted by motiv8erJR
