Well I was kind of forced into this style of eating due to alot of security changes throughout the prison system that just simply makes it too much of a hassle. I started doing some reading and this atleast allows me to feel all hope is not lost! The way I do it is eat 2 times per day on the days I lift and 1 time a day when I don't. I honestly think my muscle growth has actually improved. Its like I look thicker and denser. I onestly think I am using my protein better or something. I don't feel sluggish anymore like I used to when eating 4-5 times per day either. But, one need to test things for themselves to see what works the best. Even if my work situation changed I don't think I'd eat more than 3 times per anyway.
Fabulous One, I just looked at some of your vids. You are a GIANT! Very impressive dude!
sorry guys i wasnt really trying to start s**t with anyone but was trying to stick up for my style of training as everytime i see a thread come up on dino training someone is bashing it and making stupid jokes. oh, and i do not recall bashing Coleman even a tiny bit. he is a very strong BB and started out as a powerlifter. I was refering to the lightweights who spend more $$ and time on supps and gym memberships than on food and pig iron. but sorry to get you youngsters all riled up.
Don't worry about defending your style of training man. Just work hard on whatever you do and work towards your goals. If you do this, your results will speak for themselves, and when people ask you "hey man how do you make such good gains or how did you get so strong?" then you can tell them. This way they will be open to your ideas because its on their terms. This way you will be able to teach rather than preach or try to force them to see what you are saying.
I'm guilty. I have to admit it, I love supplements. If I had unlimited money I'd build myself a concrete building with nice lighting, heat and air conditiong, a level floor, and plenty of space. Next I would go over to Elitefts and have Jim Wendler build me an ultimate gym. I'd have it equipped for powerlifting, olympic lifting and strongman. Next, I'd buy two more freezers and buy another grass fed beef to fill up one and in the other I'd fill it up with free range chickens. With the rest of my money I'd go straight and buy loads of Cod Liver oil, Wheat Germ Oil, Liver tablets, and Brewers Yeast. After those I'd load up on Cordygen5, Ragnarok and all the Get Diesel products. Buts that just me!
ya your right. sorry everyone.
It's cool man. Being passionate about you're style is commendable. I respect your devotion to the sport. Keep up the hard work Mr Flintstone!
Hang in there and stay tough. Remeber there is a guy in Ky training in a dirty cold barn as heavy as he can. You know what I think about when its just me out there in the cold? I think about the story of Reg Park having to sweep the snow off his weights back in England in the 40s. He lifted in the dark and winter cold all by himself and built the strength and body of Hercules. he let nothing stop him. I sometimes pretend I am Reg...sad that a 32 year old man still pretends huh?
I lift 200 lbs with the preacher bar in one hand while doing a raised hamstring stretch, as well as carry a fridge on my back.
Blah blah blah. Whatver works to get the results you want, is the proper type of training. Thanks for a useless thread!
yab daba doooo!!!!
Hey have you tried the Prowler yet? I have an old wheelbarrow that I had been pondering on how to convert it. I find the sled dragging along with some light bodyweight exercises plus some bar drill to be the best warmup for me. I broke my makeshift sled the other night for the last time and I was just wondering about the prowler.
I think this whole thread started off on a bad foot,
That said, im sorry if i upset you, my post was more meant to poke a little fun at some of the posters ..ie ..
Who were very obviously making no efforst themselves to be relationable (and really, just being a str8 up jackass). My post wasnt meant to implicate everyone and definitly NOT all who utilize power lifting as their staple in training - i think it has as MUCH merit, as bodybuilding, conditioning, flexibility, sports training, etc.we are lifting in our garages sheds and basements away from you 24 hour fitness losers. most of us warm up with what you fools lift for your top sets. hey fab one do you ever do one arm barbell curls? f**king brutal man.
To each their own, ive lots of respect for people who train with warm up sets that i use for my top sets! But, I dont mind a little retaliation if they are going to say it insultingly as well.
