    Nice. I just watched Bigger, Stronger, Faster last night. Good to see some of the Westside boys on there. Have you trained with them before? I'd love to go for a bench session one day.

    Its a good movie, informative for the general public.

    I have not trained at Westside Barbell although i am only 3 hours away from their facility.

    A few people i train with have made the "pilgrimage".

    We used to send videos in a few years ago so that Louie could critique our training and give us advice. One video in particular was me lifting out, another couple of guys spotting and my mate board pressing. Louie responded "Why does the guy lifting out have gyno? And you guys are too skinny and ALL need to double your dosage." I don't think he was too impressed!

    I'm so tempted to cross over to the darkside. I want to bench 600lbs first though. The stronger I get without assistance, the stronger I'll be when I jump on!

    Sorry, but thats a poor response. He seems, from his interviews, to be a big supporter of "assisted" lifting.

    And obviously we looked like we needed extra assistance. If you're going to train and be the best you can, then gearing is required

    Im sure we could run in circles debating the subject, regardless, in my humble opinion it is irresponsible for a perceived authority figure to be so cavalier about the use of steroids.

    Gear; in reference topowerlifting can mean a few different things.

    I competed again yesterday. I had no intention of benching and was only there to assist with the meet (suit handling, loading plates etc.) but was encouraged to bench by some fellow lifters, just for the fun of it. I'd already lent my soft suit to another lifter and I hadn't registered so whatever I benched wouldn't count as far as records go. I had not trained for this (I've only shirted up once since the pro bench) and had no idea what would happen when I got under the bar. I ended up getting a 10kg/22lb PR, benching 250kg! (550lbs) BUT I missed 260kg AGAIN! I nearly dropped it on my face Unfortunately I don't have any video footage but I will hopefully have a few pictures to put up when they're emailed to me. Another comp is coming up in 8 weeks. I better bench 260kg at this comp or else I will cry.

    Thanks mate! Yes, unfortunately I'm stuck at 260kg. Twice it has broken me! I'm alright as far as my training goes for this next comp, but I don't know what to do diet-wise. I'm trying to prevent my body fat from creeping up again by cutting carbs (cereals, breads, starchy carbs etc.) after lunch. I'll see what impact it has on my strength. I train at night so may consider throwing in 250grams or so of sweet potato an hour before I train. I'm sure I will be hitting you up for some opinions in the near future. I want to be 110kg (245lbs) by new year but must keep the mud down!

    At my funeral! Lucky the spotters are quick at ESP. I can't wait to get the photos. Apparently I look pretty squashed! My mate squatted 415kg, drug-free. It's a new Australian record. He's a big boy!

    This sounds like a shallow rep but you may consider adding AP or Pslin to your carb layout to inhibit adipose gain... If you need anything, 'holler at me'

    Yeah, I've been using AP for a few months (3-4 a day) and I feel it has prevented the body fat increase I had last time I was bulking up. Good stuff!
