  1. Pro's who stay shredded all year round. Could you enjoy that lifestyle?


    Do you think you would enjoy staying shredded all year round? There are some pro's out there that do this. Every month they have a photo shoot with someone and have to stay extremely lean and cut all year due to this as its their job.

    Hypothetically speaking, would you be able to do the same? These are the type of guys who cannot enjoy the simple things in life that we can. I would think it would really **** with your mindset and many go into depression because of it and have serious mood swings. How about the pro's that do shows all year round? Traveling to Europe and Japan taking no breaks. Things like going out for pizza and a beer may happen once a year as a special treat if that. I mean honestly there comes a time where you say who gives a **** if I have 8 pack abs! I'm gonna go out and enjoy a six pack with the guys, shoot some guns or chase women and live a little. The gym will always be there tomorrow!


  2. I cant even get to that point so cant imagine staying there year round

  3. I mean being on gear and having some pizza here and there wont ruin your physique will it? Gear is the answer to these 'pros'

  4. Ive never done. I really don't see the point though

    Great point. You can get away with more on gear. Take some ****ing tren and torch fat like crazy!

    With gear all bets are off as protein synthesis is increased and so much more in the body. Just like @CompeteNPC said, take some tren, and the fat will melt away.

  7. You're a thinker arent you? haha I knew it was your thread before reading it. Now I'm not gonna call myself a pro but I got decent experience. Yes and no, I feel like I'm eating 80% perfect all year, I never eat **** but I tend to miss a meal on my diet once I'm a while. I think I'm quite happy being where I'm at. I'm not looking to compete , never had and never will. There are way more important things for me out there

  8. You guys are missing a HUGE factor here....theyíre genetic outliers. Theyíre the best of the best. Theyíre naturally large and lean. Follow Phil Heath on IG, look at what he eats...even new North American Overall winner Seth Shaw has stayed relatively lean eating whatever he wants and ďcleaning outĒ for the last month plus and still holding 275.

    These guys can stay on their diet 75%% of the time and will look better than us. Iíve seen it first hand. I have to stay 95% on my diet if I want to even stay relatively lean.

  11. Hereís lee priest off season eating whatever he wants versus contest. Clearly heís off anabolics in the off season and it makes a 10000 percent difference

    Sure but its a very small sport and the chances of an average gymguy having better genetics are quite big. The fact that they don't do anything else than focusing on their body , they have full access to everything they need and they take steroids insulin and hgh so much more than the average guy. You're not gonna find many people willing or that has the energy to weigh 300 pounds with 6% body fat. Most people wanna be just a little above average and not a god damn monster that can't move properly and with an increase in heart size.

    And pros arenít either. No one is 300lbs and 6%bf any more. Rami would be the closest thing. Most other guys are sitting in the 250-270 range and not ripped. The guys who stay leaner year round are just better than us. Itís simple as that, they donít have to try as hard to be lean and no, itís not bc of their drugs either. Sure thereís guys who abuse them but look at Matt Porter? Granted heís a nut job and is religious with cardio/diet/training but also naturally a skinny kid so staying leaner is easier for him.

    50% of the guys in here donít do ANY cardio nor train with the intensity needed to a cure that much muscle mass to stay lean. John meadows is another prime example. Admittedly eating like a bird and holding 230 and sun 8%. Only on TRT regimen of test/GH.

    Iím no all star but Iíll look better than most on this board with my sub par genetics on only TRT. Wasnít doing anything crazy here. Just being solid with my diet 90% of the time and doing fasted cardio. Only on 200mg test and 2iu GH here holding 193 in the morning at 5í8ish. I had a refeed/cheat every Saturday of Sunday. It wasnt horrible terrible. I still went out had drinks/treats etc. probably not optimal but I was pretty damn lean and going from where I was. Iím trying to say those guys you say ďwtfĒ to....theyíre just better man, plain and simple. You can point to drugs to make yourself feel better but no...theyíre just better.

  16. Well you just said most people don't do cardio. Regardless of genetics they are taking it to another level. And to believe they aren't abusing steroids insulin etc is just ignorant. Staying lean is not hard for me at all, gaining muscles and staying lean is. I don't think anyone on this board are willing to be as serious as these guys. It's not normal for the average guy to have the time, the money and the mentality to be the best in the world. This (sport) is probably the most expensive one known to man if you want to be the best.

    Aesthetics is something each person have different opinions about, even if everyone could look like Ronnie Coleman and had the money and time, there would only be a few people willing to do it. Most peoples goals are not to be above 200 lbs.

    No I agree the desire and money have to be there, no doubt.

    Guys donít use as much stuff as you think, itís boners in this board and other Internet forums who use too much and look like dog sh!t that make you believe everyone and their brother is juiced out of their minds. Itís their genetic superiority. Why are you willing to accept NBA, NFL, MLB are just better but not BB? Even if you had the desire, money and time you would never be able to throw 100mph. Thatís god given, just like their ability to be 225lbs+ and 6-8% bf is.

    The more people doing something the more competition = harder to be the best. It has a ton to do with genetics but it's one of these things well never know who has the best genetics since 99% lack all these things like money and time and mentality and the few that has the genetics might not even be on steroids or having the desire to compete at that level. I don't know my full potential cause id never touch things like insulin and I would never wanna be that big mostly cause of health reasons and I think most people are in the same boat. We just don't know cause were not willing to go there. I always thought about how many sports there are and I wonder how good people would be if they tried something out of the ordinary. For example basketball is big in America, what if the guys that won't make it decides to play tennis? What are their potential there? We will never know. If everyone knew exactly what to eat, when to rest, when to train and what gear to use and what dosage we would see much more people with amazing astetics.

    Actually itís funny you bring that up. semi off topic but a close fiend of mine is Turkish and we were discussing soccer and the US national team.

    I tried making the point we donít dominant bc we donít play it. Lebron James, Michael Jordan, derek Jeter etc never fully maximized their potential with it bc they chose different paths. In turkey and Europe (most of the world) thatís it, soccer,only choice they have so they do.

    Absolutely, imagine if youd started bowling, who knows right?. (Assume you dont). Us is getting better though and their women especially is definitely top level.

  21. I’m getting to the point where the investment to compete outweighs my priorities in life. I can work with my coach and train but investing thousands of dollars in anabolics and on posing along with traveling and entry fees is just silly. I’m happy just working out for the love of bodybuilding and looking my best.

    Yeah but what if you started bowling and had good genetics? That's the question

    Haha sure but what I mean is that especially in these smaller sports theres little competition. The odds for you being great at bowling is far higher than soccer.

    It takes money. Junior Nationals costs maybe 800-1000 this past summer and I stayed in motel 6 down the road, which worked fine for me this time. The host hotel would have been a few hundred more.

    I drove eight hours one way as well. There's a guy that got plane tickets online for fifty dollars I talked with

  25. The actual shows are the only expensive part. Off season isnít very expensive typically 125 for your card, 125 entry fee and 150-200 on a hotel for 2 nights then gas.

    I can look at average people and their spending. Few weeks ago for the OSU/UM football game the bar tab was $150 and that was for 2 people just drinking and watching football for 5ish hours.

    When you think about it, done rather regularly (at least in the Midwest)
