    dude i think you are looking great actually!
    when you say you 'like to be big' i understand, trust me..you feel large & in charge
    clothes can hide the bad stuff lol..
    appearance-wise, you LOOK even bigger, when you have a lil more shape and contour to that large frame - even if you are 5lbs or whatever lighter
    w/o clothes - you look even bigger!

    see? Kleen think so too

    first time i noticed this was way back in the day, my buddy always strolled around 225ish, good size but was carrying some fat.
    i dint see him for awhile, he went on a contest prep..next time i saw him, i was in shock.
    dude was just mammoth! i asked him how much he had gained (was a lil naive back in those days lol)..
    he laffed. said man, i weigh 190, just lost 35lbs!
    was chiseled and mean-looking..set me off on a lifetime course of seeking how to make the most of my body shape/image

    I love how working my lower body makes my upper body grow so much but my legs still look small in comparison *rolls eyes*...calves, legs hard as hell for me to build

  3. You know I always thought my legs were skinny. They can always be bigger but for 6ft I feel out 36 jeans. I just have a critical opinion of myself. I always think I can be bigger.

    I have 18 in arms but my torso makes them look small.

    To be honest I have no clue where I want to go. I'd steering to leaning up. Would like to be a lean 220.

    Idk my arms are a little over 16 at the moment and quads are 25. I weigh 170 not sure what my profile says I'm using phone app can't access profile.

    i know this

    i never had that problem haha
    even tho everyone tells me dude you are huge!
    i know the reality is -- i am 5-9 and 200lbs (give ot take a few lbs at any given moment)
    that is a far cry from big. i've trained with monsters, stood next to guys who are say 6-5 and 250lbs lean -- those guys are animals
    Jay Cutler (who i am slightly taller than actually) was guest poser at one of my shows, got a pic of me & him together somewhere in posing trunks -- i am an ant

    there will always be someone bigger
    but - not a lot have my kind of body composition, and size combined
    it is a nice niche

    hey btw - coconut oil in your coffee huh? interesting!

  8. Yeah. Use in protein shakes to sometimes. Great flavor and good healthy fat source.

    5'9" at 200 and lean is pretty damn big if you wanted to you easily be 225-230.

    My gym is pretty weak on serious lifters. Most work arms and traps religiously but little else. You can count on someone doing shrugs daily. Very few squat or DL and of those even less do them properly or with any significant weight.

    I'm by know means a monster or even hyooge but where I train I'm one of the bigger lifters. Now just need to get leaner to show the muscles off.

    heyyyy..i know that gym!


  10. Quads and calves

    Squats - worked up to a PR 425x5. I felt great and if I had a spot might have attempted 7. Weight flew up even at 425. Almost mad at myself for not going for extra.
    One leg squat (on hammer strength squat machine) 4x10
    Hack squat on smith machine 4x10 (30 s rest)
    Leg ext FST7 (finished all sets)

    Superset seated and standing calve raises (no rest) 60 straight reps

    Felt great today strongest since cycle. I attribute this to my squat and DL strategy. One week hard and heavy the next week lighter and high volume. I only free squat once every two weeks. Keeps me fresh.

  11. Two books I've been reading some of you guys might be interested in. Good read and very informative.

    Author Gary Taubes

    "Good calories, bad calories"
    "Why people get fat"

    Both are eye opening.

    Taubes is the Kevin Trudeau of nutrition.

    He's a storyteller who picks & chooses his own selection from the body of evidence to fit his gripping tale. GCBC is what happens when you mix cherry-picked science with fantasy & fiction.

    Don't get bamboozled by his quackary.

  13. lol
    rhizome, is there anything in this realm of bodybuilding, that you find to have no agendized basis?

    i do not diagree with you here, at all
    (is why i don't read 'nutrition' books anymore, stopped long ago)

    but it seems you enjoy pointing out these flawed things a lil too much

  14. Well he admittedly says he is a reporter. So he researches an reports. I see no problem with researching one side and telling the story never told. Much like dietary standards which we all probably agree are wrong. Yet they are still shoved down our throats. That is also very biased based on a handful of individuals and faulty anecdotal science.

    Taubes never claims to be a nutrition expert he merely attempts to shed light on the bull**** being fed to us. Like the idea you can eat carbs freely and at will but fat is bad. Aren't we still being told to limit fat and cholesterol and not carbs? I call bull****.

  15. Total calories today 3100. Prot. 289 g, carbs 229, fat 123g.

    Probably going to add another snack I'm still hungry. Haven't had be bedtime protein shake yet.

    i don't hear that, myself

    no not really
    maybe in the 70s bro

  17. I spent years in college studying to be a dietitian. The national nutrition standards are so out of whack its amazing. Actually the bodybuilding community has been on the cutting edge of nutrition since way before Arnold. It's to bad the government didn't listen.

    Sorry for rant. I used to try to get diabetics to eat right lift weights,etc. it was frustrating which is why I'm a coach now. People actually listen now.

  18. More pointed toward the medical community and government.

    agree to a point
    even within the bodybuilding community, you have no definitive platform where everyone agrees on certain principles
    look at the conversations we have had regarding IF, for example..yet, a large segment of he 'industry' practices this w/o a clue as to what they are doing, or a true understanding of what it really entails
    monkey-see monkey-do does not equal 'cutting edge'

  20. Fair enough. Two sides of a coin I guess.

  21. One thing I have been able to establish. People are very different and should eat for who they are. For instance I am so much more efficient as a fast and gorge eater because a) it suits my lifestyle b) it conforms to my body type and c) it suits my goals.

    I would not however recommend it for a less efficient body type. Some people need frequent eating some don't. An efficient body type (endo) gets a lot more out of what he eats and it tends to sustain him for a lot longer. He does not need to take in large amounts to gain mass and has a tendency towards larger meals. Content still needs to be good though.

  22. True DW. But what I was getting at is more geared toward my frustration with government and medical health and nutrition standards. Most normal people don't do the research or experiment to see what works. They only know what their doctor ( who knows little to nothing of nutrition) or government tells them. This is where I was coming from. That is why I feel I wasted years of my life studying dietetics. Carry on.

    Have a great day.

    agreed, and understand you stance caleb

    the problem here - well, do i really have to say anything about the govt standards for nutrition?
    they can't even figure out other issues that are more pertinent to gvmt, let alone what foods one should eat

    same with the traditional textbook in schooling, and the generic term of institutional 'nutrition' courses

    but understand man - these are simply guidelines of minimum standards, meant to keep the average couch potato from developing third-world diseases and disorders like rickets, or scurvy..nothing more

    certainly not geared to anyone who wants to increase the size of their muscles..or lead an active lifestyle..or make changes in their body comp..

  24. Another thing we have to consider that there is a very large confiict of interest for things like Dairy etc.

    no grown man should be drinking milk from a cow
