Needing advice

  1. PROness, you are a big boy but I think you need to reassess your BF% slightly and like the well educated members who were quoted on here stated...cardio always has a place in your fitness goals. I myself am sitting at about 225 right now and nowhere near single digits and my pic looks a bit better than yours...and I'm 53.

    I will give ProNess credit though, being 200 & having a glimmer of abs... It ain't all bad...

    Lift the fŁcking weight from the floor, or leave it on the ground. The thoughts are supposed to be daunting. The pain is meant to be tormenting.

    I agree, but just because he needs that amount does not mean he should advise others who weigh less to eat that much.

    And the cardio comments were just plain ridiculous, cardio is so much more than just a caloric expenditure and I can't personally fathom why someone who was presented with so much information showing the positives of cardio while bulking would still fight so adamantly against it.

    I'm so down for cardio.

    I despise LISS but its mandatory for my particular career choice. HIIT on the other hand is a dear friend, especially with the Prowler.

    nothing wrong with some conditioning work to get the heart in better shape. but dont rely on cardio to prevent fat. diet is what prevents fat. if you want to gain mostly lean mass look into things like intermittent fasting or carb backloading. several of my training partners are on those programs. they range in weight from 195lbs at 5'5" to 280 at 6"2". they are all getting leaner and getting stronger with either diet.
    you can call me "ozzie" for short.

    buy the book.

    there are only short articles that elude to what to do online. there is a lot in the book that you will not find online. an this is not a short term diet, it is a life long nutritional plan so it is worth that small amount to be leaner and stronger for the rest of your life.

My workouts are intense and spot on, I train Monday Tuesday Thursday Friday- Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday are my cardio days, I do things like jog or box on a heavy bag. Like I Said I'm bulkin right now at 4200 calories a day, but recently I've been LOSING weight??? Wtf?? I eat very clean every 2-3 hours with only one cheat meal a week usually on Saturday night. Any advice or comments? Thanks
    How are you judging this weight loss? Has it been consistent on a week to week basis (i.e: about 1-2 pounds lost per week totalling 5-8 pounds down in a month or two), or has it just been an occurrence recently.

    If the answer is recently, your weight will fluctuate based on several factors.

    If its been consistent then you are either not eating enough or having digestive/absorptive issues.

    If its been consistent, and your foods have not changed (i.e.: are you trying to consume a gallon of milk per day out of nowhere), then increase food intake and reduce the DURATION of your cardio. You can maintain or even increase intensity, but reduce the duration. This will maintain cardiovascular/anaerobic conditioning while reducing overall caloric expenditure, and more importantly, reducing activation and expression of energy-conserving enzymes and genes (such as AMPK).

    That's not sub 10% body fat.
    It looks more like 12-13.
    Still solid work, however your one size fits all advice will not work for everyone.
    Peace

    Seriously man, grow up. Everyone is of course entitled to their own opinion, but science is what it is, and new research shows us that HIIT cardio can actually increase gains through mechanisms already explained. You can choose to ignore them if you wish but if you suggest to people that they are "cardio nazis" and hurting their gains then provide research (current) that backs up your position.

    We are here to dicuss what we have learnt and provide help and support for those that need it in the best ways that we can.

    As far as disrespecting other members, I reitterate, grow up. We all have different goals and other commitments in life; not everyone wants to be 250lbs, perhaps when you figure out that the world doesnt revolve around your goals you will see this.

  17. If you doubt the efficacy, generally speaking of course, use anecdotal evidence. NFL players are always the go-to. Drugs or not, how many athletes do you see with physiques that ***** LB's or DE's? I can assure you they do plenty of HIIT in the form of technical and tactical drills and still weigh in the range of 230-290. Freaks? Sure but It's a generally league-wide physique. Simply adding another angle for you, possibly easier to comprehend than scientific literature

  18. I should have read back... OP you are probably more around 15 percent... My avi is about 11ish if that helps.

    This is actually what I ran/plan on running in the future again. Great book with lots of info. Fairly simple to follow and great gains.
