    There is a reason the prison industry is so profitable. Many people go in at a young age, get 3 hots and a cot. When they're released they know nothing else and end up preferring the prison life.

    It's a messed up cycle. There are plenty of good articles and books written on the subject.
    Yeah there is plenty of weed and homemade liquor but most of the hardcore weightlifters don't don't smoke n drink... Until they get out! Lol
    I was never in a max security prison, was always in medium security. Lifting weights and watching sports passed the time.


  2. The people who said the unlimited rest are right when you don't much all day you don't 5000 calories to be above your maintenance, and I'm the sure the guys who are getting huge in there are using there commonsery (spelled wrong) wisely and buying canned tuna peanut butter etc

    We've all read so many articles and advertisements that we feel that whatever works for Yates must work for us too.

    My last room mate went in and did 5 months. He did a full body routine every day, couple hundred pushups from wide grip to close grip, squats using whatever he could find for weight, bicep curls with trash bags filled with water. (There were no weights for them to use)

    He went in as a 150lb tweaker and came out abso-****ing-loutely shredded. Unrecognizable. His diet was regular prison food, and occasionally he would make "spreads" (ramen, with tuna, chili, chips, whatever could be mixed together and spread on some tortillas or bread)

    People need to find something that works for them, rather than following a set routine and diet. I used to do upper 2x week and lower 2x a week. Now I train about 3x a week almost only compound lifts and eat when I'm hungry. I've made much better gains than using a set routine with a set diet.
    I agree everyone over thinks everything. My friend knew almost nothing about working out when he started and just worked out hard and ate lots of protein and got HUGE. Simplicity is key.

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

  5. I did seven months in county two years ago, and went in at 128lbs. Granted I was doing plenty of drugs before I got locked up, and obviously wasn't while I was there..

    ...but I walked out of there a solid 155 and was the biggest and most muscular I've ever been.. And the diet was complete junk, plus bread and peanut butter. All day. Every day. Day in, day out. I did pushups, lunges, pullups, crunches and a couple other things. I still wonder to this day how I managed to put on that weight so fast, and I wish I could do it out here!

  9. Just a stereotype.... I spent over 10 years in the Texas prison system and the majority are overweight and out of shape. Those who do workout are in such a caloric surplus of course they get big. They pulled all of our free weights many years ago due to idiots using them as weapons... So all we had were calisthenics and machines. We worked all day in the fields then trained at least 2 hours a day eating everything we could get our hands on. Working in kitchen was a plus. Most of the guys you see who go in as drug addicts respond well to exercise and caloric surplus because they were proactively starving themselves while using. So yeah they gained weight.

  10. This is just conjecture, and I have nothing to base this on,
    However, there is the possibility that the prison environment itself, can raise testosterone levels.
    Just a possible theory.

    Peace

  11. **** genetics man, when your in its all hard work and 3 basic meals. plus some people hoop in AAS for people. **** genetics while your in

  12. you have a very good schedule when you're in jail, you sleep early and get up early which is very important for the body bc in certain times of the night that's when you get your full REM for better recovery as well as keeping healthy test levels. do whatever you are assigned whether it be kitchen duties or laundry then you have your rec time which is where you would hit the weights then shower then get your phone calls in and have a solid 3 day meal but if you're working the kitchen then you get to have extra food and that will definitely get your weight up. so when you're in the penitentiary its pretty much made for you to become physically fit IF you take advantage of it. even with something as simple as drinking tons of water, you're not as spoiled as you are when you're in your homes so you just drink a ton of tap water. Eat, work, lift, sleep, repeat. putting your body into a very strict schedule will do wonders for your body.

    LOLL in the DC area they took away the weight equipment bc the inmates were becoming bigger than the CO's and they were getting man handled. we actually got some weight equipment from mike tyson in one of the places i did some time but that got taken away.

    Wow

    Said the guards were getting man handled.
    It's true, I wonder how inmates come out swole but it's hard for outsiders with access to nice gyms and tons of supplements.

  15. They cut the weight equipment out here in AZ a few years back too, for the same reason...inmates were posing a threat because of how big they were getting. Still swole guys on the yards though
