Hahah I wondered the same.
So this is obviously just for discussion sake but I was just wondering your guy's opinions.
Not proud to admitt but I have dont a very short stint and I have some friends/family who have done time. Some a long time, some not so much but they all agree with me when i bring it up. There are some massively muscular guys and it baffled me.
As much as we on the "outside" spend obsessing over various aspects of training (nutrition, recovery, supplements, diets, and even anabolics) and these guys dont really have access to any of this. Given it was only about four days I was there but their "weight room" was a very cheap and imcomplete set up and everybody knows the food is awful and you don't get very much. I also understand the fear of getting rapped and or killed be some kind of motivation lol.
So I know some of you guys might laugh this off but Im generally interested in opinions..
Hahah I wondered the same.
I've been doing a body weight only workout for over a year,
Pull ups, dips pistol squats,
Granted, I'm currently using a Mir weight vest 75 lbs.
So it's possible
because all the non sense that is preached about on a daily basis is irrelevant in comarison to real life. my diet is far from the "norm" and i train 3 days a week with a full body split, eat less than a gram of protein per lb bodyweight with a ton of carbs and still continue to lose weight and maintain all my mass.
Guys in prison can get steroids too ya know
They've got nothing but time and they definitely have access to hormones, they're able to get every other controlled substance in.
Oh I'm sure they can get steroids but I'm sure that's not all of it
One would think that the consistency in their workouts and the copious amounts of rest plays an important role.
This is something I've always wondered too. I can't understand it really. I think it has a lot to do with their diet.
The food they eat has so many calories in it and all they have is time to work it off. So I think it has a lot to do
with that. I also think that they have a lot of equipment to use too. Since they have so much time they just do
pushups and situps all day.
I did 4 days in a west Virginia jail for underage drinking back in 2010. They fed us an under 1000 calorie diet.
Granted it wasn't prison, where things are diffetent, but no way do they get their protein needs or calorie needs from just the prison food.
So in conclusion, it is probably your few genetic freaks.
I thought about this too...
I think motivation and time has a lot to do with it. If you remove my family, friends, job and freedom from my life and the only thing I can do is focus my energy into bettering my body I garuntee I'd look a hell of a lot better than I do now-supplements or not.

Maybe it's the low calories and depression.Originally Posted by SlyCamaro
I used to be a CO several year ago an this does hold true to an extent, at least in prison. The food sucks, but it is nutritious, and three meals a day with plenty of rest is a recipe for getting big. Think about it, how often do most people eat three square meals a day? Less than you think.Originally Posted by JoeySon

Remember why you started.
^ Yep. My father ran a corrections facility for a number of years, and I remember reading that although the food is pretty sh****, they can get a large number of calories and the macros inmates are getting are not terrible. As godfather said, 3 square meals and plenty of prison lounging could be a decent recipe for growth.
That is, if you don't burn off all those calories trying not to getting Shawshank'd.
Go hard. Go heavy. Never stop.
when i did 8 months i did push ups, curls(wrapping towel or blanket sheet around bar and curl with 2 hands sorta like rope hammer curl. and we did deck of cards for chest, sit ups. and squats with someone sitting on your shoulders. worked out hours in hours out. and 3 big meals so yea the calories were there.
What did u do with the deck of cards as far as sit ups go?Originally Posted by DrDeca
Squat with a person on shoulders nice haha...
What was the food/cal/macros like?
