Are you sure Martina is a vegan. I have her book which is pretty good, it came out a few years ago but she says that she still eats meat in it. If she were vegan she'd be a good speaker for a veg fest event. Hint hint!
The devotion of thought to an honest achievement makes the achievement possible.

But still not following. Are you saying she can or could have competed against the women below. Or are you saying she was big for vegan? And the gymnast? They have more muscle than these gals too?

One of the top BBing Gals Iris Kyle:

I'm sorry but she doesn't count. She's purely built by drugs. Take drugs away and she'd be about as big as an elite sprinter plain and simple.

So the top sprinters are drug free?

No they aren't clean but they are actually taking drugs to get stronger but restict certain part of their diets to not gain too much muscle...none of them want to gain too much as it hurts acceleration and stride length. And some of those drugs don't even make you gain muscle...they only give you more endurance to allow you to train longer.

So you are making the comparison of top sprinters (often on drugs) to drug free bodybuilders? That's not fair.

Actually drug free bodybuilders aren't always drug free either. Top sprinters are subject to more regular testing than natural bodybuilders are...they just stay ahead of the game. So this really is a fair comparison.

Thats true but unfortunately its really not testing positive vs. not testing positive...its not really drugs vs. no drugs.

Overall a pretty good workout. I really tried to focus on my deadlifting form today. Last week I went really heavy and I didn't like the form (my hips came up way too quick and I lifted it all with the back). Today I kept the hips down and pushed more with the legs. The first set I did with a mixed grip, but the bar almost fell out on the 4th rep. I used wrist straps for the next two sets.

Another great workout with my friend. He tweaked his hamstring/glute on the squats so we ended up doing more isolation type movements for most of the workout (leg curls vs. lunges). Overall a great workout. My quads are already tight and I know my calves are going to be stiff as a board tomm.

With the shrugs, I find it good to do low reps heavy weight, explode up and hold it and slowly descend the negative part...My traps have grown a ton lately.
