I think a lot of leg strength comes from being heavier. You carry extra weight all day and it shows when you do a lift that doesn't include your own bodyweight. This is why a lot of fat guys can leg press 3.5-4x their squat max.

Actually Robert's hair is starting to grow on me ha ha. It's not so bad when he has it pulled back at the gym. Wow Robert, maybe it'smy imagination, but you already look bigger than when I saw you a couple of weeks ago.
The devotion of thought to an honest achievement makes the achievement possible.

Dude, it's OK to be jealous or envious, it really is....most people are, but now everyone knows it.

It's OK, your hair will grow back man.

Mine keeps getting longer and keeps getting blonder. I guess you could say my hair is taking action and making it happen :)

Thanks Hayley,

I actually feel smaller, much smaller and I wasn't pumped at all, just took my shirt off for the photo since I saw a water fall........it's like a disorder bodybuilders have....we see water and we have to take our shirts off.....real bodybuilders know that and understand that ;)

After my trip to San Fran later this week I'll be home for a while and I'll try to get as heavy as I can. That will be my goal. Now............time to go eat!

Look at that booty in the shadow of the first pic! I actually got 2 compliments on my butt when I was in Canada over the weekend. I've been working my ass off lately to build my ass up. I like the progress. Nothing like strong legs and glutes!

I see no spongebob, i see no haircut - all i see is that the thinthin Robot Chicken FINALLY does what he needed to do - take a break from the endless comps, train heavy and EAT to get BIGGER!
Solid work, man, keep on track now!

This means a lot, thanks! I was really, really hoping to hang out this summer to show you that I packed on some muscle...and reached 195 compared to 172 when you saw me!!!!

I'm finally back and it's so much fun! I'm even squating and deadlifting..not too heavy, but I'm learning again.

Maybe next time we meet we'll combine for 410 lbs!

Just need to see a little more lats. Delts are super huge, and need just a little more width in the taper to the huge erector spinae group.

Keep the hair long. It will keep you young and sexy looking. May need to prove that you are serious though in the business world upon first impression looks. Which you do with your smile and a firm handshake, right?

200

#75 Postby John V » Sat Jun 07, 2008 9:23 am

Gee Robert,
My goal to get under 200 doesn't seem so tough, compared to yours to get over 200! You'll be there soon. I'll send you a prize when we weigh the same!
(though of course I won't be nearly as fit as you yet) I'll even put up some before/after pics then.

BTW: My vote is for the long hair, Samson.
