Thanks so much, you are too kind, but I've gotta ask what the heck are Huskies?


Mind if I step in and grab this one.... They were the size of pants that were made pre 90s (I believe) for kids. Sizes were Slim Fit, Regular Fit, and Husky Fit. I think along with the length of pants and size of waist it was these additional "fits" for the thighs of the pants. I remember being a Regular Fit and as a kid thinkin that Husky was for overweight kids. Kids would make fun of other kids who wore the "Husky" pants. Its weird how kids can be so cruel sometimes.

Update:
Scratch that pre 90s comment, just did a google search and THEY STILL MAKE THEM! What the!? I thought that term fell off the PC planet!

You just reminded me of something totally random..
I dont know if you watch the series Weeds on Showtime, but one of the characters does commercials for Huskaroo's, a fat kid clothing company. Its so f'd up how we are catering to overweight and obese children. I really wish stores would stop making clothes so big, so fat kids have to wear small clothes. The embarrassment then would save the ridicule as they get older.

Better yet, it might be good if parents took an active role in what their kids are eating... oh yeah, and maybe doing away with all the chocolate milk that kids get served in schools. Kids are fat because their parents start them off on the wrong foods... and then we blame it on "genetics" because the parents are fat, so the kids are fat. The "fat gene" runs in the family... yeah... "fat gene"... sure... if the fat gene has something to do with mom and dad throwing twinkies in the shopping cart at the grocery store... yeah sure ;)

I agree that clothing companies should stop making clothes so big for kids. It's like they expect kids to be fat, and unhealthy now. About a year ago I was shopping with my Mom for baby clothes for one of my nieces, and we couldn't figure out why the baby clothes were so big. They weren't long, they were very wide, and it occurred to me that they were making them for wide kids. Its so sad that these clothes were for little kids under 2 years old.

Woah i haven't thought about husky size clothing in quite some time. I was a child of the huskie pant. I did get made fun of but being gregarious i made the jokes first protecting myself from others morose wit.

I definitely can relate. Most of my classmates still play those jokes on me, quite maturely. Luckily its more for the laughs than viciously.

I wouldn't stress it. You have my support, that's the best I can do for ya. If you lived in nyc, i'd say you have outside support and i'd train with you but I suspect you don't live here.

Don't worry, with the rapid pace your traveling at, when it is time to bronze out that complexion to accent what's up, you'll have all the support you need from the envious onlookers :)

keep up the hard work....

Brighton Beach is extremely close to me. About a 12 minute bicycle ride at a regular pace, at most. I like to go jogging on the shore over there from brighton to coney island and of course, to lay out. The water isn't the cleanest but the sun good when it's warmer outside and it's nice to lay on the sand.

If you ever come out to visit the grandparents, give me a heads up beforehand and we can meet up.

I live in Bensonhurst/Gravesend area.

All right! The progress is still very fast in my opinion, body fat % going down and muscle mass going up.

I think there's a lot of potential on your pecs, they can be huge with right kind of training as they seem to grow really fast.

Any suggestions on training for chest? I am currently doing pretty simple chest workouts, would love to raise it up a notch!

jeez, how many of us were the fat kids? haha. i was too, and i also lost weight very rapidly (probably too fast) when i went vegan 4 1/2 years ago. i'm still battling that fat kid extra skin. :evil:

but your progress is absolutely awesome! you can already see you light ab lines down the sides. from 270? congradulations dude!

as far as chest workouts, are you doing flat bench presses only? because doing those along with incline and decline presses will hit ayour upper and lower chest more thouroughly.
keep up the awesome work!
