Thanks Josh! I'm feeling confident too.
Who knows, after I get there, maybe I'll try to do it "Raw". As long as we follow the principles of science and methods that have been tried and true (i.e. high protein to build muscle), I think anythiing is possible, and my new trainer seems to be up for challenges
Just because something hasn't been done before doesen't mean it can't be done. But you can't build muscle without protein unless you are genetically gifted do so. For example, I got comments on my calves all the time. I have huge mutant muscular calves. When I gain weight, they are truly the size of thighs. Its from my German heritage and its genetic, period. Meanwhile, my genetically mutant huge ass refuses to budge.... YET!!! Ha, ha
I was researching tonight if there were any Raw Protein Powders besides Hemp. The only thing besides Raw Hemp that I found is a line called Raw Power that is made with a Brazil Nut and Hemp combo. NOT THAT I'M GOING RAW.... I just like to think ahead so I don't have that anti-climactic feeling once I reach a goal.

(I should have been doing these all along. I had knee surgery 3 years ago and one of my thighs is a full 1 1/2 inches bigger than the other. He put me on 1 leg leg presses to compensate. DUH! Why haven't I been doing that???)
3 sets ab crunches to failure
