I'm looking forward to this kind of eating, combined with a decent mass gaining routine...

 

I WILL BE BIG!

heres a couple of pictures of my own, taken last night when we had a little veganfitness.net meet up at my house. those there included joni (JP), me, brian (buzz), oak, kathryn, stacy (spacorama) and kay.

 

we had a little powerlifitng type event, with the three big lifts and there were pbs all over the place! i got 132.5kg on the bench (292lbs) for a reasonably easy pb by 2.5kg.

 

here are two photos of me pulling a really light deadlift (170kg/375lb). the struggle isnt the weight - its keeping the form! (which i did wonderfully!)

 

 

a moment before lockout (please do not show this picture to your children unless you want to terrorise them!):

Awesome photo Daywalker! I'm always running around in shorts or underwear too Megan tells me to "put some pants on!"

 

Jonathan,

 

Great stuff man! You looked ripped and shredded and have a huge neck!

 

I've never met you in person but I hear from Topher that you are "huge." Congratulations on the new Personal Best!

 

Keep it up man, and thanks guys for sharing the photos.

cheers rob - well you do know that i work very hard at the whole ripped and shredded thing!

 

actually, i would love it if i wasnt - it would mean that i had put on some weight, which is pretty damn hard for me, as i dont really enjoy eating that much

 

you gotta get back into the strength game as well man - especially the heavy benching (all the way to the chest ). it hasnt put that much on my arms, but my chest has grown hugely. i am a totally chest dominant bencher though (illustrated by the fact that my paused bench isnt that far behind my touch and go bench).

gotta be worth a try just for a routine change, mixing things up and what not. plus its great to be strong

"It's great to be strong."

 

I hear ya man. I've felt like that at times when I would incline press 100-lb dumbells in each hand and it was pretty easy. That was when I was 15 pounds heavier than I am now (back in 2003 at my peak in strength). I'd like to get back into the strength game. It is fun to set a new PB or PR. It's hard to do that with looking in the mirror Hard to tell sometimes when I'm in personal best shape. But with weights, there's no secret, you get stronger or you don't.

 

Anyway, glad to hear you are getting stronger. I'm also tired of being "ripped" and it's time to put some fat on me again! We can both be Big Big Fat Hims

 

All the way down.....touch the chest! ------------

Don't have any recent shots. But here are a couple:

555lb deadlift. no belt, wraps or suit. tore some cartilage in my hip on this pull. Now I can't sumo stance anything. Couldn't really train deadlift for all of 2005 because of this. Blast it all.

Another picture from October of 2004. Some random large rock VE and I hoisted.

This is last summer DL'ing 530. Had failed with it on the previous attempt and was coming off a broken rib and sprained back. Was pretty happy to get it, a new PR for conventional stance actually.

Granted I have a tendancy to shout during full exertion lifts, this one was really just for showmanship. This particular contest is done at Summerfest, a huge festival in Wisconsin, and there is a pretty sizeable crowd on hand (300-500 people + random walkby). So the kilt (which is in the family plaid), the beard, and the shouting was to try and get them riled up. I think they cheered more for me than the guy that pulled an easy 730lb DL. Though that may have been due to shock at his impressive powers.

 

Robert, I started posting a log again on VF.net if you want to take a look at it. I've been training at a place in town called NX Level Athletics, which is a strength and conditioning gym for athletes (high school through professional level). It is all one on one coaching with some real experts (not internet certified or 3-6 month cert. class trainers) that have the degrees, experience in training, and experience actually doing it (all the trainers are stronger than me). Otherwise when I was on my own I'd generally train one to three times a week (usually twice) and go very heavy triples and singles for about six months and then try to do some mid-rep range work (sets of 6). I would mostly just do compound movements, isolation stuff was worthless for me. We can talk about that more in private if you would like.

 

Regards,

 

Sensless

Awesome man! That must make a huge difference! I often wonder that too. I train on my own, occasionally with a partner, but I just do my own thing for the most part. I often wonder if I should have a trainer to help maximize my potential.

 

Time for me to eat now!

 

Thanks for the info.

 

-Rob
