  1. I'm too wide baby I need some room
  2. You can do some pretty drastic things in 12 weeks with drugs, but this doesn't look real. The calves seem to have grown a ton.
  3. Cut your protein and up your carbs. 300g is not only unnecessary, but it's also an inferior source of fuel for you due to your endurance training. 150-200g a day is more than enough still.
  4. Thanks man, even If I do lift more, I really look up to you, your form is always superb. I like romanian deadlifts more anyways, I used to just start from the top so getting used to pulling from the floor.
  5. Was waiting for you to chime in. Any tips on my deadlifts? I feel like my form is not great. I always thought it was fine until recording. My back's not rounded or anything, but it kind of seems like i'm not using enough quads, and that maybe my hips are rising too fast or something. Squat I think is fine. That squat rep was pretty difficult and I held my form pretty well I think. I full expect my squat to be > 350 pretty much as soon as I start eating. I'm pretty depleted these days.
  6. Crush is close, The Rush is what it's called. I would rather go to a more hardcore gym, but ya gotta do what ya gotta do. There's none around.
  7. Yep there is. They are under eating and they are 'detoxing' until they lose enough body mass and their metabolic rate slows enough to adjust to the reduced calories and lost the 'false body' and now feel better.
  8. Here's a few of mine: 335 squat- I've been dieting for a month and a half, this would normally be cake but it's getting harder to put up, can't wait till i start eating. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rOe5LF-bxrM 365 deadlift- Was doing these for 8-10 reps with straps @ 365 before I started cutting. This was pretty poor and my form isn't really good either. I managed a 405 for a single after this with decent form, but it's really hard to do since under eating.. it really zaps strength. I was disappointed that I managed only two reps. Oh well, strength time will come soon. Winter approaches. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U7G9wqHFWic Pay no mind to the fruity colors and bad music...corporate gyms.
  9. Any whole grain vs fruit. Basing your carb intake on fruit and fructose is NOT healthy.
  10. For someone that wants to compete, your calorie and protein intakes are far too low.
  11. I love watching how strong you are getting. Keep it up. Your form is textbook too. Excellent.
  12. Need to be really lean to try to combat elevated estrogen from my liver issues. Soon though, soon.
  13. I'll look around and see if I can dig it/others up.
  14. I did it for a while a few years ago. If I were you and wanted to compete within a year, I'd discourage it. I was glad I did it though, good learning experience.
  15. When I stop cutting, It's on! Also, should I start belting up on heavy deadlift sets? I really really hate belts.
  16. Looks like his lower chest is bigger than his upper to me.
  17. It's hard to eat a large enough amount of raw calories. Either most of your calories are coming from fat, or fructose, and both are unhealthy in excess. Not to mention the protein quality is not nearly as good.
  18. I find it easier, and the metabolism boosting is a huge myth. Johan once posted a cool article about it.
  19. Your diet seems pretty solid. Stick to your set routine for a while, and log your workouts. Make sure you are progressing each workout, whether it's 1 rep or 5 pounds or whatever. If you are not progressing, something is not on point (diet,routine,sleep, etc) with strength comes size.
  20. There is no "upper" nor "lower" chest. Regular pushups are just fine.
  21. Vega is not raw because of the pea protein, and maybe a few other ingredients. Even if it was raw, it's still a dried powdered product. "Raw" protein powders are sort of a joke imo.
  22. It's not. Absolutely not. You need to be putting on lean mass right now, you are too slim for bikini as is. You will be hard pressed to grow off a raw diet, and there is nothing healthier about it vs a vegan diet. Raw foodists hype up their diet and lifestyle, you'll find that some of them are just outright liars. Don't buy the hype.
  23. Solid squats, really powerful. How far above parallel is 16" to you? I look forward to when I stop undereating and can focus on strength again.
