I think your stats are inflated, unless those are your 1RMes…but still, I don’t think you fit the bill. Gave you a 3.
Whats your routine like? any goals?[/quote]
Not sure exactly the point of the above post was…
a) Of course the stats I listed are 1RMs, isn’t it a given when someone says they can bench, deadlift, etc. a certain amount they are talking about a max.
b) Not sure what you mean by “I don’t think you fit the bill” but if you don’t think it’s actually me from the before pictures, I just realized that I’m wearing the same shorts in one of them. Haha!
c) My routine is too complicated to write out in this post, but in essence you could say I train at a very high volume (an average of 30 sets per workout) while at the same time training at very high intensity (all sets taken past failure with either rest-pause, drop-sets, supersets, eccentrics, isometrics, etc.). The workouts last anywhere from an hour and forty five minutes to two and a half hours, and I honestly don’t know anyone else who has the balls to train like this, BUT… if you are willing to eat 6-8 meals a day and you make sure to allow your body enough recovery days between muscle groups then you are going to pack on muscle fast as hell without a trace of overtraining. To be honest I actually just added 33 lbs. since basketball season ended in February, and every other high school kid at my gym thinks I must be taking steroids.
d) My goal is to use training and nutrition to build a Lebron-like physique and play in the NBA. I know, laugh it up like everyone else does
