first of all, is there a way to multi-quote on these forums? it’s a bit annoying to have 2 tabs open to just copy and paste replies into one message, lol any help is appreciated if possible.
the 3rd link pic, reminds me of Soda Popinski lol nice…[/quote]
i wish i could rep you for referring to mike tyson’s punchout lol, what a gem
I’m glad I stumbled across this, Corbin
This guy trains at my gym, and he is a crazy hard worker. Definitely makes me look bad if we’re training at the same time haha.
Keep up the good work, bud! I’ll make sure to check out the FB page.[/quote]
wow small world, i’ve been seeing you around everywhere haha. and nah i wouldn’t say that man, you’re the one who makes me look bad when i’m in the corner doing little calf raises and you’re sitting there repping out 4 plates on deads like its nobody’s business lol. your strength is real solid bro keep doing what you’re doing. thanks for the kind words though man, much appreciated!
Very, very impressive, especially considering you’re only 21. Any chance you can give us some insight into your diet/training/etc that got you here?[/quote]
thanks man. training wise i don’t do anything too out of the ordinary, i’ve recently switched it up to a more modified/advanced 5 day split to address my weak points, but for the great majority of my time lifting i have done this basic split
i occasionally switched up the rotation.
i’ve always been a fan of medium reps in the 8-12 range. i start off my workouts doing a compound movement for whatever bodypart i’m doing that day, then as the workout goes on i’ll do more isolation type exercises. for my heaviest set on the compound movement i might go down to like 5-6 reps, but pretty much everything else i stay in the 8-12 range. one thing i always do on chest days is making sure i start out with an incline bench, either barbell or dumbbell. i really feel that did wonders to my chest and really helped with thickness up top giving me a more complete, rounded chest. i don’t think i’ll ever start out with something other than incline, before i started doing that i lacked a lot of thickness up top.
up until this year, i’ve never really followed a specific diet in the offseason. there was certain stuff i always made sure to do (1 scoop protein morning, 2 scoops pwo, 1 scoop casein at night, keep a mental note of how many calories i was getting that day and made sure it was at least 3000+, keep a mental note of protein intake and made sure i was getting at least 1 g/lb of protein), but i never tracked them down to an exact t.
when i’m cutting for a contest though, completely strict and different. i track all of my calories daily and make sure i hit the same exact number of calories, protein, carbs, and fat daily. it switches a little bit time to time, but usually my macros are about 35% protein, 50% carbs, and 15% fat. doesn’t necessarily matter what time i eat (except for pre and post workout) as long i hit all of my macros.
You already know people are gonna ask this.
How do you train?[/quote]
answered above brah.
I’m not usually a fan of people self promoting like this, but hot DAMN that is a good physique (no homo) especially for a natural lifter. I, for one, would love to hear your opinions on training and nutrition.[/quote]
thanks dude! answered above.
While I certainly appreciate the straightforward nature of your post, I’d be more inclined to follow your progress or “support” you if you spend some time on this site answering questions and letting me (us) get to know you better.
Otherwise, this is kinda like getting a flyer stuck under my car’s wiper.
I crumple those up without a second thought, usually.[/quote]
good call, I agree completely. that’s actually what I planned on doing all along in regards to like a Q&A thread, but i was in a rush last night when i made this and totally forgot to include that part. edited my original post though with it, so feel free to ask away.
Lets see some back pics, and curious about height/weight.[/quote]
i’m about 5’10". i’ve gotten up to 210-215 at my heaviest, and was down at my lowest in the upper 160’s in the last contest i competed in over the summer. i’m currently sitting in the lower 180’s, little over 3 months post contest.
my back isn’t terrible by any means but i will admit it is probably my weakest point and i could definitely stand to bring it up a lot, that and legs. here are a couple pics taken over the summer.
