Don’t have a pic, but my body looks quiet normal 9 to 5’er
Bit of a gut, nothing really standsout.
Problem is I train and lift.
I do Brazillian Jiu Jitsu with a crazy conditioning workout at the beginning of each session (3 or so a week)
I also lift heavy on my days off. I powerlift too.
I eat massive amounts of food.
Even though my goals are mostly strength and function related, do you body builders think I should at least have something after all this work?
your body is a direct result of the shit you put into it. If you put crappy food into it, you’ll reap a crappy body. You can’t out-train a bad diet, unless you’re willing to put in about 30 hours of training every week.
I’m also willing to bet
a) you’re not training nearly has hard as you think you are in lifting, and
b) you haven’t been weight training long enough to get results.[/quote]
- lol @ my diet being crap, but sorry I forget to tell you how clean it is.
I avoid HFCS like the plague, in additon to all fast food, BAD fats, any processed food, soda, sweets, white flour, etc.
I do, however ingest massive amounts of clean food + tons of organic green vegetables.
All the food, however, seems to disappear and not pack on muscle.
- I don’t know, I condition pretty hard in BJJ so to keep up the intesnsity on the off days I train pretty dang hard with weights too. Ross Enamait (sp) types of stuff. Circuits. MMA / BJJ type conditioning.
Stuff to make usual gym-goers jaw’s drop
I usually end it with some cardio - maybe 20-30 minutes on a bike (lol-don’t ask) or treadmill. Don’t worry I get lots of glucose right after.
- I’ve been slacking on the weight training a bit, yes. But I do train weights HARD.
Ex. Yesterday I did heavy 20 rep (breathing squats) [If that’s not hard - I don’t know what IS!]
Then those rib-cage pullovers.
Than did about a 2 rep max squat.
Then pullups and dips.
Then ran home.
Then pumped myself full of sugar, protien. 45 minutes or so later ate massive amounts of wholegrain organic pasta, broccoli and chicken breast.
I’m stuffed as we speak. Just ate lunch at work and someone joked about how much I was eating.
It all seems to disappear though.
