Really happy with my weight gain right now. Sitting at around 196/88kg at any given morning. Still managing to keep the fat off right now. Still chasing the mini-fridge status legs right now. I remember looking at my quads after a good leg pump and now it just look like the pump stayed there. Conditioning is climbing back up again and calories need to be increased so I can reach my 200BW goal
Full day of eating looks something like this-
6 eggs, 1.5 Cups of rice and 2 grapefruits.
1/2 Pound of ground sirloin, 1 cup of rice, half a sweet potato, and some random veggies.
Repeat Lunch just without the sweet potato.
Usually anywhere from a half pound to a pound of chicken or beef, 1.5-2 cups of rice, and an apple or some other sugary fruit.
Before bed snack-
1 cup lowfat cottage cheese with some pears and a protein shake.
This diet will do it! Throw in some chips/ice cream/beer and you’ll be at 200 in no time. How tall are you?
Still stuck at 5’8, short and stout.
Eyyy like me.

Absolutely humbling exercise, stability felt like trying to press in an earthquake!
Tricep Pushdowns- x5x20 SS W/Reverse Flyes- x5x10
I just realized Im not that far away from you on deadlift anymore, Ill attempt to chase your deadlift. The only problem is that you have a world class elite deadlifter training you so my chances of catching up are slim to none.
8 weeks to race me to 505lbs(hopefully)
LMAO not happening. Im at 415 right now going up about 10-20lbs a month. Even if I went up 20lbs a month I would be at 455 max.
I have practically no experience throwing sandbags and it’s going to be at nationals this year. I’ve had a few ideas stuck in my head on how to train for it seeing as I have no sandbags to toss.
This one stuck the most: 10 Rounds of a throwing/explosion complex kinda thing. It would go something like this-
1A. Depth Vertical/Broad Jump- x1 (Jump to Prime my body)
1B. KB Toss- x1 (KB Toss to mimic sandbag, at 35lbs (Heaviest sandbag for my division)
1C. DB Snatch- x2 (Each arm) (To mimic the explosion required for the next two bags)
If I did this everyday, do you think this would eat into my recovery? or is this just a completely inefficient way to train for throwing better?
All I ever did was the KB toss, and that was to learn technique. I’ve got no experience with snatches or that sort of jump.
Do you think your weakness will be technique or power?
