I do not belong to the 'amazing lean genetics club'. No way I could have made the size/strength gains I have in the past few years without adding some fat. Not to say I haven't made mistakes or over done it, but it's hard for me to stay lean when I'm dieting, let alone when trying to add size. Plus, being somewhat older than the teens/20-somethings, I don't have the luxury of 'time', so fast-track methods work for me.
Meganewb (George) decided to take the fast track too, and he took advantage of his genetics potential to be a big, big kid-- and he HAS the luxury of time. He'll do well in this game in the long run-- because it's a long-run type of game.
This is a huge compliment coming from you- thank you, especially as much as you lament that only a few people have made progress on these boards!
Yeah, I can stand to cut, oh, 40 pounds, but a few things work in my advantage.
- I look like I lift weights while clothed.
- My wife digs the bigger look and loves "Little D" whether I have abs or not
- My asthetic is second to weight and strength progression right now --- years to build, weeks to cut.
Seems simple in that regard. Meganewb and a bunch of other big dudes get it. If it works for them then why should anyone judge?
