weak my ass, good luck brother.


Your diets a little low in fat. Get some olive oil in there and some walnutts too.

You know how to lift. Compound movements, explosive, heavy weights. Your strength numbers are great.

I would throw some plyo's and sprint work in there as well. Your gonna need some agility and speed to be up to par.


Im sorry, 2 of 4 chicken breast I cook with 2-3 tbl spoon of olive oil. Lifting good numbers are great! But I need some endurance. Your right about the sprints.

What my friend I and have been doing is run\jog 2-3 miles on a 400m track, we sprint the straight ways and jog the curves.

And Steven, thanks ...going to need it.
