I am not scared of teh fatty. Bulked from 120lb to 210lb in like a year and a bit or something. Yes got fat, but went from barely being able to squat the bar to like 160kg or something, can't remember lifts.

Eason was also super injured for a hella long time

ah true, i know that feel. It's still good progress though.. progress is progress. I think anything heavier Eason wouldn't look like his dainty self, and I think that's what he likes?

I think this is lost on most e-bros. I don't personally want to gain fucktons of weight and keep up that weight, so if I end up slow bulking over a few years, great. If I don't but am still lifting what I want, that's all I really want. Has nothing to do with abs or anything.

You are all good cooks. Any recommendations?

There was an episode of the Cosby show where Cliff's super white clumsy friend wanted Cliff to teach him how to play basketball to impress his 3 year old kid.

They do the whole thing, and then finally the white dude, who is just as clumsy as he was before Cliff's lessons, takes his kid to the park. He takes a shot, and it hits the rim + misses.

The kid says, "wow dad you hit the rim!"

That was way more long winded than I wanted it to be. But when it comes to men cooking for women, 9 times out of 10 they will just be happy you made the effort, and 6 times out of 10 they have shit taste in food anyway and think scrambled eggs with spices are fine dining.

So personally I wouldn't worry about it. Wifey and I each have our specialties but I wouldn't say either of us are phenomenal cooks. I would focus on shit that is easy to get right - pasta, good cuts of steak, salmon, etc... and go from there. I think being a good cook is like being a good dancer- you either have it or you don't... if you don't, just stick to the 2 steps

Or you can be me, make shit gains, and just get fat.

>inb4 didn't sleep/eat/train/rippetoe hard enough

Spent months stripping away all the fat (and made marginal strength gains in the process). Now that I have my diet dialed in to where I'm gaining 0.5-1lb a week, it fucking sucks because even though I started out lean as shit, I'm probably putting on 2lbs of fat for every lean lb I'm gaining. I'm sure there are a variety of reasons for this, but I'm going to wager getting a late start and being 33 is part of the problem.

Been feeling a little depressed about my progress. Dont know if any of you guys follow Hodgetwins/Twinmusclefitness but I have been lifting for as long as those guys, and am 10 years younger, and have made like 20% as much progress. 2013 has got to be my year, or I might just give it up and focus on shit like cycling and bball. I def have a much better idea of what works for me though. I spent 2 years spinning gears.

About bulking and making fast progress: I'm not even injured but due to my piss-poor lumbar and hamstring mobility, I haven't been able to push my squat and DL at all until recently, and I got "serious" about lifting last April. I probably would've made a lot better gains if I had fixed myself at the start.

 

That said, it finally feels like I'm getting somewhere with the squat and deadlift. My biggest problem was lumbar flexion and losing tension at the bottom, which lead to hyperextension on the way up. I found on today's squat session that I could maintain the tension and a tight core a lot easier if I squatted straight down high-bar style instead of trying to sit back. I still sit back a decent amount and go to parallel but knees shoot out a bit in front of toes and out to the sides. Knees over toes isn't necessarily bad high-bar, right?

 

It felt a lot more stable, I could maintain an upright torso and felt like I pushed up the weight from underneath, versus forcing it up with a curved spine.

I have my weird complex that I still want to be a skinny bitch and look good in clothes. It's def going to prevent me from ever having too much mass. As soon as I hit 200lbs I dial it back and cut down to 190. Weightlifting is basically just a hobby and keeps me looking decent enough that people know I workout.

Don't feel bad, 80% difference is standard between black and white guys lol. They lifted before and a lot of it is muscle memory, they also admitted prohormone use in the past.

iirc, CtK is a black dude

where the fuck else are your knees going to go if you squat hb properly

Stinger stfu about how the hodge twins are only big and you're not cause theyre black and you're white. it's embarrassing and there's no real difference in race like that.

The reason you lack aesthetics is because you don't take time to develop your upper body lifts and don't listen to anyone's advice. Stop squatting every day, do one lower body day a week and two or three upper body days, eat big, and then you can bitch about how hard it is to gain mass/aesthetics cause you're white.

This isn't the Olympics where a small difference in proportion gives you the edge.

Take a very minor edge and extrapolate it over 6 years of lifting and you have two people who look nothing alike.

Haha!

 

That was what I was thinking, but wasn't sure since all squatting tutorials and tips I've watched and read has said that it's better to keep shins as vertical as possible in order to get more power from the posterior chain. That low bar technique with sitting back and all hasn't worked for me at all. The stronger tilt of the upper body only lead to excessive butt wink and hyperextension caused by lousy flexibility.

 

Now that I think of it, SS actually has a good description of the high-bar squat, but for some reason I discarded that.
