I've started doing this, it definitely works, give it a try.

Rhoden looked pretty good to be honest, got that tight waist, but he won't be winning like that.

My favorite part was when the commentator was talking about how Ramy had only been training three years and put on 80lb on muscle in that time, "he's just got good genetics, everything grows" ... yea ok lol8[1].gif

To be fair he does still have to have exceptional genetics. Even with an ungodly amount of gear he's not going to put on that much muscle without amazing genetics. No one else in the Olympia has only been training for 3 years.

Still think best physique ever is Arnold conquer pic

That's like announcing to the world that Michael Jordan is the best basketball player ever.

Squat form check. Still figuring out what works best for me. I can stay completely upright up until 155lbs, have to break at the hips with anything heavier. 

Any pointers?

You're supposed to break at the hips. shog[1].gif

Some fat and muscle probably. No clue to be quite honest. And don't really care as long as I make weight AND it doesn't affect my performance.
Can't give away all my secrets now, can I?

I'll just say that when I'm coming off of about 4.5-5k calories a day and a lot of salt, I tend to drop a lot of water.

I'm jelly. I can't fuck with salt too much. Dat black hypertension gene. My BP is already borderline

Speaking of which how are you guys cholesterol/BP??? I'm waiting for results from a checkup last week...

Regarding (dietary) cholesterol: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22037012
post #34902 of 57260
BP was 116/58 last I checked. No idea what cholesterol is bc I'm afraid to go to the doctor's office.
post #34903 of 57260
BP is like 150/90 I think, getting medication for it eventually. It's hereditary, but I don't think my life style is very good for it.
post #34904 of 57260
Getting cholesterol done tomorrow along with some other junk. Want to see my numbers before I go back to the end in a few weeks. Anyone know how to raise my TSH levels for dat thyroid diet pill?

BP typically comes in around 120/70
post #34905 of 57260
I know I'm def the heaviest/fattest I've ever been but I don't plan on being this way permanently. If I could be a real lean 190 w/17" gunz at 5' 10" I'd be happy.
