So should I really increase my protein from 150g to 200g? Seems high, was thinking 170-180g. Currently weighing around 187, 5'6. Opinions?

also weight loss hasnt stalled, but definitely slowed down. went from 1.5-1lb a week to about .8-1b a week. i guess this is sort of expected. might drop a little bit of carbs from rest days soon.

Going through this encyclopedia of bodybuilding. All the guys in the pictures form the 60s look amazing, even the dudes way in the background. I would love to attain that physique in my lifetime. Most of them don't seem to be crazy cut either, some even only have four packs.

Yea. I do know some natty people who have that physique. It's crazy how lean they get comparing 60s to 70s stuff.

Actually, I know a dude who looks strikingly like early Ken Waller and he doesn't even lift. Is a life guard, runs on the beach, lifts stones, and eats candy.

Some of the best built guys I know have never stepped foot in a gym, just been surfing and skating their whole lives.

Ah yea, forgot to mention he surfs a ton. I guess that conditioning and surfing does it, also perfect genetics.

Anyways, I'm sore as hell. Worked out with a real bodybuilding duder today, was pretty good. Everyone in the gym was super offended by the amount of curls we did and needed to comment on it.

I'm still not sure how much stock I actually put in genetics.

they aren't an excuse for being fat but chest depth, back width, clavicle length are all pretty genetically driven. ditto long arms, full muscle bellies. that said, there are ways to create illusions and such but my back width pretty much guarantees that I will never have a super deep chest.

I put a lot of stock in genetics when hormone manipulation isn't involved.

In my opinion it's everything; from a recovery, leverages, nervous system, and health perspective. At least in powerlifting. But everyone likes to say DUR genetics doesn't matter if you work hard you will achieve it, which is true to an extent but "it" is your natural genetic potential.

If you don't think genetics play a roll; look at the AC joint. Theres like 3-4 different genetic categories oh how your AC joint is constructed, one of them lets you bench elbows flared for your whole life without any problems.

My deadlift is weak off the floor, but once I get the bar to about knee height I have no problem with the lock out.

What assistance exercises should I focus on to improve my strength off the floor?
