    Yeah these guys are around 6'4.

    Guess that's not really what you're talking about as an average height guy at that weight at BF% would be a lot bigger.

    Might get crap for this, but I have absolutely no problem with people denying roid use for multiple reasons:

    1. They make a living off of their physique and would lose endorsements if they admitted using
    2. It's illegal and they risk their career for it
    3. It's nobody else's business

    Now, competing in natty competitions while using is another story.

    No shit from me - all your points are fair. Like db_ggmm, I just hate the false expectations it perpetuates.

    On the note of gear, I've been lifting at an Army gym for the past couple weeks...TONS of possible pinners there. It's awesome...super motivating. Nothing like seeing multiple dudes repping 365+ on bench to motivate me to train harder.

    I agree, I wasn't implying that it was hard, just stating that genetics can play a part where your body stores fat and I meant I've trained seriously for 4 years.

    You are 160ish??

    I am 160, but you look pretty thick. I think you a tad shorter than me though. I'm 5'9.5" so body elongated a bit. I am similar in that bitchmode phase (well TBH I have been stuck there for awhile, AMIRITE?? :eek:) but #'s are not as huge as yours, great job!

    I wish I had abs TBH. After working out and showering I sit down shirtless and it is a sad night when I see my pouch :(
    I never had abs in my life.

    * * *
    Some good development with the chest I think. Been just doing 60 to 65 lb dumbbell bench press and incline in lieu of the barbell. Once my shoulders and chest even out with my stomach I will be a little happier.

    quads update, took 2 weeks off lifting for amsterdam and a sickening festival, where I barely ate so I'm reasonably lean, but in that time my 5 rep squat became my 1rm.

    Finally getting somewhere on my bulk. 194lbs on the scale today, new PR. Hit 12 x 225 on bench, dude spotting me suggested that I try 275 next time. 6 more lbs until my bulk goal.

    I am the king of manlets.

    Regardless, I am the rightful heir to the manlet throne.

    And I will take what is mine, with fire and blood.

    What about athletes, or people who cheat/lie to get ahead in any career? I have no problem with steroid use, I have a problem with the dishonestly surrounding it.

    Agreed.

    But even in natty comps.. most guys are on something with short half-lives. Can't blame them too much since testing sucks.

    Until the feds want to throw up the money to enforce testing that might actually work.. people are going to keep on using.





    Sorry to break it to you but most of those guys are on sometime. And they're dishonest because it's illegal.

    But I think the main thing is that it's a bad influence on minors. Same reason why you don't see most celebs or athletes or prominent public figures promoting drinking and smoking.

    Come on, you really want people to be 100% honest about every illegal things they've done?

    If so, I would be a convict felon.. which I do not think I would enjoy.
