    Natural Skippy creamy pb is sold in 2x3lb packs at Sam's, if I'm remembering my last trip there right.. And the natural stuff (versus regular) is way better tasting imo.

    185's 5'9" elites is definitely achievable with the right training and nutrition. That's only a 490/330/580. I don't see why the average joe couldn't get that as long as he stays relatively healthy.

    Low test is a bullshit excuse in my opinion for not being able to total elite too. I'm diagnosed with low test and you don't see me complaining.

    That's like saying "if you do everything perfect you might succeed". How many average people have you ever actually lifted with? The percentage of lifters I've actually met that lift with good form and also keep up with their macros is not anything that would approach the word "average".

    I'm pretty sure that is Charly's whole point: it's lack of dedication to proper nutrition and training that hold people back, not innate physical barriers. Charly is saying that the majority of the population, were they to truly devote their selves to the goal of making elite lifts, could probably do it. I don't disagree with that sentiment. It's not easy, but excelling at anything is never easy.

    not trying to get on anyone's jockstrap or rustle anyone's jimmies, so don't take any offense... but i think its worth nothing that the guy who exemplifies hard work and consistency in spite of an imperfect genetic makeup is well on his way to an elite total whereas the people who are finding every reason to disprove him and insisting this could not possibly be so are implicitly highlighting why they themselves are not anywhere near his level lifting-wise.

    no, an elite total is not everyone's goal, but delving into minutiae and spending time researching why arbitrary limits should be imposed on one's potential for no particular reason other than to say it is technically correct strongly correlates with why some people are topping out at a 3-plate deadlift and others are setting state records in PL comps. its certainly not because of their genetic potential, either..

    the whole point of what chariy is saying is that attitude, hard work, and consistency are the prime factors in considering whether someone can have an elite total. he has that, and is well on his way. everyone else who is missing the point, trying to poke holes in it and take issue with the smallest details and insisting how he is not absolutely technically 100% correct because there might be someone somewhere who cannot do such a thing are not coincidentally are lifting peanuts by comparison.

    dont let it ruffle your feathers, i know some people havent been lifting that long and again an elite total is certainly not everyone's goal, but the point was that hard work, consistency, and attitude count for far more than the genetic hand one is dealt when it comes to an elite total. finding excuses and reasons as to why this cannot be 100% true in absolutely every single case shows a strong preference to an external locus of control, a lack of accountability and a strong correlation to not lifting heavy shit.



    puke indeed, i think i will just grab a spoon and get to work. maybe mix some nutella in :nodding:

    Erryone getting A level results today. Gym bro was supposed to go uni with me (queen mary though, not LSE because he's not master race, but they're close together), but he didn't get in. Feels bad man.

    You can't use your test diagnosis to discount everyone else's test diagnosis. Low T runs in a great spectrum, from a gray area of non effect, to sexual dysfunction, intractable fatigue, and hindered growth and recovery of muscle. Again, I would ask that you consider that you are not the example you think you are. Neither claim to genetic inferiority makes a lot of sense, unless you want to expand on any of it. AKA - does your dick work?

    Is it really so hard to imagine that the bell curve line isn't at cerebral palsy? That a 50 year old with low test, sexual dysfunction, and poor leverages exists? Think about the 7 billion people on earth.

    Looks good...that's about $70 US/month. That's about the cost of a "regular" gym in a big city.

    25mins away via what? Walking? Driving? Why wouldn't you train there regularly? What makes you think 1on1 there is any good?

    IF bros; you do 75/25 carbs/fats on workout days and 50/50 carbs/fats on rest days, correct?

    How much stock should I put in this whole glycemic index stuff? Does anyone tailor their diet around it? It seems to me that most grains should just be avoided according to it.

    I don't count fats, only carbs and protein, but I aim for: 220 protein, 80 fat, 60 carbs rest day, and 220 protein, 40g fat, and 400g carbs lifting day.

    Ate so much tonight I literally thought I was going to puke for about 3 hours. :x
