    Was watching a show in tv about fat people and they kept talking about bmi's, not once did they mention body fat percentage and the doctor repeatly said everyone with a bmi over 30% are fat.

    Hate BMI. Been obese since highschool based on that crap - even while running 7 minute miles.

    I can't understand why such an archaic and inaccurate method of determining body composition/health is still in such widespread use. I'm 5'10" and currently about 195, which puts me in the "overweight" category. However, I'm also 14% bf, have normal blood pressure, and a resting heart rate in the low 50s. When I finish cutting to about 180 and 10%, I'll still be "overweight", lol.

    Has anyone seen that skulpt bf device? They claim it's multiple times more accurate than bioimpedence and not succeptable to hydration levels. Curious how well their claims hold up.

    Not sure about winning...really more concerned about contest prep than the bb.com challenge. Of course if I happen to win 50k I won't complain! The guys in the past who have won have had transformations similar to what I hope to achieve.

    Pulled 2x5x335 today. Deadlift is skyrocketing with straps, will surpass my squat next time.

    5 lbs short of totaling 900, hyped on breaking that barrier. Really hoping I can hit 1000 by the end of Feb.

    192 this morning. :slayer:

    Do you mean LBO's and M&A modeling or something?

    EDIT: It just sounds like financing M&A transactions, including LBO's

    LevFin is a group in IBD that primarily structures high yield debt and bank loans for LBOs, Refinancings, Acquisitions etc. Pretty prestigious group, less pitch work, more executing deals in most cases. Good exit ops.

    Got a referral to the university sports medicine clinic finally, hopefully they can sort this shit out. Front squats Dont seem to bother the elbow too much so it's just them, deadlifts and shrugs for the next while I guess.

    Also want to cut but even after tuning in diet a little, ive remembered why I Dont like cutting: I get ravenously stupid hungry. :(

    The annual meeting at the PL club was today.
    Learnt that this is my last year as a junior lifter in IPF, and after that I will be a senior which will have me qualifying for the district series.

    You have to sign up for all meets of the year according to the club policy, if you want to lift for them and get a lifters license for IPF. Problem is that the next meet is in just a month which doesn't leave enough room for prep and peaking. I'm not mentally ready for that either. My lifts are low but I don't care about that.

    Had initially planned to bulk up until fall and do a meet then. Looks like I'll have to wait until next year but that'll also have me qualifying.
    No idea what numbers are required to pass the qualification but I'll just take this whole year to try to put on some quality mass. Guys at the club told me I should ideally be in the -120kg class for my height to be competitive [​IMG]

    How long did it take for you to get from a 275 to 400 squat?

    yeah, it's about the same in weightlifting too (generally). Guys over 5'10-11" are either 105s or supers. I'm 5'8" and I thought my coach was kidding when I asked him what class I'd be if I'd be really competitive and he said probably a -94

    Funny, that anthropometry stuff. I'd love to be a super but then I might have no business on SF. I had average/abv avg results as an 85 in the couple nonofficial meets Ive done. I just wanna look real small and throw a guy twice my size out the window in a bar fight.
