What I did in the gym
by standards of bodybuilding or gym he is small, by standards of average person he might lean or in shape and to cyclists hes probably the fucking antichrist... im just saying i know he trains... a lot... and from what little i understand from his posts is he wants to be on the bigger end. hes not endo guy... and again i question why gear is needed which was my reason for the post
I love the Bus King comment -- I am just over 5'11" (what the average joe calles 6' -- but really, if you are over 5'9" most say they are 6') and I don't weigh 180lbs after a carb binge. I am still considered a bit of a freak because I have raced bikes for the past 5+ years. I have to say that I feel healthier, think clearly longer, and generally enjoy life more focusing on being a better athlete rather than being a better cyclist. This is not for everyone, but if you are honestly not going to make it -- if your part time job is not going to be supplemented by race earnings -- there is a lot to be said for being the best athlete you can be (if you are of such a mind set).
To most... especially the avg. joe I am extrodinarily well built. I got complemented and jealous stares at the gym all the time. Ironically that doesnt "fatigue my muscles." I have been training for many years using hi rep. Also for you guys that have access to "status underground" you can see the xray of my hip. I have too much metal and am missing shit tons of cartilidge from my accident so it is a very bad idea for me to add much body weight. If I way more then 215 I start to get hip and knee pain. Here is the link so check it out so you will see and know why I dont lift(or carry around much body weight or walk with too much weight as my hip and knee are fugged.
P.S. The amount of anabolics I use is bare minimum and thats for good reason. Again people always complement my size because I am so porpotioned. Not to big.. just right
Here is the link
P.P.S. I agree with Pillsbury that you can never be satisfied with your strength. I am a firm beleiver in "Satisfaction is the death of desire"

Yeah, with my back injury, I really don't want to be over 210 at 6'5, and it slows me down being that heavy if I swim, bike or run a lot! It would be a good lean fight weight which is what I consider healthy before the weight drop.
When i am on complete work out then i do take that much but some times i just miss like some days in a month and that get's some serious i start with Monday with 2 days chest and abs then 2 days shoulders and back 2 days solid arms and right now not doing any legs and a day off.
