LOL at guys getting into a personal argument on someone elses RMP thread. im not that strong yet, not that big either. 6'1, 195lbs at 17 YO. but at least im not insecure about it. im pretty sure that agression like this, especially on an internet forum is indicative of serious insecurity lol. not so much for achilles. but to the other guy, dibella or whatever, i dont remember, youre a douche bag. i understand how it can be hard to take someone seriously if theyre not that imressive, but if they were impressive, they wouldnt be asking for advice would they? youre just being a dick plain and simple.

Again achilles making assumptions about something he knows NOTHING about. USF was not my safety school. I wanted to go here. And yes, it was on a full ride. I could have got in anywhere I chose. Again I NEVER said I was the strongest natural lifter at USF did I? I just said there weren't many natural people doing what I can. Natural meaning no anabolics of any kind, i.e. PH's, IV anabolics, or any other oral-bol. And if you want to meet up I would be down to lift with someone else. No doubt I could learn a few things. But don't brag about size/strength to me if you're obviously NOT natural lol.. Sorry I don't have pictures of myself, but I do have a video doing dips about 5 months after the dislocation if you're that bored. And for the record, FSU is a joke school man. Learn your shit before you start slangin stuff you know nothing about. You can sit there and tell me that your diet and training got you that far or whatever you want to claim. But myself and many others can look at you immediately and know you've been on stuff. Another thing is that even if the sports are drug tested, YOU KNOW HOW MANY FOOTBALL PLAYERS ARE ON SHIT? Ignorant to think that your sports are any different in avoiding those tests. I've seen some pretty incredible natural feats of strength don't get me wrong. But looking the way you do and having those lifts... derp derp. I'm at the gym every weekday and sunday around 7-7:30 pm. Don't be a stranger.

BTW. You broke a bone in your hand. Healing range is 3-6 weeks. I dislocated a major joint in my body that deals with almost every lift in the gym. It never heals. Doctor said I never would be able to touch a weight again. Your doctor probably said you'll be good as new in 4 weeks. You're such a badass! Sorry members of T-Nation if the truth hurts. Real sorry. I hoped nobody would be butthurt for asking OP to provide a video, but I guessed wrong.

I'll be like achilles now. All nice and informative.

OP: Start increasing calorie intake progressively. Increase the weight and decrease rep ranges. Don't do cardio like sprinting just yet if you plan on bulking up. 1.5 x BW for protein and approx. 3.5-4.5k calories a day if you can manage intake like that on your budget (It's expensive to eat well and frequently). Increase rest periods. Stay out of the target heart range in between lifts if you can. Train harder than you have the day before. Enjoy your gains.

Your e-peen is so huge.

Dude seriously who the hell are you to be judging immediately who's on gear and who's not? There are some big and strong natty lifters out there, you can't be calling bullshit on someone just because they weigh 250 and put up good numbers.

At least you actually made an effort to be helpful with the last post.

If the pictures on the first page are of achilles... He's on gear. I can't see his profile because it's private so idk. Your lifts are that of natural lifting. Physically speaking your muscles have that steroid glow lol... like i said... if that is you in the picture on the first page.

all i have to say to achilles is this: there is no sixth metacarpal. unless you have a sixth finger lol.

dibella: youre still in insecure dickface lol. i cant believe youre so defensive to someone on the internet.

OP: dont let this turn you off of this site. theres still a lot of great info on here and some actually helpful people. some of the assholes are helpful too. just depends on if they actually have something helpful to say or theyre just insecure. and you can almost always avoid stuff like this if you first ask yourself if eating more or sleeping more might solve youre problems. dont even bother asking if that will solve your problems because 90% of the advice on here is of the "squats and milk" variety. not that that isnt great advice, its just very basic and general.

I just figured he meant one of the middle ones. I wasn't going to call him out on that too. And everyone in the argument was being defensive to some extent.

I don't think anyone is disputing the value of sprints. What you said is generally true. What we are saying is that you need to do a lot less sprinting and a lot more lifting and eating. I went from 160 to 205 doing cardio about once a week for 20 minutes and for 5 minutes before each session as a warmup. It kept the fat in check (I went from 10% to 14% BF but gained 45 lbs) without really taking much away from my gains. I did the cardio on an "off" day, giving my CNS time to recover from the heavy lifting day prior. I usually do interval training when I do it too (alternating between running, rowing, elliptical-ing, stair stepping, etc). Sometimes I would do 7 minutes on 3 different machines just for variety. It's enough to tire you without requiring a tremendous amount of CNS commitment. Hope that makes sense.
