Thanks Adam....

Post  ThndrChkn on April 17th 2013, 1:00 pm

I just want to take a minute and thank Adam, (blown86hallet) for helping me with my workout/dieting questions. I have been following his diet advise as close as I can, and would like to say, I wasn't really looking to "gain" weight, but I did. I gained 22# in the last 3 months, from 182# to 204#... I feel great, all my clothes still fit, with exception to my shirts, they're a little more snug... Laughing Laughing I do my cardio every morning, 3.5 miles in a little under an hour, and then I hit the weights in the eves. I seeked his advise with the weight training, because I've never trained like a bodybuilder, but always as a powerlifter. And trust me, there IS a difference when you get after it... I haven't quite got the chiseled look that most bodybuilders strive for, but I am definitely leaner, and I feel great...

I don't wanna drag it on, but again, I just wanted to say thanks to Adam for his help and advise...


Thanks Adam... Cool

It's good to have a good trainer ...I was lucky enough to have a guy train me back in the 80's...I still call him to get advice ...Things change a lot as we age..Cant train the same way the young bucks do anymore. Hang in there , Stay strong , and dont let the wolves pull you down.

You have to make a decision when you lift. Do you want to be lean or do you want to be strong?

That's why you see so many body builders in Worlds Strongest Man competitions.

Yes, both can be done. The diet must be kept very strict though. Something most powerlifters just aren't too concerned with. When I was competing in powerlifting there was 2 guys on our team that were (and still are) built like bodybuilders. And both were well ranked in the world standings. And I'm talking top 10, not just in the rankings somehwere. In 1992, Bill Bentley was ranked #2 in the world in the 220# class, with a 770# squat, 505# bench, and a 720# deadlift. And 1989 or 1990, Chance Ferlicka (who still coaches at my son's old high school) was in the top 5 somewhere @ 242#, mostly because he wasn't a big bencher. But his lifts were 810# squat, 435# bench, and 770# deadlift.

Have you watched the WSM the last few years? Most of the American athletes aren't too far from bodybuilder proportion, as was 6-7 time winner Marius Pudjnowski from Poland. Granted, I believe NONE of these guys are drug free to be able to do the feats they do, but I have nothing against steroid use, when done through proper cycling, I see absolutely nothing wrong with them. As a matter of fact, I have a copy of a journal from the AMA from years ago, that states, for ANY MALE over the age of 35, it is RECOMMENDED that they perform a minimum of 1 (preferrably 2) steroid cycle/year to keep testosterone levels up to normal levels. But the FDA had them banned, for reasons that are not only false, but completely obsurd. If you haven't seen it, find and watch the movie, Bigger, Stronger, Faster. It's very informative. If it wasn't for cost, I'd be running a cycle or 2/year myself, just for maintenance...

Carry on... Wink

Doug,, you are correct...I'm not on this or any other site to argue. Just tryin to learn about drag racing. But with 3 Oklahoma state powerlifting titles and two Mister Oklahoma Bodybuilding titles under my belt , I think I know a little about the weight training game. Keep workin hard and listen to people that have been there and done it.. .......Im Out...

Don't get me wrong, yes power lifters have strength, but very limited. I lift about 140,000 lbs. a week with my normal workout. I currently have ~ 17% body fat and weigh 200 lbs. I could outwork a 200 pounder with a 5-6% body fat although they would have more muscle mass and possibly more single lift strength. That's all I'm saying. A lot of guys want to be cut lean, but don't realize that muscle needs fuel.

Healthy strong = 598 with 34.5 x 16
Lean strong = 598 with 10.5 x 15


Start it up and do a burn out
