    Amphirion: Training routine, in isolation, will create demand for food. Each gram of food you give to your stomach, your body try to turn it into energy, because your body want to survive, not adding weight. And your stomach will digest carbs first, then proteins and fats.

    So by eating more carbs, your body will turn them into energy, and the others nutriments will do others things, like building new muscles tissues, and recovering. And your appetite will be increased. And like you said, your wallet will be smaller haha

    Nah im not a meso LOL. My nutrition is adapted to a ecto. If i turn meso or endo tomorrow morning, i will weight 450lbs before the end of the year lol.

    I think its easier getting big(muscles not fat) as a ectomorph, because you only have to eat and train. Meso guys have to calculate all the time. If they eat too much, they get fat. Its really not our problem as ecto.

    And yes, if i stop training, even for 2 weeks, i lost weight. Its frustrating sometimes!

    I like to train for "if aliens come, I am prepared".

    There were some guys in your weight category at the urbanathon, but not many.

    Show me a set of one-hand hand stand pushups and I will give you a jar of my home made granola

    I'm in that group with Myles and Amph, I eat and lose weight. Meats, breads, pastas, fruits, everything, doesn't make a difference...and I eat a lot of carbs... I guess I'm not meant to be a bodybuilder
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    My off season goal is more at the 270 and 280 range, my on season goal would be the 260lbs when I cut for show. I haven't been in a competition yet as I want to be really big and cut for that. I'm roughly almost 170lbs at the moment so I'm still a bit of time out,LOL. But I'll eventually get there.

    I have to say that one of my all time fav exercises are the front squats, I absolutely love them. Gets the front quads going like crazy.

    Oh, how about the late Paul Demayo? Now that guy had some quads, hence why they called him QuadZilla. I go by alot of his stuff in my training as I need the front quads especially for my first show when it happens eventually.

    Oh, Dorian Yates is another great old school guy. he has alot of very educational training vids that I watch on youtube.

    That's an awesome pic of you with Branch Warren. I hear that he's a super cool dude.

    That's correct on Franco. http://www.olympiawinners.com/

    LOL pokie22
    yeah, bodybuilders and fitness peoples will be the front line ! lol

    Hcarlton: I train many ectomorph guys and everybody get bigger and bigger.
    Maybe your genetic is not stuning, but trust me, you can add muscles if you do the propers things and eat well, and i dont talk about steroids or gh! I mean the clean way

    Nepenthes101: 260 cut ? Thats a great shape!

    Front squats are cool, but i prefer classic squat ! I love when ppl stop training in the gym and look at my squat set when the bar curl with barbell plates and my training partner scream behind me. made me proud of what im doing
    Are you a dumbell or a barbell guy ? For myself, i prefer dumbells workout. Dumbell press, sited dumbell press for shoulders etc. Im not a military press fan.

    Also, i dont know Paul Demayo, i will look on yahoo!
    For me, branch warren have the greatest quads ever. Coleman was not so bad too :P

    Dorian yates ! I think i saw his 'blood and guts' video like 50 times. 8 times olympia winner in a row, amazing.

    But the biggest, greatest bodybuilder in history is victor richards. He never compet at hight level, because he dont care about competition. But at one show, in the 80's, he was on the same stage as dorian yates for a guest pose, and dorian was at his best. Yates was skinny compared of vic. At some point, he stop posing and he look at victor and he was like: wtf!!!.

    A nice victor video: http://m.youtube.com/watch?gl=CA&cli...&v=Jq7p9ttcjN8

    And yes, branch is a very nice guy !

    Actually the only two guys to ever get the Mr O 8 times in a row and 8 times ever were Lee Haney and Ronnie Coleman. Dorian was from 92 to 97. 6 times in a row is still very impressive though.

    As for being a Dumbell or Barbell buy. I actually love both. The barbell helps me with my explosive power moves/training when I power clean the weight up and then begin the shoulder press.Some days I'll press the weight in front of me and others behind the head movements. Helps to be well rounded and thick. The Dumbbells I use for hammer strength training and for balance. I also have a pair of the EXF Elite rings and I train with those as well. I feel that it's very important to apply some ring training in with heavy weight training cause body weight training is very important as well.

    As with the squats, I do both the classic and fronts, just that I really love the front ones alot.

    I saw a thing on Victor Richards before. I agree that he's a very impressive athlete. I think that he should of stuck around as I think he would of had a good few Sandows for his mantle.

    And yes, 260 cut is my ultimate goal in the next couple or so years. Give's me something to look forward to and work towards.

    Oh, do you keep a log of your daily routine in the gym so to keep track of your progress? I do that on a regular basis so I know how well I'm doing so I don't hit any plateaus.

    I was wrong, yates won 6 times !
    but even 6 times is freakin amazing!

    I have a routine, i change everytimes i feel to. i dont write how many weight i lift at every workout, because i know it, and at each new workout i remember how many i lift the workout before.

    I really feel my body, sometimes i dont count my reps, i know when my hypertrophia is good enough. Sometimes i have to do one max rep, with a very heavy weight, to create a massive hypertrophia. for better grown.

    As bodybuilders, we grow everything, ourselves and our plants :P

    (by the way, sorry for my bad English, its my third language!)

    LOL, No worries. It's all good.

    I just like to keep an very accurate log of my routine and how much weight I work with from week to week, month to month, etc... I follow the Dorian Yates method like a religion. I want to make sure that nothing develops faster than the other and look all out of whack. Symmetry is everything to me cause I need to be very decent in my first competition. So far everything is working very well for me by following his methods. I really hope that I can meet the guy someday.

    Also, no worries on the English, it's all good.
