way too much nonsense in this thread


I was 245 LBs in high school @ 30% BF. I'm now 198 lbs @ 14% bf

just lift hard and eat small portions. What's so complicated about that?
What was your training regime like how many days a week how many sets and reps how much cardio, which exercises etc

That dude is way to bulky
He's a body builder. So for his goals, he is doing just fine.

Just because you train like someone doesn't mean you'll look like them. Your genetics are different.

I suggested his videos because he offers good general advice not because you will look like him.

How This "Nice Guy" Steals Women from Jerks

Did you know a woman can be totally UN-ATTRACTED to you...

And she'll still sleep with you?

If you've ever seen a girl go home with some asshole she didn't even LIKE, you know this is true.

But how is this possible?

Because deep inside her brain, sexual desire has nothing to do with what you LOOK like...

And everything to do with how you make her FEEL.

Matt Cook knows this all too well.

Matt is a nice guy... but he steals women from JERKS all the time.

In this free video training below, he'll show you how he does it:

How to Control Her Emotions and Make Her Chase You

It's simply not efficient unless you are a very advanced lifter.
Split/whole body doesn't matter at all to me. I've done both and they're both highly effective. I'm ripped and muscular right now from eating clean and doing whole body workouts, with cardio, 5xs per week.

Shirtless pic is from 2014. Best I've ever looked but I'm at 80% of that level now

Red shirt pic is about a month old. Not super-ripped but I'm still lean & muscular.

Sometimes 6 and I can maintain that for months, especially when I'm eating super clean and minimal (which I've been doing for the past 2 months). I get a lot of flak for this but I do not believe in overtraining. I train hard and I go all-out every time. I can get complacent at times but very rarely will I exercise less than 3xs per week and I maintain a pretty solid devotion to the same austere bland diet year round.

just FYI guys, you can be ripped eating moderately clean and drinking mild amounts of booze (or even heavy amount of booze say 1 day a week)


the important thing is eating the proper amount of calories required to get shredded

This post should be a sticky. I wish newbies would take note, this guy is doing what it takes to have a good body.

What are you now, Espi? Upper 40s? And he still looks like those pics.

Serious question - how is the libido?

The right question.
It's bad that we have to ask these questions, but it's reality. The T crisis is real.

I would imagine that Espi is doing just fine, due to the high amount of heavy lifts he's doing. Box jumps and deadlifts specifically.

Cashews and almonds are gold for that sort of thing, too.

My testosterone is hanging around 700 right now. Got it tested a week ago.
When I was working out much harder like Espi it hovered around 500-550
So now I do heavy deadlifts and sprints (deadmill sprints now that it’s winter)
I stopped any redundant cardio an opted for a loaded pack and a 4 mile hump when it warms up.

Im a bowhunter and tackle bad a$$ mountains. So I’ve tailored things to my lifestyle. I have a good six pack and higher testosterone as a result.

Awesome dude on the lifts did you increase the weight at all? If you did was it weekly or monthly or not at all?

I workout 3 times a week, never more than an hour each session. I never could do more than 3 times per week and function like a normal. I get serious overtraining symptoms that way. Even now I do 2 weight days followed by an cardio only day. Rinse and repeat.

Was thinking doing something similar 1 day weights kettlebell lifting jump rope 2nd day lighter weight workload some polymeric and jump ropes. 3rd day just polymetrics jump rope and light kettle work and 4th day all cardio
