    7-8 cals offseason (and don't get fat)??? and you go with 0 g carbs month before comp??? that's a huge huge difference...with such difference you must put ton of fat in the offseason if you can maintain muscle on 0 carbs month before comp or loose ton of muscle if your cals maintenance is so high.
    somwhere you wrote that you're growing into to the comp? On 2000-3000 cals? so you grow easily on restricted calories but having problem putting on size,fat on megacalories??
    can you post your offseason 7-8 calories diet? I don't think that you know how much food that it is...dorian yates at highest bodyweight got about 5-6 clean calories,and that's at 300lbs bodyweight. and you are taking 8000 shitty cals at what bodyweight? 210?? and not putting fat?

      And cry me a river about having a shitty hand dealt to you. You don't know how bad it can really be...
      Junior just a question why in EVERY post do you follow Tipsta around the board posting a bad pic. He was in mid pose and already said he was in a fight for his life I give the guy credit for competing. I know another guy who came back after having cancer, was he as good, nope, but he was glad to be back.

      I made a comeback from serious injury and in my first show back got 6th the guy that got first I went on to beat him ONLY 4 mos later when Tip and I teamed up. First contests back after a serious illness are tough and more of a journey than the outcome. Geez! lets see what he can bring to the Masters Nationals or Team U before judging him on that pic.

      Finally A LOT of this is genetics, just because someone isnt an IFBB pro doesnt mean their theories are wrong or what they preach doesn work. I get guys looking WAY better than I ever have with my theories, I bet Layne has too, so has Tip, etc. you cant judge knowledge on pics alone.

      Some of the best coaches sucked at their given sport or rode the pine, why are they good coaches? Because the game never came naturally to them, they had to make due with what they had and perfect their techniques just to keep up. Id bet MOST IFBB pros would make horrible prep coaches.

      Anyways....

        Jason,

        I like what you wrote there.

        I work in the software development arena where there are people of varying talents and egos. I have have had management that would take great offense if underlings were of superior talent to them because they would take it as a threat to their position.

        Then there were people, like my dad, who knew how to make his employees shine. Make them perform better at their job than they they ever could do. They do this because they know that by being associated with cultivating such talent it reflects highly on you as a manger.

        Same applies to sports. Those people who helped athletes achieve greatness get great pride at seeing their theories, techniques, etc working.

        But, many that I've seen in the local contests really didn't want the spotlight and would shy away when their clients won trophies and tried to share the achievement with them

          WOW Vasculitis! That was on one of those Mysteries of the ER programs my wife likes to watch on the Discovery Health network (she doesn't get enough of it on the job in a busy Emergency Room).

          From what I gathered, there is no cure, it comes and goes as it pleases and it's very, very painful. All that doctors can do is prescribe meds to help make the symptoms more comfortable.

The only thing I wouldn't let them do was exploritory surgery.
            Not to hijack, but after how many days did you get the predictiable "It's all in your head" prognosis. My wife had that given to her before they diagnosed her with Crohn's Disease

              I don't want to jump in the flame fest as I've already had my man-period in this thread and get it all off my chest but I did just want to say DAMN. I have read about this vasculitis and talked about it with my friends in med school. It's pretty much the most nightmarish thing you could ever have from what I understand. I really hope you get better and don't have more flare ups. I like to think i'm pretty thankful for my health but things like this just re-enforce how much I need to appreciate it.

              • Junior, WOW bro I see you have been through your share. I just saw some other threads where you would pop in and immediately shoot down Tip and post that pic, and it finally just got old. Ive spoken to him over the phone and he says the same things as on here, but when he writes soemthing you dont get that old school new york charm with the delivery that sort of explains the tone. I get it you dont like his approach I just dont like to see someone hit someone repeatedly while they are/were down, Im sure you can feel that.

                Thanks for sharing. Mine, not nearly as bad, but its called chronic pelvic pain disorder, its basically knots/trigger points in your pelvic floor that get worse with activity, I had to quit lifting or running for three years drove me mad. And its a nightmare to piss with it, many men are misdiagnosed with it as having prostate problems, but thats not the case it muscular in nature. After many physical therapists and other treatments its just a nuisance now but it still inhibits me from really squatting as heavy as I really could. Most Drs say bodybuilding is the #1 worse thing for it, screw em, I wasnt happy not doing it, so Ill take a little pain. BTW, I went to Cleveland CLinic too to see some specialists, but they couldnt help. I had to fly to California to be treated by the top in the field, it wasnt cheap, but luckily my livlihood afforded me the oppurtunity that a lot of men dont get as its not covered by insurance.

                I guess you never really know someones full story.....take care.

                Maybe we can all hug now, lol. Heres to you staying in remission, I wouldnt wish what you decribe on my worst enemy (not that I have any), course I tell my wife I wouldnt wish pelvic pain on my worse enemy either.

                Good Luck

                  I find it interesting you say this when the person you are defending constantly attacks other's knowledge and opinion based on their pictures

I watch him attack people and talk to them like their morons, heck I've been attacked by him before I ever posted one of his pics. But unlike most, I poke back.

                    Tell you what though, I'll stop. I just hope he starts treating people with respect. I don't think it'll happen because a tiger can't change his stripes, but who knows I hope he proves me wrong. It's ashame because he has a lot to offer. We'll see.
                    Isn't the phrase a zebra can't change his stripes? Sorry, I must have drank some hatorade this morning.
