    Thanks mate .... yeah I could go for a while working up to a good single , maybe next off season when Im holding a bit of bodyfat again. Leaning down again now for the BB comp season in early 09. I am perpetualy the 75kg guy now in a 100kg body haha .. and now at nearly 40 I listen when my body says 'what the f**k are you doing ? '

    Think its very important even for a bodybuilder to maintain that top end strenght.

    Only injuries is knees play up when I go too heavy ( for reps ) squating .... but nothing is quite so satisfying , catch 22 !

              455x3 is damn fine. And just wondering how you dropped down 65lbs in body weight? how long did it take you?

              My goal is to drop 35-40lbs and get back down around the 250's....its just a more comfortable body weight for me LOL

                thanks bro. it took almost a year. the first couple months i wasnt really dieting. just kinda watching what i ate. that started in like november. then in march i was 258 when i started my diet. i just did no carbs and melted. all i ate was red meat eggs and bacon. every now and then i switched it up with chicken. once that stalled out after a couple months i started cycling them. it went 0,0,150,100,50,0,ugly. my ugly day i did whatever i wanted. some days that meant fast food 3 times. that took me around 225ish. then i just started eating clean. now im around 210. i didnt really lose much strength until rescently but i completely changed my workouts since i joined the military. i hadnt even been lifting heavy for a while. i was actually stronger for a while when i was just eating red meat.

                  Thanks for posting that...I'm slowly lowering my carbs each week and upping my cardio. Right now my main carbs come b4 and after training and I'm up to 30mins cardio 4x's week after my workouts. NO carbs after 6pm started this week although I've never really eaten a lot at night anyhow, just maybe a bowl of cereal haha with 2 kids there are lots of yummy cereals around to eat. I've had some great help from a few MD members on diet ideas (thanks ScorpioChick). The thing is that I really want to make some "life" changes that I can stick to instead of doing a drastic diet, which would work of course, but I'd rather take the weight off slowly and be able to keep it off with good diet habits like you did.

                  It's motivating - thanks!!!

                    glad i could help. once i started seeing results it was easy for me. now that im this low i cheat all the time. but i do so much swimming and running along with mma that i can be alot more lax with it. it seems like you are on the right track already. keep it up!

                    • I pulled 540lbs @ 220, always been more comfortable sumo style. That was raw, just a belt. I've never worn a suit before but always wanted to train with one.

                                Very nice. What was your weight at the time? Was it a comp or in the gym?
