    Perfect example, shawn rhoden. Started his 2012olympia prep at 235, was on stage around 240. Put on 30-35lbs this yr for the 2013 season and was on stage around the same weight and looked the same in conditioning as well. Did the extra weight help him? No

    he competed 8 times in 2012 so that makes your point invalid seeing as how he was in contest shape all year basically
    Like all true bodybuilders I get my supplements from the manufacturer instead of a marketing company I get my supplements at www.truenutrition.com

    That is true. But he wasnt over 260 when he started his 2012 season. Anyways he blew up in weight, he was up to 280 at one point and the weight gain didn't help him bottom line.

    Well that's what he had claimed. Around 280. Might be true or false but anyhow, still proves my point dude lol. Anyway u put it lol.Extra weight gain doesn't necessarily help. Especially when its gained quickly. And people don't need to get that heavy in offseason to be competitive. Comes back to say people concentrate too much on offseason scale weight instead of what's actually underneath that 285lbs. Plain and simple.

    The extra weight has been put on over a course of a 8 month off season. Considering my usual off season weight is 265+ I don't think the weight was put on quickly. I say this to everyone all the time. Phil won the ny pro at 208lbs! He now competes at over 240lbs. He didn't do that by not eating any way you cut it. Genetics or not he needed to train and eat to build muscle! Bottom line is none of this really matters bc I do this for me. I'm happy and healthy and feel like I have made significant improvements.

    Thats good then. Phil though started at that time was 240ish off season. This yr he was in the high 260s when he started his prep (and obviously climbed) anyways as long as your healthy! Thats all that counts

But in my opinion i find it pointless adding so much weight. The faster you put the weight on, the faster it will come off. Mostly when it looks like extra water. Anyhow, thats my opinion, you might think differently but im sure alot of people would agree with me. Good luck to you Jon sincerely


    Very intelligent post!!!
