          Yes...it will be good to meet some of these "E" personalities I've grown to like. I'm actually a nice guy in person!

            Bingo! Why do people bite?

            Is it because we are so unsure of our own beliefs that we immediately assume a defensive position? All we do is give credence to some of these wacky ideas that various people come up with. By the way bodyfx2, I don't mean to single you out at all. It's something we're all guilty of.

            That people feel so compelled to respond is a curious thing. It's the only thing that gives forum trolls any power!

              Actually, I am 100% sure of my beliefs. My position is not defensive when it comes to TA. I just don't want any young lifters to buy into his ridiculous principles and quit training after a year with little to no results.

              But still...I do my BEST to ignore him. However, to me he is like a clown riding a uni-cycle in front of my building every day. I can ignore him only so long before I need to question the purpose of his existence, LOL.

                He is lying. I have seen his pictures before. Also, he would be 192 lbs or so at 3 percent. He would be about like Layne as he is around that weight when he competes at 3-4 percent.


                ARe you blind or stupid? Take your pick.
                TA, You do realize that you are 3 - 4 percent muscle.

                I hope this helps.

                      Well, I will hold back on that until I desire to have Craig Titus as my permanent training partner

                        Thanks John,
                        I'll be at the scivation booth so make sure you say hi if you are by that way but i'm definately making a point to stop by the MD booth.

                          Jeff,
                          to be honest I think you are pretty solid on your macros. If anything you could reduce protein/fat a bit; if you get stuck with fat loss perhaps take fat down to 20% of your daily kcals.

                            Well just because you don't know much about pro natural bodybuilding doesn't mean it's not the 'big leagues' as it is for natural bodybuilders. As to whether I could cut it or not with the top competitors if I took steroids... that is pure speculation and there is no way to know... so why bother speculating about it? why did I decide? Well I never really had to decide as to be honest I've never seriously considered using. to be honest it's just not for me. It's expensive, illegal, and when abused can be dangerous and like any drug it can be addicitive; not physically but certainly psycologically as I have seen this first hand. To me bodybuilding is a hobby, I love it and it's a big part of my life; but it's not my entire life. My goal was to be able to compete against the best in the world... now I can compete against the best natural bodybuilders in the world. What's wrong with that? I have absolutely NO ill will at those who choose to take steroids. None whatsoever. That is a personal choice, it is just not my choice. I have quite a few friends that use steroids; we get along fine. It's not 'the juicehead' vs. 'the snotty natural guy' like I said, bodybuilding is part of my life; not my entire life... why would I let it get in the way of having friendships with good people?

                            As far as people rolling in big time supplement contracts... six figure? lol. There might be a very very very small handful rolling in six figures. I know that most guys; even with companies say like MRM; a decent size company; are lucky to get maybe 20 grand a year. I'm not going to speculate but my guess is that may not be enough to cover their bill for the year for food, drugs, travel, etc. You may or may not know this but I am sponsored by scivation and I'm not going to discuss specifics but they take care of me. I've been in several of their ads, am a co-author on their new book, work at all the big trade shows; hell I get all my expenses covered (travel, hotel, food, transportation) to go to vegas and columbus, not too shabby of a deal. I may not be getting 20 grand per year; but I'm also not spending a chunk of that on anabolics. I also have all my travel, entry fees, and supplements covered for any contests I do as well as guest posing.

                            Again, I hold no ill will towards those who have chosen a different path; that's their choice. I'm not going to judge them for it. Hell I've watched the olympia the last few years as a fan, just as I watch every natural bodybuilding show as a fan. I enjoy going to local shows as much as big shows; I LOVE BODYBUILDING; just because i've chosen to compete in natural bodybuilding over IFBB bodybuilding does NOT mean I am not a fan of both. In the end bodybuilding is a personal endevor and you should be true to yourself and your motives. I have never had any desire to do steroids; I would never START doing them because I was jealous or felt jaded.

                            -Layne
                            Respect and thank you for taking the time to reply in great detail.

                            Cheers Layne.
