    Hi iLovemyLuxe....

    When you get use to my coaching style, you be prepared for these question: LOL

    Why are using a "modified version" and not the version the author outlined?

    Outline your "perfect" diet for me. Also, tell me how consistent you've been with that diet and for how long. Be honest so I can help you.

    I would think that even a 85 to 100 year old male or a 14 year old girl should be able to build at least an ounce of muscle in a year, don't you?

    Tell me what you believe to be the difference between a "juiced" person training program and a "natty" training program.

    And, tell me the specific things that we changed to make it more suitable for a "natty."

    If you don't know this and just followed the advice of the person who designed it for you, I understand. You should find out if you don't know and always know why you are doing everything you do.

    I'll help you out, iLovemyLuxe....

    Generally, a natural bodybuilder needs to:

    1. Give himself "more" time to recover each body part from its intense training session.

    2. Perform "fewer" exercises and sets per training session.

    3. Execute each exercise with "more" precision (less room for error) when stimulating the targeted muscle group for growth.

    4. Needs to be "more" consistent with his good habits.

    5. Needs to do all of the above for a "longer" period of time.

    6. Needs to demonstrate "more" precision with his diet (less room for error), be "more" consistent with his diet, and so so for a "longer" period of time.

    Please realize that everything that I mentioned above can also be said for a not-so-genetically gifted bodybuilder versus a bodybuilder who is genetically gifted. It really depends on how a person's body responds to these factors.

    Obviously, a juiced bodybuilder can be less precise with all these factors and yield "better" results. Or, they can execute all of the factor extremely well for a long period of time--and achieve AMAZING results.

    I put quotations marks (") around the words "more", "fewer", "better", and "longer" because those words really have no specific meaning until they are directly compared to something or someone else SPECIFICALLY.

    All natural bodybuilders don't have the exact same conditions and all juiced bodybuilders don't have the same conditions. They all can't be put in "one box." A hard working and dedicated, genetically gifted natural bodybuilder who has been training a long time can close the gap between a juiced bodybuilder who does not works hard, has average to poor genetics, and has not been training very long.

    You never want to sell yourself short based on "generalities."

    When it all comes down to it, it always comes down to a battle between "You Versus You" anyway.

    Train Hard. Think Big.

    my near perfect diet (well i beleive it should be for me) is my macros to build muscle, 75g fat 225g pro. 385g carbs been consistent with hitting them for 11 months tracking my progress the whole way, i have lost weight and gained bodyfat. I do believe anyone can build muscle but my doctor said the most i can do is hold onto the muscle i have atm with that low of T.

    You have a workout plan in place. That's a great start.

    You know about how many calories you are eating--and will get more specific by outlining in detail. Another great starting point.

    One thing you need to do is be patient while you are figuring everything out. You'll only been working out a very short period of time.

    What exactly are your goals? That's important for you to decide upon and information that someone else needs to properly help you.

    Are you trying to build as much muscle as humanly possible with a ripped six pack as soon as possible? Or, are you more of a performance athlete working out to become a better basketball player?
    AWW you skipped my questions? =( is there anything wrong with it?

    Also people tell me that losing weight is about diet. and the majority of my diet is rice. so will the carbs interfere with my fat loss if i follow my macros. thanks
    You can go here for an assorted of routine that will take you 45 minutes 5 days a week.

    Skip La Cour's Mass Machine Training Routines

    eating mostly rice isn't going to get the job done.

    If you want to lose that body fat, what people are telling you is absolutely correct. You must get knowledgeable about eating and execute a plan.

    Call me Otis, i have a problem. Im not too sure what the exact cause is, i assume there's some people on here that knows what their doing. Those are the people i seek advice from.

    Before i get into the problem, il give you guy an idea of how much i currently lift compound wise.

    Current weight-151lbs
    past weight-160 lbs

    currently lifts
    Deadlifts-225lbs-6-8 reps -4 sets
    Squats-225-4-6 reps- 4 sets (full squats)-Looking to increase, been off for a week and a half due to soreness from sprinting so, working my way up to 6 reps again
    bench press-185-4 reps-3 sets
    millitary press-155lbs-6-8 reps-4 sets
    lats pull down-150lb-6-8 reps-4 sets
    tricept push down-120-lbs

    all my other isolation workouts i've improved on as well.
    I curl-45lbs-8 reps-4 sets

    and a bunch of other stuff.
    now to the problem.

    as i mention above, i use to weight in at 160lbs
    when i was that weight

    these are what my lifts reflected:

    Deadlifts-205lb-8 reps
    squats-225lb-6 reps
    bench press-165lb-6-8 reps
    standing millitary press-155lb
    lats pull down-120lb 6-8 reps-4 sets
    tricept push down-120lb-6-8 reps-4 sets

    i know these might be identical but pay attention to the variation in body weight.
    I keep loosing weight and i dun fuly understand why.
    I lost like 9 pounds in like 2 months.
    my goal is to put on size, but i keep loosing weight, i suspect its water weight but im not too sure.
    I've never seen this fluctuation in my weight before. it's like really bad now. The good part is, my strength has increased throughout most of my workouts.

    my question is, why am i loosing weight and experiencing strength increase ?

    Hi muslcetronic....

    You didn't anything write about your EATING HABITS.

    Eating properly needs to be your number one priority when you are trying to pack on muscle mass. The way you eat will have far more of a positive affect on the way you look than weight training and cardiovascular training combined. It’s been established that at least 80 percent of the way you look and feel will be determined by how well you eat. You will look MUCH BETTER simply by making the necessary changes to your eating habits. The majority of your focus and energy MUST go to this important area of your life.

    Train Hard. Think Big.

    Hi, im 17yo, started going to the GYM since 1 year and 4-5 months, I never did free weights, my workout for 1 complete year:

    Everyday except 1-2 days -->

    Arc trainer 45 minutes
    Stepper 20-30 minutes
    Interval running 17-25 minutes
    Biking 15-22 minutes
    All pull-up kinds (20x4) (all 5 kinds) so total 20 sets of 20 reps (4 each pull up kind) with 20 push ups after each set (so 20x20 push ups total)
    Running 5 mins (speed 12.0)
    ABS 30X4 (4-5 different kinds, dont play lower)
    Lower back 20x4 (sometimes)

    and a calorie diet of about 1500 calorie.

    I lost over 40-45 pounds and gained alot of muscle, now I lowered my cardio to 250-400 calorie and my diet is the same.. about 400-700kcal carb 150-250kcal protein and 150kcal fat

    I do cardio running 2KM, and the pull ups is the same (without weights assist) 20x2 sets all 4 kinds of pull ups, with abs, squats and lower back, and 10minute running at the end of training, and swimming for 20-25 minutes..

    I take oxyelite pro.. will I lose fat and gain muscle? or lose both? or tone my body? whats the result will I get?

    This is a picture of me, btw thats before oxyelite pro..

    I want to go 10-12% body fat, im about 17% now..

    sorry I dont got a picture out of shirt, too bored to do that.. lol

    Shoulder Pain

    Hey man, on chest days when I bench, or do dips I feel a lot of pressure on my shoulders. They don't pop, and its not severe pain, but its uncomfortable. Any idea on what is causing this or what I can do to improve?

    Diet

    I am trying to bulk up as much as possible so what should my diet look like and should I be ratified 6 times a day? I hear so much different stuff from everybody. And would a weight gainer be ideal also should I be taking NO, creatine, a vita pack, and a pee work out? Just some things I see other people take.

    Hi HRodriguez93....

    I would guess that you are either using to much of your shoulder strength to move the weight from "Point A" to "Point B"--or you have some shoulder issues. Let's hope that it is the former and not the latter.

    Check out this video and let me know if there's a distinction or two that you find helpful.

    Hi tanner2811...

    As you've mentioned, there are many ways to go to get results.

    Instead of me writing out a generic "nutrition seminar", why don't you outline your current plan and I will give you my thoughts and some direction.

    Yeah...well....if you think like "the group" you'll get the same results as "the group." If that okay with you, then that's awesome.

    If you want extraordinary results, you will oftentimes need to think and take action much differently than the masses.

    Not all the time--just with the key distinctions.

    The challenge is to know with which ones? LOL

    What's your premiere exercise into having that really wide, thick, back to help your v taper?

    Also: Dumbbell vs. Barbell Rows, which is better for mass development?

    Ok, Jeffbelittle. Let me explain how this all REALLY works.

    Do you ever see a nice looking girl who stays in shape--but she has shorter legs, a long torso, and has a smaller chest? She has like and "H" figure.

    Then, you have another pretty girl who hardly works out--but she has longer legs, a short torso, and a big chest? She has like an hourglass figure.

    There's nothing the first girl can do to look as good as the second (if that's what you like). Her structure is just different.

    She can, however, work hard to stay in shape and look the very best SHE can look.

    So, how does that relate to your question?

    If there were a series of the "best exercises" that give you a "V taper" a hard-working Mr. Olympia champion like Jay Cutler would have done all of them a long, long time ago and would have an incredible "V taper". He does NOT (compared to many other bodybuilders) because there aren't any special exercises that will do that for him no matter how smart he is or how hard he works. He has to do the same basic back exercises just like everyone else does--and become the very best HE can be. Jay Cutler doesn't have the best V-Taper but he did develop his overall physique quite well, I'm sure you'd agree.

    Your job is to execute all of those back exercises with the utmost effectiveness and efficiency. Then, you let your muscle size, shape, density, maturity, and genetic structure take over from there.

    If you are using your back muscles during an exercise, then it will come down to the how well YOU, YOURSELF, EXECUTE the exercise that will determine if Dumbbell Rows or Barbell Rows are the best for mass development. A good argument could be made for both of them but, when it comes down to it, it's how well the person doing the exercise performs the exercise.

    Personally, I prefer Barbell Rows because I feel a person can be much, much more efficient with their strength and energy when they stay away from single-limb movements like Dumbbell Rows.

    Train Hard. Think Big.

    ...I feel dumb for never considering V-Tapers as a genetic thing... but it should be just like any other body part (lol idiot moment)

    Any tips for flexing your back? I'm nowhere near competition worthy, but I would like to know how to flex that lat spread so I can see progress over time
