    Chris.

    Foremost, let me be an extension of everyone else's comments and say that we are really happy to have you posting here. You've been giving really thorough answers which have been wonderful and greatly appreciated.

    Here's a good one for you -

    Ben Pakulski told me one time that he believes anyone (with the exception of people with substantial genetic limitations) can turn pro. Keep in mind, he was speaking about male pro bodybuilders in the IFBB.

    Now let's take some elements out of the equation such as structure, muscle bellies, etc. Let's consider just the ability to gain muscle and get in shape. Do you think anyone (sans big genetic deficits) can achieve the muscle mass and conditioning of a pro given unlimited drugs/food/training?

    I know that 'big genetic deficits' is a pretty subjectively vague term, too.

And usually I am always bothered in back of my mind that I am not getting any real protein [ except milk n cottage cheese and some soy that makes no more than 40g], and it leads me to believe that I am gonna lose hard earned muscle or gain back hard shed fat, [ we heavily eat rice, potatoes, fruits in these days]. It's a big psychological burden. What to do to make the situation slightly better. I cannot just rely on Whey.
    Try these combos:
    1. Rice or Quinoa and beans or lentils
    2. Bread and peanut butter
    3. Vegan protein poweder (Pea)
    4. Tofu

    Those are all non animal products and will provide a full amino acid profile

    That is a tough question. The way I see it so many could become pro but they do not come in condition. They are not in shape of enough. Provided you have a decent physique with no crazy weaknesses and come in shredded you will most likely turn pro. It also comes down to who shows up. I don't believe that anyone can grow huge though. If that was the case these pros now would bigger and bigger every year. There is a genetic cut off where your body will not grow anymore no matter what you do.

    Nice display! I never really look back at my pics too much. It is kind of cool to see the progression. I have some recent ones I will post at some point.

    1. Whey Isolate Vanilla from Universal and Carbo Plus (digests great for me considering my intestinal issues and I never crash)
    2. BCAAs (Atomic 7 Grape) Most Leucine per serving! Leucine is king and has science to back it up
    3. Creatine monohydrate (good ole faithful)
    4. Glutamine (Helps with intestinal health as well as keeping the immune system strong during intense training periods.)
    5. CLA (pre contest) (body composition and immunity)

    I use these supps both offseason and contest and did before I was with Universal as well. I must say after seeing first hand their own manufacturing plant, their products are spot on and high quality. They purchase all there own raws and formulate them on site. No bull ****!

    Are you located in the US?
    Thank you for the answer

    No, I'm from the UK. How come?

    Chris,

    What would you say is the "ideal" weekly routine for a natural trainee?

    Full body? Upper/lower? PPL? Bro split?

    How much time should pass between each workout?

    Thanx

    That is almost an impossible question to answer accurately! You must take into account; years lifting, individual recoverability (personally I am slow in recovering), and nutrition. Generally one body part per week. Not full body or upper lower if you are trying to build muscle. That is my opinion. Taking 2 full days off per week. Training 5 days per week. IN and out of gym in 60-90 mins.

    3-4 exercise per body part
    3-4 sets per exercise
    8-15 reps per set
    rest 60-2mins depending on what muscle group (example shoulders vs legs)

    Thanks bud! Yes, too many people train with EGO and weight lift. They do not actually "body build."

    Your welcome bud! Find what works for you. Start with a consistent base and work off that plan. Never change your plan all the way around. Good luck!

    Chris thanks again for all the answers, here is an interesting question that I can't seem to tackle!
    If I'm doing cardio after my workout and taking yohimbine during it so it kicks in when I start cardio, will the insulin spike from my intra workout BCAAs interfere with the yohimbine?

    I am going to say now. By the time you hit cardio I assume insulin levels will be on the decline. Although that is just my educated guess!

    Thanks for all of the help and advice Chris! I have an easy on for ya.

    Most of us with wives and girlfriends look to us for training advice(non competitive) and i am curious what advice you would suggest that we give them for getting beach ready. I assume that they are not willing to do 20 sets per body part like we would, so what is a good simple plan that you might suggest. Nutrition advice is also welcome. Thanks.

    Chris, what's your thoughts on how the IFFB, as an organization, is operated? As in the way competitors are treated, winnings, turning pro shows into mock pool parties (bikini and MP), Physiques like Branch placing above guys like Cedric, contest coverage, etc...and how would you improve it?

    Add it to your post workout shake or juice intra workout. I am assuming it is flavorless? Flavorless Leucine is very bitter and strong not so favorable taste.

    That is very hard to answer considering diet and training is really individualized. I would say minimum training? 4 days per week weights, spending most time with multi- joint exercises, 3 exercise per body part, 3 sets each exercise, 10-15 reps per set, and good smooth controlled tempo. Cardio post workout 20-30 mins of HIIT. Diet tips? Do not go hungry? Hungry = poor food choices. Try and eat a minimum of 4 complete meals per day. Fruits, vegetables, lean meats, and healthy fats. Must put priority on planning for food. No plan = bad food choices.

    Very good question. I am new to the IFBB so I do not have a lot to say yet. I can say that condition carries a lot of weight over symmetry. People will argue otherwise but It is true (hence branch). The pool parties are not my thing. I HATE that scene as well as the party life. Def not for me. Will never go.

    I just love competing! I do not care what really goes on for the most part. I enjoy pushing myself and being the best that I can be. I compete for me. I never thought I would ever get sponsored or become a pro. Never in my mind did I think it was possible until North Americans in 2013.

    I do dislike bikini and men's physique. Just not my thing. Especially woman's bikini. I would like to see previous MR O judge the Olympia contest. That would be great.

    Chris

    Quick question as you are good at digestion advice.

    I'm recently struggling to get enough food in which comes and goes so 2 questions.

    1. How come I go through phases of a few weeks of eating easily enough and eating right until I'm full and then I will go through a week phase of having no appetite and really struggling to eat anything other than simple sugars and bad foods

    2. When im in the phase mentioned of lack of food I am adding 2 scoops of carbo plus in with my shock therapy pre workout but wondering if mixing those together pre workout can effect one another

    Would love to hear your thoughts
    Better looking then most of the misc crew

    No twitter or Facebook crew
