    I try my best. As for the ol' dipstick there's no fill plug on my front differential. It goes in through the... dipstick hole. Ditto for the transmission.

    This is important stuff. Take note so you can service your mom's stationwagon.

    I mostly just paid attention to the Avengers movies for the first and second one. Then after that I started watching all the movies and now I feel like it takes a long time for the sequels to come out for the standalone movies. I think Spiderman's the only one that's had 2 movies since 2015. I saw Ant Man 2, but not Ant Man which came out after Avengers 2. Also I have seen both Guardians of the Galaxies movies, but the first one came out in 2014.

    Damn it was the start of 2014 so 5 1/2 years. Hard to believe that much time has passed. You can't do a drive-by post without giving us a proper update. You obviously didn't stop training like a lot of people here which is good to see.

    I have missed only 3 months of training in the last 5.5 years and that was due to torn bicep tendon summer of 2016 3 weeks out from competition.

    Training more or less 6 days a week between 2 different gyms and my own garage gym. My middle son and stepson are now in their early 20's and both are training regularly now too; since last October.

    I've competed 7 times since I was banned and got injured in 2017 while attempting a 605 squat; tore my groin but finished the competition. Came back in 2018 with a 1580 total at 50 years old; 620/345/615 and that had me ranked 2nd in the US for my age/weight/class. I haven't competed since due to work commitments and timing issues. But I will compete again.


    Changed jobs twice but I've been at my current job since October 2016 and things are going well. Still together with Miss LisaSkinnoble and we are celebrating 14 years together next month. She still trains with me but her back has been giving her some issues so no more powerlifting for her.


    Also bought myself a few nice rides some have come and gone and I currently have a 2016 Charger SRT and a 2017 Corvette Z06.

    Did the biceps tear on deadlifts? I couldn't remember if you did any strongman training as well because I've seen it also happen flipping tires and loading stones. 620/345/615 @ 50 is a great achievement.

    I wish I could say I was even half that disciplined since you've been away but I took nearly 4 years off during 2015-2018. Started training again this year and won't be stopping again. It was pretty humbling getting back in there but it feels good now. I log my workouts but don't follow a program — I train whatever I feel like training and depending on how the warmups go I'll go heavy, go for a higher rep PR, or focus on volume.

    Life is good indeed. We were discussing the C8 in here a few weeks ago. Mid-engine will upset the Corvette faithful but it's something I always wanted to see from Chevy after Ford brought back the GT.

    Never did any strongman stuff, and I tore it in the gym but not lifting; believe it or no pulling on my knee sleeves. I'd had shoulder pain for years so I am guessing it was very damaged and partially torn and that was the proverbial straw. It tore at the shoulder not the elbow. Docs wouldn't even repair it they said I was too old and our healthcare system considers it cosmetic surgery since it's not necessary to fix. Took 3 months off and came back stronger, so....

    I will never stop again. When I went back to the gym after that 3 month layoff I felt Like I was starting over. Only took me 5 months to get back to where I was but it was a rough 5 months. That's why when I tore my groin in 2017 I was back in the gym after 2 days. Just stayed away from squats and deadlifts for a month or two.

    I'm not a huge fan of it but I need to see one in person. I only got my C7 Z06 last November and it went straight into storage for 5 months so it's still new to me. Not looking to get another car for a few years now or Lisa will kill me. I'm happy with both the beasts I got.....for now....

    "The current minimum wage in Australia is $740.80 per week, which equates to a minimum hourly rate of $19.49." That's $13/hr USD so almost double there.

    You won't get big eating 100% healthy unless you've got a full time chef preparing meals for you or you live at a restaurant. Look at all those IFBB pros who have their wife/gf cooking for them while they brag about eating clean. Left to their own devices it'd be protein shakes, slop, rinse repeat.

    Anyway I've been making all my own meals for some time now now but once I started training again I realized I needed a little slop in there once or twice a week to get the calories up. KFC/McDonald's/Burger King is still on the banned list. I won't be eating any of that again. Pizza and the occasional Subway — yes.

    My goal was to get as big and as strong as possible so diet reflected that. At least 8000 calories a day. 3-4 2hr workouts a week lifting heavy took care of the rest. I lost weight when I stopped training, waist size went down, and still looked like I was lifting.

    Here's a potato quality progress shot a couple of weeks after joining a gym in January. Didn't waste away.

    Do you go for protein heavy stuff, or just try to get as much food in general?

    I eat pizzas by the whole when I order them. I'm not sure how much protein that is though.

    I plan most meals around protein but the junk is for the calories. You need a surplus to build muscle. You need a certain amount of protein to build muscle. You also need testosterone to build muscle and a diet low in fat is not going to cut it since androgens are synthesized from cholesterol.

    Getting back to your diet I think there's nothing wrong with eating a pizza if you're going to train that day or if your diet is primarily clean and you're just adding pizza to get more calories or for the simple fact that you enjoy eating it.

    Yeah I'd have to assume that you're getting enough protein in. I guess the only difference is if you got it all bunched up between 1-2 meals or you had it throughout the day. Like most any type of Italian food is going to load you up on carbs with protein coming only from cheese and meat but only meat as more of a flavoring agent. Not a big fan of curry for that matter, and most "hearty" soups are pretty disappointing as well. In a burrito alone I've always liked how you can get like 3-4 separate sources of protein and fiber. Maximizing protein and fiber and from a variety of sources has a good overlap with fats and carbs.

    No idea why he'd want to lose much more than that because he looks good. At 6'6" with a decent frame 255 isn't really that heavy. It's like 215-220 at 6ft. Heavy if you don't lift weights, have narrow shoulders, sh*t genetics, etc., sure, but he doesn't fit that category.

    My theory is you can probably get away with having one vice. Like alcohol, smoking, deep-fried food, etc. but it's when you start stacking them that you run into problems. The biggest changes I made to my diet was no KFC/McDonald's, no milk, no caffeine, and no energy drinks. I don't drink much and these days rarely more than 3-4 beers every couple of months. Had a blood test 18 months ago and cholesterol was low. It's always been normal but I was kind of surprised to see an L there. Normal range = 3.9-5.5 mmol/L and it was 3.2.
