My Leangains Journey
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
Martin benches 300, deadlifts over 600, and squats over 400. And he looks pretty freaky to me at that weight. With his shirt on he looks rather thin, because muscle weighs A LOT more than fat.
I just want to reinforce the notion that 225 at 6'2 is not fat. My two cents would be to consider GOMAD. Put on the weight and muscle you need and take the fat off later.
Sorry to post twice in a row, new at this, but if you are researching serious weight training, I would suggest Starting Strength by Mark Rippetoe.
Bro science? I thought that was supposed to be a term used to make fun of guys who were just going by he said she said, but I guess I was wrong. I take it now people just use it to bash others when they think they are right but can't come up with a rational explanation why? And calling "bro science" is supposed to magically make you right?
I think I did my homework on the subject matter quite well.
If you really think what I am saying is bro science, then can you please come up with at least one case where a person got to be 225 lbs at 6'2" and a reasonably low body fat percentage without taking steroids? You can't. And no, 17% is not reasonably lean, it's fat.
Hey, I am 6'2, 216 and 9 % body fat! Two years ago I was a fat slob weighing in at 246 pound...
Being just an old fashioned guy myself; I’m beyond tired of all these fragile mama boys (and girls!) with powder in their gluteus and soft pillows under their arm pits that cannot recover from their 3 days a week abbreviated “strength” routine…
