If your diet is weak you will be weak and will lack proper recuperation for upcoming workouts. Many athletes are disciplined in their workout regimine but lack discipline in diet and nutrient timing and proper supplimentation.

I am a current member of a Feat of Strength ministry Team Impact. So in my line of work I have to be strong. Im 385lbs with pretty good powerlifting numbers. I currently train with with the strongest powerlifter in the world Donnie Thompson who helps push me to the next level along with me pushing him. I figure I will give everyone a short bio. I was a 4 time all-american football player at Gardner-Webb University. I had an opportunity to play in the NFL. I am Currently part Owner of Xcelerated athletics a sports specific training center which trains athletes from all ages. I started using Results from Atlarge Nutrition at first I thought it was like all other inferior products, but the stuff actually works. I have been using it for a little over 3 weeks I can tell an extreme difference in my stanima and workout capacity. This is also with a diet with proper carbs and protein divided into 6-7 meals a day.

Why are you telling this us? lol
And the 6-7 meals a day stuff is mostly bull. The only reason to do it is because of comfort, it has zero consequences on how you look or how much you can lift.

Rich is one of our newest sponsored athletes. He is an INCREDIBLY strong man by what Donnie Thompson, the strongest powerlifter in the world, has told me. Basically, he says that Rich's brute strength is as good or better than his own! That is saying a LOT.

Richard is not forum savvy. You are seeing his first posts. Rather than be pricks, let's welcome him and let him learn the ways of the forum... :)

He is a GREAT resource to have here!

Welcome to the forum Rich. Maybe you can give us all some insight on proper nutrition for powerlifters. We have a lot of talk about proper form and training routines, but not much on nutrition. I feel like I've learned a ton from you experienced guys since I found this forum a couple of months ago. I'm still amazed how many elite lifters all come together at one place and are willing to offer their advice and expertise. This sport is like no other in that respect.

If your diet is weak you will be weak and will lack proper recuperation for upcoming workouts. Many athletes are disciplined in their workout regimen but lack discipline in diet and nutrient timing and proper supplementation.

Rich the reason for this is that some people are just lazy. Going and training is the easy part you want to do that, but who wants to eat grilled chicken you gotta cook when popeyes has 12 pieces for 5.99 with a drink and a mouth watering buttery biscuit. Even the simple task of making protein shake is to hard for some people. The really bithc part is it's those people who will waste most of your time asking for advise the'll never follow.

Welcomr to the board bro.

That's like asking, "I caught a ball last week, do you think I'm ready to play outfield for the NY Yankees?" A little more info might be helpful...diet, training, training schedule, goals, etc, etc.

I actually live in Columbia,SC I train at compound with Donnie Thompson. To answer the new members question taking myoplex means nothing if your training does not make sense along with freqeuncy of workouts and rest. A supplement is just a supplement not a miracle worker.

Rich, welcome to the site! I had a childhood buddy go on to play football at GW, back in the mid 80s. One question, how in the heck do you handle that heat and humidity in Columbia?!?

I grew up in NC, but Columbia is one of the hottest places in this country!

Looking forward to your contributions here!

There's no secret to eating for powerlifting.

1. Get enough protein
2. get enough carbs - add carbs if you're gaining weight
3. Get healthy fats
4. Eat clean, not healthy - big difference

Eating clean is common sense. Doing it is another story. Not to mention, I've seen God's kitchen contribute to some huge numbers, so you can't preach that fast food is bad for you. I guess you could, but you're wrong. This sounds like more of the "Who's the best" threads again. Maybe I'm being cynical.
