    240 Here I come. Finally A Journal I'll Keep

    Well, I'm finally going to keep a consistent journal. I made one other attempt, but I got busy with contest prep and neglected it. So this journal should atleast take me up through the end of march. Basically, I'm working my way towards 240 pounds by the end of January. Bodyfat I'm not concerned about, because it's yet to become an issue. It'll actually be kind of cool if I get fat, to see how people treat me and such, since I've always been a skinny bastard.

    Currently I'm 193 pounds. I'm not sure as to my bodyfat, I believe I'm under 9% at the moment. Also, I'm looking to gain approximately 2.5 pounds per week. My diet will basically consist of plenty of shakes (protein/weightgainer,) potatoes/yams, brown rice, steak, and more steak for me, and the occaisional fruit. Most likely, I won't be keep track of my diet in here, it will strictly be training. Hopefully all will go well.

    Glad your keeping a journal again.....it will be interesting following your growth. IMO, I think you need to gain that weight over a longer period of time, but who am I to tell you what to do LOL. Be careful not to get those ugly stretch marks that folks get when they gain quickly like that. Good luck Chase.
    peace-

    No offense big guy but if you want to be 240 at a decent bf it's gonna take more than 5 months. That equates to 9.4 pounds per month and 2.3 pounds per week. I believe.

    Not to take away from your goal because you do have a great building block from which you can work with. I'll be very envious to say the least if you do accomplish your goal.
    All the best and I'll make sureto keep up with your journal.

    "I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do--this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.
    So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God's law; but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God--through Jesus Christ our Lord!"

    Well, like i said, bf is not an issue. I'll let it go until about 25 percent. And I do plan on doing 2.5 pounds per week. Generally 10 pounds a month, up until the end of January.

    You can be a fatty like me!


    Maki, he said he didn't care about his bf%. If so, he can do it if he really wants to. I will tell you this Chasey, eating in the way it will take to gain that much weight will be creating a bad habit which will stay with you if you are not careful. You should take some before pics, and then chronicle your gain it weight with pics.

    Rows are overhand, my grip is about 2 inches into the rough stuff. I'm bent over in a manner such as a deadlift where the bar would be slightly below my knees and I pull it up them to my waist.

    S'how I do em.

    Chase, I'd be worried about the same thing. You can get addicted to bulking. And cutting from 25%, you might lose a sh*tload of muscle if you stay natty. A lean 220 would be more impressive than a fat 240. But hey, go for it.

    Yeah! I'm lookin forward to joining the fatty club. But I do believe that's a great idea as far as the pictures go. I'll definately do that. I understand I will be creating a bad habbit, which will probably be very difficult to fall out of immediately. But I do plan on starting a very strict contest diet afterwards, which may last 6 months up until my next show which may be late June or early July. The length of my diet will be determined by how much bodyfat I have accumulated obviously.

    If 6 months of hardcore dieting doesn't drive me insane, then I think I can keep muscle loss to a minimum. I want to compete in teen nationals next year badly, and I'm focused like never before.

    I'd like him to prove me wrong. I'm not being a jack ass I just don't think it's possible. You can't force growth upon the body.

    Believe it or not, he was over 200 pounds. He actually won the novice heavyweight portion of the contest. How? I don't know. And he ended up winning heavyweights at teen nationals. But he was almost 3 years older than me.

    Maybe the dude just had puffy nips. I have them and I haven't touched any steroids. I think the guy that goes by KenShamrock on here had pretty low bodyfat with the same thing.

    I don't really doubt that he had taken them, but realize that I've met like 20 people so far with the same puffy nipple crap. He is an assface though.
