    "Test all things; hold fast what is good.": 1 Thessalonians 5:21

    "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!"

    Chris- was that a serious question? Do you keep in contact with them or something? Also, thank you.



    I'm glad that thanks to my "I'm more ripped than most bodybuilders" training partner Eric, I can get some of my videos up online. I realize that most people may doubt when someone my size says they can squat over 3.5 xBW on an internet forum, but at least I can show you guys not only the form I use, but that I can actually do it. I also am always honest about the powerlifting gear I wear so that is obviously a big part of my lifting success so far.

    I am now 12 days out!!!!!!!!

    Yes it was Chris. We are currently trying to work out a sponsorship with Jon and 3-4 of the athletes from his gym. I have spoken with him several times and he is a really good guy. We hope to have something boned up after Thanksgiving. I am going to try to get them to post here, but as you can imagine they are reticent. Obviously, we would strictly moderate any of their posts and the subsequent responses from others. I will keep you updated.

    You never did answer the question...

    Awesome lifting, young man.
    Squats work better than supplements.
    "You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei

    I only got 4secs of the video, btw that's one wide, really wide stance you got there to squat. Why go so wide?

    Because it works.


    It's all about leverage and putting myself in the position I have the most potential to move big weights. For me, in that squat suit it's very wide! Some people like narrow stances, but they are just afraid to get on the box and strengthen their hips. They are mostly quad squatters, where I use much more hip and back strength to move my weights.
