  1. it has been forever since ive logged on and i have made some changes to the car. I sold the bullitt wheels, which i have had for around 10years. was sad but sweet. i went with silver fr500s, ive always liked the fr500, but with so many people running them i went with silver. you dont see too many sets of silver fr's before the mickey thompsons came after also i installed a set of aluminum gt40x heads and an f303 cam with some 3.73 gears. after almost a year with the crappy noisy rocker arms, one of them just broke. so i just took them all off and put the stockers back on. the bolt hole on the first valve on the drivers side was a little buggered up so i used a slightly longer bolt to catch some threads. after about 10 miles the bolt snapped off in the head. i drilled it out and tapped it with a slightly larger hole. and the heilcoil all was good for about 25 miles or so, i used a grade 8 bolt that i dont think was totally up to par. well it snapped too. i went to drill it out, and put an extractor in it. bad choice... it snapped at this point i just know i ruined the head, i couldnt drill throught it. i found some tungsten carbide dremel cutting bits with a tip, and worked it until i got it all. best $30 i ever spent. on the way to the shop here are a few vids.. the exhaust is offroad h pipe with flowmasters and the f303 cam

    what i have been doing the past few months.

    Yea exactly, I am moving around all day and lifting/moving things.. my bench has gone up almost 100 pounds in the 2.5 months but still a good 70lbs off my old max. I would like to get back to it, and then some. I can def see how an office job wouldn't make it any easier.

    Yea, I have put on some fat. but I think I have seen such good results, because I was muscular a few yrs ago. now I am just reclaiming that muscle. but either way, I am surprised how fast I have gained it back....

    Hmmm thanks man, I may look into that when I do a good cut just before summer time.

    what i have been doing the past few months.

    I use to lift for strength no more than 5 reps. now I am doing higher reps and a ton of drop sets, more of a bodybuilder type workout. I am still putting on the muscle and will be for a while. I may do a 3 week cut cycle here in a few weeks but I still want to bulk a while. I workout 2 days in a row off a day on 2 off 1. right now my split is 3 day..day1. chest/triceps day2. back/shoulders-bicep/forearms day3.legs.. and I throw abs in there when I can.
  7. Ok so I haven't been on in a while, I have been checking in from time to time. I have been working out very hard and haven't had much time to get on the forum... Ok so a little back story.. in high school I was pretty skinny but had a small gut. I was around 180... fast forward to when I was about 20 or 21 I started lifting weights... I lifted for 3 straight yrs. my bench press went from 150lbs to 320lbs. I weighed about 225 at this time and had a pretty big gut. I was in size 36 pants... So I got stressed and lazy and quit lifting straight up and kept eating. I got up to about 265 at my heaviest. I lost a good bit of my muscle, although I couldn't see it b/c all the fat... This pic is after some weight loss. I was 238 in these pics. Ok now it took me 1.5 yrs to go from 265+lbs down to 176lbs.. towards the end of my weight loss I was doing it all wrong. lost way too much weight way too fast. so I lost a ton of muscle and what I did have was dehydrated. This is me at 176lbs I look sick way too skinny.. Ok Now fast forward 2.5 months to now. I have been eating very healthy 3k+ cals a day. a tub of protein a week and 2lbs of broccoli a week.. with creatine.. NO OTHER SUPPLEMENTS AT ALL.. This is simply MUSCLE MEMORY at work.. my muscles are going back to what they were before I quit lifting. So in 2.5 months I have put on 30lbs, a good bit of it is fat. But at 210lbs I wear the same exact clothes I wore at 176lbs. same size pants. so most of that is muscle.. I still have a ways to go before I am happy,but this is where I have been.. Arms went from 14.5 inches on dec 2 to 15.5 or 16 right now. I cant remember my forearm measurement but its around 13.5 so like I said I have put on so much muscle so quick because I use have all this muscle. It is just getting built back up. So in short over the past 2.5 months I have went from 176lbs to 210lbs wearing the same size clothes.lol

    Aside from not being able to sign in, I have been really busy with my workout program. these pics are around 1.5yrs apart. 1st pic is around238lbs 2nd pic is around 185-190. most of the difference is from cardio, I just started back with the weights 3 weeks ago.
