  1. Asian drugz yo.
  2. so's most of your workout routine.
  3. Leg presses are pretty good for increasing your vertical leap. You know, for like, people who work out to become athletic, not just to see what kind of numbers they can lift.
  4. Who the #$%# is Koko?

    I mainly work out to remain athletic. I want to get bigger but not huge.
  5. Remington = Koko
  6. yeah, clearly I havent seen any results.
  7. I work out yes..and build it up
  8. besides looking like a yard ape? k.
  9. I squatted 405 today 5 times. I could have done more, I think I can max 495 or 500+

  10. I can bench only about 50kg? <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/confused.gif"></A> but then again I can bicept curl 22kg :D

    Otherwise, I havent been to gym for ages so its not even worth telling <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/angry.gif"></A>

  11. I'm going to go to the gym shortly. I'll probably only bench like 120lbs (though, 120+ times). I'll also probably run another 13+ miles, like I did Sunday and Wednesday. I'm going for the not-looking-like-Koko look.
  12. where do you live?

    hahah Yeah right 120+ times, I cant even do that.

    Oh. so... skinny, weak, and not good looking? <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/wink.gif"></A>
  13. Scottsdale, AZ. In case you were wondering because of the time, it's a 24 hour gym and I'll get there about 2AM. If I do the full 13+ miles, I'll be there for like three hours. I hate going when they're busy.

    I don't do 120+ all in one go. I do sets of 20-30 three times. So, tonight will be:

    20-30 push ups x3
    20-30 chest press x3
    20-30 incline press x3
    20-30 pec deck / fly x3

    Then random shit like pull-ups, curls and dips, along with the running.

    Each day of the week I do a different muscle set (Tues = back, Weds = shoulders, etc). Since I target each group so much in one day and am trying to get more cut and build endurance, I do lighter weights.
  14. Thats nothing...

    at the end I do pushups wide and regular about 30 times only, since Im beat by doing heavier weights.

    Monday: Chest and bicep, Tuesday: legs, wednsday: Shoulders and forearm, Thursday: back and tricep. Friday: I just do chest again and try maxing out on other muscles, for fun.
  15. And as mentioned, you look like a yard ape. And how is that "nothing"? That's quite a lot of shit for one go. Also, when's the last time you ran/biked/etc any significant distance? How many pull-ups can you do? Lifting a shitload of weight isn't the same thing as actually being healthy.

    The funny thing is you say your goal is "strength gaining", and that everyone else "just wants to be lean and look good" as if that's so useful and not doing a bunch of hardcore lift is a waste of time. Yet, I'm certain I could outrun you for any distance, beat you in any sort of obstacle course and outperform you in virtually any sport. So you can lift engine blocks. I can lift just about anything I'd ever need to and I don't have to look like a gorilla to do it.

    EDIT: And I realize this looks/sounds like a stupid pissing contest, but my point is that the sorts of things you seem to try and belittle are certainly as, if not more, "meaningful"/useful/etc. Most people don't give a shit about bench pressing 300lbs, and for good reason.
  16. hahaah it was a joke when I said. "Thats nothing"

    I can do 12-15 pull ups wide grip, for when I do back and I can easily do double that, if not more, for close grip pull ups.

    I also do dips at the end of my chest workout, with no energy and easily do 10X3 if not more.

    most people are idiots, their reason isnt a good one. its an excude because they cant do it. I cant help my weight over 200, Im 6' and I have large bones. I also have a lot of muscle mass.

    what I can help is losing the extra 30-40 lbs of fat my body has. But I dont want to be too cut either. So realistically if I lost 25lbs in fat and gained 20 in muscle, that would be my goal.

    right now, all I care about is lifting more and more. I just want to be strong first, you dont have to be big to be strong. its all about muscle density. thats why you see cut, big muscular guys that cant lift. and you will see a smaller guy, lift more.

    Thats what I want, strength. Looks are secondary to me.

    Just like my philosophy on cars, looks are secondary. I care about the performance, moreso.
  17. Oh and Im certain you cant outperform me in ALL sports, I ride bikes 4 times a week, but maybe only a 2 mile distance or 4 at most.

    Just because I have mass doesnt mean Im active.
  18. You could really do 24-30 close grip pullups if you tried, or did you mean chin-ups? Either way that's damn strong no matter what.
  20. What is the difference between a pullup and a chin-up anyway?

    I can do like ~25+ with my arms in a sort of hammer curl position. Significantly less with a wide grip and palms out (probably like 15). Both of those are guesses. The last time I actually counted while trying to do as many as I could was months ago (and I did a little over 20 of the hammer curl-ish type).
  21. That may've been an exaggeration, but I'm sure most all wouldn't be a problem. And within the last seven days I've done almost 50 miles on the elliptical machines at the gym (which as far as I know is significantly more difficult than running and obviously much more than cycling).

    EDIT: Pissing contest in full effect.
  22. Pull-ups are when your palms are facing away from you, and are generally the harder of the two for most people. Chin-ups are palms facing towards you.

    That's great you can do so many. For allout strength and general fitness, you really cannot beat bodyweight exercises. I'd be impressed x10 if Koko can really do ~25 pullups in a single set. I've no doubt he's strong but even a few lbs of excess bodyweight can seriously make these types of exercises super-hard, not to mention the 20-40 extra lbs he said he could stand to drop.

    You never know, I guess.
  23. He can't do that with his body fat.
  24. Ahh... so then the hammer thing would be like a pin-up? But seriously folks. Yeah, my light weight definitely helps me be able to do so many (though I could lose some weight), but I'm okay with that. The only three reasons I work out is to feel better (actually trying to be healthy), get a little better at the sports I enjoy playing (mostly basketball) and look better (which I think most anyone will admit if they're honest). Getting overly muscular wouldn't help any of those, really. I don't care about numbers (reps, weights, etc) so long as it improves that stuff. I don't plan on doing any Olympic/competitive weight-lifting anytime soon.

    EDIT: I also don't go to the gym with the intent to impress anyone. Except totally hot chix, obviously.
  25. I carry 1000 pound weights from each of my testicles.
