Lee tells it how he sees it no bull! But does he always train in the PowerTech warehouse? Pretty cool!

well, I just made a final decision to wait until October instead of August,  so until twelve weeks out, I will continue to try to build as much muscle as possible (especially in the shoulders and glutes) while keeping my body fat fairly stable. That way I'll at least APPEAR more balanced. 
 beyond that,  if I can drop about 5  additional pounds of body fat and I start cutting water earlier, I thiiiiiink  I'll look really good.
-================================================================================

Sounds like a solid plan!
What show are you doing in October?

Wishing you the best with your prep!

Lobsta...congrats on a very good showing in your first Pro show...Maybe a bit more work on your
stance-posture and a tiny bit more drying out, you will be good to go!

WES is that you in the middle?
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Wes I think every guy on the East Coast Masters has competed with the guy in the yellow trunks far right, he does every NPC NY show.
5  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Who Would You Like To Be Trained By? on: April 14, 2014, 08:44:21 PM
None of those.


How about:

1) Charles Glass

2) Chris Aceto

3) George Farah

4) Milos Sarcev

5) Dorian Yates

6) Hany Rambo

7) Kai Greene

Cool Dana Linn Bailey


Choose ONE!
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Yates for the intensity factor, Glass for the "scientific" training, Aceto for Nutrition and Dana cause she is beautiful/sexy...
6  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: what city has the hottest women you have ever seen? on: April 14, 2014, 08:34:33 PM
Yup, and it's the variety that blows you away...boriquas from the Bronx, Italian homegirls from Brooklyn, the bridge and tunnel crowd from Jersey and LI,  mixed in wIth all of the models and actresses and rich Milfs....t's ridiculous.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

LOL--Gotta love the bridge and tunnel women from NJ--Still sporting the high frizzy hair--HOT!

8  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Steroid Myths #1... all u gotta do is take more and you'll be a freak. on: April 10, 2014, 08:37:57 PM
i usually do arms on their seperate workout

4 set narrow grip bench

4 sets bar curls

4 sets skul crushers

4 sets hammer curl

4 sets overhead dumbel ext

4 sets preacher curl

4 sets rope push down single arm

4 sets reverse grip curl

something like that


i only do one "heavy" set for most exercises (still 10 reps or so) and then strip weight as needed for enough reps 12-15 of good quality
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------But they don't tell you what they "take" prior or "when" working out to help push the blood-nutrients into the muscle with that much volume...
9  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Jason Genova trains shoulders with Rich Gaspari on: March 24, 2014, 12:58:38 PM
When Rich had Rich Gaspari's New Age Fitness I saw him train back...he would go through so many training partners, nobody could keep up to his intensity.  He would do Giant Sets with wide pull downs-barbell row-low pulley rows and dead lifts...

Back in the day I saw Rich compete in either the 1983 NPC  Nationals.  Or the
1983 NPC Junior Nationals.   The contest was in NJ. Rich had this "boat neck" cut off sweat shirt, and I remember him back stage....His forearms were crazy veiny, never saw such vascularity !

I remember a Cutler video where he's taking glutamine by the mouthful, straight from the canister.  Discipline.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------In one of the Battles for the Olympia, Craig Titus did this, half went on the gym floor!

Tony great thread!

Regarding Sonny (RIP) I know you mentioned he ate a "high" carb diet and was always in great pre-contest shape-he and Milos were tight, do you think at that time they were using insulin?

They both trained with great volume and always said bodybuilders from the US were lazy and they both did not believe in over-training!  I read in some older 90's mags and spoke to Milos in person several times... they used to do up to 25-30 sets for smaller body parts like arms-chest-shoulders and even more for back and legs...think genetics or 'supps' helped them with this diet-training protocol?

What about Lee Priest, he also was a higher volume guy when it came to workouts...and I also know he liked his sweets and junk food-even pre-contest!

Miss the shapes of de Mey, Paris, Labrada, Haney, Christian, Ray, Levrone, Cottrell, Clairmonte Sarcev and Philly's own Alq Gurley....to me these were the "Golden Ages of Bodybuilding."  No offense to Yates, Cutler, Coleman, Heath, Wolfe and Greene.  All of these guys also earn a great deal of respect for the "freakishness" they brought to the stage!

NjFlex...did you ever compete in the NPC Golds Classic?
13  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: 2013 Getbig Awards - Best Physique on Getbig on: January 03, 2014, 08:26:36 PM

14  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: 2013 Getbig Awards - Best Physique on Getbig on: January 02, 2014, 11:16:05 PM
Wes sent you a PM...
15  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: 2013 Getbig Awards - Best Physique on Getbig on: January 02, 2014, 10:58:15 PM
Wes you are the man! Back than there were stacked classes like 22-25 maybe 30 guys in a class and you stood on stage with some of the best! A great accomplishment!

Now sadly, the sport changed a bit...no more camaraderie, physiques with great shape-symmetry get over looked...
16  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: 2013 Getbig Awards - Best Physique on Getbig on: January 02, 2014, 10:52:49 PM
Wes, I just found pics from the 2000 NPC S. Jersey, Lee Priest guessed posed! Some pics are here at my house, some are at my moms in her attic....

Yeah Paul is good, he calls me to judge with him at the PA-NJ  NGA shows.  A very nice guy, we always talk old school body building!
18  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: 2013 Getbig Awards - Best Physique on Getbig on: January 02, 2014, 10:41:04 PM

19  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: 2013 Getbig Awards - Best Physique on Getbig on: January 02, 2014, 10:35:39 PM
Wes true story...back in the day...I did a NGA Show, I won the light heavy, Shawn Rhoden won the middle weight and his cousin John Lancaster won the heavy weight.  I won the over all!

When ever I see Shawn we still talk about that, I think that was his 2nd contest!

Shawn is one of the nicest most humble guy to talk to!

Great contest huh?

Congrats on winning the Masters......that class was pretty stacked...........as a matter of fact,all of the classes were loaded.

I was a head judge for them when I did not compete in their Pro Division. 

Remember Boz?
The older lady photographer with the killer high heels, big boobs AND tight jeans always talking pics. And the female competitors always got photographed outside,  by that huge rock in front of the school, from bus parking aisle!>

I think we also competed together in the AAU show, was that at Fishers Tudor House in Bensalem>?
I won the AAU Champions of America by Larry FActor and the AAU South Jersey by Mike Charnick
