i remember some of the old ads,,i know u used metrx back in the day,did connelly ever formally try to get u onboard to represent them?

back in the day Met Rx had the BASE and the Plus. No product compared. It was stupid to change the formula.
anyone who used the base and plus, i'm sure did not stay on board very long using the new met rx formula.

i never met connelly, but i did get a contract with EAS from Bill Philips.

1- right NOW. The 202 class is bringing conditioning back, and to a level we have not seen in a long time.
The bloated stomach is long gone, and rock hard ab's are back.

dont know as of yet. i'm enjoying a great offseason with a bunch of guest posings over the summer.

even though i'm 43, i dont feel that i'm done yet, and dont feel the need to rush into anything. it took me 16 years to get here, why not do it right. maybe i should never had competed last yr and took the yr off to settle, but it's working out great for me right now with the added time in the gym. the one thing that i battle with...i'm sick of sucking down into a weight class, so who knows...maybe i'll stay around 212 for my next show and mix up with some freaks in the open.

it's funny, every guy i speak with that is in their early 30's say...noway at 40 will i be doing this.
i thought the same way when i was 33 and now that i found a good grove in training, past the ego stage, at 43 i feel good.

i just want to do it right, and not rush it.

i get alot of people saying...dont get huge and lose your v-shape. its not about getting huge for me, its all about not sucking down to make a weight anymore.

it was not enjoyable trying to make 198 all those years on the national level. and now, i just dont know what to do.
so thats why i'm doing NOTHING....lol

i here ya vin,but what ur saying about getting huge in the 1st place that wasn't your goal or bodytype,think about all the guys u trained with or friends that were heavier or appeared bigger ,then u stripped down then it was all over due to your overall look,thats as important as trying to get bigger or being big.its all relative and everyone know matter what they do,take,force all peak size wise,its shape,structure,joint size,that u have no control over.you got enough respect over the yrs with what u had and did with it.its a tough challenge to take your body clean,unnatural and put it to yrs and yrs of eating to gain,leanout,train heavy,train with more intensity,over and over ect.fun stuff.

Vinny,

I would love to see you go against someone like Hide who hovers around 215-220 but would really love to see you in the 202, maybe do some damage there and move up..

Will you be at the Universal booth at the Ct. Europa at the end of the month?

when you say high volume, what number of sets are we talking for each boddypart?

Also what would you reccommend for a guy with geneticaly weak abs? i have to get down to pretty low bf in order to fully see them.

what would you suggest (training wise) to do in order to make them thicker?

thanks

i'm doing about 16 - 20 sets per body part, and i'm getting real decent gains from it...considering i'm 43 and pretty beat up from training for over 25 yrs. this style of training is giving my joints a much needed break, but...i'm actually getting bigger from it.
i like doing old fashioned crunches off the floor and with the rope off a pully. i too need to be very lean in order to my abs.

Vin


When you train, do you use any super setting.....or drop sets?Huh How long will you rest between sets??? Do you feel that the magazines confuse readers by not reporting training routines accurately???

seems like the magazines don't correctly report training routines of the top bodybuilders....when you go out to venice, you see how the champs actually workout......do you agree with me here???

Vin,

 Do you ever get acid reflux??? I recently quit drinking coffee due to the fact that the acid was killing me....to the point where I was unable to keep food down.....I did have an endoscopy done and they found nothing serious but they did tell me to get this under control. Just wondering if you ever suffer from this at all.....or people you know??? I may start using some papaya for easier digestion. Thanks in advance!

i have been talking to john defendis for the last 6 months, and i have adopted his method of high sets and reps. i do around 15 - 20 reps per set and about 16-20 sets per body part. i did try even higher amounts of sets like 25, but i respond better to no more than 20.

i do drop sets, super sets, and even giant sets.

i been training since i'm 16 yrs old, have a shoulder injury and most of my joints need a good warm-up, this style of training works great for me.

i think the mags get it pretty close to what the guys do in the gym.
