nice to know.

i was wondering your body composition (if thats even the right usage), so at that height id imagine your fairly lean.

Ask away!
Where on the east coast?

Best lifts?

Which PL and/or strongman association(s) would you recommend? Avoid? Why?

How tall is your GF?!?!

New England area!

Best lift has always been my bench press, 500lb for 2.5 reps at best.

I suggest the N.A.S., real solid and supportive group of promoters and participants!

GF is 5'4" on a good day!

That's really lean for a guy your size!

New England area!

Are you getting hammered by snow like I am on Long Island?

Holy Fack! If I deadlift or squat that once, I'll retire!

I suggest the N.A.S., real solid and supportive group of promoters and participants!

I'll check them out.

GF is 5'4" on a good day!

Well, how easy for you!

No in regards to the snow front amigo, they thought we were going to get hammered, but we didn't. Could be the wind pushing it all around, maybe we got more than it seems but I know we didn't get the 10" they expected!

That's good. I'm out to shovel again in a few...you'd think I never did yesterday!

Iambigmike66 is off to a bad start
Default From one big man to another...

I am of the larger frame or build as some would call it...I am 6'6" 275 with a 20% body fat. Lets just say I got a little to work with. I am a power lifter and a runner (I know those dont mix but I run marathons for fun, and in decent times too!) but I need to trim down. My knees are taking a beating!

This is my first time taking Animal Cuts and I am mixing it with Gaspari Superpump 250 & SizeOn along with general BCAA's, aminos and some raw creatine. I am looking to get down to a solid 245-250 but keep my strength. I lift 5-6 times a week (varying heavy, light, kettlebells, etc) and I run 5 days a week (equalling 15-20 miles).

The biggest draw back and my biggest issue is diet. I need the cals and carbs to keep this big body going throughout the day.

Any ideas on diets that wont negate the purpose of taking Animal cuts and help me shed weight at the same time?

Yeah monitor the carbohydrate intake based on the Glycemic Index! Avoid refined and simple sugars and white starches and opt for slow burning complex carbohydrates swuch as:

Sweet Potatos
Brown Rice
Yams
Oatmeal
Grits

Be sure to eat deep greens such as:

Broccoli
Spinach Leaves
Asparagus

Avoid juices and soft drinks and opt for:

Milk (whole is NOT your enemy, just in moderation)
Water
Green Tea
No sugar added Iced Tea w/ lemon slice(s).

Balance the meals to have enough of everything you need throughout the day with meals such as:

Breakfast:
8 Egg Whites w/ 5 yolks
1.5 cups oatmeal
2tpsn. brown sugar

Lunch (sandwiches)
4 slices Whole Grain Wheat Bread,
10oz sliced turkey breast, lean cut,
Mustard
Spinach Leaves
Tomato

Dinner
10oz Chicken Breast,
1 large Sweet Potato
3 cups Brussel Sprouts

Throw in a whey shake such as MRI ProNOS or ON's Whey mixed with whole milk in between each meal, eating every 2.5 hours.

Cook in Olive Oil when you can to get a little more fat intake each meal opportunity.

Stay very hydrated and drink at least 1-1.5 gallons H20 daily based on your body weight.

Perform cardio each morning on an almost empty stomach (I always suggest throwing down a cup of oatmeal with some brown sugar for a quick pick me up while the body feeds on fat stores as its primary source of fuel for the session), then weight train later in the day, on a 4-5 day a week split.

Good luck man!
