Bodybuilding and bulking: Quotes from a Natural Champion

Quotes on bodybuilding and bulking from natural bodybuilding champion, Kevin Weiss:

Quote:

To begin with, I think most people that label themselves hardgainers are not. They are:

* A) Not realistic about how long it take to gain quality weight.
* B) Train like pansies.
* C) Not willing to lose their six pack.
Quote:

The longer you have been training the slower the gain. If you have been training and eating properly for more than 5 years we are talking a few pounds a year AT MOST.
Quote:

Also if you think you are going to add pounds of muscle and still keep your abs you are wrong. I guess this brings me to bulking.

Bulking up is a viable protocol but it has to be done properly.

Man, I have plenty of it. You wouldn't believe how many naturals I've spoken with the past 2 months. I'll keep posting quotes as I edit interviews and profiles.

The Ownership Principle says to examine various diets and training plans and accept - or reject - them based on whether they appeal and make sense to you. That includes those recommended by me. Take parts of various plans and create your own plan - own it. That means you take responsibility. If it doesn't work, you have no one to blame but yourself. When you "own" a regimen, you have a stake in the plan - and you're more likely to stick to it. It also has the advantage of being a plan uniquely designed for you, by you.

In short, develop your own health and fitness lifestyle. Own it.

Love the CB quote.

Personal accountability, what a concept!

It reminds me of a scene from the movie, "The Dirty Dozen".

There's a guy half way up a rope to a tower. He ask's for help because he can't make it the rest of the way up. So, Lee Marvin shoots the rope off beneath him. The guy went right up the rope.

Lee Marvin wanted him up the rope, he got him to go up the rope. If your current plan does not work change it.

What's personal responsibility?

So many forum clones want a routine and diet planned out for them. They don't know, or care about basics, and don't give a rat's ass about experimenting.

Of course they want it planned out for them. Then when they don't put forth the effort, and hard work, it's not their fault that they failed. They are entitled to the body of their dreams, and should not have to work for it. YEA RIGHT!

What most naturals need to do is stop concerning themselves with every new flashy training theory that comes along and just devote themselves to simply getting stronger for reps on a few basic exercises for each major body part - even to the point of ignoring practically everything else and allowing no distractions from that goal. And if muscle proportion and balance is a priority (which it really always should be) the solution almost always lies in the selection of the proper free-weight compound exercises, not more "exotic" isolation work.
