    Sounds like the beginning of a rape story.

    • One of the trainers at my gym played at Alabama and was drafted by the Seahawks before he blew out his knee in his second preseason game ever. He went on to become LA SWAT and then a Navy Seal. He's 35 now and training at a local gym.

        If the PTs name was Big John and not the poster's it'd almost be a guarantee for a rape story.

        • I'm still hanging out at around 170. I'm eating a lot, too.

          For example, yesterday for breakfast I had 2 eggs over easy, 2 pieces of french toast with syrup, 4 pieces of bacon, and a bowl of cottage cheese and melon with 8 ounces of skim milk.

          • 7 lbs down for me.

            TJ, start doing sprints in place of long distance cardio if thats your current way.
            When I eat, it is the food that is scared.

              Trying to lose body fat and gain muscle mass. My goal was to be up to 180 by the end of summer so I have 2 months to get up 10 pounds so I figure that the last month, I've been gaining a little muscle mass and losing some body fat so sooner or later with my routine, I'm gonna start adding weight.

              • Rob I'm going to start the 5x5 soon. I went from 144 to 150, in about 3 weeks. Now I have about 8 weeks left to get to 165 or around there.

                So which 5 x5 program do you think is better? The Rip Toe, or this one http://www.eclipsegym.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=57.

                I can't find a link for Rip Toe want to direct me to it.

                • Okay guys, I come for advice.

                  I'm 6', 145 lbs. I'm a distance runner, so it's not that I'm anorexic (even though I do not eat a whole lot, and just drink soda after my runs).

                  Anyway, I'm in the 3rd week of training regimen for college and I run 6 days a week and incorporate cross training (biking mostly). But at this point, the coach is having us do ab work (basic crunches, bicycles, pikes, obliques), pedestals (variations of planks) and now weightlifting.

                  The weightlifting program isn't defined. He just said do things that work biceps, triceps, shoulders, upper back, lower back and chest. I only have 2 10 lb. dumbbells as I have never lifted other than a couple times for baseball and that wasn't serious.

                  BTW, he said low weight/high rep if that helps.

                  Any ideas?
                  Is that a rash?

                    P90X would be perfect for what you have and what your looking for or the guidelines your coach gave you.

                      I was thinking of that as a couple of guys on my HS team have the p90X thing. Are there any other basic works I can do before I get that? I'd assume curls? I remember one thing we did at a baseball camp called "Yuengling Pours" and it was that you held the dumbbell completely in front of you and slowly twist it so it would be like simulating pouring a drink. I guess that'd work too?

                      Sorry, I'm a complete newb when it comes to actual lifting. I would assume I'd have to start eating really healthy too, do a complete overhaul.

                        Why do you drink pop? Especially if you're trying to gain some weight. Eating healthy is just as important for those who are trying to gain weight compared to those trying to lose weight.

                        they get smoked.

                            I know. I don't use that other term for it. It annoys the heck out of me.

                              Ugh, it's more of an addiction to it. I have had days where I drop like 5-6 cans of Cherry Coke Zero or Diet Lime Coke (or any other soda for that matter) and this has been going on since like 7th/8th Grade. At track meets, I'll usually buy 2-3 cans of Pepsi (no clue why the hell they offer it) and I usually lose all my hunger from it. I'm trying to curb it but it never works, which is obviously my fault.

                              Not really trying to put on weight, but I guess I would end up adding a few lbs. in the process.

                                Holy crap that's a lot of pop. That is not good for you. You're going to get osteoporosis or something.
