Well, I've been using this or something close to it for over a year now. During this time, I've gained somewhere in the neighborhood of 70 pounds or so. Can't remember exactly. I love it. So far, it's the best routine for me. I also have a rigorous eating schedule, based mostly on spaghetti and meatballs, milk by the gallon, and pbj's, lol. And, I do use a little chemical enhancement, but not like what some of these guys are doing.
I'm a Westsider, have been since I started powerlifting. I'm just curious to know what other PL'ers have tried. Do you bench with PL form?
I eat probably around 3-4000 calories a day because I do want to be over 200lbs. The problem I ran into was I was overeating, and gained more fat than I wanted. I was eating everything in sight, drinking whole milk, whatever. I've scaled it back, and rotate my carbs a little, just so I don't have a huge gut. Just doesn't seem like productive weight to me.
I eventually want to hit 220, but I don't want to be a lardass 220.
Yep, I do everything with PL form. My mentor has been powerlifting for about 35 years, and he's taught me everything I know. He actually competed against the great Don Rheinhoudt several times, and lost each time, lol.
Right now, I'm trying to become a superheavyweight, so I wouldn't mind being a bit of a lardass, but I actually don't have a whole lot of fat for being about 320. Like 17% bf, or so. Not bad, considering I was the same bf about 45 pounds ago, lol.
