told me what?

I am not sure I would call my diet to be "on the bulk" but def going to up the protein and maintain the high fats and increase the carbs a bit. I am not doing very much CV at the moment either.

that you should give powerlifting a go :D Good to hear it from Pat though - did you discuss about the squat form at all or any that kind of things?

she was telling me more how in competition you need to be able to lift with minimal warm-up and with long waits between lifts - that this is quite difficlt in itself. She said with a BW of about 65k i need to work towards DL150, squat 100 and bench 60k - thats alot more than I can do now - but had given me some goals to work towards. I dont know what a realistic time-frame for that is though. The biggest problem is that living where I do, getting anywhere is really time-consuming and difficult especially as I dont have a car...

I wish all my CV events were over so that I could concentrate on weights as I am really motivated for them at the mo and not at all for CV!

totally, and thats why it is worth it to train all three once in a while to get an idea.

well, thats a 310kg total, so thats HUGE total and i suspect she meant equipped lifts. So with squat suit and bench shirt - they can add quite a bit, depending on where you are strongest.

if you look at this:
http://jamesj74.users.btopenworld.com/b ... totals.htm
and scroll down to the unequipped totals the qualifying total for 67.5kg women is 225kg, and that is a qualifying total for national comps, not local comps. I suspect you are not too far from that already?

Anyways, should not hype this up with all the CV based challenges you have coming up now - lets return to this discussion after your KIMM event :D

bulkers, do you get tired of eating loads? I have been FULL/STUFFED/SATURATED for almost two weeks now in row - often i feel like i am one step away from vomiting, when that feeling goes away i feel a bit peckish and want a nibble :D

Anyways, just wanted to moan a bit... People say cutting is hard, well, so i bulking!

well i dont bulk as such but i know what you mean by forcing yourself to eat when the last thing you want is to eat...

if i have been over-training, am very tired, have been eating lots or am too hot i dont like to eat but force myself too out of necessity or politeness but i often feel really horrible later.

Pretty much feel full most of the time, and sometimes like i'm going to retch when getting my breakfast down. Ate a stack on saturday, like much more than usual and felt terrible afterwards. Weighed in at 88.9 at night which is heaviest ever, but didn't sleep well i was so stuffed, and the next morning felt awful. Considered having a fast day, but just went pretty light instead.

Bulking can be tiresome at times. Fortunately I am abled to eat at work and do so all day long. :D

JP, I have been following your food journal, much healthier than mine. It has to be even harder to get in all those calories on whole foods. Most days I eat at least a couple of Builder Bars, a couple of bagels with peanut butter and two fast food burritos. That's about 2500 calories right there, plus breakfast and dinner and evening snacks.

I don't know what happened to my digestive system when I was sick in July, but things have been in good order since. I seem to have gotten over my soy allergy and constant indigestion. Seems I can eat most anything in any quantity without any problems. :?

i wish i has some builder bars man! I'd love to eat them. In fact i have ONE bar left - it is saved for a squat PB day 8)

Weighed 104.5kg today which is 2kg up from 3 weeks ago, so bulking is defo working.

Still 1.5kg to go, so thats a lot of food still to go!

then you better find yourself a US based Builder Bar dealer soon. I have a few now (you know who you are 8)), and I wouldn't survive without their services.

are Builder bars the same as Clif bars? I ordered some Clif bars from the Veganstore to see what they are like seeing as all you guys on here are always raving about them!

no, builders bars are totally different, and they won't ship them outside north america, hence the need for a dealer.

see http://www.clifbar.com/eat/eat.cfm?location=builders
