Sorry, but looking at your photos, and your spouting off, it is apparent that you don't not walk the talk. Before you start spouting nonsense you should at least be representative of what you preach. You photos look like a 45 year old desk jockey who spend too many late hours on the computer and not enough time practicing what he preaches. Sorry, man, but I think you are nothing but a salmon swimming up stream. There are as many trains of thought against as there are for. The sooner you realize that, the better off you will be. If you were so correct then the findings would be on the front pages of every newspaper in the nation. Additionally, you won't look so silly here. Dissing vinegar and advising others that you can help get them suspect supplements doesn't do you any good either. While the jury is still out on vinegar, it is the same with the stuff you are espousing as well. Let it rest before you dig a hole that you will not be able to extract yourself from.

I could say alot of things but i'll follow churchill on this -
"Never argue with an idiot someone watching might not be able to tell the difference."


Sounds like you are talking to yourself in the mirror that you have to shoot your pictures in. It's pretty obvious there that you can't tell the difference. :roll:

Well I don't want to sound like i'm an egoist or a show off but if you want, i'll show you in person it can be done.

I'll do a 120kg deadlift infront of you, you can verify the weights - all without a belt.

I have nothing to hide and sure as hell can back up what i claim.
So what say you? :cool:

I have an opinion and i'm not afraid to disagree nor mince my words to be politically correct just because of someone's age, older only means aged doesn't always qualify to be wiser.
I'm always ready to stand corrected if there is enough evidence to suggest other wise.

Only adadude has presented a legit case in his own experience for the debate and discussion. Have you only have snide remarks in your limited defense?

If you are better than me then show me, i'm all ears to hear your training programming and nutritional regime and learn too. :D

Oh the folly of youth. Sure you can, nobody said you can't did they. We are just saying that by doing so you are stupid. And you shouldn't be allowed to advise other as long as you espouse unsafe at any speed. You can ride a motorcycle without a helmet for 20 years as well and never have a problem, however, it only take one time to finish you life. Same with what you are trying to tell people. Forgo safety for ego. What one CAN do and what one SHOULD do are often very different. Another thing, I don't have to espouse a different methodology to know that yours is wrong. But yes, you are an egoist and a show off, but unfortunately you aren't impressing anybody. How many gymrats do you see on this thread? I don't see any. That should tell you something.

I almost finished 20 minutes of writing and then decided there isn't much point!

Although I may come down to the gym, when i get the all clear, then you can show me how it's done :) won't be for a little while yet though. By the way how tall are you?

I do this for a living, full time.
My income is based upon sessions that my client take up.

Think about it, why would i want to implicate my client's safety if i deem the risk-benefit ratio is higher?

An injured client is income lost, why would i be so stupid to that?

So lets sum up this discussion about the belts -

1. I have given you direction to look for information - research and books to look into which is validated by science yet you ignored it.
2. Offered you to show you how its being done in person but now trying to avoid the reality that it can be done.
3. You obviously have no clue what you're trying to say but put up straw man arguments and vindicated snide remarks which obviously is beating around the bush and not answering the question.
4. Claim to know more than me with "experience" but not work in the field; A Criminal lawyer trying to tell a Neuro-surgeon he's perspective is wrong in his clinical work.
5. Have nothing to back up to prove that my point is wrong yet say everything i'm doing is not right when pictures/videos etc is readily available.

But its okay, like any bitter old man who's area of "expertise" and position of authority on a subject has been challenged, i know its hard to let go and allow someone who knows more than you and is younger show you a thing or two. 8-)

I shall not waste time arguing over nothing until you can prove your point with someone you have trained and showed results and can give better results than me.

As i said, i'm always willing to learn - prove it to me first and earn your respect. =)

Till then touche! but seriously wrong context. :P

I love his spirit.
I don't see a tinge of regret in his eyes when he spoke infront of the camera.
In fact he's loving himself more and pushing himself harder than the average folk on the street.

Nikhil Rao, by his own description, is "strong for an Indian (dot not feather). In other words, not very. Some day he hopes to be a mediocre powerlifter/strongman."

We support Nik's quest, but in the meantime he'll be doing his medical residency in psychiatry and ultimately plans to research how exercise and nutrition affect mental health.

As a member of the medical profession and an avid weight trainer, Nik is forced to deal with the "idiocy and ignorance of medical professionals" at a variety of levels when it comes to weight training and muscular individuals. He explains it this way:

"While most of your readers understand how little doctors know, there are a lot of things that their doctors tell them that are simply wrong. These could even be detrimental to our health in some ways."

This is his first article for TMUSCLE.

LOL, ignore this fatboy trainer wannabee, he's the biggest joke in most of the forums. Check out his log, he failed to meet his 10% bodyfat challenge, then praises himself and then gets slammed by the other members. His nick is Weib.

http://forums.carnasaur.com/viewtopic.p ... &start=900

He trains with us in 300 but has the worst KB form ever. He's one of the most unfit fatass around but he still have the nerve to call himself an athelete HAHAHAHAHA! An athelete who failed IPPT bec he cant pass his 2.4 LOL LOL LOL !!!

Have a look at his excellent form. Dont be deceived by the date. His current form is still as bad LOL. Do not get conned by this conman. Please be wary of run of the mill trainers , especially this fat bloke!! LOL

Well, BB, it looks like this "bitter old man" has a very similar opinion as all of your training peers at your gym going by the kindly linked log by the above poster. I just spend about half an hour reading your feeble attempt to fend off the truth from those who know you best. Seems most who 'trained' with you gave better results. All you seemed to do was the same stuff that you pull here. Excuses and more cutting and pasting links that prove nothing.

Oh, and the comment about clients mattering and money. If you don't look the part you cant sell the goods. First rule of marketing. Wait till ksl has a read of your log........

Seems like they all have told you much the same as us "old" men have....

Good luck. You're gonna need it.

What to say! He's even admitted he's a lazy bugger on the thread. :o :shock: :???: It's all in the mind son, although I would never expect you to lift 80kg, if you haven't been training for it.

I'm at square one, having not trained for a year, and weigh 87kg, if your looking for an older coach, i can maybe fit you in :wink: when i start next week. I'd like to shed 12kg and it's a tough call to get under 10% fat, without popping pills, those that have high conversion of burning have it easy don't you think.

Although strength and lifting is something else. I discovered some interesting findings about weight and food allergy, that shuts down the metabolism, still reading about it.

Becuase when i was 98kg I reduced at 1kg a week, down to 83kg and stalled, I would have liked to have continued to 75kg or less. but in over a year with no training at all, I have only taken 4kg on, and that is mostly water.

So there is a chance, without running to get down to 75kg using GL although I have to stick to a count of 40 on the Glycemic loading, I tried for a day and caved in, when i realised I cannot drink vinegar only water.

I'm quite addicted to my vinegar, but from Monday its water only and a GL of 40 a day, with a brisk walk for 30 minutes.

Why? Are you now going to use food allergies as just another excuse as to why you keep failing? Allergies are what makes you lazy? Give it a rest..... :roll:
