That and he had some beastly Russian genetics.
Likely ~10% BF if that's what Dave is basing the photo above.
You'd probably be better off trying to get 220-230 at 15%. Then try to cut down to 10-12% then maybe rebulk back up depending.
Wait, Dima was only 200lbs? You gotta
be kidding me. I swear I heard someone say 240lbs before, and he certainly looked it. But yeah, as I mentioned in my last post, guys like him are rare. However, he was only 200lbs, then that does give me more hope that at 220-230lbs, I could be a solid base for a potential triple illusion. Something like me/Sven/you would be a possibility, no? Of course, that's assuming you trust me enough.
Darryl, honey is good stuff, but I never liked schwigging it out of the bottle. Of course, shooting olive oil is even worse (especially when it's warm room temperature stuff) so I think I'll give that a consideration. Just putting some on my meat (chicken + honey = awesome) could probably give a 200-400 good extra calories of nutritionally solid stuff.
Ok, so I'll concede that the numbers I've stated before are probably unreasonable, because my mental perception of what those numbers meant was inaccurate. But that being said, I'm probably still going to shoot for solid 230lbs (as in a 230lbs that isn't me being 220lbs plus 10lbs of food in my stomach that'll be gone by the following afternoon), then start doing some cardio and dieting more carefully to see where that takes me before thinking of making and further changes.
