G, I usually dont do much rep work above 6's sry I guess I will need to come out and train with you to get stronger in my DB Incline

1 m/s is pretty much the target goal for me for most of the presses, I try to work close to 2 m/s in all pulling/olympic exercises. If you have a tendo unit at any of your gyms they are a really good piece of equipment. During summer training I have a test I do before every workout and measure and see what power production I am at, and that dictates the workout, we also do this in season to avoid over training. Plus it just makes sense, if you can't pull at maximum efficiency why do that workout?

OK fellas, I'm gonna stick my head up finally after reading this thread here and on the other board. I never really lifted before. I was more of a push-up, sit-up kind of guy.

Well I'm trying to come off of a long sedentary period of about seven years. I drank alot of beer and ate alot of food. I was about 180 Lbs, for my height that is damn fat, bordering on obese. So for the past 2 almost 3 months I've been monitering my diet and doing some light upperbody weights. I dropped down to about 145 Lbs.

When is a good time to start bulking up? I heard from some website that you should get down to below 10% body fat before you start consuming more calories to start putting on more lean muscle. I still have some belly fat, should I lose as much of the gut as possible before?

Also, is the whole 1g of protein per pound of lean muscle mass formula effective?

And Zemekone, you are the pull-up king. I am up to three with good form and happy. Sure I can do five but after the third, it gets dodgey quick.

in my opinion winter is the perfect time to bulk up cuz you can wear sweaters, and jackets plus you have all the big eating holidays...

i like 1.5 g of protein per pound, and 2.0 grams per pound of carbs

+1. Burpee pull-ups are even better. Due to all of the running I have been doing I've avoided the gym since the summer. This thread is getting me pumped for my marathon recovery time when I can start hitting the weights again. Although, I get through the O-Course a lot faster with my skinny endurance body then I ever did when I was lifting.

Funny how that works.
