its called the offseason man! ha ha. Sure that is the defn of a BB, but I am training with weights to be big AND strong. Since I am probably never gonna compete on any type of high BB level I don't think I have to restrict myself to just being a "BB". I want to be as big and strong as possible, I don't want to be big and not strong. It is my opinion that too many people are foucusing on just developing the muscles without focusing on strength. Whatever happened to the old school attitude of going in there and moving around heavy weight with big movements. Instead everyone wwants to hit the pec deck and tri pressdown to be nice and fit! Fuck that. What about being a highly conditioned athlete which comes from being strong and having endurance. I think that looking like you are strong like some BB do ithout having the hardore strength is false advertising.
In fact the biggest goal that I have for myself when it is all said and done is to deep squat between 700-800 lbs. That is more important to me than a goal weight to reach, any low BF I get to or anything like that. see what I am saying? You can be both. I am a weight trainer i guess, both a strength athlete and a BB b/c I train for both and both are important. It is the strength conditioning that makes you an impressive athlete IMO. It is also much more useful than looking the part alone. You gotta have the whole package. I guess I am just old school like that though, I keep it hardcore my man! believe that
