  • How healthy are you?

    There are some big boys cruising around on this board and the typical assumption is that the bigger you get the less healthy you are with high blood pressure, poor cardiovascular health and the like (you know the typical gauges of health) so im curious where everyone stands on these things?

    Whats your resting heart rate, BP, or even VO2 max should you happen to know?

    BP 135/85
    HR in rest 82
    Bloodwork mostly ok besides some slightly elevated ALAT levels sometimes.

    Sometimes I do worry a little ( seems it gets worse getting older) about all the juicing I did for about 20 years.

      BP 130/70 to 140/85
      HR can go anywhere from 60 to 70 BPM resting in the am

      Chem Panels are ok every two months with high AST and ALT with low HDL while "on".

      When I do my cardio 4 times a week my air is fine, steps are no problem, tying shoes is a whole nother story...

        Weight is 274 @ ~17%bf

        BP: 137/74
        RHR: 72-78bpm first thin in the AM

        Biggest thing I notice is I now sweat a lot more. I was never the perfectly dry type but with the added mass, I tend to sweat just a little most of the day. No sweat stains but just moist feeling. I also have to wear business casual clothes so that doesn't help any.

          I have put on about 40 lbs over the last year or so and my bp actually dropped by about 20 pts. My cholesterol also went down about 40 pts. So who the hell knows!!

              wt 188 @ 14%bf - 5-8
              bp 110/70 pulse in 60's on waking

              since March went from 185 to 195 end of May, been cutting down since June 1 (trying to get to 10% by end of August). I have a small build (6.5" wrist) and I felt really sluggish with the added bulk. I do sweat more tho also.

                for me i do cardio 3-4 times a week all year and if i dont do at least some i feel like i am going to keel over and die. if im huffing and puffing after climbing a flight of stairs my little lady teases the shit out of me too.

                currently my BP is cruising around 120/80 and my resting heart rate is 60. granted i am currently off and not in my winter fatass shape so im not always this healthy.

                  benz i have a small frame myself (6.5" wrists too) and i really suggest doing some offseason cardio to help your body adjust to its new found size. all you have to do is eat more to offset the calories burned.... and shit i love eating so its all good

                    Thanks nemo, I'll keep that in mind. I'm planning my offseason in Nov, hoping to hit 200lbs.

                      save your cash so you can hit up those buffets come winter!

                      what a lot of people do that really holds them back is bulk for 1-2 months and then diet for 1-2 months and their net muscle gain ends up being very small. what i like to do is eat and train my way up to a higher bodyweight and then try to hold that bodyweight for a while to allow my body to get used to it and then cut down on any unwanted bodyfat i gained. i am no diet master or anything so their might be a better way of going about this.

                      i remember when 200 pounds seemed so far away and then 225 and then 250 and so on. just take it one step at a time and you will get up there
