Maintaining

Hey guys, my goal is to reach 100kg's and have a low bf% (don't we all!). Now i've just started a new routine (see journal for more info) and it's an absolute killer! This will get me to my goal as fast as possible IMO.

However, would i need to do this sort of training until i decide to let my body be (60 years old etc.. unless i'm serge nubret of course!). Would i simply do the same routine and just never increase the weight to maintain my body?

At the moment i'm not interested in being 'freaky' big. Just want to know how to maintain the same bodyweight whilst keeping the muscle.

Cheers guys

Dobos.

    - remember calories to 'feed muscle' so to speak
    - maintain strengtgh gains, but 'keep pushing it'

    finally, i feel that lifestyler dictates your physique.
    if you dont put the hours or nutrition in, on later life, well your having a bubble mate

    tbh mate I would bet my house that you will never get to 100kg's with low bf %. Even with lots and lots and lots of steroids.

    Imagine the eating thats needed to maintain that kind of weight for any n.o of years going into you 40's or 50's. Cannot be done in imo.

    Though you could always do what my dad did and maintain a 100kg physique with a strict diet of guiness and curries...

    the nutritional make-up of that, is bo1locks
    so therefore i very much doubt that your dad maintained a 100kg physique (and were talking physique on a muscle forum)
    on guiness and curries

    So it's impossible for me to be 100kg and ripped?

    100kg is only about 220lbs isn't it. That's your average MMA heavyweight fighter. Arlovski looks pretty good and he's around that weight.

    Well Arlovski has genetics and height- 6ft 3. He was a similar weight to what he is now when he was 20/ 21.

    Its not impossible. But, you would have to donate your life to BB and go the steroid route, no question. Even then it would take at least 10 years prob.

    Pick up 1 kg of steak and think that you have to put 26 times that on your frame to get to 100kg.

    If I were you I wouldn't give yourself such a difficult goal to obtain as you will inevitably get fed up as you may feel your not reaching your goal.

    Give yourself a more realistic shorter term goal, once you have reached it give yourself another one, etc. You may become 100kg but you shouldn't put that down as you 1st and only goal.

    How tall are you?

    I am 6ft and am around 90kg and have been 'maintaining' that for years, although with a fairly high bf%.

    Before I started training I was 76kg.

    If I sorted my diet would I be able to gain another 10kg?

    Who knows....

    [Joe] what do you call "a fairly highbf%" if you don't mind me asking,
    I'm 42, 5'9" 207lbs 21%bf (aiming for 190lbs and 17%bf ) to start with,
    I'm curious as to what others class as fairly high bf%.

    cheers,

    I meant fairly high for me as I was rather skinny before the gym/pub.
    In this case I mean high teens but below 20%, I'm not sure what it is exactly.

    oh ok, I am aiming for 17%, then I will re evaluate and drop some more if I think I still don't look right, but it is possible I would be happy at 17%BF, who knows

    At 59 @ 105klo's
    I maintain low/bf but doin the same routine and a good healthy diet; I've done so over the last 30yrs but at slightly low poundages

    My competative weight was 17st 4lbs with 7%bf

    And Ive been 105 klo[16st 7lbs] for a long time now; the only time I went down to 15st 7lbs was when I did alot of cycling [racing against the clock] and was ultra ripped

    Considering your going to try and do this natural and from reading through your journel i would say its highly unlikely.

    Maintaining is usually my weak point.
    I'm either going up or down in general.

    I think its quite an individual thing, as some friends don't seem to have much difficulty maintaining, however their progess comes far slower.

    I don't think anyone is suggesting that mate, but relative to the original poster, he started at 67, now hes 75k, to get to 100k, he would need to add another 25k (or 33% extra of his currenty body weight). 25K of muscle is quite impressive for a person using gear, not to mention a natural.
