I know you're not spost to feed the troll, but since you don't actually ride anymore, don't you have other forums to troll.

Post from Feb was off. Our scale was inaccruate. My weight was actually in the upper 160s. It was definitely a bummer when we got a new scale and I got a physical and both read higher than our old scale. Also, I started the season with a lower FTP than 340. I didn't test until after that post in Feb, 340 was from my previous test in the fall. I only hit 330 in Feb and was undereating CHO quite a bit so it could've been from that.

I've posted elsewhere, but oddly in the last 3 years I've actually gained just under an inch. I also started getting myofasical release, stretching more, doing yoga, and trying to improve my posture. I obviously didn't grow, but clearly have better posture now.

Anything else you want to dispute? The fact of the matter is I've still managed to drop over 15 lbs in 6ish months, using advice you claimed would never work, and improved every power metric on the way. Factoring in the difference in PM would yield ~8-10w difference between the PT and a crank-based PM, which would be an all-time absolute high. I feel bad that you tell your supposed clients that they need to gain weight to gain power as that's simply not true.

:lol: Just more stuff you seem to make up along the way. Are you that desperate to impress people you have to make up stats?

As for trolling, you called me out, not the other way round. I usually don't respond to the exceptionally large amount of crap you post in WW, and let's face it, it's a titanic amount.

And I have never, ever stated a person needs to put on weight to gain power. More shit you seem to make up.

I look forward to the next update where we find out the scales were wrong and you were actually 196lbs and you're now 142, and power went from 250 to 410. Oh and grown another inch. No wonder you have issues with bike fit, with all that growing. All these improvement might help you get a top ten result, the first in what, 2 years?

Keep up the good work champ. :thumbup:

Its been great, gotta get back to real life.

Nothing is made up. If you want you can call my physician, yoga instructor, fiance, massage therapist etc. Again, I have been under the impression for years that my correct height was 73.5inches, so thinking that for the first time in my life I didn't have kyphosis its conceivable that perhaps I could stand taller. But wait, that would totally get me negative points on here so I might as well lie about the most trivial thing ever. Believe it or not I know a lot of people on this forum in real life so if was that false they'd call me on it.

You think I enjoyed being happy I lost weight to find out that I actually hadn't lost that much yet? It was definitely not something I'd fabricate. I gain and lose nothing by contributing to this or any other thread. You tried calling me on this before and when I actually posted recommendations from contributors to Wattage you had zero response. We're re-living the past here.

And yes, you did say that you prefer your clients to gain muscle and/or weight and power. Every time I've tried to use the search feature to find this post, it says its unavailable.

So what "crap" do I post? We've been through this before and I think the final and best step is to simply add you to the ignore list since you're clearly a wackjob that has some vendetta in some weird way.

Oh, this is the climb I'm lying about for my recent 20min test, which is actually the second interval of a 2x20 with 5 min rest and averaging the two times .95, which is what I've found personally gives me a fairly accurate estimate given that I have a moderately high AWC. The first was 366:

Cool story bro.

The reason you can't find those posts is that I have hacked the WW forum and deleted the posts in case you proved me wrong :roll:

And here's some of my actual quotes:-


viewtopic.php?f=8&t=105601&p=903615#p903615" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Quote:
...Paradoxically, some cyclists don't eat enough to lose weight. They skimp on calories (and consequently nutrients) which means recovery is compromised and they can't train as hard. And because they don't train as hard they don't lose as much weight, so they eat less...

When you're training properly its a case of struggling to get the calories in. Prolonged, consistent training and diet can bring about the loss of muscle without much or any lose in power. But for most of us its not an immediately obtainable goal. Also not overlooking genetics. Some just won't have those ultra-dense fibres. That's is not to say improvement cannot be made but the "pro" look may not be there...


viewtopic.php?f=8&t=98834&start=45" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Quote:
If your power to weight ratio is less than 5 w/kgs then eat more, train harder and stop obsessing about inconsequential matters. Performance will lead to low body fat, not the other way round.

Diet should be done smart.

But here's a question. Are you training harder (quality) and eating "right" and seeing a significant rise in FTP and a reduction in body fat levels?

if not then answer could be to eat more.

I have seen plenty of cyclists get caught in the "losing weight paradox". They try to lose weight so they eat less, they can't train as hard, recover poorly, don't lose much weight, so they eat less, can't train as hard etc...

Then when they've killed their FTP they give up, eat "normal" and weight stacks on.

I prefer the path of train hard, eat well, recover, train harder, eat well etc. There maybe some net weight/fat gain. But I promise you someone with a 350watt FTP will lose weight easier than a 250watt FTP. Additional someone who has done the work to get to 350watts probably would have shed a bit on the way. Performance first and foremost.

If you get to 350watts and have a 20% body fat then yes, a bit of cutting will make you even better. Anything else is poser wankery. Like I said, if yall are worried about BF levels before you've got a decent engine you're all backwards...

Don't know if I actually posted it some time ago.
(metric and imperial so anyone could understand)
187 cm - 6'1
74 kg - 163 lbs
No powerstats. I'm in shape when I can climb the local 23%, multiply times on 53-21.
I'm 20 years old.

Just to add a data point for the slow guys, here's my info:

6'0"
167 lbs
My 20 minute record on a TrainerRoad FTP test (1x20) was 331. I'm not even remotely close to that now, even though I weigh the same - I think my quads migrated north to my waistline and turned into fat.

Amused.

But really, wasn't the claim that he lost weight and (almost?) kept his power before his successful TdF bid?

This thread is like the snickers advert.

I don't know know if this is a good weight or not but I am 5'8 (172cms?) and 63kg/138.6lbs/10st 6oz.
I carry a bit of body (guinness) fat and I weight train...sporadically.

Is there anyway I could gauge my poweroutput without a bike computer? I'd be quite interested in that...
