Ya know, it's funny you said that. I have more "little guys', and women try to fight me than anything. Don't understand it. The judge here told me that if he has someone come before him for resisting arrest, and DWI. If I'm the arresting officer, they're automaticaly guilty of DWI. My size helps with my work, but the best "tool" I have is how you treat people.

[QUOTE=Smokey Bear 393]Thought I would share this photo. It's the most recent one I have. I'm 6' 4", and weigh 300 lbs. I've started using lower weight, and higher reps. My goals is to cut up more.

First, you're looking very good. I want to tell you that from my experience doing higher reps with less weight will not help you effectively cut. It's a big misconception. The best way to cut is to work on your diet and incorperate more cardio (not too much, though.) Studies have shown that 16 minutes of intense cardio can burn more fat than trying to run a marathon. I'll try and provide a link when I find it. I think it's under Max-Ot cardio. It's high intensity training or HIT. For guys like us, we don't want to loose strength and mass for the sake of cutting. Stay on your current program and just tweek your diet. Results won't be fast, but they will be overall better for you.

Thanks for the advice. I agree with you about the diet, which is one of my weak points. I started using lower weights to help my joints as well. I need to start taking glucosamine. I still consider myself to be young at 34, soon to be 35. But, after lifting weights for 11 years, I can feel it. Thought it would be a nice break for my joints. However, 4 weeks into it, and I miss the heavy weights. I'm a notorious tight wad. I'll have to break down, and buy some glucosamine.

tauris, where did you get that info on walking? that is very interesting indeed. if you can provide a link or something that would be great. also, how much walking would you suggest?

Smokey, your a big dude. so what do you bench just kidding big guy. I know you mentioned glucosamine for joints, I use that with condrioten and msm ... i feel your pain with the joint shit. i'm only 23 and arthritis in my neck, and tendinitis (sp?) in my shoulder kick my ass if i'm not using joint supps.

good luck with the cutter, you should start a journal to both motivate you and give us an idea of what your up to.

Walking will be easier on your knees and hips as well. Swimming is a jewel for cutting up, especially if your good at the BUTTERFLY or free-style. Its no-impact, and the water holds you back by a factor of about a 90 times, depending on body size, so you'll maintain muscle, yet burn fat. About 15 -20 minutes every other day will do. You dont have to swim hard, just keep moving.
The only problem I see with swimming is you can't get ultra ripped when doing it, as a sole activity for cardio.

There was a study or article that was mentioned by Charles Poloquin on third world pearl divers that would swim all day long, to the floor of the ocean to retrieve pearls. Even though these pearl divers had single body digit fat they still weren't as cut as they should have been at that level of fat percentage.

Now the theory is that when you are in the water you lose alot of body heat. Your body is very effecient at trying to stay in homeostasis, so to prevent this, the body holds an extra layer of fat. This in turn works as a layer of insulation, as you would have on a house. That extra layer prevents, that you lose to much heat while your in the water.

Don't get me wrong I still think swimming is a great cardio exercise, but I have never seen an extremely ripped swimmer. They are lean and if that's the physique you are striving for then more power to you. But, for the bodybuilders that want every single striation to show, swimming should be used sparingly, as a cardio tool.

We are all different in our goals, as I don't strive to have a swimmers physique. I would much rather be built like Branch Warren, who is around my height. This keeps me striving everyday to get to the gym, eat good, and do my cardio, so I can achieve a physique that I'm happy with.

So, good luck to you all, whatever your goal is!

I agree with Snatchito. In the Marines, I got fap'd out for 9 months to be a swimming instructor upgrading Marines for their swim quals. I got lucky because I was in the grunts. Anyways, I used to swim freestyle 1000 meters every morning (req.) and I can definately attest from experience that it doesn't effectively cut your muscles up at all. For cardiovascular health it is the "crown jewel." The only way I could see that is if you swam 100 meters, then ran a half mile, then flip flop back and forth.

Oh yes Smokey, you are definitely huge. Do you have to buy your own uniforms and equipment or is that supplied to you by the state? Either way, I bet the supply sergeant isn't happy to see you coming.

I got to agree with the others that I would be like all the others when pulled over by you and saying "Yes Sir Officer Sir". But then again, I treat all people who bleed blue that way for pure respect for their job and the brotherhood. It wouldn't matter if their your size or 105 soaking wet. The shield carries its own weight that demands respect.

Good job on staying in shape and keep up the hard work. I get so dissapointed when I see an out-of-shape officer. I think every department(city, county, state) should have a fitness requirement somewhat like the military. You have to pass a test and weight-in to make sure your with-in specs. Some places do that and some don't but being healthy for that particular job just is a must in my opinion.

I am going to join the police academy in few months when my just jumped over the grand canyon status changes to a citizen status. After that I would be one of the few po-pos that vouch for M1T and SD. I am going to be on SD while taking the physical test as it would make it easier for me to run two miles in 14 minutes. I already benches 150% of my body wait, I only need 70% to qualify. Then I have to do 25 bend leg crunches, shit I can do 500
