Really? The Claim: Eat Six Small Meals A Day Instead Of Three Big Ones   The report, while informative and interesting, focuses on metabolism and weight management.  We'd be curious to see the results of similar studies where the focus is on performance.  Would athletes following the same strength and conditioning program, consuming the same food and amount, perform better while eating three times a day or six?  Or, would there be no difference?

We aren't surprised by the report….sometimes we eat six times a day and sometimes we eat three times a day.  Yesterday we only ate twice.   It all depends on what the day brings.


He Bends But He Doesn't Break  The article, about Lamar Gant, is from 1984, but we re-posted because we were discussing not allowing the lack of bodyweight to set mental limitations for strength development.

  –"In the 132-pound class, in which he has won three of his nine world titles, Gant's world record is 654 pounds, seven pounds shy of five times his weight, but several times in practice he has lifted 661 pounds when his weight was 132 pounds or less. He has also done such stupendous training feats as 615 pounds for five repetitions and 500 for 20 reps."–

By the way, Gant squatted 595 lbs. and benched 352.5 lbs. at 132lbs. bodyweight as well!

 Here's another "phenom"…Dr. Judd Biasiotto!  So much for using light bodyweight as an excuse!
