013. Randy’s 45 Pound Weight Gain At Age 55 – Part 2
Picking up where we left off on Randy’s 45-pound weight gain, Randy elaborates on a few issues that he feels you should be clear on regarding his large increase in body weight.
Actually, as of mid-August, Randy states that his weight had reached 212.5 pounds, making his total gain 52.5 pounds since last July.
The primary reason, however, for an additional podcast on this subject has to do with a specific exercise that Randy had re-evaluated and incorporated back into his training regimen.
He strongly feels that this movement, done properly, assisted in a better 200+ bodyweight than he had ever carried before.
