As I'm reading page 7 of Infinite Intensity
, I'm starting to feel overwhelmed about what path to take. Ross discusses sarcoplasmic and myofibrillar hypertrophy and how the book isn't a bodybuilding course. I have used this book to help me with strength gains. My achievements thus far include one arm push up and pull up, and 300lb deadlift and squat; however, at 5'9 and hovering at max 145lbs, I do desire to be bigger. To portray the image of a man that others don't want to pick on is what I want to achieve. When I used to be smaller, I would get picked on and bullied. Since getting bigger I haven't had anyone try. I guess size really plays a certain role. I'm not a fighter and don't want to fight. I have the deepest respect for people who do though, coming from a family of fighters myself. Right now I have muscle but for some reason still look so skinny. I was wondering if there is something that I'm doing wrong.
I'm starting to think that one can't be strong, big, fast at the same time, as if the human body doesn't like that combination, that I have to pick one over the other. But I don't think that it's my family's genetics because we have tiny men and giant men in the family. So the ultimate question: I want to be big, strong, and fast. Is this against the law of physiology?
