Not saying I hate it but definitely catching some Foy vibes in those latest insta clips. Plus are the outfits approaching Baca-level codifiers or am is that Dill in an undercut?

I read somewhere that he got clean off pills and gained weight as a result of sober living. Not sure if itís true, but if it is, I back it 100%, really hope homie is healthy and happy. Iím around 3 months sober from booze and coke and have gained like 15 pounds, so could be true.

Waylon Bone has been posting a lot of him on his stories recently, so I think there is an Out There coming soon. Maybe he speaks about it in that? Could be a good cautionary tale.

Could not agree more. People act like foy is a miracle (as if bam never existed) because he isn't a malnourished alcoholic like everyone else. It's especially absurd when you can squat 400lbs but some kid at the skatepark is astonished you can boost frontside airs because youre "so heavy". God forbid a man have some connective tissue between his bones

Gravity does exist and will use your weight against you . Itís obviously more complex than that but Iíd say thereís an ideal BMI range that can attribute to you skating at your optimum level, no?

I am a chonk.   

But people act like wenning, Foy, AA are fatsos when theyíre just broad instead of wiry.   Donít think it has anything to do with BMI really, just a body shape that isnít conducive to fitting in Krew jeans

I get why anyone would think that, but if you think about judo players, olympic weightlifters, and ufc fighters it clearly has more to do with body composition than BMI.

Being overweight without sufficient muscle to stabilize and protect your joints can do harm to those joints, but just as equally, being underweight and relying solely on the joint tissue to negate all the trauma will destroy your joints.

All that said, being 20lbs heavier than when I was slightly underweight in college, I can ollie twice as high. I have far more power in my legs, core, and back than I did when I was just skin and bone.

Could be meds if it is a real sudden increase in chonk. I work with a dude who put on 45 pounds in 5 weeks from some new antidepressant and another dude had bulimia for like a year from his meds making him chonky. Or could just be that USA lifestyle where about 80% of people are overweight. Either way those pants are ridiculous.

You gain weight from alcohol / coke withdrawal? Is it cause you have a bigger appetite after quitting?
Most of my friends that binge drink and do the sniff look like bloated corpses.

I did it all day every day. Usually 5 out of 7 days in a week. When I was on it absolutely no appetite so I ate nothing.

Im 6'4 at 290 pounds last year, real chonky boy coming back from injury. Spent the last year skating 3x a week eating well, stretching. My pants are falling off my body and im 2 shirt sizes smaller currently skating better then i did in my 20s (32 now)

I go to weigh myself and im 295 i dont understand it but i can almost bigflip now so theres that.

Weight is weird I got the opposite effect the numbers change but my body doesn't.
 I'm also a big guy 6'6 and years ago in my best shape i was probably 210-225 ranging from skinny healthy to proper healthy. I wore 2 or 3xl shirts and 36 pants. Then I got up to about maybe 280 fattest of my life still wore 2xl shirt and 36 pants. Now I'm about 220-230 but feel ten times worse than I did at my fattest and still wear 2 or 3xl shirts and 36 pants.

I'm 100kg and I skate a lot if not exactly gracefully. But I don't make a living posting documentation of it online. The public sphere is exactly that: public. And some innocent trashtalk gossip sure ain't below me.

On a different note shoutout to everybody on here who's gotten clean and stayed that way. Deep respect.

Again, depends on how you do it.

7 years ago I had 'dad bod', drank myself to sleep every night & ate garbage.

After I quit, i lost 30-40 pounds w/in a few months just off the water weight & not eating greasy shit constantly.... that & having the motivation to do more than skate to the liquor store n back, only.

Depends on the habits the the addict & which substance you're abusing.

Yup same here. Would eat something small during the day then start drinking in the afternoon and once that happens you need blow. Cycle repeats. I would still probably consume enough calories to function but itís fucked when most of it comes from 20+ shots of Jameson and whatever beer is laying around

Gaining weight when coming off pills makes sense. Got sober a few times (alcohol) and body was eating like fucking mad to make up for the lack of dopamine intake. I assume itís the same thing.

True words about AA though, was on the same plane as the man and heís a big body for sure. Less fat, and more of just body type. Heís huge, make no mistake. Built like a linebacker.


Good on Donovan for kicking the habit, if thatís the case.

I used to do at least a gram of super good coke and drink between 6 to 15 beers every day, and it literally turned my digestive system into rot. When your bodyís healing and you eat three meals a day like a normal person, youíre starving system holds on to extra. For the first year eat whatever the fuck you want and getting into shape will come naturally afterwards.

I suppose you also regain a lot of muscle when you get sober, this adds up some visual weight but the only effect on skating will usually be good.

How many of these dudes do you see skating rails like foy though? Most guys skating big rails are thin as paper, probably helps when you're being tossed like a bag of potatoes and getting sacked all the time.
