Lapierre bulks up to 212lbs!!

seems he's got a great attitude for the upcoming season. anyone else anxious to see a kost-laps-BGL 4th line?

«J'ai fait passer mon poids de 196 à 212 livres, a indiqué Lapierre, en bombant le torse. Ça va m'aider pour travailler dans les coins de patinoire.»

my favorite part of the interview, lol:

«Comme vous le savez, j'ai une grande gueule sur la glace et, avec la venue de Georges, je n'arrêterai plus de parler!», a dit Lapierre en riant.

That's a pretty big jump in weight for one off-season. I hope he didn't bulk up too much that it effects his skating and puck handling.

That's good news. Hopefully the added weight doesn't impact his skating ability.

It would seem like a great fit to have Lapierre and Laraque on the same line. Clearly Lapierre would benefit from having the "backup" when he gets under the other teams skin...he better make friends with Georges though if he expects the big guy to have his back.

well i think the extra size will help him out alot . I mean the guys is fast as lighting and if he does lose some speed he is a guy who could afford to lose some .

I heard

Big George Laraque say he is over 260 lbs now

lol! I swear, I was just thinking to myself that WTK is gonna notice that...

Also, it's not really that hard to bulk up 15lbs in a few months...I suspect Lapierre is alot like me, we have skinny body types and when you work out and stick with it, it's really easy to jump up in weight, keeping it up though is extra hard work.

Good for Lapierre, I always thought he looked puny in that jersey...he did need more upper body strength for the type of game he likes to play. I know he's boys with Latendresse so this might be an indication that they both took they're training/conditionning serious over the summer

Eat six times a day, make sure its a lot of protein (egg salad sandwiches, tuna, chicken, etc.) and work out 45 minutes to an hour. Take whey supplements if need be. Do it with a good cardio program for when you are not doing your strength training, or mix it with your strength training. Do your best not to lose your diet. Never eat after 7PM.

Do that for a few weeks, yeah you'll bulk up.

I didn't say he was great before, lol. But since he never really passes the puck, I guess you could call it puck handling.

Very true, but I've seen a lot of guys put on weight (muscle) and lose some flexibility. With Lapiere not being an offensive type player, maybe the added weight may help more than hinder him.

Are you kidding....over 260 now?

I think the lines will be:

Plekanec between Kovalev and A. Kostitsyn
Koivu between Higgins and Tanguay
Lapierre between Latendresse and S. Kostitsyn
Chipchura between Laraque and Kostopoulos/Begin

This can of course change if we acquire Sundin or another center. Personally I think both Chips and Laps are 4th centers and should be competing for one spot - OR Laps moved to the wing to play on a 3rd or 4th line.

How about;

Kost - Plek - Kovy
Tangs - Koivu - Lats
Higgins - Chips - Kost Jr
TKO - Lappy - BGL

I think that 2nd line needs to be one that can score AND play good defense against the opponent's top line. Latendresse is a defensive liability as he can't skate and always loses his man. I don't think he can play on the top two lines at even strength. I also don't think Chips is suited to center an offensive line - he's also slow and more defensive minded - I think having him center a line with Sergei and Higgins would hinder than line. I like your 1st and 4th lines though.

I never heard not eating after 7 PM, but that's hard for me since I go to the gym at 7 PM and get home around 9 o'clock afterwards 'cause I go to the gym with buddies and hang out a bit after my routine. When I'm done my workout I take whey protein shake and usually I'll come home and refuel with something to eat.

If Lapierre could learn how to fight, he could be like a Sean Avery Light. Granted, he'd also have to learn how to shoot a puck and pass it once in a while.

First off, let me warn you, you will hear a thousand different ways from a thousand different people about how to bulk up.

However, from what I know about diets and friends that are personal trainers, the easiest fact about training is that if you train early in the day, instead of at night, you get the entire day to also burn off energy. Therefore, instead of you sleeping on your workout, you're using it through the day. It burns more calories, and allows your food to get into your system and not turn into fat. You also get that little extra bit of workout just through life.

I used to work out late as well, and the most bulk I'd gain is fat muscle (you know, where when you wear a shirt you look like a chubby kid, but you swear at the gym you looked ripped...) but when I moved my workouts to the early morning, plus played hockey later in the day? It was like getting two huge workouts a day without feeling it in the morning. You see results.

I just need to get back into it...

I am so looking forward to seeing him play for the Habs. I know we also added Tanguay, who I think is a great addition. But the player I'm looking forward to seeing the most is Laraque.
