Yes, KG. 
My arms have stretched out and I can low-bar squat now. Not sure which I prefer, but I'll stick to low-bar because my hero Rip advocates it. I've been increasing my lifts every workout. Now that I can low-bar, I can probably be more aggressive with the increases.   Squat: 20x5x2, 25x5, 27.5x5, 30x5x3 Bench press: 20x5x2, 25x5, 30x5x3 Deadlift: 35x5x1, 40x5, 45x5 Do you guys start your DL warm up at 135 pounds?

I like pic 3. Where is it from?
As somebody that loves to cook from scratch, calorie counting is a depressing bitch.
Edit: NM.
    Please explain. In SS Rip states 3500-6000 calories a day, 1g protein per pound of bodyweight as a good starting point. Obviously I don’t know shit, so I’d like to hear (see?) your thoughts. Is it the fat and lack of protein? I’m just under 124 pounds.
