On the DB bench press, I can't lower the DBs below parallel for my upper arms, it hurts too much. Plus, my forearm hurts when I do weighted pullups and I was making fantastic progress too.. I've got an appointment with a specialist in a week. Hope a) I don't have to take an extended break from the gym or b) they don't...

Vegetarian vs. meat arguments.... Sticking to the OP's question, I really don't like snacking. It is a surefire way to lose track of your daily intake. But anyway, the kinds of things that I would consider are: nuts (almonds, walnuts, etc. in moderation - these are extremely calorie-dense), rice cakes (delicious, low in calories), spoon of peanut butter of almond butter, a fruit, etc.
Quaker Old Fashioned Oats. 3/4 cup in water, nuke for 1 min, add a spoon of splenda or a few raisins or mash up half a banana and mix in.
I would keep the ab work. There's no doubt that squats and DLs will give you core strength but there's a lot to be said for focused core work. It's not just crunches, it incorporates things like hanging leg raises, Russian twists, ab rollouts, etc. which target the entire core vs. just abs. I think core work is often neglected to the detriment of functional fitness.

Quote: Originally Posted by shibbel Never in my life have I taken BCAAs in powder form, solo, with no flavoring, and mix ins- I have to tell you, this is the most god awful shit ever. I've had crap that didn't blend with water, tasted bad going down, and things that have left a very nasty aftertaste- but this is the first time I've had to take something that occupies all three categories. I'm looking into BCAAs as well - never taken them...
Bottom line reason is to survive the zombie invasion. I want to be able to outrun, outclimb and outswim the zombie hordes, and in the unlikely event that I can cornered by one, I want to be able to fucking kick his ass. http://www.zombiefitness.com

Protein is kept high on all days (I'm at 1.5 per pound of lean body mass) low carb on off days, low fat on workout days. 4. The majority of calories are consumed post workout on those days, while during...
