i absolutely detested it at first but i just kept at it. to this day i can only eat it if i wash every spoonful down with water - i dont even like adding fruit. the brand matters a lot; cheap stuff has horrid consistency but daisy brand is pretty smooth even at 2%. just keep shoveling it down, one day you will wake up and realize you can get 80g of protein with zero preparation. its a daily staple and i would be screwed without it

Style forums how should I increase it? I bench fairly narrow and tuck my elbows. Probably gonna bench 2 times a week doing doubles at like 90% my max as well as fuck loads of tricep work and upper back work.
do one "lower" bench day (off the chest) and one "upper" bench day (sticking point and lockout). my lower day = paused bench 2x5, paused db bench 2x10 + assistance. my upper day = pin press below sticking point 2x5, banded db bench 2x10 + assistance.
i would advise dropping the weight and working with wider grips - each bench pressing movement i use (bench, pin press, floor press, etc) i only use index on the rings, mid palms on the rings, or pinky on the rings. IME it may be easier to bench with a closer grip now but you will be better served by taking your grip out wider in the long run. especially if you want aesthetics of the gods, take an index-on-the-rings grip and watch your chesticles puff up. it sucks huge nuts at first, stick with it though
