I have no access to treadmills for the time being, unfortunately.

 

Hmm.

 

I get bored really easily, so I make up things to keep myself interested.  Here are some of the other things I've tried as "interval training" in the past couple of years.

14 is a lucky number.

 

1/

Sprint up stairwell of 7-10 floors.

Go down decently quickly.  Every other floor on the way down, 14 squat jumps, or 14 split jumps, or 14 lat pull-ups hanging from the handrail bar (ymmv, my stairwell is configured in such a way as to make this possible).

Substitute stadium steps if you're lucky enough to have access to those.  More and more big stadiums seem to be locked at night these days, the bastards.

 

2/

(with a jump rope)

28 seconds regular jumping

28 seconds double-unders

28 seconds regular jumping with crossovers

14 seconds triple-unders (sweet jesus this is hard)

repeat.

 

3/

Take a jump rope.  Learn to do percussion with your feet and the rope.  Alternate between slower rhythms (= low intensity) and faster rhythms (= high intensity).

Bonus, you will achieve instant hero status if there are any sixth-graders around.

Bonus number two, this is a hell of a lot less boring than any other form of training I can think of.

 

4/

Jog along the street.  Snatch purse from elderly woman.  Sprint.  After 20 seconds, hand purse off to unsuspecting fellow pedestrian.  Run away at 70-80% intensity.  See cops again.  Sprint.

Repeat.

 

Well, at least #1-3 are good.

That's a lot. I'm allergic to peanuts so I could never eat that much or any at all for that matter. My allergy also makes it hard for me to find protein bars that have an adequate amount of protein and a small amount of carbs. I tend to eat them as snacks and when I don't have time for lunch.

 

Try cottage cheese.  I eat a whole 2-lb container of cottage cheese almost every single day, which is a key part of how I get 250+ grams of protein/day strictly from whole foods.  I don't do well with dry foods, so, unfortunately, there's a low ceiling on the amount of lowfat meat I can eat.  When you find something that works, you stick with it.

I also eat about 2-3 lbs of mushrooms a day, cooked into just about every dish I make.  There's only about 16 grams of protein in an entire pound of mushrooms, but that's still a decent contribution.

 

I'd rather eat Uruguayan queso blanco than cottage cheese, but that's 20 hours of plane flights from here.

 

What other high-protein, relatively-low-cal, non-meat foods do people on here eat?
 

Any experience with "liquid protein shots"?  The macros are unbelievable, but they seem sketchy -- last time I read the label on one, I saw protein from scary places like collagen.  Weird.

While we're on the topic of food, does it matter how much of my carbs that come from veggies, berries and fruits vs. rich sources like grains, beans and pasta?

 

On a 3200 kcal day (300g carbs), I eat approx 1.2kg of veggies and the like (80g carbs) and 400g of rich sources (220g carbs). 

I can add that my goal atm is to lean bulk.

If genetics for innate ability at weight lifting exist on a bell curve, it's a useful visualization of who cannot total elite. You can put the line where you want and not everyone will agree where that line should go, but thinking of it this way shoulder temper those who claim "everyone" can total elite.

Wrapped it with a piece of eye round and put a bit of olive oil and pepper on it. Fuark just had nearly 200g of protein at once.
Also the same amount of fat per serving. Enjoy.

Not really unless you read about the paleo diet and care for its ideas

Gonna try working out fasted today--gotta use those expensive BCAA's I bought.

Also, idk if i mentioned these before, but Ostrim Beef/Ostritch Jerkey has amazing macros. It's basically designed for lifters.

You're right.. those that got dealt the genetics shit hand and was born with something like cerebral palsy will probably never total elite.

But I believe anyone that wasn't born with any kind of disability can total elite. It may take some a couple years, it may take some over a decade, but it will happen with the right type of mentality, training, and nutrition.

My wrists are 7". Shoulders, joint to joint are 16" - same as my girlfriend, who is only 5'8".

I'll never understand why people are so anti-whey.

Satiety? Expense?
