I used this:
http://doubleyourgains.com/musclebuildingmastermind/The_Leangains_Approach_Final.pdf

And this:
http://www.1percentedge.com/ifcalc/

Both of which advocate a -20/+20. The calculator has a "minimum per day " calories (it put mine at 17--my maintenence is at 25). So I try and avoid dipping under that (not that that's an issue).

Geting krunk pre drinking. Realise I haven't hit my macros. Mix 3 shots of tripple sec with 3 scoops of unflavoured whey. Tastes bad man.

You can look at it that way if you want.

But if you ever want to stop doubting the average human potential or yourself, I can help you stop being a little girl smile.gif

Oh, you've even found the real protocol. Nice stuff. Haven't read that before.

It seems you have it sorted out then. You've got better knowledge than me at least.

 

Used the IF calculator to estimate my BF%. Seems like I'm between 11-12, which was expected and I'm fairly content with atm. Gonna try the recomp protocol now and if I can't gain much I'll just do a bulk version.

Used chalk for the first time for a DL max today....


Holy God that was awesome. Made it feel light as hell. I easily could have gone higher, but I had already promised some other brah the spot after that set.

I cannot WAIT to pull next week. I'm amazed at how big of a difference some chalk made.

Also, can someone who is a belt advocate summarize what I'm missing out on by NOT using one? I'm really tempted to buy one but not sure what benefit they actually provide.

Chalk is the best. Makes me feel like I have vice grips.

Depends on what you're using it for. But for deadlifts and squats, you are probably missing out on work with heavier weights. A belt offers you more core stability, which allows you to lift heavier.

I think it's pretty smart to use a belt so your other muscles can benefit from the heavier poundage used AS LONG as you're hitting the core with other movements (including compound movements like good morning variations and deadlift variations). For example, I'll pull and squat with a belt but I'll take it off for good mornings, zerchers, dimel deadlifts, etc.

Is there a particular "number" in which I should start using a belt? I'm squatting 405, pulling 435 and unsure how much I'm limiting myself by not using a belt. Am I still newbish enough to not need one, or should I throw one on and just go for it?

Also forgot to mention, hit a weighted plank PR today. 135 x 1min x 2 today. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Easiest way to find out is try using one and see how you feel about it! wink.gif

Awesome. You seem to be advancing pretty fast.

I'm probably going to cave in and buy some lifting shoes or knee wraps. Even though my form is alright, my legs are just too long and I feel like I'm torquing the shit out of my knees hitting parallel. Squatting and being tall do not mix well.
