lol no problemo
good thing about rice pudding is you can make it in big batches and it keeps. bad thing is you then have mounds of deliciousness in the fridge teasing you on low carb days.
Yeah, Flame that's actually not a lot of food.
1 pound chicken, 1 pound rice, 2 cups of oats, 1 pound of mixed veggies, half a litre of milk, one scoop of whey + half a pound of berries. 3500 cals post workout in 3 meals spread over 3 hours. 500 cals pre workout. I thought I would die in the beginning, but now it goes down no problem. 2000 cals of pretty clean food in one sitting
Workout days: 4000 cals (35p/50c/15F)
Restdays: 3000 kal - slightly over my maintenance (0.35p/0.3c/0.35f)
As I've said, been eating like this for 6 months and 15 lbs gain total. From roughly 10% bf to 14.
Conditioning matters. Strength isn't everything.
It is, but at your current levels, it also wouldn't get in the way of your strength goals. So it's more of a "why not?" than a "why?"
This, and much of what goes on in this forum, reflects a very narrow view of fitness where strength is all that matters. Yes you've gotten stronger and bigger, but if you don't break a sweat working out, your endurance and stamina are going to be crap. I don't think it's a matter of cardiovascular health. I think it's about fitness. My favorite definition of fitness is that it's the ability to move heavy loads long distances, quickly. Your slow leisurely workouts have left you able to move very heavy loads, but you can't move them very far, and you certainly can't do it very quickly. You are so focused on one aspect of fitness that you are missing out on the other two. This may not matter to you because your interest is in getting big and in posting good numbers, rather than in any real application of fitness, but don't fall into the trap of starting to think that the gym is the real world. The gym is not the real world. The gym is training for the real world, and in the real world, speed, stamina, and endurance are all just as important as strength. A real athlete has to have all of these things.
