Considering using this as an opportunity to expand my veggie cooking ability. Just bring over a big ass sack of delicious veggies and then buy some steak.

Made a veggie Qinoa stew. It was decent, but like needs more savory.

Wat do.

1 cup quinoa
2 cups chicken broth
1 cup corn
1 cup black beans
1 cup tomatoes diced
1/4 cup red onion
1/2 cup feta
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1/4 cup lime/lemon juice
2 tbsb evoo
2tbsp butter
1 tsp++ cumin

1. soak quinoa for 10 mins
2. drain quinoa, toast in pan with 2 tbsp butter for ~5 mins until it starts to stick
3. boil in chicken broth, remove and refrigerate
4. whisk together lime/lemon juice, cilantro, cumin, evoo and drizzle over cold quinoa
5, mix in rest of ingredients, voila

cumin is the key here so if you need more kick feel free to up that. ive never used the full 1/4 cilantro so you can go easy on that if you'd like. you can chop and add whatever you'd like... maybe spinach would be a good choice to throw in there too? either way, just make sure to take the time to let the quinoa cool down because its delicious when cold.

belts aren't for preventing injuries, they're for increasing your neuromuscular efficiency by letting you tense up more. So, you can lift more weight with a belt than without = getting stronger

You just proved they are in fact for preventing injuries. The more you fire your TVA, the less likely you are to get injured. Not saying that's the only reason for a belt, but probably the most important.

That being said, if you have a strong core already and have your form dialed in, beltless and belted pulling during training nets no difference for some people. For example, my coach is a 800-pound puller. He rarely uses a belt during deadlifts just because he doesn't feel comfortable with one and it doesn't really make a difference for him. He wears one sometimes during training and always during meet pulls because it provides an extra layer of security.

I pull nearly identical numbers with and without a belt. But during heavy training, I will put a belt on just for peace of mind even though I sometimes feel uncomfortable with the belt digging into my ribs and hips.

But hey... what do I know~

That isn't to say you should be training without a belt (or with one). See what fits into your training with your needs and future goals.

What do you guys use for a pre-workout? I liked Assault till they changed up the formula, now it's got too much stim. I workout in the early evenings, right after work so I have to watch what I use or I can't sleep at night. Been using ON's Amino Energy but I'm missing the BA tinglies confused.gif

two different movements with different purposes. back movement = bent-over row, delt movement = upright row. why are you choosing between the two?
