I do not understand the 50% off shit, i'd rather just not do anything. I'm not going to go to the gym and bench 20kg dumbbells and squat 70kg for a bunch of reps. Thats not going to do anything.

I guess it's more of a suggestion for newbies as some people may have difficulty taking a week off. Same reason as why there's curls in SPBR. Even John says it's because it keeps the Broz happy and does not impact negatively your overall training.

Tkjtg;
Approx what bf % are you now and how strict are you with your diet in terms of food choices?

I want to break the 10% barrier but it feels I've stalled for the last two weeks. I currently count everything I eat and make sure I hit my macros every day. I eat a lot of meat, some non fat high protein dairy and good sources of fat. I cycle carbs and calories for rest and workout days. Maintenance on workout days and -30% on rest days give me a avarage 400 kcal deficit per day.

I still eat a very small amount of sugars, like fruit, cereals, some sauces and low calorie ice cream, but only on carb refeed days straight after training (as advised on Leangains)

This is what I am thinking. If I am not going to make or keep gains from a gym trip I will just spend my time elsewhere. Besides, usually after a burnout my first trip back to the gym is about where I was in peak form during the cycle.

O and here is something interesting from VICE:

http://www.vice.com/en_uk/read/rob-rhinehart-no-longer-requires-food

Dude makes his own MRP shakes, consumes ~90% of his calories in liquid form. I honestly wish I could do this, low key cooking and eating for every single meal blows.

Wasn't it linked not so long ago by Rambo ?

decided to do some hack squats leg press today to let the back rest

8 plates and some change on each side was a piece of cake. Still skinny enough to wear modern slim pants in a 48/32 jeans size.

Only downside is that my knee has been tender, probably because of hyper extending on my zerchers like a moron shog[1].gif

8 plates plus the weight of the sled? thats pushing 900lbs. Must be different to the hack squat i use.

I think I'm probably around 9-10% BF right now. I eat the same few things every day and at approx 700 cals below maintenance. I'll be getting stricter(weighing more vigorously, bodybugg, recording) in the coming weeks.

my clip is about 6 years old now and still going strong. i dont even have the new version, just an OG 1g black clip. still works good, although i wish it was easier to toggle shuffle on/off.

i've got 3 now. 2 for my backpacking and one for the gym. the new version has a better clip, but is a bit more battery draining because of the color screen. still, i've gotten all three for under $100. Can't beat that.
