The last one shows me in a rear relaxed next to the guy who beat me. It seems the judges prefered size over definition in this, as in all the weight classes the bigger guys were beating guys who came in leaner. He looked great though and was a really nice guy(his calves were super juicy too!)

Does that shit wash off or you gotta walk around like that for a week

95% of it washes off with soap and hot water. Still got some in random spot and it stains your pores(from shaving) a bit. It's not noticeable at all anywhere except under fingernails.

Hey guys. I'm on a CKD diet and I need a little help with the snacks. My work has food and I've been trying to make it work with what I got.

So far I am eating:

breakfast:
eggs (estimated 3.5 to 4 eggs)
bacon (estimated 1.5 to 2 strips)
cheese (7g fat, 5 protein)
2 fish oil pills (2g fat)

lunch:
lettuce, turkey, ham (from a sandwich I didn't eat the bread and tomato)
cheese (18g fat, 11g protein)
1 oz almonds (14g fat, 6g protein)
1 fish oil (1g fat)

snack:
1.5% fat cottage cheese (4g fat, 28g protein)
cheese (7g fat, 5g protein)
1.5 oz almonds (21g fat, 9g protein)
2 fish oil (2g fat)

Dinner I eat at home so I can get the right nutrient ratio down.


My breakfast and lunch I think are around the right ratio but the snack is off. I am getting 34g fat and 42g protein when the ratio should be 65% fat, 35% protein, and 5% carbs. Anything I can use to up the fat content in there besides maybe buying a jar of peanut butter or swigging some olive oil?


As for the available snacks at work are:
1.5% cottage cheese
1% greek yogurt
tillamook medium cheddar
string cheese
almonds


Then there are other snacks which are bad for the CKD diet:
trail mix (too many carbs but the fat and protein ratios are good)
fruit (blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, strawberries, apples, bananas) No fruit on CKD diet
chocolate covered raisins
"health" bars like luna
junk food (chips, ice cream, etc)

Thanks.

For those that are interested, here is the workout I wrote for my own goals for the next few months:

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AlUdK62VAWpqdEUyV1dZLWZuTmZSVVlZU1M3RmVIRUE&usp=sharing

Will likely tweak it as I get into it, but this will be the basis.

My thoughts while writing it:
-Definitely geared towards Size/Aesthetics, but wanted to include some low-rep high-power stuff in there too
-Wanted to have a deload every 5th week immediately following doing max singles or doubles on compound lifts
-4 day split will be less time demanding than my previous 6 day split
-Wanted to include small amount of cardio in so that I'm not miserable doing it. I might end up reducing it to once/week if I find it's interfering with muscle gains. Also decided to include HIIT immediately after squat day since there's some belief that cycling helps w/ faster recovery
-Biggest missing exercise is overhead press. OHP is the only exercise I have gotten injured doing, and it's happened more than once. I've found I get good shoulder development with other lifts, including bench press, arnold press, lateral raises, and others. I purposefully decided I didn't want to do OHP.
-Decided to drop the number of reps I was doing in favor of increased intensity(and faster workouts). In this workout most days are 14 or 15 total sets.

Got a box of toys in the mail... Shin skins, yohimbine, adidas powerlift trainers, pb2 and Walden caramel dip.

Am excite to be on uppers, not looking forward to liss though. Adidas are comfy enough but kinda fug in person. The Walden caramel dip is ridiculously good for being calorie free, and the pb2 is pretty good too... 45 cals per 2 tbsp

pb2 is that dehydrated stuff right? Saw it but was scared.

It's just the refuse after they extract peanut oil.

I hate the pins on the squat rack at my gym. It seems like I fall right in between two heights. One is slightly high and requires me to almost lift the bar off my back which seems exceedingly dangerous. The one below is too low and awkward for me to walk the weights into. Basically had to bail on the bar today trying to get them into the low pins. I can manage it alright at low weights but it is becoming an issue as I build.

I just had to rebuy my weightlifting shoes because I grew out of them, damn bulking 137lbs - 190lbs grew almost a whole shoe size. I did throw in some Rehband knee sleeves though, figured I'd start using them.

Rack at the gym had the same problem. So I cut out a sheet of plywood that fit in the rack and brought it to the gym. I just put it down when I squat, boosts me up an extra inch.

Pretty off topic but holy shit I love my aero press. Magic shit.

Took 5mg of yohimbine for some fasted cardio and definitely caught the upper buzz from it. Will probably build up weekly to the recommended dose. Cheap as it is, I hope its not just snake oil - that lower belly fat is damned stubborn.

It works and will work well, Lyle McDonald swears by it for the sever variations of his The Stubborn Fat Solution...

Just ordered a rumble roller from Amazon. Been doing ghetto massage on the pins in the power rack between sets before now lol.

Sort of off topic, wtf kind of stuff do you wear when you're a power lifter or body builder with huge thighs? Tried on some chinos the other day and I couldn't get my calves through. And I'm guessing if you can deadlift 600+ your thighs probably have a couple inches on mine.

I ran the gamut when it came to jawns when I started powerlifting. Started with APC NS then then Levis 501, then grew out of 501s so got older cuts like Levi 1944s and 1937s, eventually grew out of that and those were the largest cut jeans so I got some made to measure selvedge denim with a 13" rise, 14" thigh, etc etc.
