Eggs yes, milk no, meat n/a. Haven't really noticed a difference with eggs, tbh, but it's cheaper than buying cartons at the grocery store (assuming your farm/barn isn't run by huge dicks).

Yes, I believe its worth it.  Meat prices are going to be way higher than you are accustomed to paying at a typical US supermarket.  Eggs/Milk shouldn't be much of a price premium. I don't drink much milk though.

Does anyone occasionally get excruciating headaches after a work out? I'm guessing I probably need to drink more water or something.

I do! Especially after doing HIT. Dehydration is commonly known as one of the main causes for fatigue and headaches after a workout so drink up bro. Also, you can help prevent these headaches by making sure you have a well balanced meal a few hours before your workout. This will ensure that you will have an efficient amount of energy (carbs, glucose, calories) to get you through your exercises.

Word, sometimes i'm not too good with the water intake, i've gotta train myself to drink more.

As for having a meal, to be honest I feel better working out fasted. I do take some BCAA's beforehand though.

Yeah, I usually just keep a bottle next to me and take a swig in between sets during my workout.  BCAA's are great for that extra boost of energy smile.gif

Second day at my new summer job. Desk job and sitting down all day. I can literally feel the anterior pelvic tilt building up again and the shoulders rolling forward with all the computer use. My earlier warehouse work with walking and carrying stuff all day seems like a dream now.

Really don't want to spend my life after uni like this. What do you desk guys do to limit the damage? Sit on a lacrosse ball or something?

Date went well. Seitan is really easy to cook



She had Bok choi and swiss chard from a friend of hers who was an organic farmer, so I just did a standard stir fry with garlic, oil and soy sauce, with a liberal sprinkle of lemon juice to really make it taste "bright". Seitan was made using the post punk kitchen recipe.

Kale salad was also fresh from the farm, we dressed it in a light vinagerette (diced garlic, lemon juice, vinegar, olive oil, dijon mustard, s&p)
Quinoa was lightly toasted, and then prepared using the vegetable broth from the seitan, with capers sprinkled on top.

The mild flavor of Seitan kind of made the nontraditional combination of greens "work", if that makes sense, especially with the lemon juice. I'm looking forward to trying it with more flavorful sauces/different vegetables, because it came out awesome.

Personal best today.



I realize that I'm way more powerful when my head and spine is neutral. Watch my sticking point, soon as my head goes to neutral the bar goes up.

Is there anyway to ensure this and prevent hyperextension of the spine?

Also should I use wider grip to pull elbows down more?

Here's my setup that I found to help a little. Although it still fuckin sucks and will mess up your posture, I used a standing desk for awhile but that game me problems so I switched back to a sitting desk and just take 15 min breaks every hour and work an extra hour a day.

Things that help;
Herman Miller chair, buy a used one for cheap
monitor at right eye level
ergonic keyboard that lets you type with shoulders externally rotated
trackball mouse for your left hand, use like 80% of the time and just switch to right hand to give your left hand a break
knobler to workout that chest tightness from chair sitting, and pin it between your chair and your scapula
