Got another girl's number at the gym. This peruvian dancer chick.

"Are you training for something?" after doing a bunch of planks and shit is the best opener ever.

I think you misunderstood my point.

Some people eat certain carbs because they have more protein or more fiber (legumes in contrast to potatoes and white rice). This is not recomended, as you're better off getting your protein from animal sources and fiber from leafy vegetables and fruit. It's simply higher quality protein in meat than legumes and grains (it's actually the protein part, gluten, in wheat that cause problem for some people). By getting your fiber from veggies and fruit you're automatically also getting more nutrients. Think of you calories and macros as a buffer - how can we fill it the most optimal way?

I feel better eating like this at least, but of course I eat a burger every now and then.

What would you guys recommend as shoulder exercises for Oly lifting? I've just been doing different presses (Ohp, push and jerk) with some rotator cuff work as prehab.

Same for upper and lats; as I feel like they are lagging quite a bit as well as shoulders.

 

Thanks in advance!

 

Also agree with squat with comfortable form; most of my friends whether they train for general fitness or bodybuilding squat in some form of hybrid.

Gluten causes an autoimmune response in people with coeliac disease. It's absolutely fine for everyone else. Note that plenty of animal sources also illicit immune responses in people - alot of people are allergic to a protein in chicken. Shellfish allergies are common. Nuts. Fruits. Beestings. etc etc. Just because someone's allergic to chicken, does that mean that healthy athletes should avoid it?

Proteins in legumes are also demonstrably fine and in healthy when cooked properly.

The measure of protein quality is the amino acid composition. Yes, animal sources are generally better at this, but if you balance the amino acid content from different sources there's no reason to worry much about this.

I agree that people should eat more fruit and veggies.

What I don't agree about is the idea that carbs need to come from starchy sources like potatoes and rice.

There is nothing wrong with taking in carbs that also contain fibre and a bit of protein. Why on earth would I avoid a food that contains carbs, protein and fibre? Breaking things into separates doesn't mean they're better. Maybe it makes it easier for some people to plan their macros.

Of course you will be fine eating whatever carbs that fit your macros. You'll probably get 90 percent of the same result with IIFYM than the most optimal diet there is. Although there's no wrong in eating foods that contain decent amounts of all three macros, I strongly believe that say fish oil fat is superior to fat in wheat products. If I only got 50g of fat to eat, why would I then fill half of that up with inferior quality sources?

I primarily tried this to see if it had any effect on how I felt / looked after my post workout carb loads. I cycle my carb intake which leads me to eating 300-500 grams of carbs during say 3-5 hours. Getting the bulk of those from sugary sources like cereals and white bread is the easieat way to get it all in, but it made me crash hard and bloat. I felt like I could fall asleep making studying difficult. I think a lot of people can relate to this.

Melonadejello is a fucking waywt slenderman nightmare. Not sure waywt knows wtf they are doing if they give him 30 upvotes for corpseface with soulpatches.

Part of the reason I've given up on WAYWT. They just don't know aesthetics like we do frown.gif

luckily there's still kgfan and regisdb9 to look good

I don't get SW&D waywhut either. Good to hear its not just me.
post #31945 of 49442
WAYWT isn't about aesthetics it's about nerding about clothes.

Posters are just living barbie dolls to hang expensive clothes on.

I miss when RHET had WAYWT's designed around showing off aesthetics.
post #31946 of 49442
Barbie dolls have decent aesthetics tho wink.gif

I agree waywt should be bout clothes tbh but I just don't get half of whats going on there. Melonadejello and his upvotes is a good example.
post #31947 of 49442
There's lots of dudes on WAYWT who look like total shit bodywise but get thumbs like motherfuckers.

And then there's rants like this

The worst though is when dudes on Random Fashion Thoughts or WAYWT talk about health and fitness. The Nike thread is also pretty bad.

Clothing looks better on skinnier guys.

If you got any decent size on you, you ain't going to look as good in clothing. That's that.
post #31949 of 49442
Working out has saved me from caring about fashion. Now adays I just try to look like the Brawny man.

assistance movements for classic lifts or for what? most presses are fine, PP has better crossover for the jerk, btn pressing is usually also fine.

you don't really need specific bodypart exercises if you're a weightlifter, you need assistance exercises to fix whatever's keeping you from putting more weight on the classic lifts.

also CS did you make the 80kg?
