All grains contain anti-nutrients. Basically it can make it harder for your body to take up the nutrients. Some people are allergic to gluten as well. Many people have also found that wheat in any form makes them hold more water.

If you feel fine eating wheat, by all means continue. I know that I can't take in too much at a time, and if it's oatmeal it has to be cooked. Otherwise my stomach goes crazy and cramps. By cutting out whole grains it's gonna get a lot harder to get a good amount of fiber, but I've found that I do fine on 10-15g of fiber or so a day.

Just to be clear, as you are mentioning oats, gluten, and wheat in a continuous train of thought, oats are not wheat and do not realistically contain gluten.

also hate the mobility bandwagon. I mean if you'd model your chosen sports performance as a function of mobility and flexibility you'd find that it would be a concave function. if you need to perform some specific movement and can't, it's totally fine to use these methods to get you there, but once you're there your 'mobility' doesn't mysteriously vanish into the gently tren-scented gym air overnight.

it's ridiculous as fuck if some guys take like 30-40 minutes 'mobilizing' before they lift.

Mobility does disappear. Just because you do front squats in the gym for an hour then sit on your ass 6 hours a day at work then sit when you get home, shit will shorten and wrong shit will lengthen. Spoken like a true oly lift. Oly lifters have some of the worst posture I've ever seen, almost worse than runners.

...It's not?

Not saying you're wrong as I can admit  I'm no expert in the field except from my personal experience, but this is taken from Wikipedia:

 Oats, like rye, are usually considered a secondary crop, i.e., derived from a weed of the primarycereal domesticates wheat and barley

the term you're looking for is weightlifter, and I mean that if you're looking to improve your mobility in order to do some movement basically a k* routine is total overkill.

if mobility is your hobby that's cool

First day back in the gym since my trip a month ago. Felt so refreshed with all my injuries gone. Also feel sore as fuck this morning which is a nice feeling. My new program is pretty much gonna be "eat big, lift big".

so i'm sick of being shitty at running so i downloaded bridge to 10k app because i've done 5k before.

Turns out I can't rely on the optimal conditions that led me to the 5k's i've done and was only able to do like 20 minutes on the treadmill @ 5.5 mph w/ 3% incline before tapping out because my calves were fucking killing me. I downloaded the couch to 5k app and i'm gonna start at week 6.

Also, in order to make this "stick" i'm gonna start going to the gym first thing in the morning, which probably means no more IF.

That sentence is poorly written. If you follow the link for "secondary" it is clearer. Oats are not a wheat product.

Oats do not themselves contain gluten, but almost all commercially available oats are cross contaminated with gluten.

What is so bad about gluten?
post #35366 of 57256

some people have a wheat allergy caused by it and it's especially horrible for people with celiac disease.

Yea my ass and waist deffo shrunk as my squat and deadlift went up and bodyweight maintained. Bought a pair of Outlier Kierin Cuts 34, Slim Dungarees 35, and Nyco Slims 35. The "slim" stuff actually fits me better.
post #35368 of 57256
^ Let me know how the slim dungarees work out. I've always avoided them due to the thigh measurement. I've pretty much sold all my pants except a pair of denim and sweats. Bought a Veilance Voronoi and hopefully that works out.

Someone buy some drop crotch stuff, hate it, and then sell it to me on the cheap smile.gif.

IDK if I mentioned this but myself and some others are in talks to open up a non-profit gym in the lowest income neighborhood in my city. I'm extremely excited about this project, gonna be right next to or very close to a huge farmer's market too. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif
post #35370 of 57256
Would not visit lowest income neighborhoods in my city.

How are you planning to fund it? Grant money?
