So much this, are you not adding double cream too?


175g of egg pasta, 300g of bacon, 2 eggs and 150ml of double cream hnnnng. The sauce alone is 950 cals.


Crossfitted so hard in the gym today. My gym bro asked if I could overhead squat, which obvs I can so I decided to do some after my squats. Was warming up with 60kg for a double, first rep was easy, second rep I lost my balance on the way up fell backwards and chucked the bar at the rack, it landed on the pins and slightly bent the bar. Video recorded the set, nearly crushed my hand between the bar and the rack when i dropped it.

If I don't buy pancetta I buy bacon ends for dirrrrrrttt cheap.

At what point should I add more accessory lifts? I think I've posted my workout before but it's essentially squats, deadlifts, bench, OHP, pendlay rows and pullups.  Not a lot of accessory stuff right now.

Dips + weighted dips? I love dips sooooo

I just add more eggs haha. Cream might make me feel sick of eating it.

Depends what you consider accessories. My routine is almost all compounds except for shoulders, but I consider shit like high rep rows, dips etc. accessories as they aren't part of the big 5 (bench, bent over rows, squats, deads, shoulder press). If size is the goal I think doing as many lifts per session as you can do + recover to do the next workout is fine. If numbers are the goal probably just the minimum you need to get past sticking points.

I would add more accessory lifts when you're squatting over 100kg, benching over 80kg, deadlifting over 150kg.

My routine is those exercises plus:
Front squats. juicy quads
stiff legged deadlifts. juicy hams. Sometimes I actually alternate these with deadlifts because heavy squatting and deadlifting all the time makes it hard for my lower back to recover enough each week.
incline dumbbell bench press. bench press alone ain't the best for chest)
Dumbbell overhead press. barbell OHP goes up slowly by itself
Behind the neck OHP. old school exercise to make people stare at me and tempt them to tell me it's bad for me or some shit. Also, to go all Coldsnap on you, it makes sure that your shoulders are properly externally rotated and not tilted forward from too many pushing movements)

Others worthy of consideration:
glute-ham raise (dat ass)
snatch grip deadlift (great for upper back and uses less weight than conventional so you don't tax your lower back too much)
snatch high pull (cunt of an exercise but great for upper back, traps)

Went to 5 guys today. WTF at $13 for a poverty burger, im guessing it's cheaper in america.There's only one in England and it's in covent garden, which kind of explains the price. They have free peanuts, some weird drink machine with over 1000 kind of sodas and you can buy beer for like $6 a bottle. I assume they're trying to market it as higher end then in america.

^ Even in America it's pretty pricey.

Hate pausing my benches. I was told the head judge in North Carolina is notorious for his long pause, around the 4 second times.. thanks for taking 30lbs off my bench..

Expensive and overpriced in the states as well.

Did the deload week for 5/3/1 and I feel dumb as fuck for skipping them earlier. Hitting PR's every lift and every week now. Also carbonara with pancetta icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Whoever told you 4 seconds was greatly exaggerating on purpose or via not grasping how long a whole second is.

Yeah my bench is at 175 and my OHP around 105, those are the two that really slowed down.  I'll try tossing in the extra DB press and bench maybe.  I also do face pulls or the real delt flye machine every once in awhile; I was doing upright rows for awhile so I think my rear delt is a little behind.

I've had 3 lifters tell me his pauses are ridiculously long. One person has been judged by him for 30+ years.

Red Robin >>>>>>>>>>>>>> Five Guys
post #35414 of 57263
Not really an apples to apples comparison, but yes.
post #35415 of 57263
Five Guys is just way too expensive for what they offer. I can get a fresh ground burger with Port Salut cheese, a fresh-baked bun, duck fat fries, and a beer for the same price as a burger, fries, and a soda at Five Guys. If I could get out of Five Guys for under $10 (Chipotle price range), it would be a much better deal.
