I have no problem with people using less than perfect form / full ROM, except for when they talk about how much they lift.
Half squatting 2xBW is not the same thing as ATG. TKJTG's pull up form was def good enough and going higher up to the chest is extremely hard and will most likely not lead to more gains. That said, a lot of other guys are so full of shit about what they really can lift.
Do you even macros?
Don't wanna sound rude, but it's pretty weird to talk about how you're getting a bit too fat when you're eating that. The more fat you eat on a surplus, the more calories get stored as fat, generally. If it's just a once-in-a-while meal, that's another thing.
Oh for sure, I think i've mentioned I try to get my 3,500 daily calories as clean as possible, this is a once in the blue Sunday meal. Wish it was more often though
