Just ran out of bronkaid this morning. Thanks bacon fistbump.gif

Started taking it with consistency last week. There were days I didn't eat until after 8. Hovering around 170 now, diet has been shit food but still in a caloric deficit.

Top lol at saying because you don't squat, press and deadlift 3 days a week your lazy. People do have other things to do, which are going to impede your ability to recover from that. When I was 18 I could squat every day of the week and then just sleep and eat all day and I'd be fine, but I can't do that now.

Got my contract in the mail, waitress flat mate russled as fuck I'm getting like 3 times her salary as my base. Apparently it's unfair because she works really hard and why should I get more money when I have no actual skills and I'm 4 years younger then her. I'm not really sure either, but I definitely should be.

Newest member of the rhet injured crew checking in. Called for a doctors appointment last night after having discomfort in my left knee for a week. Woke up this morning with my knee swollen to the point where I couldn't bend it. Patellofemoral pain syndrome is what the doctor said it is. Will be on ibuprofen till it fixes up :confused:

Trained w/ the Welsh and English rugby selections, in towns for the 7s tournament. Apparently, uni-gym is the best in the area, so 7s is using it as essentially the "fitness home base" for everyone coming into town. Kind of cool.

Big, lean guys. Very impressed. If only my life consisted of nothing but playing and training for a sport... :lesigh:

If I'm coming up out of a deadlift bent forward then straightening up, what am I doing wrong? I try to straighten up earlier but somethings making it hard.

Video of new and improved squat form, was going to video the whole session from warm up to 1RM then back down to reps, but of course my phone had to die, and the charger that I thought was in my gym bag was not there.

Anyway, here you go. Comment and critique away

Better.. but still needs improvement. You need to shift your weight back more. You can clearly see your feet/shoes turning inwards.

How exactly do I make myself do that? I try to drive from the heels on the way up, but for some reason I can't get that mental cue to go

Go down a bit slower and focus on keeping your weight back. You can see how right before you hit parallel your body wants to fall forward.

edit: just saw your above post. If you're falling forward on the way down, you'll also fall forward on the way up. Focus on dropping your hamstrings down and keeping a big chest, drive your head into the bar.

Chest up is good call, need to do that.

Also, finalized my cutting routine, if anyone wants to chime in feel free. @conceptionist you especially haha.

Basically intermittent fasting mixed with leangains/carb cycling.

I'm going to start with 2700 calories a day, and see how I respond to that. Aiming for 1.5/2lb loss per week to start. I'm currently between 205-210 depending on time of day, probably 18% BF.

I work from 9-5, can get to the gym around 6 30. Going to make eating window from 3-11, no carbs at all pre-training, only fats and protein. green tea, black coffee and water will be used to aid in IF, and ECA stack if I can track it down.

Workout Day Macros

2700 calories

205g - protein
205g- carbs
110g - fats

rest days

2200 calories

protein stays the same
160g of carbs
72 grams protein

going to do prowler pushes and swimming once or twice a week on rest days depending how i feel. want to get down to at least 185. also if i find that energy is running low in the gym, its better to cut volume than weight and intensity right?

Sit back and try to "spread the floor".  Push through your heels and press your knees out.

 

Your weight is forward so it is making your feet fall and rotate inward.  If you keep the weight back, you can press with your heels.
