Great. I own the book and that was kind of my plan, so thanks for the input. I am a little skeptical of his "drink a shit ton of milk every day" model, but yea I will just count my calories and make sure they are coming from good sources. 

 

Any recommendations on supplements?

At 272lb I'd be dubious if he can safely squat or deadlift. Yeah I don't think you need to do the gallon of milk a day thing.

That is not a general advice and certainly doesn't apply to your situation.

Almost sharted while front squatting last night. Good reminder to take care of business before heading to the gym.

Any experience/insight on the new fangled powerlifting shoe (unfortunately branded on their 'crossfit' line) from Reebok designed by Mark Bell?

Looks like a nice upgrade from Chucks, doesn't look too shabby either.

Chucks are too narrow for me, when my current pair was about done I got these. They are nice.

I thought these shoes compressed over 400lbs and goodmorning squat was bad :P

I'd drop the cardio during workouts if you're biking to work.

I know two guys with them. They both agree they are Chucks for people with fat feet. No more, no less. Both pull 500+ sumo fwiw

I pull both ways, they're 2 very different movements, which use different muscle groups. I only really feel sumo pulls in my hips and glutes, I feel conventional in my hams and back.

I wounder what kind of shit he was doing to his body to hit that 905lb squat. That's 65% of his old max.

read starting strength for advice on form but do this program instead:

http://forum.bodybuilding.com/showthread.php?t=144020421

that way you won't look like a t-rex when you're done.

Also don't do supplements, just track your calories and aim for a 500 calorie defecit a day, 1 g protein/lb lbm
post #41548 of 57256
anybody know of a food tracking website where you can customize your calorie goals by day?

i'm looking to do a program where i eat more on workout days and less on off days but i can't seem to find anything like that

i've used just an excel sheet in the past, but there's a few nice things about a site like myfitnesspal



i give up looking. just going to use excel
post #41549 of 57256

Uh you can custom add x calories burned in myfitnesspal.  But if it's just strength training don't even bother, it's like 100 calories burned.

 

I wouldn't do greyskull right off the bat, squat and DL progression will be too slow for a raw noob.

post #41550 of 57256
i'm not talking about calories burned but calories consumed

you can set a daily goal in MFP but you can't have it change on a daily basis which is what i want
