Like 18-20% i'd say.

Anyone have any experience with the Stick? What model should I get? I'm tempted to spring for the stiffest one since I enjoy pain when it comes to trigger points and massage and whatnot but I don't know what I'm getting into.

I'm actually gonna start biking to work and try to get my workout in in the morning beforehand. Was considering bundle packing my work clothes so they don't get wrinkled, but not sure how to do that with a blazer/suit. Does it work just as well?

Also, LG calls for BCAA's in the morning, can't I just take some whey or something instead? I don't have BCAA's and don't want to spend the money.

The more muscular you are, the stiffer you should get.

 

If you guys work out and can't eat a big meal for a few hours, what do you do? Protein shake and granola bar while you wait to eat?

You only take the Bcaa's to get the amino acids while keeping calories as low as possible, so you're still almost fasting during the workout.

Martin has said 30g of whey gives the same effect (same amount of amino acids) as his recommendation of 10g bcaa pre workout, so you could do that. If you want to be nit picky with the fasting aspect, you should get a whey isolate with as few carbs and fats as possible.

I'm not that picky but my whey is already pretty much only protein, I'll just do that, thanks!

What do you use?

if you work out in the morning you'll want to eat something decent afterwards. i tried IF last year around this time: 1 scoop whey 530am, lift 6am, 1 scoop whey 8am, first meal noon and i was ready to murder somebody before twelve. works well for dropping weight, but in retrospect i doubt that extra 4 hours of fasting from 8-12 really did a whole lot; i probably would've been better off with a window of 8-6 instead of 12-8.

Martin has written about what you should do if you train early and fasted and can't eat within an hour afterwards.

Protein "pulses" seems to be the most common strategy. Basically what Jarude said, but a bit more frequently protein shakes.. Martin advices that you'll take 10g bcaa or 30g whey every hour up until the meal.

 

Not eating before and not eating after training is basically the worst for muscle growth. You don't get fuel and you don't get as recovered as you possibly can. Sure, meal timing doesn't matter whole lot for body recomposition as long as calories are the same over a given time period, but the meals around training are still pretty central for performance and recovery.

Not planning on training fasted.

I'm thinking of eating a big breakfast (omelette or such) then lifting over lunch and grabbing something after. If I lift too much later, it'll be 3ish hrs between finishing and eating a sizable meal.

I just had the worst workout ever. Got either bitten by a spider or stung by a bee right on my neck where the muscle attaches to the base of the skull, hard to turn my head it's so sensitive. Worked up to 200lbs highbar and it felt really heavy, felt like I was going to puke or fall asleep. So I just went home. Did like 35 total reps.
