post #45226 of 57266
I Opened up a Roth and put the maximum in, then opened up a individual account which goal is to be a nice down payment on a house in 4 years (even though I don't want to buy a house, and like renting, but I figured that is a decent goal). Was sorta easy after the general guidance today. My retirement date is 2050, got a lot of livin to do. I took a look at what I woulda lost at 2009 and sorta shat a brick.

You'd have it back and then some though.  Real estate is a terrible investment for the most part, but at the same time it's really nice having a place that's your's.  Just don't sink your whole net worth into a house.

Are you seriously taking the time to learn the movement before moving up in weight?  Way to go.  I thought I was in a place to give advice, now my advice on deadlifts is  I wouldn't get distracted by others progression or advice because circumstance is everything.  The guy who confused me the most at my gym did snatches every single day, with precision and relaxed motions, and within two years, this focused individual was snatching 375 lbs. Priority is everything.

I was thinking of getting her books, but not sure if she would like the science stuff. I'm actually thinking of just having her chip in for some of my food and I'll just start cooking her packaged meals during the day then teaching her on the weekends, since I work from home and I'm doing some sort of cooking throughout the day already. Or I could start flirting with the crossfit gals at my gym icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif
Yea you should def cook for her. I have for wifey, she loves it. Gonna be rough now that I'm gonna be working too.

Ummm.... well over 200. I think I could retain that strength at ~190-195 lbs. They are dead stop rows though, but I have pretty good bar speed now.

True, here's vid of me doing some light weight just to get the form down. I've taken in what I've learned from different tutorial videos on how to dead lift: Butt not to high, not to low, feet shoulder width apart, hands out side of the stance, keep the back flat and keep neutral spine, drive with the knees first, and when the bar passes your knees, drive with your hips to stand up, keeping your shoulders down, squeezing your gluts, and reverse to finish. 

 

Are my hips too low during the set up? I was told to keep the weight in your heels and drive with your heel into the ground. But when I do that, I tend to keep my hips lower.

I made 950 dollars today short selling my favorite ETN and 250 at work. 1200 in one day is pretty good for a 26 year old.

You can also hire Dan to coach you online (dunno if he's taking any new guys at the moment). Brandon was doing Dan's standard template pretty closely the first time around. Now he's doing a fairly customized version of it.

Also regarding doing the power lifts, every day usually starts with the lift you do in competition followed by close variations as assistance work. Then a few sets of back stuff, arm stuff, or whatever.

I eat 3600 calories a day, every meal cooked by myself and I leave my apt at 8 in the morning and is usually back at 8 again in the evening.

Every sunday I just prep a ton of food. Throw 2 pounds of chicken, beans and veggies in the slowcooker, and divide it into 7 lunches. Make another big batch of meat for my 5 post workout meals. Every night I prep rice for the next day in the rice cooker. I bring oats, milk, nut butter and cottage cheese to work for pre workout meal before I leave the office for the gym.

How is all that food on the 7th day? I find that meat gets pretty nasty after 3 or so days.

I make pulled pork or pulled chicken and freeze it, so it holds up well. It also so damn easy to make on its own and in huge amounts and split into equal servings. I just throw some chicken breasts in the slow cooker along with the spices and bbq sauce and let it cook during the whole sunday.

 

I think most cooked food holds up pretty well in the freezer, but maybe a steak or whole chicken breast would get a bit dry. I know you can freeze cooked rice and store it for like 5 months in the freezer.

Slow cooker is the bomb for that.

I do the same thing, except I cook 5-6lbs on the sunday. With stock and simple spices (that way I can add whatever to it pretty easy and won't be a weird combo of flavours). Then my breakfast is a frittatta that I cook on sunday night. 8 eggs, 2 cups whites, 6 chicken sausages, 1lb grassfed beef, peppers/capsicum and onions. Gives me 5 breakfasts at about 60g protein, 25g good fat and minimal carbs. Means I only have to cook breakfast on weekends and with all that chicken I usually only have to worry about making 1 meal per day, and if I'm too lazy I can just have more chicken or a shake.

Hmmm this is an idea. I freeze chicken raw and bake it with seasoned bread crumbs. Works for me but it only works fresh... crust gets soggy as shit after a day in the fridge. Maybe I will try baking the chicken and then freezing it, though I'm not sure how it would thaw.

I have a slow cooker as well so I will give that a try. It is very slow though, wifey says it doesn't cook at all supposedly.

Do you bake that frittata?

Squats as of late. Thoughts on form?

Yeah. Just saute the peppers, onions with some garlic (usually with grass fed butter, sometimes coconut oil). Then add the sausage and beef. Once it's cooked I just pour it into a bowl filled with the beaten eggs and whites and salt and pepper. Pour all of that into a pie dish type thing and bake it at 400 for about 25mins. Easy and it's pretty delicious. And since it's so straight forward it's pretty easy to adjust macros and figure it all out.

Crat - It looks better than last video and that video looked better than the last one. Keep up the good work, keep that chest up a bit more too imo.
