Hook her up with some of your steroids. I have an eating disorder, too. It's call seefood diet.
My back has been slowly coming back. I was actually kinda pissed about it and told my co-worker I was just going to fuck my back and do some squats and deadlifts. He recommended me to try the Bulgarian method of using ice and heat, 20 minutes on for each. I tried it and with only 1 session the pain/soreness subsided by a whole bunch. He calls it tissue pumping out the swelling. Anyhow, any one here use the method or has a better way of treating common weight lifting injuries?
will you stop fucking crying about being a DYEL already? could be much worse, a doctor of all people should be appreciative of his health
Haha, he should start doing some HIIT stuff a couple of times a week. Might lose the BB body, but he'll stay in good shape.
Real muscle loss starts about two weeks after you've stopped training. Two days if you are bedridden.
I think that would be the worst idea if the goal is to spare muscle mass. I would rather eat to gain a bit of weight since roughly 30% of the weight gain in non-strength training individuals is muscle, given that they are not fat to begin with. For people who lift, that percentage is obviously higher.
Note that the bigger the caloric surplus, and the fatter you already are, and the longer you've been lifting, the higher the percentage of fat gain will be. But yeah, fat non lifting people usually have more muscle mass hiding than skinny non lifting people. An interesting example is that some sumo-wrestlers ave more muscle mass than BBers at Mr.olympia in competition condition, and the sumo guys don't even lift that much.
So it has been about a week and a half since I've strained my back. I've been benching, pull uping, and weighted side bending for about a week and a half, now, for 4 sessions a week, for about 6 sessions. Not sure if that's enough time for gains but I've benched 275 x1 today. I think I could have grinded another rep but didn't feel like straining. I'm hoping my back would be 100% healed by the two weeks mark. If not, I'll just give it another week of icing and heating. I'm nervous to see how much of my gains on the squats and dead lifting I would have lost...
I think just to be on the safe side, when I'm healed, I'll go back down to cycle 1, week 1 of the Candito program. Bye bye 4 weeks of gains...FML
