Being from New Jersey, I kind of can fill in the blanks about Geordie shore culture

I think about 2 months ago, I upped my protein by a bit and it coincided with a time when I started seeing weights move up in the gym.

 

Probably started to take in 20-30 grams more a day on saturday and curious how it will go this time around. Definitely felt like I had more energy at the gym today, especially since I did chest/back today and did bi's/tri's/core yesterday. Weights were higher today than the last workout which totally surprised me. 

 

Hit 90x8 for DB bench and 1 arm DB row. Got 3x10x150lb for pulldowns and 2x10 @120lb for seated cable row. Form was pretty good through and through and it felt goodddd!

 

3 supersets:

DB Bench + DB Row

Incline DB Bench + Cable row

'Decline' Cable Flyes + Lat PD.

Protein --> Amino Acids --> Gluconeogenesis --> Energy

damn that's a lot of protein. I'd like to see what an average training / off day looks like for you charlie.

Just out of curiosity:
Have you ever lowered the protein to recommended levels for strength athletes (around 160-200g for you) while you keep the total calories the same with more carbs and/or fat?

Training/rest day calories and macros are about the same. About 350g protein, 400g carbs, 150g fats.

Yep, I have. I get flatter looking but worst of all, my recovery from session to session suffers.

Man, my girlfriend eats more than 160g protein in a day and she's 150 pounds.

The moment I had her bump up her protein and lower her fats/carbs while still maintaining the same amt of calories, she started getting leaner and stronger. Progressed faster and recovered faster between workouts.

And that isn't out of the norm from the experience I've had with helping friends with their diets and speaking with successful powerlifters.

Whoever recommends I eat 160 grams of protein while I walk around 230+ is someone I don't want to be taking advice from tbh. Not about a diet for powerlifting at least.

I have met a few brits who seem to be in that Geordie Shore kinda culture.

It's also interesting that rugby league is gaining more traction over than than union. My union-purist mind tells me that league is much more bogan-friendly than union.

Oh, you're from New Zealand? How do you find it?

I'm starting Rugby this summer (not a big sport in Quebec, Canada)... any tips? Not even sure if it's union or league foo.gif

That is interesting.
I've heard from others that higher protein has helped with recovery in tough training periods.

Getting leaner with percentually more protein is expected, as protein has a higher thermogenic effect than carbs and fat. You burn more calories by eating protein than carbs and fat. Protein is almost impossible to store as bodyfat as well (even in caloric surplus). Carbs can be converted to fat and all fat you eat is stored as fat (can also be used off, of course).

The interval I gave is about the common scientific standard in sports, strength and body recomposition, incl. bodybuilding.

In severe caloric redtriction the recommendation is sometimes higher, but I assumed you were on a surplus.

We can all read all the studies. I mean, they're fun to read. I get it. I like to read them too. But at the end of the day, do whatever works! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

rhet marketing bros; concept and GN. Care to share your working experience at a marketing / pr firm versus in house marketing team for a company? I've done both, I think I prefer working for an in house marketing team because it's a bit more focused and usually has better benefits.
