Fair point. I just felt like the idea of saying "don't do this" is silly. There are (usually) always other (often better) options, but it doesn't mean something isn't worth doing.

Yeah, also a fair point that I should've elaborated on it instead of being lazy/rebellious youth.

Also, on an exercise-related note my physiotherapist told me I'll most likely have a smooth treatment for my ACL injury due to strong knees. Still waiting on results from my MRI scan, but at least I can be hopeful.

Went up to new hampshire with some friends on a ski trip. I don't ski so i figured i'd make something with the local cuisine in our condo.

Bought some maple syrup so I figured I'd make fried chicken and pancakes (no waffle maker). Also got some chorizo that my friend's girlfriend used to make a paella and raw milk she used to make tapioca.

Didn't get the Paella or Tapioca, but here's the chicken and pancakes:



It was fucking awesome.

I tweaked my back deadlifting last week. I've been running 5/3/1, but I want to do some BB upper body stuff for a few weeks to give the back a rest. Should I just do a chest/tris/shoulders, back/bis/abs split or is there something better?
post #51424 of 57256
erbs, what if you figured out why you tweaked your back and get yourself stronger in that manner?
post #51425 of 57256
^ That's definitely part of my long term plan, but I don't want to hit my back until it fully heals. I let the bar drift forward at the start of my pull and I rounded my lower back trying to complete the rep. Should have dropped the bar.

How do you guys with big quads solve the suit pant problem?

Im figuring higher rise and pleats, and ofc not slim fit.

These ones  are mid rise, flat front and pretty slim (bought them after cutting), and they would not work by just sizing up.

 

What about the jacket?

The jacket on this suit is a bit longer with a lower buttoning point. It makes me look less stocky but the longer jacket is not very modern.

My tailor actually had to recut my pants to remove the pleats because my quads were causing the pleats to open when standing. Pants are ~13'' rise IIRC and are pretty slim through the thigh (comparable to my ~12.75'' trousers) with an 8.5'' leg opening tapered from the knee down. But I have minimal vastus lateralis development compared to VMO & rectus femoris. 

 

I've always preferred my jackets to be longer to present a leaner silhouette. I find Attolini/Luciano Barbera does this very well for my frame.

Here's my most recent squat session (bout tree fiddy pounds). Currently five weeks out from regional championships. Depth a bit borderline/high on a few too many reps. Might get close to a five plate squat though...

Your technique and angles look very solid.

Good job.

Hmmm... yeah higher rise it is next time. 

That has solved the issue previously for casual pants.

 

Thanks for your input.

+1.  When I wore suits at my former job, trousers had 12.5-13.5" rise with single pleat, preferably held by suspenders.  Even my trousers for current business casual wear are in the 13" neighborhood with single pleat.

High rep workouts started today. Good times. 

Lets see how it translates over to results. My arms have been stuck at 15.5 for what feels like forever. Hoping it puts a bit more depth to my back and chest as well.

gf and I are gonna start doing P90X in the mornings before work/school now. She quit her gym so only has a personal training gym but the dumbass keeps cancelling on her and she refuses to go anywhere else, so figured it'd be a good way to support her. Also I'm feeling like a huge fat fuck and doing some cardio will make me feel better even though I'll still be a huge fat fuck.

Confident I'll be able to get my bench up to 240 next week. That means I've put 40 lbs on it since the beginning of December. Considering I've been weighting up 5 lbs and only actually bench once a week that's pretty damn fast. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Can't wait to hit 250 for reps.
