post #52351 of 57263
I have a new shitty gym with no barbells, so my wannabe power lifter regime is out. I do have alot of time though, so I was thinking P/P/L for 5-6 days a week, and add some upper body mass.

Question is how much volume to aim for for each day. Like if you do dumbell bench, shoulder press, and perhaps some incline for push, that ends up at around 90 reps (assuming 3*10). Sounds a lot to me, but perhaps makes sense?

This looks good based on his description, going to go with it, was between this and matrix analysis and applied linear algebra, but that's expensive as fuck. Hoffman and kunze seems a bit more like a real maths textbook.

Is there anything behind only eating the egg whites? I always eat the complete eggs, the good stuff in the yolk seem to outweigh the potential negative effects of the cholesterol (which I heard is now not boooo bad anymore).

Training going great, weight loss plateaued a bit so I have to look at my diet again. I'm over 2kg heavier than in October but already have more definition, looks like my involuntary bulk was working.
You guys are my motivation. No homo. I (want to physically) love you though. Not srs.

Thats a fair amount. On my "upper body party" day I do BB bench, DB shoulder press, close grip DB bench and then wash it down with two tricep accessory moves. Comes to about 5x3x9-12. I superset all that with pull/bicep moves. You would be surprised how much daily work capacity you have.

Down about 18 pounds and 3" in the waist since 3/16. Feels good to be happening as a result of just getting back in the gym and eating better. Calories are still high (for me) on lifting days, getting way more protein than I was most days over the last year, and carbs aren't that low, so I know I'm not just getting supposed results from crash dieting.

If one scoop of protein actually change something in your training/diet/progress, you have to fix something. You're not eating enough.

PS: I take a scoop or two of whey per day but I don't actually think that getting casein, egg or 100% bio-ultimate-grass-fed protein will actually matter in my overall progress.

I don't take protein powder anymore. Not worth the calories.

I tend not to think in terms of reps, because triples at 90% is obv not the same thing as 10's at 60%. 

Imo, its better to count working sets at whatever weight you use.

 

For a given muscle or muscle group, 5 to 20 sets a session should work. Above 20 sets I think you get very diminishing returns.

3 movements working the same muscle groups (as you listed) is a good amount. Would be wise to vary the intensity, reps and amount of sets between them, so you might start with heavy DB press for lowish reps, then shoulder press at moderate reps, and then light flyes for high reps. Finish with a couple sets of triceps if its a press/upper day.

Dude it doesn't matter. Just eat whatever protein you want.

If I had the time to cook more, I would probably ditch them too. And now with cholesterol getting the govt green light, I don't have to limit meat intake like before.

Just bought a coal grill for the house last night. BRB, smoking 10lb of dry rubbed chicken for my weekly meals

? Is your protein powder high in calories?

If your calories are limited and/or prefer the satiety of whole foods, sure.  If taking a standard blend, it is hard to beat the protein:calorie ratio.

I take a ton of protein, like 2-6 scoops/day depending on how much I'm getting in in other sources. But I try to get 225-250g/day now. Is that too much?
post #52365 of 57263
how much do you fart tho?

protein farts mean you're getting more protein than you can digest and it's being eaten by your gut bacteria.

I used to take pride in my noxious protein farts but then i realized it's an indication that i can scale back. Now i get about 80-100g a day.
