But is it sponge-worthy?

I'll belt up if I'm telling over 315. Although I'm doing 8-12 rep sets now s I haven't used my belt in forever. Thinking of selling that and my oly shoes.

I've bought PES Select Snickerdoodle to give it a try, even though my diet doesn't require protein shakes that often lately. Unfortunately the cheapest vendor I found who carries it in Germany is basically 50 € für the 55 serving one. The pain, oh the pain. I've gone over to putting 5 - 10g of baking cocoa powder into my protein shakes to mask those way too sweet ON Gold Standard flavors.

Also, I've got a leather jacket. Life quality already improved hahaha
I'm a bit on a shopping spree lately. New shoes, new jacket, bunch of cheap ass clothes from H&M / Zara, a lot of new gym clothes, etc.

Never used a belt, but I've only been advised against them. What is the advantage?

Used correctly, can add rigidity to your core, allowing you to lift a little more weight in the squat and DL.

Besides allowing you to lift more weight, belts basically makes it easier to keep a normal curvature in the spine if used correctly. That way they can protect you from back injuries. 

They have also been shown to increase the activation of the ab muscles, contrary to what many people intuitively believe.

Yea, and glutes quads and hamstrings. I just feel like a dork belting up for anything below 315, so I leave it at home.

I need to film my front squats and post them up here. I don't know why they feel so hard.

They work your core way more so there's that and the fact that your posterior chain is stronger (gluts/hammies are big dawg) so your FS will always be lower than BS. They blast your quads like nothing else tho.

Any advice for suits? I need one for interviews. Just looking for standard wool and dont want to pay out the arse because i'll never wear it and when I do it wont fit because my weight fluctuates a lot. Will have to hit up a big name store or either buy online.

H&M?
post #52888 of 57259

No. How much are you willing to spend, and how much time do you have before interview?

 

If you have time before interviews, look up Kent Wang. MTM, and range is usually 800-1000. very nice for the price point.

I was putzing around Target this weekend and saw some OK looking suit separates from one of their house brands. I almost never need to wear a suit or anything formal, so I'm probably going to get them in both grey and navy at some point, since they were like $90 for the full suit. They'd need some tweaks, but for $90, they felt and looked decent off the rack and that's all I really care about when it comes to formal wear.

Saks is doing their BOGO sale on suits on top of the 78% off. Take a look.
