post #53161 of 57265

Two weeks out from meet so testing the lifts this week.

Worked up to a heavy deadlift today and managed to get 400, 25 pounds over my previous PR from the meet back in January.

Felt pretty good to finally get 4 plates.

I just do the whey isolates... Ive done both mixing methods, can't recall a difference. On a $/gram basis TN is a good ~10% cheaper than stuff like ON etc. Why the hesitation?

I don't know. I talked with a colleague who'd done the GMAT and it seemed nicer. They're both crap, but at least with the GRE I got some faggy high school dropout giving the test who consistently poked me in the dick with the metal detector wand.

GRE is a glorified SAT with college grad level vocab... basically it's a joke. GMAT is definitely more difficult and regardless of your mathematical abilities you need to learn how to do the math in the context of the test (which means mostly in your head and using lots of shortcuts.) LSAT is much more difficult than both those two combined.

Has anyone noticed real benefits from timing your carbohydrate intake? i.e., consuming most of your carbs in the morning and pre/post workout. There are varying schools of thought on this - some people say that carb timing is completely irrelevant, others swear by it. In the past I have never worried about timing, not because I was convinced it didn't matter, but mostly because I wanted to carbs whenever I felt like it.

Supposedly, if you're of the traditional/old school mindset, when carbohydrates are consumed can significantly affect fat loss and fat gain.

@conceptionist, you made those squats look easy. Also, that bench form, makes me hurt just looking at it. I know why you're doing it but dang.

Wonder where that puts the MCAT.

Not really sure why I'm looking at masters programs, if I get a FT offer out of my internship this summer I'll just go to them instead. Buy side at a fairly huge fund straight from undergrad would be nice. If not I'm looking at LSE Msc finance, Lse Msc finance and economics, Imperial Msc finance, Imperial Msc Risk and Financial Engineering or Oxford Msc financial economics. Imperial Risk and Financial Engineering is quant as fuck, but Oxford is more prestigious.

The GMAT at the 700+ level doesn't really test you on grammar or math, it basically at that level is testing you on how well you can take the GMAT. There are absurd tricks and rules that the GMAT has that you need to remember and apply if you want to get a solid score. A lot of the higher level reasoning questions, for example, have a choice that sounds correct but based on the laws of the GMAT another one is the better choice. It's absurd. So you have to study your ass off to remember all these things, take the test, then forget them all.

There are quite a few studies that have shown that you store less body fat by eating your carbs in the evening, post workout.

That said, it will only affect your body composition marginally. Your daily activity level and how many calories you eat will be much more important.

No argument there - my question was geared toward a hypothetical where the same person would be eating the same macros, with the only difference being the timing of their carbs.

Almost impossible to determine what the difference would be. Would need an extremely controlled study.

 

The thing is, that the difference you get from carb timing or any other super-detailed diet manipulation (if they even have any benefits) would most likely be offset if you just sat on your ass by the computer for two hours longer.

Every single piece of sushi or sashimi I look up are all over the place for calories. What do I do? Thinking about just getting the beet salad.

Just eat the raw fish ones with rice man. Stay away from the ones heavy on mayo like @GraphicNovelty was saying.
