Also extremely capital intensive as you've said. We've been lucky to not have to sink too much capital in but are on the cusp of several prospective projects that would require another $1-2mm capex, but they're huge so ROI would be pretty significant.

Looking at some smaller machine shops as add on acquisitions ($1-2mm EBITDA range) and would be fun to buy but that's a lot of equity.

Winning contracts is actually too easy for us right now. We are a combination machine shop/grind house and we currently have open orders into next year. We have literally been turning work down daily.

This city talk is making me feel even worse about Worcester.

@Coldsnap try EC and combine with synephrine if appetite suppression is not enough on EC alone

Living in a cultural wasteland has some upsides, outside of SF I probably would have never heard of the term "dadbod" and would be happier for it. Speaking of fads, crossfit seems to have taken over here. I've never gone, but looks lame and the participants seem obnoxious. Should I give it the old high school drop out try?

I'm softening in my old age in that whatever means gets people physically active is fine by me. Crossfit seems like a trend, but it also seems to offer an easy access point to gym life for a lot of people, so whatever.

So it's for people trying to get into shape and not experienced gym goers?

Experienced gym goers can probably motivate themselves to do the workout without the group and design their programming to hit the goals that various crossfit classes are into. That being said it's pretty social and not really bullshit. There are some horror stories of terrible gyms that don't bother teaching their members good form for fairly technical lifts and this result in lots of injuries.

I don't post much, but I've been lurking. I am back up to about 170 from 154 at my last fight/weigh in. I did a super clean bulk and am pretty happy with the amount of muscle vs fat gained. I had to reset my lifts big time because I didn't lift at all the last couple months before my fights so they dropped quite a bit. I think the reset did me good though. I focused on form and fixed a couple issues I had. My lifts are back up to where they were when I was about 190 at 170, so I'm pleased with that (except bench didn't recover like squats and deads).

I switched up my program to Sheiko this week. I was running a Bill Starr 5x5 variation I found online, but it was a linear progression that I couldn't keep up with anymore.

The old program was a full body style, so I'm used to squatting 3 days a week and stuff, but this added volume will take some getting used to. I like it so far though. I'm running the 3 day split for lifters over 80 kg per conceptionist and other peoples advice so I get used to the volume.

Before/after pics?

Here are my before pics.... about 154 lbs

.



I'll try to take some now later today once I'm home. I've been trying to keep the bulk pretty clean. I had to go to carb cycling and stuff during the end of my last cut as my body fat levels got real low, so adding the carbs back in has really helped my energy levels. I think I would up the carbs and cut more water weight next time.

Looking absurdly dry and shredded there like 7-8%

What rate were you gaining at during the bulk Lb/week?
post #53563 of 57256
Yeah, that was the end of my cut the morning of weigh-ins. I was only gaining about 0.5 lbs a week with some complete sloppy weeks with the holidays, China trip, etc... I know this goes against the studies or whatever, but I feel best at about 200-220 g protien a day and I've been trying to eat as many carbs as possible after I get my protein in. I feel ok with lower fat as long as I take some fish oil every day. Overall I'm happy with the progress.

That's what burning a fuck load of calories a day will do for you on a bulk
