sous vide is god tier kitchen gadget. I use it all the time and everything comes out awesome.

In 5 years it'll be the equivalent of a microwave.

Fuark. OK so now I'm up to like $900 worth of stuff to buy (still need a blender). Damn those look good. How many lbs of chicken can I cook in one batch?
post #54546 of 57265
the precision can handle up to 5 gallons of water. Idk how much food that holds but you'll probably be fine for just yourself

Yeah veggies go through me like nothing, I'd be hungry in 30 mins after eating that many carrots if I hadn't killed myself beforehand for having such a miserable diet.

I'm finally in the 170's! 179. Finally moving again. Lost 7 lbs of water weight over the past couple days. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

19 lbs to go haha.

Should I start EC at the 15 or 10 lb mark? Wanted to hit YC when I get down there to help with lower belly fat, too, which would probably be the last 5-7 lbs.

Well, I only ate 4 eggs for breakfast today, in a tsp. of butter. Progress!

Also, I am back on the every day squats. Feel free to quote this post and call me a dumbass should I ever do something stupid and hurt myself again.

Cool. Do you have any recs for a particular model or price range to stay in? Do you have the 179 Anova one quoted there?
post #54549 of 57265

Do some different variations this time around, not only your main style. Changing up the lifts is a main component in many high frequency programs to avoid muscle imbalances and over-use problems to creep up (that was your problem last time around, no?). Pick variations that strengthen your weaknesses.

I also need to actually find a not-terrible SSB first, so it's just front squats for now.

FWIW, I had/still have a minor medial collateral tear, tendinitis and tendinosis. I think I popped something while barbell rowing the first day I started squatting daily - that pop could've been the ligament tear, and then overuse in a compromised state on top of that just made it worse and caused the tendinitis and subsequent tendinosis. My sports doc + physiotherapist have assured me that as long as I'm not doing anything abusively heavy or doing aggressive daily direct loading (walking around doing bicep curls all day), then I'm not causing any further damage. I just train with one of those Slingshot elbow bands on and stay away from anything heavy and I seem to be doing okay thus far.

Squatting every day is just too damn fun. I'm reading "Squat Every Day" by Perryman again and it just really makes you question the whole idea of supercompensation and what fatigue/overtraining really mean.
post #54552 of 57265

Is push/pull/legs really a good split? I'm worried that going from squatting and benching 3x a week to 1x is going backwards. Though I focus on each area more than with traditional stronglift + accessory work.

post #54553 of 57265
If you run it 4-5 times a week yeah. Bodybuilding isn't like Powerlifitng periodization. I've put on a lot of good mass using it.
post #54554 of 57265

I've no hard goals except getting stronger while preferably remaining the same size in clothes. What kind of 3 split can I do besides starting strength or stronglift?

post #54555 of 57265
5/3/1 and don't eat too much.
