Yeah, just need to make some room because I'm working on the motorcycle there right now. It's currently missing the entire front end lol.

I'll take it down there since I can get wifi too so it'll be perfect with a fan.

We also have to park in there during the winter due to parking bans. Should be able to fit 2 cars, 2 motorcycles, bicycle/trainer, and our random shit in there pretty easily though.

I started running again. Between that + attempting to cut + going (mostly) vegetarian I'm hoping to slim down to fit into my clothes a bit better. Currently sitting at 172 (down from 174).

Great plan! It's important to avoid muscles' burning instead of fat, so take some anticatabolic supplements such as BCAA aminoacids and L-glutamine :) Especially 'cos you wanna go mostly vegetarian.

Was out of the gym for almost 2 months with zero physical activity and a diet consisting mostly of pretzels, ice cream, with the occasional piece of fruit, greek yogurt, and protein shake. Am fluffy as fuck.

 

Went in and did singles @ 85% in squat, bench, and deadlift. Not much strength loss in those judging by RPE and bar speed. 

 

Attempted back work and couldn't manage 10% of my previous volume. Disaster. 

 

 

My anecdotal experience seems to support the studies on detraining after high intensity, low volume vs low intensity, high volume

Been out of it for a while but raining regularly again now. Feels good.
Form check on these worksets?

Don't see you creating much tension in your lats before the lift, bar is not in optimal position after it leaves the floor as a result and is drifting a little out in front of you which will put you entirely out of position at higher weights. Actively pull the bar tighter into your body using your lats. Also would like to see a more neutral head/neck position.

 

Knees are only a few degrees short of full extension before hip extension begins in earnest. Start flexing your glutes through earlier when the bar is still below knee level. 

 

Good pelvic position at finish.

Going mostly vegetarian myself. So far, so good.

Ha, I use the band method when I teach people to DL. And when did bb.com start having articles that aren't terrible?

You guys going veg does that mean no fish? Where will you get your protons!?? Don't tell me soy
post #55587 of 57260
Soy is the easy option and it's freaking great.

Been eating vegan for 3 months now except for mussells and oysters.

It is really quite easy. Protein isn't a concern.

It's really easy. B12 supplement obviously but I'm pretty lazy and it's still really easy to meet macro/micro needs. Tofu is essentially the same as meat, macro wise.

Easy shit that I cook when I'm lazy (i.e. every day):
- stir fry veggies with tofu (firm). Sweet chili sauce or soy sauce or whatever sauce you want. I use couscous when I'm lazy cos it's literally just boiling the jug, but rice isn't exactly difficult either. Can make the whole thing in 3 mins.
- any mexican-ish bean recipe.
- spagetti bolognese but with mussells instead of mince. can of tomatoes, italian herbs, mussells, pasta. couldn't be easier.
- falafel kebabs (pre-made falafel mix, you should be able to get it at the supermarket)
- chickpea, bean, lentil or a combination of all curry - use canned beans/chickpeas/lentils cos they don't need to be cooked for long and are ready in 5 mins. Google indian recipes,
- hummus on toast. All day, every day. Store bought even though making it is super, super easy.
- peanut butter on toast. All day, every day.
- soup - leftover veggies, silken tofu, beans, soup mix/whatever's left in the pantry

Stuff that's always in my fridge/freezer:
- tofu
- peas and mixed veggies
- fresh fruit and veggies
- soy milk for cereal
- frozen berries for putting with my oats for breakfast

stuff that's always in my pantry:
- canned beans, chickpeas, lentils
- couscous, brown rice, wholegrain pasta
- quinoa etc when i'm feeling fancy
- oats for breakfast
