... Still eat the beans/legumes because they're freaking great, just not every meal like I was. Ease into them. Also drain and rinse them first as this gets rid of the oligosaccharides which you probably can't tolerate a lot of yet.
.
I've started soaking my beans overnight for about 8 hours, then drain and rinse before cooking all day in the crock pot. Much better outcome on all ends.

Lol

What are you guys' experiences with how clothes fit after a couple cut/bulks?  Let's say you end up around the same weight, but go from 20% to 10%bf.  Same size?  

 

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
My coach has been emphasizing the fuck out of extra back accessory work, and as a result I'm creeping into  L/XL in some outerwear because of armhole/pit mobility issues which is super weird to me, trying to pick the right size for a few months from now

I get less soy protein and eat a lot of seitan.

http://www.theppk.com/2009/11/homemade-seitan/ but cover and bake 45 min at 350* and then simmer/store in the broth 45 minutes to infuse flavor. Pat dry, season and brown and put in tacos/sandwiches/wraps etc

The one downside is that it doesn't reheat great and can get slightly spungy. Macros are great though:

Amount Per 100 grams
Calories 370
% Daily Value*
Total Fat 1.9 g
Total Carbohydrate 14 g
Protein 75 g

At this point I'm just making grain bowls for my lunches and a few of my dinners. Cook up some rice/quinoa/farro/couscous/polenta in the rice cooker, throw in some seitan. Then experiment with different vegetables/legumes etc. This week the gf and i made bok choi, roasted butternut squash, sauteed swiss chard and sauteed mushrooms.

Bike is set up in the cold ass garage. It's actually not bad and I can do it anytime. If I feel like doing cardio at 2AM I can do it without pissing anyone off. It's the perfect 20-40 minute study break.

 

Trying to get back into the lifting groove a bit before I start going to the powerlifting place across town. I'm super amped for that. I feel like I'm going to have a better/more productive handle on my schedule this term onwards so I'm stoked to see some results. Not trying to get huge again, but it'll be nice to fill my clothes up like I used to and have some back/peck/bi definition.

 

Legs will probably still be a bit of a struggle, but some goblet squats, split squats, lunges, along with some machine work, PLUS doing a bit of bike work should keep things decent. I might see if my body will let me do light hack squats at the PL gym. That would be so awesome. I think I'll be able to work up to it if I work the shit out of my core.

Thanks man. I'm trying to stay in shape through med school. It's only going to get harder from here and if I don't learn to prioritize etc right now then I might as well give up.

Being organized is key. Schedule as much as possible... and then try to stay on path. If you have a work out frame don't skip it to do anything else.... there will always be temptations along the way but once you adjust to your new daily/weekly routine everything becomes easier. I did do that when I was in Law School and it worked very well for me. But everyone thought I was always "too busy" but if I wanted to do all the things I wanted to do, I had to be very well organized. And I did as much as I could (had good grades, worked out, competed in sports, party time, etc...) maybe not everything every week but I managed very well and didn't miss any big "events" nor did I skip being physically active.

Of course, it is not easy... I am positively sure is much harder on your mind than on your body. Even though you feel exhausted some days, I felt like it was more mental than physical. But I gave myself a long break every couple of months or so... just to rest both mind and body.

 

Sorry for the huge post but I guess I felt like I identified with you reading your post.

Got the results from the MRI a week ago.

 

My knees look normal. No damage to the meniscus or cartilage. I suppose I've had a stubborn inflammation. Its better now after a month of less training, but the aches are not completely gone (if they will ever fully disappear). I also have some tight spots in the side of the hip and IT-band that might be related.

 

As for my low back I have damage in the area between the lowest disc and the pelvis. Signs of slipped disc but not severe enough for surgery. I've been prescribed lower weights and rehab.

 

Atm I'm not really sure what I'm gonna do with my training. Once you've had damage to the discs it sort of "sits" there, as far as I know, and I don't want to risk long term health. At least I can't do powerlifting for a while (heavy deads and benching seems to provoke the aching). I'll continue with the strength training, but it'll be lighter and less for a while now.

Sorry for the bad news man. At least the knees aren't damaged!
post #55620 of 57266
That sucks

Yeah do not fuck with your back, that is a lifetime of disability and pain you are risking I would give away squatting and deadlifting completely to be honest

Some people do not have the phenotype to lift heavy weights (including me) long term
