Just by cutting out drinking and most carbs, i'm down from 213 to 204 in two weeks. Gotta get back on the lifting train or else i'm just going to end up skinny fat.

I have it from bad posture, have to constantly remind myself to push my shoulders straight back, which is also a good cue for starting bench press position. Getting a good computer chair helps a ton. Something my physical therapist told me was to roll up a small towel and place it in between your lower back and the chair to keep from slouching.

It's something you have to do constantly and actively. A lot of cumulative volume. Band pulls and crucifixes x 200 daily. If you have access to rings, working on some basic things like l-sits and levers are really helpful as gymnastics moves put your shoulders/lats/traps/back through more sever range of motion.

 

Are crucifixes and band pulls these?

I'm looking for a set routine I can do everyday, How long does it usually take to notice some effect? Weeks/months?

Band pulls yes, I have no idea what those "crucifixes" are. The ones I'm referring to are just a variation of face pulls where you essentially do the reverse movement of a bent arms/45° pec deck.

I did a deload, came back, and had crazy DOMS in my legs and quads. I didn't do shit over the deload. I don't have time to stretch all the time but would stretching over my deloads help with that DOMS? I am over it now but it was rough for like 2-3 days.

I think what's causing the DOMS is the increase in volume and load you get when coming back from a deload. So, changing something during the deload period will likely not help. Rather, I would put my efforts to right when you come back to normal training. 

 

IME, stretching does not help that much with DOMS, and I used to stretch a lot. Soft tissue work like foam rolling and working out trigger points have some effect. Most effective is however to get blood flowing to the muscles. Move around as much as you can, do some light cardio or even another light strength session. When I did high frequency full body I pretty much never had DOMS.

What's everyones opinion on eating red meat few days at a time? I really don't like chicken, meal prepping skirt steak fajitas for the next few days.

Also, what do you guys use for milk substitutes in smoothies? Almond, coconut, or is sticking with regular milk okay if you have room for the carbs?

I still lift on deloads. Just light, sub maximal. 2-3 sessions during a deload week. You'll still recover (arguably better) and won't get wrecked when you come back.

80x8 on both 1 arm db row and db bench yesterday. Heaviest I've seen since last april/may.

 

Looks like things are starting to come together nicely. Just gotta keep at it!

I somehow lost weight in NOLA. Portion control and lots of walking i guess.

Are you asking from a health perspective? If so, the answer is that you should try to reduce or at best eliminate red meat from your diet.

I use soy milk but find what works for you.

Talking only from a health perspective, yes. Why the need to reduce or eliminate completely?

4 months after knee surgery hit 95lbs on squat for 3x12. Feel halfway human again. Stay safe RHET

it is probably a mild carcinogen, although the data isn't quite strong enough to show definitive causation yet. Not as dangerous as smoking or anything and small amounts probably aren't going to kill you, but it's not something to consume frequently if you want to make a conscious health decision.

Hit 70x6 on seated DB military press yesterday. Was going for 8, but I'll take it. Progress is progress.
