Eat as much lean red meat as you want.

Life. It'll fackin' kill ya.

Well yeah, but he asked a simple question and I gave a simple answer. If he asked "what's the relative risk of wearing a seatbelt compared to the effort taken multiplied by the CBF-ness" then the answer becomes more complex.

or your choice of driving strategy

The negative effect for red meat is probable but minor. the beneficial effect for vegetables and fruit is also probable but less minor. imo as long as you consume both you're fine.

Fell down stairs in my house and busted my coccyx! Deads and squats are off the agenda. frown.gif Sitting is pretty much off the agenda!

Fell down a flight of stairs 5 years ago. I had to go to a physio, who had me do tiger stretches, where she pushed my pelvic down, it hurt like hell, but it worked.

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.
I think I will do cardio. I was just so burnt out I didn't want to do anything. But I my next one will be planned so hopefully I won't be nuked. Seems like every 6-8 weeks or so I get sick or just get burnt in the gym.

Yeah, I've been struggling to cut for a really really long time now because it's tough to do that and maintain a social life in b-school (i.e. drink constantly). I've been trying to set up activities that are non-drinking and active. Been going rock climbing a lot for example, playing board games, etc.

Was down to 167 today, which is awesome. I've learned that if I have more than one beer I just can't control my drinking or eating to an acceptable level and I just have to accept that as a reality for now instead of thinking I can handle it. So I'm going to try to limit drinking to once a week, maybe less, and stick to diet/workout hardcore outside of that.

7 more lbs to lose until I hit my original goal but I'll probably have another 10 lbs to go before I'm at where I really want to be. Maybe more. Shitty but this time I've got it.

Doing PHAT so lifting 5x/wk, and then trying to stay active outside of that. Lowering cals to 1800 helped a lot, with 150g daily protein goal.

I need to hit RHET up more often for motivation.

Strange pain today in my right shoulder. I did not even lift today.

It's somewhere in between the muscle on the side of my shoulder, and on the front. I'm going to hold off on shoulder day for a while. Shoulders kind of seem like knees in the sense that when they are injured, it takes a very long time to get over it.

Sounds like it might be impingement.

Just got myofascial release massage on my calves.

Felt like someone stuck a pole right through the leg.

 

The guy said it was like massaging a rock and that the muscles were basically shut off due to all kinds off lumps.

Is there any benefit to doing it for the shorter term? I.e. doing it for 12 or so hours instead of 16? I could probably go without eating from 10 pm till like 10-12 the next day depending on the day. Always variable etc, but I could keep the time constant. Guessing even light snacks are off limits? 100 calorie bars etc?


I don't want to reduce workout hours too much due to sanity.

It worked for me during Ramadan
