Has anybody got a link to a good hypertrophy program?
At least 4 days of lifting/week and hit each muscle twice. I feel like trying something new and my initial searches don't show anything like that that looks decent. Thanks

Make your own routine emphasizing your weaknesses

I always make my own programs, I just feel like following an established program for a while as a change of pace.

any advice for running posture? I try to land on my toes, keep my chin down, anything else?

Had a pretty solid workout Sunday night. Got 4x10 with 70s for seated military press and did a bunch of other stuff too. Was nice to get a good workout in since yesterday was a shitshow and I'm going to be swamped today. Might try to get a run in or do some pushups and core work this evening, but unlikely. Should be back at it tomorrow.

Good times. Things are still on track though. Looking forward to how things are when i hit 27 and when we get closer to summer. I think things are still solidly on track for may.

RHET, I need your help getting back on the horse. I've lost 35 lbs from 212-176 this fall/winter with diet adjustments alone. I'm still fluffy (probably 20% BF) and out of shape.

I need an exercise program that I can scale, and that will work in any random gym. (i.e., not a squat/deadlift heavy program.) I get the whole squatz and oatz thing. I got myself up to 3-plate squat worksets around a year ago, but I travel too much and my schedule is too inconsistent to run a legit barbell routine, so I basically just quit instead of trying to find a workout program that made more sense. (i.e. not spending 1 1/2-2 hours in the gym)

Eventually want to run a serious barbell program again, but that's going to have to wait until I don't have to travel as much.

Just do full body or half body workouts 4x a week with whatever equipment is available, whether it's free weights or machines.

An easy and intuitive way is to do a motion followed by its counter motion e.g. Bench then rows, leg press then hamstring curl, pullups then military press etc. Sub in or out machines when you need to, it shouldn't matter too much.

You won't make as much progress as with a strictly set out plan but it's good enough and you cover all your bases of you don't know when you'll get to next workout.

What's a good whey protein that is not too sweet tasting? I've used EAS chocolate, but it's too sweet for me these days.

Traveling is always difficult. If you want any sort of consistency I think you are going to have to get a few bands and learn how to work out with those. In addition to that, make your own protein bars, always pack a big bottle of fiber supplements(I never get enough fiber when I travel), and study up on what the healthiest thing you can order on any fast food menu.

People shy away from bands, but hotel gyms are too inconsistent to plan for.

True nutrition. Half flavor.

Penne with quail eggs, potato and green beens in pesto



Vegetarian ramen

I've also been cooking a lot from ottolenghi's new book Nopi. I have access to a crazy spice store in NYC (Kalustyan's) so i've been able to source all these fun exotic ingredients.




Burrata and blood orange with lavender honey and coriander seeds



Celery root hummus with spiced cauliflower topped with quail egg



Eggplant with black garlic pure, pine nuts and basil

those look very nice

That's some good looking food man! Slap some sliced sirloin on and you're golden!
@Reggs, can you access unflavoured whey? I get BBWarehouse 80% in the UK and either make it up with coconut water or a half cup of brewed coffee and a dash of maple syrup. Both taste great and no nasties!
