Random health and exercise thoughts - Page 3781
My clothes started to get tight so i'm back on a cut. Started at 176, hoping to get down around to 165. Making these protein bars that are relatively tasteless but not bad at all. Since vegetable cookery isn't super calorie intensive so no worries there. The only thing that's being a real challenge is keeping the drinking down--my girlfriend and I are getting into wine and so a couple glasses is 250 calories I have to shave off somewhere else.

I love sauerkraut. I keep a jar on my kitchen counter and have a few forkfuls at random throughout the day. I don't actually eat it with anything. I'm not clear if the jars you get in grocery stores are probiotic, but it seems like an easy way to get a bit of fiber throughout your day.
Strangely enough it's started to make me sneeze right after I eat it.
I'm going to snoop around. Maybe buy some new Pumas or a pair of lifting gloves since mine are coming apart.
@Cool The Kid Definitely normal and you pretty much answered it already, it's cause of the increased hip extention (plus how you squat, width, quad dominance). Changing from FS to BS probably also contributed to it.
Browsing through my YT subscriptions I see Charly hit a 1900 total at his last meet @ 242
JFC man 780lb squat WTF bro. He put like 400 on his total in a year
He hit 1850lb total to qualify for RUM a year ago in the 220s, he had an illness that set him back, so he's gained weight and moved up to the 242s and just hit that 1900lb total. Don't call it a comeback...
Pretty happy with lifting now.
Cut down to 190 and been maintaining that quite comfortably at ~10% bf for a while. Clothes fit and I have enough energy to train with decent volume and intensity. Current plan is to not get much bigger, besides adding some mass on specific areas. Biceps have finally started to grow since I began training them every session.
Knees did not hurt during training today for the first time in several months. Had noticed that my quads and glutes were stiffer than they used to be, so I stretched and foam rolled before training. Squats went better, not just pain wise but also in terms of strength and technique. Hoping the trend continues.
