    O yea, recovery is a whole different bag. Def gotta experiment with that. But even with volume, there comes a point where either your body gets stressed out and gains cease, or you start feeling pain from overloading your joints. I was hitting upper body 3x/week for a little bit and hit that point. My sweet spot is 2x/week. I think 1x/week is bullshit

    My weight's been hovering around 188-190 for a while, and I can still see my abs/serratus a bit. My lifts are still going up but not as easily as before, I think I need to eat more.

    Started going to McD's for lunch every day because it's cheap and calorie dense, plus I can study there on my lunch break. But shit I really have to put together a diet.

    Are you guys just tracking cals or do you plan your diet every week, go shopping for it, etc.? Diet is such a fucking weak point for me, I just can't get into the habit of measuring every single thing ugh

    I still don't get why you guys eat fast food when you're taking the time to hit the gym consistently and already tracking what you eat and everything. Then again I'm not going for pure size like most of you.

    I was having trouble with eating enough too, since I don't really eat chips/candy and cook just about all of my own food. I found that cooking a huge meal with sausage and butter at the beginning of the week makes it easier, and having toast + peanut butter (~250 cals), or an emergency can of baked beans / box of annie's (~750 cals) towards the end of the night if you're coming up short helps a lot.

    Last night I ate a large pizza. All of it, the whole thing. This morning I hit a deadlift PR. Thank you blessed pizza gods.

    I went to hungry howies last night and at 2,300 calories. Was pretty delicious. I do eat chicken and broccoli like 90% of my meals though.

    Because you can eat a 80g protein meal at Wendsy for $8 and all the fat makes my joints feel awesome.

    If I would have the metabolism to support it, I'd eat over 4000 calories every day.

    Currently doing about 300g uncooked rice with 300-400g meat and veggies post workout, followed up with another 200g uncooked rice and 60-70g of protein after about two hours. That's about 3200 calories in 3 hours or so. I only eat one small meal pre-workout during the day which may make me hungrier at night, but the last time I tried working out earlier in the day and thus having a more "normal" eating period (consisting of 3 equally big meals over 9 hours or so) I went to bed hungry. That was with the same calories as I do now, roughly 3700-3800 calories.

    Fast food is the king of all PR foods.

    Met the assistant program director for the residency I'm applying to. He's prob 6'2", around 260 10% bf black dude with a handshake that almost crushed me. Super nice guy. Interviewing with him next week. When he asks "any questions for me?" at the end of the interview I'm going to ask for his shoulder routine.

    Also had a patient today with 685 DL.

    The fucking barbell at the gym has disappeared. Somebody said it's being repaired but the staff don't know anything about it and refuses to take any responsibility. I've pushed them really hard to get a new one, so maybe it'll be back sometime next week.

    Tomorrow's squat day. What would be the best substitute for heavy squats? Leg press? Lightweight 20 rep squat sets with the smaller and thinner barbell that you normally use for curls and stuff? Theres only plates for it up to about 160 pounds.

    It's the gym on campus. Thinking about it, I don't think I've mentioned that I'm studying in HK this term. But yeah, it's a poverty gym. The only good or fun thing about it is looking at all the clueless Asians trying to lift weights. I've seen so much random shit at that gym, like super skinny guys deadlifting the EZ-bar loaded with a whopping 20 pounds and then flexing their stick-arms between sets. Some annoying shit as well. I've had guys walking right into the bar path while maxing out on squats [​IMG]

    Well, I forgot about you too, ha. Loads of mid terms now but we could meet up after that. Still a bit clueless about good eats and where to go out, besides some restaurants around TST and the clubs in LKF. Would be cool if you could show some places.

    Took a yoga class today because I wanted to get my hips more open for squats. Yogi approached me after the class and asked how long I've been doing yoga for and she was very surprised to see someone as "muscle bound" as me and flexible, also said I was advance enough to take any level class at the studio .Pretty stoked to hear that because I've done zero static stretching or yoga in about 10 months and gone 100% in the direction of Eric Cressey and K* stuff.


    That 1 barbell thing cracks me up.
