    I've only ever seen that constant pain (and the inflammatory bloat) in hamstrings and knee extensors of endurance athletes, but I guess it's possible for any muscle. [​IMG]

    Try press-ups.

    If I ate like this I would bonk a few minutes into my workout. Do you have a pre workout meal with carbs or anything?

    i deduct grams of soluble fiber.

    here is what most days look like:

    5 eggs, 2 slices bacon, 1/4 cup blueberries

    isopure shake with half&half and water

    2 chicken breasts with walnuts and spinach salad

    isopure shake with h&h, water

    6 oz fish, broccoli, a handful of cashews

    isopure again

    8-10 oz. steak with spinach salad

    lots of water, green and black tea and coffee

    i may lay off on the chins and push ups everyday as i am sure my chest/back training provides adequate stimulus.

    How much of each ingredient are you using in your PWO shakes? Do you subscribe to the 2:1 carb[​IMG]rotein ratio I mentioned earlier? I know the consensus is that PWO is when your body will actually benefit from sugar, which is why I've always used a 2:1 Gatorade powder/whey mix for mine.

    When doing mixed grip deadlifts, should I alternate over/under to under/over each set or just stick with the most comfortable way?

    Alternating is probably the best idea, at least with the easier sets. Mixed grip puts torque on the spine.

    I tried to hit the gym twice in one day. Legs in the morning, chest/back in the evening. I'm not ready.
