    Do you have any sources on this? I was going to pick up Lyle's book on the subject, but anything else you could offer?

    I guess I thought jarude was going to make an argument about protein absorption capacity, which isn't really a valid argument.

    Also, I don't think it's valid to say that "soy isn't as an effective protein" because it does have its place. I wouldn't want to eat a steak pre-workout. ;)

    wtf am i so weak? Ive been doing deadlifts regularly for a couple of months, and did today 3x5 at 120 kg which was heavy. Should I go down in weights, and start from the beginning on some starting strength styled program? or keep at it?

    EC is baller, combined with Lean Gains I'm cruising.

    DC is not baller, it is torture, but I love it. Yesterday, biked to gym, did 2x25x140 leg press calf raises THEN 2x6x580 and 1x20x200 leg press, biked to grocery store, bought 8 lbs of chicken, biked home, could barely walk hahaha. Can't wait to get back on creatine in a few weeks so I don't feel like death, taking coconut water PWO in the mean time.

    Would post prog photos but that's weird here.

    After a few months 120kg isn't bad, i'd say it's quite good. Assuming your not like 120kg yourself, but I don't think you are.



    DC is doggcrap training yeah?

    Yup. Starting a bulk in a few weeks but was too excited to start up DC to wait til then. Might've been a mistake haha, at least it's kicking my ass in the gym and making these last few pounds come off.

    When I start bulking apparently I'm supposed to be taking in 2g P/lb, which is like 300g a day haha that'll be interesting.

    "NB: First of all, I should say that we have been trying for years to help consumers understand that chicken cholesterol and fat are in far higher quantities than most people appreciate. And if it's the feces that finally convince people to stop eating it, that's all to the good. "

    wtf is this

    LOL if people actually realized how much shit, piss, mucus, (and probably semen) from other people and animals entered their body on a daily basis, they'd probably vomit. Hell, if you're in a room with more than a few people, chances are that each breath you take contains non-trivial amount of farts. A little bit of chicken shit doesn't scare me. Then again, I enjoy chitterlings, raw meat and organs, and dishes that use blood.

    Apparently the 3rd ranked 77kg lifter in the USA is going to be competing at the meet in August. Should be neat to see him lift, but going to be humbling to get my ass whooped by someone 20kg less than me.

    :brick: :rotflmao:


    Book says to start light (IIRC empty bar for press, 65 for bench, 90 for squat, 115-135 for DL) and do sets of 5. Add weight in 5-10 lb increments until the bar speed slows down. What you start at isn't really critical, as long as you don't start too high and stall early. Think marathon rather than sprint.
