    Just got back from the doc. Initial problem was an abdominal strain which lead to diastasis which is why the pain has moved to the middle of my abs. It'll heal up in 6 weeks but It could cause a hernia no more heavy powerlifting/front squats ever :/

    At least now I have motivation to do yoga more than once a week. And I can still bench press so I'll stay swole where it counts.

    It heals on its own. Yoga will help.

    Just nothing with an intense amount of inter-abdominal pressure.

    What do you guys think about this diet? My friend, a skinny 6'3 video game developer, saw the progress I was making and wanted to start working out too. He hired some trainer in LA and got back to him with this diet. I told him it was something that looks like it was written five years ago.

    Percentage macro breakdowns are problematic. How much does "your friend" weigh? BF% est? Activity level and/or TDEE?

    He's a skinny fat unactive game developer. Happens to be tall though so will probably be more jacked than me in a year if he sticks with anything.

    sucks, IIFYM is the way to go. Ezeikel bread, sure its got more nutritional value etc but who cares. Who eats just egg whites? why not just eat 3 whole eggs instead of all the extra whites. Dont see why such a structured diet is needed, why eat the same thing every day. Just calculate a calorie and protein goal, track your food and make sure you hit the goals every day in however many meals and whatever food you want.


    Did some BB rows today with 60kg as no benches were free, felt good definitley a compound movement, core strength etc. Would like to do them instead of DB rows in future but too much lower back work, they are specifically excluded from my current routine for this reason. Tried to do pull ups after and still couldnt manage a set of 5, probably should have done them first.


    There was some skinny guy at the gym benching 70kg with like 1/4 ROM at the most, and a spotter helping. Why lie to yourself, i may have a shit bench but the bar almost touches my chest every rep. The guy later went on the seated calf machine and had 60kg on it which is not that much really, he pulled it up off the support with help from his arms, then couldnt even hold it up with his calfs and the thing kind of collapsed and got stuck at the bottom with his legs under it. It was bizarre.
