    Not sure if deadlifts on leg day was a good idea. 3 weeks off from gym has cost me a fair bit of strength could only manage 3 plate DL for 3 reps previously could get 150kg for 3, i have lost about 4-5lbs though. Followed them with 5 sets of leg press 10-15 reps, leg curls and extension, could barely walk out of the gym and it was a struggle to not throw up. Don't think drinking 500ml of rubicon intra workout helps with that though.

    For those that have cut before, roughly how long would it take to cut 20lbs with minimal LBM losses? Im maybe 18% BF although i have no idea really. I may be less fat but it just looks worse due to narrow frame and distribution. I think trying to bulk much further is just a bad idea and i could use the time to improve conditioning.

    Cutting with minimal losses is limited to at most two pounds/week. 1.5/week is a better bet

    good work, i dont know why you always get so frantic and negative about your training itt.


    hope you crushed the szechuan chicken, orange beef and lemon chicken. there's definitely a strategy to chinese buffets, gotta start with full meat plates and only go to carbs/greens when you can't possibly take another msg/sodium assault. after that, back to the meat plates. 4:1 ratio at least. t minus 45 mins for me; i got my eatin' pants on (0)

    Sadly, it doesn't really work for me with my current situation. I'm currently over 220, so deficit is probably a good 400 calories or so. I'm at 3 meals a day now. Here's the current breakdown: 30.55%-Carb 26.91%-Fat 38.36%-Pro

    Just got blood work back with very low T levels. Been working with John for a few months, his recommendation is HRT. Wondering if anyone here has any experience with that or combating low T in general. Would also welcome any links/studies as I'm trying to read up on it as much as possible. Seems like the DIY remedies won't help, already lift/eat well/etc. Thanks

    I've had Chinese a few times in the last couple months, but it's been since summer that I hit up the buffet. Thinking about going solo; last two times with people have been a bust. I went with my gf and she ate like one plate. I met up with a buddy at one a couple months after that, but he didn't eat anything because he had eaten already (even though we had planned in advance to eat at the buffet, wtf). So I've felt I had to show some restraint that just have no business appearing in a Chinese buffet.

    Shit, now I'm kicking around hitting up the buffet since I've got nothing to do until tonight. Plenty of time to let that itis dissipate.

    You mean westernized indians. The ones with true Indian behavior are uh... better left untouched.

    i've noticed that since I'm heavier that taller girls seem more chatty with me. The must have some equation on height x weight = yes/no

    I have to thank the majority of dudes for lacking steeze and being unaesthetic. Women have to try pretty hard to set themselves apart but I feel like its easier for rhet dudes.


    Do it. Just finished 7 plates and I want to die but I'm going to have the best nap of life soon. A good feel

    Since spraining my wrist, workouts have just been two squat sessions per week, because I can't really do much else. Aside from strength, going heavy each time with plenty of recovery is doing wonders for flexibility and form-- deeper, faster, more stable. Going to try empty bar snatches and C&J next week sometime and see how the wrist holds up. Would be nice to do competition in April, but that may be rather ambitious.


    Back when I was single, the #1 goal on my Fuck-it List was a deaf girl. Being in DC, we have Gallaudet University which has plenty of attractive deaf girls, but I was never successful. Sigh.... I always wondered what kind of noises they'd make during sex.

    Want a new routine...some sort of aesthetics based hypertrophy shit. Someone link me up. I think earlier someone suggested IA SPBR? Is this a good plan?
