    Agreed on the bb curls vs. preacher curls. Whenever I do preacher curls, the apparatus forces me to pitch my shoulders forward which is not comfortable and doesnt seem right. Been doing heavy bb curls, and when weight starts to feel too heavy to go all the way down to 90 degrees and back up, I slow go down to 45 degrees, hold and come back up.

    BB curls build dem biceps like no other. The best routine I've found for biceps so far is to do barbell curls, then reverse curls, and then hammer curls. Your biceps and forearms get shredded this way. I've gotten some notable bicep improvements and HUGE forearm development this way.

    Finally switching to bulking diet, just tracking cals and protein from now on. Keeping with IF though a really lazy version (just eating 12-8, no calorie/carb cycling or anything). Need to get 2500 cals, and I'm seriously going to have trouble eating it haha. I've been on a low cal for too long. Starting off with a double quarter cheese and large fries from mcd's: 1130 cals, 52g protein. After tacos tonight that's only like 1800 cals, maybe I'll throw a shake in too or something. I need to get to the grocery store and figure this out haha.

    BTW did anyone see that North Korean dude clean and jerk 3xBW? I missed it and I've been looking for a video, can't find it on the Olympics site and all the youtube vids are just photos. Fucking unreal, though, he's like only the third person to do it.

    I do bb curls then reverse curls too, love that forearm burn and how crazy your forearm feels afterwards

    I actually misread his post and thought it was the gym owners telling him to not do this.

    I agree. I find his sanctimonious "my way is the only way" attitude to be too much. Also his blatant condescension toward anybody living a lifestyle he disagrees with - such as vegetarians.

    I calc'd out my maintenance to be ~2200, so I'm starting at 2500 (800-900 more than what I'm at now) for lean bulking. Though my maintenance is probably 2500-2700, so I'll likely have to up it in a few weeks to ~3000, we'll see how it goes. I'm going to be consuming a ton of protein. After a week or two I might start cal cycling.

    I guess "told" the a better word in this situation.

    Feeling bloated 24/7 from all this food.
