    Everyone bulking, what's your diets looking like? I was going to clean bulk but I just eat like a fucking pig nowadays and it's starting to show. I'd like to switch over to a clean bulk but don't want to spend a ton of money doing so.

    I'm doing a bulk with 1000+ maintenance on workout days and 500+ on rest day.

    Been eating pretty clean.

    In the standard rotation:
    - Chicken breast
    - Brown rice
    - Broccoli
    - Spinach
    - Whole wheat pasta
    - Canned tuna in water
    - Minced Beef (20% fat)
    - Greek yoghurt
    - Cottage cheese
    - Black olives
    - Beans
    - Milk
    - Oatmeal
    - additional veggies are red and yellow onions, cucumber, tomatoes and carrots

    Occasionally I go out and eat a burger somewhere and I make casein protein fluff mixed with berries when the ice cream cravings kick in.


    Here's roughly what I eat on workout days (IF style - "breakfast" is around 2 pm and dinner around 9-10 in the evening):

    Random thought:

    In my opinion, I'm still a novice when it comes to the powerlifting/strength game. (Only 500/310/550, 1360 total).

    I used to be the tiniest guy in my gym and still feel like that sometimes.

    So it's strange to see that I'm one of the overall strongest in my gym now and get told how strong I am from people around me.

    I wonder if I'll ever see myself as strong as others see me.

    There is always heavier weight to move, so probably not. Hopefully not.

    You probably shouldn't load the spine if you have pain. AKA, avoid movements that would aggravate it.

    Wearing a belt is a HUGE clutch.

    I know that feeling. My total is significantly less than yours...feels DYEL to me even...yet people at the gym stop and watch in awe while I deadlift.

    By the time I hit any milestone I've set out for myself, it's lost almost all of it's impressiveness. Four years ago, junior year of high school, my goal on bench was 175x10. I got 235x10 a couple weeks ago, and wasn't even particularly excited. Crazy how that works.

    I do, however, have a general feeling that I've attained something - but always more to do.

    Meh I don't even have any goals, I just go to the gym 3 times a week and bust my ass as hard as I can, if I hit my target I weight up. Looking back I can see the insane progress I've made over the past year. Sucks that I'm still so damn small, though.

    I never do ORM's or anything like that, I just record my lifts.

    My goal right now is seriously just to bulk until the end of the year and get as big as possible, no more specific than that.

    Can't wait to be done bulking. Sitting at 205 w/ around 12-14% BF right now. Weight is hard to come by these days though...progression is slow as fuck. Think my metabolism is super ramped right now.

    I have had 0 luck making fluff in my blender. Maybe the lowest setting is still too fast?

    they're both excellent, fyi that solid arch thing on the adistars will make the shoe unwearable if you get even slightly the wrong size.
