    as long as you put a bit of oil in there it will be fine.

    But I would definitely prefer to use thighs or wings or drumsticks.

    ^Yup, makes for some good chicken salads or even a quick pulled chicken for sandwiches or wraps

    As long as you have a liquid like a broth or wine in there the chicken breast stays incredibly tender. I only say chicken breast since that's more common and seems like it's what people prefer. I rather go thighs myself.

    Just bought a slow cooker this weekend. What else do I add besides chicken and veggies?

    My mom makes a mean chicken stew. She just leaves the pot on the range all day on low. Chicken falls off the bone.

    I def need that swimming guide. Went to the new gym pool, I didn't even do 1 lap before the lifeguard came over in anticipation of drownage. When I kick off and just keep my arms out I am good. But once I throw arms in the mix my kick rhythm gets thrown off and it all just goes to shit. It doesnt help that I'm dense as fuck and hover about a foot below the surface if I dead man float. So I kind of have to thrast and struggle just to skim the surface. I NEED HELP!!!! But at least I'm mobile now. I can go for 20 meters w/o stopping

    Short version is you're probably tensing up too much and losing optimal body position but I'll get more into detail later

    Practice front glide/side glide on a flutterboard in the meantime, making sure to keep your chin tucked in both positions so your body stays horizontal in the water

    Front glide = facedown, arms extended
    Side glide = sideways, mouth just clear of water, arm in water extended to Flutterboard and opposite arm down at your side; roll slightly towards back to ensure you're able to breathe instead of moving your head

    Dijion mustard, olive oil, chopped garlic, parmesan cheese, salt, and pepper mixed together make for a nice dressing over a pile of chicken and greens. Breath is KICKING right now, though.

    I think Intermittent Fasting has screwed up my sense of big servings and appetite.

    Tried the two pre workout meals setup for the first time today. Ate approx 30% of my daily intake in two small meals a couple of hours before lifting.
    Did my workout and came home starving, with only two hours left of the feeding window with 2500 calories left (70%).
    Surprisingly got it all down in two meals, easily. Was clean food too, chicken with rice, whole grain bread and oatmeal. I don't think I can ever go back to eating like normal people again or I would turn fat in an instant.

    sounds great.

    That's pretty much my regular salad dressing except with whole grain mustard seed and balsamic vinegar

    If it's not one thing, it's another.... just about to get back into a schedule and I tear a good 3cm long piece of skin off my thumb during a 120kg clean complex today. The biggest flapper I've ever seen, pretty grotesque. Guess I won't be pulling anything heavy for yet another week. :fu:

    lol this barely qualifies as a run.

    I realized I actually have been doing a pseudo-IF without all the crazy religious meal timing bullshit. I naturally have huge breakfast and dinners and light lunches, because anything I ever want to eat for lunch is way too involved to bring to work. It works out nicely, though some days I definitely feel hungry before dinnertime.

    Tried running today...made it 1.5 miles before wanting to die. To be fair though I deadlifted this morning and it was like 80 degrees out.

    if you just want to pass those 2 mile runs it's mainly about pushing yourself mentally.

    You have to go for a few runs to get used to telling your lungs to shut the fuck up.

    Just focus on cadence when running. You seem like the kind of guy that a constant "1-2-3-4" would help when running. Also don't use a treadmill if possible, those things are fucking evil.

    I think the problem is I find it so boring that I try to speed up the process by going faster...then get worn out quickly. :(
