    is that a pound and a half of chicken? that's what you'd need for roughly 150g protein.

    how many of those fuckers are you eating in one day?

    1 lb chicken; 250g pasta and Parmesan have protein too. I'm cutting so even with that as my dinner my total calories are 2500 today.

    Switching to a high rep body building routine is going to suck for the first couple of weeks.

    I really enjoyed it right away brah, was kind of disheartening only putting 100kg on the bar to do squats with, but my joints started feeling better and dem pumps feel real good.

    Yeah I need to throw my ego out and just concentrate on hitting reps.

    RHET brahs, I have discovered a new pressing movement I enjoy. The flat db bench press. This is very rare, the only db movement i've ever enjoyed is the db incline press and thus ended up with like a 3:1 pull to press ratio. Will probably do it before incline bench. Did smith machine overhead press with my bodybuilder brah, fucking hated it, how do people press in smith machines, feels horrible. He was confused by my arch when I benched and the ripptoe form tricep extension. Asked me why I was doing decline bench and pull overs.

    Best thing I ever did for my physique. I'm pumped for like 24 hours after my workouts and have zero joint pains.

    Biggest change was dropping heavy deads for high rep SLDLs. I am gonna need some new pants this summer.

    When I first started working out I used to flat db bench before incline db bench. Liked it a lot.

    Hey All,

    I'm starting the Stronglifts 5 x 5 this Monday so I figure I'll be participating more in this thread sooner or later.

    Bit of background - I've been lifting in some form or fashion for about 20 years now. Mostly split-type 4-sets of 8-10 reps types of workouts. Over the past couple of years, I got fed up of the gym and so switched over to P90X workouts at home for resistance and HIIT on the stepper for cardio. That worked well for a couple of years.

    More recently, I've been doing functional workouts (ropes, kettlebells, TRX, etc) with a buddy who runs a bootcamp 3 x a week. I supplement those workouts with either some cardio or additional weight workouts.

    I have a buddy who's never really trained properly (most dumbbell and machine work in his condo gym) so I figured I'd do the Stronglifts program with him to get him familiar with lifting some decent weight.
