    Looking good TKJTG. Your comp is the same day as mine, right?



    Week 2 of my progressive overload winding down.

    Bench and squats were stupid easy.

    Deadlifts were felt easy-ish.

    Makes me sad because the same days as your competitions I have my exams.


    Getting below my chest on pull ups now, could probs do a muscle up if I knew how to kip and my pull up bar wasn't against a wall.

    Much better DLs this morning, focused on keeping back/core tight, really pushing hips forward and heels down. Much less back soreness. Hit 3 x 295, getting close to my goal of three plate DL. Insane how easy Charley makes it look.

    Pretty hard to get high carbs with really low fat on a refeed day. Macros for the day:

    Totals 2,848 384 51 203

    Had to eat loads of sugary stuff, 2 energy drinks, bag of skittles, bread and pasta. Most carbs come equipped with fat. Not sure i need refeed days at 14-15% BF but i feel that my metabolism has slowed a lot in response to the lowered calories so they should help fire it up again.

    High carb with low fat ain't hard. My go to carb sources for reefed days are potatoes, rice, natural cereals and fruit. Sugary carb sources isn't necessarily bad on a carb refeed. The carb back loading diet actually claims it's better on a refeed than fibrous, whole grain, or whatever slow digesting "healthy" source.

    I usually get some low fat ice cream in my post workout refeed and I know that lots of Leangains clients eat a ton of cakes and sugar down sub 10% bf.

    How the hell is it tough to get carbs? If it's really that tough then why not just drink a ton of juice?

    Just noticed Charly has different footwear for each of the 3 lifts.

    Oly shoes for squatting, deadlift slippers for deadlifting, anything for benching.
