    Fuck. Just got a vm from one of the partners saying they'd like to bring me in and talk about bringing me on for the next couple of months. I'm really excited but fucking terrified given that I'd be taking a huge pay cut and have really uncertain exit opps after the summer, and also am going to owe this admissions consultant a boat of money and my savings aren't at where I want them to be. Thinking about offering to work as a consultant for my current employer and come back after the internship.

    I also have absolutely no idea how to prepare for this. No idea if they want to actually interview me or just sit down and talk about it or what. Shit.

    Well, broughtmy self back down to reality today. 470DL attempt ended in a fail. Couldn't get it passed my knees. Looks like I'll have to check the ego and make smaller leaps.

    Kunk lookin thick, solid, tight.

    ______

    Do you guys measure food raw or cooked? I'm confused as fuck. Like with rice, the nutrition label, is that accounting for the rice before or after I cook it? Also chicken breasts, raw or cooked?

    All nutrition labels are created for raw measures, unless stated otherwise.
    If you cook it and then measure it out, you'll have to enter the cooked measure into myfitnesspal or whatever you're using, as a cooked food since the foods will have a different weight

    For instance:
    100g raw chicken breast has 20-23g protein, 1-3g fat
    100g cooked chicken breast 27-29g protein, 3g fat
    100g raw chicken breast usually becomes 75g cooked, since the water gets out of the meat

    rice on the other hand, will weigh more when it is cooked since it absorbs water
    100g uncooked rice - 80g carbs 8g protein
    100g cooked rice - 25g carbs, 3g protein

    Some foods weigh exactly the same and thus have the same nutrition raw or cooked, like boiled potatoes

    TLDR: Just plug in the food as raw if you measure it raw, and as cooked if you measure it cooked

    Yo guys this post got lost on the last page, would appreciate fuji/concealed input on this shit.

    Pulling 355 tonight hopefully, really hoping my deadlift keeps moving because it's the only thing that's keeping the 1000lb total goal in sight! 355 will put me up to 915 total :slayer:

    Hmm. He probably has a point. Though I don't think I will ever hate a certain lift like that, there's a place for everything. I do leg extension and leg curls. Leg extensions for a burnout after doing 3 x 8-12 highbar squats with 225lbs and bands wrapped around my quads. Leg curls in a burnout set of pullups and ghrs.

    I kind of agree. I realized I was fucking around earlier this year. Getting my diet on point and "purifying" my programming is why I've made more gains in the last 6 months than I did in the previous 3 years. I whittled down my leg day to squats + deads and ab + calf accessory work. Once my chest heals up I'm gonna take a similarly bare-bones approach to my upper body days too.

    I am a little skeptical of this dude getting people going from nothing to squatting 3 plates in a year though. Thats 6lb a week every week. He doesnt look that big either to be on a bodybuilding program. This is also the DB who said Matt Ogus was half natty too right? Lol. Hes on the money though. Eat big, master your techniques, lift heavy, simplify your programming, establish and work towards goals. Thats what it's all about.

    Kinda late to this discussion, but I've been feeling the same way the past couple months. I think it's a combination of 1) going out in the winter fucking sucks and 2) living in the same city for too long. I basically go to the same 2-3 clubs and the same 4-5 afterparty lofts if I go out. I've been considering taking some time off work and traveling soon. I also find that I go out a lot in the summer but hibernate during the winter. In past years when I didn't work out, I'd go stir crazy and go out anyway during the winter, but now when I have something to focus on and accomplish, it's a lot easier to put on a sweater and watch Doctor Who or play Dota or something on a Friday night.

    I think to call people lazy is wrong, although I think almost everyone could see better progress if they just put more focus on the important stuff.

    Roughly 2 years ago, I started to get serious with my training. Educated myself and put in a lot of effort. Only problem was that I did things I didn't need and that hurt my progress. So I def wasn't lazy, I just read and did a lot of things that didn't apply to me.

    For example, I was cutting way too early and spent the majority of the time in the gym on unnecessary accessory movements. IMO, it's a waste of time for a beginner to do incline DB press with 30 pounds when you can do more sets with the barbell bench press. I'm not saying those DB presses won't lead to anything, but the time is better spent with the big and basic lifts to ingrain proper motor patterns and the like.

    In the same way, I've not really "wasted" my time with all the time I've spent on unnecessary lifts since they have led to some growth and increased my work capacity, but I would no doubt be stronger if I had just done something like SS from the start and been in a small calorie surplus the whole time.

    The last two months, I've been doing his 5x5 program and my progress is faster than ever. More frequency and higher volume with the basics has helped me a ton. All smaller accessory lifts are gone and so far I don't miss doing them nor have I needed them.

    It may be possible.
    My squat max 8 months ago was probably around 190 and now its 290.

    A beginner coming from a somewhat athletic background would probably be squatting at least 135 his first time.
    That kind of person could very well do 315 after a year if everything is done correctly and he isn't too skinny at the start.

    Big part of it is the journey as well. Do I wish I had had the right diet and programming... 10 years ago when I really started? Sure. But it's better late than never I guess and I've learned a lot along the way.

    Totally doable. People aren't starting from zero, I think the average person who had done anything athletic in their life could gut out at least 135 if we throw form out the window so once you get form down its only ~180 lbs. or 3.5/ week.
