1. Welcome to the new Styleforum!

    We are currently fine-tuning the forum for your browsing pleasure, so bear with any lingering dust as we work to make Styleforum even more awesome than it was. I'd like to keep you abreast of the improvements we've made over the past few days.
    @notification emails have been added, in response to user requests

    Attached images are now Full Size by default

    Users are now all allowed three (3) links in their signature files,

    SSL certification is now in place so you can all browse securely.

    The server has been reconfigured so that site speeds will improve.

    Notice: Right now the site is slow because we are fixing all the images from the past 4 months. Many of you noticed that these were missing, and we are fixing that problem now. Unfortunately, it is taking up a lot of resources and causing the site to be slow.

    Oh, and don’t forget to head over to the Styleforum Journal, because we’re giving away two pairs of Carmina shoes to celebrate our move!

    Please address any questions about using the new forum to support@styleforum.net

    Cheers,

    The Styleforum Team

    Skeen, I guess you see me as a fun example of bad form and so on, but I asked because I wanted to improve my form (hence, I obviously found it lacking ). I try to get better at deadlifts, squats and so on because I find it so much more satisfying and motivating to add weight on my lifts rather than focus on appearance.

    Few of us are running logs on another forum, if you want the link shoot me a PM. It's a private forum so you'll have to request entry to that subforum via the admin

    I'd think all the lifting us young people are going to pay off when we are older. I mean you're only going to have one set of knees but id rather lift and increase my bone density and overall posture so when I'm older I have the strength to stay limber. I'd rather blow out my knee squatting 500lbs than picking up a watering can.

    People tend to put too much emphasis on protein, when carbs/fats should be the things you worry about.

    The whole 1g/PRO per lb of BW is overplayed, I've seen recommendations up to 2g/lb BW. Though, when I ask for credible sources they can never deliver.

    Most of us are in postprandial states all the time, and with the amino acid pool being more than sufficient to facilitate the elevation in muscle protein synthesis in the (up to) 36-48 hours following a weight training bout. The argument of .5g/lb, 1g/lb, 1.5g/lb becomes moot and nothing more then biased subjectivity.

    I see it like this

    Protein is less efficient to turn into energy but it's also harder to turn into fat. Also, personally, this bulk has made me kind of sick of carbs. I get about ~300g of protein on a lift day and ~200g on a rest day. It might not be ideal but I have enough energy in the gym and as of now there's no proof it's hurting anything. Yeech. Another 800 kcal of carbs, I'd kill myself.

    Yes, though a lot of protein does directly attribute to glucose levels. A lot of AA's are sufficiently produced endogenously.

    Nice to have you joining the thread, Diesel. You seem to know what you're talking about and you got some very respectable numbers.


    I'm gonna try to do both days. Currently get 225g a day (bw*1.2) and I'm gonna lower to 200. Stay there a while and then drop to around 185g. I only need 150g judging by that article but I like to eat protein too much.

    Keep in mind that a higher protein intake is needed on a cut than in surplus to spare muscle mass. Maybe not 225g for your size but prob more than 150. The leaner you get, the more protein. Protein also gets you the most full if you care about that.
