    Toasty, will you just listen to these guys? It is good, simple advice and it works.

    While I would not have worded things this way, I'm going to have to +1 this effect.

    p.sure that whole 'test boost' phenom has been disproved. however, the endorphins released could modify your behavior.

    if you two anti-functionites don't want to be perceived as anti-function, then stop suggesting that a loaded bar DL doesn't provide function, pretty easy to drop that sentence...

    Have a wank before you squat and try and resist having one after. Possibly the ultimate test of willpower.

    Unless your home-cooked dinner has a ton of solid protein, fats, and carbs to make up for the rest of your daily intake, you aren't getting anywhere.

    I'm almost certain you don't have enough calories in your diet to support growth and if you've been eating like that for a bit, then your metabolism is crashed so good luck trying to get any more fat off.

    Food is the most anabolic thing there is. Don't fight food because it's only there to help. Add more calories to your diet.

    +1, you may be able to make some good initial gains on lifting with the diet you mentioned but you are going to plateau unless you up the intake. Not sure why you wouldnt do so......

    Tried squatting with my toes pointed forward in an effort to counterbalance my "Tight Hip Flexors/feet pointing out while running." I definitely took a beating strength-wise, but I feel like squatting with my feet pointed outward will only exacerbate the issue.

    Here's what I found about the different foot positions in squats"

    Thoughts?

    Feet should be in line with knees to avoid serious injury.

    The whole "Take some time off from the gym and after a week you'll be rearing to go" thing really works. Been really tired of training so I decided to take a week off. It's been 3 days and I can't wait to start again, but im gonna wait until Monday.

    C+J (with self taught form) 135 lbs, which felt cool to finally use the big boy plates.

    i did 1RMs today. 300 for squat, 385 for deadlift, and last friday did 225 for bench. I think my program's going to be a weird hybrid of 2 days a week 5/3/1 and 1 day a week oly lifting.

    :fu: thinking about entering the ipa nationals in nov just for the hell of it, but i think i'm to poor to afford the registration fees.


    also my diet discipline sucks. it'll be super on point for 2 weeks then the lady comes over and i jsut start shoveling in all the crap i've been wanting to eat. prolly going to do the same thing again tho :)

    IPA Nationals? In York? If so, you'll probably see me there.

    Do it!

    Squat and deadlift is coming along well. Bench is stagnant - mainly because I'm learning a new technique. I'm not aiming for anything ridiculous in terms of benching for this November. I'll be happy with 315.

    I do however want a 470 and a 555.



    Again, DO IT!

    Am I gonna get raped aerobically doing MMA on Tuesday? I quit smoking, but I still haven't done cardio ever really. It'll probably be pretty hard clases, gyms made a lot of competitive fighters. Sent some Irish [ikey to the UFC pretty recently, don't remember his name, but I can't understand a word he says.
