    Go to a good butcher and get some unsmoked. Much better than ham but the ham that is sliced in front of you in a butchers is normally good too, especially if its breaded.

    I'm also in my thirties and have no aspirations of ever competing, I've pounded my body in my lates teen and early twenties playing football at 295lbs. I am happy right now just dropping some body fat and improving my quality of life...

    i've been doing 5/3/1 and today i hit 165x10 on the bench press. i remember i had an accountability thread a year or two ago and somewhere in there i recorded the first time i ever hit 165.


    also anybody do fasted training? i think i'm going to stop it. i think i would rather have better performance during workouts than burning a marginal amount of body fat. today i was so hungry i didn't want to finish.

    i think you are overrating "optimal," and nothing would work forever


    i train fasted 90% of the time, as in eating my last meal at ~10pm the night before, 1 scoop whey 11:30am, gym at 12pm noon. i love it; i hate training with a big meal in my stomach. if i work during the day i'll eat around ~3 and train at 8, so 5 hours after eating 500 cals or so and that works too. not entirely fasted, but i dont have the sluggish post-meal feeling going. i dont do it for any fat-burning benefits, i just feel better when i do.

    grats on the pr too, always feels nice to rep out an old pr single.

    I'm probably the laziest about diet in this entire thread. Don't log calories or anything, just make sure to get plenty of protein, avoid excessive refined carbs and saturated fat. Heavy bro-workouts a couple times a week, high intensity BB/KB complexes a couple times a week. Running/Soccer/Yoga when I can. Fish Oil + Vitamin D + Creatine.

    Then again, I really have no desire to change how I look so 'sall good

    No I don't see how anyone does it, eat fuck loads right before I train. Before training today I had, 2 bannanas, scoops of whey, 2 ham sandwiches on pretzel rolls and was lifting 15 minutes later. Usually prefer to eat more.

    I've had really good bacon before, but I agree. Made this s/n when liking bacon was becoming the soup de jour. Regretted it like a month later.

    bacon is far superior to ham; its the best pig-meat. bacon->pork->ham, in that order.

    Actually, the best pig meat is jowl/cheek. Get some good guanciale if you get the chance. It's basically jowl cured in the same way as bacon, and is heaven in your mouth.

    The pig is too diverse of an animal to claim one part is better than another. It's all in the quality and prep. Generally I'd agree, but I just ate this fucker (schweinshaxe) about 3 weeks ago and swooned:

    I never even asked how much? Although, I am 90% sure the legs below the knee will be tighter than a vigrin's honeypot...

    FWIW, Mike (the owner), has some massive quads himself, which is one of the reasons a lot of Epaulet pants are cut to accommodate bigger thighs while holding on to an overall flattering silhouette.

    That what I read somewhere, yeah. Problem is when one gets in the 26" thigh territory, hard to find pants that fit.

    I feel you on that. Which is why none of my pants have a normal rise anymore.
