    My diet/protein intake is so shitty compared to pretty much all of you. I'm lucky if i get 100/g a day. Still seeing consistent gains though.

    Going back for the first time after a cold.

    Seems my pull-ups have stalled, as I'm consistently struggling to finish my fourth set of 4x8. Want to break through.

    Head cold for a week, feel so lazy and unmotivated.

    Sucks not being able to wear shirting, jackets, etc. with high armholes. But that shit just is not happening.

    Hit a pr 1rpm bench today @ 255lbs after finishing four sets of [email protected]

    Therefore, according to leangains projected max as % of bw, I officially do not have severe fuckarounditis. Vindication after years of suck.

    Man I can't even imagine for some of you bigger guys. I'm 20lbs lighter than you and I already have problems sometimes.

    Overall pretty good progress, looking at about 20 lbs in 2 1/2 months. From here on out it gets fun as the 6 pack starts coming through. :slayer:

    It's an absolute pain in the ass because even really leaning out isn't going to help much. A lot of the cool shit requires a real absence of muscle mass for it not to be constricting.

    It's one of the reasons I've grown to hate button-down shirts and favor draped tees and tops.

    Fitting into clothing sucks, but I'm clinging to my skinny jeans (which are only getting skinnier) until i look too ridiculous to go into public.

    LOL @ fixing my collar

    I usually have the closest person do it for me if I'm wearing a collar shirt.. but I rarely am because none fit me any longer :(

    The woes of 17" arms.



    Tees, sweaters, and drop crotch pants for me :)
