    Honestly can't stand my oatmeal hot and always eat it raw. I don't have time for that bullshit to cool off. One to two cups a day. Makes the steel cut route a little tricky. I have eaten a few raw cups of steel cut but it's a lot of work.

    People are eating oats for the carbs. Why would you eat an egg for carbs?

    Seriously, guys, just ignore him. Otherwise, we're just going to get pages and pages of people talking past one another under the guise of "discussion."

    Carbs are of no nutritional value. Replace oats with bacon and coconut oil. Eat more mayonnaise if you want to get strong. :foo:

    Deadlifts today, 3 x 3 at 205. If I am feeling a significant strain in my lower back when deadlifting at 205, is this (a) normal (b) the result of poor form or (c) the result of too much weight? I feel like as I get higher up in weight, the focus of the lift is moving from hips/quads to back. For what its worth, the strain goes away a couple hours later, it feels more like a significant stretch than a pull.

    Similar happened to me. The most likely culprit is form + weight. Drop down in weight, work on your core and really tightening your back and blowing out with your waist. Record a vid (head-on and side view) and we can comment on where you should work on it.. Also if you're feeling it in your back, do GHRs (they're "easy" to do regarding form; once you feel more confident you can do good mornings also) for your hamstrings, as that's partly why you round out your back to get off the ground.

    counterpoint: you are always going to feel it in your lower back when you deadlift. as long as you are making a distinction between "feeling it"/doms and pain then adjust as necessary.

    ever since i broke through 315 i am feeling it more and more in my mid to low back. at first i was worried i was going to break myself, and then i realized i was probably just pulling enough weight to warrant back soreness.

    A fair point. This is why it's so hard to say whether the strain is just from the pull or from bad technique when there's no vid. 205 for three triples shouldn't really smoke ones lower back (unless they weigh something like 100 lbs).

    For me, it was really easy to tell the difference. I'd get a lower back pump most sessions, but in a good sort of way. The two times I legitimately hurt myself doing deadlifts, it was like all strength just dissipated from my lower back in a matter of minutes. Just awful.
