    the tuna was a desperation move, nothing else in the house. thats what its there for i guess. i still have a tub of true protein/nutrition casein im working through, but im trying to limit myself to 1 scoop/day to stretch it out. i buy whatever meat is on sale. havent had shrimp in awhile though..


    protein stays decently high. yes, there are some pretty low days, but my average protein intake from across the week comes to 210g daily. the key is consistency, if you stick to it all week, the net effect by sunday night means you're overall below maintenance but you've gone up enough on some days to keep your metabolism hot and low enough on others to burn more fat. its much more than low calories on lifting day = no progress, and if anything its helped me stop being a puss and just lift.

    as far as the ohp thing goes, i ditched stronglifts when my ohp plateaued. i dont really like it much as a main movement; i much prefer the squat/bench/deadlift/bench accessory setup i am on now.


    that actually sounds pretty good. ive upped my greens consumption too, ive been getting so damn hungry i've been grinding heads of broccoli and eating them with a spoon just to keep me satiated, lol. its funny, all the conventional wisdom i gained from websites goes totally against what john says in some cases, but i stick with it, and voila..

    After a productive week of sitting on my sofa watching seasons 1 and 2 of madmen and eating pretty much just yoghurt and whey im gonna get back in the gym tomorrow. Maybe my sutures will break and I can spit blood at people. Upper body power day

    5x3 cleans
    5x10 face pulls
    5x10 T bar row
    5x3 Db bench
    3x8 db incline bench
    3x8 preacher curl
    3x8 tricep extension

    Hoping for an 80kg clean in a few weeks.

    I really don't like SPBR. Too many different exercises, too much pushing. I think I will drop it soon.

    How do you ditch a clean from the full squat position? Cleaned the weight and caught it in the squat, but I lost my tightness and couldn't squat it up. Just kind of flicked it forward and it really hurt my wrist. I did however manage an 80kg clean, which im quite proud of. How to stop falling forward on the front squat, it's a bit lower then my clean so I end up falling forward on max efforts. Taught a retard gym bro how to squat today, I loled because he's on gear and got pinned by a 50kg squat. Did the westside box squat thing to teach him how to sit back instead of squatting between his legs.

    Power hypertrophy adaptive training. Posted about it before, you didn't like it, I have gotten strength gains on it, but I did modify it so its less hypertrophy based.

    Behind me? You catch a clean in a front squat position.

    Also, unless you are an advanced lifter, do not modify programs, especially if they are written by knowledgeable people.

    Not modifying it much. Its just that I don't really have time to do 3 different curls and 3 different tricep extensions, I think im fine with 1 or 2 and I don't really feel like asking a bro to sit on my back so I can do donkey calf raises.
