    Hmm, I wouldn't go loose under anything remotely "heavy" for the individual...

    Not loose as in letting his back slump, way he does it is he sits down on the box, but then straightens his back so he's completely vertical instead of bent forward like in a low bar squat, pauses and loses all the tension in his hips then leans back forward and squats.

    inb4 does he even lift/ know what he's doing. 2.5xbw unbelted squat after like 9 months of training.

    I've never seen/heard of anything like that before. What purpose could that serve?

    I guess. Still seems like an injury waiting to happen if done with any significant weight.

    I'm still dealing with my right hip adductor/external rotator bullshit. Yesterday was my 5/3/1 should have done 230 on the squat for max reps. My work set, I got fucking 3, and I barely got the last one. I was so pissed off that I did my work set again and got in another 5. Just goes to show how mental it is. Still, depressing as fuck watching my squat and DL go lower and lower. Bench was 240 x 4 last week though, and military was 140 x 5, that feels good.

    disregard sodium, hit macros.

    I generally try and avoid it, but unless you cook yourself, it's fairly hard to do

    Just tried on a medium RL custom fit polo that used to drown me.....bordering on too tight now, which would be fine by me, except because i fill up the chest and back it's become too short. FFS need clothes that fit. If i buy a large in anything the arm holes are huge and it doesnt give any sort of V taper. In fact, all cotton t-shirts suck because the arms are fitted at first and then after half an hour they stretch out and arms look tiny again.

    Yeah, I focus on macros more, I was just wondering what a reasonable upper limit is.

    No fucks given about micro nutrients, eat enough sodium that you hit your macros. Unless your actually eating little bricks of it you'll probably be fine.

    Unless you have problems with hypertension, it really doesn't matter. The only thing a young, healthy guy with normal blood pressure might experience is some fluid retention. This is easy to take care of -- just up your water intake in proportion to how much salt you're eating and it'll prevent the water from being retained.

    The only time I really focus on minimizing salt is if I know I'm going to the beach on Saturday I stop eating salty food on Thursday and drink a shitload of water.
