    I used the anaconda protocol. It was developed in a black ops bodybuilding lab. When you use it you can literally hear the slabs of muscle being added to your frame.

    4realz though Just ON gold Standard whey and creatine. Creatine makes me look really cut up (broscience reasoning is that it's sucking sub-dermal water into my muscles). It's also pretty cheap. Only downside is i feel slightly sick to my stomach in the mornings, but that's the price you pay for gainz.

    Creatine makes you look cut? I always feel like I look bloated when I'm on it. :embar:

    It varies from person to person. I just happen to be lucky.

    I always enjoyed Chris Shugart's food-related pieces on TNation, since they often included some easy, yet delicious recipes. Seems like he's abandoned such writing entirely in favor of being the Indigo cheerleader.

    Those protocols always sound enticing, but then you take a step back and realize that they're the nutritional equivalent of fast fashion. You couldn't glance anywhere on the site without being bombarded with that pulse fast package a couple of years ago. Now it's as though that protocol never existed because you sure don't read anything about it on the site.

    I was looking for the right emoticon to show my disapproval, but can't find it on my phone...

    So pissed off....my 2 rest days were spend eating only about 2.5k calories, due to hotel food., which was enough for me to lose a fuck ton of strength. Last week benched 62.5 for 3 x 5, this week struggled to do 60kg for 2 x 3. 60 was fairly comfortable before but it felt so heavy today. How is 2 days enough to lose that much strength. Its hard to gauge progress and know what weights to be using when you start going backwards.

    Dude find a health store near you and scoop in some aplified mass xxx beefcake gainer. Drink a shake before bed and one in the morning. That'll help you keep your calories up.

    Without dragging up any of the anti-Crossfit nonsense, www.mobilitywod.com is a pretty amazing resource. I've seen Kelly for rehab, and he might be the most knowledgeable person I've ever met on the subjec of mobility.

    He's certainly a character, but a really really nice guy in person, and, again, among the best resources out there.

    Front squat 140kg (315lb) in the bag. Rewarded myself by eating 4 cupcakes after workout. And also came to realization that I think I like front squat more than back squat.
