    Basically I worked on my hamstring and hip flexibility and I concluded that you're supposed to feel uncomfortable as fuck in the pulling position.

    EDIT: Don't really care if it works or is broscience, I need to stretch more anyways considering I don't do warm up sets and it's apparently helping with recovery.

    had a great workout day today - 5 sets of 5 at 215, then a whole shitload of presses with dumbells and lat pulldowns until basically collapse. then I hit a 1 hour boxing class which was a blast.

    makes sense, hip flexibility is a major problem for me. when you say uncomfortable, you mean in your hamstrings? there was always a point in my pull where i felt the whole weight was through my traps/upper back- even though i tried to keep the bar near my shins. perhaps i'm leaning too far forward because of my locked-up hips..

    I hate this feeling... Don't have a doctors appointment until friday. Not sure if i should lift with the cysts in my rotator cuff, they said it could be cured with a steroid injection...

    Weird feeling...for the first time since 2008 the scale says 200+. I know it doesn't really count since it was an evening weigh-in rather than a morning weigh-in, but still weird to see. Last time I weighed over 200 I had like 25% BF and was weak as fuck. It's weird thinking about how much has changed since then.

    Gonna try your sludge recipe. Added coco powder and a banana though because im using unflavoured whey.

    I think it needs more whey. Don't know if thats enough. I kept adding more shit to try get the consistency right and eventually the whole bowl was full.


    Internet is telling me to microwave it. Should I listen to the internet?

    Used a pulled pork slow cooker recipe, but swapped in chicken since that's what I had on hand. Fuckin' excellent, especially on a toasted bun. I made the sauce before I threw it in the slow cooker, so it was pretty much all good stuff (chili sauce was a bit high in sodium, but whatever), so it was pretty clean. Still tasted like I was eating a cheat meal.

    It's made eating this many calories a hell of a lot easier this past week.

    FUARK THAT PROTEIN SLUDGE IS SO GOOD. I don't think it'd taste that good without the bananas though. Just ate like 1500 calories in a few minutes.

    slow cook everything, did honey garlic chicken and sweet and sour meatballs so far this week. bolded portion is truth, i have never wanted to eat more meat before now.

    protein sludge sounds so good too though, but don't want to drop 200+ on a trueprotein order

    Thought of today - I wish I never bothered pushing above a 400/300/500 total. Physique wise there is little payoff.

    Physique-wise, I don't think there's much of a benefit of ever putting more than 3 plates on the bar for any exercise.

    2 Weeks into IF. 4 lbs down. Pants are feeling loose, though abs are only slightly more visible.

    How are you feeling about it as far as maintaining strength and LBM and the behavioral aspects of it?
