I understand fruits/veggies are sugars too, but imo, their positives outweigh the carbs. My body seems to respond to carb changes up and down. quickly

Anyone have any good suggestions on something to fill me up, especially durring the work day? Im basically on a job site 10 hours a day so Im abit limited.

Is there such a thing as a 12volt magic bullet?
How many calories are you taking in and what are your macros looking like?

With no other info, I'd say up your protein intake as it's the most satiating macro.

Went to get a Blender Bottle after reading SkinnyPupp's thread on RS and decided to try it out after my $3 Walmart kept leaking. All I have to say is this cup although pricey (locally for 8.99 London Drugs) it has SUPERIOR quality.

Also any good tips for someone whose doing the 5x5 strength training but also want to cut? Thanks

Wayy off, i go to Fitness World in Langley. I like it there and all, but Golds is definitely an upgrade. Been to the Cambie & Davie (no homo!) locations and didn't really like it there, the downtown gyms are always sooo packed and crowded.

Had a different workout today. Did chest (incline/flat/decline/flies/dips) a little bit of triceps and finished off with squats. Warm up: Set of 15 @ 135, then 3 sets of 6 @ 225.. decided to try 275 managed to get 2 out. Which means next leg day i'll be able to do 6 (as long as i do a carb load beforehand).
My goal is to do a set of 6 @ 3 plates (305) by next month. I'll update you guys when it goes down!

just realized my bench/squat/deadlift all hover around the 300 mark. I'm about 70 pounds away from the 1000 club. Anybody ever hear of this? it's the 1 rep max of your 3 compound lifts. Deep down i think 1 rep max's are kinda useless, but 2 years ago i thought this was unattainable (something only juice monkeys could do) so i'm going to bask in the glory for a little bit

Congrats!

My buddy in HS hit the 1000 mark and got a t shirt for it. I was hella jealous. But I'm slowly creeping up there. About 20-30 lbs off. I've stopped bench pressing though. It messes up my shoulders.

my 3 rep max was 25lbs short of 1000lbs about 3 months ago. @185lbs body weight at the time. i was all ready to do all 3 lifts in one session and get vid of it. fuck now im a little bummed i fell off this might just motivate me to get back there for summer!



AA, if you're 3/300 you should easily be able to get your DL up that 70lbs by summer to hit 1000. do it ! ps, put the glory down til you get the 1k!


halo, you're a dick. fucker

Shiiit, I just clued into that now. Had a bit of a derp moment, i'm usually pretty good when it comes to basic math. In this case it works to my favor, for all three exercises i'm @ 3 plates = 945. I'm sure my DL is higher but never gone above 315 because ( bench/dl were 2 reps) i'm a bit paranoid i'll fuck up my spine or something by going too heavy too young. I'm gunna estimate my 1rm @ 370 so i can check-mark this goal off my list and focus on volume

... so here's my current workout routine .. flame away .. what can I do to improve my muscle mass? I don't really give a crap about definition right now, I just want mass in the right places and strength.

Here's how a typical week goes for me lately,

Spoiler!



Critique me please, what should I add/what should I keep? Also thinking of going back to doing legs on the smith machine as I find its much easier to go heavy and keep my balance on smith, I've been struggling with the regular barbells.

Your Friday looks stacked compared to your other days. I would choose one of dumbbell or barbell for flat/incline press and probably switch between them each week

My knees feel more natural doing them. I've got a family history of knee problems =\ but I'll stick with barbell for now. Smith just feels more natural, and I can go deeper into the squat without pain, and I get so much more soreness. I might just start doing hack squats ... will experiment next week

Thanks I'll consider dropping a few exercises off my Friday, it's a bit hectic.

What do you guys think though? Is there any improvements I could make to gain strength faster in my 3 big lifts (Squat/dead/bench)? Should I be working my triceps on my legday as well to up their strength to get my bench higher? I know guys who do the big 3 lifts more than once a week (squatting, deadlifting, and benching 2x a week), if I wanted to do that, what would my approach be? Thanks guys.

How are you when you deadlift? I wanna try this next time I workout,


Same motion as a dead lift if you use the barbell (almost) but targets your quads

The only thing that sucks is my grip

But then again everything seems to suck these days because I just dont have as much time to dedicate to lifting anymore
