strange how some structure prep protocols, sometimes....
and - did I miss something somewhere? you are rep now?
well congrats bro
moving right along in my own gig here, killer chesticle session today -- I mean chest was just gimammoth
(was so engorged, I had to come up with a new word just to describe it)
standing in my kitchen afterwards, I put a plate on the top part of my upper chest, and it balanced there perfectly is how swole them orbs were.... okay I exaggerate slightly there, but you get the point
6 sets abs
flat BB bench
incline BB bench
slowed pace a bit today, also moved hands around a bit (inward) on bar work, hit a slightly different angle..
typically I will almost always work on upper chest first (ie incline work), but switched things up a tad today, used flat bench first in a sort of pre-exhaust mode..was hella nice session really
cals were 6100 yesterday, carbs 825g
today as planned, will shoot for 6650-6700 and 950g carbs
getting to that 7k mark/1000g carbs slowly but surely!

I'm not a prep coach so I don't feel bad saying this.
Dump this mother ****er.
Run away. In the opposite direction. Very quickly. Never get prep help from him again.
Have you ever heard of Layne Norton and metabolic damage?
If your girlfriend doesn't leave this guy she'll be there.
I'm saying this in the hopes you two will do something about this- this isn't a joke. That coach is going to drive her metabolism into the ground.
Either a. Find a new coach
Or b. Don't do the contest now.. Build her metabolism up slowly, then have her do a show
Please, take this seriously. Act quickly, this isn't a joke.
Ok... Snags, I have to agree with the other guys now- that's a **** ton of carbs

@ Ace: she's just a friend at work, but I was trying to explain that she's gonna blow back up as soon as she eats normal again - her body is gonna forget how to process carbs!
@snagnormous: Thanks man, just got going with the Andro Factory gig. Should be some fun stuff coming in the near future hopefully! And I had a full chest day thursday that I felt similarly about - still sore this Sunday morning even. But boy I was feeling pumped: a good chest day is hard to beat.

yeah i'm glad someone said that up there actually..good call ace
I am nearing the end of my capacity here, really don't think I can consume much more
and I DEF cannot place any more around workout -- this remains my one meal (postWO meal) that is just difficult to choke down, coming on heels of preWO/postWO shakes
postWO shake has grown a smidge tho, is now
2 rice krispie treats
2 rice cakes + 2 TBS brown rice syrup
45g whey isolate
meal comes 1hr later, another 1000cals
nothing else can be done there, period
09-29-2013, 05:00 PM
All the rice cakes are blended into the isolate shake at home, correct? And I assume you're avoiding waxymaize/designer carb blends because they're not calorically dense enough?
09-29-2013, 05:06 PM
as for avoiding designer carbs - really wms is okay I spose, I've just never relied on these for my nutritional needs is all...with the increase in cal ingestion tho, can def see a use for them being handy
the only thing i'll really avoid like the plague is malto, that sh1t sucks
09-29-2013, 09:30 PM
recap on today's caloric endeavors:
all totals reached - 6695cals, 945/475/120.5
protein still just a tad high but really not a big deal, as fats were kept extra low (proportionately, ~16% of intake) in trade-off
this meal for supper was really large, I mean the damn thing just would NOT disappear, seemed like I was shoveling food in my mouth forever .. was only 950cals too (120/75/21)
a lil "before pic" of that fajita, prior to rolling it up
was can of chicken breast+2oz ham+2oz mesquite turkey breast+pepperjack cheese+red bell pepper
pic of some random dinner from the other day
another week on-cycle, then we flip the diet a bit, lots of changes put in place in the makeover, and more ease/convenience of prep as well as different food options..ya'll have to wait to see what I got up my sleeve for this

Dafuq is kefir (saw it at the local grocery store).
Thought about dropping milk, saw how expensive almond milk is, probably gonna continue buying milk......

Combination of Keif and reefer. Used among well informed potheads to refer to dank that gets its power from the the crystals/orange hairs/and fine resin particles (keif)that come off a kind bud. When smoked a very very intense high will ensue.
Not to be confused with Keith, which is a really fat joint, though the term probably originated from people somehow misusing Keith for Keif.
We smoked Keifer and then drove to Krystals for a bag of burgers.

I actually didn't see anything all that bad in there...
Looked it up some and it seems to be pretty good for you....

might look healthy for you, tastes like ass...also majority I see is cow milk, which (as you know) I do not touch -- but I would not do fermented goat milk or any other fermented milk for that matter, either
all #s reached yesterday, totals came in
dinner was a 1125cal/175g carb monstrosity that was just ridiculous, almost couldn't finish it (included 1/2c basmati+1/2c potatoes+PB&jam on wheat toast); need to level out meals a tad and avoid this ginormous feeding at night

Most people don't tolerate it Well due to the lack of the enzyme lactase..
Also, it makes me bloated as hell.
It's not the best for your health either. I'd be interested to see what snags says

I figured out in my late 20s that I was allergic to milk -- this, after regularly drinking 1g to 1.5g milk daily the majority of my 20s
as soon as I ceased, my skin cleared up, I was less phlegmy, less bloated/gaseous, could breathe better...just felt sooo much better overall
then, I started studying food allergies and specifics of nutrients, learned some pretty amazing stuff about foods and how the majority of humans adapt to/develop allergies to some things that they previously had tolerated well up to a certain point in their lives -- milk the most obvious, but rice is another one that a great many ppl will develop allergies to at some point in life
btw simon: almond milk is the way to go, great stuff
weight is still hanging same range ~214 .. my metabolism has adapted to caloric ingestion once again (sigh)

while not extremely common (or among most common allergens), is still more prevalent than one would think..
interesting stuff, how repeated/too much exposure over prolonged period can wreak havoc with some
some other more common food allergens:
•nuts from trees (including hazelnuts, walnuts, almonds, and Brazil nuts)
•shellfish (including shrimps, mussels, and crab)

decent shoulder session today, despite once again feeling a smidge bleh
allergies have leveled off (actually broke down and picked up some OTC stuff for it), still get the random headache and itchy eyes tho..
seated BB military press
face pulls w/ D-grip
BB upright rows
I may just end up with 7k cals this day, and I am def shooting for 1000g carbs

Their almond milk is cheap as it gets man. And they have lactose free skim & 2% if you want milk - just literally 2x the cost of normal milk. But I literally get none of the bloat/gas etc normal milk would give me.
