  1. If you think eggs are boring I think you're doing it wrong.

  2. They get boring. And that is a lot of eggs to get your protein requirements.

    Yeah, it is a lot of eggs to meet the protein requirements. Definitely give you that. I just like the variety of foods one can make with eggs - scrambled with a variety of veggies (my least favorite preparation of eggs, but great once in a while), omlettes (always great), fried eggs (what I do every day), poached eggs, deviled eggs (like scrambled, only good once in a while), and the trusty hardboiled egg.

I am feeling now as I progress something is missing. I just can't eat enough food to get the protein, and I don't want to rely completely on powders. Eggs are boring, I don't want to eat too much fish as it does contain heavy metals. I don't like factory farming and try to buy organic chicken. I will see as I go on. I eat a lot of lentils. It gets expesive to eat good, but as I get older these things become more of a concern.
    Gotcha, I was a lacto veg. for a bit. Had to get some protein via animal sources, ie: eggs whey diary etc.
    It does get expensive to eat good, especially organic and you are right, fish and eggs only go so far. I also do not think, I could ever give up my hot wings either.
    I get some stuff from Grassland Wellness Beef. They have no hormones, no nitrate, no antibiotic meats. It is not super cheap, but they ship in a few days and have some pretty good products.
    And congrats on your addition to family, DAD....!

    Thanks Paul.

  7. So it looks like I have a date with the lacrosse ball as I can't even bench my pec delt ties ins are so tight. I am afraid i am going to pull something. I have to get this worked out.

    Started warming up on the bench and scrapped it.

    landmine tbar rows 4x10 3plates
    band pushdowns 4x14
    band pullaparts 4x15
    chins 4x5
    face pulls into Y press 3x8

  8. So i figured i would start free squatting again. It has been 6.5 years since i did any free squatting, basically when i hurt my leg loading stones. I have terrible mobility in the hips. So i figure that will have to change so i can widen my stance (which will still not be wide by any stretch) and squat to depth. So i did some mobility work and then did many sets of 5 paused squats with 145. This was not pleasant at all, lol. finished off the workout with 4x12 wide stance kb two handed swings. So i guess we will see the reconstruction of a squat on here. Curious what everyone uses to film there lifting.

    6.5 years? Hot damn. Good luck easing into it again.

    And I just prop my phone up against something to take video and edit it with the iMovie app

  10. I use my tablet which has a stand, but when my friend films his own lifts he props his phone up against a kettlebell.

  11. Standing strict shoulder press 205x5 145 2x8

    chins 5x5

    side/front laterals 3 sets until it burned

    face fulls 3x12

    45 minutes of walking on the treadmill.

  12. Deadlifts 495x3

    Reverse Hypers 3 plates and 10's a side. 3x10

    landmine Tbar rows 3 plates and 10's 3x10


    Felt good today. Deads are progressing nicely. Grip needs to catch up though.

  13. A little beat from Monday. Normally i would bench today but since i am off the rest of the week, my home gym does not have squat bar. They do however have a comp bench.

    Worked my way up to 285x3 on squats. Depth was OK, not spectacular. I have some video of it but it is taking a while to email from my phone. I took some photos of where i train at lunch. Not bad for the office.

    I think did SS bar strict GM's with 95 lbs. I did 2x12 and hams were screaming so i stopped. I don't want to be cramping up tomorrow when i am stuffing my face. Bench on Friday and off to see Megadeth/Fear Factory. Name:  IMG_20131127_125200_436.jpg

    Fear Factory will be awesome!

  16. Thanks guys. That is in my office. The basement. Reverse Hyper, power rack, comp bench, 40, 50, 60lb pairs of kbells, squat bar, texas deadlift bar, 1500lb rated bench bar. Olympic dumbbell handles, SS bar, deadlift jack an platform, bands, dip bar, landmine and all the handles. Eliptical, treadmill, bike, and some bodybuiding stuff. The gym I belong to at home is a regular gym that has some powerlifting stuff, but it is USAPL since Dennis Cieri owns it.

  17. I read Lillys cube book so I figured I would try the paused benches an inch off the chest. They definitely felt different. I was not at work today so went to the gym, it was **** show. I didn't have anyone trustworthy to spot me and I didn't really want to be there.

    pause bench one inch off chest 135, 185, 225, 275x8

    front/side lateral raises 3x10

    cambered bar curls 3x10

    40 minutes on the treadmill.

    At least I got something done. Off to see Megadeth/Fear Factory.

  18. Yesterday

    Standing strict overhead 155 3x8
    Hip adductor, lots of reps, lots of sets.
    Klokov presses lots of sets and reps trying to get a feel.
    40 minutes walk on treadmill

    Today
    Took it easy as was a little beat up from pulling heavy (for me) last week.

    Wide stance two handed kbell swings 3x12
    band pullaparts 5x15
    Reverse hypers 3x10

    Feeling good, doing a lot of reading about the cube. Going to start it in Jan.

    You must have gone to the same concert one of my friends went to. He told me about how good the Megadeth show was. Out of curiosity I went to look up the Megadeth setlist and even I was impressed.

  20. It was awesome. Opened with Hangar 18 and ended with Holy Wars. They were fast and furious. He can still play, and his singing is not as bad as people say it is. Fear Factory was good, I listen to them a lot when I train. They don't translate as well live in my opinion though.

  21. Yesterday worked my close grip up to 275x8
    paused bench 1" off the chest 185 22x8
    band crossovers 3x12
    band pushdowns 3x15
    T bar rows 3x10
    band pullaparts 3x15

    Still reading up on the cube. Looking to start after new years.

  22. You'll def enjoy the cube if /when ya give it a go

  23. Sean, I like the way it is layed out. I also like the fact that I can lay out 9 weeks of training and stick to it. What template did you base your training after. I see a few different ones on line.

    Do you have his new book? I follow the template off of that for the main movements, and the assistance I do however I want.

    And Herderdude mentioned another way to run it. repeat the first 3 weeks, but only adding maybe 5 or so lbs to each lift to still progress, in order for it to be more of a hypertrophy phase.

  27. Nope, looks like I will be buying it. I assume it is the one on the website.

  28. My third squat training session

    worked up to 325x3

    235x5 paused squats. Was going to do another set but my inner thigh was screaming there was no reason too. I was able to really sit.

    Nice slow progression. Hopefully my squat will be in the low 400's in the next month. Then I can start really working it.

  29. Missed the weekend workout. Very busy with work and the house.

    Deadlift off 4" blocks 495x3 first time ever doing these.

    GM's 235 2x8 285x8

    Reverse Hypers 3x10 6plates

  30. Bench 275 2x8

    close grip 245 2x5

    pause bench 1 inch off chest 225 2x6 I have no stamina at the moment.

    Chins 8, 6, 5

    band cross overs 3x15

    band pushdowns 3x25

    Gotta start working on some more volume.
