    Depends on your goals and what you can handle. Some people will get sick with big meals before training. It is smart to have simple carbs around workout and more complex later in the day. For performance try having a EAA drink with some carbs intraworkout. Preworkout I'd take some sodium down and hydrate properly, sodium either Pink Salt or Iodized Salt, half teaspoon would work but work up to it as salt can give you the ****s. Postworkout have a carb drink with dextrose and fructose with some electrolytes

    Carb cycling could be smart, but if you are bulking I'd try to keep calories still high as you want to recover on your days off so you can hit it hard on training days. If you drop carbs down, up the fats and/or protein. Make sure you keep hydrated well and electrolytes.

    I trained fasted for years, recently I started intra/post carbs. Very simple, karbolyn and 1/4 of raisins = 75 carbs. It definitely changed my workouts. Also, I drink my EAA while working out. Forgot to mention, sea salt also intra. Then 75 carbs post (food). I will consume 50 carbs for lunch, 50 carbs for dinner. That's on a training day. A non training day is 150 carbs per day. It works for me. I'm getting stronger, packing on muscle, and staying lean. Keep in mind I train at 3am . This plan works for me.

  4. ^^^^ forgot to mention. ..I keep cals the same for training and non training days

    Fasted training can be nice, but isn't really super magical for sure. I found taking some yohimbine while fasting to be a good mix, though if your workouts are long you will feel like you hit a wall eventually.

    Nice to see you too mannnn I've been all over.
    Had my trip to thailand and had some fun over there fighting, but once I got back my lifting got really serious and totally changed up my lifestyle, even did some programming/coaching for some people ie. sports, powerlifting, and bodybuilding in person.
    Lots happened, though I feel much more educated and experienced in short.

    Need to shed my muffin top then I can start working on size!

  8. Squat looks decent.
    Maybe a video of a weight that was more difficult for u to perform would be better.
    75% of your max for a set of 5.
    Are your hand s wrapped around the bar?
    The bar is up high correct?

    A lot of people find wrist straight with hands against the bar allows you to keep the upper back tighter compred to hands wrapped aroind the bar and wrists bent.
    Lowering the bar down your back an inch may make it easier to move weight. But nothing wrong with high bar.

  11. I find I can keep my back straighter with the bar a little lower
