Currently shovelling PB in my face like an animal

2018-03-28 19:48:05 UTC  

@BryceB-ND I squat 5x a week

2018-03-28 19:48:26 UTC  

Hahaha I've been doing between 3-4k calories a day I'm back up above 140lbs from 132 about 3 weeks ago.

2018-03-28 19:48:35 UTC  

Seems like way too much to me. You're doing oly lifting 3 x a week too? What's the point.

2018-03-28 19:48:46 UTC  

get strong AF is the point

2018-03-28 19:49:59 UTC  

Recovery time is paramount.

2018-03-28 19:49:59 UTC  

Won't work if you have no recovery time.

2018-03-28 19:50:16 UTC  

My messages are duplicating and taking forever to send

2018-03-28 19:51:16 UTC  

I give you props for getting in there 5x a day doing strenous days like that. And hell if you're the genetic 1% and it works keep at it. Props.

2018-03-28 19:51:27 UTC  

But for most it wouldn't be optimal.

2018-03-28 19:53:14 UTC  

I am the 99%

2018-03-28 19:53:16 UTC  

@Der Seeteufel - SD And nice man, keep going.

2018-03-28 20:57:01 UTC  

Thanks for sending out the discord for lifting. Haven't been to the gym in a few months but decided today was the day to get back into it. Much work needed but one day at a time.

2018-03-28 21:23:25 UTC  

That's the exactly right attitude brother, and we're all here to support you jumping back into it. Glad to have ya.

2018-03-28 21:27:59 UTC  

It helps that I'm a thinner guy so I don't have any fat to work off, but the "skinny lil bitch" look isn't what I want to see in the mirror anymore haha

2018-03-29 00:13:28 UTC  

@Krypto- OH I feel your pain man. My peanut butter and whole milk budget is off the charts. Start tracking your calories. If you're anything like me you'll start eating way more to try and hit your goals.

2018-03-29 00:17:51 UTC  

I eat really clean and only drink water other than milk with my fingers so I'm gonna have to mix it up. I'm gonna gain it's just gonna take a lot of prepping and dedication. Let me know how it's going for you, maybe we can brainstorm and find a good ratio.

2018-03-29 00:18:09 UTC  

Milk with my dinners hahaha

2018-03-29 00:22:14 UTC  

Try peanut butter, oatmeal, whole milk, and chocolate whey protein shakes. Throw in a banana for a little extra flavor. I do about 24 oz of that after every work out and I've slowly but surely been gaining weight. I started at 132 and now I'm consistently above 140.

2018-03-29 05:10:25 UTC  

Squatted 325 for 3x5 and benched 245 for almost 3x5. Hoping to get up to 400 lb squat before the semester ends.

2018-03-29 05:14:13 UTC  

Is that a race to 400 I hear, @BryceB-ND? 😋

2018-03-29 05:31:27 UTC

2018-03-29 05:33:00 UTC  


2018-03-29 05:34:12 UTC  

After I cut, Ima just do stronglifts 5x5 for awhile

2018-03-29 05:34:54 UTC  

I have a tendency to overtrain all the time, so ima do something simple like that, and just eat

2018-03-29 17:13:24 UTC  
2018-03-29 17:13:56 UTC  

Honestly though I think I could 1RM 405

2018-03-29 17:14:03 UTC  

My knee would just kill me

2018-03-29 17:20:31 UTC  

What's the criteria for it? I'm hoping to 3x5 405 by end of the semester.

2018-03-29 17:20:41 UTC  

I think I could probably 1 rep it already too or pretty soon here.

2018-03-29 17:21:17 UTC  

Either way, You're all on. First unofficial IE mine's better than yours lifting competition is a go.

2018-03-29 17:25:31 UTC  

Might as well go for the triple. Bench, squat, and deadlift. See who can get the highest weight 😎
