Brokeback Mountain: The Director’s Bulk

I started reading it, and will read all the way through. I am on post 70 I think from 2022 so I am looking forward to reading the rest.

Obvs, you are comfortable being out so I guess it wasn’t that big of a deal for you to identify as the “resident fag.”

I still think it was powerful.

I’m going to tag you in my log so as not to blow up yours.

Back is feeling back at like 95% as of now, so I’ll be fine for Saturday. Here’s a few meals I’ve had since I’ve come back to MD, just to give an idea what my nutrition looks like when it’s not dependant on a dining hall (the bowl is chili)

@LoRez - Mid-afternoon snack, I was feeling peckish ;]

@simo74 & @Stormblessed Thanks!

For anyone who didn’t see it in the other thread, here’s a little before/after lol. Probably about an 85 pound delta between those.

I have zero idea how to push press, and randomly try it every once in a blue moon for fun. This is my first time ever getting two plates overhead and I’m pretty proud of it. Strict press felt pretty off today, but if this is my off-day performance then I’ll still have a PR single when I go for it. DB bench still progressing steadily. But the dumbbells here jump from 100 to 110, so I’m gonna spent a bit longer pushing reps at 100 than I would otherwise. Weight as of yesterday is 201, so amazingly I’ve had lost a few pounds while eating all the stuff in the food post above.

Your transformation, progress, work ethic, eating, lifts and determination are seriously inspiring. I’m sure you get this often, but you seem wise beyond your years.

@boilerman I really appreciate that :] all of the experiences I’ve gotten over the past few years from school/training/work have really helped me in that regard, I feel.
