I feel better about my tuberware! Your diet info was a roller coaster man. The list of things you couldn’t have??? But seeing what you can have and every thing is in olive oil that is not soo bad. I am going to look for amaranth, that looks really good.

BEAST MODE


#986

LOL, yeah man! I should have stock in Pyrex I use so much of it! I try to find a balance to be honest. I eat that way most of the time, and like I said, for a couple meals each week I eat what I want. It isn’t like I explode if I eat a cheese burger or something, it is just the next morning I will wake up and the areas I have psoriasis will be much, much more inflamed looking. If I can eat really clean, the patches will reduce dramatically. I have also found things like brown rice noodles that have really livened up my diet and allow me to eat more diverse foods. It really isn’t that bad, as long as I stay creative with it-- and I would say the biggest downer is the inconvenience of having to cook 90% of everything I eat. Otherwise, I eat really well, and my body seems to respond very well to the foods that I am eating. It really is insane how much diet affects our health and physiologies.

Yeah, I love the amaranth, I eat it plain by the cup full every day. You should be able to find it near all of the quinoa, spelt, buckwheat, etcetera in the store. Google it if you get some time, I’m surprised more lifters don’t eat it.

Wrapped up Week 23, started Week 24 and everything is going well. Have not been very motivated to post in the last week.

I have been trying to save up for a new mountain bike as my old hardtail has been so badly abused it is time for a new one. I think once I can start riding trails again I am going to cut my lifting back to 2 or 3 days week.


#994

Mountain biking is so much fun! I’ve never done it with a good bike though. Any recommendations for a bike that is worth it but won’t cost me an arm and a leg?

How you plan on changing your programming if you go back to 2-3 days a week?

Dude I’ve squatted 4 days in a row now, just to see what that’s like. I think I’ve been missing out. I think the Squat 5-7 times a week thing actually works lol. You are definitely right about high frequency gets you strong as fuck.


#995

Yeah, the Raleigh Tokul 3 is not a bad ride for $1000, you can go a step or two down for less money ($500), but you lose out on the components. With mountain bikes, you get what you pay for and it largely depends on what you intend on riding. If you don’t ever see yourself getting into more of the serious stuff you don’t need to spend a whole lot.

I really don’t know, I will have to figure that out when the time comes. It will probably be some type of full body for sure. I have made great progress with my physique over the least several months, but my strength has dropped. Diet is so important depending on what you want to accomplish in the gym. It is frustrating not being able to own the weights like I was doing, but I feel so much better and look better.

Yeah man, I dig high frequency training. It isn’t for everyone, and you definitely have to stay on top of your mobility and recovery stuff-- otherwise it can run you into the ground over time.


#996

I love the idea of Squating daily but by day 4 I am into the ground. I think if I had better auto regulation it wouldn’t be that way.

I still love it for pushing through a plateau though from time to time.


#997

Yeah, I’ve experienced a similar thing as well. It is real easy to go super hard every day (ambition), and then its too late when you realized you’ve over done it. The challenging part sometimes can definitely be holding yourself back so you can get in there and do it again the next day, and the next… and the next…

HAHA, YES! I was just making a comment the other day with some friends about how a red dwarf’s life span can be 10 trillion years… thats 10,000,000,000,000! Puts our lifetimes and issues on earth into perspective.

178 pounds today. Going to try and log my stuff more consistently. Had several weeks where I had to go out of town, came home, was sick the next week, then the next week sucked in the gym. Whateves… I love to just lift.
