I've been reading the Nation for around 8 months now and boy has it changed my life/outlook on many things. So far I'm down to 227 from 273 around 10 months ago. A big reason for the change was my mothers twin, he is around 330 and suffering from congestive heart failure among other things so I decided to stop fuckin around loose weight. But I have a couple questions.
When I squat I find it more comfortable to have my heels elevated around an inch or so in order for me to go ATG. Is that normal or do I just need to stop being a big puss and get more flexible.
Also, I just started drinking a protein shake before my work out. Is this advisable or should I be eating/taking something else.
My ultimate goal is to reach 200 and then I can start training for strength instead of losing weight. The main program I have been using is TC War Room Strategies to Maximize Fat loss, which seems to be working well.
P.S. NO FUCKING CURLS IN THE SQUAT RACK!!!
