Nutrition is spot-on:
-beef, fish, eggs, cottage cheese, nuts, exvoo, sweet potato, kale, spinach, broc, carrots, oatmeal, a little fruit, etc.
-usually 3000-4000 cals/day split across 5 meals
-never eat cheat meals or shitty carbs (I eat enough good fat to always feel satiated)
I drink water continuously all day and stop a few hours before I go to bed. About 1 gallon a day. I'm pissing every hour or so.
Sleep consistent 7-8 hrs/night
Holding breath, do you mean while I'm doing the lifts? I hold my breath during each rep so that my spine is stable for the lift, then breath between reps. I don't know much about breathing, so this could be the issue. What should I be doing?
