I have read the two link. There is some good information.
I plugged my 5 rep maxes into a spreadsheet that was posted on the Madcow wacky hq page. 4 weeks seems like along time until I get back to what weight I was lifting. Hopefully it will be beneficial.
I have been tracking my calories since I started training with My fitnesspal, I will probably continue to do so as it's not too difficult.
ATM I am hitting a little over 150g of protein a day. I will keep a close eye on the scale.
I am going to have my first madcow session later today.Are good mornings a suitable substitution for extensions? I won't always have somebody to hold my feet in place.
