Diet wise… I read they took Casey to a “greasy spoon” a great deal to load him up on calories. The term “greasy spoon” is for the average AMERICAN DINER, a school friend told me, who was an exchange student from the U.S.A.
I agree with DIPS being a better chest lift than BENCH PRESSES, same as DEREK. I feel a better quality stress through my chest and also my triceps thrive off them.
When my brother and I used to train together, we used to eat tons of DInty Moore Beef Stew. It’d come in a little can, was over 600 cals, lotta prot, lotta complex carbs, and a good amount of fat. It was the utlimate bulking food -lol. It was also pretty damn cheap at the local costco (buy a pack of 4!).
I’l agree also, that Dips are probably one of the best chest exercises. I’ve never been able to do them due to a bum shoulder, and I’ve always viewed my weak lower chest as a result of that (try to do some dec. dbs when I can though, but still can’t get the full stretch w/o some discomefort). Use 'em if you can!
Canned food is great. They have low fat low cal for the people who need to lose and higher cal for the people that need to gain. With a good mixture of pro, complex carbs like veggies and potatoes you cannot go wrong!
Have you tried the HS dip machine? I use this machine now as I can only do full ROM dip with my bw once but this machine puts soooooo much blood into my chest and triceps; it just feels amazing.
