  1. Nasty pictures in the spoiler below for those interested. Turns out the blood splatter and pumping from wounds that matches your heart beat that you see in horror movies are pretty accurate. One of my camp wizard shirts has a bit more character now. Again, warning about nasty wound pictures in the spoiler. Don’t click if you’re not ready to see that stuff.
  2. 3 meals a day, but it’s because I’m on a cut. If I ever start a bulking again, snacking will definitely be involved to fit the volume in. One hypothesis I read as far as protein goes is that even though plants don’t have a ton of protein, they have a bunch of free floating amino acids that your body uses similarly. That source proved to have a very poor basis in science as I read on, so I’m not sure how accurate that is. Logically it could make sense, all kinds of herbivores get big and strong off grasses. Anyway, this weekend went pretty well for IF and calories. My sleep got off track a
  3. From the vegetarian diet in general, yes, but not from the black beans specifically. I have gas whether I have them or not. It’s starting to lessen, so something my body had to get used to via proper enzyme production and such maybe? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Got to sleep early last night and did great with IF, though I probably went a bit over calories. Still haven’t gotten around to reading about a athletic vegan diet, but with jumping to a full can of black beans for lunch, I’m hitting those protein macro goals. Yesterday’s workout: Mid bar Squat 135x8 185x5 235x3 275x3 Belt up 325x1 375x1 425x1 (10) this is too heavy, my form is slipping and I’m cutting depth. Can’t believe I squatted 500 at one point. 325x7(8.5),6(8.5),6(8) Erg, tabata, damper 6 1022m, 69kcal Started to lose vigor part way through round 5, but finished all 8 pretty strong. F
  5. Better stretch/engagement from the increased range of motion. I’m supposed to put them back on for the higher rep work, but haven’t been worrying about it. I’ll do that again once I’m doing multiple volume sets post cut. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Nailed all 3 goals yesterday aside from actually researching vegan diets for athletes. My 5 year old made pizza bagels for dinner as she learned the recipe in her school’s cooking class. Yesterday was supposed to be a rest day, but I wanted to get in the gym and move, so I just took it easy(ish) Dips/decline sit ups 10/13 14/10 12/7 Tricep rope push down/standing dumbbell curls 70x15/40x18Rx18L 70x14/35x14Rx14L 70x16/30x17Rx17L Treadmill, 0.5° incline, 6.7 mph, 9 min (7.5) Treadmill, 15° incline, 3mph, 11 min (6-) Broke a 9 min mile pace on the treadmill, so that’s awesome. Let’s were fee
  7. Anxiety blows. Finally getting a handle on mine for the most part, but alcohol and dark rooms are definitely helpful for low level self medicating. Watching you do this Coan program makes me shake my head with a smile on my face. Those speed DL days are so masochistic when you keep a rest timer, used to kick my rear in Juggernaut.

  8. That last post was supposed to be super long due to work it logging, but I decided to drop that in a second post. So, here’s the log since 2/14: 2/19 Mid bar squats 135x8 pauses 225x5 295x3 Belt up 365x1 415x1(9.5) 315x8(8.5),8(9),8,(8.5) Erg, damper 6, 4 min tabata Fried after 5 rounds, just surviving last 3 996 meters, 67kcal 2/21 Overhead Press 95x10 115x3 135x1 Belt up 155x1 175xF+3PP(9) 140x8(10) 130x8(10) 120x8(10) Deadlift 135x8 205x3 275x3 345x3 Belt up 415x1 Shoes off 485x1 545x1(10) 415x7(9.5) Treadmill, 0.5° incline 6.4 mph 0-12 min 6.5 mph 12-19 min 0-10(6),10-16(7),16-19(8
  9. Be a better faster: I’ve been doing great here during the week. I’m down to 251 as of today, so almost back to that 250 goal. Getting under 20 lb to finish a solid motivator. Getting through the 240s will be hard due to my next major milestone being 238 lb, my weight before my wedding. There’s nothing between now and there. Goal: all the days so far within an 8.5 hour window Be a better quasi-vegan: I haven’t read anything, I really need to get on that, but I’ve been doing great as far as keeping meat and cheese out of my diet most of the time. The only time I didn’t do so was at two
  10. I feel like I see you all the time because of your Instagram. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I survived my first boss fight doing exactly this, teleporting the boss to the far side of a burning oil patch to buy time to heal up. That comic hits home way too hard. Kids have been waking up a few minutes earlier each day due to the sun and cutting into my time. I’ve started getting them ready then letting them watch tv for 20 min while I finish up. I’m finally doing some quests and leveling. The stun mechanics currently seem abusive at times, then I remember I’m usually outnumbered 2 to 1. I’m currently rolling with the base two characters, the demon hunter mage, and just swapped
  12. I only just got through the tutorial dungeon, but the combat interactions are incredibly intriguing. Different spells interact with one another, such as dropping a meteor then setting the oil patch it leaves on fire when you hit it or an enemy on it with a fire spell. You can also ignite poison clouds, or electrify steam. I haven’t gotten deep into it, have managed to wipe my party on accident a few times while experimenting, but it’s been great fun. Really looking forward to seeing all the different interactions. The combat itself is all the goodness of a tactical system that unlike. Moving
  13. I haven’t bailed out on here, my work computer bricked and formatting is a pain from my phone. I’ll update tomorrow challenge wise. Gamewise, I enjoyed it a lot more with the saw weapon and group to the dual wolves the other morning before accidentally pulling both. Tried to keep fighting, but need to learn to be conservative and bail and come back vs fighting in those situations. Giving it a break for now and started Divinity Orginal Sin Enhanced because I apparently bought that instead of II on accident. Planning to bounce between the two.
  14. As Grumble said, it can be scaled all the way back to body weight. When I say use any implement you want, I really do mean any implement. To experience the feel of the exercise, I’d suggest a broom stick. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Oh yeah, great way to get nursemaid’s elbow. You could just go the full body bubble wrap route. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
