  1. Wow this looks amazing. I have had a lot of success with the Physiqz pyramid program https://physiqz.com/powerlifting-programs/bench-press-pyramid/ but just ended that last week. Is there any way I could get a link for this spreadsheet as well? Would love to try it
  2. Can confirm, rucking is a different strain on the body but still very useful towards this goal.
  3. I am pretty lazy so i usually eat plain oats with a water-based protein shake. But I'm cutting down right now. Otherwise it would be a breakfast shake with more stuff in it (PB, fruit, etc.) for more calories.
  4. I have tried IF in the past and personally used BCAAs in the morning before my workout. I'm not sure if that was the correct way to do it, but it worked well for me. Just my .02
  5. Agree with everything you said. Just speaking from prior experience. Either way, as long as you are in a calorie deficit that's what matters for weight loss
  6. have you taken a deload at all? doing so before your peaking phase with that 1 week time could be a good idea depending on how hard you have been training up to this point
  7. Dumbbells would definitely be safer but why not trying to find a squat rack and set the pins so that they would save you in a catastrophe? You can also just not add clips and do the good old barrel roll. I think you should try to find a way to safely do bench if possible.
  8. great post. all that any of us can do is to get a little better each day
  9. I would definitely recommend a wholesome blended shake you can make for way cheaper and it would be healthier. just throw in oats, peanut butter, protein powder, fruit, a tbs of olive oil--you're set and that's easily 1,000 calories. If you drink that 1-2 times per day and eat normal meals, you will gain no problem.
  10. 2-3 pounds per week is a great, solid pace to lose weight without sacrificing any chance at building muscle while losing fat. Also losing too fast can lead to a whole host of other issues (skin, stretch marks, etc.)
  11. I always have a great feeling after lifting, but I know what you are referring to--that "runners high". The only times i get that from lifting is a) coming off of a deload or b ) a REALLY tough workout. It's hard for me to generate that feeling most of the time for sure
  12. I would be doing regular pushups and knee pushups--if you can't do any more regular, then switch to knee. That would likely be the best way to get the most out of it
  13. people hold fat in very different ways it is tough to say what area would be affected most/first as you lose weight.
  14. You should try to see a doctor asap, asking this on a forum isn't going to give you the best advice for your situation
  15. yeah that is definitely enough, especially if you are focusing on squeezing your chest
