315 X 3 this morning, good form, moving up next cycle
Weight cut to 221.

Goal: Weight 195, DL 405. Eating lots of Salmon and Quinoa boys.
Any reason for quinoa instead of some nice white rice?
Variety I guess. Perception that it is healthier. I await your pro tip.

It may have a few more micro nutrients since it’s pretty unprocessed, but most white rice is going to be fortified by vitamins anyways.

I’d have to look at quinoa more closely, but I suspect the shell is going to be similar to the shell on brown rice which is loaded with phytates which actually block the absorption of said vitamins and can hinder protein uptake as well.

If you’re looking to feel more sated than white rice may leave you, potatoes are a great diet food and you’ll get as many carbs as a cup of rice from 8oz of a baked white potato which is going to be much more filling and digest much slower.

White rice, white potato, oats, and sweet potatoes are the carbs of choice for athletes.

Don't forget the steak and eggs.
Steak packs it on, but doesn't take it off.
:notsure: since that's an old school bodybuilding diet for fat loss.

It may be but my personal results are better with poultry and fish than beef and pork.

Poultry and fish are going to be lower fat than beef and pork. Can still lose weight on the beef and pork, but requires pulling fats from other food sources in your diet, or pulling carbs. You also have to eat more of those meats to hit your protein thresholds since a higher percentage of their weight is made up of fat.

At my leanest for my contest last year I was eating 8oz of 93% lean ground beef, and 3 or 6 eggs every day, but YMMV based on your metabolism and activity level.

Both of which suck compared to yours I fly a desk, I'm 50, and my thyroid does not pump out the thunder. But I'm listening. Part of this is my chick is seeing a dietician for some inflammation issues......we are on a limited diet in terms of what we can eat (I'm cooking, being supportive) while we slowly re-introduce things to check for how it affects her.

Here's the permitted Brotein: Turkey, Venison, Lamb, Chicken, Salmon., Sole, Clam, Cod, Pinto Beans, Mung Beans, Lentils.
I ordered Venision Tenderloin :waxer: expensive and ground venison. I love it, always have, she likes the Tloin but :disgust: on the ground.

:notbad: I enjoyed venison the few times I ate some that my uncles had killed.

Red meat and eggs definitely aren’t a must.

Using iodized salt on your food to help support thyroid function? If not, add some in. Iodine deficiencies are a huge cause of thyroid issues, and most people don’t realize that and thought they were being healthy by cutting out salt or buying fancy pink Himalayan shit.

I use Morton Kosher Salt, which is not Iodized.

If you’re due for bloodwork soon you can ask them if they can check your iodine level. But I’ll bet by just adding it in the next time you get bloodwork done you’ll see a better thyroid function.

Shoulder felt a bit better today doing my presses. Threw an extra 10lbs on the hammer machine I use. Lost some reps from last week, but I’m still well above my rep goal. Compound movements like that I target sets of 8 to 10 reps. Shoulders are an area that I know I personally respond a bit better with higher volume sets, so I backed down on weight a few weeks ago, and I’m taking every set to technical failure so get higher reps instead of stopping at 10. Today I had 2 plates on each side of the machine and hit 17, 12,11,10 then did a drop set on that last one with a single plate on each side and banged out 12 more reps with that.

White rice is so much better than quinoa. It's really funny when you compare nutrition of white rice to brown rice or other fad grains that are no better in any way other than marketing... and white rice is actually enjoyable to eat.

Started cycle 6 this week and beat my rep goals for squat and bench.
In three weeks I'll pull 350 on deadlifts and officially be out of weight to put on the bar.

Fuck meeeeeee.

Lower back is a bit tweaked from sitting in shitty chairs on the beach at that concert on Sunday. Felt it rack deadlifting Monday, so decided not to squat today. Instead I did all unilateral (single leg) work.

Started with leg press. 3 plates each side, 12 reps each leg, rest, repeat. Did 4 sets of that. 5th set I went down to 2 plates per side and just alternated legs with no rest, 12 reps each. Went back and forth 3 times, then on the 4th when I didn’t think I could get another 12 with a single leg, I hit it with both legs for a final 12 reps.

Wanted to call the workout after that, but pushed on and hit Bulgarian split squats, single legs extensions, then lunges. Dead.

Week 2's of 531 are boring. Hit 205 on the BP for 8 when shooting for 9 and squated 325 for 7 when shooting for 7. Finished up with some volume work on the BP and squat.

Week 3, more PR's 215 on the BP for 5, was aiming for 7 but no bueno. 340 on the squat for 6, was aiming for 6. Last one was pretty ugly :doe:

Thursday I aim to pull 350. Then I will need to buy more weights.

Skipped rack deads yesterday. Dude got on the rack just as I was ready for it, so figured I’d throw them in at the end of my workout as a finisher rather than wait around. Came back to them and hit a few warm up sets but my lower back was not happy with them so I called it a CNS deload day and Walked away from them before I hurt myself.

Personal record at 135 on the press, and 350 on deadlift. I'm officially out of weight to put on the bar.

Nice work. I just failed on my first DL attempt at 325. Weight cut to 216 doe.

Part of the problem was grip, only bar available was a little fatter than the usual.

Fat bars always fuck me up. Might be time for you to get some wrist wraps. No reason to let your grip strength limit you back workout.

I typically wrap up for anything over 315lbs when I’m going for reps
