    I did this back in the glory days of high school... I started by doing just the negatives, lowering myself as slowly as possible. Took me a few months to work up to doing them legitimately.

    Well, I guess you can't really take a sexy, half butt cheek exposed picture under a bar for a glute bridge better than you could setting up under a bar in the squat rack.

    I personally hate squatting so I'd never brag about it. (Used to love/hate it in high school when I could squat 250#...now I struggle with 1xBW)

    I thought you were trying to eat more than 2000 since you are doing a ton of cardio for triathlon training? Does the trainer who gave you these numbers know about your activity level?

    I was gonna add that you have great glutes for bikini.

    I agree with you, this off season put a little more size on your shoulders to even out your top and bottom and you'll do exceptionally well.

    The only difference fasted versus non-fasted training will make is whether you feel like you have energy or feel sluggish because of a full belly. It's a personal preference.

    I did a 9 month bulk as that fit my competition schedule. I bulked hard so not sure I would've went much longer because I was getting pretty pudgy. I had gained about 20#.

    It's probably and increase in GI contents from eating more less calorie dense foods.

    There's no reason to keep carbs low when trying to gain muscle. You need more energy to lift heavier weights.

    Muscle doesn't burn that much more calories...about 6 calories per pound. Unfortunately it's our hormone production and bodily functions that determines our metabolism.

    You definitely want to go into your race a bit heavier. Plus, fat helps you float better ;). I did my first half-iron in the middle of contest prep and it became difficult to maintain balance in the...

    I didn't do that much cardio when training for my ironman. That is quite a lot and you should be eating WAY more than 1800. There is absolutely no way that you gained 3# of anything other than...
