    You can be there (200#) in six weeks or six months, and if it were me, I'd choose the latter. My suggestion: keep tracking; add weight very slowly (I like averaging my daily weights once per week and...

    I put recipe in quotes, because it's so simple:

    1 cup of quick oats
    300g almond milk (unsweetened kind that's 30cal/cup)
    10 crushed almonds . . . these are a MUST for me
    splenda/vanilla...

    Your food journal didn't show any oatmeal recently. Not a fan? If you are, let me know, because I have a 400 calorie simple "recipe" that I make occasionally that's 2 full cups of mostly carb...

    According to my calculations ;-)
    A 155x5x5 should calculate to at least a single set of 5 with 163 or so which calculates to a single @ bodyweight which = 1BAD-DUDE!!!

    Great job, Brad.

    Energy in = Energy out + Change in Body Stores

    This is essentially just a restatement of basic thermodynamics, since energy canít be created or destroyed, it all has to be accounted for in some...

    You can't argue with success! I will occasionally wear a heartbeat monitor with my Garmin watch, and it too will estimate the calorie burn. It estimates the expenditure from walking to be very close...

    I agree with the others: Strong . . . VERY STRONG!

    I can't recall asking you: how do you calculate the calories burned? I'm assuming some type of tracker, because it seems to vary slightly in...

    This isn't a recommendation, per se, but I'll let you know what I'm doing and that I like it. I was doing 5/3/1, but the last set of always going-for-broke left me beat up. Now, I cycle my weights...

    I'm a huge fan of walking, but I don't see many on here doing it. Between walking and riding my bike (I have a short out-and-back with a legit ONE MILE hill that takes 30 minutes and burns ~500...

    Lots of 20 rep sets. Are these for CV health / endurance training or do you like these for hypertrophy too?

    Maybe it's the unilateral aspect of using a pair of dumbbells, but I have much, much better MMC with dumbbell (chest) work than I do with barbell work. I've never used it as my primary chest...

    As an older lifter, that's what I didn't like about 5/3/1 . . . you're always going to failure on your last set which kept me feeling "beat up."

    Thanks for the reply.

    I've never looked to see what makes it different, but my wife and I have been buying parboiled rice. It's still an uncooked/unboiled kernel, but it's less sticky when you're done.

    Interesting. I've been using the Stuart McRobert philosophy of microloading your way to new PRs. Could you expound on why you prefer the bigger jumps?

    Sage advice there!!! Reps on spread.


    I think it was the article about the ~165 lb guy who benched 400+ lbs that stuck with me: significant change requires significant time and that there are no...

    This has got "WINNING!" written all over it. I've reviewed my journal before, and I see periods in which I "bulked" when I was too darn fat to begin with ;-) You've dialed your diet in so tight,...
