Squatting barefoot better than chucks?

Was thinking about getting some squatting shoes or chuck taylors as I only have BB sneakers... Today I squatted barefoot and found it fine. I take it this is just as good or better that squat specific footware?

Fish oil - how much?

I was reading another thread on what supps everyone takes and many take fish oil. After reading some articles on fish oil I have come to find that it really doesn't benefit you until you are in the 2500-3000 mg range.

Realistic maintenance

6’2 189 Calculator on here estimates my maintenance at 2412. I’m guessing that would put me around 2800 for conservative gains. I ate at 4K for 10 weeks and only gained 8 pounds (pretty much all fat). I have since cut back to 2300 for 4 days now and and have dropped 4 pounds. I started the 4K bulk...
