    Sounds like you strained an adductor. I think honestly take a couple weeks off from weights, do some tempo bodyweight stuff and lots of stretching. Maybe try out some heat packs. If it really doesn't...

    It took me just over three months iirc, right about 1.5lb/week on average. That was a solid rate, I felt fine and maintained a lot more of my strength on the way down than I'd anticipated.

    Agree with above. 300-400 calorie surplus puts you at near 3 pounds per month, which will add up real quick.

    Veggies are your friend. Whenever I'm dropping weight, my plate is pretty much a bit of fat, a decent dose of protein, and a fat pile of veggies.

    Which experts tout that recovery and growth all occur within a 24 hour period?

    It depends on far too many things to make a blanket statement like that.

    When you say "lasts", I think you mean "is significantly elevated above baseline". MPS does increase quite a bit following a workout, peaking like three or so hours after iirc, and then pretty...

    Thanks! Very good to hear lol. That's what I thought, but tbh I've had a really tough time figuring out exactly where the hip crease is when I'm not wearing a singlet--I'll probably end up doing all...

    415 squat for a new PR moving ok--this is comp standards in term of depth, right? In the past during training, I've tended to bury squats more than necessary and I'm now putting more effort into...

    Congrats! While 43 pounds might not seem like much over three years, it's a whole hell of a lot better than gaining 10-15--which from the sounds of things is the trend that your weight used to...

    Just find ingredients that fit those criteria and blend them, honestly. That's the beauty of shakes / smoothies. Having a lower carb day? Cut the oats in half. Need to bump up your fats? Add an extra...

    Bent over rows are hard af. Don't compare them too much to your other lifts imo.

    Just keep training them. Lower the weight and get your form locked in, guarantee you'll feel better about them

    Could be worth seeing a doctor or PT about. Favoring one leg more than the other is pretty normal, but if you're getting discomfort in your knee you should try to get to the root of that problem...
