    1 pound per week is definitely too much. Go slower if you want to stay lean.

    1-2 pounds per month would be ideal for lean bulking. That can also help with the bloating.

    Thanks for the details but yes that makes it a bit harder to talk about. If you were indeed bench pressing 110 lb dumbbells at 186 pounds in the 8-12 rep range with good form I would be very...

    A week? That's seriously low volume.

    Do you mind sharing your lifts and bw?

    Try going slower. 0.5 pound per week would be fine. That will be hard enough to keep lean.

    You mean you're gaining strength in the medium rep ranges over multiple sets on your main lifts? That would surprise me given how long and serious you've been training.

    That would be fantastic...

    Thanks for sharing. Nothing in the review reads to me as ridiculous.

    Like Heisman mentioned the only way to know how it affects your cholesterol is to get tested.

    But raw eggs in a protein shake? I can't imagine it improves the taste. And besides the potential...

    Yes. Even if we ignore the differences in omega 3 quality, fish also offers high quality protein, vitamins and minerals.

    For example: one portion of salmon can easily contain 200% RDA vitamin D,...

    Maybe the context of what I posted wasn't clear. Someone else said that the risk of dying from covid for someone with all 5 risk factors was less than 0.2%.

    I didn't know you were 235 pounds and cutting. It seems like you're serious about building the best physique you can so I would advise 160 gram minimum. An occasional 140 gram (0.6 gram per lb)...

    Well 0.7 g/lb includes a safety margin.

    It's equally bad with deep frying though.

    Well, you're moving in the right direction.

    But really, you're not even bench pressing your body weight for 5 reps. Of course you won't look like you lift yet. Keep going, keep gaining 1 to 2...
