    Thank ya! I made another one yesterday and used the "bake" setting as opposed to "convection bake". Turned out much better.

    Doesn't feel weird but definitely does look off. I've always had problems with being lopsided on the bench press. Need to work on technique badly. It is such a hard movement for me to nail for whatever reason.

    I changed my form a million times from 275 to 315 in 2014. I think the biggest change was.. I use my knees to touch the left & right sides of the bench.. Plant my toes while touching the bench w/ my knees.. Then slide down & arch.. Plant my shoulders/drive my lats into the bench all while gripping the bar as tight as possible.

    I think bench is difficult for you mainly because you are tall & you have long arms. You take a closer/narrower grip when I think you'd benefit for a super wide / less range of motion grip

    May try those cues out. Liking my current setup but not the fact that I have a poverty bench.

    Not often that I get called tall! I guess 5'10 isn't the shortest. I try to just place my pinkies on the rings. Have tried close grip as well as wider grip...it's hard. so many variables to manipulate

    That's the way that I'm going to try to do it. First order of business is fixing the asymmetrical foot placement. Which will be harder to do than one would think.

    Happy with this. Condensing my weekly volume a bit because I will be traveling to Florida on Friday(again! lol) through Wednesday for a family vacation and I'm only going to be training twice while I'm down there probably. So that's why I've been getting ahead of schedule this past week or so. This session is typically scheduled for Friday but I'm doing it Wednesday. Will be heading in for my typical Sunday session tomorrow (on Thursday). Will probably be training on Sunday and Tuesday while I'm down there. Being flexible while still getting the work in :-)

    Good. Was thoroughly beat by the end of this. Ready for a day or two off. Will be back in on Saturday or Sunday. Last day of my internship for the summer, packing, and then off to the beach in the morning. Time for some seafood! and maybe a glass of wine. Will be in control but I plan to enjoy myself. God, it feels good to not be dieting.

    Am enjoying it. Tracking everything for the most part except dinner every night, which i've been allowing myself to estimate. Giving myself 1200 calories for dinner every night and I have had some very nice dishes. Last night I had coconut crusted amberjack with glazed bananas w/ mango chutney + raisins on top with mixed veggies, rice and black beans. nice to have some variety in the diet.

    yours looked like a blast based on social media posts. Universal is so much fun. Went to the one in Orlando back in 2008 and I rode the incredible hulk coaster something like 14-16 times while I was there.

    Was at the beach today and the gf wanted for me to hit some poses, so I obliged! Just a tad bit over six weeks post show, and averaging a tad bit under three pounds above stage weight. Excuse the sagging swim trunks lol bought these when I weighed 180.

    Still looking pretty lean
    Nice deadlifting
    As far as the estimating calories go.. if you keep doing it that way.. it will still be consistent so I think you'll be fine

    Thanks bruh. Definitely put on some fat but I'm cool with/am wanting that. Trying to feel normal over here and not like I need to eat someone's arm off all day bahahaha. Just estimating because I'm on vacation doe and these places where we're eating are not chains. We went to a breakfast place yesterday and it appears that I grossly overestimated the food based on how I felt this morning. Just felt flat. How one would feel after a low day during a diet. Vacations force me to try my hand at intuitive eating. something that I admittedly suck at. I am extremely prone to overestimating, and thus under-eating.

    Saw some of your food pics on IG.. I would use nutrition facts from places like Chilis or Applebees or those type of restaurants to get an approximation. Burgers are super easy to approximate.. just ask them how big their angus patties are and they will know immediately.. pizza is pretty universal.. and tacos you can use any mexican taco place or use Chipotle as their burrito

    Fajitas with mahi mahi, scallops, shrimp with corn tortillas:

    probably would be what I would have if someone were to ask what my last meal would be

    Smoked salmon salad for lunch two days ago:

    This was interesting/different and really enjoyable. Not sure what the green seed/pepper looking things were but I loved this.

    Egg white, crab meat and shrimp omelet with peppers/onions with cheese grits and toast for breakfast yesterday:

    This was GREAT. Coffee at this place was also $$$$$$$

    Grilled mahi mahi and blackened shrimp w/ confetti rice, mixed veggies and hushpuppies:

    Good, but probably the worst/most overpriced meal that I've had since I've been here.

    Wish I would have gotten a pic of the amberjack meal that I had the other night but I forgot to take the picture prior to eating it :'(

    Good session. Found a place to train at in downtown Memphis before I get my student ID registered. Small, "no fluff" gym with just the essentials present. I like it. Was actually on the second floor of a building and had very little advertising. Liked the atmosphere and talked briefly to a guy who competes in PL and another who is a physique competitor. Cool.

    Second set of front squats:

    Kind of a nice atmosphere in that you can meet other lifters who are around your age, but also can suck when dealing with a lot of the douchey curl bros whose primary incentive for lifting is to impress girls. Blows me away that people still do that. but it really does happen. Hopefully won't be as much of a thing now that I'm with an older crowd. Most people in there are 25-26, I do believe.

    It's starting to come back! As you said about me with benching, your frame probably is not the best suited for it. Really do bet that you could pull some pretty impressive numbers if you trained it consistently.
