A straight answer from someone who is a similar build (just add a couple of inches and 10-12lbs) is that it added too much fat, thankfully it went away quite easily though when I did HIIT. so I did retain some bennefit from 6-7 weeks of it. I did only do about 1/2 or 3/4 gomad though as I had alrea...

The insulin spike is something you may want imediately after working out because your muscles are starved for glycongen and primed for an infusion of protein. That is the ONLY time in which you want an insulin spike. Any other time, especially when in a calorie surplus, as you would be in a bulking...

depending on the individual, GOMAD can make you pretty damn fat, however if you're training hard enough you'll also put on slabs of muscle. you can bump your calories up by just adding fattier meats and oils to your existing diet. Follow-up question. I thought that the insulin boost from the milk w...

Is GOMAD right for me?

Hello again. I'm 6', 190-195 pounds depending on the day. I'm also built strangely - broad shoulders, broad hips, and long monkey arms. My diet is a fairly strict paleo, averaging about 2200cal/day. I'm currently doing a modified SS routine with the following numbers: Squat: 245 Deadlift: 265 Bench:...

Can deffinitly be a flaw in your form - just not getting tight enough. I was called out on this the other week doing speed squats. I had about 60% of my 1RM on my back, but played around with form from an empty bar an up before getting to 60%, so this was plenty, but the bar kept jumping up and bas...

Squat Question

Hi guys. Lately I have found that when I squat I'm getting a lot of explosive force behind the lift, and sometimes at the top of the squat the bar is "popping" off my shoulders, perhaps a half inch or so. Is this a negative thing? It does not appear to be affecting my form. It's an accelleration thi...

I see more veins and so forth in my hands, feet, and arms, but nothing else really. My waist size hasn't changed in several months (32"). What I have found is that my weight fluctuates greatly from week to week, between 190ish and 200, depending entirely on how strict I am with the carb intake. I th...

I would suggest that you keep doing what your doing and see if you like the effect it's having on your body. I expect that you're building muscle. Give a month or so. If you want to lean out a little, experiment with fasting prior to your workouts. I wouldn't be worried about your day after appetit...

Can you touch them whilst seated on the floor?

Yes - it's pretty uncomfortable though, right behind my kneecaps.

What do you need this flexibility for? There can be a fine line between "flexible" and "unstable". I also used to do martial arts (I wasn't as flexible as you describe). We used to do stretching that I would never consider doing now. In particular, rotational stretching of the lumbar spine can be d...

I train around 1800hrs. After workouts I normally have a protein shake with some coconut oil and water, then shower - then after my shower, I'll sit down and have 2 or 3 hard boiled eggs, maybe some steak or chicken or something, a ton of veggies, etc. I definitely get warm and stay warm for a while...

Paleo - Off Day Nutrition

Hello. I've been eating a pretty strict paleo-style diet (protein shakes are the exception) since December. I've lost about 50 pounds, putting me at about 6', 190lbs. Now that I have started lifting again (3 weeks in), I am having an experience that i just wanted to run by folks who have done someth...

Full Body Flexibility

Does anybody have any links to full body stretching "programs"? I want to incorporate an hour or so worth of stretching on my rest days. I took martial arts for 8 years when I was younger and was incredibly flexible by the time I stopped. Now that I'm older and bigger I want to work on getting back ...
