Re: Problems with throwing out bread

Well, oatmeal is processed and I think that is even unhealthier than bread... It has a lower glycemic/insulin index than bread that's why it's often preferred. mark, breakfast is very important both for brain and for muscles so you should start eating it again. That breakfast is important is one of...

Re: Possible adjustment needed

If you switched most of the program from BB to DB, the total weight you move would drop, i.e. you would remove muscle maintenance/building stimulus from your prime movers. It's easy to see why if you try overhead pressing with DBs. For the other lifts, this might be less obvious and there are except...

Re: Resumning workout after injury...

There are some lifts that put stress on the shoulder and the rotator cuff, the back squat is likely the most obvious one.

Re: Problems with throwing out bread

I think oatmeal is a popular choice for BBs. It's uncommon where I live, and not worth the effort/cost IMO. I've tried substituting muesli with milk for oatmeal, then eventually gave up breakfast altogether. The basic problem with it, is if you don't want your blood sugar to hop on the roller coaste...

Re: Possible adjustment needed

I love my DL and Rows they are the only exercises I feel like I do well and progress at a normal pace so I don't want to take them out. Let me clear this up: I would leave out the DL from the volume increase . It'd be folly to suggest dropping the DL. OTOH if you added sets to every lift in your ro...

Re: Possible adjustment needed

use dumbbells with some different exercises does this make any sense? I'm going to join the choir of "no"s, but... remember that time I suggested that you added more volume instead of obsessing over 1RM? So after e.g. you're done with your SL press sets, do some light weight presses. You can do tha...

Re: Intermediate 5/3/1?

Thank bam for that quote, I was just about to say that down sets can be quite crippling. Also, coming from SS/SL and such we aren't adapted to high volume, and me I don't adapt as quick as a kid. (remember me saying in the other thread you have free rein to kill yourself with assistance and I prompt...

Re: Nutrition

For Omelletee and Scrambled eggs, start low, That's what I do too, I don't want the yolk to solidify before I've finished opening all the eggs. As for stirring, I wait for the albumen to get all white (this should be sped up by breaking the white as soon as thickens and making the clear part slide ...

Re: Intermediate 5/3/1?

Then I get defensive and shift from having fun thinking about a program to trying to prove something. No need to, everybody's just trying to help you. Honestly I wish I had that much constructive feedback whenever I start a new thread :lol: Relax, do things the way you want and have fun :thumbright:

Re: Nutrition

Canned fish usually is already cooked. BTW by cooking it again you're likely to kill its omega 3 content. Something that may help you to get your veggies more tasty. Take a skillet. Pour EVOO. Heat it up. Hotter is better but not so much that you hit smoke point. Cut garlic or onion, and throw it in...
