Help from the more experienced crowd? wxfreekj 5 5 hoursTrev182 (14299): Ahh good, glad you read it. In that case, my honest advice would be to taper back the cardio slowly to 1-2 sessions a week. Would never suggest a 7 day a week program, your body needs time to recover. Pick a well proven 4/5 day a week lifting programme, along with your macros and 1-2 sessions of cardio a week and youe good to go.

2015 Contest Prep. Natty BB. 23 bwadas9 16 8 hoursBeans (1297): 25 weeks man, holy cow! Keep up the awesome work man. I'm sure the mental strain is horrible, but keep faith in your coach and yourself, you're clearly knocking it out of the park so far. It's good that you have such good self awareness you can watch yourself and not let it get the best of you.

Clean vs. Dirty eating MeganRosehart 24 9 hoursTritons (196): When i eat "dirty", my stomach hurts, i have gas, acne busts out on my face and back even more. When I eat "clean", it is the opposite. Everything feels good, and smooth in the toilet. To sum up i would like to have most of the day clean, and one small dirty meal. Or better, just make good food taste good.
Injuries, setbacks and moving the goal posts shannowman 15 10 hoursshannowman (6124): I think how strong my back has gotten gives me real hope as I get back into deadlifts.

12 reps heavy weight vs 20 reps light weight thephenomenon 8 13 hoursSalokin (127): Paul Carter wrote an interesting training article that worked under the following concept: A lifter with an everyday one-rep max (this is a max you could get on any given day of the week, not you're all time best) is typically able to lift around 63-65% of that weight 20 times. For instance, 300lb max bench, you can typically lift about 195lbs 20 times. He then recommended a training program where you pick a weight that is 10-20lbs above your...

benching in a slingshot? csizemore21 12 16 hoursWinnersNeverQuit (8169): From what I understand it overloads the top and helps with taking resistance off the bottom. If that's the case, why not just buy bands? Adjustable loading and can use it on deads squats and whatever else you want.

I have a bro in law thats a chiropractor maybe I will give him a jingle see if he has any idea.

Straps Vs. No Straps Beans 8 2 daysBeans (1297): @wannabemuscular I use hook grip, so the hand position wasn't too different. Never had a grip problem, but I was doing sets of 3 and my grip was failing after 2 without chalk. When I used the straps, I actually found the lift harder, but my grip was fine. I guess that's true about transitioning away from them. I just always assumed it would be easier to lift more weight with them.
