KF-- I can't believe you only take 136g of protein per day. I had thought you took 200g+. I think you used to, is it unnecessary to take that much protein? I remember when I used to take 190g+ per day at 175-185lb bw, a lot of that protein seems to get wasted and body doesn't absorb it....

protein shakes make me feel full longer without adding so many calories. that's probably the most benefit i get from eating protein shakes. i don't feel any stronger or thicker when i go very high dosages of protein.

 :headbang:

jumps in the last few months of 2017. i'm still fairly lean even at this low 200s bw but i'm not going to be doing any near max jumping at this weight. mid intensity jump squats for explosiveness but thats the most il do.

* was tired again this afternoon.

Congrats on the 455!

King, I have an issue though. This morning I tried to do a half front squat at 225 lb and felt a pain in my knee cap that was a bit sharper than i'd liked. What happened, but when i go full paused front squat that never happens.

The reason I even tried doing half front squat was because the other day the bar slipped out of my shoulders when i did a 305 front squat.
33yrs | 24in SVJ | >45% BF | 227LB | 5'9 | 7'5 reach | 400lb max squat paused | 5'8 wingspan | 26in RVJ

^ partial ROM squats are more taxing on the joints. the weight at the reversal point are taken most by the connective tissues... thats what the literature says.

* not weak anymore. must be the mental beatdown from all the 295lb singles smith pressing. skipped those and doing the reverse seated chest press. i'm not so sure how to do my double workouts around a 9am-4pm mon-fri work schedule this week. i just slept from 9:30am-4:30pm today. might go for a 11pm-5am later and lift right away. no post workout naps after then and a nap from 4:30-7:30pm to prepare for the afternoon workout. sleep again 11pm-5am. not so sure id be able to sleep at 4:30pm-7:30pm but if that works, it will be a good week.

* dry bw really dried up at 205 because of staying awake for so long. was drinking plenty of water to stay hydrated but not enough. will drink more trmw.

Calves seated calf raise soleus 6x45lb 3x2 sets, 7x45lb 3x1 sets, 4x45lb 10x2 sets

* slept 10:30pm-3:30am. bw still not as heavy as last week but did not matter. skipping the smith pressing got me very fresh. i'm doing 455s twice per day for the past few days. this stronger than the last run i had with this weight. i could 475 soon but don't want to get too fat.
* will do what i did yesteraday and nap 4:30pm-7pmand see if i feel good for the afternoon workout.

morning
Squats 315s-365-405-455#211

Calves seated calf raise soleus 6x45lb 3x2 sets, 2x45lb 10x1 sets

* felt very tired and sleepy at 2-3pm and powered thru til i get home and slept 4:45pm-8pm. bw dry 204lb even with a lot heavier breakfast at 7:30am, which probably got me sluggish for the rest of the day.
* did the 455 this evening outside the pins now. gym so busy on a leg day and had to use the power rack. did not matter. i'm still very strong when im fat.

Wed Feb 28

Calves seated calf raise soleus 6x45lb 3x2 sets, 3x45lb 10x2 sets

* slept 10:45pm to 3:45am. 455 was a little heavier than usual but was still confident enough to rep it on the outside of the power rack. skipped the double hand rowing. thats the only thing different i did. maybe it got something in my torso stabilizing muscles tired. the one arm rowing has a brace so my torso has minimal stabilizing to do.
* might try to drink coffee at 2pm today when the peak of my jet lagged hits again. only thing in worried is that it might screw up with my 5-8pm nap later.

afternoon

* 455 felt as heavy as this morning. same 4:45pm-8pm afternoon nap. bw down to 203.5lb. i'm not eating as much post workout in the morning because the food coma might be too much for me. i still have to be productive in my dayshift work training for this week. two days left so its almost over.

* 405 did not feel very heavy and could have used 455 next but the whole thing felt like yesterday. doable but had to put a good fight to do it. not good for 2x/day routine. the next 1/day routine is not until thur next week. had to refresh myself.

* a very good sleep from 10:45pm-4:30am. maybe because i'm not stressed anymore thinking about this dayshift schedule. todays the last day and i'm back again to wed-sat nights next week.
* got the 455 convincingly. can do it again later as long as my afternoon nap is just as good.

afternoon
Squats 315s-365-405-455#216

Rows lat pulldown machine wide grip 225-240-255-270 3x1 sets each
Calves seated calf raise soleus 6x45lb 3x3 sets, 7x45lb 3x1 sets

* what a good week. did 11 singles of 455. did this afternoon without safety pins again because the squat rack was busy. did not matter. was very fresh because of the much needed deload this morning. the smith pressing feels better than the seated chest machine because of a deeper bottom ROM.

Mar Week 1 of 4

Sun Mar 4

morning
Squats 315s-365-405
Shoulders smith machine close grip bench press 135 5x2 sets, 185 3x2 sets, 205-225 3x1 sets each
Back one arm cable rows 80 3x2 sets, one arm cable upright rows 40 5x2 sets
Back lat pulldown machine wide grip 225-240-255-270 3x1 sets each
Calves seated calf raise soleus 6x45lb 3x3 sets

* will stay at bw 205lb until i get a little lean. i had to gain more mass for the 455 single. getting to 475 is another level of fatness for me. might not be worth it anymore.

aftenoon
Squats 315s-365-405-455#218
Shoulders standing one arm landmine press 1x45 5x2 sets, 1x45+25 3x2 sets, 1x45+35 3x2 sets
Back one arm cable rows 80 3x3 sets, 100 3x1 set
Back lat pulldown machine wide grip 225-240-255-270 3x1 sets each
Calves seated calf raise soleus 6x45lb 3x2 sets, 7x45lb 3x1 set

* did the 455 on power rack again. no pins. not too heavy but still a crawl after the 1/4 depth up. no caving in of the mid-back so i'm still good. when the speed decay is too quick and the crawling point becomes too slow - the back takes a beating and i have to skip days to recover.
* skipped the smith again to preserve back for the heavys

Mon Mar 5

morning
Squats 315s-365-405-455#219
Shoulders standing one arm landmine press 1x45 3x2 sets, 1x45+25 3x1 sets, 1x45+35 3x1 sets
Back one arm cable rows 80 3x3 sets, 100 3x1 set
Back one arm cable high pull 100 3x2 sets
Calves seated calf raise soleus 6x45lb 3x2 sets, 7x45lb 3x1 set

* replaced the seated lat machine with the one arm cable high pull because the hip rollers to keep me from getting pulled by the lat machine is adding strain to my lowerback.
* very cold 41F this morning and had to stay in the sauna for 5 mins to warmup. this is after a 30min+ hot shower at home.

afternoon
Squats 315s-365-405-455#220
Dips bw 3x6 sets, 10x4 sets
Back one arm cable high pull 100 3x4 sets
Calves seated calf raise soleus 6x45lb 3x3 sets, 7x45lb 3x2 set

* scanned my training log to find out how i was able to maintain lifting 405+ and do things for the shoulders. dips it is. no lowerback crushing strain from pushing and as long as i don't get too crazy on the volumes, it should all be ok. might also go weighted but will probably max at triples also.

Tue Mar 6

Back one arm cable high pull 100 3x4 sets
Calves seated calf raise soleus 6x45lb 3x2 sets, 7x45lb 3x2 set, 8x45lb 2x1 sets

* got very good sleep and my nap pattern is almost solid and ready for the 4-night work week starting tmrw night. so strong that i end up exerting more because i hold the pause longer and keep the form more strict. i crawled halfway up. no back bending or anything ugly but clearly put more effort this afternoon than this morning.
* PR on the seated calf raises. the machine tops out at 8 plates. i'm more afraid of the knee pads popping off again so i had to keep the form very controlled. ROM was solid. checked it by the way i put the pin back. i cleared it well.

Calves seated calf raise soleus 6x45lb 3x2 sets, 7x45lb 3x2 set

* doing more bw volumes of the little things for conditioning and weight loss. stopping at triples and doing high sets so i can do them daily without adding too much fatigue to my joints.

afternoon

* 405 felt light and convincing enough to go 455 but decided to save the heavy for later. will add more of these light back up volumes so i burn more calories. planning to bulk up to 207.5 ish without getting very fat. no intention of pushing for 475 but will do it if its not very heavy anymore. just want to keep the 455 top set routine and easier.

* strong enough for 455 today but prefer to be leaner and do more volumes instead. burns more calories this way. i can recover from 275s triples. nothing was sore from the previous days of 275s

KF-- I can't believe you only take 136g of protein per day. I had thought you took 200g+. I think you used to, is it unnecessary to take that much protein? I remember when I used to take 190g+ per day at 175-185lb bw, a lot of that protein seems to get wasted and body doesn't absorb it....

protein shakes make me feel full longer without adding so many calories. that's probably the most benefit i get from eating protein shakes. i don't feel any stronger or thicker when i go very high dosages of protein.

same.. my final conclusion is that whey protein does absolutely nothing for me. absolute 0. I don't think it repairs anything, promotes growth of anything, or is in any way real food. For me personally, it feels completely useless.

I could drink 4 whey shakes in almond milk (not real milk, otherwise it would be effective) and it does nothing .. then I can eat 4 eggs and feel strong, recover faster, etc.

On a related note: that "3fuel" company wanted to "sponsor" me (product ambassador style), but I just can't commit to promoting their supps when I just find whey protein so useless. I mean some whey protein supps taste good, but that's about it. There's an enormous difference between how I feel eating chicken, eggs, meat, and/or milk, vs protein + water. Protein + water might as well just be water.

Also your log is just so damn nuts - pure beastmode with all of these doubles. stating the obvious, yet again.

peace!

^  yes. nothing beats the complete protein from eggs.  the syntha 6 shakes are more of a cleaner sugary treat. better than ice-cream.  most protein shakes gives me gas.

i swear by my breakfast of smoothie consisting of frozen strawberries, two scoops of WPC, big spoonful of peanut butter, water, and a banana. WPC is just protein, nothing special about it, but that keeps me full until lunch, tastes good, and gets some fruit in me. mmv.

don't disagree with the point about super high protein intake not bringing additional benefit, though. and i'm all whole protein the rest of the day.

as for gas, i can't mess with it. gas/bloating wrecks my running. I haven't noticed too much gas from protein shakes w/ water/almond milk, but I have from milk. so milk based shakes I haven't messed with in a long time.

but ya, egg protein > *

just like Kingfish's syntha6 (i've had it, tastes incredible) protein, I imagine it tastes great. That stuff I was taking, tasted amazing, especially the coffee flavor. But, I just can't feel it "doing anything". I can feel milk, eggs, chicken/steak, but not whey. It's weird, but I guess I judge it from the perspective of: if I just take whey in addition to eating good, how do I feel? If I just take eggs (or chicken or meat) in addition to eating good, how do I feel? On just whey, I get weak .. as weak as if I wasn't eating any protein. wreckage.

but ya your shake sounds good.. the PB & fruit would make me feel good :D

as for breakfast.. fu*k I love my egg breakfasts. sets my whole day up. :D
