I think "clean" eating is overrated. You can eat what you want, as long as you're not an idiot about it. Moderate and you're fine. I don't eat clean, but I eat smart. If I know I can only eat 2300 calories in a day, it'd be wise to stay away from Burger King. Calories and macros are what matters to me.

Skipped the gym yesterday, so today is legs and shoulders...I like the leg press and leg machines. I also like squats, deads, and other "real" movements. I know squats and that type of stuff is better b/c it incorporates more muscles and whatnot, but I think machines and presses have their uses, too, especially if you're wanting to target and isolate specific muscles. I did read a thing on bb that said machines aren't ideal for people who workout for sports/running/etc. because those isolated movements counteract natural movements you'd make in a game, where squats and stuff like that are movements you would make in a game. For me, my sports days are over and I'm working out 90% for aesthetics (the other 10% is for "late night" activities with the fiance ) I like to start a leg day with real movements like squats and deads and then go to machines to isolate dafuq out of my quads and hams

When prepping for your next test, don't use supplements. If you can't use them pre/during your test, don't use them to train for the test. Or just find supps that won't affect your bp

I don't give a FUCK about micros.














haha jk. I eat plenty of vegetables and 1 fruit (an apple) per day...I should probably incorporate more greens, as my only source of green vegetables is 1 big ass salad at lunch, but I hate them, so that's pretty much all I'm willing to do. Other than that, I eat a vegetable with every meal and 1 apple with my breakfast. I hate sweets, so I'm not too crazy about fruit....I should probably get a multi, but I hate seeing my pee change colors and think they're complete bullshit anyway lol

This guy came in with one of those bench press shirt things today and I tried it out...benched 335 with it...now, if I could only do it without the shirt lol

1. Sorry for the grunting...I usually don't do that, but it was heavy as shit
2. I know the form is extremely sloppy. I've never worn one of those shirts before, so that, plus the fact that I was benching 335 caused the bar to sway a lot
3. Please don't make fun of my small calves...I'm very sensitive about it

Exactly, what difference is a shirt going to make? The shirt doesn't automatically add strength and muscles for you to be able to push more weight.

It forces your shoulders forward and doesn't let the back of your arms stay parallel or beyond. Until about half way down (and half way back up) its all muscle, beyond that point, the weight is actually forcing the shirt to stretch.

Lifted in one once... had busted blood vessels all over the place and it took 30 minutes to get it on and off. This guy helped - Mike Belk. I think it took 450 for the shirt to stretch enough to touch my chest that day, which I (at the time) could do raw. Now I don't go any higher than 365 for a set of 8.

The shirts don't make you stronger...but they do assist and allow the users to push more weight. They should just be banned from any form of competition. All it does is give someone a reason to discredit your lift and the stronger lifter is still going to win (most likely).
