    Quick question. Well a couple of questions.

    Is Organic really better then conventional? I am talking all produce.

    Does removing Red Meat from your diet really benefit you more so than it doesn't?

    uh,...organic vs conventional? conventional as in? synthetic?

    if you plan on building muscle, Idk how you plan on building it without protein.
    protein as in red meat and dairy.

    Time for the monthly progress pic! 2 months until cosplay time! (well, hopefully. It's being made and shipped from the Philippines, if it doesn't get here, then whatever)

    I consume so much liquid throughout the day (<3 my water) that sometimes the gut will seem bigger than it really is, but I still need to cut as I spent most of February slacking off due to being snowed in and the gym being closed. March is going to be the month where I truly get back on track.

    Organic food has no universally accepted, proven benefits over regular food. If you're trying to support your local farmers or some shit, then go for it, but beyond that just get the cheapest shit.

    As far as red meat goes, if you can get the fat and protein from somewhere else, it's probably healthier. That said, red meat is delicious and isn't gonna kill you.

    Seafood and poultry are denser in protein than most cuts of red meat.

    Zercher squats are easier than both front squats and back squats. Your folcrum can hold a lot of weight

    Zercher squats burns your core and your quads.

    I do them on leg days. To deload from back squats.

    Zerchers, squats, dl's, bench, clean and press. These will make you big.

    I want to go eighties and get bulky

    Taking a small break from kettle bells since i fucked my wrist.

    Curling 100 felt so easy yesterday. I definitely am way stronger than last year. That standing military press had me feeling like ultimate warrior.

    Blah. My cardio comes from the warm up routine and grappling.

    Will go for that rusev look

    Get started on that grip training bruh. I found that I can join the college's Judo club for free because I am a spouse of a student, lol. Been hitting the gym heavy to get where I want to be. Also been incorporating a lot of wrestling stuff into my Judo mentality.

    Is there some truth that your muscle will turn to fat if you quit exercising? It seems like I only hear this from people that were fat to begin with, like it's an excuse to not exercise in fear of just becoming fatter. I would imagine dudes get man boobs from eating like a slob after they quit exercising and playing sports, but gaining fat doesn't directly correlate to how much muscle you had before.

    I am trying to add beets and cabbage to my diet but i can't find a recipe to use them in to make them both delicious. Might give up and make them both basic salad.

    I been tryin Quinoa pasta and this thing is alright.

    Borscht uses beet and cabbage. I've never eaten it though, only heard and learned about it.

    Pffft, I had to do my short cardio session after gym. Was shoulders day, which I did but I wanted to a little something after.

    6 hot girls asking me workout tips is the reason I missed it.

    Tried something different, wanted to cry. Also please tell me I'm not the only one who hates burpees?

    I been tryin Quinoa pasta and this thing is alright.

    I been doing quinoa casseroles (like two boxes of quinoa pasta, then i fry up some ground turkey, tomatoes, zucchini, peppers, mushrooms, tomato paste, red onion, then pour that on top of pasta in 3 large baking tins, then i add mozz cheese on top, and bake for like 20 mins), whenever I get cravings for pasta. It's actually quite good that way. Lasts me a long time, and easy to take to work to have small bowls of, during my shifts.

    Food poisoning takes a real toll on your body. Been taking it easy in the gym the past few days.

    I've really tried to hone in some good shoulder development and started doing my research; turns out I've been doing everything I do for my delts wrong lol.

    Some videos that have helped me target all the heads:

    Side delts with lateral raises :

    I'm a miscer but I've never understood the love for Jason Genova. Can someone explain for me?

    Also as you guys know, I've been lifting again and it's been about almost 3 months since I got back into it. I'm getting a lot of my size back and I'm already up to 170 lbs (keep in mind, I'm a manlet and I previous bulked to 172 and then cut to 152). I believe I was around 160 when I started lifting again, muscle memory is a hell of a drug since I look really good now. I plan to get all my size back and then cut again for Summer.

    My strength is coming back but I've primarily been training hypertrophy instead of powerlifting. I think I lost my drive for powerlifting, I don't think I'll ever be as strong as I used to be + I weight more than when I used to powerlift simply because I have more muscle on me as well. A really big part of my motivation for powerlifting was so I could cut to the 148 lb weight class and set a national record for my deadlift but I don't think I'd ever be able to get that low again anyway so what's the point? Since I'm getting my size back, I'm also trying to work on some of my inconsistencies which are my forearm size and calf size. Anybody have any tips regarding those? I'd honestly be down for an entirely new leg routine since my legs are really strong, just not really big :/ They have size, just not the size I want.

    I finally went back to the gym today, and I must say I felt out of place being at one that was outside of school, since the majority of the people there were very fit (I'm tall and rather slim/built but evidently not formed as a Greek God). On another note, I've recorded my progress and worked with upper body stuff, and can now leg press 60 lbs. over twice my body weight. It's not a great feat as the guy before pressed 900 or so, but it's an accomplishment I suppose. I will say activating the glutes and not just the thighs and hamstrings during hack squats is a feat, though, as well as the core itself. Never could activate the core muscles.

    Concerning the upper body, I did low rows, overhead presses, lat pulls, and incline chest presses. I could've went heavier, but I was being self-conscious about looking like the gym-newb idiot.

    I could've, but then figured never using a free-barbell rack, I'd probably break my back out of incompetence attempting to squat what I've done before...or started at a bearable weight.

    Start doing some bodyweight or kettlebell squats and then move to doing them with the barbell.
