Alright - back from a much needed vacation. Here we go.
So I've been busy trying to work on my new website on top of training and eating right. Vacation had a few days of more than the normal drink or two, but nothing crazy and I ate right keeping my ketones above 1.0. I added a little content to the website to include a resource guide (which of course links to this forum). I always welcome any constructive criticism or guest writers to the site a well.
This past Monday I did a just pad mid-way strength test. Squat is up from 240 to 270lbs but my bench did not budge from 215. Apparently this is common on bench as there is that drop during the initial stages and the chest is a much smaller muscle group than the muscle groups the squat engages. Everyone, to include myself, was impressed with the 30lb increase in squat weight tho. Especially since I lost 11lbs during the study (which is not the goal, it just happened) I now transition into more of an olympic weightlifting type training for the remaining 4-5 weeks of the study.
I was reading the post
and have found some interesting touch points that I may experiment with once I complete the study. But before I get too far off topic here, let me post my numbers
