    Good work David. You might want to check concept2australia's youtube channel, they have some good instructional videos: https://m.youtube.com/channel/UCkwGwHw10fL_8JvXUAPi3tQ
  2. Snap, Crackle, Pop

    I used to have upper back tightness and the occasional pop. It seems to be gone recently, and while I've got no science to back this up, I believe it might have to do with two things: - I keep a balance between pressing and upper body pulling (rows, pull ups , chin ups), maybe with a slight favour for pulling - I frequently press behind the neck with a wide grip Both seems to help my thoraic mobility.

    Good to see your spirits improving! You'll find ways to do lower body resistance trainig, I'm sure, and you're in good hands with JS, it seems. And since you like the rowing machine, you should check out what boat clubs are nearby. It's an awesome sport (albeit a little technical, so prepare for some initial frustration... it will pass ).
  4. I might be missing something, but if you're hungry after 12am, something's off. If you're serious about losing fat, and keeping, or even gaining strength, you shouldn't be awake at that hour in the first place. There's plenty of science on that, here's a start.
  5. Can't stop a ghost, not even with a silver bullet. I think the key words are "stick" and "working" As for different sets of people: of course we all need to eat and sleep, injuries are a real issue (and more so for older lifters), and overtraining is likely a thing for very advanced trainees. But I don't think it's something we need to be concerned about while squating and pulling below double BW.
  6. Interesting discussion. Personally, I've come to quite the opposite conclusion. When I was lifting 3 days a week (SL5x5), I was hurting much more, and I felt beat up most of the time. It wasn't even muscle soreness but rather tendon pains. Now, I train much more frequently, up to 7/7, but I go heavy(ish) only one or two times per week for each movement. The sessions are shorter, and easier to recover from. I think you can train most days of the week, or even every day, even with compound lifts, and particularly when your max squat and deadlift is still under 2xBW. Of course you'll need to be smart about it and you can't hit >80% intensities every day. It should also be obvious that you cannot add 5lbs every day. I think that a huge part of strength gains for novice and intermediate lifters comes from improving proprioception and unfucking your movement patterns, in other words: learning the movements. Strength, particularly in the washed up lifter, is very much a skill. In order to develop this skill, it is important to get as many good reps as possible. Grinders don't help much, in fact they are rather detrimental. But of course there are many ways to skin that particular cat ETA inb4 lykantrophic magic recovery

    Sounds like he's having lady troubles... Did his wife leave him or something?

    That's crazy. Everybody knows that the only appropriate food for babies is black soup.
  11. Follow Simon's advice, he's the resident dieting wizard I you're serious about weight management, tracking calories is your best route, at least for a while because it will help you get a grip on what you're actually eating, and what your body actually needs. The experience you gather from that will be very valuable once you've reached your goal and want to adjust for other goals (like clean bulking or just maintenance). "Diet plans" usually just work by tricking you into eating less without the actual math. This being said, don't get overly obsessive about it. You're not gonna lose your gains because you miss your protein goal, you're not gonna blow up because you overeat once. As for calculators, I think this one is one of the best. It helped me cut from over 125 kg to just above 105 kg within about 6 month (moderate lifting 3 times per week, hardly any cardio, some HIIT and hill sprints). Another interesting tool is the Body Weight Simulator. The best article I've seen so far on weight loss is this one, check it out. As for protein, 200g is doable, but I'd say probably not necessary in your case. From the stats you gave, I'm assuming you're shooting for a lean body mass of about 70kg - 75 kg. Consequently, about 120 g protein per day should be sufficient even in a caloric deficit. If you prefer to err on the high side (like I would), go for about 150g, that's plenty.
  12. Need Ur Opinion For This Strength Program

    Check these videos for the ab rollout, which can be done with an ab roller, or a barbell, an EZbar (probably even with dumb bells )For the back, you could do back extensions. And if you absolutely can't do any squats but machine squats, you should probably incorporate some farmer's walks and suitcase walks. Actually, you might want to do them anyway...
