i’m on creatine

i went from lean at 185-190 to lean at 195-200 and sort of stagnated there

my hair is dope

you only need it if you’ve plateaued in strength probably, i’d try eating more first then go the creatine route

its effect is mostly in short/medium term strength improvement

with strength improvement comes hypertrophy

it works, dunno about hair loss never had any on it

not specifically training to do anything atm, still incorporate the basic bodyweight stuff in with my weight sessions. been stuck working a lot so I've been doing 3 hour plus full body gym days then taking like 3 days off. arms have gotten to a decent size and finally have some decent pec development(wasn't really training them right for a while).

every time i go on a cut i lose like 4lbs then get less strict and put it back on. being lean makes calisthenics so much easier and I'm too heavy right now but just doing things like push ups, chin ups, dips when you're heavy makes it like you are training with a weight vest so when i do cut 10-12lbs my numbers should go up a little bit.

been wanting to increase strength too, keep seeing these like 95lb amateur female powerlifters reppin weight that I can barely move and it's weird. i know since they do nothing but those 3 lifts that they're obviously going to be good at it but I should have a bit more crossover strength. i mostly pull sumo and bench 2-3x a week when i do some PL but don't do it that seriously and i don't do heavy squats cause of some minor knee issues.

wouldn't mind being able to nail a backflip, maybe I'll start the progressions on that.

how bout you, speakers? what are you working on?

still working on holding a straight line handstand and a full front lever

the dream is an l-sit to press handstand/hspu and full straight body 360 on the rings (pull into front lever, rise to inversion, lower to back lever, lower to german hang, all with straight arms, under control)

i'd also like to start seriously training for a planche but i think training two skill at once is enough

there's a new class at my gym that is focused on gymnastic style calisthenics and it's great fun, i imagine we'll get to back flips eventually (been lots of tumbling stuff so far)

but yeah what you said re: not strong enough/too much body weight

nice, looks like you're making some decent progress.

forgot to mention that my right heel needs to get checked out, haven't been able to run or do any kind of jumping in about a month, which has made cutting weight a little harder.

i did buy some fat gripz and was doing some strongman stuff with it, it makes things like farmer's walks really hard, gotta use weight 10-15lbs less than normal.

I was talking to this dude about supplements and he said glutamine is essential. I'm not reading much that supports this being a wonder boost, and I don't need anything more than what I'm doing, but am curious if anybody does it

+ caffeine and this is exactly where i'm at

well and zinc, but i wouldn't say it's essential, it's just a supplement that's actually a supplement

don't track or care but it's probably around 50% carbs, 30% protein and 20% fat

i gain muscle(and fat) pretty easily so i don't really care too much about protein, a gram or two per lb like a lot of lifters do seems nuts to me, doubt i go too much above 100g most days. i weigh 175, no interest in ingesting 350g, I'll just let my kidneys have an easy job

i don't give a fuck about macros and i dont lift but i upped my protein and my recovery from runs is night and day better. hardly sore at all now.

i was getting very, very little most days.

i wrote off macros completely when losing weight because THEY DON'T MATTER FOR THAT in spite of podcast nerds and redditors saying different. protein seems important tho! if you do anything strenuous at least.

My first meal today is at a vegan restaurant, eating a brown rice tempeh bowl with avocado and a raw cheesecake for dessert. I'm already near 130g of carbs, get at me
