it's cheese
and probably 2 teaspoons

the breading and the cheese probably added an absolute maximum of 200 calories

plus the chicken which looks like it's 4 oz or 200 calories

the entire piece is probably 400 calories

I feel bad for most pple in these threads. Beginners programming for themselves / doing cookie cutter programs.

Feeling like shit most days and not explosive at all? Well stop doing heavy squats and pulls so often.. Also too many waste their time doing full lifts all the time - they're not the best way to leanr technique / power production in different positions.

People with powerlifting / strength training background don't really understand how to get better at this sport.. It's just getting your absolute strength up and trying to survive your snatch / C&J sessions for them.
>>
Bump
>>
>>41619965
with numbers like those, how can you stay motivated to continue?

I mean, people are snatching 200kg+

do you seriously believe that you will ever accomplish anything? or do you have some other motivation? surely not strength/muscle building? since you have none?

I'm confuse
>>
>>41620846

I feel bad for everyone in this thread who's actually training the classic lifts when they could just do some fucking pushups and some sprints and get more athletic than they ever would on barbell ballerina training sessions.
>>
>>41622471
kek, m8y

there is a reason europe/nordic countries always come in last place in sprints

because they neglect barbell training and believe sprinting will make you better at sprinting

when in reality it is much more effective to develop huge leg muscles via BB squats and then use them for your sprint training.. at least murica trainers know this much

how do you spot someone much taller on a squat? some tall guy today asked me to spot his squat and because i'm much shorter he always brushed his ass on my dick on every rep he did

Is Macron really 5'8?

I always thought 1/2/3/4 was 1x bodyweight, 2x bodyweight, etc. this makes a bit more sense doesnt it ?
>>
>>41621283
Nah, it's pl8s. 4x bodyweight deadlift is world class. A 70kg guy would have to deadlift 280kg. Does that make sense to you?
>>
>>41621078
One responds better to Intensity(strength) other to Volume(mass), weighted resisted training can get you both, however the longer you do, the more specialized it gets, but keep in mind it is a fairly specialized activity so quality of stimulus is necessary. Don't fall for the 4x8-12 is for mass and 5x5 is for strength rep scheme meme.
>>
>>41621078
mass is potential strength, strength is effective use of existing muscle.

How do you guys devour one gallon of water per day?

>>41620472

you know its 1gallon per 22kg of bodyweight
>>
>>41620472

I chug a 500ml bottle every 90 minutes. I had alarms set on my phone until it became habit. I'm only 5'10 and 165lbs so I piss a lot.
>>
I do more than a gallon a day. It isn't that hard and I've done it for a while. What makes it tougher is when you are working a lot and can't drink every hour so you get home tired and trying to hydrate even more. It's easier to get in a gallon a day if you are consistent and just drink water..

16 cups = gallon. That isn't that much at all

Ha yes less than 20 years ago), denying them education, jobs or anything that might actually help them become actual citizens, but still giving them widespread access to weapons. Great job America, the land of the free!

They are not denied an education, nor have they ever been after slavery. The blacks today, their parents and grand-parents all were discriminated in favor within the American school system. Their great-great-great grandparents, were not slaves, how is slavery a larger factor than the myriads of institutions designed to help them exclusively that exist today? Laws are made to specifically to help them, alone, Affirmative Action was created with this in mind and it exists in many forms.
