Well I almost got my 405lb dead lift. Pulled the bar off the ground and got it about mid thigh but could not lock out. I was pissed but happy I got it off the ground. Still some more work to do but I'm close.

Ive put on almost 3kg of muscle in the past few months since I started focusing on my squats and gymnastic training.
Im sure some amount of the gain was fat but it was very little from what I can tell.

Young friend of mine was telling me about the amount of money she just dropped on a PT for an 8 week course.

She described the diet he has her on to lose weight,which is 40bucks more than she would usually spend. Plus protein bars.
She is quite a small person so I genuinely wonder if the amount of protein she has described is going to give her problems.
Ah well. Wait and see I guess. I would bet that the diet was either sourced from bodybuildingforums or Mens Health though.

that sorta thing seems like such a last resort to me.

Oh dont worry. She is eating all that aswell.
4 eggs+turkey bacon every morning for starters.

but, I guess what i'm saying is, of all the ways to supplement your diet, why not an extra egg, why not a shake with water, what is it that makes bars a good option? usually they're overpriced and the texture and taste are certainly not among the best options.

I agree 100%.
Now personally,if I have more than 2 eggs for about 5 days on the trot, I have a few gastric issues so I tend to replace with other stuff, but your point spot on imo.
What I want to know is how this guy calculated that this girl needs this much protein?
On top of her brekkie yesterday she had 2 chicken breasts, 2 turkey breasts and cottage cheese as a snack. Plus a protein bar after training.

Im whining here about it because its not for me to say it to her, I just hate people getting ripped off.

maybe he's pushing her really really hard?

even when I had a really physical job I never ate that well, but I also wasn't bulking at the time.

maybe her goal is Kardashian-ass.

Yep. He seems to be.
She has shared with me her goal, its purely fat loss. Her amount of muscle mass is not that high so Im dubious her body can absorb all of the protein she is spending money on.
The amount of protein we need seems to get generously rounded up when sales of protein products are involved.

maybe he thinks just quick recovery times depend upon that resource, whether or not the exercise is fibre-tearing/muscle-growing.

or, maybe he is ripping shit up with high rep weight training for fat loss (she'll mostly just get great stamina). doesn't endurance training break down muscle fibers just like higher resistance training?

Maybe.
That doesnt change the amount of protein a human body can process though. There may be more requirement for reair but after a point, more protein does not equal more muscle repair.
That threshold is lower than many people think (according to the actual data) and so Im dubious that this girl is going to be able to process everything she is eating based on her size.
Without the numbers (which are none of my business) I cant say for certain ('certain' meaning as far as my amateur interest in the subject goes) but it does set my bs detector tingling.

I have two goals now.
1) try to be able to do three sets of ten chinups (I'm at 3 sets of 6)
2) kick the diet soda habit.  I am not worried about the artificial sweetener, it's more about resetting my pallet and sensitivity to sweetness.  I think if I can do that, it will reduce cravings for junk food and unhealthy foods, and make salad more palatable.

Hang a weight around your waist when you do pull ups. Even if it is only 2-3 reps. Then  on your last set do it without. It helped me a lot. I was doing about 50 reps in 4 sets after awhile. Just keep at it and don't forget to rest a few days between workouts. I would add(If you don't do them already) Lat pull downs too. Oh and keep upping the weight too as you go along.

Knocked 4min off my 10k in 2 weeks!
Quite pleased!
The longer, slower runs (up to 90min on my feet) seem to be what made the difference. I had been focusing too much on shorter, higher paced work.

Since starting my latest blood pressure medicine (amlodipine, now along with hydrochlorothiazide which I was taking alone) my BP has been much better than it was, and as a beneficial side-effect, I'm able to exercise at a higher subjective and objective intensity. That is, on the bike I'm going a bit faster, and when jogging I'm able to go a bit longer between rest breaks. It feels like I'm working harder, which makes sense, because I am. But my pulse is not going any higher than it was before, and it takes longer for my pulse to rise to the aerobic target zone. I consider that it's a good sign when my pulse rises more slowly, and also a good sign that I can work harder than before at the same pulse rate. My pulse also falls faster when I begin my cool-down, which I believe to be another good sign.

I also feel better generally since my BP has come back down to a healthy level. No more feeling as though my brain isn't working quite right.
