BTW, you are looking solid brother. I'm liking the leaner you.

I also am starting to think I have a forearm fetish. I want meat on my forearms too 🤣
Thanks. It’s draining to lean out.
The forearms are mostly from work, not working out. I pull weighted ropes frequently, and climb towers every now and again.

I also get compliments on my forearms. They are just genetic mostly. I think it comes from how you hold/grip stuff. I use my fingertips more than the palm of my hands.

I'm still getting my shit together.

Only so much money to play with every month.

Probably start bulking November or December.

Naw, not genetic. I just pull on weighted ropes at work or climb towers. Those forearms grew in the last five years.
Calves are genetic tho

My 7 day average is up 1.25lbs over the previous week. Im up about 7lbs for the month so far, but I think the first week was purely glycogen being pushed into the muscle since I went from low carb to high carb suddenly (no transition).

I'm on par with trying to gain between 1.25lbs and no more than 2lbs per week.

Keeping my fingers crossed for a good bulk.

Yesterday was another rest day for me because I went out of town for another wedding.

But after some cheat meals: lunch and dinner j thought I looked like an absolute unit with thickness.

Also ordered a 12 pound bag of ON Serious Mass weight gainer powder, for when it gets hard to get in the calories...

You know, if you just win the quarterly iron giants, then I would have shipped you some for free! 🤪

I'm taking this week off. I haven't had a real rest week since I started at the beginning of the year. I will extend my blast by 1 week to account for this.

My plan is to cut calories by 300-500; I will still be slightly above maintenance even with this reduction.

I also intend to roll out my shoulders, lats and rotator cuff using the ball end of a tricep rope, roll out forearms and triceps using a barbell, perform dead hangs, and some mobility/yoga stretches for the delts and lats. I also plan on focusing on hip opener stretches, wall squats, and a few other things.

I don't expect to be healed, but hoping I'll feel a little better and have more comfortable movements with some rest, stretch, and tension relief.

I only posted this up in case someone else has similar pain points/tension, and is wondering what other people do to *try* to feel better.

I did that daily for years. Because I just couldn’t do the calories otherwise, may jump back depending.

Called it my “big dog food”.

How did it sit in your stomach? I can't do my oats shake, sits too heavy, too much fiber. It would be counterproductive.

It would be fine, I drank it before bed.
Otherwise a little gas bloat but tolerable: some mornings I did it before work.
