Power Clean + Power Jerk Worked up to 60x3+x3, then doubles up to 85x2+x2 x2sets C.

  4. https://pubs.rsc.org/en/content/articlelanding/2018/fo/c7fo01683b#!divAbstract Abstract Coffee is a widely consumed beverage worldwide and is believed to help prevent the occurrence of various chronic diseases. However, the effect of coffee on skeletal muscle hypertrophy, differentiation and the mechanisms of action responsible have remained unclear. To investigate the effect of coffee on skeletal muscle hypertrophy, mice were fed a normal diet or a normal diet supplemented with 0.3% coffee or 1% coffee. Coffee supplementation was observed to increase skeletal muscle hypertrophy, while simultaneously upregulating protein expression of total MHC, MHC2A, and MHC2B in quadricep muscle. Myostatin expression was also attenuated, and IGF1 was upregulated with subsequent phosphorylation of Akt and mTOR, while AMPK phosphorylation was attenuated. Coffee also increased the grip strength and PGC-1α protein expression, and decreased the expressions of TGF-β and myostatin in tricep muscle. Coffee activated the MKK3/6-p38 pathway and upregulated PGC-1α, which may play a role in promoting myogenic differentiation and myogenin expression in C2C12 cells. These results suggest that coffee increases skeletal muscle function and hypertrophy by regulating the TGF-β/myostatin – Akt – mTORC1.

    Did some Lu raises (up to 5kgers x15) and banded external rotation presses with an orange band. Partly to give them a try, but also partly to do something about my left shoulder because it's been fucking killing me. Gonna see my PT on Tues. I need to get it sorted out before my next meet.
  6. Just saw a news story last night saying that CVS is planning to sell CBD products. All topical (for now).
  7. 1000+ squat and 900+ DL in the same meet. Raw.
  8. The consistency of her lifting is fucking nuts.

  11. There is some pretty interesting recent research on alternating periods of dieting and maintenance vs straight dieting. In one study, the group that alternated periods of dieting and maintenance had a much lower drop in their RMR vs the group that did straight dieting. Does anyone know if there's any research on "reverse dieting" available? This seems to be pretty popular right now for restoring RMR.

    It takes a bit of practice/experience as well. You have to be familiar enough with your lifting to implement RPE.

    RPE to me equates to reps left in the tank. RPE 10 would be knowing that's there's no way you could do another rep. 9 is knowing that you could get one more rep for sure. 9.5 is when you think you maybe could get another rep but you're not sure. Other folks prefer to use the term RIR (reps in reserve). RIR 0 would be an RPE 10, RIR 1 would be an RPE 9, etc.
