    Perhaps you should wear a track suit to the gym if your delicate joints get cold

    Diet and nutrition

    Yeah, we'll see how I go. I don't have much room to drop calories any further so I will probably have to cycle calories back to maintenance for a week (once weight loss plateaus) before going back into a deficit again.

    Running a pretty huge calorie deficit at the moment, not finding it too difficult either. Performance has been pretty good for the most part too. Ripped 3 180kg deadlift singles this morning.

    I feel ya mate. When my weight got up to 95kg I took my 1RM squat from 135kg to 160kg and boy oh boy did I have to grind out every single one of those extra kilos. Spent a lot of time experimenting with different foot and bar positions to get it there. I don’t have the 160kg lift on camera...

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder I suppose, to me (barring genetic freaks) getting to a 4 plate squat demonstrates a genuine commitment to weight training that isn't to be sneezed at. And given the amount of flogish douchbaggery and time wasting I see from PTs and other half witted...

    If you think it's a cake walk for everyone at 130kg bodyweight to get to a 200kg squat you're absolutely deluded

    LCHF- Low Carb / High-Healthy Fat lifestyle.

    Fair enough, but that kind of marketing spin would send him into a white hot rage diatribe if it was coming from one of his 'opponents'. Just seems very hypocritical.

    Layne loves to call out psuedo scientists and conmen in fitness, then starts sprouting sh*t like "carbon takes out the guesswork" What a hack

    Science/Environment Wuhan Coronavirus (COVID-19) - Pandemic Declared

    Not sure how you can come to that conclusion given that a) the dramatic outbreak in Iran is a direct result of them lacking the political will to stop arrivals from China b) the spread of the outbreak within the Shengen Area is due to freedom of movement
