Anyone ever do the gallon of milk a day for bulking up? Sounds gross IMO. But does seem like an easy way to get the calories.
When I was on a push to be 220 I was around 3/4 - a full gallon a day. Its really not that bad. I absolutely love milk. I just found that I was sacrificing food for milk, when the idea is to have milk to be a supplemented part of your diet.
yeah I did about 3/4 a gallon today. I just basically chug it down at the end of my meals. I'm sure I'll be sick of it soon lol
I could drink milk with any meal. Love milk but a gallon a day is a lot of damn milk. Even if you have it with each meal.
ugh I would be ****ting my brains out
I'm mildly lactose intolerant. large amounts of milk make me crazy gassy. I might look into lactose free milk
I haven't really tried to figure out maxes ever, but since I'm doing the 5x5, I'll use those numbers.
Bench - 215
Dead lift - 325
Squat - 185
Why is my squat so low? Also, by the following day, my arms feel pretty good after benching, my chest is a little sore but by day 2 it's great. My back feels tight-but-awesome the day after dead lifting, and my posture is excellent. I struggle to walk for 2-3 days after squatting usually. It's in my thighs; they get super tight and don't want to move to allow me to walk and such. Any ideas? It's not terribly painful, just an annoyance, really.
Your squat is low because you allow it to be. Most people just don't know what they're capable of. Lead with the mind, the body will follow.
I've been using this and it helps me tremendously...
As well as doing a warm up as suggested above before the workout (not including warm up sets of the actual exercise)
I've felt that this one helped the most with warming up for squats...

Hit 375x5 on Deadlift with solid form. Morale is high in the gym for me, no injuries, things are looking up.
Failed today on some weak sauce ****. 110lb overhead press failed to get 5 reps (only got 4) on 2 of my last sets. so I got 3x5 and 2x4.
It was definitely a lack of energy and not a lack of strength but I was pretty dissappointed after the gym today. I think waiting 3min in between my sets would have helped squeeze the last 1 out.
About 2 hours later I attempted the same weight and was able to pull off 5 sets of 5. Should I keep the weight the same next workout or add 5lb like normal?
deadlifted 455x6 tonight. pretty easy actually. not feeling any stronger yet, hoping I get the surge in the next few days.
