I know you are excited to see results, but...

Re: Recommendations for a squat / power cage

Carlos, I do and would continue to do most of my CF WOD lifting outside of a cage. I am interested in a cage for squatting and benchpressing during a SS program. The pull-up bar is just an added...

Re: Advice on tweaking zone/IF?

How tall are you, how much do you weigh, and what is your estimated body fat %?

Forgive me if I am wrong but I remember you stating in an earlier thread that you had some bodyfat to lose.

Re: Recommendations for a squat / power cage

Thanks, Howard.

Do you own this cage or have any experience using one? If so, is it steady and sturdy?

Recommendations for a squat / power cage

I have looked and looked for what I should get but without being able to see what I would be ordering, I am a bit timid to drop a large amount of cash on a cage.

Can anyone give me a...

Re: 5 Weeks of Starting Strength

Congrats, Aaron.

Had you recently been training or focusing on the lifts you quoted prior to the SS program, outside of CF WOD's?

Have you plateaued on any lift?

I too am interested on how...

Re: Getting Started on SS

Good advice, Derek. If you are looking for maximum benefit from a SS program do the program as written. Everything included and excluded is done so for a reason.

The program is wickedly effective...

Re: Recommended Reading List

Re: Just to make sure (zone diet start)

Your math is correct. If you weigh 170lbs and you have 11% body fat your LBM is approx 151lbs.

I would use the methods described in the book to establish and track your bodyfat %. The number it...

Re: A gallon of milk?

Re: A gallon of milk?

If you desire to gain lean mass at a rapid rate, are willing to follow the rest of the program, and don't have an issue digesting milk - you should be fine.

If there are any studies that show any...

Re: Zone Pains

When eating in "the Zone", all protein sources are assumed to be "lean".

So when you see ground beef on the list it means very lean ground beef. The standard protein block assumes 1.5 grams of fat...

Re: Sanity check. A few weeks in the Zone - how am I doing?

Ah. I vary my protein sources more than my initial post would lead you to believe. I eat mostly chicken, a lot of tuna, some salmon, some lean beef.

Re: oranges

Oranges are a great fruit to eat for paleo or zone or both style eating.

They are in the list of favorable carbs for The Zone.

Re: Zone Diet Question

You would take the prescribed number of blocks and eat that number of blocks but broken up over 6 meals instead of 5.

For example if you were prescribed 19 blocks:

5 meals could be eaten as...

At the Zone site I punched in your numbers and the calculator spit out 20 blocks for "very active" and 18 for "active", based on your LBM. 22 blocks would be for an "elite athlete".
