Lunges are a biotch, but when you get used to them they can get old...you should try bulgarian squats next!

I just have a quick question;

is it bad that I am sort of turning my routine into German Volume training?



One more question;

I am thinking of upping my oatmeal in the morningg from 100g (measured dry) to 150 or 200g, is this too much in your opinion?
