Sept 18th - Chest/Tricep

Cable Flies - 30x8 35x8 35x6
Incline Bench - 115x8 115x5 135x3
a set of dumbbell flies bc i felt like it 35x8
Dumbbell Press - 60x8 65x8 70x5
Skulls into close grip - 65x8 70x5 70x2





Eating massive plates of rice and bowls of pasta on campus so i'm not intensely tracking calories. Right around 2500-3000.

I have a question; how much rice do you usually eat in one sitting i.e. 1 cup (measured cooked or uncooked)?

What's your opinion on whole-wheat bread as opposed to rice for a fat minimizing carb source? have you ever used bread and had less success with it?

sorry about the questions, it's just that i am thinking of changing my diet around to more rice instead of bread.

brown rice. Just eat shit tons of it. I used to do buns, never bread though. I used to do whole wheat buns just because i like how they toasted and stayed fluffy. And i mean, i'm on an all you can eat college dining plan for MOST of my eating. I basically eat a full plate of rice pretty stacked into a mound, and a decent sized bowl of pasta. Then veggies or beans. And i typically get seconds of whatever tasted the best. Honestly I've tracked my calories before and i always end up eating between 2000-2500 and never stray from it. Its weird.

Cool, okay thanks!

You've convinced me to eat more rice and lentils etc.

I walked up to them and showed them proper technique and the husband got it. Then the wife gave me a kiss on the cheek and i made new friends. hahahaha.
