That's a front-on shot of my calf, I rarely ever train them.

Will write up the last couple of sessions tomorrow, bench is coming along really quickly so I'm happy with that.

Worked up to 200lb for a couple of comfortable reps on Sunday.

Hey MF,
Awesome looking food as ever, thanks for dropping down my journal. Had a few days relaxing from the gym and easy going on the food we were eating as it was Portias Birthday but were back on track now. Some great lifts there on the Bench Press, i am always aiming to beat my previous workout so i can build up my strength.

Anyone here ever used oat milk? I've kinda drifted onto it, just bought a few cases of the stuff and actually tastes really good with muesli, shakes etc etc.

I guess what I like about it is that it has zero cholesterol, zero saturated fat, is highly digestible and doesn't contain lactose. I can see myself mainly using this from now on, I'm just buying it by the box :D

I generally use soy milk, as the rest generally has far less protein per serving. Also, the only time I actually have any of it is with my muesli or porridge in the morning or in coffee. I use water for my shakes, on the occasion that I have one. I've tried hemp, almond, and rice milks. The almond and rice tend to be a little too watery for my taste in cereal or coffee, and I don't recall the hemp, but I can assume the reason I don't recall it is that I didn't care much for it (or just liked the soy milk better anyway). I've never had oat milk.

Nice. Thanks for posting I'll be looking into it. I also saw you're on MD. I haven't been on that forum in years and it's good to see a strong vegan presence.

Thanks man. I'll admit now (have said before) I'm not fully vegan yet, hope to be by the end of the year. Just vegetarian right now :D

Thanks for dropping in Duke, appreciate your input. Leg day tonight, my favourite bodypart to smash up MF.

Actually, let me ask you this question...which program do you suggest I follow to maxmize my 1RM on bench? I'm curious to see what you think would work well for me...

Good question. I'd probably lean towards something like Wendler's 5/3/1, but with your overall strength and lifting experience you could probably still get good results from something with more volume (WSBB comes to mind).

If a bench 1RM was your primary focus then it wouldn't hurt you to have a look at figuring out the maths side of things, as well as your regular journal I would get hold of some kind of training spreadsheet so you can pre-programme your lifts; you'll pretty much know what you should be hitting and when. A number of the guys at my PL'ing gym have a large majority of their training dictated by what their computers generate for them. Personally I tend to be a little more instinctive, but it does work well for a lot of people and it makes sense as lifting is very maths and physics based if you break everything down.
