    Sets 1 x 10 reps x 20kg

    1x4 x 27,5

    1x3 x 30

    1x3 x 35

    4x3 x 37.5



    1 x 10 x 20kg

    1x 5 x 30

    1x5 x 37.5

    1x5 x 45

    4x5 x 52.5


    Bench Press

    1x4 x 27.5

    2x4 x 32.5

    4x4 x 35

  2. Well my S&C Coach gave me the program to follow which is basically stronglifts 5x5 but with only a 2,5kg progression each week in order to study the form better at least for one month, adding some accessory exercises to do at least twice a week:

    Face pulls 2x10

    hammer curls 2x10

    back extension 3x10

    hamstring curls 3x20

    glutes raise 4x10

    fatman pull 3x10

    dumbbell press 2x15

    tricep extensions with rubber bands 50-100


    these are exercises that i will use to strengthen lats, shoulders, hamstrings, glutes and lower back so they can help me more in the 3 big lifts.. cant wait for monday

  3. About the diet, i will try one week in this way, forgetting about processed tasty vegan fake meat and focus more on whole foods.

    an example:



    Oat flakes 100g + soja milk 100 ml

    Myprotein Pea protein powder 20g + soja milk 200ml



    Pea protein 40g + soja milk 300 ml + Blue berries 125g



    Salad- Raw Spinach 100 g, bell peppers 100g

    Red Lentils 80g + Amaranth 20g, Broccoli 100g and tomato sauce 200g, olive oil 14g



    Tofu 200g,

    brussel sprouts 200g

    Brazil nuts 20g

    Sunflower seeds 20g

    Almonds 20g


    2419 kcal

    243g carbs

    81g fat

    156g pro

    49g fiber


    Let´s see if i will get rid of abdominal fat

  4. I have trained with the strength coach and he fixed my squat by using box squats and exercises to strengthen my hamstrings glutes and lower back.

    Also he said i should forget about intermittent fasting everyday or at least not so extreme as the warrior diet, i kinda trust him since he is a great powerlifter.

    Tomorrow i will see how it goes about deadlift and bench press seminar!! I am so happy

  5. Hey no cold as fucking ice in Berlin But i will move back to my hometown in Italy in April so i guess there is warmer.

    About the diet is perfect, i feel a bit hungry when i wake up but after 1 hour is gone.. Is actually a release to eat only in 4 hours, instead of counting macros every 3 hours eating, feeling tired, carrying food around and so on.

    The ankle is perfect.. I only discovered i have a bit of hypolordosis, my low back has basically no curve at all so i am trying to fix this with stretches and soon i will go to physiotherapist or chiropractic.

    I even took a strength and conditioning coach to be sure my forms on squats and deadlift are perfect because i noticed a "butt wink" when i go ass to grass..

  6. I will update my log at the end of february.

    I added some other exercises to my workouts (ABABAB)



    paused low-bar squats 5x5

    paused bench press 5x5

    I am actually following the warrior diet (20 hours fasting 4 feasting) based on 2700kcal

    I am currently 180cm 23yrs old 88kg and 20%bf


    Looking up on getting stronger and maybe leaner

    My aim is to start a powerlifting training maybe next fall or winter.

  7. Hey Rob,

    During the fasting i only drink coffee water and tea, i eat nothing, except after the workouts i drink protein shake with 1 banana


    Yes i always train fasted but i think i will go a bit higher with calories because i am already fasting and i am afraid to waste energy and strength if i have such amount of calories

  8. wow rob thanks for all the tips!!

    I have recently started to use MYFITNESSPAL to track my macros and calories, considering that i am doing the warrior diet (i start to eat at 6pm and finish almost at 7:30pm) what do you think about this meal?


    I start with


    spinach raw 50g

    carrots 200g

    cucumber 50g

    sunflower seeds 20g

    almonds 20g



    quinoa 50g

    red lentils 50g

    olives Tofu 200g

    pepper 100g

    brown mushrooms 50g

    broccoli 100g



    Pea protein 80g

    2 bananas

    1 red apple


    1800 kcal

    187 carbs

    57 fat

    129 proteins


    I am 23yrs old 180cm x 88kg i calculated 20% fat mass

    I am doing strength training so squat, bench press, bb row, deadlift, and OHP

  9. I am starting to have problem with the squat, but only when i hold the bar behind my back, it seems difficult to let the bar go a bit more down on my back and the bones of my shoulders start to hurt and i feel like my hands are not holding properly.. i have no problem with going down and squatting but holding the bar it is a nightmare.. probably because i do not own a squat rack and to start the squatting position i do an assisted power clean.. i will buy soon a simple rack i hope that will change the situation

  10. Hey Rob thats great to read you tried this diet want to share some of your opinions?

    I have been overweight after an injury in march in which was avoided to do sports before the end of my recovery which was in october.. I gained something like 10 kg more, i tried the warrior diet for 5 days and lost 3 kg, but i am a bit concerned about a few things:


    - during the overeating i cannot eat all my daily calories

    - the day after when i workout i feel very very warm when before i didnt even have a drop of sweat, my heart goes very very fast and sometimes (for example doing squats) i feel like losing my senses(during the workout i drink 1 big bottle of water with multivitamin and 8g of BCAA), i asked to other people who follow TWD and they said is normal the first days.. i hope so

    - are the kg i lost from bodyfat or muscles?


    In a few days i will buy the book so maybe they will have everything explained there, but some tips would be great


    Thanx Rob!


    ps during the undereating phase i do not have small raw snacks like Ori says, because i know that if i eat 1 celery stick then i want to eat everything so i just keep my stomach closed

  11. i dont know i feel like i enjoy more raw food, but i tried a few days this paleo and ate raw sprouted legumes as some vegan paleos advice, but i felt really bad nausea for 2 days diarrhea and hunger loss.. i am following the warrior diet now and during the overeating phase i eat a lot of raw greens, nuts seeds fruits and add cooked proteins like some burgers or red lentils and a protein shake to reach my daily protein needs.. i feel way much better..

  12. Damn dude what a bunch of fuckers.. i am sorry to hear that, i know what you feel and it gets very hard sometimes especially when a city starts to become not very mentally healthy for you.. job opportunities, people, and so on.. I am moving hopefully to Vancouver soon so i know what you mean.. Things will change do not punish yourself too much and focus on good things because positivity brings positive things..

    Good luck and hope you had fun with the workout today

  13. hey man thanks for asking! my ankle feels great it is totally recovered, i did 10 stair flights for 10 times (with 1 minute rest between sets) but running this time so no added weights, but my calves were a bit sore the day after so i guess this stair thing is not that bad i will do it more often.. and cant wait tomorrow for some squat!!

  14. What do you think about the Paleo Vegan diet? including legumes left in water 24hours without cooking? Eating a lot of nuts and seeds, a lot of fruits and veggies.. no cooked stuff no cereals, only carbs from fruits.

    Seems like a nice diet, but is it suitable for those who dream about becoming a powerlifter in the future?


    I would like to hear some opinions!!
