My gym is probably the busiest in San Diego. I hate it. Even off peak hours, you still have to wait to use almost anything. There are a total of 7 barbell racks, plus a free floating barbell and trap bar, 4 smith machines, something like 12 assorted flat, incline and decline benches with barbells and another 12 free standing benches. Still have to wait to use stuff. It's the closest gym by a few miles though.

Nothing like walking into a damn near empty gym when it opens at 5:30. I wish I was better at waking up that early.

5:30-7am is one of the busiest times at mine. Then 5-7:30pm. Outside of then it's alright

i try to avoid weekends.

And usually end up working out at noon on weekdays (people are at work or school)
or really late at night, like 10:30 pm /11:00 pm it's not as busy, and i get pretty much the whole weight area to myself.

Plus, nothing better than coming home late a night, taking a shower, eating a hot meal, then passing out on your bed for 8 hours
feelsgood

I have been floating at 189lbs (18% BF) for a good while now even though I have been really good with my diet and have been lifting. I know I should do cardio but still. So I am now pissed and have decided to be ridiculous:

5am - lift weights for 45 mins
breakfast - smoothie (1c greek yogurt, 1/2c oats, 1tbsp chia seeds, 1/2c fruit, 1/2c almond milk)
lunch - 6oz chicken, 1c broccoli, 1/2 cup cooked brown rice
dinner - chicken salad
30 mins Insanity workout
*Drink whey throughout the day to make sure I stay around 180g of protein to not lose muscle mass

Looking at this sounds like it should work right? I'm going crazy trying to lose this last 10-15lbs haha After I do I am going to switch it up and start clean bulking for the first time.

^^^

diet looks decent, add some more fruit if you want.

working out twice in one day?
just do the cardio after you wake up, then eat a high protein breakfast, then lift IMHO
but do whatever fits your schedule, cardio before bed or on off day is better than no cardio at all.

kinda broscience, but i'd shoot for ~1.5 gram of protein per lean body mass. Don't go all nazi on your diet though haha keep it up.

PRd my snatch at 80kg last Friday. Felt good to finally hit it. Lot of low % volume for a few weeks then I'll start the peaking process to try and hit some good numbers. Looking at trying to compete in July

i eat potatoes all the time. I stir-fry and bake them a few times a week at least.
Love taters. Sweet potatoes are even better!
Potatoes are a good source of complex carbs, if your macros and total calorie intake are ok, you can eat them with no worries.
eat them with chicken breast or a beef, add some veggies, brown rice, and you have a great meal for bodybuilding!

I switched out potatoes for sweet potatoes only because I prefer sweet potatoes and they release their carb content more slowly than potatoes so I feel fuller for longer and have more energy.

Still eat potatoes on occassion though.

That's good news. I was getting tired of my diet and potatoes are so cheap and delicious. I've gained 15 pounds this year by just eating healthy and eating a lot, no calorie counting or anything like that. I was pretty sick last year and my weight dropped to below 155lbs but I finally had the energy to start working out again at the beginning of the year and I'm trying to make the most of it.

I've been using Word to log it on my work computer, haven't found a good excel template yet and don't have the patience to make one myself
