    Hey all,

    I've been adhering to the Primal lifestyle (well, 90/10) for a few years now, and my blood lipids have typically been stellar. But I just got back some test results that are pretty...

    Great, hope you feel better having gotten that out of your system. Though in the book Wendler comes out and admits that back in his powerlifting days, he was a fat slob who could only waddle up to...

    Great program. I've gained a bit north of 10 pounds in the first 6 weeks, and my clothes are looser. Only downsides are that I'm tired most of the time, and I have to eat a ton.

    It's Wendler, btw.
  8. Weight gain on 531 - need perspective please!

    I am happy with the results I'm getting after 6 weeks on 531, but am worried I might be deluding myself, and would appreciate a gut check.
