    I started no carb breakfast and then dropped the eggs, so now just bullet proof coffee. I feel like that gives me more energy and I ride my bike every morning.

    Just made my numbers this week - was happy not to miss.

    Also started with MCT and transitioned to Nutiva unrefined coconut oil in my bullet proof coffee. Not a big difference to me, and either gives my a nice morning boost, since I don't eat breakfast.

    Yeah. One of the good/bad things about a progressive program like 5/3/1 is that you are being continuously challenged. So, far I've made it through five full cycles without a miss, but fear of...

    I think muscle mass and physical activity levels are more important than age. We know that most people lose lean muscle mass as they age, so they is why there is a correlation between age and BMR.

    Bastardized 5/3/1 cycle 5, week 1 repeat (5/5/5, 8/8/8/), Workout B

    Mediocre workout today. Stiff a pain around the ribs.

    I repeated week 2 to re-align my de-load to a travel week. Bummed that I couldn't do 5 reps on big set overhead. That was the only miss today,...
