    yeah i'm happy with progress, i don't want to spend any more money on training than i do and i still put 5% on at every visit.

    I am considering dropping the assistance as it's currently not progressing, the squats seemingly take too much out of me as i do them first. Once i'm maintaining the squats (soon) i will perhaps bring them back or maybe add in bench press.

    You're doing 1 exercise once a month and you require a trainer?

    Well, considering you only go once a month, I'd hope it would be. Mind sharing your current lifts and bodyweight?

    That's competitive. Ever think of signing up for a competition?

    no not particularly, that's not my bag

    also they're guided, so i dont have to worry about the balance, etc... Some might say i'm missing out on part of the point (the article you posted suggested as much) but it feels strong and safe, so i'm happy

    [redacted] editing in response to your editing. doesn't sound like you're actually squatting, so nevermind.

    i know exactly what you are suggesting

Increase the stress slowly but surely and you'll be fine in no time.
    I have started to take a protein omly shake on my lifting days. One in the morning, one before lifting and one straight after lifting plus my evening meal. I also eat plenty of eggs and meat. Should I be taking the shake every day though? to build up a base protein level?
