Wow. I think that could be possibly one of the best food combinations ever.

I have no clue what this is about I just saw avocado and had to comment. Avocado is now formally known to me as solid booster propellant. Olive oil is JP5.

I'm following mostly Westside protocols at the moment and every day I eat a whole avocado about 30-60 minutes before evening game-time in the iron battlefield and wholly shinola. Tuesday I did a 50 pound jump on 3 rep set chain loaded dynamic effort box squat. After the first set on the +50 weight I swear I felt like some kind of massive chemical turbo was going off energy sky rocketed. The only other supplements I take are fish oil, vitamin C and ZMA(brand new) sometimes I carpet bomb with vitamin I for prevention. I did two more sets at this same weight. I backed away from the bar to leave lots in the tank for abs and good mornings . The jump was from 454 at the top to 504 at the top.

Is there anything better than getting better?

Paul,
That's pretty much the essence of this thread. While I personally intend log my intake of 'alligator pears' (and encourage others to do so as well), it's also an open mike for all things avocado: recipes, anecdotes, short stories, prose, etc.

Very nice lifting, by the way.

Date: July 16th
Meal: Dinner
Type: Hass

Comments: Ate half a hass with a giant T-bone steak and a cup full of blueberries. A satisfying meal, but was lacking a bit in the spice department. Also sorely lacking today was any sort of lifting activity. And clean socks and underwear too.

One hour pre-workout avocado ( slice into wedges peel off skin devour ) and two boiled egg bodyguards.


Rating: That sled had no idea what was coming. I'll have to start sneaking up around the corner before long though, I think its learning.
