i think all my sleep lost from having diarrhea might outweigh the benefits of drinking a gallon of milk

I have pretty much the same issues.. two solutions are:

1. Get a milk digestive aid (I've used this one, http://www.amazon.com/Digestive-Adva.../dp/B001G7QGCM)
2. Take protein supplements instead. At Large Nutrition's or Muscle Milk are good ones. I've only ever tried those or GNC's 100% whey, but blends seem like a smarter way to go. Also, muscle milk works well for weight gain.

btw Daniel, you could just check out lsus' program, or a volume cut of Dragomir's on Mr. Takano's site, or Glenn's site all wfs. Not to step on the toes of the internet philosophers, but it helps to follow the guys that have actually produced high class legitimate lifters.

It's likely that some more bodyfat on you would make you stronger.

Andrew,

I was freakin' brilliant and succinct.

Oh and check out your own reference from Takano:

Quote:
Outside of snatches and clean and jerks, there is no other single exercise
that places such a large workload on the body as limit and near limit back
squats

Andrew,
Not that anyone is offended by being called an internet philosopher, but if Daniel wanted advice directly from the coaches (probably for a fee) he could ask them. He is, rather, on an interwebz forum asking for free advice.

From the same link Gary posted the quote above (from Takano):
http://www.takanoathletics.com/index.php?option=com_phocadownload&view=category&i d=2:instructional-articles&download=16:benefits-of-the-back-squat&Itemid=192
Quote:
Squatting is a fantastic exercise that provides a wide array of benefits for any athlete wishing to change the anabolic state, increase leg strength, strengthen the knee joint and develop explosiveness in the legs and hips. It secondarily will improve the synergy and strengthen the postural musculature of the torso. It saves time in the workout for the busy athlete as it improves so many areas with just a few sets.
Daniel, you need some meat on your bones, some fat too. Squats are your ticket.

I would humbly recomend something simple, like a 10/10 program for the Olympic lifts 3 days a week, something like what is now called "texas method", or maybe 5/3/1 for squats, and, some pullups and presses if you have the energy. You may not, and that wouldnt be a big deal. And eat a lot.

If you want your snatch and clean and jerk to go up, you have to do the lifts, and do them a lot. If you want to get big and strong, you have to eat and squat. It is pretty much that simple.

You need milk and you need sleep. Wear diapers.
