I have been thinking about the paleo thing for a while and I think part of why it works with people who aren't already in great shape is that it does limit their caloric intake automatically and gets their insulin profile smoother. I think that most people who are in fairly good shape tend to auto regulate when eating a wide open diet. Ok maybe I am overreaching there, what I mean is that I auto regulate when I am eating everything. Does that make sense? I don't binge on carbs but I am not avoiding them right now either. Today I had a spicy chicken from Wendys but threw away half the bun. I also am at the most muscular I have ever been. I am just rambling now but I have been doing a lot of thinking along the same lines.

Good call I didn't consider that for other people. I know whenever I go straight to no grains/starches paleo I loose weight and muscle fast but since doing a more carb cycling approach with grains and starchy carbs I've done a fantastic job at maintenance.

Regarding both of your posts: Word.

I've more or less given up on a strict Paleo approach because a) I was always so guilty when I went off track b) it was boring c) it didn't seem to matter when it came to getting lean and feeling good.

I will say though, that there are some foods that cause me to break out a touch more. Considering that I am 27, this can be problematic.

4.3

Squat: 190x5, 215x3, 240x6

Low back was bothering me from yesterday so I just did Squats. I think my bench form is off and that's what's causing some of my back pain and difficulty on that lift. Gonna try and get some prowler work in next week since it's been a couple weeks since I last pushed it.

I'm sure you've seen this but just for the hell of it: http://www.dieselcrew.com/how-to-bench-press

I come back to that from time to time to remember some cues.

4/10

Squat: 100 x 5, 125 x 5, 150 x 5
GM's: 105 x 2 x 10
Lunges: 30 x 2 x 10

4/12

Press: 80 x 5, 95 x 5, 105 x 11
DB Incline: 50 x 10, 55 x 10, 7, 50 x 8
Chins: 45 x 9, 8, 7
Dips: 45 x 10, 10, 7

I was tired, it showed on some exercises. I've been working a lot and haven't been home that much so I haven't been able to get in much protein. 105 x 11 is not bad at all though for being tired and working all day especially after a very stressful week last week and this week so far.
