Sunday Reading: DOMS, diet, bench foot placement and more

Going forward I will probably gather up all the interesting training and nutrition related articles I find and publish them on Sunday.

This inaugrigal Sunday reading consists of nutrient density, dieting thoughs, bodyweight regulation, a ketosis guide, a bodybuilder cutting diet, foot placement on the bench press, anabolic window, DOMS, how to do your first pull-up, and finally a story on how Benedikt Magnusson deadlifted 1015 pounds

I found this interesting lecture where Mathieu Lalonde, PhD, breaks down a whole list of foods into their nutrient density.

Fellow fito and wordpress blogger gregnuckols have a short post on general dieting. This is a very basic post about what you need to focus on, e.g. low cards and no processed foods, depending on how much weight you need to loose.
