Yeah, I think the extra cholesterol is...not needed in my diet. I do think I might buy a little tub of plant-based protein for super hard sessions, or something with peanut butter, but most of the time I end up drinking my protein powder as breakfast and not particularly after working out.Whey has too much cholesterol. Not against it as a protein source at all, I actually like that it's an easy-to-process protein (I have a smol tub for post workout when I sometimes want something creamy and/or if it's an intense session). And I'm not actively trying to restrict cholesterol but if I don't really need to eat it, then I don't. Iono, not a nutrition nerd and I don't need every meal/experience to be a billion percent optimized or anything, haha! Not training for Olympics ova hea. Just need to eat n move on with my day.
Edit: Jumping on @JayKay PE's point about food. I'm with you. Food is primary macro source and shakes n stuff are just for backup/convenience/"topping off". Also, it's expensive.
Oh yeah, we actually do a ton of z-presses. I just haven't done a strict press in forever and was being lazy (though I was told my front rack position looked amazing, so I'll take what I can).As a conditioning exercise for OHP, try a Z press, which is a barbell overhead press (though you can do it with dumbbells too), but sitting on the ground. It really forces you to fight to stay upright during the press, since any arching or leaning back will make you feel like you're going to fall over backwards.
That's something I need to work on... my front rack position. Getting my elbow up is extremely difficult, and I experience pretty bad wrist pain. I had been working on wrist and shoulder mobility, but it wasn't helping. Right before the pandemic one of the trainers had me do lat stretches and that was actually helping a lot. I guess my lats are very tight and don't have enough flexibility, so I end up compensating by over extending my wrists. Then COVID happened and I stopped everything. Gotta get back on that.Oh yeah, we actually do a ton of z-presses.
