      5 hours is all you need anyway!

      resident - when I burn out I step away from the heavy stuff for 4-6 weeks.... works like a charm. That's where I'm at now actually

      Yes. 5 hours of sleep sucks, and I feel like death if I don't get at least 7, but you gotta push through man.

      I'm usually an evening gym-goer, but with my hectic schedule lately, I added two morning workouts a week. Gotta say, it wasn't as horrible as I thought it would be.

      Happy PUMP day!

      Looking great, but need some more face pics to determine the amount of effort you have been putting in.

      Haven't posted in here in a while. Finally bought some CAP plates, I'm going to put together a set up in my basement.

      Chilled came to my gym again today to train. He's got a pretty solid bench, and I was impressed with a guy his size doing about a dozen or so pull-ups. I think he was a little distracted with all the ladies in the gym tonight.

      weighed in at 235.6 this morn. down a total of 73.4 from my high of 309.

      also ran 30 minutes straight for the first time in my life for a distance of about 3.25. all after deciding on making it a rest day.

      all in all a pretty successful day.

      I'd love to stop by Spoolin's gym; shame I'm about 900 miles too far. That said, if anyone is ever in the metro Detroit area, I'd welcome you to check out the place I train at.

      Been making progress with split squats again. Problem is I always seem to pull a muscle in my back, wrenching it real good. I'm assuming its because I'm holding DBs, and when I go to pick them up I allow my back to round for a moment before straightening up, then standing. Any advice there?

      I'd love to go to any purpose built gym, that isn't CF orientated.
      I did find one out here actually. It's 100$ a month though, and while I would really enjoy learning the C&J and the Snatch, I think there would be some things I would miss about not having a full "gym" setting. I still have a month or two to figure it out. I just really don't know if I can come up with an extra 70-80$ a month.

      JC- if you know you're rounding your back when picking up the dumbbells, and think that may be the cause of your pain, why not try stopping that? Sounds like it could be a culprit for sure.

      I recorded a 5 rep deadlift last night. Pulled 370, weighing in at exactly 185. Was hoping to get some form advice. Watching the video, one thing I think I need to work on, is getting the bar closer to my shins. The bar path seems to move backwards towards me at first when I break off the ground, and I can only imagine this is inefficient. I think my back looks good though no?

      Any and all advice is greatly appreciated.



      (it should be orientated properly soon. I'm using youtube to flip it)

      07-26-2012 11:27 PM #1218



      Some good progress made since October. A little background info.
      6'1.5ish always weighed around 182-188 never ate that good but my metabolism has always been good. i was always a casual gym attender never anymore than 3 days a week. it was hard to be consistent with my job and its crazy hours. i started lifting in 2008. always athletic playing some sort of sports I walk alot ride bikes occasionally and what have you

      So back in October i had a hunch I was going to lose my job in the near future. My girl of several years and I parted and went out separate ways. I ended up getting laid off went through a little depression etc. ended up linking with my buddy who wanted to "self improve". he was a frequent party animal and used drugs occasionally, but started increasing and increasing. we made a pow wow to be in the gym 5 days a week change our lives and just do better.

      Upped the gym attendance from 2-3 days a week to 5-6
      started eating a little healthier
      took tons of advice from my brother who is a trainer


      that pic is from earlier this summer. i got my max bench up from 205 to 275. i tried so many different work outs and routines to switch things up and it really worked. for one month straight my partner and I only did flat bench press dumbells and flys. then for a month we only did incline and decline. we used every piece of equipment in the gym. started doing cardio before and after the work out. we rowed here and there. abs and obliques every other day etc.

      sucks my six pack is crooked. its genetics though, cant do anything about it

      if anyone has any suggestions or advice for me, please share. i love feedback

      and if anyone needs advice or suggestions on workout routines etc, PM me. i would love to help!

      Got a question for those of you that know your anatomy. I was doing a warm-up incline db press (50lbs) the other day and all of a sudden I started having pain on the outside of my left arm. It's hard to explain but it's where the deltoid ends on the outside of your arm. If you reached across and covered your delt w/ your hand, it would be just below there.

      Any idea what the hell happened? Maybe I had my elbows out too far? It's a new pain for me and I'm confused where the hell it came from.
