    I get them from doing calf raises on the Smith machine. I attribute it to slight bruising.

    Okay, how's this: I've upped my calories, and don't have size measurements, but with REALLY good supplementation and a buttload of calories, I'm up 13 lbs. in one month with WBB#1 or slight...

    I have no before and after pics. I can say that in 2 months of WBB#1, I've raised my incline bench by 20lbs. By DB bench by 15lbs. per arm.
    My BB curls by 15lbs.
    My leg press by 90lbs.

    Hack Squats / Leg Press

    What do you guys think about replacing the hack squats in WBB#1 with leg presses?

    My reason is that I HATE hack squats. They're uncomfortable as hell. Therefore, I can't work at full intensity. ...

    You're trying to LOSE, right? Get rid of the shredded wheat. Wheat is high GI, and shredded makes it even higher.

    I don't refrigerate mine that I keep at work. It works just fine.

    On a weirder note: I pour the oil off the top of mine as soon as I open it. There's plenty of fat within the peanut butter...

    I kind of relate it to my pull-ups. I couldn't do one when I began working out. But I tried, then did the negatives. So it was less reps, more weight.

    I feel there's a balance in there. I...

    Do you have someone that you lift with? I usually have a spot, since I go to set failure. That way, it can be true, middle of a lift, set failure.

    I have to say, it's a valid question. And in my experience, having that sticking point is normal. The tricep is getting its workout... you don't have to overdo it by dividing the ROM for one muscle...

    Yeah, I just finished my 2nd (starting 3rd) week on WBB #1. I'm feeling it and seeing it much more than my "old" routine of 3x8-10. I'm getting used to hitting that set failure by keeping the...

    I had the same AWFUL gas at first. Had to just keep drinking it and firing the ass cannon until I got used to it. After about 3 weeks of steady use, my body adapted to it.

    Altering / Unsure on WBB #1

    For what's listed as "chin-ups" on the back/chest day, is that underhanded-gripped chin-ups? That seems more like a bicep exercise than a back exercise. I used to do pull-ups (overhand grip), but...
