I agree that the LHW weightclass sucks given the disparity in weight. You are a bit taller, but you could most likely get very conditioned which can help you more than hurt you.
You could always get a shuffle or nano too. Much cheaper. If I was just going to use my ipod for the gym I wouldn't get the touch.
I baby the fuck out of my iPhone tho haha.
Tim, what about an OCB comp in the tall class?
the only fed i'd consider is NPC. i'd want to enter at the top of the 198 class, where i would be steamrolled by the guys who actually know what theyre doing.. but maybe thats ok. there are 3 NPC shows local to me, southern states is the last one.. maybe ill just go this year and then try one of the smaller ones next spring. scott, im not opposed to traveling north a bit either... have to see what the near future holds.
ipodwise, its too late, i bought a touch. its not just gym use.. its also for car/pool/beach. it is nice and the interface is slick, i admit. now i get to look awesomely trendy with the white earbuds and my oliver peoples aviator sunglasses. i was off of work mon/tue & i got an amazing amount of sun yesterday. hooray.

btw that chick defintely looks like a man in the face. the first pic is pretty gross actually
I hope I can get it worked out though. Damn you Tim. Thankfully I found it a while ago, so it's not really a big lose since I paid $0 for it, but I've learned to really like it rather than an MP3 player.
mmph. if my ipod touch dies quickly i will flip out

You luv killin' the delts T.
Why do you choose smith OH pressing over regular seated barbell?
i feel especially confident in PRP because this is what pro-athletes & olympians are using to aid in recovery. their docs and hospitals are on the bleeding edge of recovery and i think erring on the side of trusting their precedence is a far far safer bet than continuing to carve my own path across mediocrity.
and actually.. i agree completely on standing mili. there are a few times i almost lost balance on heavy sets.. started belting up.. and on one of the second or third sessions after i started belting, i got a huge blood pressure increase at the top of a rep and almost fainted. it was fucking scary.. stopped doing belted oh press work that day. in more recent reflections (as if anyone cares lol), i think i was wearing my belt way too tight.
Man, your pressing strength is brutal at your bw. When do you plan on starting DC?
thx elmx. everything is just kind of on hold until my bicep heals up
When you update answer me this Tim. Do you always like to cap off your cardio at 35 due to hitting a certain length of cardio, a certain # of burned calories, or just because you don't like going for too long due to time restrictions and such?
I usually try to go by the calories burned to an extent. I don't believe it's completely accurate, not sure how accurate it is? I don't think I've done a cardio session beyond 35 minutes. I know Luna just put in 50 minutes!
I've never read studies about cardio and what the ideal range is when it comes to heart rate and fat burning and all of those others factors.
I do like the LISS or MISS longer fasted cardio sessions. I may throw one of this in for tomorrow morning.
garbage training today
rack pulls bottom pin
365x3 hook grip
pull from the bottom pin seriously seems harder than pulling from the floor
35m stairmaster, 15m MISS, 20m 1:30/1:30 intervals
scott, i do it to at least 400 cals.. which is usually right at 35m. its usually MISS but sometimes i do some intervals or mix it up in the same session like today
i really dont understand how people pull so heavy with hook grip. all of the pressure is right on my thumbs and it really hurts. theyre extremely tender right now.. supposedly it gets a while to get used to. we'll see
