    squats

    with the exclusion of the cable curls and the final set of squats I was working at a conservative 60-70% of capable reps. Pissed I coudln't get the 245 and wanted to then do a 20 repper of 265 after, phuck. Started shaking violently all over right after that set that didn't go away for 20-30 minutes.

    Take it easy there bud! You're just getting back into it! Give yourself a little pat on the back for still moving some decent weight!

    Heels on the top outside corner of the leg press. Bottom pin set, sled drops to the very bottom, lower back rounds in and knees tuck up to either side of your face. Nothing but glutes and hams to get it moving out of that position.

    ALN doesn't make tanks. I do have a one or two I've cut into sleevless's. I'd like to see WBB wear to be honest.

    Haha, I'm just messing with you. I would never say that to your face considering you are twice my size. I'm wearing a cutoff ALN shirt now.

    Talk to him about making one that simpy reads "why you curling in the squat rack?" on the front. then a creative stick figure with his back 45 degrees backwards curling in the rack. I would buy 10 and wear that every single day.

    Hey Tim. Yeah I should really throw out some random updates more often. But I didn't really want to start updating this regularly until everything was 100% again.

    Works big time eased up, just 40 hours. I got really, really, really beat up from the 72hrs. It was a mistake on my part keeping my calories around maintenance during that time. Since then I've raised the food, got tons of good rest and my body has been recouping well. I'm still beat up though...

    I did however strain a bicep or something in my forearm at work and am not training back atm. I also made the decision to stop squatting atf for my back sake, unfortunately this is taking a toll on my knees only going to parallel.

    I made a decision last week to alter my rep ranges. For the past year and half (at least the majority of it) I've worked in a 4-8 rep range. I'm moving up to a 9-12. If I didnt get 9 reps I'll drop the weight, if I make it to 12 I'll up it. I'm really shocked initially how little low rep stength has carried over to high rep endurance. The weights I've chosen feel feathers for the first few reps, then once I get around 7 or 8 they've felt like they've instantly doubled. Somewhat interesting actually. It humbling using some light weights but I think for the best.

    Mentally tough dealing with the hunger, cravings, weakness, lethargy. The more frightening side is the solitary confinement it brought and the depression, anxiety, panic attacks etc.

    I can deal with the first set. I'm in no place to take on the second.

    I can't imagine what that'd be like. It does seem like you to have to at least somewhat anti-social if you are trying to cut to a very low bodyfat.
