The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

    Nice job Jed, that 235x16 is not even funny. Great going!
    This is the true joy in life, the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; the being thoroughly worn out before you are thrown on the scrap heap; the being a force of Nature instead of a feverish selfish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy - George Bernard Shaw

    Do you wear shin pads pal?

    Also, good effort on the benching, 245 x 7 is sick.

    i'm bumping down the bench, deadlift and mili press numbers before this 5-3-1 week starts. i needed to take 90% of my 1rm, and i had been using like 95%. without bumping htem down, i would just plateau in another cycle or two. im not changing my squat because around 16 reps is right where the last set should be. it should be AT THE LEAST ten reps, which i know i couldnt get with anything. so my current weights im using now are 255 bench, 260 squat, 335 deadlift, and 150 mili. hopefully this will allow me to make more progress in the long run, which is how its supposed to be done!

    Wow man. Its been a little while since ive had the time to browse journals and damnit man! Your getting strong you know? That bench is getting a little out of hand bro! You cant let your bench get higher than your squat or we'll have to start referring to you as *that curl jockey* hahaha. 245x7 is ******ed you know. I had one day where I did it twice... and I thought that was pretty good. Epic win in here jed, epic.
