    I believe D2 does or has done something similar to this. I think he uses almond milk, though.

    Don't feel bad about pale legs. I work outside in Central Florida, but I have to wear Dickies Pants all day. My face and arms stay tan year around, but my legs are always 100 shades lighter, lol.

    Umm I might have fallen asleep in the sun at the beach. And by the time I realized I needed more sunscreen it was already too late. So I'm just waiting for the back of my legs to heal a little more and then I'm heading back to gym. It's been an annoying/painful week lol but I'll live.

  7. Sat Update:

    Did Color Me Rad this am. OMG did we have a great time. Srs it was amazing! I'll post pics tomorrow when I get on the comp too much work from here.

    Yes (hangs head) I ran the entire thing. Once we started I couldn't help it. I think I ran it in 38-40 wasn't timed but it felt good. Got COVERED in color, haha! And at the end it actually made the sunburn soooo much better!

    We all changed and went to lunch covered in color still it was hilarious. So many questions asked, but we didn't care. And thankfully the color came off pretty easy in the shower.

    Then lex was super lazy all day. Watched Netflix, had some froyo, a few frosty beverages and did NOTHING! I think by Monday I should be ready to lift again! YAY! Excited!

  8. Aaand I'm back @ the gym - and boy was it nice and quiet in there (6:45am).

    Stronglifts 5x5 has been started .. yay! Forgot to take measurements, but I did weigh myself. I'll try to get measurements tonight, if I remember. I'm exhausted right now. LOL Still have to figure out macros too, I'm working at about 1550, but I think that's a little low, not sure we'll see how the days go.

    SW: 176.8
    Pre: 1 scoop HyperFX Grape
    Intra: 3 scoops RP w/ 32oz H2O

    SL - A

    Squats*:
    5 x BW
    5 x 45

    Rows**:
    5 x 45
    5 x 45
    5 x 45
    5 x 45
    5 x 45

    * Squat form was sloppy, blah! I had a feeling that would be the case. So I think I'm going to stay at bar next workout to make sure I get it back under control.
    ** A little awkward, but I figured they would be. Another one I'm going to have to work on form with. Just takes a little time.

    The good news is that my knees took it well. I was a little concerned since the back of them are still healing. But they worked fine with no additional pain. Thankfully my skin has finally started to tan out and isn't pink anymore. I do have one spot right near my left armpit that is still green from Sat, cracks me up, but it's new skin so I don't want to scrub it. Anyway. Everything feels good. I'm going to hold off on extra cardio until next week to make sure I'm all healed up and just focus on the lifting for now

    Note to self: Must place AI order and some protein soon ... ugh!

    Can't go wrong with compound lifts

  12. I dig the dead lift.

    Lift the fücking weight from the floor, or leave it on the ground. The thoughts are supposed to be daunting. The pain is meant to be tormenting.

    That's for sure. And I'm feeling it already .. gotta love that first day back after not lifting for a while.

    ** Kinda wish I had warmed up w/ just the bar as that was kinda uneventful, but I'll definite do some warm-up DLs next round

    * Squat form much better, think I'll move up to 50 next round. I noticed on occasion I'm leaning forward, so I might throw some plates under my toes to see if that helps, but I definitely feel better. Rawr!
    ** Form was much better on these, just took some getting used to.

    Another empty AM in the gym .. YAY! Everything is feeling better. At the time my legs were all moar skwatz, then I hopped in the car and hit the clutch and they were all .. no moar skwatz lmfao But everything feels great. I like that I'm adding weight now so I have some warm-up more than just BW.

  18. LOL. I forgot about trying to work a clutch on leg days. I definitely know what you're talking about.

  19. Awesome Lex! Just curious, are you using a high bar of low bar stance?

    It's supposed to be low bar, which I tried a few times, but it's just not as comfortable for me. So I switched back to high bar for now. I might try it again later, but I dunno yet.

  21. Sunday's Bike Ride

    16.89 mi @ 1hr45mins

    I thought I would post a picture of sand ... or where I ride at least ... lol


    I was quite skeptical that this ride would even get that far. When I started out I had some weird right hip pain, but I gave it a good talking to and about 10 mins later it was loose and ready to go. Now both feel great and nicely stretched out. One of the best parts of riding ... And I'm finally learning which trails NOT to take. Let's just say that coming down a little decline and hitting soft sand that kicks out your back tire is not always fun. Lex has not fallen or wiped yet knocksonallwoodsurfaces.jpg However, I have come close!

    5 x 50
    5 x 50

    DLs:
    5 x 65
    5 x 75

    * Squat form is much better, tried plates under toes for one set felt weird, removed them and was fine. Had to squat outside the rack since we only have one and someone was using it. Weight is low enough right now that clearing the bar is ok. I did widen my stance just a little and that seemed to make a world of difference, so maybe that was the problem all along. Definitely got lower.
    ** Last rep on each of these was hard .. but I pushed through. Our seated machine is broken so I've been doing them standing for now.

    Workout felt great! Wish the rack hadn't been occupied, but I would have been able to use it had the little front door guy not come up and tell me I have to put my bag in a locker. Srs? Since when? Ugh, by the time I got back someone had taken the rack. I mean srs I probably could have shoved the bag in my pocket that's how big it is. Oh well, guess it's new policy. Other than that everything felt great. I can tell OHP is going to give me the most problems. But I'm ready for it

    Form is definetly the key.... sometimes we have to remind ourselves of that and back the weight down to make sure we are working the muscle as much as possible. Your workouts are looking good!

    2nd this! Especially when the weights get heavier!

  25. Oh yeah, I am not looking to get injured trust me. I've been out enough because of stupid things (life, sunburn, etc) I don't need any problems due to laziness. Mon workout everything felt great. We'll see how tomorrows goes. Weights are slowly climbing up
