    I run a lot. Not so much recently. I like to run at night and when it's cold much more. Even fast paced walks (i got dogs) I just hate when its hoy and sticky I don't think under 30 mins of running will burn to much muscle.

    I was much bigger. I was stronger then. I basically bulked for around 5 years slowly then cut for a year and have trying to basically just slowly improve as much as I can. Strength has a lot to do with tendon strength, explosive power, and your CNS. Size isn't always relevant to strength. There will not be a 140lb person benching 600. There obviously Is some relevancy.

    I agree swimming is wonderful. Running is just something that it's benefits are countless. Especially if in sports.

    Good **** on the snatches. I just started adding them in. Not sure if I'm going to do a deadlift/snatch day.

    It killed my left shoulder ( old high school injury). Not on the way up but on the way down. And my shoulder flexibility is horrible.

    Today I weighed 171 again.. And It was a very bad day. I should note that I have been working crazy hours, and a golf outing 2 days ago which after led to excessive drinking didnt help. My diet has been Ehh, and sleep has been little.

    Epic failure today, the best part of today was the awesome shirt I had on...

    Got 115 but when I had some one film me I couldnt repeat the set. I was not happy...



    Failed again...


    Then Bench...

    Worked up to 315. Hit a very clean double, then a easy clean single. Something about giving up my spotter mentally ****ed me for this set. Knowing that this set was on camera may not have helped as well..... VERY DIRTY REP i know i know....

    Edit: video in later post

    Its days like today that fuel me to really bust ass... Motivation. Watching these videos hurts.

    Gotta give credit where credit's due - keeping it real by posting the fails. For myself, it's much more valuable (and painful) to have the some of those bad days on tape, as compared to only having videos of the "good" days

    Squats today, I feel that I was very glycogen depleted during yesterdays work out. I ate almost nothing the previous days.

    Weight 177

    Worked up to 405 regular stance then did chain squats.

    This is 315 + 2 chains each side (chains weigh 20lbs each)

    That is a bunch of chains.

    Must train in a pretty diesel gym. We need to get more chains at my facility, but unfortunately that isn't on the priority list right now.

    Nice work tho.

    Thanks guys. I have hit a 500 parallel before (no chains just free weight) I use a much wider stance maxing out. For training I bring it in to increase my ROM. I also try to pass parallel training, but the last was about parallel. My sticking point is not in the hole, rather about 6 inches up so I set some chains to deload completely at that point of the lift.

    No clue, I have a video from years ago I hit 100s for either 10 or 12. I'll find it.

    I know how I can find the answer to this question. Let you know within the week.

    I hate when I hit the burn out point.. I usually back off too much and have to really get back with it again!

    Thank you mike smith (Smitty) for critiquing my lifts. Made the recommended adjustments for squats today. Hit 405 + 80lbs total in chains for a set of 1 (tried the second got it moving up but the chains were to much. )

    Hit 315 for a set of 3 today on bench. Which was after dead lifts. Best in a long time for me!

    My new protocol came in today. I didn't get it until after my work out BUT it tastes so good.

    3 tubs. You won't regret it. I recommend using more water than recommended. Drinking .5 serving and 16 oz water now.

    Ok will do. I went with three because I love Leucine + Agmatine + LCLT pre-workout and I found an awesome deal. Never used COP but should be interesting.

    I have never used COP before the new protocol as well. I try to keep supplements simple. But I am very excited to see how things progress these next few weeks.

    Very busy so it's been a while.

    Hit a PR on deads today. 455 and I got it pretty easily. Once I saw an inch of air under it I knew I had it!

    Weighed 181 post work out. Was 189 yesterday after a weekend of recklessness. I knew it wouldn't stay.
