    Ouch. That's no fun. I have a good part of my miniscus gone and the part remaining "flips" on me from time to time and it feels pretty arthritic. I was doing legs twice a week and extensions were killing me too. Had to back off to once per week and really warm-up slow. It's effected the weight I handle on squats because the "flipping" seems worse on squats. Take care and good luck.

    Thanks guys. Really doesn't bother me with squats as long as I keep my knees stable laterally and keep the weight well behind my toes. If I lose form when going heavy I feel it for days and get kinda swollen.

  3. I basically feel the same way. If I drive through my heels and keep the weight off my toes/ball of foot I'm usually okay. However, just mentally thinking of using the ball of my foot and heel evenly shifts more emphasis to quads, which is what i need to focus on, but alas, I can't do that or I won't be squatting at all.

    the thing that made the biggest difference for me was going shoeless and lifting my toes up through the entire rep. makes it impossible to shift weight too far forward.

  7. It freaks me out thinking if I drop some weight on my foot I'll be in more pain wearing toe shoes than regular shoes. My mom got me these new bikes yesterday they're sick!

  11. I have a pair, I hate them, what size are you. They cost 90 bucks if I were to buy them, wore them once. They are vibrams. I wore them to walk around my neighborhood and couldn't stand the way they felt. A freind of mine (female) won a male and female pair at one of her crossfit competitions so she gave me the male pair.

    I ve had that happen with shoes, and it hurt. Probably would have lost a toe if it were Vibrams.

    I had a kid I was training set a dumbell on a bench off ballance. When I walked up it fell perfect on my pinky toe. I lost the toe nail. it was bleed under he nail, nasty.

  14. Damn that hurts just thinking.

  15. Here's my recent pics, taken today right after I woke up. I decided to lower carb intake starting today, I was eating nothing b sweet potatoes and yams past few days for carbs. I felt I was eating to much, so I cut them from 200g-100g. I plan to start Keto soon in the next 2 weeks. Here's how it's coming along:

    Those are tough for most I think but you're looking proportionate that's most important

  19. Ok cool! Thanks!

  20. My daily log for Dec. 10: Today went pretty great! I woke up ate my first meal and took my new bought Orange Triad. I watched some motivational vids before I lifted, and I was pretty pumped for the most part. Today I did Legs. I split them again doing Quads/ Calves in AM, and Hamis/ Abs in the PM. I was planning to do 15min H.I.T. After my 2nd session, but just warming up walking before I tried to run I was cramping in my quads. I Figured it was fine to just do cardio tomorrow after my workout. I got my Endurance BCAA's from Formutech nutrition just after I got home from my 1st lifting session. I took some white flood prior to lifting quads and I was straight gone. My mind was focused on one thing...Train Hard, Don't Give Up! I busted my butt during quads. I finished the workout by killing my calves as well. After the workout I took a post workout I made out of Creatine Monohydrate, Aminos, Glutamine, and a different BCAA product. I Went to work after and felt great. I got off around 5:30, and left work for the gym once more. I hit my hamis hard, I had good contractions and stretches throughout the 2nd session. After I took ENDURANCE, OMG WOW. It beats the hell out of my other BCAA supp. It tasted delicious! Watermelon was the flavor. Instantly I was feeling better than when I started. So far Day 1 of Endurance was a good run. Now I'm just waiting til I get my other product from Formutech, and I will log about it on this thread. I'm feeling better and better everyday, I'm confident, I'm going to be shredded this contest, and I'm going to win! I'm going all in for the win and I'm pushing my limits to the max!

    Here's my lifts for today:
    Quads/Calves:
