    Any tips, suggestions, etc, greatly appreciated. Hopefully this angle shows necessary info. I feel like my hips come up before everything else gets going. Felt little out of sync. No excuse, but having the video going changes my mental state a bit. I'll get used to that, as i can obviously learn a thing or 20 by showing you folks and having it dissected

    I need to find a way to not upload the sound though...

    1/2 scoop G8 last night - Wow! I noticed that since I didn't get woken up by my alarm & just slept as needed, I was refreshed & ready to go this morning - night and day difference compared to being woken up mid sleep cycle... Busy day today (running a booth at World on the Square in Corydon for my wife's school), but planning on giving 1 full scoop a shot tonight.

    Jealous of the home gym!

    Good squats man. Id focus on just opening your knees up some more and that'll help. Strong erectors will keep ya from "good morning'ing" the weight up.

    Ive been sleeping like a rock with G8. It's definetly awesome stuff

    Once I get a cage, I'll be set...

    I will work on that more. Makes sense. In the "so you think " vids, he kept saying something about the movement being out to in vs up and down. I think I'm starting to get what you both are referring to. Thanks a lot!

    Getting woken up mid sleep cycle is bad stuff. G8 should keep you in the REM where the best recovery is going on with no problems.

    Im going to echo what the others are saying about the rounding of the back. I think in the vids they relate it to form breaking down but im not pro squater. Lol

    G8 really is a great supplement but i think no matter what you take if you get woken in the middle of a sleep cycle its going to be rough.

    Watching your squat vid and hearing Eddie Vedder made me laugh. Went to pizza a couple months back and he was at the restaurant. Funny, he's about 5' even. Always figured him to be bigger.

    If you are attempting power lifting as opposed to doing a olympic / body builder type of squat lower the bar on your trap. As a matter of fact it should almost be in between your rear delts and your traps. This will help with leaning too far. When you have the bar high up on your traps like you have it you are setting yourself up for more of an olympic lift. This means you are going to lower yourself in more of a vertical line with knees going forward. Trying to "sit back" into a squat with the bar that high up on your traps is putting you in a mechanical disadvantage. The leverage point is all off which makes you fold over. Just as much as you are driving through the heels you should be arching your back doing both of these with massive intent with the bar in the correct position lower on your traps will greatly help your drive out of the bottom and keep you from folding up so much.

    Thanks a lot for the input guys!

    One of these days, once I feel I've got my sh!t together a bit more, I'd like to try my hand at a competition....

    Deload this week - good opportunity to work on form, albeit somewhat tortuous to get started in the morning, as I skip my PWO for deloads.

    Nothing much to report on G8 or BCAA today - sipped BCAA throughout this morning (tastes & mixes great), but did not take G8 last night.

    That's awesome - I hadn't listened to them in a while, but a buddy & I were talking about PJ a couple days before, so I threw Vitalogy on -


    yeah - his stuff for that movie was great. I heard some new Pearl Jam the other day that sounded like old-school heavy punk rock -

    My deloads always turn into normal workouts by the second set of the first exercise.

    Surprisingly no... unless hair is frizzy or has product, it doesn't really seem to burn. However I barely have any arm hair...

    I can tell you this much, 5-3-1 wouldn't work without the deload. I'm at the stage where I'm pulling 2.3 times my body weight on my LIGHT weeks, and I don't really consider any of my workouts light anymore. My joints, muscles, CNS, and overall well being would be down the drain in a few months at this point without them. At first you can skip them or alternate cycles, but either the weight or your personal limits will push you, it's just a matter of when. Putting in solid work at ~55-65% and focusing on your form and assistance weak points during the deload week goes a long way towards making big gains during the normal training cycle.

    I've had a lot of guys lately ask me how I've increased my strength so much over the past 6 months, etc. I always answer honestly, tell them I workout 1 day less than I used to, do less sets and reps than I used to, and work a lot harder at the work I put in, focusing on small gains every session and maximum recovery. Guys say oh yeah, really? But I doubt they believe me. It really is a great program and a solid formula for success. I'm going into my 7th cycle and nothing has plateaued and gains have been solid. I never had a real program before, I played around with a few but never really liked them, but I like the simplicity mixed with the rigidity of this program. I know what I am supposed to do every workout, and I have to do it. not guessing or making up weights or reps or doing whatever I feel like. And no overcomplicated workouts and endless sets and reps of mediocre exercises that don't really develop long term strength or size gains.

    roughly 2/3 scoop G8 last night - I was out like a light & didn't wake up until my alarm. It was magnificent! We were both feeling tired kinda early, so instead of veggin on the couch, took my G8 & hit the hay. The taste isn't anything I'd sip on & savor, but not really the point of it either. Woke up feeling like a million bucks this morning!
