I'm a *****
Felt like ****, back was a little sore. 2nd leg workout since starting up after disc injury in February. Added 50lbs to squat 5x5 since last workout. Will proceed to add more weight each week until comfortable. Ended at about 375 for 5x5 before injury. 100 lbs to get back there. Squatted in the Vibram Five Fingers shoes. Felt nice. Easier to determine where weight is being distributed. I am having problems keeping the weight off the front of my feet.

Keep your toes off of the ground, that will help push the weight onto your heel. Also depending on how your set up is you could probably open your feet up a bit if they are straight.Muscle Pharm Rep

Nice to hear some feedback on the shoes.
You may want to try a lower bar position to let you move more weight, and I find keeping my hands inside the power rings and elbows pulling down helps a lot. You might also try some higher-rep "back off sets" at the end instead of ham curl/quad extension...
Good mornings and RDLs = good too...
EDIT: Oh, yeah, IMO 15 with the bar is a waste of energy.

Oh yeah...this is THE solution to being able to stay on your heels, trust me...

Do it ED for a while then before workouts until you are where you want to be with your squats.

Nice pump tonight. Starting to enjoy working out late a little more. It's nice not having to weave around people and wait for equipment. Couple hotties like to work out late also so that's always nice. No other comments really. Vascularity was still up from the carb load this past weekend. Weight drop is still happening. Can't wait to begin bulking, though. Will be taking tomorrow off.

Good workout, good pump. Lots of douchebags in the gym today. Most noticeably one guy wearing a skull cap rocking a terribly hunched over back from only going chest and never ever working out the back. Best part was his grunting. You would have thought he was giving birth. He had legs so skinny that he might rival a supermodel.
Hardly any DOMS from this weeks squat day. Much better than last week when I couldn't walk. Shoulders and traps tomorrow. Should be a good time.

10 minute walk
8 minute jog
Was gonna jog for 15 minutes but I had to get off. I felt like I was going to pass out. Had to be the leg workout before as during rugby matches I run a **** load and am fine. Gonna start doing crossfit in the mornings 2 or 3 times a week.

I haven't worked out since Monday. Kinda feel like a ***** but I've been swamped with school work and burdened with a paper on Rawlsian theory. Problem was that I hadn't done any of the reading and I knew nothing about Rawlsian theory. Had to spend the week catching up and then an all day writing session yesterday. Still a bit swamped with another fairly large paper due Monday, but I may get in some lifting sessions either today, tomorrow or Sunday.
Up early today for the first time in a long time; 0445 to be exact. I am going to keep my run times to myself because they're embarrassing (to me) but my workout this morning looked like this:
1 mile run
Superset of [25 pushup, 25 4-count flutterkicks, 25 air squats complete with arm raise] x 4
1 mile run
Comments: It was interesting that my second mile run was only 21 seconds slower than my first. It felt like I was going to be 2 minutes over. It's safe to say that my muscular and cardiovascular endurance are in the ****ter; cardiovascular recovery is pretty quick, however. Looking forward to more progress and working my way up to some big distance. Got practice tonight and a match tomorrow; should be a good time. Not sure if I'll make it to lift today. I'm sure I'll be pretty daggon tired later today.

Was busy over the weekend with a combination of Rugby, heavy drinking, assignments and baseball. Therefore didn't get any workouts in aside from a match on Saturday. Slept through my alarm yesterday, too, so no workout there either. However, I did get out this morning. ****inballs cold!
1 mile run
(200m sprint/200m walk) x 4
1 mile walk
Was planning on doing my calisthenics this evening but didn't get around to it with class and homework. Kinda upset with myself, oh well. Got a 4 mile ruck in the morning. Not sure what weight I'll be packing. I can't seem to find my weights so I might have to create something. I also need to actually get to the gym sometime soon. I'm going through withdrawal.

Skipped the ruck this morning because it was raining and I couldn't find **** to weigh my pack down. I'm not that 'core' yet anyways.

This log is officially over. I really ****ed up my MCL yesterday in a match. The combination of adrenaline during the match and drugs/alcohol after the match masked the pain. I woke up this morning and was in a good amount of pain. I'm fairly certain it's just a severe strain. Will probably get an MRI just to be certain. I'll definitely be out for a while, though.
