    hahahaha that's really funny!

    anyway -- i think the interviews went really really well, thanks. it was two 30 minute interviews testing different aspects of my technical knowledge, and thought about consulting (it was a consulting firm that i was interviewing with). They'll have an answer for me within two weeks when i'll have a month to decide whether or not i want the job.

    well...i was not feelin it tonight -- kinda felt run down when i got to the gym.

    squats:
    dynamic stretching and 135x5 to warmup
    working sets: 215x3, 245x3, 275x3

    walking lunges:
    105lbs, 5 sets, usually 10-12 steps

    step ups:
    105x8, 105x8

    leg press (on nautilus)
    200x10, 250x10, 300x10, 350x10, 400x10, 450x10

    stretched out legs, rolled out the back, did a few weighted ab crunches.

    on another note, i decided to weigh myself. came in at 146, which is the most i think i've weighed in during a workout. i don't think it's all that descriptive of my actual weight, but i periodically weigh myself intra W/O because the scale there is supposedly really accurate. pleased to see a number over 145, usually been comin in around 143 or 144.

    haha thanks, SB. i never like weighted dips before, but i liked 'em last night cause i was using a belt to hold the weight instead of my ankles to hold a dumbbell. i also really liked those weighted pullups and am going to start doing those instead of regular pullups.

    Really? I love them, but I definitely prefer holding a DB between my feet, as opposed to using a belt or chain and adding weight to that (and besides, your feet get stronger having to hold DB heavier than 50lb )

    yea, i mean the last time i did weighted dips was at least a month ago, and so maybe (wishful thinking maybe?) i've just gotten stronger to the point where it wouldn't make too much of a difference if i held a DB between my feet or using a belt. Either way, i'm gonna be lookin to put more weighted BW exercises in my workouts.

    you put the weight between your feet? i think when i did 'em last, i held the weight with my calves/ankles. you think that makes any difference?

    There would be a difference between using a DB or a weighted belt/chain, as the former would allow one to go go straight up and down (i.e. no lean/tilt) doing Dips; whereas the latter would cause a slight tilt forwards, due to the way the weight falls.

    Yes, I put the DB between my feet ('plate' of the DB covers my feet, the medial edge of my feet in contact with where you would hold the DB if it were in your hands). Holding the DB between my ankles/calves would make a definite difference, and would for anyone else, compared to holding the DB between their feet (that's a lot of pressure on your ankles).

    makes sense. so when you do weighted dips, do you keep your legs straight or have them bent behind you?

    EDIT: yea...nevermind that...totally missed it on the first go...
