    in regards to my cleans... the time aspect of the thing REALLY makes my cleans WAY faster. It made 135 feel like nothing, and I wasn't even pulling that hard... Being at home I can't explode off the second pull like I usually do (Used to do A LOT of hang power cleans) cause I feel like my floor is gonna break...

    Also, 275x5 deads... haha that felt hella light too. I probably could have done it for 10 but... meh, I am lifting for strength, I'll do speed stuff for reps.

    Gotta increase my Vo2 max and endurance... Tennis season is 12 weeks away, w/o playing tennis I must be in top shape for it.

    I live in an old fashioned Japanese house... Tatami mats are my floors, there is no garage, no outside, no insulation, no hot water... I kid you not... I have a heater outside that heats the water in my tub and I have to use that to shower.. in the winter it's freezing in my house... just 3 more months... and I'll be back home in Hawaii after my 3 year teaching experience lol. Everytime I do a squat the floor gives a good inch... The nearest gym is about 1.5hrs away about $20 one way to get there, and $5 a visit.... I bought my own gym. It was cheaper.

    Holy ****! Props for being resourceful, that floor is scary tho. And you do the high volume crossfit WO's. Anybody live below you? Maybe you should ask them to install some sort of support right under where you lift heavy, luke what is used in a basement to support a sagging floor joist/beam!

    luckily i live on the first floor lol. I've looked under the mats... omfg... there are like 0.5 inch wooden planks randomly placed there... just 2 more months... Hopefully on the weekends I can hit that far expensive gym to pull heavy cleans... I don't think my floor can take cleans any higher than 185.... Well I won't be able to pull them w/o "jumping" so if I do that my floor is bound to go....

    LMAO, I was just thinking about doing ME cleans today... then remembered I might die if I do. Plus I tweaked my right mid back yesterday so I doubt I could pull that heavy.

    BTW, in regards to Osta, 2 weeks you'll be in PCT? WTH are you on now!? lol.

    I found wrapping my wrist before doing cleans offers a nice buffer to prevent and even allow continued healing of injuries to occur, plus it looks kind of bad ass

    im on a lot of joint support though if you don't your joints will kill you.. hdrol just killed me with lethargy. My friends felt the same way on hdrol, but they also feel the same way about epi. But I feel good on epi, could be the stims Ive been using have been keeping the lethargy at bay also, hard to say. Either way, Im not complaining lol I'd go up to 80 mg but that's prob dumb at my size 60 is prob high as it is

    I was using IBE for the first few weeks but they didn't have any more in stock so I had to switch to havoc for the last few weeks. Both seemed to work the same they are interchangeable. Id go with havoc next time just cause its cheaper.

    most oly lifters just drop the bar after lifting as they are only interested in the concentric portion of the lift. My elbow flexibility is too shot to keep that form with wrist warps... lol. I barely catch it correctly... I still can't front squat with that grip. My lowback/ ham strings are too tight. haha.

    I've done Mdrol with stims my friend. My BP does very well on cycle. I rarely go above 130/70.
    Off cycle I am around 100/55.

    I got pretty lucky with my current gym. One of the only local gyms that have bumper plates and condone the Oly lifts. It's going out of business sometime soon, so I'm considering just shelling out the money and building my own in my garage.

    my gym just made a bumper plate corner where we can do cleans and drop the weight. But the weights are larger than the standard weights we use on the barbells. is it normal for the bar to be higher off the ground when doing cleans?

    It's even bigger than the 45? my 20kg plate here in japan is made about 2inches or so longer in diameter. But as far as the 10kgs, and 5kgs they should all be the diameter so that the distance you have to pull the bar off the ground is the same regardless of weight (Provided there is weight on the bar)

    Yeah the 5, 10, 25, 45 etc are all the same size when comparing the bumper plate weights to eachother. But when you compare them to a normal weight that you put on a barbell, for like squats, they are larger than the standard 45 lb weight. Not sure exactly how much bigger tho maybe an few inches in diameter

    Just looked it up, a standard 45lb weight has a 17 3/4-in diameter and a standard Olympic bumper plate has a 17.72in(450mm) diameter

    that is very off then! I noticed this because someone was doing deadlifts with them.. they grabbed a standard 45 lb plate from the other squat racks. You could tell that the standard 45 lb plate was smaller because it didnt meet the ground like the bumper plate did. I'll have to ask the ppl at the gym about this

    Yup, they're slightly smaller. Now that I'm thinking about it, sometimes I would have a bar on the platform with just a bumper 45lb weight on each side, I'd go to put a 45lb iron weight on it too and have to really work to get it on the bar because it made contact with the platform. So it makes since that the bumpers are slightly smaller.

    Hopefully that small paragraph is readable.

    Shucks, guys . Actually I am getting "during bloods" next week that I paid for. Gona hit up the doc for some post cycle bloods when I get my physical in a few months :P. I've never got on cycle bloods before since I just do short methyl cycles, but I am curious to see how suppressed I am at my last week on cycle.

    AWESOME!!

    BTW, yesterday I did some speed cleans like Jay suggested. My god it was good, got a nice stretch too. Another Q!!


    I don't have enough shoulder mobility to do an over head squat (Or hip/low back "give" to get that low w/o lowering my torso) any tips? I know youtube got a ton, but just wondering what you all thought
