wow.... today tried to match my PR of 185x2 for power cleans and I dropped the second one (Well almost... saved it but skinned my chest and arms saving my floor...) I had a technical failure on the second clean's first pull so I just tried to pull the double w/o resetting... never again. lol.RecoverBro ELITE

Overhead squatting is pretty difficult without Olympic weightlifting shoes. I started out overhead squatting onto a bench seat because I couldn't mentally get myself to squat down without the bench under me lol

185x1 (failed the double... was horrible)
185x2x12 (20-30 seconds between sets)
100 pull ups
Time 12mins 8 seconds.
I have determined that my biceps are a real problem right now for my clean and my pull ups... When they get pumped I can't rack the bar well and when I do pull ups they limit how "high" i can get at the top. By no means are the FCKING HYOOOGE. but still they are a bit bigger than I need them to be. Hopefully it's mostly fat and will burn off w/o sacrificing my wonderful on the run, out stretched, on the rise forehands for tennis..... well regardless hopefully if I lose some more weight I can actually get to the ball in time so I'm not doing some ridiculous shot that I should be able to hit clean...

I know this sounds patronizing- widen the grip on th pullups? It would open the angle of the elbow at the top of the concentric part- just a thought.

Would definitely bring the lats in more as well. Though I train pull ups mainly for upright stability on my standing OHP and front squats so my hand position mimics the plane I use for those... Good advice though. Just that going from a BB back to a performance athlete... The body just isn't proportionate.... Specially for something like tennis... Lmao.Originally Posted by sae2110

That could be it. When I was doing pull ups on Saturday I was able to hit bw+45x3 (never did weighted pull ups before) but I was able to get my chest over the bar. I guess I wasn't in practice.Originally Posted by MrKleen73

Nice work there bro, 100 pulls for time is some BA stuff.

Today I did my OHP 3s
235x5 (These were ass to ankles so very different from what I was doing previously of Sumo style squat. This is basically to prep for when I can do front squats)
Hang power cleans
Sadly my hang cleans are more muscled... gotta work on that. Seems from the ground I can just deadlift it and continue it all the way to receiving it in the power position, but if I take it above the knee I just muscle it up... Gotta work on that. I think tomorow I will do that.
Also, I realize now that I have allergies to BOTH eggs and whey... So my eggs are being banned from my diet, along with my protein bars that I had bought as portable nutrition. I think I will just stick to fats and my BCAAs. (Currently Purple Wraath) Hopefully when my mom gets here for a vacation there will be some thing I can eat w/o gluten... I found though that ALL meats cooked in any type of sauce/flavoring are BASED in flour here (and in most Asian cuisine) so that the flavor is better received by the food... man.. that blows. But I guess that would explain why there is always wheat in every single dish at every single restaurant I visit... And custom order... in Japan that just simply doesn't exist. You get what they serve you.

Hmm. So anabeta ran out two days ago.
And I stopped exemestane as well. Started up what's left of bridge.
So basically the only non staple stuff I'm on ATM is albuterol and bridge.
I'm getting the new DHT PH by FRL/AMS so I will add that when I get back from vacation in June. Should be good. Seeing I am pretty far out of pct and my last run was only 2 weeks (emergency stop). I should get some good strength gains on it.
One thing I'm worried about is my joints are really acting up. Could be due to the added volume in cardio. I will try to see if it goes away somehow lol. Other than that today I will go for a Max effort dead lift and do some snatch work.

Haha He said Snatch...
THat or could be the exemestane was lowering your Estro more than you anticipated.

Matt, on the whole egg issue you are having. What happens when you eat eggs exactly? I have an egg intolerance and you may as well. If you have gotten vaccinations in the past you do not have an egg allergy because eggs are used in the process to make the vaccines. If you did you would have gone into shock. I can't even eat products with a little big of eggs mixed in, like with certain sauces. It sucks lol

Definitely not that bad, the allergic reaction is minor itching and mucus. Like I rarely ever get any type of congestion. About 1-3 hours after I eat eggs or whey I get congested, and itchy... it is definitely minor, but I don't like ANYTHING that will cause a disturbance in my body.
I have never liked mayonnaise though.. what's really interesting to me is that all the foods I never liked when I was young are foods that I seem to be reacting to very negatively now... Like when I was a kid I NEVER drank milk. I hated it. I would eat my Rice Crispys with no liquid. Also, never liked mayo in my sandwiches... hell never even liked the bread.... I honestly hate bread.. unless it's more butter than flour lol.
Sad thing about the egg issue though is that I miss the ArA from it....

On a very happy note I was able to do a full front squat with the bar in the rack position!! Also, did a couple supported hand stand push ups.
05-15-2012, 06:51 PM
I am wondering about low estro.. Any idea on the half life of exem? I've been off it for 4 days and my joints are clicking away lol. Even lowered the volume. Today I think I will do a 10x10 circuit. Kinda similar to what you and TG are doing. Just to give my joints a break from the weights.
