    Sweet, thanks for the links! Fortunately I'm going a gallon at a time, so once this skim is finished I'll get the whole milk. Maybe that way I can cut down my consumption to 3/4 of a gallon or something. I weighed in at 192.0 today, and I don't think that I've put on too much fat, but then again, that's hard to tell.


  2. Friday 12-28-07

    Body weight: 191.4
    Squats: (45x5 135x5x2 185x5 205x3) 225x5x3 (PR)
    Press: (45x5 95x5 115x2) 125x5x2 (PR)
    Power Cleans: (45x4) 135x3x3
    Plus some ab work.

    Gotta go to the crappy gym (CRCE) until January 2nd.

    I decided to use a belt on the heavy squats and it made a world of difference. My low bar position has also greatly improved since last time. I'd say that I'm 80% there with finding that sweet spot on my back. If I can get my grip just a little bit narrower (flexibility issue) then I'll be set.

    My left shoulder was acting up a bit on the press so I only did two sets.

    As far as power cleans, I severely underestimated how nice it is to be able to drop the bar on the floor. Since I didn't want to kill my wrists, I used a lighter weight and less sets.

    Overall, not a bad workout. I can't wait to crack open that gallon of whole milk that I just bought.

  3. I'm hoping for some recommendations on the following daily diet:

    3/4 Gallon of whole milk
    100 grams of whey protein
    1 cup of raw oats
    4 oz of salmon/other meat
    1/2 cup of "smart eggs"
    53 grams of Kashi Crunch cereal
    + Veggies and fruits thrown in
    + one meal out like subway, or the equivalent prepared at home

    Without the veggies and the extra meal this is 2980 calories,
    with 120g fat, 237 g carbs, and 243 grams of protein. The split is 35% fat, 31% carbs, and 34% protein.

    I'm guessing that with the extra meal it might be close to 3600 with a similar macronutrient spread.

  4. Monday 12-31-07

    Body weight: 191.6
    Squats: (45x5x3 135x5x2 185x3 205x2) 230x5x3 (PR)
    Dumbbell Bench: (40x5 55x3 65x2) 70x8 70x5 70x4
    Back Extensions: {bw}x10x3
    Chin-ups: {bw}x8 {bw}x5 {bw}x3

    Not bad. I went up 5 lbs on the squats, and I feel that I might have been able to push more. I can't wait until Wednesday when I can finally go to the good gym, use normal-sized dumbbells, a proper bar for chin-ups, and do some round-plate deadlifts. Hooray! And to all a happy New Year

  5. Wednesday 1-2-08

    Body weight: 190.4
    Squats: (45x5x2 135x5x2 205x2) 225x5
    Press: (45x5 95x5 115x2) 125x5x3 (PR)
    Deadlift: (135x5 225x3 315x1) 355x5 (PR)

    I took it easy on the squats since I woke up at 10:37 and was in the gym at 11:30. jas123 mentioned that I hold my bar a bit too far from my face on the press, and that my upper back is a bit arched on my deads. I'll try to fix both, but I'm especially worried about deadlifts. I'll bring a camera and take some squat videos on Friday, and also some deadlift videos next time I deadlift.

  6. Excellent work today. I love the K gym environment. There's a good crew there.

    Definitely. Good job on the PR's.
    Are you going to be in Altgeld today? I'll burn you a CD with some CrossFit videos that you should check out.

  8. Yeah, I will in the evening for sure, maybe around 7 or 8.

  9. Scratch that Poly, I won't be around. Forgot about the WVU - OU game.

  10. Friday 1-4-08

    Body weight: 191.2
    Squats: (45x5x3 135x5 185x5 205x3) 235x5 235x3
    Dumbbell Bench: (45x5 55x4) 75x8 75x6 70x4
    Back Extensions: {bw}x10
    Chin-ups: {bw}x8 {bw}x7 {bw}x4
    plus some power clean work.

    I was sick today so I'm pretty happy with these numbers. I hope that I get over this cold/flu pretty fast.

  11. Your power cleans were looking really good (of course I don't know my form). Thanks for the vid clips from Cross Fit. BTW, chicks in spandex shorts doing Oly lifts might be the hottest thing to me. Does that make me weird?

  12. This chick could easily choke your penis out cold with her glutes. Not the best vid to show her ridiculous glute development, but you can kind of tell.

    Naw man. I take a similar view on the matters

  14. Her face ain't great, but damn there's just something about the outfits and oly lifts. I'd like to see her snatch.

  16. Google her if you haven't already. Her face isn't that bad, their are some shots somewhere of her in a speedsuit that are mind altering.

  17. I'd let her "clean and jerk" it. Please insert Wandy gif.

    I'm sure she shaved off all the imperfections from her form.

    I hope there were no bumps in the road along the way.

  20. Monday 1-7-08

    Body weight: 190.2
    Squats: (45x5x3 135x5x2 185x5 205x2) 235x5x2
    Press: (45x5 95x5 115x2) 127.5x5 127.5x4 127.5x3
    Power cleans: (45x5 110x2) 155x3x3 155x2 155x3

    Still recovering from the cold, but overall not bad.

  22. Wednesday 1-9-08

    Body weight: 192.0
    Squats: (45x5x3 145x5x2 185x5) 235x2
    Dumbbell Bench: (45x5 55x5) 70x8 70x6 70x5
    Back extensions: {bw}x10
    Chin-ups: {bw}x9 {bw}x5
    plus some power clean, snatch, and grip work.

    The weights felt pretty heavy today, so I think that I should probably eat more and make Wednesday a front squat day. We'll see how that works.

  23. Friday 1-11-08

    Body weight: 192.8
    Squats: (45x5x4 135x5x2 185x5 205x3) 235x5x2
    Press: (45x5 95x5) 127.5x3 120x4
    Deadlifts: (135x5 225x5) 315x5

    I have not recovered from Wednesday. Not much at all. This probably has something to do with yesterday's schedule and not eating as much. I think that I'll take Monday easy to be sure that I recover for Wednesday.

    Here are two deadlift videos from today. I'd appreciate any comments, especially since I'm worried about how my back is looking in these.

    225x5:



    315x5:


  24. Are you sure that you're 6'1"? You look really tall, seems like quite a journey from start to finish. Looks like you need to keep your ass down and your head up and have it be more of a fluid motion. It kinda seems like you're performing 2 lifts in 1.

  25. p.s. do you have the belt wrapped around your nipples? Looks like it's up pretty high.

  26. Bump on Poly possibly actually being Shawn Bradley.

  27. Poly's 6' 2'' max. He's just lanky.

    It does look a little too mechanical to me as well, but I think it's your lowering. I do it more stiff legged so that you don't have to go around your knee. I know Rip recommends the lowering that way, though.

  28. Poly, check out alexeev's 507 press again sometime. It's total BS as he bends his knees to drive it up.

    Yeah, I agree about the ass down part and my head up. I don't have a very good idea about how low my ass is relative to be the rest of my body, I think. As far as height, I'm 6'1 but I might appear taller as the weightlifting shoes have a pretty thick heel, and the person taking the vid is my 5'0 girlfriend.

    Oh man, I paused it at the right moment and his knees are absolutely bent. Well, they didn't have instant playback then I guess.

    Also, when/why the hell did you yack 8 times while walking.

  30. I think I just ate too fast because I was in a hurry, but it was unusual for sure.
