Nice work Rocket!I hit my goal last week (week 1) and lost 4 lbs, this week my goal was 2 lbs but I only lost 1. The good news is I did drop down 1 notch on the belt, so the fat is coming off. Adding in True Shred this week so I will shoot for a 2 lbs loose this week again. May next week I will add in Muscle Sculptor ( @musclemaker your thoughts ?)
Starting with 2 plates? LOL! Hack squat is a different game. I started with only the sled until I had total control -even doing it slow-mo. Then gradually putting weight on it. My actual gym has no hack squat, somehow miss it.Leg day today and time to try Hack Squats with the Knee Sleeves, so I thought I would start with one big wheel (45lbs) on each side, (4) sorry reps with little range of motion, so I thought I would take all the weight off and just check out the range of motion. First set 5 reps - 10 reps - 15 reps (3) sets no weight, but on a positive note I have not done Hack Squats in 5 or more years, so I think with the knee sleeves I should be able to slowly work my way up!!
Yeah you aren’t alone. I did something similar, just not hack squats. Back in high school, I took a weight training class. Junior year, I struggled to improve my squats, and every time we tested, I had a hell of a time getting my butt low enough. Senior year, I decided to nail down the form before I tried to bump up the numbers. I was literally squatting 95 pounds or less the first time. But by the first test, I had already matched the same max I had worked up to the previous year (375 pounds). But I felt better, and progressed a lot faster. Nail down form, the weight will come later.Glad I'm not the only one using only the sled !!
I’m same way, I have to really warm up the movement on the empty sled and can’t go more than a couple plates without pain. It’s definitely a mind-muscle movement.Glad I'm not the only one using only the sled !!
Only protein I’ve tried from Sparta, and the last I’ll waste my money on. They nailed the flavor, profile is solid, but the consistency is terrible at any amount of water. Gritty. It was a serious chore to finish that tub.It is Very Good !!

If somebody makes it with cold milk it really does taste like fruit loop milk, but I don’t have calories to waste on that lol
I do a 40 G protein shake and a packet of oatmeal about an hour and a half before trainingI have trained in the AM Fasted for 20+ years, tomorrow I am going to try eating a few Carbs (banana) and a Protein Shake with about 25 grams of Protein before my workout. I also have some Cream of Rice I will try. I hoping I can get a little better pump and maybe some increase in size (not my waist). I got some tips from MrKleen73 and TheSolution that should help me with this.
I think I will invite a few friends to this party.
