My sister is moving from your area as well, gonna miss the pizza and delis.
bigjrock first week ive felt comfortable with the volume. maybe ive just accepted my fate.
also was told i wasnt finishing my squats. i get plenty deep but i wasn’t bringing my hips through and that was leaving the weight on my back too much. my lower back feels a bit easier the day after squats today. wild how you get off on things like that.
Yeah, you just have to embrace the suck. And once you get back down to sets of 6 or 4, they are going to feel real good. I'm definitely feeling stronger through the strength blocks after the hypertrophy block.
Embrace the suck is a pretty great way to describe this whole thing
I'm doing open water swimming again this summer as well as keeping my routine, I will be fully embracing the suck.
Chad builds the shit out of that work capacity
Hit a high bar single at 475. I’m never squatting with the SSB again
Weren't you over 500?
My comp best is 529. That 475 was a single @8. I’d say if I competed this weekend I’d be good for 510-515. So I’ve got a hole to climb out of for a PR, but I think we’ve got a good plan in place
Nothing like what you clowns are doing, but I pulled 225 for the first time today for three reps. I probably have a lot more in me, but I’m really careful with this stuff. I can’t afford to get hurt, especially if we’re talking about a back injury.
Really focusing on bracing and not taking a set to failure and you should be pretty safe
Did a pretty crazy upper body day today while still having enough hamstring soreness that I'm pretty much just falling down on the toilet when I shit. Great times.
whatever happened to Where Eagles Dare , hope you haven't gained 50 pounds being lazy.
Just not posting much right now
Started tracking macros again and holy shit has my diet been off. My protein intake has been barely half of what I thought it was
hensleya wrist straps rec, please and thank you.
Agreed on ironmind.

tfw you don't have ten friends to tag in the comments.
Thing is kinda blowing up since Pioneer reposted it. 1k new followers so far, which is pretty neat. Fingers crossed for you boys.
this post was a complete lie and the original poster doesn't know what the fuck he's talking about.
how bad is it?
last night was
5x12 paused HB squat
superset box step-ups/single leg rdl 5x15-20
superset rope pull through/calf raise 3x15-20
arnold press 3x15-20
leg curls 3x 15-20
couple that with 90+ heat in our gym, a belly full of pastrami and cheese from lunch and i was drenched in sweat just doing warmups. now i've got day 2 DOMS from wednesdays upper body work. couldn't even wipe my ass this morning without something cramping up.
and there is nothing less impressive in my gym than humping a rope for 15 reps before waddling over to do calf raises on the leg press.
Ugh, for by my knee wraps at home after traveling
I feel so naked without them
This is why we video every set. Realized I wasn’t bracing properly in my squats which led to some problems downstream. 475 top single. No good morning, no back flexion to hit depth, etc. Squats are back.
Have definitely reached levels of soreness I've never had before this week, couldn't even do 1 dip today and had to skip my 2nd deadlift day bc my hamstrings feel like they're about to pop. Also stubbed my toe so hard the other morning that it turned purple for a while. Fun times.
Last week before my "test cut". Since I've been floating around the upper end of my weight class, I probably need to slim up a bit. My next meet isn't until September, so figured I'd try out a month during the summer just to see how it worked out.
Capstone 88 How's RP going?
It’s good man. I’m leaning out and steadily dropping weight. I could definitely be more compliant, but overall it’s going well
Had an incredibly rough week, took it easy for a bit, ready to kill it tomorrow. 460 x3 x 3 is gonna be fun.
after taking 3 hours to do a workout at my school gym that should take no more than 1 at a normal gym i am so ready to be in a different city
boston has to be easily the worst place in the country if you want to lift weights
This reminds me...
What is the "standard" fee for week passes at a powerlifting gym? I've got a couple trips planned over the summer/fall and I'd like to be able to keep the party going.
total performance sports does day passes ($10) and punch cards (5-10 visits), but that is the extent of my experience with that
Here’s to getting a new belt tonight
Ended up with almost 11,000 comments, which crushes the former highest of 4K. Good luck bruh.
Where ya going bigjrock
How hard do you strong people push Romanians?
Hands were beat the fuck up after I got half my workout done in the morning and said there was no way I was doing volume, so just built up to 3x3 at 350. Wasn't that bad but the hardest I've ever pushed Romanians.
I’ve never really done them under 6 reps. I try to keep high intensity and low volume to the big 3, but I’ve someone wanted to train the RDL sad a “comp movement” then that would be completely fine. I think they’re the best deadlift accessory.
Pretty much everything from Eastern Europe/Eurasia is the fucking devil but they make the man.
Get some straps? I usually gun for the 8-rep range for RDLs myself.
Could have sucked it up, wanted to experiment a bit with higher weight
Hope everyone survives Murph today
Back in the calorie logging game
Does anyone have any methods for dealing with ground meats? I cook ~5lb of ground turkey in an instant pot, and a lot of the fat gets cooked off and disposed of.
I was thinking of doing the following but I'm bad at science things so this might be way off:
1. weigh starting water liquid (W) before cooking
3. weigh ending liquid, which is now starting water + fat runoff (F)
4. calculate oz of fat lost to be F - W = L
5. subtract L from both the total fat content oz & total meat weight oz
6. re-adjust P/oz & F/oz based on new total weight, assume no P was lost in cooking
This sounds right in my head but it assumes that all runoff is 100% fat and that no protein or other weight is lost in cooking. Not sure either of those are true.
