  1. Hello I am Jakob, I recently changed my name, which used to be substix. After a while of being a ranger and training in rangery things I discovered that my favourite thing to do is lifting weigths. So I decided to join the noble ranks of the warriors. To keep this short and sweet, here's my goals: Number 1, Lift heavy hsit I'm doing SS as stipulated by mark rippetoe. I've been doing it for 5 workouts now, going to the gym 3 times a week. Progress so far has been good, and I hope to keep it at linear progression. Actual numbers to follow! +3STR +2STA Number 2, eat healthy I'll eat 100
  2. Thanks a lot! Very kind of you If I manage to hit every rep I should be able to get to 100x5 just in time for the bet. Definately pushing hard for this one. Lots of pride on the line here! I wanted to use the Failing grade as extra motivation so I at least do really (like REALLY) well on the one exam I'm taking (analysis/calculus). But you're right I learned a lot here, and I am proud of that. Thank you very much!
  3. I feel your pain after starting out doing Overhead Presses for the first time this week. I desperately need a good stretch for trapeziuses. Lightning always comes before the thunder because light is faster than sound. If it was the first electric discharge of that particular thudnerstorm no headphones wouldn't have changed anything looking forward to your grading an general words of wisdom!
  4. Very well done! Completely beat me for grade average! And almost got straigth As. You're doing really awesome! I hope you can keep it up for the next challenge, looking forward to reading your new goals!
  5. Hello LeeAnn Sorry for not checking in for a while, I was crazy busy aswell! Your Challenge seems to have gone quite well! Except for the food goal (Where you were kinda harsh in gradin yourself as it seems to me). Practice makes perfect, and with a little bit more practise your eating habits will become perfect aswell! Just keep at it
  6. Congrats on 2 As! I hope you med work on the second cycle! And that you can get back into exercising rather easily after your surgery!
  7. End of Challenge summary: IAMSTRONG I hit 5x100kg on deadlifts last monday, so this is a solid A right here, giving me an A, +4STR Not much to say here, I followed linear progression, hit all my planned reps and sets and as expacted had an easy time Lifting 100kg 5 times. Sidegoal: Squat is currently at 60x5x3, I didn't really focus on in improving this, and considering the deload I did last week, the only way I'm gonna be at 100x5 by next wednesday is if I increase my Squat by 10kg every workout from now till the fifth. Which might be doable, I'll certainly try my best. IAMBALANCED 'Twa
  8. Another Update: I spontaiously decided to do deload week on my squat to give my knee some more time to get better. Had to figure out how to do goblet squats since I haven't done that before. Took 3 sets to figure out how to hold the DB correctly It's working really well though, I think it's back to normal already. Still deloading on Friday just to be safe Handstands are still stomewhat troubling but I think I'll be able to crush another 10s easily on friday. Still have to actually log a 5k run, gonna do this tomorrow probably. Hope you have a good time! I'm doing well
  9. With 1 Day delay, still a modnay update: IAMSTRONG Officially completed with an A grade! Did 5 Repetitions of 100kg, first three went really smooth, had a bit of a form issue on nr 4, did the fifth bu the book again. Felt really awesome! IAMBALANCED Wish the same would apply to handstands. I usually manage one 7-8seconds handstand every training session now, but I really want to crack the 10s once again. My main problem is that I get curious about time, so I shift my head, which makes me fall over 9 tims out of 10. The time keeping is developing to be quite the issue here :/ IAMALEAFONT
  10. I did. Turns out he went out of his way to be as unhelpful as possible. That's just the relationship we have though. I just picked the one from his delivery site that sounded like it had the least chemistry crap in it. Also went for neutral flavour to keep it clean! Thanks for your advice tough! Appreaciate it a lot
  11. When it comes to physical health better safe than sorry! The exam story is a bit longer: at first I though 3 would be easy as deadlifting 60k but turns out for one there's no script, only a 400 page book that I really can't afford right now. The 2 math exams had scripts and I thought to myself get the script, work it through, study some previous exams, pass easily. So I randomly chose one, which turned out to be double the amount of work of the other and I didn't even manage to work through it once despite all the time I put in (In all honesty that was about 75% of my maximum study effort). So
  12. w00t's gone mainstream ever since it's word-of-the-year award in ' 07. Although technically that's been long enough for it to be brought back. I liked their earlier stuff though. Before they came popular. congrats on picking a job kev!
  13. Today at the gym: It was 8x4 day, and I was squatting, feeling good, when suddenly on the 7th rep of the 4th set (squatting 60kg) my knee made this freakishly uncomfortable cracking sound. I immediately reracked the bar and started to test range of motion. There was no pain, but more cracking when I moved it. I've had this before, I like to call it a minor hiccup, but just to be safe I didn't do my Deadlifts after that. Cracking is gone by now, as it usually does after a while. No reason for concern really, but I'm a little agitated that I couldn't finish my workout. rest of my goals a
  14. The reason I want to get some protein shake stuff is that I have a really hard time getting my bodyweigth in g protein a day at the moment, even with eating eggs and meat every day. That and my brother has offered to pay because he had such great success. I try to be 100% paleo. At the moment I'm not, but starting next week it's gonna be priority one again. So ideally it would have to be 100% protein. Which I'm guessing is impossible, so whatever is closest to that with the least other stuff added is what I'm gunning for. Taste is irrelevant to me. As this is a thing I am doing out of necc
  15. Building habits (and getting rid of bad ones aswell) takes time! At some point you will be able to resist, until you can refues entirely. In the meantime get right back on the horse and finish strong!
