  1. Hope everything goes well. We'll have you in our thoughts and prayers.
  2. Friday, Week 6: I was hoping to put a significant dent in the weight left for the challenge, but I guess a year of slacking can't be overcome by just 6 weeks of work. As I had time to spend in the gym this morning, I took some form check video. Wt: 254.9, BF: 30.2, ICW: 82.2, ECW: 48.3, TBW: 130.5 Squats: BWX10, 45x5, 95x5, 135x5, 185x5, 225x3, 230 5x5 form check OHP: 85x5, 105x5, 125x3, 130 5x5 DL: 185x5, 225x5, 275x3, 295x5 ties x5 PR form check After that, time for StW volume circuit: everything x10 Squats 155, bench 135, DL 185, DB rows 65 each arm; x6 I calculated that I would need 14 circuits to break 100,000 pounds in this workout. I am pretty much tapped out after 4, going to see if I can get 3 more through sheer stubbornness. Got 2 more, stubbornness was becoming stupidity at this point. Calling it done. So I ended up with 53,250 pounds moved for the challenge. I am a tad disappointed, since I had 3 days where I posted more than 100,000 pounds for last year's winter volume challenge.
  3. Back at it after some time off, then some time on. I did 295x5 which ties my 5rep max. I think these look pretty good, but I am perhaps biased.
  4. Hi everybody! I'm back after a bit of a hiatus. I pretty much stopped going to the gym after the video for the above form check was shot, until the beginning of this most recent 6 week challenge that is. I have gotten the weight lifted back to where it was, so I figured it would be a good time for a new form check. I think I actually look to be having an easier time of it now than I was back in June. I think my overall depth is a touch better, though there is still room for improvement.
  5. Wednesday, Week 6: Wt: 251.5, BF: 29.8, ICW: 81.8, ECW: 47.6, TBW: 129.4 Squats: BWX10, 45x5, 95x5, 135x5, 185x5, 225 5x5; 1st set felt better than Monday's, the rest felt pretty good, no knee pain, 185x15 Tried to keep to ~3 minutes between sets. BBRow: 130 5x5, x10 Bench: 135x5, 180 5x5, 135x14, #15 just was not going to make it all the way up.
  6. Are those ^^^ cheeseburgers on split donuts?
  7. I have a Polar heart rate monitor that I use for calories burned. It seems fairly accurate from the data I collected last year. It runs quite a bit higher than what MFP gives for calories burned for weight training. I just manually adjust the number burned for recording purposes, though right now I am not tracking all my intake.
  8. Monday, Week 6: Wt: 256.0, BF: 29.8, ICW: 82.7, ECW: 49.4, TBW: 132.1 Squats: BWX10, 45x5, 95x5, 135x5, 185x5, 225 3x5, 2; 1st set felt about the same as Friday's, resting about 3:30 between sets, sets 2 and 3 were fine; on 2nd rep of set 4, my left knee burned a bit on the way up. I adjusted my stance as I think my feet were a bit more forward than usual, dropped into the whole and the burn was there, so I folded forward to put the bar on the safeties. That was it for squats today. OHP: 85x5, 105x5, 125x3, 127.5 5x5 DL: 185x5, 225x5, 275x1, 285x5 Not too shocked that my weight was up; I suspect water is involved, as my ring was extra tight this morning. There has been no residual pain in the knee, so I'm not really sure what that was all about. I think I'll try to spend some time with the foam roller and voodoo floss tonight. Micro-loading the OHP seems to be working quite well. I am able to be explosive enough to make the weights rattle the bar even on the last few reps. Deadlifts were good.
  9. Week 5, Recap: Gym: 3/3 lifting is going well, getting back to my heaviest weights Tracking: mediocre, have a 36 day streak on MFP, but not tracking everything. Running: 1/2 weather this time of year has not been helping Guitar: 2/5 I think, I may have done one more, but need to do more.
  10. Sunday, Week 5: Took the pooch for a run, partly because she was needing to burn some energy, and partly because of previous post. Run: 2.12 miles in 24:22, runkeeper ranks this as my 5th fastest time for 1-3 miles.
  11. Saturday, Week 5: Today was Cookie Day, an annual holiday in the Kopec household. There were still 2 or 3 more types of cookies to be made at this point. My wife has been holding Cookie Day with some of her friends for 7 or 8 years now. My children were very surprised when they learned that Cookie Day was not, in fact, a national holiday.
  12. Maybe once team Badass saves the ISS, both teams can work together to save the bacon.
  13. Friday, Week 5: Wt: 251.3, BF: 28.9, ICW: 82.9, ECW: 48.3, TBW: 131.2 Squats: BWX10, 45x5, 95x5, 135x5, 185x5, 220 5x5 1st set was heavy, 2nd felt better, 3rd was good, 4th was good too, finished 5th strong, 175x10 BBRow: 125 5x5, x10 Bench: 135x5, 175 5x5,
