  1. Gah! Kinda sorta back. Saw a "nerdfitness" discount code on YouTube and got nostalgic. Meh, I've had a better 8 month period, dealing with lots of death, depression, drinking a bit too much. Haha new definition of Triple D lol. Sorry for being depressing, but happy to see you doing well (enough lol)
  2. These parts seem far more barren than I remember. But I thought I'd drop a post meet recap from my April 7th AAU meet. It's a copy and paste from my personal notes... MEET DAY Did not go as expected. Went to sleep at 130, woke up around 6. Meet started way sooner than I expected, so didnt eat breakfast. SQUAT 2/3 - Warmups went poorly, rack was too high and took few too many awkward warm ups. My fault for not making a better effort. Squats felt off from warm ups. Opened heavier than usual at 424 and wasn't happy with the way it moved, so stayed conservative with 2nd attempt and matched
  3. Hey fucker, happy to see you still alive and kicking
  4. Semi related, look into staggered stance single leg stiff legged deads... with kettlebells...Jesus that was a lot. Sent from my XT1585 using Tapatalk
  5. Mobility work never hurts, but it may simply be a form and/or mental road block. Definitely deload (sorry), and record and post to form check or compare to any number of fitness YouTubers. Sent from my XT1585 using Tapatalk
  6. Listen to all three of these vets. I agree with Marissa in that you seem a little light for your height. I'm 5'9 as well, probably more like 5'8 and I train at 86kg and "compete" at 82kg. You don't need to get as big as that again but putting on some kgs wouldn't hurt. And yeah, I don't see the typical PT loving SL5x5, the best and most boring times is being a beginner lifter, the gainz are bountiful but the work is tedious. Sent from my XT1585 using Tapatalk
  7. Hey! It's kinda hard for me to figure what the issue might be without a form check video. Hips might be too high (or low), bar might be too far away from your body, et cetera. But at this stage, accessory work isn't typically needed. It's more important to just get reps under your belt and learn the movement Sent from my SCH-I545 using Tapatalk
  8. Yeah, I showed it to someone and they got pissed cause he thought I was about an inch away from pushing my hips thru Sent from my SCH-I545 using Tapatalk
  9. The Ghost returns! I'm not super active around here as much anymore, but thought I'd still drop a meet report. F TL;DR: Went 7/9 (again) (failed 3rd squat and deadlift attempts (complete fail)), left some pounds on the platform but still set some 4 PRs. Amazing experience for my first meet and reinforced my stance that everyone who ever thinks about doing a meet, competition or race should just do it. PLAN YOUR WORK. WORK YOUR PLAN! TRAINING & MEET PREP: Going into this meet I ran Candito's 6 Week Strength Program, which has been amazing. Prior to t
  10. Goddamn! We live such different lives. I grew up in NYC, Philly and Chicago. Turkey hunts, hiking, local trout ponds, and "wedding guns" seem so foreign. Sent from my SCH-I545 using Tapatalk
