  1. I've really fallen off the wagon this fall and winter as far as my eating habits and workouts go. However I've been on track for two weeks now (staying within my macros and not skipping workouts). But I've developed a problem in those two weeks...you know that thing that everyone blames on the dog? Yes, I get gas quite a bit now. And I'm fairly sure it can kill small animals. I'm talking nasty and rank. I feel terrible for my family! Has anyone experienced a dramatic shift like this when climbing back onto the wagon?
  2. And a puppy burrito. Best pre-workout supplement on the market, I hear.
  3. I was talking with some coworkers about post workout stretches, and one of them commented that stretching was very important because it "squeezes the fat out of your muscles so that you can then burn that fat off." Sounds like broscience to me.
  4. I'm a fan of a bagel smothered in peanut butter and drizzled with honey. Delicious!
  5. I use DOH until I hit 225, then switch to right over, left under. I'm working on using the hook grip for my heavy sets, though.
  6. Could be flexibility/mobility issues. Google up DeFranco's Agile 8. Try this out daily (even on rest days, it is not taxing) for a week or so and you should feel a big difference in your ROM. Disclaimer: Dammit Jim, I'm a lifter, not a doctor!
  7. Love reading things like this. Keep at it!
  8. Ok, so still haven't mastered (read: figured out at all) how to get these videos directly on the page...so I'm not sure if this will work. The first vid is of my last warm up set, which may become my new working weight after seeing the form on these lifts. So the first one has some sketchy bar path to it, but I'm not sure what else needs to be fixed. The second video has 10lbs more and garbage bar path. What else do you guys and gals see wrong here? Don't hold back, I can take it! Warm up: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mCg7swlV9yg Working weight: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G3jWaP9P
  9. I don't think it is malicious, but let's not fix what isn't broken. Granted, I like to throw in some farmer's walk action to my sessions, but these people are adding two movements to each workout. Seems excessive, doncha think?
  10. Ugh, I get bombarded by Daily Burn ads everywhere! This gives me another reason to ignore them.
  11. I'd like to start a discussion about using cardio as a post-workout recovery aid. Over the last week, I've been jumping rope for a few minutes after my lifting sessions to see what happens. I've found that I can stretch more easily and more fully when I do this. I don't feel so "crunchy" is a good way to describe it. Now, this is purely anecdotal, but I will continue to do what my body responds well to. What is everyone else's experience with this? I don't want to confine the discussion to just jumping rope. Sprints/sled drags/HIIT/walking, or whatever flavor of cardio you feel like commenting
  12. I honestly hope it all goes well for you... but this is exactly the way I felt when I jumped up on my weight, and it turned out bad. Hopefully history does not repeat itself! Keep up the hard work.
  13. Here's hoping for quick healing and keeping a good attitude!
  14. Wells, I can tell you from experience that adding weight is a mistake. I did exactly what you are describing. I threw 10 extra pounds on my squat for just a couple sessions, then went back to 5 lbs increments. (at least, this is was I am understanding as what you want to do) Things seemed to be going well until I hit about 200 on my squat. I had a sudden realization: I couldn't squat properly. That extra week or two that I skipped by adding weight? Pretty important for practicing technique. I had to drop my squat down to 120 lbs just to get to a spot where my form didn't look like an abominati
