Drink lots of water and you won't get the feeling that are you are hungry or empty.

Yeah, quite often drinking a couple of tall glasses of water will be sufficient to snuff out the hunger. At least with ppl who are fairly new to being in a caloric deficit, thirst is often confused with hunger.

Regarding IF:
I don't think it's mandatory to jump on the IF bandwagon, so if you're having success/meeting your goals with your normal diet, then by all means stick to it. A good dietary regimen is one that in the long run gives you the least amount of trouble and discomfort.

I'm also a bit on the fence in regards to bulking on an IF regimen... especially for bigger dudes (a buck-fifty like myself could prolly bulk w/ one meal ) it might prove somewhat problematic, as the caloric requirement goes up.

Totally owned my theoretical Squat 1RM (260) but I didn't want to push it (no spotter, just being cautious). I think each workout I'm going to keep trying a new 1RM until I get it (except for DL probably, which I'll keep pushing until I can't take the weight off the ground). I feel like definitely got a lot of potential strength gains in me. I'm almost tempted to re-run SS with a few BB assistance exercises until I stall and then go back to wendler's.

Deep deep squat?

Also, how do you spot a squat. My gym has these lever arm thingies on the side. I put those near my knees and if I fail I just sit on my ankles, keel over, and crawl out from underneath the bar.

Spotting a squat.

#1- have a spotter you know and trust
#2- get comfortable with your manhood
#3- they pretty much squat right up behind you so that they can support you by your elbows, your waist, the bar... depending on need.

I use a squat rack with rails but if I really failed, I fear I'd end up hitting my head on the bar as t hit the rails.

The guy spotting in back is what I mean... but they were stupid for not spotting both ends of the bar in this case Particularly as he was box squatting and had nowhere to go to get out of the hole.

Good for you. My long legs+unnaturally tight hams+back/knee issues have really been limiting me to parallel lately. I started doing a reset this week, slowing the reps way down and "sitting" at the bottom as a stretch, trying to go deeper. Right now I'm down to squatting 200 that I can get down to about 20 degrees below parallel then I might as well be box squatting as tight as my hams are.

Just dump the bar... doesn't look too difficult now, does it?



That is one impressive performance right there.

I've seen a guy scrape the skin up his neck and into his hairline doing that. But better that than a broken neck.

The location of the racks in my gym, unfortunately, allow no room for bailing out like that.

Is he is probably an olympic lifter? Those guys do a lot of bailing on lifts, so get more used to it than your typical powerlifter type. e: Oh, that's Koklyaev. He owns.

You may want to try Bill Starr's muscle tear rehab protocol. http://startingstrength.com/resource...ead.php?t=7351

Hanging out at my son's gymnastics class. Looking around, every parent is seriously obese. WTF do these people eat every day to get this way? I am glad they are at least getting their kids some exercise but gawd almighty, the only way any of them would make it across a mat would be if you put a donut on a string and dragged it in front of their nose. It is a truly sad and depressing spectacle of gluttony and lack of willpower.

Took a break from the OLifts to play with a prowler and flip a tire... that kicked my ass...
