Woke up early to get in a morning workout. Don't know how you bros do it. I'm gonna do it... but I don't want to. Probably just a matter of forming the habit and getting used to waking before the sun comes up (rather than usually going to bed right before it comes up...).

8 45 AM and I already got my workout and about a 600 calories in, feel great.

600 cal? I assume you're still in the middle of eating? smile.gif

Just learned I have much better flexibility with a narrower squat stance. Hanging from the bar and messing with feet position, can go much deeper with no pain with feet closer in. Only problem is when I try that with a loaded bar, I lose my balance if I try to go that low. Is this an ankle flexibility thing?

I just woke up icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif So fucking sore. Really happy about my deadlift last night though, pulled a 1 rep PR for five and they looked amazing. Really sat into them and yanked them backwards, T spine gave a bit on last pull but whatever. Tried hook grip but first rep it felt like my thumb was being ripped off so I double over handed them all. I'll probably double over hand what I pull in competition. Bench is also a continual battle to add 5 lbs per workout but still havn't missed a lift.

do you guys know anything about rumblerollers?

considering purchasing one for post workouts.
post #33128 of 48650
Get a dense regular foam roller first, the black one. Rumble rollers are cool but they are more like an accessory tool.

And roll before workout and on off days. Instead of rolling post workout.

^i see. thanks for the info!

also, for bench. do you guys let me bar touch your chest? I switch to going down to an inch or two above chest level after college, but I feel like I'm cheating shog[1].gif

My favourite part of being back in america so far is the canoli, they are delicious and helping me to recover from the 200 or so pull ups im doing a day. Hoping to work up to a set of 10 with 55lb whilst staying here.

.... yes. Chest or bust. Unless you're using limited ROM for a training tool (which I assume you aren't)

5x5x170 squat this morning. Going to de-load next session and work on getting another couple inches of depth with my new found mobility! Should have messed around with foot position a while ago. Always assumed a wider stance would make it easier to go lower, but I was really just straining my hips, causing pain to myself, and failing to hit proper depth. Closer it is. Feels good to continue making incremental improvements to squat form.

2x5x90,4x90,8x70,7x70 ohp. Really need some 10lb plates...

Morning workout surprisingly a nice thing. I didn't do my usually pull-ups/ab work to finish out since I was running short on time though, that's a problem I've never had working out at 1am. Followed it up with three bowls of cereal, steak and egg burrito, and I ate the chicken out of a chicken burrito. Feeling fat as fuck.

I don't know. Can video it later, unloaded and loaded, when I get a chance.

Looks like almost everyone had a good gym sess. I've been working out with my nephew and he's really getting into it which makes me happy. Texts me to make sure we're lifting that day.

I said it earlier, but I gotta reiterate, that last set where you rep to failure makes things so much more intense/rewarding. I think someone was talking about DL being quad or hammy dominant... I guess I can confidently say my shit is DL/hammy dominant after my burnout set. 320 x 11 and my shit was shaking/burning
