That movie was funny but pretty bad. I watched it only because of the chevelle in the trailer.

My wrist made a sound I can only describe as like crushing a biscuit, while doing pull ups.

The way he explained it to me was my knees were out past my feet in the bottom position and to pull them in just enough so they're inline to transfer more force to the floor on the way up.

Been avoiding posting because I literally see something or learn something amazing every time I'm there.

But in general? Kind of sucks I had to take weight off the bar yet again as my form's been tweaked on all 3 lifts, but hopefully this sets me up for success later. Also humbling because EVERYONE there is stronger than I am. Even the girls. But everyone's been super nice to me. It really is more like a club where everyone knows each other vs. a commercial gym where everyone minds their own business.

Here's a random pic of us watching the niners/atlanta game:

Yup jelly. Mine has a club-like environment as well but I'm the only one with a strength goal.

O like a ooontz ooontz club.

Speaking of good training environments, I'm looking forward to getting back in uni in a month since I'll be joining a new gym then. It's actually called "(insert town name) weightlifting club" and I think most of the people training there are powerlifters. Gonna be awesome

Best thing about mine is that it has a lot of Arnold posters in his prime. Shit otherwise.

I asked a guy to record my last warmup rep @95kg. Would appreciate a form check:

Just saw my old RMT for an hour of pure agony. Turns out shitloads of upper back work, everyday squats and comp bench setup tightens you up like a torque wrench. Also could not believe how unbelievably painful my forearm/elbow extensors were. Finding a good RMT who knows how to dish out deep tissue pain was the best thing ive done for myself.

Completely unrelated: was searching for some inspiration to update my vision board and ended up googling "Klokov physique" and "Stoitsov" for a good half hour. Feels homo man. Also look what I found when googling: http://www.board.crossfit.com/showthread.php?t=84217&page=2

Finally hit 225 bench. Tried at the end of my working sets, easy rep, makes me feel good about the future.
