Could be worse, completely pale like me. You think there's a chance to win natty?

My before cut pics are even worse. Hoping to finish by end of Feb before my trip to NOLA icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

the only negative thing would be that I'm the weakest there. 
The guy that I spotted for his bench the other day had his Max Effort day today. Geared up in suit, used ammonia caps and benched 660. An older man was psyching him up and filmed the set and discussed with him afterwards. I guess thats his coach.

Saw some girls who were really strong. One of them did ATG speed squats with 225 pounds + chains and then did some snatch grip SLDLs with 250 for reps. Pretty crazy.
Also, girls who are slim but can squat heavy have very nice bodies nod%5B1%5D.gif

Spoke to one of the guys at the gym today.

Turns out tht the guy who was benching heavy held the IPF world record in 2012. Also, the girl is the 3rd strongest powerlifter in Sweden in her weight class.

Pretty cool.
Also, everyone wears compression gear and lifting shoes and are stronger than me.

Really want to start lifting a bit more seriously and figured being a bit more active on this thread would help me stay on track. So... hi!

 

Started lifting in April, along with some running and swimming, but wasn't too consistent. Put on about 15 lbs though, so I must be doing something right. Currently following Greyskull LP per a friend's suggestion, but I think I'm still falling under "untrained". Big 3 are 125/170/215lbs, all at 5 reps.

Here's to what's hopefully a great year!

physical therapy has me doing ultrasound/electroshock/etc. and then rotator cuff strengthening. It actually feels pretty good to be like, doing something instead of sitting around pissed off at my shoulder.

Archer is pretty boss though (new episode tonight!), but yea, fucking dumb question.

People who don't lift, talking about bmi's crack me up.
post #38579 of 57266
Go on....

I just love the 200lb 5'8 guy with a "big frame" (who obviously also does not lift)

Was feeling a bit fat today at the gym...

... but repped 3 sets of squats at 315 and felt like a boss. Do need to lean out a bit though - have lost dem cheekbones.
