It just seems like a recipe for injury and time spent out of the gym.

The appeal is you can post it on Facebook and tell all your friends.

Someone wanna aware me on a decent but cheap scale? Sick of my weight oscillating by +/- 8 pounds depending on how much water I drank.

But your weight is supposed to fluctuate with your food and liquid intake, or maybe I'm not understanding you correctly.

 

Anyway, if you're tracking your weight you really should track your average for the whole week.

Set up it up in excel so you put in the weight every morning and then have it averaged for the whole week in a separate column. In another column you take the difference from last weeks average to the current weeks average to show your weekly loss/gain.

 

You should also always weigh yourself first thing in the morning after the toilet and before any food, if you're not already doing it.

 

 

 

On another note, anyone got tips for a good tapered sweatpant and jacket to wear when I bike to the gym? A plus if they stand wind and rain.

Nike or Adidas. On the cheaper side.

This is my point, I need a scale, because right now I'm weighing myself around 6 PM at the gym so it's totally inconsistent. I want my own so I can do it when I wake up.

I still stand by the Adidas Tiro 13, got 4 pairs now, all I wear to the gym/fitness activities. They're soccer pants so they're tapered with a zipper running up the calf, but they're made out of trackpant material, so not sweats per se. I love them though.

This is what I have, and it has served me well the ~year that i've had it. Positive reviews overall, and decently priced. Plus it's decent looking, unlike the majority of ugliness you find in scales.

Haha yes, long day http://www.amazon.com/EatSmart-Precision-Bathroom-Capacity-Technology/dp/B001KXZ808/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1395188872&sr=8-1&keywords=scale

It's also the same brand as my food scale, and for some reason dat brand synergy makes me feel alright. Your mileage may vary.

Hit a PR of a 205 single on bench today.

Not too bad for a 150lb uber-manlet, non?
