Yup. I hit 90 degrees and that's it.

I'm naturally a very good deadlifter, it's be far my best lift because I have very good leverages for it so I don't really know. In terms of the kg increase it has been the greatest, but percentage wise I think my bench has gone up the most. I could pull 180kg conventional pretty easily before I went on for maybe 1 or 2, but I couldn't even bench 100kg on flat bench and now I can rep it out easily. Squat I was probably getting about 150ish and now I'm on 180 and I can get 150ish for maybe 5-7 reps so that's been a big increase too. I've also trained upper body much more then lower body since going on, prop esters hurt like fuck espescially in virgin muscle so it took a few weeks before I could even do a body weight squat. I've squatted maybe 10x since going on and pulled maybe 5.

RHET brahs, need opinions.

Should I quit my entry level office job, which I absolutely hate, save for my coworkers, which makes it bearable. Job looks good on my resume, but the pay is dick, and the job just sucks.... also 2.5 hour round trip commute every day.

Or should I go work 4 days a week at the bar, make the same amount of money (all cash, no fucking checks and taxes), actually have fun with what i'm doing, spend the days at the beach and gym and doing whatever the fuck I want, and working nights? 10 minute bike ride from my place.

Only thing really stopping me is that the bar is only open a few months out of the year, i'd be out of a job by September, and everyone knows how hard it is to find a job nowadays

22, I don't get health insurance or benefits from this job, not even federal holidays off, no overtime. It's a shit job.

You're young enough to enjoy working in a bar and have some fun. I'd say go for it, I did something similar when I got outta school in the late 90s, I regret none of it. My only advice is have fun, but not too much fun, you're going to have to grow up to some degree at some point. Hell, I'm 34 and still have a hard time coming to the realization that I am a bonafide adult...

This is pretty much my line of thinking...

Yeah go have a good time. Summer's meant to be rad.

Just deposit all your tips in the bank when you get them. Even if you take that money right back out it's clutch to have an idea of how much you're making.

Are you a graduate or a student? Is your current job a stepping stone to your future job?

Do what you like. Fuck money, safety, and insurance. Some of the most high strung and miserable people I know have 401ks

You're telling him to fuck all these things as if he's been given this great opportunity at a start up where he could potentially make mad $$$$.

Reality: He's gonna be working at a bar for the summer and then unemployed thereafter.

I just ran the numbers and I'm saving significantly more than I thought I was (43% of pay to various investments).  Kinda thinking I should maybe just get a nicer apt.

 

Mark the job sounds like it sucks, I'd say bartend but spend a few hours a week looking for something for the fall.  Also try to save a fair bit in case you don't find anything right away.
