Just posting here to say rippetoe has cost me a lot of money from having to resell jeans I can no longer fit into. On the bright side I gained about 50lbs+ on bench and squat, the dark side again, I can barely fit into slim jeans and am afraid to buy them for fear of gaining more thigh width. But should've realized relaxed fits is better anyway on tall/well built people.

Use thicker wraps for your heavy sets? You squat wider than most raw lifters I've seen.

in the past week or so, i have acquired:

pressing stand
pair of squat stands
pair of squat stands with safeties
hex bar
plate-loaded pulldown
powerblocks
assorted crap, more plates, adjustable kettlebells, fat gripz etc

my work wants me to upgrade some of the junk we have in our basement since i told them they'd be stupid to buy it brand new. powerblocks, pressing stand and a set of squat stands are going to my work gym; i'm also going to cop a cheap 300lb olympic set from dick's for work next time i cross over into the land of the free. i was pretty pumped until a manager asked me if i could find a treadclimber for them, since one of her friends used one to lose fifty pounds. ugh... i guess a bike, elliptical, and regular treadmill aren't enough.

the rest is mine, space is going to be a serious concern now for when i am able to use it all. glad i finally found a hex bar and a solid pulldown. nod[1].gif

Sleeping in a 80 degree college dorm apartment no AC 2 twin beds smashed together for me and my wife for the next month. Here's hoping for more than 2 hours of sleep each night.

Awesome! I've yet been to Nanjing. I've always wanted to go there to visit the massacre site and pay my respects.

Nope, same wraps. I just was testing another pair out yesterday.

I will pray for you dude.

My apt in Manhattan was a corner unit with one side facing 3rd ave. We lived there for 3 years and I don't think I got 1 good night sleep. Shit is damn near luxurious down here by comparison. Cant wait to get a house and throw some programmable thermostats in. Take it down to like 67 for bed time and then have it hit us with a 75-80 degree wake up blast. I'm hoping to put a zoned split AC in too. Im an HVAC/building energy specialist so this shit is gonna be a lot of fun for me.

Loving the new gig as well. Time to turn up the Excel geekage to 11. Nested conditionals with VLOOKUPS.... Im in love

Yeah, the museum that they created for the massacre is probably the most well done, moving museums I've ever been to. I'd definitely recommend a visit if you're in Nanjing.

One an unrelated note, the DOMS have decreased significantly this second week back lifting. A couple more weeks and hopefully I'll get a good amount of strength back.

I obtained fans. Hot as hell when we go to bed, only to wake up at 5am freezing. Going to have to figure this out.

Check out this BS though...



Luckily I got a pass to the varsity weight room in the field house which has 6 squat racks w/ platforms, benches, Rogue bars, and bumpers at every rack. Bonuses: the field house pass is $35 vs. $50 for the fitness center, and has better hours (opens at 8 vs. 12). icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif Only issue will be working around varsity teams when they show up next month.

Paying nearly $200 a month for my gym now so I can go later. It's like the equinox in grand central
