You should look into Rockaway Beach Queens. Up and coming area, really trending right now, recently named one of the hottest places to be or some shit. It's where I run the bar.

In the next 2-3 years this place is going to explode into the next Williamsburg or something, and it's beautiful, right on the beach, in the summer I would not want to be anywhere else. You could still find 2BR places here between 1100-1500. Train goes right into the city, would probably be about a 45 minutes commute to NYU.

I would look for a place high up... Rockaways got destroyed in Hurricane Sandy, lot of my friends lost homes

Its about 90 mins away from Midtown too and the A train sucks

Best bargain might be the Upper East Side right now... its shitty while they build the 2nd ave line but once they do you will be good money if you get a place for less than rent control threshold ($2500)

I lived in NYC for 28 yrs, uptown, downtown, BK, Queens.... shits too expensive, we had to get out. A 1 bedroom in a decent neighborhood is gonna be $2K at the minimum

Had the stomach flu for about 2 days. Felt better. Just did some benching. Hit 275x1 on my high bench. Didn't feel like using the low bench, putting stress on back. Felt like I could have hit a double but didn't want to push it. I think I should be able to hit 300 by April.

Also looking to minimize my costs so if I could find a cheap apartment that would be awesome, preferably a roomy 2br with in unit washer/dryer on the first or second floor of a new building for like $1000/mo. foo.gif

Yeah you can't do that in NYC.

Since you'll be looking around downtown you'll probably want to check out less "popular" parts out in brooklyn like sunset park, bay ridge, windsor terrace, flatbush, kensington, etc. Rockaways is mad far out but isn't the worst suggestion either. You won't get a new nice place but you'll find something serviceable.

Whenever I want to set a new 1RM or double or triple press PR, this is my typical warm up with no rest in between and the number of reps and weight depend on the weather (135x10, 155x5, 175x3, 185x3, 225x3, 245x2) then go for the PR or working sets. Did you miss 225x1? Did you waste too much energy on your warm ups? You should try 215 first to be on the safe side. Also, I typically rest between 2 to 5 minutes between sets. Do you rest enough for your body to recuperate between sets?

You're doing too much in your warm up.

Ive hit 225x2, i was just wiped today. 205x5 was a PR though.

That's my warm up during winter/cold weather. Other wise, I feel cold and my joints aren't limber. When the weather gets warmer, I cut my warm up down by a few sets.

You're ramping up too gradually.

Also, get elbow sleeves. Duh!

And maybe a heater for your garage.

Yes, coach! I'm on it!

Ugh this is annoying. My left elbow is starting to feel funny. I think I might have to drop the BB stuff and see if that helps.

I guess this might be the downside of the schedule i made as i do some sort of press movement almost every day i lift, ie 5x a week.

Keep an eye on it but if it seems like simple tendonitis/tendonosis you could try some kind of compression cuff. 

Even just taping it can help. Right under the elbow on the upper forearm.

post #49663 of 57265
I always wear sleeves when i lift. Only started to notice it when i started benching heavy. Guess i need to stick to higher rep ranges.

For me it's squats that cause it and bench that makes me notice it. Be very careful with squats that you aren't gripping the bar tightly at all. Hands loose, back tight.

I experienced episodic forearm tendonitis and strange upper back tweaks for the longest time before I finally threw my hands out to the cuffs for squats.
