Everyone saw the photos. Pretty sure I posted how much I want to lose, too. I'm sitting at 191 right now and want to get down to 160. Go look at my spare tire bro.

How tall are you if you're going for 160? And what BF% would that be?

Risk for osteoarthritis is increased with or without surgery, so that's kinda a bummer.
That's a while ago  biggrin.gif  And yeah, I'm just going to tape it even though it apparently wasn't that good for the tendon's blood circulation.. or something.

The problem is if you play sports or something you risk damaging your meniscus/other internal knee structures. I opted for the surgery because I want to stay active.

Yeah, but that's only if you do pivotal sports where you're more prone to doing movements that could damage your meniscus, and I lift weights/run/yearly ski trip so if I should be able to do fine without surgery. Still can't fully stretch my leg so I may still need surgery, though, but I feel like my knee has improved fairly fast.

I remember Dejuan Blair shocked everyone on his medicals for the NBA when they realized he actually has no ACL in either knee. Not a torn ACL, literally no ACL because it went so long without being fixed. Still plays though.

Fits in well with the current conversation. One of my favorites thus far.

I had it when I was 10 a couple years forward.

The thing is it wasn't funny because pretty much everything he said was true. He doesn't need to put on a Jersey Shore accent when his points aren't douchey or bro science. Just straight up truth.

someone told me if I have long legs I should deadlift sumo instead of normal, I'll try to take a video but basically my hips should be lower and my chest more up when I'm at the bottom of my lift. Is that something I'll just need to get down to a lower weight and fix or should I only do sumo now or something? sry for vague non video question

I think biking is gonna be the key. Rode 10 miles today. I feel lighter already. I just hope I can squat tomorrow

I had the same issue. My arms are short so sumo gives me more leverage. I used to keep my hips really low to get used to the movement. But after awhile, you'll get the hang of it and keep a higher hips for more leverage. My biggest cues is keep the bar to my hips as close as possible while keeping the hips higher than perpendicular to the floor while maintaining a neutral back. Oh yeah, while pulling, your chest and ass should "come up" at the same rate. I started doing sumo after my back injury with one plate. Now I'm up to 350x6 in merely 3 months. It goes up pretty quickly if you get your form down. Now, I can feel that sweet spot where I use more leverage rather than just muscle the weight up. I still got a long way to go though.
