    For sure. Not to say programming doesn't matter at all, as it is essential, but comparatively speaking people spend a lot more time obsessing over the minute details of their methods while ignoring the mental side of things.

    I think elite athletes or really anyone who finds success in their sport either had a great attitude starting out or spent a lot of time honing their mental game. I really think the information age is a bit of a detriment as a lot of people, myself included, wrongfully spent most of their efforts researching the "best way" instead of busting their ass on an "acceptable" way. There are way too many fucking articles/websites/methods/personalities out there that are hyperinsistent on optimizing one particular minute aspect of training instead of addressing the mindset necessary for success.

    I remember one particular slap fight in rhet where a 7% difference in wrist circumference was being held as valid as a factor as hard work/consistency was in achieving an elite total. Jfc.

    Form check; the power was out at my gym for some reason, so it's a bit dark.

    looks pretty damn good to me

    My workout today sucked dick, feel like I'm getting sick. Made my #s but had some weird ass knee pain I've never had before through my sets. Call it a day and sat in a cold bath.

    Yea, looked good. I couldn't tell anything that was off from that angle.

    Next time, record from a 45 degree angle from the front.

    Haven't lifted properly in a few weeks now because of exams. Was completely pain free before, been sitting in a chair at a computer all day at a desk and now im slight lower back, shoulder and trap pain, dat der office job is going to fuck me up. Uni is nice enough to have bought a few hundred $1700 chairs from some ergonomics store in london though, so they're pretty comfy at least.

    I know what you mean Fuji.

    Got an office job this summer at a company where I used to work a their warehouse. I know the office work is a lot better for my CV, but sitting down in a chair all day with boring coworkers instead of walking around all day carrying stuff with a bunch of crazy old men is not something I'm looking forward to.

    Then again, the warehouse work is great only for a couple of weeks. After that it gets very boring, no matter how good it's for you in comparison to any qualified desk job.

    My bench sucks, so take it with a grain of salt but there might be better ways to train lockout. That's where my sticking point was, I used chains bands and slingshot. This will keep you doing full rom.

    I try to move around as much as possible during the day, but it doesn't always work out especially when I have all day meetings or attend conferences. I even go to my support's offices rather than have them meet with me in mine, all because I want to be as mobile as possible during the day.

    sadly my attempts to get a futon installed in my office have failed

    also a fellow lifter tore her cornea the other day, her eye looked awful as hell. Does that shit ever even fully heal, I know lasik flaps never really do but how about trauma?

    Water is coming off quick.

    Might not even have to do salt baths and saunas.

    218.4 -> 209.4 in about 7 days.

    About 6 days til weigh in.

    Maybe I'll compete in the 181's my next competition :)
