    Yeah send your butt back. It also looks like your knees are caving inwards. Push your knees out.

    Word guys, these are all things I know to do but they seem to fly out my head when im actually doing the movement. Maybe I should join the charly school of thought and ditch the earbuds.

    Gonna try box-squats, and convince myself the box is a nasty toilet. boom.

    Got an actual gym bag, no more backpack for me! Even fits my roller so I can start rolling at the gym right after lifting. Suuuuuuuuuper hyped. :slayer:

    Haha when it comes to rollers, and especially the rumble roller I always think the same thought, "Hurts so good"

    Mark you got a long way to go. Stick with it though! Have you thought about squat shoes? If you want to squat in chucks I'd squat like a geared lifter IMO.

    Wide stance, pushing hips back, keeping torso more upright. Think almost like a sumo squat. That's just my opinion from watching all the geared lifters in my gym who only lift in chucks and not oly shoes, they are doing the right htings.


    You just look like your new to squatting, knees bending in and shooting onto your toes at the bottom, slow in places you should be fast :p Not hating, just saying keep with it and you will feel more confident and stronger under the bar.

    See how he breaks @ hips first, and sinks his butt backwards like "trying to take a shit on a gross toilet."

    also his knees are shoved out all the time.



    Edit: This week was deload week. 105kg x 5 rockbottom high-bar squats for a single working set. I feel like superman haha.

    I've been reading Complete Human Performance website. The guy that runs it has a 610/445/705 sq/bench/dl record and has done marathons, ultramarathons and triathlons as well.

    Jamie Lewis interviewed him on his blog too (NSFW), where he picks apart CBL/CNS. He's a IIFYM guy apparently.

    Take your time on the descent. Begin with a hip break and just slowly lower the hips/butt backwards while keeping the weight in your heels and your chest up/back tight. If you feel that you're losing tightness in the lumbar spine or the weight is shifting, stop your descent and try again.

    I read that article and it was completely unreferenced hyperbole while ranting against (sometimes poorly) referenced hyperbole. To describe it as "picks apart" gives it way too much undue credit.

    The issue with CBL that most astute readers of internet diets will immediately notice is that it doesn't care to prescribe macros. That tells me that it is an incomplete blueprint of how to eat and must be combined with another method. IIFYM is macro based and lacks a timing component (I think), therefor matches perfectly with CBL which by and large simply recommends you focus your protein during the day and carbs post workout.

    One of the dude's complaints is that sugar will give you diabetes and then he touts IIFYM, which may ironically utilize pure sugar as its carb source, one of the generalized complaints people have against it. Of course, there is no reason either diet needs to utilize pure sugar if you don't want it. The guy sounds more like a bio dropout than the biochem ph.d he is fronting to be.

    Visiting Florida next week and so excited to lift with old friends. Hopefully I will make some progress on my bench. Last time I was there in January my mom asked me seriously if I was on steroids, can't wait to see her reaction now because I'm 25lbs heavier and leaner than I was in January.

    a female colleague at work gave me a packet of some tea because apparently they're in the habit of collecting far too much for their own consumption. so to be courteous I brewed a cup.

    holy fuck do people actually drink this shit? It's almost exactly like hot water, only with that subtle urine color so slightly more urine-y

    Black coffee is the shit while tea is still awesome. I only drink coffee like once a week since I sleep like 12 hours a night, when I do now it's like I'm on fuckin speed. I also dont drink any soda, only occasional giner ale. So my caffeine hits me like a truck.

    I went from drip brew to aeropress and now I can't go without it. Anything less than a double shot or an Americano won't phase me.

    Love my aeropress <3 thanks vlsi

    No, you just have bad taste! Tea is delicious, especially when cold :slayer: I'm also a caffeine-oholic. Coffee in the morning, espressos in the day, caffeine pills before training...
