    yeah, but women's health got to her :(. i lift my way, she works out her way. she does lots of classes, and circuit-y girl workouts, etc. last time we lifted, she was squatting 115 for reps.


    if we end up together and she ever asks the moment "i knew," i'm going to tell her it was this lol

    It's sort of a tingling/twirling/sleeping sensation.

    If you are getting enough protein and minimizing your muscle loss it's not uncommon, especially if you are only a few weeks in, I was also the same, being in a great mindset also helps rather than "I'm so weak right now 'cause I'm dieting"

    I presume you are doing SS, do your loads vary over the week? It's still brutal nonetheless.

    I don't know if it is only a recent thing, but I see a lot more Crossfit WODs that are 5x3, 5x5 or 5x1 of a compound movement, testing for a max, could be an attribute to gaining some strength gains while still on a Crossfit routine.

    Yup.



    We normally do 10-15min warm up, 20-30 oly. lifts or flexibility and the rest is a WOD.

    If any of you are having issues with your deadlift lockout, one arm db swings are a great assistance exercise to improve it. You don't have to swing the db far out in front of you. Just focus on snapping the hips forward and lock your knees out at the same time, dynamically.

    Pull throughs are great. The best thing is you don't even need a a lot of weight and still get a nice burn in them hammies.

    That's excellent - do you ever feel tempted to just try and stay in that range?
