    When Olympic lifted my coach had a bar cleaning ritual after every workout we had to go through.

    I have quad DOMS, lat DOMS, a horrific hang over and I'm about to start a 10 hour shift, do not want.

    Pausing my squats is giving me horrific DOMS. Doing 5 doubles twice a week is giving me worse DOMS then 5x5 squats twice a week and 5x3 front squats twice a week.

    fatsecret is my mobile app of choice

    tweaked my knee doing sumos today, sucks. did some some band reverse leg extensions / terminal knee extensions and it felt better, but man am i ever worried about blowing a knee out. shit would suck so bad.

    does anyone have experience with minor knee issues? obviously gonna run it by the coach, but i think laying off max effort deads for a week or so would be prudent. i am actually getting pretty pissed off at my sumo form, i never had an issue with it a few months ago but now its driving me nuts. putting arms perpendicular to the ground leaves my ass so low i can't drive the bar off the ground; if i bring my hips higher i can stiff-leg/low back it off the ground and lock it out easily but a) thats what tweaked my knee today and b) i feel like its the path of least resistance which is not the best leveraged position right now

    Agreed Fitday mobile app is lacking. Doesn't really bother me, though, since when I'm good about logging my food, I do it a day or two ahead of time since I find it easier to adhere to calorie/macro targets that way instead of compiling as I eat throughout the day.

    Squatted 615 yesterday with a giant camber bar. Came up quick and had lots more in the tank which is good to know. Going back to 5's for the next few weeks looking to do 3x5 with 525, 535, 545, 555, then moving to 3x3 with 565, 575, 585, 595. Bars may change between camber, buffalo bar, and straight bar. Weight is down to 185 (need to get this up some for worlds). Not a bad weekend of training, hope others had similar success.

    Use swole.me if you're that stuck. Once you plug in the calories, macros and "acceptable" foods, it's really hard not to come close to what you're suppose to intake that day.

    I used a cambered bar to teach me how to stay more upright and give my shoulders a break. I don't know why people use buffalo bars though.

    I get why a cambered bar is makes back-squatting easier on your shoulders, but in what way do you think it teaches you to stay upright?
