    More PT for the groin/hip today. PT has me doing one legged, unweighted "box squats," slowly lowering yourself down onto a low chair and then pushing back up to standing lock-out while keeping the non-worked foot off the ground entirely. Seems to really hit the glutes. Will be very interesting to see if any of this unweighted, balance focused work actually helps my squat and DL when I start up again.

    You should try doing them with weights when you can. Its a bitch and a half.

    This is the "stick" that I was talking about. Anyone ever used one of these? Seems like an interesting concept.

    Went to Academy to buy some foam roller, but they were sold out. Had the GF rub my hams and glutes instead, which lead to bangin. Don't think I need a roller anymore.

    Far as supps go, once I get done with my detox chlorella regimen, I plan on starting up creatine mono and lots and lots of desiccated liver tablets

    Found it. Whys all the percentages so low? I know the volume is huge, but how do you progress on bench not going past 75%?



    Sticking point on my squat has changed because of paused squats. No longer have a hard time out of the hole, it's half way up now. Would use accommodating resistance, but the bands the gym doesn't have particularly heavy bands and I have no way of attaching chains. Might do bottom up zerchers from pins or something, they basically just feel like deads.


    edit: all the final fantasy games I ordered last week came in the mail. Brb taking a month of lifting.

    did some KB swings yesterday. i need a routine for this.
    i hit 10 rep single arms for 3 sets. should i keep the sets fluid? 10l 10r 10l 10r...etc. or do 10l 10r, break, repeat?

    Am i actually gonna get any size gains from deadlifts, doing 3x5 currently followed by high rep leg press, curls, calfs. Sometimes wonder why im doing low rep deads when everything else is minimum 6-8 reps. Probably because it feels good and i like adding weight all the time. Highest deadlift i've seen in my gym is 140 for reps with terrible form.

    I got a shit ton of gains with deads and squats, particularly in the legs (still am). So yes, you will get gains, assuming everything else is in check.

    I really hope this gives rise to a 10 page discussion of the ideal number of reps per set.
