    2 weeks out of the gym, life is sucking pretty bad. shoulder feels about 90% today so depending on how i feel i may go for it tomorrow. although i've lost some size, im surprised with how much i've kept on considering my diet has more or less been a crapshoot. probably gonna be super weak though

    charly WTF did you post that powerlifter dying vid on IA for. can't un-see :( poor bastard :(

    When I did barbell bench press for the first time in a few months and was warming up I dropped 60kg on my chest right after unracking it, felt bad man. You can see his ribs just get crushed in the video, don't know how he got up afterwards (Yes I stalked you on IA chariy)


    Also, when I get back from NJ Ill only be able to lift 3 days a week for a few weeks before i go to uni. Days will also be wednesday, saturday, sunday so not really ideal. Hows this sound for a program


    wednesday
    Squat
    bench assistance

    saturday
    squat
    bench

    sunday
    squat
    squat assistance

    sundays squats will be higher volume with lighter weight, other 2 days will be max effort. Bench assistance is pull ups, tricep work and light shoulder work. Squat assistance work is heavy abs, hamstring work, unilateral work.

    What is refeed? I'm tired, lethargic, and unmotivated all the time! I also have wildly inconsistent food and sleep patterns.

    ^+1 this my metabolism probably crashed 14 years ago thats about how long i've been tired, lethargic and unmotivated. God I miss adderall. They gave me this new shit called strattera, and yeah it helps me concentrate, but without any of the fun stuff, I just wanna get twacked out. Fuck Concentration. Plus I'm on two CNS depressants so that could be some of the lethargy. Seroquel xr 150ml and Ambien 10mg


    I dunno if you guys use a ton of supplements but I found this wholesaler that sells crazy shit in bulk everything from creatine, ketones, stevia, melatonin and a looooong list of shit I can't comprehend for decent prices, without filler. IN essence you could just concoct your own pre work out drink.

    I majored in exercise science and hold (held) an NSCA-CPT and NSCA-CSCS. The CSCS is probably the highest one for training, consider one of the olympic certs as well to round it off.

    I bench inside the rack but I can't put the safety pins at the correct height for me because the gap between the holes is too great. They either sit too high (and get in the way during reps), or sit too low and do nothing if I failed a rep.

    After seeing the comments I decided not to watch the video. [​IMG]

    Put blocks/boards/plates under the bench feet to raise it to the appropriate height. Make sure it's stable.

    Failed a couple times on DL at 275lbs and gave up. Had done 3 x 265lbs last week. Had been using slippers but forgot them at home so had to use sneakers - not good.

    Could get the bar about half a foot off the floor and then didnt have the power to get it up the rest of the way. Probably lack of quad strength.
