1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    im a full on green smoothie d-bag now. 5 days in, i'm having 2 a day and i have more energy/stomach feels good/digestion feels good/etc. blending up 4oz of kale or spinach with 1 large carrot and an apple or berries, looks like sludge and doesn't taste great but its palatable. easy way to get my veggies in. couple that with a bunch of broccoli and a plate of romaine/spring mix at work for lunch and im all greened out

    GHR or RDL? or both? My hams get sore from GHR more, but my current program uses RDL. I have to go quite low on RDL to feel it in my hams.

    Also leg plyo after/before squats sets?

    +1. I see a lot of guys at my gym with twigs for legs. Big upper bodies, but the lower looks pathetic. Mine are awesome, btw.

    lmao. I think at that point I actually weighed like 165.

    It shouldn't have taken 5 years to get where I am now. Could have easily been done in 2 if I had taken it seriously.

    I was completely DYEL mode then, then went to fat fuck mode a couple years later before finally taking my physique into my own hands(not a masturbation reference).

    Up to 365 on DL, feels good. I'm not sure if it's because I'm using real (non-hex) plates for the first time in ages, or if I've just finally got the technique right but I'm finally injury/pain free in both squat and DL for the first time in over a year and a half. It's time to shine, baby!

    This is where I'm at after three or so months of training. It's actually been over a four month period but I had to take 1.5 weeks off about a month ago (financial problems), so I lost weight that week and had to deload. Terrible.

    BW: 56.2 -> 64
    Squat: 20 -> 77.5x5x3
    Press: 20 -> 41.5x5x3
    Deadlift: 40 -> 85x5
    Bench: 20 -> 52x5x3
    Power Clean: 0 -> 32.5x3x5

    I fear squatting. Ever since I got it over BW I get butterflies in my stomach before doing the work sets. Ridiculous.



    Any comments on my form? I know the video is terrible. Change quality to 480p and full screen. My knees seemed to move inward when I struggled with the last few reps. I don't ATG anymore, though my descent still seems a bit too quick.

    My weight gain has slowed to 1 pound per week for the past fortnight. After today I need to eat more.

    Still lots more work to be done obviously.

    Looks good to me. Like you said, just push you knees out more on your ascent.




    That IS ridiculous. Worst that's going to happen is you dump the bar. The weight is your friend. Don't be scared.
