    Compound lifts still going up. Adding 5 lbs every week and works so far.

    Here's another form check for DL.
    210 X 8. Second set RPT. 30 lbs more than the last video which was 2 weeks ago or so.
    Deload for form improvement has def helped. Still have another 30 lbs up to my previos 1RM but it feels so much better DLing now.


    Focused on keeping lower back straight and properly locking out. Could have put the bar down better. Seems like I'm still going out and over the knees on the way down.
    (my face looks fat in the end, lol)

    Took some mobic today, anti-inflammatory that was given to me for my groin injury. Significantly relieved the neck pain.

    Can the trigger point work be done by oneself or do you need a third party ie a licensed massage person?

    I live about 5 hours away from Memphis. Going to be out of town those dates. Why are you going to be there?

    Since everyone else is posting progress pics...
    Me abotu 4 months ago around 205 [​IMG]

    I've been on a half-assed cut for awhile without being too strict other that keeping calories lower than usual about 5 days out of the week. I weighed around 188 at the gym this morning after breakfast. Strength is still there for the most part, although it's hard to judge because I've switched from Low bar back to high bar on squats and having been gradually moving up weight. Did 295 for 3x5 today pretty easily.

    Today I saw a 35ish year old guy doing shit-tier form curls in the squat rack with 65 pounds....with massive amounts of chalk. And of course, he didn't clean up after he was done. I don't think I've ever experienced this much disappoint in a single instant before.

    The path down should be more like an RDL, IMO. Stick butt back and drop it, i guess..

    Yep lol. Thank god I only have 10 more pounds to gain...thinking of even calling it off at 215 and maintaining for a bit. At least the strength gains have been good.

    Can barely rep out 10 consecutive pullups anymore though lmao

    No prob. The book is pretty awesome. I've probably read it through four times, there's a ton of information in there and it's all directly applicable.

    No prob. The book is pretty awesome, I've read through it like 4 times and keep re-visiting it. It's got at on of information and it's all really applicable. I highly suggest it for people who don't have shoulder / neck problems too (for those that are reading). Doing TP stuff on yourself feels damn good and as that Mobility WOD dude would put it, everyone should be able to do routine maintenance on themselves.
