    Awesome! All those buildings and businesses look respectable :eek:
    I am in need of a vacation, too



    My train of thought is that if you are already at a higher weight, why not continue building up your strength and progress there instead of "resetting". 180 lb seems like a good weight to get strong fast. If your form is an issue just drop the weight down and work on that etc. I just do not see the point in cutting if your primary goal is to eventually get bigger and stronger. Can't you correct everything at X body weight instead of cutting so much? Unless you are going for a slimmer, more cut aesthetic perhaps I can see your reason.


    Can someone recommend me a ab routine, please?? SPBR has it 1x a week at 3x10. I want to do more and vary up the exercise. Can someone recommend me some beginner, intermediate, and expert level type of workouts for my core?

    tfw after you do deads with shorts and then step in the shower for the first time after, and the water lights the cuts on your shin right the fuck up

    Do people scrape their shins on the lift or the drop? I've never really banged up my shins doing deadlifts before.

    Usually the lift, I've never cut myself, but always see that my shins are bruised the next day and usually they last 3-4 days.

    I only scrape the chins on sumo DLs. Always have to clean the bar after I'm done.

    Scraping the chins is an indicator that your shins are not vertical enough. I believe you shouldn't scrape them if you DL properly.

    That doesn't make sense, since the shins are just as vertical, if not more so, than on a traditional dl.

    Not for me.
    I'm tall with long legs so getting into the sumo position with the legs spread apart that far is really tough.
    I tend to fall back if my chins are vertical.

    On the conventional deadlift I have better front to back stability since my feet are pointed straight ahead, instead of at a degree outwards like on the sumo.

    Cool stuff Graphic, handstand 4 yoga chicks : )
    Any progress w numbers chick?

    Im annoyed we don't have a good place to practice muscle ups, not that I can do them. I want to be able to do them though, more than improving my DL or squat. (I never scrape shins btw w DL)
    Also failed bench PR attempt( 120kg) yesterday. Sucks that 5kg can make such a difference. Soon.......
    Anyone here have tips for the muscle up? Just do a ton of explosive pull ups?

    I tried to do one recently. I think if I could kip I would be able to do them fairly easy. I was doing pull ups fast enough that I could let go at the top and get my chest over the bar and let go of the bar, but I couldn't transition into the dip.


    Crat, I'm merlin your progress, didn't you recentlyish post about getting a 400kg total or something, now your deadlifting like 210kg.

    Tnx Fuji.
    Yah 400kg big three was my target some time last year, now I'm at 460. (weak squat, but working on that) DL is 205 1rm btw, not 210 (yet) :(
    The transition w. the muscle up is where i'm struggling I think though thats probably not my only problem. Might have to go to a playing ground to practice that with with a little jump or so.


    Also. I made some modifications to my straps and added some motivation not to use them (too much). : )

    I scrap the inside of my shin right below my knee and scrape/bruise the inside of my thighs right above my knees when sumo deadlift.

    250, potential hypothyroid issues too... need to see an endo before they'll treat me, apparently I just went to a clinic. Waiting to get full results sent, they just talked to me on phone so far.
