    Naw luckily for you I have surgery rotation next so will be AWOL from rhet for a bit. I'll spare you all the bitching about cutting and progress pics every day for a couple months. :)

    Better than hearing people whining about feeling pudgy and asking if these pants make me look fat. :slayer:

    You'll start hearing about my competition prep the first week of April :D

    Starting Monday doing 30 grueling days of the posture correction prog that I've put off for like a year. Hoping to correct my pelvic tilt primarily and maybe my internal shoulder rotation as well. 7 days a week of hell, no rest days. Fuck yeah :slayer:

    I am generally pretty absent minded after a heavy squat set but i guess i was especially out of it today—I unloaded one side of the bar fully, dumping it and the rest of the weights over the other side. Thankfully it wasn't crowded but it was a definite :facepalm: moment.

    It's a modified version of Neanderthal No More. Basically it's 4 days lifting and 3 days "off" where on off days you're doing body weight exercises so it's really just 7 days a week non stop hell. I did it for like a week straight before giving up last time and could actually feel a difference so I'm hoping to get more out of it this time by getting through it in a month. If it works I might go through it again in 6-12 months depending on progress. Lot of core work and high rep low weight exercises that hit muscles you don't normally hit with lifts you've never done before.


    Lifting Days:

    Snatch Grip Dead Lift 4x10
    DB Step-Up 3x10 per leg
    Dead Bugs 2x15
    Supine Bridge 3x15
    Side Hip Thrust 3x15 per side

    Wide Grip Cable Row 4x10
    High-Low Cable Wood Chop 3x10 per side
    Face Pull 3x15
    Dip Shrugs 3x10
    Low Cable External Rotation 3x10 per side

    Heels Elevated Front Squat 3x10
    Goblet Squat 3x10
    Pull Through 3x10
    Ab Machine 3x15

    Weighted Dips 4x8
    Weighted Pull Up 4x8
    Low Cable 1 Arm Row 3x10 per side
    DB External Rotation/Prone Lower Trap Raise Superset, 3x10 each
    Saxon Side Bends with 5-10 lb plate 4x6 per side

    Off Days:

    Prone Cobra 3x60sec
    Supine Bridge 3x25
    Prone Bridge 2x60sec
    Side Bridge 2x60 sec each side
    Scapula Push Up 1x25
    Regular Push Up max reps

    RHET: I'm going to put all of my tank tops in a storage bin and just wear all of the t-shirts i like but never get to wear to the gym. Hopefully someone laughs at my DYEL shirt :3

    New straps came in the mail, things are ridiculously long. Will be fun trying out strap squats. Loved squatting with a cambered bar when I used to go to my old gym, but obviously poverty uni gym just has shit bars so this will be the next best thing.

    I've never seen a cambered bar at any gym I've gone to.

    Doubt most commercial gyms have anything other then EZ bars and straight oly bars. They're good if you have shoulder, elbow or wrist pain from squatting. I think DB_GMM posted about having golfers elbow from squats before, cambered bar would take the strain off it.

    Heard something funny at work today, some customers were talking about keeping fit and the girl asks the guy why he doesnt lift weights, to which the guy replies "no because i dont want to get massive" why does everyone think getting massive happens by accident.
