    Fuck that sounds like one helluva stomach ache Rambo.

    Any critique on my form here at the bottom of a squat?

    So PT figured out what was wrong with the way I do squats: too much hyperextension through the hip in an attempt to get posterior chain activation. Gonna work on focusing on the quads when I machine squat (which I go the ok to do. Feels basic man).

    Also, the PT told me to do some TRX stuff. That shit's harder than i thought.

    Weighed in at 189.6 this morning....first time sub-190 since last August. Strength losses have been acceptable to this point, too. Went from benching 225x11 at 211 to 225x9 at 190. Can't say I'm too upset with that. Also went from doing 6 consecutive pull-ups to 14 :)

    Anybody here use calipers to measure bodyfat? Should I get the regular manual ones or worth getting an electronic with display? Are they accurate at all?

    Best way is to post pics of yourself and have people tell you. Alternatively you can just look at pics and gauge where you are.

    they're only accurate if you use it to track your progress rather than estimating your body fat percentage. i think they have an error of something like +-5%

    faaaakk, my pull ups are coming very slowly. I go from very bottom to top for each rep. Shit is hard brahs. As GN was saying, TRX isn't a joke. Was doing some TRX pushups and could barely do what I would normally do on a single occasion. I have been making some strong gains with chest. Been doing on the reg, 100lb dumbbell flat bench, 85-90lb dumbbell incline press, straight arm chest flies with 30 lbs dumbells (both incline and flat). I do about 4-5 sets of each with about 6-12 reps (depending on the weight and set). Really, I don't follow a routine, I just lift and doing main body groups. However, I have been doing some different things like free weight pistol squats (hard as fak and death like) and body weight shit.

    On a side not, fat chicks, don't wear yoga pants and got get a coffee. Don't want to see that shit early in the morning.
