1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I did legs (squats, RDLs, calf raises) and push (heavy bench, hyper bench, dip machine, machine flys) today. First time maybe ever I have felt like I was gonna pass out during a workout since I stopped doing full deads ~2 years ago...

    I really don't want to get back on the coffee wagon...

    I will be getting back into weight training shortly hopefully but I'm expecting a wee bit of a drop in weight, once I'm back at 130kg I will post a video

    I did some pull ups today and for some reason my bicep and rear delts/upper lat area have been cramping since immediately after my first set. Don't know how to describe the feeling. It feels like a mixture of being of tight, cramped and sore all at once, but there's no pain. I find it very odd since it happened immediately after my first set or so. Should I be worried? Already decided to scale back and take a break tomorrow. I've gotten super paranoid about golfer's elbow or tendonitis and that sort of stuff.

    Not too shabby today. 2RM PR.

    Last rep moved slow because I got flattened out due to my back cramping up.

    Squat days are just wiping me the fuck out, man. Holy shit though, feels good to blast through and keep plating up at weights as heavy as where I'm (at least they're heavy to me!). Some dude came up to me as I was prepping the power rack asking if I was almost done, I told him I was just starting and he could work in if he wanted. Asked how much I was doing, told him 335, dude just said he'd come back after I was done because squats were his "weak spot". No idea, felt weird.

    Hot lifting girl at my gym was checking me out while I squatted, caught her in the mirror mirin. feelsgoodman :slayer:

    Those shoes are pretty epic btw.

    Thanks for vid. Recently took up sumo and think I've been dropping my hips too low to initiate the pull. Will attempt a higher hip position and not "sit" for starting position.
