coach wants to put me on cheat days.
has anybody done this with good results?
Why do people like using belts or any kind of gear for that matter when squatting? I've never felt the urge, but I've never used one so IDK.
I guess I was always around water growing up. Learned to swim with lessons when I was 3ish. But was in water a lot when I was a baby. I can swim decently. My gf was a swimmer in high school and I'm probably going to start going with her. I'm faster than her with just a normal head out of water freestyle stroke, but can't swim for shit with my head down doing the side breathes. Freaks me out because I feel like I'm gonna suck in a bunch of water.
Bought a Magic Bullet blender thing. Gonna make so many protein smoothies and veggie/nutrient filled goodness. Pretty excited.
don't do it if you have sensitive skin (0)

I use a belt so I can move more weight and squat more safely, I use knee sleeves so theres last chance of hurting my knees, I use oly shoes because they put my in a better position to squat in.
Speaking of gear, when to start using wrist wraps? I understand it is more for safety than helping move more weight...
I use to wear a belt when I neared 300lb front squats. I always liked belts on front squats and overhead press because my midsection is more secure when Incan push out against it with my gut.
I ordered a knee sleeve b/c I tweaked my left one and now it gets easily agitated when I put any kind of pressure on it. And I'm too much of a goddamned hard-head to just stay out of the gym for a week or two till it's better.
Wrist wraps - I use them for going super-heavy on shrugs or dumbbell military press.
Guy who I taught how to lift is having his first meet this morning. Just squatted 450, so proud
I need to stop sleeping on my side, it's killing me. Had it solved and was sleeping on my back no prob, but when I can't sleep I automatically shift to my stomach.
so guise i was picked as one of the junior coaches for my club if we manage to get attendance
WTF my girlfriends X is competing in this competition. He didnt even lift 2 years ago and I pretty much pulled a robbery on him, he tried to alpha me but I was 40lbs heavier than him and shot him down every time. Gave the poor kid a complex apparently.. He missed his first lift at 150lbs squat, way high..
better go show him that shot of your microwave, he'll shit his pants
