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.

    Thanks for the tip. Charly also suggested that I should open my hips more which I will try as well. I'll do some squats tomorrow and see how it goes. I always try to stay as upright as possible which may be an issue.

    Another video back from early August with a different angle. May help to show how's my set up. Was also my first time doing 315 x 5 so it was a bit messy but fun stuff. I've changed my technique a little bit since then, no more wrist wraps too.

    Since everyone's posting squat videos I thought I'd join in. First time trying to squat high bar with a narrow stance. Feet are at about hip width, felt very weird compared to my super wide stance squats.
    140kg, bw of 187lb.

    So have had R shoulder issues for a long time now. Never went to doc because I didn't have health insurance and it was minor enough that I couldn't be bothered. Today had some down time and sat down with an ultrasound machine and took a look with plans to give myself a steroid injection if it looked like it would help. Rotator cuff, labrum, AC joint, and bursa all check out. So my shoulder pain remains a mystery. :(

    And just like a real doctor, he still doesn't know what's wrong.

    Fucking died on deadlift today. 4 on first set, 1 on second. No idea what I did wrong but I felt like I was using my lower back a ton. Fucking hell this is annoying. I should go see someone about this to learn proper form.

    It's possible it's labrum.

    I'm not eligible for military healthcare till June.

    Just beat my previous DL 5RM by 15 lbs. Not a huge deal considering it's 200->215 but still made me pretty happy.

    Did some log clean and presses. I like the attitude of strongman which is use whatever gear you want, any form you want, if you get it overhead that's all that matters.

    I like the gym atmosphere of your gym, virus. But diamond plate steel floors? Looks like a recipe for disaster.
