    Any recommendations on inexpensive cameras to record your lifts? Going to be doing that once I'm back in the gym next month and would like to not break the bank.

    Also, I've been eating chicken all day. I think I've noted it before, but I find it difficult to stomach a lot of chicken unless it's been in the slow cooker and then shredded.

    If it's just for the gym you should be able to get one of those Flip video cameras for cheap now that they've been discontinued.

    I use a Kodak Zi8 which goes up to 1080p HD. It gets used for other stuff too -- road trips, parties, etc. I plan to get a Kodak Playsport ZX3 or ZX5 next summer for when I go snorkeling.

    Haha, awkward video. The article was rough on it, too. Trainers sure love to make their "despite success in their personal life, I see erryone still needs exercise" and "I'm so proud of him" statements. lol @ rolling around on blankets like toddlers. lol @ skinnycut trainer unable or unwilling to duplicate his results for bandmember 2 years later.

    Just him and maybe two other guys but Tooch was the only one that was mindful enough to give me a referral. Minimum sign up is good for a free month for me. Not much but, hey, it's something!

    I have been thinking about training with John long before I fucked around with this thread, but it made my decision a hell of a lot easier with Charly answering all my questions and what not. Plus, if you see the results his clients get, you'd make the choice as well...

    The day you want to get stronger :) Just kidding, its a good community and only the one that has been strength verified can give advice which makes the board a lot cleaner.

    I find IA a bit hard to navigate, only fitness forum I post on is T-nation occasionally. Missed that 4 plate deadlift by 5kg, feels badman. Annoyed because 175kg flew up, but 180kg wouldn't budge off the floor. Speed work is working at least. Felt Westside as fuck today. Worked up to a single on the deadlift then did some light wide stance box squats because I hate unilateral leg work and refuse to do it even if joe defranco says I should, then finished up with some light high rep good mornings. Would have done some ab work, but I still can't without rib pain.

    Edit: Just weighed in at 200lb, thought I'd look bigger then I do at this weight, but 6'3" 200lb isn't really that big. Also according to my BMI I am now considered overweight yaaaay.

    I hear you, can't stand unilateral leg work even though it may be useful.

    well with all the neck and back problems i am having i am basically down to doing this 3x a week:

    cable laterals -3 x 12-15
    incline machine press - 5 x 12-15
    cable curls or hammer curls - 3 x 12-15
    rope pressdowns or cable french press - 3 x 12-15
    hanging leg raise - 5 x 15
    glute ham raise - 3 x 12-15
    str8 arm pull- 2 x 12-15
    chins or lat pull- 3 x 12-15
    leg press- 3 x 12-15

    all fairly light but seems to help me maintain size and shape well enough.

    also, 2 x a week am doing the following circuit as part of a class:

    30 seconds tire flip, 30 rest
    30 seconds rope slams, 30 rest
    farmer's walk across gym, run 6 flights of stairs x 2, then farmer's walk back across

    repeat 3x, kicks my ass
