    my girlfriend cannot go to a gym without getting harassed or constantly given advice so going as a pair tends to reduce that

    I really need to prioritize ending my workouts with a quick stretch/cooldown. My hamstrings are starting to feel really tight. There's only so much that foam rolling can do (which I always end up doing on days I don't lift)...

    I've made a point to stretch after every workout and it's already working wonders. My posterior chain has always been inflexible and in 2 months I've gone from finger tips touching the floor to being able to put my palms flat down. Feels good

    Awesome! How long do you usually stretch for?

    That sucks, I can't help but think this is a humblebrag post though about how hot your girlfriend is.


    QFE, girls with a lot of muscle mass gross me out. Some of them look like they'd rip your dick off if they gave you a handjob.

    I would say probably 7-10 minutes. I focus mainly on stretching the muscle group i worked that day and just a few other small stretches.

    Did my 155# bench 5x5 tonight. First rep first working set, I felt my shoulder "pop". Somehow managed to finish my sets without any issues. Shoulder was immediately tender in a very focused spot. Eventually got more dull and spread out. It's pretty minor and doesn't hurt much (mobility isn't limited at all)... icing it down now. Anything else I should be doing (besides thinking about doing more warm up sets next time)?

    what a shit work out day!

    Squat
    135 @ 1x5
    145 @ 1x5
    failed 145
    135 @ 1x5"

    "Bent Row
    40 @ 4x6"

    "Curl
    Failed"

    "Calf Raises
    0"

    Basically after my miserable lifts in squat, I just gave up rest of the night.
    Some how managed to hurt my left arm so when I curl there is sharp pain along the inner forearm leading to the pit of my elbow. :fu:

    Anyways, I was reading bits of IA about warming up and stretching so it kind of screwed with my psyche when doing the squat.

    Wanted to warm-up hypothetically:
    45 1x5
    135 1x5
    145 1x5
    155 1x5 <--- PR

    Just miserable.
    And to make matters worse, dude who started later than me and look to weigh less, is squatting more than me now with butt to floor essentially. I think my squat form is really bad as I am DLing 1.5x body weight pretty good but cannot squat for the life of me.

    Toast, I'm sure it's been said already but you should probably deload, start doing something like SS/SL where you're squatting 3x a week, follow a proper warm up as outlined by either of those programs, do progressive loading, etc. Not that my opinion is worth two shits but a few months ago, my lifts were stuck and I was doing a bullshit routine where there were basically no gains. I've made way more progress in the last few months than I did doing stupid routines for over a year (not that IA SPBR is stupid... they should just have a disclaimer saying your squat/bench/ohp/dl should be at a certain minimum level before starting it).

    Yeah I am doing some investigating and reading.

    Been on SPBR since last October. =\
    We'll see how my bench goes this Wed.

    My only goal as of now is to see my numbers move up.
