    Kept my weight fairly consistent for the past few months with KB stuff. Little change in body, which is good I guess...I don't want to get much bigger.

    Got my VFF's today. Gonna try running with them after work.

    Once spring comes along, I want to work yoga and running into my routine, but not lose any mass. Maybe a simplified 5x5 push/pull split 2 days a week to keep swole? I can run and yoga on the same day no problem, but lifting and yoga is a bitch.

    After a few hours of doing various stretches, ice, salt bath and some NSAIDs my back feels completely normal again. Surprised how quick I recovered, fucking hurt to begin with.

    Was out of town the past 3 days on business, ate super shitty but only had like 3 meals a day and worked 10-12 hour days, and I maintained! :slayer:

    Actually, I probably lost, because I was at the same weight today as I was before I left, and that's after all the carbs I've consumed and all of the bloating hahaha

    You're like 19, right? Don't be surprised. Wait until you're in your mid-30's. That shit will have you on your couch for a week.

    Was doing good mornings today, 120lbs 4x12. Random brah came over and asked if I was doing squats. Told him it was good mornings. He had no idea what that was but proceeded to tell me to be careful because "if I blow out my back, its game over." It was strange. In other news, I may take the weight on good mornings down a bit, the bar is sliding a bit on my shoulders when I go up and down, doesnt feel good. Not going as far down on them as I used to.

    They might call some of their squats a little high, but whatever. Who are you to talk anyway hahaha

    I have that problem as well. When I squeeze my traps together to place the bar, and come forward with the movement, I pull DOWN on the bar so it drives into my shoulders rather than just use my hands as a brace.

    Q - when you do your good mornings do you bend your knees at all? I try to keep them almost locked but inevitably end up bending them more than I'd like to and I feel it takes the stress away from my low back and puts it on my hammy's.
