    honestly, if youre not competing, you have no business using wraps.

    I just use them if I feel like ego lifting.


    Come at me uni, made my offer today, dorms have a kitchen and gym across the street, none of this bullshit catered crap. Feels good man. Gonna eat chicken breast and yams all day and lean bulk. Considering hopping on a bicycle when im there, but not sure yet.

    Did speed work for the first time in a while today 15x2, felt good.

    Yeah, a friend of mine is going to the meet with me to watch. Next week, I'm going to have him wrap my knees a few times. If it's similar to the tightness of my wraps, then I'll have him wrap me at the meet. I don't want something too different as to throw me off at the meet you know?

    As it turns out, the lab that did my blood work didn't check my thyroid and T-levels. They checked my thyroid and... PSA level. Needless to say, I have to go back in tomorrow and get blood drawn again to find out where my T-levels are at.

    P.S. My prostate is in great shape, guys. :)

    Did a bunch of paused squats last night. Not fun, but seems like a good way to expose form problems (particularly if you tend to get soft at the bottom).

    I hate my gym's squat racks. I go so low that the lowest safety bar level is too high up, but the rack itself is too low to safely bail.

    Dude at the gym was using lifting straps to do pull-ups.
    (EDIT: meant lat pulldowns)

    Ran a mile for the first time in my VFF's and then did ascending sets of front squats to see where i should train at. Holy shit my inner thighs and calves. ow. ow. ow.

    Try sprinting in the VFF's. Your calves will know true pain.

    Isn't pull ups a fairly common application of straps?
