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.

    With a medium to flirting-with-serious 5x5 for 10 months out of last year, I went from never having squatted before to topping out at 175 while still maintaining enough of a running regimen that I can do 2mi twice and a 5mi+ once a week (I know, I know - fuck the cardio - but it's in my blood).

    I'm gonna squat 250 by end of next year with the same cardio level, and keep my 33" waist. I'm 6'3" @ 180, wanna stay about there - maybe a bit more mass.

    Along the way I learned to love the military press, but I flat out suck at pull ups. Still topping out at a wimpy ass 4 - yeah, four. Gotta get to 10 or, fuckin-a, 15 by end of next year.

    I plan on running a half marathon late this year. I am also looking into trying a sprint triathlon before the year is out. My ultimate goal is to shake this nagging injury I have and get back into "game" shape. I started playing soccer in a seniors league (the first time I have played soccer in my life) and I am trying to put together a basketball team. I can put in lots of miles but it still will not get me in the kind of shape I need to be in to play in either league the way I expect from myself.

    didn't do so well in 2011 with my goals because of a nagging neck/shoulder injury but looking to get back into it for 2012.

    Surf City Full in early Feb. would really like to break 4:00

    Breath of Life Olympic distance tri in June

    Naples Island 3 mile swim in August/Sept - this will be the most difficult by far for me

    Endure the Bear 30K in Sept

    and i'll probably get in a few halfs here and there.

    someone should resurrect this thread in December 2012.

    6'1 190lbs at 10% body fat. I am at 192.5lbs right now on my bulk and plan to keep bulking till March. My body fat level is starting to get very uncomfortable for me though. I will stick with it and start cutting slowly in March. I lift for aesthetics strength is a good side effect for me.

    some of you guys have some pretty serious goals.

    right now I have a couple for the year -

    1. finally get up to 220 on my routine bench
    2. 100 rep (with rests in the middle) overheard squat with 2 X 24 kilo kettlebells
    3. 10 mile race in may
    4. possibly chicago marathon

    Yup, was just curious how lofty the goals are. 585 is a lot man, not to get you down, but just program well and don't get discouraged. Better to start out conservative and work your way up. I remember that going from 405>500 was quite hard for me, 5lb increases after that are..a big big jump.

    -400/300/500. The bench should def be doable, still ways to go on the other two
    -Do more climbing, don't be as awful at it as last year
    -Run 3 half marathons
    -One-arm pullup
