Re: Xorcist's 2010 SS log

Hey man how's it going? Haven't posted in a while, hope you haven't gave up! I'm far from giving up! I took some time off because I got two pretty bad colds back to back and decided that I needed to really let myself rest and recover completely. The whole time I obsessed about getting back to the g...

Re: Tired of being tired

From the way that you describe your problem (sleeping too much, or too often) and self-medication with caffeine your problem sounds more like excessive sleepiness and mental fatigue than a lack of physical energy. If this is the case then it's likely not related to your diet and the cause needs to b...

Re: The Amish don't get autism

I'm supposed to believe this just because some anti-science conspiracy theory website says so?

Re: What made you laugh recently?

I pretty much laugh at everything constantly because life is so absurd I can barely believe it most of the time. The highlight of last week was discovering a certain South African hip-hop band called Die Antwoord. This is the future of music. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4_pS46YRMIQ http://www.you...

Re: Workout Injuries

Yikes! Stories like this make me wonder if I shouldn't be learning complicated lifts like squats and deadlifts from websites and youtube videos.

Sorry to hear that you hurt your back Rob. Hope you feel better soon!

Re: Gym rants

I'm sick of people doing weird shit in the squat rack and not packing it up when they're done. I arrived to find this today. Seriously, WTF. That's hilarious. It's like some kind of strange power rack crop circle. If only you had arrived an hour earlier to witness and document what had happened her...

Re: Xorcist's 2010 SS log

3. Do Chin-ups. Start with Chin-ups. Once you can do 5 reps with proper technique switch to Pull-ups. This is basically what I plan to do to get to pullups. I used to have a doorframe chin-up bar at home and before it broke while I was using it once and I fell on my ass I was able to do about 6-8 c...

Xorcist's 2010 SS log

I recently discovered Rippetoe's Starting Strength program and decided to give it a shot this year in the gym. I've taken the noob version of the program from Practical Programming and swapped in dips for pull-ups since I'm not even close to being strong enough to do pull-ups yet anyways. So the rou...
