4/20/10 - Update

I went on vacation a week ago -- went to LA. Times were great, food was alright (decent calorific/nutritional intake), but I didn't get to the gym for SEVEN DAYS!

Lost a lot of progress. I'm disappointed in myself, and I'm sure all of you can relate to these setbacks, but I'm back in the gym for the past few days trying to get my numbers and my appetite back up.

I'll continue to post my nutrition + workout log as soon as I feel back up to par.

Keep rippin' it!

I'm back!

It's been over a year since I've utilized this website, and I'm ashamed. :oops:

I forgot how much I love the community here and how beneficial it is to keep track of what I'm doing. I've been hitting the gym regularly, as usual, but things have changed (for the better) since last time this year.

6'0, 170 lbs.
Bench (4rep) 205
Deadlift (4rep) 225
Squat (4rep) 205

Clearly my squats need work; I actually just worked with an olympic powerlifter yesterday -- he taught me front squats and critiqued my back squats. Also taught me proper form for Romanian Dead Lifts (RDLs), and today my hamstrings are torn up.

I've been incorporating a lot more cardio into my routine, and worrying less about MASS MASS MASS and more about balance, power, and progress. I think it's healthier, mentally and physically.

I hope you'll welcome me back, and I look forward to hearing your thoughts on my workout/daily food intake log. :boxer:

Nice to have you back here. :mrgreen: I'm with you on both of these points. Updates for me have not been regular anymore. I'd like get back here in the community though because it is very motivating 8)

Also, for me right now, i'm not focusing on size. Basically I want to have muscles that will be more functional and then build on top of them. Flexibility is so darn important and balance too.

Looking forward to seeing your updates and glad you're making progress!
