I nearly posted here earlier today saying you better not be slacking! Glad you found a new gym to meet your needs =] OH press are quickly becoming my least favorite exercise.

PS. You could've argued, punched the guy AND found a new gym :lol:

Haha! If you notice me slacking, please do yell and tell me to get my ass moving :lol:

OHPs are so freaking hard! Some say that deadlifts are hard, but seriously! heavy OHPs get my head so red i sometimes wonder if it might explode, haha.

All of my lifts seem heavier than usual, so I'm still staying at my current weight. I suspect that bar at my old gym might actually not have weighed 20kg.

Post a video of you doing squats!

Maybe you could post it on the Squats topic in the Bodybuilding section and the subject would go back to Squats instead of pubic hair removal.

Does your lower back hurt when you're doing them?

I wouldn't really call it a painful sensation, but it's something i shouldn't be feeling that's for sure. I'll try and get some decent footage of my squat next time :wink:

Thanks JW :) SS and SL are both really good programs. I've gotten much stronger and gain quite a lot of mass, so I'm definitely seeing good results.

Sunday 12/07-09

Sick and tired of having to deal with my lower back I figured I'd try and change things up a bit. I know I should keep at it and try to correct whatever is making my lower back dodgy, but I don't have anyone to turn to for advice or coaching. I'm gonna try and get a vid of my squat, and hopefully some of the wiser learned squatters can give me some pointers to what might be wrong. Until then I'm just gonna have fun and try out the oly squat :)

Oly Squat
Warm up sets: 5x20kg - 5x40kg - 5x50kg - 5x60kg - 3x70kg - 1x80
3x5 90kg - This was ridiculously hard!! I never i mind my would have thought oly squats would be this tough and I damn near didn't get out of the hole on the last rep, so I might drop the weight a bit more. I'm not 100% sure I'm doing it right, in fact I might be doing some weird Frankenstein PL/oly hybrid squat, but non the less I was having fun learning this style.

Bench press
Warm up sets: 5x20kg - 5x30kg - 5x40kg - 3x50kg - 2x65kg
3x5 75kg

Deadlift
Warm up sets: 5x60kg - 5x70kg - 5x80kg - 5x90kg - 5x100kg - 3x110kg - 2x120kg - 1x130kg
1x5 140kg

Pull-ups
3x5

Weighted Sit-ups
3x7 (30kg)

Man! Haha, I'll have something ready as soon as my girlfriend (and the digicam) comes home from Portugal. That'll be sometime next month. Until then I'll be playing around with the Oly squat :D
