I've been slacking on updating lately... I'll try and be more attentive! I've just been busy with school, music, life, work, etc. etc. etc. STILL not gaining any weight. The max I've weighed in at (and this is an hour or two after eating a large lunch) is 149lbs. What the hell!!!! I really want to get up to the 160 range. Someday...
Also, I've noticed that since I've started eating more, I have 4/5 shits a day. Is my body assimilating anything, or is it just shitting everything out? Is this normal, or could it be a possible cause of why I'm not gaining?
StrongLifts Workout B:Squats 5x5
@ 110LBS (bar + 32.5lbs on each side)Overhead Press 5x5
... 3 @ 7.5kg/side, then 3 @ 6.25kg/side. Then did 5 @ 5kg/side, and then failed the last rep of the last set. Chinups 3xF
... 7/6/5 + 5 negatives on each set. LOVE doing chinups! Deadlifts 1x5
115lbs (bar + 35lbs on each side) Incline Reverse Crunches 3xF
... about 8-10 each set, and then super setted with incline crunches.
Ran into my first failure today. OP was just killer. It may have been because I was essentially supersetting them with my chinups, as I was in a bit of a rush to get out of the gym. Either way, my shoulders got a hell of a workout, which is the point afterall, right?
I think I figured out my squat form finally. Will post a video on Friday before I leave to Portland.

My sqauts are getting VERY close to max. The last few sets I had to grind through with a lot of stalls. I caught myself cheating with bad technique a few times, but quickly corrected it.
On a positive note, my knees no longer hurt when I squat. It's mainly my hip flexors and groin that get sore (because I'm now squatting REAL deep).
That's all for today. Wish me luck gaining weight (or send me weight gainer recipes)!
