Official weigh in: 192. Early in am, no food, no water, nothing.

8.5% body fat. Same as it was back in january. :)

9.5lbs lean body mass added since feb. And .5lbs of fat in the same time period.

Not too bad. Time to get bigger, though.

maybe try stretching your hips out before you squats. Hold a deep isometric squat before you lift. If you can get into a better squat position but opening up those hips and stay back on those heels. hopefully you won't end up ditching the weight forward. and you can be happier about your squats. good luck.

Yesterday I didn't get to the gym...date night with the lady messing up my plans. (yes, mostly kidding) we did go to a batting cage, though. More a mental workout than a physical one. :)

Gonna start doing arms/abz, bro in the ams (2 a days!)

Today was 45lb fot 12reps on barbell curl and overhead tri extensions.

Then 5x10 at 65lbs for both lifts.

Also 5x10 each side for 45lb plate side bends.

Compound lifts later.

Sorry to hear about the depression. Maybe your feeling tired and overtrained. Do something fun!

Not overtrained. Promise. 100% sure.

have a good weekend in the works. I'm sure I need it. What I need is for rugby season to be over so I get some free time. That'd be nice.

Thanks for the support, though. I've been bad about reading logs, but I hope your ankle is doing better. I'm going to check right now!
