Me either it was this one that broke http://photos.groups.yahoo.com/group/ve ... %26.view=t
I kind of like the everlast sports bras.. but my chest size has increased quite a bit since I got that bra.. that is good lots of bench presses went into that:) but some of it is fat weight gain its not ALL muscle. I'm moving more toward this style of bra rather than the underwire support kind http://www.championcatalog.com/cgi-bin/ ... 2061000000
if anybody cares.. I know its not relavent to the MALE readers.

I am just running and benching this week.

BB Bench 1 x 36 x 65#
BB Bench 1 x 18 x 70#
BB Bench 1 x 11 x 75#

I wanted to get 40, 20, and 12 respectively.. oh well

Ran 3 miles on the treadmill..

I really need to work on speed. I think I'll try some interval training of 2 - 3 minutes of fast and slow.. slowly increasing my 'fast' speed tonight.

did 2 minute intervals alternating fast and slow. My fast is still slow compared to what my previous race paces were like when I was racing regularly. I'm hoping I will just suck it up and run faster in a race atmostphere.

I really don't want to make excuses for myself. I didn't do very well. I got 33 reps of 70 pounds. They rounded my weight up and made me lift 70 pounds (my % was 67 pounds). My 5K pace was around 11 minutes a mile. I didn't train enough speed work - I'd gotten used to running slow to run the whole 5K. Plus it was 90 degrees out there at 2pm - at least future races will be in the morning when it is cooler. Anyway chalking it up to a learning experience. Must do more speed work.. and must loose some weight:)

ps the woman who won the Pump'N'Run got 75 reps.. there were a few people who got 50+ reps.. so I wouldn't have placed anyway.... I was just upset I didn't do the best that *I* could do.

It was recommended by Mike Mahler. He sent me a link demostrating that move but it doesn't appear to be working anymore. Here is an article where he decribes it though:

I read Mike's article but I'm still not sure what a swing squat is. Can you explain it
