Re: xCx - Strength training log

Yeah I started off on SL but switched to 3x5 around 90kg cause it was just too much (took me forever too). Lately I've been eating between 3500-4000 calories with about 1g/lb protein. My squat's still been going up but I haven't increased bodyweight in over a month (at 165lbs right now), so maybe th...

Re: xCx - Strength training log

Hey man, I assume you were on SS since before you started this log and I'm wondering how you've kept it up so long. I recently passed the 100kg squat mark and I'm finding it pretty hard to go in and basically squat my max 3x5 every day. I see you recently added in a light day but you've also progres...

4/14/10 Squats: 106.5kg 5,5,4 Bench Press: 63.5kg 3x5 Hang Cleans: 35kg 5x3 Dips: 12,9,6 I was thinking about today's squats all day and when I finally got to the gym I nailed 'em. I was concentrating on lifting my upper body rather than the weight which I think helped me focus my strength more. Be...

Re: coroho's strength training log

Thanks for the encouragement. I'm going to try putting more of an emphasis on sleep for a while and see if that helps. I usually lay down so I'd get 8 hours but it takes me a while to fall asleep and whatever. Weight: I've been hovering around 165 for the past month or so, but it feels like my body ...

Re: Best tasting vegan protein powder?

^Yeah, I get gemma unflavored & unsweetened from TP and usually have it with (unsweetened) soymilk. Never really minded it, even came to start liking it last batch I had.

Re: coroho's strength training log

Thanks guys. I just realized my squat is approaching 1.5BW (would be 112kg), hadn't even been paying attention to that lately. Maybe I can get it in the next month or so. Rob, I was using True Protein's BCAAs but I found out later they were in fact not vegan. That's part of the reason I didn't reord...

I just wasn't feeling it once I got done with that first set though. I tried to force a second but barely ev...

Re: Squatting and risk of injury?

I've been squatting 3 times a week for about 9 months now and feels good, man. Of course I dealt with a couple injuries along the way, so do listen to your body. I recommend reading the squat section in Starting Strength if you haven't already. Some wear and tear is normal but anything more is likel...

Re: Parker's Lifting Blog

so my thinking has always been that I should load in on some carbs before the gym, and give them about an hour or so to digest a little. if anyone sees egregious error in my thinking, let me know! :| Different things seem to work for different people. Some people like to workout on an empty stomach...
