  1. What kind of bikedid you get? I HIGHLY doubt you need to take anything too far apart to fix the fork (the but youre talking about that holds the wheel). Take picture and I can easily walk you through it.
  2. You're half right. But I only have one shirt like that. today was upper body split day. incline bench. 95 x 8 135 x 6 155 x 3 145 x 4, 4, 4 155 x 2, 2, 2, 1 dumbell bench 45 x 6 65 x 6, 3 60 x 6, 6 wide grip chins sets of 4, 4, 4, 3, 3 Upright Rows 100lbs 5 sets of 10. the last rep of the 4th set and the last 2 reps of the 5th set had a few seconds rest/pause between them. dips sets of 8, 6, 7, 6, 7 more stupid 75lb dumbell shrugs SSOOOOO BORING! 2 sets of 50 and a set of 20 making sure to hold the contraction at the top for 3 seconds each. Then I went and hung on the pull up bar and did 2 sets of 5 each knee raises and oblique crunches with a 25lb dumbell between feets. think that's all.
  3. Jusr realized I'm wearing the same shirt in both videos AND my avatar... Yes, I do wear other shirts...
  4. Get better soon! You've got weights to crush!!!
  5. Yeah, I ice it often. It's feeling a lot better, just playing it safe.
  6. as promisedhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Une2O4bFoNM I guess that's what the abe lincoln beard is good for. 15lbs of pr on a clean, and almost doubling your pr on a one legged squat...
  7. Was in the gym forever today, and didn't really do a lot, but I had fun! and i figured out the fastest way to that "i'm gonna throw up" nauseous feeling... long warm up with shoulder presses/snatches/cleans/front squats with just the bar. Clean/front squat. Clean each set once, front squat it for said # of reps. 135 x 5 140 x 5 ACK! my log is disappeared on my phone!!! what gives!?!? OH NO! anyhow, from memory, 145 x 5 150 x 3 155 x 3 160 x 1 165 x 1 170 x 1 175 x 1 180 x 1 185 x 1 (pr tie) 190 x BIG OLE FAIL! 190 x 1 (5lb pr, but had to drop to a knee, but kept weight up and recovered it. Does that count?) Just in case that doesn't count, I hit a SUPER clean (as is textbook. no pun intended)... 195 x 1 (10lb pr) 200 x fail 1 legged squats. pistol style. 10lbs x 4 per leg 20lbs x 3 per leg 30lbs x 2 per leg 40lbs x 1 per leg 50lbs x 1 per leg 55lbs x 1 per leg 60lbs x 1 per leg up to this point, all super clean, keeping the unused leg out in front, but that's about the end of that) 65lbs x 0 per leg 65lbs x 1 per leg 70lbs x 1 per leg (fucking amped at this point. gonna max out the dumbells on this, too! 75 x 1 per leg (pretty clean. though, boy I should document this... SO i did, and hit another 75 x 1 per leg (pretty ugly, BUT, up and down on one leg, the unused one never touches, so I'm counting it. Video to be posted as soon as it's uploaded. YAY! Neck curls (this is the "I'm gonna puke" exercise..) one set of 20 each to the front, to the back, to the side, to the side. 20lb dumbell on head/face. good times. then i left.
  8. chewy, either way, that's impressive lifting. Makes me super excited for friday when I go get a membership at The Press. http://http://www.thepressgym.com I am damn ready for a place with bumper plates and all sorts of other awesomeness! (like dumbells I can't even pick up, much less shrug!! lol) Keep up the good work, you're inspiring people.
  9. Jesus man, good work. You'll be at 200k in no time! What did lifting with a belt feel like?
  10. I'd be lying if i said that wasn't impressive. great work,pal! keep it up, and i expect your progress to skyrocket when you join that club!
  11. HEY! thanks, doc! At it again today. two and a half hours today! working up to the 3hr sessions that got Pudz where he's at (you know, except for the roid's, but whatever!) bench (no spotter, my upper body buddy flaked) 95 x 8 135 x 6 145 x 6 155 x 5 165 x 3, 3, 3, 3, 2, 2 (would have had 3 on those last two sets, but no spotter made me not want to risk getting pinned like Ric Flair) Overhead press 105 x 6, 6 115 x 3, 3, 3, 3, 3 tri pullovers 75 x 5, 5, 5, 5, 5 wide grip lat pulldown (back too sore for barbell rows...) 135 x 10, 10, 10, 10, 10 dumbell shrugs 75lbs each hand again, sets of 40, 40, 40, 40, 50 (these are a damn joke.) seated incline curls 20lbs in each hand, but, it wasn't a dumbell. it was 2 10lb plates pinched together in each hand. work that grip! (a lot. these are brutal!) sets of 7, 15, 12, 13, 12 Hanging leg raise (more grip...) 15lb dumbell between feet. 3 sets of 10 hanging oblique cruches 15lb dumbell between feet. 3 sets of 5 per side decline crunches 25lb dumbell beneath chin for 3 sets of 10. then i spent 20 minutes working on snatch form with an empty bar, then 65lbs then 95lbs. I got this. oly lifts are great!
  12. come back stronger from surgery! Gentlemen, we can rebuild him. We have the technology. We have the capability to build the world's first bionic man. Ryan Wilson will be that man. Better than he was before. Better, stronger, faster.
  13. wow. my lower back is completely wrecked. awesome. (not hurt, just super sore and telling me to shove off. so I will) Started with Deads. I figured my new Abe Lincoln chin curtain would add about another 10lbs to my deadlift, but I didn't get the chance to find out too well... 135 x 10 225 x 5 275 x 3 315 x 1 335 x 1 (went up easy, but my back was toast. still is.) 355 x fail x 2 (hell, figured it was worth a shot. couldn't even get it off the ground. no confidence at all) 335 x fail (same story as above) I'll give deads a week before revisiting them. I say that now. I give it until friday, at the longest... Overhead squats (getting a feel for form and where I should have the weight centered. Not as hard as I thought they'd be) 95 x 6 100 x 6 105 x 6 110 x 6 115 x 6 120 x 6 125 x 6 130 x 3. Dumbell Bench 60lbs x 6 for 5 sets. upright row. 90lbs x 10 for 5 sets side raises (i WAY prefer overhead pressing to lat raises...stupid back...) 27.5 x 10, 8, 8 alternating dumbell hammer curls 30lbs x 10/side for 3 sets skull crushers 60lbs x 10, 10 10, 9, 10 dumbell shrugs 75 (heaviest in the gym...) x 3 sets of 40 reps. (stupid back again. I'd rather use the heavy barbell. ) Then I walked on the treadmill at 5mph at a 15% incline for 5 minutes while the football game started. Now I'm icing my back about to watch Predator. The original one.
  14. adena! sorry I never replied to you! i didn't see it until now. anyhow, that didn't take too long. it was the TON of power cleans I did the other day that took almost an hour. Those took maybe 40 minutes? I got all kinds of time now that rugby is over for the season. Time to get jacked! lol. But yeah, I aim for 2 hours in the gym 6 days a week. It works for Kaz, Pudz, Klokov, Stoitsov, Xugang, Ray Lewis, Derek Poundstone, et al. Why not, eh? also, i often don't worry about form too much. Generally, I'm of the opinion to just throw it in the direction it needs to go and/or just try to throw things through the ceiling. which is why I wasn't squatting very low on my power cleans before. Just trying to get them "right". I want to keep doing more of these lifts. I enjoy them more than the powerlifter 3 (save for deads, cause those rule!) I gotta find someone to teach me snatches. those scare me. I do them with 75lb dumbells (one handed) no problems, but something about bar screws me up!
  15. you're right. I never thought to angle the front foot in! That's what I'm talkin' about! Thanks! and you're right. I didn't jerk low because I didn't need to in order to get under it. and the reason I pull it from the floor is because when I try to only pull it to my knees it completely wrecks my rhythm. I'm not good at hang cleans, apparently. Although, it may not look like, but the initial pull of the floor isn't at the same velocity as the clean. I could probably stand to push my elbows through more. THANKS Mary! I'm really enjoying these, so I'll continue to do them. I really want to hit 225 on the clean/jerk.
  16. that's what pals are for. I just got shit from the gym owner today about being in there too often. Tomorrow is a "rest day", but I'm going to get with some friends and build the most giganticest snowmonsterofaman possible. Snow atlas stones!!!! I'm excited. so yeah, I get it. resting is no fun and I don't like it either.
  17. hope you feel better!! but really, do you have planned rest days? i thought unplanned ones were the only ones you got!
  18. any form tips on cleans or power clean/jerks? I'm all ears. First video taken/uploaded! yay! The perks of going to the same gym as a teammate and his wife. I asked her nicely to do me that favor before she left. So, here it is. If say, chewy, or VE, or Mary (or anyone else, obvs) have any form tips, I'd love to hear them. This was after what I have listed above, so I was a bit winded, but 135 has never given me any trouble. Maybe I should have taped the 175 so you could see the form breakdown... i guess I can toss in a picture too...why not?! what's what's going on under the shirt... lol. probably look more defined if i weren't pasty white! whatevs. http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_nlwjTxdWyjY/TN8jI1tkrPI/AAAAAAAAAIw/RDEn01VwGJg/s1600/boobs%2B229.jpg
  19. Lol. Had my panties in a bunch this morning. Got them worked out. Another 2 hour gym day today (as they've often been all week, save for yesterdays shitshow!) just wrecking random shit and having a TON of fun! Clean & Jerk (putting the pieces together) 135 x 5 145 x 3 150 x 2 160 x 1 170 x 1 175 x 1 180 x 0 Then I wanted to work on legit clean form with light weight (and took a video. I gotta figure out how to upload it now!) so I hit 135 x 10, 8, 6 focusing on a real front squat and dip under instead of just muscling out a power clean Dumbell Lat Raises (like I said, fun day. pretty much just fucking around with my exercise selection. you'll see) 25lbs x 10 x 3 Dumbell Flat Bench Press 40 x 10 50 x 9 60 x 3 70 x 1 55 x 10, 6 One 8 rep set of dumbell flyes with 25lbs. Those hurt my shoulder pretty bad. Won't be doing those again. Not that I've ever done them before... A set of 10 per side dumbell tri kickbacks (because I hate that they exist and my co-worker does them. I did them to mock him.) at 30lbs tri rope pushdowns 65lbs x 10, 5, 7 parallel grip lat pulldown 135 x 10 145 x 10 150 x 6 skullcrushers 60 x 11, 8, 8 upright row 80lbs x 10 x 5 (lovin' this exercise) Dumbell row 75 x 10 x 3 per side some silly oblique twist/tri extension that kinda simulatied either chopping wood or dragging something... 65 x 10 x 2 barbell curl 80 x 8, 6 70 x 8, 8 60 x 12 that's all. lol. it was fun. I felt pretty vain today with all the isolation nonsense.
  20. Just fyi. I'm done with heavy back squats. I hate them and they piss me off. I'm not a powerlifter. I'm a rugby player. I'll stick with front and overhead squats. YouHeard it from me first...
