  1. Just by caliper a tthe gym. I'm more excited about the metabolic rate test I'll do soon.
  2. I know the feeling. I get same thing when I do behind the neck push presses. I'm giving them up until my shoulders are stronger.
  3. 195.5 today. bf% and measurements being taken friday morning. power clean and press. 135 x 5reps for 6 sets 135 for 4 sets of triples. upright row 70lbs 5 x 10 dumbell one arm shoulder press. (i let my left arm set the reps) 45lbs x 10, 5, 5, 5, 5 lat raises 20's x 8, 8, 7, 7, 8 that is all
  4. Thanks, chewy! Considering my one rep max was 275 last I checked, I'm quite happy about it. Might be time to retest soon.
  5. Yesterday was a video practice, so no running. I went to the gym with a teammate instead. Squats 135 x 2 x10 reps. 225 x 5 245 x 3 250 x 4 sets of triples. Chins. 6 sets of triples. That was about it. Today marks day 6 of IF. Still no issues besides needing to eat a bit more, but that's nothing new. Still 195 with food in me. Still quite like it.
  6. I'm at statera at selby and grotto. $30/mo for students. Never busy. independently owned. All pluses. Its small and only has one power rack, though.
  7. Yay! be here!! enjoy it. this place is rad. also, you should join my gym when you move. It's about 2 blocks from the mississippi market on selby and dale. also, you should move to st paul. minneapolis blows. lol.
  8. game today. fasted through warmups until noon. ate then, game at 1:30. No energy or strength issues, although I wasn't sure if i'd keep my veggie sushi down through the rest of warm ups. Went super well though. Absolutely no complaints about IF through a game day. I'm happy I overate by about a solid 700 calories yesterday, though.
  9. thanks mary. I try to be nice, but i'm a fan of making people run or otherwise work. on thursday (10/7/10. first day of IF) I was at 194 in the gym. (water weight gone, mostly.) lat pulldowns (power rack was being used, couldn't start there. was hoping for a squat day.) 120 x 10, 10, 10, 8, 8 dumbell snatches (these are actually pretty fun!) 55lb x 5/side 65 x 5/side x2 75 x 15 singles per side. Considering I missed the 75 on tuesday with my left side I was pretty pleased, but to be fair, i had more time to try/focus. Barbell Rows 135 x 9, 8, 8, 8, 8 Tried to do some back squat/push press (behind the neck) 135x5, but these kill my shoulders. not in a good way. I think I'm done trying. even if they are kinda rad. Clean/front squat/push press 135x3. easier on my joints, but just didn't have it. ws getting gassed on power moves. Deadlifts. 225 x 5 275 x triples for 4 sets 225 x 10, 8 shrugs 315 x 10 x 4 405 x6 x2 barbell curl superset w/ overhead tri extension (did these between shrug sets) 60lbs x 6 each x 4 70lbs x 6 each x 2
  10. Yeah, they are. I can get a 62 lber locally for $110. Not silly expensive, but still kind of a lot for one kettlebell. Yesterday. Rugby practice. Not much challenging to note, but I was sick of seeing all the dropped passes, so I had everyone do 5 pushups for every dropped pass. We ended up doing 85 pushups.
  11. Nope. I'm toying with selling my oly set for a big kb, since I lift at the gym, and I could bring a kb to practice MUCH more easily.
  12. Didn't super keep track today, but 5 or 6 sets of 6-8 incline bench @ 95 12 dips 20 bar only front squats 10 pull ups 5 sets of 6 upright row, overhead tri press @ 60lbs 4 sets of 10 lat pulldown at 120 A couple of pistols one each leg at 25, 35 and 45 lb dumbells. (Couldn't get a barbell. Balance is different. But I will) 5/side dumbell snatch @ 45, 55, 60lbs and 1 right hand snatch @ 75lbs. Will get the left hand. These are awesome. Dumbells only to 75 at mygym though. Need to use a barbell soon. I'm excited
  13. Showed up early for practice and ran/did some other stuff. Approx 100 pushups by the time it was all said and done. approx 50 15 meter sprints. 5 pistol squats per leg 3 alternating leg pistol jump squats. 20 burpees. 1 x 30 count plank 1 x 30 count superman 30 situps 20 leg lifts. Then we practiced.
  14. When you say skate, are you shreddin' some gnar, brah, or are you taking up hockey?
  15. Mary, iknow. Slowlybut surely they're all coming in. And ruhtroh, I can do pistols. I bet I could do a front squat with a barbell on one leg. I will certainly be trying now.
  16. Good day today, considering partially torn bicep. 10/3/10. 193lbs (intentional. Trying to lose water weight and lean out/get faster/more explosive) Standing overhead press. 95lbs (weak, I know, but strict as hell) sets of 8, 8, 7, 6, 7. Lat pulldown. 115lbs 5 sets of 10. Standing overhead push press. 145lbs. Sets of 5, 5, 4, 5, 5, 5, 4. 1 arm deadlift. (For lolz, right arm.) 135lbs w/o strap for 5 reps. 225 w/strap for 2 singles. (Like I said, just for fun) Dips. Sets of 7, 5, 7, 7, 7. Shrugs. 405 lbs. Sets of 6, 8, 6, 6, 6. That's all. Felt good on everything but the strict presses.
  17. Yep. Still tough. Just checking. Keep it up. Sorry about the drugs.
  18. 9/30/10 Feeling super fat around the middle. Weight is 'normal'. Maybeits just because I haven't been as active due to injury.oh. well. Will try some fine tuning. I hve some ideas. Anyhow. Tried tosquat since I still can't really use my left arm. Didn't go well. 135 x 10 twice. 225 x 5 and 3. Then my arm was bugging me, so I just said 'fuck it' and hit the leg press. 2 45's/side (298 after machine weight) x 30 3/side (388) x 10 x 2 4/side (478) x 10 x 2 5/side (568) x 10 x 2 6/side (658) x 10 x 2 7/side (748) x 5 x 4, 3 x 1 5/side x 10 4/side x 10 1/side x 20 Went home.
  19. Lol. I'm fine, thanks though. I'll be fine by saturday, I think, and even so, we've got a bye week.
  20. He's saying that the muscle pump/swoll feeling you get when you lift high reps doesn't really mean much aside from you having a lot of blood in your muscles. He could probably be more eloquent with it, though. He saying that pump does not equal progress.
  21. Negatory, good buddy! I grabbed the back of a foes jersey after I chased him down and basically tried to bicep curl him (because I couldn't reach the rest of him) to the ground, and his legs were stronger than my left arm. So, the eccentric motion while i was resisting is what did it. Finished the game, but got progressively more painful as the days went on. Went to hospital monday before practice and had it diagnosed as a partial tear. Oh well, just an intense dull ache today. Still gonna sit out contact.
  22. Well, played 80 minutes of rugby on saturday. 3 different postions (8,12 and 10) and have a partially torn bicep to show for it. But, its healing well, and I have a sick bruise. No gym since friday, I wanted to go today, but didn't have time before it closed. Just an update.
  23. Yeah, I know, chewy. Both playin' and fat issue. I'll make it. Not worried. Just feeling small and fat at the same time. :/ its all good. I'll bounce back. And your progress is great. Keep it up. You're inspriring.
  24. @ sosso, he does. @chewy fair enough. I thoughbeinghonest was the way to go, which is why I said it wasn't really in my plans. And there is no 'cut' involved. Not eating any less. Trying to nake the abz bigger. I've had a 4 pack forever and can't shake the spare tire at the bottom (which is why I was getting pissed last page on here) I dunno man, I want it all, and I'm not patient. But progess is continually being made. And a 440lb dead would be sick, but I bet you could hit 220 on the bench in a month or two (for a rep, at least)
  25. The other day before rugby I went to the gym. I did 5 or 6 sets of barbell curls at 70lbs for 7-10 reps. supersetted with probably tri pulldowns @ 57.5 lbs. Did some weighted decline crunches (cause my girlfriend said she wanted to see a 6pack, "cause they're sexy". which i totally back, by the way. I told her it wasn't really in my goals, but I'd see what I can do...) with a 25lb plate. a few sets of 10 crunches, and a few sets of 5 a side oblique crunches. then a few sets of 405# shrugs for reps 6-8 reps. TODAY, I was focused more on abz/armz. (cause I feel like brickwork style abz are rad, and i have pathetically small arms and it's on the verge of pissing me the fuck off) 3 different tri-sets. first was a circuit of preachers curls (60lbs) (sets of 10, 10, 9, 9, and 6) Dips (no added weight. never done before!) (sets of 10, 9, 7, 7, and 7 to at least parallel) shrugs (405lbs) (sets of 8, 6, 8, 8, and 6) 2nd was a circuit of incline bench dumbell hammer curls (at 25lbs) (4 sets of 10) overhead barbell tri extensions (57.5 lbs) sets of 10, 12, 11 and a set of 10 at 60lbs as a closer) weighted decline crunches (25lbs) (10 straight-5 each side, 10 straight- 5/4 sides, 10 straight x 2) 3rd was a circuit of barbell curls (70lbs) (sets of 6, 5, 6) tricep rope pull downs (57.5 lbs) (sets of 6, 7, 8 ) back hypers (45lb plate against chest) (3 sets of 10) Then I peaced to home. Good day. Rugby game tomorrow. 2nd of the season. I hope to play #8 again. I would be surprised if I didn't.
