  1. It was a rough summer. My training has been fluctuating. More deaths, crazy work, etc. I'm gonna be back regular soon.
  2. Hey Captfit. Thanks so much. Your log is one of the ones I always read as I've been thinking about trying Stronglifts now that I'm beginning to have a decent foundation to work from. Training has been a bit off this week. One of my best friends died Monday night. Gonna miss the rest of the week so I can fly out to Oregon for the memorial.
  3. Right on. Glad to see you here. I've been listening to y'all for over 20 years.
  4. Wow. A member of Extreme Noise Terror is on here? This is my band:
  5. Been training but haven't been logging. Ah, well. Here's today. Soundtrack:Primitive Man-Scorn and Pharmakon-Abandon Pullups-10*10*9*6*5*5*5 Pushups-20*20*20*20*20 Ab Wheel Rollouts-10*10*10 Pistols-5*5*5 I'm doing pullups for the time being to 50, regardless of how many sets it takes me. Varying the grips with everything but chinups as those hurt my elbows. Ab Wheel Rollouts are from the knees. And they are fucking brutal! Finally achieved the pistol squat! I still have to do it over stairs as I don't have the flexibility to keep my non-working leg up yet. I can do them standing on a 10" stool, though. My pushups have been sucking lately so I'm gonna work them back up with various hand positions.
  6. Been training but not logging. Time to make a leap. 92,430+425= 92,855
  7. 5/17 Intervals Soundtrack:Enewetak-Guns...Elvis Loved Them Pullups-5*5(w/14 lbs.)*3&3&2(w.26 lbs.)*1(w/40 lbs.) Pushups-20*20*16&14&10(w/26 lbs.) Decline Situps-20*10&10&10(w/25 lbs.)*5(w/ 50 lbs.) One legged box squats @ 15"(each leg)-5*5*5 The form on the squats was pretty bad. Gonna stay at 18"(a.k.a. my kitchen chair) for a little while longer. TODAY Supersets Soundtrack:Autopsy-Acts of the Unspeakable Pullups and Pushups-10/25*9/25*8/25 Inverted rows with feet elevated and pike pushups with feet elevated-7/5*7/7*7/5 One legged box squats @ 18" (each leg) and hanging knee raises-5/10*5/8*5/8 Split squats with two 25 lb. dumbbells (each leg) and weighted(w/25 lbs.) decline sit ups-5/15*5/15*5/15 Gonna get my numbers back up. Haven't been giving any real time to endurance. The supersets are a nice change, too. Form on one legged squats is much better with those extra 3".
  8. Unless you know a vegan that will want them, I'm not sure why it would matter. Would you feel better with someone buying it to just paddle around on the lake, deflate it, and drive to Long John Silver's afterward?
  9. Ethical reasons, although I don't believe that it's really going to change much. It seems in recent years that if veganism is going to be marginally acceptable, it will be as a result of health reasons.
  10. Friday 5/10 Soundtrack:I*Spy-Revenge of the Little Shits Pullups-8*5(w/14 lbs.)*3(w/26 lbs.)*1(w/40 lbs.)*5 Pushups-30*20(w/feet at 18")*10(w/feet at 36")*5(pikes w/feet at 36")*25 My legs and core were still on fire from the previous workout so I gave them a little more rest. My one 40 lb. pullup is a personal best. Today Soundtrack:Cancer-To the Gory End Pullups-10*10*8 Pushups w/feet at 18"-20*20*15 Swiss ball crunches holding 25 lb. dumbbell at top of chest-10*10*10 One legged box squats(each leg)-5*5*5 Not much to say about today. I guess my pullup reps are getting a little better after tour and all that. One legged squats form is (very) slowly getting better.
  11. It is, although it isn't what I do for a job anymore. I spent a few years on the road full time playing with bands and working for them every once in a while but not so much anymore. This was more like a break from work to hang out with friends and just get away for a bit.
  12. So, I was out on the road selling merch for my friend's band for 9 days, hence the lack of logging. Touring with a metal band doesn't make it easy to live healthy, so my training suffered as a result. I did do some stuff like pullups on all kinds of random things, pushups, squats, etc. but it didn't really work out to keep things strict. Kind of showed in my upper body stuff today, although I also had a hard time eating enough which factored in as well, I'm sure. Supersets Soundtrack:Bolt Thrower-In Battle There Is No Law Weighted(w/26 lbs.)Pullups-3*3*3 Weighted(w/40 lbs.)Dips-5*5*5 Weighted(w/50 lbs.)decline situps-20*20*5 Weighted(w/50 lbs.)split squats(each leg)-5*5*5 10 Renegade Rows to finish with 25 lb. dumbbells Had to cut the situps short as they started making my lower back hurt really bad if I went below parallel to the floor. I picked up a pair of 25 lb. dumbbells for certain weighted movements and am liking them quite a bit. The renegade rows are fun but get hard in a hurry. Made for a great finisher.
  13. What I found worked best for me was doing pullups frequently. I couldn't do one less than a year ago. Once I could do one, I would do one whenever I walked past my pullup bar. Then I started doing two. If you're bar allows for neutral grip, they're a bit easier and will help develop those muscles. You can also buy resistance bands and hook them over your bar for assistance. Ross Enamait of rosstraining.com has a great video. I used Bodylastics tubes which are not continuous, but the principal is the same. Inverted rows can help, too, plus they work your pulling muscles differently. I do mine with a WOSS suspension trainer, which you can get for less than $30 shipped(http://www.amazon.com/Trainer-Bag-Military-Strap-Metal/dp/B006ZRI0P4/ref=pd_sbs_sg_4/179-9323383-3246717). Hope this helps! EDIT:Can't figure out how to make the video post!
  14. Busy couple of days. Training but no time to log on here. Tuesday, 4/23 Circuits 25 pullups(various grips) 125 pushups 125 dips 50 hanging knee raises Wednesday, 4/24 Circuits Soundtrack:Genocide Organ-Under Kontrakt Weighted(with 26 lbs.) inverted rows-10*10*10 Weighted(with 40 lbs.) dips-6*6*6 Weighted(with 40 lbs.) situps-20*20*20 One legged squats(each leg)-5*5*5 Too much beer and bourbon after work on Wednesday night. Didn't do my daily pullups, etc. Today Circuits Soundtrack:Unruh-Misery Strengthened Faith Weighted(with 40 lbs.) inverted rows-6*6*6 Weighted(with 40 lbs.) dips-6*6*6 Hanging knee raises-10*10*10 One legged squats(each leg)-5*5*5
  15. Thanks! I'm figuring as long as I get at least one push, one pull, one core and one lower that I'm doing OK. Circuits Soundtrack:Eyehategod-In The Name of Suffering Weighted(w/26 lbs.) pullups-5*4*4*4*4 Weighted(w/40 lbs.) dips-6*6*6*6*6 Hanging knee raises-10*10*10*10*10 One legged squats(each leg)-5*5*5*5*5
  16. Circuits Soundtrack:Emmylou Harris-Angel Band Pullups-5*5*5*5*5 Pushups-20*20*20*20*20 Squats-20*20*20*20*20 Pullups were pronated, close grip, neutral, chinup and towel. I'm gonna try and make this a daily thing.
  17. Interval sets Soundtrack:Autopsy-Severed Survival Pushups-20*20*20*20*20*20 Pullups-10*10*6*5 Pike pushups with feet elevated 3'-10*10*8 Neutral grip pullups-9*7*7 Dips-12*8*8*10 Chinups-6*5*5 Wasn't planning a upper body only work out when I started but kinda went with it. I'm certainly feeling it now. More so than my circuits and previous workouts. Seventy pullups and 186 push reps. My arms are rubbery. Kinda makes me want to try the 100 pullups in an hour.
  18. 120 pushups 28 pikes with my feet elevated 3'(.9m) 90,230+148= 90,378
