Great work. How's the progression moving along?

I think I could be a bit more consistent if I had 1/2lb plates, but it's going just fine anyway.

Accidentaly I used different plates by the last workout, so I deadlifted 80kg instead of 70kg o.o'
I only realized that when I finished the first set. I could barely complete the second set's last rep, but somehow I did it. My form wasn't 100% though. So I'll get back to the regular progression (70kg) and keep on adding 1kg per workout.

On the other hand, my squat is beating me down. I haven't had as much progress as I would like to.

I misload plates quite often. I did it this week with overhead presses.

Don't let the squats get you down. Microload at a smaller pace if you have to. Sometimes your body needs to build up some tendon strength, or your CNS needs to adapt. It will come.

Coming to think about it, I've always squatted, that's true, but my earlier form was terrible. I'm relatively new to the full squat taught by mark rippetoe, while I've always dedlifted and benched the same way.

It feels just great being able to taste your maximum strength in every exercise instead of just wearing out your muscles.


Augusts' checkpoint! (last one was 06/14/11)

08/14/11
Weight - 75kg (+2.8kg)
Thighs(largest point, flexed) - 60.5cm (+1.5cm)
Arms(relaxed) - 33.6 (+1cm)
Calves - 35cm (+1cm)

Not bad, I think, but it could've been better. My nutrition's being less than ideal.
I didn't record chest and shoulders measures in the past few months, but I know everything's bigger as well. Even my calves! I just can't believe it: my calves have been 34~34.5cm since last december. Now they've grown half an inch in about two months.

Bodyfat's a little highier, but still fine.
From now on, I'll be using "Casey Butt's measurements", which I believe to be the "standard".
Here we go:

14/08/11
Height - 182cm
Weight - 75kg
Chest: 103cm
Shoulders: 122cm
Arms(flexed): 35.5cm
Arms(relaxed): 33.6cm
Forearms: 27.6cm
Thighs(midpoint, relaxed): 55.5cm
Thighs(largest point, flexed): 60.5cm
Calves: 35.5cm
Waist: 82cm
Hips: 96.5cm
