I can still hear a drill Sgt telling me to get down and hold.
Thanks btb. It's killing me not to start bulking. I finally feel like my training and diet are solid enough to really pack it on.

Uhg, I'm not looking forward to that part of basic, but from what I've heard if I traing hard I won't have too many issues. My whole squad is in relatively good shape, so I get a hell of a workout just trying to push them.

It's mostly the lack of sleep, and mental strain that becomes difficult. You really just have to become a drone and not think for a while.

I usually become a drone and stop thinking whenever I get to work, so no problem!

Finally got back in the gym today. I've been working on my squat setup and things are paying off. No hip pain, no knee pain. Very wide stance, with feet pointing out past 45*.

Squats-
45x5
135x3
185x3
225x3
275x1
295x1
315x1
225x2
295x1
225x5

Leg extensions-
135x31
*I did 31 total reps, resting a couple times then pounding out some more. The burn was good.

Single leg curls-
40x13
35x12
30x13
*Performed as an alternating drop set with no rest

Standing calf press machine-
140x8
210x8

This was the first time in a long time that I know for a fact that the 315 squat was to parallel. It wasn't too hard either, but I don't need to push myself on the heavy stuff these days. I want to stay strong and healthy, and I felt great about this session.

Interesting, can you talk a little more about what you're changing and why on the squat?

Squatting is excellent Soldier, and with no pain...icing on the cake.

In the past when I used a wider stance it caused pain in my hip joints. Whenever I went wide, I also pointed my feet straighter forward. I had read that pointing more forward was good and should also allow me to push out against the outside of my feet. It never felt that great, but worked.

When my hip pain got worse I moved to a closer stance which seemed to help the pain, but killed my ability to move serious weights and work my whole lower body.

My breakthrough actually came from sitting on the toilet, oddly enough. We have a full length mirror in our bathroon, and one day I caught sight of myself and realized that my legs were right at parallel, and I had no pain. What was different? I looked at myself and realized that my feet were pointing out, the same way they were when I squatted close stance, except my feet were set out really wide.

I went out to the living room and squatted down slowly with that natural stance and went just below parallel with no pain.

When I tried it in the gym everything fell into place. I can descend by sitting back, then push out against my feet as I come up. The only downside is that it takes a number of steps to get into place. I have to unrack it, move back, step out slowly, then actually gather myself again before starting the lift.

Back and shoulders today.

Pendlay rows (supersetted with BTN push presses)-
135x12
185x7
155x10
135x15

BTN push presses-
135x10
135x8
135x9

Upright rows (supersetted with wide grip pull ups)
135x12
135x10+3 partials
135x9+6 partials
*These were performed explosively with no worry about form.

Wide grip pull ups-
BWx5+2 partials
BWx5
BWx4+2 partials

Seated DB military press-
35x20
50x15
65x10
45x10

DB rows-
95x15 (my back was done at this point)

DB curls-
25x12
45x10
35x10

The pump was actually painful today. Supersetting at the beginning got my heart rate through the roof and it stayed there for the whole session. Good, hard session. The pendlay rows were alright. I still prefer the T-bar version because even with going back to the ground every time I still started to get more upright as the set went on. I feel like I can go much heavier on the T-bar version. The grand experiment continues...

Shoulders were pumped like boulders at the end of the session. The cheating upright rows and push presses got my shoulders pumped up hard.

You taking any creatine, or was the pump purely from the epic madness?
