As I understand it, Creatinine is a by product of Creatine. However, if you take a buffered creatine, Creatinine will not occur. I use both Con-Cret and Purple K and have never had a problem with Creatinine.

Yes, deadlifts first on back day! It's the #1 back lift.

Indeed - insane volume on shoulders. Have you ever tried Face Pulls instead on bent over rear delt flys?

High creatinine levels in urine (remember the pee in a cup exercise?) means my kidneys were doing a crap job at clearing the creatinine (waste). In a diabetic this isn't great news. My levels in my blood itself were normal, so the instruction from the Doc was to reduce the grams of protein per day temporarily to see if my kidneys would return to normal... they did and so YEP, I'm back to about 1G per lb BW (185g-200g roughly).

Yes on the face pulls... the "Seated Row to Neck" is similar

Deads will be a part of my back day from now on!
This sumo stance takes my lower back out of the equation.

I still have some work to do before I get this sumo squat form down though.

What do the numbers listed to the right of the lift name mean?

How do you like front squats?

Squatter, I use "JEFIT" app for my phone to track my workouts...
For each exercise the app figures the 1RM for that exercise.
So for example, on the Front Squats "206.67" is the 1RM today.
The cool thing is not only can I use that as a guide for progress, but I can choose to beat that prior to performing the work...

I've had my right shoulder repaired in 2009; my left has crap mobility so I cannot get my hand back far enough to help support the bar... so...
I use Front Squats a lot + I've used a "safety squat" bar as well...

Thanks for asking!

OK - gotcha! Although the 1RM calculation is likely inaccurate, I can sure see how you can just use the number as a motivation tool and for measuring relative progress.

Are you able to do high bar squats? I noticed when I switched from low bar to high the big releif on my arms and shoulders, not too mention less leaning forward.

With that said, it is admirable you do the fronts. Nothing wrong with doing them as opposed to back squats.

I did the front squats today with a modified sumo stance...
I'm liking this technique, but it will take some practice.
Also I threw in some kettle bell sumo squats as well in today's routine.
