No kiddin? Did you lose weight before then? I decided to look at your first page and it said you were 180lbs.

Seven pounds in two months is pretty badass. How much of that are you thinking is muscle?

Those are some really nice numbers, by the way. Was that 235x12 for olympic squats I saw? Damn. That's very respectable. Good numbers with the benching, too. I also noticed some static holds with the BB. Is that for the obliques, grip or a combination of both?

Thanks, I am guessing 4 lbs or so is muscle. Mostly on my legs back and back. That is wear my muscle tends to go.

Thanks, I jumped into the high reps squats in the past couple months. Tons of fun. I am thinking of going for a 20 rep squat at some point.

Static holds are for all of the above. I can really feel them all over.

My benching is OK, but not that great compared to my other lifts. I don't care at all though. I'm happy with it.

Lawl, the kewl thing is, even though guys like you and me aren't natural benchers, we are natural deadlifts and squaters. All of that back muscle goes a long way in the bench lift... so you can't help but improve you bench, not to mention all the damn GH the full body movements produce. :thumb:

Fufu, wish I could be stronger in my back than my chest. My legs however have always been pretty strong, back has always been my weakpoint. I think you are lucky in that aspect.

Today some girl sitting next to me was saying I was eating alot of eggs. It is funny because today I ate less than I usually do. I usually go with 6 hard boiled eggs(2 whole, 4 whites), then a decent sized serving of scrambled eggs. She said "why don't you eat the yolks, that is where all the protein is". I lawled a bit. I was like, "neg neg neg, the white, or "albumen", is where all the protein is. Then she disagreed a bit. I wanted to be like, "lawl, listen bish, I know this shit."

God, I really love that shit. What kind of shape was she in?

A few days ago, I was told that you can't lose fat without doing cardio. :spaz:

Well I am enjoying my Kin classes here at college. In one of them I feel like I am right with the teacher the entire time. The other one takes more of "scientific" approach, boring shit. Talking about the muscle fibers and what happens inside them and around when they contract or whatever. Less physical. Some of it is ok though. Not too hard.

Deadlift, to me, is the best lift to demonstrate brute strength.

In my imagination.

I can't decide between deadlift or squat. I think deadlift shows more functional strength than squats, but squats show human beings moving more weight than any other way possible. It is hard to pick between such great lifts. I love squats now. They are my favorite lift in the gym. Deadlifts are fun too, but squats make me reach inside of my mind. There is something spiritual about hitting 7, struggling with 8, barely getting 9 then finally coming to almost a dead stop on 10 moving the bar up ever so slightly until you finally use the last energy in your entire body lock-out and set the bar down. I have never been religious, but the closest I have felt to spiritual is in the gym on a good leg day.

I hope you guys don't mind me cutting in. I vote for squats. They are far more intense than deadlifts. You can't really just ditch the weight like deads (well you can, but unless you're in a power cage, you're going to break something). Plus, I've found pushing to be more intense than pulling.

I'd choose squats over deadlifts, but deadlifts start from dead weight which is pretty bad ass.

I know what you mean on the leg days. There is definantly a different zone I get into for lower days than upper.

Agreed, squats rape me harder than deads for sure. BUT, for brute strength I go with the deadlift, 1RM wise.
