    A little update on my progress. I finally started eating enough and my strength improved.

    Butt wink is where your butt tilts back, or your low back tucks under, at the bottom of the squat. I think it has to do with weak hip control and front hip tightness.

    I had to take a step back. I'm still having trouble eating enough, psychologically, I guess. I've been really tired and increasing weight every workout just wasn't working because I was more worn out...

    Terrible day. I'm on week 3 of Starting Strength. After two weeks of great gains, I got this hair-brained idea to go low-carb again (after 8 months of low thyroid and low testosterone, didn't learn...

    Half-assed P90X2 X2Core and did a little bit of Scott Herman's no weight contraction/flex routine. It was my day off, but I wanted to get the blood flowing.

    I don't really have a need to alter the program, and in fact, I should probably take it a little slower on the squat and deadlift given my inexperience and Scheuermann's Kyphosis. I'm only two weeks...

    1) I have a real problem with dogma and affinity for individualization, so I'm just trying to feel out a way to make the program work for me in the way I want. 2) I do have a digital copy of the book.

    Well, I guess contrary to what I may have let on, I wouldn't be using 1RM as a "measure" of my strength as much as a tool to increase my weight quicker. I've added 70 lbs to my deadlift in a week and...

    Can someone explain 1RM to me? From what little I've read, you can take your 5-rep weight, plug it into an online calculator, and find the weight you should only be able to do 1 rep max on. If you're...

    Correlation not causation.

    I know someone that died of a heart attack while shoveling snow in their driveway. They did it every winter. I guess chronic snow shoveling is bad for you.

    I love this video...found it back in November. One caveat: she also did some experimental medical stuff, like electric stimulation. So it wasn't entirely diet. That's a bit misleading.
