    So, you think the walk-off/lift-off helped your squat? To what degree? I practiced with some front squatting today, but doesn't that work your quadricep more than the back squat? I really feel it in my hamstrings and glute when I push the weight up in a back squat. I think I need to work on more hamstring strength, since I've never done any glute-ham raises or deadlifts. I have thick quadricep and glute muscles, but I think I need to bring my hammys up to speed...

    I'm gonna experiment for the next few weeks by not being so merticulous about pre and post workout nutrition. I just read an article on Robb Wolf's site that influenced me. I never really did feel good after eating sweet potatoes... Usually bloated and never seemed to make much of a difference in the gym. My biggest boost in the gym comes from managing my stress, sleeping well and recovering enough. I don't think that one sweet potato after every workout really contributes to any major degree... Similiar thoughts?

    Today I was super pumped to just go and dolly around the gym. :-)

    glute bridge, 165#x3x7 (woops, gotta a little crazy with volume!)
    back squat, 95#x6x3
    one-armed forearm plank, 30sx2
    one-armed plank, 30sx2
    traditional plank, 60sx2
    box jumps, 10x2
    DB rows, 40#x8x2
    + played on the dip/pull-up bar and dabbled with some OH squats. Form is getting prettier everyday!

    heh, I just started adding carbs post-workout, and I believe what it contributing to is to eating enough. I always find it hard to eat just the right amount of food, not too much to avoid getting fat, not to little to prevent muscule growth.

    I started walk-outs/lift-offs when I was stalling around 110 lbs on 5x5 more than 6 months ago. My limit was my shoulders, not my legs. It taught me to keep my back straight under a heavy load, and I am better withs quatting at body weight and slightly above, though I am obviosly nowhere near 1.5 BW sqt. It is a long road to travel.

    Anyways, it was a good workout yetsterday, but by some reason it left me unsatisfied. Kettlebells today, wow, yay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Can't wait!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Bodyweight is always a nice barrier to crack, congratulations! That's where squats really started to feel "heavy" for me.

    Squat 175#x3x5
    OHP 65#x3x5 (my pressing is ridiculously light)
    Power Clean 94#x5x3

    My first 'wow, heavy' was around 95 lbs. But now I can squat 100 lbs ass to grass without a second thought. Whenever I get frustrated with how slow my progress is, I remind myself about that. But, I still wish a pound increase did not mean that 'doable' switches to 'impossible'.

    Actually, I am below average, just very stubborn. I started about 1.5 years ago, had a major interruption, regroupped, and then restarted seriously last July, and since then I just kept grinding at it, deloading-reloading very close to where my linear progression ended on 5x5.

    OHP: 30 lbs --> 65 lbs (the best 5x was 68, but I lost it now by some reason) LP ended: ~58 lbs
    BP: 45 lbs --> 79 lbs LP ended: ~75 lbs
    SQT: 45 lbs --> 130 lbs LP ended: ~115 lbs
    DL: 95 lbs --> 175 lbs LP ended: ~170 lbs
    and I still can't 'get' a BBR properly, so I can't really count the weight there.

    So, yeah, not much increase.
