    Look for Mark Rippetoe's videos on youtube on squats, and read starting strength if you haven't already.

    Squats are very complicated, it took me 6 months to learn them correctly.
    I am now kicking myself in the ass which I have not been using properly to do squats for not viewing Rippetoe's videos earlier. They are very helpful; he went into great detail explaining each lift. I can't really budget for his book right now but that will go on my wish list. I'm eager to hit the gym today to work on proper stance.

    This was my workout today - clearing of a patch of forest:



    Average hearbeat was 123, peak was 151. I "worked out" for about 60 minutes. I used a chainsaw to cut down the threes and an axe to de-twig the trees.
    Sometimes you need to be told the truth in order to be able to see it.

    Proper form proper form proper form! I can finally say that all my lifts today were in the most proper form that they have been so far I spent the morning watching some Rippetoe videos where he goes into great detail about proper form for each of the big lifts.

    12 minute walk to gym

    Inverted rows (4 x F)
    Leg lifts (3 x 12)
    Squat 5 x 5 (165 lbs)
    Bench press 5 x 5 (125 - 130 - 130 - 130 - 135)
    Deadlift 1 x 5 (240 lbs)

    12 minute walk back from gym

    My body feels very worked after it but it feels so good.

    Uh, if you respect Rippetoe, why are you recommending illegally downloading his material?

    I'm not the one hosting it and I'm not responsible for it. I'm just letting him know it's out there.

    Cerebelum, the biggest thing I noticed about your squat was that your knees kept tracking over your toes. I'm still working on my squat!

    Vick, did you mean attempting a BBS-style workout again? I did realize the one thing I don't like about it is that it doesn't really make me any more POWERFUL... It builds strength, but it doesn't make me much better at say, jump squats (which I really enjoy being able to do.)

    Today...

    Was planning on lifting some heavy things, but I really didn't feel up to it. But I love the feeling of doing some sort of physical activity in the morning, so I ran up and down my street, took detours through grassy lawns, did walking lunges until I couldn't see from all the sweat running down my face, and then finished it all off with some quick and thrilling hill sprints. FUN!!!

    Does anybody else feel like they just need to RUN everywhere now? I often will just start running through shopping centers, parking lots, etc. because walking just feels so... slow. Given, there's a time and a place for walking, but most of the time I find myself sprinting quite frequently. The best part is that I'm never winded afterward. ;-)

    I do find myself finding reasons to sprint
    Calm the f**k down.
