    I would loooooooove to do a max squat of 170 pounds, bench 90 pounds, and power clean of 75 pounds while maintaining my weight at 117 or less.
    A unassisted pull up would be a dream

    Push-up progress has been slow since I gained entry into the gym at work. Been doing presses and curls, chin-ups and pull-ups, and dips more than push-ups. But I just dropped and did 30 good push-ups in one set, so I haven't lost strength. I think I'll just simply start doing more push-ups! Plain and simple. Maybe a simple month-long plan like I see on facebook all the time would do.

    What is the concenes with pistol squats, does parallel count or do I need to go lower?

    I think going lower is actually more a function of your hip flexor strength on the opposite leg (I know this is true for myselft anyhow). Really, its whatever you decide it is though

    1 set of 39 push-ups. Number is rising quickly now that I'm sticking to it!

    something i really want to be able to do is a pistol squat, at least one with each leg. i do assisted pistols every week, but i'm just having trouble with the balance part of it while i'm going down. i'm confident i'll be able to do it though

    I set a goal at the first of the year to do over a thousand miles this year on my treadmill and as of may first i was at 360 miles for the year !!! Not bad for a guy who couldnt walk through the grocery store for 20 mins a couple years ago !! I have Ddd and have suffered for a few years but after finding primal and my inner motivation my life has been changed forever !! Awesome thread !!
    My mother always told me " your just big boned "

    My shoulders now touch the bar for 3 reps. Only two out of the three or four sets I do on pullup days, but it's something, especially after several months going backward and forward (setbacks, weeks off...etc).
    Looking forward to doing a full one.
