btw half a gallon down already.

EDIT: stomach is starting to rumble. Damnit.

As far as cost effectiveness... milk is an excellent source to hit your daily cal/protein intake... not to mention calcium.

Kills my stomach, though.

getting much better with it now. My farts were almost non existent today and I already drank 1/2 gallon. About 6 shaker cups full of milk is a gallon so I'm measuring it that way because I have gallons at home and at work and don't feel like carrying a gallon back and forth. So I just figure 6 shaker cups is perfect, and much easier than dealing with transport. I did just take a massive rock hard sh1t though. I was pushing and pushing and it wouldn't come out lol. After a few minutes and a very red face it was released.

After month 1

weight
161-171

Squat 70-150
Bench 55-115
Deadlift 85-190
Overhead Press 55-82.5
Power Clean 95-120

Squat,press, power clean are all today's projected numbers. Also remember I started very light so month two will be a better indication of overall strength progress.

Here's my fitocracy post showing warmups too

Workout A
Barbell Squat:
1 lb x 20 reps 1lb means just body weight air squats. They won't allow me to enter 0
45 lb x 10 reps
95 lb x 5 reps
115 lb x 5 reps
135 lb x 5 reps
155 lb x 5 reps
155 lb x 5 reps
155 lb x 5 reps
This is getting heavy. My legs are pretty weak so I'm hoping I don't stall soon

Barbell Bench Press:
45 lb x 20 reps
85 lb x 10 reps
95 lb x 5 reps
120 lb x 5 reps
120 lb x 5 reps
120 lb x 5 reps
Still pretty easy
Barbell Deadlift:
135 lb x 5 reps
175 lb x 5 reps
195 lb x 3 reps
205 lb x 5 reps
this is getting very heavy. I started doing the reverse hand grip so I have no problems holding the bar. I may need to reduce the amount I add each session to5-10lbs instead of 15

def start going up 10 lbs if youre trying to stay on that program. 15 is a lot dude. especially when you get into heavier weights.

I have 3 pieces of advice:

Protect Your Spine. Never forget that the lift isn't over until the weight is back on the ground. When you get tired you have a tendency to arch your spine as you lower the weight back to the ground. Very dangerous. You also have this really bad habit of twisting your neck and looking all over the place as you lower the weight back to the ground. KEEP YOUR SPINE, NECK, AND HEAD STRAIGHT throughout the lift.

Try to focus on dropping and catching the weight evenly at your waist. Have you noticed that you heavily favor your right side? You roll the weight off your right shoulder first and catch it with your right arm first at the bottom. In one of your video still shots you can clearly see how uneven your drop is. That is a pulled back muscle waiting to happen. You WILL hurt yourself if you try that with big weight. Try to break the habit now. It's mostly a psychological thing. Right handed people generally feel more confident supporting heavy weight with their right side.

Last piece of advice is remember to lock your abs and keep them locked throughout the lift. I notice on some of your side views that your torso buckles as you lower the weight from your shoulders. Could be because the weight is too heavy, could be because your abs aren't locked. Power cleaning is all about core strength. Your abs are the conduit through which power is relayed from your legs to the weight at your shoulders. Keeping your abs rigid will help make better use of the power your legs generate. Keeping your abs tight should also improve your form and help protect your spine. When I fail at a powerclean it's usually because I forgot to lock my abs.

Side rant:
IMO, power cleaning is very dangerous. Not a beginner exercise at all. The potential for long term injury is very high. Your whole body should have some pre-training and be ready to work. Taking it slow and getting it right is way more important than slinging big weight. Be careful!

Thanks, I should probably delete those videos because I feel like I do them much better now. I'll try to take some video tonight when I power clean.

i agree to an extent. i was a beginner when i started powercleaning. but we also did a lot more lower back strengthening lifts, and i had a great coach. everyone gets hurt, its inevitable. one time last year i literally had to walk hunched over almost 90 degrees for a good 2 1/2 hours. went to the doctor and got it rubbed out and i was fine a couple days later.


like i was saying, we did a lot of goodmorning, trx hinge rows, ect to strengthen our backs. if you are worried about hurting your back, id reccommend doing front squats instead of back squats
