Fair enough. Yeah, tough to tell how low it is from the pic.

I have gone through every cabinet in my house and have come to a conclusion: there is no candy in my apartment.

It's more easy to kill with a sword than with a gun.

A sword is more frightening than toy-looking gun like glock.

robbing with a sword is a good thing

Yes. Heaviest I've ever front squatted was, I believe, 245lbs.

Its probably better that way... whenever I see candy I start salivating and it takes a lot to not stuff my face.

What do your cheat meals and snacks consist of?

Any healthy candies you can recommend? I heard dark chocolate is actually really good for you. Dark chocolate covered cranberries?

I think the half rack is more dangerous as you can fall backwards and the stopping point is much lower on a fall. My gym has precor half racks and one squat rack and I always opt for the full rack.

I think this post needs special attention. I want to know, too!

well, real dark chocolate is good for you but people rarely eat it. the higher the cacao the better. Hersheys dark is garbage.

For me, blueberries are the closest thing to candy I eat. I love them.

Cheat meals are usually pizza or bacon cheeseburgers (I often crave the sodium).

See below - dark chocolate + fruit is a good snack, IMO.

This. I don't consider Hershey's Dark to be real dark chocolate. I'll sometimes keep some true dark chocolate in the house (like 70%+ cacao) and I'm never tempted to eat the whole bar.

I think fruit is the best option. While I've spoken out against fruit before, if we're talking about a cheat snack, I think it's better than an equivalent calorie/carb value of candy.

Devil's advocate.....point of the belt with that weight? Shouldn't your core be strong enough to handle it?

If I go above 225, I wear a belt. Can I handle it? Probably. But there's no glory in thinking, "dang my core should've been strong enough for that," when you're getting your hernia fixed.

Also, regarding the argument about strengthening the core, I do specific movements for that and they're a LOT less dangerous.

Twenty-one days till the cruise. I think, when possible, I'm going to treat this a lot like contest prep. I say "when possible" because I have a lot of work obligations in the next three weeks that will require travel and/or entertaining.

There's no reason for me to be doing this other than personal goals, but it feels good to push myself again. Will be interesting to see where I wind up.
