also, i definitely still can't do hang cleans as fast as you do. i need to get the weight up, catch it AND secure it before i let it back down again. i think i'd hit myself in the face if i went that fast

like rippetoe says for overhead press... try it. You'll only hit yourself in the face once

I go wider so it's faster and less fatigue on my legs. I'm trying to move fast with these, not get a leg workout. What you're doing isn't wrong, it's just not idea for a times workout that is designed for you to move fast.

Lol, it's not that bad. I live in a pretty decent sized town of about 12k. Big place for me though.

No TV because i see cable as a big waste of money and time (plus we have cable at work that shows me how useless TV is now days), and the only thing on regular TV worthwhile is the packer game, which i usually go out to watch if i have time.

No computer anymore because my cell phone does everything i need and when i have a computer i can't sleep because I'll stumble all night, lol.

You have to have the right mindset. As cliche as it sounds, the right mind is literally everything. You can have all the strength in the world, and a poor mindset and get nothing out of your workouts.


Recently, after officially swearing into the military and getting ready for basic and beyond, my workouts have improved SIGNIFICANTLY. When I'm in the gym I don't give a fvck about who is around me staring at me, what weight anyone else is putting up, what I did before the gym or what I will do after the gym, all I do is tunnel vision on what I'm doing and move weight. You just have to convince yourself that you're an animal and going to crush it in whatever you ask your body to do. When you have that mindset you will see results, feel better, look better, and be overall more healthy. Then you apply those principles to your life outside the gym and watch everything fall into place.


I read a quote on here a while back in this thread that I loved, it read "When I am not training, my enemy is."

could switch out enemy for buddy too, I'm competitive with a couple friends who are dedicated, and when I'm missing the gym or not eating big they are gaining on me

Thats the thing, we all have different schedules and can't workout with eachother... so I'm all alone too But I know I'll hear it the next time I see them, which is somewhat motivating at least.

I really miss having a spot there the entire time, I always get a rep or two extra with the mental aspect of a "safety" net.

And I also benchmark myself here to, I don't want everyone else having amazing progress and I've done nothing lol would be worst feeling

I wish we lived closer. I'd have a membership at your strength and conditioning gym and be a full timer. You've motivated me a lot by that page / workouts etc.

I like to hear that man. Although I have no formal certifications I can't believe people don't come here for free. I've had probably 20 or so different people come by but many people come once or twice and are done lol.

Same. I've got one buddy thats pretty dedicated, but he's got different goals, and so our workouts differ most of the time. Still, it's nice to at least have a spotter when needed, or some motivation to show him up
