Some more progress pics, I feel my progress hasn't been so great lately with all the traveling/partying I've been doing on the weekends lately, but I have nothing planned for July as of now and I plan on getting more serious with my cardio now that I am running again.

You're doing well workout wise, I see progress. But I think you need to work on food and life style. Which is the problem for most people.

My my eating habits are good, I eat pretty clean, by lifestyle I assume you mean drinking, that's not going to stop. I've seen some results over the past month and a half with my "lifestyle" and it's been a pretty crazy few weeks.

I will be upping the cardio though as my ankle is feeling pretty good. Strength is staying pretty steady with some minor gains, looking to up my DLs and squats now that the ankle is feeling good.

drinking delays results, but is necessary at least once a week for me. I'd rather drink than have a six pack, 100% at least at this time in my life. But hopefully I can find a balance for both, looks like you are on your way as well.

I agree, I'm not looking to become a competitive body builder, I'm just looking to get in better shape. I drink, probably too much, but I enjoy it and its a big part of my social life. Sure a few years ago it was easier to work off the effects but what are you going to do.

By the way this is my new post workout "shake".

Drinking and cardio go hand-in-hand to improve your progress. I was not doing any cardio before, once I started I got much leaner. My problem is the opposite of yours, it's hard for me to gain weight even when I eat 3500cal a day.

Ankle injuries hinder progress big time, I sprained my ankle the other day playing soccer and have been wearing a brace. Hopefully you're doing some ankle strengthening exercises to help it recover faster.

My ankle is fully healed, now it's just time to get the strength in it back, the injury plus the fact that I neglected legs for so long has made getting where I want to be pretty tough.

I am currently racing my self to 315 with bench and squats, I know I'll get there with squats first but it is kind of pathetic that I can bench as much as I can squat right now. I've stopped trying to go heavier with squats and am focussing in on doing good sets with good form at 225.

Reading the first part of your sentence "Racing to 315" my thought was... Weight is arbitrary, make sure you are getting solid full ROM reps in and the weight should come... then you said you were already doing that so great

I was at 260 x 5 to parallel, which is acceptable ROM... but now I'm realizing going as deep as possible takes a lot of stress off the knees + further develops neglected muscles and prevents over development of quads compared to hamstrings, adductors etc.

I'm back down to 225 x 5 but going really low, so looks like I can watch your progress too now.

Yeah I did 3 sets of 5x225 all good form to parallel last squat day, was a big improvement over my previous leg days. Starting to run, as little of it as I have been doing, has really helped re develop the muscles in my lower leg. It's amazing what a month in a boot will do to you.

Doing the same with DLs, getting in quality sets of 315 instead of chasing bigger numbers, like you said the numbers will come eventually.

really?
hmm
my knees are bad ... i have had bad joints ever since i was a kid ... a lot of popping and creaking of joints all over, especially the knees
so going down to parallel during squat is hard enough for me
but you're saying going lower than parallel actually feels better?

a lot of things point to going deeper = better than parallel, because the "bottom" portion of the rep where you stop the majority of the weight gets held by the hips versus when parallel the knees taking the brunt of the force.

I know personally I felt the effects immediately, having done parallel for so long
