Re: Malucci is a FPOS!

Nice pic, though from that angle it looks more Lion Tamer than it does Boston Crab. Yeah, I don't have the pain when squatting, it was just running yesterday that started it, and then after the run (actually about 5-10 minutes into the run) it dissipated and was way more manageable. But yeah, it's not going to stop me from anything, unless it gets worse. I'm assuming with more running it will get way better and hopefully cease to exist completely.

On another note, I think I need to do more stretching both prior and post-workout, what stretches should I be doing? Is there a link or a website I should look at for this stuff?

Re: Malucci is a FPOS!

Yeah, back in the day. I remember the only place you really felt pain was like on one of your shin bones, but the pain was pretty bad. Though I never had an expert like Jeff Jarrett get me in one.

Re: Malucci is a FPOS!

Couldn't hurt I suppose.

Anyway, I have a question about pullups/chinups...right now I don't think that I could do either, so I've been doing the assisted ones on a machine. I use the normal pull up grip, and I have also used the neutral grip in the middle. Is it okay to use a chin up grip or are the handles on the machine too wide for a chinup grip and only use a pull up one or neutral one? Hopefully soon I'll be doing regular pull ups and not the female ones that I've been doing. No offense ladies.

Re: Malucci is a FPOS!

Squat 3x5 185 Definitely my best squats ever, realized why my knee has been bothering me because of the way I dropped down on my squat and eliminated that motion, so now my glutes, hamstrings, quads, and hips are doing all the work and I'm really feeling it in them. Also, this was the lowest I've ever gone to, all the way to the basement. Really excited about this.

Press 3x5 85 These also are starting to feel better

Swiss ball crunches 3x25

Assisted chinups 3x100 5x115 6x115

Squat 3x5 205

Press 3x5 92.5...so I'm an idiot and I had a five pound weight on my right side with a 2.5 on my left side, and didn't realize it until the end of my set, I was wondering why it felt so heavy on the right side. Retarded.

Assisted pull ups 2x4 100 1x3 100

How do I use resistance bands for pull ups and chin ups?

Re: Malucci is a FPOS!

And is that really going to be better for me to get to doing regular pull ups and chin ups than the machine?

Re: Malucci is a FPOS!

Weighed in today

239.9 lbs. (though I was wearing a hoodie and jeans which I wasn't last time) so it's up 1lb.

Body fat was 27.4% down from 32.9% last month

Need to diet better, was going well for the first two weeks, then got worse. Also more cardio this month. I think I can lose way more body fat this month and that's what I plan on doing.

Re: Malucci is a FPOS!

I went to squat today, and my knee has been bothering me, but has been less bad the last couple days, so I went to squat and there was still pain when I was just warming up with the bar, so I looked at my knee and there was some light bruising all around the painful area, so I decided not to squat today. Has anyone else experienced anything like this? What did you do? Should I take some time off of squatting and see if this goes away? Any answers or experiences are much appreciated.

Bench 3x5 185

Deadlift 1x5 235

Had no knee issues deadlifting.

Re: Malucci is a FPOS!

Ran for 40 minutes today, back was hardly an issue, and stretched it out afterwards.

I feel like I was running faster than normal for most of the time, and my legs didn't have the normal pains that I feel like I get when running. Maybe that means my legs are a lot stronger than they used to be.

Re: Malucci is a FPOS!

Thanks for the good words

I squatted again today, I did my worksets at a lighter weight than normal due to the layoff and not being sure about my knee. It popped nearly every rep, but I did feel strong and I felt my form was pretty good. Above average.

3x5 205

Press 3x5 95

Re: Malucci is a FPOS!

Squats 3x5 225

Bench 2x5 195 1x3 195, did two other reps after the three but they were assisted by a spotter so I'm not going to count them, though the 4th one was almost good.

Deadlifts 1x3 245...I pussed out. I probably could have gotten 2 more, but my grip was slipping, and I just pussed out. No good excuse. I need to get some videos up, I'm pretty sure my deadlifts were poopy as hell.

Ran for 40 minutes. Some back pain early on but it dissipated and I toughed it out.

Re: Malucci is a FPOS!

Squats 3x5 235 (this is definitely a record for reps with a squat I'm sure. I have done a 1rm at more in my life, but back then I definitely didn't go as deep as I do now, if I even went deep at all)

Press 3x5 105

1x4 assisted PULLups

4x25 swiss ball crunches

1x3 assisted pullups

I couldn't do my pullups for **** today, and it's because my shoulders were ****ing dying after presses today, I thought I would feel better if I did my crunches and then got to my pullups later but no. Also, maybe it's because I haven't been doing pullups and have been doing chinups instead. I don't know.

All in all despite the failure of the pullups, I feel really good. I feel like I can definitely do more weight squatting next week. The presses were way more difficult to finish than the squats were, so much so that I almost failed my last rep, thus I'll probably stay at that weight next week.
