2018-03-07 23:54:49 UTC  

don't have any

2018-03-07 23:55:17 UTC  

Ah yeah, get some chalk it’s cheap. If gym doesn’t allow powder then use liquid

2018-03-07 23:56:20 UTC  

home gym 👌

2018-03-07 23:57:32 UTC  

It’s game changer

2018-03-08 20:03:43 UTC  

I’m transitioning to more oly lifts. Anyone have experience competing in Olympic weightlifting?

2018-03-08 20:11:50 UTC  

I compete with the barbell every time I snatch.

2018-03-08 20:12:28 UTC  

I've no experience with competition but I'm somewhat competent with the lifts

2018-03-08 20:29:09 UTC  

My sister competes in Olympic weightlifting

2018-03-08 20:29:19 UTC  

We train together often

2018-03-08 21:43:56 UTC  

I don't have experience competing but I'd definitely say finding a coach is a requirement

2018-03-08 22:41:53 UTC  

My friend is a competitive one but he’s not /our guy/ yet

2018-03-08 22:42:26 UTC  

I want to clean 140kilo

2018-03-10 17:12:13 UTC  

When you lift at a crossfit gym and it's the open.

2018-03-10 17:12:31 UTC  

Got to lift outside as if I'm the idiot.

@Fox yeah CrossFit boxes aren't very accommodating to people not doing their particular course. I have one right next door but they only have 1 hour 2x a day of "open gym" so instead I travel 30 min each way to get to a good barbell gym.

2018-03-11 06:17:30 UTC  

True. I love being apart of the box. I catch a lot of shit for not CrossFiting but I am also know everyone and make great friends doing so.

2018-03-13 02:56:02 UTC  

That first post-conference workout is painful. No more off days!

2018-03-13 04:16:34 UTC  

Haha, if/when we get an IE compound I assume there will be tons of squat racks

2018-03-13 14:25:20 UTC  

All members must preform back squats before continuing with any other exercise.

2018-03-13 17:10:50 UTC  

405 back squat mandatory

2018-03-13 17:45:32 UTC  

All reps are to he counted as "One, Mr. Rippetoe. Two, Mr. Rippetoe."

The dudes in the back talking about my lift as I’m doing it threw me off some. I think I had three more

2018-03-13 22:59:50 UTC  

Dude do you have any knee pain? Looked like they were going way past your toes.

2018-03-13 23:02:33 UTC  

going past your toes ain't the problem, its putting all the pressure through them that is. One can lead to the other tho

2018-03-13 23:03:32 UTC  

Or so I think

2018-03-14 04:46:20 UTC  

My knees feel great tbh. I run all the time too. I normally wear knee sleeves but forgot them back in my dorm in Texas. I’ve always done high bar pause squats like that and no pain. I’m routinely over 2-2.5x bodyweight no issues

2018-03-14 04:48:05 UTC  

Also I’m in weightlifting shoes that have a .75” heel so my ankle flexion angle is probably comparable to those in flat shoes who don’t go over toes

2018-03-14 04:49:38 UTC  

I’ll draw up some fbd of it tomorrow to see what’s good and use my measurements just cause

2018-03-14 12:30:22 UTC

2018-03-16 01:31:26 UTC  

as long as heels dont come up, going past your toes is A okay

2018-03-17 15:12:14 UTC  

I’ve started taking more rest days. My sleep quality has improved and my bulk is finally working

2018-03-17 15:12:27 UTC  

Rest and recovery is super important fam

2018-03-21 00:28:32 UTC  

Nice dude. That is when your muscles grow!

2018-03-22 06:01:43 UTC  

Hit my first 60kg snatch today it felt amazing

2018-03-22 11:52:47 UTC  

Nice work!
