    It is very good. Good thing they don't count cause need to have it again in the future. We're going to keep working on the transfer. Time will tell.

    Yep, if you eat a snack between 1-3pm they are ghost calories so don't worry about it.
    Too bad I'm usually working 1-3 or I'd get to snack more, lol. It is crazy how many want to transfer though I don't know how serious the 4th one is. He is the head tech and a bit of a favorite of the pharmacist's but also would be the hardest to replace with all that he does and knows. The one is moving for sure and the other is getting the green light as we try to hire, so we're working on it but it's not easy for sure. Though at least 2 of us are transferring cause we have to drive far to get there, so trying to do the other way around so we can have stores closer to where we live.

    I work in HR - don't be afraid - it's literally their job to figure this out and you'll need as much documentation as possible if you have any hope of getting out of there!!
    I've always liked good mornings. I've been doing them on a regular basis for a couple of years now. It's not so much that it's HR just the whole calling anyone in general that is anxiety inducing. But we're working on things in the store so may not need to make that call at this point.

    Holy chit that is an insane workout. My @$$ hurts in sympathy.

    GMs are evil. I can't believe F2F can do 135.... I feel like I'm breaking in half with just the bar. I'll stick with SLDL kthanxbai.
    hehe. Just wait till next deadlift day. Supposed to do 1 rm but more than once cause this program is insane, it's only the second set of deadlfits in the block. I like good mornings. Light or heavy, it's all good.



    Today was squats after work, which would be fine except silly me didn't think about new hair cut and neck exposed when walking in the super hot sun. I burned the back of my neck and I squat high bar. Oww Still managed and it almost helped distract so I wasn't thinking about how heavy I was lifting, maybe. Slow but I'm accepting that I'm just a slow squatter. Also had a guy compliment my sumo deadlift form at the end of the session. Not bad since I taught myself and it's an accessory.


    squat 1x5 @ 115, 1x5 @ 135, 1x4 @ 145, belt 2x3 @ 165, 4x2 @ 195
    low bar pause squats 1x5 @ 115, 1x5 @ 125
    low bar bottom up squat 1x6 @ 45, 1x6 @ 65, 1x6 @ 85
    sumo deadlift 1x8 @ 135, 1x6 @ 165, 3x5 @ 195

    Personally, I find sumo deadlift form hard as heck, and supposedly I'm even built for it, so getting a compliment is great in my book. Major kudos for doing bottoms-up squats. I find those 10x harder than regular ones, but they're SO good for teaching yourself to establish tension. You're killing it strength-wise on this cut, lady. What class are you going to compete in do you think? (Did I miss this?)

    Yeah. I find sumo a bit awkward. I'm already short so it's not like I have to pull the bar that far even with conventional so it's not much of a difference. I plan to compete right now in 132. It was the one I first competed in and I do better in that compared to 148 even though it's still overweight for my height.

    It was crazy last weekend. I need to buy some sunscreen if I'm going to keep walking for hours on the weekend to help with my tdee.

    hehe, I can try. And thanks. This program is a bit crazy on the numbers but fun challenge. I've often done peak cycle attempts on cuts though so have some practice. Seems like I'm perma-cut life. Can only dream of getting to lift and bulk.

    Made it trough heavy deadlift day. On the plus side, was a little worried but for nothing because turned out it was deadlift from box at 100% instead of full deadlift. Still was pretty darn heavy. Lifted later in day so could eat most of my calories beforehand, which included a delicious scoop of ice cream from Salt and Straw. Bought some veggies and such too. Didn't nap but did have some nice time lying on the couch while the cats napped too. Overall, an okay day.

    deadlift to knees - 1x3 @ 135, 1x3 @ 165, 2x3 @ 195, belt 4x3 @ 215
    deadlift from box - 1x4 @ 195, belt 2x3 @ 225, 2x3 @ 255, chalk 3x2 @ 275
    overhead squat - 1x68 @ 45, 2x5 @ 65, 1x5 @ 75
    good morning - 3x8 @ 135
    cardio - 30 minutes on treadmill reading over forums as ipod had low battery

    Do you prefer conventional or sumo? I had switched to sumo before surgery and liked it better than conventional because I felt like my form was better and I didn’t feel it as much in my back. Now that I’m getting back into it, I’ve been trying out more of a squat stance - not quite as wide as sumo but arms still inside the legs. It’s interesting and I’m still playing with the width.

    hehe, I can try. And thanks. This program is a bit crazy on the numbers but fun challenge. I've often done peak cycle attempts on cuts though so have some practice. Seems like I'm perma-cut life. Can only dream of getting to lift and bulk.
    What program are you running again? It does look challenging and I’m trying to decide what program to run when I’m released from PT, and I’d like to add to my list to consider.

    I googled the bottom up squats and I think in incorporate those regardless of program. Seems like they would go a long way towards building explosiveness out of the hole.

    I’m with you on the perma-cut! I always seem to be trying to lose and am never in a position to bulk. I finally decided a few weeks ago that if I’m going to cut I need to suck it up and do it right. I do fine during the week and then screw it up on the weekends, so I’m still working on that (she says as she prepares to go to the local Italian joint for pizza and beer).

    Man, when I'm cutting (now) I'm way too hungry to incorporate anything like ice cream or pizza--those things are so calorie dense and for me so not satiating... I default to the "clean whole food" model, though of course not just chicken and broc****. But like, my big treat right now is watermelon and maybe on some days less than an ounce of dark chocolate. I guess I also just think about how having a sugar-and-fat treat will extend my cutting time that much more and displace healthy calories I could have instead.

    I see you are up to 75lb for overhead squats. Trying to think if I've seen anyone at my gym do that, even the guys. Not sure I have.

    I compete with conventional. I've done the lift much longer and just added sumo on my own as an accessory so haven't gotten it up above 225 yet. As for program, well I'm sort of making it up. I'm using Sheiko numbers from a excel template I found but needed a break from doing bench every single lifting session. So right now I have squats with deadlift accessory, bench, deadlifts with front/overhead squat accessory and a day for push/press plus cleans and snatch as I wanted to learn to do those. Sheiko tends to stick between 60-80 percent of 1rm most of the time. I can pick lifts I want but not adept yet to be picking my own numbers though I'll probably do an actual peak cycle again once I pick a meet.

    Ah, I have days where I don't eat a lot of volume, so have managed ice cream but no pizza right now. I mostly am doing things like veggies and chicken or egg whites but I also get in treats almost every day. It's a very slow cut because of that and had to increase expenditure in hopes to eat more calories while still losing cause 1200 cal sucks so right now averaging 1400. Honestly, I haven't seen anyone do overhead squats. I've seen cleans, jerks, snatch and all kinds of stuff but so far am the only one when I'm there doing overhead. It's a challenge but I like it though will some day be limited by how much I can press to get it overhead.

    Lazy sunday. Stayed in bed until about 11 am and eventually made my way to the gym. Walked there, light lifting some cardio then walked home. I've been chilling on the couch. Should write but already considering going to bed.

    push press - 1x8 @ 45, 1x6 @ 65, 3x5 @ 75
    snatch - 1x6 @ 45, 3x5 @ 55
    clean - 1x8 @ 65, 2x5 and 1x4 @ 75
    rdl/row - 3x5 @ 85 with straps
    30 minutes on treadmill walking


    Back is a little sore today. Might spend some time with the heating pad. Have lighter work week but am negotiating to get 1-2 days at store closer to home.

    Aww thanks. Push press is like overhead or military, just with momentum from legs so can lift a little more. I would some day like to see it increase but haven't gotten far yet. yes, enjoying the no work days and sleeping in cause have no kids or anything. And well, struggle to fall asleep usually means i stay in bed a little longer in the morning.

    I went to one in Studio City but right after they opened the doors, as they open at noon. No line for me but I've heard there are often lines at that location. And yes, light compared to squat and deadlift days, even bench. Nothing at 100lbs yet. ;-)

    Yeah, push press is actually easier than strict OHP for most people because of that leg drive. I do remember my trainer telling me to practice it when I was doing the Oly lifts actually, so good call there Fiction.

    Is there the possibility of massage in your future? If you lived closer I'd trade you one, ugh, so sore all the time. It's worse on a cut, I think.

    How are you finding the treadmill walking? Do you do an incline or just flat?

    Wait, so does a bottom up squat sound as burny as I think?
    Because daaaamn.

    I find conventional to be the more awkward deadlift, I'd rather pull sumo by far. Wish I had a full length bar so I could have my feet where I want without the plates being too close for comfort, lol. Nice numbers, you've been kicking a whole lot of ass! And I give major kudos to anyone who can do snatches, and cleans, those scare the chit outta me!

    Thanks. No massage in my future. Never been a fan of being touched by others so it's not something I consider nor do I have spare money for such cause need shoes and to pay for a meet. I do a bit of an incline when just walking. If I run then I have it more flat. I don't mind treadmill walking but I also have an ipod so listen to music to help getting through it.

    The bottom up squats were a bit awkward at first trying to get in place. Not sure if they are burny though. Guess it depends on how you are built and what you're used to doing for deadlifts. The cleans and snatch aren't so scary at just the bar. *winks*


    And i have a possible meet. Need to see if I can get the time off from work but I could possibly compete very beginning of June. It would accomplish 2 things in 1 because it's near where I grew up in Wyoming. So I can take a vacation home and compete at the same time. Need to buy shoes still but would be a great opportunity. And a personal fun point: 15 years ago I graduated from high school and weighted over 200 back then. Would be a great feeling to go back and squat more than that while weighing 132 or less. Should have my tax return soon so can pay for the meet with that. Just need work to be okay with me taking around 5 days off (I have enough PTO).

    Ohh an (almost) home town competition! That could be fun! I was a scrawny lil sh!+ in high school lol. Every time I go back for a wedding or whatever it shocks me how almost everyone from my class is now very overweight. So you'd definitely be the shock-and-awe of going against the trend!

    Indeed, weddings are good ones too. For my older stepsister's wedding, I was near my heaviest (had just lost some though cause the pants I'd brought were too big and was quite a struggle without a belt) but still well over 200lbs. So, my younger stepsister got married and I weighed 135. Quite the difference and surprised a fair number of people who hadn't seen me during the years between the events. Probably won't see anyone I knew in the short time I'll be over but have seen some in the past when I moved home from college and such in brief passing and the trend is more to have gained than to have lost since our teen years.

    hehehe, Yeah that would be fun and all. Too bad I probably won't see anyone I went to school with but still. And most were actually nice to me except maybe a couple of the jocks. Still, I'll maybe post on facebook that I'll be in the area and might try to at least catch lunch with my best friend from those days but haven't been successful at that yet.


    So far looking good. Head pharmacist said I could put in the request and should get it off. Bad part is right now we are short on hours so I'm working a little less and thus making less money. Have to pay for meet, plane ticket and shoes since haven't replaced the ones that were stolen yet. Maybe I can try an outlet store to see if can find some shoes, or I guess maybe could go with chucks but eh, not sure.

    Anyways, need to post the last couple of lifting sessions. Soreness lasted for a few days in back but it's doing fine. Thighs ended up sore after the sumo deadlift session but nothing too abnormal.

    Do you think you'll ever pull sumo in competition? They say it's better for the leverages many women, especially shorter ones, tend to have. Also... holy CHIT that's a heavy-ass face pull. I do those with like 30, wtf bro.

    It's crazy how much harder bottom-up squats are than regular ones. I'm glad I'm not the only one who needs to go a ton lighter on those comparatively. Great way to learn to attain/maintain tightness and eliminates the stretch reflex... hm, I should start doing these. My MMA friend swears by them.

    At this point probably won't compete sumo since I haven't lifted more than 225 on it while I have 281 max on conventional. I have only done bottom up a couple of times now but it recommended to go lighter when I researched the lift. Good to know some of the purpose for it. ;-)

    Overload is also called a walk out. It's not 20 times. 1 time, standing there and counting to 20. The basic point is to have unrack the heavy weight and get the feel of it that way when trying to get to max on squats it won't feel as heavy.

    Well, sad day or morning after no sleep. I had waited on the meet sign up cause needed to make sure I could put in the request for time off and for pay day. Well, no longer able to sign up. Who would have thought a meet in wyoming would actually reach the max allowed lifters over a month before event. So, not sure when I'll be competing. Gives me more time to save money and buy shoes but still a little sad I won't be able to compete near where I grew up. Probably won't go home beginning of June then, instead save the money for later trips and other things like our search for a new place to live and such.

    And yeah, am on no sleep right now. Pondering going to park for cardio or going to gym. hmmm Options.

    Exactly!


    On the plus side: Can get some of the tattoo sleeve very soon. And I can pick other meets. There are two options right now. Barbell Brigade has one early July. KO Gym, where I did the last meet, has one near the end of July.


    Went to the gym instead of doing cardio at the park. Deadlifts and a little cardio after. Tired during the whole thing but it wasn't too bad and less people at gym though still more than other locations considering it was 6:15 am on a Saturday. I tried the straps for deadlifts and realized I really don't know how to use them for that lift so just abandoned them and lifted without. The bar was the one with a slight curve that rolls more so that didn't help.

    deadlift - 2x4 @ 135, 1x4 @ 165, attempt with straps 195 then with belt 2x3 @ 195, 6x2 @ 225
    overhead squat - 1x8 @ 45, 2x6 @ 65, 1x3 @ 75 (failed as was going to try and do at least 4 reps)
    front squat with straps - 1x8 @ 65, 2x6 @ 75, 1x6 @ 85
    good morning - 3x8 @ 135, 1x6 @ 145
    cable kickbacks - 3x8 @ 40
    treadmill - walk 10 minutes, jog 10 minutes, walk 20 minutes

    Now let's see if I can get some online stuff done and maybe even write. Or take a nap this afternoon. We'll see what happens.
    Gym Max: 225/126/285
    Meet Max: 1st Meet 198/115/248
    2nd Meet 220.5/121/281
    Goals: 235/135/315

    Ohhhh noooooo! I hate that feeling. But at least if you do the July meet making the 132 weight should be easier, right? More time to cut.

    Good for you for admitting to the fail on the OH squats. I sometimes, um, kinda just pretend I was going for the lower rep number and don't mention those, but I will strive to be as honest as you are in the future. Also nice weight on the good mornings. I get scared of tipping over on those, but there you are with (more than?) your bodyweight on there. Dang.

    True, though I'm pretty much there. Weigh-ins right now are 133-134, so pretty close. A quick water cut and I'd make weight.

    Thanks. I feel pretty solid even with using the low bar squat spot for the good mornings. Plus my stomach practically rests on the top of my legs at the bottom. I've never felt like I might tip over but not like it's that far ;-). Kidding. I do them with the rack so at least I know the safeties are there but haven't had to use them yet with the good mornings.

    Oh man sorry to hear the meet registration filled up. July is only a few months away fortunately.

    Good job on deadlifts! When I first started using straps I was doing it backwards and had to watch a youtube vid to figure it out lol. Then I got Versa Grips and was equally confused. I think those came with picture instructions so I eventually got that down.
    Current PRs:
    Bench Press: 195x1
    OHP: 105x4
    Deads: 315x1
    Back Squats: 275x1
