Nice work man! Really grinding out those squats. Hey man, on the cleans, really focus on your hips, I'm not sure if you've ever wrestling, but the motion of hipping someone is quite similar to the clean. If you can get them involved in it, you'll really be able to jack the weight up and see a lot of power behind the move.

I heartily accept the motto, "That government is best which governs least"; and I should like to see it acted up to more rapidly and systematically.

Yeah, those squats were intense. Probably one of the most intense squatting sessions I've ever put myself through, my legs were shredded after it.

Thanks for the clean advice. I was wondering why it was so damn hard to strictly clean it up. I mean, it's not tough powercleaning or hang cleaning but a strict clean and press is tough for me. Will try to take that advice and work with it.

When I first started, my coach really emphasized using your hips, but also changing levels (he was my wrestling coach) in order to create more power behind the move. If you have access to kettlebells those are great for cleans/anaerobic conditioning.

Was really short on time. Had a long day of classes at school then had to work an hour after school so it's been a busy day. Still found time to go straight to the gym after working for six hours. This is actually my first time being home all day since I departed my house at 6:45 this morning. Been a bitch of a day.

Skipping class tomorrow as I'm getting a new car (Hyundai Sonata), finally worked up enough money for it. Probably shouldn't be buying one seeing as I'm going to have so much tuition fees to pay back my university but ****, you only live once.

Chest session was pretty strong considering I haven't done almost anything upper body related in 4 days with the exception of those light clean and presses yesterday.

Tomorrow will be deadlifts, upper back, skullcrushers, push press, and DB rows.

Did some heavy ATG squats with some heavy deadlifts as well before I started the chest session...

I've had better chest workouts but I did bi's and tri's yesterday so I wasn't expecting that much out of it. Good workout, nonetheless. Back workout tomorrow hopefully.

Still been lifting, just been too lazy and busy to update this but I'm still at it.

Yesterday was a brutal day.. Destroyed my legs. 18 sets of squats total (Back squat, V Squat, Hack Squat) + 2 sets of walking lunges + 2 sets of angled leg presses = exhausted quads. Well worth it though, definitely finally seeing some growth in these stubborn quadriceps. I didn't record the lifts because I had classes followed by work and then went up to the gym at 9 PM. It's been tough finding time but I still manage to workout everyday.

Delts & Traps today. I will be back with results by 6:30 central time.

Yesterday: Shoulders + 10 minutes of Eliptical Machine + 13 minutes on Treadmill

Tonight: Back (Rows, Lat Pulldowns, Deadlifts) + 15 minutes of Stairmaster + 6 minutes of Eliptical Machine

324 calories burnt tonight..

I'm satisfied. Really starting to get leaner. Take it one day at a time. Not losing any strength, still actually gaining despite losing weight. I don't know if I'm really losing weight, just gaining muscle and losing fat. Still at 181 lbs.

Apologies for not getting numbers up. I've just been so damn lazy.

Thanks, bro. Time to start powering up some heavier squats. I think I finally got the size because of the volume, definitely going to be looking to max out soon when I'm all rested.

Keep that shit up man, squat so hard your nose bleeds. Thats one of my goals. Shit man I never realized you were 181, pretty strong for your size. Good work.
