As of early 2013, we are still in the process of rebooting unto the new platform

If you want to keep track of the relaunch you can:

  1. Like us on Facebook
  2. Follow us on Twitter
  3. Send me (Kris) an e-mail and let me know that you'd like to join the new site when it is ready.

Once we are ready to relaunch, we will start spreading the word. Until then, expect silence to mean we are heads down coding. :) The forum is still open for active members, but don't expect a lot of activity here since meets are currently on hold.

WEEK 1 --- DAY 2
Deadlift:
1x9 @ 460lbs

BTN Pull-ups:
5x5 @ BW

Shrugs:
5x4 @ 315lbs

BB Rows:
5x3 @ 225lbs

Here is where I made the change.  Just doing the deadlift with singles.  May also add in speed dead not sure yet.  I just don't see the point of doing 6x6 with the dead, seems like too many sets and reps.  We'll see how this goes.

Yeah I am finding too that doing deads for more than 6 reps takes an awfull lot out of me, plus the form blows toward the end anyways.

I agree with Max. It is a good decision to handle the DL as singles. This lets you focus on form much better. After rep 4 or 5 I just want to lift that weight no matter what in my experience.
Strong lifting!

Thanks, guys.  I started with a little bit higher percentage on the deadlift, since I'm only doing the singes.  I think originally the program has you doing 80% of 1rm working up to 6x6 over 4 or 5 weeks.  I'm starting at 83% and adding about 2% to the bar each week while dropping a rep.

That's the hard part  Cheesy  If I can get my butt out of bed in the mornings, early enough before I have to head out to school and get the kids ready, I plan on doing some cardio on my off days.  Right now though I've just been pretty strict with my diet. Sticking with eggs, tuna, chicken, a few vegetables, 1% milk (I really like milk) and some protein shakes here and there.  I'm pretty carb sensitive so I try to keep those as low as possible, except maybe on my training days.

I really want to make an effort to get my weight down below 200lbs, so we'll see.
