    That makes a difference for me as well. Afternoon/Evening seems to be the perfect time to work out. Mornings are rough, but it fits my schedule.

    For thos that read this blog whats a good tool to use to accuratly test your body fat. I seem to hover around 15%-17%. But in all honest i dont belive i carry that much. i use one of those ones that you sends a pulse through you body.. but i dont feel like its acurate for people who have a athletic muscular build like myself. It has a athletic setting but it seems that even though my muscles are getting bigger. my waist hasnt gotten any bigger since high school. But when ever i adjust my weight on this thing it says my body fat is higher. Even though im 95% sure most of that weight is muscle..
    Calipers. But the problem with them is that you have to practice to get the technique right and consistent. These were free with one of my orders: [url]http://www.bodybuilding.com/store/bbcom/metacalbodyfatcaliper.html[/url]
    Cheapest of the cheap, but I'm sure they are functional. Haven't even taken them out of the packaging yet. LOL

    Success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day in and day out.
    -Robert Collier


    Success is not measured in money and fame. Its measured in effort in grit. If you set a goal such as to bench 225lbs and you reach that goal. That is something that nobody can take from you. That my friend is success. So set your goals and in time you to can be successful.

    Todays ended week 6. I feel ok not bad. Lifted 245 lbs on Deadlifts today was very hard. I feel like im gonna have to deload soon and see. But im pretty happy being thats a lift Im new at. I also think i need to increase my calorie intake or at least take my protein daily. i think that will help with recovery.

    Decided to take a video of me squatting as i work on form. I have come a long way but still can do a few things better.



    Squat 215lbs 5x5
    Overhead Press 90 5x5
    Deadlifts 245 1x5

    Not bad on the form there actually. My only critique is that you need to get below parallel.

    Nice work man! Not sure what the before pics looked like, but you've definitely got some muscle growth. Why are you looking so damn serious in those pics though? Like you're about to go hulk on someone. LOL

    Here is some good reading for you guys !!!


    Starting Strength

    Strength: Why and How

    Physical strength is the most important thing in life. This is true whether we want it to be
    or not. As humanity has developed throughout history, physical strength has become less critical
    to our daily existence, but no less important to our lives. Our strength, more than any other thing
    we possess, still determines the quality and the quantity of our time here in these bodies. Whereas
    previously our physical strength determined how much food we ate and how warm and dry we
    stayed, it now merely determines how well we function in these new surroundings we have crafted
    for ourselves as our culture has accumulated. But we are still animals - our physical existence is, in
    the final analysis, the only one that actually matters. A weak man is not as happy as that same man
    would be if he were strong. This reality is offensive to some people who would like the intellectual
    or spiritual to take precedence. It is instructive to see what happens to these very people as their
    squat strength goes up.

    As the nature of our culture has changed, our relationship with physical activity has
    changed along with it. We previously were physically strong as a function of our continued
    existence in a simple physical world. We were adapted to this existence well, since we had no other
    choice. Those whose strength was adequate to the task of staying alive continued doing so. This
    shaped our basic physiology, and that of all our vertebrate associates on the bushy little tree of life.
    It remains with us today. The relatively recent innovation known as the Division of Labor is not
    so remote that our genetic composition has had time to adapt again. Since most of us now have
    been freed from the necessity of personally obtaining our subsistence, physical activity is regarded
    as optional. Indeed it is, from the standpoint of immediate necessity, but the reality of millions of
    years of adaptation to a ruggedly physical existence will not just go away because desks were
    invented.

    Like it or not, we remain the possessors of potentially strong muscle, bone, sinew, and
    nerve, and these hard-won commodities demand our attention. They were too long in the making
    to just be ignored, and we do so at our peril. They are the very components of our existence, the
    quality of which now depends on our conscious, directed effort at giving them the stimulus they
    need to stay in the condition that is normal to them. Exercise is that stimulus.

    Over and above any considerations of performance for sports, exercise is the stimulus that
    returns our bodies to the conditions for which they were designed. Humans are not physically
    normal in the absence of hard physical effort. Exercise is not a thing we do to fix a problem - it is
    a thing we must do anyway, a thing without which there will always be problems. Exercise is the
    thing we must do to replicate the conditions under which our physiology was — and still is -
    adapted, the conditions under which we are physically normal. In other words, exercise is
    substitute cave-man activity, the thing we need to make our bodies, and in fact our minds, normal in
    the 21st century. And merely normal, for most worthwhile humans, is not good enough.

    An athlete's decision to begin a strength training program may be motivated by a desire to
    join a team sport that requires it, or it might be for more personal reasons. Many individuals feel
    that their strength is inadequate, or could be improved beyond what it is, without the carrot of
    team membership. It is for those people that find themselves in this position that this book is
    intended.
