I've not (yet) developed that Imaginary Lat Syndrome but I do notice that shoulder rotation exercises and now walking around I am at least brushing some extra stuff now. It's all your fault Rmtt for telling me about those straps. Last night I did my sets @ 12 with an extra plate above what I ever tried without them

LOL.....Your back is infinitely more stronger than your grip...and I have done plenty of grip work.

But I'm not ashamed to admit I break the straps out for any Dead-lifts or Rack-Pulls that are 4 plates or higher. Or when doing weighted pull-ups.

With the straps, I can focus on pulling "through" my elbows if that makes any sense.

Last night I amused myself because I was able to lift my pinkies like I was having a nice drink

Is it strange when the guy on the rack next to you just starts giggling in the middle of a set :

Same here...but I've always been a glutton for punishment.

I remember years ago thinking that if I wasn't nauseated after a leg workout....I wasn't going hard enough.

Times have changed though.....and I now realize there's much more to it than that.

Haha, i feel that. If my legs don't feel like jello I don't think I hit them hard enough. If that is the case I'll usually just hit the stairs until I can barely walk!

Back and triceps this morning. Finished up with a couple mile run. Abs felt very tight throughout, little uncomfortable. Think it was because I was helping some guys on the floor stock some weld strip yesterday. 100lbs a roll and I must've moved 50+ of them lol.

Made it to the gym last night, arms/chest/back and some cardio . added a little weight on each lift felt good . If I can stay strong through the weekend and not have any cheats when it comes to food I think I can break below 240 on my Weds morning weigh in. Weekdays are easy to stay on track between my commute, and work hours. The weekend is the tougher part with all the free time , I'm gonna push through though as the results are worth pushing through!

Last night I just felt SOOO GOOD at the end of my workout, sitting in the cajuzzi. Not the warm water, the muscle pump/endorphins flooding the brain. I've done something every day for a week straight, and have first soccer of the season tonight!!!
