    adding that to the weekly rotation for sure... my lower back is feeling great! I also did 10 shrugs with each rep... My shoulders are feeling great! Started light with one 45lb on each side, and completed a full pyramid topping at 65lbs. Gotta get my form right over the next few weeks, then I'll start upping weight.

    you want a cookie?





    I applaud you for wiping the sand out of your vagina and pulling but it's time to stop being a girl and put more weight on the bar. Unless you are sub 120lbs you should be able to handle a good bit more.

    No cookies, too many carbs. I will take a hard boiled egg though. How much weight do you recommend then?

    Probably as high as you can go without losing your lumbar curve.

    you'll probably be able to handle a good deal more weight anyway over the next month or so since you're just starting to do them. DL newbie gains are nice

    I do all my weights this way.

    Say your max is 100lbs, you can only do it once.

    I would start at 80 and do 12, then go to 85 and do 10, then 90 and do 8. After that, 85 and as many as I can up to 10, and 80 as many as I can do up to 12. I top at 90% of my max usually, and it's working for me :dunno:

    if u can get up to 90 for 8 after all that, then 100 isnt your 1RM..also, "as many as i can do up to 10.." that doesnt make sense.

    that guy in your AV scares me.

    Aside from that, I was just trying to get the concept across.

    I just got to 3X405 without my straps on DL. I probably looked like a monster to all the old people and highschool kids at my suburban YMCA.

    I worry about my lower back, which is why I'm starting very low.

    I probably can, but my goal right now isn't to gain size it's to shed weight... everything I'm doing right now has a cardio bias. if/when I hit ~185lbs I'll start ramping up weight to start really building muscle.. right now it's just a way to keep the metabolism going longer.
