Heavy day (04/11/2009)

Snatch session sucked. I widened my stance a little bit just for the sake of variation. And apparently, the very moment I actually started paying attention to my technique, the worst thing happened… Out of all the 10 total repetitions that I did (including the acclimation sets), only 2 of them were a success, and they’re just my warm-up sets.

Anyway…

High-bar back squats (ATG, pause at bottom)
275x4
275x4
275x3
275x2

I’m thinking of taking a week off to max out on front squats…

Dude, you should really stop focusing on strength and do some more bodybuilding oriented movements.

Given your height, weight & lifts, you certainly cannot have any sort of a decent looking physique at 205 lbs & 5’6. I imagine you have a build similar to chicktuna.

Have some respect for yourself, and care about what you look like.

Lol. Yeah, I’m a fat kid. Thanks for the advice.

Wow. I was really just being an ass so you could perhaps realize how silly you sounded in another thread. I was imitating your post in this thread: http://www.T-Nation.com/free_online_forum/sports_body_training_performance_bodybuilding_beginner/critique_this_for_me

[quote]TYPE2B wrote (in ref. thread):
I’m also here to convince people to start being concerned more about their strength instead of their looks. I’m attempting to make the world a more hardcore place to be…

But, uh, whatever. :wink:

No. You’re right, I really am a fat kid. There’s no doubt about it. And I understand if people are mean towards me.

One thing to keep in mind, TROLLING IS IN MY BLOOD! THE ONLY WAY FOR ME TO STOP IS TO EITHER IMPALE ME, OR HAVE A MOD WARN ME OF BANISHMENT.
