whoa.
I notice on the first 315 fail the bar pn the floor behind you. It was out of the way when you blacked out. That all could have been tragic
Did you do anything to make sure you were good to go again?

That would have been tragic. I didn't even realize that till you brought it up. Good Lord....

Umm...no, basically I blacked out because I choked myself while unracking and then after I failed I just sat down, did some breathing, chilled for 15 minutes, drank some water and my protein shake and then I went back - except when I went in for Attempt #3 I felt really weak but I just had to get it because I know me: this would have haunted me for a long long time.

I'm so glad you commented...I've been wondering why nobody writes in my log. Maybe I should go and write in someone else's log.

Thank you :)

Thank you :)
There could be a lot of reasons

- you clearly have solid coaching and are not here primarily to learn (newbs get more folkd like me trying to give them pointers)
- you pretty much cover it with video and writing in your log and you discussion thread (generally people will not duplicate info in both, but hey, that's your option :wink:
- several logs get little comment, but rest assured they are read
- often "your" lifts will inspire questions in the general section so we'll illicit more comments, but maybe it wont be attributed to you.
- we're all busy
- it's hard to think of anything aside from "dang, you're strong" and we're still building confidence in your ideas. For example if you were Eric Cressey? you might get more traffic. I'd ask you more about how to improve my mobility to do Front Squats (I can't keep my elbows elevated) because I'd really like to get good at that exercise. But I dont ask you because right now, I'm likely unwilling to put in the effort and don't want you asking me how it's going and I have to say "ehh.. I'm pudding out, haven't been doing it".
- What sorts of comments would you be expecting?

I know we're glad to have you. A quality poster.

Hey Wolf, I'd write in your log if, I had something to contribute! Noobs like me have a long way to go!

BUT...I'll mention that since seeing your front squats (the ones without the blackouts!) and hearing about other members doing them - I've started incorporating them as accessories. Your vids are great - I do admit to watching them before I drive home from work, so I'm pumped to get straight into my training when I walk in the door :cheers:

and one more big reason
this place is a bit cliquish.
And as with any "community" sometimes it takes awhile to break in. Some folks here have me on ignore. You have likely not offendd anyone, but there's a little "lets see if he's going to be around, no need to waste time building e-lationships for a driveby poster"

why am I still awake?

maybe my lack of sleep is holding me back

Ahhh I understand. I hopefully things will change in time.
Oscar_Actuary wrote: - What sorts of comments would you be expecting?
Well, nothing in particular...not even training related. Just general stuff. I dunno..I wasn't expecting anything actually..just some activity. Certainly not the thump on the back kinda thing though..just general questions like what I do, etc etc. It may not even be training related - regular chitter-chatter hahaha

I noticed the cliquish-ness already...which is why my comments are always so brief.

I understand the "wait and watch" approach..makes sense and thats fine: I'm not going anywhere.

I don't need y'all contributing to thump me on my back for every lift or anything...I just mean dropping by, saying hi...lol...it sounds silly, I know.

I'm glad my videos help you out..

That blackout was insane and we have a trick up our sleeves to keep it from happening. I can't be making breathing mistakes at my level. It could have been really costly.

I used to have Front Squats as accessories too..but then I shifted once I realized how much fun it is.

I'm not a bodybuilder like most of you guys - another reason why I probably attract such little traffic (I hate using that word because it sounds like I'm a product) and at the same time I'm not a powerlifter or a strongman. I'm just a strength trainee. Simple :)
