    SAS.. Need I say more.
    I too have narrowed my bench grip probably 3 inches as well. Sure it makes the movement a bit harder and more ROM, but my shoulders don't scream at me at the bottom anymore.

    Do any of you guys have joist mounted pull up bars?

    I have an extra TV I'm putting in the garage and I'm going to set up a small area to do my P90X in the garage when one car is pulled out (I'm not wanting to do Kenpo X or Plyo in my living room lol). I want to get a pull up bar to put in there but need something to mount to the joists that give me some head room. My garage is completely finished and insulated so I need room to lift all the way up and not put my head through the drywall lol.

    Oh and I'm 5'9'', husband 6'0'' and I really don't like jumping up to get to the bar. Ideally I'd like to mount it closer to the floor where I can reach it on my tip toes. I'm not seeing much that allows for a low hanging option. Ceilings are 8 ft tall.

    Maybe you welders can help me you here lol.

    I’m 5’ 9 and always jump for pull ups. The other option would be to get a small stool to step up on and off of and just bend your knees during the pull up so it’s not in the way. They are cheap. I have a few around the house for my 5’ 1 wife to reach the top shelves

    If its my pull up bar it will be set up just fo me :)

    Jumping hurts my rotator cuff. I like to walk up and pull. Plus I can use bands if needed. Its hard to jump into bands... and more so hard to get out of them to jump down lol.

    I think you said you had plyo boxes. Did you make yours?

    I do not have any. The powerlifting gym I go to has some Rogue ones I believe.

    I remember someone making some in here, maybe @uhplifted ?

    It was I who made a box indeed. It’s currently being used as storage station as I haven’t put shit away from my bonfire on Saturday but here she is

    I covered the 3 sides I jump on with foam so I don’t bust open my shins

    Making progress! I just finished up 15 minutes on the rower and then I did 2 sets of 10 squats with just the bar and 2 sets of 10 of some 20# bicep curls. Head is feeling good so far.

    Not sure. Woke up pretty sore/stiff this morning from that light workout yesterday. It’ll probably be a few more weeks. Going to keep rowing for about 15 mins a day and doing some more light sets. My head did start hurting a bit yesterday, but that’s ok. My girlfriends best friend is currently going for her PhD and has done all her masters and stuff on concussions and related stuff. She said newer research is showing starting light physical activity earlier is good for concussions. As long as the symptoms stay under a 4/5 out of 10 it’s ok.

    I was pretty hungry after my vacation, though I did eat a million pounds of food and it probably sparked my metabolism for a bit... It calmed down later in the week, but today I feel the same... back to normal. It's normal to be hungry if you're cutting. It's part of the process :)

    Slightly increased intensity on the rower and hopefully an extra 5 minutes and maybe some DB rows and some OH press with just the bar

    True but I’ve just kinda lost motivation. For the past 2-3 months my weight has stayed around 183-185 as I weigh myself daily and I already eat healthy enough where I can still enjoy a snack every now and then but not gain weight or be miserable. I don’t think I have the will power to cut just to do it. Marathon not a race right? Still lift heavy and train hard so hopefully slowly but surely I’ll burn fat and gain muscle.
