Entry #144
I lost 2 lbs. Weighing in at 181 lbs now. Damn. Gonna have to maintain my diet better. Eat eat eat more more more.

Did squats at 275 lbs for 3 reps. Got in an argument with this guy
who was watching me. He told me I should be using a belt when I go that
heavy. I think belts are crutches that should only be used during
competition. If you're going so heavy that you need a belt to maintain
proper form, then it's too heavy for you. He told me I wouldn't be
saying that once I got a hernia, but as long as I do the exercise
right, I'll be fine.

I also bought the Pumping Iron DVD. It's good. I have to say I like
World's Strongest Man competitions better than bodybuilding shows,

My powerlifting routine is almost over. I got good gains off it,
considering I was doing squats at 185 lbs at the start of it. After the
thowdown I'm doing something different. Speaking of the throwdown, it's
in a week.
