    I would certainly be open to some "nerve branching" on my end!

    Has anyone on here ever tried to see how they score on the FBI fitness test? Many years ago I trained for it for about 6 months. I think I was able to get to 15 points or something. I had a friend who actually went into the FBI and he was telling us that his goal was full possible points, which is damn impressive. Anyway, check it out. My favorite is how deceptively difficult (I thought) the 300 meter sprint was.

    Haven't seen anything from you fitness enthusiasts lately, so I figured I would update with my current (seasonal) routine. I'm back on the 5x5 "Stronglifts" program, after about 6 months of mainly running with some weight training here and there, about a month and a half into the program and feeling really good. I add "assist" exercises in the form of weighted dips and weighted pull ups, and in just a short time I'm currently on a 20lb dumbbell for the pullups, in addition to the body weight I've also put on, so I know I'm getting stronger, great program for those that like "immediate feedback". Still running to keep my lungs strong, but no distance running at the current moment.

    I lost 35lbs over the past 6 months and hopped back on Starting Strength. Rough being sore from 135lb squats after hitting 405 for a single 6 months ago but I'll be back there soon enough.

    I feel ya on the 135lb squats, I hadn't done anything leg related (other than running) for probably 6 months or more, I couldn't even complete my 5 sets of 5 without cramping up, strength was there, but legs weren't having it.

    I got through my warmup and knew the fun I was in for. Second workout cleared most of it up fortunately. I agreed to hiking a couple of 13ers tomorrow that may kill me.

    Yeah, I was good to go by the second work out, sore as hell, but able to finish, just completed my 190 5x5 today, will be to 205 by next week, then 225 before I know it. Deadlift climbs even quicker, going in 10lb increments.
