I weighed myself with an empty stomach at 172lbs.  Then after I stuffed myself at dinner I weighed 174 lbs.  That is a 5lb increase in 5 days (and 3 workouts)! Must not be muscle and be pretty much all fat, food and water seeing how these workouts haven't been hard yet because its still the start of the program.  I weighed myself on the 6th with an empty stomach and I weighed 172lbs again.

I guess the weight gain is good... but man, I dunno... I like the idea of keeping off the weight I've lost, unless I'm packing on straight muscle.

It sounds really frustrating to be going light and not pushing yourself during work outs. I can't fathom it, really.

... by the by, you lifting tonight? I was thinking about making a trek up to your neck of the woods...

Five rounds for time of:
135 pound Deadlift, 15 reps
135 pound Hang power clean, 12 reps
135 pound Front Squat, 9 reps
135 pound Push Jerk, 6 reps

Possibly, or something heavy? Thinking OHS's, C&J's, or Snatches?
