I'm a software engineer.

I started training with weights seriously about three years ago when my coworkers got me into CrossFit. Before that I'd been seriously into yoga.

I am by no means an expert but I am continually educating myself on fitness, and training myself. My ideal physique is strong and "functional". I want it all: strength, power, speed, and endurance. The only sport I play is tennis.

BW: 180lbs Bodyfat: ~13-14%

Current best lifts as of Dec. 2013(in pounds):

345 back squat (ass to grass)
405 deadlift
145 shoulder press
145 overhead squat
225 squat clean
14 strict pullups

comment Why do deadlifts make my obliques sore?
Grats on the PR! I just hit one today. And yes I am going to be sore everywhere tomorrow. I don't know what specifically about the deadlift works obliques.

comment How do I do a proper situp?
A GHD, or "Glute Ham Developer" is a bench that allows you to anchor your feet and cantilever your body horizontally. Here's a vide of a guy using a such a machine to do a GHD situp. youtube.com/watch?v=pMS2dU0FuPk

comment Can I cycle or run with shoulder niggles?
You most likely have trigger point in your supraspinatus on the side with the messed up shoulder. I've fixed several biker's shoulder issues by massaging those trigger points.

comment How do I do a proper situp?
Agree. These exercises do major work on the abdominals: front squats, pullups (with stabilized body), front lever, toes to bar, knees to elbow, GHD benchpress, GHD situps, jerks, and overhead squats. The abs should be worked isometrically.

comment Can I gain weight in a healthy way without any strength training?
This is just wrong information. If you don't train then the only kind of weight you can gain is fat.

That's amusing. The best, and most important, answer that I've made on this site is the only one that's been downvoted. Why?
