First off, fantastic work doing it one go! Second, here is some constructive feedback on form (imho):
- Look down at the ground when you do your push-ups. It will help you get a little lower for full ROM.
- Squats did need to be a bit lower, and the slight curvature in the lower back was missing when it gets deep enough. However, I noticed the shaking at the end so be careful here.

I'm no expert, I'm just sayin'. Don't hurt me.

Good job!

It's nice to see someone "swimming" to those last pullups. I do the same thing with my legs! I seem to feel better with my feet out in front. :D

No don't worry, you're right. :P

I was trying to show off a bit so my form did suffer hehe.. really wanted to do it in one go. My push-ups are generally better - BUT my squats do need a bit of work. Thanks for the feedback.

There's a bunch of videos of some flexibility work and techniques for squats on youtube. A guy from crossfit posted them. I am going to start back after my rest week with lunges instead of squats until I get the flexibility to do squats correctly. FYI

Edit: here's the first one - http://youtube.com/watch?v=Rq8CWv8UPAI

Here's my progress for this month.. I made a video for one of simplefit's contests:

http://www.simplefit.org/phpbb/viewtopi ... =6391#6391

I'd like to here what you guys think of my overall progress. I think this video shows me with some decent mass gains. note that my video editing squished the height a bit, so I think I look a bit fatter than I actually am haha.

My weight is hovering around 200 lbs and I think I'm at about 17% body fat.

Awesome workout Fizzle, just what I needed to see today to get a bit of inspiration happening.

And yep you have definitely made some great mass gains! Looking back over your older pics the difference is huge, even with a bit of video squishyness going on.

Congratulations!
