Back workout; Deadlift progress; September “100 Challenge”; AtLarge sale.
Yesterday’s back workout was another excellent workout! I improved on every exercise over last week. My deadlifts are still not where they were last year when I was bulking, but I’m narrowing the gap every week. I was about 20 pounds heavier than I am now when I hit my deadlift personal record in late 2006, but I have to admit that it irritates me to not be closer to that mark than I presently am. I guess that’s my competitive side; those pointed edges always seem to be peaking through. There’s nothing wrong with that, but I have to resist the urge to pile on more weight than I’m ready for. My rule of thumb is to add 10 pounds each week to deads (as long as I get 3 sets of 6 completed with good form the workout prior).
Man, whey prices (and dairy prices in general) just keep climbing. It’s affecting all of us who purchase protein powder, and it’s certainly affecting the manufactures that produce it. AtLarge Nutrition (along with every other manufacturer of protein powder) is again forced to raise their prices simply to offset the costs of producing their products. Their existing stock is, of course, not affected by this latest price increase. Right now is a very good time to stock up before the prices go up again. Also, they are running a 10% off sale, so this is as good as it gets. Check out the details below.
I’ve opened the September “100 Challenge” for entry. Details are immediately below this update.

AtLarge Nutrition – 10% Off Sale, and a message from AtLarge Nutrition
You may be aware that the price of whey protein worldwide has seen some dramatic increases recently.
Because of this, we are forced to raise the price of Nitrean protein very shortly. We would like to stress that this is due to a large increase in price for raw materials, thus a higher manufacturing cost for us.
We will always strive to keep our prices competitive and to help ease things on everyone, we wanted to give all existing customers a chance to purchase Nitrean at its current price ($42.95) for a limited time, after which we will be raising the price.
So, up until Sunday August 26th 2007, we will be discounting all orders placed by 10%!
If you have been waiting to try some AtLarge Nutrition supplements or simply want to stock up on your current supplement supply – do so now and save 10% on your order!
Simply place your order as normal and when you get to the payment information page, you will see a box labeled “Discount Coupon”. Enter the following coupon code to receive your 10% discount: 10percent
