trying a new exercise tomorrow
Guy practicing his golf swing in the mirror?
First day with the adipowers went "ok"
They felt a little awkward so I guess it will take a little time to get used to them.
How anyone in the gym refrained from kicking one of those weights from under his feet is beyond me.
Haven't been officially cleared to squat yet, but I couldn't resist this morning. Kept it super light with 3x10 of 135lb box squats, but it still felt good to at least have a barbell on my back again.
looks like a solid lead arm, no chicken wing..might need to work on that hip rotation.
Make sure to use questionable form and grunt real loud for the people that aren't watching you.
The guy in the mirror is trying to hit an invisible golf ball at him.
I think that is pretty typical. The first time I wore my romaleos I was expecting all these magical things to happen, I actually didn't like them at first. After a few times wearing them though I got used to them and now I love them.
might go as deep as quarter squats today
Didn't realize there was a locked out users thread so was sitting in purgatory for a few days.
heavens no that sounds just painful. if that shows up later in this program I will be afraid
60 working reps of squats with minimal rest? The fuck is that?
Slowly making my way back after a month hiatus. My squats went to shit and I have to refrain from breaking a mirror every time. From 315x10 down to 315x2-4
I have a legit injury (and my bastard username because tigerSdb2 seems to have been deleted) but I'm still going/lifting "strong". I'm gonna put off surgery until my hand is forced. A tear is a tear. Provided I don't do any other damage if my shoulder starts coming out here and there (absolutely a posibility, I know ), the stronger I am going into surgery, the easier things will go after.
That being said, benched today. Nothing crazy 5x5 at 230 (roughly 70ish%) with close grip after. The close grip gives me a lot more problems but I just did it to a 1-board today and that seemed to take away almost all of the pain.
On an unrelated note, my appetite has been absolutely horrendous and I've dropped all the way down to about 170. Not sure if dying or just being a bitch. Will need to get this rectified ASAP.
weight lifting not weightlifting
Don't be that bro, bro
Started lifting on Feb 2nd and haven't skipped a M-W-F lift since starting. Feels good and have started noticing real results. So, yeah.
Still working my way up with SS and I think I'm going to de-load for the first time today. The weight feels like it's going to crush me to death and I know my form has been getting iffy (read 'garbage'). For a while I was just working through it and able to actually correct it while still adding weight but it's just too heavy to do that now plus I'm stuck on Bench, PC and OHP. I think I'll drop 20%, concentrate on great form, and start building back slowly 5# at a time.
You guys have any tips on eating cleaner, i.e. More protein? Mostly concerned at lunch. Breakfast usually consists of eggs (breakfast burrito and a little bit of Mexican cheese) with some oatmeal, and dinner is some type of chicken and steamed veggies. I'll also do some type of ground beef (80/20) and make a burger patty on the grill. Lunch I'll make a sandwich with some yogurt and fruit. Don't really have the time to do more than 3 meals a day, but this diet plan has gotten me from 182lbs to hovering around 170 but still moving up in weight at the gym. I want to add a HIIT on Tuesday-Thursday to cut a little more weight, but am afraid I may start getting weaker with less calories? Halp, I'm green as fuck with this shit.
Weightlifting is a sport.
whey is the lowest calorie way to up your protein count considerably
Not sure what the deal is with my shoulder, I did 315x2 pause bench with a slingshot the other day but doing regular TnG with 225 feels awkward, like I can't tuck my right elbow the way I want to and I'm not getting any load on my lats.
Might just give up on bench for now and give it more time to heal. Could do floor press and DB bench in the meantime
Yea, and make sure you buy decent powder. Someone had a link but some of those companies really lie about how much protein their powder has. Thanks Oren Hatch
I think I'm getting back in there today, my back didn't feel like complete ass this morning. I'm sure i'll break it in half though.
Hello at the show.
I'm down about 20 lbs on my cut. I'm averaging 1-2 lb per week. The upside is obvious, but the down side is I'm getting weaker on my daily workouts. I overate this weekend (wife's bday) and had a fantastic workout Sunday so that tells me a lot (went to 2300/day up from 1950/day).
For the first time I'm finally tracking intake so well I can often trace poor performances directly to what I eat the day of and the day before. Also, I switched to a high bar squat with a slightly wider stance for around 6 weeks (upper back was feeling off so the bar felt weird in my usual setup). I'm glad I tried it but I'm back to low bar and my upper body alignment is so much more comfortable.
Squat 5x5-245 after a recent reset (down from 280 on full calories but whatever)
DL 5x1-300 (I would benefit from hiring a good coach here. I'm form limited an it shows.)
Team romaleos for wide feet. Size them just like your chucks as long as you leave no room in your chucks. I wear 10 in Nike and NB but 9 in chucks. I got a 9.5 in my romaleos but should have gone 9.
Thanks for taking my call
What's your overall opinion of the slingshot? Worth it?
Down 20 lbs since the new year. On week 2 of this reverse diet out and still losing weight. I still feel like eating everything in sight.
I eat a lot of non-fat plain Greek yogurt which has 24g of protein and 9g of carb per cup.
Try using a leaner ground beef for those burgers.
I've had it for a few months, it's fun to use but not sure if it actually helps. It does seem good to use when you're a little banged up though as it helps stability
Still not sure how best to use it in my programming
I like to sometimes mix a leaner cut with a little fattier cut to get some of that flavor without all the
is there any functional difference between using a lever dip station and just using a bench?
ive only done it on the machine so i dont take up any precious free benches
Don't use a two bench set up. You're shoulders will probably thank you. End range internal rotation plus end range extension at the shoulder is, generally speaking, a bad combination. They're also harder to load so there's that, too
came across this "compendium to overcoming weak points" on reddit. thought it might be useful for some of yall.
What powders do you use/recommend? If anyone has the link to better information on protein powders I would appreciate it.
Optimum nutrition whey. Reasonably priced and you get what is advertised.
A couple friends of mine just bought Xtreme Formulations, the makers of Ultra Peptide. Both of them are professional strongmen and that's the only type of protein they use, so I guess it made sense for them to buy the company. It's supposedly some of the best stuff on the market and pretty damn tasty, too.
Here is the discussion
I buy what SCSA suggested.
Personally don't like doing it on bench because it messess
Plus, throwing chains on your shoulders looks really cool.
What weak points?
Read this, didn't take Creatine yesterday. Probably won't take it again.
I haven't taken creatine in probably 3 years.
bye to your gains bro
I'm an all natty lifter anyway, I only pound nattys before lifting.
Played basketball last night for the first time in a couple weeks. Good god I'm sore. Leg day tomorrow is going to be rough.
My nuts are safe.
Hello to my robust b-sack?
