    My gripe with it is it seems to want to cut carbs fairly quickly. Especially on rest days. I just got to where I couldn’t handle the low carb rest days. Going forward I’m using their principles but not as big of a variance from training days to rest days

    Gunners I'm considering going back to LifeTime and making use of their swimming pool. Is there a program I should try out to work on stuff. My conditioning is terrible and my ass ain't running anywhere.

    What's your swimming level? I don't find much joy in pool swimming these days but I like going hard for at most a 100(prefer 50s and 25s) with good rest periods. Still burning calories and not beating up your body just doing 100 laps straight or whatever. Plus it's boring as fuck.

    Preferred cardio for me is a rower and the crossfit bike thing I have, love the rower but bike is easier on CNS. Go hard for a minute then walk around or whatever(I have a sanddune hensleya recommended that I'll just do steps on). Do a set every 5 minutes and if you do say 30 minutes, really only 6 hard minutes and the rest is pretty easy and easily burning 350-400 calories.

    Find that the best way to get conditioning while not wanting to kill yourself.

    Level? Is a Stone in water a level?

    I just need to get my conditioning up some. And if I'm going to be at lifetime I might as well. I hate treadmills and bikes. They're just miserable and I won't commit to them. My form is probably a disaster though so I don't know what to do.

    You should start swimming if you’re going to lifetime. I was a lifeguard in HS. AMA.

    Just start out doing like 10-15 single laps with like 20 seconds rest in between and build yourself up. Watch videos on stroke technique and how to breath.

    I started swimming a few years ago and could hardly make it down 1 length without needing a break. Watched a few basic YouTube vids on how to breath and basic technique and got way better, to the point I could swim 750-1000 yards without a break. My form isn’t perfect, but it’s a pretty easy skill to develop. It isn’t like you are racing and it has to be the most efficient stroke ever. I even did a sprint Triathlon and swam 750 in open water.

    I loved it and it felt amazing afterwords. Your body is sore, but still mobile and flexible. Sauna and hot tub after a half hour swim and I felt like a million bucks. They make underwater headphones so I would just listen to music. Don’t let Gunner discourage you. I felt way better when I was swimming, as it felt like active recovery as well. And this coming from someone who didn’t own goggles and took swimming lessons as a kid. Pacing was important for me. Just like you wouldn’t sprint the whole time for a jog, go out slow and your body will adjust.

    I couldn’t recommend swimming more for someone who lifts a lot.

    Hopefully these Zercher squats I just started a few weeks ago are getting me stronger because they're certainly beating up my arms. 2 cuts and forearm bruises so far. That's with elbow sleeves too.

    I do not envy you doing shit at 5 am.

    Have had 3 really strong sessions in a row and convinced it's the Kodiak cakes pancakes I'm eating for breakfast now. Presses are moving as well as they ever have, should get some new PRs soon.

    Anyone have a good video/advice for leg drive on bench, I can get a tiny arc and barely anything from my legs. Just not really sure how to setup.

    Don’t push up through your legs, push back. Think like you’re scooting back in a chair.

    Create tension before you unrack the bar and use your legs to keep you back on your traps and to stay tight. Does that make sense?

    Watched some video on Daniella Melo where she said she was 220 pounds at 5'6 iirc before she started lifting. Bet she got tons of shit from dickheads in hs, now she's a badass.

    This block we’re doing a 6-2-0 pin press variation. Top single then 5 heavy doubles. I thought I was going to hate them, but.....I actually kind of like them. Really helps staying tight and in position

    HIIT classes are standard burpees, running, jumping jacks, etc.

    My strengths training is mainly circuit training. Warm up on rower.. then rounds of things like trx straps, upright dumbbell rows, release pushups, lawnmower pulls, sit up variations, 1 of the three strength days is legs. Squats, overhead lunges, leg presses, etc.

    I’m not in incredible shape, but I’m in good shape. Play a lot of tennis, did CrossFit for a like full year last year and then lots of boot camps year before that.

    I just can’t do pull ups. Every time I try on about the 5th or 6th one my shoulder pops and then it’s fucked for like a month.

    Work out with my brother a lot who has autism. My working deadlift set today was a 2x3 then amrap at 430 and was gonna have that as his top single(his max) before a lower set. He followed my lead on every warmup set so instead of telling him to just go for a single at 430, just shut my mouth to see if he'd follow my lead and he hit his max for a triple. Failed 440 after(probably worn out). Wanna get him into special Olympics weightlifting and think he'd do quite well. He's got the hex bar down good but barbell movements need a lot of work, as do mine tbh.

    This is push ups for me, which sucks because they're such a good exercise. Every time I put that much weight on my right big toe, it hurts a lot, and steadily gets worse the more I do.

    On a related note, anyone have some more suggestions for calorie-burning, circuit training type exercises? Right now I'm doing a lot of jacks, as many burpees as I can, and overhead press squats.

    I did a 5 mile run with 55 burpees today. Burned 800 plus calories right at an hour.

    Do 10 burpees run-half mile track.
    Do 9 burpees run half mile track
    The 8 then run
    Then 7 then run

    Until you do 10 laps that way. It’s a good workout
