    Your car will be fine. We use ours in our outdoor shed and the smell didn’t last long. I’d imagine it would be slightly worse if you’re putting them indoors.

    Big fan of the built in look where the platform is level with the rest of the floor.

    Apparently the hardest part about putting a rack together is getting the 3x3 feet into a 3x3 square

    Herbstrong sent me a 40% off code today because I haven't bought any products in a bit. Great stuff but my joints feel quite good recently.

    Anyways, HSFAM40 is you want to use it

    Nothing worse than a poop showing up, but not fully ready to come out, whilst lifting.

    Focus on technique, tight lats, drive from thr bottom [screams at butt hole hold on for a few seconds]

    So home gym fam... I just realized my garage has a pitch, like all do.

    My bar is probably a half inch lower in the right side. Squatting right now I don't think I can feel the uneven floor, but worry once I get heavier and back to normal.

    Is it worth it to try and level the platform with maybe some 1/4 plywood sheets? It is even possible without planing them down into a wedge?
     
  25. hensleya

    hensleya I Pick Things Up and Put Them Down

    are you measuring end of bar to end of bar? I’d be more concerned with the measurement of your stance. If it’s negligible, I wouldn’t worry about it. Otherwise, yes, planning them is the best way.

    It's weird....the rack is the folding into the wall type so it is foldable on pins. There is a decent slant when it is racked, but then I put the level on the platform itself and it is much less noticeable on the MDF centerpiece. But MDF is perfectly straight. IDK. I'm just going to screw it all together and see if I can tell. If it's some massive issue I'll take it apart and try to put some thin piece of plywood in there and level it

    Don't like big boy at all, wish Haack wasn't associated with him but about that paper.

    Failed a zercher 390 today, first fail I've had in a long time. May need to dial it back a bit and build up strength. Did some beltless RDL later that moved better than it ever has so that was good.

    this makes a little more sense, but the dimensions of these people are still pretty absurd.

    I followed them a good bit and may have been youtube reasons but Pitbull also went like 3/9 at a meet with one of the coaches and quit soon after

    I went to the park on Saturday and did 100 pull ups, 150 pushups and 200 air squats then did sprints. My legs are still sore today even after a 4 mile easy jog yesterday. Gym opens Sept 5th and I can’t fucking wait.

    yup. NJ has been taking their time.

    I also tweaked my knee running a couple months ago so I've had to take it easy on lower body bodyweight stuff. Been getting some good pullup/pushup/shoulder workouts in at home so I think I'll be ok on the upper body movements at least.

    Anyone itt do the macro counting thing?

    I’m on week two and enjoying it, although the first week was a wake up call and pain in the ass with the app. I’ve found it easier to hold myself accountable and it’s something to do besides just lifting as I’ve kind of gotten in a rut or plateau.

    hensleya I Pick Things Up and Put Them Down

    I did it for a long time a few years ago. Got away from it for whatever reason (work, kids, etc...). In doing it for so long, I have a pretty good idea in every day stuff, but I don’t track everything like i used to. I’m thinking of starting it back though since I work from home now and make my own schedule. My last job was tough because it was so inconsistent and often time last minute

    I use RP's app when I need to drop for a meet. Like hensleya said, over time you start to learn your go-to meals and what works vs what doesn't.

    I do. It’s the best way to go imo. Gives you freedom to enjoy things from time to time, but also puts into what you’re actually eating out on paper so to speak.

    My squat is stalling but deadlifts and pressing feel incredible, had a great month. Following the ASC model of mixing opposite BB/DB movements each pressing day with Z press as well.
