    So I ordered a RepOne velocity device in April. They keep pushing back my delivery date (which I understand. It’s a 3 man shop and COVID has everything fucked). They just reposted someone talking about finally getting their shipment notification. They were order 1273.

    I’m 1486 :tebow:

    Seasonal allergies suck. Feel amazing for months now like 6 things hurt. I’ll be fine, just annoying and need a mini-vent.

    Hit 405 for 8 on squat. I thought it was going to be an all out set but I could have done 11-12. Huge PR for me

    His gram post looked plenty deep, watched a YouTube with his lifts yesterday and way different.

    Either way, absolutely fucking stupid how strong he is

    Is the belt drive a big enough upgrade over the traditional air bike to pay about $75 more?

    This is probably a hot take, but I’d take an assault bike over a standard gym stationary bike.

    Ok so I’m trying to finalize my flooring. I think I’m going rubber floors over horse stall mats. I’m just laying them on tile no adhesive. Am I better going tiles or a rubber roll? Everything seems to contradict itself from what I read.

    If anyone is looking for an exercise that will make them feel like an unathletic piece of shit, may I suggest the floor press. Getting up from that just really humbled you quick

    Did 8 trap bar singles of 500 today. First was RPE of 5 or 6, 8th was my neighbors likely hearing me grunt. Great considering my AC went out and sleep was terrible

    Andy Huang goes pinky under/thump over when squatting. Is that a normal thing? Seems like it would be miserable at my puny weights let alone 800+ pounds

    Pinky under helps with shoulder rotation. He’s able to get his elbow closer to the bar that way. You’ll see a lot of the bigger guys doing it.

    Like a low bar squat without the shoulder strain. Fantastic. Also great for front squats and good mornings.

    Wondering if anyone can help me out with a suggested workout along the lines of what I’m looking to do.

    so over the last year I lost about 75 pounds, down to about 6’ 180 with a little muscle, but I’m not super cut. Took about 5 years off from the gym and signed up again last week.

    my current plan isn’t to be super sophisticated with my workouts. I want to do a full , general upper body workout twice a week, legs and abs two days a week, and fit in cardio wherever I can in between. Not trying to really bulk a lot, more looking to get just some form of skinny ripped and add a little bit of muscle.

    Anyone have any suggested workouts that are somewhere along those lines?

    First off, congrats on the weight loss. That’s great.
    As for the workout, I’d look to start the workout with a compound lift: squat, leg press, hack squat, front squat, bench, overhead press, deadlift, row. Use those as your main lift because that will be your best bang for your buck in terms of muscle, conditioning, etc. after that, put in the machine, single arm/leg type work. So for example:
    Leg Day:
    Front Squat - 3 sets of 8 reps
    Leg press - 3 sets of 10-12 reps
    Leg extension - 3 sets of 15
    Leg curls - 3 sets of 15
    Finish with body weight lunges

    Upper Body (press workout):
    Bench - 3 sets of 6
    incline dumbbell bench - 3 sets of 8-10 reps
    Chest flys - 3 sets of 12-15
    Triceps - 3 sets of 10-15
    Side lateral raise - 3 sets of 15-20

    In general, every workout just try to add either weight, a set, or reps. That’s the basic principle of progressive overload. Every 5-6 weeks deload some weight you’re doing then start over and do it again.

    Want Simple? Do this for 6-12 months. You'll get stronger, add lean muscle

    Monday (A Workout)
    Squat 5x5
    Bench 5x5
    Rows 5x5
    Curls 3x10

    Wed (B Workout)
    Squat 5x5
    Overhead Press5x5
    Deadlifts5x5
    Dips 3x failure, eventually add weight

    Friday
    Repeat A, add 5# per lift
    Pull ups 3x failure, eventually add weight

    Sun/Monday
    Repeat B, add 5# per lift

    continue repeating. I'm a believer in 5x5 basic linear progression...especially for people just starting out.

    Down 15lbs and 19.5inches in 5 weeks. Its a six week program that was $100. Now they want $150 per month for full membership so unfortunately I'm going to have to keep going on my own at a different place. Feel great though.

    I also am back (in the gym). Starting over again. Thighs already blasted. Pumping out 4 reps of 175 on the bench like it's nothing only for the fifth rep to feel like somebody stepped on the bar. Glad to be back though.
