Anyone have experiences with the Donnie Thompson bowtie?
I did Day 1 tonight. Pretty nice little stretch.
Rack = fine
Ego = damaged
Nice. I couldn’t do the shin box on day 1 without helper hand and cramping. Day 5 today and I can do it without help. Making nice progress quickly.
I have both the casual and formal. Never use them. I think they work pretty decently but I just never thing to actually put them on.
Interesting video, I have my thoughts but not invested enough to spew venom. Nice perspective from Noriega who is only a MIT grad
Andy Huang’s gf(Kimmy Johnson) makes me feel pathetic
gonna unfollow that bitch
i know this feeling. i have gotten used to seeing people much smaller than me, much stronger than me. lya bavoil a french lifter makes me embarassed.
63kg with a 230 deadlift and she's a babe. it's really something.
Jessica Buettner is another one
this is the info i come here for. she actually benches less than me* so I can retain some shred of my male ego.
*based on the last single she posted
This is somewhat embarrassing question but any advice with how to deal with nausea when going heavy on squats / deadlifts?
Is it brought on any other time? Do you eat before? If so, how close to lifting?
Did you just start up again after some time off? I always get this if I take more than 2 weeks off.
Not usually any other time (even pretty intense cardio doesn’t bring it on). I’m a first thing in the morning lifter because of my schedule (so haven’t eaten anything just water / coffee) - starting at 5.30am-ish normally so not sure if that has anything to do with it.
Not started off after time off necessarily but have been going heavier / harder than normal on squat / deadlift so that’s probably the main cause. It’s just annoying because it definitely has an effect on the intensity of the rest of the workout when you’re nauseated
I could maybe bench or OHP before work. Squat or DL, fuck no unless it’s not very intense. I need to psych myself up all day for hard DL/squat sessions. Maybe I’m just a bitch
its interesting how different folks approach lifting heavy. i do better when i don’t think about it at all. some days i wont even look at my top set number until i’ve gotta load the plates for it. ill have a general idea obviously. i like morning workouts and have been steady until a week off work messed up my sleep motivation.
for Aurelius i sometimes get nausea, burps, and lightheaded if i lift in the evening. only during dead and squats days. meals close to my training seem to make it worse, especially fatty stuff. im not sure how to avoid it but playing with my diet helped. sounds like you work out on an empty stomach, so im not sure what to offer help wise.
Any time expecting a 9ish or more RPE, doesn’t scare me but just know I need to get on point and life some times makes it difficult
Scaled a bit back today till I get used to new diet. 520 x 1 trap bar, then 1x3 at 475 with breath belt, then 5x3 at 405 no belt with :90 at most rest between. Was easy but glutes were hammered.
5:30am'er checking in here, as well.
My daily routine is only caffeine (via pill), water and creatine before working out, so no calories. I'll get my food (brazil nuts, banana/dates, and protein shake) right after.
HOWEVER - if I'm going heavy on dead or squat, I'll usually eat some carbs before working out. Either a banana or a few dates. I find it helps that 'empty stomach nausea' feeling I'd get otherwise.
I'll give that a try before the next squat / deadlift day, thanks for the heads up. Went relatively hard with chest day this morning and had 0 nausea so I think it's all basically down to the heavy compound lift days.
I basically started the 5.30am wakeup / lift thing more to just see if I had the willpower to do it (I was always the guy hitting the snooze), and it became a habit. With 3 kids and working from home (like everyone else during pandemic) it got too stressful trying to find an hour during the day and the feeling of having already lifted / showered by the time work starts is great.
I’d say trying to get in some food would help. Preferably some fruit like a banana would give you energy and take away that empty stomach feeling like bigjrock mentioned
I'm not sure if it helps, but I also take casein protein right before bed. I know it's a slower digesting protein, but not sure if it's helping me by the time 5:30am rolls around.
New to the thread, so forgive me if this has been discussed, but is anyone in here doing some type of trt therapy? I got bloodwork done about 2 mos. ago and found out I had abnormally low testosterone. Started pumping it in my ass about 6 weeks ago. Anyone in here that's been through the process? How long before you typically notice changes (energy, libido, ability to focus, body changes, etc.)? Thanks
From my understanding, it depends on the ester of the test you use. The longer half life will take longer to get into your blood. I’d also guess it depends on how low you were, how much you were given, etc.
I'm taking 200 mL of testosterone cypionate once a week. I was at 100 and I'm only 36. To be fair, I did a cycle of test years ago and winstrol before as well.
Looking to get a hex bar to alleviate some stress on my back during deadlifts. hensleya or anyone else who has one, can I get away with the $125 Cap version?
I’d get the mega hex version.
Link we can use to help you?
I'm down 50 pounds from my peak, but I've got probably 5-10 pounds in belly fat that just won't go away. I lift 4-5 times a week and eat well. Is there a way I can get rid of this belly fat without starving myself? I'm not looking for a miracle pill to do all the work for me, just a supplement to aid with weight loss/fat burn/muscle growth.
Lift, eat, sleep for years on end. It’s not sexy, but it’s how it’s going to work. Just keep eating well and it’ll fade
had 1+ for 375 on squat today, got 4 reps. ive never done more than 375 at any point.
Got a message from a shipping company saying there’s a problem delivering my order. After paying $200 for shipping, them and rogue better fix that shit and it show up at my front door.
Slipped off the icy porch yesterday when putting my son on the bus - landed directly on my back from 3 steps up.
Pretty sure the only reason I'm fine is all those deadlifts / pull-ups #Lift
Amazon added a documentary on the Highland games called The Heavies to my playlist. I thought it was new stuff, but then saw chunky Matt Vincent featured. anyways, if like me you watch everything strength sport related you will enjoy it.
Question on squats. I’ve been going through linear progression as a novice last year or so. Up to 275 doing 3x5. At this weight, I’m able to get through my reps, but it feels like after I bottom out, my butt gets going up first ahead of the rest of my upper body, like there’s a slight disconnect. I’m pretty sure I’m keeping my spine neutral. Not sure this makes sense from how I’m describing it, but wanted to make sure it was ok and not something I need to guard against.
Lady just worded her message in a way that pissed me off(probably my fault). They were just scheduling the delivery. First time with calibrated plates, excited
Did a few swings with new 125# KB. First thought, it’s kinda heavy
It’s not *wrong* in that it’s super dangerous.
it’s wrong in that fact that it’s inefficient as hell. I’d have to see a video to tell you why it’s happening because it could be anything from how you set your back to your brace to your cadence to infinity.
main thing don’t worry about getting hurt. Focus on treating your entire stomach and lower back like a can of soda and you can’t to fill that bitch up in a complete circle and hold it for the entire rep. Then drive your traps into the bar on the way out of the hole. That’s probably a good start to fixing it
Sent you a PM with a video, if that’s ok. Took a few attempts to get the video to embed but think I got it. I’d love your feedback when you have a chance.
Absolutely that’s ok.
Actually, if anyone wants me to take a look at a video in my PMs I have no problem doing that and going over things with you if you want. I’d be happy to help any way I can.
Need some opinions on my routine. I’ve been doing linear progression alternating between the following workouts:
-weighted chin-ups 3x5
-Overhead Press 3x5
I’m working out 3x/week. Lately, it’s getting really tough to get through my deadlifts, as I’m pretty tired after hitting squats hard. Should I change it up and go lighter on squats on my DL day? Like a 3x8? Deload the 3x5? Skip squats all together that day?
Any advice is greatly appreciated!
i have sent capstone videos before and i'll fucking do it again.
We still talking about lifting?
Oh something lifted up alright
This is what I would do. Something like 3x8 @60%. Gets volume in, but doesn’t tax you too much for deads
my gym posting vids of guy in knee wraps doing half reps on leg press. smh i hate it there sometimes.
