    I make poor decisions. May keep progressing first part but absolutely no reason for RDL singles right after.

    Only things that would mostly have an impact directly pre/post workout is GH and insulin. When you’re at that high a level it’s not that uncommon.

    Speaking of peptides, it’s easy to get caught in that sphere once ligaments and tendons need support

    No doubt. I think he was trying to get every 0.05%increase he could from anything he was taking

    Shooting insulin is such a high playing with fire situation. Probably second to taking DNP but not by much

    DNP is literal poison. I think insulin is mostly fine as long as dosages are small to moderate. Open level BBers that are in the high double digit IUs a day gets to death levels if you make a mistake.

    Hearing stories about BB competitors keeping gummy bears on hand in case they start to go into a hypoglycemic coma was so unsettling. But yea like with everything, things in moderation. Insulin still gives me the heebie jeebies

    Doesn’t look like it ended well.

    Kevin Oak seems like someone who could do it with his strength and athletic background but the question is why

    Yikes, went to site and options aren't ideal at all. Don't really check it often as a belt that fits is good for a lifetime

    Good question. Yea I’d just join their mailing list. If you’re in need of one quicker than they can restock, Inzer is very high quality and might have some available. I haven’t really checked since I haven’t been in the market

    Have a really nice gym at resort I’m staying at but no barbell(dumbbells up to 100s though). Did some Smith machine squats like a real man.

    Question for y’all. Going back and forth between this suggested regime from someone who’s going to grad school for nutrition and fitness and is big into weightlifting and also the basic for beginners routine found on Reddit.

    want to get stronger. But don’t want to be stuck in the gym for 1.5 hrs. Also, want my strength to be functional in sports and not just lifting to lift.

    Her rec was:
    Day: 1 upper body push - chest press and shoulder press (several sets, varying weight for one, several sets with moderate weight for other. Alternate next week) / add in two other push exercises (few sets / same, moderate weight)
    Day 2: leg day - squats and deadlifts (several sets, varying weight for one; several sets moderate weight on other. Alternate next week). Add two other leg exercises. Low reps light weight.
    Day 3: light cardio basketball and jog
    Day 4: upper body pull - pull downs and bent over rows (same routine as others). Add two other pulls. Low sets, moderate weight.
    Day 5: HIIT lower body and core work out

    This has me in and out of the gym in about an hour. Also allows for plenty of warm up and stretch time. Crucial for someone in my shitty physical condition and genetics.

    Is this dumb. Please be candid and insulting as you want. I’ve had plenty of time to research this and I’ve become overwhelmed and this is just the routine that plopped out of my head.

    looking for the right blend of functional strength (as in not just looking for big titties and arms for the beach) and time efficiency.

    also for heart health, should I squeeze in a slow, long jog in there somewhere to go with the other cardios?

    If you’re a beginner, don’t have to do much to get gains. Worry about a designed routine in a year, just get in there and work on the basic movements

    I wouldn’t do 5x a week unless 1-2 are cardio

    I was so dumb in the beginning and still got newby gains. Year after that I was wondering why I wasn’t gaining strength doing much of the same.

    A good hotel gym is invaluable. I was at the Sedona Hilton and their gym is ridiculous.

    one of the few things i miss from my last public gym was a guy who always did battle ropes. perfect rhythm with the ropes, people would get hypnotized by it. myself included.

    This overall set up is good. For a casual gym
    goer and casual athlete, all strength will be functional. You don’t need special exercises really until you’re looking at the collegiate and above level. For deadlifts, do trap bar deads but otherwise this is a decent set up. Like Gunners said as a newbie you won’t have to do much to get gains. Just stay consistent and try to keep adding more load over time

    for heart health ~60 mins of cardio split between 2-3 sessions a week keeping your heart rate around 65-75% of your max will be good. Main way to keep your heart healthy: eat fruits and vegetables, keep blood pressure low, stress management, quality sleep, don’t be obese.

    Thanks y’all. Was driving myself crazy wondering if I was under doing it. Okay this sounds like a decent set up for the first three months and then I may be back in here asking new questions.

    Don’t lose the forest for the trees. If you’re not making progress try to do a little more. If you’re not recovering, do a little less or recover better. The only effective program is one you can stick to and recover from

    Anyone ever squat barefoot? I was getting a toe cramp from my chuck Taylors so randomly tried it and it felt awesome. Felt hyper-aware of my form and so much more stable. Any issues with squatting barefoot in my home gym?

    No issues whatsoever. If it works keep going. Then throw those converse’s in the closest trash can you can find or only wear them casually
