I make poor decisions. May keep progressing first part but absolutely no reason for RDL singles right after.
my caloric deficit has finally shown it's head and i am now familiar with the art of dumping a bar while squatting.
Yesterday I DL 405 3X10 then did back stuff
If you take enough tren form doesn’t matter
I know a former training partner of his. Said he would bring a cooler to training full of syringes with diff peptides, anabolics, etc and had everything timed to the minute
What a mad scientist
*angry full rom noises
Time to replace my adidas powerlifters, what’s everyone wearing?
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
you have my attention
For research purposes, of course
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
i lift barefooted. it's free
Curves has a policy against that.
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
Belt recs please. Capstone 88 pls send me your belt from when you were a weak boi like me
Oak’s squat form drives me nuts. so upright and balanced.
Pioneer 10mm, I’m about 3 cheeseburgers away from getting too fat for old 1 myself
Pioneer or Belt Fed Strength if you want true custom.
a guy from my old gym had a strength shop lever belt he got as a gift and was too fat for, he sold me that in 2017 for $30. i’ve been using it ever since.
I have a Pioneer and Inzer and love both. Pioneer would be my first choice just due to have good of a guy the owner is.
I squatted 550 for a double today. I’m coming for Tom Platz record
Any idea when Pioneer restocks? Should I just join their mailing list?
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
My pioneer belt is in year 6 and is as good as new.
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
idk what my brain is doing but i forgot sleeves again on squats. didn't have any trouble and felt solid on my singles.
Tim is divesting Ghost. Wild but seems the best for him. Interested in what Rogue does with what they’re buying.
The Canadian Queen out here putting on a show. 481lbs at 167lbs bodyweight
i am on pace to be squatting as much as world class women's lifters 12kg lighter than me by this time next year.
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.
You had cardio in there, my bad.
Looks decent to me.
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?
I primarily lift at home barefoot
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
i squat in my home gym barefooted. my only issues so far are a couple of stubbed toes.
