Thought the Zumba part was better but understand why you edited it
I’m just talking shit. Any time people exercise to better themselves then I support the shit out of it
got the powerblock 50-70lb extension for xmas. should be able to expand my accessory options with these. might be purchasing a belt squat arm for the tiny gym too idk, other part of my brain wants a hex bar.
I need to sell my belt squat attachment. If it wasn’t going to be hundreds of dollars to ship it we couod work something out.
I’m pretty old but when did guys just start wearing weight belts for the entire duration of the time at the gym. I thought you were supposed to strap that thing up uncomfortably tight, do a really heavy compound lift (squats or deadlifts) then immediately take it off. Am I out of touch?
That’s actually an old thing. Those old school guys wore those thinner leather ones like Cardillo for everything. Only thing I could see it useful is on back day to just leave it on the whole time. I only wore my lever Inzer one for the set of squats or deadlifts then took that thing off.
I’m guessing most of the people you’re seeing doing it are wearing it and it’s not doing anything
you are near atlanta? i am in the Clemson Metro area.
Pioneer belt was an amazing purchase and a bargain 3x the price but I do hate wearing it. if it’s not off within 2 seconds after my lift then I’m probably dead
every gym i ever went to had an old dude with his weight belt always on.
The younger guys will rock the Velcro Nike or Harbinger ones all the time.
that’s what I see. The Velcro ones. And they aren’t tightening and loosening it. They just wear ky
It’s the male girdle.
Intrigued by the belt Brian Shaw’s company made that all the strongmen are using. Most use it as an underbelt but Mitch Hooper is pulling crazy shit as his primary.
The cheap Velcro ones are a joke
Wait shit I thought you were elsewhere. Yea I’m in Atlanta. I’ve got that SquatMax that attaches to a rack
Anybody have any recs for a water row machine? Looking for something that can store easily but would also prefer to not spend a fortune
Edit: or are magnetic better?
Buy a concept or buy nothing, I need to use mine more but constant back soreness is a bitch. Pretty much all my cardio is on concept bike which is an incredible machine as well.
maybe i’m just dumb and missing some body control, but i could never use a rower consistently without back pain.
I’ve been getting back cramps behind my shoulder blades in my mid back when benching lately and can’t figure it out. I have no problems during weighted chin ups later in the same workout, so it seems like it’s gotta be something about my bench setup rather than a lat problem or something. Anyone ever dealt with this?
3x10 405 DL beltless.
i get knots in that area after pressing, back work, and deadlifts. i do a bunch of mobility routines before lifts and band stuff which combined with some foam rolling keeps it pretty manageable.
Does your gym have a hack squat? That’ll allow you to still get the focus on the quads without the propensity of injury to your back
Oh yeah. Use that and leg press.
have been doing a few new things as i nurse some ouchies
straddle lifts - i do them from a sumo stance and then hold for a few seconds at the top. i can conjugate that shit and do speed reps or use bands idk it really helps me for firing up glutes.
single hand farmers walks and single hand holds - just really working the shit out of my core
a single leg squat with a band hooked to my rack has been really nice too
meadows row to landmine press - i superset almost everything outside of main lifts, and this is just so easy.
First lower body session in 3 weeks
1x 475+80 in band
5 singles x 425+ same band, 6 total reps performed under 9 minutes
3x3 365 RDLs because I didn’t feel like doing more than 3 reps of any weight
Typically do a squat variation after deadlifts, I struggled with 1 plate SSB after this and gave up
Oh how I missed these lower back feels
Started working out again seriously around the first of December. Have put 10lbs on in the month (T1D, average weight before was 190lbs-200lbs, got as low as 145lbs before being diagnosed) now I am back over 170lbs.
From a strength standpoint, everything is shit and I'm honestly weaker than I was in JH or HS, but god damn does it feel good again. From a physique standpoint, I'm borderline a greek god, but that's more of a joke as I am still smaller than my teenage years.
What exercises do ya'll consider a staple when it comes to chest/back?
Chest supported rows
also these lateral slider lunges in the middle slide. these are humbling at times.
I had forgotten about this but in my younger weight lifting days after using NO Xplod for a number of years, I switched to C4 and it gave me this horrible "ants-under-my-skin" feeling throughout my body. Never tried it again.
randomly this morning I grabbed one of these as I drove to the airport for a long day. Thought I was breaking out in hives or something at first then remembered. Whatever ingredient this has that other preworkouts and energy drinks don't, my body hates.
all you need for a pre workout is caffeine and a cialis. Boom
This stuff is the woooooorst
Continuing my series on people who annoy the shit out of me at the gym. Checking in behind dudes that wear weightbelts around like it’s holding up their pants it’s a 2 parter. dudes who wrap their hands to hit the heavy bag but then leave the hand wraps on to do the rest of their workout and guys who shadow box between sets. No one gives a shit about your 2-4 MMA record, you aren’t a tough guy, stop it.
I had some life events happen and had to be at a commercial gym for 3 weeks. It was horrendous.
i like Niacin tbh.
You forgot cinnamon sugar pop tarts wtf
Think I used Niacin to pass drug tests in high school
Niacin and cranberry juice.. don't think it worked, just diluted my sample. Synthetic pee does the job though.
That’s post workout. Get that sweet insulin spike
How can I manipulate my glucose levels for strength gains? lol
Novolin, humalog, lantus
But don’t do any of that. Eat some golden bears like a champ
Simplest way would be make sure youre not insulin resistant then time high glycemic carbs around training while minimizing fat
I keep that humalog on deck, and not resistant (yet) but am T1D
squat u guy appears to have lifters back in stock.
been enjoying her stories lately.
I’ve been watching Mike Israetel videos and it seems like good info but I would like one of you meatheads to confirm that
