Haha @BigBadSaxon - ID here’s another glimpse of the Cimmerian:
*Conan's hand fell heavily on her naked shoulder.
"Stand aside, girl," he mumbled. "Now is the feasting of swords."*
I can feel my test levels rising already
Still working my way through the Horus Heresy and that's a long read so the Cimmerian will be a welcome fermata
I was just about to say, I think a lot of WH40k content rivals Conan re: test and gloriousness
I need some high energy aggressive lifting music like this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ly3xWAUN7YY
anyone got recommendations?
if adding running to a workout, before or after lifts and core work?
Running after lifting boosts hgh production
@Gaius Mucius Scaevola Check out Final War, offensive weapon, English rose. Great RAC music for lifting.
i normally run on their own day or after hitting legs
I have an upper body day
Lower body + running day
Can someone recommend me some knee sleeves for working out?
@Tyler0317 I was just gonna run after my workout everyday. Should I not run everyday?
You can run as frequently as you want my man.
Cardio after working out helps to flush the lactic acid(the burning sensation in your muscles) from your body.
I'm less sore the day after running than I would otherwise be.
SBD sleeves will add weight to your squat because they are made to help increase totals. Get them in a certain size and it can add like 50lbs
I use a pair from elitefts (where i got my lifting belt). They are nice and tight and warm but dont add as much bounce. They are also woven which is nice for the extra flexibility
Shock Doctor has some good stuff too
Just went for a run after lifting
I feel like I could go right into another workout, why haven't I done this before?
I did Tate press for tris today after Low bar and close grip bench. The new angle had my tris on fire
SBD is best in my opinion. Or go with the STrong sleeves. They're both on the pricier side but the quality is phenomenal and they'll greatly reduce your risk of injury
Tfw only 1 month to bulk up in order to look good for the IE conference
Just sprinkle some onion on him.
Ha even I have 40 lbs on that guy.
Special case he needs 3 onions a day
@Nick-NJ I heard Strong sleeves are manufactured with a shitty material now...no longer sbd equivalents
Sub 15%! Cutting season finally going well.
Are you using the scale for bf%? That changes based on how hydrated you are so it’s not that accurate. Body Fat calipers are better
@Suomi Stronk any pics? That's pretty much exactly my body weight/body fat % and want to compare
Face obscured of course
I take pride that whenever i get a physical done I always get complimented on my cardiovascular health
Deficit deadlift and rackpulls for me today lads, what're you all training in the temple today?
Deadies, press, diamond push ups, dumbbell curls
Low bar squat, sumo, close grip bench. Lots of accessories
Is it weird that I've never trained Sumo
I just bring myself to do it
I deadlift conventional and squat high bar in competition but the program has me sumo and low bar so that’s why
I feel like a special snowflake every time I set up for the lift
Haha damn I would never squat anything but lowbar in competition
So I can squat morning the weight if I need to
@peytonT How heavy do you highbar?
I did only 225 and felt like my spine was fusing, lol
-Lowbar exclusively for me.
Evening gents, would you say that organic is a healthier alternative to conventional food produce?
Here’s 370 for four
@The Eternal Anglo Healthier, unquestionably.
The real argument is whether the price of organic is worth it.
You get used to it. Low bar feels wonky to me
I’ve always squatted high bar idk I like it
Dropped a warmup in formcheck if anyone wants to help me out
@Deleted User I understand Body Fat calipers are better, but is one of those scales still useful?
Yes it is
It's not perfect but it's better than a standard scale
"Organic Food"... what our ancestors called "Food". Yes, I prefer organic, but... the Chinese self-certify. And since they put poison in baby formula, I don't trust them at all. So, I'd rather USA non-organic than non-USA organic. And, sometimes the markups are too much. I'll pay maybe 20% more, but sometimes they ask double or triple for organic. I won't go that far. Anyway, I get organic when I can. @The Eternal Anglo
Buy local if you can
Even if not organic, you know where it came from.
Another form vid on bench up in formcheck
I'm hitting the gym shortly and I have it in mind that I'm going to try to kill my arms.
You might need them later
Not till Monday so I'll be ok. I'm doing legs tomorrow and rest Sunday so they'll come back to life by then.
LIGHT WEIGHT BABY
NBC Sports, the de facto owner of the Olympic Games, just doesn't include the “testosterone” sports in their coverage – unless there is a severe injury that looks very bad (good) on TV. Swimming is fine (no hairy men), all women's sports are fine (no hairy men), gymnastics, ditto (basically a children's sport), skiing is okay (hair doesn't show through lycra), and the equestrian events are just fine (horses are innocent even if hairy). What you will not see are more than one or two Weightlifters, shot-putters, hammer throwers, or discus throwers. Javelins are too pointy, as are epees and sabers, and such weapon-y things are threatening. Basically, you get to see activities you would personally enjoy on a Sunday afternoon – you know, wholesome stuff without the slightest whiff of meanness, bullying, or testosterone.
These errors of omission are quite thoroughly intentional, and are designed by the people who present the vast majority of most people's exposure to the Olympics, 99% of whom are not watching the internet feeds. The Media controls the popular culture, and control is, by definition, not accidental.
Speaking of that Lindsey Von got BTFOD tonight. She was the one who said she's boycotting the 2028 Olympics because it's being hosted in racist America. She's a white American BTW
She said she refuses to ski for America during the 2028 Olympics, which was funny because 2028 is the summer Olympics
@Mark Vandal#5146 I actuallly oloed
I doubt she still is. She's 30 years old
Here's a shooting and shooting sports podcast I'm working on for the coming months. https://discord.gg/4tNANAr
@Tyler0317 I laughed hard as fuck at work when I got to the test scores part
@Deleted User What do you think about a 'gym motivation' (or just #motivation) channel?
Kind of like a whitepills For working out channel?
Quotes, pics, inspirational books, videos
In theory this entire server is supposed to be gym motivation.
videos, books, pics, quotes, etc like Saxon said
That's a good point William
This server is the reason I squeezed in a training session today between my two jobs
Have some heavy deads tonight so gonna have a vid
Time for a frigid garage workout. Should have gotten a space heater back in December.
Nice. I've been doing those all winter.
I was lifting in the cold until my landlord let me use his garage haha
What are some good workouts that you can do at home without weights?
I’d just do a search for calisthenics workouts
Eventually, you will need to use weights to continue making progress.
You can get shredded but it'd be very hard to get BIG
@Warren H The FFL workout will get you in amazing shape if you can make it work for you. No gym needed. (If you can, lifting is still great and you should get a membership)
This is for the days when I don't make it to the gym. I do workout with weights regularly. Thanks for the suggestions
French Foreign Legion
Just got the best parking spot at the gym I've ever had
We're all gonna make it lads
Took a rest day after skipping the last 12. Weights moving amazing rn lads
Mirin rest day
By rest I guess only lifted once yesterday in the am lol. Also @Nick-NJ I made sure to fix my softish knees today with 430 dl triples and no issues. Thanks for the heads up tho
Good stuff m8
You compete right Nick?
Finally starting to figure out the snatch. That lift has been giving me trouble for weeks
It's taking forever to get it to "click"
I’m having trouble getting gains. How much should I be hoping for in a month? I seem to be stuck at 150 lbs no matter what I do
Nuclear, I’m kinda stuck between 160-165 and I’m 5’7. Just get strong as fuck then go into bodybuilding training and force feeds yourself
@NuclearReactionary gib more info. How much do you weigh? How much are you lifting? What program are you following if any
You gotta eat big.
If you aren't putting on ANY weight, you are not eating enough. It's that simple
If you are 150 and fat, that's a different situation.
Not fat, just not really gaining weight.
@Nick-NJ I weigh 153 right now. I’m not following a program. I just have a set of adjustable dumbbells and a bench right now. I lift 3 times a week, rotating between muscle groups.
@NuclearReactionary Start recording your daily calories and weigh yourself to find your basline, then add approx. 300 calorie surplus to gain weight. If you are eating a caloric surplus you will gain weight. Track in an app like fitday. You also need to be following a program and recording your sets/weight so you can see that your progressing.
If you arent tracking your weight numbers and calorie numbers so you can adjust them and doing it by "feel" you likely wont make the progress you want.
@NuclearReactionary For reference, I'm a naturally slender guy too.
I gained 20 solid lbs after following the Starting Strength program.
Like @Brandon Ironside- ND said, you need a REAL program, one you can keep track of, and chart your improvements, and you need to eat more than you presently do.
Ok. I am keeping track of my weight numbers, but I will look into a program.
I will also look into tracking my caloric intake.
@NuclearReactionary This is the program I used/still usehttps://www.amazon.com/Starting-Strength-Basic-Barbell-Training/dp/0982522738
I don’t have a barbell 😩
This is what I have for the moment.
Gyms do. ;)
I got 2 barbells and freeweights from Craigslist, for alot less than you'd expect.
Maybe I’ll get a barbell this summer, but for now I have to make do with what I got.
called a gym membership, nibba
Mark Rippetoe is the shit
And also funny as hell
Ok, dumb question. Is there a right time of day to weigh yourself or does it only matter that you do the same time every day?
Best time is probably right when you wake up
But mostly it's about doing it same time every day
Some people say once a week, in the morning
Weighing everyday is not only not a good gauge (weight naturally fluctuates from day to day which is not a reflection of your long-term progress) but is also a recipe for an unhealthy obsession with your weight, if you are prone to such things as body dysmorphia.
Just weigh in at the same time of day, once or twice a week,any time that works best for you, wearing the same amount of clothing each time. When I used to weigh myself (stopped because body dysmorphia) I would also take into account the state of my digestive system, but that might be veering on obsessive too.
Weighing in everyday just creates too much noise in the data set you are trying to observe. Once every week or two will show you good trends. Also use body fat calipers so you know that the weight you lose is fat or that the weight you are gaining is muscle.
Example: If you went on a bender the night previous you’re gonna weigh more and go “oh god, I need to change my diet” and screw up
Just don't base your weight goals or diet on what you weigh that day
I'm a big proponent of weighing yourself every day so you have more data
So you know which days you've shit before weighing, drank the night before (degenerate), etc
As long as you don't freak out every time you look at the scale or base everything on your weight weighing yourself every day is fine
This is what most of my suppers look like. Put the fish in for 8 minutes and nuke the sweet potato for 3 minutes after poking holes in it.
@Suomi Stronk#0869 You just called it supper!
You are an honorary Southerner. 😃
Working out at the YMCA is such a mixed bag of whitepills and blackpills
on one hand, I see a lot of white kids and white families being active and being together
on other hand, I see hijabs and thots with partially shaved heads and face tattoos and spiked collar necklaces
Ankle got destroyed yesterday bouldering. It feels better today but calls for another day off. Sucks
I listen to only this on loop when I hit the gym
Only a sprain in the ankle but was told I need 6 weeks off. Anyone have experience with a grade 2-3 ankle sprain?
R.I.C.E. every day, stay off it as long as you can
I used crutches after I got a similar level ankle sprain during a skydiving landing
@Havamal hey bro I was shoa’d yesterday... I got the boot from discord... so I’m trying to get all my severs back... can I get an invite to the heathen server?
Thanks .... didn’t realize how much I use that server until I didn’t have it/couldn’t use it.
And to make matters worse my youngest dropped my phone in some water at the park so I lost phone contacts of a ton of IE guys... double shoa
Something has it out for you.
@Havamal still haven’t gotten the link ... I wonder what’s goin on?…………
Per the osteopath I saw for an ankle sprain two years ago, soft tissue injuries actually take 3 months to fully heal. Come back to your usual activities very cautiously after six weeks. I would continue to wear at least an ace bandage until the three months are up. During the six weeks a brace with metal supports to limit mobility is a good idea.
So what I’m hearing is I’m young and dumb for jumping back so soon? As long as I’m pain free I should be okay tho right? I planed on trying 40-50% on lifts tonight to gauge
DM me and I'll reply
@peytonT Tissue isn't healed even if it doesn't hurt. You're increasing your chances of creating a recurring injury, very common with sprained ankles.
We gon’ climb it 🅱ois
So went and hit the gym and nothing hurts except when I walk in my bench setup but that’s an easy fix I’ll switch to my oly shoes and plant the heel
Went ahead and hit my prescribed deadlifts and ohp for the day cause I felt good. Will take a light days before squats to be extra safe
The lack of squat focus of my oly program took away my 315 PR low bar back squat. feelsbadman
I think I'll pick the SS program back up in conjunction with my oly program which will basically have me lifting almost every day
If you really want to get your squat up do a Smolov Jr cycle
Got me from 400 to 500 by the end
It's a hellish couple months but you'll be the best at squatting you've ever been
I'm long over my fear of squatting lol
Smolov will make you fear again haha
damn 10 sets of 3 at 85%
The hard days were the 9 rep sets for me
And just knowing that every day at the gym that squat bar is waiting for you
Was terrifying and exhilirating
Oh wait I was looking at the full smolov
so the Jr is only 3 weeks? Is that enough to see improvement?
I guess I can just pick up where the Jr left off and continue the full
That's what I ended up doing
We had to cut the full one short because of a deployment but the squat and overall body gains were unreal
Smolov is real shit.
awesome, did you gain any lean mass?
I assume you were eating a lot, looks like a lot of volume to not be eating a ton for recovery
I gained half an inch on my biceps and lost inches around my waist
were you doing the bench cycle?
damn half an inch on the arms on a squat program? lol
Yeah. It was strange
question; were you low bar or high bar squatting?
And to this day my ass got so big girls comment on it regularly
lol my ex was obsessed with how round my ass got
tbh I think mine got too big
I got up to 265 at my last powerlifting meet so I hear you
My oly coach wants me to switch to high bar which sucks since I can't lift nearly as much weight that way
I'd listen just because oly lifting is so toight
My sister competes in oly lifting
yeah and oly lifers have mad aesthetic quads
low bar is more hamstrings
Yeah. My quads are nothing to laugh at but my hamstrings and glutes are where my gains show
Alway good motivation
Listen to Ivan
So I've really been thinking
Would you guys be interested in doing little voice chats discussing various fitness topics?
Workout tips, dieting, supplements, etc?
Just squats. You can only debate high bar v. low bar squats.
I'd be down
High bar vs low bar will be the end of the server
