I pretty much stopped eating after due to stress from law school, women, and all the witch hunting, dropped to about 155-160 where I am now

2017-12-30 16:20:15 UTC

That is my biggest problem is my diet. It is hard to maintain a strict diet living a busy life and raising 3 kids.

2017-12-31 00:22:40 UTC

So I'm starting to get more in to lifting instead of purely staying lean and relatively strong. One of the big things recommended to me was pre workout and protein. Any recommendations?

2017-12-31 00:26:10 UTC

I'd like to know that as well ^^^ I make a protein shake with glutamine and creatine after my lifting, but what are the benefits of any sort of pre-workout supplement?

2017-12-31 00:28:23 UTC

coffee is all you need

2017-12-31 00:28:44 UTC

not saying that you "need" a preworkout anyways

2017-12-31 00:28:48 UTC

i don't use one

2017-12-31 00:29:26 UTC

I use NOxplode. i go to the gym at 6am during work days and i need a preworkout to help me wake up and be functional in the gym

2017-12-31 00:30:18 UTC

Funny story about NOxplode- my roommate in college bought that stuff, went to the gym twice, then just drank it in the morning before class to "help him wake up"

2017-12-31 00:31:10 UTC

yeah it gives you a nice euphoric feeling

2017-12-31 00:31:31 UTC

So it's literally just a pick me up/ caffeine boost/ alertness tool, no muscular benefits?

2017-12-31 00:32:03 UTC

What about protein powders?

2017-12-31 00:32:08 UTC

What would be ideal there

2017-12-31 00:32:34 UTC

It is designed to be taken before lifting heavy weights. Not a simple caffeine boost

2017-12-31 00:33:11 UTC

Ok thanks for the info, I'll pick some up and give it a try.

2017-12-31 00:34:09 UTC

The only advice I can give on all that stuff is it is not regulated by the FDA so be very careful

2017-12-31 00:34:21 UTC

Defintiely researcha a product before buying it

2017-12-31 00:35:03 UTC

Absolutely. I research everything, ESPECIALLY something I'm going to ingest.

2017-12-31 00:35:39 UTC

nice

2017-12-31 00:36:09 UTC

@Sonic yeah to my knowledge it does not have a direct effect on muscles. it helps you get a veiny look while lifting because of the L-Arginine in it. that also will give you good erections as well lol

2017-12-31 00:36:13 UTC

I have also seen people who say they do not use supplements, and they get all their nutrients and such from food

2017-12-31 00:39:29 UTC

@Pat-MA I've heard the same thing but my food choice is extremely restricted so it's more achievable through supplements at this point

2017-12-31 00:40:54 UTC

Why is your food choice restricted?

2017-12-31 01:12:23 UTC

Trying to get my bench back to what it was before season. Was able to do 4 sets of 3 reps of 225 finishing with 6 reps of 225, 30 second rests between sets. Was tougher than it was this summer, but it's progress!

2017-12-31 01:48:21 UTC

Nice. Wish I could crank that out. I am afraid to really push it ATM as I'm working out solo and haven't seen anyone at them gym I'd even consider asking.

2017-12-31 01:57:10 UTC

If you want to get gains you have to follow the progressive overload principle. It's actually a lot safer (imo) to do heavier loads with smaller amount of reps than the other way, as more reps = more chance for injury due to fatigue.

2017-12-31 01:58:01 UTC

And you don't have to get someone jacked to spot you. As long as someone is competent enough they should be able to provide enough help that between the two of you you'll get the weight up.

2017-12-31 01:58:08 UTC

But yeah, safety is important.

2017-12-31 01:59:28 UTC

Ya forsure. I have to stay uninjured to be able to work.

2017-12-31 02:47:21 UTC

heck yeah

2018-01-01 20:32:26 UTC

god damn, i forgot how good I feel after a great workout

2018-01-01 20:32:36 UTC

the holidays had me sedentary

2018-01-01 20:32:50 UTC

I can feel the T

2018-01-01 20:53:26 UTC

Worked out today for the first time in over a decade....time to boost that T for the Ethnostate!

2018-01-01 21:39:28 UTC

Lol no gainz yet

2018-01-05 21:07:46 UTC

Powerlifting and gymnastics are a terrifying power. HOW CAN YOU STOP A MAN WHO CAN HUMAN FLAG AND SQUAT 4 PLATES

2018-01-06 19:22:09 UTC

Howdy fellas. Just got a gym membership and I only know a handful of different workouts. Is there any comprehensive YouTube series or a collection of articles y'all would recommend?

2018-01-06 19:31:32 UTC

Honestly it's a good idea to get with someone experienced to create a program that targets the results you want, and from there research each workout/movement to get down the form.

2018-01-06 19:32:18 UTC

Watching yourself in the mirror is vital for good form as well if you don't have a partner or coach

2018-01-06 19:43:20 UTC

@Farmer D Can you share with us what you're going for and what your current body condition is? Don't worry we won't judge you. No one in the alt right ever judges anyone. Ever.

2018-01-06 19:48:26 UTC

6ft 180 lbs. very low stamina at the moment. Average strength. I want to get up to 200 lbs. be able to run 5 miles. Bench a full set 10 at 200 and squat a full set at 300. Get up to 100 push-ups and 25 or 30 pull ups. Basically just become all around healthy and flexible

2018-01-06 19:49:31 UTC

Lose this skinny fat physique I currently have

2018-01-06 19:52:33 UTC

Ok. I'm 6'1 and 185 so it looks like we have similar frames. Do you know what your current stats are for 5-mile run, bench, squat, push ups, and pull ups?

2018-01-06 19:52:57 UTC

I can tell you that 30 pull ups is a pretty high goal

2018-01-06 19:56:05 UTC

I can do 10 reps bench at like 110. 10 reps squat at 120. 10 pull-ups. 30 push-ups. I can only run 1 mile without taking a walk break in 8 min

2018-01-06 19:56:20 UTC

These are all long term goals

2018-01-06 19:57:34 UTC

we all have to start somewhere

2018-01-06 19:57:36 UTC

My muscles and stamina have severely atrophied due to sitting on my ass being a NEET of sorts for years

2018-01-06 19:58:18 UTC

Most guys here will recommend starting strength for you, and I will agree. That's probably what you should do. I also recommend eating a paleo diet.

2018-01-06 20:42:50 UTC

@Farmer D What state are you in Rachel? We might have a member near you that can help!

2018-01-06 20:44:12 UTC

I'm up in NorCal. Like an hour north of sac. I have yet to find anyone within a 1 hour drive

2018-01-06 22:42:09 UTC

Damn. I'm about 2 hours away. I'd be happy to kind of give you a run down of everything some day but we would have to plan it out. I compete in powerlifting and work at a gym so we could work on making a program or something

2018-01-09 01:28:04 UTC

@BigBadSaxon - ID Any tips to work more hamstrings/hips and less low back while deadlifting?

2018-01-09 01:50:38 UTC

Just my two cents but starting with a tight deadlift position by not yanking the bar when initiating the pull but by pulling the slack out helps tremendously. Also, make sure that you start with your hips high, contrary to what bro scientists will tell you, high hips with just enough knee flexion to break out of a 'Romanian deadlift' is the most efficient way to recruit your hamstring and glutes.

2018-01-09 01:51:52 UTC

A lot of time lower back DOMS is triggered by starting in too much of an upright position causing your hips to shoot up right after you initiate the pull.

2018-01-09 01:55:02 UTC

Alan Thrall and Mark Rippetoe have good instructional videos which give a much more nuanced explanation

2018-01-09 01:58:32 UTC

^^^Alan Thrall ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

2018-01-09 02:34:39 UTC

Also, controlled descent is better than dropping

2018-01-09 04:09:48 UTC

First night back after a 3 month injury recovery felt amazing. Blast some fashwave and pick stiff up and put it down again

2018-01-09 04:10:21 UTC

Damn it feels good to be back

2018-01-09 06:34:24 UTC

Welcome back

2018-01-09 19:30:28 UTC

Is your lower back bothering you, @Pat-MA ?

2018-01-09 19:30:56 UTC

Or do you just want more ham glute activation/strength gain

2018-01-09 19:31:54 UTC

for me, just bringing my feet in closer helps a ton

2018-01-10 19:58:40 UTC

Its not bothering me. But i want more ham and glute activation so it does not bother me down the road. I am afraid poor form will lead to injury long-term

2018-01-10 20:23:43 UTC

try to find what form fits you best, don't listen to all the tutorials

2018-01-10 20:23:54 UTC

That's what's really allowed me to deadlift more

2018-01-10 20:51:07 UTC

Also, 99% of advice people give me is wrong about my body. Any time I adjusted form for other people it was bad

2018-01-10 20:51:42 UTC

Goes without saying, ignore all advice from anyone who looks worse than you or has less experience generally

2018-01-10 20:52:42 UTC

Like TIDE said, go with what works for you (within reason).

Bringing his feet closer together helped him, but doing a wider strongman stance helped me. So it depends on the person

2018-01-10 23:57:41 UTC

Gotcha fellas. I found a form that made my hammies sore the next day and nothing in my low back, so I'll stay with that for now.

What's yalls core routine for big bulky abbs

2018-01-13 06:19:27 UTC

I've started doing dragon flags recently and they're giving me that "going heavy" feeling for abs that nothing else does @Mark Vandal

2018-01-13 12:48:39 UTC

@Mark Vandal leg raises and ab wheel

2018-01-15 19:11:20 UTC

I used to love doing breathing weighted planks at the end of my squat/deadlift day

2018-01-15 19:12:04 UTC

But I hear ab wheel is the way to go

2018-01-16 00:47:51 UTC

2018-01-16 05:05:30 UTC

Can some of you guys critique my workout plan? I've been lifting to bodybuild and get strong but want to see if I'm being excessive in certain areas, (especially on my chest and bis day). What would you add to certain days and what would you subtract? I do three sets of 8-12 reps on most exercises. Thanks in advance!

2018-01-16 05:06:10 UTC

lower your rep range

2018-01-16 05:06:55 UTC

this is crazy

2018-01-16 05:07:06 UTC

justf scrap the entire thing

2018-01-16 05:07:29 UTC

if you want to body build to strong lifts 5X5

2018-01-16 05:07:52 UTC

everything is wrong

2018-01-16 05:08:41 UTC

Each screenshot corresponds to a weekday

2018-01-16 05:08:51 UTC

yea this isnt a good program

2018-01-16 05:09:24 UTC

top many exercises

2018-01-16 05:09:30 UTC

too*

2018-01-16 05:09:36 UTC

to many reps

2018-01-16 05:10:30 UTC

Which ones are worth keeping and which ones should I scrap?

2018-01-16 05:10:51 UTC

juat do a whole new program

2018-01-16 05:11:04 UTC

either starting strength or strong liftrs

2018-01-16 05:11:17 UTC

strong lifts*

2018-01-16 05:11:44 UTC

you said you wanna body build, do strong lifts

2018-01-16 05:12:55 UTC

Got it

2018-01-16 05:19:03 UTC

Looks good, I have a strong chest and arms but I've been doing dumbbells for a few months and can't maintain this pace...

2018-01-16 05:19:51 UTC

make adjustmesnts as needed , but try it out cookie cutter at first

2018-01-16 05:20:33 UTC

but if your in begginer/ novice lifting faze this is the generel guidline your chould follow

2018-01-16 05:21:02 UTC

focus on shirter rep range heavy basic compund movments with a system of liner progression

2018-01-16 05:23:07 UTC

if you wanna add excesorie movments feel free but generely worry about squating more , benching more, ohping more, deDLIFTING MORE

2018-01-16 05:23:40 UTC

if you get you core lifts up your gonna get bigger

2018-01-16 10:05:29 UTC

^

2018-01-17 04:55:39 UTC

Agree with shyguy, barbel excercises 3xweek with _consistentcy_ and slow increases will get you results. All you make your body strong and good looking is 3-4 excercises and that is it.

2018-01-17 17:48:33 UTC

Daily reminder to stress the importance of form and focus on your dead lifts - I was rushing through a lift and herniated a disc, wasn't even going too crazy with the weight. Now I can't lift at all for a while. The mental aspect is just as important as the physical, so don't compromise on either or injuries are bound to happen.

https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/388502404641062924/403244219151417355/20180117_124415.jpg

2018-01-17 18:57:12 UTC

That's rough. Hopefully you have a speedy recovery. @Steve - NJ

2018-01-17 18:59:22 UTC

@Steve - NJ take it easy brother

2018-01-17 19:25:05 UTC

Also don't use fabric/Velcro weight belts. Use the sturdy leather ones. Better support there.

2018-01-17 19:26:04 UTC

It's probably a no-brainer for most of you guys but I wasn't aware of that til it was too late

2018-01-17 19:52:30 UTC

Sorry to hear that. I hope you recover quickly. What do you think the cause was? Weak core, not resetting at the bottom/touch and go, too much weight, hitching?

2018-01-17 19:57:26 UTC

So it happened when I was doing 315, which I've rapped plenty of times in the past. I've been able to get sets of 405 in where I can do ~5 reps each. So the day I got injured I was warming up with 225 and I felt *great* so I was like "OK 315 is gonna be a breeze" so I just rushed it and went to full extension too quick and felt my spine shift from within my belt and it HURT. My adrenaline was going so I was able to re-rack and go home but I could barely move when the adrenaline wore off

2018-01-17 19:58:12 UTC

I wear the belt tight too when I go just to be safe

2018-01-17 20:08:21 UTC

@Steve - NJ sorry to hear that, brother. Once you're recovered, you'll be back at that weight in no time. I had a buddy who completely blew out his knee and couldn't squat for 8 months. Once he recovered fully he ended up hitting a 20lb meet PR after only 8 weeks of training

2018-01-17 21:20:02 UTC

I prob could do light stuff for now but it seems like whenever I take a long break anyways I come back better than before. Which sounds counterintuitive but just seems to work out that way. Moral of the story is don't be stupid and assume you're invincible.

2018-01-17 21:31:50 UTC

@Steve - NJ did you brace your abs against your belt on the set where you got hurt? Ive found thats a pretty good way to limit the pressure on your back during deadlift

2018-01-17 21:48:44 UTC

I probably took pressure off since I was going quick and left an opening for my back to give

2018-01-18 08:33:29 UTC

one of you mentioned touch and go opposed to resetting every rep

2018-01-18 08:33:59 UTC

I actually seem to have better form and stretch in my hamstrings when I do touch and go!

2018-01-18 08:34:30 UTC

my first reps is usually my hardest, but from there it gets far easier

2018-01-18 18:33:05 UTC

So, your first rep when you don't bounce the weight off the floor is harder then the subsequent reps when you do.... hmmm, tell us more. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

2018-01-18 19:14:29 UTC

i don't bounce it lol

2018-01-18 19:15:02 UTC

it just turns into a kind of rdl and its easier to engage my hamstrings

2018-01-18 20:16:40 UTC

So you weight nerds...where to bring the bar on my bench press? When I bring it down directly across my pecs, I feel nasty tweaking in my delts. So I usually bring it down about three inches below my nipples. I feel like that engages my chest more and my shoulders less. Is that okay?

2018-01-18 20:17:17 UTC

Like, right at the base of my sternum. @Deleted User ?

2018-01-18 20:21:28 UTC

Alan Thrall is a monster

2018-01-18 20:22:14 UTC

That's about where I go but it depends if I'm doing dbells, I go a bit higher with dumbbells

2018-01-18 20:22:32 UTC

He has several other videos. Good source for form and he's updated some of his videos as he learns better form etc.

2018-01-18 20:22:38 UTC

Aye though DB press is a bit lighter

2018-01-18 20:22:40 UTC

My form has my tris tucked in and it naturally flows to the sternum

2018-01-18 20:23:00 UTC

Granted, at highest weight that control is questionable

2018-01-18 20:23:18 UTC

I was going to say to tuck your elbows a little more to get more triceps than deltoids.

2018-01-18 20:23:22 UTC

Bench wobbles TAKE YOU TO THE TOP

2018-01-18 20:23:39 UTC

(Don't do this)

2018-01-18 20:23:53 UTC

My shoulder starts to pop when I do heavier weight. But mainly on incline.

2018-01-18 20:24:19 UTC

I usually keep my feet on the bench and my head hanging off the bench when I press @Deleted User. I heard thats the safest.

2018-01-18 20:24:28 UTC

My shoulders always wanna get involved at max, you must train them to serve and not take over

okay so it looks like he does the same thing, there's a slight arc in the path

Also, if you do have overactive shoulders I've never had a problem if I totally forced my shoulders down with some intensity. Doesn't seem to be a detriment if that's what you need to work on .

2018-01-18 20:29:30 UTC

Not pinning shoulders down can be a real risk to your rotator cuff so that's why I'm mentioning it

2018-01-18 20:30:39 UTC

@The Huwhyte Ulf - VA Ah very helpful - "elbows behind the barbell turns the exercise into more of a front shoulder raise"

2018-01-18 20:31:16 UTC

I do try to pin my shoulder blades before every set as well. Has helped isolate my chest.

2018-01-18 20:31:20 UTC

I have bad shoulders and have been tweaking things on bench press for a while to try to find the safest method

2018-01-18 20:33:36 UTC

2018-01-18 20:34:15 UTC

I've found that making sure your grip isn't too wide, keeping your wrists straight, arching your back, and your pushing shoulder blades together goes a long way

2018-01-18 20:35:07 UTC

If your shoulders are already aching, you can still do a lighter underhanded bench press until they feel better

2018-01-18 21:03:26 UTC

My set up is... grab bar with right hand, lean back and arch my back, put left hand on, push shoulderblades together, pin down shoulders. Lift and tuck elbows closer going down, slight arch of bar path forwad to sternum. Press up along same arch. I am religious about my set up and that's how I got my 410lb bench (and Sheiko programming)

2018-01-19 04:08:01 UTC

410 is fantastic. I do something very similar. Grab the bar, tuck the sholders, brace, feet flat and go 1-2" below my nipples. Always keeping my elbows below the bar and the arms tucking in to 45 degrees against the torso on the bottom. Bar has to go from directly above your shoulders to below you nipples. If it goes up and down you are hurting your shoulders. I have been benching for decades adding 10lb a year last few - injury free (thank God) for 5x340. I don't do heavy singles anymore.

2018-01-19 04:10:23 UTC

I pause banch each rep and I don't arch the back at all. I lift less weight that way but it is better to lift 30lbs less with good form and activate the same amount of muscle fibers then to put all that additional strain on joints and ligaments for no benefit. (I am looking at you above the knee rack-pullers haha)

2018-01-19 05:19:57 UTC

@shyguy Thanks for posting that 5x5 workout link. I'm starting it Monday.

2018-01-21 02:45:30 UTC

somtimes i feel like i am just putting stress on my joints and ligaments on not making any gains

2018-01-21 13:47:48 UTC

Make sure youโ€™re eating bone broth, or collagen and such. There are some good cheap gelatin supplements, bone broth is cheap. That stuff is really good for rebuilding connective tissue and join health.

2018-01-21 18:36:39 UTC

Maybe you are @Pat-MA . Especially if you are doing partial movements, use straps and so on. Partial squats will destroy your recovery and really wear out your connective tissue.

2018-01-22 02:03:30 UTC

I recently read that quarter squats can improve sprinting and vertical jump ability much better than full squats so I have been doing quarter squats because i like to play basketball and also have a bad knee if I squat about halfway down

2018-01-22 17:25:48 UTC

I do not condone partial anything when lifting

2018-01-22 17:28:00 UTC

If you do partial squats you are gonna be torn up

2018-01-22 17:28:14 UTC

And you will have bad inflammation

2018-01-24 02:43:14 UTC

Anybody have problems with cramping during squats? The last couple of weeks, ive noticed cramping basically as soon as I start my warmups. It's not so bad that its caused me to cut short a workout, and while Im no worldbeater, Im not a novice either, most of my working sets are between 365 and 430. Im not sure why this has started happening, I typically stay well hydrated and the only change ive made is more carbs before workouts

2018-01-24 19:10:05 UTC

How's your salt and potassium intake

2018-01-25 16:22:27 UTC

Who needs pre-workout when you can take a taser hit instead?

LMAO

2018-01-25 18:08:28 UTC

@Steve - NJ is that you?

2018-01-25 20:06:16 UTC

Hell no I busted my ass lifting

2018-01-25 20:06:27 UTC

Can't do that

2018-01-30 03:34:51 UTC

What do you guys think of 1 rep lifting?

2018-01-30 05:11:00 UTC

I've utilized it before on Sheiko programs

2018-01-30 05:12:17 UTC

It got me on podium both times and Westside uses it too

2018-01-30 11:36:20 UTC

I'm thinking about switching my 3 x 5 squats and deadies to 3 x 1 on account of I think it will have lower impact on my knees, which are getting sore as I increase my weight. Think it's worth a shot?

2018-01-30 11:36:37 UTC

I also do 3 x warm ups

2018-01-30 19:27:54 UTC
2018-01-30 21:18:14 UTC

What sort of warm up do you goys recommend before the 5x5 lifting routine? Currently I do nothing to warm up, just start the lifts. Is it necessary or not really? Opinions?

2018-01-30 21:21:23 UTC

@Sonic I do three warm up sets - 5 x bar, 3 x 50%, 1 x 75%

2018-01-30 21:23:28 UTC

I'd probably do more volume in sets if you're gonna do one rep

2018-01-30 21:23:34 UTC

Like 5x1

2018-01-30 21:24:10 UTC

At 85% of 1RM

2018-01-30 21:24:30 UTC

Maybe 80%

2018-01-30 21:25:44 UTC

I usually work up to singles with a high rep low weight, then 60% for 5 reps, 70% for 3, and go to singles

2018-01-30 21:26:50 UTC

@Deleted User 3 sets of which specific lift for the warm up?

2018-01-30 21:26:55 UTC

I have bad squatters elbow so I use singles and low reps to keep the inflammation down

2018-01-30 21:27:23 UTC

Or warm up before each lift?

2018-01-30 21:28:01 UTC

If squatting and deadlifting same day I only warm up once but I still follow the 60 70 80

2018-01-30 21:28:28 UTC

@Sonic I mean 3 warm up sets for each of the 3 x 5 core lifts i do. So six total sets, three warm up and three working

2018-01-30 21:28:53 UTC

Gotcha. Thank you!

2018-01-31 00:52:00 UTC

I haven't been working out, because I've been sick for the past few days. I still don't feel like I'm in the condition to do it. How long until I start losing gains? Should I at least try to do some pushups in my room?

2018-01-31 01:58:20 UTC

Focus on getting better.

2018-01-31 01:58:50 UTC

Getting enough protein is good, too.

2018-01-31 01:59:00 UTC

Protein and rest, bruh

2018-02-01 03:31:39 UTC

i have bronkaid and caffeine pills to take before I work out, should I add aspirin to the stack?

2018-02-01 03:31:42 UTC

i know that's done sometimes

2018-02-01 05:12:26 UTC

Nah aspirin isn't necessary

2018-02-01 17:13:00 UTC

Are you injured?

2018-02-01 18:59:41 UTC

40 lbs less than last time I was posting anything. Damn homelessness

2018-02-01 18:59:47 UTC

But Ayyy still the best lifting tank

2018-02-04 02:27:39 UTC

Is it good to drink caffeine before lifting?

2018-02-04 02:27:54 UTC

Will I actually get a better workout in, or will it just make me feel more energetic?

2018-02-04 02:28:29 UTC

Is there any detriments? I kind of want caffeine sometimes whether it will help me or not, but I don't want it to drag me down.

2018-02-04 06:35:51 UTC

Other than caffeine tolerance that you build up, you'll just sweat more

2018-02-04 08:18:55 UTC

If there's caffeine as an ingredient in a pre workout product or mix you make it's fine, especially from green tea. Drinking coffee before lifting is retarded.

2018-02-04 08:29:55 UTC

Why?

2018-02-05 02:43:08 UTC

Caffeine is an addictive drug, man. shouldn't have caffeine

2018-02-05 23:27:51 UTC

@Alexander Volk#7256 Beyond that being your opinion, there is nothing substantial suggesting that having a cup of coffee before you go lift is retarded.

2018-02-05 23:28:07 UTC

Unless maybe you have an incredibly weak heart that doesn't need the added strain.

2018-02-05 23:28:18 UTC

Literally nothing wrong with it whatsoever.

2018-02-05 23:29:26 UTC

To Jacob, yes, a stimulant might give you a better workout if it gets you "in the zone" so to speak. That's literally the entire point of those pre-workout mixes.

2018-02-05 23:30:12 UTC

Most generally have creatine mixes, which would be the only thing that may ACTUALLY boost your lifts, everything else is just a concentration boost.

2018-02-06 00:33:07 UTC

just do sips

https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/388502404641062924/410231402047602718/sips.jpg

2018-02-06 03:29:06 UTC

@Jacob i take ephedrine and caffeine before working out fasted. it ups your heart rate and you burn fat faster

2018-02-06 03:29:15 UTC

i work out first thing int he morning without eating though

2018-02-06 03:36:29 UTC

Anybody know of a 1" bar that can hold more than 250lbs?

2018-02-06 03:37:20 UTC

For 5x5 stronglifts program.

2018-02-06 11:22:13 UTC

@Sonic See if these guys have anything...

2018-02-06 15:33:33 UTC

Thanks I'll check it out @Deleted User

2018-02-06 19:00:22 UTC

@Sonic I would recommend the Ohio power bar. It's only $250, easy to maintain, has phenomenal knurling and integrity, and a weight capacity of like 800lbs

2018-02-06 19:00:33 UTC

I have one myself and couldn't be happier

2018-02-06 19:06:13 UTC

The Ohio power is legit. And it looks sexy as hell

2018-02-06 20:37:14 UTC

My brother has the black chrome, it looks aesthetic and is easier to maintain. I think it's like 40 or 50 dollars more though

2018-02-06 21:51:37 UTC

It is very aesthetic for sure.

2018-02-07 00:16:05 UTC

While we're talking bars. I have a bad wrist and using a curl bar kills it. So I would like another alternative. I hate to use an Olympic bar and would prefer one shorter.

2018-02-07 01:32:24 UTC

@JesseJames I think Rogue sells minies

2018-02-07 03:49:42 UTC
