Pr on deadlift today
Couldn't finish out my last set on the bench today. Disappointing. Felt kinda low energy, haven't been eating my carbs like I should be
You can also try resting a bit longer, sometimes you need that 3-5 minutes to shake out fatigue
Best post workout meal there is
Is that mead, for us burgers?
Where do you guys go to purchase your weight lifting equipment?
Some of this stuff is just absolutely bank breaking
@Trashboat I use either my colleges, my dad's or the local 24/7 I'm on a family plan for...
I have my eye on an Onnit Indian Gada Mace though! 95$, pretty pricey.
Problem is I don't have the location for that
I mean I can drive to the gym but I would rather have it in my garage
Craigslist? I had my eye on some punching bags from there.
Didn't think about aht
There's always someone who got injured and can't lift anymore. Or is moving into a smaller place.
Or gave up.
Tons of equipment on Craigslist.
Took a couple weeks off from lifting. Started back up again today and it felt incredible. The weight went down from what I ended on, but still felt awesome.
Any tips on starting to lift with no prior experience?
@Attrition in the desert There are probably other opinions from more experienced guys, but I started with the 5x5 stronglifts program. Worked great along with proper eating.
@Sonic What exactly is the 5x5 stronglifts program? Sorry, I have little to reference here.
@Sonic Based Turk 🇹🇷 I am doing his program and it is working.
Half-Sarcastically said, of course!
Lol it works!
There is nothing better than a push/pull split
💪🏻 😬 👆🏻
Yeah it could very well work for 2x per week
I would recommend 4, but you can make 2 work.
@Attrition in the desert If you have any questions at all about lifting or certain exercises or what things are, feel free to ask here or DM me. No matter how basic or dumb you think it might sound, we were all there once.
Thanks guys, I appreciate it.
Here's my autumn program.
1RM is only good for measuring dicks and making injuries.
I stand by my statement.
I do say it’s more impressive to get 3-5 reps instead of just one.
I got nowhere with 1RM
1RM is for competition
I never go above 90% in training and even then I usually stick to 70-80%
Yeah, 1RM isn't something you should train IMO
tfw dealing with a pinched nerve in lower back and a strained bicep 😎
PLS END ME
Do any of you guys with leather belts do any maintenance to keep the hide hydrated or anything?
Seems like something one ought to
@Deleted User Yes, Wetten- Saddle soap- wetten. Then a healthy helping of MINK OIL🐿
@Deleted User leather conditioner. It makes the leather super soft.
alright thanks guys
Just dont use it too often or it can ruin the leather. Once every 6 months with mink oil is more than enough
Is it true that listening to Russian hardbass adds 50lbs to your squat?
You have to be wearing a tracksuit, the hard bass flows through the stripes and massages the muscles in the leg adding about 20kg.
what If I put Adidas stripes on my belt?
what if people tell u that u look slavic?
I look anything but Slavic so
The belt counts
So do socks if they are visible
I look British as all get out but I'm a quarter Croat
Cologne. Lots of it.
The muskier the better I assume
Amouage Gold if you want to use the same cologne as Putin
This gym is sick
Strongman, pl and oly equip, champs workout here yet its still casual enough for qt's and casual lifters.
the golden ratio
Any recommendations on a lifting belt? Is it generally worth it to pay more?
I'd say it depends on what you do, a casual lifter doesn't require an incredibly thick and expensive powerlifting belt
Feel free to blast me, but I don't use my belt or straps.
I figure if I can't DL it raw, then I should't lift it.
-However, none of my lifts are particularly impressive.
I'm using a belt from now on, not that I don't think raw is good or anything, I just think it'll help me gain
I use a belt any time I'm above 80%
Got mired by a based yoked lifter wearing a Polish shirt w/ winged hussars today. Told me that I make my 315 deddies look easy (I usually lift 350 but taking it a lil easy on my back). Irish peasant genetics
@Tyler0317 *Please get this car off my legs!*
*Sure! Lemme get my chalk and belt.*
(Also, my lifts aren’t impressive either)
I Dead 275 x3, then my grip gives out and I drop the bar, lol
👆🏻315 gets me after 3-5. Gotta wrap it up.
My best is 3 sets of 350 x4.
It's been a week since I tweaked a nerve in my lower back but I'm feeling great atm.
I don't use a belt or straps either but I've been heavily considering investing in some 🤔
Doing 3 sets of 4 at 350# with no belt or straps.
Bro, that phenomenal!
Thanks man 💪🏻
Hit 585 for 2 reps today on deadlifts after squats! Hardest set of my life
So, do I absolutely need a spotter for lifting or no?
If you're just starting out, you should be lifting weight that you are comfortable with.
What beginner regimens do you recommend?
I recommend a push/pull/legs split.
Sometimes called a brosplit?
A mix of strength training and bodybuilding.
Depends on your goals.
Should I switch off between calisthenics and lifting? What are the advantages and disadvantages of both? Is one "better"?
I do sprints/jogs/stairs, an Ab vidya and a cardio lighter weight kettlebell routine on non-lifting days.
Incorporate calisthenics into each lifting session instead
Or do both each day
One in the morning and one at night
The split session strategy like that is becoming very popular and has been utilized by very successful lifters for a long time
Hit the elusive triple bodyweight deadlift last night at 615lbs
there's a line between ego lifting and really pushing yourself I find
Spines are irreplaceable
Went to my dad's house yesterday and got my weights
I competed last Saturday and won my division but lost out by 15lbs to the Lebanon national champ. Hit a 501 squat 275 bench and 506 deadlift at 154lbs
I did a weight cut for the meet but instead of the 3 lbs I planned on losing I ended up cutting 13. I’ve gained 9-10lbs of that back
I weighed in at 154lbs. I normally weigh 166 but I cut weight
All water and glycogen did it in 2 weeks was pretty simple cut
Those are crazy #s at that weight heck yeah bro
I jacked up my wrist yesterday in the gym and it's painful today. Most likely a sprain, maybe a fracture. I've got a splint on it and I've been trying to ice it whenever I can.
Even simple shit like driving or drying my hands w/ a towel hurts like hell, so I'm skeptical. I've never had a sprained wrist.
More of a sharp pain, not dull/throbbing.
what caused it?
I was doing overhead press and had just finished my last rep. I went to put the weight down and I guess my grip was fucked or I didn't have the weight over my body, because my left wrist totally gave out. Instead of letting the weight drop, I tried to stop it and yanked the fuck out of my wrist once again.
a series of unfortunate events 🤤
Love and cherish your wrists
Cause this injury is getting old
Get an MRI yet?
I think I'm going to schedule one.
There was major improvement/pain reduction the ~3 days following the injury, but it's been about the same ever since. Still bothering me, wouldn't be able to lift with it.
Get that MRI then. If something is torn, you don't want it healing improperly
@everyone The golden one hits every nail on the head here. Simple rules to getting stronger
I hope /fit/ gets a New Years comic this year.
i am lifting with a new trainer tomorrow. i hope he can teach me some good stuff
I need you guys to send me your energy. It's leg day today. 😫
Quit complaining and start lifting! Cast of the chains that bind you and act like the European man that you are! Get in there and tear those muscle fibers. If you can walk tomorrow without pain we'll all know you didnt train hard enough.
heyo I had leg day today
pretty good sess
@BigBadSaxon - ID unironically, people yelling at me give me more motivation than people cheering me on. Go figure.
It was a roll of the dice whether that would be dickish or motivating. Never know if I can go full drill sergeant with folk or not
An old man I care for fell tonight while I was working with him. He’s not huge but he’s probably about 200 lbs. got him back up and into bed safely. Thank god I was there and not one of the females who also work with him, otherwise he would’ve been in some serious shit.
Kind of a random thing to post here but I guess it’s technically lifting 💪🏻
Couldn’t do back squats today because both my knees were bugging me. Had to do leg press instead :/
I have overuse wear and tear from playing lots of basketball
Nighttime lifting is great 👌
<#388502404641062924> Can anyone offer some advice on how to avoid scuffing up my leg (about 2.5" below knee) while deadlifting? I've got quite a nasty scar there now that gets reopened and bloody every time I DL. Just for the record, I'm pretty tall and am focused on proper form so as not to destroy my back. Any advice would be appreciated. (Even if it's "man up and deal with it, you pussy") 😏
wear long socks
Man up and deal with it, you pussy.
Those scars are badges of honor.
@Sonic Specifically deadlift socks are made for just that reason! Or wear long pants. Or get blood on the bar and enjoy the pain.
"Take the pain"
Yeah I wear socks and sweats or long pants on back/pull day and I've only ever had to deal with bruises or lil scratches
Damn, I wear sweats but still rip up the leg
if it means anything to you, scraping your legs is exactly what any pl coach would say is optimal
even sheiko says so
So I ended up buying a leg press for my garage gym. Did I just waste my money?
Leg presses are useful. Just dont expect them to replace whole body exercises like squats
Yeah, I need to work on my core strength to help out with squats. I'm having a tough time going ass to grass and back up.
Stretch, my guy.
5x6 at 315 and then x2 at 405. Pretty alright day.
Nice work. I'm still in recovery after getting my vasectomy reversal. It'll be a while before I can get back in the gym.
Was that too much info?
Proud of u
Thanks big guy. 👍
Your leg looks like it hurts
Hope everyone is making good gains so far in 2019!
Hit 405 DL after herniating my L4-L5 disc a year ago. Hoping to break 500 this year
I had a minor tweak in the middle of my peak 😒
I think cause high(er) reps and improper belt placement...
ima back off for about 8 days
gauge where I stand and then try for 405, I know I have the strength now
Maybe just go a little lighter and focus on form until the tweak feels like it's gone away
my form was fine, I actually felt really good the whole time, and it didn't feel particularly heavy at all. I'm convinced it was just the culmination of doing heavy squats prior, poor belt placement, and high reps
I only felt it after the bad set
I'll edit my peak protocol to be shorter and lower rep as well
in fact I got under the bar again today and felt fine considering
but I'll focus on recovery
Hit 260 bench today
y'all just wait, 300 in no time
I'm jealous lol. Proud of you, bro. 👍
Nice dude. How long has it been taking you to move up. I know bench moves up slowly
Well, the program I wrote took me from 245 to 260 in about 3-4 months
technically 5ish but I'm hardly counting the hypertrophy block I did before hand
Barely felt it
What was the program?
I can't include it in one screenshot because the way I made it in excel (different dropdown options give different schedule information)
But it's one I made roughly based around Candito's deadlift program, mixed with a push pull legs type style
Hit 315 on squat (it's poverty I know, but progress)
I had atleast 325 in the tank as well
Hey better than I can do with these knees 😂
January.....monday.....fucking hell its packed
Guy doing shoulder press in the squat rack......is this the 9th circle?
Though OHP in the squat rack is a pretty Chad move
Theres a fat balding nerd doing karate moves with the 10 lbs dumbbells. I swear on my life
>tfw the hottest girl in the gym is working out with some skinny fat looking guy
@Mark Vandal she probably takes birth control pills tbh fam
Poisoning my fucking water supply
^^^Gotta filter that shit.
You guys heard of the Grey Skull LP program? Started it this week.. Came highly recommended from a competitive power lifter friend. I love it so far.
I do DLs for 2x5 then AMRAP instead of the single set of 5.
Similar to SS 5x5 program, but better for multiple reasons.
@ExternalPepsi Nice. That's my main goal as well. Have made good progress in every other lift except bench.
Doing my first push/pull meet in march!
I was going to do the full 3 lifts, but I developed some bad Achilles tendinitis in my left foot so heavy squats are out of the question for a while
Nice man. Do you have the full training plan laid out?
Yeah, I've my training laid out. 8weeks out right now
For someone trying to put on muscle, is it best to isolate muscle groups and work different ones each day? Like Monday - back and biceps, Tuesday - shoulders and triceps, etc. or a compound workout of bench, deadlift, and squat each session? And should I do low reps with high weight? Or medium reps (8-10) with medium or lighter weight? My daily caloric goal is 2500 but I can't seem to find foods that have high calories and are also full of protein. Usually high calories = carbs and fat. Which I know is good to have some but not too much. I need at least 90g of protein per day.
@Warren H I would say isolation is great for building muscle, have days where you work certain groups
You want to do as many reps as you can without hurting yourself, a good way to do that is by doing a good amount of weight for 3 sets of 8-10 then working your way down a few steps of 5-10 lbs each time, reps are important for endurance.
For high protein foods meat is always a solid choice, when I was starting out getting into my diet it was basically meat, veggies, and protein shakes, portioning your meals is also a good idea to keep you on track with calories/nutriebts
Also when your muscles get sore, meat will help, extra protein will help your muscles heal from all the little tears you get from lifting and you will build mass faster
@StevePines -WA thanks man. Did you mean 5-10lbs or 5-10 reps? My current lifting schedule I'm trying to stick to is 4 days a week, M-TR and then rest F/S/S to let myself recover.
Yeah definitely trying to eat more meat, eggs, veggies and so on. So long as they're not processed foods lol. Do you know a good way to count calories from homemade food? My folks cook something it can be hard to count exactly how much is in what
5-10 lbs, so like I normally start with 35lb bicep curls with dumbbells then when I get tired move to30, then 25 etc. @Warren H
Called moving down the rack
@Warren H Best I'd say is just read the labels to at least get an idea of what you're getting
There's also plenty of apps and such to calculate calories/macros
Well gents, today was my first workout post-surgery. It's been a long 6 weeks (almost 7 actually) and I definitely lost muscle mass. Starting from square one again.
Big yoked ass old dudes in the gym really make you feel like shit
