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

2018-09-28 16:30:31 UTC

You can also try resting a bit longer, sometimes you need that 3-5 minutes to shake out fatigue

2018-09-29 04:48:45 UTC

Thanks

2018-10-01 03:18:34 UTC

Where do you guys go to purchase your weight lifting equipment?

2018-10-01 03:18:45 UTC

Some of this stuff is just absolutely bank breaking

2018-10-01 03:25:44 UTC

@Trashboat I use either my colleges, my dad's or the local 24/7 I'm on a family plan for...

2018-10-01 03:26:10 UTC

I have my eye on an Onnit Indian Gada Mace though! 95$, pretty pricey.

2018-10-01 03:26:12 UTC

Problem is I don't have the location for that

2018-10-01 03:26:21 UTC

I mean I can drive to the gym but I would rather have it in my garage

2018-10-01 03:26:25 UTC

Craigslist? I had my eye on some punching bags from there.

2018-10-01 03:26:31 UTC

Didn't think about aht

2018-10-01 03:26:43 UTC

There's always someone who got injured and can't lift anymore. Or is moving into a smaller place.

2018-10-01 03:26:58 UTC

Or gave up.

2018-10-02 00:32:08 UTC

Tons of equipment on Craigslist.

2018-10-02 02:03:23 UTC

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.

2018-10-02 02:06:45 UTC

Any tips on starting to lift with no prior experience?

2018-10-02 02:24:19 UTC

@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.

2018-10-02 02:25:08 UTC

@Sonic What exactly is the 5x5 stronglifts program? Sorry, I have little to reference here.

2018-10-02 02:26:20 UTC
2018-10-02 02:29:47 UTC

Thanks!

2018-10-02 03:33:46 UTC

2018-10-02 03:34:05 UTC

Half-Sarcastically said, of course!

2018-10-02 03:35:56 UTC

Lol it works!

2018-10-02 03:36:49 UTC

It has!

2018-10-02 13:32:10 UTC

There is nothing better than a push/pull split

2018-10-02 13:38:59 UTC

@Rogue recommended for 2x per week lifting?

2018-10-02 16:37:27 UTC

Yeah it could very well work for 2x per week

2018-10-02 16:37:58 UTC

I would recommend 4, but you can make 2 work.

2018-10-10 00:50:29 UTC

@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.

2018-10-10 03:52:58 UTC

Thanks guys, I appreciate it.

1RM is only good for measuring dicks and making injuries.

2018-10-11 15:47:34 UTC

disavow

2018-10-11 15:49:01 UTC

I stand by my statement.

2018-10-11 15:51:08 UTC

I do say itโ€™s more impressive to get 3-5 reps instead of just one.

2018-10-11 16:04:48 UTC

I got nowhere with 1RM

2018-10-11 16:05:15 UTC

1RM is for competition

2018-10-11 16:05:43 UTC

I never go above 90% in training and even then I usually stick to 70-80%

2018-10-11 16:26:13 UTC

Yeah, 1RM isn't something you should train IMO

Do any of you guys with leather belts do any maintenance to keep the hide hydrated or anything?

2018-10-12 05:08:10 UTC

Seems like something one ought to

2018-10-12 07:29:56 UTC

@Deleted User Yes, Wetten- Saddle soap- wetten. Then a healthy helping of MINK OIL๐Ÿฟ

2018-10-12 10:53:58 UTC

@Deleted User I use leather conditioner

2018-10-12 18:58:02 UTC

@Deleted User leather conditioner. It makes the leather super soft.

https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/388502404641062924/500381652644528129/image0.png

2018-10-12 19:08:56 UTC

alright thanks guys

2018-10-13 03:43:48 UTC

Just dont use it too often or it can ruin the leather. Once every 6 months with mink oil is more than enough

2018-10-13 16:22:05 UTC

Is it true that listening to Russian hardbass adds 50lbs to your squat?

2018-10-13 16:42:19 UTC

You have to be wearing a tracksuit, the hard bass flows through the stripes and massages the muscles in the leg adding about 20kg.

2018-10-13 17:06:28 UTC

what If I put Adidas stripes on my belt?

2018-10-13 17:09:51 UTC

what if people tell u that u look slavic?

2018-10-13 17:30:46 UTC

I look anything but Slavic so

2018-10-13 17:33:01 UTC

The belt counts

2018-10-13 17:33:09 UTC

So do socks if they are visible

2018-10-13 17:34:16 UTC

2018-10-17 02:22:06 UTC

Nice

2018-10-18 00:36:03 UTC

Any recommendations on a lifting belt? Is it generally worth it to pay more?

2018-10-18 00:53:14 UTC

I'd say it depends on what you do, a casual lifter doesn't require an incredibly thick and expensive powerlifting belt

2018-10-18 22:13:29 UTC

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.

2018-10-18 22:14:31 UTC

-However, none of my lifts are particularly impressive.

2018-10-18 22:19:49 UTC

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

2018-10-18 22:46:01 UTC

I use a belt any time I'm above 80%

2018-10-18 23:58:04 UTC

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

2018-10-19 00:29:05 UTC

@Tyler0317 *Please get this car off my legs!*
*Sure! Lemme get my chalk and belt.*

2018-10-19 00:29:40 UTC

(Also, my lifts arenโ€™t impressive either)

2018-10-19 00:33:23 UTC

@Rogue Respect.

I Dead 275 x3, then my grip gives out and I drop the bar, lol

2018-10-19 00:34:27 UTC

๐Ÿ‘†๐Ÿป315 gets me after 3-5. Gotta wrap it up.

2018-10-19 00:37:16 UTC

Thanks brother

2018-10-19 00:37:36 UTC

My best is 3 sets of 350 x4.

2018-10-19 00:38:25 UTC

It's been a week since I tweaked a nerve in my lower back but I'm feeling great atm.

2018-10-19 00:39:48 UTC

I don't use a belt or straps either but I've been heavily considering investing in some ๐Ÿค”

2018-10-19 00:41:12 UTC

Doing 3 sets of 4 at 350# with no belt or straps.

Bro, that phenomenal!

Hit 585 for 2 reps today on deadlifts after squats! Hardest set of my life

2018-10-19 23:11:39 UTC

Hell yeah!

2018-10-20 03:00:57 UTC

Impressive!

2018-10-21 20:05:28 UTC

So, do I absolutely need a spotter for lifting or no?

2018-10-21 20:15:25 UTC

No?

2018-10-21 20:18:43 UTC

If you're just starting out, you should be lifting weight that you are comfortable with.

2018-10-21 20:19:09 UTC

What beginner regimens do you recommend?

2018-10-21 20:19:30 UTC

I recommend a push/pull/legs split.

2018-10-21 20:19:50 UTC

Sometimes called a brosplit?

2018-10-21 20:20:01 UTC

A mix of strength training and bodybuilding.

2018-10-21 20:21:43 UTC

Depends on your goals.

2018-10-22 23:54:35 UTC

Should I switch off between calisthenics and lifting? What are the advantages and disadvantages of both? Is one "better"?

2018-10-23 00:28:58 UTC

I do sprints/jogs/stairs, an Ab vidya and a cardio lighter weight kettlebell routine on non-lifting days.

2018-10-23 01:04:45 UTC

Incorporate calisthenics into each lifting session instead

2018-10-23 01:04:52 UTC

Or do both each day

2018-10-23 01:05:12 UTC

One in the morning and one at night

2018-10-23 01:05:44 UTC

The split session strategy like that is becoming very popular and has been utilized by very successful lifters for a long time

2018-10-27 18:49:22 UTC

Hit the elusive triple bodyweight deadlift last night at 615lbs

@Trashboat No ego lifting, bruh.

Like @Rogue said, lift what you can do safely.

2018-10-29 23:24:14 UTC

there's a line between ego lifting and really pushing yourself I find

@Trashboat for beginners, start blasting Tren.

2018-10-31 15:38:43 UTC

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

2018-10-31 15:39:49 UTC

I did a weight cut for the meet but instead of the 3 lbs I planned on losing I ended up cutting 13. Iโ€™ve gained 9-10lbs of that back

2018-10-31 16:37:38 UTC

@peytonT Stellar!

2018-11-01 01:24:48 UTC

@peytonT Wait, you weigh 154lbs?

2018-11-01 01:58:16 UTC

I weighed in at 154lbs. I normally weigh 166 but I cut weight

2018-11-01 01:58:39 UTC

All water and glycogen did it in 2 weeks was pretty simple cut

2018-11-02 01:05:09 UTC

Those are crazy #s at that weight heck yeah bro

2018-11-07 17:33:10 UTC

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.

2018-11-07 17:33:49 UTC

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.

2018-11-07 17:34:13 UTC

More of a sharp pain, not dull/throbbing.

2018-11-07 17:37:44 UTC

what caused it?

2018-11-07 17:51:40 UTC

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.

2018-11-13 17:14:11 UTC

Get an MRI yet?

2018-11-13 17:17:34 UTC

No.

2018-11-13 17:17:38 UTC

I think I'm going to schedule one.

2018-11-13 17:18:18 UTC

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.

2018-11-14 00:36:49 UTC

Get that MRI then. If something is torn, you don't want it healing improperly

2018-11-14 05:18:07 UTC

@Rogue I second @Nick-NJ . My right pinky finger is crooked and has a knuckle double the size it should be, because I was too stubborn to go to the doctor.

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.

@BigBadSaxon - ID unironically, people yelling at me give me more motivation than people cheering me on. Go figure.

2018-12-05 03:47:41 UTC

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

2018-12-05 04:13:16 UTC

An old man I care for fell tonight while I was working with him. Heโ€™s not huge but heโ€™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 wouldโ€™ve been in some serious shit.

<#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") ๐Ÿ˜

2018-12-11 03:24:26 UTC

wear long socks

@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"

2018-12-11 18:03:07 UTC

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

2018-12-11 19:20:19 UTC

Damn, I wear sweats but still rip up the leg

2018-12-11 19:31:55 UTC

if it means anything to you, scraping your legs is exactly what any pl coach would say is optimal

2018-12-11 19:36:52 UTC

even sheiko says so

2018-12-15 19:41:28 UTC

So I ended up buying a leg press for my garage gym. Did I just waste my money?

2018-12-15 20:29:25 UTC

Leg presses are useful. Just dont expect them to replace whole body exercises like squats

2018-12-15 21:42:10 UTC

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.

2018-12-18 23:18:22 UTC

Stretch, my guy.

5x6 at 315 and then x2 at 405. Pretty alright day.

2018-12-27 00:29:03 UTC

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.

2018-12-27 00:29:31 UTC

Was that too much info?

2018-12-27 00:34:08 UTC

Proud of u

2018-12-27 02:25:01 UTC

Thanks big guy. ๐Ÿ‘

2018-12-27 02:25:38 UTC

Your leg looks like it hurts

2019-01-07 13:53:28 UTC

Hope everyone is making good gains so far in 2019!

2019-01-07 14:48:03 UTC

Hit 405 DL after herniating my L4-L5 disc a year ago. Hoping to break 500 this year

2019-01-07 22:26:45 UTC

I had a minor tweak in the middle of my peak ๐Ÿ˜’

2019-01-07 22:27:15 UTC

I think cause high(er) reps and improper belt placement...

2019-01-07 22:27:27 UTC

ima back off for about 8 days

2019-01-07 22:28:04 UTC

gauge where I stand and then try for 405, I know I have the strength now

2019-01-07 22:45:38 UTC

Maybe just go a little lighter and focus on form until the tweak feels like it's gone away

2019-01-07 23:23:09 UTC

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

2019-01-07 23:23:58 UTC

I only felt it after the bad set

2019-01-07 23:24:38 UTC

I'll edit my peak protocol to be shorter and lower rep as well

2019-01-07 23:25:54 UTC

in fact I got under the bar again today and felt fine considering

2019-01-07 23:26:06 UTC

but I'll focus on recovery

2019-01-08 02:43:40 UTC

Glad to hear that the gains are coming @Steve - NJ
And sorry to hear that @Deleted User, hope you have a speedy recovery (although it doesn't sound too serioud)

2019-01-11 20:53:36 UTC

Hit 260 bench today

2019-01-11 20:54:05 UTC

y'all just wait, 300 in no time

2019-01-11 23:36:20 UTC

I'm jealous lol. Proud of you, bro. ๐Ÿ‘

2019-01-12 20:11:03 UTC

Nice dude. How long has it been taking you to move up. I know bench moves up slowly

2019-01-13 03:42:10 UTC

Well, the program I wrote took me from 245 to 260 in about 3-4 months

2019-01-13 03:43:17 UTC

technically 5ish but I'm hardly counting the hypertrophy block I did before hand

2019-01-13 03:43:27 UTC

Barely felt it

2019-01-13 06:40:27 UTC

What was the program?

2019-01-13 18:48:58 UTC

I can't include it in one screenshot because the way I made it in excel (different dropdown options give different schedule information)

2019-01-13 18:49:51 UTC

But it's one I made roughly based around Candito's deadlift program, mixed with a push pull legs type style

2019-01-14 20:46:49 UTC

Hit 315 on squat (it's poverty I know, but progress)

2019-01-14 20:47:16 UTC

I had atleast 325 in the tank as well

2019-01-14 21:13:52 UTC

Hey better than I can do with these knees ๐Ÿ˜‚

2019-01-14 21:17:38 UTC
2019-01-14 23:16:52 UTC

January.....monday.....fucking hell its packed

2019-01-14 23:17:21 UTC

Guy doing shoulder press in the squat rack......is this the 9th circle?

2019-01-14 23:17:56 UTC

@Mark Vandal New year's resolutioners ๐Ÿคข

2019-01-14 23:18:11 UTC

Though OHP in the squat rack is a pretty Chad move

2019-01-14 23:51:45 UTC

Theres a fat balding nerd doing karate moves with the 10 lbs dumbbells. I swear on my life

2019-01-15 00:34:41 UTC

2019-01-18 16:43:45 UTC

Poisoning my fucking water supply

2019-01-18 16:53:19 UTC

^^^Gotta filter that shit.

2019-01-19 05:36:08 UTC

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.

2019-01-19 05:39:37 UTC

I do DLs for 2x5 then AMRAP instead of the single set of 5.

2019-01-19 05:41:02 UTC

Similar to SS 5x5 program, but better for multiple reasons.

2019-01-19 05:44:34 UTC

@Sonic it got my bench up so it must be good.

2019-01-19 05:55:24 UTC

@ExternalPepsi Nice. That's my main goal as well. Have made good progress in every other lift except bench.

2019-01-21 21:55:52 UTC

Doing my first push/pull meet in march!

2019-01-21 21:56:32 UTC

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

2019-01-22 02:30:06 UTC

Nice man. Do you have the full training plan laid out?

2019-01-22 11:28:35 UTC

Yeah, I've my training laid out. 8weeks out right now

2019-01-28 19:10:08 UTC

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.

2019-01-28 19:22:53 UTC

@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

2019-01-28 19:23:42 UTC

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

2019-01-28 21:26:44 UTC

@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

2019-01-28 21:28:06 UTC

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

2019-01-28 21:28:12 UTC

Called moving down the rack

2019-01-28 21:33:09 UTC

@Warren H Best I'd say is just read the labels to at least get an idea of what you're getting

2019-01-28 21:34:33 UTC

There's also plenty of apps and such to calculate calories/macros

2019-01-29 02:25:31 UTC

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.

2019-02-02 01:07:57 UTC

Big yoked ass old dudes in the gym really make you feel like shit
