Dude stop

Just secured an electrician apprenticeship for this winter with my local IBEW

Haha I'll have to see if there is any correlation to shocking myself and my strength increasing

I'm super excited though since I've been shitting the last 3.5 years finishing up my management degree

Thanks fam

With a side of onion juice, right?

2017-12-09 22:20:27 UTC [Fitness #general]  

@Deleted User buy either SBD, STrong, or Rehband knee sleeves.

2017-12-09 22:20:58 UTC [Fitness #general]  

If you buy the cheap shit, it will do a shit job and won't last very long.

2017-12-09 22:41:47 UTC [Fitness #general]  

I can usually tell by how snug the fit is and by the thickness of the sleeve

2017-12-09 22:42:30 UTC [Fitness #general]  

The best sleeves are all neoprene and are labelled in terms of whether they go on the right or left knee

2017-12-10 01:47:12 UTC [Fitness #general]  

@Deleted User do you experience a lot of knee valgus when squatting?

2017-12-10 03:11:52 UTC [Fitness #general]  

It's very common depending on your skeletal structure. I'm prone to valgus when squatting, and it's the main culprit of my knee pain

2017-12-10 19:10:18 UTC [Fitness #general]  

Get that natural creatine with red meat boyyy

2017-12-16 02:56:44 UTC [Fitness #lifting]  

Congrats breh

2017-12-17 01:03:51 UTC [Fitness #lifting]  

Got my powerlifting meet tomorrow, boys. Pls pray to The Golden One and Rich Piana for me <:onion:390756048656662528> <:onion:390756048656662528>

2017-12-17 01:19:03 UTC [Fitness #general]  

@Alfred-22 waaaaaaaay too much volume in my opinion. It's going to be really hard for you to progressively add weight on your compound lifts doing 10x10 reps

2017-12-17 01:19:49 UTC [Fitness #general]  

I would highly recommend cutting your volume in half and just doubling your lift frequency

2017-12-17 01:21:47 UTC [Fitness #general]  

I would still deadlift on squat day since it is a posterior chain dominant lift so it works perfectly in conjunction with squats, but 10x10 on squats AND deads is asking for an injury.

2017-12-17 01:22:45 UTC [Fitness #lifting]  

Thank you FitnessFuhrer. Trying to hit 518/352/601 in squat, bench, and deadlift respectively.

2017-12-17 03:21:06 UTC [Fitness #lifting]  

Yessir. I'll be repping my identity evropa shirt under the singlet

2017-12-17 11:37:25 UTC [Fitness #lifting]  


2017-12-17 21:10:56 UTC [Fitness #lifting]  

3/3 on squats. Hit 518!

2017-12-17 21:11:00 UTC [Fitness #lifting]  

Onto bench now

2017-12-17 22:07:38 UTC [Fitness #lifting]  

353 deadlift, went 3/3

2017-12-17 22:43:18 UTC [Fitness #lifting]  

Yeah haha my bad.

2017-12-17 22:43:22 UTC [Fitness #lifting]  

Onto deadlifts now

2017-12-18 00:00:42 UTC [Fitness #lifting]  

Welp fam, I hit 590 on my final attempt and locked it out but there was some baby powder left on the bar so my hand slipped and I dropped the bar.

2017-12-18 00:01:13 UTC [Fitness #lifting]  

Still finished with a super easy 568 second attempt. Will post videos later tonight

2017-12-18 01:11:10 UTC [Fitness #lifting]  

Yeah :l still hit a 70lbs total PR of 1440 so I am a happy goy. I'll save that 600 for next time

2017-12-18 01:18:31 UTC [Fitness #lifting]  

Thanks @Deleted User !

2017-12-18 01:53:09 UTC [Fitness #lifting]  

Thanks guys. @Alfred-22 I'm 21 and weigh about 203lbs

2017-12-18 03:07:18 UTC [Fitness #lifting]  

Thank you brothers!

2017-12-18 22:45:56 UTC [Fitness #lifting]  

Thanks guys

2017-12-25 23:44:17 UTC [Fitness #general]  

Those are some high quality shoes m8

2017-12-31 18:11:28 UTC [Fitness #general]  


2018-01-09 01:50:38 UTC [Fitness #lifting]  

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 [Fitness #lifting]  

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 [Fitness #lifting]  

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

2018-01-11 03:41:44 UTC [Fitness #nutrition]  

Whey contains hardly any estrogen at all...

2018-01-15 19:08:06 UTC [Fitness #general]  

Honestly used to be me

2018-01-15 19:11:20 UTC [Fitness #lifting]  

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

2018-01-15 19:12:04 UTC [Fitness #lifting]  

But I hear ab wheel is the way to go

2018-01-17 20:08:21 UTC [Fitness #lifting]  

@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

2018-02-01 17:13:00 UTC [Fitness #lifting]  

Are you injured?

2018-02-03 14:47:37 UTC [Fitness #oc]

2018-02-03 14:48:16 UTC [Fitness #oc]  

All those bicep curls are paying off for my lanky arms ๐Ÿ’ช

2018-02-04 06:35:51 UTC [Fitness #lifting]  

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

2018-02-06 19:00:22 UTC [Fitness #lifting]  

@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 [Fitness #lifting]  

I have one myself and couldn't be happier

2018-02-06 20:37:14 UTC [Fitness #lifting]  

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

2018-02-08 01:35:25 UTC [Fitness #lifting]  

OHP master race

2018-02-08 01:36:51 UTC [Fitness #oc]  

@BigBadSaxon - ID well you've got me on bench for sure, bro. What fed do you compete?

2018-02-08 03:58:20 UTC [Fitness #oc]  

Nice, I've been competing in USAPL

2018-02-09 00:51:39 UTC [Fitness #oc]  

Yes sir USAPL drug tests

2018-02-12 23:32:11 UTC [Fitness #general]  

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

2018-02-16 14:16:34 UTC [Fitness #nutrition]  

Hello m8

2018-02-16 23:13:00 UTC [Fitness #form-check]  

Squats look just about perfect to me. Your bar path and depth look good. I honestly don't see any butt wink either.
Bench looked good as well. I prefer to plant my heels on the ground when I bench since it provides for a more stable trunk and better potential leg drive but if you like keeping your heels up and the federation you're lifting in allows it, keep it up. The only critique I can give on bench is that it looks like you loose a bit of tightness on your bench when you pause (it's not bad by any means though). @peytonT

2018-02-16 23:13:57 UTC [Fitness #form-check]  

I like to implement 3 count pause reps or tempo bench after my main sets to address that

2018-02-20 01:30:49 UTC [Fitness #form-check]  

Hips look good but watch out for your knees. They are going soft at the lock out and even though it's super minimal, you might get red lighted at a meet depending on the judge

2018-02-20 05:49:59 UTC [Fitness #form-check]  

Uspa will still call you on that

2018-02-22 00:13:21 UTC [Fitness #form-check]  

Yeah, might help if you used oly shoes, especially since I'm assuming you squat high bar

2018-02-22 03:55:47 UTC [Fitness #general]  

Good stuff m8

2018-02-22 17:36:18 UTC [Fitness #form-check]  

Squat would probably be side, hip level angle. Bench would be directly in front and right above imo

2018-02-22 17:48:59 UTC [Fitness #lifting]  

Leg dayyyy

2018-02-22 17:49:59 UTC [Fitness #general]  

@peytonT yessir

2018-02-22 17:53:09 UTC [Fitness #general]  

@NuclearReactionary gib more info. How much do you weigh? How much are you lifting? What program are you following if any

2018-02-28 14:45:48 UTC [Fitness #lifting]  

Oosh, that is a whole lot of volume and exercises. Why not pick 4 or 5 of your favorite and just work those harder?

2018-03-01 15:11:37 UTC [Fitness #lifting]  

Heavy bench day today calls for 800mg of Ibuprofen so that my forearm tendinitis doesn't make me drop the bar. Need to survive this so that I can make it to the conference next week

2018-03-01 19:34:54 UTC [Fitness #lifting]  

Survived and hit a nice overhead press volume PR!

2018-03-01 19:35:01 UTC [Fitness #lifting]  
2018-03-02 23:17:45 UTC [Fitness #lifting]  

595 deadlift PR after squats today, boys. 605 next week

2018-03-03 07:59:25 UTC [Fitness #general]  


2018-03-03 07:59:31 UTC [Fitness #general]

Ivan kno

2018-03-03 08:05:39 UTC [Fitness #lifting]  

@Suomi Stronk a whole week of DOMS?

2018-03-03 08:06:17 UTC [Fitness #oc]  

Mirin' obliques, my guy

2018-03-05 02:11:45 UTC [Fitness #general]  

I'd be down

2018-03-05 02:11:53 UTC [Fitness #general]  

Oh gawd

2018-03-05 02:12:07 UTC [Fitness #general]  

High bar vs low bar will be the end of the server

2018-03-05 18:38:50 UTC [Fitness #general]  

Whomst going to the conference and wants to get a lift in?

2018-03-05 19:11:56 UTC [Fitness #general]  


2018-03-06 04:07:59 UTC [Fitness #lifting]  


2018-03-06 04:18:54 UTC [Fitness #lifting]  

When are you planning on competing next?

2018-03-06 22:39:16 UTC [Fitness #lifting]  

13mm or bust

2018-03-07 00:29:01 UTC [Fitness #lifting]  

Love me some OHpress

2018-03-07 00:29:20 UTC [Fitness #lifting]  

And I always use a belt for those, especially if I'm going heavy

2018-03-19 03:40:49 UTC [Fitness #oc]  

Looking thick, solid, tight borther

2018-03-23 22:32:01 UTC [Fitness #lifting]  

Yes, start out on a 5x5 program. Preferably stronglifts or starting strength

2018-04-04 03:41:48 UTC [Fitness #lifting]  

Congrats @Deleted User

2018-04-12 00:44:01 UTC [Fitness #general]  

Ab rollouts > planks

2018-04-15 21:40:18 UTC [Fitness #lifting]  

All of the essentials^

2018-04-23 23:50:25 UTC [Fitness #lifting]  

Fucked up my knee the other day and hyperextendeded it real badly. Getting an MRI Wednesday but it looks like I'll be benching 4x a week for the foreseeable future. ๐Ÿ‡ซ

2018-05-01 03:15:30 UTC [Fitness #lifting]  

Yeah 320 for 10 is tough to calculate, but what he said ^

2018-05-03 22:15:56 UTC [Fitness #lifting]  

Second week of only benching and upper body. The doc said I tore my mcl and pcl so I'm in a straight leg brace until further notice.

2018-05-03 22:16:38 UTC [Fitness #lifting]  

I guess I never really used much leg drive though, because benching today wasn't much harder even though I had to keep my legs straight out the whole time

2018-05-04 00:31:27 UTC [Fitness #lifting]  

@Deleted User Wrestling a buddy of mine. I got him to tap out but at the expense of my knee hyper extending to the right.

2018-05-04 00:32:13 UTC [Fitness #lifting]  

@JesseJames hopefully man. Since bench is all I'm focusing on, I'm trying to hit the big 4 plate PR by the end of summer once this heals
