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
@Deleted User buy either SBD, STrong, or Rehband knee sleeves.
If you buy the cheap shit, it will do a shit job and won't last very long.
I can usually tell by how snug the fit is and by the thickness of the sleeve
The best sleeves are all neoprene and are labelled in terms of whether they go on the right or left knee
@Deleted User do you experience a lot of knee valgus when squatting?
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
Got my powerlifting meet tomorrow, boys. Pls pray to The Golden One and Rich Piana for me <:onion:390756048656662528> <:onion:390756048656662528>
@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
I would highly recommend cutting your volume in half and just doubling your lift frequency
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.
Thank you FitnessFuhrer. Trying to hit 518/352/601 in squat, bench, and deadlift respectively.
Yessir. I'll be repping my identity evropa shirt under the singlet
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.
Still finished with a super easy 568 second attempt. Will post videos later tonight
Yeah :l still hit a 70lbs total PR of 1440 so I am a happy goy. I'll save that 600 for next time
Thanks guys. @Alfred-22 I'm 21 and weigh about 203lbs
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.
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.
Alan Thrall and Mark Rippetoe have good instructional videos which give a much more nuanced explanation
I used to love doing breathing weighted planks at the end of my squat/deadlift day
@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
All those bicep curls are paying off for my lanky arms 💪
Other than caffeine tolerance that you build up, you'll just sweat more
@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
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
@BigBadSaxon - ID well you've got me on bench for sure, bro. What fed do you compete?
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
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
I like to implement 3 count pause reps or tempo bench after my main sets to address that
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
Yeah, might help if you used oly shoes, especially since I'm assuming you squat high bar
Squat would probably be side, hip level angle. Bench would be directly in front and right above imo
@NuclearReactionary gib more info. How much do you weigh? How much are you lifting? What program are you following if any
Oosh, that is a whole lot of volume and exercises. Why not pick 4 or 5 of your favorite and just work those harder?
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
Survived and hit a nice overhead press volume PR!
595 deadlift PR after squats today, boys. 605 next week
High bar vs low bar will be the end of the server
Whomst going to the conference and wants to get a lift in?
And I always use a belt for those, especially if I'm going heavy
Yes, start out on a 5x5 program. Preferably stronglifts or starting strength
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. 🇫
Yeah 320 for 10 is tough to calculate, but what he said ^
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.
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
@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.
@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
Took my straight leg brace off today and it sucked to see how much my right leg has atrophied. Only 5 more weeks to go 😬
Thanks, Doc said brace only needs to stay on for 3 more weeks!
Trust me,I'll be patient. I'm enjoying benching 4x a week.
Just brought my dad to the gym with me. We had a very wholesome lifting sesh making fun of the gym thots running around in their underwear
Tbh 1rm calculators are only accurate when inputting your 4-6rep maxes
Any less and they under shoot, any more and they overshoot it
Just got the okay from the ortho to take the brace off 💪
Don't worry, I'll only be hitting single leg step up PRs for the time being
225 for 4x8 on front squats and 405 for 4x8 on deadlifts today with almost no pain. Tore my mcl and pcl 3 months ago
Thanks @@Pat-MA At this point I really just need to make sure to slow my descent on squats and make sure my knees aren't caving in
@Reinhard Wolff have you tried using knee sleeves?
Might even be worth posting a video on the form check channel. It's hard to diagnose without seeing the squat
@Whitelash look up vertical dieting by Stan Efferding
The lifting equivalent of Anita Sarkesian and her bunch
Depends. If you're sitting in a cubicle all day I would say go for 5-6x a week..if you work a physical demanding job then just stick with essential lifts at 4x a week
Need more nagging wife hotmic
Go speak yer Mexican elsewhere
NJ beach trip next Saturday, yall
In a world of black pills, be a Wayne
"I don't think it can get possibly worse than what we have right now."
Sounds like a normal occurrence here
Milk and whey ptein shakes*
Only IE bodybuilders can drink pitchers of beers at meetups. Like Arnold Schwarzenegger would after workouts
Putting up a squat rack in the basement today, borthers
Spent the whole day emptying out the basement and assembling the new rack today. Will break it in tomorrow with some benching
Reverse curls with a slow eccentric are pretty damn good
When I take pre workout I just sweat profusely lol
Idk, don't really use caffeine either so maybe that's why
Titan fitness half rack. My brother and I got it on Craigslist for $225, I think it sells for $400 otherwise @Fox
Brandon Allen is the new bloatmaxx king of the altright
But I mean totenkopf on your hand and 88 tattooed on your stomach aren't the best optics
Perks of being the last apprentice on the job
Also have some 500 in a box under all the rolls 👌 👏 👏 💯
Mostly 10, but I still have 300lbs of Mc 12/3 that I couldn't fit in here
Lol I have plenty now @Deleted User
Actually yeah, the spools in my trunk are #6
Chest aesthetics are super genetic. Just stick to bench and dumbbell flies tbh
You can try out decline press, but in most cases you get less of a chest workout and much more of a triceps workout
Just got put on a solar job. My journeyman wasn't kidding...shit sucks
But it's better than no work
Heat index was 102
@here if any of you guys experience knee pain when squatting, try substituting regular squats with Bulgarian split squats.
I've been doing it for the past 5 weeks and I've seen noticeably more leg growth than from when I was just squatting
@Pat-MA I wouldn't make the switch unless the pain was unbearable, but you'll definitely benefit from using split squats as an accessory!
I'm working with another red pilled apprentice and that's our plan
Last year they had our apprentoces go door to door and ask people if they were voting for Hillary. None of the apprentices actually did it
@Steve - NJ and I got a solid lifting sesh at the Brick house today
@Caboose satisfaction is the death of desire...hatebreed's best album
@Wood-Ape - OK/MN dealing with heavy weights is a skill in itself. If you have been doing volume work like 5s most of the time and have never tried going heavier with lower reps, then it's certainly going to take a bit for your body to get used to that extra intensity. It would be one thing if you tried hitting g a heavy triple..but hitting a 1rm for the first time is tough physically and mentally since you aren't acclimated to it yet.
@John O - I've heard stories but haven't witnessed any as of yet
Hit 585 for 2 reps today on deadlifts after squats! Hardest set of my life
Rpe 10 sets won't look pretty. I did this after 4 sets of squats and 3 sets ascending deadlifts, so fatigue was definitely there. But I've always found that my deadlift was a lot stronger when I kept my hips high and loaded my glutes and back with the weight.
A lot of it has to do with proportions. An individual with long femurs and a short torso is going to have a more verticle back while an individual with short femurs and a long torso is going to benefit from being more upright.
Just gotta find what works for you.
Hit the elusive triple bodyweight deadlift last night at 615lbs
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
Hope everyone is making good gains so far in 2019!
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
Yeah, I've my training laid out. 8weeks out right now
