2018-10-17 01:11:18 UTC

2018-10-17 01:11:27 UTC  

I can't really blame him

2018-10-17 01:11:43 UTC  

dude has a son now, another kid on the way and millions of dollars to sit on...

2018-10-17 01:12:05 UTC  

a clothing brand, his own whiskey and a crazy amount of sponsorships, etc. etc.

2018-10-17 01:12:24 UTC  

Khabib fight gave him a ton of opportunity to advertise

As a novice lifter should you see 5 pound jump coming back to a compound movement after a killer lift from 2 days ago? Or is that asking too much?

2018-10-17 16:46:58 UTC  

I'm just asking because I seem to be not improving as fast as I'd like and I think it could be because I'm not getting enough calories or getting the proper nutrition. Not sure though

2018-10-17 16:48:47 UTC  

Your progression should be steady, you shouldn't be throwing on another 5 lbs whenever you feel like - ideally. If you aren't seeing progression, it's likely not enough food, poor diet, not enough sleep, etc.

2018-10-17 16:50:07 UTC  

Fixed dat typo tho

2018-10-17 16:50:53 UTC  

I've been trying to up the protein and eat more lately so hopefully that helps out

2018-10-17 16:50:56 UTC  

And some people naturally progress at certain lifts slower than others. It just depends.

2018-10-17 16:53:04 UTC  

It just seems like I can't get to 3 plates on squats. Makes me unmotivated as all hell. Feels bad man

2018-10-17 16:53:51 UTC  

Might just be an upper body gym bro

2018-10-17 17:35:11 UTC  

@Felix 3 plates squat is pretty gnarly bro

2018-10-17 17:35:17 UTC  

Gotta work for it

2018-10-17 18:33:43 UTC  

I've been squating 6sets of 4 then been doing weighted lunges. Probably should do some more deadlift work.

2018-10-17 21:22:56 UTC  

At what point in the lift are you getting stuck?

2018-10-18 05:16:19 UTC  

Had MRI yesterday and doctor cleared me for lifting and running after two weeks of rest. Returned to the gym and set weights at what I had a month ago. A setback but I am so happy I could keep progressing. We're all gonna make it.

i’m going to switch from bike to stairmaster tomorrow

2018-10-24 23:04:50 UTC  

I have trouble with pull ups on account of my height (arm length) and weight. After two months serious lifting I can't even do one with good form. I noticed today my gym has a weight-assisted pull-up/dip machine. I'm doing to ditch dumbbell tricep kick backs and lat pull down (my form sucks) for use on this machine instead, and progressively lower counter-weight aide until I'm doing real pull-ups/dips.

2018-10-24 23:11:06 UTC  

Good plan

2018-10-24 23:11:25 UTC  

I worked my way up with that back in the day

2018-10-24 23:39:39 UTC
