on the end of my bench is a quad extention bit, I put it up completely, slip my knees under and use it as an improvised seated calve raise

2018-10-02 04:32:45 UTC  

There is a squat machine. I do actual squats in the free-weight barbell rack/cage. But I do calves in the machine, just raising up and down utilizing the elevation of the machine's foot platform as compared to the actual ground.

can't really load a bunch of weight with this method sadly

2018-10-02 04:34:26 UTC  

and i just do standing barbell calve raises

2018-10-02 04:34:48 UTC  

but you gotta balance, so can't go super heavy either

2018-10-02 04:34:56 UTC  

just my own limitations

2018-10-03 05:14:44 UTC

2018-10-07 19:22:54 UTC  

Lumberjack competition on ABC rn. Better than football. Functional and very huwyte.

2018-10-07 19:23:31 UTC  

Notice it's outsider cat ladies complaining about the gym, not the members..

2018-10-07 19:28:42 UTC  

the lady said " two lightning bolts"

2018-10-07 19:29:02 UTC

2018-10-07 19:29:23 UTC  

there are no lightning bolts in massthetics symbology

2018-10-07 19:51:54 UTC  

Not to Styx-post, but there really is a moral panic going around, and not to Goad-post, but the bluehair/pinkhats are the same as the 1980s church ladies. seeing Satan/nahseez under every bed. Even in a Castizo/Hapa-friendly Roman-LARP gym

@Deleted User clearly, gatorade will fuel the fascist resurgence in modern politics

2018-10-11 02:10:21 UTC

2018-10-13 01:25:01 UTC  

Nords are so innocent and childish. We need to protect these people

2018-10-13 11:58:39 UTC  

Yeah, Idk what's up with that. He's autistic, dude

2018-10-15 23:23:06 UTC  

Boys. I did three one leg squats in a row on my right leg yesterday, and I did a 15 second L-sit today

2018-10-15 23:53:14 UTC  

So you admit you're strengthening the left

2018-10-16 00:21:02 UTC  

Damn

2018-10-16 00:21:52 UTC  

Haha solid edit

2018-10-16 00:21:59 UTC  

That's awesome though man, congrats!

2018-10-16 00:48:20 UTC  

Thanks, homie

2018-10-16 01:01:22 UTC  

Am physically incapable of one legged squats

2018-10-16 01:02:22 UTC  

I just tried doing one

2018-10-16 01:02:25 UTC  

Yep, that's hard

2018-10-16 01:02:39 UTC  

Not so much from a strength standpoint, but keeping balance

2018-10-16 01:44:38 UTC  

Flexibility is key for them as well

2018-10-16 01:46:30 UTC  

I have horrible flexibility so that might be it

2018-10-16 01:47:28 UTC  

When I was in community college, I took a PE class and we used a machine to test our flexibility and I couldn't even reach the machine

2018-10-16 01:49:48 UTC  

Flexibility is the number one factor in being able to move around as we age

2018-10-16 01:50:05 UTC  

If you dont want to be a crippled old man, I'd start stretching regularly

2018-10-16 11:05:29 UTC  

one hour stretching session per week in addition to all of your pre-stretch workouts. I will say that when I grapple and spar with new guys who are powerful and muscular, I submit them much faster on average than I submit new guys who aren't. Their muscles, tendons, and ligaments are generally much tighter and they often have to tap to avoid injury before I even apply a submission. Again I ask, what's the point of being strong and powerful if it doesn't help you in a fight?
