and give it time
your job will make you stronger
(i work construction)
I always go to the gym about 2 hours after work, 4-5 days a week. Eat enough carbs and take my pre workout and I'm usually good to go.
Pre workout is a blessing for you then , yeah
Take it after work
How many hours of sleep are you getting each night?
I get like 6
I try and get 8, but usually end up at 6-7
I'm making gains so it's all good
7-9. Sleep is number one factor in health, happiness, recovery, brain health
Arnold says all you need is 6 hours. "sleep faster"
granted he's probably just saying that because it sounds good
and the roids
sleep 20 hours, gym 2, eat 2
honestly it's all about sleep and diet
gym 30 minutes, eat 10 hours, sleep 10 hours, watch anime 3 hours and 30 minutes
Be sure to not squat exclusively, lel
How does that happen?
Better the pepe than the La Creatura...
I was fucking dying. Couldn't stop
and not the good kind
noticing the lack of calves too
Yeah I have started training calves, albeit on the dreaded MACHINES. Calves recover more quickly than most, IIRC
I homegym it, calves are weird training without machines
How exactly do you guys train calves? I basically just do calf raises and a calf extension machine
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
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
and i just do standing barbell calve raises
but you gotta balance, so can't go super heavy either
