I'm so disappointed in myself today. Had all the time in the world to go lift, but I let myself get too comfortable and next thing I know it's night time

2018-09-04 01:40:42 UTC  

I'm at the point I'm going to just make a set schedule to go by and will follow it without excuse

2018-09-04 01:42:04 UTC  

I mean

2018-09-04 01:42:09 UTC  

how bad do you want it?

2018-09-04 01:48:50 UTC  

Unfortunately, a hectic work life added with school has left me without a lot of energy in what little free time I do have. But that's no excuse, and it's just a mental barrier I have to get over.

2018-09-04 01:49:03 UTC  

I'm just happy I'm back to eating clean again

2018-09-04 01:49:07 UTC  

Feels so much better

2018-09-04 01:51:03 UTC  

eh I wouldn't sweat it too much

2018-09-04 01:51:25 UTC  

recovery is almost more important than the actual lifting itself

2018-09-04 01:52:35 UTC  

Funny enough, working out tends to be my stress reliever, so I'm almost more uptight with the days of I've had

2018-09-04 01:53:26 UTC  

Lifting and MMA is therapeutic

2018-09-04 01:53:52 UTC  

I'm so glad I've found these things lol

2018-09-04 01:56:18 UTC  

I really need to pick up BJJ here

2018-09-04 01:56:33 UTC  

Did some very mock fighting during the warrior dash and I want to get into it

2018-09-04 01:57:32 UTC  

All I do is spar with IE folks and practice on my heavy bag

2018-09-04 01:59:00 UTC  

I'm not huge on bjj but I know @Deleted User knows a thing or two

2018-09-04 02:00:12 UTC  

Oh yeah, I wrestled around with the old man this summer

2018-09-04 02:00:19 UTC  

And he kicked my ass pretty solidly

2018-09-04 02:43:03 UTC  

Who has some experience with massage balls/rollers? I’ve gotten to where my back and shoulder muscles stay so tense they’re almost always sore. I have curvature of the spine from a moto accident from when I was younger so that doesn’t help but I thought I might try one of these balls or rollers.

2018-09-04 02:58:19 UTC  

I do, but tbh it'd be very difficult to explain not in person

2018-09-04 03:14:21 UTC  

So you think they work? Is it something I could learn to use properly from YouTube or something

2018-09-04 03:27:56 UTC  

I've used them and got some relief

2018-09-04 04:11:52 UTC  

I think I’ll pick one up tomorrow and see how it goes.

2018-09-04 11:30:08 UTC  

@Suomi Stronk You + BJJ = deadly.

2018-09-04 14:12:56 UTC  

@JesseJames They can be very helpful but it has to be a consistent habit to have any real relief.

2018-09-04 20:17:13 UTC  

Crush it, brother! @Robtheroman

2018-09-05 00:00:42 UTC  

@JesseJames Foam rolling is clutch. I do not think I would be able to function without it. Remember that the tightness you feel can be stemming from other parts of the body, so roll out as much as you can. For example my lower back gets tight if I don't keep my hips loose

2018-09-05 15:13:46 UTC  

@Robtheroman payment processor good to go? Lol I think i still have three shirts in my cart.

2018-09-05 15:56:37 UTC  

Dude, nice! Very happy to see you back up. Looks like I need to make another order soon.

2018-09-05 21:16:59 UTC  

anyone else follow professional bodybuilding?

@Deleted User I was at the park today doing my routine, and two Asian guys showed up and started doing like 100 pull-ups each

2018-09-06 22:40:18 UTC  

Wiry little feckers, those Asians.

2018-09-07 00:30:18 UTC  

Haha. Were they big? Or lean

2018-09-07 00:36:01 UTC  

Asians are natural ninjas

2018-09-07 01:35:25 UTC  

100 pull-ups = skipped leg day

2018-09-07 03:52:37 UTC  

Iron path is useful for olympic lifters and any kind of weight training, pretty neat stuff. Free version only lets you keep 3 videos at a time, though.

2018-09-07 03:55:57 UTC  

---> it tracks the path of your bar from a side view.

2018-09-07 22:47:48 UTC  

@Pat-MA They ere 5'2 skinny af. They were explosive pulls, too. It was like being at the circus
