@Deleted User I'm pretty sure I was a few pounds above 200 at the time, maybe just about. I'm about 165 now.
You’ll run like a gazelle
Is this for real? 😂 http://sufferfestbeer.com/en/blog/posts/sufferfest/announcing-new-fkt-pale-ale
Quick, someone give me motivation to get my tired ass in the gym today
Our enemies are working while you relax if you don't go
@Robtheroman Whats your take on bare knuckle fighting? Does it display masculine virtues, or stupidity and barbarianism? Personally I would never get into that, I value my brain cells and face too much.
For my part, I'm for it.
Those new stickers are bad ass
Go to one minute in
@Pat-MA the bareknuckle thing would actually do wonders for head injury’s in fighting. The gloves are not to protect your head they’re to protect your hand. A fighters hand can only last for so many big shots without gloves before they can’t hit anymore.
So how does that prevent head injuries?
That is absolutely correct. In the pre-glove days of the UFC just about every fighter who fell out due to injury did so with a broken hand.
Do girls melt when you tell them badass stuff like that
Yeah I was up front shooeing away the rainbow vestment clergy.
How often do you guys max out
Realistically, maybe every 3 months just to adjust my percentages on my program
Doing max weight too often has more cons than pros
Have you all ever done Bar Bros routines? You're all probably really against it, but that's the type of stuff I did in HS, and I want to get back into it
First I’ve heard of it
It's just body weight stuff. They mostly do stuff on the bar (hence bar bros) like flagpoles and muscle ups
Oh damn, I just went on their website for the first time in years. These guys got gay as heck, son
And very obviously don't just do body weight
I used to do this. I was doing pretty well, too. I could do 3x20 pistol squats, and 3x10 uneven pullups
Lots of SEALs stuff in there too
@John O - oddly enough my daughter is in to it some what. She is 11 and can do more pull ups than I can. She does a lot of these workouts on bars they teach in gymnastics. Including leg stuff so it’s a bit different than what you’re talking about but the same concept.
We've had this conversation before, but I always thought feats if athleticism were way more impressive than feats of strength
I need to know where to start in lifting
I’ve done calisthenics and running climbing etc
But I don’t know how to start on a proper bulk
He’s our designated fitness trainer
He’ll probably say starting strength
I may be perpetually stuck in marathon running
Endurance is perhaps the realm I’ll have to stick to
I max out at meets
I don't max out in traininh
