How often do you guys max out

2018-06-10 18:36:32 UTC  


2018-06-10 18:37:55 UTC  

Realistically, maybe every 3 months just to adjust my percentages on my program

2018-06-10 18:38:22 UTC  

Doing max weight too often has more cons than pros

2018-06-11 20:24:59 UTC  

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

2018-06-11 21:19:10 UTC  

First I’ve heard of it

2018-06-11 21:26:34 UTC  

It's just body weight stuff. They mostly do stuff on the bar (hence bar bros) like flagpoles and muscle ups

2018-06-11 21:33:52 UTC  

Oh damn, I just went on their website for the first time in years. These guys got gay as heck, son

2018-06-11 21:34:12 UTC  

And very obviously don't just do body weight

2018-06-11 21:40:10 UTC  

I used to do this. I was doing pretty well, too. I could do 3x20 pistol squats, and 3x10 uneven pullups

2018-06-11 22:53:00 UTC  

Lots of SEALs stuff in there too

2018-06-13 13:14:09 UTC  

@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

2018-06-13 16:39:39 UTC  

I need to know where to start in lifting

2018-06-13 16:40:12 UTC  

I’ve done calisthenics and running climbing etc

2018-06-13 16:40:22 UTC  

But I don’t know how to start on a proper bulk

He’s our designated fitness trainer

2018-06-13 16:59:29 UTC  

He’ll probably say starting strength

2018-06-13 17:01:32 UTC  

I may be perpetually stuck in marathon running

2018-06-13 17:02:08 UTC  

Endurance is perhaps the realm I’ll have to stick to

2018-06-13 17:14:02 UTC  

I max out at meets

2018-06-13 17:14:17 UTC  

I don't max out in traininh

2018-06-13 17:14:22 UTC  


2018-06-13 18:00:31 UTC  

It'd be better if I could talk to you instead of chat, tbh @Francis V

2018-06-13 18:02:02 UTC  

I’ll be off work in 5 hours

2018-06-13 18:02:06 UTC  

I’ll let ye know

2018-06-13 18:05:12 UTC  


2018-06-14 15:54:16 UTC  

Did 8km last evening

2018-06-14 15:54:45 UTC  

Considering making it a tri weekly run

2018-06-14 15:55:11 UTC  

It’s a square course around my section of he city

2018-06-14 15:55:46 UTC  

It had been a long time since my eyebrows were dripping sweat onto my cheeks tbh

2018-06-14 15:56:08 UTC  

Like 20 minutes after and you’re still pouring swea

Mt Williamson, 14,380’ my brother and I summited but it was a grind, I’m in pain. 28 miles 10,000’ elevation gain and no trail
