2018-04-09 00:25:05 UTC  

This cold snap were having is killing my gym time.

2018-04-09 00:26:26 UTC  

Garage gym and 35 degrees=gym cucking

2018-04-09 01:18:10 UTC  

Take cold showers and build cold tolerance

2018-04-09 01:19:56 UTC  

literaly just go outside in the cold more

2018-04-09 01:20:07 UTC  

and wear relatively warm enough clothes

2018-04-09 01:20:29 UTC  

you'll find once you get started, you'll be wanting to take layers off instead

2018-04-09 14:25:15 UTC  

Ya I start every workout in 3 layers, hoodie over sweatshirt over shirt. Then sweats over shorts. After two warmups Iā€™m gtg. I walk to my gym tho

2018-04-09 17:53:07 UTC  

So far April is a bust, I hate running on the treadmill

2018-04-09 18:36:56 UTC

2018-04-09 21:02:38 UTC  

White people run in the snow

2018-04-09 21:29:22 UTC  

It gets really icy and I don't want to fall

I'm just gonna binge watch Metapocalypse until it's changed

2018-04-10 00:22:10 UTC  

Just found the whole series on Hulu

2018-04-10 00:22:52 UTC  

You shouldn't need music if you're truly dedicated to gains...

2018-04-10 00:25:34 UTC  

I'd rather not listen to people speaking Spanish while I'm listening @The Huwhyte Ulf - VA

2018-04-10 00:37:01 UTC  

any cues to protect the low back on deadlifts? gets harder as I move up in weight

2018-04-10 00:43:32 UTC  

@Pat-MA My motto is if you're feeling it in your back, you're not doing it right. Focus more on using your legs and keep your chest up

2018-04-10 00:44:01 UTC  

but you definitely will feel it in your lower back to an extent though right?

2018-04-10 00:46:13 UTC  

To an extent, yes, but I fix it by proper stretching prior and after the workout

2018-04-10 00:46:49 UTC  

Focus on strengthening your lower back if you're having a lot of issues

2018-04-10 00:47:17 UTC  

I feel it in my low back a good amount. It doesnt hurt or anything

2018-04-10 00:47:28 UTC  

Also, try doing hex bar deadlifts if regular deadlifts are bothering you too much

2018-04-10 00:47:36 UTC  

isnt that the same thing as a squat though

2018-04-10 00:56:01 UTC  

Benedikt Magnusson told us at a seminar to lean back like you're almost falling backwards, then pull

2018-04-10 00:56:09 UTC  

It saves strain on the back

2018-04-10 00:56:38 UTC  

Unless you're doing sumo, in which case only God can help you

2018-04-10 00:57:10 UTC  

Not really, IMO. @Pat-MA

2018-04-10 00:59:19 UTC  

Appreciate it boys

2018-04-11 12:54:54 UTC  

Hex bar I feel in my glutes like a mofo. I work up to 4 sets of 5 then halve the plate number and go for 20

2018-04-15 18:37:49 UTC  

Last night I had my first workout on my new home gym. It was magical. I did squats, bench press, deadlift, and overhead press.

2018-04-15 21:40:18 UTC  

All of the essentials^

2018-04-15 22:38:12 UTC  

@ThisIsChris awesome bro. I'll add you to the list of guys I'm jealous of haha
